Author Thursday: Interview with Juliette Cross

Today's guest is fellow Samhain author Juliette Cross, and she's talking about the second book in her The Vessel trilogy, Sealed in Sin. Enjoy!

1. What flavor is your writing?

Rocky Road, for sure.

2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

Oooo, I always love this kind of question. I’d say Henry Cavill for Jude and Lily Collins as Moira.

3. What is your favorite scene in SEALED IN SIN?

Wow, that’s a tough one without revealing spoilers. Let me just say the scenes at “the cottage.” :-)

Author Thursday: Interview with Debra St. John

My guest today is Debra St. John, and she's talking about One Great Night. This sounds like a winner if your catnip is the friends-to-lovers trope, and I completely agree with Debra's "Who says science can't be sexy?!" statement. Because it is!

Enjoy!

1. What flavor is your writing?

My writing is definitely spicy. I don’t shy away from intimate details in my love scenes, but I do stop quite short of erotica. I write fully-consummated love scenes – my full-length novels always have more than one – but don’t get too explicit and graphic with my details. I tend to lean toward the sensual side of things. That said, my books also have a coziness to them. Most are set in small towns and have a ‘country’ flavor. Lots of boots, jeans, cowboy hats, and pick-up trucks for my heroes.

2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

Jason, my hero, would be played by Ryan Kwanten. (He played Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s “True Blood”.) For Chloe, I’d have to get my time machine out (to go back to about the mid-point in the sitcom) and have Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe from FRIENDS) play her. In fact, when I was filling out the Cover Information Sheet for this book, I used those two actors as reference for the cover artist, and she nailed it!

Book Tour Tuesday: Interview with Sophie H. Morgan

My guest today is fellow Samhain author Sophie H. Morgan, and she's talking about her new release Ashes. And now I'm all distracted thinking about Chris Hemsworth with sexy black hair. Is it hot in here? ;-)

Sophie is giving away three phoenix wine charms at the end of her tour, so make sure you enter for your chance to win!

1. What flavor is your writing?

PB&J. Some sweet, some crunch, some nutty bits. And you know when you finish you’ll feel good =)

2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

This is such a hard question – your characters are so clear in your mind that nobody can compare! Ana, she’s such a force of life, it would have to be somebody who’s good at action with a vulnerability that comes across through their eyes, like Kate Beckinsale in the Underworld films or Jennifer Garner from the Alias series.

As for Cade, he needs a real he-man to play him, someone with a beast. Chris Hemsworth if he dyed his hair black would be perfect. Gorgeous, can play arrogance well (Thor, anyone?), sexy enough to sizzle. Yeah…. *drools*

Author Thursday: Interview with Jennifer Stevenson

Today's guest is Jennifer Stevenson, and I'm in love with the name of the series she's talking about today--SLACKER DEMON. So awesome. Really it all sounds fabulous (and she totally had me at Common as a sex demon).

Enjoy! :-)

1. What flavor is your writing?

I’ve been told that my writing is a spicy gingersnap cookie outside with sweet creamy filling inside.

2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

It’s Raining Angels and Demons is book two in the SLACKER DEMONS series. For Mutmumtazarek (Mutt) the fallen demon, I’d pick Henry Cavill for his dark sulkiness. For Jioffriel (Jeff) the fallen angel, it would have to be a young Alex Pettyfer, because he’s so blonde and perfect. Mella should be played by Amanda Seyfried. Keek would be played by Lizzy Caplan or Emma Stone. And for supporting cast: Axl Rose as Baz the big-daddy sex demon, Shahid Kapoor as Kamadeva the Hindu love god, and Compton rapper Common as Veek, the sex demon with a vodou priestess mother and a French aristocrat father.

Author Thursday: Interview with Cynthia Ripley Miller

Today's guest is Cynthia Ripley Miller, and she's talking about her upcoming release On the Edge of Sunrise. I'm very intrigued--it's set in a time period that doesn't get a lot of attention in historical romance but has so much potential for awesome. Plus, as you'll see from the interview, any story that stars Chris Hemsworth and Michelle Trachtenberg in my head is definitely worth reading. ;)

Enjoy!

1. What flavor is your writing?

The combination of a chocolate energy bar with a pinch of cayenne might best describe my novel’s flavor. My story is fast-paced with more dialogue than narrative (although there is enough narrative for imagery and internal dialogue). I like action and conflict to keep the story fresh and some red-hot spice to make the plot tantalizing.

2. If this book were made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

I’d cast Chris Hemsworth (Thor) or Matt Barr (Sleepy Hollow) to play my barbarian hero, Garic. The Italian actress, Catarina Murino (Casino Royale) I think really exemplifies my heroine, Arria, a Roman senator’s daughter. If I had to choose an American actress, I might cast Michelle Trachtenberg (All My Children).
