Aloha to Avery Flynn and BETTING THE BILLIONAIRE

Avery Flynn, famous for her Facebook posts of ManWars, joins me today for a cozy chat to celebrate the release of BETTING THE BILLIONAIRE:

Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Kim:  Aloha, Avery!  What is your favorite sight, sound, and smell of the Nation's Capital?

Avery:  Aloha! I love the National Zoo - even the smell of it. :) There’s just something so fun about getting to see all the animals and you can’t beat the pandas.

Kim:  Love your "send chocolate" button on your website. What is your "must have" chocolate? I am still hooked on Moana Loa's chocolate covered, toffee coated, macadamia nuts!

Avery:  YUM! I think I want some of those now. My true addiction though is Oreos. Seriously. I can do damage.

Kim:  Who or what helped you along the path to publishing?

Avery:  Pretty much everyone on the face of the earth. :) There are so many people who’ve helped, but one of the first was one of my original critique partners, Avril Ashton. The woman is a phenomenal writer and she helped me more than she’ll ever know.

Kim:  You and Kimberly Kincaid engage in Man Wars on Facebook. Who inspired GABE from BETTING THE BILLIONAIRE?

I don’t usually write with an actual person in mind, but I did find some guys who fit the bill afterward. You can check them out on my Pinterest board for Betting the Billionaire at this link.

Kim:  What's next for Avery Flynn?

Avery:  I’m working on the third book in the Killer Style series (High-Heeled Wonder is out now and This Year’s Black comes out next month) as well as the third book in my contemporary series set in Salvation, Virginia. You’re gonna love the Sweet triplets. :)

Thanks so much for having me!

Mahalo, Avery, for celebrating BETTING THE BILLIONAIRE with us:

If that man calls her one more time…

So what if Gabe Campos is a model-dating billionaire who gets Keisha Jacobs hotter than a Ferrari’s engine on the straightaway? He keeps pushing her to sell her family’s furniture business, but she’ll never give in—not unless she wants to give her father a second heart attack.

All Gabe should be thinking about is how he’ll finally get revenge on the man who killed his father. But when he meets the man’s daughter, Keisha, instead of focusing on destroying Jacobs Fine Furnishings, he can’t get her warm-whisky voice out of his mind.

Forced by a snow storm to spend the night together, their passion ignites. The next day, however, it’s back to business. The only way Keisha can save her family is to win a bet with the billionaire. But neither realized their hearts are part of the bargain…
