Well, Jeri is a tough act to follow but I’m going to try. Thanks for having me on DIK. I haven’t done any guest blogs or promo for a while since I just had a baby earlier this year so forgive me if I’m rusty. For my hot guy photo, please see the cover of my next book, Slave Boy, coming out from Loose id later this month. (I think it’s July 18 but I could be wrong.) As you can probably guess from the delicious cover done by the very talented April Martinez, it’s a male/male book so if you’re into that, I’m your girl. If not, I have plenty of male/female books for you to check out as well.
Okay, as to the prizes. (Cause that’s what everyone wants to know about right?) Anyone who posts anytime in the next three days goes into the random drawing Wave and I are doing to win copies of my print books. Those include, Take Two, Pleasure Planet, and Pleasure Palace all from Aphrodisia. I will also be starting a round robin later on in the day. You can post a sentence or a whole paragraph. Who knows what we can come up with together? It might be sexy or funny but I am hoping for both. So look for that because it’s another chance to win. Remember, the more you contribute, the greater your chances of getting free print or e-books—your choice.
All right, and now, here are my answers to the DIK questions.
About Me – Evangeline Anderson
Favorite Reading Position
In the bathtub. For me, nothing beats a super hot bubble bath and a good book (and okay, some dark chocolate too.) Obviously this means I can’t read e-books in the tub which sucks but if you came to my house you’d see that all my fav books are a bit waterlogged around the edges. What I want to know is when are they going to invent a waterproof laptop? Because I would totally write in the tub too if I could. In fact, I could live in the tub. All I need is an endless supply of hot water and an equally hot butler to serve me. I just love being able to lock myself away from the world and read and soak.
Best love song
Longer by Dan Fogelberg. It is my song with my hubby and I just love the way it flows. It makes me think of my wedding, which was a very happy day for me. (I have to say at this point that I shared these questions and my answers with a friend and fellow author and she totally denigrated my musical choices. Let me tell you, I am well aware that my taste in music is white bread but that’s okay with me. I blame it on the fact that I am an MRI tech and have a whole library of easy listening songs to calm and soothe claustrophobic patients. You can’t blast Metalica when somebody’s already about to crawl out of their skin ya know. Having said that, even I have limits. No Kenny G. No way, no how. Never. So there.)
Has to be Anita Blake of Laurel K. Hamilton’s Vampire series up until Narcissus in Chains. After that book, the whole Anita world just fell apart IMO. And please forgive me if you’re still a fan, but I just hated the way that Anita went from being such a tough chick who wouldn’t sleep with anyone to being a freak who will sleep with everyone. I mean, the first eight or nine books actually had a plot that didn’t revolve around sex. But after she was stricken with the audure (sp?) she was compelled to have sex with everyone and anyone. Okay…I think I just went off on a rant there. Really sorry but this was so my fav series until poor Anita started having lust seizures and getting it on with every vamp, were, and whatever in the whole freaking universe.
Author everyone but you loves
Whoo-boy. That is tricky. Can I get back to you on that?
If you could be in one book/series/world which would you pick
Probably the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlain Harris. I love Sookie’s attitude and all the gorgeous guys she has to choose from. And I would LOVE to get into Eric’s pants. Lucky Sookie. I totally wanna be her.
Favorite sex song
Witchy Woman by the Eagles. (Yeah, I know it’s not a traditional sex kinda song like Sexual Healing or anything but I think it has a great rhythm. Plus, I like that line “And she drove herself to madness with a silver spoon.” How did she use that spoon, I want to know. Was it for cocaine? Or was it a magical vibrating spoon or something? If so, I want one. Lol
What Heroine would you like to be?
Again, Anita Blake before she became a world class ho.
How old is your inside voice?
Probably about twenty-three. Old enough to know better but still young enough to do it anyway.
If you could be a hero who would you be?
Superman. Hands down, you get to fly and you’re invulnerable. Plus you get to look hot in those yummy tights and cape—oops, that would be a hero I want to DO. I think I just had a Brandon Routh moment there. Sorry.
What heroine is most like you?
Um, is there a heroine who likes to sit for hours in front of her laptop while eating dark chocolate? That would be me. Let me know when somebody writes her so I can sue them for fictionalizing my life. K? Thanks.
What heroine would you most like to be?
A skinny one. No seriously, that’s hard to answer because it depends on my mood. Sometimes I wish I could be Clair from the Outlander series and get some with Jamie. Other times when I’m in an ass-kicking mood I’d like to be Anita (pre-Narcissus in Chains of course).
Boxers, Briefs, Kilt or Commando.
Definitely commando. So much sexier to see a guy peel down his jeans and show the goods with nothing in the way. Of course, I notice that Tighty-Whities didn’t make the list. Can’t imagine why not. Lol
Favorite book set on a tropical island
I have to say Swiss Family Robinson because it is the only one I can think of that I read that’s set on a tropical island. Seriously tho, we listened to the book on tape when I was a kid on a family vacation and parts of it are unintentionally hysterical. They have this boat they use for fishing which I believe is called a pennis which was plenty close enough to penis to have my brother and me nearly in convulsions with laughter. Of course my father (who is a minister) was extremely angry with us for laughing which only made us laugh harder. Anyway, long story short, it’s a funny book. Give it a try.
What hero is most like your significant other?
I have to say Mr. Darcy. Not because my hubby is remote and haughty in any way but because Mr. Darcy was able to sit around and never do the dishes because he had servants to do them for him. Can you guess who does the dishes in our house? Eh-hem. But I love him anyway for being so good with the baby. (My hubby, not Mr. Darcy. Mr D I love for being incredibly hot but I don’t know how he’d handle a crying baby at 4 am. Probably he would call the nanny.)
What hero would you like to be your significant other?
Okay, girls, brace yourselves. NERD ALERT here. I want me some wolverine (Hugh Jackman style of course.) I know that’s a comic book hero and not a book hero but if I get to pick, he’s my first choice. Hot, hairy (smooth chested men leave me clammy) and full of angst. I bet he could really nail a girl to the mattress, know what I mean? And I have to confess, when the lights are out, my hubby does a pretty good Hugh Jackman Wolverine imitation (another thing I love him for despite his aversion to dishes.) PS—Wave, did you know that Logan/Wolverine is a Canadian character? One of his nicknames is ‘Canuckle head.’ I know, I know, more nerd trivia than you need, right. Sorry.
What three things would you bring to a desert island?
Food. Drink. My laptop. That is all I need in the whole world to be happy (aside from my fam of course)
What drink would you bring?
Well….*ducks head* Would you believe I don’t drink? Not because I’m morally opposed to it, just because I grew up in a house where it wasn’t done and I never developed a taste for alcohol. I will drink virgin daiquiris and pina coladas with you all night long, tho and be your designated driver. How’s that?
