Read the romance Asian Adventures new from Lisabet Sarai @lisabetsarai #RLFblog #MulticulturalRomanceIn Asia, the lines blur: between body and spirit, fantasy and reality, male and female, lust and love. Explore the emotional frontiers of the Orient in these arousing and moving multicultural romance tales by Lisabet Sarai.

Lisabet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Asian Adventures.

Asian Adventures: Erotic Tales from the East by Lisabet Sarai

Genre – Bisexual multicultural romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): X

Among the ancient ruins of Angkor, passion flares between a black American and her mercurial tour guide. A gay couple on a Vietnam holiday welcome a disabled woman into their circle of love. A construction worker from the Bible belt wrestles with his lust for a Bangkok ladyboy. In strait-laced Singapore, a brilliant entrepreneur tries to hide his secret vice from his attractive new business partner. Indulge yourself in Asian Adventures – a boxed set of lush, evocative erotic romance from an author who has made the East her home.

Why did you write this book?

I’ve been living in Asia for nearly than twenty years. During that time, I’ve traveled widely. I wanted to capture some of my experiences and share them with my readers. Although the characters and plots in Asian Adventures come mostly from my imagination, the settings are real. Asia truly is a paradox, a place where lines blur. These stories are fiction, but I hope they have the ring of truth.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I like variety, so it’s pretty difficult to choose a favorite. Right now I happen to be reading two mysteries: Body Work by Sara Paretsky, and Basket Case, by Carl Hiaasen. The two books could hardly be more different. The former is intricate, dark and violent, unfolding on the icy streets of a Chicago winter. The latter is light-hearted and humorous some would say silly–laced with quirky romance and set in sunny Florida. Both offer great characters, though. I’m also in the middle of an erotic horror tale by Aurelia T. Evans and I’ve just started an erotic romance (In His Arms) by my good friend Tina Donahue. Oh, there’s also the moral philosophy book I’m reviewing for a former professor of mine…

Check back with me in a month and I’ll likely be reading a whole different set of genres!

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Last time I was asked this in an interview, my answer was Sherlock Holmes. But I’d forgotten about V.I. Warshawski, Sara Paretsky’s fantastic private investigator heroine. Unlike some series, Paretsky has allowed her character to age across different volumes. In the book I’m reading now, Vic is pushing fifty, worried about her finances and her family, in a feel-good relationship that she’s not sure has a future. She’s intelligent, experienced and tough, but like all of us she has her demons, and she’s very aware of how age has reduced her energy. The thing that draws me to her most strongly, though, is her moral sense. Despite her street smarts and world-weary attitude, she takes risks and makes choices based on compassion rather than calculation. I’d love to meet her in person.

What are you working on at the moment?

My major WIP right now is The Journeyman’s Trial, the second book in my series “The Toymaker’s Guild”. This is steam punk erotica with some romantic elements, set in an alternative Victorian England. Gillian Smith, the nineteen year old engineering genius who’s my heroine, is one of my favorite creations. I’ve got half a dozen chapters written so far. April will bring me some vacation time, which I hope to be able to devote to writing. My goal is a release in the third quarter of 2021.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

My next book, coming in April, will be a re-release of my BDSM erotic romance The Understudy, a tale about an ingenue and a seasoned veteran in a summer theater troupe. Then in May, readers can look forward to a new, expanded version of my polyamory tale, Truce of Trust.

Read For Eternity by Samantha Calcott @CalcottSamantha #RLFblog #NewRelease #LGBT #PNRA human and a wizard find a mutual connection in Samantha Calcott’s new LGBT paranormal romance, For Eternity. When the vampire war begins, will their love survive?

Samantha, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about For Eternity.

For Eternity by Samantha Calcott

Genre MM PNR

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

After World War Three, the world is scourged by vampires, and the only hope of stopping them lays in the hands of nineteen-year-old Desi Duponce.

He has an idea, but in order for it to come to fruition, he must collaborate with the older wizard Oscar Scott.

Desi didn’t expect his new partner to be so alluringly handsome. In addition to fighting the vampires, Oscar teaches him much more than he expected as he shows Desi the true pleasures of being his submissive.

Why did you write this book?

Originally, I wrote this as a 3k word short story for an anthology, but I wanted more detail in the vampires and while Desi and Oscar were potionmaking, so I rewrote it into a novella length. I was inspired by a different fictional character and my love for him, and wanted to create someone just as attractive and powerful, hence Oscar.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I actually love horror, but dark romance has a special place on my heart. Especially BDSM.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre. He’s so stoic, sarcastic, and alluring.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am working on Yes, Professor. It’s a coming of age taboo BDSM romance about a college student and her cruel, sexy professor and the things he will put her through to earn a degree.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Yes, Professor releases May 7th, and I have my first sweet romance, Coffee Shop Christmas, coming in November, in the multi-author boxed set Sugar Plum Kisses.

Bucket list of Deja Alvarez from A Stroke at Midnight @laylawriteslove #RLFblog #ContemporaryLockdown creates love in Lyndell William’s new BDSM romance A Stroke at Midnight. Tied down by guilt and separated by quarantine, Mateo and Deja decide to free themselves with a New Year’s Eve night of passion. But will it destroy their family and friendship?

Let’s meet Deja Alvarez from A Stroke at Midnight. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here!

A Stroke at Midnight by Lyndell Williams

Genre BDSM romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings):

He will have her before the year is out!

Mateo spent too many years craving the taste and touch of Deja’s body. He restrained from taking his brother’s widow to bed. Now the sinner in him is winning the battle. He is through imagining all the naughty things he can do with her. Time to put all his kinky plans into action.

He assembles his toys, determined to stroke Deja by the time the clock strikes twelve on New Year’s Eve.

Deja knew it was wrong to lust after her dead husband’s brother. She tells herself that Mateo only wants to help raise her son, but she can’t keep ignoring the way he looks at her and how it makes her tingle with desire. She can’t resist the call of his hot body, and she does not want to.

A Stroke at Midnight is a BDSM holiday short with an alpha male into kink. **NO abuse, NO cliffhanger, guaranteed HEA!**

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: 43

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Buffalo, New York

Profession: Grants Management Specialist

Ethnicity: African American

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I am a tall woman. At about 5’8″, I usually tower over those around me. I love wearing my naturally coily black hair, so it frames my oval face and brushes the top of my shoulder. It takes a lot of work to keep them springy, but Mateo likes it that way. So, I make sure my coils are in all their glory when he’s around. Did I just write that? Yeah, I did.

I’m not supposed to be so into my husbands’ older brother, but Javier has been gone a long time. His death tore all of us up. Mateo and I clung to each other, and now, I’m feeling … things. Where was I?

Oh, yeah. I have dark brown skin, which I keep moisturized with my own combination of cocoa and shea butter I mix myself. Winters in Buffalo can be brutal on my skin, and a girl doesn’t want to run around looking ashy.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Let’s see. I am in my early forties and the mother of a great teenage son, even though he has been a real pain in the butt lately. When I am not hacking away at my laptop for work, I use the rest of my time and energy trying to keep Benito in line. He has been a handful since Javier died. I love him so much, though. So, I let my son live.

I work from home, which makes me a major homebody. That’s all right because the pandemic has everyone locked down at home most of the time anyway. My life hasn’t changed much. I still work and socialize over Wi-Fi, laughing, crying and arguing with friends and family through face time and direct messages.

Who is the significant other in your life?

As weird as it is for me to think, my brother-in-law, Mateo is an “other” and incredibly significant. He moved to Buffalo to help me with Benito. Over the past few years, he became the father figure in my son’s life and slipped into co-parenting him with me. I trust him with so much, more than anyone else in my life.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

I am an only child.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

When I was a kid, I had one of those Speak and Spell toys. I begged my parents for weeks for one. It was my gateway to writing, and I have been a keyboard geek ever since.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

My favorite food is anything someone else cooks for me. The way it is prepared is by me sitting my plump bottom on the sofa, watching TV.

Tell us about your best friend.

I am not the best friend type of person. I love me some me, though. So, I guess I am my own best friend.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Hmm … Well, there is one place I would like to visit, but I know I never can, unless I convert. I always wanted to go to the city of Mecca. My cousin, Brandon is Muslim. He showed me pictures of when he went on a pilgrimage there. It was so beautiful, but only Muslims are allowed in the city.

I would also like to go to Peru. My Zumba instructor, Maritza is from there.

Where is a place you would never like to return to, and why?

I could live without going to France again. Javier took me to Paris for our honeymoon. I do not understand all the hype about that city.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

I want to meet Michelle Obama’s stylist. For real, the woman never looks bad. I want to get tips and tricks from the person who makes the former first lady stomp around awesome, all day, every day.

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

I try my best to avoid Benito’s girlfriend, Amanda’s parents. Amanda is sweet enough, but I can’t stand her parents. I had arranged for us to meet at a restaurant for dinner. Her father had the nerve to wear one of those red hats. It was obvious to me that he wanted to send a message, and I got it loud and clear. So, I steer clear of them.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

I am happy in my own time. I am not interested in going back and fiddling around with the past. The future is full of unknowns, which is scary as hell. I do not want to go there either, only to find out the people I love are all dead or something.

Meet Lyndell Williams

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

A Stroke at Midnight is my first venture into the BDMS romance subgenre. I want to explore and incorporate a range of sexual proclivities and fetishes for my characters and bring them to readers.

I was nervous about drafting love scenes with BDSM elements. Things can go wrong quickly, turning a scene meant to be sensual and titillating into something gross. It takes finesse.

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

One of the challenges about short stories is that readers don’t get a lot of detail about the characters. Authors must give enough to make characters interesting and drive the plot, and nothing more, which means leaving out a lot of background. I wanted readers to get to know more about Deja. I had to keep so much of her awesomeness out of the book.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

No. A Stroke at Midnight is a standalone book. Readers have asked for a follow-up. You never know.

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?

None. I am a romance writer. I would like to write in romance subgenres. I have a few paranormal romances, and I want to write a sci-fi romance so badly. I am simply scared of all the world-building. I may hunker down and do it one day, but I have to find the time before I can write any time travel.

Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?

Many readers find my books to be divergent from a lot of stories in the romance genre. I craft diverse characters in stories that challenge the standard type of love stories that center on finite races and backgrounds.

Dee S Knight, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Thanks for sharing two tips with us today, but first, please tell us about The Cinderella Curse.

The Cinderella Curse by Dee S Knight

Genre Contemporary erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

One evening, in a land far away, a wife spins a story for the amusement of her husband. Like the original tale, this contemporary Cinderella is definitely for those who love romance and a HEA. However, she adds a few touches of the erotic. For her husband, you understand.

Two Tips for Editing

Self-editing can be so hard! And most of us can’t afford a professional editor. So here are two tips I use. As a former professional editor, I recommend them!

1) Read your work out loud. I know it sounds weird and you might fee foolish reading out loud, but you will find many problems with your work if you do this. And don’t zip through it, either. Read slowly and take each word into account. When we read to ourselves we often read words we think are there or which we remember being there. You’ll more often see what’s actually there when you read out loud.

2) Don’t rely on spell/grammar check. I’ve found that Word’s Spell Check confuses it’s and its. So, learn by heart some of the most common mistakes and then check them when you read out loud. Here are two common errors I’ve seen in books.

a) If you’re expressing possession, use its. If you are abbreviating “it is,” use it’s

b) If you can substitute “we” in a sentence, you can use XXX and I. If you can substitute “us” in a sentence, use XXX and me.
Example: Jim and I (or we) are playing football.
The game is between Jim and me (or us).

No one is going to put down a book if they see a couple of errors, but if the errors are many, it could happen. I would hate to receive a bad review not for my story but for easily correctable mistakes.
