AAD Featured Author Interview: Candace Blevins
Welcome Authors After Dark 2014 featured author Candace Blevins!
Is this your first year attending AAD?
Yes, and I’m thrilled! I can’t wait to meet readers and other authors.
What made you want to come to AAD?
I’ve heard such great things about how a smaller event allows authors to really connect with readers, and I’m excited to have the opportunity.
Do you have a book coming out before AAD you want the attendees to know about?
The sequel to Safeword: Matte, titled Safeword: Matte - In Training, will be out June 20th, and the next book, No Safeword: Matte - The Honeymoon, is currently scheduled to release the Friday of AAD, but I’m talking to my publisher about possibly releasing it a week earlier.
If you were to suggest one of your books to the AAD attendees, which book would it be?
Depends on their kinks. Safeword: Quinacridone deals with objectification, while the two Davenport books delve into TPE, and Safeword: Rainbow strives to find a balance between power exchange and everyday life. Safeword: Matte is my least extreme, but is still a lot more intense than the average BDSM books.
If an adoring fan wanted to buy you a drink at the bar, what’s your poison?
Jack and Coke. I’m part Irish, and I’m a Tennessee girl. :)
We’re all excited about the book signing. What books will you have on hand to sign and sell?
I’ll have all of them, but will have the most of Safeword: Matte, since the three sequels are releasing this summer and fall. I hope to have hard copies of the sequels, but the timing will be tricky.
Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon
Safeword: Matte – In Training (June 20)
No Safeword: Matte - The Honeymoon (August 8)
And I should have an excerpt available for:
No Safeword: Matte - Happily Ever After (Fall 2014)
