Hi, Zoey! Welcome to UTC! I think this is the first time we get to pick your brain so why don’t we start by getting to know you a little better.
OOh I love having my brain picked. Thank you so much Fran and UTC for having me and for wanting to pick my brain. **grins**
Tell us 5 things about yourself that would shock us and most people don’t know.
Oh this is hard – I’m an open book. Well sort of.
Hmm. Okay lets see.
1. I was born in Des Moines, Iowa. Lived there until I was in third grade and then moved to Minnesota where I stayed until I was 21. I then moved to Baltimore and when my son turned One, I moved to Phoenix, AZ.
2. I LOVE watching Investigation Discovery (ID) – the crime channel. I love watching how police solve crimes. It baffles me.
3. At one point, I wanted to be a forensic expert that went to crime scenes and collected evidence and helped solve crimes. (Ever watch CSI: Miami? Yeah I wanted to be Callie). That was until I found out I had to be a cop first… I had NO Desire to be a cop.
4. I love to read Mystery/Suspense stories. In fact, I often choose them over romance books.
5. I am a “bag lady” I buy purses like people buy bread. Though I’ve curbed this addiction a LOT since becoming a full-time author, I have a few boxes of purses and could probably carry a different purse everyday or at the very least, every week. Some of my favorites include Coach (thanks to the discovery of the Coach Outlet and Outlet online.)
For readers who are new to your stories, can you tell them a little about 69 Bottles?
69 Bottles is “America’s Hottest Alternative Rock Band” and they’re going on tour, but there is a last minute change in PR Reps because their previous one is a douche. Addison is that replacement. When she climbs on board, she is immediately the center of the bands attention, but no one more than Talon and Kyle. But because they both want her so bad, neither one can make her choose. Though Talon and Kyle have never been sexual together (outside of an occasional foursome party) they quickly find that Addison isn’t the only one they’re attracted to.
69 Bottles is steamy, sexy, off the charts, read one handed, and fall in love with the band in the process.
What is it specifically about rock stars that intrigues you?
Honestly? I’m not sure it’s so much rock stars but celebrities in general. I’m intrigued because while their lives are so public, but yeah they all have this very interesting private life. At least I like to think so. Rock Stars rock because they are often perceived as being Bad Boys and who doesn’t love a bad boy. BUT I LOVE to watch them crumble and fall to their knees.
Can you tell us a little about REDEEMING KYLE?
Only a little – **grins** I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but Craving Talon leaves you hanging. Probably worse then Claiming Addison did (sorry about that) and it leaves right in the middle of a something pivotal for this trio. Needless to say, I don’t solve the problem immediately. Forcing you to hang on just a little while longer. **evil grin**
But I can tell you that the sex is hot, the story is emotional, and you will (with any luck) be completely satisfied at the end of the story.
This is the conclusion to Addison, Kyle and Talon’s story – So I hope that everyone is uber happy and satisfied at the end. Though it may be the end of their story, we haven’t seen the last of this Trio!
The books are on the spicy side 😉 What’s your favourite sex scene in this particular book and why?
OOOH! Jeez, I have SOOO many of them. I don’t think there is a scene in any of these three books that is not my favorite. But I have to pick a Top Favorite… I am going to have to say it’s in Craving Talon – While they are in Albuquerque and Talon gives Addison something to enhance her sexual experience. Allowing her the chance to do what Talon and Kyle do.
This scene is my favorite because it begins to open the door to taking their relationship to the next level. It opens the door for Kyle and Talon to advance their relationship and it’s just plain HOT!!!
Do you have a favourite song to rock out to? Maybe a guilty pleasure song you’d like to keep under wraps?
I have a lot of Favorite Songs. JEEZ I Love Music!! I have a few that pump me up and a few that bring me down or that make me emotionally happy. Some of my favorites that pump me up are Tantric – especially their self titled album. Sevendust and their Home album. and well a guilty pleasure song? I’m not sure that I have one, though i do own Michael Jackson’s History album – I guess this counts, right?
If you could spend the day with one band, who would you pick and why?
69 Bottles of course. **grins** but then again they’re not real and they live in my head so I guess I get to spend the day with them anytime I want. But if I had to pick one band to spend the day with, I would have to pick Maroon 5 – I would LOVE to pick Adam’s brain for a day.
What’s next for Zoey Derrick?
Oh – there is so much. First I will be writing and publishing Dex’s story (69 Bottles’ Drummer) and then Peacock (a.k.a. Eric – 69 Bottles Bassist) and quite possibly Mouse’s story too. Once the 69 Bottles books are complete and published, I have a long list of story ideas in my head so it will be a matter of picking out which one to do next. But the 69 Bottles books have me tied up until at least June or July of this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Thank you Fran and UTC for having me. I’ve had a lot of fun having my brain picked. This was so much fun! Thank you!
Falling in love was the easy part…
For Talon Carver, the commanding and charismatic lead singer of the rock band 69 Bottles, life has never been better—or worse. His heart’s at a full 11 for Addison Beltrand, his feisty PR rep. But admitting it was a much different tune. The dilemma’s even more complicated when adding his other lover to the mix: Kyle Black, the band’s handsome, sweet and sexy manager.
Why ruin a good thing, right? Things are pretty damn perfect for the trio—in and out of bed. But just when they find their best rhythm with each other, a rocky night in Minneapolis forces all three to reexamine their feelings—and take their relationship to new levels.
But can love be enough?
The band’s soaring popularity, along with the pressures of maintaining an unconventional relationship on a high-profile rock tour, start to take their toll. When Addison starts to fall apart, Talon and Kyle must come to terms with how important she is to them both.
Can Addison find the strength to be their glue once more?
What happens when the world goes on…but yours suddenly stops?
When everything looks like it’s going to fall apart? Is love enough to bring Talon, Kyle, and Addison back to each other’s arms…and with it, the magic that true redemption can bring?
Sexy, naked, bisexual rock stars…and a lot more…
