Lorraine Loveit lives in Perth, Western Australia with her family and two dogs.

She began writing stories in high school and has never tired of putting pen to paper. These days she has fun creating interesting characters for her sexy novels.

Apart from watching rom/coms, her favourite pastime is reading, especially regency bodice-rippers. In fact, she has a regency novel on the back-burner, just waiting for her to continue with the story.

When on holidays Lorraine enjoys camping with her family.

Marketing, more than reviews, is what I feel is the key to success. Even well-known authors still market their work rather than rely on their name alone to generate sales.

I don't get frustrated about not having many reviews - but I'm delighted when I read a new one.

Thanks for the question Ed :)(less)

Thanks for your question.

With regard to writing, my biggest battle has been trying to find the time to write. With my busy lifestyle (work/family) I found myself getting up early and staying up late just to get some writing done.

Publishing is the easy part - getting readers to know you’re published is the hard part. Goodreads is great, but unfortunately people are more interested in getting an ARC than paying for a copy. I have found reading/review blogs and Facebook pages to be the best avenue to sales.

Regards, Lorraine(less)

“He headed for the stairs, pulling me along behind him. He was forceful, yet took the steps at a slow pace so I did not stumble. It was an overwhelming experience, heightened by the fact he didn’t speak, nor once look back at me.”
Lorraine Loveit, Bounce Down - 1st Quarter: Start of Play

“He forced my lips apart and as he thrust his tongue deep, I vaguely wondered how it would feel between my legs. The power of his savage assault momentarily stunned me, before I was caught up in the passionate embrace and returned his deep, mind-blowing kiss. I had never experienced a kiss like that before. In fact, kiss was too mild a word for what we were doing.

I felt light headed and questioned how long I could go without breathing. Brendon must have also reached his limit, as he soon broke contact and hauled in a ragged breath. I stared into his eyes and noticed their colour had changed to a darker blue, almost like the ocean.

I had enough time to take another breath before he claimed my mouth once more. I knew my lips would be bruised and swollen but I didn’t care. I wanted to savour whatever attention he chose to give me.

Eventually he relented and resting his forehead against mine, closed his eyes as he took another breath. My own breathing was shallow and rapid, like I had been running. On opening his eyes he held my gaze for a long moment, as though he was contemplating his next move.”

Lorraine Loveit, Bounce Down - 1st Quarter: Start of Play

“His head turns fractionally toward me, his eyes darkest slate. I bite my lip.
“Oh, fuck the paperwork,” he growls. He lunges at me, pushing me against the wall of the elevator. Before I know it, he’s got both of my hands in one of his in a vice-like grip above my head, and he’s pinning me to the wall using his hips. Holy shit. His other hand grabs my ponytail and yanks down, bringing my face up, and his lips are on mine. It’s only just not painful. I moan into his mouth, giving his tongue an opening. He takes full advantage, his tongue expertly exploring my mouth. I have never been kissed like this.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey

“There's a very fine line between pleasure and pain. They are two sides of the same coin, one not existing without the other.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey

“So you’ll get your kicks by exerting your will over me.”
“It’s about gaining your trust and your respect, so you’ll let me exert my will over you. I will gain a great deal of pleasure, joy, even in your submission. The more you submit, the greater my joy – it’s a very simple equation.”
“Okay, and what do I get out of this?”
He shrugs and looks almost apologetic.
“Me,” he says simply.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey

“I want my world to start and end with you.”
E.L. James , Fifty Shades of Grey
