What’s on tap tonight?
Viviana MacKade, author of His Midnight Sun, is my kind of gal! Tea and margaritas! Let’s go, girl!
All right. The prompt here is your go-to drink for writing.
I think that the topic has to be split in 2:
- the go-to drink for when I wrote
- the go-to drink for the after writing
The first one is a nice, cool herbal tea with no sugar. At this stage, while I’m writing, I’m a compulsive drinker. It means I write a few words, I drink. Then I finish the paragraph, and drink. Then I stop to think about the sentence, and I drink some more. I can take down half a gallon hibiscus tea or some other crap like that in a 4-hour session of work.
My favorites are Peppermint Tea, Lemon and Ginger, Lemon Lavender, and Wild Berries.
About the second one, the after writing go-to drink, things change a bit because at that point I’m tired, frustrated (if my character didn’t collaborate which, with Aidan, happened daily). Or vaguely depressed for low sales or a bad review. That’s when Miss Margarita waltzes in.
There’s an Irish pub close to our place (note: we and all of our friends live less than ten miles from each other, so that pub is the one close to everybody). That pub makes mean Margaritas. On the strong side, if you ask me, but hey, that’s what I’m looking for at that point. They also have fantastic fish and chips to go with the drink, but I’m digressing.
So here you have it, my go-to drinks!
His Midnight Sun
by Viviana MacKade
Tormented, fierce, and broken, sculptor Aidan Murphy has judged himself guilty. He yearns for love but pushes everyone away. He longs for acceptance but has lost the key to open his heart. Until he meets Summer Williams. Beautiful and smart, Dr. Williams promises haven for a man who believes he deserves none. All he has to do is let her in and risk his heart and soul.
Summer’s managed to keep her inner light alive, even through tragedy. She’s created a new life for herself and her daughter in Crescent Creek with loving, caring and fun friends–well, except brooding, breathtaking Aidan. She’s used to keeping away from his type, though. All she has to do is ignore the pull of a man who’s turning up to be much more than snarls and storms. Will her compassion and medical instincts let her?
Love can heal a broken soul and shake up a timid heart. Or it can unleash devastation and revenge.
Will Aidan and Summer survive the hurricane?

Beach bum and country music addicted, Viviana lives in a small Floridian town with her husband and her son, her die-hard fans and personal cheer squad. She spends her days between typing on her beloved keyboard, playing in the pool with her boy, and eating whatever her husband puts on her plate (the guy is that good, and she really loves eating). Besides beaching, she enjoys long walks, horse-riding, hiking, and pretty much whatever she can do outside with her family.
