Please join me in welcoming the effervescent, author of all things romance, award winning author, Michelle M. Pillow
Michelle is chatting with me about reality shows, her favorite food and sharing an excerpt.
She is generously running a contest to win one of her fabulous books.
(Contest details below)
Selena: If you could create and write your own reality show, what would it be about and what would the tag line for the show be?
Michelle: You know, Michelle Doing Stuff has a really nice ring to it. Tagline would be: Watch Michelle Do Stuff. Basically, I just get to go out and do whatever I want on the network’s dime.
However, I did see there was a America’s Worst Cooks show on the Food Network. I think I’m perfect for that one! Hey, maybe you can get that last interview you did, Mr. Fabio Top Chef Celebrity to hook me up with a spot? But I’ll only do it if the prize is you get to take home a chef and keep him/her.
Selena: LOL I’ll check with him.
What do you always have in your fridge?
Michelle: Diet Coke. It’s my go to after coffee. I also have to have French Vanilla liquid creamer.
Selena: If you had a no holds barred food day and could eat whatever you want for breakfast, lunch and dessert what would it be?
Michelle: Fried foods. Lots and lots of fried foods—pickles, green tomatoes, mozzarella stick, fries, onion blossoms, wonton, tator tots. . .Great, now I’m hungry, lol. I’m not a huge desert eater, but I do like chocolate. Ok, so that’s breakfast. Lunch would be chicken parmesan followed by a giant bowl of Fettuccini Alfredo followed by a chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and white gravy followed by more Fettuccini Alfredo but with a little grilled chicken on top this time and breadsticks followed by. . .Frick, now I’m starving. Thanks, Selena. Will be back after this gluttony binge.
Selena: LOL You’re most welcome, you know I always have your back.
I know writing and books are your passion, but besides those, what would your fridge magnet say for a career goal?
Michelle: Career Goal: First Woman Carrot Cake tester Ninja to Swim in a Vat of Chocolate. What can I say, I’m a overachiever.
Selena: Tell us about your latest release. Here is where you could give the book blurb and if you wish a short excerpt.
Michelle: My newest release is Dragon Lords 5: His Highness the Duke (in ebook, print later this year)
The Dragon Lords series is the first installment in my bestselling futuristic romance multi-series. The first four books center around the four Draig Princes, men who, unlike their cousins, have no problem with commitment as they enter their first ceremonies. Books 5-8 follow the lives and loves of the noble cousins, starting with the High Duke of Draig. Books 5-8 can be read separately from the first installment of the series, though I recommend reading the books in order.
I call it a multi-series, because it continues after the Dragon Lords with the Lords of the Var series, Space Lords series, Zhang Dynasty series, as well as the short stories Galaxy Playmates. For details or reading orders please visit http://www.michellepillow.com.
About Dragon Lords (Books 5-8)
The Noblemen brothers aren’t new to the sacred Qurilixian bridal ceremony. After several failed attempts at finding a bride, it’s hard to get excited about yet another festival. No matter how honorable they try to live, it would seem fate thinks them unworthy of such happiness–that is until now.
With very few words spoken and the shortest, most bizarre courtship in history, they will bond to their women forever. And once bonded, these men don’t let go.
The would-be heroine. . .
Aeron wants nothing more than to continue to live out her very long, solitary life in a small metal room listening to communications for the Federation Military. It’s not glamorous. It’s not even charming. But it’s safe. There’s no chance of getting hurt.
When she intercepts a communication about the impeding genocide of the Qurilixian people, she has no choice but to act. No one at the Federation seems inclined to do anything about the threat and suddenly it’s up to her to save a whole planet. Enlisting the help of her degenerate sister, Aeron finds herself signed up as a prospective bride to the very barbarians she’s trying to save.
The man who did not need saved. . .
High Duke of Draig, Lord Bron, is not looking forward to his seventh failed attempt at a marriage ceremony, but when he sees the lovely Aeron he knows instantly his years of waiting have finally paid off. The gods have blessed him with a life mate… or have they? His new bride is insistent she’s not there for marriage, but for a mission. It’s up to Bron to convince her to stay, or risk spending the rest of his life alone.
