SPLICED Blog Tour Day 5

Welcome to the SPLICED blog tour! Spliced is a hot new M/M shifter serial with a difference and it's just hit the virtual shelves. Keep reading to find out more from the authors - including me! - of these 4 sexy books that will keep you reading late into the night. What's more, for this week only the books are only 99c/99p - grab them quick!

The theme of the Spliced books seems to be accepting yourself if you’re different—learning to love yourself no matter what. Is that the message you wanted to convey?

Sarah – Most definitely. I’ve said this before in interviews, but society really does boil my doodars. I wish people could just be left alone to live their life in peace, none of this “you must do this, you must look like that” business. Our shifters are so different—and they know it, bless them—so to come out of a compound they’ve been stuck in all their lives into the real world…they’re going to encounter some mean folks. As it happened, all of our men found their mates straight away (insta-love for the win!), so they didn’t have to suffer with standing out from the crowd for very long.

Lavinia - Absolutely! It’s a theme that almost everyone can relate to in some form or another. Most people want to fit in with their peers, and unfortunately life can be harsh sometimes for people who stand out from the crowd. Doesn’t everyone have something about themselves that they are unhappy about? Whether you think your nose is too big or you’re carrying a few extra pounds. Then, of course, there are minority groups who face prejudice every day for things that they can’t change about themselves, like the color of their skin or their sexuality. In these instances it’s paramount to our health and well-being that we learn to accept ourselves for who and what we are. The shifters in Spliced have always had each other inside the compound, but when they face the prospect of life outside the compound’s walls, they have so much anxiety about what strangers will think of them. Ultimately, they have to learn to accept themselves regardless of what other people think.

Lily - Absolutely. We all have issues about being different, not conforming, and Spliced hits that head-on. At the end of the day, the world would be a very boring place if we were all the same, and as they say, there is someone for everyone.

Jambrea - Yes. Totally. It seems people can be a bit judgmental in our society and more people need to be accepting. These stories, while paranormal, can help with that.

How many more Spliced books do you intend to write?

Sarah – As many as my imagination will give me. I love that world and the men in it so far, so look forward to seeing who else lives in the town. Or indeed the rest of the world. We made it clear in the first four books that there were splicer compounds all over the world; in fact, Joey from Kangorilla came from Australia. So with the compounds closing, the shifters have to go somewhere—if they can escape, that is. I won’t give anything away, but there is an underlying threat to these shifters, and escaping is the only option… Also, because we all know each other’s stories well, we can confidently mention established characters as we go along. I’m excited about all of the new Spliced books that can come out of the original four. I’m looking forward to Lavinia’s next one! Bearorilla!

Lavinia - I wouldn’t want to put a figure on it. As with all things I write, I’ll continue working on the stories for as long as I’m still enjoying writing them and for as long as I have new story ideas. It can be difficult to write even on the best of days with all the distractions of daily life, but it’s almost impossible to work on something that is no longer fun. Writing becomes a chore then, and that is something it should never be. So who knows? There’ll definitely be at least a couple more, and I hope the other authors feel the same way.

Lily - As many as I can!

Jambrea - Oh my. I have no idea, but it can be something that goes on for a long time.

Here are the blurbs!

Spliced Series:

When scientists mess with the most primitive elements of a man’s core, the results are bound to be explosive.

Living a loveless existence is hard for any shifter, but having DNA spliced with creatures who stand out from the crowd is damn near impossible. Which is why four experimented-on souls decide to break free from the chains that hold them, climb the fences that circle them, and go in search of adventure, passion and most of all, their mates.

But nothing worth having is ever easy, and for Sharkorilla, Pugorilla, Kangorilla and Elephorilla, this is definitely the case. They’ve come to the end of one very long, hard and frustrating road, but now, with the help of men who have big hearts, they must shed their fears, accept their bodies, and be true to the desires that burn within them. The only problem is, will they get away with it?

Please note, Spliced can be enjoyed as individual stories, but reading in order enhances the pleasure as you get to see the progression of the shifter's sexy adventures.

Sharkorilla – Mason has been tasked with the job of helping his fellow shifters escape from the compound. Two techs need his help to ensure the breakout goes smoothly. One of those techs, Brennan, has a thing for Mason—and Mason has a thing for Brennan too.

Once Mason and his three friends are out of the compound, running for their lives across the expanse of the Yorkshire Moors, Mason wonders whether they’ll manage to be free for more than the time it takes to speed farther than a few feet. Freedom—the feeling of it is addictive, and Mason wants more of it. He isn’t prepared to give it up without a fight.

With Brennan by his side, Mason knows he can accomplish anything. There is one burning question, though. Can Mason really accept who he is? Can he learn to love himself as half shark, half gorilla? If he doesn’t, he has a feeling life won’t be all roses, despite being free of the compound.

So, he’ll just have to give his new life his best shot, won’t he?

Pugorilla - After being created in a lab, his DNA spliced with both canine and primate genes, Dex has spent his entire life locked up. He has always longed to see the outside world and to find lasting love with that one special person—dreams he never thought would come to fruition. Yet when he and his friends discover a plot to kill them all, they have no choice but to plan an escape. A life outside the walls of their compound is everything that Dex has ever hoped for, but there’s only one problem—James, a lab technician who Dex can’t seem to get out of his heart or head.

Kangorilla – Joey has it tough. Not only has he been spliced with a kangaroo and a gorilla, he’s also been brought to the other side of the world. Feeling exploited, desperate and wishing he had love, companionship and acceptance, he takes the risk of leaving the compound in the search of happiness. But will he find it? Or has the person he’s drawn to got other ideas? It certainly seems that way as the temperature goes from boiling hot to downright frosty.

Elephorilla - George hates change, but when his only two options are death or escape, he runs away with his friends into the unknown. Will he be able to find not only a new life, but a new love?
