This is SO Cool!!!

Bix and Carin from Carinian’s Seeker (Vampire Council of Ethics, Book 1) have been interviewed. I’ve read a few character interviews, and this one is really cool!

Thanks to my bud, Alyssa Brooks, for putting this together.

You can find Bix and Carin’s Interview here – just click and go! Drop me a note and tell me what you think.



If you’re a newsletter subscriber to TJ On A Tangent, you’ll get all the details and first round of questions in your e-mail today. If you’re not a subscriber…visit or on Friday the 18th ;D Look for the post entitled “Holiday Hotties Round 1.”

In the meantime, here’s the skinny:

HOLIDAY HOTTIES CONTEST!!! – From the second week in October clear through to the Christmas and Solstice holidays, the Holiday Hotties Contest is in full effect! (NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIBERS get to start playing several days ahead of everyone else ’cause ya’ll are special)

The Theme – Paranormal, Multicultural, Seasonal and Holiday romance and erotic romance. Yep, October, November and December have lots to celebrate, so why not do it in grand style?

Who’s A-Playin’? – We have some crazy out-of-this-world totally talented authors playing this year: Shelley Munro, L.A. Day, Natasha Moore, Sharon Cullen, Rhianna Samuels, Adele Dubois, Taige Crenshaw, Mechele Armstrong, Desiree Holt, B.J. McCall, Kelly Jamieson, Anne Hope and me, TJ Michaels.

Two Ways To Play – First you can enter by being an author’s personal fan. All fourteen authors (you’ll get a glimpse of new writers in each newsletter) have provided some questions for their fans. Last year, we have hints of what they’d like for Christmas. This year we decided to get a bit more personal. Note that each question will be about the author THEMSELVES, not about the books they write. It’s called “getting all into their business”. Evil grin!

For the next three months, here you will find questions from each author, along with excerpts and sexy book covers for these awesome authors. Visit their site, blogs and such for the answers to their questions.

Send the author’s name and your guess to the Holiday Hotties e-mail address (

For EVERY correct guess, your name goes into the hat for BOTH the monthly prize, and the final Grand Prize! And it is pretty darned grand. So for example, if we list three questions for L.A. Day, and you guess two of them correctly, your name goes into each hat TWICE instead of once. Yes, we know – we’re so awesome ;D

Second Way To Play – Simply leave a meaningful review for any TJ Michaels book (you can find them all on my website) and your name goes into the hat again. You can leave Samhain reviews at all of the following sites below, and Ellora’s Cave reviews on Amazon only:

Note: Please do not leave a review for a book you haven’t read. We want everyone to have a fair chance.

The GRAND PRIZE – A big holiday basket filled with goodies, including books, bags and special ‘stuff’ from the authors. All twelve of us!

LIVE OUTSIDE THE US?: Because of shipping issues with out-of-country winners in the past, if you are a international winner we will give you a gift certificate to purchase whatever you wish from your own country.

The Rules – Entries from the same person using multiple names/e-mail addresses will be disqualified. Example: Email 1 is from Carol ( and says, “Author Julie Hawt wants a golden tutu,” while email two is from Janie ( and says the exact same thing. ‘Tis a no-no.


Holiday Hotties is Coming… (xPost)

Hi all,

Last year we had a kick butt contest called Holiday Hotties. It was such a success we’re doing it again this year. Only this time instead of the contest covering just Christmas, we’re including Halloween and Thanksgiving, too!

So what does this mean for you? Basically we’re going to have a running contest that spans from October to Christmas. Each month, the TJ On A Tangent newsletter will contain excerpts from your favorite participating authors and questions about those fabulous writers.

A single winner will be chosen each month. Then at Christmas, everyone who has played has the chance to win one of three gift baskets of cool stuff from all of the authors.

What’s really cool is that your prize depends on the number of authors that participate. So if we have twelve participating authors and three winners, you each get four books and lots of goodies in your gift basket. If there are eighteen authors, each winner gets six books and oober-cool goodies!

So stay tuned…Holiday Hotties is coming!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
