Meet Dee Davis & Giveaway

Posted July 28, 2014 by Jonetta in Author Interview, Hot & Deadly | 10 Comments

Welcome Dee Davis to The Book Nympho! She’s the author of several romantic suspense series, including the exciting A-Tac stories. Let’s get started.   Jonetta: You have a very interesting background, having been involved in politics, public relations and acting. When and why did you make the turn to writing? Dee: I’ve always been entranced by a blank piece of paper. It’s like a whole world waiting for the words to make it happen. I guess I’ve always been a storyteller. My dad and I used to sit in the mall and make up stories about the people passing by. I didn’t seriously consider writing as a career though until I hit a midlife skid when my daughter was first going off to school and […]


Hot & Deadly | Katie Reus Talks About Balance in Romantic Suspense

Hot & Deadly | Katie Reus Talks About Balance in Romantic Suspense

Posted July 25, 2014 by Jennifer in Author Interview, Hot & Deadly | 2 Comments

    Thanks so much to Jennifer for having me here today! Her question for me is: What’s the right balance of suspense and romance? I don’t think there’s a ‘right’ answer to this question for anyone. A lot of it depends on the series and what readers have come to expect. For example, my Red Stone Security series is highly character driven and shorter in length than my Deadly Ops series so there’s a higher level of romance and sensuality in those books. With the shorter length the focus needs to be on the developing romance more than an intricate plot. Whereas my Deadly Ops series is high-octane with the type of suspense, danger and twists and turns that threatens not only my main […]

Welcoming Back Brenda Novak & Giveaway

Posted July 24, 2014 by Jonetta in Author Interview, Hot & Deadly | 36 Comments

Brenda Novak returns to The Book Nympho but this time to talk about books other than Whiskey Creek and something very close to her heart. Jonetta: Our followers may not be aware that you’ve led an annual online auction to fundraise for diabetes research. Tell us about the auction, why and how you got started and your success to date. Brenda: When my son was diagnosed with Type 1 at five years old, and I learned all the terrible complications he was likely to face in his lifetime, I decided I had to do something to help him and all the other people who were facing the same thing (there’s so many!). I wasn’t sure what. I had very little resources at the time—I was […]

Posted July 23, 2014 by Jonetta in Author Interview, Hot & Deadly | 32 Comments

We welcome Jerrie Alexander to The Book Nympho! She’s the author of the Lost and Found, Inc. romantic suspense series, which I’ve fallen for. She’s here to tell us more about these exciting stories.   Jonetta: You had a career in logistics prior to your writing career. First, would you explain what that is? Next, when did you begin writing? Jerrie: Logistics is the overall management of the way resources are obtained, stored and moved to the locations where they are required. I was fortunate enough during my career to be promoted through the ranks and ultimately be responsible for over three million square feet of distribution centers. I studied journalism way back in my youth before moving to creative writing. After my family grew […]


Rebecca Zanetti Stops By…With a Giveaway!

Rebecca Zanetti Stops By…With a Giveaway!

Posted July 16, 2014 by Jonetta in Author Interview, Hot & Deadly | 24 Comments

Welcome Rebecca Zanetti to The Book Nympho! Her name should be familiar as both Jennifer and I have reviewed her books in the Sin Brothers romantic suspense series. She’s a talented writer and much, much more as you’ll see.   Jonetta: You have an incredibly interesting background. Of all the things you’ve done in your career, which has had the biggest impact on your writing and/or stories? Rebecca: Great question! As for careers, I think that being a lawyer has had the biggest impact on my writing. As an attorney, you have to succinctly get your point across to a jury and convince the members of something. Same thing in a book. You have to get to the story quickly, engage the audience, and make […]

Introducing…Tonya Burrows! Plus a Giveaway!

Posted July 15, 2014 by Jonetta in Author Interview, Hot & Deadly | 19 Comments

Welcome Tonya Burrows to The Book Nympho! I’ve reviewed two of her books here in the past so now we get a chance to learn more about the fabulous author. Let’s get started!   Jonetta: You’ve pretty much always known you wanted to be a writer. Where did that come from? Tonya: Honestly, I’m not really sure. Neither of my parents are big readers and I don’t really remember anyone reading to me as a kid. I’ve always had a very active imagination, though, so I supposed writing became my creative outlet when I got to be too old to tell my stories through dress-up and Barbie dolls.   Jonetta: I understand you’re a big fan of horror films! What are your top favorites and […]

Introducing Marie Force and the Fatal Series

Posted July 3, 2014 by Jonetta in Author Interview, Hot & Deadly | 4 Comments

We welcome Marie Force, author of the Fatal series among others, to The Book Nympho.  Let’s get started!   Jonetta: Your life story is amazing. How much of yourself and your personal circumstances finds their way into your characters and/or the stories? Marie: Not all that much other than the emotions that go along with various life experiences. With very few exceptions, my characters are entirely fictional and are not based on anyone I know. Jonetta: You majored in journalism and spent many years in this field. How have those career experiences helped you as a writer? Marie: My years as a newspaper reporter, in particular, taught me to be a lean, economical writer contending with frequent deadlines, which serves me well now as a […]


Lorelei King, The Voice of Charley Davidson Interviews Darynda Jones

Lorelei King, The Voice of Charley Davidson Interviews Darynda Jones

Where turning the tables today and instead of me interviewing narrator, Lorelei King she is interviewing author Darynda Jones. King and Jones is one of my favorite teams in the Urban Fantasy world. Jones writes funny characters and King brings to life like no other can. So I am please to welcome both ladies to The Book Nympho today.      Lorelei King: I absolutely loved recording the Darklight trilogy and was totally thrilled with my name-baby, Lorelei. Why did you decide to make it a trilogy rather than an ongoing series? Darynda Jones: Thank you so much!!! I loved writing that series and my original idea was that it be ongoing, but after I wrote it (and thinking it would never sell), I wrote the […]
