Logan McGregor (aka Zachariah)

This week I am excited to have as my guest Logan McGregor, who is also known as Zachariah.

Rae:  Welcome Logan. I certainly appreciate your taking time to sit down and talk with me. First off, tell readers something about yourself they may not know. . .

Logan:  That I was, at one short time in my life, a British equivalent of a Navy Seal.

Rae:  Wow! How does one go from being an entertainer to a Seal?

Logan: *Laughing* My "entertainment career" was in a major slump and thought I'd try something new. Of course it's not that simple, but that's basically how it came about. I still can't talk about it you know. . .

Rae:  Right. . .You and I share something in common. . .we both attended St. Andrews in Scotland.

Logan: That's true. "Laughing* I dropped out thought to pursue my musical career!

Rae:  Good thing you did!  What else?

Logan:  I spent a lot of my childhood in boarding schools, typical British upbringing. Not that there's anything wrong with all that.

Rae:  Tell us about this new deal in Las Vegas. . .

Logan:  In a nutshell, Rae, I'm at one of the major hotel/casinos much like Celine Dion or Elton John. I have my own theater. I had to totally rework my show to work in such a intimate setting. The best part is not having to be out on the road touring. I'm in one spot.

Rae:  I understand you've had a stalker?

Logan:  Yes, but let's keep all that to ourselves. I don't want to spoil anything. *laughing*

Rae:  You and Scarlett?

Logan:  Yes, we're a couple. It took a while, but we're together. She's a very special lady.

Rae:  Anything you want to tell readers about the book?

Logan:  Buy it! Read it!! No, seriously it has a lot of twists and turns and ends up somewhere far from where it started. Totally off the radar. . . Is that enough of a tease?

Rae:  Yes, Thanks Logan. Thanks.

Interview with Scarlett Bouvier

This week I am pleased to present an interview with Scarlett Bouvier from Lovers Undercover: Impassioned. . .

Rae:  Scarlett, thanks for taking time to stop by and answer a few questions for our readers. . .Tell us something about yourself.

Scarlett:  Mmmmm....I am a businesswoman. Even though my family comes from money, I've always worked. Philanthropic causes are my specialty, giving back to the community and causes I believe in. I also have the agency that  my late husband started. It's a entertainment agency which I have kept running. Outside of work I love to travel, horses. . .to be honest I really don't have a lot of free time.

Rae:  Your biggest act is Zachariah. . .tell us a little about him.

Scarlett:  *laughs* Well, he's my biggest act. We sealed a deal for a huge Las Vegas theater act where he'll be headlining for a minimum of a year.  He has an amazing voice and stage presence. . . He's quite an astute businessman himself; he was part of the negotiations for this project. He stays on top of his career, whether it is good or bad. Fortunately the bad is not an issue with him. On the personal side, he's quite thoughtful, caring. . .

Rae:  In the book it is mentioned that he had one time been in the British equivalent of our Navy Seals. . .

Scarlett:  Yes, *laughs* he was. He got bored once when his musical career stalled and decided to try something new.  I don't know if it's a good thing or not, but you'll find in the book that he's being asked to use his skills in a sting operation.  And no, I can't go into that. . .*laughs* you'll have to read the book to get the details.

Rae:  Something for a sequel?

Scarlett:  Absolutely. I'm not thrilled about him getting involved, but it is what it is.

Rae:  So are you two an item as they say?

Scarlett:  Yes, yes. . .it (a relationship) was the last thing I was after, but the two of us just clicked.  It's a work in progress, a wonderful work in progress.

Rae:  Marriage?

Scarlett:  *wicked laugh* Now THAT is something I won't elaborate on. . .right now. We're comfortable with the way things are at the moment. . .comfortable with each other.

Interview - Tonya Kinzer - The Boss's Pet

I am so excited to have this week, erotic romance author extraordinaire, Tonya Kinzer.  Tonya  is a self-published erotic romance author whose books are quickly climbing the charts at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. If you're looking for romance with a little more spice than the average hot read, you won't want to miss taking a look at her work.  She writes erotic romance for readers who love to become a silent character within the story! You will be pulled into scenes to partake of the activities along the lines of soft bondage and Dom/sub relationships, to feel what her characters feel and taste what they taste...strong sexual desires like your own! Be prepared to enter a world you'll not want to leave and can't wait to get back to...worlds where new submissives and demanding Doms entice you to read more!

Rae:  Tonya, thank you for being here with me this week.  To get us started off, could the readers something about yourself. . .

Tonya:  I'm the sweetheart next door, of course! The woman you'd least expect to write the kind of stories you only read in the privacy of your own home or on your Kindle/Nook so no one else knows what you're
reading. no one else knows you read because you enjoy wearing those damp thongs! *gasp* I'm the only one who knows WHY you read those forbidden words in private! Pssst...your secret is safe with me, hon!

Rae:  Where do your story ideas come from?

Tonya:  I have characters and voices in my head all the time and I'm lucky they continue giving me story ideas. They keep me awake at night and they wake me up in the morning to get me to my laptop! If I'm working on a scene or plot idea, they make sure it goes their way or bug me until I change it!

Rae:  Did you intend for the Boss's Pet series to become just that, a series?

Tonya:  Not when I originally wrote it. As a reader, I enjoy following characters into different adventures and story lines so it was natural that I took Nick and Sondra in that direction.

Rae:  Are you working on something new? If so, is it part of Nick and Sondra's story?

Tonya:  I do plan to add to the series with Nick and Sondra; I don't think I can totally abandon those two!  I am contemplating a few other books, have story ideas and after  talking with a few readers, the vote is coming in to do a western. Those rugged cowboys need love too! Someone has to tame them into slowing down long enough to find all the right places. There are so many avenues a western could go - deciding on the right location will be fun. I look forward to outlining the basics but the writing is usually done by the seat of my pants with the help of 'the voices'!

Rae:  Is writing a full time job for you?

Tonya:  No, we do own a business, The Boss and I, and that keeps us busy! Luckily, being one of the bosses and the IT person, among MANY other hats I wear, I have my office computer loaded with all my writing goodies as well. have to keep my secret - although The Boss does know that I write and market at work!

Rae:  When do you write, day or night or both?

Tonya:  I write anytime the muse is pun intended! I'm a workaholic, and so is The Boss, so both of us are working all the time. Quite often the scenes roll around in my head for a while then I can just sit down and start writing. A mug of coffee with lots of cream to get me writing in the morning and wine at night adds to the right touch to the scenes! *wicked laugh*

Rae:  Are you self-published? How's it going?

Tonya:  Yes I am self published but only because I chose to be. I've never submitted a manuscript to a published but that isn't out of the question for the future. I may decide to send one someday. Right now I enjoy being in total control of what goes on with my covers and when the books get released. I'm just anal about doing what I want and that bad? *wicked laugh* The Boss already knows this about me and he knows he can't make me do something I don't want. I'm also lucky that he whisks me away on convention/short getaways and those are fun times for us, so we do make time to relax!

Rae:  What attracts you to a man?

Tonya:  More than looks has to be his confidence, by far. He doesn't have to look like Adonis, although that is a distraction, if he knows who he is and where he's headed...and comfortable with that...he will look great! But all that aside, a man who rolls his long sleeves up to his forearms...mmm...just gets me, I'm not sure why but I love watching the muscles work in his forearm as he reads a paper or works a doesn't matter!

Rae:  What advice would you give new authors?

Tonya:  Ask for reviews and interview/guest spots on blogs. Many authors are looking for guest authors and many also enjoy helping those new authors get a chance to be in front of readers. Get your website up, Facebook, Twitter, blog, and get your name out there by commenting and tweeting!  Find a good critique partner who will help read through for errors and give pointers. Read your work out loud. If it doesn't read smooth for you, it won't read smooth for your readers! Learn POV and strive to stay iin it. Head hopping makes the reader dizzy and/or they'll toss the book against the wall! I have a few articles on my website for new readers and enjoy helping where I can.

Rae:  Tell us about your latest book. . .

Tonya:  Book four released in mid-January titled 'Their Submissive Switch' and Sondra steps up to the plate to show her Masters just how much she's learned. The tables turn and  one of them is under her dominate hands! Before all that happens though, Sondra gets her first taste of a female Domme --Can she handle a woman's touch or will her body betray her? Read the excerpt and see
( but be warned - it IS rated XXX.
