Three Things About the 69 Shades Authors

Welcome to the kickoff of our blog! We’re glad you decided to join us, and we hope you’ll stop by often.

We have lots of exciting things coming your way. Guest bloggers, theme months, cover model interviews, and contests.

And the first contest starts today! Each of the authors will be giving away one e-copy of winner’s choice of any book from their backlist. To be entered, all you have to do is leave a comment before midnight PST June 2, 2012. Each day, we’ll take a turn posting our introduction. Each time you leave a comment, you’re entered again in the contest.

Winners will be announced on the blog June 3, 2012.

To start you out, here are a few interesting things about each of us. Enjoy!

Jasmine Haynes

1) I also write as laugh-out-loud sexy mysteries as Jennifer Skully.

2) I’ve done a couple of past-life regressions (does that make me a weirdo?) and now I’m working on a reincarnation trilogy.

3) I have a dinosaur garden outside my office window.

Randi Alexander

1) I like to sleep a lot. Minimum 9 hours a night.

2) I’m kind of klutzy. I’ve dropped my laptop at least five times already this year. (Toshibas are klutz-proof!)

3) I used to teach country line dancing. Now, I create my own line dances and talk my friends into dancing with me.

Em Petrova

(1) Yes, I know how to fill out a bra.

(2) My idol is Bellatrix Lestrange from the Harry Potter series and if you ask nicely, I might someday show you a picture of my Bellatrix costume last Halloween.

(3) I’m known for scorching, thigh-clenching, melt-your-face menages.

Sexy SpankingPaige Tyler

1. I write stories so hot they’ll make your cheeks blush, and yet I’m innocent enough to love eveything and anything Disney!

2. I’m a total girly-girl and have over 2400 beauty-insider points at Sephora to prove it, and yet during football season I put on my team’s QB jersey and scream at the quarterback to throw the stupid football!

3. I’m an exercise fanatic, and yet I’m addicted to chocolate. Yeah, we buy those Brachs Stars by the pound. Once when the cashier rang it up wrong and said we owed two-hundred dollars for the chocolate, I didn’t bat an eye!

Mia Ashlinn

1.  I have an over-the-top obsession with cherries yet they are not my favorite fruit.  Bananas are.

2.  Laughter is my favorite past time, and I make sure to indulge as often as I can.

3.  I am a jumpy person.  If someone scares me (which is very easy, by the way), I will scream louder than the leading lady in a horror film only seconds before her untimely death.  Now that is downright scary!

Drea Becraft

1) Growing up I absolutely hated reading…it wasn’t until my early 20’s that I started my love affair with the written word.

2) While the rest of my family (Including my husband) are amazing cooks I can’t cook to save my life unless it comes from a box or can.

3) Whenever I think up a new story in my head I am always the lead woman character no matter if its male of female…Now if only I could write as well as I dream I would be a millionaire lol.

Sky Robinson

1.)    I make my own wine…and drink a lot of it.

2.)    I am terrified of tornados and sleep in the basement if there is even a chance of one coming near.

3.)    I love to cook and hate to clean.

W. Lynn Chantale

I love to bake. Chocolate chip cookies and caramel pecan sticky buns are my specialty.

I think I’m the most unromantic woman in the world.

Oh and one last thing about me my favorite color is pink. 🙂

  Dita Parker

  1. I’ve always liked my men on the dark side. Dark hair, eyes, complexion… So, obviously, I married vampire Eric’s second cousin.

  2. I’ve had sex in public places. Busted, at least on one occasion. Thank you, sir, for not stopping to take pictures.

  3. I sleep on my back or my side but never on my stomach. How do women with any breasts sleep on their stomach? That was not a rhetorical question, btw.

Savannah Chase 

1. My dream is to travel the globe and write.

2. I write erotic romance but yet I can be very shy at times.

3. I have a very kinky side to me that many don’t know about.

Benjamin Russell

1. I eat Oreo cookies the way I eat – Anyway, I spread the two cookies apart and then I slowly lick the cream off each ‘cookie’ before I pop the wet ‘cookies’ in my mouth.

2. I have no idea why these gorgeous women invited me to join them on a blog called “69” anything. That’s sort of like them walking into the tiger’s den with hamburger panties on.

3. I think Prince’s Song ‘Do Me’ – is the greatest love making song ever written. “Here we are in this big old empty room, staring each other down. U want me just as much as I want U, let’s stop fooling around. Do Me Baby, like U never done before. Give it to me till I just can’t take no more. Do Me Baby, like u never done before. I want U now, I just can’t wait no more, can’t wait…

Dawne Prochilo

I have three grown children and one grandson- 3 weeks old today.
I am legally deaf in my right ear.
I have a CDL license and can drive a school bus.

    What a great idea! Love seeing authors here that I love! I will be following this blog closely. Seeing those I know..Jasmine Haynes, W. Lynn Chantale, Savannah Chase, Randi Alexander, Benjamin Russel…woohoo!

    And now newer authors…going to have to check all of you out! Love learning the three things about you all.



    • Hi Nikki, and welcome to our blog! I hope you visit and visit often and get to know us all better, these three things are just for starters! Speaking of which…69ers, you got some explaining to do! Ladies first.

      So Jasmine, Jurassic Park?

      Mia, dare I ask how this over-the-top obsession with cherries manifests itself?

      Lynn, dare I ask how this unromanticism manifests itself? I don’t believe it. I refuse to believe it! You write romance!!

      Randi, I love dancing! Anything else besides line dancing you’re passionate about?

      Savannah is out bushwhacking somewhere, but when she gets back, she’ll have to elaborate on that kinky side of hers. Hey, she brought it up, not me!

      Benjamin Russell! Hamburger panties…

      And before you ask, no, I didn’t go to Times Square, Red Square or Piccadilly Circus, strip and get it on in public. I dare you to ask what did I do then. Because I just might tell ya. Not saying I will. But I might.

      Okay… Shutting up and stepping out for a moment so you can get a word in, but I’ll be back later. Take it away, ladies and gentleman!


      • Hi Dita, um my hubby has the romantic streak. Flowers, cards, candlelight, indoor picnics and such he does those things for me and I write about them. I’m usually the one struggling to find the perfect gift.


      • Mia Ashlinn


        The cherry obsession manifests itself in pretty much anything. This fetish is a non-sexual one! LOL. I love anything and everything that has cherries on it – clothes, books, etc. I will pretty much buy anything that has a cherry on it, as long as I can afford it. Yes, a friend of mine found a Louis Vuitton purse that was a bit too expensive for my taste…or my husband’s.

        Actually, it has become a game with some friends to find cherry things…For example, my awesome hubby will point something out with cherries on it and say, “Now I know you love that.” Of course, he is always right. I do! 🙂



        • Thanks for elaborating, Mia, now I’d love to see your house!

          And cherries are on the sweet side of sexy, aren’t they? Just think if instead you did have a thing for bananas… Writing erotic romance and all, you’d never hear the end of it.


          • Mia Ashlinn

            You are welcome! You do have a good point about the bananas…LOL. Everyone would torment me, and I would walk around with a perpetual blush! Oh wait, I do that already – just not about bananas! 🙂


    • Randi Alexander

      Hi Nikki, thanks for stopping by!


    • Hey Nikki!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!



    • Hi Nikki. Great to see you here. This should be a lot of fun.


    • Sky Robinson

      Welcome Nikki!


    • Hi ebondreams, welcome and please come back for more. By the way, I don’t bite – well, not all the time anyway.


    • Thank you so much….I am so honored to be among so many amazing authors.


  2. Jennifer

    Love this! I’m excited to read more about authors I already know and enjoy …and to find out about new authors! This looks like it’s going to be fun 😀



  3. What a great idea! Can’t wait to read more of the posts!


  4. Sky Robinson

    I keep reading Benjamin’s post over and over… Glad to have you with us Benjamin 🙂


  5. All this hotness in one spot! Something’s going to spontaneously combust for sure! Happy launch to the 69ers!


  6. Happy to be here and excited about the new friends I’m sure to make! Not to mention the eye candy, yes?


  7. Patti P

I look forward to learning more about each of you and reading your novels. I will admit I have only heard of a few of you and cannot wait to pimp you all out to my friends!! A shout out to Randi and Mia and a big HOWDY!!


  12. Hmm…so I was right about Paige Tyler :). Fun blog and I’m following so I don’t plan to miss any of them. Looking forward to finding out about stories from authors I haven’t read before, and those who I have.


  13. Ben I will never look at an Oreo the same way again. No wonder it’s milk’s favorite cookie. 🙂


  14. ebondreams

    Good morning all…thank you for the welcome. And so you know I added you all to my author page, I tweeted this page as well as shared it on Facebook…! Nothing like getting the party started right.



  15. Ebony

  16. Jasmine Haynes

    Hey, everyone! Sorry I’m up so late! Love everyone’s 3 things! And yes, Dita, it’s Jurassic Park out front of my house, LOL! Rosemary, thanks for stopping by, too. And it’s so nice to see all the new faces, too! Let’s party!


  17. Jasmine,

    Hahahaha, now I know why you responded the way you did to my comment about Clive Cussler book empire of writers.

    Have the big fun with this – and sell lots of books!

    Now if you need a good spy novel or tech/action let me know.



    • Jasmine Haynes

      That’s right, Mike! Thanks for stopping by and helping out with the fun!


  18. Lisa Baugh

    Love the information about all of you, it makes you guys more like a real person than just a name on the cover of a book with a picture on the back :} @ Benjamin, that was naughty!! @ Dita, women with boobs can’t sleep ontheir stomachs! lol if they can i consider them super woman cuz it is just plain uncomfortable and makes it difficult to breath easily (in my opinion anyway ;} ) Thank you to all of you for sharing a bit of yourselves with all of us.


  19. Tara

    Great blog and fabulous name! I haven’t read all the authors and I look forward to checking them out.


  20. Peggy

    I had to come and see what all you naughty,lovely ladies were talking about. Well ,I found out. You are all talking about smut…… I love smut!! I see some authors that i know AND I see others that I’m gonna have to check out! Keep up the smut talk ladies ! 🙂 lol


  21. Peggy

    My apologies to Mr. Russell ( i left him out of my post)…..he sounds naughty too! 🙂


  22. Jasmine Haynes

    Thanks for stopping by to learn all about us, Lisa, Tara, and Peggy! We’re all about entertainment. And smut!


  23. Nikki shared this blog, and I’m so glad she did!! I love the three things about each of you…amazing that you can learn so much about a person from just three things. I’ll be checking back in often!


  24. Katheryn Wallis

    Hi all! Looks like a fun new blog!!

    Actually, even women with big boobs can sleep on their stomachs… if they have enough pillows. I used to do this all the time (and I range from a DD to an F depending on various things). It worked as long as I had a thick pillow to hold my head up as high as my boobs. (Of course, this can be hard on your lower back since it spends the night curved up….)

    Someone else mentioned difficulty breathing; I have that if I try to sleep on my back. All that weight holding my chest down. 😉


    • Jasmine Haynes

      I don’t have big boobs, and I sleep on my side! A fourth thing revealed about me! Thanks for joining the fun, Katheryn!


    • Hi Katheryn! And I thought it couldn’t be done… It does sound like a pain in the…well some place, depending, you know. But I’m glad you’ve worked it out. Gotta love women. We have a practical solution to just about everything.

      Thanks for playing!


    • Katheryn, I will have to try that out…I think it just depends on the size and how comfy we the way welcome to our place…So glad you came by..


  25. Mia Ashlinn

    Hi all! It looks like I am a bit late to the party. So, since I have been a bad girl, I could use a spanking – if someone must. But I digress… 🙂

    Thank you to everyone who has come by today! I am super excited about this new blog…and I hope you return very soon. With the eye candy and the naughty authors, I know we are going to embark on a very smutty journey together!

    Love and kisses!


  26. Mia Ashlinn

    p.s. I am seriously technology challenged so please bear with me as I learn the ropes! 🙂


  27. Jasmine Haynes

    You’re a bad girl, Nikki, LOL! And Mia, you’re doing fine. Not much technology needed here!


  28. Wow! Loved those introductions…although now I have to go find something chocolate! And hey…some of us flat-chested women don’t sleep on our stomachs either!


    • Sky Robinson

      Thanks for stopping by ELF. I’m with you there. Have no problem sleeping on my stomach if I wanted to 🙂


    • Jasmine Haynes
