Interview with Suzanne Rock

Do you write in different genres?

Yes! Up until very recently, I wrote erotic romance. While the stories were always erotic, about half of them were paranormal and half contemporary.

Recently, I wanted to change things up a bit and write more mainstream romances. I now write new adult contemporaries as Ava Conway and love it! I’m hoping to have something officially released sometime next year.

If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

Paranormal. I love the world building. J
Those stories tend to be very dark and heavy, so sometimes I need a break from them. That’s when I turn to contemporaries.

Is the book, characters, or any scenes based on a true life experience, someone you know, or events in your own life?

Goodness, no. I’ve never had a threesome with two Irish exchange students, lol. I was a chemistry graduate student however (analytical chemistry), so that aspect is true. Like most people, I’ve also had those wonderful lazy days of summer growing up where you’d hang out on the beach and have fun. It was that content feeling that I was trying to capture in the story.
What books/authors have influenced your life?

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

What book are you reading now?

Death Masks by Jim Butcher. It was released a while ago. I love the series.

What books are in your to read pile?

Lauren Jameson’s Blush and Em Petrova’s Lip Lock

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

I’ve got lots of things happening behind the scenes, lol. I just signed with Deidre Knight of the Knight Agency. She’s been fantastic. Through our partnership, I’m hoping to improve my writing and bring it to readers I couldn’t reach on my own. Exciting times!

For those who like paranormals, the second book in my Warlock Mating Chronicles series with Siren Bookstrand is coming out in September. I also might have some good news soon about a pair of stories involving some mischievous incubi. Look for those to come out next year.

If you like contemporary erotic romance, then you’ll be happy to know that I’m going to be releasing two new novellas set in the same world as “A Little Bit Reckless.” All together, these three books are called the “Small Town Seduction Series.” Look for the two new stories to come out close to Christmas. I’m also working with my agent on a project proposal for a brand new erotic series. I can’t say much about it now, but I hope to have some good news for everyone by the end of the year.

And lastly, I write new adult books as Ava Conway. My latest work, Hollow, is a little like Girl Interrupted, a little like Breakfast Club. I hope to have good news about that soon, as well.

If you want the latest information on my new releases, please sign up for my street team, facebook fan club, or follow me on twitter.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
It’s tough for me to be patient, lol. A lot of time is spent waiting for critique partners, for submissions, for contract negotiations, for edits, for more edits and for release. I’m the type of person who likes to stay busy. I always have a couple of projects going on at the same time so I’m not idle.

Who designed the cover of your latest book?

I designed the cover for Two Are Better than One. It was my first attempt at book covers. Since they are so time consuming, I’ve started hiring a designer. Tara at Fantasia Frog Designs did the cover for And One Make Three (the sequel). I love her! I use her for most of my graphic needs.

Quinn and Declan enjoy having sex together, but love sharing a woman more.

After months of searching, they’ve lost hope of ever finding a permanent third to complete them.

Then they meet shy, reclusive Hannah and everything changes. The sexual energy between them is incredible and the men soon realize that no other woman will do. They decide to confront her at the department’s summer kick-off party.

Will the straight-laced Hannah be open to a three-way relationship? They’ll have to do everything they can to convince her that two men are better than one.

About the Author Suzanne Rock:
A lifetime New Englander, Suzanne married her college sweetheart and has been with him for over twenty years.

Every summer she drags her husband and two daughters to Maine on a quest for the perfect lobster dinner. Every fall she can be found down in Foxboro, Massachusetts cheering on her favorite football team.

In between those trips, she’s a chauffer, a maid, a chef, an event planner, a hairdresser, a wardrobe stylist,  a tutor and a sometimes masseuse.

To keep her sanity, she often drinks copious amounts of coffee and stares at the blank screen of her laptop, dreaming of great adventures. Sometimes she even writes them down for others to enjoy.

Suzanne loves hearing from her fans, and can be contacted through her website:
