looking at Lea Barrymire & 'Sin's Calling' @leabarrymire #nkblogtours #EroticRomance


Sin's Calling 
by Lea Barrymire
Genre: Erotic Romance, Fantasy, Demons, Succubus



Victoria is first and foremost a business owner, working to help her sister and brother demons work within the confines of their nature. She’s also a succubus, created by a Maker and revered for her demon perfection. The latter being something she despises with her whole heart. As she works to free others like her from the daily need to feed from sexual partners she stumbles across her mate. Now she’s fighting destiny and the call of his lust, refusing to sate her need on the one male made for her.

Dominick is a technowizard used to living his life his way. When he arrives at a business meeting and senses his mate he’s intrigued. When she slams walls up around herself and refuses to even look at him he goes on the prowl. He uses her sex phone business to get her attention, but can he keep her on the line long enough to capture her heart?

Author Bio
Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rug rats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She's slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life's adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.
When Lea isn't reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

Peggy Lampman & 'Simmer and Smoke' @dinnerfeed @GoddessFish #contemporaryfiction

Today we have author Peggy Lampman visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* Peggy Lampman was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in communications, she moved to New York City, where she worked as a copywriter and photographer for Hill and Knowlton, a public relations firm. She moved back to Ann Arbor, her college town, and opened up a specialty foods store, The Back Alley Gourmet. After selling the business, she wrote under a weekly food byline in The Ann Arbor News and MLive. This is her first novel.

Today Peggy Lampman will be talking about how she became a writer and what inspired her in regard to the story she's promoting.
* Since earliest memory, I imagined that I would write a novel. No person or event inspired me to begin writing, I started writing in my diary when I was nine; writing was as cathartic to me then as it is to me now.
* I grew up in Alabama, but went to school at the University of Michigan. There, I majored in communications/journalism; I wanted a way to earn a living yet continue to write. My first job out of school was writing copy for Hill and Knowlton, a public relations firm in Manhattan. New York beat me up, and I eventually moved back to my college town, Ann Arbor. There, I opened a specialty food store, had children, and my aspirations to write a novel were derailed. After selling my store, I got a food by-line in the local paper and then with a Michigan dot com.
* After the transition from paper to digital, my salary was reduced, so I quit and wrote “Simmer and Smoke”.
* One December afternoon in 2010, I was visiting my ancestral graveyard in Stewartville, Alabama. As I watched a young woman and child wander down the road, I wondered how a young mother could escape a town of poverty and crack houses. That evening I wrote the first page of "Simmer and Smoke".
* I write about what I know. There were experiences in life that changed me, and there was no closure for me until I wrote about them. “Simmer and Smoke” reflects these experiences, albeit twisted, tortured and exaggerated. I grew up in the deep South and intimately know her landscape and people.

~ Blurb ~
* A single mother who dreams of becoming a chef.
* A food writer who just lost the love of her life.
* Two women discover what's worth fighting for in this deliciously rendered novel that illuminates the power of food, love, friendship and family on the human heart .
* 1. ASSEMBLE INGREDIENTS:
* Shelby Preston--a young, single mother trapped in a hardscrabble life in rural Georgia--escapes her reality as she fantasizes herself a respected chef in a kitchen of gleaming stainless steel and pans shimmering with heat. Mallory Lakes--an Atlanta newspaper food writer--may lose her job, and searches for her muse in a shot glass of illusion.
* 2. SIMMER:
* Mallory secures her job by crafting a zealous doppelgänger to satisfy the expectations of an illusive cyber audience. This also mollifies the memories of her lover who recently bolted; no warning. Shelby persuades her mother to take care of her daughter so she can pursue her dream of going to chef school in Atlanta. She cooks them a special dinner said to bring good luck; Lord knows her family could use a pot of something good.
* 3. SMOKE:
* Chasing desires and ambitions, the women's lives unravel down a path beyond the kitchen, then weave together in an unsettling culinary landscape of organic farms and shadowy borders--some borders not meant to be crossed. As Mallory combats her demons with booze and pills, and Shelby battles the odds stacked against her for becoming a chef, the women discover what's really worth fighting for.
~ Excerpt ~
Mallory
* Memos from the edge, self-help hieroglyphics, throwaway lines galloping off paper, most of them unfinished. These are the words I should have said to Cooper the day he left, bade farewell, adios, arrivederci—however you say goodbye. Itchy, my dearest friend, is returning a platter and will ignore them, assuming they are recipe scribbles. But if these tourniquets had a voice, their banshee wail would rant, rage and scream, shaking the foundations of Atlanta.
* Dearest Cooper. What a splendid feast you made of me. A sprinkle of salt, a grind of pepper, you chewed me up then spit me out. Was I that abhorrent?
* Visceral, grisly, teeth-gnashing words; much better script. I write, post, then return to my cutting board. Chopping furiously, I collect, examine, and discard words much too ordinary to assuage my grief. Words...words...I need more words; what words can I write that will ease the pain of what you’ve done?

Will Kindise find true love or will betrayals at every turn crush the fight out of her? Can she find her inner strengths to keep fighting and lead The Freedom Fighters to defeat the Dirt Dweller elites, once and for all?
~ Excerpt ~
* She found him to be more tempting than the fruit but she wasn't about to let that little secret out. A part of her felt guilty for thinking the way she was. After all, she was in love with Lytell, wasn't she? Of course she was! She wouldn't have come all this way at the risk of her safety if she wasn't. She didn't care what Tessla said on the flight down here about her longing to find Lytell only because he gave her things she never had and doused her with male attention. "Oh, is it real?"
* "From Sori's own hydro-garden. Want a bite?"
* "Yes." When she was close enough to reach for it, he teasingly pulled it back. She looked up into his twinkling eyes and her stomach fluttered. Damn it. I didn't have this kind of reaction with Talut. Well…he never teased. But still…I love Lytell, so why all the unsettling emotions with Jaden?
* "I'll give you a taste if you tell me one thing."
* "What's that?"
* He stepped into her personal space holding out the berry. Her breaths quickened as she reached for it again, but instead of getting the sweet fruit, she inadvertently grabbed his fingers. Every cell in her body ignited at the connection, forcing her to back up several steps. She should have retreated because of the invasion of her space, but she hadn't, she did it out of fear of the unexpected attraction she was experiencing.
* His deep voice was nearly a whisper and dripped with seductiveness. "Tell me what the draw was to Lytell?"
* She held her hand up like a shield to stop any future advancement on her space, though he hadn't made another move toward her.
* "Not was, Jaden. Is." She tilted her chin up feeling that timeworn need to defend her lover--again.
* "He's highly intelligent, interesting, and confident."
