Presenting... Alexandra Christian

I thought I'd start this crazy blog party with a little introduction.  My name is Alexandra Christian, or Lexxx if you like (yes, those three Xs are on purpose), and it's lovely to see you all today.  I'm an author of mostly paranormal erotic romance and horror.  In case you don't know what that means, I write about not-so-nice girls getting it on with out of this world heroes.  Vampires, werewolves, selkies, angels and demons-- and that's just recently!  My first novel, Hellsong, was published just over a year ago with Sugar and Spice Press and ever since, I've been working my sweet Southern ass off to churn out as much sin and debauchery as I can. 

A while ago, I christened myself The Southern Belle from Hell and I think it's a title that suits me well.  I live in a small town in South Carolina-- incidentally, it's the same town I've lived in my entire life.  The rich Southern culture, fried foods and a healthy dose of superstition have colored my personality and my writing style. I have an extremely tolerant husband, also an author, who is the epitome of the Southern male with his buttery thick accent, laidback swagger and simple sweetness that makes women of all ages swoon.  Of course, how we ended up together is a miraculous wonder.  I'm a closeted goth schoolteacher and when we go out, he looks like my chaperone, but it works!

I think I've always been a writer.  As a child, my favorite thing was to create these intricate dramas for me and my friends to act out.  I was reknowned in my neighborhood for playing Pretend.  This led me early in life towards being an actress-- which i pursued for quite some time.  And from time to time, I still long for the stage and make myself available to the local community theater.  In high school and college, I began to dabble in earnest with writing.  I joined some online writers' groups and managed to meet two of my best friends in the world writing fan fiction.  Once I became addicted to the positive feedback, I decided that come Hell or Hiawatha (as my husband says), I was going to be a writer.  It also helped that I had my big sister, who at that time was in the midst of getting her own writing career started, harping on me to write something original.  I finally started taking her advice and a few years ago, I met author Dahlia Rose who encouraged me to try the eBook market.  And the rest, as they say, is history. 

Now I know I said earlier that I was an author of PARANORMAL erotic romance.  So of course my next release has nothing to do with the paranormal.  Unless you count the number of orgasms... It's a contemporary romance short from Rebel Ink Press entitled "Masquerade."  Check out the blurb...

“What's your fantasy?”

Blythe McLachlan had the perfect life until the night he said those three little words that could make or break a relationship. When Blythe tells her husband about her fantasy of a hot menage, he's less than pleased. But when he drops her off at a mysterious masquerade ball, she finds that the boundaries of love can be crossed and rules are made to be broken.

Coming up in my next post, I'll give you a little sample of "Masquerade," but until then, don't forget to leave me a comment or two along with an email address because I will be choosing one lucky commentor to receive a FREE copy of "Masquerade" when it drops on December 17th!  What could be more perfect than curling up on the couch with your new Christmas Kindle and reading some hot menage action?  I can't think of anything better.

Hungry for more Lexxx?  Come find her over at her blog, "The Southern Belle from Hell."
