A Good Year Book Spotlight with Tara Fox Hall…
Feb 25th, 2017 by Regina

 

Blurb:

There's no Heaven . like Hell.

Faced with losing Pandora Productions as well as her best friend Rebecca to the smarmy Paul, savvy film executive Debbie makes a pact with the demon Shaker, agreeing to bind herself to him as his human master in return for killing Paul and securing Pandora’s future. Yet even as Pandora gains accolades and renown, Debbie’s strong resolve begins to crumble under the weight of her actions. And the pleasure she finds in Shaker’s arms is becoming more than sex.

Is Debbie doomed to lose her heart as well as her soul to a demon who has only been waiting for the chance to claim both?

Excerpt:

Debbie awoke the next morning in her same clothes. Shaker was beside her, reading a book. With surprise, she recognized it as a recently published popular fiction novel.

Shaker caught her look, folded down the page, and put the book aside. “We demons can’t always be reading erotica,” he said with a laugh. “Not that I’d oppose a little morning delight, if you’re in the mood.”

Oddly, Debbie was very in the mood as she looked at Shaker’s muscular torso. But she pushed her desires down. “What do we have, Shaker?”

Shaker tilted his head quizzically. “You mean our relationship, I take it?”

“Yes.”

“What do you want it to be?”

“Damn it!” Debbie yelled angrily, losing her composure. “Don’t answer me with a question! Tell me what you want from me!”

“What you’re willing to give,” Shaker replied easily.

“No! That’s not good enough! I want to know what you really want out of our arrangement!”

The casual expression Shaker always wore cracked. For a moment, despair and anger showed through. “What do you want me to say?” he rumbled in a low voice. “You want me to be romantic and say I want your love, that I love you? You want me to tell me you’re free to fuck whomever you want and I’ll still come to your bed on the nights you’ll have me?”

Debbie did not back down. “I want the truth, you asshole!”

“Fine,” Shaker said bitterly. He stood and faced her. “The truth is that I don’t expect anything: not your kindness, not your love, not your sex, not your loyalty and not your monogamy.” His eyes were red and furious. “I have had many Mistresses in my life, and they’ve run the gamut from evil sadist to chaste temptress, Debbie. I don’t expect to be treated fairly anymore.”

Debbie snorted. “You expect me to feel sorry for you? You murder people and make clothes out of their skin! You eat them!”

“I am a demon, and that is what demons do!” Shaker shouted, his booming tone rattling the windows in their frames.

“Which means that you don’t feel badly about any of what you’ve done,” Debbie continued stridently. “You are not human, yet you expect me to treat you like one, to feel sorry for your plight!”

“I don’t feel badly about what I’ve done, or what I’ll do,” Shaker retorted. “I don’t expect you to treat me like your boyfriend, or even a friend.” His tone had changed from angry to resigned. “But I do have feelings, even if they aren’t the same depth as yours are.”

Debbie gaped at him, surprised.

“I’m not a romantic hero, nor am I a cardboard one-dimensional villain whose only impulse is to do evil,” Shaker explained. “Those are the two popular human perceptions, and both are wrong.”

“Then what are you?” Debbie said sarcastically. “My savior?”

“I’m a slave,” Shaker said sadly. “And this is all there is for me.” He turned and left. Debbie called for him after a moment, but he didn’t reply.

Author Interview with Rachel Carrington…
Feb 21st, 2017 by Regina

Please welcome romantic suspense author Rachel Carrington today! 🙂

Q: What is your favorite genre to write and why that particular genre?

A: Suspense because I love the edginess of it as well as the twists and turns. It’s fun to see what my imagination comes up with.

Q: If you could change one thing about your writing career, what would it be and why would you change it?

A: I don’t know that I would change anything. I believe I am where I’m supposed to be at this moment.

Q: Out of all your female leads, who was your favorite to write and why?

A: Oh, tough one. Most of my heroines have a little bit of me in them. If they’re sarcastic, they have a lot of me in them. I’m going to go with Chloe from Waking Up Immortal as she is a fictional copy of me.

Q: How did you get your start as a writer?

A: When I was 16, I wrote a poem after someone I cared about died in an automobile accident. It didn’t take me too long to realize I wasn’t good at writing poetry, but I could write stories.

Q: If you could give one piece of advice to a newbie author, what would it be?

A: Don’t let anyone else decide your journey. By that I mean don’t let a rejection make you quit, a bad review make you question your ability to write, or one person’s lack of faith change your belief in yourself.

Q: What is your favorite free book marketing tip?

A: Word of mouth. Talk to people about your books, and I don’t just mean online. I mean strike up conversations, get to know the people in your neighborhood, your doctors’ offices, and the service department where you get your oil changed. You might be surprised how many books you can sell just by talking.

Q: What is your favorite paid book marketing tip?

A: I love book videos. Granted, I’m biased because I create them, but I think, if done right, they’re impossible to miss and can draw someone in. And there are so many different ones you can use as well. Videos can be created to showcase your best reviews and your awards. A short video can be created to tease the bigger video. And the list goes on.

Q: What types of articles do you write for Movie Pilot?

A: I write news-breaking stories about the latest in television news for my favorite shows. I write opinions, theories, and lists, and I even delve into the nostalgic when I write about Charmed and Xena.

Q: What is your first young adult book about? When will it be available?

A: My first young adult book, Meeting Zach, is the hard lesson a teenager learns when her disobedience takes away her last chance to say goodbye. It’s with my agent right now being sent to publishers.

Q: Okay, here's a fun question, if you had to choose, which one would you choose, coffee or chocolate?

A: No question. Coffee.
