Trask is a lust demon on the hunt for a playmate, a human exceptional enough to sate some of his ravenous hunger. When he finds Rena, he knows that she is the one he must have. He makes it his business to seduce her.

Rena is immediately drawn to Trask. She could easily fall for the dangerously sexy bad boy who makes her scream every time he makes her come, but the problem with bad boys is that they’re actually bad. They break girls’ hearts and hers has been broken too many times already. One more crack might shatter it forever.

Trask claims Rena for his own, but she needs more than just sizzling sex. She wants to trust him, but can they ever share anything more than lust?

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Hello, and thanks so much for hosting me today!

I once read an article, in RT Book Reviews I believe, about all the various and important things that go on behind the scenes when creating a novel. Sadly, a novel just doesn’t pop out of the computer screen on demand. It takes time—sometimes lots of time. While all the inspiration and genius is happening, an author needs to sustain herself. Also, breaks. Lots and lots of breaks. To keep those creative juices flowing of course.

A Matter of Lust took me about four months to write. I am a slow writer. I admit it. It would seem appropriate that while writing about a lust demon, I might indulge in a few sinful activities of my own. During that time, I probably consumed my weight in chocolate three times over. But that’s just the least of it. Today, I’m going to share all that I devoured and the many ways I dawdled with while writing Trask and Rena’s story.

Be warned—it isn’t pretty.

Lisa’s List of Work Vices and Procrastinations

  • 1440 cups of coffee (4 months x 12 cups a day. This is an average of course. I generally drink more than 12 cups a day)
  • 6,432 “just two minutes!” breaks to check out what was going on Twitter
  • 114 miles of “walking around the block” when I was stuck and frustrated
  • 563 uses of the word pulse
  • 591 trips to the thesaurus to find synonyms for pulse
  • Double that number and multiply it by 14 to include thrust and throb and trembling
  • 72 bags of ranch flavored sunflower seeds (my pacifier since I quit smoking)
  • 41 packs of gum (another smoking substitution)
  • 16 dozen thumbprint cookies from my local bakery
  • 60 calls to my local restaurant delivery service because I couldn’t be bothered cooking or actually leaving my house to eat anything. Thank God they have a great selection
  • 836 different colorful metaphors shouted, mumbled and hissed
  • 9 bottles of champagne devoured in celebration and desperation
  • 7 hysterical emails to my friend and first reader agonizing over the title
  • 2,005 pictures of hot men perused to garner “inspiration”

I am doing edits right now on a sexy Quickie that takes place on Mardi Gras night which will be coming soon from Ellora’s Cave and I have a brand new vice for it: Brown Cow Maple yogurt.  That stuff is made of awesome and I can’t get enough of it.

Do you have a favorite vice or time waster? Let me know in the comments and win a copy of A Matter of Lust!
