Q&A with Mia Epsilon!!!

1.  Tell us about your newest release.

That Night is a short sexy Flirt detailing an event mentioned in my first novel Wedding Belle Blues. Anna and Robin make a decision which literally affects the rest of their lives on one fateful night.

2.  What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your story?

That my very easy going character Robin has one heck of a temper!

3.  Do you have any interesting or quirks or rituals?

I always fill four water bottles before I start writing and have them close at hand. I also have the replica journal of River Song's (from the show Doctor Who) journal near me. I write all the fun and interesting things my husband and I do in our married life. When I need a reminder of the power of love, I touch this book.

4.  What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?

My editor Jen Bradlee has made me a stronger writer by pushing me beyond my self imposed boundaries and limits. She's made me realize I can do better and be a better writer when I just try.

5.  What does your family think about your career as a published author?

My kids think it's amazing to see Mom's books listed on Amazon even if my sons won't read romance. They've actually read mine and several other BP authors and discovered they actually do like 'those' books. My daughter just looks at them, grins and says, "I told you so".

6.  Besides writing, what other interests do you have?

I read, constantly. I also trace our family history, which started as a project from my great uncle and somehow got passed along to me.

7.  Can you tell us what is coming up next for you?

I'm participating in the November NaNo and writing book 6 of the 'Weddings by C & C' series. In December, book 3 of this series releases with 4.5 and hopefully 6 following in 2015.

8.  How can readers connect with you online?

Mia Epsilon lives with her ever patient and tolerant soul mate hubby in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, USA. She's an avid reader of almost anything but particularly romance, with too many favourite authors to name. Mia is a huge Doctor Who fan, and isn't so certain about the writing in the new series but absolutely adores the new Doctor and his Scottish accent. She also happily suffers a chocolate addiction which causes her to visit her favourite chocolate store, The Chocolate Fetish an abnormally high number of times.
Mia can most often be found at her computer spinning new tales or in a quiet padded nook (a nook, she swears, not a padded room) with her e reader happily engrossed in a new story. She's currently hard at work on her series 'Weddings by C & C' and trying to build its reputation from 'just another wedding story' to 'OMG you have GOT to read this book!' She appreciates all reader input and comments on her Face Book, Twitter, Amazon and Good Reads pages. Her released titles include: 'Wedding Belle Blues', 'Take a Chance on Me', 'When You Believe', and 'That Night' along with a short story in The Wonderland Tales 'Leave Your Hat On'.

 What do you get when you have two best friends who happen to be roommates stewing in sexual tension? A night they will never forget.

Anna and Robin are college roommates and best friends. Even though the chemistry sizzles between them, they have remained platonic for over three years. One night will change everything.
Robin has struggled to repress his feelings for Anna. He seeks out brief and meaningless relationships with the women on campus, who flock to his charm, flashing blue eyes, and bad-boy appearance. But Robin can't get Anna off his mind or out of his heart.
Anna has watched Robin move from one woman to the next, never settling for any. She keeps up the pretense of friends-only while secretly longing to be the woman to tame him. The combination of college demands, a failed date, and simmering sexual frustration explodes into a night of passionate need. But when it's over…what happens then?


Why do I keep putting myself through this? Robin Bates paused in the stairwell to tap his head on the wall. What kind of an idiot kept up this charade for so long? He should just tell her. Why couldn't he just tell her? It was simple, really. He stomped up the last flight of steps and down the hall to their room. All he had to do was say the words and accept the fall out. He opened the door, took a deep breath, and spoke. "Anna, there's something I need to tell you."
The small lamp on the bedside table glowed in the semi darkness. Books and crumpled papers lay tossed around her on the tangled sheet and blanket of the bed. Her lap top perched at an angle, half on and half off the pillows. Stats, Robin saw, her least favorite subject and the only one she struggled to master. He had made a promise to help Anna with the latest assignment and had gone on the disaster date from hell instead. His gaze followed the line of her bare legs. She said they weren't perfect; he said they were. Sure, they didn't look like they went on forever. Who wanted legs up to a woman's neck anyway when there were so many other good things in between? Anna's legs, long, lean, strong, and just a bit golden from their recent holiday trip to visit her folks in Hawaii made his mouth water.
Robin groaned as his gaze trailed higher. She wore the same blue nightshirt he'd seen her wear a thousand times. Thin from numerous washings, all but transparent, it rode high on thighs he'd give his right arm to caress, which made no sense, because without his arm he'd never be able to— Anna whispered something and shifted a bit, her thighs parting slightly. He felt actual pain as the cotton rode a bit higher and all the blood surged to one particular part of his body. Did she have on those cute little smiley face panties? Or did she wear the ones with the little bows? She usually only chose her silk ones for special occasions like parties.
"Jesus, get a grip on yourself." Robin ran a hand through his hair. "I've not perving my best friend while she sleeps. I'm not so desperate. Yet."
