You Interview the Author Contest

I won an interview with author, Eve Langlais, from Evie Balos Yahoo Group. Be sure to join Evie's group for your chance to win an interview with an author, one who is Evie Balos and Rebecca Goings, this month.

Tonya Callihan: Please tell us about your upcoming releases, Broomstick Breakdown from Amira Press and A Ghostly Menage from Cobblestone Press. Eve Langlais: Releasing October 15th are two paranormal pieces both featuring shifters. Broomstick Breakdown -- Fate works in mysterious ways. Sophia is on her way to her first Halloween gathering for witches when her broomstick breaks down. Luckily, she lands at a garage where a hunky mechanic, after a spell of persuasion, agrees to act as chauffeur.

Aidan is more than just a sexy driver though. As a wolf shapeshifter, magic doesn’t affect him, but he’s not immune to the powerful draw of his true mate. Mating should be simple, but he didn’t count on a stubborn witch making abduction his only option.

With the factions they belong to discouraging mixed species mating, will they find love like fate intended?

A Ghostly Ménage -- Forget ghosts who rattle chains, try living with ones that like to grope. Jenna, desperate for change, buys a repossessed home on a whim. The townsfolk claim it's haunted, but Jenna's pretty sure all it needs is some filler to stop the drafts. But before long, even she has to admit, there's more going on here than the vagaries of an old house. And whatever it is keeps making her panties damp and her dreams hot.

Derrick and Mark, werewolf twins, are stuck in their house as disembodied spirits all because of an evil witch. When their fated mate suddenly becomes the new owner, they end up taking haunting to a whole new erotic level.

Can Jenna save the alpha brothers and if she does, can she handle a forever after with not one, but two men?

TC: Can you tease us with a short excerpt from each?

EL: I can’t decide which short part to post so instead I recommend readers check out a full excerpt on my site @ http://www.evelanglais.com . Be warned though, some of the language is a tad explicit.

TC: Out of all of your books which was your favorite to write? Why?

EL: Lucifer’s Daughter is still by far my favorite piece. There was something so liberating about writing about a woman who walks a narrow line between good and evil, who kicks ass but has a strong feminine side. Then there was the fact I had a blast creating the world she lives in, not to mention I made Satan into something horrifyingly unique—a loving father.

TC: When you write where do you like to be? Do you have an office? The kitchen? Outside? Etc? How does this place speak to your muse?

EL: I always work in my office. It’s my space with lots of natural light, a big desk to spread myself over (in other words you rarely see the top J) and it’s set apart so I can kind of have some privacy from the family when I work.

TC: Where would you like your career to be in 5 years?

EL: How’s having a title on Amazon, Fictionwise and Allromance in the top ten? LOL. I began writing just to see if I could do it, now I do it because I can’t stop. It would be nice in five years if I could have a major backlist with a story coming out each month and people actually saying ‘Eve Langlais, I love her work!”

TC: What's next for you as an author?

EL: Writing. Writing and more writing, lol. I just finished a piece on Cleopatra that is very paranormal with vamps and demons. I’ve got my fingers crossed my publisher loves it. Next on my list either a shifter book or a new paranormal series. My muse is pulling me in two directions so I might work on both until one of them takes over.

TC: Where can readers find you?

EL: The best place to keep track of me is on my website @ http://www.EveLanglais.com . I update my site regularly and display all my work, both current and upcoming, along with some smoking covers and excerpts. For those who like Facebook, I also have a link on my site to my FB fanpage.

Whew, now that the grilling is done lol, thanks Tonya for participating in the original contest and for sending me some great questions.

TC: Thanks so much for Evie Balos for hosting a great contest. And thanks so much to Eve Langlais for particpating. I can't wait for your two new releases myself.
