Welcome Ellora's Cave author, Scarlett Sanderson!!

Hi Scarlett, great to have you here today!

Ellora's Cave continue to be one of the most popular erotic romance publishers to write for and buy from. Why do you think this is? How are they to work with? Have you worked with the same editor on all your stories?

I love finding out about different publishers!

Okay, on with the questions...

1) Did you set any goals for 2011?

As boring as it sounds, no I didn’t. At the beginning of 2011 I was experiencing a lull in my writing. I’d had a few releases with The Wild Rose Press, but I was focused on writing a novel. It wasn’t my usual genre and I felt a little bit lost.

Then in August I signed with Ellora’s Cave and it’s been none stop since. I do have plans for 2012 though J

2) What is the best part of the writing process for you?

Seeing the finished product. There is nothing as exhilarating as the feeling of seeing something you’ve created enjoyed by other people.

3) The worst part?

Finding the time to write and not get distracted. Sometimes, after a hard week at work all I want to do is surf the net, watch some tv, clean…sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation even though the characters are clawing at your mind.

4) What is the book you wish you’d written?

Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning. It’s just a mind blowing, amazing book! The gradual build up through the series and then bam! I really wish I’d created Jericho Barrons J

5) Tell us about your latest release?

My latest release is out tomorrow, December 14th. It’s a Christmas novella called At Their Command. It’s sexy and sassy, and Christmassy.

7) Tease us with a blurb/short except

All Hope wants for Christmas is Ethan St. Claire. She’s had a thing for him since high school, when he was the bad boy and she was the class geek. Now she’s older, wiser…and dying of sexual frustration. Fantasies of having Ethan and his best friend Dominic at the same time drive her wild with unsated lust.

Ethan has always loved Hope, and he’s finished waiting for her to realize they’re meant for each other. He’s taking command and giving Hope exactly what she needs. If she’s nice, he’ll give her a sexy spanking. If she’s naughty, he and Dominic will double her pleasure as an extra-lusty Christmas treat.

6) What is your favourite attribute of the hero and heroine?

My favourite attribute of Ethan St. Claire is his determination to have Hope. Although he’s the bad boy of the town, he’s kept his feelings hidden from Hope, but now, at Christmas, he’s determined to have her. To me, that is sexy!

Hope has always loved Ethan and it’s her patience that floored me when I was writing the story.

7) What’s next?

I have a novella called Owned by the Night coming out January 11th. It’s a vampire erotica. It’s probably one of the darkest things I’ve written.

I’m also in the process of writing two other stories which I hope you will see sometime next year.

8) Tell me where you write?

I write in my lounge. I have a huge wooden desk with pens and notes. I just sit there at my computer and write. I also carry a pen and paper around in my purse, just in case I get ideas while I’m out. It’s like a mini desk!

9) Where would you like your career to be in 5 years?

In 5 years time, I’d love to be writing full time. I’m happy when I’m writing, creating, so I would love to do it as my day job.
