Are we there yet?

SEx ... Silver Expressions

So, blogging today. Are we there yet? First I have to figure out how to start a new thread then we can talk. Let's call this "ask me anything" day. Sort of like truth or dare.

Your turn.

Okay. Looks like I did it right. I'm so proud of me. LOL

Now, first, I have to tell you that I'm a night owl. I'll be gone for a few hours today to get in a nap, then I'll be around.

Major ouch this morning. Trying to rescue my cactus that I forgot on the deck last night and of course, it snowed, I brushed my hand against it in my hurry to drag it inside. Very itchy and red right now. Those little spines are really hard to get out.

This is becoming one of my regular stops every morning. I love the fact that you never know what the day's blogger will discuss. Evidentally with Rhiannon we are going to watch her nap! LOL
Happy snow day, everyone. If we're stuck with it we might as well try to think of it as pretty. Remember those days, when you could still enjoy snow 'cause you were a kid with a sled instead of a grown up with a car?

I just want to know where she's napping?! She keeps a cactus outside where it snows? We've got things called Jumping Cactus' out here in AZ that don't actually jump, but the second anything brushes up against it, even the slightest bit, it's stuck to you and it takes FOREVER to get off. Not fun!

Good morning (or afternoon), Rhiannon!

My truth or dare question is, are you really sleeping during the day because you've been out all night with the Ravens hunting vampires?

Remember--I want the TRUTH.

Yes, where are you that you already have snow. Down here in Texas, we are just now breaking out long sleeve shirts. I am still seeing people in shorts here. Mind you I am not one of those people. I love to have an excuse to wear a sweater. Maybe I should move a little farther north. :)

Okay, I have two questions....
Other than writing, what is your favorite thing to do? If you could go anywhere at all, where would you go and why?

Happy snow day, everyone.

Hee, snow day? The Santa Ana winds picked up yesterday (while I was on the Santa Ana Freeway *rolleyes*) and we're enjoying a balmy 75 degrees with no clouds and a light breeze.


Mmmmmmmm.

Hi Rhi

Hope you had a good nap.

My truth or dare question is: Which of the heroes in your books do you most want to take to bed and in what way?

Hi Bonnie,
Well I'm finished napping now so maybe I should really introduce myself, huh?

I'm Rhiannon Neeley, author of the Raven Series and some hot contemporary romance. You can check out my website at www.rhiannonneeley.com and see everything I've got coming up.

Paige,
Yes, I had a cactus outside. I forgot the poor thing out on the deck because yesterday it was seventy degrees. Today it's twenty-six! Go figure...

Dee,
Leave it to you to think that I've been out with vampires all night. LOL Of course, you never know. I do sort of live a vampire like life with the hours that I work.

Well, right now my favorite thing is to play violin, which I have to leave in a bit for my lesson, then I'll be right back.

And where would I go? I'd love to go to Ireland. My ancestors come from Ireland and I feel very drawn to the landscape there.

Jenny asks:

Whoa Nellie...which? You're asking me to choose? Well, how about Devon Lake, the hero in my upcoming Liquid Silver release "I'm No Saint, Valentine"? "I'm No Saint, Valentine" is a duet that I really enjoyed writing with Dee S. Knight. Devon is someone I think of as a 'once in a lifetime' sort of meeting. If you pop over to forum, you can read all about it. I'll post the blurb here in a few minutes...

Candy Hearts and Flours

by Dee S Knight


In the depths of Hell, things aren’t much different than here on Earth. There, as here, fathers find their daughters to be difficult … creatures. And, there, as here, lessons are posed when behavior is unacceptable. In the case of Mariah Luce, a demon who just can’t seem to get evil down to a science, instruction comes in the form of a short visit topside. Her mission? To find a saint of a man and seduce him. In other words, to corrupt someone incorruptible. If Mariah can pull this off, she'll be evil!


At the other end of the spectrum, Joseph Patrick Benedict Smith has been an angel for centuries. His colleagues spent their time on Earth fighting devils or saving towns from floods, experiencing holy visions or converting whole nations to God. Not Joseph. He baked bread. Now he longs to do something huge, something he can point to with pride of accomplishment, and he’s being given the chance.
For one week, Las Vegas will host a humble baker as he strives for perfection in the Candy Hearts and Flours contest, and a determined demon who scours the city looking for one sainted man. Can she withstand the urge to be good, and can he resist the sweet pull of temptation?

Sindulgence

by Rhiannon Neeley


Clarice Johnson is divorced and happy about it. She’s also found a new hobby—reading erotic romance. But there is something lacking in her life…someone to show her just what being ‘erotic’ means. When Devon, the bookstore clerk who is barely older than Clarice’s adult son, asks her for coffee he gives her a taste of what seduction is about. Yes, he’s young. Yes, he’s gorgeous. Yes, her thoughts about him are sinful…but what’s wrong with a little indulgence? A little...Sindulgence?


Devon Lake is slightly older than the regular college guy but far more mature. He sees in Clarice a classic grace that few women have, and few men know to cherish. So what if she’s older. Age doesn’t mean a thing. Seeing her in the bookstore, noticing her taste for erotic romance, Devon sets out to show her another side of sensuality.
When the two of them come together, they almost go up in flames. The only problem is, will Clarice’s son allow them to dabble in Sindulgence?

How do you pick out your character's names?


You find yourself stranded on a desert island, what three things could you not survive without?

Hi there Amy! Picking characters names. Sometimes they just come to me. I sort of have a picture of what they look like and "who" they are in my mind when the name comes to me. And sometimes for minor characters, I use a baby name book. LOL

Stranded on a desert island huh? Well, I'd love some warmth right now. Okay, I'd have to have coffee. And my husband. And pencil and paper so I could write. Okay, that's four things but I'm greedy.

Rhi,

If you could have any job in the world, what would you do? Money is not to be considered.

Rhiannon,

I don't know if you have been to Ireland or not. My sixteen year old spent his Spring Break there on a school trip. Unfortunately, I did not tag along. The pictures he took and stories he told upon returning were amazing. It would truly be worth the trip.

Violin - I am impressed to say the least. Best I can do is sing along with the radio and I am not promising that is all that pleasant.

Blogger Rhiannon said...

Jessica,
How wonderful for your son to spend time in Ireland! I would love to go sometime. I love the craggy shorelines and the green hills I see in pictures. Plus I still have 'shirt-tail' relatives there.

Don't be impressed by my violin playing. LOL You should have heard me at my lessons today with a bandaged hand thanks to the cactus incident this morning.

Hi Lisa,
I would love to be a full time author. Not have to worry about going to my real job. That would be my little slice of heaven.

Tracey! Hi Hon!
Okay, other than Devon I think Holt Raven would be my second choice. He's just soooo much man. LOL. And I basically take after Madison Woods, the heroine in John the Deliverer.

How long have you been writing? Does your family (ie..mom, sisters) read your books?

Sorry about you getting stabbed with those little spikes from the catus, they can really can be hard to get out. I hope you got them all.

Blogger Rhiannon said...

Hi Robin,
I've been writing for quite a few years now. I started out writing horror, my love of Stephen King spurring me on. Horror led to paranormal romance, then on to erotic romance. I still write in all these genres, including some mainstream work. I would say I've been writing now for over fifteen years but the first few years I didn't send anything out. Too scared and all that. After I started getting some of my short work published, I delved into some longer peices and then I found e-publishing and I was off and running.

My mom has read some of my work that has been in print and my sisters have read some of my electronic work. They like my work, or at least that's what they say to my face. LOL

Rhi asked which is your favorite Raven?

ROGUE because Rogue loves women and women love him. Any guy who looks closely enough to find something cute in most any woman is a good guy!

And I have an idea. Let's tour Ireland together and promote I'm No Saint, Valentine.

Sounds like fun! Ireland touring...whew...how much whiskey ken ye drink, lass? LOL

Rogue is a 'ladie's man' in the way he loves them. Young, middle-aged and of-an-age, Rogue doesn't care. He just loves them because...

Thanks Cece.
A little Sindulgence...what's so wrong with indulging youself once in a while? Nothing, I say. So, if you had the chance, what would you indulge yourself with? Keep in mind that you can't hurt anyone in the process...

Rhiannon,

My son has decided he wants to go back to Ireland for his honeymoon. Mind you, he is only 16 and doesn't even have a girlfriend.

The pictures made me want to travel there also. Now, I just need to convince the hubby to fly across an ocean. I did good to get him to fly to Chicago from Dallas.

Hope your hand recovers quickly.

Hi Rhi,

I've not had the opportunity to read any of your stories, yet. So I went to the Liquid Silver site and read about your books. Series stories are one of my favorite reads.

I see that there are 7 books in the Raven series. So my question is about writing a series. Did you plan for this to be a series and have the story/plot lines and characters planned before starting the first book? Or, did each next book develop as you were writing?

I enjoyed reading the excerpts for this series and have put them on my tbb list. :)

Hi Rhi,
if you do get to Ireland there are two places I think you gotta see. One is Roe Valley, they have a great legend there about one of the kings jumping his horse over a canyon to get away from the English and there is a horseshoe print in the actual rock where he supposedly jumped. (there is more to the story but I don't remember)
And you've gotta go to Bush Mills. Free Whiskey, Wohoo! :)
