Heat up your holiday with Melissa Love stories!

Posted on December 4, 2016 at 9:05 PM Comments comments (3)


Melissa Love
Erotic Romance

     Help me welcome this week's guest author, Melissa Love, who is excited to talk with you about her holiday teases. She's got a contest happening, so be sure to get your entries in. You won't want to miss out on a possible win:  a free book plus Warm Vanilla Sugar Gift Set (lotion, oil, & bath salts). Thank you for stopping in. Get comfy and let's get started!

Tonya: Welcome, Melissa. I’m thrilled to have you as a guest this week. Readers love to know more about their authors. Tell us a bit about yourself.

Melissa: I began my love of writing since picking up my first urban fictional book. I wanted to turn my love of reading into writing. In 2001 and 2002 I went the self-publishing route and published 3 books. I knew that self-publishing wasn’t the route I wanted to take anymore, so I continued on to write more manuscripts until I was able to get signed with a major publishing company. Writing has become a way for me to be creative in telling compelling stories and memorable characters of lies and deceits. I am also a member of the Motown Writer Network.

Tonya: Do you have a day job?

Melissa: yes, I work full time at the hospital.

Tonya: Some of us have things we do to get into the writing frame of mind like music, or drinks. Do you have anything special you do to get into the writing mood?

Melissa: Coffee and a lifetime movie network

Tonya: Where do you keep story ideas? I have notes for each of my story idea. Where do they come from?

 
Melissa: I have notes for each of my story ideas. I get my ideas from watching t.v.

Tonya: If you’re self-published, can you tell us a bit about that and how it’s going for you?

Melissa: I did in the beginning because of the rejection. I wrote three self-published book including A Christmas Day Surprise. Doing self-published work is a lot of marketing as with a traditional they have all the outlet and media as with my love on Death Row.

Tonya: Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write? 

 
Melissa: I am a night time writer. It help to be alone so yes I am.

Tonya: What advice would you give to new authors?

Melissa: Make sure you have a good editor.

Tonya: Do you write better when you first have an idea of what your characters look like or do you write, then add character looks?

Melissa: The characters looks have nothing to do with my idea of writing. I focus on the cliffhanger of the story and build around that.

 
Tonya: Interesting. I love that writers have their own way and each is different. What attracts you most about men?

Melissa: Strong, Handsome and protector. When men love, they love hard.

Tonya: We’re dying to hear about your latest book. What can you tell us without spoiling the storyline?

Melissa:
We as women always look for things that are out of place with the men in our lives. If you know your man’s routine like the back of your hand, then all of sudden he starts doing things that are out of the normal, we get suspicious. Our suspicions are always right! This is what is happening with Annetta.

Tonya: This sounds like we could find a bit of revenge here. Where can our readers find you and your books?

Melissa: It’s on Amazon or you can get it free with a purchase of my Christmas Candle melts. When you check out write, in the convo box ‘Tonya blog’.

Tonya: Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?

Melissa: A review is always great, so if they like it, I would love if they could leave a review.

Tonya: What is your favorite night time snack?

Melissa: Fruit, cream cheese and crackers.

Tonya: Do you like toppings on your ice cream?

Melissa: no. like it plain

Tonya: What’s your favorite meal - Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc?

Melissa: Mexican for sure.

Tonya: I love getting to know my guest authors and so do our readers. Melissa, again, thanks for being here this week. Readers, get your entries into the contest below, and then click over to Amazon or Melissa's website to check out her other books!





Blurb: Annetta suspects her husband is having an affair and on all days, Christmas Day. She decides to have her cake and eat it, too. What she discovers this holiday isn't what she was expecting.

New Release by Shae Wilder with Book 1, Trained!

Posted on August 17, 2016 at 12:40 PM Comments comments (0)


Shae Wilder

Romance Author


My guest this week is Shae Wilder, who writes from a mountain in northern Pennsylvania. She is happiest outdoors, but loves to snuggle up with a good book. She enjoys cooking tasty food, drinking fine whiskey, and penning stories that make you blush. I got the opportunity to talk with her recently about the book she just released. Her links are listed at the bottom so please stop by her sites and grab her books!


Tonya: Readers love to know more about their authors. Tell us a bit about yourself.


Shae: I’ve been writing for over a decade. I’m traditionally published in another genre under another name, but all my erotica is indie-published. I live in Pennsylvania and have a loving hubby who is very supportive of my writing. I love to be outdoors, walking in the woods, but also love to sit quietly in a comfy chair and write. That’s not to say that I’ve never binge-watched a whole TV series in a weekend, because I’ve definitely done that. I’m looking at you, The Walking Dead.


Tonya: Do you have a day job?


Shae: I’m lucky enough to be able to focus all my energies on writing. There’s always housework, but that never goes away. Writing is my main passion and profession, so I try to make it come first.


Tonya: Yes, you’re lucky! That’s wonderful. Some of us have things we do to get into the writing frame of mind like music, or drinks. Do you have anything special you do to get into the writing mood?


Shae: If it’s morning, then caffeine is my writing friend. If it’s evening, then there’s usually alcohol somewhere within reach. One thing I always have on hand is candy. I find the sugar burst in the brain really gets the words flowing. Starbursts are my go-to favorites.


Tonya: Mine is dark chocolate. Where do you keep story ideas? Where do they come from?


Shae: I keep ideas in a file on my computer, but if one is really nagging at me, it gets its own file and outline. I wish I had a trick for finding story ideas, but I don’t. Finding story ideas is one of the hardest things for me. Sometimes one will just pop into my head. Other times I’m inspired by a setting or a person. Sometimes I just sit in front of the computer with a blank look on my face wishing there was a story fairy.


Tonya: Let me know if she contacts you and then send her my way! If you’re self-published, can you tell us a bit about that and how it’s going for you?


Shae: I am, and wow, what a learning curve it has been. I didn’t know how much I didn’t know until I started. So far, it’s been going pretty well. I’ve been using KDP and the free days have really helped to get readers interested in my work. I’ve had sales as well, which are always encouraging. Promotion takes up a lot more time than I had anticipated, though. It’s work! But I’ve met some amazing people online, so I’ve enjoyed the process.


Tonya: Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write?


Shae: I’m both. I can write in the morning (well, whenever I get up I consider that morning. Sometimes that comes around noon) or I can write well into the night. I actually think I’m more productive at night. There have been times when I’ve written all day long. Those are good days.


Tonya: Love it when I can just write all day. What advice would you give to new authors?


Shae: First, read a ton in the genre in which you want to write. Get familiar with what works and what doesn’t. Second, don’t be afraid to write a crappy first draft. From there, you have something to polish, which brings me to #3. Revise, revise, revise. Get a critique partner if you can find one who will go over your work with a fresh set of eyes. Consider hiring an editor. #4: Get a great cover, even if that means hiring a designer. #5: Be prepared to promote yourself. The days are gone of writers typing away from a hole somewhere and having their work sail out from obscurity to success. It takes stamina and effort to get your work out there.


Tonya: Professional editing is a must in this business. Do you write better when you first have an idea of what your characters look like or do you write, then add character looks?


Shae: I definitely write better when I have an idea of what my characters look like. They’re more alive that way, and more fleshed-out. Those kinds of characters drive the story forward rather than just take part in it.


Tonya: What attracts you most about men?


Shae: I’m a sucker for a great set of shoulders and a broad muscular chest. And abs. And a nice ass. Okay, there’s not much about men that I don’t like.


Tonya: LOL I hear you! We’re dying to hear about your latest book. What can you tell us without spoiling the storyline?


Shae: My latest is called TRAINED (Sex Academy Book 1). It’s an erotic dystopian about a girl who must attend a school for sex workers under a new governmental regime where women can either do that or become a breeder and have a dozen babies. Think Harry Potter meets Handmaid’s Tale with lots and lots of sex.


Tonya: Where can our readers find you and your books?


Shae: Everything’s on Amazon for now.


Tonya: Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?


Shae: I’m floored by how welcoming and inclusive the erotica community is. I just want to thank readers and other authors. Thank you!


Tonya: Now for a few personal questions. What is your favorite night time snack?


Shae: Doritos, baby. Or anything salty and fried. I usually go for salty over sweet, but ice cream would be my sweet treat.


Tonya: Do you like toppings on your ice cream?


Shae: Sure! Sprinkles, syrup, whipped cream, the more the better. I’m no purist. More is more where ice cream is concerned.


Tonya: What’s your favorite meal - Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc?


Shae: I’d go for Indian every time. I love all the combinations of spices and herbs. And although I’m not a huge bread eater, I love garlic naan. My favorite starch is rice and it goes perfectly with Indian food. I love that I could eat Indian every day and never have the same meal twice. Everything seems to go together and make new flavors. Now I’m hungry!


Tonya: Readers, thank you for stopping in to meet Shae and for adding her to your new author list. Below is an excerpt of TRAIINED so enjoy. Be sure to stop by her site links and check out the buy link you use to help Shae get her books to the top!




Excerpt:

I walked up the aisle toward the front of the room, scanning the line of men. Only then did I notice that one of them was Trent. His eyes widened slightly when my gaze met his, and the faintest of smiles curled up one side of his full mouth. I tore my attention away from him and strode down the line of men. But I was drawn back to Trent. He was a familiar face, and whatever this class had in store, at least familiarity would be on my side. Plus, he looked gorgeous in the suit. His broad shoulders and tapered waist led down to long, muscular legs that showed slightly through the suit fabric. Our eyes met again and he raised one eyebrow as if to dare me. “This one,” I said, pointing to Trent.

New Release by Elodie Parkes - Leave Me Breathless

Posted on July 2, 2016 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (1)
Leave me Breathless

Erotic romance/Romantic erotica

Elodie Parkes

Evernight Publishing



Dishy Seth Callahan relocates one of his business offices to a pretty Louisiana town. He’s lonely and discovers an emptiness inside him he just can’t fill … that is until he starts his house parties, where he fills the hollow with sultry encounters.


Four years later, his house parties attract lonely people looking for sensual comfort from far and wide. 


Rosanna Pyne arrives in town seeking solace after a bad relationship, and her neighbors take her to one of Seth’s parties.


Seth notices her right away. He approaches her, but Rosanna backs away from Seth’s steamy advances. Seth falls into fantasizing in a most erotic way about the lovely Rosanna until one night she makes a move on him.


Rosanna is looking for someone to love her. Is there any chance it might be Seth?

An erotic romance with HEA to make your summer sizzle.



Visiting today we have Seth Callahan from the new Evernight Publishing erotic romance release, Leave me Breathless.


Hi Seth, thanks for coming along to the blog today


Hi, thank you for inviting me. I have to say it’s a little embarrassing seeing my story published, although it’s great too.


What’s embarrassing about it?


Well, without giving too much away, the way I fantasize about Rosanna before we really get together is unusual, I think...


Okay, so, Seth, tell us something about Rosanna, and why you fantasize about her.


She’s pretty, intelligent, she has her own business, designing wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses and stuff. She’s sexy and strong. It took me ages to get her to live with me and agree to marry me... (smiles) that’s maybe a spoiler, I should be quiet. Why do I fantasize about her, well, I guess I fall for her right from the start, but mostly she turns me on ... more than I’ve ever felt before.


What are the house parties, mysteriously referred to in the book blurb?


Well now, they’re parties where people can meet and have sex. I mean ... not necessarily sex per se, but flirt, make out ... there’s only one way to understand and that’s to read the story. (smiles)


A sex club, then? (He stares at me intently for a moment with his gorgeous blue eyes.)


Yeah I guess so. (Now he’s smiling again)


Okay let’s have some quick questions.


What’s your favorite, jeans, or a suit?


I wear suits and jeans. I don’t have a favorite because I have some cool suits for work and some great faded denims that I throw on when I’m not working. It took me a while to get those jeans just the way I like them, ripped and faded. Rosanna especially likes the tear in the upper thigh part.


Do you ever go commando?


(He grins and his eyes twinkle)

Er, yes, sometimes in my favorite jeans, the ones I just described.


Do you like making love with the lights off or on?


Both, either, it depends … Rosanna likes candlelight (He smiles)


Coffee or Cola?


Has to be coffee. Are you offering me a cup … I didn’t get breakfast …


In bed, toys or no toys? (Okay, he’s laughing now.)


The answer’s the same as lights on or off, both depending on the situation. I seriously need coffee now.


What can we expect to read when you fantasize about Rosanna?


Hell, that’s kinda personal, but sex and what I want to do to Rosanna, or with her, mostly. Let’s just say it’s hot as hell male fantasy stuff because by the time we do get together I’m desperate for her. The story has a happy ever after, I mean—I love her.


Thank you for being here today. We’ll get some coffee now ...


Thank you for inviting me. I hope you enjoy Rosanna and my love story.




Read a teaser


She molded her body to his, returning his kiss with so much hunger and passion, Seth moved a hand along her back to cup her ass and ram his aching cock on her stomach. He kissed her toward one side of the room, and with each kiss, she moaned low, clinging to him, her arms pushed up around his neck. He picked her up and jammed her against the wall.


She lifted her legs to circle his hips. The hem of her dress rose and fell away on each side of her hips in a slick of silk.


Seth pressed between her thighs. The warmth from her pussy penetrated his suit pants and made his cock leak. He thrust his hips in long, slow, movements, plundering her mouth with his tongue. His heart pounded and he drifted in a haze of such desperate desire that he broke the stream of kisses to whisper against her lips. “Come with me to a private place. This is killing me. I need to fuck you. I have to fuck you. I want my tongue in your cunt and then my cock pounding into you. I want you coming on me moaning. I want us fucking and coming over and over, until we can’t stand up.”


Rosanna pushed against his chest with her palms and slid her legs to the floor. She slipped her arms around Seth’s waist and leaned her head against his chest.


Her softly voiced words tore into his lust-fogged mind.


“I’ve made a mistake. I don’t think I can do this … not … not right now … when I’ve only just met you.”


Seth stroked her hair and kissed the top of her head. His cock was painfully hard, and disappointment washed his haze of lust away.


“It’s okay, but just so you understand about this club. That’s what we do here in the house parties. We come here so that we can have sex without knowing each other.” He lifted her face tenderly with a hand under her jaw and kissed her softly. “Your friends should have told you that.”


He moved away from her gently so that she wouldn’t think he was angry. He turned and walked away. Nothing had ever felt like the kisses he’d shared with Rosanna. He’d never experienced such intense desire. It wasn’t just the urgent need to fuck and come, but an overwhelming need to kiss every part of her body, to trail his fingers over every inch of her skin, please and tease her, love her until she knew she was loved. Seth sighed despondently at the nature of his desire. This was unexpected. He wove through the room full of people to the front door.

My Way Six - Reads for the Beach!

Posted on June 27, 2016 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (1)

My Way 6

Sex for the Beach



Thank you, David Perlmutter, for allowing us to be a part of your newest anthology of sexy reading! I'm honored to be a part of this with so many other great authors. Tell us a little about the books so readers can better understand what these books are.


Thank you, Tonya. We've had fun putting this together. After the recent publication of MY WAY FOUR – May the Fourth be With You and MY WAY 5 – About Life, I would like to welcome you to the next instalment of my MY WAY series and this one is HOT, I mean really HOT.


I am delighted to be able to TEASE and PLEASE you with some of the best indie authors I know who write erotic literature.


I have eleven story tellers who made this book rather HARD in the editing and planning stages. My editor/co-author and I have had the PLEASURE of casting our eyes over each and every one of the eleven STEAMY chapters. Yes, eleven of the most TANTALISING written words that we have ever read or CUM across. The process of editing hasn’t been an easy one as we do edit together, and for one reason or another, as you will read, we were rather SEDUCED by the writing and many times ended up quite distracted and putting our laptops down.


I must warn you before you read this HOT BED of erotica, that no one under the age of 18 must further proceed, as the contents may offend.


So let’s begin this erotica ORGY and let’s get DOWN and DIRTY with the authors featured within, all ready and waiting to SEDUCE you.

Prayers Go Out to the LGBTQ Community

Posted on June 12, 2016 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (1)

Prayers For the LGBTQ Community


      No matter how much gun control there is or will be, those intent on killing others because they're unhappy and angry, will never change. They will find guns no matter what, yet we may be unprotected against them. What happens inside the head of a killer when they're so intent on snuffing out the life of another human being? I don't understand why some think they stand above others, but they're also the ones who want to be in control and that their world would be better. All of us are different and all need to understand that. No one way of life is better than another. Live your own life and leave others alone. If you're not happy, YOU need fixing, not those around you.


     Perhaps someone out there assumes those of us who dabble in the BDSM world need to die? OMG! How ridiculous to even consider someone needs to die because you might disagree with them and their way of life! How senseless was the death of Christina Grimmie? Because of a jealous fan who thought no one should enjoy her music if he couldn't have her to himself? When will this non-sense end?


     Prayers go out all over the world yet again for senseless killings, mine included. Yet, the worst is already done. Please join me in hoping that our prayers can somehow heal the world to be a better place to live and not be afraid to live each day the way we choose.....

Meet Lady Ciara from New Horizons, Book 2

Posted on May 23, 2016 at 3:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Meet Lady Ciara

I'm glad you're curious to know more about this woman in book two. She's a director, movie producer, BDSM Domme, and is always looking for new talent for her movies. She has a past with the photographer, Daniel, in this series and knows he can spot talent in his models. He's sent her several of the girls who work for her and they make good money. The employer benefits are why they continue working for her. Lady Ciara has taken time from her busy production schedule to sit down for a chat with us. Get yourself a drink and join us.

Lady C:  Tonya, thank you for inviting me this week to let the world know what I do. I love my job and the girls that Daniel sends in my direction. Many of them are still camera shy when they arrive at my studio and that's when I introduce them to my stable of beautiful women. I've been fortunate in that I'm able to watch as they grow into their own skin, become more confident in their moves on and off camera.

Tonya:  Daniel tells me you have a knack for advancing many of your pretty faces to become popular with other directors in the film industry. Can you let us in on the process you use to help these women gain confidence in front of the camera?

Lady C:  So many young women these days are self-conscious of their body image and that's such a shame. Some have been led to believe they aren't pretty or are too fat. Not all of us weigh 90 pounds and that's okay. I hear from several viewers that they love the curvy models better than the boney ones. Myself, I love them all and am not afraid to show them a little love *her tongue wets her upper lip* if you know what I mean.

Tonya:  I think I understand. You and Daniel have a past between you. Did it start out personal or is it always professional for you?


Lady C:  Daniel caught my eyes years ago when he came to do an ad shoot for a magazine. He's got a magnetism that just attracts women and I'm no exception. He played hard to get and wanted to be in control from the start. Well...I quickly changed his mind in that regard. Some people just need a little push to find out if they're submissive or not. He found out many aspects of his personality he'd been hiding for too long. I'm a professional in that area and he still comes around once in a while. He misses the way I love him. (her wink tells us much more than that)


Tonya:  So Daniel is into bondage a little, I take it. That's probably why he does several of his shoots for those types of clothing magazines.


Lady C:  Exactly. My movies are also along those lines which is why he sends me some of his top models. He sees something in them that others don't have, like the way they connect with a camera and other women in a shoot with them. I like my girls to all get along and sometimes...they get along too well. When that happens, they have to share with me. I love my girls and they also love bondage or they wouldn't be in my movies.


Tonya:  Can you share with us how you help the shy women become more out going?


Lady C:  Is the world really ready to hear what happens during my training sessions? *she raises a brow in question* I love men and women. Some need to be shown that they are submissive, which in turn, brings out their confidence as well as teaching them obedience. But don't get wrong idea of bondage. Before a submissive agrees to anything, they first have to agree to what will happen to them during a session. This actually puts control with the submissive...controlling what will be done to them to teach them how to let themselves experience pleasure. Some can't do that you know. They refuse to allow themselves full emotional release because then they feel vulnerable, but you didn't come here to have a session....or did you, Tonya? I'd love to get you in front of a camera during a session...mmmmm.


Tonya:  *squirming in my arm chair*  We can chat later on that, I promise. So your sessions are erotic, if I'm hearing you correctly. Do your girls also participate in these sessions?


Lady C: That depends on how shy the newbie is. Sometimes I just let my girls introduce themselves to the newbies at a party I have at my home. It's more comfortable there and we can sit by the pool or in the hot tub. I hope your readers will enjoy meeting the girls in New Horizons. Sandi and Kiera are beautiful, but are still a bit on the shy side. *wink* I'll fix that, in time.


Tonya: Readers, there you have it. A little back story to make you want more. Stay tuned for the release of New Horizons, book two in 'Through His Lens' series. I'll be re-releasing book one soon as my publisher is going out of business and has turned the rights back over to all authors so we can self-publish or place the books with new publishers. I will be self-publishing both of these and working on book three.....Common Threads. My newsletter subscribers will be the first to know what's happening. Enjoy!

Searching For Acceptance?

Posted on May 15, 2016 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Searching for Acceptance?


We all have to be comfortable in our own skin or we will forever search for acceptance from others. Love yourself first if you want others to love you. By that I mean, be good to yourself and know that you deserve to be happy. Don't depend on others for your happiness or you may wait a long time. There are so many ways to make yourself happy and I'm not referring to masturbation! Okay, maybe that's a start. That is loving yourself first, yes. Are you happy with yourself? Why or why not? You deserve to be happy so treat yourself to a walk along the river-walk or sit in the park to enjoy listening to the birds, the wind in the trees and those walking by hand in hand. We don't need someone else to be happy and you'll not find it if you aren't happy first.    


Change your thinking mentally and talk nice to yourself. Quit the bad self-talk, look in the mirror and tell yourself how beautiful you are with that gorgeous smile. You make others happy each time you smile at them. Try it...if they don't smile back, then they are not happy with themselves. Know now that YOU don't want to be in that category any longer. Stand up straight, hold your head high and know you are somebody's best friend because of WHO you


When good things come your way, know you deserve them. This leads to the next step...we attract to us what we think about! Think on that for a minute! Change your thoughts and you change your life. I'm a firm believer in that, even though sometimes, bad things are going to happen that are beyond our control. Move on and don't let those times weigh you down.


Do others accept you for who you are? No? Their loss. They aren't worth your time. Find people who think like you do...who love themselves first because those are the happy people. I hope this has moved you forward one step today. Stay happy and know love is out there, be it from friends or a soul mate! Those are the things I write about because I believe in love and love myself first. Thank you for stopping by. Please book mark my page and come back often.
