Day # 18 Birthday Bash with Lisa Renee Jones

Jun 4, 2010

Welcome to Day #18 of JoJo's 30 Day Birthday Bash. Today we have Lisa Renee Jones, Author of Santa Baby,Naughty Bits 2,Alluring Tales 2: Hot Holiday Nights, Wrapped in Seduction, Captive of the Beast , and much much more!

Lisa Renee Jones

First, and most importantly -- Happy Birthday to Jodie! Talk about a fun Birthday party! I have some built in fun every year myself. My birthday is always the week of the RWA convention. The trip, and fun on the trip is always my present.Fun stuff! *thank you Lisa !!! Oh I bet thats always fun for your Birthday!!*
So...questions answered ....Jodie gave me some fun ones:

~Fav color
Changes like my hair color! Red. I'm liking Red right now.

~Fav Scent
Jasmine on a warm summer night-- or sugar cookies baking. Close tie. Hmmmm. Cookies. I think the cookies win.

~Fav Flavor
Sugar Cookies?:) Or White Mocha at Starbucks. Is that a flavor? In the morning, I'd say YES and its the only flavor that counts!

~What do you like to Read? Your Favorite Genre?
I read all over the board. I just finished Patricia Briggs MERCY series and loved it! Can't wait for the next Karen Moning UF book in her Fae series. I just bought a Lara Adrian book for my I-phone on audible. I listen to audible books while I am working out and love it. The only time I don't do this is when I am intensely in the middle of a deadline because I need to use the workout time to think about my story not someone else's.

~What is the hardest / easiest part of writing for you?
Starting again if I take time off. I prefer to write at least a little everyday or I find the words drag. If I stay involved in the story and write daily, the words flow.

~What's the best thing about being an author?
Bunny slippers and my robe ranks high on the list. Okay not bunnies. They're frogs. No. Joking. Who knows what kind of slippers I will have on. I have a slipper fetish and that is not a joke:) I love everything about being an author, even the pressure of writing a good story. Because without that pressure, there isn't the pleasure and reward, of finishing the book. It is such an honor and a joy to have someone read something you write and actually like it. *no way.....I have froggie slippers too! i mayyyy have them on as we speak! *

Jodie thanks so much for having me. I have 6 books releasing next year -- 3 with Harlequin and 3 with Sourcebooks - so I plan to hit the convention circuit heavily. I hope I get to finally meet you!

YAY!!!! Thank You Lisa!! I hope I get to finally meet you too!!!

Her role is bodyguard…with privileges.

Big-league pitcher Luke Winter needs a new security detail and specialist Katie Lyons is the best in the business. Going undercover as his girlfriend is a no-brainer: she’s got to stay close. Unable to resist the hottie hurler, Katie launches into a torrid fling.

When playing at being lovers becomes the real—incredible, irresistible—thing, Katie finds that she’s taking her eye off the ball. Posing as his girlfriend and being his true-to-life lover are two very different things—and losing focus could cost them both dearly….

This would be a new author for me and this one looks like one I would enjoy!

CrystalGB June 4, 2010 at 12:13 PM  

I have read some of Lisa's Blazes and loved them. She is an amazing writer.

Hmmm...might see this twice since it disappeared.

Happy birthday, JoJo!! And congratulations, Lisa!

Have fun!

joder June 4, 2010 at 2:23 PM  

I've read some of Lisa's Blazes, but not the ones you're offering. I like contemporaries because they're a quick and fun read.

I've read many of Lisa's books and have loved them all! She's a wonderful author. I'm looking forward to the 6 new books.

Krystean June 4, 2010 at 7:33 PM  

I've read quite a few of your books, Lisa and love them! Santa Baby was my first of yours to read, actually got it on Christmas in my stocking, and couldn't put it down until it was done. I've also got Wrapped in Seduction, and 3 of the Nights in White series. Looking forward to the new ones. (I'm in Canada so do not include me in contest, just wanted to say I love your books!)

Anonymous,  June 4, 2010 at 9:19 PM  

Thank you ladies for the nice comments and Krystean I love hearing I ended up in your stocking:) That is fun for a writer to hear.

Santa Baby is my favorite story because I based the stupid stuff that happens to the heroine on the stupid stuff that happens to me:)

Andrea I June 7, 2010 at 6:24 PM  

I don't think I've read any of her books. I'll definitely looke for her new Blaze releasing in August.

Lady_Graeye June 12, 2010 at 2:03 AM  

Hey Lisa,
I haven't read your book though I am very intersted in it. What actors/actresses do you see cast as Luke and Kate? And why?
