Guest Diva Nicole Dennis' Interview

Help me welcome guest Diva, Nicole Dennis, today!

Why did you start writing?
Hehehe…. I started when I was a little girl, creating stories for my Barbies or paper dolls. I created more throughout school, even started a small writing group in college to create a column for fiction in our newspaper. It took a couple of years after college and a kick-start from NaNoWriMo to get me going.
Now, thanks to all the crazy characters and ideas in my head, I can't stop.

What has been your biggest writing influence - book or another author?
The biggest influence has been reading Nora Roberts and Sherrilyn Kenyon. I love and adore their characters, the world-building, and the stories. I collect both of them and am eager for anything new from either one. From Nora, I learned how to create a family series, build a town around the series, and interweave them. From Sherrilyn, I adore the world-building and again how she weaves the various stories throughout all the series. Plus, their heroes are just yummy – umm.. Roarke!

What are you writing right now? Is it part of a series?
At the moment, I'm working on the Southern Charm series. It's a 7-book series of M/M contemporary erotica set in the Florida Panhandle. There are some cliffhangers, unanswered questions, and plot threads I leave open in the first few books, but everything will be answered and wrapped in the last books. I promise.
The current book is #4 in the series – When in Bloom – and is about a floral shop owner (Jude) and the doctor (Elliott) who treated Samuel in book #1. After dealing with some crap, Elliott makes a change in his life and career and arrives in Shore Breeze and the clinic. Handling some personal and health issues, Jude is the first to meet him during a storm and around town.

Do you write full time?
No, but I wish I could.


·       Last book you read?   Andrew Grey – Love Comes Home
·       Cake or pie?  Pie – My mom's pumpkin pie is the best!
·       Favorite vacation spot?   North Carolina's Outer Banks – quiet, soothing, soft sand and clear blue ocean.
·       Hairy chest or smooth?  A bit of a mix
·       Stand alone or series?  Series.
·       Novella or novel?   Either – I read all.
·       Real or pen name?    Pen name – my real last name is crazy to pronounce
·       Vanilla or ANY another flavor?  Mango sorbet!
·       Tattoo or piercing?  Tattoo
·       Once Upon A Time or The End?   Once Upon a Time (it can always lead to more yummy stuff)

Look for Nicole's newest Southern Charm book, By The Numbers.

By the Numbers - Southern Charm 2

M/M Contemporary Romance
Available: May 2014
Totally Bound

With permission to being construction and repairs on The Southern Charm, Sullivan 'Sully' Tarleton can't wait to start bringing the old hotel back to new life. He and his crew jump on the tear-down until he overhears his friends talking about picking up the accountant at the airport. Volunteering since he needs to head that way, he doesn't know the changes this accountant will bring to his life.

Suffering from severe OCD and additional issues after growing up with a hoarder parent, Chandler Braddock prefers to keep his surroundings neat, perfect, organized, and minimal. A reason he enjoys working with numbers. They always balance out, match up to others, and are able to be tracked. Often refusing to leave his New York office, he gives in when his best friend, Samuel, requests his presence in Florida.

But what will happen when he's met by a sexy, but very messy carpenter? And will he be able to give up his orderly life for such a man?

Want to know more? You can find it on:

About Nicole Dennis: 

You can find me on Facebook (I sneak in my lil netbook to my office). You can search and friend me and join my page. I'm on Goodreads. I also have a blog/website – but I'm not the best at keeping them up-to-date. (blushes) I'm trying. Honest!

I love hearing from readers and interacting. In October, I'll be at GRL as a Reader, but you can still 'attack' me for autographs and info.

AM Griffin's Dangerously His is HERE!!!!!!!

Dangerously His is Here!!! Guest Diva AM Griffin is here to share an excerpt with all of our decadent followers...
Want a tease to whet your appetite? Then look no further!!!

Excerpt #3

The sound of someone calling her name pulled Saia from her dream. Opening her eyes, she scanned the empty room.
“Saia, are you up?”
She squinted through the darkness. The suns were still down. The night was quiet and still.
Who’s in my room? “Who’s there?” she called out.
“Saia. Saia! Wake up.”
JB? Is he here?
“Saia,” he called again.
Communication link.
She followed the noise to her com-link sitting on the small table by her bed. She held down the button so JB could hear her when she spoke. “Hello?”
She heard him let out a long sigh. “Hi.”
“Are you up?”
“I am now.”
“Oh, sorry. You were probably asleep. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Nice going, JB.”
She lay back and cradled the com-link in her hand. “No harm done. Why aren’t you asleep?”
“I tried, but I can’t.”
“Why not? If you’re having trouble sleeping you should try shikor. It has calming properties in it.”
“It’s not that. I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I don’t want to take anything that would make me stop thinking about you—ever.” His voice slurred with his words.
He was drunk, but she didn’t care. She couldn’t control the grin that stretched across her face. Or the way her heart fluttered at the very thought of him thinking about her. “You were thinking of me?”
“I was. I mean, I am. Were you thinking of me?”
“Really? I thought you would have been thinking about the females who were hanging on you at dinner.”
She remembered seeing the two humans fawning all over him. To his credit, she did see him trying to push them away. But as determined as they were, they didn’t seem to want to budge. She tried not to pay attention but couldn’t pull her eyes away.
“Those weren’t…I mean…I used to hang out with them, but that was before I met you.”
“And then what?”
“And then I haven’t been able to think about anyone else since.”
“I admit that I was thinking of you before I fell asleep.” She chewed on her bottom lip. Why had she confessed that?
“You were?” His voice was filled with hope and joy.
That’s why. “Yes.” She pulled a pillow over her face to muffle the happy yell that erupted from her.
“Meet me in the common room.”
She pulled the pillow away. “No! I can’t do that.”
“Why not?”
“My brother might find out.”
“Oh yeah, right. Let me come to your room then.”
“Absolutely not. That would be even worse.”
“I’ll be like a stealth ninja. No one would even know that I’m there.”
“I don’t know what a ninja is, but I highly doubt that even that would elude the detection of Ship.”
“I forgot about him. How about the royal gardens? Meet me there.”
“He can go outside as well, although he really doesn’t like to.”
JB hiccupped. “But I want—I have to see you.”
“Well…he doesn’t go outdoors unless he has a reason. I’m sure he has better things to do than follow me around. If he does show up, you’d be able to see him.”
Although Ship’s species was thought to be invisible to the naked eye, it was discovered when Eva came to Sonis that humans could see him. He appeared as a purple haze to Eva. At first she’d thought there was something wrong with her eyesight. It had taken a while for her to realize it was Ship she was looking at and not some anomaly.
“Why do you want to meet with me so badly?”
“I just want to talk with you.”
“We are talking.”
“Okay, I admit. I want to feel you again.”
“JB!” Heat crept across her cheeks as she said his name.
“No, not that way. Your skin felt so soft, so perfect. I want to see if it was real or if I dreamt it.”
Saia sighed. “I can’t meet you anywhere this late. It’s not proper.”
“I understand. I’m drunk and I’m being too forward.”
She put a hand over her eyes. “But I can meet with you tomorrow after I visit Jess and Rasha’s new dwelling.” Oh Ancients.
“Yes!” She heard his yell peal through the link.
She grabbed and held the pillow tight to her chest. “Bye, JB. I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Goodnight, beautiful Saia.”

Dangerously His
A.M. Griffin

Loving Dangerously, Book Four
Justin “JB” Blake has never met a woman he couldn’t bed—or one he wants to keep. That changes the second he lays eyes on Princess Saia Xochis. The beautiful alien makes his body burn and his heart ache. She will be his. All JB has to do is risk life and limb at the hands of her abusive father, her protective brother, and her warmongering intended mate.
The possibilities of death and dismemberment have never stopped him before.
Inside Scoop:This book has a small taste of female/female fun—as well as scenes of abuse that are decidedly not fun.

The cover story, featuring John Quinlan

The weekend is coming up and you're dying for something new to read so you head to the bookstore or supermarket,  wander through the bookshelves looking, seeking something... 

What encourages you to move forward? To pick up that one book? What is it about it that has so drawn your attention? Why did it snag your attention over all the others? It couldn't possibly be the blurb, as you haven't even picked up the book yet, let alone turned it over and read it. So, what is it?

Clearly, the most important factor in your reading decision is usually the Author's writing and how much you enjoy their work, but what of the Author who is as of yet unknown to you? The Author who's work you haven't yet read, or even heard of?

This is where appeal comes into play - and the tremendous work that goes on behind the scenes to attract you, the reader. Publishers and Authors work hard to influence and earn your decision, your business. PICK ME! PICK ME!

As an Author, it is our job to draw you in and keep you reading by the quality and distinction of our story and writing. However, Publishers have the obligation of attracting your attention, encouraging you to pick up their Author's book and feel it within your hand, where hopefully you will read the blurb and decide the story sounds compelling, purchasing it. This is their entire focus when it comes to the cover. After all, as you are browsing, all you see are covers, your eyes absorbing the images and your brain drawing a conclusion - appealing or not - if it's is, you might just pick it up and read further. If it's not, you move on. 

There is an entire industry formed around this one factor - offering appealing designs and attractive images to ensnare your eye so you will pick up the book. 

I believe that it is important to feature this particular aspect of our profession, since their input so impacts our success. In future blog postings, as well as the Guest Diva Author's I will continue to feature, you will also see some of the people that work hard behind the scenes - publishers, editors, cover models, cover designers and artists, etc. These people work very hard with one goal in mind - to draw the reader - supporting the Author along their road to success.

Today, my first feature will highlight the romance cover model.

I am thrilled to introduce a popular romance cover model that many of you may already know, you may have seen his work, or recently met him at Romance Times (RT) Convention in New Orleans, (where RT's founder, Kathryn Falk invited him to appear as an official RT Convention Cover Model), or he may be new to your eyes. Either way, you're in for a treat...I know I was.

John Quinlan

I recently spoke with John from his home in Boston, Massachusetts after thinking long and hard on questions that you, the reader, may want to know. Yes, I thought long and hard. =)

He is a surprisingly multi-faceted man, his career spanning and growing throughout the years,  encompassing a career in wrestling to modeling. John's History Through it all, his focus has been, not surprisingly, on fitness and honing his body to perfection.

As you read on and learn more about John, you will see how it was an almost foregone conclusion that his career brought him here today, to us.

Q: What do you enjoy most about being a romance cover model?
A: The amazing people I have been privileged to meet all over the globe. I never imagined, at the time when I began as a romance cover model, I would receive so many mails of support world wide. I am truly humbled by the entire experience.

Q: How did you first become a romance cover model?
A: People often told me I had the look for it and I never took them seriously, until one day I gave in and did a shoot with a romance theme to it. Being bald and tattooed, I bring a unique look to the table of romance, which is a refreshing new look that I think embodies men of the new millennium. I am happy to say it has been success, which has landed me here, talking with you today Shelbie.

Q: Do you have a favorite character to model as? (supernatural, businessman, warrior, etc.)
A: I do respect Fredrik Ljungberg very much, not only as an athlete, but as a model as well. Many have said I remind them of him (as we are both bald). LOL! But to be honest, I just try and be John Quinlan and be true to myself and respectful of others. Good things happen to good people, so why not be a nice guy I say.

Q: Have you ever been shocked by a cover shot request? If so, what? 
A: Not really. It's romance and we all know how the business is. I have been requested to be on covers completely naked and they told my that my privates would be tastefully covered. I was like, "OK?" Yeah, those never materialized to say the least, but you, as the reader, get my point I think. Anything goes in romance. (That it does John!)

Q: Speaking of that, do you prefer modeling sans clothing, or dressed better?
A: Both, as being a successful model requires being flexible, being able to do shoots in multiple genres. Each genre is unique and brings its own individual challenges with it, which is exciting.  Switching things up all the time keeps everything new and refreshing.

Q: What do you enjoy doing in your time off? Any favorite hobbies?
A: I have three beautiful children, which I enjoy spending time with. I love doing things that are stress-free and simple, as I cherish these moments because time moves so fast. My youngest is my little girl Mia, who is two, and it can be something as simple as just sitting with her while she watches a show on TV. It is those quality moments I will remember forever when they are all grown up.

Q: What do you think is the most widely held misconception about you?
A: That I am a bad guy, a punk with an attitude. I think society as a whole is getting better, but there are still those out there that "judge a book by its cover," so to speak. They see me as a bald guy with tattoos (I currently have twenty-sever of them and am the most tattooed male romance cover model in the world) and assume I am a trouble maker. So many people have told me that before they met me they were a bit unsure about what I was going to be like. Those same people all agree I was one of the nicest people, after they had the chance to actually sit down and talk with me. (I hear you John! I hear you.)

Q: If someone wanted to be a romance cover model, what would you advise of them?
A: Go for it! Reach out to those in the industry and follow your dream. It worked for me.

Q: Do you have a favorite cover shoot? If so, why?
A: There are so many, but I did a shoot last year with Teresa Yeh, who is the exclusive photographer for Claudia McKinney of Phatpuppy Art in California. I am an official model with Phatpuppy Art and she puts out some of the very best cover pieces available for purchase in the world. My favorite was a piece called "Chain Break." I am coming out of the water during a lighting storm, breaking the chains that are tied to me. It is a very dramatic piece and one of the best anyone has ever done of me to date. (I have to agree!) -Look below for more photos!

Q: Can you share with us what you find most attractive in a woman? What turns you ON? What turns you OFF?
A: (laughs) I love self-confidence. A woman that is confident and carries herself well is a huge turn-on for me. I love body jewelry, not gonna lie. I love anklets, bracelets and chains! The biggest turn-off is a woman who is all about herself. One who only talks about herself because she is insecure and wants to keep hearing from others around her how great she is. One of those who is always like, "look at me, look at me." I'm all set, next!

Q:What do you think of the fact that mostly women readers are looking at your cover picture imagining you as the character they are reading in the novel?
A: I am truly honored and humbled when readers do this. I always aim to please the readers and I go above and beyond to get them what they want, as it is really a symbiotic relationship between the readers, authors and the cover models in this business. (Agreed!) We need all of you just as much as you need us. I always do my best for the readers and authors alike, because I understand that if it weren't for the both of you, models like me would be nothing and have no place to showcase our talents to the world. (Well said John!)

Q: Does anything embarrass you? 
A: I have done Playgirl related shoots numerous times and once a model has bared all, nothing else really embarrasses you anymore. I was nominated as Playgirl's Hunk of the Month for June 2013, which was quite an honor for me as a model. The photos were always classy and tasteful, all good.

Q: What is the most unusual request you received from a fan?
A: Videos of myself doing not so nice things. (laughs) I was like, "Sorry, but no."

Q: What do you want people to most know about John Quinlan?
A: I have a heart of gold and that I am so very appreciative to any Author who believes in me enough to put my image on his or her book cover.

A big thank you to John Quinlan for taking the time to visit with me and The Decadent Divas! If cover models around the world are anything like John Quinlan, we are all in for a treat. Their impact is huge and cannot be minimized. So, in the future, look for additional popular cover models to grace our blog pages, bringing their unrivaled beauty with them.

John's image may be a visual treat, your eyes clinging to each dip, curve and valley of carved muscle, but as I have learned in the last few hours, he is so much more than that - Beneath the muscle and tattoos, the heart of a lion beats - strong, sure and kind. Much love John! =)

I hope you've enjoyed today's post and meeting another person that makes the big circle complete in the world of romance. Below, for your convenience, I have placed all of John Quinlan's contact information.

In ending, remember to keep an eye out, right here on The Decadent Divas Blog! We have much more to come in the future, including two Guest Diva Authors I have scheduled to make an appearance in June -

W00T! =)
John & TJ MacKay at The Saints & Sinners Ball
(John won for Best Dark Fantasy - Vampire)

Best wishes to each of you - have a wonderful week!

Divas in the Big Easy

RT 2014

Hello Lovelies,

I am blogging today about my trip to New Orleans where I attended the Romantic Times Convention just last week.  What can I say, it was a blast. I met so many wonderful authors and fans. Ate a lot of great food. Went to some really good workshops, networked, and participated in Sexy Confession in the Dark with my Diva Covert in Crime, Ms. Jennifer Kacey.  Unfortunately, not all of the Divas were able to attend this years conference, so we decided to take a group shot with a photo of them so that they could attend with us in spirit.  We missed you ladies...

The conference was huge, and I couldn't believe how many people attended this year. It was crazy madness. New Orleans is a magical city though and I have to admit, I truly fell in love with the place. The architecture, history and atmosphere seems to draw you in. I took so many pictures, I can't post them all but I thought I'd share a few from my week in the Big Easy. See below:

You don't even want to know what we ladies had been up too. What happens in New Orleans stays in New Orleans or is that Las Vegas. Hmmm....

Carnival with Elloras Cave

Book Signing Day

Cafe au lait and Beignets, Oh yeah!!!

Yes, you can rent a haunted house if you choose in the Big Easy...

E. L. James and Diva Erin Simone

Diva Jennifer Kacey getting frisky with Mr. Cricket

Lara Adrian with Diva Erin Simone

Sinner's & Saints Party

Diva Anna, Erin and Jenn doing a Selfie....

Two of my most favorite women in the world. Eden Bradley and Jennifer Kacey...

Sigh, but as you know all good things must come to an end. We had such a great time though, and it was really hard to say goodbye to all our friends. Now the Divas are getting ready for Romanticon 2014 in October which I'm sure as always will be a lot of fun.  

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. With that said, I want to take a moment to thank our troops and all the men and woman in the military, including my son Kyle for their service to our Country.  Happy Memorial  Day everyone.

Decadently Yours, Diva Erin Simone
