Jo A. Hiestand & 'Last Seen' @GoddessFish #Mystery #Detectives

Today we have author Jo A. Hiestand visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* Jo A. Hiestand knew in grade school that she wanted to be a mystery writer. But life got in the way: singing in a semi-pro folk group, traveling to New Zealand, working as a camp counselor, co-inventing P.I.R.A.T.E.S. (a mystery-solving treasure-hunting game), becoming a tour agent for a Scottish folk singing group, attending a citizen police academy and riding along with police officers… But she needed to immerse herself in All Things British for her books. England beckoned and she responded.
* She bee-lined to Derbyshire, feeling it was the ‘home’ of her books. Derbyshire also bestowed the essential English police contacts and transformed the St. Louisan into an Anglophile.
* She’s returned nearly a dozen times to Derbyshire, researching and photographing for her McLaren cold case detective novels.
* In 1999 Jo returned to Webster University to major in English. She graduated in 2001 with a BA degree and departmental honors.
* Her cat, Tennyson, shares her St. Louis home.

Today Jo A. Hiestand will be talking about how she became a writer and what inspired her in regard to the story she's promoting.
The Journey to become a writer, and what inspired me during the creation of the McLaren mystery novel LAST SEEN...
* It’s kind of weird, when I think of it. The entire path of how sixteen books were written – six published in the McLaren Mystery series – has been a succession of amazing links.
* Call it God-directed or Fate or Luck… It began when I discovered Ngaio Marsh in the late 1970s.
* Now, not to insult anyone’s intelligence, but unless you are a true-blue mystery fan, you might not know of Ngaio Marsh. She was one of the four Queens of the Golden Age mystery, along with Allingham, Sayers and Christie. Marsh is my favorite author. She wrote English mysteries although she was a New Zealander.
* I went to New Zealand in 2006 when I could no longer ignore my

LeTeisha Newton & 'Sin's Pleasure' @LeTeishaNewton @evernightpub #NaughtyFairyTales

Today we have author LeTeisha Newton visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* Writing professionally since 2008, LeTeisha has spanned from Fantasy to Interracial Ro-mance on her road to getting the jumping characters out of her head. Most days she’s pretty color blind, unless it’s a great shade of red (then she can’t ignore it). Other times she’s plotting her next twenty books and then remembering that the computer can’t read her thoughts and doesn’t type at lightning speed. Either way, she just can’t seem to get enough of quill to paper…or eh…keyboard strokes, appar-ently.

A look into...

~ Blurb ~
* What if Happily Ever Afters were from a place called Elsia? What if they kept that world go-ing and intact? And what if the Fairy Godmother, young and naive, got it wrong?
* Welcome to Happily Never Happened, where fairy tales are real, sexier than sin, and sweeter than deliverance. Where Fantasy Ave is a place to see your pleasures satisfied, and the stakes raised - for a price. And then meet the ladies of Fantasy Ave, hidden gems in our world, who come from the world of Elsia, escaping the hell of their Happily Ever Afters, and offered the chance, with one last wish, to find love again.
* SIN married her Prince Charming, escaping into the palace and becoming one of the four queens that ruled Elsia. That glass slipper seemed to fit on the right foot - that was until Charming

A look at Doris O'Connor & 'Sunshine and Love' #gay @mamaD8 @evernightpub

Thanks so much for having me on your blog with my new release Sunshine and Love. Like all of the MM stories I’ve written so far this one took me by surprise.

I’d found a yummy man candy pic to share with my reader group the RavDor Chicks. This hunk to be precise.


I wondered what hero he might be, and in our ensuing brainstorming session we came up with the following. He was a Dom, struggling with who he was. A single dad in need of a nanny. Oh and wouldn’t it be cool if this was a MM….

That’s all it took for my muse to sit up, rub her hands in glee, and force my fingers to the keyboard.
Sunshine and Love was born, and I had oodles of fun, and also shed a tear or two in the writing of this story. Hopefully, you lovely readers will go through the same emotions.

As an aside, if you’ve read Under his Boss, you will also recognise a few familiar names, as they make an appearance in this story.

Now, to quote Jordan…Sunshine and Love is all you need….


He needs a nanny not a submissive…

Aaron Gibson is struggling with his many hats—single dad, business owner, Dom. His desperate search for a suitable nanny for his daughter Sunshine grinds to a halt when Jordan Carole walks into his office.

This inked biker is certainly not your ordinary kind of nanny, but the man’s instant rapport with his daughter convinces Aaron that Jordan is perfect for the job. All Aaron has to do is keep his hands off his nanny—simple, right?

Well, it would be if the two men could ignore the combustible, sexual tension between them. Jordan wants nothing more than to be allowed to take care of his new boss and his adorable baby.

If only he could convince the stubborn man that Sunshine and Love is all they need.
