Yummy Cowboys--My Interview with Destiny Blaine!
Thanks to Crystal who sent out the word that I was looking for writers to interview, I was able to meet the wonderful Destiny Blaine. She writes about gambling and cowboys. Did I mention cowboys? She was a great sport about dealing with my lack of interview skills. Please pick up her books wherever ebooks are sold!
So without further ado, here is my interview with Destiny-the uncut version:
On a scale of 1-10, how awesome do you think I am? Be honest. You can go higher than 10 if you like. (No excuses about how you don’t know me and stuff like that).
Oh wow, I couldn’t even begin to place a numerical value on infinite perfection. Definitely above a ten—oh yeah, certainly more than ten (Smiles) Plus ten, let’s leave it at that. Ha!
I see from your website you like to gamble. Can you teach me how to bluff?
I don’t know, do you have lying eyes? If you do, then you’re on and if not, hide them. I suggest Ray-Bans. Would I make a great spokesperson for the Ray-Ban brand or what?
Okay, here is the hard hitting question… What is your favorite flower?
Orchids and Tulips—and I can’t pick between the two. Remember, I’m fickle. Tomorrow, it may be purple and black roses. Maybe.
I see you’ve won an award (Predators and Editors 2007 Best Romance Short Story for Casino Player). Can I have it? I want an award!
In a word? No. (Laughs) Well, okay, you can have it—but Jim Sturgess must stop by to pick it up or all bets are off.
Can I have your cover for Beyond the Valley? Not for one of my books. I just want to sleep with it besides my bed.
Okay, you can have Beyond the Valley. After all, I can relate, the cowboy on the front of the cover does look good enough to errr..ride! And why not, frame perfection? But, check out A Matter Among Men too—the cowboy on this cover looks good enough to tie up to a bedpost and yes, keep him there for days and days and—okay, I’ll behave. My teenagers might read this and ground me from blogging (translation—stop me from embarrassing them).
Can you name a character after me? What if I bribe you?
Let’s discuss this because I can and will. How bad do you want to be? Do you want to tie up your hero or be tied up? Battery-operated or Rubbermaid dolls. (Snickers) Are you sure you want to be in the next one because I’m thinking kink for my next story. No bribe necessary—it would be my pleasure to write my friends into a book or short novella!
Your website mentions spice. If you were a spice, which one would you be?
Hmmm—is this a trick question?
I have a Granny who lives in Tennessee. Do you know her?
Sure! Sure! She said to tell you hello and oh yes, she also said to let you know that she is very impressed with the guests you interview on your blog. Imagine. Who would’ve thought?
Okay, this is your turn to add whatever you want. Promote, etc… I’ll be over here trying to find my way ‘beyond the valley’ on Google Maps.
Make sure you join me and author Ann Cory for Just Another Paranormal Monday (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ParanormalMonday/) each Monday from early morning to late at night! We chat it up about all things paranormal and you never know who you might find there! You’re always invited!
Be sure to watch for these titles coming soon! Winning Virgin Love, Winning Virgin Lust, A Matter Among Men, Unspoken Truths and the entire Unspoken Series (Whispers).
Also, can I have a moment or two for a shameless plug or two? Okay, here goes—My first paranormal novel Winning Virgin Blood gained phenomenal reviews so check it out here: Winning Virgin Blood and yes, Beyond the Valley has a to-die-for cowboy so check it out too at Beyond the Valley.
Thanks so much for allowing me to be here with you! And don’t forget, if you find either cowboy on the covers mentioned above, do remind him that I have his rope!
