Interview with Mickey Miller, author of Ten Night Stand
22 Jan 2018
What can you tell us about your new release, Ten Night Stand?
Ten Night Stand is a hot as hell Romance that I wrote with my group. It’s a little bit darker and kinkier than my normal romances, But it still has the heart that I think my readers are looking for. Damien, the main character, is a landlord who has a run-in with one of his tenants after he saves her from an attacker. Things get pretty hot and steamy, but Krista’s ex-boyfriend still obsessively follows Krista around. So Damien has to figure out how to toe the line between new boyfriend and being uber protective of the woman he’s falling in love with as they both deal with some demons of their past.
Ten night stand actually began as a short story. I am fortunate enough to have a really great reader group where I am interactive with tons of my readers. I asked them for suggestions and continued writing the story based in part on those suggestions. for example, in part of the book they wanted to take place at a strip club so I magically made the next chapter take place in a strip club. and there may or may not be A Magic Mike Moment In the book. So basically I wrote the story with my group and eventually once the characters were totally developed I wrote the last part of the story
What or who inspired you to become an author?
That’s a great question. I recently did a podcast episode ( https://soundcloud.com/mickeymillerauthor/mickey-miller-on-how-he-became ) and the entire episode is me answering this question because it’s complex! I used to be more into screenwriting and improv acting, and I wrote a screenplay that was kind of like “Sex and the City” but from a guy’s POV. It still hasn’t been picked up…but I love writing romance and I have found a captive audience! It’s a lot of fun!
You’re hosting a literary dinner party. Which three writers are invited?
Kate Chopin, Ernest Hemingway, and Shakespeare.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
I love that when I write it’s like I’m speaking to thousands of people at once. That’s the power of writing in this day and age–as many people as well like to read your writing, will find you. I’m so grateful to live in the age of technology, where creatives can connect so easily with their audiences.
BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?
What scene in Ten Night Stand was your favorite to write?
The ending scene. It is super duper hot and I think my readers didn’t see it coming.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
“Every Man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.”
