Anniversary Shenanigans: Author Visit & Giveaway: Mia Kerick

Mia Kerick is here! She's stopping by and giving away one of my (Breann's) favorite favorites, Us Three. When Justin started squeeing over it, Jo, Lori and I had to jump in and read it, too! We all went fangirl over it together in our group review. Consider it unicorn approved. 

BMBR: What are your favorite M/M themes? 
Mia: I like to see unconditional love and I like to see a character who is saved by love. These themes are very romantic to me.

BMBR: What books do you consider Desert Island Keepers? 
Mia: The Locker Room by Amy Lane
Cut and Run Series by Abi Roux
Bareback by Chris Owen
The Twilight Series by Stephenie
Meyer Omorphi by Cody Kennedy

BMBR: What's your go-to tasty beverage? 
Mia: Go to drink is Arizona Sugar Free Pomegranate Iced Tea. I also like champagne and rum drinks…and Bailey’s Irish Cream on ice.

BMBR: Do you have any secret talents? Inquiring minds want to know. 
Mia: I have been known to hold a beer bottle between my breasts and drink with “no hands”, but it happens very rarely. Oh, and my kids know nothing about this talent so ssshhh. (I will deny it if asked about this talent in presence of kids)
BMBR: LOL! That is an awesome talent. One I am envious of!

BMBR: Who's your favorite porn star? 
Mia: Um. The only two I know from seeing them on Facebook are Jesse and Dirk. They seem like nice fellows with mega-huge muscles and they like the Boston Red Sox. So it would have to be a tie between them.

BMBR: Do you have author envy? Whose words do you read and think, "GAH, I wish I wrote that!"? 
Mia: I am inspired by Amy Lane. Sometimes I get compared to her, those are happy moments for me.

BMBR: If you had to choose to be one magical beast, what would it be and why?
Mia: Hmmm…. Does Pikachu count? I’ve always liked Pikachu.
BMBR: He's cute and totally counts.

BMBR: Any new projects you're currently working on? 
Mia: I am working on a YA Lesbian Romance right now- Kemina and Justine’s story.
BMBR: Can't wait for this!

Thanks so much for stopping by & chatting with us, Mia!

About the Author: 
Mia Kerick is the mother of four exceptional children—all named after saints—and five nonpedigreed cats—all named after the next best thing to saints, Boston Red Sox players. Her husband of twenty years has been told by many that he has the patience of Job, but don’t ask Mia about that, as it is a sensitive subject.

Mia focuses her stories on the emotional growth of troubled men and their relationships, and she believes that sex has a place in a love story, but not until it is firmly established as a love story. As a teen, Mia filled spiral-bound notebooks with romantic tales of tortured heroes (most of whom happened to strongly resemble lead vocalists of 1980s big-hair bands) and stuffed them under her mattress for safekeeping. She is thankful to Dreamspinner Press for providing her with an alternate place to stash her stories.

Mia is proud of her involvement with the Human Rights Campaign and cheers for each and every victory made in the name of marital equality. Her only major regret: never having taken typing or computer class in school, destining her to a life consumed with two-fingered pecking and constant prayer to the Gods of Technology.
