Interview & Contest: Lisa Kessler

Jen:  Today we welcome Lisa Kessler to Romancing the Book as her blog tour makes a stop with us.  And please help me thank the RtB review staff for our interview questions.  Lisa, please tell us about Night Walker.
Lisa: Night Walker is the story of a love cut short and a second chance to change their destiny.  The tagline is really the heart of the book.  “He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her…”

Marissa: Where did you come up with the idea, most specifically the death dreams.


Interview & Contest: Toni LoTempio

Jen:  Today we are happy to welcome Toni LoTempio to Romancing the Book as her blog tour makes a stop with us.  Toni, please tell us about Raven’s Quest and where the idea came from.

Toni: Well, Ravens Quest is the sequel to Raven’s Kiss. I wanted to do a novel about a kick ass heroine that had NOTHING to do with vampires, and I came up with the idea of a shape-shifter, bitten by a demon.

I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me–again.

Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects–and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school.

Guest & Contest: Karen Kelley

Hi Everyone!

Thanks so much for having me.

So, how do I research a humorous paranormal erotic romance? I’m still trying to figure out how I wrote it! No, I did not spend a fun weekend in a cabin at Nocona lake with a bunch of other equally crazy writers and get a little tipsy and play the “what if” game—this time. Somehow I came up with this idea all on my own.

I did play the “what if” game, though.

The Changing Face of Research

Good morning! Thank you for having me at Romancing The Book.   I’m very happy to be at your fabulous site today to talk about my latest book A Gentleman Says “I Do”, and I thought it might be fun to tell you how doing research for my books has changed over the years.

I’ve been writing for over twenty years now and while I remember the not so good old days of driving 12 miles to the downtown library so I could check a historical fact, I’m so glad I don’t have to do it anymore.

Burgeoning author Catalina Crisp completes a parody involving twins Iverson and Matson Brentwood’s scandalous arrival in London and publishes it under her father’s name. When the writing hits the town, it’s not long before a darkly handsome man–Lord Iverson Brentwood himself–is at her door, looking for her father with blood in his eyes.
