Dylan Holt from The Assistant @KTBlack_author #incubi #succubus #RLFblog

Interview with Dylan Holt

This interview is designed for your hero or heroine to tell readers about himself or herself. 

Tell us about yourself, please.
I come from a long line of succubus/incubi, and history hasn't always painted my kind in the best light, nor has it gotten things completely accurate. I'm not a "Demon", but I'm not human either, even though I do resemble one. An extremely attractive one. <Shrugs and grins smugly>. I know that makes me sound egotistical, but it's part of how I'm able to draw humans to me.
So, I'm guessing you're wondering if part of what you've heard is true. Do I enter into dreams and tempt humans with erotic suggestions? Absolutely! It is my nature after all. The sexier the dreams, the more potent the energy for me to feed from.
Now don't look at me like that. Before you go judging me, I must point out that this isn't entirely one-sided. I don't drain the life force of anyone I'm involved with. I do take what I require, but I also give them something in return. The inspiration to pursue the thing they desire most.
As far as me in general, I'm a bit of a wanderer, able to adapt to any situation. A true "Jack of All Trades". I'm a whiz with modern technology, which comes in handy. For a long time I thought I was happy moving from town to town, person to person, and then I encountered Elise Bennette. That's when everything changed. She made me want to set down roots and get lost in her dreams.
What can you not do (but need to do) during this story?
I'm much more than I appear. I need to be honest with Elise, and show her the real me, but I fear once she learns all the details, it will drive her away.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
Trusting that I can find someone to love and accept me for what I am. Until I met Elise, I seemed to only  find two types of people. Those who thought I was a freak, when they discovered what I'm able to do, and others who were drawn to me because of what makes me unique.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
From the first time I encountered Elise Bennette I knew she was special. She is a strong, smart, beautiful woman full of many wondrous dreams. She just needed someone to believe in her when others had let her down.
What would that person say about you?
I'm reliable and a hard worker. She tries to pretend she doesn't like me, but I know better. Even if I didn't possess the abilities I do, she's made it more than obvious that she's interested in me.
What special skills do you rely on?
When humans let down their guard, I can look in, examine their dreams. Dreams give a lot away about a person. It shows their hopes and fears, but I am respectful about what I discover.
I also have the ability to enhance dreams, make them seem real. It helps to entice the human I'm pursuing to keep dreaming. If things progress to an intimate relationship, even better, but I don't generally stick around after the relationship is consummated.  
Why are you happy (or not happy) with the way your story ended?
You'll have to read the story to learn mine and Elise's fate.

About the Writer

K.T. Black often mixes genres when creating her romance stories. Whether her (F/F or F/M) stories are filled with witches or regular people, they frequently include mystery/suspense, sci-fi, fantasy or paranormal elements. She never limits the direction her imagination takes her when telling a good story.
When she's not writing, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, going to movies, cooking, traveling, playing video games, and meeting interesting/eccentric people--many of whom help color the worlds she creates while writing.
What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
Mostly finishing it. My life turned upside down a few months ago. I'm still trying to get back to my regular writing routine.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
I felt I needed to elaborate a bit more about Dylan's background. What better way than to have him tell you first hand.
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?
Dylan started out as a regular guy, but as usual, I ended up taking a paranormal turn with him. This often happens. I think I'm in control and it's the characters that show me what to write.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
This is a stand alone, but I am considering doing a series based around it once I finish with another series I'm currently working on. I write both F/F and F/M and see some interesting potential with this plot line.
Why should readers who haven't picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
            I believe that my stories read like you're watching a movie. That you, as the reader, will be completely immersed and caught up in the energy of the story.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
I appreciate each and every one of you who have taken a chance to delve into the world of my imagination. I hope you enjoy reading what I write as much as I enjoy writing it.

Faye Hall author of Mistress of Purity @FayeHall79 #RLFblog #historical

Faye Hall author of Mistress of Purity answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Faye Hall's passion driven, mystery filled books are set in small townships of North Queensland, Australia during the late 1800's.
Each of her novels bring something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.
Each of her books tell of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder.
These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland.
Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on people she has met in her life.
Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their 9 children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Gravy smothered pork with creamy mash potato
Describe the perfect vacation.
There is a place called Whitsunday Sand’s in Bowen near where I live in North Queensland that is just beautiful.  It’s a resort nestled in the rocks between two of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of Australia.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
I loved to color in, though I did tend to color in my dolls too bt like I was giving them tattoos.
What kinds of things do you read when you're researching a new book?
Michael Cannon books are always helpful, as too are books from our own Bush Tucker Man Les Hiddens.  But I tend to rely a lot on word of mouth history too, especially from my father and stories from his family.

About the Book

Title Mistress of Purity
Genre Historical erotic romance
Author Faye Hall
Book heat level (based on movie ratings):R

Prue had seen something the night her father was murdered – something that would forever change her life…
…She had seen something that would continue to haunt her and follow her wherever she went.
When she had married the Earl of Malloy, Prue had hoped to be able to hide under his name and at his out of town estate.
What she had not thought was to become his son’s MISTRESS OF PURITY.
Gareth had sworn never to return to his father’s estate, not to the life he had once thought to have there.
He had hoped that the man he had grown in to was no longer hoping to find the love of a woman he knew could not possibly exist.
What Gareth had not wanted was to find his comfort in the arms of his father’s young wife…a woman he knew was hiding far more than just one secret from him.

S. B. Redstone author of Stardust Dreams@sbredstone #RLFblog #romance

S. B. Redstone, author of Stardust Dreams answers five easy questions to help readers get to know him better.

Author Bio

My first careers in life were helping people. As a caseworker for the New York City Department of Social Services, Protective Services, I investigated the horrors of the abuse and neglect of children. After attaining master’s degrees in School Psychology and Clinical Social Work, I continued to help children ins schools and my private practice, along with adolescents and adults. Always striving to improve his understanding of human nature, I researched and then wrote a personal improvement book, Taming Your Inner & Outer Bullies: Confronting Life’s Stressors And Winning. Always having a vivid imagination and a desire to write fiction, I first wrote short stories that were published on the web and in print. My first novel A Sinister Obsession was published by Black Opal Books as well as this current novel, Stardust Dreams. I am a member of the International Thriller Writers Organization and Romance Writers of America.

What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
My favorite meal can only be found at a diner where the dinner includes an appetizer, soup, salad, main course, and coffee and dessert. With that said, I begin with pickled herring in cream sauce, matzah ball soup, plain salad with thousand island dressing, bread, stuffed filet of sole with crabmeat, mashed potatoes and gravy, and corn. Lastly, chocolate cream pie, and coffee. Of course I can’t finish it, so most comes homes. 
Describe the perfect vacation.
I just came back from it. Three days in Paris and Prague, riverboat down the Danube, which went through Germany, Austria, and Hungary. Great food, beer, sightseeing, and friendship. However, it wasn’t perfect because I didn’t play golf.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
It was a gun. And with that gun I had power. I could be a cowboy, soldier, and policeman. I created so many exciting scenes and stories, which continue to this day. These days kids and violence is frowned upon, but I didn’t become the bad people I was shooting, I was the good guy. And I am still the good guy. 
What are your hobbies?
As a retired person it’s bowling, tennis, golf, and fishing. I am an artist and photographer and my paintings and pictures adorn the walls. Cooking is a great love especially making desserts, bread, and soup.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
The theme from Star Trek.
