Tracey Cooper-Posey's "Kiss Across Chains" Blog Tour (Guest Post/Spotlight) + Giveaway


Welcome to our virtual tour stop of Tracey Cooper-Posey's Kiss Across Chains Blog Tour brought to you by Book Monster Promotions.

Why Vampires and Ménage and Time Travel?

I have acquired a reputation as a genre masher.  Name the sub-genre and it’s probably in there somewhere.  I have a series that is vampire time travel MMF ménage futuristic paranormal romantic suspense, for example. 
The Kiss Across Time series isn’t quite so extreme, although it has a few monikers of its own:  vampire time travel MMF ménage paranormal romance series.
I’ve been asked why the mash up?
The easy answer is “because.”   Because it’s fun.  Because I pressed buttons and that’s what came out.  Because I thought I’d see what happened when I stirred.  Because no one else is doing it. 
Because.
How I got to writing them is a bit of history.  I used to avoid paranormal like the plague.  I didn’t want to jump on the band wagon because I thought it would look like I was exploiting the popularity of the genre (I would have been).  At the time I genuinely didn’t like paranormal.  Confession: I didn’t enjoy Interview With The Vampire in either book or movie form. I found the movie self-conscious and Tom Cruise irritating (and short).  Brad Pitt was pretty, though.  Antonia Banderas was the one great moment in the movie, but I may be biased.
I never did get into Buffy, etc.
I was writing for Ellora’s Cave at the time, and they invited me to write for an anthology they were putting together with two of their top authors.  I jumped at the chance – I was a nobody author.  Then the two authors announced that the anthology was going to be paranormal.
Oh, crap.
I’d already signed the contract, so there wasn’t much I could do about it but dive in and write the story I’d committed myself to.  Besides, I would be appearing with the two BIG authors.  Pretty hard to pass up.
So I wrote what would end up being Solstice Surrender.  I made my heroine in the story a complete skeptic, just like me, and she fought and denied throughout most of the story (just like I would).  It was therapeutic and educational and an interesting thing happened:  I enjoyed myself.
I figured that one story was an aberration.  I didn’t want to upset my established readers by suddenly switching to the new, sexy genre.  So I continued to write romantic suspense.
Then I was ungraciously dumped from my day job one day, without warning.  I was given a large parting cheque – large enough to last for a while if we were careful, but the job market was terrible right then, so I started cranking out novels with a vengeance.  Not only that, I asked Ellora’s Cave what was hot, what was selling the best.  Yeah, I went for the money.
The Executive Director for EC asked if I could write MMF urban fantasy as they didn’t have anyone doing that.  “Sure!” I said.  I’d never read a) urban fantasy or b) MMF ménage.  I rolled into a four week marathon reading/research and writing cram session and produced at the end of it a three-novella MMF urban fantasy series that EC promptly published.
And I learned something else:  I love MMF ménage…and vampires.  My sort of vampires, anyway.  They’re not angst-filled, ennui-anchored sad sacks.  They walk in daylight, they fight hard for what they want and believe in and they love.  With gusto.
About ten years ago, the guts dropped out of the historical romance market.  Or at least, that’s what New York publishers told us and promptly stopped buying historical romances.  All the mid-list historical romance authors abruptly had to find new genres or new careers, including me, as I had just released my first historical romance with a legacy publisher.  I never published another historical romance again.
But I love and adore history and historical anything.
It didn’t take long for me to couple up in my head the idea of very long lived vampires + history.
Oh, mama!  Talk about a light bulb going off!
Vampires + MMF ménage + history.
Except history wouldn’t work, I was told.  So, pseudo history…time travel!!!  Even better!  There were all the complications that could happen from screwing with time, time jumps gone wrong…writer’s nirvana, in other words!
And that’s where I came up with the idea of vampires + MMF ménage + time travel.  It’s an explosive combination, too. Try it and see.



Kiss Across Time
(Kiss Across Time #1)
Genre: Time travel, MMF ménage romance, contemporary and historical settings
Format: ebook and print
Short novel length

*KISS ACROSS TIME will be FREE from July 24 - 28 for Kindle*

Description:
A single kiss can change more than one life…or two.

Taylor Yates is fired for insisting the Fifth Century Arthurian poet, Inigo Domhnall, existed. When she hears Domhnall’s lyrics in a death metal song, she engineers a meeting with lead singer, Brody Gallagher. An unintended kiss sends them spinning back to the poet’s time, when Saxons were pillaging King Arthur’s Britain. Brody’s all for kissing her again. More, he wants her to kiss his friend and lover, Veris, to see what will happen. When Veris’ kiss sends them back to the time of the Vikings neither man is willing to let Taylor simply walk out of their lives.

But Brody and Veris are more than lovers and sexual playmates, as Taylor learns when they investigate the kisses that send them across time. The secrets they share have the power to completely alter her life.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Kiss Across Swords
(Kiss Across Time #2)
Genre: Time travel, MMF ménage romance, contemporary and historical settings
Format: ebook and print
Short novel length

Description:
Taylor Yates never dreamed growing up she would end up happily living with two drop-dead sexy vampires and time-hopping through their thousand years of personal history. Her life is complete…or is it?

When she finds herself at the seige of Jerusalem during the first crusade, Veris doesn’t know her at all and doesn’t want to. Worst of all, he and Brody are total strangers, and Taylor drives a wedge in deep between them by trying to seduce Veris at their first meeting—not something a lady of the day does if she wants to keep her head. Taylor and Brody must woo Veris using the customs of medieval England, win his heart and his full commitment before Jerusalem falls in four days time—or when they return to their own time, their lives as they know them will be gone…
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Kiss Across Chains
(Kiss Across Time #3)
Genre: Time travel, MMF ménage romance, contemporary and historical settings
Format: ebook and print
Short novel length

Description:
It is four years since Taylor and Brody almost lost Veris during the First Crusade. Now they know how to control time jumps, they have settled into a very nearly perfect, nearly human life, raising their daughter Marit.

When Brody defies Queen Tira to protect Marit, the three of them jump back three days in time to collect evidence the queen set up Brody for a drug bust in retribution. The jump sends them back to Brody’s personal nightmare: Fifth century Constantinople.

While Brody survives as a flogged slave, Taylor masquerades as the wife of an aristocrat and searches for Brody to release him. They must wait for Veris to find them before jumping home and Taylor watches each brutal chariot race, wondering if this will be Brody’s last. Brody once died in the Hippodrome and he is human this time, too….
