Please welcome our author of the month, Amelia. She's talking about turn ons and getting her kink on! ;)
What’s your name and where do you come from?
I am Amelia James, and I come from a repressed and conservative background. I grew up in a fundamental family and community. My mom didn't allow me to listen to rock music, and she took my romance novels away from me. But since I've moved away from home, I've learned to think for myself and let out my inner bad girl.
Tell us a bit about your latest release.
My latest release is the omnibus edition of my erotic ménage romance series, The Twisted Mosaic. It includes all three books, Her Twisted Pleasures, Their Twisted Love, His Twisted Choice, and three bonus stories.
How do you go about creating the perfect "Swoon" worthy man?
All of my heroes have been inspired by real-life men or fictional characters, but my favourite bad boy, Alex Sheridan from The Twisted Mosaic, was inspired by a villain. I took his conflicted nature and played 'What if?' That led me to his particular perversions. He's not perfect at all, and that's why he's so appealing.
What’s your biggest turn on?
Men with long hair. Both Jack and Will have long hair. I love getting tangled in it.
What’s your greatest weakness?
Men with long hair. ;) Real potato chips and full-fat dip. Melted cheese. Bacon. Four-inch heels. I have no willpower.
How do you decide how hot or not your book is going to be?
It depends how kinky my characters are. Talia, Alex, and Will have twisted perversions, so their books are highly erotic. All my books are hot. The romance novel I'm currently writing will include an MFM scene because my heroine told me she wanted one. I write what my characters tell me.
Is the stuff you write about from experience or mostly imagination?
I plead the 5th. Um… a little bit of both. I've always had an active imagination. My 3rd grade teacher wrote 'tends to daydream' on my report card. I missed out on a lot of sexual experiences, but I've made up for many of them.
What do you do to get in the mood for writing love scenes? Candles, music etc?
I get up at 5am to write, so if I'm working on a love scene, I'll stay in bed for a few minutes and daydream. Sometimes I listen to a dirty song or two.
What do you do when you’re not writing?
Herding my 3-year-old. She's at the age where she needs (demands!) constant entertainment.
Tell us something that might surprise our readers.
My husband used to be a youth pastor.
All three Twisted Mosaic books in one volume, plus a deleted scene, and three exclusive bonus stories!
Dirty little secrets.
Talia indulges her sexual pleasures, turning her life into a twisted mess. Sleeping with Alex is dangerous and reckless, and she craves that excitement. Loving Will is comforting and safe, and she needs that stability. Why can’t she get everything she wants from one man?
All the wrong reasons.
Alex has everything he wants. He loves the power that comes with his job, and fooling around with his boss provides the illicit kink he needs. He's in charge and trusts no one.
When Alex's case forces them back together, Talia discovers she still craves both her former lovers. Can only one love her enough to satisfy her twisted desires and provide the stability she needs?
Love takes an unexpected twist.
Will loves Talia, and he's willing to give up everything to be with her. Their future hinges on her answer to one simple question. But when he leaves his life behind to pursue her, he's confronted with choices he didn't expect.
No more secrets. No more lies. Old love? New love? Or do they have a third option?
