Jennifer Lyon's "The Proposition" Blog Tour (Interview/Spotlight/Giveaways)


Welcome to our Virtual Book Tour of "The Proposition" by Jennifer Lyon brought to you by Book Monster Promotions.

The Plus One Chronicles

A wicked proposition…
A sensual possession…
A dark obsession...
The Plus One Chronicles: Searing passion and fiery vengeance collide in three explosive books.


Hi Jennifer, Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas! We are so excited to have you here today!
Thank you so much! I’m excited to hang out here today!

1. Can you tell us three things about yourself that we might not already know?

There’s probably not a lot people who read my blog don’t know, LOL!  I don’t have any big secrets, heck I don’t have time for secrets these days! Let’s see:
1)      I talk to myself around the house.  My husband and kids are used to it, they hardly notice any more J
2)     When I’m deep into a book, my characters wake me up at night, showing me scenes in my head. It’s frustrating because I have insomnia and don’t get enough sleep as it is. I’ve asked them to please keep all communicate between business hours . But they don’t listen.
3)     I love my Kindle and read almost exclusively on it now. I think it’s just easier on my eyes, plus all my books are literally in my hand, so it makes searching for a book I’ve read easier. 

2. What is your favorite type of character to write? Least favorite?

That’s an interesting questions. In some ways, secondary characters can be more fun to write, because they can get away more.   I don’t think I have a least favorite type—I find that if I don’t like working with a character, then something is wrong and I have to figure out what it is.

3. When you are deep into writing what is your biggest pet peeve?

Being forced to stop when I’m on a roll.  I have to fight to get to that point, so when it happens, I get frustrated when I have to stop.

4. Does music ever play a part in your writing process?

I sometimes use music to either set the mood, or drown out my internal editor which is the voice in my head telling me everything that’s wrong with the scene I’m writing.

5. Do you ever base characters off actual people you know?

My first instinct is to answer say no.  But then I think about Kat, the heroine in THE PROPOSITION.  She has a very similar injury to one that my son suffered.  I’m using that because my son’s courage and determination inspired me. But Kat is an entirely different persona than my son, living a very different life.  I think the correct answer is I use knowledge I learn from people to make my characters more authentic.

6. Tell us a little bit about "The Proposition" and why readers should check it out?

I think it will appeal to readers who like sexy, fast paced books with characters that have emotional layers.  Here’s the blurb:

Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.
Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.

7. What inspired you to write "The Proposition"?

Several things. As I mentioned above, my son’s injury played a part. I had written Kat years ago, but she was in the wrong story at the time and I shelved her story. After my son’s injury, I knew it was time to tell her story.
And I had stumbled onto the idea of The Plus One Chronicles when a friend of mine told me about his plus one arrangement.
But what brought all this together for me was the hero,  Sloane Michaels.  He’s larger than life, an ex fighter billionaire set on vengeance.  But once he sees Kat…a woman struggling with her own demons, he’s drawn to her like no one else. But he can’t have Kat and his vengeance, so now he’s faced with an impossible choice.

8. Can you tell us anything about the future books in this series? Anything we can look forward to?

The Plus One Chronicles will have at least three (shorter than traditional novels) books. Next up is POSSESSION, and after that is OBSESSION.  Because I’m self publishing these, I can put them out faster and have more control. Hopefully that will make a better reading experience for the reader.

Thank you so much for being here today and we hope you will come back again when the next book releases!!! J
Thank you again for having me! I love talking about books with readers!

After marrying and becoming a full time mom to three sons, Jen launched her career with the award winning Samantha Shaw Mystery Series and other romantic mysteries under the name Jennifer Apodaca. Later, she took the name Jennifer Lyon, combined her love of witches, alpha males and sizzling romance into another award winning series, the Wing Slayer Hunters.

Just saying "Hi" Jenn!

You have to agree there is someone "we" know who can bake too ;). I love Kat. Do I really have to wait until the end of May for more? I'll be good and wait patiently :).
