Title: Cowboy Town
Author: Kasey Millstead
Series: Down Under Cowboys #1
Publication: July 18th, 2013 
Category: Adult
Genre: Romance
Ever since her parents passed away in a tragic car accident, Eden Cross has been living a quiet, stable and predictable life in inner Sydney – the total opposite of her carefree, relaxed, happy-go-lucky past. Her parents passing and the fact she’s an only child meant Eden was left with her best friend, Jules and Matt, her boyfriend of three years as her only family. That was until she discovered something about Matt that would turn her life upside down. Eden leaves Sydney in a hurry and begins an adventure that takes her across four Australian states before she lands in Pine Creek, Northern Territory.
Jackson Henley has lived in Pine Creek his entire life. He runs a massive cattle and cropping station with his twin brother, Jeremy, which they inherited when their parents retired. He’s had a bad experience with relationships courtesy of The Bitch - Dannika, so lately he’s preferred to play the field. That is, until he comes face to face with the stunning brunette beauty who’s behind the bar at the Cow and Calf. The problem is, she won’t tell him her name, she won’t give him the time of day, and she won’t give him a chance to prove himself.
What’s it going to take for Eden to give Jackson a chance? Does he have the patience to even bother fighting for her? How will he handle the competition?
In the end, will Jackson have what it takes to convince Eden to start living again, instead of just existing? 


Interview with the author!

• Describe Cowboy Town in one sentence.
Cowboy Town is a hot, sexy, sweet romance that is set in Australia Northern Territory.

• What inspired the idea behind the book?
I wanted to write what I knew.  I live in a small country town and my husband is a farmer.  My brother is helicopter musterer in the Northern Territory, so it’s a life I know a lot about.

• What was the most fun part of writing it?
Honestly, I really enjoyed writing all of it.  But if I had to pick one part, I’d have to say the epilogue.  It’s a chapter full of funny, sweet, tender and heartwarming scenes with one-liners that come from personal moments in my own life.

• What was the most challenging?
This book flowed pretty freely from me, but I could’ve done without the visuals of Edie and Matt’s Slam, bam, thank you Ma’am scene. ;)

Cowboy Town is the first book of the Down Under Cowboys series. How many installments do you plan on being in the series, and can you tell us a little about it?
I’ve got another three books planned for this series.  Up next is Sky Cowboy.  It’s Ava and Jeremy’s story.  After that is Jules and Clay’s story in Cowboy Dreams.  Then I’ll be releasing a novel, which will be divided into three sections.  Each section will be an extended epilogue for each couple.  Sky Cowboy is due out early October 2013

• What makes a true cowboy, in your opinion? 
Wrangler or RM Williams jeans, cowboy boots, cowboy hat, calloused hands, tough on the outside but sweet and tender underneath.

• This book is only one of your published works, but how does it feel to have another story out there in the hands of readers and reviewers? Any different than when you published your first book?
It’s nerve-wracking every time you hit the publish button, and then there’s the excruciating wait to see if people enjoyed reading your work.  I don’t think it matters how many times you’ve published – you still get butterflies and nerves, and you still worry about how your book will be received.   

• Besides writing, what other artistic talents do you have?
Other than writing, I’m not very artistic at all.  I like to scrapbook and I like to bake. I can decorate a cake pretty good J

• You're stressed. What's the first thing you do or reach for?
Menthol cigarettes or Cadbury Chocolate!

• What book are you currently writing?
Sky Cowboy – Ava and Jeremy’s story

• What advice would you give aspiring authors?
Don’t overthink things.  Don’t’ let negative reviews get to you. Just write what you write – that’s all you can do and hopefully people will like you.

• Last but not least, who is your favorite (fictional) cowboy of all time?
Hmm.  I was going to say George Strait…but you said ‘fictional’ so I’m going to have to go with Jackson Henley from Cowboy Town. Although his identical twin, Jeremy, is slowing pushing him off the pedestal with every word I write in Sky Cowboy!!!

Author bio: 

* I'm 29 years old
* I've been married to my husband Troy for 10 years and together we have 4 children – Zach, Jovi, Demi, and Cruz.
* I live in a small country town in NSW, Australia
* I love to read and write
* I love to bake
* I love socializing
* My friends laugh at me because I will talk to anyone, anywhere. It's funny now but it wasn't so funny for my mum when she had to drag me away from strange homeless people at the train station when I was little, and I may or may not have been going to go in crop dusting plane with a man I'd just met when I was about 4!!
* I read fiction until I was 11 years old. After that I read non-fiction, true crime, bios etc. When my son Jovi drowned in 2011, I found I couldn't bring myself to read non-fiction anymore – it was too "real." Fifty Shades was dominating the media so I got myself a copy and I'm not ashamed to say I read all three of those books at least ten times each. They allowed me to forget my reality for a little while. Then I decided that I was going to follow my dreams and write. I wanted to show my children that just because their brother died, didn't mean they did or our family did. I want them to reach for the stars and chase their dreams, and the best way to do that is to lead by example!
