The Nine Days of Nine Naughty Novelists Interviews: PG Forte (+Giveaway)


About PG Forte one of the Nine Naughty Novelists
PG Forte inhabits a world only slightly less strange than the ones she creates. 
Filled with serendipity, coincidence, love at first sight and dreams come true.

She wrote her first serialized story when she was still in her teens. The sexy, ongoing adventure tales were very popular at her oh-so-proper, all girls, Catholic High School, where they helped to liven up otherwise dull classes...even if her teachers didn't always think so.

Originally a Jersey girl, PG now resides with her family on the extreme left coast where she writes contemporary and paranormal romance in a variety of sub-genres.

PG can be reached directly at: 
pgforte@pgforte.com  She can also be found on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/AuthorPGForte/) and Twitter: (https://twitter.com/PGForte)

1. PG what can you remember of then when you and the other Naughty Novelists decided to come together to create the writing collective?

I remember it as being an insanely fun time. We’d been blogging together as a group for awhile by then, and we'd been talking about doing a joint project forever, but we weren’t sure what it should be. Then we started chatting about it online and, over the course of a couple of very long sessions, everything came together. If you haven’t read our blog posts where we first introduced The Zillionaire Vampire Cowboy’s Secret Werewolf Babies I strongly suggest you do. They’re almost as zany as the book itself—and the trailers Kelly Jamieson made are killer!  I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my life.

Later, of course, we gave If You Give a Duke A Duchy (which was originally titled, Love’s Savage Whiplash) the same treatment, although the intro to that one wasn’t as elaborate (just the one blog post instead of four!) because, by then, people knew what to expect from us.

2. I have one question! I loved reading your first chapter introduction in If You Give A Duke A Duchy PG, especially about the French servant Mr. Lumiere but whatever happened to the man in If You Give A Duke A Duchy. 

Ah, Monsieur Lumiere. He was a fun character.  Well, obviously, he felt terrible when he realized his mistake. In fact he was so traumatized at having confused le Duc for le duck that he immediately became a vegetarian. Wicked Uncle Wickham couldn’t take the chance that his nephew’s valet would screw up again and let something slip about the “real” duke being gone, so he quickly pensioned Lumiere off.

I have to say, this suited Lumiere just fine. He was fed up with England anyway. The situation in France, at that time, being what it was,  I imagine he would have emigrated to America, possibly in the company of the upstairs chambermaid with whom he was having an affair.  They would have opened the first French vegetarian restaurant in New Orleans and become somewhat famous.

Eventually, however, Lumiere’s signature dish, roasted garlic soup, would have attracted the attention of the area’s vampires—and not in a good way. When Lumiere refused to stop making his soup, the vampires made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. They turned him into a vampire, thereby  ending both his culinary and his vegetarian career—with one bite, so to speak.

When last I heard, Lumiere had gone to work for Rene Boudreaux, also a vampire, and the main character from Blame It On The Voodoo, which is my contribution to the Naughty Nine’s third joint project, a short story anthology titled Nine Nights in New Orleans.

3. What did you love about co-writing The Zillionaire Vampire Cowboy's Secret Werewolf Babies and If You Give A Duke A Duchy in particular?

I loved how amazingly funny my fellow naughties were.  I don’t think any of us could have predicted that. We’d each take a turn writing a chapter, then we’d submit it to the group and just about die laughing.  Each chapter was funnier than the one before it.

4. Will there be more co-creation with the Naughties?

Well obviously we’ve talked about collaborating on several different writing projects since then, but our schedules haven’t allowed for it. So it seems unlikely at this point. However, several of us have worked on other joint projects in the past, and there are definitely more of those in the works for the future. But for the group as a whole? It would be awesome, but I don't see it happening.

However, I can tell you that Kelly Jamieson, Kate Davies and I are currently working on a series set in a winery in Napa, California. No, it’s not Bloodsuck, but the Napa location does provide us with a great excuse for taking research trips.

5. What are you currently up to in writing?

I’m currently trying to write the last two books in my Children of Night vampire series, but I hate endings, so I’m finding it hard to let them go. I’m also working on a contemporary tattoo series, which is a spin-off from my story Inked Memories (which was my contribution to Midnight Ink—another fun collaboration, although not with the Naughty Nine) and a steampunk series that’s a spin-off of my novella This Winter Heart from the Clockwork Christmas anthology with—yet again—another amazing group of authors.

I also wanted to say that there were some free reads available on my blog, Rhymes with Foreplay. Those can be found here: http://rhymeswithforeplay.blogspot.com/p/free-reads.html

And, finally, you can join my Facebook group, The Crone’s Nest, to keep up with what’s going on with me.  There’s a link on that page for a free download of my novella, Such Fleeting Pleasures, which is the prequel to my Oberon series. https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheCronesNest/
