Welcome to the Round Table Minnette. May I offer you a beverage before we begin?
Great choice, enjoy. Thank you so much for taking time to chat with me today. It's so nice to have you at the Round Table.
BK: What inspired you to pen this novel?
M: I've always wanted to write a comedy and this was a natural. Keenan is such a sympathetic character, as a writer, you really want to get him in as much trouble as you can, just to see how he digs his way out.
BK: What inspired your book to be a series?
M: It was a natural decision. Since the cambion has been conceived here, it was natural to follow the creature through his life.
"The succubus seduces a man, collects his seed, and transfers it to an incubus who changes it and delivers it to a human female. Seems to me that would just produce your garden-variety human offspring, but apparently not. The child born to the woman is called a cambion.” A shadow of a warm smile touched Reggie's ghostly lips. “Now, these little fellows are really something… ugly as sin when born, no breath or heartbeat, but it runs around like the very dickens for the first seven years or so. Then it becomes increasingly difficult to differentiate one from a human. A cambion eventually becomes devilishly cunning with the face of an angel. Persuasive too. Can talk a saint into dropping his drawers on Sunday and a nun into giving up her habit.” A GHOST OF A CHANCE - Chapter Three - Inbibbing Spirits
BK: How difficult is it to write a series?
M: Series are always difficult, I think. This is my third and it might be a little easier than the last two. You have to think of it as a very long book.
BK Who is your favorite character? Which one would you most likely invite to dinner?
M: I love Keenan, but I think the most interesting character is his best friend, Reggie. He smooth, he's English, he's sexy, and he's a ghost.
BK: How did you come up with the title for your series?
M: The original working title was Keenan's Dilema, but I didn't think that caught the spirit (excuse the pun) of the the book. So, I came up with a list of alternatives and ran them by my friends at Rose City Romance. A Ghost of a Chance was the winner by a large margin.
BK: Fantasy or Horror?
BK: Day or Night?
BK: Favorite Drink?
BK: Favorite Movie?
Ghost BustersI love Ghost Busters!
BK: What is a must have to write?
I've never met a genre I didn't like
BK: If you could possess a supernatural power, what would it be and why?
Telekinetics - I'd love to be able to fly!
BK: Favorite Book?
BK: Favorite Author?
He seems to be a big time favorite of many :).
BK: Favorite Song?
Right now, Call My Name by Charlette Church
BK: Sometimes while reading a book we visualize a certain actor/actress playing the part. If your book were being made into a movie, which actor or actresses do you see playing the part(s)?
Keenan - Ben Stiller
Isabella - Jessica Alba
Constance - Wanda Sykes
Reggie - Jude Law
BK: What is one thing your readers would be most surprised to know about you?
When I take a break from writing, I like to knit. I also own a sports car, a Mazda Miata, which has become a 7th child.
BK: What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
Survival training at the top of Mt. Hood for three days with nothing but a knife.
BK: If someone could describe you in one word, what would it be?
I love that! What a great description and kudos to you. I think I could use you a lot lol.
Keenan Swanson is your typical, everyday graphic designer. Well, except for the hundreds of pesky, prank-loving poltergeists that make his life interesting (in a Chinese curse sort of way). He finds his situation precarious yet manageable—until witty, smoking-hot coworker Isabella enters the scene and Keenan decides he wants her all for himself. With a horny succubus who has other ideas, a burly city cop determined to lock Keenan away, and an evil entity who’s hell-bent on using Keenan’s seed to create a living demon, the reluctant psychic realizes he just might not come out of this alive—or with heart intact.
Hands slithered over Keenan’s body, but they were detached somehow. It was hard to describe. Starting on his scalp, the hot tickling sensation sent tendrils of pleasure down his gut and directly into his cock. It was painfully erect, aching for a good hard squeeze, but he couldn’t reach down to touch it.
A weight pressed down on his body, holding him to the bed. Keenan could actually feel his body sinking into the mattress. Something heavy, like invisible clay, pressed against his face. He couldn’t move. He wasn’t scared at all…just horny as hell.
The hands massaging his scalp moved down to his face, pressing his eyes closed with what he could only assume must have been thumbs. They moved down his face and found his lips, parted them, and thrust a slender finger into his mouth. There was no taste, but the soft, warm texture electrified his senses. He sucked on it instinctively. It was deeply sexual and made his cock throb in anticipation. To his utter dismay the finger slipped from his mouth and trailed down his chin.
Keenan opened his eyes. Light from an outside streetlamp illuminated the foot of his bed and half his dresser. When she appeared in a wisp at his feet, he had to struggle to lift his head enough to see her.
Naked heaving breasts came into view; the nipples were long, slate hard, and the areolas black against dark skin. Her waist and hips were slim. Stretched fingers pinched the nipples, making them longer, more rigid. The triangle of her pussy was bald, the slit dark and inviting. Hazy clouds covered her face, making it soft and featureless, but billowing tendrils of black hair twisted out from around it, flowing in a wind Keenan couldn’t hear. It moved in a watery dance.
The covers glided slowly down his body. The soft touch of the silk made his cock twinge in agony and he gritted his teeth to hiss his pleasure. Electric shocks ignited the nerves in his neck, shoulders, and arms. When Keenan was completely exposed, he wasn’t cold. His cock sprang into ready position. The hair on his arms and legs snapped with static.
Thank you so much for being at the Round Table today. It's been such a pleasure chatting with you and I wish you much success in the future.
Thank you so much for inviting me. It's been a blast! M:o)
