Interview: Marie Lavender!

A unique approach to an author interview, when Gloria Weber interviews me about superheroes! 🙂

Author Book Review.pngWelcome to my first ever evil experiment author interview!  This is something I’m hoping to do more often around here.  In the secret liar today we have superhero author Marie Lavender.  Marie, please introduce yourself!

Hello! My name is Marie Lavender, a.k.a the Mystic Mindbender, and I live in a small town in Indiana. I love writing about aliens, vampires, witches, ghosts, other beings and humans with super psychic powers. I believe that there’s a little “superhero” in all of us. I am also a book nerd and a total shopping freak.

Oh, I like that bit, “there’s a little ‘superhero’ in all of us.”  Might have to steal borrow it.  But, on the superhero note, who is your favorite hero?

One of my favorite superheroes from a book is Merit from Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires Series. I can totally identify with her quirky, kick-ass approach to things. And a former…

I Love Romance Blog

So, in keeping with the romance theme, I thought I’d give you a head’s up. I am gearing up to release a short story soon. It’s a contemporary romance. Haven’t focused on one of those for awhile. It’s good to have a break from history and magick sometimes. LOL.

Why am I telling you this? Well, I thought it would be cool and apropos for the blog to give you an exclusive cover reveal of my next book. It’s going through formatting now and should be released soon. Here is the cover and blurb for your reading pleasure!

Second Chance Heart - final cover

Initial Blurb for Second Chance Heart:

After a wild storm forces her to take shelter in a small town inn, Dana Nelson thinks that all she has to worry about is a brief stay before she heads back to the city. She gets far more than she bargained for…

A Short and Sweet Review for UYR!

I Love Romance Blog

Hi, readers! Just wanted to pop in and let you know about this cool review I discovered on Amazon for Upon Your Return, book one of the Heiresses in Love Series. Thank you, Crystal, for your kind words! 🙂

UponYourReturn_E-bookCover

5.0 out of 5 starsA Fiery Adventure., July 9, 2015
This review is from: Upon Your Return (Kindle Edition)
A fiery adventure of unmistaken love. Never have I read such poignant literature. This author is my idol. I myself write historical romance, I can never hope to be as wonderful as she. This book will hold you captive and take you on a whirlwind of romance from the very first intriguing page to the very last. Well written and well executed. I cannot brag enough about this book.

Double Reviews for Second Nature!

Yay! Two new reviews for Second Nature!

I Love Romance Blog

Great news! I just found two new awesome book reviews for Second Nature, my latest paranormal romance/urban fantasy release!  Yay! Here is one from Crystal’s Many Reviewers site:

I’ll go ahead and admit it. Ever since Twilight, I’ve been a sucker for the forbidden human/vampire romance. That’s what attracted me to this book, and I was not disappointed.

Desiree has lost in love big time. She found her husband with another woman and now has supported her own sister in getting married and expecting a baby. She’s happy for the people in her life who deserve and get love, but finds herself wishing it could be for her. Alec is a vampire. He’s old, and has a system for getting his needs met. But when Desiree comes into the picture, she turns his world upside down. Can they make this unconventional love and passion work? Or is it doomed…

Author Interview on Rachael Stapleton’s blog

Fun interview on Rachael Stapleton’s blog!

I Love Romance Blog

Monday, January 12, 2015

Today I’m interviewing bestselling author Marie Lavendar who prefers a gel pen to a keystroke and a journal page to a computer.

When asked if she had any quirks she admitted that while she doesn’t write in the shower, she does find herself working on scenes in there. I had to agree…this happens to me all the time. 

SecondNature-final cover

Desiree Edwards has a problem. She’s been attacked, kidnapped and forced to get along with a vampire of all things. It’s something right out of the story books she reads, or her worst nightmare. But, sometimes he’s not the monster he appears to be. He seems so humanlike that she can’t help it when her emotions betray her, when her body betrays her. To make matters worse, she finds out more about herself than she ever wanted to know.
She was unlike any other…
Alec has a problem…

Interview with Marie Lavender

A fun interview on E J Frost’s Blog!

E J Frost

It’s my great pleasure to host author Marie Lavender, who has stopped by to answer questions about her new release, Second Nature. (Stick around to the end for a chance to win a free copy!)

SecondNature-final cover

What inspired you to write your book?

My current release, Second Nature, was a long time coming. I worked on it off and on for years before I realized it would be a vampire story. I wrote Desiree’s character first and the rest sort of came out of that.

Do you have a specific writing style?

I believe I do. I have a certain way that I write; I am character-focused first and then I add in the other details. I am comfortable with that approach, and my fans appear to like it.

How did you come up with the title?

Good question. At first, it was untitled and then it had…
