When I’m not writing…. with Jill Myles

Today I’m happy to have Jill Myles, author of Succubus Dairies series, with me! Her books are having a huge success and it’s a pleasure to discover more about her. Make sure to until until the end for more info about her books, including her latest release, My Fair Succubi (Dec 28th, 2010)

 

 

There’s a time that I’m not writing? Just kidding! There’s actually a lot of time when I’m not writing, but it just doesn’t feel that way. I work a day job so when I get home, it feels like there’s never enough time in the day. Nevertheless, I do have a few things I happen to enjoy.

Horror movies – It’s true, a lot of them involve a stupid blonde going into the basement without a flashlight only to meet a terrible death. But a lot of horror movies are actually really creepy and genuinely fascinating. I love survival horror and creature horror especially, and my heart holds a special place for zombie movies. I’ve seen just about everything that’s come out in the past twenty years that contains the word ‘zombie’. Some good, some not so good. Needless to say, if it has monsters or ghosts (or both!) I’ll be watching it.

I’m also a big fan of a few TV shows. Supernatural is one of my favorites (see the above mentions of monster movies) and it has that perfect mix of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki and the occasional
Misha Collins. I am also a HUGE fan of Survivor, even though my husband laughs at the thought. Shameful confession: I once bought a buff and wore it every week when the show came on. This was prior to being married to my husband, or I think our relationship might not have survived my nerdiness.

Of course, this is all stuff I do when I’m not reading or playing my other True Love, VIDEO GAMES. It’s
true. I’m a gamer, and I wave my dork flag proudly. We have almost every kind of platform, and I’m especially fond of games that allow you to be a girl – because I hate it when I have to be a guy. Really now, what decade is this?? Anyhow, my favorite game of all time is Left 4 Dead, followed closely by Left 4 Dead 2 and Dragon Age. And Tetris. And Knights of the Old Republic 2. And…well, you get the idea. My favorite games are the ones where I can be a girl and there’s a hot guy to lust after. This makes Dragon Age one of my favorites, because you can romance the virginal knight or the seductive man-whore elf. This also makes Left 4 Dead one of my favorites, because in addition to the fact that you get to run around after the zombie apocalypse and shoot things, you can be Zoey, who is just about the greatest character ever. Zoey is a college student who was flunking because she watched too many horror movies…she cusses, she farts, she gives the guys on the team a hard time. She’s a girl after my own heart. Anyhow, I think she has a secret thing for Francis, the biker guy. It’s not ever followed up on in the story, but those of us that have played often enough know that Zoey laughs at Francis’s jokes a little TOO hard to be subtle. We know what you’re thinking, Zoey. We know.

I wish I had something more exciting as a hobby like…uh, pottery! Or something like that. But alas, I’m just a geeky girl who likes her nerdy pop culture and gaming a bit too much for her own good.

Thank you so much Jill for sharing with us! I'm also a huge Supernatural fan, and I think I’m in withdrawal now with the holidays, I need a new episode!

CoverResize1 Who knew an angel could get a girl in so much devilish trouble?< Jackie Brighton woke up in a dumpster this morning, and her day has only gotten weirder. Her breasts grew overnight, her sex drive is insatiable, and apparently she had her first one-night stand ever . . . with a fallen angel.

Of course, she only remembers gorgeous Noah’s enormous, er, package. And their steamy shower sex. Hmm . . . and the dark stranger whose bite transformed her into an immortal siren with a seductive Itch.

With help from Noah and fellow succubus Remy Summore, Jackie adapts to her new  lifestyle—until she accidentally strikes a deal that sends her lover into the deadly clutches of the vampire queen and lands Jackie, Remy, and the queen’s wickedly hot right-hand man into the middle of a fierce battle for an ancient halo.

But how’s a girl supposed to save the world when the enemy’s so hard to resist?

Read the first chapter online here.

Succubi Like It Hot_size 500FINAL COVERNobody said Sucking was easy.

With a flirtatious new figure, her dream job as an archaeologist, and two  gorgeous boyfriends to scratch her seductive Itch—an angel and a vampire—Jackie Brighton is totally getting the hang of life as a succubus.

Then her need for sex spirals out of control, and she accidentally knocks the pizza guy unconscious with her touch. Great, she’s cursed. Unfortunately, neither of her jealous lovers is exactly talking to her right now.

So after Jackie strikes a deal with a crafty demon, she and her best friend Remy take a cross-country road trip to deliver a cryptic message to the nation’s oldest succubus (who doesn’t look a day over eighteen.) Their journey gets weirder with every mile—demonic possession, a charming stalker, a deadly hotel room warning—but when they get to New Orleans, Jackie discovers a dangerous catch to her supernatural bargain. Someone wants her dead (again), but has she been sleeping with the enemy?

Or do the forces of evil think they’re some kind of match for a vixen in a miniskirt?

It Sucks To Be Her…

Living as a succubus has a bit of a learning curve, but with sexy fallen angel Noah to scratch her sensual Itch, Jackie Brighton is finally starting to feel ahead of the game. She almost doesn’t miss her gorgeous vampire master Zane – or his sinful, teasing mouth. She’s trying to convince herself of that, anyway.

But Jackie’s past mistakes catch up with her, spinning her life out of control once more. Just as her friend Remy’s inner demon comes out to play, Noah and Jackie are arrested by the angelic Serim Council. When Jackie seizes the chance to escape, she falls right into Zane’s waiting arms. As she’s pulled into a game of cat and mouse between vampires and angels, she finds she must also finally choose between the two men in her life. Can she decide between Noah and Zane, or will she lose everything she’s ever wanted? Because there’s more at stake than just her heart…
