So ladies, grab a cup of ICE Cold water and settle down (make sure to have your blood pressure machines handy... this is going to get hot)...
Welcome Ms. Lissa to the Lair! I am so excited to have you here!!
Can you please tell us a little something about yourself that we will not find anywhere else?
There is nothing I can tell you that you can't find anywhere else. That would compromise all sorts of secret naughtiness!
But did you not know at the Hussy Lair, we thrive on naughty secrets, hee hee... come on... give us something here......
I cannot. I am sworn to secrecy...by real life
Okay, you are evil... well... then... can you tell us something about who Lissa Matthews really is??
She's the naughtiest, kinkiest, totally believingest in fairy tales and happily ever afters girl!
You still believe in fairy tale ends?
I do believe in fairy tale endings!
Do all of your books end with a fairy tale ending or at least a Happy Ever After ending??
They usually have a happily ever after is coming around the bend off the page ending. I end with promises of tomorrow, of more... With some books it's left up to the imagination of the reader to define what is happily ever after.
Tell us a little about your newest release, Sweet Caroline, besides the cover being extraordinarily yummy?
Yes, the cover is deliciously yummy... i love it! Oh hell, i love him!
Buck is a general contractor turned handyman all to get close to Caroline... he knows of her naughty past at the persuasion of her ex-husband, but that's not what draws him...
To find out about what does draw him, you'll have to read it!
So... Buck is a naughty man, huh **waggles eyebrows**??
Oh Buck is a very very naughty man...
Damn, okay.. I know you are nothing going to give us more on Buck... What about Caroline, can you tell us a little about her...?
There is that word again... naughty.. can you give us something... anything... how about a teaser of the book... just a couple of "naughty" quotes?
It's best if you just read the warning for the book...
Warning: In this book, there are sightings of glass dildos, leather belt bindings, nipple rings, wicked clamps, cherry cheesecake and a hot, yummy handyman-type guy who’s really good with his hands…
Oh and what Buck does with the cherry topping leftover from the cheesecake, well...
You are wickedly naughty; but I like your style, lol.....
So, I am assuming writing Sweet Caroline was a piece of cherry cheesecake??
It was a piece of something...swe
Okay, now I am getting hungry for some cheesecake, lol.
And I see you are tight lip about any juicy details... So.. let's talk about you ad your writing.
How long have you been writing?
I started writing inappropriate stories when i was a teenager. I did reach a period of time where i tried to write not quite so naughty, but that didn't last long. I can't not write hot, sexy, naughty...
And boy am I ever so glad that you can not not write that way... the stories would be oh so boring!!
I love what I do, what I write... I am not bothered by it, nor embarrassed by it. I know some people have a very poor view of romance authors, erotic romance authors, but that's their problem...
That has come up in blog posts and in reviews... that some people think some romance/erotic books are merely smut or sex, but isn't that why we read... to escape everyday life, to live out fantasies... Or gather ideas for our significant others! **Wicked grins** For those that condemn or just have nasty things to say about those writers or their writing... I say stick to your children books and leave the adults books to me!
Sorry for my personal rant during your time.... Okay back on track...
Reflecting back on Sweet Caroline's cover... (because I simply can not get enough of that man), how well do you think the cover reflects your story?
Oh he's all Buck, (maybe a little more perfect, but if you look at his hands unbuckling his belt, oh yeah, he's all Buck).
Cuz you know for us cover hussy's (yea, I raised my hand)... we love our covers smoking hot... And I have seen some reviews where they actually discuss the cover. What is your take on the cover issue?
My editor and I fought hard for this cover... I love sexy covers, not skanky covers, but hot sexy covers. 8 out of 10 times I'd rather a hot delicious guy alone on the cover, but sometimes there's a cover with a female that i just think is beautiful, like the Shelley Munro cover at Samhain that comes out the same day as Sweet Caroline is just sexy as hell
I totally agree with you... but then I am partial to hot covers, lol. Covers out of the way.. what about blurbs.. how important is that for you - as an author and reader?
The blurbs are honestly as important as the cover to me. If i can't find interest in the blurb, the cover isn't going to matter one bit. I have to be curious about the book and the blurb does that ...the cover is only part of it.
Well Ms. Lissa, it has been a real treat to have you here. Is there any thing you want to leave us with....
