Welcome to My Sexy Christmas special. Can you tell me a little about yourself?
I'm an erotic romance author who loves to tell a hot and steamy story, but also likes to throw a few twists and turns into the mix by keeping the reader on the edge of their seat! Erotic romance mixed with a good old-fashioned whodunit. I've written everything from contemporary to paranormal, but my leading men will more often than not be wearing a uniform of some kind. From military to police officers, I have a love for writing about those who protect and serve. In additional to my books, I also have a recurring column called, "Sex and the Single Woman" in BT Showcase's online eMagazine. I am also one of the Four Seduced Muses (http://fourseducedmuses.blogspot.com). We have a blog dedicated to romance and the sultry side of it. It's a no holds barred type of content. ;-)
What kind of books do you write? Newest release?
I write erotic romance, but more often than not my stories have a few twists and turns to throw it. Kind of like sex meets who-done-it stories. Although I have recently ventured out into the world of paranormal as well as menage. When it comes to my imagination one is never quite sure what they'll find. My newest release is Entice Me (http://bookstrand.com/entice-me), which came out in mid-September of this year. It's about a former Army soldier who comes home dealing with PTSD. That is when he meets Alexis and... right! Like I'm really going to tell you what happens next. You have to read the book if you really want to know! ;-P
What should we expect in your book? How HOT? MM,MF, MMF, etc.
My newest release, Entice Me is a MF monogamous story which is so HOT my publisher has it categorized as SEXTREME! This basically means it is for the erotic audience and not for the faint-hearted. The sex scenes are graphic and contain scenes which some may interpret as unconventional sex.
How do you get ideas for these sexy books?
I'd be lying if I said they just came from my imagination. Luckily my fiance keeps me 'inspired' and constantly dreaming of new and exciting story lines to fill in all around the SEXTREME scenes! ;-)
Anything in your stories based on real experiences?
I would say maybe about 50/50. While the action scenes with guns and all that are 100% fiction, the romance and sex scenes may lean towards personal experience. But, I admit to nothing!;-)
Toughest criticism? Best compliment?
Criticism: I think any review that isn't great is tough because I write the books hoping my readers will fall in love with them. Compliment: When a reader loves one of my books and is able to really feel the book. I love that! :-)
any advice for aspiring authors?
Never ever give up. Even the most widely known authors were turned down dozens if not hundreds of time. Keep trying and polish your craft! :-)
How about some fun stuff?
Dogs or cats? Well cats can be cuddly and cute.. but I am much more of a dog person. My fiance and I are actually getting a new puppy. He's only 4 weeks old right now and still with his mommy. He's soooooo cute!!! :-)
1 Fav book? why? I get asked this all the time and it's an unfair question. Books to me are like Lays Potato Chips. Can't have just one! ;-)
Favorite place to travel? Australia. I haven't been there in years, but it is truly beautiful there and I hope to go back very soon! :-)
1 fav author? Why? This really is another one of those unfair questions. You simply cannot make me pick just one with so much talent out there today. Then there are all the different genres. There is no way I could pick just one! Or even my top 10. There's simply too much out there to choose from. :)
Is this your full time job? if yes, anything else you want to do? if no what else do you do? This is my full time job. I am living my dream and loving every single moment of it. It doesn't hurt that my fiance is so supportive of me. :-)
Where can we find you and your books?
All of my books can be found at numerous sale sites. But, the easiest way is to either go to my website or my publisher's site. Here is a list of the main places you can find me lurking about the web. :-)WEBSITE: http://nicolemorgan1.webs.comBLOG: http://nicolemorganauthor.blogspot.comFACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/nicolemorganfanpageTWITTER: http://twitter.com/mornic1
