Author Interview - Amelia James - Erotic Romance Author Part 2




 Amelia James
Trashy Writer
Erotic Romance


     Amelia James started reading steamy romance novels in junior high, but her mom took them away from her, so she started daydreaming instead. After she got married, she wrote some of her naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine. Two of them got published. She kept daydreaming and writing stories until her dirty stories turned into trashy books.


     She lives in Colorado, but she’ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When she’s not lusting after her next bad boy hero, she looks for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, bloodsucking lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks. Now let's get on with this interview!
Tonya:  Readers love to know more about their authors. Tell us a bit about yourself.


Amelia:  My name is Amelia James and I am an erotic romance writer. I published two romance novels, Tell Me You Want Me and Secret Storm; an erotic short story collection, The Devil Made Me Do It and a paranormal romance short story, One Wild Night. I’ve been writing stories since the third grade and reading romance since junior high. Yep, I’m addicted.


Tonya:  Do you have a day job?


Amelia:  I lost my day job in January so I’ve been a stay at home writer ever since. I love it.


Tonya:  I'm sure many envy you being able to stay home and write all day! 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?


Amelia:  I wake up. I’m a morning person. I do my best writing after a good night’s sleep. Daydreaming about my muse helps too.


Tonya:  Do you have a card file where you keep story ideas? Where do they come from?


Amelia:  I keep a notebook with me at all times. I also have ideas on my computer. I get most of my ideas from my dirty mind. ;o)


Tonya:  If you’re self-published, can you tell us a bit about that and how it’s going for you?


Amelia:  After I lost my job, I decided to self-publish because I couldn’t wait months for someone else to decide whether or not they wanted to publish my book. Self-publishing is a lot of hard work and it’s emotionally draining, but it’s rewarding when your marketing efforts start to pay off. It takes time and patience, but I think I’m getting to that point now.


Tonya:  Self-publishing is hard; trying to find the balance between writing and marketing but I love it all! Makes us crazy some days but it's well worth it in the end. Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write?


Amelia:  The reason I get up to write at 5am is because no one else in their right mind is up that early.


Tonya:  I'm a night writer for the most part; I doubt anyone will ever see me up and writing at 5 am! Do you write better when you first have an idea of what your characters look like or do you write, then add character looks?


Amelia:  Personality is more important to me than looks (in real life too), but sometimes knowing what a character looks like can help me develop his/her personality.


Tonya:  We’re dying to hear about your latest book. What can you tell us without spoiling the storyline?


Amelia:  I’m working on a short story collection about three people: two men and the woman they share (yes, I said share). The stories are each written in first person from a different character’s point of view. The guys, Will and Alex, are best friends and they’re helping Will’s girlfriend, Talia, explore her sexuality. After I finish the stories, I’m going to write a romance novel for Alex, and I may write one about how Will and Talia meet.


Tonya:  Those sound like great story lines. We can't wait to see more books by you and I'm sure all your fans are anxious! Where can our readers find you and your books?


Amelia:  On Twitter, I’m known as TrashyWriter. My blog is Trashy’s Treasures.  You’ll find links to my books, excerpts and short stories. My books are available on Kindle, Nook, and iBooks.


Tonya:  Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?


Amelia:  Look for a new short story from me in END, An Apocalyptic Anthology coming December 2011 and please comment at the end then hop over and follow my blog to be entered in my contest! Drawing is Saturday, the 17th!


Tonya:  What is your favorite night time snack?


Amelia:  Lucky Charms


Tonya:  Do you like toppings on your ice cream?


Amelia:  I’d rather have the toppings in my ice cream.


Tonya:  What’s your favorite meal - Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc?


Amelia:  Chinese

Excerpt:

Here’s an excerpt from my work in progress: Her Boyfriend’s Bed
“Where do you want to be licked?”  I dragged my tongue along her throat.
“Mmm…that’s a good spot.”
“Where’s your favorite spot?”
Talia’s eyes flashed and she pouted.  “You’re a mean bastard.”
“I know.  Tell me.”
She grumbled and squirmed.  “Between my legs.”
I shook my head.  “Tell me exactly.”
“Lick my…pussy.”
“Better.  Which part?”
Now she really was confused.
“Some parts are more fun than others.”  I flicked my thumb over her clit.
“Oh,” she gasped, “right there.”
“Say the words.”
She chewed her lip.  “My button,” she whispered.
“What the hell’s a button?”  Will might let her get away with that, but I wouldn’t.  “If you don’t tell me, I won’t know where to lick you.”
Talia pressed her lips together. 
“Okay, I guess you don’t want it that bad. Good night.”  I rolled off her.
“Wait wait wait….”  She grabbed my arm and pulled me back to her.  “Lick me…please.”  Her pathetic blue eyes begged me to do it.  She sighed and groaned, rubbing her pussy against my leg and whispering ‘please don’t make me’ into my shoulder.  The girl was gonna win an Oscar if she kept up this act, but I didn’t say anything. 
Finally, she swallowed hard, looked up at me then looked away.  “Lick my clit.”
I barely heard the words, but that was good enough.  I flipped her on her back and spread her legs.  Her pussy was dripping wet, and I could feel her heat on my face.  I nibbled her stomach and her thighs, licking her soft lips.  I wasn’t trying to make her say it again, but she did anyway.
“Lick my clit, Alex.  Please.”
I flattened my tongue and slapped it over her hot clit.  She just about hit the ceiling.  Her pussy got hot and dripping wet.  She tasted like honey—sticky and sweet.  So fucking yummy.  I love eating her.  I held her down and licked until she was squealing, kicking and ripping skin off my shoulders.
“Don’t stop,” she panted.
“Don’t stop what?”  She’s right.  I am mean.
“Don’t stop licking my hot cunt!”
Yeah baby!  I made her come again—harder—from what I could tell.  When she caught her breath, I started in on her again.  “Tell me what he won’t do to you.”
I’m glad it took her a long time to answer.  I hate to think there’s something missing from their sex life.  Will says there isn’t, but I haven’t heard it from her.
“He doesn’t scare me like you do.”
Interesting.  I knew she liked to play rough with me.  That’s something Will wouldn’t do, but I never knew I scared her.  “Do you like that?”
She nodded.
Could I get her to tell me how I did it?  “What scares you?”  I pushed her thighs apart with my knees and entered her.  Sometimes she talks easier if she’s distracted.
“You’re dangerous.”  She sighed and her eyes rolled back in her head.
I smiled.  That could mean anything.  “Why?”  I sank in deeper, sliding slow and grinding hard so she could feel all of me.
Her breath caught.  “Because you have no boundaries.  You like to break rules and you make me break rules.”
She’s right again.  I loved pushing her out of her comfort zone.  That’s what Will wanted me to do.  “I know something that’ll scare you.”
Her eyes grew wide and I felt her heart pound under my chest.  “What?” 
“Do you trust me?”
“Do you have to ask?” 
I laughed.  “We won’t do it tonight.  I’ll make you wait and wonder what it could be.”
“That’s what scares me.”
“Now let’s get back to fucking in your boyfriend’s bed.”  I grinned at her and she groaned.  I slammed into her and she cried out.  “Do you think he’ll smell our scent, our sex, in his bed?”
“I’m changing the sheets.”  Her back arched and her cunt tightened around me.
“What if you waited for him here after I leave?  Would he smell my scent on your body?”
“No.  I’m taking a shower.”
“Would he taste my cum in your cunt?”
She gasped and slapped my face.  It stung but not as much as the first time she did it.  “Told you I was gonna play dirty.”
“What if I don’t let you come?”
“Now that’s dirty.”
She smiled and tried to push me off her, but I was ready for it.  She bucked underneath me.
“Oh baby, that’s gonna make me come harder.”

Author Interview - Michele Hope - Erotic Romance


Michele Hope
Erotic Romance Author

     I have the pleasure of introducing you to a writing team who write under the name Michele Hope. They live in Louisiana so I'm sending prayers down their way this week that they don't get washed out to sea with the tropical storm that hit land the other day. Please join me in welcoming these two this week!

Tonya:  Tell us a bit about yourself. I understand you have a writing partner.

Michele:  Okay, let me see here.  About eight years ago, I had become accustomed to Midwestern winters and scraping ice off my windshield.  Then suddenly and without notice, this Southern boy, possessed of fabulous looks and entirely too much charm fell out of the sky like a piece of space junk.  He landed smack dab in the middle of my life. He did what he does best, charmed me and then swept me away to this green-gold banana republique de Louisiane.  Oh how I suffer *holds hand to forehead and sighs* these warmer temps!  I now reside beside this beautiful, lazy bayou and surround myself in wildflowers, my wonderful and devoted animal companions and yes, that Southern man.  I write, fish, and make, as my sweet Mother-in-Law would say in her deepest drawl, exquiiiiiiisite stained glass pendants and jewelry.  And I contemplate. Or just daydream. Occasionally we go to town. A girl needs to dress-up and wear heels from time to time. We write together and separately, collaborating on the stories.

Tonya:  Your lives sound fun and relaxing! Do you have a day job?

Michele:  Yes, yes I do. Well, kinda', sorta'. I'm a BIG BASS FISHWOMAN! HA! Honestly, we have this absolutely beautiful bayou right down the walk at the back yard's edge. It flows in time continuum. Wish I could post you a jpg.  Michael, au natural Louisiana boy, is a  great guide and gets a big kick out of putting me in great places to catch big fish.  Hmm...that's not really a job is it? Okay, I already told you, I make stained glass jewelry, pendants mostly, using the many native wild flowers that grow in our woods and around our bayou. The pieces are marketed nationally.  My husband is a very accomplished and successful illustrator, recipient of numerous prestigious grants and has a teaching position at a university in town. We do pretty well.  I'm a lucky girl.

Tonya:  Well congrats on the luck and it sounds like things are working out for you! 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

Michele:  I'd like to say there is, but honestly I can't think of a single thing other than the mood simply striking me.  I (we) write kinda' in spurts.  Very prolific for a few days and nights and then, the urge or necessity to do so just slips away.  I suppose some would question our commitment, and that's okay.  I don't ever want it to feel like a job.  I work hard at it and then I don't.  We're new to this business and much to our amazement, have had every story contracted so far.  See here, I'm digressing, "Oh. . . look at the kitty!"  I do know this; when either of us write, no matter what it may be, we like as few of distractions as possible.  I'm guessing most writers are that way, so we're no different.  That's why we write at night.  The house is quiet and our animals are down for evening.  No TV or phone calls.  I love listening to some jazz.  No lyrics, just the rhythm and syncopation.  Before I'm even aware, it's 3AM!

Tonya:  Well I can certainly relate to writing at 3 AM! Hubby understand how my brain works too, so that's good. Do you have a card file where you keep story ideas? Where do they come from?

Michele:  I should have warned you about asking me tough questions!  Tonya, please, I prefer the easy ones. Nope, no card file other than in my little pea brain.  We talk about a story, you know setting, season, situations, all that stuff.  In the few stories we've had published, we have used the same two protagonists and spin sexy, provocative scenarios around them and their adventures. Ideas are out there by the zillions, it's simply a matter of capturing one. The initial notion or concept may end up being in the middle or even the end of a story and we create  the balance to fit around the original idea.  My husband is an excellent wordsmith; his ability for description is the perfect balance for my ideas. I'm the creative genius behind all these fantasies. HAhaha again!  He would tell you that he doesn't have all that many ideas or concepts (BS!), that it's me who is the dreamer and conceives the story line and he helps, adds so much to description.  Several years ago, we decided to write a true romance novel.  And we did, it's over 100K and still unedited. For the life of me, I can't really remember what prompted us to begin writing erotica, but I do know this.  It was a business decision; thinking that, since neither of us were published (other than dissertations Michael has written and bien sur, all his grant writing) that getting some erotic shorts published would be a good first step to the publication of our novel.

Tonya:  Can you tell us a bit about how things are going for you with your publisher?

Michele:  Writing seems like a full time job with promo and marketing added in!  The two publishers we've been fortunate to have so far, have held our hands, done some excellent editing, handled all the cover art and most the promotional aspects.  We take it seriously, but mostly we've just had fun with the erotica *wink*  We're still on the ascending part of the learning curve.  It's been a great adventure, even the alter-ego aspect of it.  With the exception of a few close friends and family, very few people have made the connection to just who Michele Hope is.  All in due time, but it's entertaining

Tonya:  Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write?

Michele:  Night time mostly and absolutely have to be alone.  Or, I can go sit on the dock with dogs and work contendedly.  We live on our farm, about 25 miles from town. As peaceful and compelling as this place is, what with being surrounded by lush Louisiana woods and all the water, water, water everywhere, it's sometimes difficult to stay indoors.  As I mentioned, a bayou runs at the yard's edge.  Michael retired from farming some years back, but there is still and always something that needs tending around here.  And . . . I have to pic les fleurs savage! 

Tonya:  You property sounds wonderful for writing! Do you write better when you first have an idea of what your characters look like or do you write, then add character looks?

Michele:  So far we've only used our two protagonists and a few 'incidental' characters. We have a well defined sense of who they are, as do the characters themselves, what they look like and how they will act and react in most any situation.

Tonya:  We’re dying to hear about your latest book. What can you tell us without spoiling the storyline?

Michele:  Well okay.  We just got contracted the other day.  Our adventurous and happily married young couple with devastatingly good looks and an abundance of that aforementioned Southern charm attend a charity ball at a fabulous antebellum home and everybody gets lucky.  And not just our very handsome couple.  They find an unsuspecting victim or...a fortunate recipient of all that charm.  The reader can decide.

Tonya:  Congratulations on the new contract! That’s wonderful news. Where can our readers find you and your books?

Michele:  Summerhouse Publishing took a chance on us first.  We will forever be indebted to them for having taught us so much.  Most recently, Rebel Ink Press contracted our latest story.  As any good publisher and this is why we seek them out, they have handled all the publicity, reviews and distribution.  The stories are available on Amazon, B&N, BookStrand, ARe, most the usual e-line distributors.  We are in the process of developing a website.  Those who know more than we, and that's just about everybody, informs us that it’s a must.  As soon as I get back from fishing, I'm gonna' work on that.  We did develop a FaceBook page for Michele Hope because any slow thinker can do that.  I cannot tell you how many wonderful people in this industry that we have met.  I simply had NO idea there were that many people, groups, writers, publishers & editors, not to mention fans.  Many have become good friend and we've never actually met a single one.  They live all over the world.  We sought out many successful writers to begin with and continue adding those professional type personalities. I suspect none to be strangers to you, and each and everyone has been so enormously supportive of two beginners like us.

Tonya:  We wish you luck in your writing career and our readers are always on the lookout for new authors. Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?

Michele:  Thank you for taking a chance on us, two (or one) unknown writers.  Stick with us and we hope (no play on words)  that it'll only get better.

Tonya:  Let’s do a few fun questions. What is your favorite night time snack?

Michele:  I don't eat much after supper.  I might have a glass of wine.  Michael will eat anything, anytime.  He's quite amazing and I'm quite envious.  Still the ex-jock, calories away from him.  He works at staying fit . . . an it shows!  Did I mention, I'm a lucky girl?

Tonya:  You’re lucky that your husband writes with you! Michael, we’re glad you’re lurking in the background! *wink* Do you like toppings on your ice cream?

Michele:  Why yes I do!  Chocolate and nuts mostly

Tonya:  What’s your favorite meal - Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc?

Michele:  Tonya, are you kidding?  Why Louisiana cuisine of course.  Where we live, the very best food en tout le monde is served everyday on any plate or any bowl at any cafĂ©.  Remember, I'm from the Midwest and it was all so new to me.  I never ate so much good food!  It's not any particular restaurant or dish.  Michael says there's really no secret to it, "Just cook it slow and season it rightly."  Here . . . eating is a culture!

Tonya:  Michele…and Michael, I’m glad you could be with us this week and we hope things don’t get too messy for you in Louisiana!

Excerpt -  From "Service Rendered:  A handsome, charming and adventurous couple depart their plantation home for an evening of elegant partying.  Our prettiest of Southern belles has given thoughtful consideration, not only to her ensemble, but to the many possibilities the evening may hold.  After arriving at the grand antebellum home for a charity ball, their evening progresses with friendly, warm and gracious hospitality.  Our lovely chatelaine decides to heat up the night, first with an unexpected flirtatious encounter with an equally beautiful woman in the lady's room.  Then finding her handsome and commanding husband at the bar, she insists on playtime.  Their moment leads to seduction and a guest room with an antique vanity . . . all with a young bartender in tow.

Bio:  Just refer back to the very first question.  That pretty much says it all for the part of my life that counts the most.
