AAD Featured Author Interview: Carly Phillips

Welcome Authors After Dark 2014 featured author Carly Phillips!

Is this your first year attending AAD?
Yes and I am so excited! And beyond overwhelmed and nervous.

What made you want to come to AAD?
I’ve heard so many great things about the conference itself and the readers who attend, I wanted to go and experience it for myself. That and since becoming an all Indie author, meeting with readers is another goal of mine. I appreciate that they spend their hard earned money on my books and this is a way to give back.

So where will attendees be able to find you at AAD? Do you hang out in the bar? The lobby? Or are you the one who throws parties in their room?
Hiding in a corner! OK seriously … when I’m not babbling somewhere nervous and overwhelmed, I’ll be at the Erotic Authors Panel, and I’m hosting an event with Julie Kenner, Erika Wilde, Rebecca Zanetti and Stacey Kennedy! Beyond that … just come find me!

Do you have a book coming out before AAD you want the attendees to know about?
Yes! I have DARE TO LOVE, the story of Ian Dare and his single minded pursuit of the woman he can’t get out of his head, and DARE TO DESIRE out now, a hot hot hot story about Alex Dare, the professional football player who finds out there’s more to life than the game and has to pull out all the stops to go after the woman he loves (and hurt before). This Dare to Love series is as close to erotic romance as I’ve ever written and I love writing it. Then on July 15, DARE TO SURRENDER, an Invitation to Eden release AND a Dare to Love series book comes out. The cool thing is this book stands alone in both series it’s part of - so no worries about reading what came before or after. Same for all my books.

If you were to suggest one of your books to the AAD attendees, which book would it be?
DARE TO LOVE or DARE TO DESIRE - both out now, both can introduce you to my newest series and give you a taste of where Carly Phillips’ writing is headed now. It’s a stretch from my small town SERENDIPITY series for Berkley which were hot but not smoking/burning/sizzling as these are. I’m hoping new readers will give these new ones a chance!

If an adoring fan wanted to buy you a drink at the bar, what’s your poison?
Club soda.  DONT’ JUDGE ME, LOLOL! I’m not a big drinker. Migraines if I do. But I’m all for bar hanging and having fun.

SWAG. We all love SWAG! What cool stuff are you bringing?
Well, Erika Wilde and I are donating the conference bags. I also plan to bring luggage tags, DARE TO LOVE / DESIRE/SURRENDER to pins … bookmarks, pens, lots of things!

We’re all excited about the book signing. What books will you have on hand to sign and sell?
I’m still deciding but I will definitely have DARE TO LOVE and DARE TO DESIRE. I’m not sure about DARE TO SURRENDER. Probably!
