Celebrating A New Siren Erotic Romance From Kortny Alexander

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Kortny Alexander's beautiful new erotic IR romance LOVE, INTERRUPTED.

Kortny Alexander is an addict for books. She loves to read. As a matter of fact, you don't even want to be around her when she's reading a series. She forget to eat, forget to feed the kids, forget doctor's appointments...It can get ugly.

Kortny lives in Georgia with her two extremely cool sons. They are not as addicted to reading but they are not too far behind. They both are writers as well. They rubbed off on her.

In all seriousness, it started off as a simple email to one of Kortny's favorite authors. She was instantly hooked on this vampire series and emailed the author, kindly demanding to know when the next book would be coming out. The author emailed back and told Kortny she'd have to hold on until the next year. So the next email Kornty sent, she teased that she'd better start drawing her own conclusions and writing her own version to keep her busy until the next book would be released. The author wrote back that she thought that would be an interesting idea.

The next morning it was as if a flood gate was opened. Story ideas bombarded Kortny so she started writing them down and it's been a non-stop fun journey every since.

Thanks to love she receives from her two very, very patient sons, her awesome brother and her wonderful mother, Kortny's been able to write to her heart's content...and she loves it!

Kortny hopes you will pick up one of her books and join her on an erotic fun-filled adventure.


LOVE, INTERRUPTED by Kortny Alexander

Hitomi Narcisse is fed up. All her friends keep trying to wedge a relationship into her carefully constructed life. She has plenty of risk in her business life. She doesn’t need the pain love brings.

A computer error during college paired her with Raiden Saga, a male roommate. They formed a surprising friendship that quietly grew over four years from an ember of interest to a passionate inferno. Hitomi, believing the intimate weekend to have been a mistake, flees first from their tryst and then cuts off all contact with Raiden.

Losing control is inevitable, though, when Raiden sweeps back into her life as a sweetly compelling complication. Hitomi falls in love with the widowed Raiden and his daughter…but will she believe herself worthy of love? Or will she run again, losing everything to her fears of letting go?

  4. After checking out the book it sounds very good. I love a grea chase for romance and from the sounds of it that is just the beginning of things....

  5. @Author Island
    Thanks for the compliments! I love the cover too. This was a fun love story to write. Like most of us we dont recognize our greatest love until its too late or we are afraid to get our hearts broken. This what this story is about. What would you do if you got a second chance at love?

    Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the book.

    Interesting question. My research at least a small portion of it came from my own life. As for doing research, I observe everyone and everything around me. My in-laws are Asian so that helped but you can always create your own world and possibilities. That's what makes writing so fun for me.

  8. @Tee
    Thanks and I hope you enjoy reading Hitomi's story.

  9. Congratulations on your new release. This sounds like it will be a very good book.

  10. Congrats. I too live in Georgia and am an avid reader. I doubt however that I could write anything. I depend on others imagination. Love the video. My question is what do your boy think of your work? Do they read it?

  11. Congrats on the release.

    Do you ever write (or want to write) a book where the plot revolves around something which you are not familiar with? I don't know if that made any sense? I guess an example would be a place you have never been so you took a trip there just to be able to write about it?

    Anyway looking forward to reading your book.

  12. @Sherry,
    Thanks for stopping by. I hope you get a chance to read it.

  13. @Donna
    Nothing like Georgia weather! I'm happy you liked the video. As for my sons, they know exactly what I write, the genre. They are avid readers but they aren't interested in what I write or the genre. I would never let them read my stories. They aren't old enough to read it. Even my paperbacks I have lying around aren't touched by them. They have no interest and I'm grateful for that. I've been reading erotic romance for a long time so when they would walk into the room and I was on a site buying a book or two they saw the book covers and just laughed.

    They understand there's nothing 'bad' about what I write and everyone has their favorite genres. They do think it's cool that I've taken a dream and turned it into reality. Neither of them are at that point. They just like to read and write their stories.

  14. @Ursula
    Good question. I have several books I'm working on that revolve around places I've never been to. Even in my first book I'd been to Las Vegas but never the state of Colorado. I do my research as much as I can. I ask my more well traveled friends questions or can they point me in the right direction to look for something.

    I can honestly say that the supernatural books I'm working on are not from experience. Sometimes I might see a statue on television and it will appear in my story, someway, somehow.

  15. Congratulations on your new release Kortney! It looks great.

    My question is about your writing process - do you plot your stories out or are you more of a "panster"? Do you listen to music while you write and does it help to inspire your scenes or characters if you do?


  16. @Maria
    Thanks for stopping by. I'm a plotter and a by-the-seat-of-my-pants writer. (I have no idea what panster is.) Sometimes the music I'm listening too will encourage my writing without sitting down and plotting. Honestly, it just depends on the day.

    Music always gives me inspiration. I have playlists set up for certain scenes.

  17. Congrats on your latest release! What do you like to read for fun?

    Thanks for stopping by. I've always loved the friends to lovers premise too. I like when the characters come together only to fall apart. I had a great time writing Hitomi and Raiden's story.
