Guest Blogger: Lori King ~ Erotic Romance Author
Guest Author / October 10, 2012

Today we have guest blogger Lori King, a fellow Siren author who has written two erotic paranormal romances. Find out about her latest romance Reflections of the Wolf, which was only released yesterday! Hi Jan! Thank you so much, for letting me borrow your blog for a day! I’m Lori King, a newly published author with Siren-Bookstrand, as well as a full-time mom of 3 boys, a wife, PTO secretary, and I work a full-time job in the financial industry.  I’m an everyday woman, with a lot of things to juggle, and I use my writing as a way of stepping out of my shoes for a little while.I write stories about Dominant men with a teddybear middle. I want them tough on the outside maybe even a little bossy, and gooey like melted chocolate inside, when it comes to their women. I write about women who are softies when it comes to their men, but stand on their own two feet the majority of the time. No wishy-washy whiners for me. I like to say put on your big girl panties and deal!As for why I write erotic romance, well that’s pretty easy for me. I write to bring fantasies…

Leave a comment and be entered into my draw to win an e-book from my back catalog. I’m running the competition from now until the end of the year. See the competition page above for details on how to enter.Welcome to fellow Siren author Clair de Lune!  Congratulations on your latest release, The Locket, which is out today!! Can you please tell us something about the book? Q. Where did you get the idea for, The Locket? Thank you for having me on your blog, Jan. I have always loved the Regency period of English History. I have lost count of the number of books I have read about it from novels to biographies. After I had started to write the “Prometheus in Chains” series I realised how much I enjoyed writing. I had a really old, gold locket that has been in the family for generations. I gave it to my daughter on her 21st birthday as my mother had given it to me. The title came from that. My daughter’s reaction to being told about this book was,  ”Well it was only a matter of time.” She knows me too well. It was really the idea of identical triplets…

Guest Blogger: Tonya Ramagos ~ Erotic Romance Author
Guest Author / September 26, 2012

Today we have Tonya Ramagos as my guest blogger. Tonya writes for Siren, Ellora’s Cave, and she’s also written for Total-E-Bound, and eXtasy Books, too. Tonya has over 30 books in her back catalog! Not so much a back catalog, but more a library! Tonya has supplied some links, so I’ve coloured them RED for your convenience. Now let’s put some questions to my special guest. Q. Where did you get the idea for, Dangerous Kisses? A. A great majority of the setting of Dangerous Kisses takes place in a public aquarium. I love aquariums! I find a lot of enjoyment walking along the halls and exhibitions and peering into tanks full of marine life I will never likely see otherwise, especially since I can’t swim. Yep, you read that right. This girl who was born and raised on the Coastal beach of Biloxi, MS never learned how to swim. The rest of the idea for Dangerous Kisses came from playing the “what if” game I love to play. What if the owner of a public aquarium was attacked by a shark in his own facility? What if it was later discovered that attack was provoked? What if a former employee…

Guest Blogger: Berengaria Brown ~ Erotic Romance Author
Guest Author / September 5, 2012

Today I have fellow Siren author Berengaria Brown visiting my blog. Berengaria has written over 50 books, and also writes for Ellora’s Cave, Torquere Press, Evernight Publishing, Breathless Press, Whiskey Creek Press, and Silver Publishing. Wow, Berengaria, that is some list. I’m seriously impressed. Just how do you find the time? Now let’s hear what Berengaria has to say on her latest series. Q. What inspired you to write the “Wet and Willing” series? A. For some years I’ve enjoyed swimming at a local, large Aquatic Center. One day as I was swimming up and down in my lane (the slow lane, sadly, not the fast lane, or even the medium lane), I started thinking that an Aquatic Center would be a mighty fine place to meet Mr. Right. After all, there’s plenty of brawny, naked chests, quite a lot of young, good-looking, ultra-fit life guards, and lots of sweaty, delicious muscles in the gym. The only surprising part of my decision was that I hadn’t thought of doing it long ago. Q. Which element of story creation is your favorite and why? A. When the ideas flow, the characters are talking to me, and I can’t type fast enough…
