Under the Covers with Shoshanna Evers

Please help me welcome Shoshanna Evers to Under the Covers with Lynne. First important question. Silk, satin, cotton, flannel. What is your sheet of choice and why?
Shoshanna: Cotton. I’m a practical kind of gal. In the winter, I’d prefer flannel, but unfortunately I don’t own any flannel sheets. I’ll add that to my wish list!

Cotton it is! I’ll scoot over *pats mattress* Let’s get comfortable. Calories don’t count. What snacks will we be munching on tonight
Shoshanna: As far as I’m concerned, calories *never* count. When I feel like eating something, I eat it! But if it’s midnight, I’ll probably be drinking lemonade and rummaging for leftovers in the fridge.

Oh, my husband just introduced me to lemonade. I love it. While I whip up a snack, let’s play a game. Truth or dare?
Shoshanna: Good question! I always used to pick truth when I was a kid. Then if the question was embarrassing I’d just make something up, LOL.

That’s Dare Truth or Not. ; ) Okay. Did you ever pick dare?
Shoshanna: Oh, I just remembered one! The dare was to kiss the pizza guy when he showed up with the pizza for the slumber party. I think I was about thirteen years old, and fortunately for the pizza guy, I backed out at the last minute.

Okay. Now truth. Tell us something not very many people know.
Shoshanna: Ack! Okay, now I’ll have to tell you something without making it up, since I just copped to doing that as a kid. Hmmm. I have a smoky quartz taped to the back of my cell phone to help absorb some of the electromagnetic energy from the phone.

What are you usually wearing at three o’clock in the morning?
Shoshanna: This answer is not as exciting as it should be. In the summer I wear cotton shorts and a T-shirt, and socks. In the winter I wear fleece sweat pants, a long sleeve shirt, and a flannel shirt over that. And socks. My feet are always cold, no matter the weather.

It's not always the packaging. Sometimes it's the present. Besides. I can sympathize. I'm a sock girl too! Let’s get down to business. What surprised you the most about the publishing process?
Shoshanna: I think what surprised me most was that I ended up getting published long before I found a literary agent (Courtney Miller-Callihan of Sanford J Greenburger Associates, who I recently signed with, yay!). I also underestimated just how much time it takes before a book goes from my hands to the reader’s, LOL

Congratulations on your agent! Yup and you thought writing it was the hard part. ; ) Tell us about your newest release.

Shoshanna: My latest release is Chastity Belt, an erotic romance novella from Ellora’s Cave.

Chastity Belt Blurb:

Georgia Hearn has found the perfect way to make easy cash—performing an interactive BDSM-flavored stage show at the exclusive Gentlemen’s Club. When handsome GC client Jonathan Syler goes up onstage and locks her into a chastity belt, it’s all supposed to be part of the fun. But Jonathan makes it clear he won’t be unlocking her anytime soon.

Now she’s at his mercy—and has no choice but to see him again, since he holds the key to her pleasure. Literally.

Reader’s Advisory: This book contains a hot girl-on-girl tease and denial scene and some F/F/M action.

Here’s Chastity Belt at Ellora’s Cave.

You have another new release too?
Shoshanna: I have a new release with The Wild Rose Press as well. Taste of Candy is an erotic romance novella with a touch of BDSM as well.

Taste of Candy Blurb:

Candace “Candy” Bryce can’t believe her luck when she wins a dinner date with Dave Roads, the lead singer of a hot new band. Not only is he a drop dead gorgeous rock star, but after she lets it slip that she's never been able to reach orgasm with a man, he seems bent on giving Candy what she needs. Who knew all it would take is a little "tie me up," a few toys and Dave's merciless desire for a Taste of Candy?

Here’s Taste of Candy at The Wild Rose PressWilder Roses” site:

Finally made it. I hate not getting to blogs where my friends are but sometimes the writing/pormo bug refuses to allow me a spare moment

Shoshanna Evers said...

Thanks Janet! :) I know what you mean - especially as I make more writing friends, it's hard to keep up with everyone's interviews and blog posts etcetera! Even harder to read everyone's books, but I try since I love romance and I love supporting my fellow authors :)
