Interview and Giveaway with Tara Sivec

Tara Sivec
You've probably seen our reviews and have noticed how much we are enjoying reading Tara Sivec's series, CHOCOLATE LOVERS.  Today is the official release day of FUTURES AND FROSTINGS, which was awesome by the way.  We are very excited to have her here with us today!

So Tara, let's get to know you! Tell us five things about yourself that will shock and amaze us.

1. I've never had a one-night stand
2. I married my high school sweet heart
3. If I see a clown I WILL punch it in the face
4. I have 5 tattoos
5. I hate chocolate

Describe your Chocolate Lovers series in five words!

Inappropriate, drunken, foul-mouthed with vibrators.

What can we expect from your second book Future & Frostings?

Inappropriate, drunken, foul-mouthed with vibrators.

Seduction & Snacks is the first book in your Chocolate Lovers series and the first book published and is really popular, how does it feel to be a successfully published author?

I still don't feel like a published author. I'm just a soccer mom from Ohio! All of this still feels like a dream. I figured I'd have to pay people to read anything I wrote. And it would just be family members which would mean I'd have to pay them double since they're greedy bastards.

Claire from your series loves to bake, do you also like to get busy in the kitchen? Any recipes you wold recommend?

I LOVE to bake. I'm a huge baker and my cookie trays at Christmas are legendary. I'm not one to try any crazy recipes, I usually stick to the basics. Chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, etc. Although, if you like white chocolate and cranberries, Google the recipe for Cranberry Hootycreeks. DELICIOUS!

I thought Seduction and Snacks was hilarious, is it hard to write the humour in your books, or does it come naturally?

 It sort of comes naturally for me. The way I write is the way I talk and interact with people so it's not forced or anything. Some days I don't feel funny at all, but then I just text my best friend or call someone in my family and they get me on the funny track again.

What was the last book you loved, and more interestingly the last book you wanted to throw against the wall?

The last book I loved was One Pink Line by Dina Silver. So sweet and wonderfully written. Total opposite of me LOL! I really haven't wanted to throw any against the wall. Well, 50 Shades and I have a love/hate relationship. So maybe that one.

If you only had $20 left in your purse what would you buy?

Books for my Kindle. Or a hooker. But $20 wouldn't buy me a very good hooker.

Do you listen to music when you wrote, is their a favourite playlist on your iPod at the moment?

I'm kind of weird about that. I can't concentrate if I'm listening to music. Music gives me TONS of inspiration for story ideas so if I'm listening to something while I write, I will go completely off track imagining a different story I could write instead of the one I'm supposed to be concentrating on. I like to listen to music when I'm not writing to give me ideas. Right now, 30 Seconds to Mars is on constant repeat on my iPod and has helped give me inspiration for my romantic/suspense series.

Quick fire questions!

 Sex or chocolate? SEX SEX SEX!
Morning person or night owl? Morning person. I'm too old to stay up late with all those youngsters.
Blonde and beautiful or dark and broody? Dark and broody
Ereader or book? Ereader
Sweet love making or rough sweaty shagging? Rough sweaty shagging!


Futures and Frosting
by Tara Sivec
(Chocolate Lovers # 2)

Carter, Claire and Gavin have formed the perfect little family. Their friends are getting married and everyone is growing up, maturing and ready to face the future. Or are they?

From bachelorette party hell, porn addictions, dinner roll baseball and botched wedding proposals to finding out everyone's extended family is chock full of crazy, Carter and Claire begin to question the strength of the ties that bind them. Unfortunately, these ties have nothing to do with fuzzy handcuffs and everything to do with the mounting differences between them.

Will their friends make a mess of things with their inappropriate comments and need to know everything, or will they convince the couple that happily-ever-after sometimes really can start with beer pong?
