An Interview with Lee Brazil and he fills us in on some of his first times…

by on September 6, 2012

I had a chance to sit down with a wonderful author. I also want to add he was a new author to me up until a about a month ago but after I read the blurb to Saints Curse. Let me tell you I was hooked. Lee is a gifted writer and I am so exited to have him join us on Luscious Literaries. Check out the interview and we are in luck there is also an excerpt from his new book, Risking It All, I don’t think you want to miss.

1. What inspired you write your first completed work?Well, I was driving home from a rather long trip, and the radio in my rental car could only pick up Christian rock stations. The story formed in my head, and wouldn’t leave, so when I got home I purged it on the computer.

2. Tell us about the first time you had a story published? How did that feel?
 Breathless Press published my first novella, Keeping House, It felt like an amazing affirmation that, hey, what I was spending my time doing really was worthwhile.
3. Was your first review favorable or critical? What did you learn from it?
First review was a three star, very positive. I learned right then that not all people are going to like your work, and even those who like it aren’t going to give you top ratings.
4. What are some of the challenges you face as a writer?
 Focus. I have trouble focusing on what needs to be done, I’ll follow a thread that interests me and lose track of what I meant ot do in a story.
5. Do you have a favorite out of the books you have written?
 I am very partial to Telling the Truth.
6. What is your motto for your writing?
 IF at first you don’t succeed, take a few days off and try again.
7. When reading a book, what tells you it’s going to be a “good story”?
Characters. I have to fall in love with the characters or the story is a complete waste on me. I’m not good at technical details, and I don’t much care if they catch the killer. I just want to like the two guys who’re falling in love.
Blurb ~ Risking It All
After nearly a year, Bastian Grey is growing discontent with the lack of intimacy in his relationship with Rick Claremont. Can an adopted cat be the key to a real relationship?
Fire fighter Sebastian Grey has finally gotten what he’s wanted since he was sixteen: Rick Claremont in his bed.  Only now he wants more. Convincing cautious Rick that loving him is a safe bet seems impossible.
Rick Claremont grew up in a hurry and experienced danger and loss early. He’s not sure risking himself on Sebastian is a viable option. The man is gorgeous and the sex is amazing, but Sebastian’s whole life is about taking chances. He throws himself off mountains for fun and runs into burning buildings for work. How can Rick trust this risk taker with his battered heart?
Will the advent of a cat and a corpse into their relationship give Bastian the entrée to Rick’s heart as well as his bed?
Excerpt ~ Risking It All
“Turn over.” Rick’s raspy voice caressed his lips before he drew away to kneel beside Bastian.
“I want to gaze into your eyes while you make love to me,” Bastian protested. Rick avoided intimacy whenever and however he could. Rick’s eyes narrowed at the words make love, but he didn’t respond, no doubt choosing to ignore the comment. Nevertheless, his slender, strong hands guided Bastian onto his side, stroked gently down his spine. Bastian relaxed. At least like this he could see Rick’s face, could watch his eyes darken, his cheeks flush.
Rick pressed a warm, soft kiss at his nape, and Bastian moaned softly. Rick could call it fucking but there was too much gentleness, too much caring in his touch, in the brush of his lips, to be anything other than affection and lovemaking.
The smaller man brushed his fingers down, tracing the muscles of Bastian’s back, teasing him into relaxing, coaxing him into position. Bastian drew his knee up to the side, giving Rick access to his body. A cap snicked and a slick, gentle finger probed between his cheeks, massaging gently at the opening there. Bastian sighed, pushing into the touch. He needed that touch so much. It shocked him sometimes how much he relied on these “dates” with Rick.
“Good idea.” Rick murmured against his spine.
“Uh?” His body focused on the pleasure of Rick’s touch, on the heat of his breath whispering across his skin, stirring the fine hairs. The furor of his heartbeat in his ears, the loud rush of blood nearly drowned the words out.
“Meeting at this place today.” This place meant the hotel closest to Arden ‘s office complex, a small, discreet establishment in the business district that probably catered to more than its share of nooners and cheating spouses.
