Out Visiting2

So, yesterday, I was over visiting with my very good friend Shehanne Moore. I had planned to tell you all about my upcoming release Sliding Into Home, which is now available for early download through Totally Bound Publishing.

Unfortunately, apparently I was banned, Shey didn’t send me any questions, and I only gave her (gasp) promo. So the hamsters stepped up to the wheel, and after a few spins, filled in.  Thanks fellas. There’s a belly rub for each of you next time I see you.

You can read all about it over at Shehanne’s now, finally up and running again blog (cause she was banned too).

 

I’m out of the house again today, over visiting with Delilah Devlin.  Today I’m talking about

The one question authors tend to get asked – where do you get your story ideas?  Stop by and see where mine come from.

I’m blogging today over at Delilah’s

 

 

It’s Me Between Flint and Callm Today. Water Please!

Friday, April 4th, 2014

 

Oh, boy, I am so…oh gosh, I just can’t tell you how happy I am to have these to very fine gentlemen here with me today.  I mean, I had to drag them away from their ladies, but …oh yes.  To be nestled in between these two…strong, sexy, viral men.   Excuse me while I take a loooong drink of water, and quench this thirst I seem to have all of a sudden.

Okay, now, for my readers, I have for you today, my second ménage. My first was a simple story Friends with Benefits that released in January. And I have another short story coming out in a few weeks as part of The Sin Circus Anthology, but THIS…THIS one is for ME.  ME. ME. ME.  🙂  I get to be in the middle of these two yummy men.  Yup!

So now, I’ll introduce to you. Oh, wait, do I really want to do that? Damn it. I really, really want to keep them all to myself, but I did promise Shehanne.  Okay, fine, sitting on my right is James Flint Blackmoore from The Unraveling of Lady Fury and on my left is Callm McDunnagh, the Black Wolf of Lochalpin from His Judas Bride.

so…

I had to swear to your ladies that I would behave, but *winks* they’re not here. And frankly, what they don’t know won’t hurt them.  😉 😉

f_v_f

So, I’ll get to the more mundane questions in few minutes, but first, the important matters need to be taken care of first. Flint, tell me, what do you like most in a woman?

(leaning closer ) Hmmmmm.  I’ll give you one guess, sweetheart. See, I ain’t complicated that way. 

Oh, no, sweetie pie, you sure ain’t. (clears throat). And Callm? What about you?  What’s your favorite hot spot?

Me? Well, Shehanne saddled me with ‘’Their soft laughs and lips. Warm skin and shapely bodies. Even the little secrets they sometimes kept.”  But now you’re asking hot spot, Princess, who gives a toss about their secrets, when this here, soft, luscious breast I can just smooth my palm over and this delicate path from there, down over….did you just say one?

Now, Callm, to be polite, I must say…behave yourself (leans in and whispers…but later, babe…) Now, Flint, if you could take your best lady out on a date, where would we, I mean you go?

Anne…just you name the place and hell, let’s just get to it.  (Anne smiles and flutters her eyes) I’m kind of hoping though that what you’ll say is upstairs is good. If you don’t, I sure will. But we can just stay right here and git to it, if that’s what you want.

Oh, Lord, baby…ahem….Callm, how do you like to spend your time at home with your lovely lady?

How do you think and where do you think, Princess? I could answer all the fancy stuff about us sitting before the fire gazing into one another’s eyes,  I am just happy to be with her surrounded by Fallon, Arland and Dug, etc,etc, etc, if that’s what you and your readers want to hear. But I was without a woman for five years  and before that well, five hours was as long as I could do. She knows her place I think…… So, nice candlelight, wine, furry warm bedspread, the firelight gleaming on these soft pretty curves of hers…   These curves that remind me of yours… And I see you’ve already got the candles lit….. as well as lighting mine…

(Anne, in an aside to the readers…notice how I’m not mentioning their intended’s names?  I’m taking notes.)  All of this is good to know, but I guess I really  should keep on track to at least pretend I’m doing an interview just in case you know who comes checking. 

Flint…why don’t you tell us how you really felt that first time you saw Lady Fury after so many years?

Me? You want an answer to that as opposed to just gitting to it? (Anne: Sorry, honey, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you know who is lurking around her somewhere. We have to put on a good show.) Fine. Fine. Well, sweetheart I was stunned. I mean I wasn’t expecting to see her EVER again.  What she was keeping in that box in her cellar at all, either.

 ‘ Course I went nosing. I mean her husband’s dead and she’s interviewing my employer with a view to procuring his services, who wouldn’t go nosing? But then, the worst of it, she wouldn’t go along with my offer when she should have considered herself lucky I made one.

I know how she loves her rules.  If you could make up some new rules for your intended today, what would the top three be?

Anne….what is acceptable to you?  I mean I’m a changed man, I understand it’s not all about what I want.  SO what do you think? Plenty kissing……? Hmmm? Plenty touching……? Especially here…?

Flint!!!

Now, Callm, lets’ switch to you for a few moments.  Ah, just a sec though. I need my water. Okay, why did you let Kara go on for so long believing you were Ewen? The poor woman had no clue and you tortured her.

Me? Torture a woman when there’s so much I’d sooner do right here, right now? (Gazes into Anne’s eyes) You want me to answer this sensibly? IS that it? So you’ve something to show for this? Okay….   Hell why not? It was my glen. I didn’t want any McGurkie setting foot in it. I don’t care how pretty they are.  What they’re showing either.  Anyway me and the boys had a wager going. They thought seeing as she was Ewen’s fiancée, I might not torture her.  That was for starters anyway. I wasn’t exactly banking on her answering me back. Then I wasn’t exactly for letting her away with it. So yeah, I guess that got out of control. It was her fault of course. 

Of course.  How did you get the title, the Black Wolf?

nolllllllll

Well…we know about wolves don’t we…how sexy they really are, how interested in sex they are too… Oh Okay….

The day my wife was raped and murdered, well, happens I met the devil that day. He gave me a black wolf pelt in exchange for my soul. As I explained to Kara when she wasn’t for answering my questions later either, it wasn’t just an ordinary pelt.  Do you think I’d sell my soul for an ordinary pelt I could have got myself? It let me take care of any business I needed taking care of. I formed the Brotherhood of Wolves that day too. Some were my bodyguards, some were men who had lost someone and they were as sick of it as I was.  They gave me the title. Now, Princess, does that answer all your questions…..?  Or do you want to ask me some more?

Just a few more.  Tell us about your daughter.  She’s quite proficient with a knife I’m told, and curses?  What’s her favorite word?

fallonYou mean the one beginning with F? The one that’s not for Fallon either?  She’s five and she’s small for that age. You try being left with a three week old baby and none of the right equipment.  DO you have family Anne? I’m sad she never knew her mother.

Yes, I have a family, and it would devastate me if I’d missed out on their lives.  Though, there are days when they become teenagers…well, I’ll let you learn that on your own.

Well, maybe you’ll understand, I want her to be able to take care of herself. That’s why I teach her the useful things, like knife throwing. And cursing even if it drives her aunt Meg crazy.

It must have been difficult raising her on your own.

Me? That’s why I can’t be without a good woman by my side, sweetheart. Okay I could say that’s what sisters are for but I don’t want to get thumped by any.  So seriously, I hereby give full marks and credit to my big sis, Meg , for giving up her all her own plans, everything,  to take care of Fallon, although it’s probably why Fallon curses so much. If I’d brought her up now….  Do you know Kara mistook Meg  as well. Sometimes I wonder about Kara, I really do.

And adding Arland to the family, has Fallon taught him a few tricks?

Oh, she likes him. She’s taught him a few words that weren’t in his vocabulary before. She’s taught him a few moves too.  Knife throwing ones that is. 

Good for her!  A strong woman is a good thing Callm.  And one who wields a knife and can curse like a sailor is a bonus!

Ah, Flint. I have a very special question to ask you. Two, no three actually. What was it like to be there for Fortune’s birth?

Well, it was incredible thinking I’d done that. Oh all right…  Seriously, I did think I was going to lose them both. That’s the truth and that’s why I was glad I had some knowledge. That’s also why I made that vow to let her have everything she wanted. And if that wasn’t me…well.   Anne, there’s you…..

Ssshh, Flint.  She hears everything.  *giggles* Back to serious now.  And, how was your first meeting with Storm?  Did she like her baby sister?

Storm? Now Anne you bringing up all this is just reminding me I’m a family guy now, so maybe we can’t have that date.  

Oh…damn it.  All the good guys….

Meeting Storm was incredible.  I don’t mind confessing seeing as it’s you. (Anne leans over and pats him on the thigh.) “You can confess anything to me, Flint. You know I have your back.”

I was nervous. She has that little bit of attitude–well, she’s Fury’s daughter isn’t she?  You know I think she was astonished she had a father. I mean you’d have thought Fury would have told her all about me.  Anyway, she’ wasn’t too broke up about the fact she’s had to come away with us, even if Fury did have her head stuffed with talk of fancy suitors and that.  As for Fortune and her…well, that’s a far bridge right now, but after trying to drop her over the side once, she is starting to like her.

LOL.  I think she has a bit of her father in her 😉 And finally, how has being a father changed you?  I hope not too drastically, because I have to say, I like Flint just as he is.  😉

Sweetheart, don’t you just  know how to flatter a guy and some. I hope you can tell the woman hasn’t been invented that can change me… That goes for Storm and Fortune.  I’m only different in that I wouldn’t do anything to spoil what I got.

And THAT’s what I love about you Flint!  🙂

Callm, how’s Dug? And why would you name your dog Dug?  You know she hung around my and Shehanne’s Christmas event.  Made a bit of a nuisance of herself too.  

Princess,  I’m a guy and Dug’s a dog. You don’t want me to call her anything do you? That would be   stretching my brain too much. As I said to Kara I could call her bitch but Dug doesn’t take kindly to that.  She doesn’t take kindly to being called boy either as Kara found out.  Maybe she only has three and a half legs but she’s savage.  Hung about your event? You should be glad she never chewed the PC screen. I can only guess someone must have flattered her.  She’s a pushover if you do that.

Must have been Shehanne.   She looks so innocent, doesn’t she?

 

Shehanne_Moore

You are both intelligent, some might say even a little conniving *wink* and definitely passionate. What do you each value most in a person?  And what do you despise the most?

Flint. That’s a hard one Sweetheart.  Don’t you have an easier question there? I mean had you said value in a woman, I could have shown you in a mirror. (water please!!!!)   Seriously I don’t like people who mistreat others.  It may surprise you but  I do like people who are straight about things.

Callm. Likes and loathes? Hmmm… You mean I can’t say what people I don’t like? That’s too bad though I suppose Ewen is behaving these days. I despise people who abuse whatever power they have be that power over hundreds of people, or one.  I value loyalty.   

Both of you are wonderful men and your ladies are extremely fortunate to have you in their lives.  But if they ever screw it up…you know where to find me 😉

And lastly, over your entire lifetime, what event strikes you the turning point in your life? And why?

FlintIt was definitely when I learnt about Storm.  See my momma was never done telling me how she wished she never had me, and I saw firsthand the kind of life she had when my daddy walked out.  But Fury did everything she did to keep Storm, to keep them both. SO I guess if you want to name one event, it was knowing I was  a daddy and knowing what she did. I wanted to put all that right and be a better guy for her.

CallmMy life’s been different. I suppose if you’re looking at turning points, I’ve had two. Obviously I have to say it was the day my wife Morven was murdered. Till then I was the chief’s son set to inherit the glen. But I have to follow that by saying the day I met Kara, because I saw what my life had become and how I wanted it back. 

*sigh*

What’s next for the both of you? Or rather, you and your families now? Other than taking me for dinner maybe.  Just because I’m special 🙂

Flint. To thank you for asking us here of course. And sure we are taking you to dinner. Candlelit at that. I mean after stealing that boat and helping Fury get rid of Thomas I’m only on the run ain’t I?

Callm.  Kara and I are obviously putting her glen in order and waiting for that new arrival…..sort of hinted at  the end of the book. So I think that dinner would be good…..  After all, we need to thank you.

Thank you, Flint and Callm for spending the time with me today in my own special ménage.  It has been an absolute panty melting experience! Boy it’s hot in here. *fans self*  And you can tell Shehanne, Fury and Kira that I behaved myself…mostly.  I did!  But I’m thinking I need to get them in here for a chat.   Maybe I can get them to share some secrets; you know woman to woman stuff.  LOL.  I do write erotic romance after all, I’ll call it research. 🙂

My Writing Process

Monday, February 10th, 2014

This particular blog hop is all about authors offering others a glimpse into their work, their work schedules, and perhaps their innermost thoughts.  Some of us are quite opposite our real life personas, actually.

So here I am. Answering the specified questions and handing off the big stick to three other lovely authors who will each post about their writing process on their blogs, next Monday.  So, who whacked me with the stick? Ah, yes, the lovely, talented, a woman with a mind as strange and naughty as my own most days…

Shehannes books

http://shehannemoore.wordpress.com/2014/02/02/my-writing-process/

 

Q. What am I working on?

LOTS!  I have many things on the go right now in my writing world. Let’s see. I’m currently, actively working on three stories.  Book 2 in The Vault Series, the book that follows Friends with Benefits, which just came out a few short weeks ago. They are all stand alone, but have linked characters. I plan (hope) to be finished with that one by end of this month.  It’s almost finished, but needs some rework.  I’m also 50% complete on a short novella, a prequel to Book 3. I also have a secret project on the go that I’ll be able to spill the beans about soon. 🙂 I’m really excited about that one.  Hmm…I also have three others in the oven and almost cooked, but they’re not my priority at the moment.  Two belong to a paranormal series, the other is a contemporary.  So more will come on those later this year.

Q. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I can’t say my work is significantly different than others that write erotic romance, after all, we all write what we love, which is quite often based on what we like to read. We all just put our own personal spin on it.

I’m currently riding the line between erotica and erotic romance, though. I’ve read some wonderful stories by some fabulous authors in the pure BDSM realm, and I love a good ménage story.  But I don’t (currently) plan to delve that deeply into the sub-genre that many of them do.  I’d prefer to tease, if you will.  Give enough to set the stage, whet the appetite, and hopefully conjure up a few fantasies. But I don’t want to spill all the dark secrets. I’m not an expert in the field, so I don’t want to come across as one.   

Q. Why do I write what I do?

I love the detail in erotic romance. Let’s face it; it’s HOT, when written well.  But, I also firmly believe that eroticism only partly revolves around the sex act itself.  For me, the rest of it, the primary focal point of it, is and should be, on the relationship and how the thoughts and feelings of the people involved are portrayed.

The Vault Series borders on erotica simply because there is ménage and BDSM elements.  However, I want the main focus of the story, the reason people find themselves interested to turn the page, is because of the romance between the people involved.  The sex is just a bonus 😉

Q. How does your writing process work?

working hardHorribly most days. I work a full-time job, so I’m out of the house minimum 12 hours a day, which leaves very little time to squeeze in any significant amount of writing. I do what I can. I procrastinate if I can’t get into the right zone. Generally, I need deadlines to get my ass in motion. LOL.

But when it’s working, I get an idea for a story line, and then I start thinking about characters.  I don’t know the plot.  Though, I have discovered the value in not being a complete pantser.  So I’m a hybrid now, I guess you’d say. Usually I just start writing until I hit a brick wall. Then I stop and think about the plot. I go back, make adjustments, and then take hammer to that wall.   

Q. Who will we meet next week?

I’ve picked the fabulous three people to inform you about their writing process and why they write what they do. I’ve read their work, and can highly recommend them!

Katya Armock, author of To Hiss or to Kiss, and To Growl or to Groan from Etopia Press.

SJ Maylee, author of. Taking Chances and Untangle Me which are available from Evernight Publishing.  Watch for SJ’s post on February 24th.

Renea Mason, author of Symphony of Light and Winter and Imposter’s Kiss from Etopia Press.

And that’s all about me…well, not all.  I can’t give away all  my secrets! 😉
