5 Things: Louisa Blacio ~ Master Class #BlogTour #Menage @LouisaBacio @InthePages

 

Welcome to Louisa Blacio & her new release, Master Class.

What 5 things have you learned since you began writing?

5) Writing a book is exhausting.

If you juggle a job, a family, a social life and writing on top of all that, learn to live on less sleep.

4) Getting your work published is exhausting.

One of my last books I turned in February 2015. Of course, edits came back a year later, the night before I was going to leave on spring break. The good news is that you learn to get through them faster.

3). Marketing your work is exhausting.

No one ever explained the concept of writing your next book, editing your current book and marketing the one that just came out. Be prepared to mental multitask.

2). Hosting a FB party is exhausting.

My laptop always crashes during a FB party. When a good friend was going to do her first one, she planned out 12 posts/activities for the hour. I told her I usually do four or five. Yep! She had way too much material. Expect to refresh a LOT.

But guess what? It’s also a blast!

1). I wouldn’t change any part of the process!

Yes, it is exhausting, but guess what? It’s rewarding and stimulating and challenging and a ride worth it all!

 

It’s been a long road, but thrilled to announce that the all-new, full-length novel The Master Class has been released. In book 3 of Sex University, everything Ms. Lucy thought was the truth turns upside down.

Book 3: The Master Class

A love triangle for a new age of romance.

Clarissa abandoned her fiancé and their upcoming wedding in order to find her path. With a fresh relationship with a woman, she looks forward never back – until her ex comes searching. Trapped between the man she’s destined to marry and the woman who’s won her heart, tough decisions lie ahead.

As headmistress of Sex University, Lucy knows life comes with complications. She designs a new Master Class to help troubled couples before knowing she’d become a star student.

Determined to salvage his love, Mario, the man between them, needs to let go and realize he’s not always in control. Tantalizing lessons lie ahead for this threesome.

Sometimes the past catches up.

Available now via Amazon, ARe and other eRetailers.

 

Excerpt

“You’ve been making a lot of noise, Mr. Cavallo. I had to see you. Otherwise, you threatened to never leave, and then there was the allegation of ‘kidnapping.’ I don’t understand. Who do you think we’re holding prisoner? Everyone is here of their own free will.”
“Please call me Mario. I’m sorry to cause such a disturbance, but the last communications from my fiancée came from San Francisco and this school specifically.”
He looked around her office. “I’m not quite sure what you do here, but I have a basic understanding, and I have no idea why Lara would be here. She’s not that type of girl.”
That type of girl? He’d be shocked at what “type” attended the school.
Shaking her head, Ms. Lucy tried to address the situation with patience. “I’m sorry, but we don’t have anyone registered here under that name. There must be a mistake.”
“Ahhh wait,” he said, opening a black leather portfolio and removing a few photographs. He inspected them, and a crease marred his handsome brow. In that moment, seeing the mixture of pain and love collide on his face, she knew she’d help him. No matter what it took.
“I had a private detective look for her. Here are some pictures he took.” As he laid them on the desk in front of her, her heart stuttered as she drank in the photos. The woman in front of her was all too familiar. “She’s going under her given name, Clarissa.”

Book 2: Learning Curves

Raised by an over-controlling and manipulative father, Savannah “Van” Morgan flees the East Coast for the West, seeking sanctuary with her Aunt Lucy, headmistress of San Francisco Sex University. Rather than staying at the main campus, Van enrolls in SFSU’s more nurturing “sister” school.

After visiting the main campus of SFSU, Margaret “Maggie” O’Neil hangs up her police badge in search of new experiences and hoping to awake her own dormant sexuality.

With subjects such as an “Art Sex-education” class with an Italian professor who’s happy to schedule private tutoring after-hours, the school invites all sorts of sexual exploration. In the end, Van and Maggie fight to overcome the Learning Curves to overcome the pressures of society and save each other.

Available now via Amazon, ARe, B&N and other eRetailers.

 

Book 1: Physical Education

Tired of sexual norms and wanting to expand her pleasure, Amanda “Mandi” Wilkinson enrolls in summer school at San Francisco Sex University, an exclusive sex school located in the heart of San Francisco. What Mandi doesn’t realize is that not all the mysterious drop-outs are simply flunking sex-ed.

Reed McAllister came to Sex U. for reasons all his own. Undercover, he’s searching for a woman, the right woman, and so far he doesn’t have any leads. Reed never saw himself working at a place such as SFSU, let alone instructing, but he had to admit it – the job did come with its perks.

When Mandi turns up on the missing list, will Reed be able to save her and give her the lessons she so desires?

Available now via Amazon, ARe, Smashwords and other eRetailers.

 

Christian Mingle

Sometimes you need to experience what’s wrong in order to find out what’s right.

As scandal after scandal piles up and her husband’s caught cheating, Jody Druger hides at the last place the non-reality TV shows expect: Sex University.

While fighting through her bedroom inhibitions, Jody learns who she really is and forges plans for an independent future, discovering new pathways toward pleasure in the process, a truly religious experience.

Available now via Amazon, ARe, Riverdale Avenue Books, Smashwords and at other eRetailers.

Summer School – Series Starter
A Short Story from Sex University

Ms. Lucy dreams of starting a sex school in San Francisco, the City of Love. After interviewing some promising candidates, including Antoinella De Luca, an artist who integrates her tools into playtime, and twin blond surfer hotties, Blaine and Wayne, Lucy launches a soft opening, Summer School.

One of the first students to join, Willow, comes seeking to explore new experiences. When paired with Ted, who she feels is way out of her league, it’s a game of give or give.

Lucy likes it when the shy ones pair up with those with more confidence. And so do we!

Available via Amazon, ARe, Riverdale Avenue Books and other eRetailers.

Blog Tour ~ Claiming the She-Wolf by Louisa Bacio #BlackHillsWolves #Shifter @InThePages @LouisaBacio @DecadentPub

Claiming the She-wolfBlack Hills Wolves
Claiming the She-Wolf by Louisa Bacio
When her older brother leaves the Black Hills to go to college, Tala Graystone stays behind, determined to restore their dilapidated home into a B&B for the pack. As more people return to the area, the need for temporary housing increases. Now, if only she can find someone to help with the heavy lifting.

Yas Collins fled Los Lobos as a child with his mother. As he struggles with his wolf and overpowering shifts, a desire for nature and the forest strikes hard. Black Hills, South Dakota, beckons him. With a background in construction, he easily finds work at Tala’s dilapidated B&B, but not everyone in town greets him with open arms.

As the remodel gets underway, Tala and Yas fight their growing attraction. Yas doesn’t trust his wolf urges around beautiful B&B owner. The she-wolf, however, has other plans.

 

Excerpt from Claiming the She-Wolf:

A growl from low in his throat threatened to escape. The rumble started in his chest, and he fought to keep it down.

She turned, looking down at him. “Did you say something?”

“Umm, no. Just clearing my throat.”

He needed to get his base instincts under control. Recent research showed that wolves in the wild killed in order to protect their domains and to get more space. He didn’t want to be ruled by his wolf. He’d grown up in the city, with humans, not out in the forest. His mom had tried to talk to him about shifting, but as a woman, she didn’t have the same experience.

He couldn’t go to a shifters anonymous group for help with his sexual urges. Maybe he needed to start his own support group. He snorted at the idea. At the top of the landing, Tala turned to the right, and he followed.

They entered what had to be the master bedroom suite. It was painted a vibrant lavender color, and the bed had a green floral comforter with an abundance of fluffy throw pillows. White dollies rested on the two nightstands, and a vase of wildflowers called for attention. The feminine room seemed in sharp contrast to his host. She didn’t look frilly.

“This will be your quarters.” Her lips pursed, and she blinked a few times.

The idea shocked him. “What? I’m sorry, but it looks like your room.”

“Well, it has been. But it’s the nicest room in the house, and as a guest, figure you should have it to be comfortable. I’ll move my things into another one.”

He waved his hands in front of him, as if shooing away something physically bad. “No way. No can do. Give me the second best, then. My first job can be fixing it up.”

She smiled. “Well, second best would be my brother’s room, and even though he’s on a trip right now, I don’t feel comfortable moving his stuff. So third best, and we work today to make it more, um, livable?”

Her choice of words made him pause. “Deal.”
