Release day for Late Checkout!!

Adults Only

First we had Jacey and Dominic from Husbands and Wives took a break from their naughty neighbours to visit

                              Then Callie from Office Plays came to play

                              Finally it’s Iliya’s, from the Touch series, turn to meet Morena and Lorde!

 Late Checkout is available now!

Iliya has done everything she can to get over Del and Kenna. She’s moved in with William, let him dictate who she sees, what she wears…who she plays with… but it’s not working. She agrees with William that a weekend away at Mrs. Robinson’s B & Be for swingers might be the perfect thing for her, and lets him pack her things.
But Iliya didn’t know about the history between William and the owner of the B & B, the sexy fiftysomething Morena. And she doesn’t find out until they arrive.
Morena’s done everything she could to get ready for William’s arrival – new pillows, new haircut, tried to find a new relationship, but nothing can prepare her when her past meets her future. William is under her roof and Morena can’t help but wonder what it would be like if he stayed.
Lorde is also wondering how he got Elizabeth under his roof – and what he’s supposed to do with her kids. Fatherhood is new for him, but he’s giving it his best shot. But what’s really confusing him is how the Elizabeth sharing his bed seems a little more adventurous than the Elizabeth he gave his heart to all those years ago.
Not that he’s complaining.
It’s another swinging weekend at Mrs. Robinson’s!

Writing my Girl Crush – guest post

My 3-month long blog tour with Goddess Fish has finally come to a close. This is my last guest post on Up ‘Til Dawn Book Blog

Writing my Girl Crush

My latest book, Room Service, was released February 27. It’s the second in my Adults Only series, and my very favourite book that I’ve written.
That has a lot to do with Callie Champlain.
Callie is a character from my Office Plays series – bold and brash and beautiful, eager for adventure and with self-confidence to spare.
She’s who I would like to be.
When I started my Adults Only series, taking characters from my earlier series (Jacey and Dominic from Husbands and Wives, Iliya from Touch will be included in the next Adults Only book), it was a no brainer to include Callie. After two books with Callie (the third Office Plays read will be out this year), I wanted to learn more about her.
I ended up with a huge girl crush on her!
You know what a girl crush is – when you find a woman that you admire so much you start crushing on her. It’s harmless and a bit different than the crushes I might have had on men, but it’s no less powerful. I have a girl crush on Callie. She’s who I would want to be. Whatever situation she finds herself in, I can be sure of Callie doing exactly what I wouldn’t have the balls to do! She’s brave, confident and sexy – my perfect girl crush.
But not my only one. Here’s a few of my girl crushes.
Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn was the starting point, but now I’ll watch Margot in everything!
Emma Stone – she’s young and fun and talented and less obvious than Jennifer Lawrence
Helen Mirren – I want to be her when I grow up. Enough said
Charisma Carpenter – this goes back to the days of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I really don’t know what it was about her, but whatever it was stuck for me
Evangeline Lily – I think it was watching her on Lost, how she always got to tag along with the boys and not be a damsel in distress. And in The Hobbit, she used a bow and arrow as well as Legolas could, plus she fell for a dwarf.
It’s obvious I got for the strong, determined type of woman!
What about you? Who’s your girl crush?

More from the tour!

This is my second last post from the Goddess Fish blog tour. There’s been a lot of talking about myself, and it’s becoming hard to sound interesting at times, but all in all, it’s been a lot of fun!

Monday I visited Harlie Williams  and she interviewed me. Check out her blog for the full post and to enter to win a $50 gift card from Amazon!

 

Welcome Anna! Please start off by telling us a little about yourself.

I like tea, wine, dogs and enjoy Martini Fridays. I’m obsessed with the world of Star Wars and Harry Potter and secretly want to be a superhero. I guess that makes me a geek who enjoys her gin!

Is Room Service a single title, or part of a series? 

Room Service is the second book in the Adults Only series about a bed and breakfast that caters to swingers.

What were your inspirations for the story?

I was inspired by my characters in the other series I’ve written! There were some who still had stories to tell so I came up with a new series where I could include all my favourites.

Please share your setting for Room Service. Have you ever lived or visited there? If so, what did you like most? 

I set my Adults Only series in Nova Scotia. I have no reason why, although I have visited the Bay of Fundy area and loved it. All of my other books are set in and around Toronto so I wanted something different.

When did the writing bug first bite? 

I’ve been writing since I was a little girl but it was my last year in high school when my English teacher starting encouraging me that the bug really began. Thanks Mr.Clarke!!

Who are your favorite authors, book/series? 

It’s so hard to pick favorited! I love Alice Clayton’s Hudson Valley Series, as well as Emma Chase’s Royal series.

If you could have an author roundtable discussion with any authors, who would you invite?

Ooh, that’s a good question! I think I’d want to talk to Stephen King, Colleen Hoover and Jilly Cooper.

Do you have any hobbies or special things you like to do in your spare time? 

I have 3 kids so there’s not a lot of spare time! But these days I’m teaching my daughter to drive, helping my son train for his first 10km race and re-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer with kid #3.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve heard or seen?

One of the strangest thing I’ve done is trying to help a snapping turtle cross a road

What is the one thing that you would tell an inspiring writer to do?

Get yourself a writing group. Writing is very solitary, but you need support, especially from other writers.

One more week for the Goddess Fish tour

If you follow my blog, you know that I’ve been on tour with Goddess Fish for the past few months. It’s called Before the Masses Tour and it’s purpose is to get me out there for more readers to find. Of course I can’t pinpoint if this has been helpful, but I have made new friends, found new blogs and have really liked working with the gals at Goddess Fish.

Most of the stops involve Q& A or a guest post. Monday’s stop was at More Books Than Livros and it was full of reviews!!  Here’s what Isabelle thought of Making Friends, Shared Accommodations, Office Plays and Touch!

Shared Accommodations:

You MAY read this because you follow the author; you SHOULD read this because you enjoy erotica; you MUST read this if you have read Jacey and Dominic’s story before.

Making Friends:

You MAY read this because you follow the author; you SHOULD read this because you enjoy erotica; you MUST read this because is hot and unusual!!!

Office Plays:

  • You MAY read this because you follow the author; you SHOULD read this because you enjoy erotica; you MUST read this if you are looking for something different than what is out there.

Touch:

You MAY read this because you follow the author; you SHOULD read this because you enjoy erotica; you MUST read this if you enjoy F/F/M.

There’s lots more to be found on More Books Than Livros. Check it out – I’ve never had such in-depth reviews of my books!!

Interview with Anna Ellis

What inspired you to write Husbands and Wives series?

I was inspired to write my Husbands and Wives series – which is about a group of swinging neighbours – because I have a group of neighbours that I’m quite close to. Not that close, though!! But one day, I looked at everyone sitting around my living room, talking and laughing and drinking wine and thought…what if?

My latest series, Adults Only, came about as a result of that. I had wanted to get back into writing about swingers but didn’t want a rehash. My hubby came across an article in Maxim’s magazine or something like that, about a man who would travel around paying visits to women, at the bequest of their husbands. That got me thinking, what if there was a place to go where that happened. And I came up with Mrs. Robinson’s resort for swingers!

Can you tell us a little bit about the next books in Adults Only series or what you have planned for the future?

The next book in the Adults Only series will be about Iliya, who is one of the characters from my Touch series. She’ll visit the resort with her significant other, who played an important role Morena’s past.

After I finish the third Adults Only book, I’ll give the series a little break. My next project will be a full-length romance about Callie, the main character from Room Service. While I was writing it, I found myself wanting to know more about her. I hope my readers do too!

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Room Service?

There are three main characters in Room Service. Callie is from my Office Plays series, and is fun and sexy, and a bit wild, and just really likes sex. She’s ready for anything new. At the beginning of the book, she’d nursing a broken heart and looking for a way to get over him. She hears about Mrs. Robinson’s B&B that caters to the swinging crowd and decides a new experience would be a good way to get over Michael. Morena – Mrs. Robinson – is a sexy fiftysomething with a past out of a Jilly Cooper novel. She runs the resort with Lorde, her (also!) sexy handyman, who is in love with a woman he can never have.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

I can never pick just one!  I’ve narrowed it down to three – J.K. Rowling, because of Harry Potter; Jane Austen, because of her wit and characters, and because Mr. Bennett is one of my favourite characters ever; and Jilly Cooper, who is a British author who writes the most delicious smut ever! I love all her books.

If you could time-travel would you travel to the future or the past? Where would you like to go and why would you like to visit this particular time period?

Because I love history, I would have to visit the past. Maybe if I could find a way to go back, I could finally write the historical fiction without doing all the research!! I would go back to Tudor England, in the time of Henry VIII.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

This is a contentious subject in our house! Hubby DOES NOT like animals. He tolerated my cat, Sebastian, because my aunt gave him to me as a kitten. But when we lost Sebastian a few years ago, that was it for him, to everyone’s dismay. At least it for anything fuzzy. I managed to convince him our son needed a bearded dragon for a pet, so we have Spyro the dragon, and we have fish. But I would love a dog.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us today!

Thanks so much for featuring me!  It was fun!!
