Congratulations on your new book! Can you tell us what it's about?

-->A Scorching One Night Stand…A Passion that Could Burn Them Both to Ash
Heart of Ash: A Tryst Island Erotic Romance (Erotic Contemporary, Available on Amazon)
When Emily Donahue sets eyes on Ash Bristol, she is convinced he’s the one she’d been waiting for, her Prince Charming. But wealthy playboy Ash Bristol’ has been burned. He’s sworn off relationships, vowing to have nothing more than a series of steamy one night stands. So when he meets Emily, the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, he resolves to seduce her, possess her…and walk away.

The passion that ignites between them has him questioning his decision. He begins to suspect he just tossed away the best thing that’s ever happened to him…and vows to win her back.
Can he survive the erotic punishment she—and her friends— devise?

-->Can you tell us about your publishing journey? How did you publish it?
-->My first book, Adam's Obsession, came out in April 2012 from Ellora's Cave as the result of a writing contest. They've published 12 of my titles since then, ranging from Contemporary and Historical erotic romance to erotic horror.

It was so much fun, I decided to self publish the Tryst Island Series, following the adventures of a group of friends sharing a vacation house.

All the stories are connected, but stand alones. Heart of Ash is book 4, the most recent release.

-->Now that you are published, can you give some advice to others who would like to get their book published?
-->I wrote and submitted for years, but things really took off when I learned to make my stories as tight as I possibly could. Take classes on editing, join writing groups and have trusted critique partners. Surround yourself with writers and enjoy the journey!

-->If you had to do it all over again, what would you do differently?
-->I would focus more on having fun and enjoying the relationships I've made along the way. I've met so many amazing people! I spent too much time stressing about "getting somewhere" rather than just enjoying the journey.

-->Where can we buy your book?
-->My books are all available on Amazon. Here is my page link:

-->Any final words?       

-->Thank you so much for the opportunity! I encourage anyone who loves steamy romance to check out my titles. You can download my free teaser book to check out my work. 75 pages of blurbs, excerpts and reviews!
And enjoy the journey!!!
