1--What is the title of your latest release?
2--What’s the “elevator pitch” for your new book?
Tiffany doesn’t want love or resonance because she’s traumatized. Salukh wants to be exactly what she needs.
3--How did you decide where your book was going to take place?
It seemed the logical next step after book 4 (Harlow’s book).
4--Would you hang out with your heroine in real life?
5--What are three words that describe your hero?
Patient. Understanding. Brawny.
6--What’s something you learned while writing this book?
That it’s hard to be sexy when you have a pet colt staring at you.
7--Do you edit as you draft or wait until you are totally done?
I’m a little bit of both. I draft, but I also go back and add in bits here and there as I draft. Never full scenes, just bits of conversation or worldbuilding. So I’m more of a pepperer I guess?
8--What’s your favorite foodie indulgence?
Lately it’s macarons! When they’re done right, they’re delicious. When they’re too dry, they make me sad.
9--Describe your writing space/office!
Right now, it is an absolute mess with promo materials for an upcoming convention, two upcoming print book releases, and kitten toys all over the floor.
10--Who is an author you admire?
My go-to answer is Kati Wilde, just because I love the way her brain works.
11--Is there a book that changed your life?
Maybe Stephen King’s ON WRITING?
12--Tell us about when you got “the call.” (when you found out your book was going to be published)
This is a weird one because TikTok blew my book up. It was after I saw a million TikToks about how bookstores wouldn’t purchase self-published books to carry that I floated the idea with my agent about a trad publisher. We approached Berkley and the rest is history!
13--What’s your favorite genre to read?
Scifi romance, of course.
14--What’s your favorite movie?
15--What is your favorite season?
16--How do you like to celebrate your birthday?
I go to Starbucks and tip them a stupid amount.. I’m having a good day and so I always want to pass it forward.
17--What’s a recent tv show/movie/book/podcast you highly recommend?
I was just telling my mother (who loves to read the same stuff I do) that Lydia Hope’s new book in the Rix series is out. It’s called Sky Song.
18--What’s your favorite type of cuisine?
Tex Mex. I am the most basic of bitches.
19--What do you do when you have free time?
Play farming sims.
20--What can readers expect from you next?
More barbarians! Always more barbarians.
Ice Planet Barbarians #5
The next novel in the international publishing phenomenon the Ice Planet Barbarians series, now in a special print edition with a bonus original novella!
Tiffany doesn’t care about all the attention she’s getting from the alien men, but there is one particular hunter she can see herself with—if only she can find a way to move forward from the past. . . .
It’s hard being the most popular girl on the ice planet. The alien men are falling all over themselves to impress me in the hopes that I’ll take them to my furs. But they don’t know my secrets. And they don’t realize that behind my smile, I just wish they’d take their courting presents and their competitions for my affection and go away. I want to be left alone. But on a planet where women are a scarcity, that won’t be happening.
If I had to choose a mate . . . it’d be someone with a gorgeous blue body, big horns, and the most intense gaze ever. Someone who knows the truth of what happened to me and why I don’t like attention. Patient, handsome Salukh knows my secrets. He knows why I have nightmares and why I don’t trust anyone. He’s willing to let me “experiment” with him. I can use him. Take what I need from him to work through my trauma. He’s been a good friend and the best shoulder to cry on.
There’s one small problem.
When it comes to us, he doesn’t just want to be my friend. He wants to be my forever. And day by day, he’s getting harder to resist.
