I’ve been sitting on this fun interview with Arlene Webb for the last few weeks! I am so thrilled that her story for Decadent Publishing’s Prepper Romance line is out today! (and that I can finally share her doomsday quiz)
Falling for Water
by Arlene Webb
I am thankful we made it through 12/21/12 😀 mostly because there are so many books I have on my to be read pile! <g> I already asked the authors of the first 2 Preppers Romances these extremely important questions. Click HERE to see D.L. Jackson’s answers and HERE to see Barbara Elsborg’s quiz results. 😉

Choose your answer and explain why
1. How is the world most likely to end?
A. Zombie apocalypse
Not sure, but it seems clichéd and should have happened by now.
B. Creature from the black lagoon on a rampage
The black lagoon dried up when they invented the SUV. 😀
C. Natural disaster ie. flood/fire/mosquitoes etc
Nah. Have boats, firemen are cool, and I’m a big fan of chemical pest control
D. Alien plague
Bingo. I just hope we mutate into another world as awesome as this one.
Explanation: See notes in red ink. 😉
2. What are you doing to prepare for disasters?
A. Stocking up on non perishable foods
B. Building a bunker or other safe house
C. Learning to shoot the heads off zombies
D. Saving postage stamps
E. Other I’m pretty much screwed
Explanation:I like fresh foods, hit my thumb when I try building anything, don’t own a gun, and am struggling to remember what postage stamps are.
3. What are your chances of surviving if it’s a zombie apocalypse kind of apocalypse ?
A. High (I’m a good shot)
B. Fair to middling (I’m sneaky)
C. Low (zombies? Aaaghgh)
D. Zilch! The answer to question 2 sums it up.
Explanation: I’m lazy.
4. What would you miss most if the tech fails because of an EMP pulse and we are back in the stone age… well, at least it’ll feel that way.
C. Coffee maker
D. Electric blanket
Explanation: If I have Will Smith, I don’t need an electric blanket. Caffeine increases brain activity, certainly not a good thing with hungry zombies around. Getting back into riding a bike is like riding a bike, correct?
5. Which of these people would you let in your bunker for safety and why?
A. Justin Beiber Seriously? rotflol Yep! I had to ask 😛
B. Chuck Norris
C. Kate Beckinsale
D. Kate Middleton
E. Will Smith No doubt. I am Legend, right?
Explanation: As far as I’m concerned, choosing a guy like Will Smith doesn’t need explanation.
Me: Oh! Last but not least, sum up your book twitter style 140 characters or less. Yes, this is a survival skill. Go!
Obsessive compulsive Cassi can’t believe she’s a terrorist suspect, and her only ray of hope is the cop she’s fallen for who’s willing to give his all to keep her alive.
rotflol I love your answers! I am so with you and I totally think if worse comes to worse- you, me and Barbara need to hide behind D.L. She’ll save us. 😀
I am so glad your book Falling for Water is here to welcome us to the beginning of 2013.
Happy New Year!

If you are like me… You might be unfamiliar with the term Prepper. Here’s what Decadent say’s about their New series…
If a disaster struck, would you be prepared? If you had five minutes to leave your home with everything needed to re-start your life, could you? If the world ended, would you?
Preppers are a growing and diverse group that some even call a ‘sub-culture’. But most preppers are just average Americans who simply have a plan for self-sufficiency and survival in case a minor or major disaster happens. They have extra food and water on hand and a bag packed in case they need to get away fast. Some convert old missile silos into bunkers in case of global pandemic or nuclear war, but most are more practical and simply learn or apply the basic skills of survival that our grandparents’ generation used in everyday life. Californians have earthquakes, New England and the Gulf coast have hurricanes, the Midwest—tornadoes. Are you prepared?
Decadent Publishing is tapping into that sub-culture to bring you a line of Prepper Romances. They are sexy, fun, sometimes suspenseful , and always entertaining stories with a little bit of ‘prepper’ thrown in for some added flavor.

He stared at her, his expression wary. “And I’m thrilled you’re so into evolution, variation, and moving toward different things. I…er…just wondered, do you have a problem with saliva?”
“Saliva? What the hell are you talking about?”
Ray tried for gentle and slow, but the moment his lips locked onto hers it felt like he had to make this the kiss of a lifetime or she’d slip through his fingers and disappear. She’d either run screaming from yet another bully who took advantage of a vulnerable state, or she’d fall through the cracks of the justice system and out of his reach.
His careful exploration, the tip of tongue easing along the seams of her mouth, forced his lust into an easy, steady climb as lips meshed, escalating on the roller coaster scale to maybe a five, a first-time kiss like when a boy walks a girl to her door.
Forget that. It was no-hold-back time. He was too into the taste and feel of this woman to strive for less, and he had to bring her over the edge with him. Plunge down and down into the world-is-about-to-end type kiss. A kiss that’d stay with her, marking her as his own.
