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.
My name is Yin and I’m a five-year-old terrier mix. The family is still pretty new to me. I only picked them out about four months ago. But I think I’ll keep them.
My name is Chase and I’m a fifteen-year-old whippet. Life was pretty good here until they decided I needed a friend. You need another dog to keep you company, they said. You’ll love it, they said.
Do you ever interrupt Chandra Ryan for attention when she’s trying to write? Does she stop and give you attention, brush you off, or bribe you with treats?
Yin: Interrupt? Me? Never! I’m a helpful dog. I lay on her arms to keep her warm and paw at the keyboard. She’s always going on about how many words she needs to write so I’m doing my part. And the sooner she gets those words in, the sooner she throws the ball. It’s not like the actual words matter. I’m sure her editor loves my contributions to the story.
Chase: She writes? Huh… Must be during my naptime. Though I don’t know why anyone would rather write than nap from 9am-6pm. Really. When does she get her extra nine hours of sleep in?
Does Chandra Ryan ever read her writing to you? Do you like it?
Chase: She mumbles and curses quite a bit during my naps? Does that count?
Yin: Of course it does. That’s her way of asking us for our insight. You should really help her out the way I do. She likes it.
What does Chandra Ryan do to celebrate when she finishes writing a book?
Chase: She gets a sweet treat from the store. Which is pretty awesome because she shares. Well, sometimes she shares. Leaving the container out on the countertop where I can reach it is sharing, right? I mean, she knows I can reach it.
Yin: Funny. I don’t remember any special treats. You wouldn’t be holding out on me by any chance would you, Chase?
What do you wish Chandra Ryan would do with her writing time instead of writing?
Yin: Love on me, of course. And really, I don’t know why she prefers typing away on that computer. What does it have that I don’t?
Chase: She really needs to catch up on her sleep. I’m concerned about her. Eight hours a night just isn’t enough.
What’s the best part about living with an author?
Yin: Since she works from home, she gets to spend her days with me.
Chase: With us! I was here first, you know.
Yin: Please, you didn’t even know she writes.
Chicken, bacon or cheese?
Yin and Chase in unison: Bacon? Did somebody say bacon!?!
Butt sniffin’, leg humpin’, fluffy toys?
Yin: Sounds like a good time to me.
Chase: I think we’re supposed to pick one of the three.
Yin: No. No one would be so mean as to make us choose between three of the greatest pleasures in the world!
Back cover blurb:
Universal Defiance, Book Three
Julian hadn’t wanted to become a genetically enhanced soldier. His father, the colonel, expected it. But when he sees his commanding officer for his first mission, he admits there might be some perks. Commander Gates is a wet dream wrapped up in a standard-issue military uniform.
He knows better than to screw around with an officer though. The last thing he wants is the complication of a relationship. But when the mission goes sideways and soldiers start dying, he realizes sex might be the best way to simplify things, especially given the scorching encounters Gates provides. A relationship though? They’ll have to survive the mission before they can worry about that.
Inside Scoop: Gates and Julian share some super-hot male/male action on a planet where gruesome monsters deal out grisly death.
A Romantica® sci-fi erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Being from a rather nomadic family, Chandra Ryan loves to travel and meet people. But she’s found that sometimes, like when you’re stuck inside because of a good old-fashioned Southwestern heat wave, you have to make do. Fortunately for her and her loving family, who don’t like seeing her suffer from cabin fever, she’s found creating new people and places equally as fascinating. Also, you’re a lot less likely to spill your ice tea.
