Interview with Silvia Violet

1. Welcome,
Silvia. For those who might not be familiar with you, would you be a dear and
tell the readers a little about yourself? How did you get your start in the
writing business?

 

(S) Hi
everyone! I write erotic romance, and since I was first published in 2004, I’ve
written m/f, m/m/f, and m/m stories in lots of different subgenres including
historical, paranormal, sci fi, and contemporary. I’ve enjoyed creating
characters and stories my entire life but I began to write seriously with the
goal of being published in 2001.
 
2.  All writers fear
the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.
 
(S) When I can’t seem to move a story forward I usually do one
of two things – switch to another story for a day or so and then try again or
start writing down anything the characters are saying to me, sometimes this
comes out like stream-of-consciousness ramblings and sometimes it’s more like a
journal entry for a character but usually something sparks an idea and I start
writing a scene based on what I’ve gotten down.
 
3. Contrary to what some people envision about a romance
writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us.
With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend
your time?
 
(S) I homeschool my two children so a lot of my day is spent in
a very different world from my writing. If I’m not writing or dealing with the
business of writing or doing something with my children, I’m probably in the
kitchen. I love to try new recipes and baking is my favorite stress reliever.
 
4. I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their
pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are
their thoughts?
 
(S) My parents and my in-laws know what I do but I haven’t
shared my writer side with all of my extended family. My friends know and most
of the time if someone asks what I do I tell them I write romance and erotica.
I’ve even been known to hand out business cards when introduced to friends of
friends. I’m fortunate to have accepting people around me and not to have to
worry about being in a workplace where I have to hide. If I were still teaching
high school, I would probably be more circumspect.
 
5. Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If
you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.
 
(S) There is a long list and it includes writers from lots of
different genres so I’m just going to mix them up here. Jane Austen, P.G.
Wodehouse, Janet Evanovich, Mary Jo Putney, J.K. Rowling, Josh Lanyon, Hank
Edwards, Abigail Roux, Eric Arvin, TJ Klune.
 
6. If you could choose one book to go to the big screen,
yours or otherwise, which book would you choose and whom would you love see
casted in the parts?

(S) I
would love to see Finding Release,
the first book in my Wild R Farm series made into a movie, and I would want Joe
Manganiello to play the part of werewolf cowboy, Cole Wilder and Freddie Stroma
to play horse shifter, Jonah Marks.


 

 

 
 
7. Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now?
That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I
swear it’ll go no further. 

(S) I have several projects going right now. The one that will
be available first is Arresting Love
(Wild R Farm 2). 



Here’s the blurb:

Billy Lawson is
jealous. Every day he watches his boss, Cole, and his boss’s lover, Jonah,
prove again and again how deeply in love they are. Billy’s never had a real
relationship, and he didn’t believe true love existed until Cole proved
otherwise. Now, he longs for what Cole and Jonah have.
 
When he meets
Levi, a scared, wounded shifter who needs his help, he ignores the chemistry
that flares between them, thinking he’d be taking advantage of Levi at a
vulnerable time in his life. Before Levi can convince Billy they were made for
each other, his past catches up to him, and both men must fight for a chance at
love.
 
I’m also working on my first ever all male ménage. It stars
two cops and a bartender and it’s titled Fitting
In. I’m hoping to have it to readers in the early spring. 
 
8. Where can we find your stories and is there a particular
reading order? 
 
(S) You can find blurbs and excerpts for all my stories at my
website: http://www.silviaviolet.com 
While I do have some series that readers may want to follow in order,
you can really start anywhere you like. So pick a sub-genre you like and try
something out. *smiles* 

 

 
 
 
9. Would you please share how your present and future fans
can contact you?

(S) The easiest way to contact me is
through my website – http://silviaviolet.com/contact/ – or by messaging me on
Facebook – http://facebook.com/silvia.violet

 
 
10. Before we conclude this enlightening interview, do you
have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.

(S) I’d like to let readers know that
I have several free reads available. You can find most of them at my website (http://silviaviolet.com/extras/free-reads)
