Welcome Margie Church today

Please give a warm welcome to my friend and talented author, Margie Church.

To get us started can you tell us a little about what you are working on or have coming out?
I'm writing Love on the Airwaves, which is a fantastic MM erotic romance. It's about a voice-over actor and a school teacher. Opposites attract in this story. Stiegen's huge dollop of celebrity lifestyle is balanced with Porter's very grounded, laidback perspective. I've written about 60% of the book. My characters have threatened to find another author if I don't get this baby finished pronto!

Other things? The re-release of WET from Sizzler Editions is still promised this month. Deep Enough to Bleed, an amazing New Adult novel will be out from Tirgearr Publishing in February 2014. The Camera Never Lies and Coming Back for Drew (both MM) from Ellora's Cave should be out toward the end of the first quarter 2014.

I'm so anxious to get my backlist healthy again! I can't thank these amazing publishers enough for giving me the nod.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Manicures – the gel polishes are fabulous. Reading the daily newspaper. I actually get up earlier so I have enough time to read before I go to work.

Name one thing readers would be surprised to know about you.
I did not like living in a big family at all.

How do you get yourself in the mood to write?
I sit at the keyboard. Period. A blank screen and a keyboard are the keys to the playground for me.

If someone hasn't read any of your work, what book would you recommend that they start with and why?
Wet. It's M/F so it's very approachable from the traditional reader perspective. It's very erotic but nothing outrageous. There're strong emotional ties between Noah and Reagan – you'll know it's a romance. It's funny at times, poignant at others – the little boy in the story cracks me up.

Coffee, tea or other drink to get you moving in the morning? 
Eight cups of black coffee, please!

If you had a reporter follow you around for the day, what would the readers get to see in your daily schedule? 
An early rise and commute to the nuclear power plant. My day is filled with putting out the site's version of the daily e-newsletter, videos, meetings, and burning brain cells on learning about the nuclear business. It's fast-paced, varied and challenging. After work, it's family time with dinner, homework, scouts, school projects, chores and errands. I try to squeeze in a couple hours of email, blogging and author promotions. Sometimes I get some actual writing done, but I generally have to save up the big writing push for the weekend. I cap off my day with Days of Our Lives and usually hit the sack by 10:00 p.m. Thrilling, eh?

The 18th Floor
The Enhanced Version
Genre: BDSM erotic romance
Publisher: Sizzler Editions
Available at Amazon

Alexa Robbins is so consumed by her career, the only sex she has is listening to her nymphomaniac neighbors go at it. When Sebastian Law discovers her in the eighteenth floor conference room early one morning, the table becomes a pallet for making one of her fantasies come true. Will he enjoy her extensive repertoire?

On the outside, Sebastian appears a buttoned-up, well-dressed, techno geek. Inside, he's a Dom with a hearty appetite for all types of carnal pleasures. He risks alienating Alexa by revealing his true nature, but he won't keep the secret for long.

Together, they explore all the things that turn them on. And discover whether they're a perfect match for life beyond the 18th Floor.

(This edition features 25% more new content. If it's possible for Alexa and her delicious Dom, Sebastian, to get kinkier, they did.)

Adult Excerpt:
Alexa's high heels clicking against the concrete created a sharp contrast to the muffled thump of Curt's rubber-soled shoes the next morning. As usual, the security guard escorted her into the building at six-thirty.
Alexa pressed number eighteen on the elevator pad. "See you tomorrow, Curt."
"Sure. Have a good one." Grinning, he gave her a two-finger salute.
The door slid shut and began its ascent. She sipped her vanilla latte with its extra shot of espresso, hoping the highly caffeinated brew would kick-start her brain and her ambition. Stepping into the carpeted hallway on the eighteenth floor, Alexa noticed another familiar person. Sebastian Law. She chewed on her lip, thinking about the powerfully built, mocha-skinned man who made her want to do naughty things to him whenever their paths crossed. Unfortunately, he didn't seem to pay much attention to her.
Starting up an office romance wasn't on her short list of wise career moves, but she'd spent plenty of time daydreaming about what was under the buttoned up exterior Sebastian cultivated with such care. Sebastian, or Sebi, his close friends called him, favored wearing dress slacks, long sleeved shirts, suspenders, and ties. The description was laughable until she saw how well he filled out his clothes. He walked the halls looking like a living GQ cover model five days a week. Tailored shirts clung to his broad-shouldered torso, and hinted of a well-toned body. And his ass looked so sweet. She was guilty as charged of frequently staring at his gorgeous rear as he walked down the hall. Some days it was all Alexa could do to keep from reaching out and caressing him as they passed in the hall.
Her nipples hardened thinking about the rest of his body. She guessed Sebastian was a few years older. As the company's lead technology contractor, Sebi's responsibilities matched his serious expression. But when he smiled . . . watching his lush lips part into a breathtaking grin distracted Alexa more times than she cared to admit. His mouth frequently became the object of her attention instead of the words he spoke. More than once, he'd had to repeat himself because of her lack of concentration.
Oh, I was concentrating all right—on what it would feel like to kiss you until you lost all your buttoned up control and fucked me right on the eighteenth floor conference table.
She reached the conference room at the conclusion of that thought. Her breath hitched in her throat. There won't be anyone around for another hour. She'd been coming in early long enough to know.
Alexa couldn't resist walking inside. The room temperature was much cooler than the hallway. She left the lights off and walked to the large oval table. Running her hand ran along the smooth top sent shivers up her spine.
What would mahogany feel like against my naked back?
The window blinds were wide open.
Anyone could watch us.
She closed her eyes and let the fantasy bloom in her sex-starved body until a groan left her lips and her pussy ached for relief.
