Author Spotlight ~ Amalie Silver

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this spotlight! Amalie Silver a.k.a AMY is my dear friend and personal shoulder. There are few people in this community that I can turn to and vent and know that I have a safe haven. I’m happy to consider this woman among those. ❤  She was kind enough to send me an ARC of her novel, Word Play. This story is so much fun to read. Completely different from anything else I’ve read lately. Witty, funny, sexy….what else can I say about it??

I’d rather get the ball rolling!! ❤

Synopsis of Word Play:

Word PlaySmut sells.

Michael Rourke learned this the hard way.

Struggling to make ends meet as a mystery writer, he sold his soul – and his pride – as he pedaled sex and lust writing under the pen name Christoph Strong.

No one knew he was the one behind the steamy stories on the bestsellers lists. And he planned to keep it that way.

Until he met her.

Monica Singer, an infamous blogger, is keen to discover the truth of his secret identity.

During a chance meeting at a book convention, Michael and Monica form an instant connection. And soon, an industry rivalry becomes something else entirely.

But as Michael starts to let his guard down, he doesn’t realize that the person he’s learning to trust may be hiding secrets of her own.

Secrets that could ultimately destroy everything.

**Expected release date: Summer of 2014

Let’s get to know

Amalie Silver

TK: Good morning Amalie!! Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to answer some of my questions! Everyone, this is Amalie Silver, one of my dearest friends. Okay, Amalie, I already know you and about you, but why don’t you introduce yourself and tell the peeps a little about yourself! –

AS: Good morning, Ton! Thanks for having me! Well, my name is Amy, but I write under the name Amalie. I’m a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and an artist. I’ve been writing for a few years now, but sat down to write Word Play in January.

TK: Your debut erotic novel, Word Play, is due out this July. Initial buzz has been really great; I know I enjoyed it. What can you tell us about this book?

AS: Buzz has been insanely wonderful! I never dreamed it would be like this. I consider myself very lucky in today’s market that anyone has even heard of the book. Word Play is a bit hard to categorize in a genre. But from my vantage point, I’d call it erotic-romance mixed with humor/satire. The story revolves around two erotica authors who write under pseudonyms. Through the entire book they’re both trying to figure out who the other is. There are also some laugh out loud moments where the authors, bloggers, and readers of our romance community are mocked. But you don’t necessarily need to be savvy in the industry to understand how or why it could be considered ‘funny.’

TK: I’ve posted here on this blog about Word Play before because of how enjoyable it was. This was an unexpected story to come from anyone, and yet, you tell a story that is full of witty banter, sexy moments and hilarity. Where did the idea for Word Play come?

AS: Well, I’m not much of a reader. So when the initial idea popped into my head, an author friend of mine said it was too similar to a book that had hit the NYT best seller’s list in January. I sat back down to the drawing board and came up with a satire revolving around the same idea, only revamped to create a cynical, grouchy, pissy hero. That’s when Michael was born.

TK: Michael Rourke (a.k.a Christoph Strong) is a struggling mystery author who turns to smut slinging to pay the bills. Turns out he’s really good at it!! Then you have Monica Singer, the ball-busting blogger who seems to have it out for Rourke. Which character do you find is more relatable and why?

AS: Michael’s voice came so easy for me. I think it had more to do with the fact that I was coming to terms with my own admission of writing romance, and actually enjoying it. The first 30K flew out of me within a week or less. Then I got to Monica’s chapters and froze. She was not as easy for me to write. I eventually got into her ‘groove,’ and I think I encorporated a lot of myself into her as well. However, I think I’m more Michael than Lauren.

TK: There is definitely a lot of tongue in cheek when it comes to authors, bloggers, agents and fans – and it’s fantastic! The blog posts made me laugh every time. As a writer, what have you found to be the nicest compliment you have received from any of the aforementioned people?

AS: All compliments are surreal. They make my jaw drop every time. But I’d have to say that up until the hype and excitement over Word Play, it would have to be when I received private messages from readers. Under my real name I’ve written a series about a bipolar man in his mid-twenties, and the woman who tries to do everything in her power to help him through it. I was amazed at the amount of people who contacted me saying that they were in the exact same position as the two characters in the story. And how the words I wrote impacted them forever, and have resinated with them to this day. Those are the most powerful words an author can hear.

TK: Okay, I have to ask, because if I don’t, someone else will: are there any parts of your story based on anyone real in the community?

AS: Of course there are. If you’ve been a part of this community for as long as I have, I don’t need to tell you which ones are which. 😉

TK: Claire plays a wonderfully charming transitional character in Word Play. I know Claire. I love Claire! What does Claire mean to you and why did she find a home in this story?

AS:I’m going to cry!

Dammit, too late.

Claire has been with me since before I published my first novel. We met on authonomy.com (which is a website for aspiring authors where you can post the first few chapters of your book and get honest feedback from other authors). When she agreed to read my chapters, I was thrilled. What I wasn’t so thrilled about was her brutal honesty about my work. That right there, is one feisty woman! And I love her for it.

Claire has been the best friend I could’ve ever asked for on this crazy publishing train. She’s seen me through the best of times, the worst of times, and the absolutely manic times. She’s my backbone.; my strength. She’s the first person I go to when I have big news, and one of the most sincere, honest, and beautiful people I’ve ever met. If I had my way she’d be a character in every book written, because a woman like Claire deserves to be a part of everyone’s story.

TK: Have you always wanted to be a writer? And if so, what made you go for it?

AS: I suppose there was always a part of me that was curious about it. But I failed English classes in high school – namely Modern American Literature. O.o So I never thought it would ever be an attainable dream. But after I’d given birth to my now two year-old daughter, something in me flipped. And I started writing and writing and writing. I chose a story that was very close to my heart and that I’d taken with me every since it was experienced.

TK: What do you think is the hardest part of writing a story?

AS: The fucking synopsis. I will never conquer this beast. Ever.

TK: What do you love most about writing?

AS: Taking qualities of people I know and love, and putting them altogether to form one character.

TK: What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment professionally? Personally?

AS: Professionally: Word Play. No doubt. I love this baby of mine. And personally? My son was diagnosed with autism two years ago, and we’ve aggressively pursued additional schooling and help from the school district. This fall he’ll be entering preschool as a fully-funtioning and independent boy. And it makes my heart swell.

TK: If someone asked your advice about writing, what would you say?

AS: You’ve come to the wrong place, my friend. Not that I wouldn’t be willing to help, but I’ve never gone to school for this, and I am by no means an expert! But my motto is: if you love it, do it.

TK: Alright, and now it’s time for the Lighting Round! You Ready?!

AS: Ah, sure?

TK: Scrabble or Words with Friends:

AS: You must ask? Scrabble. Without a doubt. 😉

TK: Who is you Book Inspiration:

AS: The entire literary community of authors, bloggers, and readers. I wrote this book for the diehards.

TK: Favorite Book: Right now?

AS: A tie. Loving Mr. Daniels and Reclaiming the Sand.

TK: Last Book You Read:

Currently reading A Beautiful Distraction.

TK: Michael or Christoph:

AS: Michael

TK: Wine or Beer:

AS: Beer!

TK: Favorite Book Heroine:

AS: Nina from Odium

TK: Favorite Naughty Word:

AS: motherfucker

TK: Holograms or Misfits: Holograms:

AS: why!??

TK: Last thing – If you could say anything to your readers what would it be?

AS: I’m going to cry again, dammit! You are the reason for every word I type. Keep being you. Keep being awesome.

CHAT

Chat

by Theresa Rite

Synopsis:

Contemporary Erotica, Stand-Alone Novel

When Sandy Quinn met Jason Brewer on the first day of second grade, a life-long friendship was born. 

Twenty-six years later, Jason is finally ready to move on from his divorce. His ex-wife leaves behind her Kindle, and he stumbles upon Bestselling Author Carissa Steel’s latest release. After learning that she lives less than an hour from his apartment- and is single- he contacts her on Facebook. As he struggles to flirt over chat, he enlists the help of his best friend.

Sandy has spent three years waiting for her boyfriend, Jack, to finally pop the question. At the same time Jason asks for her help, her world slowly begins to crumble around her. Through her pain, she continues to support her best friend, playing Cyrano to his newest conquest.

As Sandy begins to chat with Jason online, she creates a safe place to explore what neither of the friends thought would ever exist between them. As lines blur and are eventually crossed, they begin to wonder if amazing sex is worth risking a lifetime of friendship.

Could they have always only needed each other?

Been There ~ A Short Story by TK Rapp exclusively for PFMTBB fans and followers (Penny Lisa)

Lisa from Penny for My Thoughts Book Blog got an exclusive story!

You can only see it there!! 😉

Penny For My Thoughts Book Blog

In my short time as a blogger, I have made many meaningful relationships with authors.  One of my first, however, was with TK Rapp.  She is an amazing lovely person who also happens to be a wonderful writer.  Her first book, Being There, is the story of Cass and Drew.  Even though I read it almost a year ago, it is a story that has stayed with me and whose praises I cannot sing about loud enough.  So I am ever so pleased to share this lovely story that TK has written just for us!

But before we get started, let’s get you acquainted with Cass and Drew.

Synopsis 3

When Cass Howard was young, she never dreamed she would have the perfect job, living in New York, with an amazing man by her side. 

That’s a good thing…because none of that ever happened. 

Drew Alexander was the one person who knew…

It’s time to get to know

Theresa Rite

TK – Thank you for stopping by and answering some of my questions. I know you, and love you, but introduce yourself to the rest of the class

RITE – Thank you for inviting me to your party, TK! I love you back, twice as hard, and for a billion reasons. You are SUCH a classy broad. I can only hope to learn from you, wise one.

*bows reverently*

Hi! I’m so happy to meet you all! I’m Theresa Rite, and I write erotic romance. Meaning, there’s all kinds of explicit banging going on. Sometimes, the best relationships are built on a good solid banging. I write about such… bangs. Relationship-building bangs. RBB. I’m down with RBB. (I’m not drinking, I promise.)

TK – Your book, Chat, is due out at the end of this month, what can you tell us about this book?

RITE – Chat is about Sandy and Jason. They met on the first day of second grade, and have been best friends ever since. They tried the relationship thing at one point, but did not want to ruin their perfect friendship.

Now in their thirties, something tragic brings them closer, while something fun gives them that nudge toward what they should have been doing all along.

Each other.

Ha!

TK – I was fortunate enough to read an ARC of Chat and I loved it. It was fun, sweet, witty and of course sexy. What was it about the premise that made you want to write this story?

RITE – Thank you!!!!!

I make book covers for inspiration. Chat is one of several book covers I made and kept for a rainy day. I give these unwritten books snappy, one word titles, and then wait for inspiration to hit.

Chat was inspired by the concept of words being powerful enough to change the course of lives. Words move us in many ways- which is why we all love to read, right?

TK – I loved Jason. I mean, what’s there NOT to like? He’s charming, loyal, cute-as-hell and encourages strength in Sandy. Do you consider him an “alpha” lead or an everyday man?

RITE – Ah, Jason. Jason is a romantic at heart, so when placed in an “alpha” lead, has the ability to shock- and attract- Sandy. Sandy has always been the Type A boss in their friendship, so when she learns that Jason is domineering in bed, she’s unable to get him off of her mind… or her heart.

TK – Sandy goes through quite a bit, as we discover through the telling of this story. How would you describe her character and the changes she goes through?

RITE – Sandy is in an unhealthy relationship with her boyfriend, Jack. The cycle of abuse includes a shiny honeymoon period that bright, intelligent, confident women find themselves waiting around for.

Sandy evolves, recognizing that there are many types of abuse, and just as many stages of dealing with an abusive relationship. Jason helps her realize that she deserves more.

TK – If there was one thing about this story that you would want people to know, what would that be?

RITE – This story is about accepting that you truly deserve what seems too good to be true. Not everything has to be complicated. There are happily ever afters, every single day.

It is what it is, so be in love.

TK – Alright….now on to you – Have you always wanted to be a writer?

RITE – Yes! I wrote my ass off for years. I wrote for competitions in high school, I wrote fan fiction, I wrote shitty poetry, I wrote shittier stories… point being, I wrote until I honed and defined my voice, and my craft. Now, I have to write, just like I have to breathe. Or pee.

TK – What do you think is the hardest part of writing a story?

RITE – Hardest part… finding time. My day J-O-B takes up so much of my time. But, since I have to write (like I have to pee) I make the time.

Second hardest part… 41 K. That 41,000th word is a motherfucker. Once I get over that hump, I’m golden.

TK – What do you love most about writing?

RITE – My imaginary friends! I own them. They are mine. I make them do everything I want them to do. Do I ever want to slap the heroine? Fucking never. I taught that bitch everything she knows. Do I want to throw my Kindle across the room at that cliffhanger? HELL no, I built that cliff with my bare hands. Love triangle, you say? Fuck yeah! And SOMEONE’ S getting pregnant. That’s the way I roll!

(Not in Chat, though. None of that shit happens, lol!)

TK – What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment professionally? Personally?

RITE – Professionally? It’s my day J-O-B. Writing feels too much like fun. Personally? Befriending TK Rapp. Honestly, you are so amazing and I love you from the bottom of my skanky heart.

TK – If someone asked your advice about writing, what would you say?

RITE – Pretend that you are 8-years-old playing make-believe. Have ALL of that fun again. Play like no one is watching. Make your own props. Dress up like a princess.

Ultimately, do it for YOU.

TK – Are you reading anything right now?

RITE – Yes, I’m reading “Filmmaking for Dummies.” My next book includes a sexy director, so it’s research time!

TK – Lighting Round: Ready…Set…GO!

RITE – OH SHIT!

TK – Favorite Book

RITE – OF ALL TIME?? Perfect by Judith Mcnaught. Julie and Zack. GAH! Sigh

TK – Favorite Author

RITE – Judith McNaught, Stephen King, VC Andrews, and TK Rapp (ßBecause she is a cool chick with a hot ass.)

TK – Last Book You Read

RITE – Mine to Steal by TK Rapp! LOVED IT! LOVE TREY! I even love Faith, which isn’t always the case in a book like that where the strong, female lead is competing with the sexy hero… but she is AWESOME!!

TK – Ultimate Book Boyfriend

RITE – Rhett Fucking Butler. YES.

TK – Boxers or Briefs

RITE – Commando!

TK – Favorite Movie

RITE – Clue AND Fools Rush In AND The Wedding Singer. Three way. (As it should be.)

TK – Wine or Beer

RITE – Rum and Coke!

TK – What is Your Favorite Word

RITE – Rake. I love it. Rake rake rake. I could say it all day. It means garden tool AND ungentlemanly tool.

LOVE it.

TK – Liam or Chris

RITE – Chris Hemsworth is number one on my laminated freebie list. Husband has signed an agreement acknowledging that I may tag Thor’s ass with no repercussions.

Which is great, because being married was the ONLY thing standing in my way of banging Chris Hemsworth.

TK – Romy or Michelle 

RITE – I’m so Romy, and I LOVE Michele!! (But… I’m the Mary.)

TK – Text or Chat

RITE – DUH!! Chat baby! (Releasing May 31… shameless plug… shameless plug…)

TK – Who Shot JR?

RITE – It was Miss Scarlett! In the Ballroom! With the Revolver!

TK – Last thing: If you could say anything to your readers what would it be?

RITE – Make your path, don’t find your path. Be happy, wherever you may roam.

… and thank you for loving words as much as I do!!

Thank you TK Rapp I LOVE YOU!!!!

TK – No…Thank YOU!! You’re the best and hopefully my wifey doesn’t see you being all crazy…she’s the jealous type! LOL.

A Different Kind of Teaser Tuesday!

While I’m waiting to get feedback on my rewrites for Mine to Steal, I figured I’d post something completely different. This time, I’m going to post about ARCs I’ve had the honor of reading (or will be reading) and tell you about them. So let’s get started!!

First up, we have Chat by Theresa Rite:

Chat

I loved this book! I had read the premise and since she’s a friend of mine, Theresa let me read an ARC. First off, it was NOT what I was expecting…in a really good way! Sandy and Jason are life-long friends with an unbreakable bond. Every since second grade, they’ve seen each other through life’s bumps and bruises and always made it to the other side. Recently divorced, Jason is ready to move on and find his next romance, and with the help of his best friend, he does exactly that. Sandy (the name makes me what to sing Sandra Dee) and Jason are the friends you love to read about. They have each other’s back, push each other to be better and have that friendship built on witty comebacks and history that make you question everything. Jason…he’s kinda perfect….I really wanted him to forget the other writer and choose me. LOL! Add this one to your TBR!!! ❤

Click HERE for the link to my review of Chat

Next up is Word Play by Amalie Silver:

Word Play

So….the cover alone is enough to make someone want to read this book. But to actually read it….charming, funny, sexy, witty and incredibly clever are a few things that come to mind. Amalie Silver takes the writing community and flips the tables. This satirical take on authors, bloggers, agents, fanatics and everything in between is fabulous! What happens when a best-selling-sexy-erotica author, Christoph Strong meets his match in Monica Singer, the blogger determined to learn his identity? Misunderstandings, games, flirtation and of course sexy-time. (Had to channel Borat for that one!) I can’t wait for everyone to pick this one up because really…you’ll love it! ❤

Click HERE to add Word Play to your TBR

Then there is Point of Redemption by Stacey Lynn:

Point of Redemption

Point of Redemption is SO NEW….the cover hasn’t been revealed yet!! Stacey Lynn is one of my favorite people because she dances, she’s funny and a helluva writer!!! I’m so excited that I have my hands on this upcoming release. What does one do when she’s in a cyber waiting room with her own MS? She starts this book TODAY!!! I know I will love it. HOW do I know this, you might ask? Because I LOVED Point of Return, (Nordic Lords #1). That book made me cry and want more – and now she’s giving it to me! This is Ryker’s story. This is Faith’s story. THIS is a love story. Something tells me this is going to hurt, but call me a masochist because I’m going to read it anyway!! ❤

Click HERE to add Point of Return & Point of Redemption to your TBR

After that is Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey:

Scoring Wilder

Everyone knows I love me some R.S.! She’s my girl, text-buddy, beta-partner and table-partner….we are partner’s a lot!! LOL! If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting her in person, you are missing out because she is one of the most genuine and kind people I have met. Super sweet!! Anyway, my lovely friend sent me this gem to read and I can’t wait. I LOVED With This Heart…it broke mine, many times. And now, Scoring Wilder….are you kidding me?!? MUST read!! Again, I suppose I’m attracted to fabulous covers, and this one definitely makes that list! So soon as I’m finished with Lynn’s book….this one is queued up and ready to go and I’m looking forward to it! ❤

Click HERE to add Scoring Wilder to your TBR…and while you’re there, add With This Heart (because it’s amazing!)

Anyway, these are only a few of the books I have my hands on and I thought I’d share the love. ❤ These are great books and wonderful, amazing, fabulous, kind, fun, witty, sexy, hysterical, awesome, intelligent, angsty, brave – authors who wrote them! Be sure to give them a whirl, if you haven’t already!!

Pocketful of Sunshine…

I believe I have posted this just about everywhere else, except my blog. I guess it’s time then…

As you know, I completed Mine to Steal  a few weeks back. I sent it to some Beta readers who gave me some awesome feedback. (Yes, I realize I overuse the word awesome, but in this case, the adjective is quite fitting.) Using the suggestions they gave me, I tweaked the manuscript and sent it back out to a few others to read, and they loved it! But you know who didn’t love it?

ME!

I love my characters…all except one. Each of them have different characteristics that I love: funny, charming, strong, obnoxious, caring, smart, quirky and one is inappropriate. But something about this story wasn’t clicking for me. 

My husband read my first book, and let me state here: HE IS NOT A READER! But he loved the first book, Being There. I think he loved it in the way that he has to, because I’m his wife. 😉 He was really busy and never read the second book, which didn’t bother me in the least. Honestly, I was so impressed he read ONE. LOL. Well, cut to my working on Mine to Steal. I’ve never written what I call, “Dude” before and when he found out, he insisted on reading, much to my excitement and dismay. (Really…mixed feelings!!) After talking over the premise and then his reading the first 10 chapters, things started to click and he gave me some great suggestions and helped correct things that weren’t clicking at all. Now, I know what I need to do.

This was a VERY long-winded explanation of justifying the reason I have decided to postpone publishing Mine to Steal for a couple of weeks. My editor has been understanding and encouraging and I plan on getting the completed, revised and best version of the MS to her in the next week or two. 

Currently, I’m pushing to release on June 12. If that changes, I’ll definitely post. But be looking out for more teasers and giveaways that are coming soon!!

😎 Pocketful of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield. Clicked random and this came on and made me super happy!
