INTERVIEW: Silvia Violet and #Giveaway!

Hello Silvia and welcome to The Hat Party! <3 Thank you so much for subjecting yourself to the RANDOMNESS that is a Raine O'Tierney interview! Please don your best hat, and let's get started!

On a scale 1 (super chill) to 10 (falling apart at the seams) how cool are you when it comes to reviews?!

Right in the middle at 5. Much of the time I manage to stay chill but occasionally something hits me hard.

You’ve been given the opportunity to go back in time and give your 13-year-old self a message. What do you say?

Enjoy your twenties to the fullest. You don’t always have to be the responsible one.

Be totally honest. How awesome would you be at leading a moon colony?

I’m a good leader. I’m organized and I can get a group to listen but for a moon colony, I’m not your girl. I get airsick and I like my luxuries.

You have 200 words—Make. Me. Swoon. (PLEASE!)

This is an excerpt from If Wishes Were Horses…

“Fine. Don’t tell me who you really are. You know what? I don’t even give a damn right now. I don’t want to know your fucking secrets. I want to pretend you’re exactly who I’d like you to be. A hot cowboy who likes walking around the ranch, looking like sin in skintight jeans that were made to drive a man fucking insane. Right now you’re just the man who’s been fucking me six ways from Sunday, and that’s all I want you to be. But tonight, I’ll be the one topping.”

“Oh really?” Andy stood, legs slightly apart, arms at his side, ready to meet Ken’s challenge.

Ken moved toward him, never dropping his gaze from Andy’s. “Yes, really.”

“And what if that’s not what I want?”

Ken raised a brow and hoped Andy couldn’t hear his heart pounding. “You saying it’s not? You saying you don’t want me to pin you against the counter, drag that skin-hugging denim down your legs, and plow your ass until you’re crying like a little girl?” Ken stared at the hard ridge of Andy’s cock, which threatened to split the worn seams of his jean. “Don’t even try to deny it.”

“What are you going to do if I refuse? Think you can take me?”

“I won’t have to. You might be a cagey bastard about everything else, but this. This you have no power to resist.”

So, you were editing along and zombies attack. And they are on fire! What do you do?

Grab Jackson and Sport, my Navy SEALS, and hide behind them shamelessly.

What part of the writing process makes you inexplicably happy?

When I’m writing dialogue and it’s flying onto the screen from my fingers because I hear the characters and they are so real I’m sure they are right there with me.

What one food item do you consider to be your arch nemesis?

Krispy Kreme Chocolate-Iced Cream-filled doughnuts

Describe yourself using a literary quote.

“As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.” – Ernest Hemingway

Biggest mistake you’ve made in your writing career and what you’ve learned from it.

Not reading all the fine print in a contract.

And finally, for THE most important question of all: what kinds of dachshunds are the BEST kinds of dachshunds?

miniature dachshunds

Kenneth Carver had everything growing up except warmth and acceptance. When protecting his family’s name became more than he could bear, he came out as gay, sold his company, and bought a horse ranch.

Andrew Wofford's last undercover assignment nearly cost him his sanity. Now he has another chance of catching the drug runner who killed one of his informants and then escaped, but gruesome flashbacks threaten his ability to function in the field.

Andy’s latest investigation sends him to Ken’s ranch where he poses as a ranch hand. Ken is a prime suspect, but Andy refuses to believe Ken is guilty, in part because Andy is falling for him. Ken knows Andy isn’t who he seems, but he can’t bring himself to push the man away. When Ken hears rumors that someone is using his land to move drugs out of the city, he worries that it’s Andy. Neither man can trust the other even though that’s exactly what their hearts tell them to do.
