Book Tour: The Power Of Three by Jessica E. Subject Interview & Giveaway


The Power of Three

by Jessica E. Subject

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Cursed to live amongst several stone gargoyle statues, Oscar watches a young couple, yearning to participate in their sexual activities. For he has been away from his own lovers for over a year, and longs to touch and be touched again.

When he tumbles off the headboard onto the couple, he is released from the statue but must find a way home. His only thought: a ménage with the man and woman who freed him. But will they try something new to grant him his return passage, or leave him wandering Earth alone?

Now available from Decadent Publishing, Amazon, All Romance Ebooks & more!

EXCERPT:



“I’m from Wigbay,” [Oscar] stated. “I’m not sure how to explain where that is except to say, it’s in another dimension. I was sent here, trapped as a spirit inside your gargoyle statues when I refused to take on another female lover.”
On the day he’d been sucked away from his life partners, Catalis had arrived at his shared home, shouting curses and calling him out for not taking her as his mate. Against their advice, he left Lianna and Lewis on the love platform, anxious to dispose of their unwelcome visitor. But she had other ideas.
When he met her outdoors, she waved her arms in wide circles, uttering an ancient chant. Her malicious words drew the air around them into a swirling mass. Without the combined power of his mates, he was weak to stop her. Catalis used an energy field to bind him then tossed him into the center of the twister. Lianna and Lewis raced out the door and launched themselves onto the sorceress, but they were too late.
“You were in our statues?”
Oscar blinked hard, returning his attention to his hosts.
Bo’s eyes grew wide, his face a mess of contradictory emotions.
“Another lover?” Delayna asked.
“I’ve been able to move amongst the gargoyles you own for the past year. It feels like forever since I’ve seen Lianna and Lewis—my mates, my lovers.” A wave of sorrow threatened to wash over him, but one glimpse of the sparkle in her eyes brought back his immediate need.
“You’ve been spying on us for a year?” Bo turned to his wife. “I don’t believe this shit about being trapped, but there could be hidden cameras in your statues. I swear, Delayna. I’m throwing every single one of them away as soon as we get this whackjob out of the house.”
“Please, Bo.” She whispered something in his ear and he smiled until he caught Oscar looking at him.
Bo stood up, letting the pillow fall to the floor. “Like what you see?”

INTERVIEW:

1) Where did you get the idea for the story?
Thank you so much, Alisia, for having me on your blog today!
THE POWER OF THREE was inspired by an email conversation with a good friend of mine. We were joking around about gargoyles. Then I was left with the question, what if? I wrote the story for fun, but when I heard about the new The Edge erotica line from Decadent, I thought the story would be a good fit. With the help of my critique partners, I cleaned the story up and then submitted it.

2) Your title. Who came up with it? Did you ever change your title?
Sometimes titles come to me right away, and sometimes they don’t. This title did. Three is a meaningful number in witchcraft, and since this story does involve that paranormal aspect, as well as a ménage a trois, I thought the title suited the story perfectly. “The power of three can set you free” kept reciting in my head while I wrote the story, and it did set Oscar free.

3) Since becoming a writer, what’s the most exciting thing to ever happen to you?
I find it all exciting, from getting the contract, seeing your cover for the first time, having your story published, seeing reviews, having readers send you messages about how they enjoyed your story, and receiving royalty cheques. It’s all part of the thrill, but it takes a lot of hard work to get there. Being asked to write a story for a specific line is exciting, too.

4) Which came first, the title or the story? 
In this case, the story came first, but the title came quickly after. Since I was reciting “The power of three” in my head, it just stuck. In some cases, I know the title long before the story is written. Other times, I’m struggling with a title and ask my critique partners for help when I send the story to them.

5) What book are you currently reading or what was the last book you read?
The last story I read was The Milkman Cometh by Kate Richards, and now I’m reading Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

6) At a book signing, do you just sign your name or do you write a note? How do you come up with stuff to say?
I’ve never done an actual print book signing, as I don’t have any print books out yet. Soon though. J I do send out signed swag though, with either a thank you to the reader, my tagline, or a special note for those I know a little better.
I can also Kindlegraph books here: http://www.kindlegraph.com/authors/jsubject
