Good morning everyone… I do hope you’re having a great day so far. Today I’m talking with fellow author, V. Steele. We actually met well over a year ago through my blog. It’s crazy the way we just clicked. She writes racier books than I do, but we have the same concept of writing. So, without further ado, here’s the interview that we did over the weekend.
S: Good morning V.
V: Morning Steph, how’s it going with you?
S: It’s great. Let’s get down the nitty gritty. When’s the 3rd book coming out in the My Prodigy Trilogy coming out? I love this Trilogy, so I do have a personal reason as well as professional to ask this.
V: (Softly laughs) Well, it’s coming out early summer. I’ve been working on another manuscript that is part of the Chasing Cowboys series. But I do plan on working on the 3rd book soon. The cover is in the works now.
S: I can’t wait to see it. Hope to get a sneak preview when it’s done. Tell us a little about your work in progress. I do love cowboys.
V: Cowboys are fun to write about. The newest book in the series is called “My Obsessed Cowboy”. This has been such a fun book to write. It’s the story of a young woman and her cowboy. She loves him but he takes it too far. She can’t take the obsessive behavior so she leaves town. But as with any obsession, it doesn’t stop there. It’s going to have an interesting conclusion that hopefully leaves you excited and ready to find a obsessed cowboy.
S: That sounds pretty interesting. When should we expect to see this book published. I can’t wait to see the cover design.
V: I hope to have it out this Spring. This cover is also in the works. I’ve played with a couple of different ideas, but ultimately it’s the designer who works the magic with my ideas.
S: Since I’ve had the chance to read some of this manuscript, can you give us just a little sliver of the story without giving away too much?
V: Oh yes, that’s a great idea. Here goes:
That night when he took her home she decided to tell him they had to cool it. When he pulled up to the walkway in front of the house she grabbed his hand as he went to get out. “Kyle, let’s talk a minute.”
“Alright babe, what’s up?” He caressed her hand and she had to close her eyes to keep her body from overtaking her brain yet again.
“Kyle, we need to take a break from one another.”
His head snapped up. “What do you mean, a break? Who is it? Who’s trying to sneak into my territory?” He moved closer and the look in his eyes was murderous.
“There’s nobody else, we just need to take a breather.”
“Why? I thought you enjoyed our time together.” Suddenly she saw something different in his eyes. She couldn’t figure it out, but she knew it was dangerous.
“I have enjoyed the time we’ve spent together, but truthfully I can’t handle your possessiveness.” She had to be truthful.
“I’m not possessive. Is it wrong to love so much that you want to keep that person close. That’s how much I love you Tess.” He kissed her hand and squeezed it.
“Kyle you don’t realize that you’re acting possessive when you say I can’t talk to another man. We have several cowboys that work on this ranch and they are my friends.”
“I don’t like you talking to other men because I don’t like to share.”
“You’re not sharing anything, they are just friends.”
“I see the way they look at you. I’m not blind Tess.”
She pulled her hand out of his and opened the truck door. “Just think about what I’ve said.”
He opened his door and ran around to where she stood. “Baby, don’t walk away like this.”
“Like what Kyle. I’m just going home.” She threw up her hands in frustration.
Well, that’s a small snippet of a pivotal point in the first of the book.
S: Since I’ve read past this point, I can tell you this does pull you into the story. I want to thank you for this interview and the snippet from your newest work.
V: Thanks for this chance to talk about my work. Also thanks for the help with all of my publishing questions that I’ve bombarded you with over the last year.
S: It’s been fun. I can’t wait for the new releases.
Well, I hope you guys enjoyed a small look into what’s up with V. Steele. She has several books out and many more to come. Check her out at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and many other retailers.
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
