Very happy to have my good friend Joya Fields back on the blog today to celebrate her new release, Altered Frequency (Hauntings at Inner Harbor #2). She wanted to share some fun research she got to do for the book. So, read on...
Thanks so very much for having me back on your wonderful blog, Laura. You have the most amazing readers and followers, and I always have a blast when I stop by. I’m popping in today to chat about how much fun it was to research my latest release, Altered Frequency (Hauntings at
Book 2). Inner Harbor
Altered Frequency features a heroine who is a deejay and a hero who’s a cop. And a matchmaking ghost! Well, I know a lot about police because I also write suspense. And I know a little about ghosts because I’ve written another ghost story. But writing a deejay was new to me. There’s a local radio station here in Baltimore, WLIF, with a deejay that plays dedications on a night-time show. She has a diverse following—people of all ages love her show. I contacted the deejay,
Fran Lane, about a potential fact-finding
interview and she kindly invited me to the station.
How cool was that? I got to meet Fran, who was every bit as beautiful as the photo of the heroine I’d already picked out (she liked that the hero I’d picked was Keanu Reeves), and got an insiders’ look at the entire station from the break room to the on-air studio. Then we settled in her studio for an interview and she answered a ton of questions. And here’s the thing: Once I finished the interview, I wanted to keep talking because she has the sort of soothing, kind voice you want to listen to all day long.
Meeting Fran, and touring the station, made Altered Frequency much more realistic than it ever would have been if I hadn’t had the chance to visit the station. Being an author is a lot of fun every single day, but on this particular day, it was extra fun because, once I got home, it only took me three weeks to write the entire story.
Thanks very much for stopping by today. Altered Frequency (Hauntings at Inner Harbor. Book 2) is now available and I’m giving away an e-copy of the first book in the series, Hereafter (Book 1, Hauntings at Inner Harbor) along with a hot-off-the-presses set of Romance Trading Cards for Altered Frequency to a commenter today.
