aleatha romigJen: It’s the third day of our look at mysteries and thrillers and today we welcome Aleatha Romig to Romancing the Book. Aleatha, will you share a short bio with us?
Aleatha: Aleatha Romig is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who lives in Indiana. Together with her high-school sweetheart and husband of twenty-eight years, they’ve raised three children. Before she became a full-time author, she worked days as a dental hygienist and spent her nights writing. Now, when she’s not imagining mind-blowing twists and turns, she likes to spend her time with her family and friends. Her pastimes include reading and creating heroes/anti-heroes who haunt your dreams!

INSIDIOUS is Aleatha’s seventh novel. It is her first time to delve into the world of erotic thrillers. The Consequences Series, her first series has been categorized as psychological thriller and dark romance. With INSIDIOUS, Aleatha took the twists and turns of CONSEQUENCES and turned up the heat.

CONSEQUENCES, her first novel, was released August 2011, by Xlibris Publishing. Then in October of 2012, Ms. Romig re-released CONSEQUENCES as an indie author. TRUTH, the sequel, was released October 30, 2012, and CONVICTED, the third in the series, was released October 8, 2013. Unexpectedly, the fourth book of the Consequences series came to life with REVEALED: THE MISSING YEARS. It is the fourth full-length novel in the series. It explores the years in CONVICTED that previously were only mentioned, as well as a complete character glossary and timeline. REVEALED was released May 20, 2014.

Jianne Carlo 350x453Jen: It’s the final day of our spotlight on paranormal erotica and we are excited to welcome Jianne Carlo to Romancing the Book.  Jianne, will you share a short bio with us?
Jianne: Award winning author, Jianne Carlo’s motto is simple: Alpha Me Please.

While strong heroines, exotic locations, and cultural differences are her forte, she goes weak in the knees for warriors and alphas. Send her a man with an attitude and she’ll find the right woman to tame him.

Jianne loves hot and spicy food, stomach-plunging park rides, and is kept on her toes by her Viking husband of thirty-five years, and three, handsome grown sons. There’s nothing she likes more than hearing from readers.

It’s day four of our look at paranormal erotica authors.  And like many authors, Afton Locke writes in multiple genres, and it just happens that her newest release isn’t paranormal.  But let’s still maker feel welcome as we learn more about her and her writing.

Thank you for hosting me today. I’m excited to talk about why performers are sexy and Stripper With Spice, a contemporary romance about—you guessed it—a male stripper.

Why are performers sexy?

Think back to adolescence. Chances are you had a crush on a rock star or maybe an actor. The list of my past heartthrobs is pretty long. I’ve even forgotten some of them. Mick Jagger was one.  I listened to his music, read his biography, and even drew a picture of him. This phenomenon isn’t limited to adolescence either. I still find past and current performers incredibly sexy and still get crushes on them.

They even inspire me to write books. Stripper With Spice was inspired by watching male dancers at a romance convention. One in particular caught my eye and made me wonder what if? My next release, Jamaican Temptation, was inspired by a legendary performer of reggae music. I’m also working on a time travel that features a fictional R&B singer from the 1970s.

It’s the first day of our look at parnormal erotica authors.  Jenika Snow is a favorite author of several of the reviewers on staff. So, when we were looking for paranormal erotica authors, we knew we had to ask Jenika to guest with us. Even though her newest release doesn’t fit into the paranormal category, if you’re looking for a paranormal erotica read, you’ll want to be sure to check out her backlist.

Who is Jenika Snow? She is the pseudonym of a mother, wife and nurse. She lives in the too hot northeast with her husband and their two daughters, and was able to have her dream come true in 2013 by writing full-time.

Jenika writes erotic paranormal, contemporary, BDSM, and sci-fi romances. Her publishing houses are Evernight, Siren-Bookstrand, and Total-E-Bound publishing.

Jenika started writing at a very young age. Her first story consisted of a young girl who traveled to an exotic island and found a magical doll. That story has long since disappeared, but others have taken its place.

rachelJen: As many of you may know, Rachel Van Dyken has been a reviewer for Romancing the Book. But she’s also a best selling author and we knew we had to feature her during our look at Young Adult and New Adult books. So to help us kick of this week, let’s welcome Rachel to the blog. Rachel will you share a short bio with us?
Rachel: When I was little–I was forced to be the evil step mother, the prince, the ugly stepsister, the dragon with dragon breath (FOR REAL), if there was a villain, I played it.

So really, we can all blame my sister for forcing me to write my own stories. If she hadn’t made me the wicked witch of the West when I was little–I may not be where I am today.

I write in every genre, but my passion is New Adult and Historical Romance! I’ve decided that the New Adult bad boy is basically the same thing as a regency rake and one day I will, I WILL write a time travel series that brings both worlds together. It will probably only sell one copy, and that one copy will be bought by my Grandma, but still. A girl can dream.

Kally portrait IMG_4937 croppedJen:  It’s the final day of our look into BDSM novels and today’s guest is Kallypso Masters.  Kally, will you share a short bio with us?
Kally: Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees-having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. (After writing as a “hobby” for 30 years, it was the only job she thought she might be good at and needed to be successful at something fast or go in search of another day job.) She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog.

Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group”).  Kally also visits the Fetlife “Rescue Me! discussion group” on occasion, but since she works one-on-one with her BDSM experts now, she doesn’t have to go on FetLife as often as she once did). She hopes to meet you in her future travels whether virtually or in-person! If you meet her face to face, be sure to ask for a Kally’s friend button!

To join the secret Facebook group Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group, please send a friend request to Karla Paxton ( and she will open the door for you. Must be 18 to join.
