Tonya Welcomes Lucy Felthouse and her CONTEST

Lucy Felthouse stops with her latest...
DESERT HEAT




 Readers love to know more about their authors. Tell us a bit about yourself.  I’m from Derbyshire, in England, and I write erotica and erotic romance. I write in lots of different subgenres, pairings and lengths. I enjoy reading, watching TV and films, spending time with my other half, exploring the countryside and stately homes and historical places, and playing with my dog.

Do you have a day job?
Yes—though I do lots and lots of different things that make up a full-time job. I run my own marketing and promotions company, Writer Marketing  (Services) where I provide services for writers and small businesses. I also edit for a publishing company, run an erotica website (Website) and squeeze my writing in around that. Somehow everything gets done!

Some of us have things we do to get into the writing frame of mind like music, or drinks. Do you have anything special you do to get into the writing mood?  Usually having a deadline gets me writing! I’m naughty, really. I’ll procrastinate about something like crazy until suddenly the date I have to hand it in gets closer and closer, then I’ll write like a mad person to get it done on time. Other than that, as long as I’m not tired—as I really struggle to write when I’m tired—I can pretty much always turn my mind to writing.

Where do you keep story ideas? Where do they come from?
I have a notebook where I write down my ideas, and refer back to them when I’m looking for something new to work on. In terms of where my ideas come from—anywhere and everywhere. People, places, overheard conversations, a photograph… also, I often find specific calls for submissions get my brain working on new ideas, too.

If you’re self-published, can you tell us a bit about that and how it’s going for you?  I’m both self-published and also published with several publishing houses. The whole writing thing is going pretty well. Some of my books sell better than others, but at the moment there doesn’t seem to be a pattern, so I’m just writing what I want to write, enjoying it, and hoping that readers enjoy my work, too.

Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write?  I can write any time, though it’s mainly in the afternoon/evening. And yes, I have to be alone. Not in the house, but certainly in the room.

What advice would you give to new authors?   
Read lots in your chosen genre, learn to edit yourself thoroughly, and be sure to study contracts before signing them.

Do you write better when you first have an idea of what your characters look like or do you write, then add character looks?
Usually I have an idea of what a character looks like before I start writing them. I’m fond of choosing a sexy celebrity and basing my characters on them.

What attracts you most about men?
Sense of humour, intelligence, nice eyes and smile.

We’re dying to hear about your latest book. What can you tell us without spoiling the storyline?
Desert Heat is a M/M military erotic romance novella. It was originally written to be included in the Unconditional Surrender boxed set. The set is now out of print, so I’ve released the novella by itself. It tells the story of a British soldier who goes out to Afghanistan for the last time as the British are winding down operations there. He meets the Afghan man who is to be his interpreter for the duration of his tour of duty. Let’s just say there’s an attraction between the two men and leave it at that… ;)

Where can our readers find you and your books?
I keep my website up to date and include all my 
books, their genres and their lengths. It’s  here

 Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?
 I’m very active on social media and love chatting with people, so please do look me up!
  
What is your favorite night time snack?
 Chocolate—especially Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. My favourite.

Do you like toppings on your ice cream?
 I’m not a huge fan of ice cream, but yeah it’s nice with a strawberry sauce.

What’s your favorite meal - Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc?
I like a traditional British roast dinner!

A Great Interview with Talina Perkins





Tonya:  Readers love to know more about their authors. Tell us a bit about yourself.

Talina:  First, thank you so much for having me here today, Tonya! Hi everyone! For those that don’t know about me, I write steamy military and paranormal romance books with fast paced plots, strong heroines, and kick-ass alpha heroes.
     I was born and raised in Mayberry USA and moved to Mexico when I was fourteen. I’ve been writing for a little over five years after swearing up and down I would never write a book. You know what they say about never saying “never”!

View from a Dom by Cassandre Dayne



Letting Go within a D/s Relationship


Have you heard the expression ‘letting go’? There are perhaps dozens of connotations with regard to the thought. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m an author and I write in several genres including: paranormal, thriller, same sex, BDSM, domestic discipline and D/s relationships. I enjoy the various flavors, but I find my work delving into D/s journeys has helped me evolve as an author as well as a woman. After years of searching my soul, I came to the realization I’m very much a submissive, at least with regards to a relationship.
