Ask Five with....Laura Wright!!!!!!

Our guest is Laura Wright ! Laura is the author of several Silhouette Desires but her biggest accomplishment has to be that of Mommy. I'm thrilled to have Laura as our guest, and be sure to check out the end of this blog for a contest! 1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? MILLIONAIRE'S CALCULATED BABY BID. Kind of a long, crazy title, right? If I recall correctly, my title was, GOOD BOOK NUMBER. 2. What is the hardest part of writing? Honestly, the hardest part of writing is my lack of time. I have 2 little ones and they keep me very busy. Hell, even when I do have the time to write, I make frequent trips downstairs to see them.. I'm such a sucker:-) 3. How do you stay motivated? I love writing. Pretty simple. There is nothing like getting a new idea, seeing it on the page, published, and high-of-all-highs, hearing someone say they love it too. 4. Which authors or friends have influenced you over the years, whether for their writing

Ask Five with....L.L. Foster/Lori Foster!!!!!

An interview with Lori Foster, who has launched her first title under the L.L. Foster name with her foray into Urban Fantasy. Read the RRT review --> Servant: The Awakening . [RRT Blog] Tell us about Servant: The Awakening. [Lori Foster] SERVANT is the first of my books focusing more on the horror/urban fantasy element than on the romance. There is a romance, but it’s not as prominent as my Lori Foster books. In the first SERVANT book, The Awakening, I introduce the lead characters of Gaby and Luther. Gaby has a special gift – to see beyond the surface of normal people, to their demonic souls. Luther is a detective who is both drawn to Gaby, but suspicious of her . [RRT Blog] Is this going to be a series and if so, how many books will there be? [Lori Foster] It’s a series, and so far I’m planning on about 5 books. But if you’re familiar with my style, you know that could change. I write by the seat of my pants and sometimes (many times) things happen that I don’t expect.

Ask Five with....Kate Rothwell/Summer Devon!!!!

Here is an author with a dual personality. Kate Rothwell writes historicals and other stories and her alter ego Summer Devon writes steamy erotic romances for Ellora's Cave and Samhain . You can learn more about Kate/Summer at her webites: Sit back and get to know our wonderful guest: 1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? The Knight's Challenge came out mid-September at Samhain. It's an ebook but should be part of an anthology in a few months. I had a lot of fun with that story. Sarkany is an acquisitive dragon who's taken human form. Instead of gathering the traditional cave of riches (although he has a couple of those, too) he's going after real estate. He's intrigued by one of the humans trying to drive him away and decides to accept her challenge, but only if she agrees to make herself the prize if he wins. It's the basic idea of knight versus dragon except
