Me: Dana! Dana Lorraine! Come on in hon. Thank you for putting up with my spazzy self and rescheduling for Black Friday. (((hugs))) You rock!
Dana: Oh please…this worked out great Kat. I’d rather be here with you than braving the crowds of crazed shoppers. This is so much more fun.
Me:*nods* I agree! I’d much rather talk books and hot guys. 😉 Soooo *flops on couch* sit, sit. Want some leftover pie? Can I get you a drink? Water, coffee, cider… something festive?
Dana: Pie! Are you crazy? I think I ate my weight in it yesterday. I’d love something sweet and spiked if you have it.
Me: <g> lol We had a pie emergency! Most of my fam doestn’t really like pumpkin pie *gasp* and my mom thought we could do without it. BUT my Bookstore Beau wanted pumpkin as did one of my brother-in-laws. We got a pie from grandpa. Crisis averted!
*passes Dana her drink* I hope your Thanksgiving was amazing! What do you normally do? Turducken? Ham? 😀 My fam is Turkey and scalloped potatoes and green bean casserole!
Dana: Yum…scalloped potatoes—that sounds good. Thanksgiving is always a big production at my house. This year we hosted 27 people. And yes…it’s as crazy and as much work as you’re imagining but we love it. I roast a huge turkey and my hubs barbeques two smaller ones. My specialty dish is a yummy bacon, cheese and squash casserole. It’s always the first to go.
Me: 27!!! Nice! I thought our 12 was a crowd 😀 you might have one extra next year. I want to try BBQ turkey.
*licks whipped cream off fork and takes a deep breath* Are you scared of heights? Do you like fish? What’s your favorite color? How many fingers am I holding up? Do you believe in Santa? *gasps for breath* And how do you do with run on questions? 😛
Dana: Wow…I know it’s delish but you might want to step away from that pie. I think you’ve had enough sugar. LOL! Let’s see…heights make my heart flutter but I enjoy the thrill. Fish—yuck! I gravitate to pinks and reds. I’m guessing two on the fingers. And yes…I believe in the spirit of Santa. This world would be a better place if more people did, don’t you think?
Me: Yes! Excellent work hon. And DON’T Touch my pie! Ha! 😛
Oh! Oh! Congratulations on your debut story!!! Dying To Love Her. *sigh* Two delicious vampires and one scrumptious heroine. A match made in heaven. 😉 Tell me where the story came from. And if we can sign up for Empriva Fitness services?
Dana: Aww, thanks Kat! Everybody wants to know how I came up with the idea of a vampire run fitness center that treats its clients to steamy horizontal workouts and fat-burning orgasmic bites. My answer—wishful thinking! I hate to exercise but if there was a place like Empriva Fitness I’d be the first to sign up for a lifetime membership.
Here’s the blurb:
Me: Oh! Oh! What are you working on now? More in the Empriva Fitness world or something else?
Dana: I have two totally different stories vying for my attention. The first is set in the Empriva Fitness world. Gage, one of the yummy heroes, is not at all eager to settle down with his lifemate, Britain. Of course he still wants a chance to bed her. He asks his friend and co-worker, Drew, to help him see to Britain’s fitness needs.
The second is a friends-to-lovers story with a twist. Carter, my hunky builder has always loved Lacey…even when she was married to his younger brother. Now that she’s divorced, Carter is determined to prove to her that not all Jennings men are created equal.
Me: Ooooo! Yay! Well… before I let you get back to writing and the holiday bustle… I have a few more questions. I am a very nosy cat. 😀
Me: You are a doll! Please come back for a playdate anytime!
Dana: *big squeeze back* I’d love too. Thanks for having me on The Book Tart. You’re the best. *giant wave* Bye everybody.
PS. Don’t forget her contest! *waves down*
