Keta: And thank you for agreeing to host my blog tour for Where The Rain Is Made.
BLI: When did you seriously sit down, and say to yourself, I’m going to write a novel?
Keta: I really never sat down and said, “I’m going to write a novel.” I wrote a sensual historical romance based on a family history story, one slow chapter at a time. When I was finished, a few friends encouraged me to submit. I knew very little about the craft when I wrote it, but submitted to a very small press. With a lot of help from one of their editors, the book was eventually ready for publication. And …

Book Blurb: When a screw-up by the Fullerton University Housing Office leaves Parker Galloway shacked up with four sexy men, Parker thinks four just might be her lucky number… as long as she can get Kei Yamamoto to join in the fun.
But will taking advantage of FU’s mistake end up getting all five roomies kicked off campus, or will it be the closest thing to heaven Parker has ever experienced?
I think it goes without saying that it was the very hot and titillating premise which made me pick up this book. I mean one girl sharing a college room with 4 hot men - who wouldn’t be interested in seeing where this story goes? And FU was everything I expected and much more!

We are really happy to have Author Stephanie Julian here at Book Lovers Inc today. Her new novel, Size Matters was released last week and she is here to tell us more about this book and her new series The Fringe. Please give Stephanie a warm welcome.
BLI: Steph can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Stephanie: I’m a writer, have been all my life. I’m also the mother of two sons, which is always an adventure, usually a smelly one, and the wife of a great guy. I’ve always been a reader and I sold my first book in 2002, a sweet romance. But sweet was so not my style and I turned to the dark side. Erotic romance is the perfect fit. Hot guys, hot sex, who can argue with that?
BLI: Describe a typical day of writing? Are you a planner or pantser?
Stephanie: Well, …

This week we chose Historical romance covers for our fight…ahem..discussion. This week we chose Historical Romance covers because Caroline is addicted to those and I just started to discover this genre. *wink*
