The Next Big Thing Challenge Week 12

Release date: 9-12-12! 

How this works: There are ten interview questions and I’ll answer these questions for Demon Mine and then tag five more authors who will then answer my ten questions and post on their blog. Special thanks to Tara Chevrestt for tagging me and you can check out her interview here.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Zoe Saldana and Oded Fehr.  Both of them have a bit of darkness about them that I love.  They also have the look.

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?   Can love survive the passage of time?

Will your book be self published or represented by an agency? Evernight Publishing

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? About two months, give or take.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Hmmm hard to say really.  It has paranormal elements, romantic elements, angels and demons, erotic elements…I would say it has something in it for everyone.

Who or what inspired you to write this book? A call for submission came out looking for a story on succubi in an erotic romance.  The muse and the characters had other ideas on how this story would be played out.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? I really think that if your looking for a wonderful happily ever after look no further. 🙂  Angels and Demons at play.

Thank you all for playing along with me.

Massage Your Way To A Better Sex Life By Dahlia DeWinters

Please welcome Guest Blogger Dahlia DeWinters!  Thanks for coming by with this very  interesting post Dahlia!

Massage for Boosting your Sex Life You’ve got your essential oil love massage mix and you’re ready to go, right? Not quite. There is a way to apply these “magical” oils so that they reach their maximum effect on both partners. Welcome to the world of erotic massage. Before we begin….this is a small point, but one that many may overlook. Be sure your hands are smooth. No hangnails, no jagged dry cuticles. The skin can be very sensitive and a scratch from dry skin can ruin the mood in a heartbeat. Set the atmosphere: Light candles (be careful with open flames). You may also drape sheer, colored cloth over a lamp, or even use a colored light bulb. Turn on some music to put you in the mood. Burn incense that complements the massage scents that you will be using. Strip down. Period. This is not the time to be worried about flaws. It’s you and your partner and that’s all that counts. Warm the oil between your hands before applying to your partner’s back. My oil of choice is food-grade virgin coconut oil. I highly, highly recommend it. Not only does it have lovely slip and glide, it is edible, and good for you too, if you choose to …lick it. In addition, it’s non-allergenic and won’t sting the sensitive parts. Stroke the skin of the back in warm, slow waves. Use your body weight as pressure (modify as necessary). Don’t tire your arms out, you’ll need them for later. The point of erotic massage is to bring your skin in contact with your partner’s as much as possible. A kiss at the nape of the neck, on the jawbone, anywhere you like will heighten the sensation. Switch places and enjoy the pampering. Soon you both will be smelling of a lovely tropical oil, have well conditioned skin and a very good time in the bedroom. Safe Sex tip: Use polyurethane condoms, such as Durex Avanti Polyurethane as latex condoms may be weakened by the oil. Have fun!

 Dahlia’s latest book The Wisest Maiden is available now. Buy it and you’ll see how the massage works to the heroine’s advantage. 

Blurb:Betrayed by his first wife, King Toridesh gives his new brides no chance to deceive him. After he marries a virgin of his choosing and consummates the marriage, he has them killed. As an only child, Issalia has been sheltered by her parents in an attempt to shield her from their king’s murderous intent. When her mother falls ill, Issalia refuses to allow their market-stall be closed for the day, knowing this one day of income stands between them and poverty. While in disguise, the king spies the lovely Issalia in the marketplace and takes her as his next bride. Will Issalia succumb to the fate of the virgin brides before her, or will she be able to break the king’s curse?

Swimming Lessons by Dahlia DeWinters 7/19/2012

Blurb:  On a warm summer day, a normally prudent woman makes a drastic change with the help of too much caffeine and her hot, younger neighbor.

My title Mocha Kisses is available now at and Barnes and Noble:


Two mocha lattes and a pact.

Though a decade apart in age and from different ethnic backgrounds, will their mutual love of books and addiction to mocha lattes make for one evening of pleasure or something more for geeky Ronan and Meredith?

Meri didn’t think Ronan was serious about their agreement to spend time together if both were single by her thirty-fifth birthday. After all, he was still seeing that redhead when they made the pact.

Ronan worried Meri would think him too young for the kind of commitment he wanted from her. Can one chocolate-drenched encounter overcome all their obstacles and concerns?
