Todays special guest is...


Thanks so much for coming by Lorelie, glad to have you.

LC: Thanks for having me. 

Prepared to go through the wringer lol...

LC Sure fire way.


PB: Why did you pick or rather why did the genre pick you that you write in? 
LC: I write romantic suspense and that’s what I enjoy reading most of the time, but also enjoy authors such as Harlan Coban and Andrew Gross.




2. How long does it usually take you to write your books? 

LC: About 6-8 months roughly, with lots of time for research, revisions, edits and plotting.


PB: Where do you get your inspiration? 

LC: A lot of times from day dreaming.


PB: Name at least two things about writing that you love/hate (can be one of each) 
LC: I love getting edits back from the publisher. It’s another ‘take’ on my story. And I hate when my characters take over and keep changing the plot.


PB:  You're faced with someone whose looking to break into the industry - what would you tell them?  Be patient, it takes time to get your name out there and to get followers.


PB: Do you have any writing snacks to feed your ‘muse’? 
LC: Yes, who doesn’t love chocolate? I love the mini Milky Way bars.
PB: Now there's a snack I can relate to. Be great to have a large bowl next to my desk all the time lol.

PB:  I hear you have two nooks out. Can you tell me what they’re about? 

LC: DEADLY DECEPTION and DEADLY REVENGE are the first two in the ‘Deadly’ series. They are romantic suspense about human trafficking. I became interested in human trafficking when I read an article in the local newspaper explaining that the local task force (didn’t know we had one) had performed a successful sting operation. It was happening in my town or my own back yard so-to-speak and I never knew. It really hit close to home. Since then I have become an advocate to top human trafficking so all the books of this series carries a message. There is also lots of sexual tension between the hero and heroine and real sex that keeps you turning the pages to the happy ever after ending.

PB: What’s your favorite book of all time?
LC: Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I know it’s old but it is still the best. I’ve read it over and over again.

PB: What’s a good book you’ve read recently?
LC: HUSH by Cherry Adair.

PB: What’s next on your writing agenda?
LC: I’m currently working on Deadly Deliverance, the 3rd in the series and from an investigator’s pov.  So far it is exciting.

PB: Where can your followers find you? 

LC:My website: www.loreleiconfer.com or my blog: www.loreleiconfer.blogspot.com or email me at loreleiconfer@tampabay.rr.com

Love the idea of bringing human trafficking to the public attention! And in a romance is even better!

Please welcome our special guest...

Mrs. Frances MacKenmy, late of Virginia.
Welcome Mrs. MacKenny

F: Just call me Frannie, most folks do.
Me: Okay, so Frannie, tell us a little about yourself? Where are you from?

F: Why I was born right here in Virginia. Born, raised, married...and murdered. This plantation was one of the largest cotton producers in the 1850's, at the peak of production we had one hundred slaves. Pappa kept the cotton selling and made a handsome profit. Kept the family name blemish free, for the most part.

Me: Married and murdered? But you're flesh and blood - aren't you?
F: Goodness no. I was married on a beautiful June day in 1859 to Robert MacKenny. It wasn't a match of my choosing, but I did as my father bid me. Wed the cad and on our wedding night he and the harlot he married after my death poisoned me. Imagine if you will feeling your life ebbing away as you watch your younger sister and your husband embracing. I was rather angered by it. When I woke, I was here, in this place, …

Crash into Love by Sofia Grey

Road Trippin’ – by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Have you ever been between homes? Not just for a day or two, but for weeks on end? It’s a weird feeling. When I moved halfway round the world, a few years ago, I lived in a motel for a month while I house hunted. For that period, I didn’t actually have a home and it was strangely uplifting. I could live anywhere I chose, within reason. I could reinvent myself, start a brand new life. The possibilities felt endless, and for the first time in my life I could understand why some people become drifters.
The Lyrics of Road Trippin’ by the Red Hot Chili Peppers sum up this mood:
Road trippin' with my two favorite allies Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies It's time to leave this town It's time to steal away Let's go get lost
And the video is perfect! http://youtu.be/11GYvfYjyV0

What I love about Halloween

In today's world Halloween is often a time to dress up and go door to door looking for treats. Its sort of a time which over the years has become commercialized...and honestly that isn't my favorite part of the holiday.

No, I love Halloween for the meaning behind it...for the celebrations of life, of the harvest...for the myths and the legends, for the chance to be someone else for a few hours. Its the ultimate expression of a false face created ages and ages ago for a specific reason. When masks and costumes were designed to ward off the evil spirits which rose from the grave.

Regardless of its origins (and yes there is controversy about that) Halloween is a great time to celebrate family. To gather to carve pumpkins, and make treats (not so much anymore), to play pranks on others, and to really just experience life and joy.  For me, Halloween is a time when the paranormal is more readily accepted...when ghosts and goblins roam about with the living and it will always have a…
