Update! All of the names have been put into a hat and ... Laurann Dohner is the lucky winner of my book giveaway! Thanks so much to all of you who played along. Look for another giveaway coming soon!
Hello everyone! My name is Stephanie Adkins, and I’m the newest kid on the block here at Naughty Author Chicks. I love writing contemporary erotic romance stories, but I’ve also dabbled in suspense and the paranormal world. My first book, Breathing Shallow, debuted in December 2008 from Liquid Silver Books. Since then, I’ve been published with Ellora’s Cave, Loose Id, Phaze Books, and Cobblestone Press. I have three new stories debuting this spring, and I can’t wait to tell you all about them! But first, I need to make a confession. (Now go ahead and get your minds out of the gutter. It's not that kind of confession. Those will come later. * wink*)
You know, I used to think I was really good at grammar and punctuation. English was my favorite subject in high school and college. Nouns and verbs made me drool. Book reports and essays? Oh yeah, I was all over that. So, when I wrote Breathing Shallow, I thought it was polished and the epitome of perfection. (Yeah right!) But when Liquid Silver Books accepted it, and I received my first round of edits, I was SO embarrassed. My poor editor, Lynne, had her work cut out for her when she got me. Thank goodness the woman has the patience of Job. We've since worked together a second time, and hopefully she'll be working with me on my third upcoming release from LSB because I don't think I could break in another editor. They might run from me screaming and never return. *grin*
I'm very proud to say that I've improved a ton over the past thirteen months. The editors, publishers, and numerous author friends I've come in contact with have been such an enormous help to me. It's all a learning experience, but there are still things that trip me up every now and then no matter how many stories I write. I've just come to accept the fact that comma's are evil little trolls. LOL
If you’ve never read one of my stories, I hope you’ll consider diving in to one of them, and if you'd like the chance to win a PDF copy of my book, Breathing Shallow, then leave a comment to this post. I'll be drawing a name at the end of the day, and it will be posted here by 8 AM (CST) tomorrow morning. Good luck!
