In our first Author Talk Extra, we responded to a comment from James who thought all the time and energy spent on romance novels was a crime. James, we just have to thank you for exposing romance novel crime. Today, we’re going to profile one of the books in our video – Phantom Pleasures by Julie Leto.
Book Description: A hotel developer who wants to turn an abandoned island into an exclusive resort unwittingly unleashes a phantom cursed centuries ago-a spectral man who turns her secret desires into reality…
You can buy this book here and visit Julie’s website here and her blog here.
Are you an author whose books have also been committing crimes? Drop us an e-mail, and tell us all about it.

Shortly after the filming of Kresely Cole’s Author Talk interview, Gena Showalter sent me a photo she’d taken of her legs. She claimed they were discolored with deep, dark bruises from the taping of certain scenes. Frankly, I can’t see much of anything in this photo, but gave her my requisite sympathy anyway.
You can view Kresley Cole’s full video here. Watch for extra dance scenes that didn’t make it into the interview – coming soon!
Shortly after publishing the PC and Kristin Cast video, we began receiving comments and e-mails wondering if the interview was a joke and how could I be so rude to PC and Kristin because they are such fabulous writers. PC had to get on her blog and explain that the interview was a spoof (although I do take my job as an interviewer very seriously) and everything calmed down.
Most House of Night readers are teenagers and young adults, and probably haven’t developed the cynicism and irony that those of us who’ve worked in the corporate world enjoy.
Ahhh, youth. I think how wonderful it must be to not yet be jaded by mortgages, customer service training and mandatory fun days at work. Then I remember angst, my dad’s arbitrary curfews and not having my own car and suddenly I’m fine with it.
So young ones, feel free to call me rude while you can and read House of Night – I know you’ll love it!
