Blog Tour: Trouble Comes in Threes by M.A. Church

Author Bio:

M.A. Church is a true Southern belle who spent many years in the elementary education sector. Now she spends her days lost in fantasy worlds, arguing with hardheaded aliens on far-off planets, herding her numerous shifters, or trying to tempt her country boys away from their fishing poles. It’s a full time job, but hey, someone’s gotta do it!

When not writing, she’s exploring the latest M/M novel to hit the market, watching her beloved Steelers, or sitting glued to HGTV. That’s if she’s not on the back porch tending to the demanding wildlife around the pond in the backyard. The ducks are very outspoken. She’s married to her high school sweetheart, and they have two children.

She was a finalist in the Rainbow awards for 2013.

A snowstorm in the South—on New Year’s Eve—is a perfect recipe for a catastrophe. After two soul-crushing bad breaks, Kirk’s waiting for disaster number three to strike when naturally, two stray cats arrive on his doorstep during the storm and decide to make themselves at home. Tenderhearted Kirk lets them stay even though there’s something decidedly odd about his overly friendly felines.

Out of the punishing weather, and full of tuna, Dolf and Tal are happy to be snug in Kirk’s house. But then their human goes outside for firewood and suffers a nasty fall that leaves him unconscious. Now the two cats have no choice but to reveal themselves.

Kirk wakes up to find the two kitties are actually Dolf and Tal. They’re cat shifters—and his destined mates. Being part of a feline threesome is enough for Kirk to grapple with, but soon he learns they come from a clowder that doesn’t believe humans and shifters should mix. Kirk knew those two cats would be trouble. Little does he know the real trouble lies ahead.

Interview Questions:

1. What is your writing process?
I get up, fix me a Coke, and have breakfast. Kitty-Kitty head butts me a few times until we check out his food bowl. While we discuss the situation, I look at my cell and check my email. If there’s nothing pressing, I might watch the weather right quick. If it’s not raining, I’ll feed the ducks and fill up the birdfeeders. Talk to Kitty some more.
About two hours later, I turn on the laptop, lol, and get to work.

2. What's the best thing you've learned since you became a published author?
That I’m not alone. *Laugh* What I mean is there are folks out there with characters talking to them all the time, and that’s usual! In fact, they worry when the characters *stop* talking, lol. How many times has a character of mine hijacked my plot… then I get on FB only to see another author complaining about the same thing! That shows me I’m not the only one dealing with squirrely characters. *wink*

3. Are your characters based on real life people?
Not really. I usually have an idea of what the character looks like, and then I go searching for a likeness. Small things might not match, but that’s okay. I just need the visual reference. But I do that with the setting too. If there’s a bar, I go looking for pics of bars. If it’s a bedroom… same deal.
I looked for a certain type of house for the guys in Trouble Comes in Threes, had millions of cat pictures, had pics of home garages that Kirk might work out of, pictures of cats playing in the snow… LOL. Did I mention I’m visual???

4. Where do you get your ideas from?
Oh goodness, everywhere and everything. Music, TV, taking a walk, listening to my kids, talking to friends, watching the cat acting like a cat, staring off into space, lol. I’m never short of ideas to write about. It’s a lack of *time* that’s the problem, lol. I’ve said often there needs to be two of me!

5. What are you working on now?
The Harvest: Journey’s End is due out in January. I’m self-pubbing that. Also, in April, To Touch the Sky is due out from Dreamspinner. It’s book two in the Leap of Faith series. (Shadows in the Night was book one.)
I’m also working on a scifi M/M novel called In Enemy Hands, along with working on the book after Trouble Comes in Threes. That one’s called Behind the Eight Ball. J

Dolf picked out the saw he wanted, then followed Tal to another aisle. His mate pointed out the different kinds, but Tal’s words had rapidly faded into a meaningless buzz. There, on the air currents in the store, was the sweetest scent. It was light and flowery, reminding him of honeysuckle. He breathed deeply, taking the scent into himself. His cock hardened immediately and his head spun. A yowl threatened to escape.

That scent… that scent was seductive and alluring. It spoke to him, whispering things that made him need. His cat paced frantically in his mind, tail slashing madly. The need to pounce, to sink his canines in and drink that sweet, life-giving blood of his…. His gums tingled and saliva flooded his mouth.

He swallowed, then swallowed again as his head pounded, his heart rate spiking as one thought screamed through his mind: Mate! Another mate! Where was that scent coming from? Or who? And by the goddess, why? He already had a mate. What was their goddess thinking, giving him another? But he couldn’t ignore the reaction. It had been the same when he met Tal.
