Come chat with V.L. Locey and R. J Scott ~ #newrelease

 

Cat *Beebobs in singing badly to Soak Up the Sun*

“OOPs! Hi ya’ll” *Blushes taking of my earphones. * ” I am so excited! Today I have not one but two of my favorite authors stopping by.” *Pulls out two chairs on the patio*

“Hi V.L. and R.J. Thanks for dropping by. Can I offer you a glass of Tea, lemonade, wine or a mixed drink?”

V.L. – Generally it would be water but since we’re celebrating a book release, bring on the wine!

R.J. – Tea, I’m not a great drinker… hell, who am I kidding, wine please… no… not a glass… just give me the bottle

Cat “Would you like a grilled veggie sandwich, chicken kabob, beef kabob, burger or something?” *motions to the tray of grill food. *

V.L. – Burger for me.

R.J. – What is a kabob? Is that like chicken on a stick? *Cat nods* I’ll have that please J

Cat “I hope you don’t mind the soundtrack I have running I have a habit of turning on my iPhone while I’m sitting out. This is some country,80’s and of course Adam Levine. Do you have a favorite channel or a playlist and what’s usually on it?”

V.L.  – I can’ work with music or the TV on. I get easily distracted. I DO make up playlists for my characters as part of my process of getting to know them better though.

R.J. – I like a whole load of songs, and I listen to songs as I am writing. They have to be songs I know so that I can almost *tune them out* if that makes any sense… My favorite song of all time is Like A Prayer by Madonna.

Cat “I love sitting on my patio reading and entertaining. What do you like to do in your downtime?”

V.L. – Watch Rangers hockey or any hockey really. I like to read, practice yoga, walk, play video games, and read comic books on my down time. What little there is of it.

R.J. – Reading and watching films mostly sums me up. I am a couch potato who loves to live in the worlds created by the books or the TV. Oh and hockey, all the hockey J

Molly my terrier comes up for some attention, followed by Kitness. Kitness rubs against V.L. and R.J.’s legs, Chloe peeks around and curls up in the sun ignoring them.

“Do you have pets?”

V.L. -A few. =D We have two Jersey steers, chickens, geese, two cats and a dog.

R.J. – Holds breath as I am allergic to cats:

*Cat takes the cats back inside*

O I have a dog, Jack. He’s a black lab and he’s just turned 12. He’s in a couple of my books – Last Marine Standing, and of course, Guarding Morgan J

Cat “For those of us that don’t know you tell us a little about yourself.”

V.L. I’m from the mountains of Pennsylvania and I write mostly MM romance, generally hockey although I do dabble in non-hockey contemporary as well as some MM paranormal. I also have an M/F hockey romance series as well.

RJ – I’m from England, in a town about 40m NW of London and I’ve been writing what seems like forever. From essays to long handed fan fiction at the age of 12 I am all about the writing. I found MM Supernatural fan fiction in 2007 or so, and I haven’t looked back. I write mostly MM, although I have 5 titles that are MF. I create stories with a guaranteed happy ever after and I love writing everything from angst to drama to action to family… you get where I’m going with this.

Cat: What does your writing cave look like? Do you always write in the same place or have a few?

V.L.  – I work at my kitchen room table. Someday I hope to have an office but until we move to a bigger house it’s the table for me.

R.J. – I have an office. It’s all mine. I have a standard desk, and a wall that I have all my posters up on. It’s actually a dining room that I have stolen but in my new house I have a study, a proper grown up study. LOL. Of course I have to move first and it’s likely going to be in August. *HELL*.

Cat “Your both on the top of my favorite authors list and I was happily surprised to see you collaborate. How did you come up with this idea?”

V.L. – Rj was hosting me on her blog one day and during the interview we mentioned how we’d love to write a book together as we were fans of the others works. That led to at least two series in the works. Probably there would be more if Rachel didn’t keep us in line. =D

R.J. We just won’t tell Rachel what we’re up too… bwahahahahah. What Vicki said, it just happened, and it’s been the best co-authoring experience ever. The stories just flow so easily and it’s been good for my solo writing.

Cat: What is your method? Does one of you each do a character or how does collaborating work?”

V.L. – Yep, we each write one character in first person POV.

R.J. – What Vicki said, we also comment and edit each other’s characters, and we talk a lot when we’re working.

Cat. Tell us a little about this series?

V.L.  This series is about the Harrisburg Railers, an expansion team that’s working hard to make its presence felt in the NHL. We’ll be dealing with various players and their romances, of course.

  1. J.

Tell us a about this book.

 

Changing Lines is all about Tennant Rowe, the youngest of three hockey brothers, and always expected to be like his brothers. Much to his brother’s disgust he opts to play for the Railers, even though they are a new team, and not an original six team. He meets Jared, defensive coach, who has his own set of problems, including a teenage son that was born when Jared was only 16 himself. Lust happens pretty quick… but love? That has many obstacles to overcome J

 

How many books will be in this series?

 

V.L. – If we follow through on all the ideas we have about 35,000. I kid! Mostly. We’ don’t have a set limit yet.

R.J. At least 35,001… We’re writing until it doesn’t feel right anymore… which I can’t see happening ever.

Cat: Will you be working together again?

V.L. – Yep! We’re going to do an NA MM collegiate hockey romance spin-off series, about the team from Owatanna U.

R.J. We have so many ideas and Vicki mentioned the NA series that I can’t wait to start.

Do you write things other than Hockey romance?

V.L. – My answer is above

R.J. – Loads of stuff, all the stuff… so many storylines…

Thank you for stopping by and sharing. It’s been fun.

A little about the book(blurb)

 

Can Tennant show Jared that age is just a number, and that love is all that matters?

 

The Rowe Brothers are famous hockey hotshots, but as the youngest of the trio, Tennant has always had to play against his brothers’ reputations. To get out of their shadows, and against their advice, he accepts a trade to the Harrisburg Railers, where he runs into Jared Madsen. Mads is an old family friend and his brother’s one-time teammate. Mads is Tennant’s new coach. And Mads is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.

 

Jared Madsen’s hockey career was cut short by a fault in his heart, but coaching keeps him close to the game. When Ten is traded to the team, his carefully organized world is thrown into chaos. Nine years his junior and his best friend’s brother, he knows Ten is strictly off-limits, but as soon as he sees Ten’s moves, on and off the ice, he knows that his heart could get him into trouble again.

#Coverreveal~~Survivor~~T.M.Smth

 

Survivor

A new stand alone MM Romance

 

 

 

Taylor Langford was only thirteen years old when his world was torn apart, his parents killed during a supposed robbery gone bad. With no other living relatives, the young boy certainly would have wound up another statistic of foster care were it not for the intervention of the Policeman that found Taylor hiding in the crawl space his mother hid him in that fateful night.

Frank Moore went to work for the Dallas Police Department not long after he graduated from the academy. He was still a rookie when he and his partner answered a call in one of the cities more affluent neighborhoods, Devonshire. At first they thought the young boy in the various pictures in the home had been kidnapped until they found him, shaken but alive, in a crawl space in the attic.

Officer Moore recognizes the pain in the kid’s eyes, having lost his own mother when he was just a boy to cancer. He intervenes. Making sure Taylor is placed with a loving foster family and over the years, becomes a permanent fixture in Taylor’s life.

A decade later the case still remains unsolved and the once gangly, uncertain teenager is now a college graduate coming home to the man that helped mold and shape his life, the man he’s loved for as long as he can remember, Frank Moore. But Taylor isn’t the only person returning to Dallas and while Frank is distracted, trying to convince Taylor that infatuation and love are two entirely different things, the past creeps up on them, determined to finish what was started ten years ago.

{NOTE: This story is still a work in progress, final blurb will be crisp, clean and edited}

 

Cover art by Author Chris Ethan of Ethereal Ealain

 

********************************************************************************************************

 

Meet Taylor and Frank! 

 

I’ve been a fan of actor Matthew Daddario for a while and always wanted to write his likeness into a character. I especially fond of Matthew in the role of Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood on the Shadowhunters. When I first started laying out the character Taylor, Matthew continued to pop into my head as Taylor. He’s tall, dark and handsome and the perfect fit for the story and the character. 

 

 

I was a huge Sonny and Will fan until Days lost their mind and completely destroyed the couple. That was where I first saw Brant Daugherty as one of Sonny’s boyfriends. Frank is ten years older than Taylor in the story and I think that Brant and his appearance when considered age wise along side Matthew is the perfect fit. 

 

 

 

 

 

The tentative release date for Survivor is August 1st at this time. Depending on writing, editing and scheduling I’m hoping a little sooner but that will all depend on circumstances.

A chat on the patio ~ A.E. Via Promises 3~ Bounty Hunters #LGBT

Hi ya’ll! today I would like to welcome one of my favorite authors A.E. Via and her newest release Promises Part  three Part of the Bounty Hunter series. I have been waiting it seems forever for this story.  But before we talk about the book, In honor of Independence day I have a few questions for A.E.
Cat-Hi A.E! *pulls out chair on the patio and offers a refreshing drink* Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit. would you like a glass of tea, lemonade or something stronger?
A.E. *already feeling welcome and comfortable, smiles* “I’m going to behave for now and go for the iced tea instead of asking if you have chilled Moscato.”
Cat-I took the liberty to grill us some lunch. I have burgers, hot dogs or Barbecue chicken kabobs.
A.E *such a gracious host* “I’ve had more burgers and hot dogs this weekend than I want to admit to, so Kabobs sound great. Haven’t had’em in while.”
Cat-I hope you didn’t mind doing this on the patio, though it’s pretty hot out.  Do you always write in an office or have other places you like to write?
A .E.*squints up at the bright sun, but smiles politely* “I’m not a fan of the sun. I have very sensitive skin. I burn in an instant, so it’s rare anyone will see me in the daytime. If I go out, it’s after five in the evening. I prefer to write inside, in my office. It’s sweltering in Virginia Beach in the summer – even trying to write under a shaded tree – the heat would be too distracting to me.”
Cat: I love your Bounty Hunters and I especially liked Ford, Brian being ex-military. what was your inspiration for these characters?
A.E. “Most know that I love alpha males. It doesn’t get more badass – in my opinion – than military men, first-responders, law enforcement, etc. In Promises 3 I wanted the men to truly value brotherhood, honor, loyalty and have a desire to protect. I usually choose a profession that would ingrain these qualities into my MC. Making Ford, and Brian military fit well for them. It drives me crazy to read a book where the character hates people, or doesn’t communicate well, or is an extreme introvert; but the author makes them a teacher or a nurse. It makes no sense.”
Cat: How did you come up with the  title of Promises for these books?
A.E. *shakes head and shrugs a bit* “There’s not much  rhyme or reason to my titles, honestly. I figured the troubled men in this series would be making tons of Promises in hopes to reach their HEA.”
Cat Do you have  plans for more books in this series?
A.E. “I’m so excited! Yes! Brian and Sway’s book will be book 4. And that will conclude the series.”
Cat: Now for something a little more personal. How did you spend your Independence Day?
A.E. *laughs loudly* “I’m not very traditional. First thing I did was turn my phone off and slept in. I debated on getting dolled up and going to a barbecue, but I really had no desire to do that. So, my husband and I took our kids to see Transformers at the Cinema Cafe. Dinner and a movie for the fourth.”
Cat: Do you like cooking out in the summer? What is one of your favorite recipes?
A E. “I’m just a little embarrassed to admit this, but I’m not the cook, my husband is. Inside or outside. I don’t even know how to turn on the grill. He’s great at it! I really like grilled food, since it’s so much healthier. When my husband makes Salmon and grilled veggies, it’s my absolute favorite.”
I will let you get back to work. Thanks for stopping by!

“Cathy, it’s always great hanging out and talking with you. Thank you so much for the lunch and tea, sweetheart. Can’t wait to come back and chat some more! I’m working on my first paranormal book that should release next month. A shifter and vampire true mates novel. I would love to hear what you think of this one, Cathy.” 😉

OOH I have been looking for a good Vampire story so I am looking forward to it.

About the Book

A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story.

The hunt is on… and he’s the prey. 

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What he didn’t want was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.

Dana Cadby had grown up labeled a roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks. He’d fought, scrounged, and survived despite a father that constantly told him he couldn’t. Dana pulled himself up by his own boot straps and made a name for himself in the marksman community. He’d been Duke’s bounty watchman for five years. It was his job to ensure their safety, watch their backs. At thirty-three, he was trusted, well respected by his peers, his bosses, his friends… so why couldn’t he earn the same respect from his partner?

Dana knew he was bisexual before he graduated high school. He also knew he was attracted to the huge, 6’3”, SEAL from the moment he and his brother came to join their team. It wasn’t easy for him to tamp down his immediate reaction to Ford’s thick muscles, full beard, and dark eyes. Still, Dana exhibited nothing but professionalism towards him, not wanting to make his ‘straight’ partner uncomfortable. So why did Ford constantly give him hell?

After Dana took back his ex-girlfriend, he’d noticed an intensification in Ford’s bad attitude. One that turned aggressive and downright antagonistic, and Dana was damned if he’d just lay down and take it. He was gonna make that man respect him if it was the last thing he did.

When Duke sends Dana and Ford out to track down their most dangerous bounty yet, they both embrace the fact that they make one hell of a team… but they fight tooth and nail against the powerful intimacy brewing between them.

Beware: If Ford and Dana connect completely, god help the fugitive who’s in the sights of the hunter and his watchman.

 

This story is a part of a series but can stand alone. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has a HEA. 

Disclaimer: This book is about MM romance, albeit there is a very brief MF scene.

How about a little sneak peek?

Ford

Ford finished showering and grooming his beard that Dana seemed to like so much. Who knew the man was so into hair? He’d dated women so much, Ford thought his rough features and hairy body would’ve been a turnoff to him. Ford couldn’t’ve been more wrong. He’d just finished throwing on a pair of blue US NAVY sweats and a white tank top when his doorbell rang. He may not look as gorgeous as Dana, but he was smelling clean and had even dabbed on a little aftershave. It was as much primping as he could manage.

Ford opened the door, and sure enough, there he was, smelling and looking just as fine as always. Dana had obviously showered too, because his hair was still wet and combed back, making it look jet-black. He had on loose jeans with a simple black and gray retro Jimi Hendrix t-shirt with dark leather boots. His body filled out everything beautifully. While Dana wasn’t as big as Ford, he wasn’t small. He had strong arms and legs, which he used to his advantage on the streets. But Ford’s eyes were glued to Dana’s hard abs and solid chest under the snug shirt.

“You can keep staring, but can you do it with me inside? These bags are heavy, babe.” Dana’s voice, even his eyes, were full of edge and amusement.

Fuck. Ford closed his mouth, not sure if he’d drooled on his shirt or not, and stepped aside to let a still-smiling Dana into his home.

“Well, thank you.” Dana kissed him quickly on the mouth on his way past. Not enough. He went into Ford’s kitchen, dropping the three full grocery bags on the counter. Ford looked bewildered. What was his brat up to now? He never told Dana he had to bring his own food.

“What are you doing?” Ford asked, leaning against the counter while he watched Dana maneuver around his kitchen, washing his hands before he began to unload the bags.

“I’m going to make us dinner.” Dana winked. “I’m starving. Did you eat already?”

“No.” Ford pulled out two beers and popped the tops on them. “I was gonna order Chinese or something.”

“Well, no need.”

“You’re going to cook?” Ford said skeptically, still looking oddly around at the scattered ingredients.

“Yes, Ford. I’m going to cook. It’s not that complicated.”

“You’re cooking nachos?”

Dana looked in his cabinets until he found a small pan and put it on the range, dropping a small hunk of ground chuck in before turning back to Ford. “Good grief. I didn’t say I was attempting a leg of lamb with mint jelly. It’s only cheap ground beef with a bunch of crap on top. I’m not making a five-course meal, man.”

Ford shrugged. “I’m a little surprised but, by all means. Go right ahead. I’ll be in here watching TV.”

Dana grabbed Ford’s arm. “Um. What the hell you think this is? All In the Family? You’re not gonna sit on your ass while I cook and call you when dinner’s ready. Get your fine ass in here and help.”

“I don’t cook.” Ford smirked.

“I don’t need you to.” Dana picked up the tomatoes and tossed one at Ford. “Start cutting. You can’t fuck up a tomato. Any way you cut it, we’ll put it on the pile. Same for the lettuce and avocado.”

Ford was still looking baffled when Dana rolled his eyes and moved him to the edge of the counter, put the knife in his hand and started to show him how to dice. It was cute and silly at the same time. Ford knew he could cut up a tomato and shred some lettuce, but Dana’s arms around him while he manipulated Ford’s big hand around the knife were too endearing to put a stop to.

“See. Easy. Just keep cutting like that,” Dana said softly, leaving his arms around Ford’s waist while he did his menial job. Next thing he knew, he felt soft lips against the back of his neck, moving gently across his heated skin. Then Dana’s hands were massaging his chest and abs as they moved lower and lower.

“You’re gonna make me cut my thumb off.” Ford put the knife down and turned in Dana’s arms.

“Sorry. Got distracted,” Dana whispered.

MY REVIEW

This series just gets better and better. I Love how A.E. takes two Alpha men and puts them together and makes it work. I love both Ford and Dana and was glad to see their story. Ford is quiet and strong and big. with A.E.’s descriptions and how she works that into the story I could visualize this big hunk of a man.Dan being six foot isn’t tiny and Ford makes him look small so that really shows me his size. I love a big bear of a man and Ford just did it for me. I loved how they didn’t just fall into bed in the beginning.The fight for their love was as good as the subplots and action.
This is a book three but i think you could read it as a stand alone. There is recurring characters from the other books but all in all I think you can enjoy it on its own.
I cannot wait to see Brian’s story!
If you like Alpha men, Bounty Hunters,ex-military men, action, romance and some hot man-sex you will love this.

Come walk with me. #MFRWauthor #beautifulplaces #garden #blog

 

 

Wonder why I led with this? Other than it being my Grandmother and mother’s favorite song and it brings beautiful memories.  Our topic this week is the Most Beautiful Place I Have Ever Been.

Since I haven’t been a lot of places I chose the one thing we look for when we vacation and that is a botanical garden. My husband got me hooked on them when we took our first vacation together. It  was to Chicago. I never had been so he thought it would be nice for me. We went to museums which I loved, The Zoo. The aquarium and Pier, but of all the places we went there my favorite was the Botanical garden. We walked for hours, sat and watched the birds and butterflies. It was summer and there were lots of flowers blooming. My favorite was the rose gardens.

Another great vacation was St Louis. We saw the arch, Zoo, museums, but again my favorite was the Botanical gardens. One year it featured statues by an artist, the next was some glass features. We walked in and it took my breath away. I choked up with tears of excitement. my hubby still teases me for crying when we walked in. All of this glass hanging around like spheres or sitting around was gorgeous. We always would splurge and eat at the cafe. I would get a garden fresh sandwich made on fresh baked bread and veggies grown there, like squash,mushrooms and eggplant. It was delicious.  It looks like this year they are having glass and Metal art. I wonder if I can get a stop there on the way home from dads.

So give me a botanical garden and I am one happy girl.

Whats the most beautiful place you have ever been?

Get Those Voices Out of My Head #MFRWauthor #MFRW #whyiwrite

Welcome back to the 52weekMFRW bloghop challenge. This is week 26 and we are about halfway now. I feel an accomplishment already by sticking to it and making a habit to blog every Friday. Thus weeks topic is Why I Write.

7 years ago  my disc ruptured and nearly severed my nerve in my hip. I had to have surgery and have the disc removed and my spine fused where it came out as it was so low they felt this was the better option that rods and stuff.  Now I have chronic backpain and that leg is still not the same. It is weak, sometimes it seems to disappear and it limits my mobility and freedom. I also have  asthma and seizures limiting what I can do and now I pretty much can’t go anywhere or do anything alone. Not even go outside to work in my yard.

I was reading paranormal romances and urban fantasies such as Kim Harrison’s Hallows series and Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake as fast as I could get them. I was depressed and seemed like all I did was lay around. One day on the computer I saw a thing about writing books. Something in me clicked. Voices began whispering in my ear.

I began writing on a notepad. Sad thing is my handwriting is barely legible to myself.  I began researching more and more and got into some writing groups and met a writing coach that was starting out and she took me on. I began building  a platform on Facebook and in the meantime jotting down this story in my head. It was an urban fantasy and I have notebooks for 4 stories that are sort of drafted and 2 more partially done in that series alone. Every night in the tub I slipped in my Walkman and let the voices talk to me. Got out and jotted down the story.

I began getting up in the mornings and writing , especially once I found Word so much easier. I would write a while, research a while, read books on writing, outlining, etc. I had a new focus. I had a reason to get up out of bed. I may not have a book out yet but I do have a file full of rough drafts. Another full of Ideas. This year I changed my goals to getting at least one published and changed my goals to self-publishing. The reason for that is another story.

The voices just keep coming from all genres. I cant play favorites so I will write what i feel at the time.

I guess you can say writing saved me.

Why do you write? Let’s go see why the other authors write!
