About the Book:
Madame Eve’s 1NightStand service has brought together Blake and Taryn on a cold Christmas Eve at the Castillo Lodge. The two will set out on an adventure of pain and pleasure surrounded by Alaskan snow-capped mountains and nestled in a warm country lodge. But as the night develops, Taryn discovers it’s not Christmas presents that will surprise her but instead the very man who mastered her through a night of intense BDSM.
WARNING — This book has intense BDSM that some might find objectionable. If you don’t enjoy some serious spanking, rough play, and the use of floggers, among other toys, this story is not for you.
1. Describe what it’s like to be an author in three words.
Thrilling. Challenging. Time consuming.
2. What is your favorite genre of literature?
Urban Fantasy Romance. I love to read it and it’s my favorite genre to write.
3. At what point in your life did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
After I wrote my first book and realized I could do it. Seems simple, but that’s the truth!
4. What would you consider to be the best book you have ever read?
Anything from Keri Arthur. I’m a HUGE fan of hers. If you love urban fantasy with a big dose of heat to your stories then her work is for you.
5. What are your current projects?
Right now, I’m in revisions on the Magic & Mayhem series that is coming out with Entangled Publishing starting in April 2012.
I’ve also just wrapped up the next Frostbite novel that is published with Ellora’s Cave and I hope to have that off my editor soon.
Besides those, I’m working on a new urban fantasy series called Witches Brew. I hope to have the first book, The Cat’s Meow finished by the end of January and have it out in February sometime.
Busy, but fun busy!
6. Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.
Readers. I cannot say enough how grateful I am for the readers who have supported me from day one. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.
7. Do you see writing as a career?
I never did think of it that way, at first. It was always something that I just loved to do. But as time went on I realized that I needed to. If it’s just a hobby then I worked and worked…and worked some more.
So I’ve changed how I think about it and work hours like anyone would at a normal job and I take weekends off to make sure that I get some down time. If not my muse would never leave me alone.
8. If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Nope! And I’m extremely lucky that way. I have had the opportunity to take the first books I ever wrote, which was The Magical Sword series and rewrite them. It’s a pretty neat thing to see how much you’ve grown as a writer when you work on older works, and it’s very cool to have the ability to take stories that you love and make them ever better.
9. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I always learn from every book. I think if I didn’t I wouldn’t be able to grow as an author. It’s all part of the process. I learn how to make my writing stronger, a thing or two about grammar, and a way to create a better plot. The key is to always keep trying and keep learning!
10. Do you have any advice for other writers?
Write…and then keep on writing. The more you do, the better you get. And also to realize that you don’t have to be perfect. It’s okay to make mistakes and that’s why you have editors. Learn from them. Soak up their knowledge. And then write another book!
11. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
As always, a big thank you. Whenever I read a review where someone loved my story it gives me the warm fuzzies! I cannot say enough how much I appreciate the support and how it makes me want to work harder and write “great” books!
