Are you reading any interesting books at the moment? I’ve got about 150 books in my TBR. They all sound interesting and I’m hoping to finally get through them all. I keep telling myself that I won’t buy another until I can get this list down, but I just picked up Breeder by Cara Bristol the other day. I think maybe I’ll remove the “Once Click” option on Amazon and see if that helps to curtail my buying spree.
What contributes to making a writer successful? Readers! A writer cannot be successful without a reader base. Keep in touch with readers, engage them. Readers will let you know if your characters are on point or if you’ve missed the mark. While we can’t make everyone happy, a collective reader base will help to guide a series.
Do you have any advice for writers? Never give up on their dreams. Writing is often solitary. I would suggest making writer friends. Friends will help you bounce ideas around and they can also help serve as emotional outlets or comic reliefs. With friends you’ll find that what you are going through, they probably are or have before.
What do you do to unwind and relax? I like to read for pleasure and watch mindless television. Since I’ve become a writer it’s been harder and harder to read for pleasure. Instead of reading I begin editing the book which makes it seem like work. If I can get past the first few chapters of a book I’m happy. That means I’m so engrossed in the story that I’m forgetting about “work”. There’s a few authors that I know can get me wrapped up in the story, Dean Koontz, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Joey W. Hill are just a few.
Do you have any upcoming appearances that you would like to share with us? In May I’ll be in New Orleans for RT. This is my first time at RT and I’m excited about it. I’m even hosting a party with some other author friends. I’m looking forward to meeting with readers and signing books.
What made you want to be a writer? My mother writes so it was something that I grew up seeing and being around. I remember growing up and she’d always be at her desk on her typewriter. I didn’t know then that’s what I wanted to do, but as the stories in my head began to take shape and my characters became louder and louder I knew what I had to do. Eva from Dangerously Mine (Loving Dangerously #1) was the first character that I wanted to complete. She’s so strong that it was no way that I couldn’t have ignored her any longer.
Jess hates aliens. After the invasion that destroyed Earth, the extraterrestrial bastards sold her to a brothel as a sex slave. She may have escaped but the old memories and fears still linger in the dark corners of her mind. Supposedly Sonis is just the place for her—somewhere safe, where she can heal and start fresh. She’s almost hopeful…until she meets Rasha, her new boss.
Rasha, captain of the Sonis Royal Guard, is a warrior through and through. He’s huge, sinfully sexy and could have any woman on Sonis—but the woman he wants is Jess. He’s very much an alien and Jess knows she should hate him or at least be wary, but whenever he’s around, she loses control. She tells herself it’s only sex—amazing, mind-blowing sex like nothing else she’s ever experienced—but there’s something about Rasha that shakes her soul. The feel of his skin against hers, the look in his eyes as he touches her—they make her want to believe it’s possible to find love and begin again.
