Cocktails & Cock Tales with Eva Lefoy



Deanna: Today we have Eva Lefoy at the cyber bar. Eva writes and reads all kinds of romance, and is a certified Trekkie. She’s also terribly addicted to chocolate, tea, and hiking. One of these days, she’ll figure out the meaning of life, quit her job, and go travel the galaxy. Until then, she’s writing down all her dirty thoughts for the sake of future explorers.

What we are Drinking
A very nice Syrah, or perhaps a Merlot, with bubbly water. Yes, I’m afraid I dilute. If you’ve ever drank with people from the British Isles, and more than once, you soon discovered your lips were quite numb at the end of the evening. That is because they drink like fish. Or support enforcement workers, who just might be able to drink an Englishman under the table! Anyway, I learned to dilute and though it is wrong – so wrong! – I have never unlearned the new habit!
But I have to admit that on Saturday and Sunday mornings, I like it best to drink right from the bottle standing in the kitchen naked after a rousing bout of sex!

Deanna: First things first. Where are you and what are you wearing?

Eva: I’m sitting on the couch wearing an old purple tee-shirt and yoga pants.

Deanna: What’s your poison? Vodka? Gin? Beer?

Eva: Is it wet? I’ll take it! But to be honest, straight vodka is not a favourite. I do like gin with cucumber dry soda, that’s a very nice drink. If you’re serving beer, make it Irish Death! *looks longingly at my empty beer bottle and sighs* I guess I’ll have to go get some wine!

Deanna: (((pours them both a round))) Cheers! Now that we’re comfy, tell me about your new book? (((sips on her cocktail)))

Eva: ((swigs from the bottle)) My latest is Dom of Destruction, book III in the Love Hurts series with MLR Press. In this story, the main character acts impulsively and gets himself into a bad situation. Little does he know that the experience will set changes in motion for the man he wants as his Dom.

Deanna: Where did the idea for this story come from?

Eva: ((hiccups)) Books I and II! In book I, Brian was a jerk. In book II, he got his comeuppance! (Well, Gar hung him from the ceiling and showed him how to submit in style, wink wink). But in book III, I decided to give him a bit of newfound happiness – after I really socked it to him, of course! ((evil author cackle))
Deanna: What was the hardest part of writing this story for you?

Eva: ((puts bottle down with a thunk)) Knowing that writing a bad BDSM might make me seem like I’m an anti-BDSMer when I’m not. I don’t believe BDSM is bad when done safely and consensually, it’s just that I know that are bad people out there. Heck, there are bad people in line at the grocery store. You don’t have to go far to find one! Throw a rock and you might hit one. So, what I mean to say is I’m not anti-BDSM at all. I’m anti-bad-people. ((hic))

Deanna: (((pours them another round))) Boy, these things are tasty!! Now, what’s the easiest thing about writing your book?

Eva: The sex LOL. I like guys and two are even better than one IMO. Especially if they’re nekkid. ((brings out the hidden bottle of 14 Hands Merlot – here, try this one!))

Deanna: Are you a plotter or a panster?

Eva: Total pantster. I mean, I know what’s going to happen and how the story ends, but I let things evolve as they go. Sometimes characters surprise me. They don’t fit well on a plotting matrix for me. If I even try to put them on a character sheet, my muse gives me the finger. Seriously! ((guzzles last of the 14 Hands. Yummy!))

Deanna: How long have you been writing?

Eva: Forever! Well, not quite that long. I used to write bad poetry in high school. Later, I worked as a reporter for three years and then started writing more seriously.

Deanna: Do you ever have writers block? On those occasions that I do, I usually have a cocktail … or three…LOL But that’s just me.

Eva: Hey, I like your style. Can I come over to your house and party? Otherwise, if you come over here we’ll end up on a hike. Hiking cures all funks, and so does watching Pirates of the Caribbean twice in a row. Honestly. Try it. It once cured me of a cold! My English friends swear by whiskey, of course. ((digs around for another bottle)) We usually compare wine prices. He buys by the case and so we do!

Deanna: Niiiiice!!! (((holds up a glass))) But lemme finish the Qs before I forget what I was saying LOL Most of my stories have a theme song, do you do that for your characters?? If so what is it?

Eva: Nope. Never. I listen to the Top 40 radio all fucking day at work. I listen to music as I exercise. By the time I get home I’ve had enough music for the day. It’s time for quiet. Shhhh! ((loses balance, tips over))

Deanna: (((catches her))) Hold on there's only a few more questions. Quick, tell us about a scene that you have written then afterwards, when you read it, you shocked yourself? You know I want a dirty answer (((hint hint)))

Eva: LOL I did write one scene that one of my fellow writing friends really liked. It’s about a sexual gladiator and he has three penises…. He’s up on stage and puts two of them into the only orifice where two will fit and the other in the woman’s much smaller one. Let’s just say it’s a crowd pleaser!

Deanna: Whoot! I like the way you think!
Eva: (((laughs))) The other one I really liked was a long, slow bath in a humid jungle. I hope to see that one come true some day. In the meantime, thanks for having me here today! I send you much wine and chocolate for your pantry and hope you have many thirsty visitors!
Dom of Destruction is book III of Love Hurts, but have you read book one? 
Sex, Ties and Videotape tells the story of Geoffrey and Paul and how they got together. I’d be happy to do a giveaway for this site of an ebook copy of book one to celebrate the new release. 

Deanna: A contest? Awesome!

Eva: Yes, leave a comment about what kind of wine you prefer and I’ll enter you into the contest to win Sex, Ties and Videotape. Here’s an excerpt:
 
The blurb for Sex, Ties and Videotape is:
Geoffrey begged his ex boyfriend, Brian, for some bondage, not public humiliation on YouTube. On Valentine’s Day, he runs into Brian's best friend Paul, who seems intent on righting Brian's wrongs. But trusting Paul means Geoffrey has to come clean with his needs … and his feelings.
Paul sees Geoffrey in the bar and knows this is his chance to convince him he’s nothing like Brian. He starts slow and safe, setting strict ground rules. But when Geoffrey insists on a reenactment of the same dom-play Brian used to hurt him, is a safeword enough to protect their fledgling love?

Super smexy little ‘ol Excerpt:
Geoffrey crossed his arms and didn’t pick it up. The suspicion in his eyes was clearer than a rare Seattle sunny day. “So, what are you saying?”
Good old-fashioned fear of rejection had butterflies flying furiously inside him. Did he tell Geoffrey about his feelings, or would it scare him off? To hell with the insecurity. I’ve waited too long for this moment. “I want you. I’ve always wanted you.”
From Geoffrey’s shocked expression, he hadn’t ever thought it possible. The new-found knowledge  had Paul’s hands tightening into fists and tears stinging his eyes. I swear I’m killing Brian. He did this to him. I can’t fucking believe it.
“Me? Right. Paul, you’ve known me for how long?”
Good. A math problem. He could do that. “Ten years.”
Geoffrey nodded. “Uh-huh, and in all that time, you never once indicated you wanted to bone me. So what’s changed?”
“Hell, Geoff.” Paul ran his hand over his hair. “What was I supposed to do? You’ve been with Brian the last two years.” Saying it out loud pissed him off anew, so he hurried to the next subject. “Before that, you were with Andrew,” he ticked the names off on his fingers, “before that, Carl, and then some Asian guy, I can’t remember his name…”
Geoffrey’s demeanor softened, his shoulders relaxing. “Myung.”
“Yeah, and then before him there was …well, it doesn’t matter who else. But it’s not like you’ve been available.” He took the opportunity to close some of the space between them. Getting the upper hand in this conversation helped his confidence.
“Neither have you.”
He nodded and took another step. “I know. It’s true. I’ve been with a string of guys, too. So no, I’ve never had the opportunity to tell you how much I’ve wanted you.” Now he stood mere inches from the man he desired. He tried desperately not to drool.

“Why would you want me?”
“How would you know what kind of guy I really want?” Paul placed a hand on Geoffrey’s lower back and tugged him closer. “If it’s unclear, I’d be happy to show you.” When Geoff didn’t resist, he cupped the back of his head and pressed their bodies together. His cock rubbed against Geoffrey’s thigh, and Geoff’s against his. The perfect bliss of the moment had him eager to spill right in his pants, but convincing Geoffrey he was serious came first. He angled Geoffrey’s head and planted greedy lips over his.
