Fabulous Five Blog Hop

Fab 5 blog hopHello all! I’ve been tagged to answer these five fabulous questions on the Fabulous Five Blog Hop by the lovely Anne Barwellauthor of gay romance. Anne's published with Dreamspinner Press with titles including Shadowboxing, A Knight to Remember, and the upcoming Winter's Duet.

1. What am I working on?

Right now I'm working on Healing Hunter's Heart, book two in the Little Bite of Love series--the first being An Intrepid Trip to Love. It's been on the schedule for a long time but was temporarily put on hold while I worked on the first four THIRDS books. With those completed, I'm back on getting Hunter and Ari together again for their happily ever after.

I'm also working on some THIRDS series flash fiction and Against the Grain which is the fifth book in the THIRDS series from Ash and Cael's POV. There's also edits for Rack & Ruin, the third THIRDS book (due out in Nov) and Vixen's Valor the third North Pole City Tales book (due out in Dec). A Rose By Any Other Name is out in less than three weeks! It's been a pretty busy year.

2. How does my work differ from others in its genre?

I think every author has a unique voice, including me. I believe my readers know what to expect from my stories. There's always a sweet romance with plenty of humor. I don't think I could write something that didn't have some humor in it. I love writing banter and comedy. Always happily ever afters, even if the guys have to stumble along the way to get there. I also tend to write stories with pretty large casts.

3. Why do I write what I do?

I've been writing romance since I can remember, but I started writing m/m romance through the historical genre because I love the 20s and 30s, but it was tough finding stories with gay characters of the time that didn't end in tragedy. I wanted the fellas to get their happily ever afters. I found Whistling in the Dark by Tamara Allen by accident on Amazon while browsing. It was one of my first m/m romances and it stayed with me long after, not to mention inspired me to write my own historical m/m romance. I write what I do so my characters get their happily ever after and maybe touch a few hearts a long the way.

I've broken out into other genres because I love writing whatever catches my fancy. I also write to entertain. To sweep folks away to another time or world for a little while. Make them smile, laugh, and maybe shed a few tears. We all need to get away for a while sometimes.

4. How does my writing process work?

I get my best writing done on a deadline. Yep, I'm one of those people. It took me a while to figure out my pace and what I wanted to accomplish. Starting this year, I've been writing full-time, so I have a schedule I put together of what I'm writing and when. This helps me keep true series books especially from being released too far apart, which is a mistake I've made in the past. When inspiration strikes, I start asking questions, start listening to characters who start speaking to me. I begin planning and plotting, developing characters before I move onto a rough outline of what's meant to happen when. If I get stuck, I work on dialogue which helps me get unstuck.  I only work on one book at a time, unless I'm editing.  There's usually a lot of coffee and *headdesk* moments involved.

5. Who’s next on the blog hop? Some personal faves and awesome authors whose books I love: Lex ChasePiper Vaughn,  Kim FieldingMichael Rupured, and Sarah Madison

On the Coastal Bend of Texas, a hidden kingdom called Darkmore lies in ruins, and King Sevon Maraté is trapped. Using Sevon as a mouthpiece and a scapegoat, Lord Dominic rules from the shadows. Born of royal verkolai blood and as beautiful as he is lethal, Sevon possesses the ability to part the Veil separating his world from hundreds of others. His gift is his chance to escape, but Dominic refuses to relinquish his tool for power. Dominic forges an ambitious plan to invade the prosperous land of Priagust. Only a select few know the mythic kingdom of shifters exists. Sevon is out of options for his people’s survival, and cooperating with Dominic is his only chance.

On their foray into Priagust, Dominic's men kidnap and interrogate a shifter named Jack. Even under torture, Jack's loyalty to his kind never wavers. But as Jack’s knowledge about Darkmore’s king and its history unsettles Sevon, a curious bond begins to form. Despite Sevon’s mistrust, Jack is determined to tame Sevon’s wild heart and perhaps earn his freedom. As invasion looms, Sevon wonders if trusting Jack will lead him into another trap or if he should forget about chasing the sunrise and remain Dominic's compliant prisoner.

About the Author: Lex Chase once heard Stephen King say in a commercial, “We’re all going to die, I’m just trying to make it a little more interesting.” She knew then she wanted to make the world a little more interesting.

Weaving tales of cinematic, sweeping adventure, epic love—and depending on how she feels that day—Lex sprinkles in high-speed chases, shower scenes, and more explosions than a Hollywood blockbuster. She loves tales of men who kiss as much as they kick ass. She believes if you’re going to going to march into the depths of hell, it better be beside the one you love.

Lex is a pop culture diva and her DVR is constantly backlogged. She wouldn’t last five minutes without technology in the event of the apocalypse and has nightmares about refusing to leave her cats behind. She is incredibly sentimental, to the point that she gets choked up at holiday commercials. But like the lovers driven to extreme measures to get home for the holidays, Lex believes everyone deserves a happy ending.

Lex also has a knack for sarcasm, never takes herself seriously, and has been nicknamed “The Next Alan Moore” by her friends for all the pain and suffering she inflicts on her characters. She is a Damned Yankee hailing from the frozen backwoods of Maine residing in the ’burbs of Northwest Florida where it could be 80F and she’d be a popsicle.

She is grateful and humbled for all the readers. She knows very well she wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them and welcomes feedback.
