Author Sylvie Parizeau’s Top 10

Sylvie Parizeau photoI asked author Sylvie Parizeau to list her top 10. Top 10 what you may ask? Read on to find out.

Sylvie

Okay, confession time. I’ll readily admit those are the toughest Top 10 to choose from… Truly. Seriously. Why, you may ask?

Well, here goes (with some of my quirks revealed by the same token). 😉

Top 10 TV shows?

I live on top of a mountain (literally), with no cell phone (*gasp*), no TV (*GASP*), and have been for the past… ten years. I know, I know.

Top 10 novels/authors?

I could list 78 (or a thousand seventy-eight, easily), but choosing 10? Cruel, cruel, cruel boiling down. Torture. Visit Mes Coups de Coeur for a better understanding. http://www.sylvieparizeau.com/mes-coups-de-coeur-indie/ or visit my About Me tab and peek under The Favorites? Toggle. http://www.sylvieparizeau.com/about-sylvie/

Which leaves me with Top 10 Actors (film/TV/stage)… Lesser of three evils as I’ll have to Google most of them in some capacity or other; I know who they are when I see them on screen, but I’m awful with remembering their names. I tend to get lost in the visual… 😉

Let’s see. 10… (can I bargain for a baker’s dozen? Just because :-D)

Pêle-mêle, in no particular order:

Chris Pine

Gerard Butler

Richard Madden

Matt Bomer

Matthew Macfadyen

Toby Stephens

Pierce Brosnan

Sean Connery

And Lucci’s heroic prince is William “Prin” Prinzing, a handsome college student and star soccer player, hired to care for the grounds of the lavish Tower Estate.

I can’t get him out of my mind, and I can’t keep myself out of his bed

Kendall
He wasn’t supposed to notice me. Jace Barlow: the most powerful man in the city. Mysterious, scarred, pure muscle and tattoos.

“You are mine.”

I’ve fallen hard and I’ve never felt safer…

Then I took their place so they could never come back.

I don’t care.

Excerpt

After a brief hurricane of panic from everybody back in the office, I spent the entire afternoon on a computer researching Jace Barlow, determined to make part two of my interview infinitely less embarrassing than part one.  I’d known he was secretive, but I didn’t realize just how little of his life had made it on to the internet.

Mr.  Kinsley sent me some lines of questioning the brain-trust back in the office thought would be important to go through, but not until after trying to replace me at the dinner with a more experienced reporter.  Barlow’s people shot that idea down.

This was my big chance, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to show them what I could do.  Everybody at The Weekly Enquirer, my family, everybody back home who thought I would live and die in Woodville, I’d show them all.

I couldn’t afford the kinds of things that most people who dined at Luc Monette’s wore, but I dressed up as well as I was able to.  Even so, when I arrived early, the woman behind the counter looked down her nose at me until I said I was here to meet Jace Barlow.

After that, I was royalty as far as she was concerned.  She even brought me a complimentary glass of wine while I waited.

It wasn’t easy to keep a level head.  This was as exclusive a restaurant as existed anywhere in the city, the whole country even.  Everywhere I looked, I saw faces I recognized from the news, from the magazines, even from the paper I worked for.

The instant he walked in the room, he caught my eye.  He had so much presence it was like the universe revolved around him, the complete opposite to me.

It didn’t take him long to spot me either, as if I drew his eyes as much as he drew mine.  He headed straight for me and I had this image of him picking me up and carrying me off into the sunset.

There I went again.  What was it about him that made me forget who I was?

“Mr.  Barlow.” I began to stand.

He held out his hand, halting me, before he sat down on the opposite side of the table.  “Please.  Just call me Jace for tonight.”

“Oh.  OK.  You can call me Kendall too.”

“A beautiful name for a beautiful woman.”

I glanced down at my glass of wine for a second, fighting off the shy blush that seemed to blossom anyway whenever he looked at me.  Lines like that didn’t help my predicament.

Eventually, I managed to raise my eyes to his with a goofy smile on my face.  “Thank you.”

“Have you ordered?” he asked.

“No, I was waiting for you.”

“Well, now you’ve got me, what are you going to do with me?”

It was an innocent question, but the way he said it and the look on his face gave me the impression that he was implying something.  I didn’t know if it was just my imagination running wild again, not out of the question when I was around him, or if I was getting hit on by a multi-millionaire.

The Single Game and Amanda Black

Amanda Black PhotoI’m so excited for the release of my new book The Single Game! It’s my first venture into NA territory and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

While it is a continuation of my Apartment series that gives us a glimpse into the future of some of the main characters, it can easily be read as a standalone novel featuring the next generation of the Foster family. So if you haven’t read the first two books but this one sounds interesting to you, go ahead and jump on in! If you really like this one you can always go back and see how it all began.

The idea for this story actually came to me in a dream a while ago. It was just a fleeting image of two random teenagers making out for the first time in a dark closet during a party game that was sort of like spin the bottle. The boy was very nervous and the girl was the one putting him at ease. For some reason that one scene kept replaying in my mind over and over again after I woke up, which I found totally weird because I can never remember my dreams. I always feel like they must have been awesome, but damn if I can ever recall one single detail the next morning. That’s why when I realized that I was building on that scenario in my head the more that I thought about it, I knew I had to write it down or it would drive me crazy. As the story unfolded, I realized that I was drawing on a lot of my own experiences from when I started dating my husband, so this one ended up being very near and dear to my heart.

I really hope you check out this sweet and sexy story and let me know what you think! -Amanda Black

Q&A with Amanda

What elements of your own love life influenced this story?

More than I should probably admit! My husband and I were both very young when we started dating. Not quite as young as Eden and Logan, but there were still plenty of bets that we would never make it.

There is less angst in The Single Game than in your previous books (The Apartment and The Blank Canvas), can you talk about that a little bit more?

That was most definitely on purpose. By the time I finished writing those books I was absolutely drained from all of the emotions I had dredged up, both personal and fictional. Once I started getting the idea for The Single Game I saw that as an opportunity to just sit back and have some fun. It sounds funny to say that I was avoiding melodrama while also writing about teenagers, but I just wanted it to feel genuine, sweet and loving. Life has enough angst. I wanted to give me and my readers a small break.

What motivated you to write a New Adult Erotica?

I was already used to writing erotic romance after the last two books, but I was just really drawn to the story that was growing in my mind of these two teenagers on the verge of graduating high school. It’s such a big milestone in everyone’s life and I wanted to see how this couple would deal with a budding relationship in the middle of all of that.

I was so intrigued by the characters in this story. Logan is a shy, geeky, male virgin whereas Eden is a beautiful, confident, and sexually active HS senior girl. What made you reverse these typically male/female roles? 


I’m always up for a good role reversal! Honestly, some details of their relationship were drawn right from my own and other people I’ve known. There were plenty of girls who got burned by dating a player and they were much happier once they gave the shy guy another look. Plus, how many of us have said at one time, “I’d love to find a guy with no relationship baggage who I could teach exactly what I like.” Eden takes that idea and runs with it, exploring and discovering brand new things that she and Logan both like.

What character in The Single Game is most like you and why?

Definitely Eden. I had the proverbial burning by the ex. Not quite as dramatic as hers was, but that scene came from my ugliest high school memories. I wasn’t back in the saddle until early college but by then I knew what a treasure I had when I found my own shy guy.
