Interview And Giveaway With Lisandra Lantigua

I would like to say Hi and Welcome to United By Books Lisandra, and thanks for taking the time to join us today. I am honored to have you on my blog. Your all in for a treat! You can find my review for Her Slave (Love It Rough) here to check out ~  

Review For Her Slave (Love It Rough)

U.B.B~ Tell us a little about yourself? 

Lisandra~ Well, Im 25, a mother, wife and i was born and raised in Cuba :)

U.B.B Have you always wanted to be an author? 

Lisandra~ Umm, not necessarily. My thing was always art, but when I was around 19 I picked up "Lovers and Players" by Jackie Collins and well, since then I've been a book-whore! It was only a matter of time till i actually put my own story on paper.  

U.B.B~ What are your writing habits?

Lisandra~  I try so very hard to have a writing habit, but I've come to realize that my characters only speak to me at night time. Like right before I close my eyes (already laying on my pillow), it's a bit annoying but if i don't write it down they wont let me sleep.

U.B.B~ Tell the readers about your steamy short story Her Slave?  

Lisandra~ Her Slave is about a young couple (Nelly & Ryan) who have been together for almost a year but are - i guess you can say stuck- on "vanilla" sex (which there's nothing wrong with btw) and when Ryan (her boyfriend) asks her what's her fantasy she decides to take a chance and answer honestly.
U.B.B~ Did some of your fantasies go into the writing of Her Slave?
Linsandra~ Umm, *blushing* I'd be lying if i said no.

U.B.B~Where did you get the idea for this particular book?

Lisandra~ I just sat down one day and started to write. I didn't dream of glittering men or anything, i just had an idea, maybe a paragraph and it developed into a story.

U.B.B~ Was there any particular author or book that made you want to be a writer?

Lisandra~ Yes, so many actually. But there's this one author in particular (that I contacted after reading one of her incredibly awesome stories) that inspired me tremendously; Jasmine Haynes. She has a way with words that can put you exactly where she wants you to be. But there are many others who inspire me as well: J.R. Ward, Jaci Burton, Shayla Black, Maya Banks, Gena Showalter, Zane, just to name a few. 

U.B.B~ What made you think to write Erotica?

Lisandra~ I write Erotica because its a genre that lets you tell all the details, even the juice ones :)  

U.B.B~ I know Part 2 Her Master...Love the title just so you know...Care to share a bit about whats in store for us?

Lisandra~ Her Master is Manny and Lucy's present (couple of weeks after Nelly & Ryan's story), with flashes to how they met. They are a serious S/M couple so this book is pretty steamy and has a twist that will lead you to the third of the series, and will also bring closure to Nelly and Ryan. 

U.B.B ~ What do you have planned after Her Master?

Lisandra~  The next book in the Love it Rough (LIR) Series is titled: Her Submission (which I am currently writing)

Lisandra would like to giveaway a Ebook copy of Her Slave to one lucky commenter. The giveaway will last through till Saturday the 23rd. On Sunday a winner will be announced. Leave a comment or a question on this post for Lisandra and she will respond. Also please take the time to like her author page.

I love books not because they are sexy and when you read them they put you in your own world. I have MS and it is so good to read a book with lively characters, reading the action are taking place. Reading is beyond Sexy,it is also for me a helper for my mind and give me good ideas for when my hubby and I want some us time. Love when a book comes to life. I love erotica books.

Great interview. These books look and sound like a great read.

Is this giveaway international?

Theresa said...

I like how you have such a good story line besides the "sexy" scenes. To me, books give me a chance to unwind and go to a place that I can live thru the characters in the book. I really liked your interview and am excited to try your books out.
Thank you for the giveaway.
