Anna Ellis Author Tour

Blurb for Touch:
What happens when you meet the man of your dreams…and his wife?

Kenna has spent the last two years since her divorce alone, focusing on her writing and not giving the lack of romance in her life much thought. She hasn’t missed the touch of others until she meets Iliya.

Iliya is beautiful, vivacious and confident and Kenna is drawn to her immediately. When she meets Iliya’s husband, Kenna is torn. Iliya and Del are warm and friendly and welcome Kenna into their life, but Kenna is guilty about the feelings she develops for the couple, feelings that are more than friendship. Feeling for Del…and for Iliya.

Kenna doesn’t know what to do about the attraction she feels for Del and Iliya…until Iliya confesses she feels the same way. So does Del.

Iliya tells Kenna they aren’t like other married couples and they want to include Kenna in their life.

Is this what Kenna wants? Can she handle the touch of others?


Excerpt from Touch:
I lose all track of what Jane is saying as I watch him walk towards us, thewarmth of my cheeks increasing with every step. My stomach clenches like a fist and I have trouble catching my breath. The flicker of recognition I have is ignored by my more visceral reactions.

 “Ladies.” His voice is better than dipping your finger in warm melted chocolate and licking it off.  “Nice walk?” He blinks sleepily at us, with the most beautiful green eyes I’ve ever seen. I have green eyes the colour of moss in a damp forest; these eyes are more emerald and such a contrast with his dark bronze skin that the effect is breath-taking.
He is breath-taking.

He’s also half-asleep, still dressed in flannel pajama pants. I have a sudden, vivid image of him lounging in a huge bed, pillows strewn about, and sheets tangled around his long legs, leaning over…

Something stretches inside me, woken from a long sleep.

“It makes it all the more worthwhile when you’re here to meet us at the end,” Jane says with a perky smile. It’s not just me who has been affected; Jane is standing straighter with the hint of the belly sucked in and the size B cup boobs thrust out. This guy has some sort of power if he’s got me…

This is Iliya’s husband.

My heart sinks as fast and hard as a rock thrown in the ocean and all I can think of that line from the Alanis Morrisette song, “Meeting the man of your dreams and meeting his beautiful wife.”



Anna, thanks so much for stopping by. So, how did you get started writing?
I’ve always wrote, ever since I was a little girl. But as for what I write now – I was writing a women’s fiction novel and I noticed a certain scene was a little too steamy. So, I thought, why not give it a try?  I ended up writing Making Friends, and things just took off from there.


What was the inspiration for your book?
A few years ago, there was a group of neighbours who would spend Friday nights together. We’d have dinner, drink lots of wine. I got to thinking about how we were all such good friends – what if we took it one step further. Voila – my swinging series was born!


What’s the one genre you haven’t written in yet that you’d like to?
I would love to write historical fiction. I was a history major and I just love it.


Are there any genres you won’t read or write in? Why?
There’s not much I won’t read. I’m not much for literary fiction, but I’m not opposed to reading it. I don’t think I’d ever try to write science fiction. I love to read it, but I think the technological descriptions would be beyond me!


What are you up to right now? Do you have any releases planned, or are you still writing?
The second book in the Adults Only series, Room Service will be out next month!  I’m just putting the finishing touches on it, and starting with the third one.  I’m also looking at writing a little short novelette about the characters in my Touch series for a spring release.


Alright, now for some random, fun questions. Favorite color? 
Purple. Or red.


Favorite movie?
I really hate this question because there are so many movies that I love!! Because I’m such a Star Wars fan, I have to say Empire Strikes Back. And I love some of the Marvel movies. But for my favourite, non- franchise movie, I’d say The Italian Job. The remake, the one with Mark Wahlberg. I just love him!


Book that inspired you to become an author?
Stephen King’s On Writing. Every writer should read it. But the person who inspires me is Joss Whedon. I think he’s a brilliant writer.


You have one superpower. What is it?
I’d want to fly, or super-strength.  Can I have both?


You can have dinner with any 3 people, dead, alive, fictitious, etc. Who are they?
Joss Whedon, Stephen King and George Lucas. I would have a list of questions to ask, but I don’t think I’d talk much!


Last question: Which of your characters are you most like and how/why?
I think I’m most like Paige, in my Husbands and Wives series. She’s probably the most normal and the least sexiest, although she’ sexy in her own way!


That’s all from me, thanks for taking the time to stop by!
Thank you so much for having me!!


Don’t forget to visit the other stops on the tour.
