Giveaway and The Rack with MaryLynn Bast and her book Werewolf Bound!!

Good Morning my succulent subscribers!  I have a few treats for you!  I'm officially kicking off the Rack and MaryLynn has volunteered as my first victim during her tour!  So without further adu:

Hello and Welcome to the dungeon!  I’m so glad you could join us in the torture chamber today, just slide the chains over and have a seat.  Watch out for Marcus..he bites…hard. Aria won’t though. My pets have to get used to visitors.  They aren’t used to seeing our……mobile.  Would you like a drink?

I have never been to anyone else’s dungeon before and your…uh…pets are lovely. Aria sure is friendly.  As for the drink, I’ll try whatever you are having.

That’s my girl and I’m so glad you are sitting down because it has quite a kick!!  Lol!

So tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am from Texas but moved to Las Vegas in 2010. By day, I work with a company who contracts with the US Military. When not in between contracts, I travel from base to base around the world on three months assignments. I am married to a wonderful man who also travels across the US. We see each other every six weeks or as often as we can. Lots of time away, but it works for us right now. I have three grown children, no grandchildren, hoping for some one day, but not anytime too soon.

Do you have any hobbies? I love to travel to new places, so checking out your dungeon has been an adventure for me.  What is that device you have over there in the corner?
That is one of Jason’s favorite posts!!  I’ll give you a demonstration later…Eve !! Strap Jason in so he is ready when we are done!!  And don’t forget the ball gag this time!!

What was your biggest influence that steered you towards writing?
As a kid, having a homelife that sucked, I buried my face in books to escape. When I didn’t have anything to read I started writing and it just continued. Writing for me is a way of escaping into my own little world(s) that I create.
And by the way, Marcus is eyeing me and inching closer, should I be afraid?
Yes…let me settle him.  I don’t want him to get too excited…ahh theres Eve with Jason…Marcus …look who is visiting us..............................  And there he goes!

Tell us about WereWolf bound.
Adam is a human living and working among werewolves. A young female from a neighboring pack is sneaking over to see him. Adam doesn’t heed the warnings of the brothers to stop seeing her and they attack him, leaving him for dead. On a rollercoaster ride of his life he runs head long into trouble when he hears a woman scream in the woods and his life is forever changed.

How many books are you planning in this series?
At the moment 5 novels and lots of short stories are planned, but I have a feeling the novel counts may be increasing because new muses keeps

I have to ask, what are the hardest scenes for you to write? I don’t really struggle with writing scenes. When I have an idea, I just let the muse run with it and they sometimes take off in a different direction than I intended, but it usually works out. If I were to choose anything specific though, I think the opening scene is the toughest since it has to grab the reader’s attention.

Are any of your characters reflective of you? In my first erotica story One Bite To Passion, Paige is based on my work assignment to Japan last year. Let’s just say the names have been changed to protect the not so innocent. ;)  Amber in No Remorse is a big reflection of me too, the feeling of being alone while traveling so much hits very close to home with me. And now that I think of it, I can relate to Trina as well, and with the male characters, well, they are just my perfect man of my dreams brought to life in my own little world. 

Who is your favorite book heroine? Is it wrong for me to say Amber from No Remorse?  The only character that really stands out for me is Anita Blake. Although her life is in shambles at times, who wouldn’t want all these guys crawling all over themselves to get to her? Speaking of, Marcus is crawling up my leg right now. o_O
Lol…That’s Aria…She won’t bite.

Seriana intrigued me.  She is mentioned at the end of Werewolf Bound.   Can you tell me your plans for her? Seriana intrigued me too. I think you will be happy to know that I am expecting her story back from the editor this week and will be getting ready to publish next week. I don’t want to spoil the surprise and give any spoilers away.

What is your favorite mystical creature? Werewolves of course.

Do you have any advice for new authors? Do lots of research when deciding what you want to do with your book and who you decide to work with. There are lots of resources out there, some of these not so scrupulous people will charge, or overcharge

Where are your books available? Amazon

What can we expect from you in the future? In the Heart of a Wolf Series I am currently working on a story with a few characters I introduced in Seriana’s story as well as novel 2 – Softest Touch. Amber has another story coming up as well as Marcello, Winona and eventually Gabriel.

Where can we reach you and become informed of updates?

Dungeon Fun

So I’m going to take you on a little tour of our…..facility.  Just a few questions and I’ll introduce you to our prison...errr guests J

Whips or chains? Why not both?
A girl after my own heart!!!!

Leather studded bodysuit or corset top? Corset top

Fishnets or garterbelt? Garterbelt

Leather pants, mini, or a long skirt slitted up both sides? Long skirt slit up both sides, I like to tease.

Lace up boots or high heels? I am rather fond of lace up boots.  Ummm, uh… not that I have any.
Don't worry!  I have plenty!

Ball gag or blindfold? Blindfold, I prefer to have my mouth free.
Haha!  Most of our guests have ballgags….My babies get antsy with all the…screaming J

The rack or the whipping post? I this time around I would have to choose the rack.

Wine, mixed drink, or straight up? It depends on the mood. Usually mixed drinks, but straight up works if I want a quick buzz to relax followed by mixed drinks.

Candle wax or clamps? Hmmmm I think I will go with clamps
Excellent!  I just bought a new set to try on Jason!!  He will be so…happy!

I think I know just the play area to take you to!!  Here are your tools and clothing.  I’m taking MaryLynn with me to get …suited up..but we will be here all night to answer questions.
Sqweeee, I’m excited to get the grand tour!

Let’s go MaryLynn…I can’t wait to introduce you to Jason!  He was here last month!!
 Oh yummy, can’t wait to meet your guest! 

Before I run off to play, let me share with you the book details for Werewolf Bound:
Adam Channing knows the rules…during the Full Moon Phase— DON’T GO IN THE WOODS.
Yet, he can’t ignore the call of a young female werewolf Patricia DuFur. He knows it’s against pack rules, but can’t resist the temptation and faces the consequences when her three brothers attack and leave him to die.

With Blake as a friend, he is well on his way to learning the ways of being a werewolf. Adams is constantly in a state of change when he receives the gift of “Seer”. His life takes on a whole new meaning out in the forest.

You can take a look at my Review here!  So MaryLynn is giving aaway a copy of her book here!  Dont forget to check out the rest of the tour!! Anna is giving away a print version of this book @Reading Between the Lines!! Good Luck!!
