I adore the girls of the Kiss Me anthology! I met them around Valentine’s Day on twitter . Codi Gary and Jaclyn Hatcher have had The Book Tart Quickie treatment. 😉 They are all three full of the awesome!
Today is Cheryl Harper’s book birthday for her new book Stuck On You . I am in love! She is a complete hoot and I would totally wear a leopard swimsuit with her and rock a feather headdress if she did it too. lol
I can’t wait to visit the Rock’N’Rolla Hotel and read Stuck On You! Make sure you enter the contest *points down* and enjoy the madlibs too. lol

Me: Cheryl! You’re here you’re here! *sings* Happy Book Birthday to you, happy book birthday too youuuuu happy book birthday darlin’ Cheryl. Happy book birthday too-oo you! Cha-cha cha 😀 I have cupcakes! *Kermit flail* And I may have eaten a few already. Sit down hon and let’s chat boys and books! ‘Specially Stuck On You.
I adored your Kiss Me anthology with Codi Gary and Jaclyn Hatcher. I loved all the stories and have been eagerly waiting for more. I love your snark and heart and humor in your short story, Love Me Tender and bonus! it’s set around an Elvis themed hotel! *bounces on couch* Sooo Stuck On You is the first full length story in your Rock’N’Rolla Hotel series. Share a bit about it. Starting…. Now!
Cheryl: Thanks so much for having me! Stuck On You is a mash-up reflecting my pop culture excesses. I dreamt up the Rock’n’Rolla Hotel as a place to strand the couple in “Love Me Tender.” As it usually does with me, the flake of an idea really snowballed and now I have this King-sized hotel which is perfect for some serious happily ever after. My heroine, Laura, is a waitress in a showgirl’s uniform with the heart of an accountant (but she might look a little like Kelly Monaco doing Dancing With the Stars). My hero, KT, is a ruggedly handsome and charming fish out of water who needs a little help finding his way. And around them…yeah, it’s like the American Idol of celebrity look-alikes, Elvis and otherwise. I hope it’s fun, funny, and sweet. Those are my favorite! Plus, there’s special promotional ebook pricing—99 CENTS! Give it a try while this price lasts. I hope you’ll love it!
Me: *squee!* That is a great sale! *click* all mine now… My precious!
Sooo…. Did you do any silly research things like try to wear a feather headdress or practice your imitation of Elton John? Do you have a favorite Elvis movie? Do you like peanut butter and banana sandwiches? Have you been to Vegas? *gasps for breath*
Cheryl: Ahem…well, it’s like this. I had only the basics in my head. The Elvis Googling has been intense. Feather headdresses, no, but if I had one, I’d totally wear it. Elton John, no. I do no impressions, but I do like wacky sunglasses. Favorite Elvis movie? Not really, but I have learned there’s a whole lot of hate in the world for Clambake. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches…I’ve made a study of these and my results are up on the blog this week. And Vegas…yes, I’ve been there. Of course, I can’t tell you about it. Because…well, you know.
Me: *looks for pillow to bop Cheryl with* gahhh! Such a tease. *splutters* I mean I know the Vegas things stay in Vegas. but. But. BUT! lol I’ll just have to imagine. 😛 I support The Elvis Googling! lol I support googling. *nods* It’s good to learn stuffs though sometimes I want a magic brain eraser! 😛
Please say you have more in store for the Rock’N’Rolla Hotel? *licks frosting off finger* I’m kinda messy…Oh! Oh! What do we get next from you? I know, this book birthday’s not even over and we want more. 😛
Cheryl: Next up is Can’t Help Falling in Love. In it, Tony, the tattooed ex-military hotel manager, faces off against Randa, a hotel heiress who’s got her own plans for the hotel. That’s coming up in August. And in December’s Santa, Bring My Baby Back to Me, you’ll meet Charlie. He’s been roped into performing weddings in the hotel.
Now let’s get down to business! These are things The Peoples need to know! Lol or really… me!
I just made up a word vegasative please make up a definition and use the word in a sentence *giggle*
Cheryl: Vegastive: able to blend in on the Strip
In my leopard-print swimsuit and feathered headdress, no one can argue that I am Vegasative.
Me:*chokes on cupcake crumbs and Cheryl helpfully thumps my back* You’ve gone native! bwahahahaha Vegasative! Perfect! 😉
If you had to choose between writing while wearing Elvis sideburns or while wearing a leopard print swimsuit, what would you pick and how could it help with your writing process?
Cheryl: I always wear a leopard-print swimsuit when I write. How did you know? Mainly it helps because I have to do less laundry, and I am a fan of anything that means less laundry. Plus, it goes better with the headdress I’ll be purchasing soon. Elvis sideburns are a danger. Just ask Lucky (*cough* Call out to the Kiss Me anthology…holla!).
Me: Holla-back ;P I love Kiss Me! *head/desk* I need to write a review.
Oh! I am down with any less laundry ideas too. 😉
You didn’t think you were getting away without playing madlibs did you? *grabs Cheryl’s hem* come back! It’s fun… honest 😀 Just give me some words and make them as silly or sassy as you like.
Cheryl: I LOVE THIS SO HARD!!! Madlibs (and smiling) are my favorite! I’m channeling the King.
VERB (PAST TENSE)
Me: *Snorts* Love this!
Me: *singing* You aint never caught a peacock and you ain’t no banana of mine. 😀
