An Interview With Karen Coté

Today we have the lovely Karen Coté to tell us about her...wait...who are you? 

Folks, we have an interloper here...Lily Delaney from Erotic Deception just stormed into the interview room and shoves poor Karen Coté aside.

I heard you’d invited Karen Coté to a launch party. This is my day! She gets to go out-and-about all the time while I’ve been stuck inside a publishing house.

I waited months and months for a manicure. Do you know the challenges of trying to style hair that’s unruly and needs a trim? I hadn’t been shopping in like…forever and I wasn’t about to show-up in something that was so last year. Now I’ve done all that…I want to plaaay!

So what are these questions. I’m sure you’ll find my answers much more interesting than hers. Let’s see…

Leather or lace?

*snicker* Hellooo. That‘s like choosing between red or pink lipstick right? Love, love love lace, but some occasions just scream leather, don’t you think?

Black or red?

Oh! You just described my favorite Jimmy Choos.

Satin sheets or Egyptian cotton?

Hmmm…now that’s a toughie. Satin can certainly bring a sigh to my lips but 1200 thread count Egyptian? That’s worthy of a groan.

Ocean or mountains?

*chuckle* You know those times when Karen gets writers block? Yeah, I’m sure you do. Well, sometimes my friend, Mr. Muse won’t come out until Karen walks to the beach and yes, Karen’s Muse is a male. It’s great for me as I can flirt outrageously with him to get my way with that pesky sheriff. So definitely ocean.

City life or country life?

City life is fabulous but dipping my toes in a cool lake can send a tingle up my spine. Hmm, moonlight caressing my skin, water lapping against the shore, leaning against those big broad shoulders…Huh? I’m sorry. What was the question?

Hunky heroes or average Joe?


Party life or quiet dinner for two?

Is this another lipstick color question?

Dogs or cats?

Pugs…the chubby ones. Sometimes they act like cats. *snort* Of course, sometimes they act like pigs. Then there’s the bullfrog look. Yep. They’re just like people.

I love pizza with...

No one…coz when that doorbell rings and that pizza guy delivers that pie, I want nobody encroaching on my pepperoni.

I'm always ready for...

Criminal Minds. I swear, if the Chippendales stopped by while I was watching Aaron Hotchner, I’d send them off with their bow ties and cuff links tucked between their nether regions.

When I'm alone, I...

Really? We’re gonna do this here?

You'd never be able to tell, but...

Oh no. Nice try but I star in a Romantic Suspense novel and I’m not gonna... like…just hand you the answers.

If I could ...

Get those handcuffs away from the sheriff, I’d hook him up in my room and teach him some investigative skills.

I can never...

Be anything I’m not because I am what I am.

Uh...thanks for the lovely interview, Lily. Help Karen celebrate the release of her book, Erotic Deception.

  1. Great interview. Uh who should I give my Congrats to? I wouldn't want to get Karen in any trouble. :-) And I've added Erotic Deception to my TBR list.

  2. HOT cover, Karen! Congrats and many best wishes for a wonderful release! :)

  3. Nice to meet you Lily. ;) Can't wait to meet the rest of the crew!

  4. Cute way of doing an interview and I love the character's voice!
    Congratulations Karen!

  5. Why thank you Ms. Chantale! You can congratulate me. Karen gets enough attention from that pesky little dog of hers. Ignores me completely sometimes.

  6. *bows* Thank you, Janice. I told them I could do a better interview than Karen. Your comment proves I was correct.

  7. Thank you Misty but don't say that too loud. Lily's ego is a little inflated today.

  8. Huh? Meet the other crew. Why?

    Nice to meet you too. Karen says some really great things about you and typically I wouldn't listen...but then she showed me a picture of Jag. What girl wouldn't melt over him?

  9. Patti, do you think you could talk to Jet? You know that cocky sheriff I've spent so much time around. Tell him how much you love my voice. Of course, he won't believe you. He doesn't believe anything including that my brother was murdered.

    I'll tell Karen you sent congratulations. You sound nice.

  10. Great interview!!! Loved it!!!

  11. Great blog, a little different it got my attention. And, I love the cover.

  12. Congratulations Lily and Karen. I'm Katie McGowan from Rock Crazy and you think you've been cooped up, Lily! I've spent half of my book in a restraining field. The book may have been released with yours today, but I wasn't. Oh, Rochelle congratulates you, too. Or is she just another voice in my head?

  13. Tessy...I heard about you! You do those two different genre's. FBI and Historical isn't it? Who are you? Jekyll and Hyde? Yes. I can see why Karen likes you so much.

  14. Why thank you Lavada. You sound like you have very good taste. I love the cover too but do you KNOW how long it took me to get sand out of my hair and um...other parts?

  15. And congratulations to you Katie and Rochelle. Don't take any crap from them Katie. Demand your freedom! As for those voices Rochelle? Trust me. They are the reality. Everything outside of your head doesn't exist.

  16. So you think you are free, Lily. Dream on. I'm sure your author has more plans for you. Oh boy! Are you lucky to have Karen as your creator. Another author might not allow you to be so much fun. Congratulations Karen, from the way Lily behaves it seems like you have a winner here! Happy Launch day for Erotic Deceptions.

  17. Shhh...Lily's stepped out for a second and I can finally comment. Thank you Wendy darling. She is a handful. She's not as demanding in the book although Jet, the sheriff might disagree. Wish I could have brought my little elephant guy but he won't go anywhere unless it's your place. I'm--

    Whoops. Here she comes. See ya later and thanks for everything.

  18. Lily, you're as cute and funny as Karen. What a joy to read this interview. Oh by the way, I think I'd love reading Karen's interview too. I don't usually read erotica but this book is a must read for me.

  19. Yes...I've hard about you. Especially YOU. You and Karen are like really tight aren't you? Best Friends or something? I suppose you're okay considering you called me "cute". Okay and I've read your stories so I suppose you're more than okay. However, my story isn't technically erotica. That's just in the title. *palm extended* Talk to the hand...Karen's choice...not mine. It's more mainstream with some steamy sex scenes. My frustration in the limitations are masked with sarcasm.

    Hey...I hear you like cemeteries...I like spooky. Let's talk when I know Karen won't walk in on us. *wink*

  20. I'd love to be Karen's best friend, but she has so many at Muse, I think she can't possibly pick a best one. But I love her dearly. She's done so much for me and Muse. We're pretty tight. She even let me appear on her TV thingy. Okay, steamy scenes I can do. Now I know for sure I have to buy a copy. Another for my to buy list. I love, love, love cemeteries. Even went on a ghost hunt with my kids and grandkids. Great fun. We can talk any time you want. I don't have anything to hide from Karen.

  21. Okay, I'm here. I'm late (what else is new?) but I'm here! Lily, you're fabulous! You and Tess would get along like BFF but of course, Tess is still stuck in Miami Days till April. But you'd love her! And Ro is way more than "okay", you really need to make friends. And she's got some gals in her books you'd love to meet too!

  22. Thanks, Gail. That's sweet. I bet Lily would love Rebecca and probably Kate. Not sure about Christine, she's kind of old, but Jordan is cool. Elizabeth's old enough to be her grandmother, so maybe she wouldn't care much for her either.

  23. Yes Ro and Rumor has it Karen wants you to appear on her TV thingy again soon. I think she's trying to set something up with Gail too but now I'm getting bored because this ISN'T Karen's day. It's mine and you know. I like your friends. Tess, Rebecca and Kate? And don't underestimate those seasoned souls. They're rich in conversation. I think you both should schedule an interview here. I've had tons of fun today, 'course I love attention. I think I heard someone say something about a calendar. You should check into it or ask Karen or something. This is quite a hot place to hang. Don't assume they'll be as fun as me, though. I've already been told I'm cute...

  24. *whispers* Tess, don't let them keep you locked up without hope of escaping. Gail can let you out to do an interview. Good grief. She can also talk about that wonderful fence of hers. You know, Jet and I might need to try out that fence...whoops. Gail's giving me the evil eye on that one. *giggle*

  25. Of course it's your day, darlin'. And your tons of fun. I'd love to do another guest spot with Karen. By the way, she did create you, you know, so you ought to be a little nicer to her.

  26. You tell her RRoRO! *swipes at Lily's hand* Get your hand off my mouth Lily or I'll rewrite your ending.

    Hugs you guys. Thank you so much for stopping by today even if you did have to put up with some attitude.

    Love you

  27. Well, I'm real nervous about the blogs that involve talkin', that Southern accent's gonna get me laughed at but Ro tells me it's really easy and lots of fun so I'll give it a try. Though Tess would really be the girl. I mean, shooting through a door into a parallel world and then kickin' butt and takin' names? I guess actually having to talk on Karen's blog wouldn't give her a problem huh?

  28. Gail doesn't give Karen the evil eye about anything. And the fence is, alas, immortalized now only on her blog, it no longer physically exists. But I'm sure we could find something suitable for a replacement. Here or in Trusca if you want to give the door a try. But it chooses whom it takes, I'm afraid no guarantees on that.

  29. Ahhhh Gail. I love it already. Get back Lily. These are my friends too. You can't hog them all day. Tess sounds great. We certainly need to give her a platform. What about here? I'll bet Tess would do a kick-butt interview. I could arrange it. Might as well start getting her name out there.

  30. And of course Karen's Chaise Lounge where Lily is always running in and trying to steal the show. Tess sounds like she can handle those types of situations easily.

  31. Great interview, er... Lily! Thanks for sharing! Now be a good girl and let Karen come to the keyboard for a minute.

    Karen, I can't wait to read! Thanks for a great first interview!

  32. I think we should definitely get those girls together!

  33. Be a good girl, Cat? Is that another interview question? Dahling, I'm very good. Ouch. Did you just pinch me?

    Sorry Lily. Thank you Cat. It's an absolute pleasure to see you here.

  34. Wonderful Gail. We'll talk when you-know-who isn't listening in. Hugs dear friend and thank you so much for sharing in my celebration.

  35. Great to meet you Lily. Karen, what a wonderful day for you both. Hope you realise the combination makes for a captivating creative team. Lily, you can't survive without Karen's talent, so enjoy your freedom. I am sure it will be long lived.
    Erotic Deception, complete with Jet, is a sure fired winner. From the super cover to the blurb with hooks that catch and hold this book feels like a MUST read.
    Karen, I raise my glass to you and Lily, may your books never go out of print. Cheers!!

  36. Lady Rosalie, wait... stop it Lily. She's my friend.

    *snort* Did you see what she wrote? She likes me better.

    I need to write in some glasses for you Lily because she did NOT say that. She said YOU can't survive without my talent. Now go sit down.

    Now let's try this again. Lady Rosalie, thank you so much. You are a very special individual and near and dear to my heart. I--


    Lily, I'm warning you...

    Just sayin'

    *deep breath* Anyway Lady Rosalie, thank you so much. I cherish your humor and friendship and I'm grateful for the comments. Big hugs.

    Ah come-on. Give her a smoochie and let's go. I'm hungry.

    Brother...Goodnight all.

  37. LOL! What a coup. This has been a good turn out for the debut book. Many happy sales, Karen. I know people will fall in love with this characters. How could they not? Congratulations.
