AL: Hi Mechele Thanks for being in the “Author Spotlight” this week.

Mechele: Thank you so much for having me! I’m excited to be here.

AL: So, tell us what’s happening with you.

Mechele: I just returned from Savannah! Went there with my youngest’s Girl Scout troop. Had a wonderful time.

AL: You have many sizzling tales for us to read. If possible, please pick one and tell us all about it.

Mechele: Seek and You Shall Find is my first release from Liquid Silver. It’s the story of a prince who must find his way to safety and the irresistible woman who will become whatever he most desires. Blackguard has to fight his attraction to Annalisse as he ushers them to safety while Annalisse finds out the woman that Blackguard wants isn’t that different from the woman she is.

AL: What new works are you deep into?

Mechele: I’m working on a story about a geek. LOL. It’s about a computer programmer and the woman who has his heart but doesn’t know it.

AL: What got you jumping feet first into erotica?

Mechele: I always liked reading books where the bedroom door was open. Hated books where you weren’t sure if they had sex or not. This led to me keeping the bedroom door open when I write. I find that so much can happen in the bedroom to move the relationship along and I think it helps take the writing of the characters deeper. At least for me as an author.

AL: What do you like best about writing? What is your least favorite thing?

Mechele: My favorite thing is making up my own universe. I love the power of creation. My least favorite thing is commas. They are my bane!

AL: What do you hope for your writing career in the next few years? Any goals that you have yet to obtain that you have set for yourself?

Mechele: I’d like to see my pace pick up a little. I’ve slowed down to focus on the books and also this past year on my oldest before she moves to middle school. I’d like to see my writing take more chances. I keep saying I would love to write a thriller or romantic suspense one day but haven’t yet.

AL: All right Mechele, let’s get personal … Sometimes people envision an author’s life as being really glamorous. I like to set them straight, so tell us what’s the most unglamorous thing you’ve done in the past week?

Mechele: LOL. Oh yes, very glamorous. Cleaning the litter box, cleaning up cat puke and pooper scooping the back yard from the dog rank among my unglamorous items. And cleaning the toilet. Ick.

AL: If I asked your best friend what type of person you are, what would he or she tell me?

Mechele: I would hope they would say I’m a good listener and kind-hearted.

AL: You’re in line at the movies. Which one do you go see, The Last Airbender or Eclipse? Why?

Mechele: The Last Airbender. *ducks* I’m not a big Twilight fan. I’ve tried reading the first book and saw the first movie. For whatever reason, it just doesn’t appeal. Now the Last Airbender looks intriguing with a boy who grows into his powers.

AL: What's your favorite music?

Mechele: LOL. Right now, I’ve been listening to a lot of Jonathon Coulton and Paul and Storm. I’m not sure what to call what they play. They write humorous (especially Paul and Storm) and geeky (definitely Coulton). Coulton has a lot of science in his music. I tend to listen to alternative (Green Day, Eve 6, Bowling for Soup (even their kids’ music) or country (Sugarland).

AL: Silly question… You’re the actress in a must see blockbuster movie that everyone’s been waiting all summer for. A) What’s the movie about? B) Who’s your character? C) And who’s your leading man?

Mechele: The movie is either a futuristic romance or a romantic comedy. It’s about a ship trying to make it out in space (like Serenity but not exactly) or a comedy about a writer pulled into intrigue (maybe spying). My character is the shy geek turned heroine. In the futuristic she’d be a scientist. In the comedy, she’d be a writer. *cough* my leading man is played by Nathan Fillion.

AL: Please share a favorite quote(s) with us.

Mechele: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”—Albert Einstein

AL: Thanks so much for joining us this week, Mechele.

Mechele: Thank you so much for having me. I do appreciate it.

FEATURED TITLE: SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND

Blurb:

Blackguard only wants to get back to the war his planet is fighting, but instead, he's picking up a woman. A seeker morph. She's been promised to him to cement an alliance his world desperately needs. When he's betrayed and all his men are killed, he's forced to flee without his promised morph.

Only a pod opens in the back of his shuttle.

The seeker morph, Annalisse, emerges. She's awake from stasis and is now in a sexual heat. Her body is demanding that she bond, and Blackguard is only too willing to fulfill her needs, except that he also must keep them safe from the enemies who betrayed him. Annalisse will become whatever the man she bonds with desires, only she finds Blackguard wants a woman much like she already is.

It's a race to a communications array that will allow him to get them off the planet in one piece. But once they lift off, Blackguard must resume his duties as ruler, which requires him to abandon Annalisse.

Will Blackguard seek out the woman he never knew he sought? Will Annalisse find the man who allowed her to stay true to herself?

Excerpt:

Then, with a downturn of the shock wave, he crashed.

On the planet of his betrayer.

His head bleeding, he cursed everyone involved from here to eternity as his shuttle skidded to a stop.

They were all dead.

He struggled to look behind him at the roaring inferno. No one could have gotten out of there alive.

If he'd stayed, he'd be dead now, too.

He swallowed. Now was not the time to dwell on the losses. Now was the time to get off his ass and back to his planet. There, he could sort things out and figure what his next move should be.

Vengeance.

The pod that he'd seen the crane load started beeping from behind him.

"Shut up." He tried to circumvent failing systems to get the shuttle back up in the air as he took off his harness. A no-go. Too much damage had been done to the small craft. "Shut up." The persistent beeping annoyed the hell out of him as he kept trying to access the systems even as they failed on him. He might be stuck at the crash site. He couldn't even get a radio signal out from this small of a ship to the other ship unless he cleared the atmosphere. It would be several more hours before they'd launch a rescue on their own.

He drew his phaser and turned around, ready to shoot the offending pod's controls to silence the beeping, only to find it had opened. The crash must have broken down the locks on the thing. It had unlocked whether he wanted it to or not. "This isn't a good time." Watch it be something alive like parsec beetles, a delicacy for some races, or psi-cats, a pet. Just what he needed all over the dying shuttle.

The cover slipped open as the beeping subsided.

Blackguard kept his gun trained on the pod, even as the heady scent of spices met his nose. What could it be, a spice delivery? He turned toward the back, facing all the way around, to get a better look.

A woman sat up with a stretch of her body. Her pert mouth yawned. A naked, beautiful woman lay in the pod. With big breasts. Long dark hair. Green eyes. Big breasts. He couldn't tear his gaze away from her. He reacted as if he'd been struck in the gut with something heavy. Could hardly get breath out of his lungs.

He blinked, not having expected a person to be in the pod, especially not this lovely creature. The gun shifted downward. Even with the surprise and the circumstances, lust filled him at her appearance. His cock tightened. He'd never seen a female so delicate looking. So beautiful.

He'd never scented anything like her either. Something resided below the spice's scent, which had to be her. His cock rose up as his heart pounded. The adrenaline raised by his getaway channeled to his libido. His whole body reacted to this woman and wanted things with her, that even in his wickedest days, he couldn't imagine. Until now.

He shook his head to clear the fog. This was a bad time for arousal.

Her gaze centered on him as an unsteady smile graced her lips. "You must be Blackguard. I'm Annalisse. Yours to do with what you will." Her voice sounded throaty. Husky. It ran along his spine like a rolling river with a sharp dip down to his heavy cock.

He almost groaned at the impact of her words. Annalisse. Beauty had a name. His arousal grew tenfold, which hardly seemed possible. Oh, yeah.

Maybe it was a good time after all.

Hi Mechele,

Enjoyed your interview, love the quote you picked. The Settler's Mine series is one of my favorites for futuristic sci/fi, and Seek and You Shall Find sounds like another great addition to the genre. Wishing you mega sales.

Have a wonderful week.

Fun reading interview. I'm hooked already by the geek work in progress. Looking forward to it.

Armenia said...

Hi Michelle and Ann, very nice interview and I enjoyed that one.

Michelle, your WIP sounds a little bit like your profile on your blog...hhhmmm..is your husband the inspiration behind this story?

LOL, I love geeks. My favorite geek story is SEP's Hot Shot with Yank Yankowski as the sexy computer geek. Well, he wasn't sexy at first, but after his girlfriends' makeovers he became quite the good looking hunk.

Seek and You Shall Find sounds like a great read. I enjoyed the excerpt and it sounds like Blackguard has his hands full with Annalisse.

joder said...

I really enjoyed the excerpt and the sci-fi premise. I'm a big fan of futuristic/sci-fi stories and the intriguing worlds it brings forth.

And I like geeks. There's that saying that the geeks will inherit the Earth and with all their smarts that's probably true. I also have an obsession with Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, he cracks me up. So, yet another expression of my love of all things geek.

Mechele Armstrong said...

Hey Armenia,

Thanks for stopping by! LOL yes, hubby definitely helped with the geek stories. He said to tell people it's been like 20+ years of research on those. Blackguard does have his hands full! No doubt.

Mechele Armstrong said...

Hey Joder,

Thanks for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed the excerpt.

I love Big Bang Theory. I don't watch a lot of TV but that's one show I don't miss. Sheldon is something else.
