Shayla’s Guest of the Month: Carly Phillips

I’m really excited to kick off my 2019 guest of the month feature with, Carly Phillips! We both started in the publishing industry at roughly the same time. She’s smart, funny, and hardworking. Carly is both traditionally and independently published and succeeded at every turn.

Please welcome Carly Phillips…

Name a movie you’ve seen at least five times and why it’s a favorite.  

Saving Silverman because I have a sick sense of humor and I love Neil Diamond.

Caffeine of choice: tea, coffee, or soda? 

Soda – Diet Coke preferably

What does your work space look like?

In theory I have an office with a desk (I don’t use) and an ergonomic recliner chair (I rarely use). I end up writing in bed and hurting my back and shoulders. Then I go use the chair in the office. The pics are of the dogs on the bed while I’m working and the chair I’m supposed to work in.








Where is your bucket-list vacation? 

What is something you cherish for its sentimental value?

I have a corner of my office with things that belonged to people I’ve loved and lost – my dad’s hat on a doll that was my grandmother’s and my dog, Buddy’s leash. I also have my dad’s wedding ring JPart of my office pictures have that corner with those things.

Plotter or panster and why?

It’s evolved and changed over the course of my career. I used to be a pantser, then a loose plotter, now I need to plot more tightly. My brain doesn’t work as well as it used to on the fly.

What music are you listening to? Do you play it while you write?

I keep the television on, no music. I watch soap operas (General Hospital and Days of Our Lives, and the news or things from Good Morning America to Kelly and Ryan, then flip to NBC and back to ABC for the later part of the day. I’m a creature of habit. I’ll also watch Law and Order SVU when nothing else is on, or Say Yes to the Dress.

What’s your current release?

I’m so excited for my next release. It’s so hot,sexy and emotional!

Take Me Again, the first in my new Knight Brother’s series released on January 22, 2019

He’s alpha, he’s sexy, and he’s sure he’s got life in his hands … Until Ashley Easton returns, wanting nothing to do with the playboy who broke her heart.  

Sebastian Knight is a closer. Be it a business deal or the woman of his choice, everything he wants is his for the taking. Sexy and irresistible, a wink, a smile, or a handshake always seals the deal. Until Ashley returns at the worst possible time, and everything unravels around him. 

The Ashley who returns is sassy and sexy–everything Sebastian craves and he wants a second chance. Despite her reluctance, his sex appeal makes it harder and harder to keep him at arm’s length.

Sebastian might have a talent for sealing the deal, but Ashley is no longer easily charmed. This time he’s going to have to work to win.

A Standalone Romance

Last but not least, what’s YOUR Shayla Black kiss?

Lots of Tongue with Cutter Bryan – woo hoo!
