Interviewing For Her Lover: Six Nights of Sin (#1) by Ellis Day

18++ Q. – So, why should someone read the Six Nights Of Sin series?
Because it’s hot – really, really hot and it’s well written. 
The story is kinky and erotic but at the core is love. The two main characters must journey to find that love but it’s there waiting for them if they’re willing to take a chance. For Sarah, this is her second chance and perhaps her last if she doesn’t discover how to move on from the past.


This is erotica with love. So, it's only intended for those eighteen and older.

Sarah wants a lover, but she wants one on her terms. She doesn’t have time to date and picking a guy up at a bar is not only dangerous but it doesn’t guarantee he’ll let her act out her fantasies. When she hears about La Petite Morte Club—a place for willing males and females to meet with rules and contracts so that all parties leave satisfied—she knows it’ll be perfect.

She signs up with the club and starts the process of finding the man who’ll be her lover for six nights. Six nights of fantasy—his and hers. Six nights of sex and then they’re done. Simple, uncomplicated and fun, but she doesn’t count on Nick’s ability to make her desire everything he has to offer and more.

Warning: This series has hot, steamy, sometimes kinky sex and is meant for mature readers only (18 and older).

Interview with the Author
Q. – So, why should someone read the Six Nights Of Sin series?
Because it’s hot – really, really hot and it’s well written. 
The story is kinky and erotic but at the core is love. The two main characters must journey to find that love but it’s there waiting for them if they’re willing to take a chance. For Sarah, this is her second chance and perhaps her last if she doesn’t discover how to move on from the past.

This series also has a rich, alpha male and who doesn’t love to read about handsome, billionaires with hearts of gold? I know I love reading these kinds of books and writing them. I truly believe that one of the cornerstones of a great relationship is fabulous sex and my books have that and more. 

On top of all those reasons, you’ll get your first glimpse into La Petite Morte Club—a sex club where almost anything goes as long as the participants are willing. There will be at least four additional series surrounding this club and possibly more, depending on what characters pop out of the woodwork as we wander deeper into the club and its activities.

Q. – Who should read the Six Nights Of Sin series?
These books are packed full of kinky, explicit sex with some bondage, bdsm and submission scenes. So, they’re meant for mature readers of 18 years and older. I don’t gloss over the emotions or the actions. It’s all there in hot, graphic detail, so get your glass of wine and a fan, and enjoy Sarah and Nick’s adventure. Anyone college age and older who likes contemporary romance, new adult and erotic should love this series.


What is something unique/quirky about you? 
I think we all believe we’re normal, but special. My friend at works swears I should have my own reality TV show. Obviously, he doesn’t think I’m normal. I have five dogs and four cats. I live in the woods. I cook the food for my pets—have for years. I have an entire system set up—two additional freezers just for turkeys when they go on sale before Thanksgiving, and a “dog” fridge where I keep the big pots of dog food. I’ve been doing this so long, it’s normal to me, but I guess not to others. I also get up in the middle of the night and exercise. I won’t do it unless there is the possibility of going back to bed. I did some research and until the advent of electric light, people had two sleeps. They always got up in the middle of the night – so I’m not odd, just truer to our real nature (yeah, right). 

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you! 
When I was a junior in high school, I was at the St. John Kmart in Indiana. A gunman came into the store and shot it up. People died. It was surreal. I’d only gone to the store that day to get my schedule (I worked there part-time) so I could decide if I should go out with a boy who was dating a girl I hated. He’d asked me and even though I knew it was wrong to go out with him when he was dating her – I really, really hated her. So, I decided to see if the decision would be made for me. If I had to work, then I couldn’t go. My father and baby niece were with me that day. It was terrifying. I didn’t go on the date. 

What are some of your pet peeves? 
I hate the phrase, It is what it is. Too many people use it as an excuse for things they could change if they wanted to. For example: “I don’t like my job, but it is what it is.” No. It’s not. Get a new job if you’re that unhappy. Or another one, “I’m too heavy but it is what it is.” No, it’s not. Eat less. Exercise more. Do something. I’ve tried to lose weight and it’s hard, but it isn’t an “It is what it is” situation. 

I also hate it when people don’t spay and neuter their pets or they have to buy a pure bred dog or cat. Adopt. Don’t buy. So many dogs and cats die every year because no one wants them. I once actually didn’t recommend someone for a job because she let her cat have litter after litter of kittens. She was qualified for the job but I recommended someone else (who was also qualified). 

What are your top 10 favorite books/authors? 
Oddly enough, I really don’t read much anymore. I used to read all the time, but now, I’m so busy writing, editing and marketing my own books, that I don’t have much free time, but I’ll try and answer. 
I love books by Julia Quinn. Her characters are funny and her writing style is light and fun. 
I love Shakespeare. His writing style isn’t light but his stories are great. 
I went through a Stephen King and Carl Hiaassen phase. 
The book “Taxi Cat and Huey” is a hoot. I read it to my nieces and nephews. 
Watership Down and the Godfather are favorites of mine. The Dune series – by Frank Herbert was great. I never read anything by his son but those might be great too. 

Advice they would give new authors? 
First, write. Don’t worry about getting it perfect, just get it down. Just like Jodi Picoult said, “You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.” I let the stuff out of my head and put it on paper. Sometimes a lot is back story that ends in the trash but I need to know this. I need to know my characters before I can tell their tale.

Second, if you don’t know how to market, take a marketing course. I signed up for Nick Stephensen’s Your First 10K Readers and my sales have quadrupled. It’s a lot of work and takes time and money, but if you’re serious about becoming a full-time author, do it.

What are they currently reading? 
I’m not. I tend to read and read and read my books over and over again to edit them. I seldom have time to read other people’s books. I’m hoping I can pick that up again once I can quit my day job. 

How long have you been writing? 
I actually sat down to “really” write in April of 2012 – so about 5 years. I’d graduated with a Bachelor’s in Creative Writing in 1996 but I never put it to use. In 2012, I signed up for a fiction writing course with Writer’s Digest and wrote my book (it actually became two books in my YA Fantasy series The Lake Of Sins). 

What is your writing process? For instance do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first? 
I’m more of a pantser. I get an idea or meet a character in my head and let them lead me. Sometimes, chapters come to me – I call them scenes. I write them down and fit them in the story later. I like writing this way because my characters take me places I never would’ve gone on my own.
