#1 International Bestselling and Award-Winning Author (fiction and non-fiction) A Blooming Boomer who loves life on the road, making new friends and meeting great people. Enjoying life in the slow lane whenever possible!
After a few full-on years of travelling, which included a year and a half checking out New Zealand, a few Pacific islands, Australia and South Africa, 15months driving around the USA in a motorhome, some quick few weeks visit to Canada, Mexico, Cuba and Spain, Allyson and her husband have now decided to pull over onto the hard shoulder for a while and have settled on the Valencian Province in Spain. Life is rich, according to Allyson, but the pocket is empty and needed time to focus on her writing. It is very easy to get distracted when you see so many beautiful places while on the road, she admitted.
The last twelve months have seen three new nonfiction books; all helping authors write, publish and promote their books, thirteen short sexy reads penned as Cyra May, three new Sweet Christmas stories (all to be published before December 2018); and a Holiday Hunks book which will be included in an anthology with other author.
Candy Apple Pink, a brand new short story, is also to be included in the ‘Pink’ anthology 2018, which raises fund for Breast Cancer Research.
Living in Spain is great. Of course being locked in a room and chained to a desk, did not help top up her sun tan, but at least Allyson was very productive.

Is It True: When the Marquess Returns by Alanna Lucas @alannalucas27 #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Alanna Lucas, author of When the Marquess Returns, a Regency Romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

When the Marquess Returns by Alanna Lucas

Genre Historical Romance-Regency
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
A Marquess in Waiting and the Cursed Heiress…
The ton is abuzz and mamas are lining up their daughters; identical twins Maximus and Lucius St. Albans are making their entry into society. But they’re not just eligible–they’re the missing grandsons of the Duke of Warrington, stolen as infants.
However, Maximus doesn’t relish the battle with his cocky, reprobate brother to be the next Marquess. And he has no time for the simpering misses now vying for his attention. Only Miss Sabina Teverton has his interest.
She was resigned to life as a spinster but from the moment Sabina meets Lord Maximus, her heart is torn. She dreams of a match with him–but how can that be when she’s been branded as cursed…and she knows secrets of that night long ago when Maximus and his twin were snatched from their cradles?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No – number 12!
this book is part of a series?
Yes- it is part of a multi-author series, but each book is a standalone.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes! In addition to the twin brother’s in the story constantly arguing in my head, my family and I were selling one house, moving into my mom’s house while the new—well, new to us—house was going through escrow, moved again, then just when we were down to last five boxes, a plumbing disaster struck (rooms gutted, new plumbing throughout…just a mess!).
you did research for this book?
Yes
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
No
this book has more than one genre?
No
you speak more than one language?
Sort of. I studied in Paris, France *mumbles into her hand how many years ago* and became quite proficient in speaking French, but I rarely get the opportunity to speak it now. My kids have just started taking French this semester, so I’m hoping it comes back to me.
you grew up where you live now?
No
you love to read?
OMG Yes!! I love books! (Does anyone answer ‘no’ to that?)
you are never late?
Ha! I have a teen daughter. Of course we’re always running late!
you love pizza?
Yes—my husband makes the best pizza, all from scratch.
you love sushi?
Yes
you have a pet?
Yes—Josie is a very sweet German Shorthaired Pointer.

Is It True: Blood Instincts by Marie Lavender @marielavender1 #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #PNRWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Marie Lavender, author of Blood Instincts, a paranormal romance/urban fantasy with a futuristic angle. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Blood Instincts by Marie Lavender

Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Enter the Other World at your own risk…
What if you found out that you weren’t exactly…human?
Myah Sullivan is suddenly living that nightmare. There are Others in the world, dangerous, supernatural creatures that make her mind spin and cause her to question the reality she’s always known.
Oliver King is her savior, a vampire who tries to show her the way. Through her journey she learns far more than she ever thought she would about herself, and about the past. Soon, she discovers that there is so much more to meeting Oliver than mere happenstance.
Can Myah accept her new reality, or will she retreat into that normal, safe world she once thought was her own?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I have been published since 2010.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this novel is book two of the Blood at First Sight Series. This will be a trilogy when it’s all finished.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
LOL. Some sleep, yes. Often my characters keep me awake and won’t shut up until I write a scene or chapter.
you did research for this book?
Yes, I always do research for the books I write.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Of course. What would a paranormal romance be without different creatures? The Other World, as I call it, is comprised of various supernatural species. Those that this book touches on are vampires, shapeshifters, witches, pixies and fairies.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, my books often cross genres. So there is definitely paranormal romance/urban fantasy with a hint of a futuristic realm.
you speak more than one language?
Sort of. Though I’m fluent in English, my Spanish is a bit rusty, and I only know a handful of French words.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, I’m still in Indiana, in a small town.
you love to read?
Of course! I’ve always loved reading books. From the time I was a kid, my nose was buried in one. I found the fictional world a great escape.
you are never late?
Not because I want to be. I really hate being late, but sometimes it’s out of my hands. Or the muse has other ideas.
you love pizza?
I love pizza! My doctor has me on a gluten-free diet right now, though, so that puts a bit of a damper on things.
you love sushi?
Yes, I adore sushi. I think salmon or tuna might be my favorite, though I’m willing to try others. Just not the bizarre stuff.
you have a pet?
I have two cats, actually. Emma and Katerina (Kit Kat).
