Absolutely Erotic Blog Hop Interview with S. A. Meade

Welcome to a stop on the Absolutely Erotic Blog Hop, where we’re showcasing erotica and erotic romance authors from the Absolute Write forums. Each day, interviews will be posted, and when it’s all said and done, some lucky commenter will win a huge prize!  Click here for the entire blog schedule and details about the contents of the prize, and how to win an armload of ebooks, a $25 Amazon gift card, and more.

Today, I’m hosting the talented S.A. Meade, who I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with over on the Absolute Write Forums. I am deathly afraid of the vicious-looking plot bunnies she has in her avatar over on AW.

Hi, S. A.! What draws you to romance, in particular M/M romance?
I’ve always loved romance, ever since I accidentally picked up a Victoria Holt novel in the junior high school library. That was it, I was hooked. I’m a dreadful one for day-dreaming and writing romance seems a good way to put those day dreams on paper, as it were.

As for M/M romance, that was a bit of an accident too. I love men, I love writing male characters. I am most definitely not a girly girl. Show me a dolly and I’ll run away screaming.

If you came with a warning label, what would it say?

Ha, I can relate to that! What’s the best part of publishing your book, from start to finish?
Getting that initial ‘Yes please, we’d love to publish it’ and also holding the print copy in my hot little paws.

What’s the worst part? 
Waiting for a decision on a submission, it destroys my elusive mojo.

What do you think is sexy?
Not the sex itself, the flirting, the build-up, a stolen glance, a furtive but heated touch.

How often do you Google yourself?
Maybe once a week.

Do you read reviews of your book?
Yes. I’m a glutton for punishment. It’s always good to see what people think. I want to know if I’m writing books that readers enjoy.

What’s the one thing readers can always count on when they pick up a book written by you?
Angst, hurt/comfort.

If you could pick anyone in the world to be the cover model(s) on your latest release, who would it be?
Aidan Turner.

If one of your titles could be made into a movie, which would it be and who would play the lead roles?
Oh, without a doubt, Stolen Summer. I can’t tell you how tempted I am to whack a copy in a padded envelope to send to Russell T Davis. As for who would play the leads, a slimmed down Sam Worthington would make a very nice Evan and Aidan Turner for Colin.

When you're not writing, what do you do for fun?
Cook and drool at recipes online.

How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?
With a muted ‘woot’. My husband was upstairs having a nap. We were stony broke so there was no celebratory meal or champagne.

Can you tell us a little about your latest release?
My last release was ‘Lord of Endersley’, it’s the first of a series set around a house in Wiltshire. The first part takes place in India during the Sepoy Uprising of 1857. It was a lot of fun to write because I’ve always wanted to write a book set in that place and time.

How can readers connect with you? Do you have a blog?
I have a neglected blog

What’s your current book list and where can we buy them?
My books are available here:

Thank you for visiting this stop on the Absolutely Erotic Blog Hop! Please be sure to visit S. A. Meade’s blog tomorrow to read an interview with the lovely Erin Lark, and comment for more chances to win the grand prize! And a special thanks to the wonderful L. A. Witt for organizing this fantastic blog hop!
Lord of Endersley

Will the passion ignited during a violent uprising survive the rigid confines of Victorian society? Jacob Endersley is glad to escape the confines of his family home for the exotic and dangerous beauty of India during the glory days of the Raj. Marcus Billington, an Army officer, is tired of the stifling social mores of life in a British enclave. When the Sepoy Uprising o 1857 leads to chaos and bloodshed, the two men seek the safety of Agra and find refuge in each other. Once the rebellion is quashed, Jacob returns to England while Marcus remains in India. They have no hope of a future together until Jacob learns that Marcus has returned to England. When they meet again, Marcus makes it clear there can be nothing between them and Jacob returns to Endersley resigned to a solitary life until Marcus arrives out of the blue and then everything changes.
