THE INTERVIEW:

What item, or items, is absolutely necessary to your writing mojo? A favorite pen? Devil horns on a headband?

Cara: My computer. LOL. I write on a laptop, but I have a separate keyboard and wireless mouse that I must have. And I need a notebook to jot things down. In winter, I often wear fingerless gloves because my hands get cold. But I don’t have a special talisman to create a magical mojo.

Cynthia: Nutella! Cynthia Sax runs on this chocolate hazelnut goodness. One of these days, I’ll organize a huge Nutella-sponsored writer-reader world tour. We’ll go on the road, eating Nutella straight out of the jar, talking about books and creating havoc wherever we stop. That’s the dream!

Other than Nutella, I have no rituals. I’ll change anything and everything to coax the muse out of hiding. If a story isn’t working on the screen, I’ll handwrite a few scenes. If the handwriting in blue isn’t working, I’ll write in hot pink. I’ll turn on or off music, listen to country, rock, opera, rap.  

A.M. Griffin: None. I used to play with one of my son’s toys while I wrote. It had a calming effect. But as you know, if I had it then he had to have it. I gave up on that. I do like to sit on my bed and write. I’ve tried to go to other parts of the house to write, but I found that it’s either too noisy or distracting, especially if there are messes to clean.

Lolita: I need music and soda—and that’s about it. Well. Okay. Sometimes, especially when I’m writing late at night, I like to wear my purple house robe. I basically shuffle around the house looking like The Dude—but no white Russians here. :0  I’m strictly a teetotaling soda girl!  (And that’s a Big Lebowski reference, for those not in the know!)

 Blurb:

Grabbed, Book Three

To escape her father’s debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She’d rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything.

The years of constant war haven’t been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love—and bind and adorn with his ropes.

After a brazen Splinter attack, the Shadow Force uncovers secrets about Dizzy’s late mother that entangle her in a web of deceit. To save Venom, her father and an operative named Terror, Dizzy digs deep and risks it all.

Venom refuses to stand idly by while Dizzy’s haunted past threatens the future they’re trying to build. He finally has a reason for living—and he’s not giving her up.

 Blurb:

Loving Dangerously, Book Three

Jess hates aliens. After the invasion that destroyed Earth, the extraterrestrial bastards sold her to a brothel as a sex slave. She may have escaped but the old memories and fears still linger in the dark corners of her mind. Supposedly Sonis is just the place for her—somewhere safe, where she can heal and start fresh. She’s almost hopeful…until she meets Rasha, her new boss.

Rasha, captain of the Sonis Royal Guard, is a warrior through and through. He’s huge, sinfully sexy and could have any woman on Sonis—but the woman he wants is Jess. He’s very much an alien and Jess knows she should hate him or at least be wary, but whenever he’s around, she loses control. She tells herself it’s only sex—amazing, mind-blowing sex like nothing else she’s ever experienced—but there’s something about Rasha that shakes her soul. The feel of his skin against hers, the look in his eyes as he touches her—they make her want to believe it’s possible to find love and begin again.

DJ Cassandra In The House

Continuing with the Cabal of Hotness themed What’s Playing Wednesdays this month, today I have Mistress Hotness herself, Cassandra Carr stopping by with her song choice of the day.

I write sexy stories, so I like to listen to sexy music while I do that. One of my favorite songs ever, particularly for writing, is Insatiable. It’s not blatantly sexual, but it is very sensual. Sure, he appears to be singing about sex and how he can’t get enough of it with his woman, but the way the song flows doesn’t make that obvious. I could seriously listen to it on a loop while I’m writing.

I first heard Insatiable while I had our music collection on “shuffle” one day. Hubs has digitized our entire music collection on our server. (Yes, we have our own server. Yes, we’re geeks.) I immediately sat up and said, “WHAT is this?” The song caught my attention within the first few bars and I listened to the entire thing with rapt attention. I’d never even heard of Darren Hayes, but after hearing that song, I was hooked on it.

I don’t often listen to music while I’m writing because, well, I love my music and it distracts me. But sometimes, like today when my nearly four-year-old daughter is home, it’s either listen to my music or her shows on PBS Kids. I choose my music. I should probably make up some playlists, but usually I just click on whatever strikes my fancy that day. Nearly every time, though, Insatiable is on that list.

MASTER CLASS by Cassandra Carr
Publisher: Loose Id
ePublish date: 12/11/2012
ISBN: 978-1-62300-068-4
Ryan Tomasi feels like a failure. His marriage is officially over; the ink dried on the divorce decree. His friend Jack introduces him to BDSM and he agrees to attend a Halloween party at a club. A submissive approaches him, offering herself, and how can he refuse the kneeling beauty? They do a whirlwind scene and Ryan is addicted—both to dominance and to her.

Lisette Rinaldo is returning to the BDSM club for the first time since ending a bad relationship with her former master. She spots Ryan and is taken by the combination of self-assurance and nervousness the man displays as he takes in his surroundings. And after he gives her an incredible re-introduction to the lifestyle, she knows she needs to see the man again.

Ryan and Lisette explore each other and the lifestyle, but what started out as playtime quickly evolves into something more. The problem? Ryan isn’t ready to get serious again and Lisette doesn’t want to fall in love with a guy who can’t give all of himself to her. Both of them are going to have to break out of the bonds holding them back from happiness.
