Bestselling Romantic Comedy Author Alicia Street talks “I Heart Valentine’s Day”

Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!

We’re starting our Valentine’s Day Celebration a wee bit early here at The RG2E with the help of one of my fave authors and good friends – Bestselling Romantic Comedy Author Alicia Street.

Take it away, Alicia…

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, a special day for those of us who love romance. J Aside from wondering what my DH might give me, I can’t help dreaming about how the sweethearts in the Dance ‘n’ Luv contemporary romance series might celebrate.

I would guess Parker, gardener supreme, would make a gorgeous heart of roses for Tanya. And maybe his sister Casey would challenge the cocky wiseguy Drew to another ping-pong match, only this time sans clothing. I can see Amanda and Russ staying cozy by a fire in his fisherman’s bungalow. And Jenna and Aiden would take in a show and do the town in NYC.

If you haven’t yet met these couples yet, in the series, I’ve put the Dance ‘n’ Luv Contemporary Romance Boxed Set at a special price. Plus I’ll be giving one away today!

And since I invited some author friends to chime in on what their characters might be up to for Valentine’s Day, you’ll also have a chance to either buy at a sale price or win a free copy of the books listed below!

To start off, we’ve got three Valentine themed ebooks! Christy Hayes’s Good Luck, Bad Timing & When Harry Met Sally, Sheila Seabrook’s The Valentine Grinch and Kristine Cayne’s Un-Valentine’s Day.

Let’s start with Good Luck, Bad Timing & When Harry Met Sally by Christy Hayes. How would your story sweethearts celebrate?

Slide1

Christy: The couple from my stand-alone short story met on Valentine’s Day so this holiday would also be their anniversary. As New York City residents, Celia and David would probably venture to Madison Square Garden to take in a hockey game if one were scheduled for Valentines. If not hockey, perhaps basketball since that is Celia’s favorite sport. They would then go to the pizza restaurant where they shared their first meal and end the night as David would have preferred on their first unofficial date: wrapped in each other’s arms.”

In Sheila Seabrook’s LOL novella, The Valentine Grinch, the heroine Amanda hates Valentine’s Day. Luckily she meets up with Dane, her high school buddy, and he’s intent on changing her mind about it. So what are they doing on this special day?

Sheila: They’re going to Grandma Elvira’s wedding — which is giving them both a few wedding ideas of their own. 🙂

In Kristine Cayne’s novelette, Un-Valentine’s Day, her heroine is also set against this lovers’ holiday. How come?

2940015978520_p0_v1_s260x420

Kristine: Cassie, the heroine, hates the sappy romantic holiday because the previous year, instead of getting a Valentine’s Day proposal from her now ex-boyfriend, she caught him cheating. But Noah is determined to give her the best, most unexpected Valentine’s Day ever. Cassie doesn’t know what to expect, but it certainly isn’t the day of testosterone-laden activities and the revelation that there is more to cute-but-more-than-a-little-nerdy Noah. Much more.

What about the fab couple in Chicki Brown’s Ain’t Too Proud To Beg?

ATPTB - Final Large Cover

Chicki: Private time is at a minimum for Vaughn and Trenyce. Both of them treasure time away from the hustle and bustle of Tinseltown and the prying eyes of the paparazzi. Since Trenyce has lived most of her life inland, she has an absolute fetish for the ocean. Vaughn and Trenyce’s perfect Valentine’s Day would be a trip to a secluded island retreat where no one recognizes him.  A beautiful retreat in Fiji fits the bill perfectly.

Then there’s Zach and Sadie in Stacey Joy Netzel’s More Than A Kiss

MoreThanaKiss_B_300x450 

Stacey: As the owner of MovieMail in California, Zach is well connected. He surprised Sadie with tickets to Trent Tomlin’s new romantic comedy movie premiere, so they will spend an evening amongst the stars. After the premiere, they’ll take a long walk on the beach.

And I am definitely up for the kind of Valentine gift cooked up by MJ, Diana Layne’s hero from Trust No One.

30860ed51ad2241b2f9afb2a2ffdfd5e

Diana: Retired from the dangerous world of espionage, MJ Thornberg and Ben Walker live a quiet life in small town Texas where they own an auto repair shop. Since MJ’s the mechanic, Ben is sneaking away from the office to enlist the help of Dottie, best cook this side of the Red River, to make MJ a down home meal of chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, black-eyed peas, collard greens and cornbread. Plus, he’s making MJ a decadent chocolate-layer cake all by himself.  (Wonder what the kitchen is going to look like when he’s finished?) The question is, will MJ be able to work the next day or will she be in a food-induced coma and have to close down shop to stay home–in bed with Ben?

The food factor also comes into play for the sweethearts in Nana Malone’s Sultry in Stilettos.

Sultry In Stilettos_Romantic Comedy_Contemporary romance_2000

Nana: Since Beckett and Ricca are such a new couple, they’d spend a quiet night alone. Ricca knows the way to Beckett’s heart is through his…. stomach, so she’d make him all his Trinidadian favorites, in particular Callaloo. And Beckett, knowing his woman is so busy taking care of others that she barely has time for herself, would spend the day pampering her. Massage, nails, hair, the works. She wouldn’t have to leave the house or lift a finger for anything. He’d be her personal manservant.

So if you’d like to win one of the giveaway books, tell us your version of a romantic Valentine’s Day. And be sure to include which book you’d want and your email.

Wishing you a lovely and lovable Valentine’s Day!

An RG2E Reader2Author Interview with Award-Winning Authors Alicia and Roy Street and Their Superfab Reader Kyle Neal Dykman

Happy Sunday, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

We’re treatin’ ya to another RG2E Reader2Author Interview…this time with Award-Winning Authors Alicia and Roy Street!!!

Take it away, Alicia and Roy…

Hello, everybody! Here’s another Reader2Author Interview. And I get to open my big mouth a lot on this one because I’m on both sides of the Q&A aisle!

My hubby Roy Street and I are today’s featured authors. We collaborate on humorous mysteries and romantic comedies and are celebrating the release of Touch Me and Tango, book #2 in our Dance ‘n’ Luv romcom series. We’ve also been traditionally published in print and won a Daphne du Maurier Award for one of our mysteries.

Joining us in a three-way conversation is one of our very fave readers, Kyle Neal Dykman.

Alicia: Tell us about yourself, Kyle.

Kyle: I’ve pretty much been a stay at home mom since my son was born and am now a stay at home mom with a kid away at college!

Alicia: Hey, more time to read, right? I know you use an E-reader.

Kyle: I have had a Sony Reader since 2006 and love the convenience of always having dozens of books with me. If I could only choose one thing to grab in a fire, it would be my Reader!

Alicia: When did you first fall in love with reading?

Kyle: As a child. I don’t know what got me started, I just remember being in elementary school and looking forward to library day each week.

Alicia: Me, too. I recall coming home from the library with piles of books in my arms. I still have to have about three going at once.

Roy: I’m dyslexic, so I hated reading as a child. But I loved stories. And that’s the essence of any novel. I’m still a slow reader, especially compared to Alicia who gobbles books like candy.

Alicia: How about your husband or son, Kyle? Do they read?

Kyle: My husband is not a reader, other than magazines.  My son, who is now 22, went through periods of being a reader, and he still enjoys an occasional book, but I wouldn’t consider him a reader.

Alicia: Where do you read? And how often? Is there a time of day that is usually ‘reading’ time?

Kyle: I read every day. Usually not during the day when I am home, but I read in bed every night. I always have a book in my purse and read at the doctor’s office, while getting my oil changed, car washed — anywhere I have to sit for a few or a lot of minutes.  I read on road trips when hubby is driving. I also like to go to restaurants by myself so I can read while I eat. Before I had my E-reader I had to carry at least two books with me at all times, just in case I finished one while I was out.

Alicia: I’m the same. And in front of my placemat at the table I keep a little stand that can hold either a book or my E-reader.

Roy: Well, my favorite place is on the toilet where I spend a great deal of time.

Alicia: Uh-oh. Better change the subject before he goes potty-mouth on us. My choice of book genres is pretty broad. I guess romance is at the top, along with fantasy and suspense. But I also love the classics as well as bios, history, mythology and science. What are your favorites, Kyle?

Kyle: My favorite genres have changed over the years. After the Little House books in elementary school, I read Harlequin Romances starting at age 12 (they were very tame back then). For many years it was Stephen King and Dean Koontz almost exclusively, but I have switched to romantic comedy and romantic suspense over the past few years. I love reading many authors; such as Nora Roberts, Jill Shalvis, Janet Evanovich, Susan Mallery, Karen Rose, Erin McCarthy, Gemma Halliday, of course, Alicia and Roy Street.

Roy: Definitely Stephen King. And Anita Shreve, Janet Evanovich and Davis Grubb. Also, humor books—Woody Allen and Chelsea Handler.

Kyle: Is there an author who inspires your writing?

Alicia: Every good author makes me want to write. In romance novels I love Mary Balogh and Susan Elizabeth Phillips. But there are so many authors to learn from. Every time I read Charles Dickens I am amazed at how incredible he was for his time. He understood the psychological makeup of characters before the field of psychology existed.

Roy: When it comes to descriptive passages, no one beats Davis Grubb. His literary thriller classic, The Night Of The Hunter, still rates at the very top of my list. He has been my role model for years when I’m sitting at the keyboard searching for the right words.

Roy: What kind of heroine or hero do you usually enjoy reading about?

Kyle: I love a heroine who is strong, intelligent, and funny. I guess I like the same kind of hero. I also have a soft spot for the heroine and/or hero who is somewhat “broken” from not getting the love they should have when they were young, and therefore don’t expect anyone will love them.

Alicia: Is it important that you be able to identify with the heroine?

Kyle: I will be 55 in a couple of weeks so most heroines could be my daughter. I guess I judge just how good a book is if it can make me forget how old I am so that I completely identify with the heroine.

Alicia: How did you first discover our books?

Kyle: When you look at books on Amazon and the Sony Store they give you books that are similar, so I think it had to be on one of those sites where I first saw your Saylor Oz books.

Roy: What is the reason you keep reading our books?

Kyle: They are written so well that I get caught up in the story and don’t want to put them down. The characters are written so well that I can see them in my mind and they are like real people.

Alicia and Roy: <blush>

Kyle: How do you guys write as a team? What if you have different ideas of where the story should go?

Roy: We have a system we call “the marines and the village maker.” I’m good with first drafts. Alicia is good at structure and detail. Although, there are times we reverse roles. When we disagree on plot points, we take out the white boards and have a sit-down.

Alicia: Obnoxious as it sounds, we seldom argue when we write. We save that for day-to-day stuff. 🙂

Roy: Which of our fictional characters did you like best? Any you don’t like?

Kyle: I liked all of the characters in all of the books of yours that I’ve read, but I have to confess, I loved Saylor Oz, and would love to read more about her adventures. She is more a fantasy character for me, whereas Casey Richardson is more of a real character (I love her, too). Do you have a favorite?

Roy: Absolutely. Saylor Oz is my baby. But of course we have to find something compelling in each of our characters.

Alicia: I kind of have a crush on Parker Richardson in the Dance ‘n’ Luv Series right now. I always love my current protagonists best.

Roy: Kyle, what prompts you to contact an author?

Kyle: I think having email and website make it much easier to approach an author.  I have never actually written a letter to an author back in the stone age of regular mail.  If I really enjoy a book I will let an author know, but I have to tell you I can count on the fingers of one hand the authors I have actually contacted, even though there are many I enjoy. You and Roy were just so approachable, and contact on Facebook was so easy.

Alicia: Is there anything you’d like to say to authors in general?

Kyle: I guess the only thing I would say to an author would be to always try to include an epilogue.  I always like to see, even briefly, what happens to the couple down the road.

Alicia: Me, too. So I can picture the characters going on with their lives forever.

Are you one of those people who tend to crack a joke when you’re in trouble? Is it because fear brings out the urge to laugh, or is it that laughter helps us get through the worst of times? Or maybe it depends on who’s in it with you. Like a good buddy you can count on to watch your back.

Height-challenged, warmhearted oddball, Brooklyn sex therapist Saylor Oz and her sidekick Benita Morales, an obsessively frugal financial analyst and female boxer, are BFFs who race through dangerous situations bickering, bantering, bungling and sometimes blaming, but always forgiving.

A roller coaster of a romance between a divorced dad and a dance teacher.

Ballet instructor Casey Richardson takes an immediate dislike to the brash, arrogant Drew Byrne when he pulls his nine-year-old son out of her “silly” dance class. Still, she cannot help noticing his smoking hot body and bedroom eyes.

A working class girl raised in the small fishing and farming community on Long Island’s rural North Fork, Casey knows all too well how easily a girl can get hurt by the notorious womanizing hunks that flourish on the South Fork in the Hamptons. Men like Drew Byrne.

The last thing she needs is for him to be the only one who can save her from losing her dance academy, the dream she has worked so hard to turn into a reality.

Remarrying is definitely off Drew’s list of things to do. As head of his Fortune 500 trucking company, he enjoys his wealth and has no problem keeping it a game with some of the world’s most beautiful women. So why should his son’s challenging, straight talking dance teacher get under his skin in a way no other female has?

Sure, Casey Richardson has luminous brown eyes and a lean, taut body that drives him nuts, but he’s seen plenty in his day with the supermodels he is used to dating. He tells himself it is because Casey is the only one who was able to bring his shy, uncommunicative son out of his shell. But even that isn’t it.

Bewildered, Drew decides he just might make use of those ridiculous psychic readings he won at North Cove’s Annual Fourth Of July Bazaar raffle. Little does he know the local psychic who donated the readings has taken off last minute for some trekking in Tibet —and Casey was swayed into substituting for her with phone readings to the anonymous winner.

Add in a stint on a hit TV dance-off series, a cozy local coffee shop, a narcissistic rock star and a protective big brother to make KISS ME, DANCER a sexy, heartfelt and fun read.

The Fashion Police was runner-up in the Chapter One Promotions Novel Competition 2010 and nominated Best Novel with Romantic Elements 2010 by The Romance Reviews. It is a screwball comedy-mystery, combining murder and mayhem with romance and chick-lit.

Amber Fox has been making too many mistakes lately and something’s got to give…

For starters, Amber accidentally shoots Chief Inspector Janice Skipper and gets thrown off the police force. The only one who knows the truth about the incident is Amber, but no one will believe her.

After accepting a job as an insurance investigator from her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett, it turns out that Brad thinks they’ve still got unfinished business and the job description includes sexual favours that come with a price.

When fashion designer, Umberto Fandango, goes missing, Amber becomes embroiled in a complicated case. But Amber’s arch-enemy, Chief Inspector Skipper, is also investigating his disappearance, and it’s a race against time for Amber to solve the mystery before Skipper does and get her old job back. And just when Amber thinks things can’t get any worse, she’s being stalked by some crazy mobsters.

Who is Umberto Fandango? Is he dead? And can Amber stay one step ahead and stay alive?

HOOKED is a story of sex, greed, ambition, murder, revenge and assassination — and of a gifted doctor from a small town in Kentucky.

With a contemporary feel, the novel takes place in the mid-20th century when America was at the pinnacle of its power and prestige.  Set in New York and Washington, a remote fishing village on the Turkish Riviera, Sweden, Vienna, Cairo and aboard Lydia, the world’s most beautiful yacht, the story centers on Gavin Jenkins, the brilliant, charismatic Dr. FeelGood.

Dr. Jenkins’ miracle treatments give patients everything they want:  youth, beauty, radiant vitality and sexual potency.  No wonder he is worshiped by the celebrities who become his patients.  No wonder his influence runs from the private island of an enigmatic Turkish billionaire with a bloody secret to the crimson-draped bedroom of a depraved, Mid-eastern Prince;  from the private dressing rooms of world-famous artists to the heights of international society and the inner sanctums of the White House itself.

The touch of his hands and the plunge of his needle made every fantasy come true.  No wonder so many were HOOKED.

WARNING: HOOKED contains sexually explicit scenes. If you are offended by such material, please do not buy HOOKED.

With this debut launch of our brand new WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies, we’re treating you to a terrific, one-of-a-kind approach to the anthology concept.

You’ll get a variety of genres all packaged together, with a variety of story-lengths too, as a wonderful way to discover authors new to you!

Plus, each WG2E Anthology is based on a different theme.

Here’s what we mean by that…

In our WG2E Winter Wonderland Anthology, we’re treating you to stories that yes, have a Winter Wonderland element, BUT definitely not in the average way.

You’ll never think of Winter Wonderland in quite the same way. For example…:

  • “What’s goin’ on underneath all that snow?” for D. D. Scott’s A CUT ABOVE CRAZY
  • “More than people wear goose down parkas in Winter” for Tonya Kappes BEAD OF DOUBT
  • “There’s nothing like a sauna to thaw a cold spell” for Talli Roland’s MISTLETOE AND THE FIVE-YEAR ITCH
  • “An Ice Queen can be much more than a very cold spouse” for Tamara Ward’s JADE O’REILLY AND THE ICE QUEEN
  • “The flavors of Winter…as in Winter Green Mint, Anyone?” for Sibel Hodge’s THE S-WORD AND THE LADY GARDEN

Amazon and Barnes & Noble Top 100 Bestselling Romantic Comedy and Humorous Mystery Author D. D. Scott is back…this time, with a Special Edition Boxed Set, featuring the first six books from her Bootscootin’ and Cozy Cash Mysteries Series.

It’s Chick Lit Gone-Country…with a bunch of Bond, James Bond tossed-in.

Book Description:

This six-book set includes…

BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS
Think Sex and The City meets Urban Cowboy
A Manhattan apparel designer, who’s also a country line dancing queen, has traded in her stiletto-clad clientele for (1) the frequent shoppers of a Music City tractor supply store and (2) a tomato-grown’, bootscootin’ cowboy, but she must accept that her best fit is on the dance floor moving to her own style and his lead.

STOMPIN’ ON STETSONS
Think Hell’s Kitchen mixed with Meet The Fockers
A Manhattan-raised, culinary-schooled pastry chef, teams up with her favorite cowboy, a Meat n’ Three diner owner, to cater the wedding of a Music City socialite, but to get the job done, they must handle the heat sizzling between them while rising above their ex-factors as her ex is the wedding planner from hell and his is the bride-to-be.

BUCKLES ME BABY
Think paparazzi-hell and Ponzi-scheme fall-out meet home-shopping and Babies “R” Us
A Manhattan-raised, marketing and promotions impresario and her Nashville TN homebuilder beau are forced to face overnight fame from their success on a home shopping channel, but can they handle big business with twins on the way, especially when they’re dodging paparazzi-hell on account of one of their parents’ Ponzi-scheming past?

THUG GUARD
Think The Rachel Zoe Project meets Bond, James Bond and a Madoff-style, Ponzi-scheming King.
Zoey Witherspoon is a Rachel Zoe-esque Hollywood Stylist to The Stars – who’s also a wanna-be Stephanie Plum. She’s teamed-up with her very own Bond, James Bond-style double agent who’s about to bring down a Madoff-type, Ponzi-scheming King. Oh…and along for the adventure…try The Bootscootin’ Books Mom Squad – now a blue-haired version of Charlie’s Angels – plus all the rest of your fave Bootscootin’ characters too!

LIP GLOCK
Think Will and Kate gone Bond, James Bond…and the blue-hair version of Charlie’s Angels too…Under the Tuscan Sun.
Buckle your seatbelts! Cozy Cash Mystery, super-hot, international crime-fighting couple Roman Bellesconi and Zoey Witherspoon – now very Will and Kate gone Bond, James Bond – once again team-up with The Bootscootin’ Books’ Mom Squad, now the blue-hair version of Charlie’s Angels, to recover billions of bunches of hedge fund cozy-cash…but this time, all Under the Tuscan Sun.
It’s a super-sonic speed, action-packin’ thrill-ride, full of pot-bellied pigs, hydrofoils, and gelato!

FLUID FULFILLMENT
The Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mysteries are a unique treat for fans of D. D.’s Bootscootin’ & Cozy Cash Mystery Books…a short story-sized peek into her collection of interconnected books.
For Fluid Fulfillment, think Victoria’s Secret meets Kill Bill.
Each Mom Squad Mini-Mayhem Mystery (short story) will feature at least one of The Mom Squad quirky-crazy, blue-haired Charlie’s Angels wanna-be’s!
You’ll get to meet their extended families plus learn the unique skill each Mom Squad Member has been trained-to by The Cozy Cash Mysteries’ Quarter Master R.
