Interview and Giveaway with Tanith Davenport

What inspired you to become an author?

It's something I've wanted since I was a child, but the onset of my thirtieth birthday gave me the kick to finish my debut novel and get it out there.

Do you write in different genres?

The advantage of erotic romance is that you can write across a number of genres as you like. Most of what I write would come under "contemporary" but I've begun writing paranormal as well recently.

If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

Probably paranormal. It's something which fascinates me in real life as well as in writing, but going from experience it's far more entertaining to read and write about than it is in reality!

Do you title the book first or wait until after it’s complete?

Usually I title it first - it makes me nervous if I don't have a title for something I'm working on. Of course, that's not to say I won't have changed it by the time I'm finished.

What book are you reading now?

"House of Darkness, House of Light" by Andrea Perron. Since "The Conjuring" came out I've been reading up on all the Warren cases.

What books are in your to read pile?

Other than my Ed and Lorraine Warren nonfictions, I've got Philippa Gregory's "The White Princess". I love historical fiction, especially hers.

What is your current “work in progress” or upcoming projects?

In the next few months I have my short story "Sleepwalker", about a sleepwalking girl who encounters a matchmaking ghost, and my Clandestine Classic "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall", which was a great one to work on. Anne Bronte was a very underrated writer.

Do you have to travel much to do research for your books?

No, but I like to if I can. For my upcoming short "Sleepwalker" I visited a haunted hotel and stayed in their haunted suite - didn't encounter the ghost, though.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

For unpublished writers, my best advice would be to finish the book - which is the hardest part - and never give up.

Book Description:

In the bar at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Jade Bleecker celebrates with her three best friends, all of whom are there to get married - Jade is their bridesmaid, and beginning to believe that three times a bridesmaid really does mean never a bride. Tattooed, pierced and a martial artist, Jade is used to inspiring fear rather than desire in men, and even if she did find one who could handle her - well, no man is worth trusting with her body.

But, as she is leaving the bar, she comes upon a mugging in progress and, with a few swift moves, makes short work of the mugger. Invited up to the victim's room for a nightcap, she is stunned to discover he is Will Vandenmeer - billionaire poster child of the Vandenmeer hotel and casino chain, and owner of The Sanctuary, one of the best known BDSM clubs in New York City.

Jade finds herself hopelessly attractive to the sensual, dominant Will, and when he offers to induct her into the world of BDSM, she accepts... but can she truly give herself to him, and is Will ready for what Jade has to offer?
