T.G.I.F. You'll! Please welcome author Juniper Bell of Go Deep, joining us on her blog tour for a post about winter and even a giveaway!
Where I live in Alaska, winter is well on its way. It’s beginning to frost overnight and we’ve had to scrape the windshield a couple times. Granted, winter starts early here and lasts a loooooong time. Pretty soon, we’ll have several feet of snow and only a few hours of light .
So to help myself face the prospect of all those months of cold and darkness, I decided to focus on the positive aspects of winter. You know, the things I like about it.
Nice try, but the last time I did any downhill skiing I shredded my ACL. Now it’s cross-country only, and I’m nervous about that too.
2. Hot chocolate by a roaring fire.
Now we’re getting somewhere. Chocolate always works. But that fire? When you have to chop down the tree, chainsaw it into rounds, then split those logs into firewood with a maul, that fire represents a lot of hard work.
3. Long nights perfect for writing.
Yes, but they’re also perfect for sleeping. I always get lots of good, deep sleep once winter sets in. I’m keeping my fingers crossed about the writing.
4. The Wild Nights winter festival. During this crazy midwinter weekend, the town of Wild operates by one rule: “Anything goes, nothing counts.” It’s a way to let off steam. Like Las Vegas with snow.
Sadly, this festival is completely fictional and exists only in my series set in Wild, Alaska. GO DEEP is the second book in this series. Sure, Beth and Gavin have a great time exploring their sexual fantasies during Wild Nights … but I’m unable to attend that event except in my imagination.
Definitely a good one. I love Christmas, especially when I’ve finished my shopping early and I’m not six years behind on my Christmas cards and I’m not worried about making meals for anyone and … okay, what else?
6. Sexy long underwear.
Yes, I know that’s a contradiction in terms. But I’m getting desperate here. There must be something to like about winter!
7. Upcoming trip to Hawaii
What about you? What do you like about winter? Help me out here. ;-) If you leave me a comment with something you like about winter, I’ll put you in the running for a copy of GO DEEP and a $5 Amazon gift certificate. Thanks for joining me!
A standalone sequel to Go Wild.
Beth is the shy, dreamy type. No one guesses at the wild sexual thoughts she hides behind that quiet façade. She doesn’t even share her secret longings with her husband.
Gavin loves his wife, but he’s tired of living in a marriage in which neither he nor Beth reveal their true desires. When Gavin sees Beth’s response to an erotic bondage photo in her framing shop, he jumps at the opportunity to break through her barriers.
He accepts an invitation to a showcase match for the amateur hockey team he coaches during Wild Nights, the infamous winter festival during which “anything goes, nothing counts.” But he’s opened a sensual Pandora’s box—Beth has some surprises of her own. When she meets Eagle, a free-spirited Wild resident, she knows he’s the perfect man to help enact her erotic fantasies. And once they go deep, there’s no going back.
Juniper Bell lives with her brand new husband in a cabin in Alaska with sporadic running water and a spectacular view of glaciers. She wound up in the frozen north after leaving her career as a stressed-out Los Angeles TV writer. Luckily, her love for writing survived the move, and she soon discovered a surefire way of heating up those long winter nights. She writes erotic romances for Samhain and Ellora’s Cave. She also spends time dreaming of the day she can move to Hawaii.
