Interview & Giveaway with Author Ella Jade


________________________________________________

Bookin' It Reviews is very excited to welcome in cooperation with Sizzling Promotions author Ella Jade here today! She is celebrating the release of her erotic romance book titles Lonely Dominant! Ms. Jade is offering a giveaway to one reader that leaves a comment with a valid email address. 

So let's get started by introducing you to author Ella Jade!


Ella Jade has been writing for as long as she can remember. As a child, she often had a notebook and pen with her and now as an adult, the laptop is never far. The plots and dialogue have always played out in her head, but she never knew what to do with them. That all changed when she discovered the EBooks industry. She started penning novels at a rapid pace and now she can't be stopped.
Ella resides in New Jersey with her husband and two young boys. When she's not chasing after her kids, she's busy writing, kickboxing and scrapbooking. She hope's you'll get lost in her words.



Talina: Welcome, Ms. Jade! I am honored to have you on Bookin’ It Reviews today! Thank you so much for taking the time to be here. Before we get started talking about your sexy upcoming release of The Lonely Dominant, let’s talk a bit about you!

Talina: For those of us just meeting you, can you share a little bit about what makes your writing unique?

Ella: Thanks so much for having me today.
I like to think I'm a dialogue girl. I want the conversations I create between my characters to sound realistic and help drive the plot. The more depth I can give my characters, the more a reader can connect with my story.

Talina: Almost every writer and reader likes to know this one, what inspires you to write the stories you give readers?

Ella: The characters inspire me. I like to create a person I can identify with and go from there. I might not make the same choices they would, but I want to be able to really get them. I get so lost in my stories that they're all I can think about. I love finding new and creative ways to put my two main characters together.

Talina: How would you describe your voice?

Ella: As I said, it's the conversations that make the story for me. You won't always find paragraph after paragraph of description in my stories. I set the scene, draw the reader in and tell the story.  I want my voice to pull you in and keep you there.

Talina: Can you share a bit about your upcoming release, Lonely Dominant?

Ella: Sure! The Lonely Dominant is a Contemporary BDSM Romance. Here's the blurb…
Successful businessman Alec Carter realizes his life is less than fulfilled when he meets beautiful Princeton University senior Clara Whittaker at a local coffee shop. Alec experiments in the BDSM lifestyle but doesn't consider himself hardcore until he crosses paths with the obviously submissive Clara. The more time Alec spends with young Clara, the more his dominant tendencies push to the surface. She could be what has been missing.
After her grandmother's death, Clara ends up a guest in Alec's home until she can finish school. She quickly learns she's a natural submissive and decides she wants to explore this new side of herself with the man of house. Alec shows her a life she never knew existed as they enter into a world of role playing, fantasy, and desire. Alec may be the Master, but Clara holds the key to his heart. 
As the semester comes to an end, so does their arrangement. If Alec doesn't admit his true feelings for Clara, she could walk out of his life forever. But, Alec isn’t sure which she craves more . . . his dominance . . . or his love.

Talina: Did you have any difficulty writing either the hero or heroine?

Ella: Not really. I knew where I wanted to go with both of them. I knew who had to do what growing and when, so it was a matter of them telling me where to take them and I did.

Talina: Which character spoke to you more?

Ella: Well, the story is told in 1st person from the male POV. I had this idea that I wanted to tell the novel from the Dominant POV, so I went with it. I had fun channeling the inner-male I didn’t know I possessed. So, I guess in this particular story, Alec spoke to me more. But, Clara will get her say as I've recently started the second book in this series. It's called The Eager Submissive.

Talina: Without any spoilers of course (unless you’d like to share ;-)), what is your favorite scene in Lonely Dominant?

Ella: I think my favorite scene is Clara's birthday. Both characters come to an important realization that night and it helps them further their journey not only as a Dominant and a submissive, but as a couple as well. Plus, my favorite steamy scene occurs in the playroom that night;)

Talina: Where can readers find you and more on your books? 

Ella:  I love making new friends.  You can follow me at http://ellajadeauthor.blogspot.com.
I'm also on twitter @ellajade1 and on FB http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=100001950837414

Talina: Any special news or further upcoming releases readers should watch for?

Ella: Yes, my first m/m Contemporary Romance is scheduled for release on 12/19/11 with Beachwalk Press.  It's called Embracing the Unexpected.
Here's the blurb…

Sometimes love can be found where we least expect it. 

Successful attorney Parker Phillips has always been straight, but he's having trouble finding the right woman. Failed relationship after failed relationship has proven that.

Brilliant and charismatic Dr. Jace Cross is comfortable in his sexuality, but has been single for some time. He throws himself into his work to fill the lonely void. He's drawn to Parker in ways he knows he shouldn't be.

When one bad decision lands Parker in Jace's court-appointed anger management course, sparks fly. Parker isn't willing to embrace his feelings. Can the sexy doctor help him discover who he truly is?

Thanks!

  3. You are a new to me author but you won't be anymore. Wow, I love a BDSM book written in the male POV. I love to get into his mind and see what makes him tick.

    Thanks for the contest.

  4. I'm with you Marika. I debated whether I should write the entire thing from the male POV but when I came up with the title, I knew I had to do it. I'm glad I did;)

  5. I love BDSM books and I admit that I get tired of the heroine's POV. She's always the sub, yadda yadda yadda. Reading from the male POV makes it richer and deeper for me.

    Thanks. :)

  6. What's the most intriguing aspect to this story is that it's in the 1st person. I think it would be fascinating to get that look into the BDSM lifestyle.
