Interview & #Giveaway with Bethany Michaels, author of My Favorite Fantasy: Tripled! #FMBBooks

Please help me welcome author Bethany Michaels to Full Moon Bites as part of her My Favorite Fantasy: Tripled book tour! Read on below for our interview and a giveaway! :)

Holly: Hi, Bethany! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Bethany Michaels: I’m from a tiny Indiana farm town but now live in Nashville, Tennessee with my husband and kids. I first published in 2006 and since then have sold a dozen or so shorts, novellas and novels to several small and e-presses. One of those was an RT Nominee for Best Indie Press Erotic Romance in 2009. Recently I’ve self-published some of my reverted titles as well as some original work. When I’m not writing or doing laundry I enjoy the outdoors and volunteer with my kids’ scout troops.

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your book, Tripled?

Bethany Michaels: Tripled is the second book in my indie series, “My Favorite Fantasy”. This story explores a woman’s ménage relationship with her long-time best friend, Nick, and a sexy stranger she meets in the art gallery where she works. She cares for both men but finding a relationship that works for all three is a little tricky!

I’ve written quite a bit of erotic romance, but this one has one of the kinkiest scenes I’ve ever written. I think it works for the characters and the situation, though. For me, that’s the difference between erotic romance and straight up porn.

Holly: Where can we purchase Tripled?

Bethany Michaels: Tripled is available at all the usual e-tailers like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance Ebooks, Kobo and others. There will be a print edition in 2013 that contains all five books in the “My Favorite Fantasy” series.

Holly: What was your inspiration for this novel, or the series in general?

Bethany Michaels: I had self-published a book that I’d gotten the rights back to from a publisher and decided that I wanted to write an original series to distribute that way. I had a lot of ideas for romantic, sexy novella-length stories so decided to make it a series of fantasies, kind of like a Red Shoe Diaries thing. The first one, Cuffed, is about an
outlaw heroine, her sexy cop and his way with a pair of handcuffs. Tripled is a threesome story. Also in the line-up are stories of voyeuristic sex with a hot celebrity movie star, a woman with a doctor fetish and one that’s all about toys.

Holly: Where do you see yourself at in five years—writing wise?

Bethany Michaels: I’d like to be self-publishing the really sexy stuff but also working regularly with a bigger publishing house on longer or more mainstream romance. My current day job will be a distant memory. All four of my kids will be teenagers, so I’ll probably be a little more gray than I am now J

Holly: Is there a genre that you love to read, and would like to write, but just can not?

Bethany Michaels: I can’t do dark and gritty. I’ve tried, but I just can’t resist putting in the funny. I love to read about those dark Alphas, but my heroes are generally sexy in a quirkier way. I can’t help but see the humor in life and so do my characters.

Holly: What are some of the pro’s and con’s of being published by a verses being self-published in your opinion?

Bethany Michaels: The thing I like most about self-publishing is control. I control the price, the cover, the release date, the retail outlets where my book will be sold, and what topic I’m writing about. I keep a much larger portion of the sales, which is a huge plus. I also control the content, which can be scary. Even though I have a copy editor to catch my typos, there is no one to reject a story that doesn’t work, so there’s always a moment of self-doubt before I hit the “publish” button. The thing I like about working with a publisher is working with a really good editor one-on-one. My Red Sage editor was awesome and is a Rita-winner.  I learned so much from her with every book. I think all authors should have that experience at least once before deciding whether to take their careers down the indie path.

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

Bethany Michaels: Thanks for stopping by! My full backlist is on my website at www.bethanymichaels.com. I’m also on Twitter as @bmichaelsauthor.

Blurb:

London and Nick have been friends since college but when Nick moves in with London during renovations to his own apartment, things quickly start to become less than platonic. Just as London is starting to see the upside to this new development, she meets the perfect guy for her, Collin, an artist at the art gallery where she works.

Nick is her best friend, her confidant, the one person on Earth she can just be herself with. But Collin feeds her intellect, her artistic side, her soul.  Once she’s finally tasted each of them, London knows she has to choose, but cannot decide which man she can live without. Luckily Nick and Collin have it all figured out and are determined to show London that two are always better than one.


Bethany Michaels grew up in a small Indiana farm town, which gave her lots of time to indulge her love for reading and writing.  She currently lives outside Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and children.

Bethany is the author of over a dozen short stories, novellas and novels. She writes hot sexy love stories for several publishers including Red Sage, Whispers and Siren and is working on some independent titles as well. She earned a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Nomination for her novel, Nashville Heat and is a member of Romance Writers of America, Music City Romance Writers and Indiana Romance Writers of America.

When not at work on her next book or catching up the laundry or dishes, Bethany enjoys watching movies, hiking, reading, travelling and volunteering with her kids’ scout troops. She is trying to enjoy snacking on vegetables and using the treadmill rather than snacking on potato chips and using the television, but isn’t quite there yet.
