Welcome back to Book Sniffers Anonymous! Long time no see. How have you been since you last stopped by?
Yay! I’m excited to be here! It has been a long time since I’ve done a guest post of any kind for BSA, or anywhere for that matter. *Bad Author * Let’s see… Since I last stopped by I’ve been writing lots of books for people to sniff, and when not doing that, I’m sniffing books. Hehe But seriously… Lots of book sniffing happening up in here.
So, tell us a little about Alexxxa. What can the readers expect with this one?
As per usual with all of my books, readers can expect a scorching romance. Alexa is a porn star…obviously…but she has been noticing that her life is ‘missing something’ lately. It takes meeting David to figure out exactly what that something is.
Now I’m sure you’ve been asked this already but I have to know, why a porn star? Why not simply a stripper?
I wanted to write a heroine with a very sexual past. I also wanted it to be more than just her having had a lot of sex, and or partners. If she was merely a stripper, having sex isn’t part of her job, so when she meets her love match, obviously she’d want to only be with the hero. Throwing in the porn star element complicates things a bit, on many levels. I like messy and complicated.
Can you give us the inside scoop on the leading man in Alexxxa?
Since Alexxxa isn’t a paranormal romance, David can’t pull all the super Alpha crap that a lot of my supernatural leading men like to do. I can’t blame them because not being human changes things. David is just a normal guy. But in my opinion, he’s the kind of ‘normal guy’ that women could actually date and fall in love with. Oh and did I mention that he’s a huge Doctor Who fan? Well he is. Lol
Is there anything that you would like readers to take away from this story?
Hmmm… Well maybe as women we should all be a little bit tolerant and understanding of other women. Just because another woman makes a choice about her life that you wouldn’t about yours…doesn’t mean either one of you are necessarily wrong. Live and let live.
I know this is the most difficult question in the whole interview but what is your favorite quote or part from Alexxxa?
Actually it’s not as hard as you think. I’m a huge Doctor Who fan myself, so making Alexa clueless and David a fan, was amusing to me. My favorite part is the first interaction between David and Alexa in the beginning of the book. David is kind of condescending that Alexa doesn’t know what a Dalek is and she doesn’t let it bother her…she’s interested in other things.
I bit my lip and batted my eyelashes, extending my hand towards the inked up skinnier version of Clark Kent. “What’s a Dalek?” I asked, eyeing up his t-shirt, which had a weird looking robot thing on it with the accompanying term ‘Dalek’.
His lips turned up into a tiny smirk. “You don’t know what a Dalek is… shocker.”
I shrugged and dropped my hand, letting my eyes dance onto the real area of interest, his crotch. “I don’t really care about your stupid t-shirt, just what’s under it. Or really, what you’re packing in your pants.”
Thanks again for stopping by, D.T. Before you go, do you have anything in the works that we should keep an eye out for?
Thanks for having me! Aaaand… Ummm… I always have stuff in the works. The second book in my M-Day series, E-Day is a new release, and in October the final installment of my Death Trilogy, Becoming Death will be released. That’s just off the top of my head. I have to keep contributing to the book of the world, so I’m sure there will be more news soon.
