Chating with Karenna Colcroft & GIVEAWAY!

August 3, 2011

I am so excited to have multi-published romance author, KARENNA COLCROFT here with me today! Make sure to leave a comment to be entered to win your choice of one of her previous Ellora’s Cave titles! (Seeds of Desire or Hear Me, See Me)

LisaFox: So, tell us about you. Who is Karenna Colcroft?

KarennaColcroft: Karenna Colcroft is an alter ego. In real life, I’m pretty shy, but in my writing, I’m anything but! I’ve been writing since I was five years old, and started writing erotic romance in 2006 after a challenge from a friend. My first erotic romance e-book was published in 2009, and since then I’ve been published by several e-publishers, including Pink Petal Books, Ellora’s Cave, Noble Romance, Siren Publishing, and MLR Press.

LF: You are a romance author, but do you consider yourself a romantic?

KC: I never used to, but since I met my husband in May 2008, I’d have to say yes.

LF: Tell us all about Will, your hero in FOREVER WITH BENEFITS.

KC: Will has a good heart and is very intelligent. He was an athlete in high school and had college scholarships, but gave those up to stay in town and help his mother take care of his ill father. He’s dated, of course, but has always kept a soft spot in his heart for Haylie Betancourt, the heroine of the story.

LF: Who plays him in the movie?

KC: When I created the character, I was visualizing an older version of Chord Overstreet, who played Sam on Glee. So I guess if the movie is made in ten years or so, Chord could play Will.

(picture him just as sexy, but older)

LF: Do you have any particular writing rituals?

KC: No, I don’t. I just sit at my computer and hope that the words come out.

LF: You are stuck on a deserted island. A magic genie appears and though you cannot leave the island, you are allowed to ask for five things. What are they?

KC: ’d really rather leave the island…I’m kind of oppositional that way. I guess barring that, I’d ask for a pile of wood, a saw, a hammer, a bunch of nails, and some cloth. Then I could build my own sailboat or raft and try to leave the island that way.

LF: Any new projects in the works?

KC: Several. I just finished and submitted Veggie Burgers to Go, a sequel to my M/M shifter novel Salad on the Side, which was released in June from MLR Press. I also just submitted another novella to Ellora’s Cave, Remind Me, about a married couple who go to extremes to try to bring the sexual spark back to their marriage. I’m working on the first draft of an M/F novel currently titled Beta Test, about a werewolf pack beta (second in command) who finds his mate—who is human. Some of the characters from Salad on the Side make “cameo” appearances; the novel will be submitted to MLR’s sister imprint Passion in Print. I have a couple other projects in the planning stages but haven’t started writing them yet.

LF: How can people find you online?

KC: My website is My blog is part of that site. I’m on Facebook at, and on Twitter as @KarennaColcroft. I have an Amazon Author page and a Goodreads account, but I’m unfortunately very bad about remembering to check those…


Haylie Betancourt has never had time for love, which is why in high school, she refused to act on her feelings for Will Shaw. Ten years later, a chance encounter with Will has her thinking. Love still isn’t in her plans, but since they’re in the same town, why not be friends with benefits?

The first time she and Will sleep together, it’s incredible. And the sex just keeps getting hotter. But so do Will’s feelings for Haylie and his feeling that she’s using him. When he tells Haylie he wants more than sex, she rejects him. But it doesn’t take her long to realize that she wants the same thing he does. After all, sex only gets better when love’s involved.

LEAVE A COMMENT AND WIN A COPY OF Seeds of Desire or Hear Me, See Me!

Winner will be announced Monday, August, 8, 2011

    Loved the interview, Lisa and Karenna! and LOL–I’m of mixed feelings about remaining stuck anywhere, much less an island 🙂 Of course, I’m not really the handy sort, and am not at all confident that I could build myself something seaworthy to escape! Maybe I could ask for supplies AND a handy, hunky companion who *could* build us an escape 🙂 I love the sounds of Forever with Benefits–I’ve always loved those second-chance type stories!
