Ocean's Touch

The PensFatales are beyond thrilled to host Denise Townsend here today, on her launch day! Denise is "a fantasy of salt, sea air, and sun-kissed skin. She was born to tell sensual stories that explore female sexuality and strengths."

Her new book, Ocean's Touch, features a lonely widow, a hot artist waiting in the wings, and the sexy selkie who brings them together…in every possible way. And we're giving away one e-ARC to a lucky commenter!

Rachael got the chance to ask Denise a few questions recently:

1. Ocean's Touch is out today! Congratulations. What do you plan on doing to celebrate?

I thought I'd take a walk by the sea. You know, just in case there's someone waiting for me.

2. You're obviously drawn to the sea. So, which coast? Left? East? Ivory?

I was raised near the Third Coast (Chicago), but I definitely prefer the far fringes. If I can't be on the Firth of Forth, of course.

3. What's your favorite thing about being a writer?

The cabana boys. What, didn't you get cabana boys?

[Rachael takes a short break to call her agent and ask where, exactly, her cabana boys are.]

4. What's your least favorite thing about being a writer?

The impossible amounts of money we make. I mean, how do we spend it all? ;-)

[Rachael makes one more quick phone call.]

5. If you were a road sign, what would you say?

Dangerous Curves Ahead.

Amen, sister. Denise Townsend IS all that. Please leave a comment for a chance to win, buy it here, and visit her at her website here.

Congratulations on your book release! Shall we meet up on the Firth of Forth (to help spend the gobs of money from our writing endeavors) to celebrate? ;)
