Blog Tour - Giveaway, Interview, Ch 1, REACHING OUT FOR YOU by S. Moose

with S. Moore

Welcome S. Moore I am so excited to have you here at Just One More Romance. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to sit down for an interview. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? 

My name is Saoching Moose and I am writing as S.Moose. I live in Webster, NY with my husband. I love spending time with my family and friends. Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons because I get to be outside going to the beach, going for walks, having BBQ's and just relaxing.

I graduated from St. John Fisher College in 2011-best school ever. I learned so much from my professors and peers during my time at Fisher.

I love reading-I'm a sucker for romance and a happy ending. I love reading books by Indie authors. There's something about their words that pull me in.

I want to inspire people with my words and make a difference. I love writing and hearing how my book made someone smile or realize how strong they are. It's a powerful thing to hear that your words are helping someone get through something difficult.

You have a new book that recently came out titled Reaching Out For You. Can you give us a short description of the book? 

Reaching Out For You is about finding yourself and realizing your own worth.

It follows Sophia, four years later, and she's in college trying to start her life again. She is happy, for the most part, but something is missing from her life. Her old best friend, Adam, comes back into her life and things are great again. But, Sophia is dating Kyle. Kyle is a romantic and sweet boyfriend. He's caring and loves Sophia until the doors are closed. Sophia does get abused by Kyle and she's holding that secret. When she does find the strength to leave him, will she be able to give herself to Adam.

Now will Sophia be able to let Adam in? Will she have her happily ever after?

Is Reaching Out For You a standalone or a part of a series?

It is the first book in the Never Letting Go series.

Where did you drawl inspiration for this story? 

My husband pushed me to write. He liked the idea of incorporating abuse in my story and showing people that life isn't always perfect, even in books. I wanted to write something powerful and moving-to create commotion.

In Reaching Out For You, who was your favorite and/or most difficult character to write?

Sophia was my favorite to write but honestly, it was hard to write Adam. I wanted to make him loveable-to be the boy next door. It was hard because I knew how I wanted to be viewed but there were so many scenes I had to delete.

I didn’t want him to yell at Sophia or push her too hard. He’s protective over her and wants her to be happy. There are many parts in the book that make you wonder-why is he trying so hard?

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I have always known I wanted to become an author but never pursued it. It wasn’t until this year actually after I read Forever Black by Sandi Lynn that I was inspired to write. The self-published world is so new to me and I didn’t think it would be possible. With Sandi’s help along with so many amazing authors, I am where I am today-no regrets.

Who are some of your favorite authors or favorite books? 

Oh gosh are you ready? I have a very long list!

Sandi Lynn, Kendall Ryan, A. Meredith Walters, A.L Jackson, Michelle Valentine, Cora Carmack, Jessica Sorenson, E.L James, Teresa Mummert, Dawn Martens, Glenna Maynard, Brooke Cumberland, Nickie Seidler, Carey Heywood, L.Chapman and Melissa Collins. 

When writing are you more productive in the morning or at night?

At night.

Do you plan and outline your books before you start writing or just go where your characters take you? 

I go with the flow. It’s terrible! I have a memory like a gold fish so sometimes I have to go back and see what colored eyes I described for my characters!

Now some fun questions. I love all things romantic.....

Most romantic destination? 

Italy! DREAM vacation *hint hint husband of mine!

Favorite romantic dessert?

Chocolate covered strawberries!

Love or Lust? 


Who would be your prince charming? 

Oh goodness. Um. Shh my husband can’t find out but honestly, Christian Grey! Sorry but he took my romance/erotica virginity and every time I say NDA, I giggle. Yes I know mature!

Thank you so much S. Moore for taking the time to let us interview you.

Thank you so much for interviewing me! I had so much fun!
