I am pleased to have Author Eve Langlais, here with us today. I hope you guys enjoy the interview and check out Eve's books.
Laurie-Hello Eve, Nice to have you here with us today. Would you please tell us a little about what you write?
Eve-I write a variety of romance genres - fantasy, paranormal, science fiction, erotica, BDSM contemporary. If I had to choose a favorite though, it would have to be paranormal. I especially love to write stories about heroines who aren't considered good girls but who manage to find love anyways. Take Lucifer's Daughter, releasing August 9th from Liquid Silver. Muriel really wants to find love but being the daughter of the most infamous demon in the world has made her search for '/the one' /almost impossible. But when she does find her man, watch out, because she proves bad girls know how to heat up the pages.
Laurie-Tell us about your latest release? Is it a series? If so do you know how many books your writing for this series?
Eve-I've got two series that have come out recently. I'll deal with my super popular Alien Mate series first. Alien Mate is a hot story of alien abduction where one big blue alien with abs to die for kidnaps a plump and feisty earthling for his mate. In Alien Mate 2, recently released from Amira Press, we meet a new hunky alien who has come to earth to collect his mate, the only problem is the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with isn't the one that was chosen for him. Given the wild success of this series, I'd wager a guess that many of us women harbor secret alien fantasies. Can there be anything more romantic than a super stud crossing the vast galaxy just to be with you? Sigh. And for all you Alien Mate lovers, just so you know the voices in my head are clamoring for a third story where this time the big blue hunk will be the one abducted instead.
Now to my newest series which begins with my August ninth release from Liquid Silver titled Lucifer's Daughter. 'Being Satan's daughter can be hell.' Expect to have your vision of Heaven and Hell redefined, and as my editor laughingly admitted, make you love Satan in his role as father. The sequel, titled Snowballs in Hell, will be coming out in a few months and not only deals with the repercussions of Hell freezing over, it also delves into the naughty world of threesomes. Yum.
Laurie-What’s two of the biggest things that influence your writing?
Eve-Wow, I'm not sure. I think my mood when I sit down to write affects the direction of my stories. And the second thing, probably noise levels. With summer here and the kids out of school writing a good solid two or three hours straight without interruption is a vague memory. I really can’t wait for September and some quiet time. LOL. I do love the little monkeys though distracting as they are.
Laurie-How long did it take you to publish your first book?
Eve-I sat down to write my first book ever titled Take A Chance in February 2009. I finished it in April of 2009 and I submitted it to a publisher. I got a prompt revise/resubmit which I quickly did and by August of 2009 Champagne Books offered me my very first contract. Take A Chance, a fantasy romance about a modern day librarian and a cursed wizard, was released in June of this year. It's a sweet fairy tale romance with magic, danger and of course an evil sorceress. Its sequel, title Chance's Game dealing with characters met in Take A Chance, releases in February of 2011. Meddlesome gods and a magical quest make that one a real treat.
Laurie-If you could give one tip for an upcoming writer. What would it be?
Eve-Write. You can spend a lot of time researching, asking questions, reading blogs and socializing, but the most important thing is to write and make sure you finish what you start.
Laurie-What are some of your favorite books you’ve read?
Eve-Gosh, we could be here all day. LOL. I am a voracious reader. I inhale books on an almost daily basis. I will admit to being a Twilight fan. I do love Meyer’s version of vampires and the way she built a great love story without ever really having any sex. That takes talent! Kresley Cole is a great alpha male writer. I can never put her books down. Jim Butcher needs mentioning for his world building in the Dresden Files along with Patrica Briggs. They, and many more, all grace my groaning bookshelves.
Laurie-I read in your Bio you like to play the Wii? What are some of your favorite games?
Eve-LOL. I love Rockband. I am the designated guitar player with the Lego version being our music of choice. Mario Galaxy rocks as do all the Mario Party's. I'm proud to say I've played all 8. RPG's are my favorite games of all but sadly the Wii isn't too strong on those yet.
Laurie-What are you working on next?
Eve-Alien Mate 3 is currently brewing in my mind and begging for release. I've also got a Cleopatra paranormal that's partially fleshed out. According to her voice in my head, history didn't tell the whole truth and she's expecting me to set the record straight. I usually keep the projects section of my website, EveLanglais.com, updated with in progress works.
