I’m so proud of his second book in the Jones Whitman Time Travel Series and I know you will just LOVE it. Continue reading

Blakely’s Friday Interview with A.C. Burch

Please give a warm welcome to A.C. Burch, author of The HomePort Journals.

Art MahoneyTell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on or promoting.
I’m currently promoting The HomePort Journals, which is being released in TODAY by Wilde City Press. Rumors of a sixty-year-old murder have estranged two childhood friends for more than a half-century. An unlikely assortment of characters set out to find out what really happened. In the process they become a family—the kind of family Armistead Maupin calls a “logical” family as opposed to a “biological” family.

I’ve lived in Provincetown for nearly thirty years in a wonderful old house that looks out over the harbor. In addition to writing, I enjoy making music, photography, the visual arts, and sailing around Cape Cod Bay. Because I’ve lived there so long, I think The HomePort Journals does a good job of describing what it’s like to live in Provincetown, especially off-season. I’ve tried to capture the natural beauty of lesser-known parts of town as well as the wonderful, wacky, passionate people who are drawn to the place.

And now for the shameless pitch: You can buy the e-Book on Amazon today!  The Paperback will be out in May. Continue reading

unnamed-6-2

Genre: Erotica/Erotic Romance
Cover Design: Yocla Designs
Editing: Harper Jewel aka Suze

Synopsis

Judy, dubbed Blue by her friends, is a voluptuous thirty-one year old woman longing for a love of her own. Even more frustrating than her dissatisfaction with her work and the unwanted attention her body garners is always coming in second with the opposite sex.

Bond, her best friend and lover, helps Blue stay sane and sexually satisfied, but she knows her place. Their secret relationship leaves Blue hungry to have a man she can call her own.

When she finally succumbs to Cat’s artful needle for her first tattoo, she crosses paths with Tate. The towering, tattooed, motorcycle riding, American Indian fires off all her warnings signs, but she finds herself drawn to him against her own self-preservation.

Thankfully, Blue’s close-knit group of friends help to keep her grounded, as does the women’s group she attends weekly, but she still finds herself wanting and needing more.

Will Blue ever find the love she needs and deserves or will she forever come in second? Read her sexy story of friendship and love to find out.

“Everywhere he touched, the heat of his caress lingered. His gaze held me captive, dissolving my will and restraint. With my nipples clasped between his fingers, he pinched and tugged. ‘I want to hurt you,’ he grunted.”

Blakely’s Friday Interview with Gary Starta

Please give a warm welcome to Gary Starta, author of Coalescence (Camden Investigations Book 1).

Gary Starta Caitlin Diggs SeriesTell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on or promoting.
I am a former journalist who began writing fiction novels 10 years ago. Since then, I have written cross-genre SCI FI. At least, that’s what I sometimes call it, or, Fiction on the Fringe of Genre. I have released the first book of my trilogy Coalescence (Camden Investigations Book 1) on January 31st.

What genre is your book? Do you write in other genres as well?
My book Coalescence would definitely be science fiction, however, there is some romance, a thriller element and mystery. My previous series, Caitlin Diggs, ran the gamut from crime thriller to urban fantasy. Continue reading

Blakely’s Friday Interview with Ashlynn Aimes

Please give a warm welcome to Ashlynn Aimes, erotica short stories author of the College Deviance series.

10421472_1380700695557795_4633702467540198387_nTell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on or promoting.
Well, I’m an ex-military housewife. I have a degree in Psychology (I joined the military to help pay off student loans). My husband is the one who convinced me to try writing smut, and he’s been very happy with the results (after all, you can’t write good smut unless you enjoy what you’re writing about if you know what I mean). I hope someday to make a decent living at it.

What genre is your book? Do you write in other genres as well?
Currently I write strictly erotica shorts. I like writing about gangbangs and extreme kink fetishes such as watersports and fisting. Continue reading

Blakely’s Friday Interview with Dakota Dawson

Please give a warm welcome to Dakota Dawson, author of several short stories including Fulfilling Rachel: The Sexcation.

dakotaauthorTell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on or promoting.
I’m an “experimenter” and love sex in almost every form. I have very few hang-ups and don’t judge anyone for their kinks and fetishes. As long as you enjoy what you’re doing and aren’t harming anyone (non-consensually of course), I think it’s awesome! I have a degree in English, but don’t blame me for mistakes, as I believe in descriptive vs prescriptive. Right now I am finishing up a foursome story (which might be based on a true story…), and in the middle of a dystopian erotica story. In the latter, sex has become a form of entertainment similar to television that is solely done through virtual reality. My protagonist breaks free from the mold and looks for physical interaction, no matter what the risk. Continue reading

Lainie is a thirty year old, full-figured woman entrenched in a love affair with a married man. Although Lainie loves Mason desperately, she vows never to say those three little words while he remains with his wife.

Stayman, an enigma in Lainie’s close-knit group of friends, has been circling her with interest, trying to garner her attention. When circumstances make it clear who’s blocking his way—Mason—Stay goes full-court press in pursuit of Lainie.

Lainie doesn’t see Stay as relationship potential because she is blinded by her love for Mason. However, the more she learns about Stay, the more she comes to realize she never really knew him in the first place.

An unexplainable mystical connection evolves between Lainie and Stay and she has to choose between a man she so hopelessly loves and a man who offers her everything she needs.
