Today I would like to welcome Taryn Elliot joining us with her and Cari Quinn's rockin' new release - Seduced. I loved this book and hope you do too! See my review of Seduced >HERE<
Kind of like a rock band, we had to do a lot of rehearsal to get this right. False starts, rewrites, adding a storyline, taking out a storyline as we got to know the members of the band—It’s hella hard work, but we can’t really describe just how fun this hard work has been.
This is our baby. From start to finish, we came up with the concept, the members of the band, the overall storyline that will pull through all five books, as well as the individual storylines for each band member.
We’ve both worked with editors in the past and have published with a few different houses in the ebook industry. But in this instance we wanted complete creative control. It’s scary from every aspect, but it’s ours and we’re damn proud of it. It’s freeing to write for yourself and ignore some of the preconceived ideas of what’s considered ‘right’ for a story. What if we want something different? What if there’s other readers out there that want something different?
It’s a gamble, but we’re willing to give it a try. That’s one of the best parts of self-publishing. We wanted to take a chance on something and we’ll own the story—for the good or the bad. Lost in Oblivion is right for US.
We hope that readers take a chance on us. These stories show the true love we have for the music AND the men and women that create it. SEDUCED is the first book in the series and definitely an introduction to that world. There was just too much of a story to tell about how the band formed to try and cram it all into the first book PLUS tell a romance. We didn’t want to cheat anyone so we thought…well, hell. Let’s try something different.
SEDUCED is the love story of a band. The good, the bad, the ugly and the awesome.
It’s gritty and told in TWO male points of view exclusively.
The subsequent stories in the series will be dual female and male, but this one just cried out for all the truth you could get in nearly 75,000 words.
And we really hope you’ll give it a try.
I swear the boys are worth it. Oh and the Pink Pixie otherwise known as Jazz. Can’t forget about our crazy little drummer mama. ;)
We also won’t keep you hanging long for followups. Deacon’s book, ROCKED, will be out late September and TWISTED will follow by the end of the year.
Thanks so much for having us and we hope you’ll enter our giveaway. And as always…ROCK ON!
