Together Again
by Mimi Barbour | Interview

Q: What's the series about? What's the theme that ties all the books together? What's your inspiration for the series?
I submitted a story for a Wild Rose Press contest called Through the Garden Gate and that's where The Vicarage Bench series originally evolved. Their guidelines were for a short story about a heroine who lived in a village in England called Bury, and who would walk through a garden gate by an old house...
Full Moon Rising
by Daryn Cross | Interview

Q: What's the series all about? Please give us an overview.
The Cash Chronicles is a series of books that tells the story of subsequent generations of the Cash family. It begins with a prequel, MILLICENT, which is about the villainess in Book 1. Millicent is the evil wife of Caleb Cash's father, William. She's responsible for much of what occurs in the future...
Caught by a Clown
by Sandra Crowley | Interview

Q: The title of the book, CAUGHT BY A CLOWN, is very intriguing. What made you choose this title?
When I realized the main character Stacie Monroe had a quirky tattoo, the book's title followed naturally. You see, Stacie's tat is a small clown face with corkscrew heart hair. That's right--corkscrew heart hair. Take a heart. Twist it into a corkscrew shape with the point of the heart as the point...
Mended Heart
by Mary Manners | Interview

Q: What was your inspiration for the story of MENDED HEART?
I grew up in a fairly poor family. My dad worked hard as a hotel maintenance man to provide for us, and though he had only a seventh grade education, he was one of the most intelligent and honest men I've ever known. Our home was filled with love, but we struggled financially, and most of my clothes...
Somewhere My Lass
by Beth Trissel | Interview

Q: I find it fascinating that SOMEWHERE MY LASS is not just a time-travel romance, but it also includes mystery, murder and mayhem! There's also the friendship between Neil and Fergus. Where did you get the inspiration to include so many exciting elements into the story?
Thanks much for your enthusiasm. I enjoy a mixture of elements, and tend to include them in all my stories. Plus I love time travel. The inspiration for SOMEWHERE MY LASS initially came from a dream that led to a great deal of pondering where I go from here and copious research. The character of...
Old Sins, Long Shadows
by PG Forte | Interview

Q: OLD SINS, LONG SHADOWS is book 2 of your Children of Night series. What's the series about? What's your inspiration for the series?
Believe it or not, my original idea was to write a series of mysteries featuring a brother and sister vampire detective team. I started writing In the Dark (the first book in the series) thinking I was going to use it to introduce the twins and set up the first mystery they needed to solve. As usual,...
Tangled Threads
by Jennifer Estep | Interview

Q: First of all, I love your titles! Spider's Bite, Web of Lies, Venom, and now Tangled Threads. I like the way they all have something to do with the spider, which is Gin's rune symbol. How did you come up with them? Was this deliberately done, or did it come about in a burst of serendipity?
Thanks! I think the titles are pretty cool myself. Actually, I had titled the first book GIN ON THE ROCKS, and I had thought we would use the word GIN in all the titles - BITTER GIN, GIN & TONIC, etc. My book group and I had a lot of fun coming up with GIN titles at one of our meetings. LOL.

I can't...

Catching an Evil Tail
by Mary Abshire | Interview

Q: You now have 3 books in this series. Before we delve deeper into CATCHING AN EVIL TAIL, tell us about your world and where you got the idea for this series.
I'd finished writing a vampire novel and I wanted to write something better, different, catchy. For several days, I thought and thought... what can I do that hasn't been done before? At least, not that I had read. I wanted a female who thought she was bad, but she really wasn't. A demon seemed like...
Carnal Secrets
by Nadia Lee | Interview

Q: Please tell us about CARNAL SECRETS.
CARNAL SECRETS is a contemporary romance novel. Here's the blurb:

After a rapid change in management, Natalie Hall is surprised to find that she's being promoted so quickly. But when it becomes obvious that the new CEO is interested in her on a more personal level, she pushes him away -- she doesn't...

Hard Bitten
by Chloe Neill | Interview

Q: When people ask me what Chicagoland Vampires is about, I start to answer by saying that it's about Merit, but truth be told, it's about so much more. There are all kinds of plots running through the series: romantic plots, political plots, familial plots. How do you answer that question to encompass the whole?
The Chicagoland Vampires series is, first and foremost, about a regular, book-loving girl, Merit, being thrown into a world of strategic, political, and chic vampires. She has to come to terms with the fact that she's been made one of them against her will--and that she's been tasked with defending...
Breathe Me In
by Lex Valentine | Interview

Q: BREATHE ME IN is book 6.5 of the Tales of the Darkworld series. For readers new to the series, please give us a short summary of what has happened in the series so far.
Each of the books thus far can stand alone. However, the series is much richer if you read them all. They are the stories of couples who are secretly helped along in their matings by three best friends, a vampire, a black dragon, and a Magia (the magical race.) Each couple is somehow related to these...
The Pleasure Garden
by Amanda McIntyre; Charlotte Featherstone; Kristi Astor | Interview

Q: Where did the idea for this anthology come from? How did you come to collaborate on this anthology together?
Amanda: The inception was a collaborative effort after I met Kristi through the RT convention workshops and asked if she might be interested in hearing about an idea for an anthology. I knew she and Charlotte knew each other and as fate would have it, when we met, and began discussing ideas, the creation...
My Irresistible Earl
by Gaelen Foley | Interview

Q: For those new to your books, please tell us a little about The Inferno Club series. Can you enlighten us about the Order's fight against the Prometheans? Also, what seed started the idea for this series?
The Inferno Club is a raucous, decadent gentleman's club that is actually a front for a spy ring in service to the Crown. What makes my sexy spy guys different than every other Regency spy ring on the market today is that rather than being attached to the Foreign Office, my heroes are members of an...
