Categories: Character Spotlight, erotic, Interview, Tags: , , , , , , , ,

SugarDust-200x300Dan loves submissive women and longs to build a harem of willing females to fill what he lovingly calls his ‘Slave Library.’ He shares his plans for sexual bliss with Karen, the first of his submissives in both his mind and his heart. But when an unexpected visit from his mother leads to uncomfortable questions about his ex, Dan realizes that past mistakes are catching up to him, faster than he can run.

The first D/s relationship to blend comfortably with her vanilla life is the one Karen shares with Dan. She treasures the freedom in the act of submission and wants nothing more than to share it with her Master for as long as possible. Why then, does he insist on bringing other women into their beds? And why can’t he say he loves her?

As Dan battles his inner demons, Karen hopes a sexy mini break at the exclusive fetish club, Sugar Dust will allow them time to relax and reconnect. There she meets Beth, personification of Dan’s past storming in to demolish her present. Can she show Dan that their relationship is strong enough to break the chains of his past, before Beth drives an immoveable wedge between them with her tales of what once was?

I’m sure you’ll all enjoy meeting Karen Owusu from Slippers & Chains: Sugar Dust by Raven ShadowHawk.  I personally cannot wait to sit down and see what makes her tick.

Hi Karen and thanks for joining us today.  Please tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

She fancies me. Seriously. Not that she’s my type particularly, but Raven seems to have a thing for intelligence and wit. I guess that says something good for me.

Though in a totally less narcissistic way, I think she also appreciated the relationship I have with Dan. It’s so…normal. If there’s anything Raven longs for is more normality in her life. *shrugs* No idea why.

I’m also a lot like her [Raven] and she is a bit of a narcissist. We both adore our partners, feel strongly about marriage (in that we ain’t bloody interested) and feel that while monogamy works perfectly well for some folk, it isn’t for everyone, nor should it be expected as such.

My relationship works with Dan because we’re open to needs outside our duo-dynamic and Raven likes that as an idea. So understanding that about me made her want to write about me.

Sounds like you and Raven have a complex relationship that’s really rewarding.  It certainly makes for a great writing dynamic.  So what was it that drew you to your mate?

Dan? First off; he’s not an idiot. And he didn’t have a dick-pic as his profile picture on “Kink4Life”. I can’t tell you how much of an annoyance that is. Guys out there…seriously; if you want to pick up a submissive chick from a fetish website, how about selecting a profile picture of…oh, I don’t know, your freakin’ face! No submissive wants to think the only part she’ll ever see of her Dom is his cock. *sigh*

I also like that he’s older if I’m honest. He’s secure, mature and safe. And he understands me. That stuck out a lot; he just got the fact that I needed to submit, not in every part of my life, but in some parts (and by “some parts” I mean in the bedroom).

It’s important to understand that women who want to explore submission don’t necessarily want to be submissive everywhere!  Here’s a great question, where was the wildest place you seduced your partner?

You’re kidding—you do know that we’re kinksters, right?

Okay… *taps lip* The disabled toilets in McDonald’s.

I did—and continue—to feel guilty about this because there was a woman outside wanting to change her baby, but Dan is such a randy bastard. He sent me to take my knickers off because…well, because that’s what we do. But he followed me in so he could watch me take them off. There’s stupid pop music playing and a kids party roaring through the joining wall, but I took them off real slow and did a weird dance to Bob The Builder. Apparently that was too much for him and he bent me over the sink and…you know. Gagged me with my knickers, too. That was a bit crazy.

You two are certainly kinky!! And seriously, McDonald’s??  *sigh*.  Hmm… boxers, briefs or Commando? 

For him or for me? On him? Let’s assume on him since I spend a lot of my time without bloody underwear. Um…boxers. I don’t like all that squished up nonsense. Let a guy’s nads breathe. Especially if you want them to work.

Interesting viewpoint and makes sense.  Now, if your partner wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick he can play?

There’s no trick I’m afraid.

Well, there’s this little hair flick he does and then he looks at me real steady and intense. Somehow like he’s looking up at me even though he’s taller. And there’s this voice he does. I don’t know how, but that voice…just thinking about it makes me cross my legs. All deep and sexy and commanding and—fuck. Give me a tissue. Please.

Seriously?  I’m guessing he uses that to his advantage!  In return, is there one place on your partner’s body that you know will drive him wild-in and out of bed?

Are you actually trying to make me mess up your sofa? Christ.

Okay…in bed, it’s all about his back. When I wore my hair long he liked to feel it against his back. Now he wants to feel my fingers there, feather-light touches. Out of bed there’s a spot on the inside of his wrist—I don’t even know if I should tell you this—but it’s super sensitive. Only the left wrist, weirdly enough, not the right one. I touch that with my tongue and it’s all over.

Just the left wrist huh?  That is totally weird! Here’s a great question… What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in Sugar Dust?

The cage. The fucking cage. I like bondage and humiliation as much as the next person—probably more—but this was a bit much. Not only trapping me in there but having Pete be the one to bust me out?

…bitch.

Hopefully she’ll stick it to Dan in the next story and leave me the hell alone. Then again you guys haven’t met my parents yet. *shakes head* Fuck.

A CAGE?? Oh boy, I think this is going to be an interesting read!!  Is there anything else you’d like to add before we go?

Actually, yes. Thanks for having me. It’s weird talking so openly about this sort of thing, especially since Dan is so paranoid about keeping his kink under wraps. I usually only get to be this candid with Cindy, so it’s nice to give my views a bit of an airing.

Now please, in the nicest possible way, get lost, so I can get myself off. You’ve got me horny as hell.

Yes Ma’am!  You guys are going to LOVE this book!!

Too Much of a Good Thing?

No comments yet

Categories: Author Tips, Fresh Blog, Writing, Tags: , , ,

typing-on-laptopHere’s a great question when it comes to promoting your work… how much is too much?

We want to reach people and make them aware of our latest release, but do we really want to be seen as shameless promo whores?  Yeah, I said it… I used “that” word.  You see, there’s a fine line between promoting your work and spamming newsfeeds with it.  So how do you tread that line without crossing it?  How do you ensure that you’re “out there” without reaching a point where people hate the sight of your cover?

If you do a bit of research you will see that there are several trains of thought when it comes to promoting yourself via social media.  You need to consider a few factors.  I could copy and paste endless articles or lists for you, but here are some tips that I’ve picked up by watching the accounts that manage to capture my interest without overtly “promoting” themselves to me.

  • Try to post promotional posts no more than 3 times per day and stagger these 3 – 5 hours apart.  If you are scheduling posts, you could do a 4th while you are sleeping to catch fans around the world.
  • If you have an author profile and a personal profile, do not post to both accounts at the same time.  Remember that you have friends on both and they don’t want to see the same thing twice in a row.  Stagger your promotional posts a few hours apart (as per above).
  • Remember that you are building an author brand, not selling only this book.  When people are invested in the person, they will be more inclined to part with their hard-earned cash to support you.
  • Promotion doesn’t have to be focused on the book.  Talk to your audience about elements of your next book.  Example – if your next book is about wolves or vampires or a historical romance, post interesting things you’ve discovered or talk about places that have inspired you.  As part of building you as a brand, share pictures of your gardening success, favourite recipes or tips for relaxing.  Engage with your readers in a way that doesn’t involve seeing them as buyers and you’ll build loyalty.

The best advice I can offer is to examine the authors you follow on Facebook / Twitter etc.  See which ones you really enjoy and why.  What do they do that attracts you or makes you feel valued.  I’m not suggesting you copy them, but you can draw inspiration from them and use it to invigorate your own promotion.

Oh… and have fun with it.  People respond to that too.

Hi everyone and thanks for joining us today.  I’m sure you’ll join me in giving a warm welcome to Lily from A Crystal Angel by Dawn Brower today as we sit down and see what makes her tick.

Hi Lily, why not tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

She didn’t want to let me leave England. After I explained my reasons she allowed me to go to where I truly belong. It’s good we could finally see eye to eye—I’d have disliked harming her.

I think she’d have disliked being harmed too!  For the sake of our dear author and your story, I’m glad she allowed you to leave England after all *grin*.  What was it that drew you to your mate?

He had a ship. I so desperately wanted to board it if you know what I mean.

*laughs out loud* Well, yes, I think I follow you!  Here’s a little naughty fun, where was the wildest place you seduced him?

I’d rather not say—a lady should have some secrets.

Well, I can’t say that I disagree, but after your implication about ships and boarding… I’m a little surprised.  Ok, let’s try this one, do you prefer boxers, briefs or commando?

I admit I don’t quite understand this question. Are you talking about undergarments? I dress in what a normal lady wears underneath her skirts—pantaloons.

Ok… I won’t press the issue, but instead I’ll ask you this. If your partner wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick he can play?

Kiss me, he does kiss ever so well.

I have to agree with you there that a good kiss can be extremely sexy!  Now, if that’s how he seduces you, what is the one place on his body that you know will drive him wild-in and out of bed?

Oh he’s quite ticklish. I found out completely by accident. I know you were expecting something more risqué, but I still find it amusing.

Whatever turns him on… and it’s not the strangest thing I’ve ever heard, but I think we’ll discuss that in private *grins*.  I love this question… what was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in A Treasured Lily?

One time, when I was younger, she suggested I run away from home. I’m sorry to stay that penchant stuck with me years later. It’s a habit I can’t seem to shake. I blame her entirely and it embarrasses me how much I like doing it.

So she only has herself to blame for your grand adventure?  That’s delicious!!  Before we go, is there anything else you’d like to add?

Yes, I want to talk to about my brother Liam. I think she needs to fix him up with a nice girl. He’s going to be lonely now that I’m not there to keep him company and make his life interesting.

*whispers in the background*

What? 

*more whispers*

Oh all right I suppose that will do. I find that idea lovely in fact.

Anything you’d care to share with the readers?

Sorry, Dawn was explaining to me her plans with Liam. I’m sworn to secrecy. You’ll just have to wait and see.

Personally I cannot wait!!  I hope you’ve ordered your copy.  I know you’ll love it!

Until next time…

evenvillainshaveinterns_200x300It’s Chicago vs. The Super Villains: America’s Second City will never know what hit it.

Bootleggers, drug dealers, crooked cops, and dirty politicians… Chicago has always had a reputation for indulging in the finer vices of life. That’s why Doctor Charm’s favorite daughter found America’s second city so appealing—criminals are never boring. As second in command for the powerful Subrosa Security group, Delilah Samson finds opportunities to use her superpowers at every turn. Whether it’s stealing a priceless French painting from a mobster or stopping a drug deal, she’s game.

In fact, the only thing she doesn’t care for is Chicago’s favorite native son, Deputy Mayor Alan Adale, the man who made Lucifer jealous. Sinfully handsome, or possibly just sinful, Adale has been pursuing Delilah since she first arrived, and she’s been dodging.

When she finds ties between the new kingpin in town and a drug The Company wants to buy so they can create more superheroes, Delilah takes the gloves off. Teaming up with the spooky Spirit of Chicago, she aims to take down the dealers, the mobsters, the kingpin, and The Company. All without falling in love with the one man capable of capturing her heart.

I have to admit that this next book in the series sounds awesome and I can’t wait for Friday, so I’m really excited to be chatting to Alan Adale from Even Villains Have Interns by Liana Brooks and I hope you’ll help me make him feel truly welcome!!  Let’s find out more about what makes him tick.

Hi Alan and thanks for joining us.  Would you start by telling us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

Hi Domino and thanks for having me today.  Let’s see… I fell in love with the wrong woman. She’s right for me, but she’s an armload of trouble.

That certainly sounds intriguing.  How wrong could she be if she’s right for you?  Oh, and honey, women are never trouble *grins wickedly*.  What was it that drew you to her?

Her smile. The first time I saw her smile I was captivated. She’s so sure of herself and intelligent. Every conversation was a battle.

Strong, confident and quick witted… I think I’m going to enjoy reading about her!  And those conversations sound like fun! Here’s a little naughty fun, where was the wildest place you seduced her?

In the book? Nowhere fun. I have plans for seducing her in a museum, or the Chicago Library. Slip in after dark for a private tour… *wink*

I like how you think!  Those are very seductive choices for sure…  So when you seduce her, will she be stripping you of boxers, briefs or finding herself … how shall I put this… barrier free?

That’s certainly an original way of fishing for information.  I’m a boxers guy.

Hmm… so if your partner wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick she can play?

Anything competitive. We’ve had more than one one-on-one game of basketball get derailed in a perfectly pleasurable way.

So getting your heart rate up helps huh?  Good to know.  In the interests of fair play… is there one place on her body that you know will drive her wild-in and out of bed?

With most women there’s a sensitive place on their neck or near the collar bone. Delilah has sensitive thighs. We were at a press conference just after the events of the book and I rubbed my hand across her thigh. She cut the conference short and we barely made it out of sight of the cameras before she had my shirt off.

Wow!  That’s certainly an interesting (and possibly inconvenient) erogenous zone… Bet it comes in handy for ending arguments… Oh, here’s a great question.  What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in Even Villains Have Interns?

Laid my entire life story and weaknesses open for John Q. Public to read. There’s nothing like an unauthorized biography running loose in the world to ruin your day.

Yeah, I can see how that would put a crimp in your day.  I’m sure we’re all going to love reading it though!  Before we go, is there anything else you would like to add?

If you’re wondering whether Delilah was worth it, she is.

Judging from the grin on his face… I’d say she must’ve been!  I hope that you’ll all pre-order your copies NOW!!

Until next time…

Oh boy are you guys in for a treat today!  I’d like you all to join me in giving a warm welcome to…what did you say your name was?

Honey, I’m not telling you my name. If you want to read about my little escapade, I shall remain nameless.

Oh, it’s going to be like that is it?  Well, alright then, at least tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

She likes to fantasize about stuff that isn’t going to happen to her. So, lucky me, it happens to me. *her smile is wolfish*

So your author has a vivid imagination huh?  Good to know.  So what was it that drew you to your mate?

Mate? Do you mean my boyfriend? Or do you mean  *she blushes becomingly* or the other guy—the intruder?

I’m going to leave that one alone!!  Here’s a great question… and it’s a bit naughty… where was the wildest place you seduced your partner?

Hey, I just leave the curtains open…

That’s certainly simple, yet effective!  Boxers, briefs or commando?

How about neither? No socks might be good too.

Oh yes, socks have to go!  What is with people who keep their socks on?  I digress… What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in The Intruder?

Hmm. Well, she did include what I was thinking during the action. I might not want anyone to know that I really REALLY wanted what was happening to happen.

That’s the downside of your author knowing your innermost thoughts!  I’m sure it’ll make for an interesting read.  Is there anything else you would like to add?

I have no intention of closing my curtains while I, er, pleasure myself. And I’ll leave my door unlocked so he can just let himself in and…well, you never know what might happen

I think this book is going on my eReader… Domino can wait ’till I’m done with it!!  I hope you’ll all order a copy today… it’s going to be a hot one!

Pet Peeve – The Social Media Leech

1 comment

Categories: Author Tips, Fresh Blog, Musing, Writing, Tags: , , , , ,

As authors, publishers, individuals, we work hard to build our social media profile into one that gets a lot of interaction and reaches a lot of people.  This is something that has often taken us years to achieve and – let’s all admit this – it’s a lot of hard work to build and maintain.  None of us is that fascinating all the time *grin*.

Lately though we’ve heard a lot of our friends complain about the same thing… ”The Social Media Leech”!  I see some of you nodding already and let’s face it, we’ve all come across at least one of these people in the past.  Some of you are frowning and looking puzzled, so let me elaborate…

The Social Media Leech is someone who befriends you on Facebook (for example) and then – usually within hours or days – posts promotions for their own book or product directly to your timeline. Don’t get me wrong, saying “Hi author friend, I see you’re a fan of XYZ erotica… Here’s a link to mine for you to check out if you get a chance.” isn’t quite the same thing.  In fact, that’s still considered chatting.  I’m talking about immediately posting “BUY HOT NEW FICTION FROM own name here, BUY LINK BUY LINK BUY LINK” and then repeating that (or variants of it), over and over until you get blocked.

bannedThe sad reality is that the more work you put into building your brand, the more chance there is that you’ll attract the leeches.  It’s almost impossible to spot them when they befriend you and the truth is that it’s actually a compliment to you and the level you’ve reached.  It means that you are worthy of being “leeched” and that means that you’re doing something right!!

The great news is that you can unfriend, block and report them and focus your attention on the people who are genuinely interested in you and your work.

Until next time…

Do Review!

No comments yet

Categories: Author Tips, Fresh Blog, Musing, Writing, Tags: , ,

reviewsSo, today is release day for two of our authors.  Sure, it’s a big deal for a publisher, but let me tell you, it NEVER gets old for an author.  It could be your first book or your fiftieth and you’d be just as excited and nervous and anxious.  It’s a thrilling feeling to know that something you wrote is about to be released onto the unsuspecting world and of course, you really hope for sales and reviews because how else are you going to know what other people think of it?

The reality is that it can sometimes take a long time to find out about sales figures and so for most authors, the reviews become something to hunt down and look forward to.  There’s nothing quite like googling your book title each week to see what’s popped up.  Usually, nothing, but every now and then you’ll suddenly find a new review.  Oh the excitement!!  If it’s anything above “ok”, it gets shared far and wide… we post links, trying to be subtle, but really we’re hopping up and down that someone has not only read our book, but took the time to tell people about it!  It’s harder when the review is nasty, but we covered that this week already.

If you’re going to review a book (and really, you should!!) then you should try to take the time to do it properly.  It should definitely be more than “Good book. 5*”… You want to make it sound exciting for other people who read your review and it’s a way for you to interact directly with the author… even if it’s not the way you thought *grin*

Tell people what you liked about the story, characters, writing, concept, etc.  Mention a favourite element (without giving the story away) and tell people why you think they should read the book.  Perhaps it reminded you of a well-known bestseller… then say “fans of XYZ will LOVE this fresh take on ABC”.  It’s a way for your opinion to actually matter.  AND it will help the author to reach a larger audience.

I’m not saying it has to be overwhelmingly positive.  If there was something you thought could’ve been handled differently or better, then be sure to mention it in a positive light.  “The characters were very strong, but seemed to struggle with emotional conversations”.  Be constructive.  You never know when an author will take your advice onboard ahead of the next book.

However you choose to do it though, DO REVIEW!!  It’s one of the ways to be a part of ensuring the success of an author and is such a simple thing that you can do.  Besides, we want to know what you think!

Meet Damian from Scarlett Legacy by Shelli Rosewarne

ScarlettLegacy_200x300Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

When Natalia rents a holiday cottage she is looking for peace and quiet. A place to reassess her life and recover from her failed relationship. Instead, she finds a man who turns her world upside down.

However, people and things are not as they seem, and Natalia begins to discover that legends are real and fairy tales have a basis in reality. As she grows closer to the enigmatic Damian, she finds herself tested as danger and passion go in hand in hand, and everything she thought she knew about the world will be questioned.

After years of waiting Damian had given up hope that he would ever meet his destined mate, and he certainly never expected her to be a sassy American who had no idea that his world even existed. Can he convince Natalia to believe in the impossible, and more importantly, can he protect her from those who seek to destroy his people?

Buy your copy NOW!!

Hi everyone and please join me in giving a warm welcome to Damian from ­­Scarlett Legacy by Shelli Rosewarne today as we sit down and see what makes him tick.

Hi Damian and welcome to the blog today.  Why not start by telling us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

In truth, I have no idea. I was simply minding my own business, guarding my people, protecting my village, when my life was turned upside down. Still, I cannot complain when it brought Natalia into my life after I had long given up hope that my mate even existed.

Authors have a sneaky way of doing that to their characters from time to time, but it certainly looks like it all worked out well in the end!  Now, you mentioned a mate… what was it that drew you to her?

That is a complicated question. There was an instant and deep-seated connection that goes back through centuries of history and bloodlines. I had long imagined how my mate would be, and yet I found that my imagination was severely lacking. I was drawn to Natalia not because of the bloodline connection, but because of her as a person. She is beautiful both inside and out, kind, brave, passionate, loyal – she deserves much better than me but I am much too selfish to ever let her go!   

I think that sounds *sighs* dreamy!  I have it on good authority that women who are loved perfectly are quite happy to remain that way! I’m sure that you’d find that you are more than enough for her.  Here’s a naughty question for you, where was the wildest place you seduced her?

Wild tends to be what we do best! But I probably shouldn’t give too much away.  

Yeah, I got a gentleman vibe off of you *winks*.  Are you a boxers, briefs or commando kinda guy?

I prefer to go natural. Our people might put on a civilized front but we are never too far from the woods.

Good to know! Now, if Natalia wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick she can play?

Most of the time she simply needs to look in my general direction – and she knows it only too well!

There’s nothing quite as good as the simple things and being able to turn your man on without bells and whistles is fantastic! In the interest of fair play… What is the one place on her body that you know will drive her wild-in and out of bed?

Hmm, I think I might get in trouble for divulging too much information. Isn’t it true that a gentleman shouldn’t kiss and tell – of course that would imply that I’m actually a gentleman. *winks*

I think you’re more of a gentleman than you give yourself credit for… or maybe you just don’t want us to know?  Oh, here’s a great question!!  What was one of the most embarrassing things your author did to you in Scarlett Legacy?

Embarrassment is a very human emotion, our animal side rarely gives in to it. Perhaps she could have shown my short-comings in a slightly better light, but if my mate can accept them then I suppose I can too. I was perhaps a little *ahem* overzealous when it came to her ex-boyfriend, Natalia tells me I should be embarrassed about that but if I am honest it was a little too satisfying. *snorts* I shall try and work harder on that.

*snorts* Good luck with that!  Is there anything else you’d like to add before we go?

All fairy tales have a basis in history, but they are distorted through the years, changed to fit social convention until the truth is long lost. Luckily for me, Natalia was willing to listen to the real story. If you wish to do the same then come follow our story – and then tell me what you really think about the Big Bad Wolf.

I cannot WAIT!!! Hope you’ll all go and order your copy so that we can all find out more together.  I have a feeling this is going to be a really great read!!

Until next time…

Jinn & Toxic Print Cover 200x300An elite team of soldiers, waging a war on drugs, betrayed by one of their own. A team that officially doesn’t exist, getting all the right results until they’re captured by the people they were sent to kill.

Jinn Dennison and her twin, Julie are a military secret weapon, sharing a unique psychic ability that links them. When Julie disappears, Jinn simply takes her place in order to find her before it’s too late. 

At least, that was the plan…

Tab ‘Toxic’ McIntosh has a plan of his own. To save his sister no matter the cost. Using ‘Julie’ as bait seems like the only reasonable method to stop the Iceman, a notorious drug runner, and rescue his sister. 

Things don’t always go as planned though, especially when Jinn and Toxic fall in love. Can they battle against all odds to win the day, or will they die trying?

Franny Armstrong Author PicI’d like to welcome Franny Armstrong to the blog today.  Franny has been writing professionally since 2002. She is a wife and mother, with three grown children, who spends most of her time writing and researching.

She loves a good paranormal story and her stories include psychics with special abilities. Making friends on social media is a favorite pastime and she hopes to make many more as she creates more stories. I hope you’ll look her up!

Hi Franny and thanks for joining us.  What would you say is your favorite thing about writing?

I love to create characters and give them all kinds of  issues to deal with. The bottom line is that I adore a happily ever after.

Sonds like you really enjoy the journey, the working through the issues bit that leads to the great reward.  I confess, that is my favourite part too.  Most writers are also prolific readers. Do you have a favorite book?

Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit are my favorites. I’ve read them seven times and counting. The characters are so rich with life and trials that I am completely absorbed. I hope someday one or more of my books end up in a movie.

I think that is a big dream of every writer, to see their work translated to screen.  I know I would certainly love to see many of our books make that transition!!  So what do you do when you’re at an impasse and need to do something besides write for a while? What’s your favorite activity to clear your head?

Going to the gym, I walk the treadmill and think. Sometimes I switch to another work in progress and edit for a while. That gets me back on track.

I have to agree that getting away from the story is often a great way to reset the brain. I’m not sure editing something else would work for me though *grin*.  Now, if that’s how you clear your mind, what is your favourite way to unwind after a long week?

Believe it or not, I am a full time author. I spend my time writing and making outfits for my four grandchildren. Yes, though I look very young, it’s true, I’m a grandmother but the kids call me ‘Nanny Franny’. I spend some weekends babysitting and I love it.

I think there are some good genes there!!  Sounds like you have a few great hobbies for when you’re not writing and that’s important.  Now a simple question… Your favourite hero and why?

Xena Warrior Princess is my fave. She’s tough and can handle any situation with or without her weapons. Xena also has a terrific sense of humor and tongue-in-cheek sarcasm. I love that about her.

Xena is one of my favourites too!  Are you ready for the lightning round?  Let’s go!

Favorite song?
Beyoncé’s ‘Put a ring on it.’ It makes me want to dance and I need the exercise.

MAKAHIKI_200x300On the anniversary of the ancient Makahiki festival, reincarnated Hawaiian warrior, Lio Paiaki, goes back in time to face a deadly enemy: himself.

In the final chapter of the exciting Last Warrior series, Lio Paikai rushes to the hospital with his lover, Kord, for the birth of his baby brother, Lono. They’re soon waylaid however, by traffic on the Pali Highway.

Not by cars, but foot traffic. He and Kord, who once were warriors for the last king of Oahu, have intercepted an ancient procession of devotees marching down the old Pali for the Makahiki. They’re stunned to learn dark kahuna forces plan to provide a blood sacrifice for the New Year festival.

The sacrifice they have inadvertently crossed paths with is Lio’s. He must right past wrongs–or there won’t be any future for him or the man he loves.

I’d like you all to please join me in giving a warm welcome to Lahala from ­­Makahiki:The Last Warrior Series by A.J. Llewellyn today as we sit down and see what makes her tick.

Hi Lahala.  Why not start by telling us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

I don’t know. I think it might have something to do with the fact that I own a flea circus—her idea, not mine—but suddenly she seems to be itching constantly and scratching. Just like my cherished and adored tenants, Lio and Kord.

It’s not my fault the fleas sometimes escape. It’s amazing what you get used to, and compared with some animals one could keep as pets, fleas are cheap! They just want a bit of blood. I can handle that, and I hardly notice the welts they leave anymore. Besides, my bikini days are over. Nobody sees my skin!

I’m not sure that it makes you a popular guest, but I can certainly see what you mean and it was your authors fault for coming up with the idea… So what was it that drew you to your mate?

Which one? Oh, you mean Don Ho. I had an affair with him many years ago. I was young and gorgeous then. He had many mistresses, but he had this way about him. He made you feel as though you were the only person in the world. He was a sexy one!

That is quite a talent to have… especially if you have many mistresses.  From the look on your face, I’m going to guess that it was a wonderful time for you.  Here’s a naughty question, where was the wildest place you seduced him?

Well, Don once seduced me under a waterfall. He thought it was amazing and that I was thrashing around because I was so turned on. Actually, I couldn’t swim, and I was drowning. It’s funny to look back on now, but at the time…

*snorts* Ok, that is terrible!!  The intentions were certainly exotic and romantic, but the result wasn’t what was expected at all!  Glad to see you survived it all.  Now, do you prefer boxers, briefs or commando on a man?

Commando is the only way to go!

Now, if your partner wants to seduce you, what’s one sure fire trick he can play?

I can be seduced with just about anything. I am pathetically easy these days. Although I am partial to chocolate. And gay porn. Actually, I’ve borrowed my tenants’ gay porn. They have good taste. They are hot men, and they like hot man-on-man sex. I get my thrills vicariously. I’ve seen them run down to the beach in the middle of the night for a quickie. Me, I’d be afraid of stepping on a jellyfish or something.

Well, come to think of it, I wouldn’t be running down to the beach in the dark either, but I like how you think! What is the one place on your partner’s body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?

His doodah of course. All men like their doodah to be played with. Was that a trick question? I might be old, but I haven’t forgotten!

I suddenly have the urge to sing the Camptown Races… *shakes head*  Moving along, what was one of the most embarrassing thing your author did to you in Makahiki: The Last Warrior Book 3?

Nothing yet. Oh my God. Do you know something I don’t? What’s she going to do to me??

Oh dear… um… no, I don’t know anything you don’t know… *grins* Do you have anything else you would like to add? 

Yes. Hawaiian men are the sexiest in the world. Gay or straight. I wouldn’t mind a threesome with Lio and Kord, though I doubt they’d ever ask me. Wait. Is that what the author has in mind? Me and those two young hotties? *Swoons*

I can’t say that I disagree… Buy your copy NOW!!

Chat soon,

Dominic
