Blog Tour: Counsellor (Acquisition #1) by Celia Aaron


Counsellor by Celia Aaron 

(Acquisition #1)
Publication date: September 28th 2015
Genres: Erotica, Romance

In the heart of Louisiana, the most powerful people in the South live behind elegant gates, mossy trees, and pleasant masks. 

Once every ten years, the pretense falls away and a tournament is held to determine who will rule them. The Acquisition is a crucible for the Southern nobility, a love letter written to a time when barbarism was enshrined as law.

Now, Sinclair Vinemont is in the running to claim the prize. There is only one way to win, and he has the key to do it — Stella Rousseau, his Acquisition. To save her father, Stella has agreed to become Sinclair’s slave for one year. Though she is at the mercy of the cold, treacherous Vinemont, Stella will not go willingly into darkness.

As Sinclair and Stella battle against each other and the clock, only one thing is certain: The Acquisition always ends in blood.

How did you meet your deadline and remain sane?

“Sane” is a relative term for me. I write under the pen name Celia Aaron and also write under my real name for a mainstream publisher. So, at the time I was under the deadline I’d put on myself for Counsellor, I was also under contract to have a full length novel to my New York publisher shortly thereafter. Same when I wrote Magnate, the sequel to Counsellor – I had a book due to New York and the deadline to have Magnate out in the same two week period. It was hell on earth. But I got it done.

The key to meeting deadlines, in my personal opinion, is putting immense pressure on yourself at all times. Is it healthy? Nah. Neither is my addiction to chocolate and bread (preferably chocolate surrounded by some sort of bread) but I still have the addiction all the same. So, I just told myself that it had to be done, no matter what. My own expectations are what had me in a chair writing into the wee hours of the night after grueling nine-hour days at my law firm. I still do the same thing. Work all day, feed my rapscallion children, then tell them to buzz off while I write my imaginary friends into life.

I think a more sane approach would be to come up with a writing schedule – which my husband and a writer friend of mine have both tried to implement on me (both failing miserably) – showing what word count you need each day. Seems like it would be helpful if the writer would actually cooperate. I don’t cooperate, so instead, I stick to the “heaps of intense pressure” model. *pops Xanax, tosses back a glass of wine* Cheers!

Hi, I'm Celia. Nice to meet you. Can you keep a secret?

I write smut. Gritty, dirty, delicious smut. This is a secret we can share. I'll do the writing. You do the reading. We have to keep our relationship quiet because I have a highly respectable day job. At night, I become markedly less respectable, as you will see.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my stories. And remember, it's our secret.
