Ask Five with....KATE PEARCE!!!!
If you follow this blog, you know I like to introduce readers to new authors as well as interviewed a lot of the Kensington Aprhodisia authors.
How about combining the two? Kate's first Aphrodisia book isn't out yet, but her Virgin Cheek is. (Virgin Cheek is an imprint of Black Lace...)
But before you think Naughty Kate has been real naughty, well, she writes the good kind of naughtiness. Oh, and Kate has some stories out with Ellora's Cave.
1. What is the title of your latest release and what's it about?
It's called "Where have all the Cowboys gone?" and its from Virgin Cheek and it comes out May 29th. Here's a little blurb...
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unless you're Lauren Redstone. In her case a little klutziness at a hotel bar turns into an unexpected opportunity to indulge in her most erotic fantasy-sex with a real honest-to goodness cowboy. But when Lauren wakes up the next morning, she discovers she's indulged in more than a night of incredible passion-she's wearing a sparkling gold wedding band.
But Lauren's plans don't include a life-time commitment to one man. Not when she has a nice safe life with her retro props business and a firm desire to stay far away from controlling men like her father. Love isn't even a factor in her game plan. But her sexy cowboy isn't ready to fold his hand just yet. Can he convince her that true love always wins in the end?
2. How do you come up with ideas for your stories?
I dunno...it's a good question! I get inspiration from all over the place, a song, a dream, a question. and then luckily, once I get one idea, one of the secondary characters pops up and asks to have his/her story written too!
3. Which authors have influenced you over the years, whether for their writing or for their friendship?
I've been influenced by Georgette Heyer, Rosemary Sutcliff, Diana Galbaldon, Linda Howard, Mary Balogh. Personally I've been helped along the way by Claire Delacroix, JoAnn Ross and my own personal Beau Monde mentor Julia Templeton.
4. You write a variety of genres. Which one is your favorite?
Oh definitely the historicals, because I always think I was born in the wrong century and I'm trying to get back to where I should be. But I still love to write the contemporaries and futuristics as well!
5. What's coming up in future for you?
Lots! I'm hoping to have the second of the "Planet Mail" series accepted by Ellora's Cave soon. I'm also being published by Kensington Aphrodisia next year-the first book is an erotic Regency called 'Simply Sexual'

Something tells me we're going to need a fan while reading her books!
