I'd like to welcome debut author B.A.Knight to Labelle Books. To B.A tells us a little about herself and has graciously offered to giveaway a pdf copy of her new release Immortal Love to one lucky commenter.


So please leave your email address with your comment, and follow the blog to be entered for a chance to win. The winner will be announced the morning of 01/11/2012. Good luck!


So tell us B.A. how long have you been an author?

B.A.: Well I would like to say I’ve been writing since I was a child but I haven’t. I started out writing erotic stories for my husband. He was away from home a lot due to work so I would hide short erotic stories in his suitcase for him to find. Ya know just to make him miss me that much more. Then in 2003 I wrote a poem about him called ‘My Dark Angel’ and submitted it into a poetry contest, I won and that was the first thing I had ever had published. To be honest I never thought about being an Author until February of 2011. I was getting ready for work and I mention to my husband that I thought about writing an erotic manuscript just for fun. He told me I should do it that is all it took that night I sat down and by the time June rolled around my first manuscript was complete. Now I have my first novel published and three more in the writing process.


Congratulations, B.A. I think it's wonderful that you have such a supportive husband. What is your favourite genre?

B.A.: My favourite genre, to read or write… To read I love reading all books the genre doesn’t matter to me. If it’s well written and grabs me I’m a fan. To write its definitely paranormal erotica. The words just tend to flow from me. Like I mentioned I have three more projects in the works, one of them isn’t so much paranormal I’ve been working on it for months now and it seem to be kicking my muse’s butt.


What is the biggest surprise you’ve discovered about the writing process?

B.A.: I wasn’t really surprised by any of it. I’m one of those people that when I don’t know or understand something I do tons of research, so when I decided that I wanted to try and summit Immortal Love to a publisher google was my best friend. I spent hours upon hours learning about query letters, synopsis, and the whole ‘how to get published’. So I knew going into it that it wasn’t as easy as sitting down and writing a story then POOF instant published Author.


Can you tell us about one of your current works in progress?

B.A.: I have three in progress and one in note form… The longest one with over 90 thousand word count and it’s not even half way finished, I haven’t even titled yet, however it’s been a crazy ride of a story. It has everything in it you can think of: mortals, immortals, aliens, god the devil the mob… it’s pretty intense to write. I also have the sequel to Immortal Love started, it’s going to have more action, sex, and humour and less sappiness than Immortal Love did. I haven’t come up with a title for it either yet. Then there is ‘Lover of Man’. This book is almost complete so I prefer to zip my lips on this on for the moment.. (I don’t want to jinx it)


Whoa, 90,000 words and not even half way finished, it sounds like you've got two books there. I'm sure they'll be great and I'll look forward to hearing about your future success. Now for some fun questions. If you had a warning label, what would it say?

B.A.: Spicy if Bitten, Shy if overlooked.


*Grins* What is the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done?

B.A.: This question is a hard one. I have been with my husband for twenty years. We have done sooo many things to keep the sex life exciting and new so to me nothing is naughty or taboo. With him I will try anything once…. Wait we already have..lol


LOL, love it!

Excerpt:

“Where have I seen that name before?…Contact book!” I went to my room to retrieve my bag, looking around the room, “where did I put the damn thing?” Walking to the table that sat at the foot of the bed I seen the bag pushed up under the bed, as I got down on the floor to reach for it, “How did you get up under here?” I stretched and wiggled my fingers, “gottcha!” As I was backing out from under the bed I seen a pair of tan rock hard legs walking out of the bathroom, my eyes trailed up to a smooth muscular thigh. Slowly raising my head, my eyes feasted on the lovely abdomen that had the perfectly carved V shape that led to his massive,
“Aww shit!”
Hitting my head on the table so hard the vase of flowers fell off. My eyes closed as I tried rubbing the pain away from my head he helped me up by my elbow laughing,
“Something have you distracted?”
I slowly opened one eye; there stood Duncan with his long brown wet tousled hair, wearing only a towel that was draped over his shoulders and the seam that rolled off of his body. Staring at him for a moment my eyes couldn’t resisted taking a ride on the Duncan express. Hey there is nothing wrong with appreciating a lovely view right! It’s no different than diving down the road and stopping for a moment to take in a lovely field of wild flowers, then driving off, I’m not getting out of the car to play, I’m just looking.
“Ummm, I was just getting my bag.”
I held up the bag,
“See got it.”
I stepped back as he stepped closer. With each step I took he took two more, he locked his eyes on mine, for the first time in decades I was nervous around a naked man around Duncan.
Still walking backwards,
“I didn’t think you would mind if I used your shower, it’s roomier than the other one.”
“No… I mean yeah sure no problem.”
I swallowed hard as my back hit the wall. Duncan place his hands on the wall leaving me trapped between his arms, he leaned into me and in his deep voice he whispered,
“So Lillian have I changed much since you seen me last?”
I felt my heart racing,
“aaaa no, no not at all…. You still look… yeah you look lovely.”
I ducked under his arm, and headed for the door,
“I need to get back on these files,”
I held up the bag, he grinned at me, I pointed toward the office,
“Those files.”
I opened the door and looked back as I went to step out of the room,
“Oh Duncan, wet doesn’t look half bad on you either.”
Shutting the door behind me I leaded against it for a moment and took a deep breath,
“Damn the Godds were good to that man!”

Best wishes,

~Author Jennifer Labelle~
