Book of the Day: Making Mischief, by Leila Brown

*********************THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED****************

making-mischief

Soundwave had always assumed that she was an only child, but she was wrong. Her two sisters have found out about her existence and they are searching the galaxy to find her.

For Mischief, growing up with the power to move objects with her mind has been both a blessing and a curse. Although she’s always been able to take care of herself, she’s never been able to let her guard down. But when the twin beasts from Yarthax break through her defenses she’ll learn that handing over control could be her most thrilling adventure yet.

Rothe and Ritor have known since birth that they would share the same wifemate. They just didn’t count on her being a smart-assed spitfire, strong enough that it would take both of them to get her to submit.

Interview Questions:

1.) How did you get started in writing and how long have you been doing it? I read so much that my husband challenged me. He said that I should write and so I started. My first attempts were horrible but as I learned and practiced I got better. I started writing in 2001, and I sold my first book in 2007. And I am still learning how to do this.

2.) What genres/subgenres are your favorites to write within and do you have any aspirations to write outside your current genres/subgenres. Try something new? I love my erotic paranormal romances. Throw in a little BDSM or ménage…hey I’ll even take both and I am in heaven. As far as writing outside my comfort zone goes I have come up with a YA idea that may go places. I will have to see how it comes together. Until then I am all about the erotic paranormal, sci-fi fantasies.

3.) What are you working on now and what releases do you have coming up? Well, I just released Super Sex 4: Dominating Domino with Changeling Press. Coming in the next few months I will release The Pearl Heartstone, a sequel to The Diamond Heartstone, a Fictionwise Bestseller.

4.) Anything else you’d like to share? I love to hear from readers so contact me with your thoughts.

  1. My most interesting trip was to Maui. Everything was interesting about the Island, and it was my first and only trip to Hawaii.


  2. The most interesting has got to be my visit to the Pearl Harbor site on Oahu. Such an emotional story told in photographs and movies that everyone tears up.


  3. When I was a child, my parents took us to Virginia to explore some underground caverns. I’m really not sure where we were, but I’ve always remembered the beauty and mystery of those underground caves. Now that I’m an adult, I picture those caves as hangouts for vampires and otherworldly creatures I read about.

    God Bless,
    Rhonda :lol:


  4. My best trip ever was two summers ago. I went to Poland and Germany for a month. Amazing! A bunch of teens doing dance and drama in the streets and talking to people? A recipe for chaos, friends and fun. Until homesickness strikes, of course! :lol:


  5. :) Glad you stuck with the writing! :D I know it’s hard when you do something and its terrible the first time…and to continue to do it takes guts!


  6. My most interesting trip was to the Big Island in Hawaii. I’ve never seen such beautiful beaches and we attended a luau and had some Kahlua pig.


  7. The most interesting trip I made was driving down the Gold Coast of Australia with a friend from school. It’s been ages since we left school but it’s our first ever road trip together. We’ve always talked about doing it and we finally did!


  8. The most interesting trip I’ve taken was to the Phoenix International Raceway to watch a NASCAR race. It was so much fun and we had pit passes. I got to talk to a few crew members and even got an autograph from my favorite driver Jeff Gordon.


  9. When I was a kid one of our vacations was a cover wagon trip. It was interesting in the fact that it was so different.


  10. My best trip was to Greece. I fell in love with Delphi and the feeling you get when you are there.


  11. Holy Smokes….it must be the one I’m on right now!!! I’m at an obscure Army post in the southwest on the Mexican/US border. I’ve never seen so much flat, dry land in my life. Oh and a lot of it is on fire….


  12. The trip to Myrtle Beach. It was the first and only time I’ve seen the ocean. I love the ocean, I could have stayed at Myrtle Beach forever. lol It was so fun.


  13. My most interesting trip was the two weeks I spent in Krakow, Poland. Being Polish myself, I enjoyed living the culture and following the Easter traditions that my family observes at home. It was a special experience that I’ll probably never have again. I loved it and the people I met.


  14. My most interesting trip was one that was supposed to only last for 2 days. It ended up taking over a week and a half to get done. I went on my friends 18 wheeler on a trip and it ended up that I went through I think 8-9 states, and I can no longer say that I have never been off the east coast. We were evacuated at one of the truck stops into the bathroom because of tornadoes, and driving down the road through a tornado zone. I had a blast and would do it again if I had the chance. Had I not fallen for my boyfriend I probably would have sold all of my stuff and ended up going to truck driving school. It was that much fun!

  15. I would say Boston. It was my first trip totally on my own with no one to meet me there.


  16. One of the interesting trips I took was to 1000 Islands NY. You go on a boat to an island that has Bodt’s Castle on it. Its a 100 room castle that the man had started for his wife and she died and he stopped building it. For years you could go and see it as it was undone. Then I heard that because of it being undone that they had to close down and then ended up finishing the castle!! I so want to go back and hope to some day on a vacation (its about a six hour drive) and get to see it again! I think its a beautiful but sad love story! I’d love to be in for the VEGAS book! Thanks


  17. The most interesting trip I’ve ever taken has to be a tie between the treasure hunt I went on in 2007 and the trip I took to Russia last August.

    The treasure hunt was interesting because of what it was all about. It took me to a different city each night and clues took me throughout each city to find the answers and then plug them into a cipher to tell me the location in the next city. It started in Washington DC and went through Richmond, VA; Charlotte, NC; Nashville, TN; Atlanta, GA; Savannah, GA; Panama City, FL; and New Orleans, LA. It was a great time.

    As for Russia, it was Russia. Need I say more? :wink:


  18. Most interesting, and most fun, but not for the reason that it’s interesting, was my trip to Portugal with friends. My one friend got sick with a lung infection, and we didn’t know what it was. We ended up in the hospital, where they spoke limited English, and almost no Spanish, for 12 hours, while I tried to play interpreter between English to Spanish to a dictionary in Portuguese. And Thundercats was on the TV in the lounge – in Portuguese. Not the way we had imagined spending our day…. The rest of the trip was beautiful, I highly recommend visiting Lisbon and Sintra!


  19. I travel a lot both within and outside the country, so it is a bit difficult to pick one trip. However, I guess the most interesting may be my trip to Durban, South Africa for the World Conference Against Racism and Xenophobia–where I was one of the few selected to work on the redrafting of the Youth Declaration of Rights. The conference was three prong–the Youth Conference, the NGO portion, and finally the UN portion. It was great to be able to be a part of all three as a delegate from an NGO organization. Moreover, it gave me an opportunity to interact with so many diverse groups from all over the world who share my passion for equality. To make it even better, I got to share that experience with my mother, who is a human rights activist. Of course, it also didn’t hurt that we got to stay in Durban after the world conference to really visit all parts of Durban and that I got to meet Danny Glover! So, overall, very interesting trip!


  20. I got to go to Ireland with a friend and stay with her family. I found out that their history is considered something that could have occurred yesterday. Spent time in Dublin and Galway and points in between. I did get to kiss the Blarney Stone and enter a cairn. Would love to go back.


  21. I never really go anywhere. The most interesting trip that I took was right after I graduated from high school and had just had my oldest daughter. I had a very close friend (who later became my husband) who was going to move to Nevada. My best friend, him, one of his friends, my daughter, and I all packed into my best friend’s car and headed off on a road trip. We were short on funds and were traveling with a new baby. It was lots of fun, but my parents were so worried and angry with me for just taking off. It was fun though.


  22. i loved tornoto and nigara falls
    cognats on the book


  23. I’ve hardly ever been anywhere but I did once go to Las Vegas when I was 12. All the lights were soo cool at night. I never imagined I would some day live there, but when I turned 18 I moved to las vegas and have stayed here ever since.


  24. I went on a trip to Israel in college, it was awesome (literally). It was amazing to see a place with so much history and it was inspiring to be where Jesus actually walked. very cool trip.
