So apparently moving across country, keeping up with two crazy kiddos, working a full time job, and trying to keep my ass from growing to the size of the nation isn't as easy as I thought it would be. But then again, most women think their Wonder Woman at times, right? Which reminds me of when my local romance chapter had given me that nickname about two years ago. Ahhhh....to go back in time and have that kind of energy again. *laughs*
Anyhow, things are on the horizon in the world of DC Stone. First up, I'm currently trying to finish a short, dark erotic story. This one has been titled, Not One Night. To give you a brief overview without giving too much away?
"Two friends finally snap."
Not enough? *laughs* Okay, okay. Not One Night is a bit different than any other story I've written and it's a bit darker, too. Think of these two childhood friends, a proposition, and some hidden urges. Toss in a cop and a vigilante, and what do you have? Sparks, heat, anger, and raw love. It should be a good time....once it's done. *winks* Which should be before the end of the month, then this baby is off to the edit-tor.
After that, it's a month off so I can move across country from New Jersey to Southern California. While I'm settling in, I'll also be editing an Anthology for four lovely ladies. I'm excited to get started on that, then get back in a routine of writing.
So for now, until there's more, I'll leave you with this teaser. Make sure to let me know what you think and stop back in soon!
"Her lips were right there, blood pooling in at the plushiest part, and it was a damn tempting sight. To just take her, say fuck it to the entire night, it’d be so easy. But he’d held himself back this long, what was a bit longer? He wanted to draw this out, make the anticipation last for as long as he could. Have some fun with her. She’d end up hating him for being unable to give her anything more than an orgasm. A relationship between a psychopath and an angel of justice was like having the sun shine at night…it’d never happen."
Today, we have Anne on talking about her new release and the steps she took to get this wonderful read together!
Welcome to Eye Candy, the East Side’s hottest nightclub where the bartenders are hot, the cocktails are fancy, and danger lurks just under the surface…
DC: What kind and how did you conduct research for this book?
ANNE: I did a little of research for UNDER THE SURFACE. I've worked in the restaurant industry but the specifics of Eve Webber's chosen profession - running a nightclub and tending bar - were new to me. I've written cop heroes before, so that part didn't require as much research. The hero's brother, Luke, is paralyzed, so I researched spinal cord injuries, too.
DC: Any funny moments that came up during the writing of this story you want to share?
ANNE: I learned only after I'd finished the book that the night club I based Eye Candy on was actually a gay bar featuring leather clad bartenders. Also, Caleb Webber, the heroine's smart-mouth brother, was tons of fun to write. I ended up cutting several of his best scenes. ;)
DC: HAHA! If you could meet any character from this story, who would it be and why?
ANNE: I'd want to meet Eve. She's so determined to follow her dreams and make her life meaningful at the same time. I love her passion.
DC: What drove you to writing?
ANNE: Drove me to writing is probably the most apt way to put it...I worked in corporate America for a decade. Ten years in a variety of cube farms would either drive me into the loony bin or into writing. I picked writing.
DC: Chocolate or vanilla? :)
Chocolate. Unless it's really good vanilla, and has chocolate sauce on top.
