Author, author.... Rose Wynters

...read all about it !!

Welcome, so great to have you here with us.  Can you tell us a little about yourself?

 Thanks so much for hosting me on your website. I'm very happy to be here. I'm Rose Wynters, writer of paranormal and erotic romance. I'm in my 30's but forever 21 :-), and I love to travel and spend time in nature camping. (But I'm not a nudist!)

Do real life events find their way into your stories?

I think in every story ever written, something of the author goes into it. In my books, it would have to be my funny side. By nature, I love to laugh and enjoy life as much as possible.

Do you ever mimic family members or people you know when you choose characters? 

No, I completely avoid that!

Do you find yourself going back to the same inspiration for each story or is it always something different? 

It's always different because each book calls for something different. I get some pretty crazy inspirations sometimes.

When do you write?  Early morning? During the day sometime or all day?  After the kids go to bed?

I'm a night owl. My absolute favorite time to write is nights, but that's not always possible.

How do you feel about marketing your book?

Some type of book marketing is always necessary. After that though, you just have to let your book speak for itself!

What social sites do you feel work best for marketing?

I've heard mixed reviews about using social sites for marketing. Some people swear by it, while others feel it didn't do anything for them. I do know Facebook and Twitter are excellent ways to keep in touch with your readers, and they seem to be the most popular.

Do you like to pitch stories to your publisher or do you wait until you have written the story and have a final manuscript to turn in?

I definitely like to wait until the story is written.

Is there any other genre that you would love to try writing?  If so, what is it?

I'm interested in doing a time travel romance.

Do you always/ever see yourself as the heroine/hero when you write a story?

Not so far. With as sexually exciting as the Endurers are, I'd probably have a heart attack!

Just for fun, I have a few personal questions, 

Favorite 5

1)      Favorite Male Actor  - Just one? Alexander Skarsgard in True Blood. Wow!
2)      Favorite vehicle – A luxury one lol.
3)      Favorite way to relax – An evening spent in bed, watching movies that I've been waiting to see.
4)      Favorite ice cream – Baskin Robbins rocky road.
5)      Favorite outfit – Jeans and a trendy shirt. You can't go wrong with that.

And for a bonus:  If you could pick any place in the world to live, besides where you are now, where would it be?  (Of course, without the hindrance of jobs or money needed)

Europe, probably London.

Where can our readers find you??

Is there an upcoming or current release you would like to share with us today and where can we find it?

 Rubenesque Rapture (Book 1 The Endurers) released in April. Curvaceous Condemnation (Book 2 The Endurers) in May, and the 3rd book in the series will be out in June 2013. They are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, etc. 

Rubenesque Rapture

Hell is hot to get their hands on Anna Andrews, determined to use her 
plus-sized body for breeding purposes. Attacked by demons in her remote cabin in Alaska, she is sure there is no way out until a mysterious Endurer rescues her at the last moment. He’s been sent to get her to safety in Las Vegas, but he never counted on the sexual attraction that flares immediately between them.

Shayne McLoughlin was born in the 1400’s and lived as a Monk, until a brutal attack destroyed his entire family, changing his life forever. Now an immortal Endurer that protects humanity from demonic beings, he expects his next assignment to be like any other. Until he meets the rubenesque beauty he has been sent to protect.

On the race to reach the safety of Las Vegas, they discover an explosive attraction that can’t be ignored. He can battle the demons that want her, but can he have victory over the power of her mind? Plagued by her past and an ex-boyfriend that used her in an attempt to satisfy his debt to Hell, Anna finds it hard to believe this gorgeous man is serious about her.

As the very world stands on the cusp of Armageddon, Shayne is determined to have this full-figured beauty at any cost. There isn’t any rule he won't break to claim Anna and keep her. Danger follows their every step as passion ignites at every turn. Is it a battle this Endurer can win?

Two taller, grotesque creatures started towards them, their red eyes gleaming unnaturally in the twilight of the evening.

Shayne was ready for them, an ornately carved dagger in each hand. “You girls looking to play?” he asked, his velvety, deep voice cutting through the night. “I know I am. Look, I'm even wearing my play clothes.” He was dressed completely in black.

The two glanced at each other, before charging him as one. Shayne met them in a running leap just seconds before the two screamed in pain. The daggers moved quickly, and immediately one of the demons fell, smoke rising from its body.

He glanced over to the last one standing and shook his head in disgust. His knife had carved deeply into the side of his face, leaving the flesh gaping open. Copious amounts of black fluid poured out, and he was missing an ear.

“Damn,” he said as his lip curled up in a sneer. “You guys just get uglier and uglier, don’t you? It looks like your face caught on fire and someone tried to put it out with a fork.”

He could see three more hellions spread out in the parking lot, but they paused at his words. They knew he was an Endurer, with the full backing of Heaven behind him. The evil inside of them naturally recoiled from the purity contained within his daggers and sword.

It didn't stop the demon in front of him though. “What a great idea,” he growled at Shayne. “I'll have fun trying it out on you in Hell.”

Shayne beckoned with his hand as he said mockingly, “You, I’m going to kill just to put you out of your misery.”

 One last thing before we let you leave us… Do you have a favorite recipe you'd like to share?  I like to cook and am always looking for new recipes to try and share !

 Red Lobster is one of my favorite restaurants, and I LOVE the cheddar biscuits they serve. The recipe below is one of my favorites. They taste best when you eat them fresh from the oven.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits recipe:

Heat your oven to 350 degrees and let it get warm.

2       cups Bisquick(r) (or generic) Baking Mix
2/3     cup Milk (whole milk if possible)
1/2     cup shredded cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
1/4     cup margarine or butter, melted (real butter taste best)
1/4     tsp. garlic powder

Mix baking mix, milk and cheese until soft dough forms; beat vigorously 30
seconds. You want to make sure it's mixed up real good.  Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, I like to use the cooking spray to keep it from sticking.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Mix margarine and garlic powder;
brush over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet.  Serve warm.

(10 to 12 biscuits)

Until next time, happy reading !!
