Author Jan Romes #interview @JanRomes

Please give a warm welcome to Jan Romes

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Helle, I think I’ve always wanted to be an author, although I didn’t acknowledge it to myself or to anyone else until later in life. Words stir emotion in me. That’s why I love to read books and poetry, and memorize music lyrics. It’s also why I enjoy writing so much. I’m not the world’s best writer, but it sure is fun taking a small idea and spinning a story around it.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is the Coffee and Dessert – a sweet matchmaking series. A year ago, while on an airplane headed to Texas to visit my daughter, I flipped through the airline’s monthly magazine. In it was an advertisement for a matchmaking service for busy professionals. I decided when I was finished writing the last book in my Wine and Sweat Pants Series, I would write a series with the idea of matchmaking in mind. My series, however, would include anyone (not just professionals) who was looking for love and didn’t want to go the online route. My setting for this series is a new coffee shop in Key West called Coffee and Dessert.

What are you working on now?

With the first book in the Coffee and Dessert Series now published (Meg and Riley’s story), I am working on book two (Danna and Marvin’s story). 

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t know if having a cup of coffee in front of me is a quirk, but I can’t seem to write without one. Some writers love background music. I can’t do the music thing because I’d be singing along. I need absolute quiet.

What are your hopes for the future?

To finish my latest 4-book series and then possibly write another Christmas-themed story.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

I’d tell new authors to listen to what seasoned authors have to say about the process, but only use the advice as a guide. Every writer’s journey is different. What works for one, won’t necessarily work for another. There are so many fish in the writing sea, yet don’t be shy. Jump in and swim with the rest of us.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I absolutely do, Helle. I’d like to thank my readers and express how humbled I am that they read my work. 


Author Tammi Lynn #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Tammi Lynn, thirty something yr old single mom of a 13 yr old son and three brat cats. I’ve lived in Arizona all my life and will probably always live here, since im a big wuss when it gets cold. I lived in a super small mining town called Bagdad before I graduated high school and moved out and to the city. Went to UofA and Collins College for graphic art and design before getting swept up in the crazy fast life for a few years. Having my son was the highlight of my life and my greatest accomplishment.



Have you always wanted to become an author?

Have always wanted a book about my life story, still haven’t done that one or if I ever will since I sneak pieces into my characters lives but you never know. I have always written short stories, poems, and songs since I was in elementary. Haha now that I think about it I was a huge Hanson fan in Junior high with a crush on Taylor and wrote like a 20 pg short story on how their band brought me in on tour, I may have been shot by a jealous fan at the end of the short story 😂


What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Inspiration for my first book and series ever came from wanting to get a small bit of my own story out in a way, hiding bits and pieces throughout the pages, but to also get another book out with a little older characters. Being in my thirties it’s not as easy to find characters I can relate to and wanted to create more characters at an older age for others as well.



What are you working on now?

I’m currently writing a spin off series for my first series. I have not yet done a cover or title reveal for it but its coming soon and will hopefully be published by the end of the month. This book the FMC is the most bad ass Ive written yet and Im super excited for everyone to read Cassie’s story. Contemporary Menage it has a motorcycle club theme.


Do you have any quirks while writing?

I prefer writing outside in my hammock even if it means adding some extra clothing on for warmth, im the most comfortable out there and less distracted. I also like to have music on to sing to when I get stumped between paragraphs.


What are your hopes for the future?

Hopes for the future are to keep writing books that readers will enjoy, someday be able to quit my day job to write and start up the tshirt company Ive been wanting to start with a friend for a lot of years now.



Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

My advice to new authors would be to not give up, give yourself as much time as you need to get your story written, but don’t give up. Also not to worry avout every review, not everyone has the same likes and interests so not everyone will like everything you write. As long as you like what you yourself have written then thats the most Important thing. Oh and if you can find another author friend to go through the journey with like I did it makes it even more enjoyable and exciting!



Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you! Thank you for giving my words a chance and being amazing with your reviews and feedback. Your excitement for current and future books is one of the biggest inspirations to have and I only hope I can continue to bring you enjoyable stories to your lives and libraries.

April’s Fooles

by Raven Kennedy & Ivy Asher

I was raised feral on a solid diet of crazy, so when three hot ex-military dudes show up on my doorstep, making claims about a plague and the end of the world as I know it, I don’t even bat a lash.

They insist I need to go with them, that they’ll keep poor little ol’ me safe. I’m perfectly fine right where I’m at, but I’ve always been an adventurous girl, and the three of them and their muscles look like an excellent place for a me sandwich.

These boys are strung tight almost to the point of snapping. Which happens to be just how I like ‘em. Looks like the end of the world just got a hell of a lot more fun. Let the games begin.

This is a standalone Reverse Harem Romance.

📚 The Contemporary Reverse Harem Collection 📚

by Mika Lane

5 reverse harem stories of badass alpha males and the women they make their own.

The Inheritance

Life was good. I was tending bar, making enough to get by, paying my rent, and enjoying the occasional cocktail with my best gay boyfriend, Matty. And then I got the call.

The old coot who used to hang out in my bar? Turned out he was a millionaire. A multi-millionaire, actually. And he just left me all his money. With a catch, of course. I only get his money if I’m 25 years old (check), and married (not checked; not by a landslide). And–I only have 30 days to pull this off.

We used to call him Grandpa. He’d sit at the bar for hours and never leave a tip. He looked like the last person in the world to have an “estate.” Well, did your mother ever tell you not to judge a book by its cover? And thanks to good old Grandpa, it looks like I may never have to work again.

So what’s the problem?

Grandpa said I had to marry ONE guy. Not FOUR.

The Renovation

When Carter, my hunky neighbor spies me wrestling with a chunk of dry rot on the front porch of my piece of sh*t, moneypit, rundown not-so-home-sweet-home, help seems on the way.

Especially when Tanner, Wyatt, and Dig join the team just before the scumbag bank closes in.

Who knew home repair could get so sexy?

And it turned out my house was not the only thing that desperately needed some attention. They get to work fixing me…I mean the house…right up.

My four guys’ tools were just perfect for sharing.

For sharing ME, that is.

The Promotion

Imagine you want a promotion more than anything, at the boring-as-sh*t law firm where you’ve slaved for years. You’ve kissed a*s. You’ve smiled when you’ve felt like stabbing someone. You’ve pulled all nighters and saved your boss time and again.

And still that’s not enough. There’s one last thing you need to do.

Would you do it?

Because sometimes being the perfect employee isn’t enough.

I needed the help of friends. Strong, sexy, alpha friends named Anson, Cato, Braden, and Von—four hunky men who were ready and willing to help me get ahead.

Turns out my career wasn’t the only thing that needed some TLC.

The Gallery

They say don’t go into business, or to bed, with friends. But what if those friends are four hardcore rich and handsome alpha players?

Did I really think I could keep it clean with guys like that?

And when reality set it, I realized dirty is much more fun.

That’s my kind of business.

Four different men, alpha as hell, and serious as hell about their special, secret nightclub.

The biggest thing they had in common? Me. Well, and what they wanted to do to me behind closed doors.

The Collection

I know better than to trust a bunch of pretty faces.

The charmer: killing me with his hot Irish accent

The rebel: giving his rich family the middle finger

The single dad: raising his baby alone

The nerd: always with his nose stuck in a book

But when these our gorgeous men walk off the runway and into my life, I find it’s not just the hours and lousy pay in fashion that are, um, hard.

And what do these guys have in common?




Saving Meritt

Stacy Jones and Coralee June

My dad, a small town detective, died last month, but I stopped knowing him over a decade ago when he sent me away. So, I was surprised to learn that he left me everything—including his retired K9 dog, Remy.

Determined to claim Remy and return to my life in Nashville, I wasn’t prepared to see them again.

My best friends. My first loves.

Denver, the sweet but fierce K9 officer with guilt in his eyes. Tatum, the reclusive mountain man next door, hellbent on making me keep my father’s land. And Krew, my charismatic friend, now an unlikely member of a dangerous motorcycle club.

I assumed they forgot about me, but they haven’t. I thought I was over them, but I wasn’t.

The innocence of childhood love turns deadly when secrets are revealed. I’ve learned more about the father I thought didn’t want me, but that knowledge? It may very well get me killed.



Wildest Dreams

by Lucy Smokes

In my Wildest Dreams, I never imagined I’d see him again.

The night I gave my virginity to Preston McConnell was the last night I ever saw him. Six years later and broke off my ass, I take a job at the best special feature magazine in the southern United States. It’s my dream job, and I’m more than happy to take on my first assignment that includes a one-way ticket to South Africa, where I’m supposed to follow a veterinarian who has made a name for himself as the lion whisperer.

I haven’t dated anyone since Preston, and the bitter, broken-hearted girl I used to be is ready to pack up and quit the very second I see him again. It’s only the soft words from Preston’s best friends, Jay and Wren, that stop me in my tracks. Encouragement and a way out presents itself in the form of the two hot as sin safari guides. I can’t let Preston get to me like he used to. I’m here to do a job and nothing more. If he wants to rekindle anything, he’ll have to get used to competition because, in my dreams, I’m no longer flying solo.

No. I don’t want one man. I want three.



🎬 Hollywood Roommates 🎬

by Elizabeth Briggs

Three sexy actors. One curvy English teacher. An impossible rule just begging to be broken…

When my boyfriend dumps me, I need a new place to live, fast. Luckily my best friend offers me a solution: move in with her brother and his two roommates in his Malibu beach house. Sounds good, right?

Except my new roommates turn out to be three of the hottest actors in Hollywood. Each one is gorgeous, rich, and famous—and they’re all off-limits because there’s only one house rule: no sleeping together.

They could have any woman in the world, but to my surprise they each want me. Soon there’s a new rule: whatever I do with one guy, I do with all of them.

There’s no way this can end well, but how am I supposed to choose just one of my sexy-as-sin roommates?

Unless I don’t have to choose…

*This sexy standalone reverse harem romantic comedy is intended for readers 18+ due to mature content.*

Tell us a bit about yourself

Well, okay, hi there, I’m Lucy and I’m an author. Which means that I sit at home and eat bonbons and write down my daydreams. Just kidding, I’ve never actually had a bonbon before, but I am really an author—or so everyone keeps telling me. But I do have some experience with writing, so not to worry, your book fantasies are in decent hands. I even did the whole college thing. Unfortunately, I was dumb and went back for more torment. I have a Bachelors and Masters in Literature, Language, and Professional Writing. And despite all of the classics I read for those “credentials,” I’m sticking pretty close to writing romance. It makes me happy and it makes my readers happy.



Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yup. Ever since I figured acting probably wouldn’t pan out. It’s hard to remember so many lines.



What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Which one? I’ve got so many. But I guess I would say the current one—Dark Maji coauthored with Kel Carpenter—came from a love of f*cked up heroines and villainous nobles. Kel and I both love antiheroes and we wanted to see more out there and thus … Quinn and Lazarus were born.

What are you working on now?

Opening this jar of peanut butter—let me tell you, it’s not going over well. I have no upper body strength.




Unless you meant work wise? I’m pretty sure you probably meant that. Well, right now, Twisted is the Crown: Book 3 in the Dark Maji series is with the editor and Kel and I are taking a short break. I’m finishing up the final epilogue of my Contemporary Reverse Harem series Iris Boys. It’s a novella after story to be released hopefully in November 2019 (due to having to wait for a cover) in the boxset of the series.



Do you have any quirks while writing?

Ahahahahahahahaha. I have all the quirks. I’m pretty sure I accidentally stole all of the quirks from the quirkless writers. I like to write all over the place. My office. Starbucks. My couch. My bed. My bedroom floor. I write ideas on white boards with dry erase markers and when I run out of room, I use my bathroom mirrors.



What are your hopes for the future?

Well, I’d like to continue to write full time. It’s honestly a dream come true. I’ve wanted to be an author for 10+ years, so really I wake up every day excited for work and I want that to continue. I’ll be attending several book signings this coming year, both in the US and internationally. I’d love to continue doing that as well. Otherwise, really, my only hopes for the future are to continue to make enough doing what I love to pay off my student loans, pay my bills, and be lavishly and disgustingly wealthy so I can adopt a bunch of teenagers. Why teenagers? I don’t know. Probably because teenagers can be assholes and I find them hilarious.



Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Finish the damn book. The first one is always the hardest, but you’ll find with each book you finish the next one is easier and easier. Make friends with everyone, but also don’t let yourself be swallowed up in the stampede of the publishing world. Keep your individuality.

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Hi. Hello. Thank you. And I’m so sorry.

Love Is Not Lost (Faith Series Book 1)

The first day I met the McGuire brothers, Lincoln hit me with a football.

Second day, Tyler, vowed to break down the walls I had around me.

A week later, Kayden made his move.

They knew what they wanted and were going after it.


But I had a secret. I just never knew how much of a secret it was until I met them.


All sixteen-year-old Faith Daniels, or Daniels for short, wanted was a chance. A chance to forget her dark past and forge her own future. But that’s hard to do when your past is full of great darkness.

Death always comes at a hefty price, more so, when you’re unsure if you’ve carried out such a sentence.

Given the chance to break free from her hometown with an officer by her side, Daniels will find out that sometimes it’s not the past you have to be worried about; the future can be just as scary. Especially in a new town where three hot neighbor guys want your attention.

As Tyler, Kayden and Lincoln McGuire try to break down the walls Daniels has formed; things get a little out of hand.

Maybe it was the dumb mutt that kept harassing her or the crazy cop foster parent that seemed to keep her on her toes, either way; Daniels walls were cracking. Sometimes it takes more than just one guy to keep your walls down. To gain your trust. To help you love again.

Maybe for Daniels, three guys was her lucky number.

Troubled by her haunted looks, he’s tried to give her some space, respect her need for solitude. Still, he can’t forget those eyes that are haunted and–he thinks–maybe hiding secrets.

One dark night as thunderclouds are rolling in, he’s driving home late and spots her standing in the road. It’s too late for her to be out for a walk and the pack on her back tells him what she’s doing: she’s about to run away.
