Interview with Layne Macadam

Hi Kimber, and thank you so much for interviewing me today on your site.

Thanks so much for coming, Layne!  I love a hot Navy SEAL and can’t wait to read “Desire Unleashed!”  Now, on with the questions!

What authors/books inspired your love for the genre?

I’ve always had a passion for the written word and devoured books from when I was first able to read. The romance books that inspired me initially, I guess were the classics, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, Sense and Sensibility, Jane Eyre, but as for modern-day authors/books, Shannon McKenna’s Behind Closed Doors immediately springs to mind. Her graphic descriptions and the excitement she created captivated me right from the start, and her eloquent love scenes are some of the best I have read. I still look for her new releases.

Do you believe in Happy Ever After’s in real life?

Absolutely! I believe everyone has a special someone and love is out there. You might have to work hard to find it, and it may take longer to find, but it’s there, you just have to keep looking. Once you’ve found it though hold on to it tight because to go through life with your soul mate is a gift to be cherished.

Which of your books are you most proud of and why?

Definitely Desire Unleashed Book 1 in the Desire Series. It’s my first book so of course it’s special, and being over 100K words it was a mammoth task, so just completing it gave me a sense of achievement. And of course Shane Jackson, the hero is to die for, as are his Navy SEAL buddies! *grins*

What is your writing process like?  Are you a planner?  Pantster? 

Oh definitely a pantster. I am striving to be a planner though. Really, it probably makes more sense to have your story plotted out in a sequence of events doesn’t it? I guess that would also eliminate a lot of unnecessary to-ing and fro-ing and going back to add things in. I’ve read quite a bit on plotting lately and am putting it in to practice with my current work Desire Denied using the Five Act paradigm.

What is your favorite writing tool or tip?

That’s easy. After my laptop of course, it’s the cut and paste feature. Being a pantster I’d write a number of chapters and then go back to read and edit them. That’s when I’d discover that a particular scene in chapter X fitted so much better with what was happening in chapter XY. Solution—cut and paste!! Voila all done. I’m in awe of those authors who had to use a typewriter!

I agree. And libraries to do research!  Yikes!

Who are your favorite erotic romance authors right now and why?

Mm, that’s a hard one. There are so many wonderful authors out there it’s difficult to choose. Apart from the few I have named and you Kimber, I also count Annie Solomon as one of my favorites, and I’ve recently read and enjoyed books by several of my fellow LSB authors: Daisy Banks, Rosanna Leo, Christy Gissendaner to name a few. I’m finding new authors with a wealth of talent all the time.

You’re too sweet, Layne!

Please give us a two-hundred word teaser from your latest release, as well as the tag line for your book.

Teaser

Wolf and Havoc watched fascinated from the boat. “He’s got it bad.”

“Yep,” Havoc agreed with a cheesy grin as he jumped over the side and into the water.

Handing the basket of food down to the big fella, Wolf beamed as he thought about the fun to be had at Ice’s expense. “Payback’s gonna be a bitch ain’t it?”

“Got that right.” Havoc chuckled. “And about time too,” he added as he waded toward the sand.

“Hey Havoc,” he called, and was waiting when Havoc spun back toward the boat.

“Say cheese,” he said, snapping the big man’s photo with his digital SLR.

Havoc flipped him the bird. “Get a life will you? I’m sick of that goddamned camera of yours, and while we’re on the subject, if you e-mail one more bloody picture to my mother I’m gonna knock your freaking block off.”

Wolf gave a belly laugh, zoomed in on Kathy and Ice on the beach, and snapped them too. Checking the images in the LCD, he was pretty happy with the results.

Thanks, Layne!  It was such a pleasure having you today!  I can’t wait to see what else you have up  your sleeve and “Desire Unleashed” is going on my TBR pile for sure!
