Once again I get to share the stage with my alter ego Tammy Dennings Maggy. In just five short days, the second book of her Now and Forever series will be released. It’s been a long time in between the first book and The Island (Now and Forever 2), but having read it all TWICE now I have to say it was worth the wait! Not to mention I got to meet the villainess Julia Santos live and in the flesh! (fanning self.) We’ll get to that in a bit.
First things first. Make sure you all have your drink orders in. Once Tammy gets to talking, Taboo’s bartenders stop serving. Don’t try to get them to make an exception either. They absolutely ADORE her and hang on her every word. Too bad boys! Tammy is spoken for by a HAWT 18 year member of the Coast Guard. (sigh) He is one hell of a Knight in Shining Armor but if you get too close to his woman, he’ll go all Hulk SMASH on ya, so don’t say I didn’t give you any warning.
(The lights start to dim, signalling the show is about to start.) Looks like Tammy’s ready to come out. Put your hands together and welcome to The House of Taboo’s Center stage, the sinfully sassy author of erotic romances that will curl your toes, Tammy Dennings Maggy!
(Tammy comes out on stage dressed in black from head to toe, thigh high boots, and wait…not all black at all. She’s taken a page out of Maya DeLeina’s book and is wearing the Taboo hot purple and black leather corsette. Oh those two! They did that on purpose to throw me off my game!)
What’s the matter, Lia? Cat got your tongue? LOL
I see you’ve been checking out our clothing line again. I have to say, both you and Maya do those corsets well. Am I right folks? (the crowd cheers wildly and the Tony the head bartender blows her a kiss.)
Now don’t you go flirting with me, Anthony! I know your heart belongs to Maya. 😉 It’s great to be back here. You’ve really outdone yourself with The House of Taboo, Lia.
Thanks, but we aren’t here to talk about me or the club. It’s your turn to shine tonight, Vixen. You’ve been hard at work on the Now and Forever series for how long now?
|Available for Pre-Order Now|
It took nearly two years for me to finally finish the first book, but the others have all been coming along pretty well over the last year. The Island will come out officially on November 15th and I hope to have The Surrender of Julia ready to send off to Siren with in the next two months.
How do you find the time to write when you work full time as a veterinarian and have a brand new hubby to take care of?
Sometimes I wonder about that myself, but I’m fortunate to have many people in my corner helping out with everything else. My husband, Liam is my biggest cheerleader and keeps our house and our life running smoothly so I can get lost in my writing. As you know, sometimes those pesky characters won’t give me a break.
One in particular kept you guessing, am I right?
I was wondering how long it would take you to ask about her.
Well, she made an impression on me.
(snort) Is that what you’re going to call it now? Why don’t you just come right out and admit you have a “thang” for Julia Santos?
Awww. Are you jealous? Last time I checked you were blissfully married AND still carrying a torch for Jenna Jameson!
(catcalls and whistles erupt throughout the audience) That’s no big secret. But I do have one for you. Julia has convinced me to tell her entire story…including the menage scenes!
(I’m shocked and just stare at her for a moment.) Really? I thought you were going to leave that “taboo” stuff to me? Julia got to you too. Admit it!
LOL! Well, she is rather convincing when she puts her mind to it. She’s been in my ear for quite some time wanting to be sure the entire story was told. Don’t get me wrong, she definitely wanted Quinn and Jacob’s story told first, but she didn’t want to be remembered as the bitch that caused Jacob’s near fatal accident.
The Island starts one year after For the Love of Quinn left off, but since you write it as a series of flashbacks, it’s actually a prequel. Why didn’t you put this one out first?
I didn’t have the story then. The very first scenes that came to me were the ones at the END of For the Love of Quinn. When I started on the opening scenes where Quinn is in Vegas the same time Jacob is, I had no idea that Steve Eischer was going to take over everything. Then I got another shocker when Jacob tells his friends about the accident that nearly took his life…all because of a girl. That girl was Julia. She’s only mentioned briefly, but like you, I wanted to know more about her.
So you wrote the short story “A Christmas Miracle for Jake” because you wanted to tell more about Jacob’s former life?
Uh huh. People can read that short on my Behind Closed Doors blog HERE. It’s in three parts for a blog hop I did then. You will see even with that short, there was a whole lot of story going on and Julia stole the show.
That she did! Folks, Tammy has agreed to share an excerpt from The Island where Julia gets her freak on with Jacob. Obviously this is before the accident that puts him in a coma and on the Island, but I think this is a pivotal part of their story.
Yes it is. This is one of the times you get to see a more vulnerable part to Julia. Jacob helps her to realize many of her fantasies, but she’s at a loss as to why what they have isn’t enough for her. Don’t get me wrong. The sex is out of this world, it’s just she craves more.
And so will you when you hear who we got to read this excerpt for everyone tonight. Please direct your attention to the screens on the stage to our right and welcome to the House…Mr. Vin Diesel.
No flippin’ way!
