Wicked Wednesday with Carlene Love Flores

FloresSidewalk-Flower cover

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Funny you should ask…Trista and Lucky have this thing for a Mexican snack cake dessert called a Gansito.  It’s all kinds of chocolate, strawberry and creamy filling yumminess.  And it fits in the palm of your hand which makes for easy feeding to each other!

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

Sorry Grandma, but the cat is out of the bag…I was probably about nine or ten when I read my first romance novel.  But then there was this really long dry spell and I didn’t read another until about five years ago.  Now I’m eternally hooked.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

I love reading paranormal romance.  The myth and extraordinary worlds paranormal books can take you to are fabulous, but what I really love is how they allow for so much tragedy and then redemption.  I love those ones.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Oh no!  Do I really have to choose?  Three hot cuties just popped into mind for each…Bald-Theo Rossi, Short- Tom Hardy, Long—My Lucky from Sidewalk Flower. I will try and make a case for long hair…When your hero is leaning over you, don’t you want to see it hanging in his face and then have the excuse to sweep it back and tuck it behind his ear or leave it be to tickle your nose?  Hmm??

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I love the night.  But unfortunately, I’m a sleepy head, early to bed kind of girl.  So, this means I do most of my writing during the day, in my bedroom that I’ve made as dark as I possibly can and sometimes with a blanket over my head and laptop.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

Sure they do!  I personally think it’s sexiest when they’re shy about how to put the condom on, or it’s a “let me help you with that” kind of situation.  Of course then there’s Mother Nature’s birth control.  Trista is still upset with the powers that be and their horrible timing with what happened in Sidewalk Flower just as she and Lucky were about to be intimate for the first time.  But it gave Lucky the chance to be the gentleman she desperately needed.  I think that was sexy.
7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

Sure!  Sidewalk Flower was just released on January 11th by Evernight Publishing and it’s about a jaded young woman, Trista, who sets out on an intense road trip home to deal with her past when she is asked to allow a relative stranger to tag along.

But, she’s seen too many good guys succumb to the harsh realities of her supposed privileged life in the music business and intends on keeping her distance.

When she picks up Lucky, the southern gentleman cousin of her selfish best friend, she has absolutely no idea of how to accept a perfectly good person with good intentions.  Home has never looked so good, or felt so far away.

Wicked Wednesday with Kastil Eavenshade

EavenshadeRomanceNovel   EavenshadeTalbotsPlay   EavenshadeTheHeatofHisKiss

1. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I actually didn’t start getting romance books until around 18 years old. I was more of a high fantasy girl. Erm, the erotica, however, much earlier. I can neither confirm or deny finding my dad’s secret stash of smut books. I guess this is why my parents support me. 🙂

2. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

I love fantasy, always will. It really takes you away into another world. In some respects, since most fantasy takes its cues from historical places, I love a good historical because if it too.

3. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

I like long hair. Gives me something to tug on. 😉

4. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

Preferably, the afternoon works best for me but with having a job, I have to squeeze my time toward the evening. In my old house, I wrote in my crafting room. Having a laptop helps me move wherever I need to be. Now I have a room just for writing though it’s not set up yet.

5. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

For my historicals, they spill the seed outside the womb though I have employed certain old world drugs to prevent pregnancy. For contemporary, I just mention the ripping of the package and that’s it. The one thing I try to do with the condoms is that the characters are prepared. There’s no pause to go to the bathroom or dig through a purse. It’s a mood breaker. Much like your date making your feel-up more like a gyno appointment because he’s trying the find the mystical land known as the g-spot.

6. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

My latest release is a romantic comedy titled The Romance Novel Book Club. It’s a piece I’ve been working on off and on for a bit. I posted some chapters on a private writing site and got some great feedback. So I did something that’s been a monkey on my back. I finished it. It’s a light-hearted take on a thirty-something female who’s been through the ringer on every relationship and thinks the key to happiness is through reading romance novels. IN the end, she finds the courage to let go all her failures and stop looking for Mr Perfect and getting Mr He Gets Me. Her best friend in the novel was named after a very good friend of mine. I do have another book with the character planned but not started.

Right now I’m working on two projects. Talbot’s Seduction, a prequel to Talbot’s Ploy and another naughty fairytale based on Snow White titled the Forest Maiden.

Wicked Wednesday with Rose Anderson

AndersonRose

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

My Victorian characters Nicolas, Ellie, and Luca in Loving Leonardo spent some time in Paris. I could see them having a rich dish of chocolate ganache sent up with strawberries and champagne. It would all start innocently of course – between sips of champagne, strawberries would be dipped in chocolate. Chocolate being what it is, it would have to be licked off fingers. I can certainly see them running with that. 🙂

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I was 12 when I read Jane Eyre and I fell in love with the mysterious Mr. Rochester. I was 26 when I read my first Kathleen Woodiwiss and that hooked me to romance. Believe it or not, my first erotic story was my own Hermes Online!

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

I adore historicals. I spent a good many years of my life in historical clothing as a Living History presenter. I’ve only ever read two sci-fi’s in my life and one was absolutely horrible and completely threw me off the sub-genre. You have to suspend the reader’s disbelief for this type of book. The other belongs to fellow author Michele Hart and I found it a fabulously believable tale.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

I grew up in a Chicago neighborhood filled with black-haired olive-skinned men of Mediterranean descent and like a duckling, I imprinted on that standard of beauty. My husband had long hair when we met – beautiful, silky-soft, chestnut-colored hair. Oddly enough, every single hero in my books has one or the other short or long. You got me thinking about bald now. I loved Star Trek’s Jean Luc Picard too. lol

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

At 10 AM I kick butt. I work off my laptop at the kitchen table close to the coffee pot and accompanied by my cockatiels and dogs.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

It’s funny how times have changed. In my life I must have read hundreds of romance novels and never, not once in all those years, did I see a condom anywhere. Directed by my publisher’s editor I had to address this in Hermes Online (and in the end I managed to skirt the issue anyway), but Dreamscape and Loving Leonardo deals with sex in Victorian times. They had condoms back then but the need just didn’t arise when I wrote their love scenes. I see the point to safe sex because we live in a germy world, but do our fantasies need condoms? Do people really read our books and go stupid because they read literary characters not using protection? I don’t think so. Every way I can think of to write it in sexy comes out lame. Rolling down a condom just isn’t sexy to me as a reader. I personally think it detracts from the scene.

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

I just published Loving Leonardo, my first bisexual Polyamorous ménage set in 1897. My hero Nicolas Halstead is an art historian working for the famed Ashmolean museum and leads a somewhat normal life as of a man of means. He takes pains to hide his homosexuality from the world. One day Ellie comes to call and confronts him with it. To his incredulous disbelief she proposes marriage. It turns out she wants him to help her rescue a previously unknown work of Leonardo da Vinci – a book of love poems and erotic sketches from Leonardo to his gay lover Salai. How can Nicolas refuse? They race to Venice where the book is held by a man who has plans to destroy it for the vulgar thing he sees it as. Along the way they meet Luca and the three fall in love. While they come to redefine themselves, a man with a dark obsession comes into their lives. The story continues in the second book. I love these three so they may come back and have adventures in other novels.

Book 1 of The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo has just been released, a paranormal story inspired by a serious local urban legend. It’s steeped in Native American lore. I just finished the blurb. 🙂 Find it on Amazon.

Book 1 – Ashkewheteasu

What does an immortal Native American shaman do when the grave he’s sworn to watch over for all eternity disappears under urban development?

His purpose of guarding his wife’s burial mound gone, Ashkewheteasu seeks to end his immortal existence. In his despair, he assumes the form of a wolf and steps in front of a moving car and into the life of Dr. Olivia “Livie” Rosalini. The veterinarian saves the animal’s life, and in the process saves the man within. Unbeknownst to Livie, the dog she’s taken into her home and grows to love is a magical being seeking to win her heart as a man. While Ash is learning a new world filled with new love, friendship, and happiness, an old menace makes plans to steal it all away; just as he had 3000 years before.

Author details:

I’ve been happily married to my soul mate for the past 35 years and together raised our two children on one of the prettiest places on earth in America’s upper Midwest. We share our lives with five feathered and furred loved ones, and a loving and supportive extended family as well – family we were born into, and family built with dear friends. I’ve been writing for at least twenty years but kept it all to myself after several unsuccessful attempts to send manuscripts to New York knocked the wind from my sails. In the summer of 2010 all roads converged and before I knew it I became a published author. My goal is to learn all I can about this business through five romance novels, then take that knowledge and apply it to the series I’ve been working on for the past six years. Three romance novels are in print now and two to go! After that – love stories of a different sort.

Wicked Wednesday with J. Annas Walker

Walker-lostalchemist   Walker-scionsfreedom

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Cassy and David would go with chocolate syrup. As vampires, they could add a little blood and it wouldn’t show. Claire and Alistair would want whipped cream.

2. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Paranormal gives me a great chance to live through characters that have no possiblility of existing. It really does present a total fantasy. It does away with the limitations of the mudane world.

3. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Short hair. I’m just not into hairy men. I find it easier to write hotter scenes, if I find the guy’s attractive to me.

4. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I like to write really early in the morning, ie 4-6am. I don’t really have a choice as to where, as my computer is on a PC. I would love to have a laptop and write in bed.

5. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

None of my characters so far have used birth control. I can’t seem to make that part sexy. Also, for the most part, one or both of my characters are supernatural. That usually eliminates the need.

6. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

Right now I have a new project that blends several old mythology characters into a single story. They get to be themselves. The difference is the heroine. She is a new creature, the blending of a demi-goddess and a vampire, and is where the older characters’ paths cross. She starts off a sheltered misfit, but ends up being the key to the universe.

Wicked Wednesday with Tonya Ramagos

      

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Do ice cubes count? LOL That seems to be my character’s choice of food related items. Reese found a creative way to use an ice cube on Melody in Sports Beats [Rock Hard Seduction 3], Justin and Ben attempted to cool down Marissa’s heat in Marissa’s Rights [The Service Club 2], and, most recently, Jackson used an ice cube to drive Mallory wild in Sexual Games [The Heroes of Silver Springs 8].

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I was in my early twenties when I read my first romance novel. As a matter of fact, I remember the exact book, Having His Baby by Karen Young. I don’t remember the first erotica book I read, but I know it was about a year after I ventured into romance before I got hooked on erotica.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Truthfully, I love them all! I do tend to lean more toward contemporary or romantic suspense and if there’s MM or menage thrown in, even better.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

My heroes tend to have shorter or buzz gut hair. Since I write so many books with heroes in public service professions, the length of their hair tends to be regulation. Personally, I think men with shorter hair are sexier anyway. Of course, there are a select few out there who really make bald look wickedly hot.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I’m a morning person. If I sleep past 8 o’clock, I had a really late night. 🙂 In a house with 4 teenagers and a boyfriend, I find it easiest to write usually between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm, sometimes later if mommy life doesn’t take over.

My favorite place to write is my back deck. I love being outside where I’m not surrounded by the distractions of the domestic chores I haven’t yet done. It’s peaceful and I find it thought provoking. Of course, winter time makes it difficult. The cold either sends me inside or I learn to type while shivering my tail off. LOL

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

Hmm, honest answer? My characters forget to use birth control. Eek! That sounds awful, but I tend to get so caught up in the scene that I don’t think about putting on that condom until the scene is over. Lucky for me, and my characters, they’re all STD free and live happily ever after together so, if they make a baby, it’s okay.

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.
My latest release is Sexual Games, book 8 of The Heroes of Silver Springs series. This book is FBI agents Jackson Graham’s and Mallory Stone’s story with a M/M subplot of a budding relationship between Mallory’s brother, FBI agent Cameron Stone and Firefighter Thaddeus Carter. Jackson and Mallory first appeared in the series in book 2, Twin Games, where Jackson is mistaken for his twin brother Jason and ends up in a brief menage with Jason and his girlfriend Angelina. It was fun bringing these characters back into the series for their own story and, when Jackson and Mallory put their own spin of a few sex games, the heat really broke the thermometer!

I’m currently writing book 9 of The Heroes of Silver Springs, tentatively titled Going Under. This is a M/M/M story featuring FBI agent Cameron Stone, Firefighter Thaddeus Carter, and DEA agent Adrien Bingham. These three hunks have been emotionally tortured in the subplots of previous books in the series and the way their story is unfolding in Going Under is even surprising me! I’m having a blast writing this story and I can’t wait for fans to read it. So watch for it at Siren-Bookstrand this winter!

Wicked Wednesday with Clair de Lune

    

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Melted Cadbury’s chocolate.

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

At age seventeen I read “Room at the Top” and “Lady Chatterley’s Lover.”

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

I love BDSM, it’s edgy. I like the Love Slave for Two series. I like Kinbaku, not that there is much of that in novels yet. I am doing my best to remedy that. I  like a lot of genres. Club Esoteria is a favourite, as are The Desire series and Bliss to name but a few. In general there are so many good writers in romance these days that it’s hard to name just one genre. You can never get enough of a good thing!

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Long hair. It’s good for heroine to run her fingers through it. Different moods mean flowing free or tied back. He can use his hair creatively, to pleasure his lady.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

The answer to this is I don’t really have one yet. I always have a note book or my iPad so I can make notes. I went to Glasgow the other day and sat for a whole hour in the car and wrote. It was a sunny day, the windows were open, I had a flask of coffee, perfect. I am just as happy writing in bed or in the kitchen. I took my granddaughter to the Roman Army museum, she sat and coloured in the sheets provided. I got an idea for a story and sat scribbling furiously. My husband is resigned to sitting in the car, waiting until I get my notes finished before we do the shopping.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?
Yes, many of them do. Master Angus my favourite Dom did not, so he made himself and the heroine wait until they were tested. Then it was a free for all. If they are not yet sure they are going to be together then it’s condoms every time.

I make sure that the hero has the  heroine is so ready for it, begging for it, that she does not care so long as he gets it on and fast!

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.
My next book is not the second in the Prometheus in Chains series. That came out on October 17th. October 3rd saw the release of the first in a new series of historical mysteries, The Rotherham Hall Mysteries take place in Regency England. The Locket’s heroes are identical triplets, a ménage for lucky Lady Alicia. I have almost completed number seven in the Prometheus series. It has taken a while to get the story of Master Torquil and his Gemma sorted out but it is done and will be off to Siren this week.

Wicked Wednesday with Katherine Wyvern

     

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Honey.

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

Early to mid teens, I think. One of my grandmothers had a stash of naughty books tucked away among the dustiest and most ponderous tomes of her library. They helped me considerably in surviving some of the dullest, most interminable Sundays of my life. I wonder if she realized why I spent so much time reading in lonesome corners of her house when I was visiting.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

GLBT erotica with a fair bit of BDSM thrown in. I enjoy “different” sex combinations, and the emotional weight of SM scenes.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Bald. Seems all the hot men I like at the moment are bald. I came to the conclusion that long hair is for My Little Ponies. Hot studs can obviously do without.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

Mostly the afternoon. Somewhere quiet in the woods is best, unless I can have the home to myself. I need solitude.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

All my stories are fantasy or sci-fi, so I never felt the need to mention condoms. If I were writing real-world stories I would, though. The only condom scene I ever wrote was in a sci-fi context where it was obvious that the condom was an outdated quirk, and added to the kinky, latex-wrapped feel of the scene. I liked writing that!
7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

My latest release is The Garden of a Thousand Nightingales, which is a very tender, dreamlike fantasy story, quite different from my more hard-core Evernight titles. At the moment I am writing an equally dreamlike but much hotter fantasy tale loosely based on the old British ballad Elfin Knight. I hope to finish it by Xmas, fingers and toes firmly crossed.

Wicked Wednesday with Michelle Clay

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Cole has a major sweet tooth so it would have to be something really sweet. He’d probably love to put that powdery pixie stick stuff on Alex and lick it off!

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I picked up one of my mom’s old romance novels when I was ten or eleven … I remember that it was pretty tame and a little disappointing. LOL Erotica, hmmm probably when I was fourteen or so. My cousin brought one on vacation and we giggled like idiots at all the good parts.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Definitely paranormal. I’ve always loved the idea of a heroine overcoming supernatural obstacles and finding love on the way. Maybe it has something to do with my mom introducing me to romance novels and me and my brother’s shared love for all things horror. 🙂

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

I was going to say I don’t have a preference, but as I think about the heroes in my own novels I realize that I tend to lean toward longer hair. However, it’s usually that just rolled out of bed, need a trim, sexy as hell look. LOL

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I prefer to write at night, but these days, I’ll take any time I can get! My favorite place to work my magic is usually in my office. I can shut the door, crank up the music and be in my own little world.

6. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

Marked Souls was released this summer by Evernight Publishing. And I’m not too modest to admit that to date, it’s my favorite novel. I absolutely love the characters, especially the hero.

Blurb:

Not only can Alexandra Chandler summon demons, she can destroy them as well. Unfortunately, her unique gift has garnered the attention of Erielnael, one of the most powerful demons in the Netherworld. He recognizes the raw power Alex holds and wants to make her his familiar. This demon is unlike any other she’s ever gone up against. When she narrowly escapes him, he put a price on her head and his denizens will stop at nothing to please their master.

Unfortunately for Alex, demons aren’t the only ones after her. A small, secretive group of demon hunters has learned of her talents and wants the use of her extraordinary gifts as well. When she agrees to help them, her life is turned upside down. To make matters worse she has fallen for Cole Murrough, a key member of the group, who is moody and sometimes difficult to get along with. Cole has a dark secret of his own, but can she accept it? Alex finds herself dealing with demons, a forbidden love, dark secrets and a betrayal so shocking; it could destroy everything she’s worked toward.

Wicked Wednesday with Yazmin Subha

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Strawberries as they are the color of blood!

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

It was in my early teens. My older sister and I used to go to the library together. I had just graduated into the adult section so I chose a handful of books. When I started a particular book, the title of which I cannot recall, it had two models who were posing for a photographer and had sex in lots of places. My sister flicked through it and then decided it was not suitable! I think that started my interest in romance and erotica.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Paranormal. I love the suspense, human and supernatural world existing together and the combinations of heroes and hidden abilities.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

Recently, my mind is going to bald. I saw some pictures on the internet whilst randomly searching for something. Then I bumped into my son’s ex-basketball coach who is bald, and hey presto! So I think my next hero will be bald!

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

(Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

I write best in the morning on days I do not go out to work. I love to make a cup of Earl Gray tea and get back into bed to write.

6. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

My latest release happens to be my very first novella called ‘Wildfire’. I am so excited about it as I am sure everyone is about any release!  Wildfire is the story of Millie St Clair who has an encounter with a stranger. The next morning it all appears to be a dream until he turns up and whilst feeling threatened she discovers a hidden ability. Millie runs to her grandma’s home where she learns about her heritage and the reason why the stranger, Braden wants her.

I will stop there and let the readers discover the rest.

Here is the blurb:

Braden has searched all his life for the one who will help him regain his humanity and give him absolute power. One bite and he knew Millie was the one he had been searching for. Millie, a fiery red head is the last one in the line of high born witches who would rather die than give herself to this vampire. After all he killed her mother for her blood as well, didn’t he?  But in a twist of fate Millie learns too late what the truth is. But will death be the only thing that unites them?

Well I hope your readers like the sound of that.

Wicked Wednesday with May Water

      

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

Food play is quite popular with my heroines. Frosting, zucchini, jumbo peppermint sticks and licorice are amongst the yummies involved so far.

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

I am STILL trying to locate a book that I stole (and then lost) from one of my older sisters when I was about twelve. The picture on the torn cover was of a young lady hitchhiking in short shorts. The title had the word Piccadilly or Piccalilli in it. I would re-read the hot scenes over and over.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Tie between FF and ménage (where females outnumber the men). Why? Because women letting loose sexually is damn hot! I also tend to enjoy American historical. The sex seems kinkier to me since everyone was so hush-hush about it.

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

To me it doesn’t matter. I don’t really notice men’s hair. I’m more of a muscular thigh and beefy bicep kinda girl.

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

During my first year as a writer I wrote at all hours. Life was a blur. Now that I’ve calmed down I find that I do best writing in 2-4 separate increments, depending on if I have a deadline or not, making my total daily writing time approximately 4-8 hours. I write or promote 7 days a week. My favorite places to write have the views and sounds of nature. I don’t do as well writing in a city with views of concrete and constant noise.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

I didn’t know so I had to re-read those excerpts. It looks like I just kind of slipped it in (pun intended).

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

I have a bunch of erotic short stories stashed away. I am lengthening them one by one. I was recently working on two tales simultaneously, a gay werewolf and a western. The werewolf piece has been submitted so now I can slip fully into the Old West with RAW HIDE AWAY/Book 2 of the LASSOED LOVERS series.
