Check out Alison Bliss’s Answers to My 5 Burning Questions & more

I firsizemattersst read Alison’s book Rules of Protection (Tangled in Texas Book 1) back in September of 2014 and loved it. When I read several great reviews for her new book Size Matters I thought I’d ask her to answer my five burning questions. Enter Alison’s giveaway to win a copy of her new book here!

Enjoy her fun answers to the hot five questions!

 1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Sam?
Oh, man. I hate killing any of them. Okay, if I have to, then I guess I would kill Gideon Cross, screw Sam, and marry Kellan Kyle. I would’ve married Sam, since he’s pretty nice to look at (see pic). But after what he did to my heroine’s parents, I’m not too sure taking him home to meet the family would be such a good idea.

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read? Can you tell me aboutMuscled male model in studioit? NOTE: I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.
That was so long ago that I really have no clue which book I read first, though I’m certain it was a novel by V.C. Andrews since I had a huge fascination with those books in my teen years. A lot of those stories centered around family secrets but there was a great deal of romance in them as well.

3. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?
Ha! It totally should! I can promise you that I’ll never write a book that has no sex in it. Those are usually my favorite scenes to write. LOL Although I haven’t actually dabbled in the erotica genre at all yet, I could see trying my hand at one of those. But mostly, I have a couple of books I’d like to write that cross the romance sub-genre into paranormal and Sci-Fi.

alisonbliss4. As you write series, what’s your process for keeping track of characters and storylines?
Interestingly enough, I don’t have a process. I always claim to have the worst memory ever, but when it comes to my characters, I tend to remember everything about them and their stories. Even down to each individual’s eye color. That may change as I get more and more books out, though.

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be? Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals, or anyone. Name five people.
Tough question! I’m tempted to name five really hot celebrities and call it date night (LOL), but I won’t since there are some other people I’d love to invite. I never got the chance to meet either of my grandfathers before they died so they would be my first two choices. My third guest would be Linda Howard, who is my absolute favorite author. Then I would invite Albert Einstein just because I think it would interesting to pick his brain for an evening. And my fifth dinner invite would go out to Christian Grey. So yeah, I’m pretty sure this would be the most awkward evening ever…but it would make for some interesting dinner conversation.

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?
You mean to tell me we were using a point system in this interview, and I didn’t even know it? Fuck. (I guess that answers that question.)

Author Jay McLean Answers My Five Burning Questions & more

Lucas KDPYou know those writers that when they announce a new book you get excited all tingly about it. You 1-click it, you double check the release dates waiting for it to show up on your Kindle. When it finally does show up, you make sure you’ve the dogs been walked, the kids are fed and your husband is binge watching his favorite show. You get your Kindle and fire it up to take you away. Come on you know those authors? Well Jay is one of those authors for me! Her book Kick Push about a single father gave me a grade one Colleen Hoover Book Hangover and that was it. Fan for life!

Jay’s got a new brother series out now and I LOVE brother series.   They are my second favorite only to rocker stories for me. Check out the first in her new series Lucas, its free in Kindle Unlimited now. Thanks to Jay for sitting down and taking the time to answer my five burning questions. You’ll enjoy her answers as much as her books. Check her books out here and her social media.

Lucas M1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Lucas?
Oh… jeez. I’d kill Gideon Cross, screw Kellan, and Mary Lucas. LOL. Is that bad? I kinda like Luke (I couldn’t write a hero I didn’t like.)

<<–Lucas Medeiros is my Lucas muse. 

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read? Can you tell me about it? EDITOR’S NOTE:  I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.
My first romance novel is the same as millions of others, believe it or not. It was the Fifty Shades Trilogy. It’s what got me into reading. Then I read the Thoughtless Series, and that’s what got me into Book boyfriends. And then Slammed, and slammed is what got me to fall in love with words. I started reading about six months before I pKick Pushublished my first book. I wasn’t one of those girls you’d catch sneaking in reads when it was bed time. I was definitely late to find my passion in life. I feel sorry for myself that I missed out on so much. I’m currently going through a classic literature phase. I’m collecting old Shakespeare!

3. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?
LOL! I write erotica/BDSM/menage when I feel the urge, but I would never release it, at least not under my name. I’d have to come up with a different pen name so my YA readers don’t freak the hell out. Also, I’ve tried to write a little sexier with my NA titles, a little more alpha, a little naughtier, but those guys (seriously) are just too damn sweet and they end up declaring their love pre-penetration and it ends up vanilla and downhill from there. 

Morethanhis4. As you write series, what’s your process for keeping track of characters and storylines?
I have zero standard process. I don’t even know how I end up with a complete book sometimes. Like, if you asked me how I wrote Lucas, I wouldn’t even be able to tell you. When I’m writing, I kind of just zone out. It seems to work so far. The only downside I’ve noticed is that I recycle names. A lot. And it’s horrible. I’ve used the same names so many times in so many different books. Sigh. 

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be? Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone. Name five people.
I would seriously invite my readers. No lie. The majority of my reader base is in the US, and being from Australia, it’s kind of tough just to hang out with them and get nerdy over my books. My best friend would be next to me (she lives in NJ) and my twoLucas teaser 5 best mayhem partners (they know who they are) would be on the other side. I may invite Scott Eastwood and Ryan Sheckler, just for funzies. 

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?
My favorite swear word would be fuck. And maybe the C word (Sorry YA Readers). I’m Australian, though, the C word can sometimes be used in the form of a greeting.

A.L. Jackson Answers My Five Burning Questions & more

aljackson3
Author A.L. Jackson came to my attention with the book Come to Me Quietly series and I have been a convert ever since. When her new rock star series came out, A Stone in the Sea, I knew I was in for a treat. This series is one of my all time favorites and it’s not your typical rock romance. There’s no life on the road this is about a tormented rock star trying to escape from his life and finding refuge in a small town. The rest of the books are all about his band mates and family who you will fall in love with during this series. A must read, be warned you will get an HEA but you’ll need a supply of tissues, wine and chocolate for your journey.

I can’t thank A.L. enough for taking time out of her busy writing schedule to answer my five burning questions.  Enjoy!

Here’s the questions:

1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Brian?   Kill Brain, Marry Kellan, screw Gideon. 

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read? Can you tell me about it? EDITORS NOTE: I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.

AL JacksonGone with the Wind. I was 8 and was in love. I never stopped reading romances after that! 

AL Jackson 23. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?

I’ve been itching to write a full-blown paranormal romance. I’ve had a plot I’m in love with for YEARS, but I haven’t taken the dive to actually do it. One of these days….

4. As you write series, what’s your process for keeping track of characters and storylines?

I have a journal I keep with a vague plot, plus notes I jot all throughout. I definitely do a lot of searching through the document to remember different events, names, etc though! 

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be? Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone. Name five people.Craig Owens

Oh this is hard! Okay… 

1 ) Nora Roberts because I would love to pick her brain about being such a prolific writer. I’m always amazed at her ability to have written so many books while keeping it fresh and interesting.  

2) Craig Owens who is my real life fan girl crush. Y’all know I like my boys on a stage, tattooed and screaming!

3) Lyrik West (my own personal fantasy book boyfriend.) I’d write him a million times over if I could

4) Ernest Hemingway 

5) Why can’t I think of one more person? I’m thinking this will be an “intimate” gathering LOL

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?
F*ck, of course

Author M. Leighton Answers My Five Burning Questions & more….

We all are suckers for our heroines or heroes who have to over come something life changing to be together. This is one of those magical, sweet and steamy romances that you will devour in one sitting. No matter how bad you have to go pee, you’ll take your kindle with you. Don’t deny it we all all do it.

Levi is a blue-eyed businessman visiting Louisiana when he meets a blind artist, Evie at her art show. There’s baggage in each of their history and you think you understand their struggles but there’s more to it than meets the eye.

Trust me after you’ve read Levi’s Blue you’ll want to check out her other books.

Thank you to M. for taking the time to answer my five burning questions.  Here answer will make you laugh and tear up a little bit just like her books.  This one really rocks!

Levisblue

Here’s the questions.

1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Levi?  

OMG! Could this question be ANY harder??  Okay, I wouldn’t kill any of them. I know that for sure. I think I’d marry Levi or Kellan and screw Gideon. And hope Levi and Kellan didn’t know about each other. Or Gideon.  And that I don’t get arrested:D  LMAO 

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read?  Can you tell me about it?  EDITOR: I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.

Honestly, I don’t remember the exact first one, or what age I was, but I can tell you the first one that stuck with me.  I “borrowed” it from my mother, and it was called The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss.  It’s historical, so that tells you a lot about it right there.  The heroine was pure and proper, but feisty and strong, too.  The hero was broken and made me swoon, and I may have compared boys to him for a very long time. Holy smokes, I think I was in love with Wulfgar for the better part of my teens and twenties:) LOL  That book has everything a good romance should include, right down to the bodice-ripping.  

Mleighton23. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?

I guess I’d have to say menage since I’ve touched on the others. I also have a burning desire to write an intricate mystery thriller.  Like REALLY intricate.  Brilliant.  And maybe one day I will.  *crosses fingers*  As for the warnings on sexless romance, for me, I don’t need a warning.  I’m old enough to remember when MOST romances were sexless.  I think romance is all about the heart and the heat, not necessarily the kink:) 

mleighton4. You’ve written series before how do you trackeveryone’s back story?

I keep notes.  Not very organized ones, but I DO keep track of important character details.  God forbid I ever have to go back a long way, though.  I feel sure they’re not detailed enough to pick up and run with after a certain amount of time has passed. hehe  I’d probably have to re-read the books.  Or ask my readers. I’ve noticed that many of them have an amazing retention of those types of details.  It’s incredible and incredibly humbling:)

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be?  Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone.  Name five people. 

You didn’t say dead or alive, so I’m assuming they must be alive and not decaying around the dinner table:)  LOL

damonCash and Olivia Davenport.  They’re special characters to me anyway, but I’d love to meet them in person. Together.  I think their love, their relationship would be quite something to behold in real life.

Ian Somerhalder, but only if I weren’t married. And he wasn’t too inclined to press charges, because there would be some serious groping going on.  hehe

Ben Affleck, but only so I could kick him in the balls.

Miley Cyrus, but only so I could kick her in the balls, too.  *snort*

If my list can include dead people, that changes everything!  Just for kicks and giggles, here’s my list for that:

Jesus.  Because…Jesus.

Edgar Allen Poe. Because…brilliant.

JFK.  Because…I HAVE TO KNOW WHO DID IT!

Elvis. Because…He’s Elvis.  Those eyes, that face, those hips, that voice!  But if he couldn’t make it, I’d ask for Frank Sinatra:)

But I’d trade almost every single one of them for one more dinner with my dad.

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?

Turd.  I don’t swear in real life:)

Mister Ball Peen Hammer Answers My Five Burning Questions and more


ballpeenhammer
Ball Peen Hammer by Lauren Rowe was one of my favorite books this summer and definitely my favorite funny romance in a good while. If you love Rachel Van Dyken or Helena Hunting books this will float your boat!! Keane has a great voice and I fell in love with him in this book, so I thought I’d see how he’d answer my five burning questions. Check out his responses they are funny, sweet and only Keane.

Here’s the description for Ball Peen Hammer if you haven’t read it yet.
“Keane Morgan wouldn’t return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn’t want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin’ choice in the matter–at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax’s coveted parking spot at UCLA.

Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just soorchestrated. And, honestly, what kind of guy uses the phrase “baby doll” with a straight face? Oh, that’s right: the kind of guy who’s a male stripper.

Yup, the cocky jerk turned out to be Seattle’s answer to Magic Mike, a stripper known as “Ball Peen Hammer”–which meant Keane Morgan was emphatically not the kind of guy I’d ever fall for.

Not. At. All. No freakin’ way. Well, until Keane convinced me to fall for him, that is.  Which I did. Hard.
NOTE:
Ball Peen Hammer is a full-length, standalone sexy romantic comedy about Keane Morgan (one of four Morgan brothers introduced in The Club Series) and Maddy Milliken (the little sister of Hannah Banana Montana Milliken).

1.    Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? 

Matt_NSelecting a person to kill, even hypothetically, is really bad karma, baby doll. I certainly don’t want someone plotting to kill me, so I’d better pass on that. Marriage? Pass. I’m too young to be making lifelong promises to anyone about anything. I can barely keep a promise to call my momma tomorrow. Screw? The only person I have any desire to screw these days is the one and only Maddy Behind the Camera, Madelyn Elizabeth Milliken. Yee-boy! Sexy girl.

2.   What would you do if could do anything in the world?

That’s easy. Pitch a no-hitter in the World Series.

3.
 
What do you love most about your girl?

Man, my girl Maddy’s a smart-girl. A helluva lot smarter than me, that’s for sure. And she’s funny as hell, too. (True story: Maddy made me laugh yesterday, right as I was I taking a sip of orange juice and it totally shot outta my nose, brah. Hilare.) And she’s talented, too. And so fucking sweet, sugar won’t even melt in her mouth. Most of all, though, I think I love the way she makes me feel about myself. She makes me feel like I can do anything–like I’m some kind of superhero. She makes me want to deserve the way she looks at me.


4.
  What animal are you most afraid of?

Okay, bear with me here, brah. What’s that little animal that hides in bushes and then sneaks out and kills you? It’s a stealthy little fucker, but I can’t remember what it’s called. But, anyway, that’s the animal I’m most afraid of. Bee tee dubs, when I asked my best friend Zander what that animal is called, he was like, “A snake?” And I’m like, “No, dude. Not a snake. This stealthy fucker-thing is a mammal.” And Zander was like, “A stealthy mammal that hides in bushes and then sneaks out and kills you? You mean, a lion?” And I was like, “No, fuck! No, not a lion. It’s small.” And Zander replied, “And it sneaks out of bushes and kills you? There’s no such animal, Peenie Weenie. You’re high.” Well, fuck that! I’m positive that deadly little mammal exists, I just can’t remember what it’s called. So, yeah, whatever that thing is, my answer to your question is that. (And to answer the question that’s surely rolling around in your head right now: No, Zander and I were not drunk or stoned or otherwise chemically impaired during the conversation detailed above.)

Matt_n15.  Finally who is really your moms favorite?

There is no “really” needed in this wording of this question, son. If any of my three brothers or sister think it’s one of them, then I’d posit the following query: “Who gets extras every time Mom makes lasagna? And who makes Momatron laugh ‘til she literally pees? And who used to write Motherboard little poems when he was a little dude? That’s right, son, the one and only Keane Elijah Morgan. There’s no doubt Momma Lou loves me the most of all her five kids, and if my siblings disagree they can SUCK IT! *drops the mic* (Ain’t no shame in my game. I’m a momma’s boy through and through.)

6.For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?

Oh, man, that’s like asking me to pick a favorite child. I love all my children equally. But, okay, if pressed, then I’d say I’m an ardent fan of the word “fucker.”

Debut Author J.A. Little Answers My Five Burning Questions

JA Little Author

It’s been a long summer of moving house, writing and traveling, now is the time to bring back 5 burning questions.  Check out debut J.A. Little’s novel – Angel of Redemption.

I discovered this story from a 5 STAR review on the Schmexy Girl Blog and I wanted to spread the word about this book.  Dean Wyatt sparks all the things I love in romance, check out this description and the review and I think you’ll 1-click this book too.

Check out the description: Seasoned social worker Kayla Brooks has dealt with her fair share of difficult situations, but nothing could have prepared her for the likes of Dean Wyatt, head of Wyatt House Group Home for Boys. When a case unexpectedly brings Kayla to his door in the middle of the night, sparks fly. With a piercing gaze and heavily inked skin, Dean looks like a walking wet dream.

Until he turns out to be an asshole.

Dean Wyatt has always kept those around him at arm’s length. Secrets lurk beneath his tattoos—a traumatic past known to very few.

Forced to work together in order to help two vulnerable boys, Kayla slowly penetrates Dean’s tough exterior. Along the way the two discover something they’ve each been missing—but only time will tell if they can overcome the painful past that’s kept anyone from bringing true happiness into Dean’s world.

Check out J.A.’s answers to my five burning questions.

1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Dean?  

*Ha! It’s so weird to even have that question asked b/c Gideon Cross and Kellan Kyle are so well known. I don’t like the idea of killing anyone. Screw . . . probably all 3 at some point, depending on mood. lol. Marry would definitely have to be Dean. I have an deeply emotional attachment to him already so it would be an easy step to take.

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read? Can you tell me about it?  EDITORS NOTE:  I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.

* I honestly don’t remember my first romance. I do remember when I was about 14 getting ahold of one that was a period novel. Set in the 1800s maybe. I just remember them talking about his “pink member” and thinking “I’m not sure I’m supposed to be reading this.” Of course I did anyway.

charlieh3. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?

* Well, I have to start out by saying that I kind of “fell” into writing romance/adult novels. When I was younger, I wanted to be the female version of Stephen King. I wrote twisted poetry and horror. So romance really is fairly new for me. I think though, in the romance category, I really like to keep things real. Sex is a part of adult relationships so I’m not sure that I would ever write a sexless adult romance, but I’d probably tone it down quite a bit if I ended up writing other genres. I’m not sure that Menage or BDSM is really my style either, but I suppose I’ll never say never.

4. What’s your favorite thing to do when you aren’t writing or reading?

*I have four kids, so I am constantly running around taking people here and there and everywhere else. On the rare occasion I get time to myself though, I am a runner. I love just getting out and going whether it’s 3 miles or 10 miles. It clears my head and gets the adrenaline pumping. In the winters I also like to snowboard. And I really just enjoy having coffee or drinks with friends.

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be?  Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or aJKRowlingnyone.  Name five people.

*This is a hard one. It’s taken me over a week to figure this out, but this is what I’ve come up with.

1) Sia because she writes such raw and emotional music. I have been inspired by her more times than I can count and I am just awed at the way she puts it all out there.

2) JK Rowling because . . . because she’s JK Rowling. lol. It takes a lot of strength and determination to pick yourself up by your bootstraps the way that she did. She changed and inspired an entire generation. Her imagination and her ability to take people into a whole other world is astounding.

3) Charlie Hunnam – Does this one really need explanation? He could inspire me to write all sorts of stories.

4) H.G. Wells. – It seems to me like he knew far more about science fiction and the future than he should have at the time that he was writing novels. I’m curious as to how he came up with his ideas.

5) My Nana, because I miss her and love her and I wish she could see the compassionate and determined young man and the strong, independent daughters I am raising. She would proud of them.

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?

*Shit is the word I use the most. But I always laugh when someone uses the word douchenozzle or something similarly ridiculous.

Author A. WILDING WELLS Answers my Five Burning Questions & more

wildthingsI discovered A. Wilding Wells books in a random search on Amazon and I was hooked when I saw the abdominal muscles and a tartan kilt on the cover of How To Tame Beasts And Other Wild Things. Who isn’t a sucker for those? Right? I 1-Clicked it and the rest was a recipe for yummy Alpha goodness. The widowed Scottish farmer Balthazar “the Beast” Cox reluctantly falls for the world traveling Matilda Pearl when she comes home to help him take care of his family. I loved their story and WW’s story telling style so when her new book came out A Field Guide To Catching Crickets  I 1-clicked again. Right now both books are available on Kindle Unlimited for Free or only 99 cents.

I am grateful that she’s taken five minutes out of her busy day from her writing, taking care of her boys or her adorable farm animals to answer my five burning questions.  Follow her on instagram and you’ll know what I am talking about.

fieldguide

  1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Balthazar?
    Marry Balthazar no question, with lots of screwing. Kellan Kyle, screw, and screw and screw. Gideon Cross, screw the living daylights out of.
  1. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read? Can you tell me about it? EDITOR NOTE:  I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.
    Mine was Forever by Judy Blume. I was 10 years old. I read it over and over.. loved it. But I was so confused by all the coming. I had no idea what she was talking about, coming? They were always coming, but where were they going since they were screwing. It makes me laugh so hard still.

3. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?
I’m pretty sure I couldn’t do a sexless romance. I’ve toyed with it, but then I get so into the characters driving my scenes and dam, they end up fucking! I don’t see a BDSM in my future. But then again you never know. I’m not quite sure what my books are going to be until I jump in. A lot of my stories serendipitous in how they come together. I keep piles of 3 x 5 cards with ideas, and i mean piles.

4. What’s your favorite thing to do when you aren’t writing or reading?What do you mean? Is there anything else? 🙂  We have 4 boys and love doing stuff with them, even if it’s simply dinner at the table for lively conversation. I’m really into animals, so I love spending time in the pastures, hanging out. We entertain a lot as well, my husband is an amazing cook and cocktaileur, so that’s a lot of what we do on weekends.

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be?  Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone.  Name five people.
My deceased french grandmother. Gertrude Stein. Oprah. Albert Einstein. Steven Spielberg.

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?
Fuck. There is no better swear word.

Terri Anne took timForever Rockerse out of writing the next Lucy & Harris novels to answer my five burning questions and they don’t disappoint.

1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Shane?

Kill…no way

Screw…fucking all three!

Marry…Shane. The way Shabe treats Harper, who wouldn’t want that everyday for the rest of their lives?

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read? Can you tell me about it?  EDITORS NOTE: I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.

rockers 3OMG! I was 12 and I was struggling to read. I have dyslexia so even at the age of 12 I couldn’t read very well. My aunt gave me one of her little Harliquin novellas and from then on I was hooked. I can’t remember the title or who wrote it, but I can remember every moment of that book because for the first time in my life I WANTED to read. I read 200 books that summer and by the new school year I was making honor roll.

3.  What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?

I’m going to try my hand at M/M and F/F in an upcoming novella collection feature some of everyone’s favorite secondary characters. Mieke, Kenzie, Linc and Jenna will be featured in their own novellas in the collection.

4. Writing a series of 12 volumes how do you keep track of everyone’s story?

Lots and lots of notes! Lol. It also helps that I go back and re-read the last book before I start on the newest ones. But these characters have such strong and differing personalities that it isn’t nearly as hard as some think.

5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be?  Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone.  Name five people.

Top of the list? Sylvia Day, hands down. I think I rockers2would be a nervous wreck and fan girl for about five minutes but once I’ve calmed down I would pick her brain.  Lol

2) The Winchester brothers. I’m half in love with Dean and it wouldn’t be the same if we left Sam out. 😉

3)  Alexander Skarsgård because, hey, Tarzan and Eric Northman. Need I say more?

4) All the loved ones I’ve lost over the years, especially my dad. That would be one hell of a family reunion.

5) Lastly, my seventeen year old self. So I can tell her that life was going to be hard in the coming years, and sometimes she will want to give up, but it gets a hell of a lot better.

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?

Just one??? Fuck! Is the word I use at least 25 times a day.

If you want to know more, she’s got an amazing collection of books available now on her Amazon page.

Check out Lauren’s answers to my five burning questions and her latest book Mister Big O! YOU won’t regret it.

Here’s the questions:

1.  Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Mister Big O?
(
Oh great question, but can we do Marry, Screw, Cuddle? I’m all about the non-violence 🙂 How about Mister O to marry, Gideon to screw, and Kellan to cuddle, even though I honestly think Mister O would satisfy on all three!!!

2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read?
Can you tell me about it?  EDITORS NOTE: I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.

bigrockI LOVED Jackie Collins too! I devoured Jackie Collins, Sydney Sheldon
and Danielle Steele growing up! Gone With the Wind was probably my
first romance novel and I read it countless times.

3. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?

Ha, yes, total warning!! THIS BOOK INCLUDES CLOSED DOORS! I don’t know
that I’d write menage or BDSM, but I might consider writing an MM
romance at some point

4. What’s your favorite thing to do when you aren’t writing or reading?

Hang out with my family! And cuddle with my dogs! And eat cake!

nightseries5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be?  Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone.  Name five people.

Harry Potter would be awesome! Henry and Clare from Time Traveler’s
Wife – would love to talk about their romance. Leonardo DiCaprio as
he’s my favorite actor. And Amy Schumer because she cracks me up.

6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?

Fuck. Of course. 🙂
