Can you tell me a bit about your most recent release/upcoming release?
"Paige's Passion" blurb Paige is sent on a business trip and invites her good friend Madeline to go with her. They’ve been lusting after each other for some time but Paige was worried that taking the step to a sexual relationship might destroy their friendship. At the end of the second night they are committed to an ongoing relationship together. But when they get back to their ordinary lives Paige is consumed by her job. Paige desperately wants the relationship to work, but her career is very important to her and Maddie is so easy-going. Can they ever be happy together?
STORY Excerpt WARNING Lesbian Romance "Shit, Paige, this's a really nice suite. Are you sure it's okay for me to be here with you?" asked Madeline, looking around at the solid wooden doors hiding the huge flat-screen TV and mini-bar, and at the ultra king-size bed. Paige opened the drapes wide, exposing a fantastic view ac…

My Personal Review for Seven Days by Andrew Grey

Image
I don't know about you but when I picked up my first Andrew Grey book, The Best Revenge, I didn't know I would find an author I just had to read over the next few years. Each time I grabbed the newest book from this author, I always thought, "He can't get any better than the last book" and I was always proven wrong. Andrew Grey is a talented writer, one I know will always deliver a story that will leave me crying, laughing and smiling-sometimes all at once too.

Seven Days is this author's brand new release and one that completely hooked me from the beginning. I can't imagine the emotions an author experiences when he writes a pivotal scene(s) yet when a reader like myself is bawling their eyes out because of something he/she has written, well all I can say is "Pass the tissues".

Mr. Grey delivers a strong, emotional story about one man's journey through loss and despair to finding that slim sliver of hope shining through when life closes one …

My Personal Review for Tyler's Cowboy by Amber Kell

Image
I got to admit...I wasn't sure what to expect with Tyler's Cowboy by Amber Kell. It was the first book I read by this 'new to me' author and I was pleasantly surprised by it. It's a character driven story that had me glued to the pages from the beginning.

The cover is what got me right off the bat. I admit...I am a bit of a cover snob. If a sexy cover catches my eye, I will pick it to see what is all about and man, who doesn't like those hot, chiseled bodies on a cover????

If you never read an Amber Kell book, I suggest you start with Tyler's Cowboy. It introduces her new series, Cowboy Lovin' and though it's a short novella, it packs quite a punch straight out of the box.

I loved how the characters of Tyler and Cody got to know one another before jumping into bed together. It was a welcome change for me to read and with a few twist I didn't anticipate, Ms. Kell does a great job in keeping her readers mesmerized.

Tyler's Cowboy is a sweet, …

Why don't you start with telling us a little about yourself? What genre do you write in and why? Well, I am a wife and mother of two. And in my previous life before children I was a costume designer.I write Contemporary Erotic Romance, but I am working on a LoTR fantasty romance at the moment. Tell us a bit about your latest book, and what inspired you to write such a story. Tony's Haven is the second book in the Sherman Family Series and after writing Hunting JC I knew that the readers didn't get to know the real Tony. He wasn't very likable but I knew the real Tony and I knew the readers would like him once they saw who he really was. I also wanted to write a book with a real size woman that most women could relate to.
Did your book require a lot of research? I love research and although I place my stories in places that I know, I still research to make sure.
If you could have any vice without repercussions, what would it be? Food. I love food
If you could have…

Can you tell me a bit about your most recent release/upcoming release? In my most recent release Michael, Archangel of War has been Banished to the mortal world. In the last year of his Banishment, he falls in love with Laine, a mortal. Warrior Angel, Heart’s Desire tells the story of what Michael and Laine have to do to stay together.

For any readers who may not have read any of your books, can you just give us a little sneak peak into world (i.e. the type of genre you write, type of stories you like to write....etc)? I write m/m paranormal romance. It’s not the classic “boy meets boy” romance. It’s more like romance/adventure. My characters have to fight against great odds and take incredible risks if they want to stay together. In the world I create Michael is Archangel of War, Raphael is Archangel of Healing and Lucifer is Archangel of Hell. They’re brothers who may disagree, but ultimately do what it takes to help each other. Azriel is a Hunter angel who used to be a …

Can you tell me a bit about your most recent release?
The Thrice Princess is a paranormal romance about vampires, gods, fairies, demons, and just about every other paranormal being you can think of.  Its a story of love and the beginning of a new life and new series.

For any readers who may not have read any of your books, can you just give us a little sneak peak into world?
I write mostly a paranormal/contemporary.  I tend to like the modern technology to much to venture any further then that ;0).

How much of yourself, if any, do you put into your characters?
It just depends in all they have a bit of my characteristics but some have more then others.

How do you keep sex scenes fresh and exciting so they don't become stale or repetitive?
I haven't had that many books come out that this is an issue yet but I think its just imagination and fantasy mixed in.

If you could throw a party with any five people (living or dead) who would you pick and why?
Wow this one is a hard one. My choice i…

My Personal Review for Sheriff Found by Joyee Flynn

Image
I love Joyee Flynn and her active imagination. When I picked up Sheriff Found I was expecting a traditional shifter story. Well that was changed when the shifter hero was a beagle puppy. I haven't read anything like this before. It charmed me from the first page to the last as I got invested in the characters of Sheriff Found.

Now onto my personal review for Sheriff Found, available at Siren books, Amazon kindle and in ebook or print.

Toby Walker is sent out to the nearest town to find a cure for the illness plaguing his pack. As a beagle pup, he never anticipates finding his mate or that the legends he was told about when he was a kid is actually true. What can he do to convince his new found mate that he is more than a cute beagle puppy?
Sheriff Randall Markins day just went to the dogs…or one cute beagle puppy in fact. The one that just peed on his leg and he had to take home due to some illness he had. What he doesn’t anticipate is that this puppy is also one hot man…one that ju…

My Personal Review for The Lancaster Rule by T. K. Toppin

Image
I had the pleasure of reading a wonderful high octane science fiction story that left me wanting more. The Lancaster Rule is a wonderful blend of action/adventure, sci-fi, time travel and more. This is from a new to me author, TK Toppin and she does a great job in creating a cast of characters so life like, they felt like they would step off the page & into my living room.

Now onto my personal review for THE LANCASTER RULE (available at Champagne Books HERE)

Josie Bettencourt never anticipated going into her father’s suspension pod would last longer than the sixty days she thought it would be. The world is changed from when she remembers it after waking up and the people who populate this time think people like Josie aka Pod survivors, are to be arrested and destroyed. Saved by a rebel group, Josie finds herself running from the leaders, The Lancaster's', who have tyrannically run the last fifty years. Now Josie has to fight for her freedom and her life as she finds that he…

WRITER'S WRITE...WRITING PARTNERS FEUD

Image
We'd like to chat about what inspired us to write, where we get our ideas, and our creative differences.

About inspiration:

A: As a child, I adored being read to, but I also enjoyed watching the expressions on my family's faces as they read to me. They were as entertained as I reading the adventures of Princesses, of mice, of frogs, of siblings, of witches, and more. These fairy tales inspired me so much that I decided I wanted to entertain my family with my own stories, written, at first, in the cave man style of pictures, and then as I learned to write, by self-publishing my own little books. And, I haven't stopped, going from crayons and paper to a typewriter with a sticky L key to finally computers. I started to write to entertain, and I confess, it is now an addiction that I never wish to cure.

Z: The pretentious answer would be the power and influence I saw in the words of Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. And that would be true. But it is more complicated. I wr…

Guest Author Day with Avril Ashton

I love my community. And by that I mean the writing community. In the short time I started writing professionally, I’ve been embraced by the warmest, funniest, most talented, and completely insane group of people ever.
It’s always a surprise when I say I’m quiet in real life, exceptionally aloof, and kinda bad at the whole communication thingy. Yet and still, I can’t be that way when dealing with my crazy pals over the ‘net. I find I can be someone with them, someone more Me. I can let my hair down—what’s left after I tear them off, and laugh, joke, cry, and bitch about whatever. Whenever.
These not-entirely-faceless people get me, and understand me, and can relate to whatever I’m going through in my writing life. They’ve been there, done it, and survived to tell the tale. It warms my heart—which debunks the theory that I’m a heartless bitch—when an author reaches out to offer help, suggestions, advice. And even inspiration, though they might not know it.
I always tear up when an author …
