Interview with Sam Cresent

Lets welcome Sam Crescent to Julie's Book Review. She is giving away a _Copy of The Bad Boys' Virgin Temptress and The Bad Boys' Reluctant Woman , so don't forget to check out the rafflecopter to the right of the pg.


Welcome to Julies Book Review. Can you tell me a little about yourself?
Hi Julie and thank you so much for having me. 

Sam Crescent is passionate about fiction. She loves a good erotic romance and it only made sense for her to spread her wings and start writing. She began writing in 2009 and finally got that first acceptance in 2011.
She loves creating new characters and delving into the worlds that she creates. When she's not panicking about a story or arguing with a character, she can be found in her kitchen creating all kinds of havoc. Like her stories the creations in the kitchen can be just as dubious but sometimes things turn out great.

What kind of books do you write? Newest release?

I write a variety of books. I write, paranormal, contemporary and in mid-January, I'll have my first M/M romance released by Siren. 

Many of my books feature a dominant man, some delve into BDSM while others are merely possessive. Most of my women are rubenesque/ full-figured. 

My next release is on Janary 3rd and is the 4th book in my Cape Falls series, His To Control. 

Welcome to Cape Falls, a town with old-fashioned values.

William moved to Cape Falls to start a new life and to open up the BDSM club, Control. He never anticipated getting embroiled in the latest scandal or falling for the delicious red-head who visits his club. He can’t stay away.

Daisy’s life is falling apart. Everything she has known was destroyed the moment her mother revealed the true identity of her father. Throughout her life, no one has wanted her until William enters her life.

His dominance helps her to gain control of her own life. She falls for him hard and she is prepared to do anything, even be under his control.

But how can these two people find happiness with each other? And what will happen when jealousy from someone else threatens to take it away?
Be Warned: BDSM, sex toys, anal sex, menage sex (MFM), spanking

What should we expect in your book? action,adventure, drama, hot and steamy?

Drama mixed with hot and steamy. 
How do you get ideas for your books?

Most of the time they pop into my head while I'm cooking. I now have a notebook in my kitchen for when my muse hits. With, The Law Castle Bad Boys, the inspiration came from Stacey Espino where she wrote a blog post about bad boys. I found what she wrote inspired the idea for this series and I couldn't stop writing. 

Anything in your stories based on real experiences?

Not everything. I like to do a lot of research for my work but where possible I do try to draw on life experiences. I also like to make sure that my readers can relate to the characters.
Toughest criticism? Best compliment?

I really don't know how to answer this question. All of my books have had mixed reviews/ comments. I think the best way of looking at feedback about your books, is to see it a bit like Marmite. Some will love it, while others hate it. When readers have sent me an email or a message on Facebook, about how they enjoyed my stories, that brightens up my day. 

any advice for aspiring authors?

Never give up. I got plenty of rejections and I wanted to call it a day. If you love writing and it is your dream, do not let it go. 

I asked for feedback from the publishers and began improving my craft with each new story I wrote. 
What do you do for fun?

I like to cook and bake, go out for long walks and sometimes sit down with a hot cup of tea and read. 
Dogs or cats?

I love dogs. 

1 Fav book you have written? why?

I don't have a favourite book. They all have a different meaning to me as I've wrote each story. I could never pick a favourite and wouldn't want to. 

What about someone else?any favorite series or type of books you like to read?

I love to read. I don't get much time to read anymore. I love series that follows characters, either the same or different ones. I love reading about dominant men and cowboys LOL. I seem to go through certain themes every year where I will either read a paranormal, menage, cowboy, or sweet romance. discovering new authors is a pleasure. 

Favorite place to travel?

I've never been out of the UK but I'd love to visit Canada, America and Italy. 

1 favorite character? yours or someone else?

Callum and Arden O'Shea from Cowboy Outcasts by Stacey Espino. Loved these men and loved the book. 

would you want to meet them?

Hell, yeah. 

Is this your full time job? if yes, anything else you want to do? if no what else do you do?
Yes, I became a full-time write in October 2012. It has been amazing so far. I'm hoping I can keep going. 
Where can we find you and your books? Social media sites? (links)
