Winner of What Happens in Vegas…After Dark is…

…Eshani! Eshani said, “Great Prize!! I loved “What happens in Vegas”. Great authors, unique stories, and a fantastic setting. I’m even more excited for the sequel simply because of the extra special paranormal ingredient.”

Drop me an email at anyabast (at) gmail.com or via the contact form on my site by May 5th (it’s coming up!) to collect your prize.

Good luck in today’s contest for ANTICIPATION AND SEDUCTION, all!

Here are the Q & As from yesterday:

Tez asks: Were the Vegas anthologies sold in a two-book deal, or separately? Did you authors write your first contributions whilst knowing your second would be paranormal? You know all the lingo, Tez! The books were not sold in a two-book deal, but were sold separately. The possibility of a paranormal follow-up had been discussed at the time we were writing the first (non-paranormal) installment, but we weren’t sure at the time if it would ever happen.

Cinnamon asks: Is this a book that I should dare to read in public? Also, how much fun was it for you to write The Promise?
To the first question, well, that’s up to you. ;) The book is pretty steamy. I really enjoyed writing The Promise because I liked telling Damian’s story. In The Deal (the novella in the first anthology) Damian comes off like a real prick, having dumped his fiancee at the altar. This was my chance to tell his side of the story and explain why he did it. He had a pretty good reason.

Susan asks: Do you have a scene in your mind that you haven’t been able to fit into one of your stories yet? If so can you give us a hint what it is about? Hmmm….I usually write all the scenes that pop into my mind because they’re popping in there as a result of thinking about the current plot/characters I’m working on. I do have a couple scenes stuck in my head right now that will eventually go into my current work-in-progress, as soon as I can get back to writing it (I’m editing another project right now). One of the scenes is a super hot sex scene that takes place in an alley–a very furtive, desperate scene. ;)

Tina b wrote: i did read the first vegas book, and am looking forward to this one, my question is do you think there will be a third vegas book? and if so do you see yourself brining any characters we might know back in another story? I’m pretty sure this will be the last Vegas book. :) As for bringing characters back, I think I got all mine in.

Mel K wrote: Have you seen the movie WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS w/Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher? Yep! I thought I wouldn’t like it and ended up really enjoying it. Funny story about that movie…because it came out at about the same time I posted the book trailer for our anthology on Youtube, our book trailer ended up getting over 50,0000 views. LOL. Thanks, Hollywood!

Diane S asks: A question: any clues you can give us about your next series?
It will be called the Dark Magick series and the worldbuilding is drawn from fae myth and legend. If you want to know more, I babble on about it in the video blog I posted yesterday. :) Just scroll down.

Happy Saturday, everyone!
