~Meet Wicked Leanore~

Hello folks! Please put your hands together and welcome Wicked Leanore dubbed by me, Wicked One.  

CK: Please, tell us how and when you launched your fabulous writing career.

In 2007, my kids retired me from working. They told me to write and pursue my dream. I had worked on a novel on and off for ten years. I set out to learn and become educated in all aspects of writing. This novel is now
Soul Sacrifice The Soul Trilogy the second book was released September 25th By Silver Publishing.
Soul Betrayal

CK:  Where did you submit your first story?

Well, that’s a “Bad story” of a publisher that will remain unnamed. I learned the hard way through this experience, to always check out the publisher with sources such as Predators and Editors. This pub was a definite predator.

CK:  Do you write full time? If not, how do you fit writing into your busy schedule? 

Yes, all the time at an obsessive pace. I wrote a novel full length at 50-k edited it and submitted it to my publisher (Knight Romance) in 12 days time! It was so pretty and polished that it will be out in e-book and print by the end of October. I wrote it September 1st 2010!

CK:  Please, tell us, what are the pros and cons of being a published author?

I am sorry, but I am one of those positive saps. I only see the chance to be read. Yes, there are bad reviews, bad publishers and retailers; along with submitting your life away to a hundred different Publishers in a hundred different ways. But I don’t care about all of that. I just care about being a GOOD writer. 

CK:  Would you do us the honor of providing a sneak peek of your most recent project, if possible?

Oooh yes, Nowhere, Arizona: The Sunset Warrior, Book One (my 12 day novel) By Knight Romance Publishing written especially for their “Nocturnal Seduction Line”

Madeline is a driven Executive from Los Angeles and she finds herself stranded in Nowhere, Arizona. She meets Devon and he is so different from any man she’s ever met. He sets out to seduce her in many different ways, to get her to be true to her wild self and to let go of that cold, power hungry world that she has always lived in.
He stood tall and his tan skin looked dark in the low light of the cave, his abdominal muscles rippled under the glow of the torches.
She struggled and her body seemed to writhe with this wild need.
“Woman?” he called.
She panted and heaved while her angry eyes glared at him.
He slyly motioned his head to the wall as he crossed his arms over his bare chest.
She swallowed through the gag. No, don’t look Maddy, don’t! Her head turned of its own volition and she stared.
The next drawing had the man’s face between the woman’s legs. The woman’s expression was of pure ecstasy.
She felt a shudder and she grew wet.
He stood back and watched her. His face remained impassive.
She looked at him and shook her head. Oh, god, oh god! She felt a pulsing run through her.
He stepped closer.
She was breathing heavily. I want him to! I need to feel his...No! He is trying to...Her thoughts whirled around as she felt his hot breath on her skin. Her body grew rigid.
“Do you want it?” He whispered low.
Her body quivered with the words and she shook her head.
He smiled at the lie, “I shall give you a small taste.” He lifted his head with the words. “Do you...?”
Her eyes rounded. Taste salty and sweet? Her thoughts finished the sentence.
There was flicker of something that passed through his eyes.
“Dev!” She tried to scream through the gag. It came out as a muffled scream.
He applied his tongue onto her tender skin.
Her whole body shivered.
His hands drew up and he opened her folds with his fingers. He placed his warm lips over her exposed clit.
“Mmmm...” She jumped as she felt it throb and harden.
 He slid his tongue up and then back down over it with a rapid motion and then he slowed his tonguing as he tilted her hips up. He pulled her open wider and stuck his rigid hot tongue into her, he literally thrusted her with it...... 

CK:  Please share one of your earlier novels with us.

All of my novels I have worked on for the past three years, getting them edited and publisher worthy. Submitting them to many publishers took up most of that time. Today: Beasts Of Forever was released by Wild Horse Press, it is one of a three- book series. The unique premise will make these tales popular in the Erotic Paranormal Genre with sexy Humanesque gargoyles that are insatiable, when it comes to getting satisfied. I call them “My Erotic Epiphany.”
She did not feel fear, instead she felt something else. She spun out of his arms and stepped back.
He drew closer, placing his hands onto her arms.
She felt her own sharp nails digging into her palms. Something was happening to her body she felt a violence taking over. 
"Go ahead and fight me, but it is the only way." He pulled her close.
She felt the hardness of him stabbing at her thighs and she grew wet.
"Fight you?" She whispered. "I have wanted---"
He covered her mouth with his and her words melted. He kissed her for a long moment with a fierce possession. He pulled away and turned her around, moving her up against the dresser.
Their strange rippling reflections were there in the mirror.
She was panting now and she could not breathe. She felt on fire as though she were burning.
His eyes were glowing as he stared at her face. He picked her up by her hips and bent her over, the small mirror above the dresser casting his forceful movements. He eased two fingers into her.
 She gasped.
He watched her face in the mirror while he thrust them in and out. "It is better that you see all the ways you will turn for me..." His deep voice purred at her.
She spread her legs wider in order to get more.
He thrust his fingers deeper in side of her. "You will be filled all the way up with me."
Her eyes dilated again and she thrust herself down onto his fingers with abandon.
"I knew you would be willing." He slid two more fingers in.
"Yes, please more!" She panted and moved her hips around.
He removed his fingers. 
She gasped loudly, feeling a forlorn emptiness. I am going insane. I act as though I will die if he does not fuck me. What is happening to me? 
He continued to look at her face in the mirror as he lifted her hips. Me, that’s what has happened.
She heard his words echo in her mind while she looked into his eyes. 
"There will be no stopping this, Constance," he spoke aloud.
 A wild, crazy need surged through her and she thrashed her body around. "I need…" Her words came in gasps, "Please Jack!" Her juices flowed down her legs.
His eyes narrowed while reaching down and he swiped a finger through it. "You have proved that you need it," he spoke low into her ear. 
The vibrating sound of his voice seemed to cause a spasm in her body.
He lowered her down onto him and plunged deep.

CK:  Oh dear, I need a little ice water because that was so hot Wicked One. Ahem--Um, now where we? Where do you see yourself two years from now? 

Well, my dream-sights are closer than that. I feel that by the middle of 2011, I will be read on a wide scale. I channeled these stories as though I was merely a witness and I write down what I see. Others will see how unique and intriguing these tales are. I do write depth to my characters too, it’s not all just hot sex, you know? The stories and suspense escalate and while emotions are high? That’s when we have the great sex! (Wicked-giggle)

CK:  What are your hobbies? 

My huge family, yes I call them my hobby, though they do come first. Because there’s writing and then there’s: A hubby of 29 years, a fulltime job of chasing a three year old, endless pets that include 8 cats, 3 dogs, fish and a mountain lizard. Six 20 somethings’ live here with my writer-Hubby and I, and their drama would keep anyone occupied. With all the huge meals and clean-up? I also have a jungle garden that I raised from my own two green thumbs.

CK:  How do you unwind?  

I get away by getting into the stories. It’s like I get to read and write them at the same time and I feel so lucky to be able to do that! I know it’s dumb, but like I said; OBSESSED!

CK:  No dear, that isn't dumb. That is how our stories come to us. Sometimes you get a little choked up, especially with an emotional scene, and sometimes you just burst out laughing over a funny scene, and well, there are those hot scenes that make you squirm in your seat. LOL Now, do you mold your characters strictly from imagination or from those you cross paths with in everyday life? 

I have a highly talented Muse and she is oh, so, wicked. I even named her ‘Wicked Leanore’ in fact. There are no limits to what she may show me and readers are gonna feel like I do about these Romantica Tales that she spins. They are gonna eat it up, because it makes you feel so... out of yourself and away from the real world and you end up...Satisfied?

CK:  What methods of research do you utilize? 

I do enough so that I know what I am speaking about. I wanted so very much to use the Hualapai Indian language in the Nowhere Series. But alas, there was almost none on record. So, I avoided using it. The research for my gargoyle beasts took me on a long journey and I was wowed by their long vibrant history, it reinforced my feeling of reality with those sexy beasts. For the Soul books? I learned Cajun and Creole “Quoi faire!” And say it... For True! 

CK:  Where can you be found on the internet? 

Several places: One is My Facebook Tribute Page and you just cannot miss SOUL CIRCLE my huge colorful website. Its a true Phenom Library of 150 books where I promote 85 authors!
Soul Redemption

 CK: Awesome, you are a true gem for what you do, and I would like to say, thank you. Authors promoting authors is where it's at. What advice can you pass on to new writers? 

Forget YOUR Ego, period and add an exclamation point to that. Perfect your grammar, punctuation and learn the rules for dialogue! Watch for redundancy and repeated phrases, find ways to shorten it when it’s too long. Don’t have an ego about most of your critic’s remarks. Instead, look at it again and see if they have a point. Learn to use you word processor properly and remember that there is no such thing as the “Perfect” book. Meaning: it can never be good enough. So go over it and over it. Or, hire an experienced editor. This will make or break your career.

CK:  Awesome advice, my dear! Leanore Elliott thank you so much for sharing. It was awesome having you here today!
