Interview & #Giveaway with @EMAbel4

I'm so excited to have E.M. Abel at DGR today so I can pick her brain and get as many teasers as I can about her upcoming release of Saving Jay. Saving Jay is book 3 in the Breaking Free series, but you may read it as a standalone (though I highly recommend reading the books in order since you first meet Jay in Freeing Asia.

If you haven't yet had the chance to discover this amazing series, don't miss the awesome giveaway below where you can win all the ebooks in Breaking Free or a SIGNED paperback of Freeing Asia!

Saving Jay is releasing on February 11, 2015



ABOUT SAVING JAY

Jay
My life was a dark and desolate place. Consumed by work and full of regret, loneliness had become my closest friend. Ink and a tattoo machine were my therapy, a way to claim my own skin with the art that I loved.
The day I walked into her shop, I knew I’d found what I needed.The light I’d been looking for.


Jade
When I first looked into those blue eyes I saw a depth behind them that I wanted to explore. Jason “Jay” Clarke was more than a perfectly pressed suit and dimpled smile. He was a man with a heart of gold drowning in the weight of his world.He wanted me to mark him.I never expected him to soothe my aching heart.

When our worlds collide and Jay begins to fall apart, will my love be enough to save him?

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

DGR: Hey E.M.! So excited to have you here at DGR today! Can we start out by having you introduce yourself to readers that aren’t yet familiar with you and your books?


EM: Hi! Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here. I’m E.M. Abel, author of the Breaking Free series— Freeing Asia, Breaking Shaun and Saving Jay. If I were to describe my books I’d say, they’re fun, sexy and lighthearted but still posses a range of emotion and a meaningful message.



DGR: What’s your writing process like and where do you get your inspiration from? 

EM: My writing process is kind of a mess. I don’t know if I’ve hit a real rhythm yet, but I usually need a month or so between books to clear my head and feel mentally ready to move on. I spend about seven months on average writing my books. I have a husband that works crazy hours and deploys, and I have two kids (ages 6&3) that also need a lot of time so I write when I can. My inspiration comes from my life, my family and friends and my fantasies all mixing together. 


DGR: Here’s an important question; tea or coffee? ;)

EM: I enjoy both but I drink coffee everyday… not tea. 


DGR: What’s your favorite part about writing or being an author?

EM: That moment when I get a message from a reader and he or she (usually she) tells me how much they loved my book. The thing about writing is, you’re creating something out of nothing. You’re taking words and trying to create something that moves people, something that makes them feel something, anything. So, knowing I can create something out of nothing and have people love it. That’s the best feeling ever. 


DGR: Now onto the more interesting questions… I love how you write these perfectly imperfect characters in your Breaking Free series, and I have a feeling Jay may be your best one yet. What can you tell us about him?


EM: Jay is a complicated man. For those of you who have read Freeing Asia, you know this already. He’s handsome, romantic and a pure gentleman but he’s also got a darker, dirtier side.


DGR: If you had to give us 5 words to describe Jay, what would they be? 

EM: Thoughtful, Mysterious, Commanding, Perceptive, and Sexy 


DGR: Saving Jay cover has some very delicious looking abs on it. I’m not sure if many people know that you actually take all the photos for your book covers; so, any inside scoop you can give us on the model for Jay? ;)

EM: It’s funny because every time I start a new book, I also have to start the process of finding a model for my cover. I knew the first two models personally. Freeing Asia’s model is my niece, Kenyia Dillon, and Breaking Shaun’s model is my friend’s brother, John Evans. So, for Saving Jay, I put an ad on Craigslist and… that didn’t work very well… LOL. So, after searching for a while, one of my friends and street team members suggested Casey West. I contacted him on Facebook, explained what I was doing and that I would need him at the beach at 5 a.m. for a sunrise shot and he agreed to do it. He’s a nice guy and was really easy to work with. Thank god, because I was nervous. I’m no professional. I just enjoy photography.

Casey has a Facebook page too so go check him out.

DGR: Have you had a favorite book in the series to write? Or maybe a favorite character?

EM: I don’t think I could choose a favorite book. Each one holds a special place in my heart. I’m sure you’ve heard authors referring to their books as their babies and they really are. They’re all a part of you and you love them all the same but for different reasons. Asia is probably my favorite character. She’s more like me than any of the others. 


DGR: If you had to pick one of your favorite scenes (without spoilers of course) in Saving Jay, what would it be?

EM: Let me just say, it involves rope and a mirror. 


DGR: Does Saving Jay mark the end for the Breaking Free series or do you plan more books for it?What’s next for you? 

EM: Yes, Saving Jay is the third and final book of the Breaking Free series. It’s bittersweet for me really, but I’m excited to move on to other projects. I’m already plotting my next book. I don’t have a title for it yet but it’s been on my mind for over a year now. I almost wrote it before Saving Jay but decided to wait. It’ll still be a romance but a little heavier than the Breaking Free series. I have a feeling it’ll challenge me both technically and emotionally and I’m eager to dive in. 


DGR: Anything extra you’d like to leave the readers with?

EM: For those of you who haven’t read my books, they are all standalones. Although they are a part of a series and some characters appear in more than one book, you can read each individually and still understand and enjoy the story.

To my readers and you ladies at DGR, thank you for your support.

And please come hang out with me on my Facebook page, blog, Instagram, wherever. I love meeting readers and making friends.

The rules:

No dating.

No sex outside of the game.

No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

Every girl needs three things
 1.  A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time.

 Meet Cooper

 My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin.  The brief contact stirs an ache inside me.  This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.

“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.

“Did I just what?”

She squints at me.  “You know.”

“Do I?”

“I felt your tongue on my hand.  You…you licked me.”

I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it.  It just sort of …happened.  “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”

“So you tasted me?”

My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation.  “I suppose I did.  But it wasn’t nearly enough.  That brings us back to my invitation for dinner.  Tomorrow night?”

“I can’t.”

“The day after then?”

She laughs and shakes her head.  The sound makes me smile.

“Good night, Cooper.”  She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.

2.  A best friend to talk about him to.

Meet Sadie

“And?”

“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”

“How was his office?”

“Really?  That’s what you want to know.  Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract?  How was his office?”

“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”

I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass.  “His office was beautiful.  Sleek, overlooking the city.  It oozed power.”

“Nice.  Bet he fucks like he owns you.”

The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought.

“Go on,” Sadie prods.

I don’t continue immediately.

“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?”  My best friend smirks knowingly.

“Shut up.”  I pause.  “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

“Well, him.  Obviously.”

“I wish it were that easy.”

3.  A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.

Cooper – behind closed doors.

“You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet.  Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them.  When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen.  You know why?  Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good.  Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically.  Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute.  So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy.  Now let’s put the rest of this behind us.  Do you want to be with me tonight?”

After that prelude, I nod my head fast.  I’m no fool.  Who wouldn’t?

Are you ready for Mariana’s story in this heart-wrenching NEW series!?
RELEASE DATE: January 27th

BOOK SUMMARY

My name is Mariana Rodriguez.

I used to be just like you - a regular girl, with a regular life.

But it was all a lie.

Nothing about my life was normal.

It was all make believe.

It was good, while it lasted.

But now?

Reality's caught up to my family.

It was always just a matter of time.

His eyes lit up at that as his gaze travelled across my chest and wandered down to the most private of places. I was clothed and covered in the right places, but in front of him, I felt completely naked. The feeling was unnerving and delicious all at once, which only confused me further.

So he’s sexy as hell. It doesn’t matter. He’s the enemy.

‘It doesn’t matter anyway,’ I added hastily. ‘I’ve got a nasty case of the clap. Better not rape me or your pico might fall off.’ I thrust my chin out as I used the Spanish term for ‘small dick’, smirking at the Gypsy Brother as his warm hands continued to roam every bit of bare flesh on my arms.

Dornan laughed at my admission, a throaty noise full of gravel and insolence that made me increasingly unsteady on my feet.

‘I’m not going to rape you,’ he replied, amusement dancing in his dark eyes. ‘And you don’t have the clap. So don’t use that one on me.’
