Trouble Comes in Threes by M.A. Church - Blog Tour with Author interview and giveaway

Book Name: Trouble Comes in Threes
Author Name: M.A. Church
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Paul Richmond


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.

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.

Interview with author M.A. Church

Wicked Faerie's: What is your favorite genre in M/M to write? Why?

M.A. Church:  Hmm, I’d have to say it’s a toss-up between sci-fi and paranormal. For scifi, the draw is the futuristic settings, sciences, and technology. The idea of traveling in a spaceship to other worlds fascinates me. With paranormal, it’s taking established sciences and twisting them.

Then there’s the world building that goes with both. OMG, creating a brand new culture is hard work, but such a joy as it develops.

Wicked Faerie's: Do you dictate the flow of your stories or are the characters steering the direction of the story?

M.A. Church: Weeeeel, lol. You know what they say about the best laid plans lol. I start with an outline, and as I write, it grows. We’re sailing along, things are going good… then BAM!

LOL. Let the crying begin. And it’s usually me doing the crying. I can’t tell you how many times a character has ambushed me and changed the plot. *Shrug* I’ve learned to just go with it, lol.

That, and a good stiff drink, helps. ;) 

Wicked Faerie's: Was there one particular character that stood out to you while writing ‘Trouble Comes in Threes’?

M.A. Church:  I think it would be Kirk. Tal is the cutie, and Dolf is the strong one. Kirk… well, he’s the underdog. He’s had everything but the kitchen sink thrown at him, and he just refuses to give up. He can be a little mouthy and snarly, but he’d give you the shirt off his back.

Wicked Faerie's: Do you use real actors/people in order to get the perfect look for your characters or stick with your own imagination?

M.A. Church:  I usually have a character in mind, and then I go searching for a picture that’s similar. I’m very visual, so I need that.  The pic may not be exactly what I had in mind, but it’s usually close. I’ve also had artwork done on characters.

I do the same for their surroundings, like their home, their business, what they drive… things like that. It’s all about building a world. The more I can see it, the more real it is to me. And the more real I can make it for the reader.

Wicked Faerie's: Is there a genre in M/M that you’d like to write in but haven’t yet? Why or why not?

M.A. Church: Probably high fantasy. There’s a history that comes with it, and I’m not familiar enough with the rules so I can break them, lol. Following the rules is fine, but I’m more about coloring outside the lines.
