Tour for Make Me Crazy by Codi Gary

An obsessive bookworm for twenty years, Codi Gary likes to write sexy small-town contemporary romances with humor, grand gestures, and blush-worthy moments. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading her favorite authors, squealing over her must-watch shows and playing with her children. She lives in Idaho with her family. Visit her website for latest news, social media, or just to say hi!

1. At any given time do you work on only one story at a time and maybe plot out the next one or are there many ideas racing around your head? I work on only one story at a time, but if I get a good idea, I write down some notes, usually about a paragraph long and save it. There are tons of ideas, but I have to work on them singularly or they would never get finished.

2. Is there a genre you haven't written in but would like to? Or wish you could write in? NA and Historical, although historical scares me because of how many experts read the genre and I’d hate to write inaccurately.

3. Do you add an element of romantic suspense in your stories? Not usually, unless it calls for it, like with my Halloween Novella, One Crazy Night.

4. Say you have unlimited funds: What kind of writing office/cottage would you create for yourself? It would be a one bedroom with a bathroom and kitchen. My office would have wall to wall book shelves except for where my desk sits, I’d have a giant tub and shower for thinking and relaxing, and a fully stocked kitchen for snacking and brain fuel!

5. If you could turn your novel into a TV show, which novel or series would you do? Where would it be set? Network TV (ABC, NBC, CBS), Cable (AMC, BBC, Lifetime) or Premium Cable (HBO, Showtime, Starz)? I would like my Loco, Texas series on the CW, because it’s one of my favorite channels (still not over them cancelling Ringer and Emily Owens, but I am trying to get over it).

6. Finally, tell us about your latest release! I Want Crazy is a follow up to Make Me Crazy, and is about Red Calhoun. Red is best friends with the hero/heroine from Make Me Crazy and he is in a bit of a slump, made worse when he finds out his favorite bar is closed for renovations. When he bangs on the door and demands to talk to the new owner, he meets Jessie, the feisty blond from California that doesn’t take his guff. These two were a lot of fun to write and I hope you enjoy them.

Miranda “Rand” Coleman has seen the way love can wreck a person and wants absolutely no part of it. When her granddaddy dies suddenly, he leaves a clause in his will that has her married in three months or she loses her inheritance. Unwilling to give up the Double C Ranch, she starts to set her eyes towards the eligible men in town, with little luck in finding a man she can stand for a minute let alone a year. Until she sets eyes on the new veterinarian and enlists the help of her womanizing best friend, Jake, to help. 

Jake Hansen is a single guy who likes his women pretty and uncomplicated, with no plans to settle down anytime soon. When he decides to help Rand hook her man, he has no idea the effect watching Rand change would have on him. Especially when she starts letting her gorgeous brown hair down and showing off a body he didn’t even know she had. Before too long, Jake isn’t just lusting after his best friend, he’s feeling downright possessive. But when it comes down to the wire, will he get over his issues and step up to the alter…or lose the only woman he was ever meant to love?

Rand pulled her hand away from him and he covered his smile with his hand as she looked surprised by the compliment. “I don’t remember.”
Tandy leaned on the table and the woman’s look was downright sultry. “Well it looks awesome on you.”
Jake blinked. The girl wasn’t being friendly. She was flirting...with Rand.
Rand seemed oblivious to Tandy’s interest. “I got it as a present for my birthday, and was going to take it back, but my granddaddy couldn’t find the receipt.”
Tandy actually batted her lashes. “Well that would have been a damn shame.”
Alright, it was funny at first but that was too much. “I’ll have the chicken enchiladas with two tacos.” Both women turned to stare at him and he focused all of his attention on Rand, “Honey, what do you want to eat?”
Rand looked back up at Tandy when she answered. “I’ll have a bean and cheese burrito with rice and beans.”
“Coming right up.” Tandy said.           Her smiled faded when her gaze shifted to him, her expression downright hostile. This time he watched her walk away and turned back to Rand with wide eyes. “Did you see that?”
“You checking out our waitress?” Rand asked with false sweetness.           It was his turn to be angry. “No, the glare she sent me.” “Right because women usually glare at you.”            Jake said very patiently, “Rand honey, I have no interest in that woman and I’m telling you, I am not her type.”           “How do you know that?” He leaned back in his seat and grinned. “Because it wasn’t me she was checking out.”
Codi will be awarding a signed copy of Make Me Crazy to a randomly drawn commenter at every stop (US ONLY) during the tour; and a Grand Prize of a $25 Amazon/BN GC plus a signed copy of Make Me Crazy (US ONLY) will be awarded to one randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
