Interview with Renee Stevens
Author Interview / September 2, 2016

After first making me a part of the blogtour for the latest novel Wide Open Spaces, Renee Stevens was also kind enough to answer some questions I really wanted to ask her. Thank you so much Renee, I really appreciate it. How did you come up with the idea for this novel? Wide Open Spaces honestly just kind of came to me when a friend was telling me that I should claim the state of Wyoming for the States of Love novella series. She was encouraging me, and I wasn’t going to do it, but then I got this idea of a guy who moved away and then came back and what it could be like for him. It smacked me upside the head until I sat down and started writing. In what way are the States of Love novels connected?  I think the only way that they are really connected is that each book has to have elements of its state. For example, I chose Wyoming, so my story has things like Flaming Gorge Reservoir, wild horses, there’s mention of Yellowstone National Park, and other similar things that are fairly unique to Wyoming. How many parts will there be…

Ten Most Delicious Desserts Inspired by Novels
Author Interview / April 18, 2016

The wonderful Andrea Lochen is stopping by the blog again, this time to share the Ten Most delicious desserts inspired by novels. What a great idea that is. We met Andrea before when she stopped by to tell us about her novel Imaginary Things, but this is a great post as well. So thank you Andrea for this, I am sure we will enjoy this so much. Ten Most Delicious Desserts Inspired by Novels by Andrea Lochen As an avid reader with a major sweet tooth, I love when authors include the recipes for the yummy desserts they’ve made me drool over throughout their book. It’s a marriage of two of my favorite activities—reading and baking! And if you’re a book club member, what better treat to bring to your meeting than a dessert straight out of the novel? Here are ten of my favorite book-inspired desserts! 1) Southern Caramel Cake from The Help by Kathryn Stockett Who hasn’t wanted to try a bite of the scrumptious-sounding caramel cake that Minny makes in The Help? (Maybe not so much her chocolate pie, however!) Though Stockett didn’t include the recipe in the back of her book, this food blog has the The…

Jay Northcote answers questions
Author Interview / April 12, 2016

Now as you all know I absolutely love Jay Northcote. So when I read that she was doing a new cover for her book The Little Things, I had to get to the bottom of it of course. I already reviewed the book some time ago, but I knew I had to give the new cover some attention. I think the new cover looks absolutely stunning and I want to make people see the new cover. So I asked Jay about the new cover for The Little Things and she was kind enough to answer my questions. You can see the old cover for the book on the left of this post, the new cover is further down. I like them both, but I understand the reasons for changing it. But I will let the lady tell her own story. What made you decide a new cover for this book was in order? The Little Things has always been a bit neglected compared to my other titles. It has never sold as well or grabbed readers’ attention. I think the original choice of cover was part of the reason for that. And giving The Little Things a new cover was…

Stay With Me
Author Interview , Blogtour , Bookteaser / March 8, 2016

Stay With Me is re release of the story, but it still remains every bit as sweet as it was before. Adele Lamb has kindly allowed me to write a post about the book and add her own words to it as well. I love this story very very much, so I urge you all to consider buying it as well. There is no chance of disappointment here. So I welcome Lily Adile to the blog and allow her to say her thing below I am a Turkish mother and a wife who works as a nurse during the day and writes LGBTQ stories late at night, once the family have gone to bed. I studied in the UK and worked there for a few years before I moved to Australia where I finally settled down. I support Marriage Equality and stand by same sex parents because I believe all a child needs is a loving and protective home. For me, an individual’s gender identity and expression are influenced by many factors including but not limited to, culture, religion, social restrictions, customs and beliefs…this makes one’s gender very diverse and fluid so my main focus in my stories are people who…

Author Interview Mia Kerick
Author Interview , Blogtour , Bookteaser / December 7, 2015

Today I’m very lucky to have an author interview with Mia Kerick, author of Clean Hi Mia, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book. Hello, and thank you very much for welcoming me to your blog today to promote the release of my new YA LGBTQ Edgy Contemporary Romance, Clean. Favorite thing about building your own world? I write contemporary fiction, so I do not create fantasy worlds, but I do enjoy a certain sense of freedom when I create my own “typical New England town” because it can have any restaurants I choose, any landscape that fills my needs, be of any income level I want—there are few restrictions. What inspired you to write your first book? My sister was hugely inspiring in writing my first book, as she has always been my role model. And about five years ago, she wrote a book, so I followed suit. She however, is still perfecting her very first book, and I have written 15 books. Do you have a specific writing style? I write from the heart… what feels and sounds right. I use a combination of very long sentences separated…

Guest Blog – Justin Edison
Author Interview , Bookteaser / November 30, 2015

As I promised when I wrote the review for his book The Churning, Justin Edison has agreed to write a guest blog for me. In it, he tells a little more about the book and where the idea for the story came from. Take it away, Justin. “The Churning” is the story of what happens when a professional athlete—a soccer star—is kidnapped and forced to endure trials of retribution. Ensnared by a sexy temptress, drugged and dragged off, Arman Hessabi wakes to find himself blindfolded and chained to a chair, somewhere in Europe. Then, as we meet his four captors, his troubles really begin. The idea for the sports-kidnapping story came from a brainstorm. In my first book, “Watching the World Fall,” the hero was an antihero—the one doing the kidnapping, albeit for understandable (however criminal) reasons. With “The Churning” I thought it would be fun to turn the tables on a real egomaniac. Hessabi is a talented prince among men who has the wealth, fame and women a Premier League career offers. But he’s also lost sight of what it means to be human and to be valued for something other than his playing abilities. Here, he’s stripped down…
