#SexySnippets from Lilly

Hi All!!

Welcome back! I hope you've been enjoying the snippets that have been going out.

Don't forget to find more #SexySnippets, click on the below image for a link of blogs taking part


This week I'm sharing a little from Lilly, part of the free read called Lucky's Charms

Blurb:

Lilly knows two things, no-one can mix a cocktail like her and Mikal is a stuck up tiger shifter who doesn't like having her around. So she's split when a stupid tigress strolls into the club, in heat. Does she leave Mikal to fall fowl of this stranger or does she help out and distract the tiger from making a mistake the man will never forget?

***
 
“I warned you, this is not going to be sweet.”
“Are you really still talking?” she shot back.
Mikal raised an eyebrow at her before thrusting his hard length into her wet heat.
He didn’t know if he groaned or she did. It was the sound of bliss. She felt so good around him that Mikal didn’t know if he’d ever want to be anywhere else.

20 Questions with Daisy Banks


Full name: Daisy Banks
Genre you write for: Fantasy/Paranormal/Historical
Latest release: Your Heart My Soul with Liquid Silver Books released on 25th March 2013

1) If you were born in the regency era would you be above stairs or below?

Daisy: I’ve struggled to answer this, as I’d hate to be either above stairs or below. If I had to be born in that era I’d like to be a sailor, maybe a pirate, maybe a cartographer, I’d definitely want to be a man because I couldn’t stand the regency fashions for women, rich or poor. The rules of behaviour and etiquette would have me chewing my toenails. I think the best bits about the regency era are the exploration of new places and the scientific discoveries and inventions.

2) Shifter? Which would you be?

Daisy: A panther, stealthy and fast with sharp claws and a long tail. 

3) Favourite colour?

Daisy: Blue

4) Morning person or night?

Daisy: Morning. I love watching the dawn.

5) You're stuck on a desert island. Apart for your loved ones, which three things would you take and why?

Daisy: Swiss army knife, a pencil and a note pad. I’m relying heavily on my loved ones to have sensible things too, but the knife would be useful for day to day tasks, and the note pad and pencil is for me to write down lots of notes so I can turn the adventure into a story when we get rescued. 

6) What place in the world would you live out the rest of your days?

Daisy:The villa with its dream tower I visited in Portugal, a warm place where I could write and watch the sea every day.

7) If you weren't a writer what job would you have?
Daisy: Museum curator, that way I could tell the story of each of the objects to the visitors.

8) What did you want to be when you were a child?

Daisy: A pirate, an archaeologist, or a writer.

9) If you were only allowed to write for one genre for the rest of your life what would it be?

Daisy: Fantasy.

10) Tea or coffee?

Daisy: Coffee, strong and sweet, espresso with sugar lumps to dip.

11) What your favourite letter of the alphabet? Can be any alphabet in any language you speak.

Daisy: W for wish.

12) You are having a dinner party you can invite 5 other people, dead or alive, who are they?

Daisy: Peter Ustinov, Mozart, Cleopatra, Roger Le Strange, my husband.

13) What is your favourite word?

Daisy: Jezebel. My gran referred to all young girls who wore makeup as Jezebel’s and it always made me smile.

14) What is your favourite song?

Daisy: Ramble On by Led Zeppelin.

15) What environment do you write best in? Noisy? Silence? Music?

Daisy: Music mostly classical.

16) City, country or seaside?

Daisy: Seaside, I love the sound of the ocean.

17) If you could go back in time to any era, decade, age when would it be?

Daisy: I would pick Roman, there is much to recommend it, good plumbing, clean water, comfortable clothes, lovely houses with gorgeous interior decor, and a very relaxed attitude to sex. What more could you want?

18) PC or MAC

Daisy: I want a Mac! I want a Mac! I’ve got a PC with Windows 8 and I want a MAC!

19) Can you confirm that everyone does in fact need to know at least one CHERIE. Because well, we are geniuses... 

Daisy: Most certainly Cherie, a world without Cherie’s would be like a world without ice-cream. J

20) What can we expect next from you?

Daisy: Hopefully, there will be more stories. I’m working on a sequel to my story Timeless, I’ve recently submitted a fantasy space odyssey that I’m hoping will be accepted and I am beginning a new fantasy story about a healer with two guardians.

Buy links: All my stories are available at Amazon etc.

Personal links: I’ve a small website.

20 Questions with Nicola Cameron @yesitsnicolac


Full name:  Nicola Cameron
Genre you write for:  Erotic Romance
Latest release:  A Boon by Moonlight

1) If you were born in the regency era would you be above stairs or below?

A) That's a toughie. I'm the least ladylike female in the world, so being above stairs would be very difficult on me. On the other hand, I don't take orders all that well, so below stairs would also be an issue. If I had to choose, above stairs would be better -- at least I'd have access to the library. :-D

2) Shifter? Which would you be?

A) I like the idea of something that could run really fast, so being a cheetah shifter would rock.

3) Favourite colour?

A) Red or green, depending on the situation.

4) Morning person or night?

5) You're stuck on a desert island. Apart for your loved ones, which three things would you take and why?

A) The good pocket knife I always carry with me (because, you know, a pocket knife -- you can do all kinds of things with that), a good quality tarp (once again, lots of things you can do with that -- carry stuff, rig it as a shelter, use it as a sail), and a sewing kit to repair the tarp and my clothes. I know -- I'm so prosaic!

6) What place in the world would you live out the rest of your days?

A) If I had serious money, London. Otherwise, downtown Chicago would be just fine.

7) If you weren't a writer what job would you have?

A) Full-time jewelry designer would be wonderful, as would portrait painter.

8) What did you want to be when you were a child?

A) A neurosurgeon, right up until the point where I was flunking Organic Chem in college. I was in the haircare aisle at Walgreens when the heavens opened and the angels told me, "You don't want to be a doctor, you want to be a writer." Switched my major and never looked back.

9) If you were only allowed to write for one genre for the rest of your life what would it be?

A) As much as I adore erotic romance, if I was stuck with one genre it would have to be science fiction, which is my first love. Then again, you can include a lot of sex in science fiction these days...

10) Tea or coffee?

A) Iced tea -- I don't do hot drinks.

11) What your favourite letter of the alphabet? Can be any alphabet in any language you speak.

A) M, because it's pretty and elegant.

12) You are having a dinner party you can invite 5 other people, dead or alive, who are they?

A) Lewis Carroll (because I'm a long-time Carrollian), Tiffany Reisz (because she's hilarious and we get along like a house on fire), Richard Feynman (because he was funny, brilliant, and we could jam on percussion afterwards), Kage Baker (because I love her Company books and she had a very adventurous life), and Jeremy Brett (because he was amazing and he'd serenade me during dinner).

13) What is your favourite word?

A) Coruscate. A hard word to work into what I write, but I do my best.

14) What is your favourite song?

A) Walking on Sunshine.

15) What environment do you write best in? Noisy? Silence? Music?

A) Instrumental music, either soundtracks or classical.

16) City, country or seaside?

A) City girl all the way -- south side of Chicago, represent!

17) If you could go back in time to any era, decade, age when would it be?

A) Victorian Oxford, around 1870, and I'd stand outside Carroll's rooms and throw pebbles at his window until he agreed to talk to me, because I'm immature like that.

18) PC or MAC

A) This is a Mac household all the way.

19) Can you confirm that everyone does in fact need to know at least one CHERIE. Because well, we are geniuses... 

A) But of course -- how can one bear to go through life without knowing a Cherie? It would be trés dismal, otherwise.

20) What can we expect next from you?

A) My Romance on the Go entry A Boon by Moonlight will be available from Evernight Publishing on March 1, 2013, and I'm putting the final polish on a 90K fantasy erotic romance titled Storm Season, intended to be the first book in my Olympic Cove series. After that's done, there's the MMF erotic romance set in 1923 Berlin, the rest of the Olympic Cove series, the MMF mystery in Victorian England, the list goes on and on...

20 Questions with @VanessaNWrites



Today I have the lovely Vanessa North answer those 20 questions.........


Full name: Vanessa North

Genre you write for: I’m a total genre slut (can I say that?) Contemp, paranormal, sci-fi.

Latest release: Cracked, 3/1 or Shifter’s Song 3/8

1) If you were born in the regency era would you be above stairs or below? 

Vanessa: Below. 

2) Shifter? Which would you be?

Vanessa: Bear shifter.
:)
 
3) Favourite colour? 

 Vanessa: Purple and green. I can’t pick just one.

4) Morning person or night? 

Vanessa: Morning. I know, I know. Everyone hates people like me.

5) You're stuck on a desert island. Apart for your loved ones, which three things would you take and why?  

Vanessa: My ipad, and one of those solar charger thingies so I can bring my kindle library with me, and my camera.

6) What place in the world would you live out the rest of your days? 

Vanessa: Asheville, North Carolina. Love it there.

7) If you weren't a writer what job would you have? 

Vanessa: Photographer.

8) What did you want to be when you were a child? 

Vanessa: Ballet dancer

9) If you were only allowed to write for one genre for the rest of your life what would it be?
 

Vanessa: Probably paranormal romance

10) Tea or coffee?

Vanessa:  Coffee, black. Oh, that wasn’t an offer?

11) What your favourite letter of the alphabet? Can be any alphabet in any language you speak. 

Vanessa: V of course.

12) You are having a dinner party you can invite 5 other people, dead or alive, who are they? 

Vanessa: Well, the Obamas, because they would totally be cutting up and playing footsie under the table; the photographer Joey L, because I love his work and he’s travelled some amazing places and I bet he has some awesome stories to tell; model Ricki Hall, because I’m a total pogonophile and his beard, OMG; and Rebel Wilson because she makes me laugh.

13) What is your favourite word? 

 Vanessa: Fuck. And I say it way more than a lady should.

14) What is your favourite song? 

Vanessa: This is kind of obscure, I guess, but “Happy Little World” by Chuck Brodsky, cause it’s kind of everything I feel about everything, I’m sort of desperately optimistic, and that song…it’s kind of sweet and silly and unapologetically optimistic and I love it.

15) What environment do you write best in? Noisy? Silence? Music? 

Vanessa: Oh god, silence, for sure.

16) City, country or seaside? I like them all. I actually love big cities, but spend most of my time in the country because I live far enough outside of Atlanta I’m kind of sub-rural. I like the ocean, but I’m a lousy swimmer, so I guess I pick City because it’s unusual for me.

17) If you could go back in time to any era, decade, age when would it be? I kinda like where I’m at, actually. Historically there hasn’t been a better time to be a woman.

18) PC or MAC 

Vanessa: Both.

19) Can you confirm that everyone does in fact need to know at least one CHERIE. Because well, we are geniuses...  

Vanessa: Yes, absolutely.

20) What can we expect next from you?
 
Vanessa: I have a short coming out in may in an anthology I’m sharing with my lovely interrogator--I mean interviewer—and also Lynn Lorenz and Lea Griffith. My short story is called “Ripped Awake” and it’s a pretty dirty little piece about a bear shifter who goes into hibernation in 1911 and wakes up in 2012.
