Just Teasing…With Anita Kidesu

amydeason

Hi everyone. Today on Tursday Teasers, I have an incredible author. Anita Kidesu and her super steamy book, South Seas Seduction. Boy, if the title is any indication of what is waiting for us inside those pages, I can’t wait to read it. But for now, here’s a tiny taste of what Anita has in store. Enjoy!!

**The Hook:
Three men. One Woman. One Deserted Island. What’s a woman to do?

**Something fun and unique about Anita that not many people know: “Once when I was on a date, I came up with a new idea for an erotic romance. I had nothing to write it down on, so, in my excitement, I grabbed my date’s hand and wrote it on his palm. Unfortunately it was the first date and what I wrote was rather erotic. He wasn’t impressed and never called me again. Someday I’ll use this in a…

How did you choose the genre you write? When I started writing short stories and novels, I found it difficult to classify my work. I knew I wasn’t writing traditional science fiction, thrillers, or romance. Instead, my work was a blend of several genres that later morphed into a form of contemporary women’s fiction. But even that classification didn’t fully satisfy me. It wasn’t until late 2012 that I found a more appropriate…

The First Week of Being Published

perf5.000x8.000.inddIt’s been a little over a week since South Seas Seduction was released. It’s been quite a week. Exciting, nerve racking, exciting. The release date was a bit of a let-down. I built up this anticipation, but when Friday came, I was at work. Since I use a pen name, no one knew how special this day was. Most of my friends were busy with family, so I spent the night drinking wine, eating chocolate, watching tv, and checking Amazon for my ranking.

I’ve been interviewed on several blogs and have a few more coming up. The first was the interview with Tina Susedik. Then I was on 69 Shades of Smut and Erin Brevan’s blogs. On March 25th, I’ll be on Rebecca Grace’s blog and on March 28th Melissa Snark’s, The Snarkology. I’ve provided links below.

What I’ve learned in the past week: Promotion is hard work. Trying to set up blog interviews. Getting people to read and review South Seas Seduction. Setting up return interviews and reviews. Finding the time to read and write for the reviews and blogs. My head has been spinning all week. In between that, getting edits done and the next book sent off to my editor – which I accomplished on Friday. Yay!!! ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I also learned that if readers to directly to The Wild Rose Press to purchase books, authors receive higher royalties, that I need to set up an author page on Amazon, getting people to post reviews is difficult, and most of all – I love being published.

So this week, besides promoting South Seas Seduction, I will start work on the next book, or maybe the short story I’ve had approved to write for a Valentine’s Anthology The Wild Rose Press will publish next year.

Worldwide Release of “South Seas Seduction” – March 13th

perf5.000x8.000.inddExcitement reigns in my house. Nearly one year to the day that I signed my contract with The Wild Rose Press for “South Seas Seduction,” the book is finally ready. It will release March 13th, with pre-order ready now.

It has been quite a trip. Signing contracts on-line was quite an experience – something I’d never done before. Then came the edits and edits and more edits. I learned about editing a galley, which is different from editing a manuscript. I found out I didn’t use Track Changes properly in Word which slowed down my editor, Trish. By-the-way, I loved working with her. Since everything is done via email, I hope someday to meet her face-to-face.

The day I received the mock up of my cover, I wanted to share it with everyone, but I had to wait. Every time I reached for the phone to call someone, I had to bite my fingers. I did call and share it with my good friend, Tina Susedik. Diana Carlile designed this fun cover.

When I met Diana at a conference two years ago and pitched South Seas Seduction, I had no idea she would become such an important part of my career. As we sat at the bar with her talking and laughing, I didn’t know she even designed covers. How lucky am I?

At this point, I need to thank Tina and Linda for helping me through this process. Tina for her guidance and Linda for her editing skills. She jokingly calls herself the “Grammar Nazi” and “Comma Bitch,” but I treasure her knowledge.

Blurb: Sheltered all her life as the daughter of an ambassador, Emma Labonte boards a small plane on a trip from Australia. One hijacking and a plane crash later, she finds herself on a deserted island and stranded with three different yet equally sexy men. With no hope for rescue, the four begin to carve a semblance of a life in their tropical setting. Closeness breeds curiosity, and naive Emma begins to wonder what it would be like to be loved by these three men. The adventurer Jack, Toby the intelligent doctor, and shy English professor Steve–each carve a special place in her heart. When her three men launch seduction in the South Seas, how can she resist?

So, without further ado, here is the link for the pre-buy. The book will also be available on the 13th on The Wild Rose Press website. If you don’t know, when you purchase a book from a publisher’s website, authors receive a higher royalty.
