Salvaging Truth (Hunters & Seekers Book 1) by Joanne Jaytanie is on virtual book tour.

The romantic suspense (action adventure) stops at Readeropolis with an author interview.

Be sure to enter for a chance to win the giveaway for a $40 Amazon GC and follow the Silver Dagger book tour (for other dates see the link at the bottom of the post).

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
I don’t believe in chasing the wave. You’ll always be behind it. I write the story I want to write. The story I enjoy writing. The story that I get so wrapped up in that I’m plotting what comes next, even when I’m in the shower, cooking dinner, or out with the dog. If I don’t love my story, what makes me think the readers will?

Do you believe in writer’s block?
No, I don’t. I do believe in lack of focus, being distracted, not liking what you’re writing, and avoiding it. I’ve done all of these things at one time or another.

How did you come up with the title of your first novel?
My debut novel was Chasing Victory. I love the name Victory. I remember lists after lists of ideas on title combinations. Chasing just stuck. I based it on one of the primary threads in the story. I still use the same process. I want a title that resonates with the story.

Are your characters based off real people,
or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
My characters are a combination of real people and my imagination. I’m a people watcher. I find it interesting to uncover the habits and expressions people use. I use these characteristics and mix them with my imagination to create the perfect characters for my story. 

Salvaging Truth
Hunters & Seekers Book 1
by Joanne Jaytanie
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Action, Adventure

"A sprightly plotted thriller and dynamic characters should leave readers eager for the sequel."
-Kirkus Reviews

The world could be transformed if Riley can only stay alive long enough.

Most parents leave you a house, a car, or money when they die. Riley's mom left her a treasure hunt with a mysterious payoff. Now everyone seems to want a piece of Riley and her inheritance: the university, the military, mega corporations, and Russian spies.

Riley needs help to solve her mother's murder, and Dagger Easton's salvage and investigation company comes to her rescue. Retired SEAL, private eye, and leader of a diving and salvage team, Dagger promises to protect Riley with his life. But as the value of her mother's research becomes clear, Riley begins to believe there's no one she can trust--not with her life, her heart, or her mother's legacy.

Joanne was born and raised in Sherburne, New York, a quaint village surrounded by dairy farms and rolling hills. From the moment she could read she wanted to explore the world. During her college years, she slowly crept across the country, stopping along the way in Oklahoma, California, and finally Washington State, which she now proudly calls home. She lives with her husband and Dobermans, in their home located on the Olympic Peninsula with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains.

Joanne writes romantic suspense, paranormal, mystery-thriller, supernatural suspense, and contemporary romance. She loves to submerge herself in the world of her characters, to live and breathe their lives and marvel at their decisions and predicaments. She enjoys a wide variety of books including paranormal, suspense, thriller, and of course romance.

Joanne is a PAN member of Romance Writers of America, (RWA), Kiss of Death, (KOD), Greater Seattle Romance Writers Chapter, (GSRWA), Sisters In Crime (SIC), and Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal, (FFPRWA). She served as President of Peninsula Romance Writers, which was Debbie Macomber’s home chapter.
