Word-Slingers – Guest Katherine Wyvern

I just love having all these guests. Dropping in today is Katherine Wyvern, fellow Evernight author. Before I jump into the interview, don’t forget today is your last chance to comment for a chance to win copies of Vanessa Kelly and VK Sykes books (scroll down to last Monday’s interview).  


Now, on to Katherine!

1)                  How long have you been writing?

I have been writing more or less since I can remember, mostly poems and short fantasy stories, with the occasional technical article in between, mostly in Italian. I began writing erotica, in English, some seven or eight years ago. 

2)                  How many balls do you juggle on a daily basis, and how do you manage to keep them all in the air (usually), (ball = work, writing, family, etc.)

That changes a bit seasonally. In winter, given my rather unusual, wood-elf’s lifestyle, I am mostly busy surviving. Finding and splitting firewood, fetching water, when there is water, melting ice when there is no water, shopping groceries in the valley, which on foot takes a while, etc. In summer there’s also the kitchen garden, and street music. In all seasons there’s my art, and my zoo, which includes a horse, two cats, a dog and husband, all of whom demand daily feeding, care and entertainment.  Maybe in my next life I’ll stick to goldfish. The juggling is done by sheer love and gallons of coffee.

 3)                  When is your next release due out and can you tell the audience about it? Or, alternatively, please tell us about your current release, Black Carnival.

Black Carnival is an erotic novel set in a sci/fi setting of fairy-tale beauty, the city of NeuVenedig. It is part of a larger tale that occupies much of my thoughts and daydreaming, and that develops in a slightly plottier sequel, White Sands, which I hope to finish shortly. The main character and narrator, Ivory, is an artist and a bit of an alter ego of mine, and I tried to write up a sensual storm in a rich and somewhat poetic prose, because that is how I see and “live” the world.

 4)                  What is it about your genre that you like so much, and what would you call it?

I like to joke that my genre is Romantic Erotica, rather than Erotic Romance, because I cannot deny that the erotic aspect is quite predominant in my stories.

I believe that the wonder of erotic love is among the greatest that are given us to enjoy and I don’t think it makes a lesser (or even despicable) subject for literature (or art and photography, for that matter), quite the contrary. It’s a subject that gives great scope for lyric, descriptive passages, and emotional involvement, stirring some of the strongest, deepest feelings in the human soul. I find that beautiful and indeed noble.

 5)                  Do you think you’ll move to another genre, and if yes, what to and when?

I do not plan to change genre, but I have already written and illustrated a very different fantasy book that has not yet found a publisher. 

6)                  Random silliness 1: Sweet or sour?

Why not sweet andsour? As in sweet-sour pork with pineapple and green pepper? It’s my favorite dish.

7)                  Random silliness 2: Chocolate or vanilla ice cream?

Oh, chocolate. Vanilla, pffft.

Six Sentence Sunday (2/26/12) – #sixsunday

I took last week off, I admit it. I may take more weeks off. Not sure how much more I have for you guys, at least until I get another book in the works. 🙂


Set-up: Not much of one, it’s one of the chapter intros I use, what I call a “squiblet”, little factoids that usually give some sort of insight on some issue to be found in the upcoming chapter.  This is from Chapter Ten of Blood-Mage Rising.

A Public Service Announcement issued by Head Liaison MacKechnie.Warning: if a normally rational vampire abruptly turns seductive, especially if there has been no previous history of desire between you, chances are they’re hungry. Walk, do not run, if you wish to keep all your blood in your veins. If you run, we will chase, and you’ll be dependent on our good nature to stop feeding before we drain you dry.We don’t mean to, but it’s instinct. Just like were-canines can’t seem to stop humping everything that moves when they reach puberty.

Thanks for dropping in. Don’t forget to check out the other Six Sentence Sunday entries.

Don’t forget to check out my interview with Vanessa Kelly/VK Sykes for a chance to win two of her books (contest closes tomorrow night), and my interview with Zee Monodee for a chance to win her most recent book!

Winner of Empi Baryeh’s contest

Good afternoon. As promised by the lovely Empi, this announcement is being made at noon. The winner of Empi’s debut novel, The Most Eligible Bachelor, is Meninaiscrazy, commenter #1. Menina, please email me and I will put you in touch with Empi.

Have a great day. Will be doing Six Sentence Sunday this weekend and will try to do an update post as well! Been busy around here with Rising edits, hence why I’ve been (for me) unusually quiet of late.

Thursday Word-Slingers – Guest Zee Monodee

Welcome back to another exciting, fun-filled Thursday edition of the Word-Slingers. Minor business, then on to the guest, Zee Monodee. There is a contest (I love these!), so be sure to check it out toward the bottom. Today is the last day to comment for a chance to win a copy of Empi Baryeh’s debut, The Most Eligible Bachelor. Winner to be announced tomorrow. Also, I’m running a contest at Shannan Albright’s blog for Rage & a gift card, along with one at Alexandra O’Hurley’s blog for a copy of Rage. If you haven’t visited/commented, don’t miss out!

Without further ado, I give you Zee Monodee!

First of all, it’s lovely to be here! Thanks for the invite, Tory J (I love having you, Zee!)

1) How long have you been writing?

 Let’s see…About 7 years now. Can’t believe it’s been so much time, yet at the same time, it feels like I’ve been writing forever. I was always story-inclined, and most of my English and French essays at school resembled what we writers would call a synopsis for Harlequin/Mills&Boon J

But actively writing towards publication – that’s 7 years. I started penning a story, with no intention to write more, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I had to do something to keep myself sane between chemo rounds. Somehow, that story veered into a 3-book series on me, and I haven’t looked back ever since.

2) How many balls do you juggle on a daily basis, and how do you manage to keep them all in the air (usually), (ball = work, writing, family, etc.)

I actually wonder if they’re all in the air… JI’m basically a stay-at-home-mum, to not say a “kept woman”, lol. I don’t hold a day job, yet I’m not a desperate housewife either. Hopeless housewife, yes – housework and domestic work mix with me like water and oil. I’m also the designated chauffeur, taking our 2 boys (son is 9, stepson is 13) between school and the gym and jujitsu lessons, etc. 

But the trick, I’ve found, is to have a solid schedule in place. I take care of all my “roles” at their designated time in the day. After being the mum and chauffeur in the morning, I come back to an empty house and immerse myself into being the author and person actively on social networks. Then when it’s time to pick the kids up again, I’m back again into Mummy skin, and once home, I head into the kitchen, until dinner, after which the kids are in bed. If I’m on a deadline, I’ll head back to the laptop to work, if not, you’ll probably find me either spending some time with my husband, and reading a book when he heads to bed at the ungodly hour of 9PM. J 

So yes, it’s all about planning and organizing for me.

3) When is your next release due out and can you tell the audience about it?

I don’t have the release date yet – but in the coming months, Book 2 of my Corpus Bridesseries will be out. Corpus Brides is a romantic suspense/espionage thriller series that focuses on the lives, and love interest, of the clandestine agents in the Corpus Agency, a fictional secret operatives’ agency I invented.

So Book 2 is titled Before The Morning, and though a stand-alone book, it actually is the prequel to Book 1, Walking The Edge, and sets up the events that take place in Book 1. Corpus Brides is a 3-book series, and Book 1 delves into the backstory of the happenings at the heart of the agency that year. It also focuses on Rayne Cheltham, operative name: Kali, a clandestine agent who’s also a highly trained, super-efficient assassin.

When the story starts, Rayne is undercover on a mission when she comes face-to-face with Ash Gilfoy, her childhood best friend, and the only man she has ever loved.

Meeting Ash again tilts her world on its axis, and Rayne knows she can no longer continue being the cold, heartless killer working for the greater good. Yearnings to be a woman – to be Ash’s woman – take over her heart, and this is what she sets out to do, reel Ash in to her side, where he was always meant to be.

Ash however has no clue that Rayne is a spy and an assassin, and without realizing, he falls into the trap Rayne has set for him, ending up as her husband. Suddenly in a squeeze, he also knows he has to make the best of the situation, because sweet and innocent Rayne deserves all the happiness and love in the world.

But hiding your past is hard, and living day-to-day life under a borrowed persona is tedious – as Rayne discovers when she and Ash return into her family’s fold for her sister’s wedding. Yet, her crazy-as-loons family and sociopathic in-laws are nothing compared to the threat that profiles itself on the horizon. Someone from inside the agency does not want Rayne out of the game – they want Kali back, working for them as a mercenary.

Between dodging attempts on her life, dealing with a bridezilla’s entourage, and keeping her past and true identity from her husband, Rayne has her work cut out for her. Staying alive becomes a race, one she isn’t sure she will win…

4) What is it about the romantic suspense genre that you like so much?

You know, I fell into this genre without realizing it. JI started writing Book 1 of the Corpus Brides series, Walking The Edge, which features an amnesiac heroine. At first, I didn’t know what Amelia’s forgotten memory held. But little by little, as she went on the quest for her past, and I was right along with her, we found clues that led us to the world of clandestine agents and espionage. It wasn’t a conscious decision on my part to take that route. I only know I needed some really rattling skeletons in Amelia’s closet, and everything spun from that.

But I grew addicted to the edge present in romantic suspense. I’m not a fan of wallflower heroines or women who don’t stand up and take their destiny in hand, and romantic suspense is a genre where the woman has got to be assertive and ready to kick butt if need be. Then of course, there are the dangerous heroes that people romantic suspense JI’ve always had a thing for Alpha, edgy cops and spies, men with brawn, brains, and physical presence.

Romantic suspense combines both of these elements, and I find I also like to up the stakes, put my characters in jeopardy, toy with their lives literally (I know, twisted… but I cannot help it J).

5) Do you think you’ll move to another genre, and if yes, what to and when?

Well, I also write sweet romance, the old-fashioned kind deep on characterization and with closed bedroom doors – my December 2011 release, Calling Home, is one such story. So I already branch into other genres. My next release in 2012 will be a 1NightStand hot short story coming from Decadent Publishing and titled Once Upon A Stormy Night, with an Indo-Mauritian heroine and a Swedish/British hero, set in the multicultural setting of my island, Mauritius.

I won’t say there’s that same edge as in romantic suspense in these stories – the characters’ lives are not in danger at every chapter – but the romantic stakes are high and I do torture them before giving them that HEA J

I still have another Corpus Brides book to write – Let Mercy Come, Book 3, which will be a stand-alone but also the book the ties the whole series together. After that, I don’t know if I’ll write romantic suspense again. Maybe inspiration will strike… I don’t know. J

6) Silliness 1: Sweet or sour?

Definitely sweet! Some days I crave sugar with the desperation of a junkie!

7) Silliness 2: Chocolate or vanilla ice cream?

Chocolate! Everything’s better as chocolate J

Here’s some more about Book 1 of my Corpus Bridesseries, Walking The Edge.

The next step might be the last…
 A woman without a past
 Left amnesiac after an accident, Amelia Jamison struggles as her instincts slowly rise from the depths of oblivion, leading her to question her life as the wife of a cold, manipulating and distant man. Wisps of a dream show her another man she may have known intimately, but is he a memory, or a figment of her imagination?
 A man with too much information
 After many aliases, today Gerard Besson is simply a police commissaire in Marseille. When a mysterious woman starts to follow him, he is suspicious – and intrigued. But things aren’t what they seem, and as he reluctantly gets closer to her, dregs of his painful, buried past emerge and make him question her identity.
 Each seems to have led several different lives
 But neither is prepared for what awaits them when they cross the fine line between knowing your true self and that of your alter ego.
 Danger is the name of the game, and as it catches up with them in the French Provence, both know they better be ready for the inevitable fall.

I like the sounds of it! Woot woot to the Zee!

Word-Slingers: Guest – Vanessa Kelly

I really need to go back to setting these up well in advance. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. It is my extreme pleasure and honor to welcome the incomparable Vanessa Kelly, aka VK Sykes, to the blog this morning! She’s doing a giveaway as well, so make sure you read all the way through to get the deets.


1) How long have you been writing?
For a long time.  I was an English major in college and graduate school which, naturally, meant a lot of writing.  When I left grad school, I worked for several years as a researcher for a trade union – again, lots of writing, albeit of the non-fiction kind.  As for writing fiction, it’s been about five years but all those previous experiences helped me to be an organized, competent writer.
2) How many balls do you juggle on a daily basis, and how do you manage to keep them all in the air (usually), (ball = work, writing, family, etc.)
I’m not a big believer in driving myself crazy over my writing or anything else, if I can help it.  I write because I love it and because it improves the quality of my life.  In terms of priorities, family and health come first.  I’m lucky enough that I don’t have to hold down a day job, so writing for me is really a luxury, and I’m grateful for that.  If I can get two good hours in a day on my writing, I’m happy.
3) When is your next release due out for either of your names and can you tell the audience about it/them?
My next Vanessa Kelly Regency historical romance is out in October.  It’s called His Mistletoe Bride, and it’s the wrap-up novel to my Stanton Family series.  As you can guess, it’s a Christmas book!  It’s a wee bit lighter in tone than my previous novels, since I wanted it to be fun and heart-warming, and sexy, of course.  I also have a V.K. Sykes book coming out at the end of February.  It’s one of the contemporary romances that I write with my husband, and it’s called Fastball.  It’s a baseball book starring a super sexy athlete, and it’s actually a prequel to one of our previous books, Hardball, which is already available at the usual e-retailers.  
4) You actually write in two genres, as represented by the separate names above, Vanessa Kelly for Regency Romance and VK Sykes for contemporary. What is it about the two genres that you like so much?
I’ve been a sucker for the Regency era ever since I read Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer in high school.  What a wonderfully interesting period of history, full of fascinating characters!  I came to my love of contemporaries fairly late in the game, but I really enjoy taking a break from writing historicals.  It’s very refreshing to be able to use modern language and situations.  As much as I love the Regency, it can be challenging in terms of social and cultural limitations.  It would be very tough, for instance, to write a book about a female physician set during the Regency period.  Not impossible, but tough.  For me, contemporary romance opens up a lot of story possibilities.
5) Do you think you’ll move to a third genre, and if yes, what to and when?
We’ve actually written three romantic suspense books, which we hope to get published someday.  And my husband and I have just taken a crack at writing up a historical mystery proposal, which we’re really excited about.  It’s great to have so many options to choose from.
6) Random silliness 1: Sweet or sour?
Hmm.  Salt, actually.
7) Random silliness 2: Chocolate or vanilla ice cream?
Chocolate, by a whisker.

My Favorite Countess:

Spirited, stubborn, and entirely irresistible…
She is difficult, demanding, and at times, quite fierce.  And Dr. John Blackmore can’t take his eyes off her.  The Countess of Randolph is the most striking woman he has ever seen…and the most infuriating patient he has ever tended.
Mired in responsibility, Bathsheba doesn’t have time to convalesce in the country.  She should be in London, hunting for a wealthy new lover to pay off her late husband’s vast debts, not dallying with a devastatingly handsome doctor.
But it is only a matter of time until the good doctor and the obstinate countess will have to contend with the sparks that fly between them.  Once their bodies surrender, their hearts may follow…

Hardball:
After years of hard work and keeping her nose firmly to the grindstone, Dr. Holly Bell has finally achieved her dream: a position as a pediatric surgeon at a prestigious teaching hospital. Children’s lives rest in her skilled hands. That means total dedication to her work and her patients without letting anything or anyone get in the way. And a hot affair with a superstar athlete is most definitely getting in Holly’s way.

Nate Carter, star pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots, has the world in the palm of his baseball glove. He’s at the height of his game, a west coast team is about to lure him with even greater riches, and the most gorgeous women in town are in full pursuit. Nate has everything he wants, or at least he thinks he does, until he meets the beautiful and brainy Dr. Holly Bell. He’s totally up for a hot affair, and Holly turns out to be the hottest.

But will Holly be willing to play his game? When the lovely doctor starts changing the rules, Nate realizes he just might be playing for keeps. 


CONTESTS
Ms. Kelly will be giving away a copy of My Favorite Countess AND a copy of Hardball to a lucky commenter.  Deadline is next Monday, with winner announced Tuesday!

She is also running a contest through the month of February with a group of other authors. It’s called “Indulge our Favorite Authors”, and people can win the ENTIRE backlist of one of their favorite writers. Check out her Facebook page for deets. Wowee! 

Thanks for coming by, Ms. Kelly. It’s been an honor to have you and good luck with your future books.

Winner – Valentines for Vampires

Before announcing the winner, I wanted to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who commented.

Thursday Word-Slingers – Guest Empi Baryeh

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. First, let me apologize to our guest for not having this up at the agreed time (just after midnight). There was a glitch on my part. Second, it is my extreme pleasure to introduce the lovely Empi Baryeh to Word-Slingers. It’s an honor to host her. She’s my first international guest! And third, she’s hosting ME today on HER blog here.


1) How long have you been writing?
Since I was about 13 years old.
2) How many balls do you juggle on a daily basis, and how do you manage to keep them all in the air (usually), (ball = work, writing, family, etc.)
Balls (*sniggers*). (ok, serious face) I work full-time, so I can only write in the evenings and weekends, and I can tell you, it isn’t easy to sit down to write when I’m already tired from working all day. Writing doesn’t pay the bills yet, so that tends to suffer a little more than the rest of my life. I don’t have a family yet, but planning on it soon. Wish me luck!
3)Your most recent release came out February 3. Can you tell the audience about it?
Absolutely! It’s called Most Eligible Bachelor and it started at a short story for a writing prompt. It’s a contemporary romance, about a magazine columnist who’s been burnt by love and is afraid to risk her heart again. She meets the hero, a reputed playboy, on Valentine’s Day, and despite her best efforts, she can’t help falling for him. The story is set in Accra, Ghana, which I think gives it a unique flavour.
Here’s the blurb and excerpt:
Blurb
Magazine columnist Chantelle Sah doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day—not since her fiancé’s betrayal three years ago—and after botching her first assignment as a feature writer, she’s more than willing to put in a hard day’s work this Valentine’s Day; even if it means going on a date with gorgeous construction Tycoon, Lord McKenzie, and opening herself to an onslaught of all things love.
When Lord—his given name, not a title—sets his sights on Chantelle, it isn’t just work he has on his mind. But even he couldn’t have predicted the magnetic attraction between them when they meet, nor the evening ending with more than an interview. Now he has to convince Chantelle that their one-night stand wasn’t a mistake. Can he win her love without revealing a secret from their night of passion, which could prove fatal for both their hearts?
Excerpt
He seemed amused by her lack of a response as he took her hand and led her back to the dance floor. The music had turned slow.
She hesitated. Slow music meant being in his arms, their bodies touching. She shouldn’t do this. Yet for some ridiculous reason, she wantedneeded, eventhe closeness, to feel like a woman again. Just for a moment. Even if she was certifiably insane for wanting all this in the arms of Lord McKenzie.
He pulled her gently, bringing her body flush against his. A tremor rushed through her. His warm breath on her face sent tiny tingles running over her skin. Heat radiated to her from each part of his body touching hers, his powerful thighs, lean hips and firm abdomen, his hand, pressed firmly on the small of her back.
When was the last time she’d been this close to a man? Her breath quickened as raw need surged through her. Far too long. Not since Martin.
Tears stung her eyes as the familiar loneliness accompanying Valentine’s Day closed in. Old love songs always got to her. She turned away from his watchful gaze, focusing on other couples huddled close together on the dance floor. Yearning pierced her heart. She gave herself a mental shake. She couldn’t entertain such thoughts. Once she did, there would be no salvation.
As if sensing her distress, Lord pulled her closer, his hold tightening around her. Every thought flittered out of her mind as soon as their gazes locked, and she began to drown in the deep pools of his dark eyes.
“Happy Valentine’s Day, Chantelle.”
Was it stupid that she liked the way her name sounded on his tongue? She opened her mouth to say somethingabout how Valentine’s Day had been commercialized to the point of triviality, an occasion for errant lovers to feel better about neglecting their significant others, a day to buy enough credit for another year, one day to make the unloved feel even less lovedanything to hide how hard it was to hear those words, but nothing came out.
His face hovered just inches away. Her heart stutter-stepped;her breath snagged. Without explanation, she wanted to know the taste of his lips. She wanted to erase it all from her mind, her pain, his reputation. She wanted to simply believe he really was just the most eligible bachelor in town, and he had her in his arms.
He smiled, really smiled,not the movie star grins he’d been flashing earlier. His gaze emitted pure heat wrapped around a hint of sadness. What in the world could make a man with his looks and popularity melancholic? Surely Lord McKenzie didn’t have the same kinds of problems as mere mortals.
His fingers feathered her cheek, sending another wave of tremors through her. When his hand reached her chin, he lifted her face. Her mind barely registered what was happening before the space between them vanished. His searing kiss was nothing she could have imagined. It scorched her, inside and out. A soft moan escaped her throat before she could stop it. She melted into him, curling her fingers around his nape.
When he pulled away, her breath came in fast, shallow bursts. In stunned reflex, her fingers came to her lips, which felt swollen, having not been used for this purpose in a while. Weak-kneed and aroused, she sensed she only remained standing because of his strong arms around her.
One of the couples dancing bumped into them, jerking her back to reality.
Shoot. This evening would be more difficult than she could have guessed. How was she supposed to conduct a professional interview when she’d just kissed the interviewee, and now her mind insisted on dancing around words like ravished?
4) I notice both books you have out/coming out feature interracial/multicultural romances. This is a growing field. What is it about multicultural romances that interests you?
I’m African and, while I love all kinds of romance, I wanted to also read about people like me, and settings I’m familiar with. I think multicultural romance brings a whole new culture and flavor to the romance genre, and the fact that readers are increasingly seeking multicultural romance says that I’m not the only one who feels that way.
5) Do you think you’ll move to another genre, and if yes, what to and when?
Funny you should ask. I actually started out with a YA story, which I never completed. I also have a few mainstream novels in the works. I’m currently writing a femoir (fiction memoir) alongside the sequel of Most Eligible Bachelor. Romantic suspense is something I’d like to try my hands at. Whatever the genre, though, there will be some elements of romance in there.
6) Silliness 1: Sweet or sour?
Sour
7) Silliness 2: Chocolate or vanilla ice cream?
Neither. Coffee’s my fav flavour
8) Do you have any other WIPs in the hopper? If so, what are they and when are you hoping to get them out?
Yup. As I mentioned, I have a femoir in the works, but I’m also working on the sequels to my two books. I’m hoping to get the out soon, so there isn’t too much time between releases. I know how I am when I get my hands on a series – I usually want to read them in succession. So I have my work cut out for me. Wish me luck. J
