On this week’s Author Spotlight I would like to welcome Linda O’Connor, author of Perfectly Honest. She stopped by to tell us a little bit about herself and creating her first ever book trailer. Enjoy.
Creating the trailer…
Just after Christmas, I recorded a book trailer video for Perfectly Honest. My son’s bedroom had the perfect green wall for a green screen effect. My son picked the color when he was younger, and I remember trying to talk him out of something so bright. Luckily he insisted! Sandy James, one of my son’s friends and a recent graduate of the Radio and Television Arts program at Ryerson University, set up the ‘studio’ with lights and sound. We filmed 3 versions – one line by line and two without stopping. Sandy did a fantastic job editing, adding the cartoons, and choosing the music. The result is fun and light-hearted, which I love. View the trailer for Perfectly Honest here.
You never know where your words will take you…
When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s ‘fiancée’ for a weekend, she probably should have told him that she’s a doctor.
Sam O’Brien, aka ‘Dr. Eye Candy’, is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his ‘fiancée’ helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his ‘fiancée’ ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted.
Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!

I’ve been writing romance novels for three years and sincerely thank Debby Gilbert at Soul Mate Publishing for the ultimate encouragement to my writing – with the leap to publishing. I have many titles including Doctor, Mom, and proud Canadian, but “Linda O’Connor – hereinafter called the Author” on the SMP contract was one of the sweetest.
Contemporary romantic comedies are my favorite novels to read and write. I balance writing with my work as a physician at an Urgent Care Clinic and being a mom to three sons (luckily grown and capable of throwing together a decent meal, in a pinch). I also like to keep active and cycle, cross-country ski, skate, walk with my husband, or dance every day.
Laugh every day. Love every minute.
