Interview with Avril Ashton, author of Till Surrender!

Holly: Hi Avril Ashton! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Avril Ashton: Sure thing! I’m really the most boring person you’ll ever get the chance to not meet. I’m a fan of books, of food and of naked men. I like to read books about naked men…see what I did there? Combined my vices perfectly. Ha. I also multitask. A lot.

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your book Till Surrender?

Avril Ashton: Till Surrender is book two in my Paranormal Security Council series with Total E Bound. The Council is your typical Secret Service-type organization that policies the paranormal beings who live among humans. Within the Council is the notorious and much-feared elite death-squad. My hero, Saint, is part of that squad and is sent to undercover to terminate a human professor leading an uprising against the paras. Should be an easy job, but Saint finds his mate and the key to his cursed existence in his targets younger brother. Talk about awkward.  

Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Avril Ashton: In this instance I had the plot down before finessing the characters. That’s not normally the case with me.

Holly: Where can we purchase Till Surrender? At Barnes and Noble:

Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?

Avril Ashton: I am. I’m knee deep in Till Mercy, book three in the PSC series and this one features the marked-for-death professor I mentioned before.

Holly: Do you think you may ever go into another genre?

Avril Ashton: Not really. I’m quite content be where I am at the moment. Although, never say never.

Holly: How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

Avril Ashton: My female characters are all me, loud and aggressive, minus the great heels. But other than that, no one I know is quite interesting enough to make it into my stories.

Holly: Who or what influenced your writing once you began?

Avril Ashton: All the authors I’ve read over the years influence my writing in some way because they motivate me to keep at it, to make myself better and to just do the damn thing.

Holly: Why this genre(s)?

Avril Ashton: Because I love it. Paranormal/Fantasy and M/M romance. Nothing beats that.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Avril Ashton: Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedules to read my books. You’re awesome ;-)

Holly: What is the hardest part of writing in your opinion?

Avril Ashton: The stuff that comes after writing. Gah!

Random Quickies!

Holly: Vampires or Werewolves?

Avril Ashton: I like both, but if I have to choose it’ll have to be the wolves.

Holly: Ebook or hardcover/paperback?

Avril Ashton: Ebook

Holly: Favorite color?

Avril Ashton: Red

Holly: Pepsi or Coke?

Avril Ashton: Pepsi

Holly: Favorite genre to read?

The key to his salvation is the one person he’s destined to love…and betray.

Tattooed half-breed, Takayo ‘Saint’ St. John, kills for the PSC with single-minded efficiency. He’s never questioned or failed his assignments…until he stares into the cornflower blue eyes of Ryken Valte, the man whose life he’s infiltrated under false pretenses. Harsh words and a cold shoulder isn’t enough to keep the distance between them, but Saint’s mission hangs over his head. His job is to kill the brother of the man he loves and he sees no way out of his predicament.

Ryken melts under the intense attraction between him and Saint, but the man keeps pushing him away, denying their connection. Ryken would give up everything, do anything to have Saint at his side and in his bed, but secrets bigger than them make it impossible. Ryken yearns for Saint’s surrender, but he’ll get more than he bargained for when dark forces neither comprehends return with a vengeance.


 Ryken backed up and spoke again. “I want you to quit. Now. Today.”
Saint couldn’t help it—he burst out laughing. Sure wasn’t expecting that. “So soon? I’ve only just arrived.”
Ryken frowned, the arousal in his eyes all but replaced by anger. “I don’t care what you tell my brother, but I want you to leave tonight.” Desperation flared on his face for a second, but he recovered smoothly, settling on a commanding sneer instead.
Lips curved, Saint slid his gaze down the tight length of Ryken’s body. Past the red T-shirt and tan leather jacket, to the dark jeans riding low on his hips. He licked his lips at the thick bulge growing bigger by the moment. “Scares you, doesn’t it?” Bringing his attention back to Ryken’s face, he saw that confused arousal was back.
Deep splashes of red coloured Ryken’s cheeks. “What scares me?”
Saint closed the distance between them with a grin, his cock swaying within the loose confines of his sweats with each step. “The pull you feel between us scares you. The fact that I get your cock hard scares you.”
Ryken’s jaw dropped and his eyes bulged.
Saint kept going. “The fact that you see my face when you’re with David scares you.”
Ryken jerked as if struck. Guess that one hit home.
Saint leant forward, sniffing the side of Ryken’s neck. The other man’s heat scorched him, making his eyes slide shut. Ryken stiffened. Wave after delicious wave of arousal crashed over Saint, but he couldn’t act on it. He needed to drive Ryken away. “I can smell him on you, Ryken. David.” He spat the name out. “Did he fuck you? Give you what you needed?”
Whimpers left Ryken’s throat. His hands moved up, grabbed Saint’s forearms, the blunt nails sinking into his skin. Saint snatched Ryken’s hands away and pushed him backwards, slamming him into the door. A muted gasp escaped Ryken’s parted lips. Their gazes met, clashed, those gorgeous blues begging.
God. God.
Ryken licked his lips and Saint was on him in a fucking heartbeat, tongue sliding inside wet heat, fingers tangling in silky blond locks. Ryken melted into him instantly, his cock straining between them, right leg lifting to wrap around Saint’s waist. Saint grunted into his mouth, reaching down to palm Ryken’s jean-covered ass.

Avril Ashton 

A Caribbean transplant, Avril now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y with a tolerant Spousal Equivalent. Together they raise an eccentric daughter who loves reading and school (not so much school anymore). Avril’s earliest memories of reading revolve around discussing plot points of The Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys with an equally book-minded mother.

Always in love with the written word, Avril finally decided to do the writing in August of ’09 and never looked back. Spicy love scenes, delicious heroes, and wicked women burn up the pages of Avril’s stories, but there’ll always be a happy ending; Av remains a believer of love in all its forms.
