BJ Friday Interview With Author Ava Riley

Ava Riley is a girl who is not afraid to let it all hang out! I think she may even tweet more about cock than I do. Okay, maybe that's stretching the truth a bit, but I just adore her and am so excited to have her on the blog for BJ Friday.

She just released her first erotic novella, A LIFETIME TO FIND LOVE.

Tessa has no desire to spend another Friday night alone. Inviting her brother’s best friend, Cade, to hang out with her at a local club was nothing more than a night out with a friend. At least that’s what she thought. When unexpected advances are made, they are both forced to evaluate their life-long friendship and newly revealed feelings for each other. Can Tessa accept that someone as sexy and successful as Cade could want her for more than sex? Will their friendship continue on as it was or will these two find a love that lasts a lifetime?

Alright, enough with the introductions, it's time to get down and dirty.

Alpha Pussy: How did you get started writing erotica?

Ava: I actually never thought about it until I started reading paranormal about 2 years ago. I just thought “wow, my mind is dirty enough to write like that.”

Alpha Pussy: I certainly won't argue with that. What authors would you say are your biggest inspiration and influences?

Ava: There are so many out there, but some of my favorites are Lara Adrian, Lyndsay Sands, Kresley Cole, and Jeaniene Frost.

Alpha Pussy: I love Jeaniene Frost. In fact, I just re-read the entire Night Huntress series. Book 2, chapter 32...shit, I just shorted out my keyboard...Do you ever get stuck while working on a particularly graphic scene? How do you get unstuck?

Ava: I wouldn’t say stuck, but I do have to take my time and make sure that everything is in order. I get caught up in the “moment” and a thousand things are running through my mind of what I want in the scene.

Alpha Pussy: A thousand dirty things? Sounds like a movie I'd love to watch...or star in. What’s your favorite body part to describe?

Ava: Oh this is easy, I would have to say the chest and ass (oh sorry that’s two body parts lol).

Alpha Pussy: Get with the program you cheater! Then again, extra ass is ALWAYS welcome on this blog. What’s your favorite synonym for cock?

Ava: Shaft (but I like cock too)

Alpha Pussy: I noticed Tess never complains when getting the shaft. *snickers* What about for pussy?

Ava: Core (hot wet core)

Alpha Pussy: So many responses flooded through my mind, I think my eardrums just popped. I love a woman who keeps it tastefully nasty. Tessa and Cade went on several romantic and perfect dates. What's your perfect date?

Ava: My perfect date would be a drive to the mountains and a picnic by a cool stream.

Alpha Pussy: And by picnic, I'm just going to assume you mean a multitude of feasting upon one another. That's either very sexy or very George Romero. A LIFETIME TO FIND LOVE is your debut. What's been the most exciting thing about being published?

Ava: The most exciting thing is hearing people say they love the book.

Alpha Pussy: Um, you're supposed to say being featured on BJ Friday with the Alpha Pussy. Sheesh, woman, where's your head? Oh, yeah, still lingering on the cock question. What's the most nerve-wracking thing about being published?

Ava: That people won’t like the book and seeing my first bad review.

Alpha Pussy: You should buy yourself a pair of sexy panties for every unfavorable review. That way you can train yourself to get excited about them. Has writing about sex improved your own sex life?

Ava: Well, my sex life is pretty damn good, so I would say that because of that, my sex scenes in my books has improved.

Alpha Pussy: I think that's the best answer to that question I've ever seen. How many of your scenes have you practiced in order to write them?

Ava: Only a few (so far!). My husband is a great research partner though.

Alpha Pussy: Lucky, lucky man. Tessa continually gets interrupted while trying to have a quiet morning with her favorite toy. Do you have a favorite toy?

Ava: Oh dear God yes, my JackRabbit! Best toy hubby ever bought me.

Alpha Pussy: What a good boy he is! Sounds like he deserves a BJ Friday reward. My first BJ was in high school out in the field behind the portable office…at a church. Tell me about your first BJ.

Ava: It wasn’t the best experience…I had no idea what I was doing and honestly I thought I would never do it again. He just shoved it in my mouth and I thought “what the hell am I supposed to do now.” But then I met hubby and we practice all the time and I LOVE it!

Alpha Pussy: It definitely improves the experience to have at least one person who knows what he/she is doing. What's next on your agenda? Lots more writing More writing or more sex?

Ava: My follow up to A Lifetime to Find Love, Sacred Surrender, comes out in July. This is Rowan’s (Tess’s brother) story. And there is always room for more sex (in books and life).

Alpha Pussy: OOH!!! I was hoping for a happy ending for Rowan. And of course there's always more room for sex...especially when you destroy a few pieces of furniture and a wall or two...Wrap it all up by giving your best tip for #BJFriday.

Ava: My first tip is to watch gay porn, that’s how I learned how to give a great BJ. Seriously, I’m not lying. Secondly, if you are uncertain as to whether you want it in your mouth or not, use flavored lube, makes it better for both and thirdly, take your time and enjoy the BJ. The more you enjoy it, the more he enjoys it.

Ava, thank you for the interview! Now, before I run off to watch gay porn (which I honestly do love), let's talk GIVEAWAY!!!

BJ Friday Interview with Tracey O'Hara

Tracey O'Hara is a true master of writing jump-off-the-page-into-my-bed-please heroes. Her novels are ones I finished in a page-turning frenzy, all while sending her DM's demanding to know when the next one is coming out. It's really a wonder she hasn't blocked me or at least taken out a restraining order. Of course, she did me one better by sending me a care package and triggering my addiction to white chocolate Tim Tams.

Is it any surprise I love that bitch?


The tension between the Aeternus, an ancient vampiric people, and humanity has been mounting for over a century. But when rogue vampires begin to drain humans in order to achieve an illegal blood-high, all bets are off.

After the death of her parents, Antoinette Petrescu devoted her life to becoming one of the top Venators, the elite hunters who destroy the rogue Necrodreniacs. Her kill count is legendary and her skills superb.

But now the serial killer who killed her parents has returned. And to stop him Antoinette must join forces not only with the Aeternus, but also their most legendary killer. One that is both dangerously attractive, and involved in buried secrets of her past. More dangerous still, a dark attraction grows between them--one that could doom both races.

Alpha Pussy: I love your book covers!!! You won a Ruby Award for your debut novel Night’s Cold Kiss. What was that experience like?

Tracey: One word – surreal. I never expected to final, let alone win. When they called my name, I could swear I’d misheard. It still doesn’t seem real, I have to touch the trophy every now and then to make sure I wasn’t just dreaming.

Alpha Pussy: Would it help if I pinched you every now and then as well? The world you write about has such a rich history. Did it take you hours of research or did you just wing it as you went along?

Tracey: The history just came along as the world revealed itself to me. The stuff I had to research was the American settings since I had never left my own country at that time.

Alpha Pussy: Next time you need that kind of research let me know. I will work for Tim Tams. Or ARCs. Who’s your favorite boy: Christian or Raven?

Tracey: Don’t ask me to choose – that isn’t fair. I guess Christian is my first, but Raven is a pretty hot number.

Alpha Pussy: Of course it's fair! I would have to go with Raven just for the hat alone. And the hair...and the eyes...oh hell, I'll take all of him. Tell me about the first sex scene you ever wrote. What is your hottest one so far and why?

Tracey: Okay the first sex scene I ever wrote is in Night’s Cold Kiss where Christian gets in on with a human donor. He feeds and has some pretty hot nooky on railing of the hotel penthouse suite balcony. But the hottest sex scenes are the erotica ones that I write under a different name.


After thousands of years of secret conflict, humans and parahumans have reached an uneasy truce. But unspeakable evil now threatens to shatter the tenuous peace.

Teenaged shapeshifters are being slaughtered by a twisted, sadistic serial killer who rips their still-beating hearts from their paralyzed bodies. A task force must be formed to halt the madness—a union of avengers including the vampiric Aeternus, Christian Laroque and Antoinette Petrescu, as well as Kitt Jordan and Raven Matokwe, members of enemy Animalian tribes…and forbidden lovers.

A centuries-old blood feud has divided their peoples—pitting wolf against snow leopard in a battle to the death—and if their passion is discovered it will doom them both. But past hostilities must be put aside in light of the scourge that is now upon them. For the killer they seek is but the first sign of a blossoming terror rising up from their long-buried pasts: the all-consuming nightmare of The Dark Brethren.

Alpha Pussy: As a fan of all your stories, I'll have to agree with you on that one. Is there a different process writing sex between two humans and writing sex between either a human and a para-human, or two para-humans?

Tracey: Not really. I have never written any animal sex so they all take place in human form, although a vampire will probably be just as fixated on feeding as fucking.

Alpha Pussy: *blinks* Animal sex? Now I feel all sleazy for asking that. Although...Raven... What’s your favorite synonym for cock?

Tracey: What is wrong with cock? It’s such a perfect word. Though I do say erection sometime.

Alpha Pussy: A woman after my own heart. I love the word cock. Has writing about sex improved your own sex life?

Tracey: Who has time for sex when you work 8 hours a day and your husband works nights.

Alpha Pussy: Oh honey. *passes you a Tim Tam* One of my recent brilliant ideas is Jolly Rancher cockrings. Which flavor would you choose?

Tracey: Okay – I have never heard of Jolly Rancher and had to look it up. I found this,Best-Jolly-Rancher-Flavors and decided I would pick cinnamon fire.

Alpha Pussy: Mmm...good choice. I'd go with that or watermelon. If you were to get snowed in with any one man of your choice, who would it be and why? Or will you be greedy and choose more than one?

Tracey: No – there is only one man for me, there has only ever been one man for me. And I married him.

Alpha Pussy: Smart man. Can I please have Raven for a weekend?

Tracey: You’ll have to fight Kitt for him. I mean, he is a pretty hot ticket. Plus I think he only has eyes for her, he is a one woman wolf :)

Alpha Pussy: I'm the Alpha Pussy, I can take her. The ending of Death’s Sweet Embrace twisted in a way I didn’t see coming. Bravo! First time I’ve been surprised by a story in a long while. How far in advance did you plot it out?

Tracey: I always knew how it would end. It was just getting there that was the journey.

Alpha Pussy: A journey which you're taking again with the third book in the series. Which I'm sure you're in desperate need for a beta reader. *bats eyelashes* Wrap it all up by giving your best tip for #BJFriday.

Tracey: Swallow.

Thank you, Tracey, for the Tim Tams and the interview! You never disappoint!
