Books-n-Kisses is super excited to have Tigris Eden on the blog today with her new novel Enslaved (released yesterday). I got to read this book early and let me tell you it is GOOD!!! So let’s learn a little more about Tigris
Can you please share with us a little about yourself
There really isn’t much to tell, I am a boring book nerd who loves to read write and listen to music. On occasion I make people laugh.
Have you always wanted to be an author?
I can honestly say yes… I’ve been writing for a very long time.
What is your most interesting writing quirk?
I like to write in the buff… JOKING JOKING! Seriously I don’t really have a quirk I just write when the mood hits me… Which is almost every day! Maybe that could be a quirk?
Can you please tell us about your latest book(s)?
My latest book is about a werewolf and a human who have a one night stand and then by unfortunate means end of running end to each other five years later. Of course there are bad men after her and he wants her but she’s not sure about him and oh yeah there is the issue of her secret. One night in a steamy jungle can do a lot to a girl’s brain!
How did you come with the idea for this story?
Was listening to Maroon 5’s Secret in the car one day and thought a one night stand would be awesome. Originally it was going to be contemporary but then werewolf getting it on sounded so much better.
Can you share with us your current work(s) in progress?
I am actually working on Burned in Shadows while piecing together two other series ideas. Burned is the sequel to Enslaved and it’s going to be a wild ride of emotions a bit of drama and closure for two particular people. Oh and another surprise. LOL
Who is the one author that you would love to meet someday and why?
Earnest Hemingway… I have never said that before until this interview. And I promise I wasn’t trying to be brainy. If you had asked me a month ago it would have been Shayla Black and not that I don’t want to meet her face to face. It’s just I was reading A Moveable Feast, his memoirs in Paris, and well he is a description junkie… And I love the way he describes things. But he’s gone so we will get back to Shay… Shayla Black is amazing! I just want to have one sit down, one lunch and pick her brain. I would ask her what I’ve always wanted to ask her face to face just to see the expression on her face and see what answers I get. WHAT FREAKING SEX CLUB ARE YOU GOING TO IN DALLAS TO GET YOUR INFORMAITON! LOL! Her research is phenom! It’s like she’s really been to the clubs… I mean seriously! She has to be a freakin member or something! LOL She writes great ROMANCE! Love HER!
What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone that wants to get into writing?
Never stop no matter what! There is always room for improvement! And if you get taken to school on one of your books, take notes, don’t be afraid to dig deeper into the reason why someone didn’t like your story. Just take the notes. When schools out, go play.
Can you share with us something off your bucket list?
I want to sail the Bermuda Triangle when I’m like 89 years old. I want to charter a yacht and leave and see if A) What’s on the other side, will I be greeted by Aliens or worse the gateway to some unspeakable time warp machine that will take me back to my younger years. Or B) Gain the secret of life! I know it sounds wacky and strange but you never know I could either come back… Or I could die either way I would have lived a full life. And that in itself will be my reward. (Thinks to self) I hope I don’t drown though, that would be a horrible way to go.!
What is in your To Read Pile that you are dying to start or upcoming release you can’t wait for?
I have a long list in my TBR pile.. But I am dying for Reseph’s Book and dying for Karin Tabke’s last installment of Blood Moon Rising Trilogy! Luca Raffa you are hot! Werewolf Sandwiching is in!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I can’t think of anything else at all… Thanks Kelly for having me on your blog! You rock on all kinds of level of awesomeness! I am so glad you enjoyed Enslaved, and I promise I will take the anxiety down a couple notches for you. J
