Interview: Author, John Locke

We are happy to have John Locke, author of the Donovan Creed series, here today to answer our questions.

The Sexy Lover: Hello John. Thanks for letting me ‘grill’ you. I have read all three novels in your Donovan Creed series which I think are wonderful.
John Locke: Thank you. I’m honored to hear you say that.

The Sexy Lover: Of the three so far which has been your favorite?
John Locke: Probably Saving Rachel, since it moves so quickly. I really like the twists and turns, and feel it is more in line with the type of books I’ll be writing in the future.

The Sexy Lover: Which was the hardest to write or gave you the most trouble?
John Locke: Lethal Experiment was a very difficult write because I got too much input. By the time I finished, I’d used three …

Creed’s suspicion about the fire that killed Addie’s family puts him on a collision course with crime boss Joe DeMeo, in what soon becomes an issue of kill or be killed.

DeMeo, a relentless killer who will stop at nothing to protect his empire—targets Creed and his loved ones for death. But Creed has plans of his own. Employing a bizarre cast of characters including a giant, a rival crime lord, an angry midget bent on world conquest—and a team of circus clowns—Creed goes on the attack, with hilarious results.

The Devil’s Playground (Morgan Kingsley, #5) by Jenna Black

Genre: Urban Fantasy 

Morgan Kingsley, a kick-ass exorcist, can deal with Lugh, the super-sexy demon living inside her, but does he have to moan softly during her intimate moments with her mortal lover? Understandably, Brian is reluctant to share the pleasures of Morgan’s flesh with a gorgeous rogue from the Demon Realm.

But personal matters will have to wait when the opportunistic owner of The Seven Deadlies demon club in Philadelphia enlists Morgan’s help in heading off a crisis: It seems that demons have started showing up at the hot spot in alarming numbers and in the unwilling bodies of rough trade club-goers. Morgan is sure that Dougal, Lugh’s sworn enemy, is behind this, but why? To find out Morgan must summon every ounce of power at her command—or risk …

Geekdom of Books: Foreign Releases

This post is really just my opinion on what can go wrong when a book gets published in Germany.

And believe me that happens more than you think. And yes, I’m aware of this just being the minority but it makes me angry nonetheless.

It’s a totally subjective post and I can only speak for German releases.
No idea how it works in other countries.

1. Inventing a new English Title for the German edition

Okay I’m not thinking about anything as hilarious as “The Playboy Sheikh’s Virgin Stable-Girl“and other wonderful Harlequin Presents creations but the things we get here in Germany are sometimes rather mind boggling. I can understand when an English book gets a German title cuz that’s what we all would expect but why would they change a English title into another English …

Geekdom of Books: Amigurumi

Today’s post is a bit book unrelated but it soooo cute I just couldn’t not blog about it. 

Amigurumi are little sweet crotched puppets and as always I searched for some more geeky ones and I found a few very cute ones. I tried to make some of them on my own and I have to admit my crafting skills aren’t high enough for crocheting. Man the oney I made look weird to say it nice. More reason for me to admire those who can make these gorgeous Amigurumi.

And before I forget it: Happy belated Pi Day!!!! (Pi Men found here)

The first one is all abot the Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and i just love them. One the right you can see Gandalf. I love the tiny pipe. You can take a look at the rest of the characters here.

Next we have X-Men and what better example to show you …

1st March Shift by Rachel Vincent

Genre:  Urban Fantasy
Being the first female werecat enforcer isn’t easy. Scars accumulate, but I’m stronger in so many ways.

As for my personal life? It’s complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother’s death and my father’s impeachment, it’s all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe.

With the body count rising and treachery everywhere, my instincts tell me to look before I leap. But sometimes a leap of faith is the only real option…

Geekdom of Books: Bookshelves

The Equation Bookshelf is designed by Marcos Breder and is one of the most stylish geeky things I’ve ever seen. It plays with the mathematical methods of separation and organizes your books with them. You can put the important stuff in the (parentheses) or just sort them in your own system in the [square brackets] and {braces}. I found this one at Designspotter.

And OMG take a look at this one. I so adore it. It’s so funny. I just need a flat-panel TV. LOL But back to the bookshelf:
The Puckman bookcase is made of shining varnished wood. The Colour is yellow to remind you of the famous character of the 80’s classic video-game “Pac-Man”.

Unfortunately it has no prize. You have to request that and I think that is warning enough for my credit card. I found this here and you can visit the website of the designer …

Around the Bookish World: News-in-Review and Giveaways, too!

Forever Kindle(ing) Your Love?

Heart-ing Enhanced?

Wait, wait – I got it…Nintendo DSi, right?

Are enhanced versions of e-books the next best thing or a passing fad? 

I am not a huge fan of eBooks in general, but the convenience of them sometimes gets to me and I will download one or a…few. I own a Sony eReader, but hardly ever use it. Just yesterday though, I downloaded a book onto my iPod Touch…because the book was free that way. I guess my point is that for me it comes down to how convenient is it or how much effort is it? I prefer books I can hold in my hand, flip …

Guest Post & Giveaway: Julia Rachel Barrett

I am a passionate person.  I’m passionate about my family and my children…my pets, my parents, my political values, my sports teams, my exercise, my food and wine, and my spiritual beliefs.  I’m even passionate about my ketchup – there better be plenty of it served with my French fries! 
I’m especially passionate about words.  Words have the power to change the world.  Let’s not kid ourselves – throughout history, the written word has provided impetus for forward progress.  It’s given us something else, pleasure, pure pleasure and an invaluable venue to express our imaginations.  I love the written word.  Books, magazines, newspapers, ebooks – I love ‘em all!
So how much fun is it to be a writer?  Hey, for …
