AAD Author Spotlight: Tilly Greene!

My internal clock is all screwed up from the holidays, but today is indeed Friday which means it's time to feature another author! This week's featured author is Tilly Greene and she's taking on the Five Question Quiz!

Five Question Quiz from Tilly Greene

1. Introduce yourself, Twitter style! Describe yourself or your books in 140 characters or less.
@TillyGreene writes scorching romances in various genres, full of twists and occasional turns into BDSM and/or ménage on path to each other.

2. Tell us a little bit about your latest release, or your upcoming projects if you'd prefer.
My latest release is called “Missing in Paradise” and coming out very soon is a short called “Konnichiwa Cowboy”. “Missing in Paradise” is a contemporary erotic romance with bondage and is about a couple who are about to crumble under the strain of keeping their relationship private, which is nearly impossible to do in Hollywood. There’s a bit of surfing, a hint here and there on how to reuse a treasured item that’s seen better days, and some seriously hot bound up loving everywhere but on a bed. While the couple in “Missing in Paradise” have a week to fix things, “Konnichiwa Cowboy”, a contemporary/light western erotica, takes place in one night. A cowboy is in Japan sharing a desk with a woman who doesn’t know how much he wants her. He believes for the trip to be successful, he must leave Japan without telling her of his feelings. On his last night, he arranges for the woman of his sexual fantasies, a submissive and open lover, to share his bed. By dawn, he gets what he asked for and some of what he didn’t think was even possible.

3. What books (your own or others) do you recommend most often?
That’s actually a difficult question to answer. You see, I take recommending a book to someone very seriously and don’t want to waste their time or money by suggesting something they aren’t interested in reading. That said, I always have ideas in mind. If someone likes sexy cowboys, then Cat Johnson is for them. If the want to read dark alternative romance, then Stella and Audra Price are the most do’s, especially their Djinn gang in their Duvall Inc series - love those books! Selena Illyria is my go to for sexy shifters and vamps. When I’m in a historical romance frame of mind, Johanna Lindsey and Stephanie Laurens are my favorites and as for mysteries, lately I’ve been enjoying Linda Fairstein and Tarquin Hall. The last time I recommended one of my own to a reader who just wanted to read one of mine it was “Highland Heat” , “Hephaestus Lays Down the Law” , and “Call Me Lucifer”. Sorry, I can never suggest just one book, not when there are so many good ones out there.

4. What part of Authors After Dark 2012 are you looking forward to the most?
The people - they are fabulous! Often this is the only place I get to catch up with some folks and then there are others I meet for the first time, and it’s all good! The panels are interesting as well, although the direction they take is always up to the audience. Then there are the parties and from what I’ve heard about the NOLA events, these are going to be spectacular.

5. If you've been to AAD before, do you have any advice for first time attendees?
Let your hair down and enjoy! You want to wear your pj’s all day and even to dinner, go ahead, plenty of others do exactly that. As for the masquerade, think big or minimal and have fun! Raise your hand in a panel, ask that dying to know the answer or just curious question, there are no bad ones. Always wanted to meet and get a picture with a particular author, seek them out - they won’t bite, unless you want them to. As soon as you drop your luggage off in your room, leave all the stress and must do’s of life behind, grab your camera and step freely into the whirlwind of fun.

Many thanks to Tilly for stopping by today!  Due to the epic amount of indie awesomeness that will be going on here at WBiT in December I'm putting author spotlights on hold until January, but fear not! They will resume as soon as the giveaways are over and 2012 has started.  It's going to be excellent, I kid you not.
