Welcome to Mutt or Meow Monday!
Mutt or Meow Monday is where we interview the author’s animal friends instead of interviewing the author. Let’s see what the animals have to say!
It’s great to have you here today.
Please introduce yourself.
Hi! I’m Ammon Ra Tigris—AKA Tigger and I’m a Bengal. My family could not have predicted how aptly they named me--I am the king of bouncing, trouncing, and climbing. On everything and everyone.
What’s your favorite book by Kerry Adrienne and why?
My favorite book she has written used to be Beautiful One. I thought she was writing about me. Then, I found out she was writing about two Greek dudes in Ancient Athens, and well, I was pissed.
Do you ever interrupt Kerry Adrienne for attention when she’s trying to write? Does she stop and give you attention, brush you off, or bribe you with treats?
She’s usually prying me off the top of the monitors or pulling my talons out of her back. If she doesn’t play fetch when I bring my toys to her, I get really upset and bite her ankles. If she happens to be asleep when I want to play, I bite her on the nose then wash her face until she either wakes up and plays or loses a layer of skin.
Has Kerry Adrienne ever based one of her characters on you? Which one?
Not yet, though she’s threatened to base a Were-Tiger/half-banshee serial killer on me. Harrumph
What does Kerry Adrienne do to celebrate when she finishes writing a book?
She usually sleeps. Which is fine with me since I like to use her as a mattress. Unless I want to play, then she has to cover her head with a pillow.
What do you wish Kerry Adrienne would do with her writing time instead of writing?
Sleep, of course. And play with me. Grow organic catnip and hunt for fresh meat to feed me. Put cat porn on the tv. Umm…and be at my complete beck and call 24/7.
What’s the best part about living with an author?
She’s always home to turn on the tub faucet so I can play in the water.
What’s the worst part about living with an author?
She’s always home and watching me so I can’t explore as much as I would like. And she has five other cats. All underlings to me, of course. Bow to my awesomeness…
Catnip, toys or scratching post? Toys! Soft ones with catnip. Grrrrr….all mine!
Head rubs, belly rubs or butt scratches? All of the above. And lots of kisses.
Back cover blurb:
Kallistos, a shy playwright, has been chosen to compete at the Great Dionysia festival in Athens. His plays are strong, but he faces Sophocles, the man who has won almost every contest. Kallistos, the beautiful one, has eschewed intimacy—yet the dark Alexios pierces his armor with philosophies he’s never considered, and he falls hard.
Alexios, a shepherd, aspires to be an actor in Athens. His trip plunges him into a plot of deceit and lies when Sophocles hires him to sabotage his competition. Sophocles promises money and a part on stage—but challenges Alexios’ beliefs and honor.
Though uncomfortable with the lies, Alexios woos Kallistos, finding himself deeply drawn to the man. As the performances near, Alexios must decide which he wants more—his lover, or his lifelong dream of fame and a career. While Kallistos faces issues of trust and forgiveness, and must ponder where life is truly lived—on stage or in reality.
Inside Scoop: This book contains hot, sexy scenes of M/M interaction in a public bathhouse and in private. Come on in, the water’s fine.
Kerry loves history and spends large amounts of time wondering about people who lived and walked on Earth in the past. She’s a mom to three daughters, six cats and various small animals.
