In Heat, one of our heroes, Devon, has an addiction to a sweet he’d never tasted before – Jelly Babies. My first taste of jelly babies as a child was clearly a good one, as I absolutely love the things! Although I can only eat about ten at a time, as they are very sickly sweet!

TNA: Hi, A.M., welcome to The Novel Approach. I’m happy to have you here with us today. Why don’t we start by having you tell us a bit about yourself?

A.M.: Hello! I’m so happy to be here celebrating the releases of Stand By you and Foundation of Trust. Thank you for having me. As for telling you about me, I consider myself remarkably boring. Single mom to a very needy cat. I like to experiment in the kitchen, which can be at times fulfilling, and at other times disastrous. I have been writing fiction since I was a teenager, and I found my way into m/m romance through fanfiction (oh Kish). My goal is to be able to quit my day job in retail so that I can write full time, and one day retire to a quiet little cottage, on a lake, somewhere in the mountains of North Carolina.

BillionaireWithBenefits_TourBannerHello, and welcome to the Billionaire with Benefits Blog Tour! *fanfare, etc*

You might have noticed this book took me a while to write . . . or maybe you didn’t notice, but take my word for it, it did. That might be why it ended up longer than it needed it to be. Ultimately we trimmed over 15,000 words from the original Billionaire manuscript, so posts from me (as opposed to spotlights and reviews) are all going to be cut scenes from the book. Sort of like the extras on a DVD, but, you know, not. Continue Reading
