Interview with Author, Bethany Bliss

Today, I’m talking to Bethany Bliss. She’s going to tell us a little about herself and her newest book.

Anna: Welcome, Bethany. I’m so glad to have you here today. Tell the readers a little about yourself, where you are from, hobbies, etcetera.

Bethany: I struggle during interviews and can’t tell you how long I sat staring at this question before I could formulate an answer. 

I’m quite a boring person who has done some interesting things. Flew to Reno and Utila Honduras to visit friends and learn to scuba dive. Traveled from east coast to west in a car, just me and the dog hiking through grand canyons and driving up pikes peak. I have a kink for learning and love immersing myself in diverse cultures. 

I was born and bred in Maryland, but I migrated down to Virginia after our home burned down. In the mountains of Shenandoah Valley, I discovered a passion for natural healing and, of course, writing. 

My first attempts at fifteen were pathetic, fifty or so pages of nonsense, completely illegible, though after eight attempts, I managed a draft a publisher wanted. Blushing Books gave me the chance I needed and published two of my manuscripts right off, and I’ve finished two more with a goal of eight submissions to them this year. I’m still surprised when people like them. Last I checked, I hadn’t gotten a review below four stars, yet I’ll always think of my books as I had those first drafts: plenty of improvement to be made. 

Anna: What genre do you write?

Bethany: I favor romance. Fantasy or contemporary are my favorite sub-genres to write. I just never tire of constructing stories with danger, suspense, sexy heroes and kick-ass heroines, all submerged in their own little world of my imagining. 

Anna: Tell us about your latest release.

Bethany: The Bladed Tiger’s Empress was released April 15th and is the start of a Fantasy romance series called “Claiming Her Empire”. Book one follows Princess Marilla as she is exiled from her castle, becomes a fugitive in her empire, learns to defend and protect herself, then reclaims her crown as Empress all with her most loyal general by her side. The fiercest, strongest, and sexiest warrior, who earned the warrior name Bladed Tiger for his formidable duel blade fighting style. 

Anna: What can we look for in the future from you?

Bethany: Another release is anticipated the last week of May as a start of another trilogy. I hope to complete the eight books I have been working on for Blushing Books within the year, releasing two trilogies and two standalone romance novels. That is my ambition. I have already completed four!

Anna: That’s great! Is there anything else you’d like to tell us? Contact info? Social media links?

Bethany: Stalk me for fun times, book reviews, and chances to win giveaways of author swag and free books!

Thank you so much for joining me today, Bethany, and good luck with your writing.

Readers, join us again soon, for another author interview.

New Release by USA Today Bestselling Author, Isabella Kole

The Daring Doms

Isabella Kole has a new release. Let me tell you a little about it. It’s a standalone about two brothers and the women who love them.

Blurb:

Dane and Dax Daring are brothers. They are also Doms who are having problems with members of the opposite sex.

When Dane met Ann Slade, Annie to all who know her, he fell head over heels… so much so that he ignored what his brother and his friends said about being her rebound lover. He married her after three months of dating, giving up the lifestyle without even telling her he was a part of it. But once the couple starts having trouble, Dax suggests that maybe it’s time things change if Dane wants to stay married.

Dax, on the other hand, has always been adamant about exclusive relationships in that he just doesn’t do them. Now that he has gotten to know his new sister-in-law, he knows he can never settle for anyone who isn’t just like her. The problem with that is he’s been in love with Annie’s best friend, Angela, since he met her. And she is nothing like Annie. Will he keep fighting the temptation, or can Angela convince him they are meant to be?

Publisher’s Note: This sweet romance about two brothers and their women contains elements of power exchange.

Dominant Men, Book Five is here!

Hi, again! This week, I’m going to talk about my latest release, Her Second Chance Dom. What would it be like to find the love of your life after twenty years? The one you let get away? Well, you’ll find out in this second chance romance as Camille gets her second chance with the guy she walked away from all those years ago. But a lot has changed since then, and some things have stayed the same, so will they be able to put the past behind them and make it work this time? Maybe.

Here’s the blurb for Her Second Chance Dom:

Camille Robertson, savvy professional woman, has found herself alone again. She and her husband have just divorced. However, an old lover reappears in her life at about the same time, so maybe she won’t be alone for long. Twenty years ago, Camille had ended things with this man, the one true love of her life, because he wanted to marry, and raise a large family. He also wanted her to be his submissive. But Camille was on the fast track, climbing the ladder to success, and no one was going to tell her what to do. 

Cody Larkin is recently widowed, raising his four children alone. Amazingly, the one who got away has recently come back into his life. They both made mistakes twenty years ago. Can they make it work this time around? 

Surprisingly, Camille is ready to compromise with Cody to make a go of it, but his oldest daughter continues to be a stumbling block for the couple. Will Camille ever win her over so she and her second chance Dom can be together?

Heart & Soul Series, Going Live

The Heart & Soul series is a multi author series. Six books by six different authors, all taking place the same week at the same location. If you pre-ordered the first two books of the series, you’ve already received your books and I hope you enjoyed them. On Friday, May 24th, my book, Cali’s Cravings, which is book three, goes live.

Cali’s Cravings by Anna Kristell

If you didn’t pre-order it already, let me tell you a little about it.

You’re invited to an all-inclusive mountain resort and spa. Come and relax and let nature take care of your mind, body, and soul. And its gift to you in return is LOVE!

Cali George is appalled when her younger sister books the two of them for a week at a Wellness Spa and Resort in the mountains of Tennessee. She hates health food and anything to do with outdoor activities. Since her latest breakup, six months ago, she works around the clock, eats junk food and is content to run around with no makeup and her long blonde hair in a ponytail or a messy bun. Her sister, on the other hand, is her polar opposite, always has been, and won’t rest until she transforms her sister and changes her bad habits.

But, when Cali is looking over the spa’s brochure and spots a photo of the resort’s hot events manager, things may be looking up. And when the man himself, Austin Butler, introduces himself to her, the week is suddenly looking better to her every minute.

It seems as though it’s love at first sight for both Cali and Austin, but could Cali be mistaken? Is Austin a player? Cali may be headed down another path of heartbreak if a certain rich female guest has her way.
