The House of Elyot

Deep Indigo

Posted on: April 27, 2011

Can it really be the last week of the Noble Romance Authors Blog Tour? So many prizes given, new friends made and interesting conversations had – but next week it will all be over *sob*.

But – until then – let’s enjoy our swan song, and a wonderful interview with Indigo Skye, in her second guest appearance on my blog. She’s welcome any time – Indigo gives great interview!


1. Welcome to the blog – can you tell me a little bit about how you came to be a Noble author?

It all started with Scarlet! I got to know the author Keta Diablo through her posts on the Scarlet forum. She works with Noble Romance, as well as several other publishing houses, and has been very supportive and encouraging. We corresponded, and she granted me an exclusive interview on my blog to help promote her book, Where the Rain is Made. Keta read one of my short stories, “Cherry-Boy,” and passed it on to Jill Noble. This got my foot in the door-without an agent-and I submitted my manuscript for Her Captive Muse soon after. Keta was instrumental in helping me ready my manuscript for publication. She and the editors at Noble did a fantastic job of helping me make my story the best it could be.

2. My theme for 2011 is music. Is music important to you in your life and your writing?

My Muses love to listen to the blues. The words flow better when there’s music in the background. Music makes its way into my stories and my dreams.

3. Do you have a song that sums up the situation or relationships of any of your characters? (feel free to post if there are no copyright restrictions)

I think the song that sums up Brendan Delaney’s relationship with Morgan Roan is “Sweet Dreams,” by the Eurythmics. Annie Lennox’s vocals are amazing, and the lyrics really resonate with Brendan’s situation. “Some of them want to abuse you/Some of them want to be abused…”
Oh, that’s a big favourite of mine too, along with Love is a Stranger.

4. Do you listen to music while you write? Or have you ever been inspired by a piece of music to write a story?

I enjoy listening to all types of music. When I’m editing or working furiously to meet a deadline, I want something with a driving beat, so I’ll spin punk, rap, or hip-hop. I’m obsessed with The Stooges’ album, Fun House- a little Iggy Pop is better than a shot of espresso. If I’m working on a new creative project, I want something mellow in the background, so blues or jazz suits my mood when I’m in The Zone. I love Robert Johnson’s voice- I can always work with him around.

5. What songs do you consider especially romantic?
“Wish You Were Here,” by Pink Floyd. “Lilac Wine,” by Nina Simone.

6. What songs get you in a sexy mood?
Fiona Apple never fails to turn me on. She has such a sexy, intense voice, and her music is amazing. I’m currently spinning a bootleg Morphine CD that was recorded at a Detroit show- perfect for slow, sweet love-making on a Sunday morning! Nine Inch Nails’ Downward Spiral is a great album to get me in the mood for something kinky and wild.
Mmm, Nine Inch Nails…You have great taste, Indigo!

Here a little bit more about Ms Skye and her good works:

Indigo Skye is a writer and photographer living in the American Southwest. Her first novel, Her Captive Muse, was released by Noble Romance Publishers in January. Her work has been widely published online. Last fall, her short story “True Confession” was published in the anthology Uniform Behavior. A full list of her published works is available on her blog, Indigo Skye: Ink and Art- http://indigoskyeinkandart.blogspot.com.

When Brendan Delaney answered an ad for an artist’s model, he was looking for an easy way to earn some extra cash. But Morgan Roan wanted more than just a model. Soon, Brendan finds himself caught in a web of deception and desire, lust and betrayal—her captive muse. What price pleasure?
