Disordered Box Set Release Day Blitz

Meet Dr. Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist.
Sure, the life of a sexy vampire or alpha shifter is all fabulous fur and fangs on T.V., but what happens when you lose your bite? Who do you call when you’re a leprechaun with dissociative identity disorder or a blood-phobic vampire who’s undead and underfed? You call Dr. Matilda Schmidt, of course! With the help of her delicious demigod bounty hunter and hot hit man lover, there’s no case too desperate for the good doctor to handle—for a reasonable hourly fee.

 

 

I like gravy. 
This has nothing to do with the rest of my bio, but I thought you ought to know. 
About the writing thing…
I wrote my first play when I was six and made my brothers perform it for my parents. I charged gum wrappers for admission (a steal, in my opinion, considering I had handed out the gum wrappers ahead of time). While I seriously doubt you’ll be seeing any of my formative work on Broadway anytime soon, I can credit these early experiments with the first of many important lessons I learned about writing: no matter how brilliant your manuscript is, some kid can go streaking butt-ass nekkid across the living room, and totally undermine your vision.
Everyone watches the naked kid because running across the living room with your cheeks flapping in the breeze is friggin’ hilarious. 
Cue the lightbulb moment. People like funny stuff!
I never quite gave up on the writing thing, even as I tried my hand at being a dusty academic turned Executive Assistant (they paid me to nag! How cool is that?), but in those quiet moments when expense reports had been filed and to-do items checked off, the funny people in my head kept talking to me. 
Yes, I know they have medication for that. It’s called vodka.
Since they discourage drinking at work, I started writing instead. What came out was an amalgamation (vocabulary!) of all the things I love: funny stuff, art, psychology, food, people, and paranormal critters!
Et voila! The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist were born.
When I’m not sitting in my office watching cat videos and pretending to write, I like cooking, knitting (badly), and reading anything that makes me laugh (like my bank statements).
I live in Colorado with my brilliant husband and three surly cats.

About the book

When you can’t grin and bear it…

Paranormal Psychologist, Matilda Schmidt is sick of secrets. But when her troubled mother falls into dangerous hands, she must enlist the help of the two men who may be hiding the most: the hot-bodied demigod who’s suddenly tight-lipped about his current client, and the delicious hit man who’s been concealing much more than a gun in his pocket.

Faced with the destruction of her tidy life at the paws of three rowdy werebears, and protected only by an immortal egg on the edge, Matilda will have to come riding to her own rescue, or risk a life that’s anything but happily ever after.

Unbearable teaser 3

 

Excerpt

“What are you wearing?” Crixus’s voice was clear and unsullied by sleep—a direct contrast to my own, which hovered right at the edge of ‘do not operate heavy machinery.’ He had answered on the second ring, a good sign he wasn’t plowing Goldilocks like a spring field, or so I told myself.

“My raincoat and galoshes. But I’m taking them off as we speak.” My cell phone, thankfully, like the bed I settled onto cross-legged—had remained mostly dry.

“Anything under the raincoat?”

“Save it,” I said. “I need your magic.”

“Now you’re talking.” The smile in his voice was as radiant as the sun reaching gilded fingers into the gray dawn.

“Not that kind of magic. So far tonight, my apartment has been home to three bears, eight firemen, and one immortal egg. I’m in no mood.” Twice now, I had depended upon Crixus to undo the damage wrought upon my apartment and office by his retinue of squirrely supernatural guests. It was the one power the demigod possessed I wouldn’t mind stealing for myself.

That, and the spontaneous orgasms.

“And you didn’t invite me?”

“Since when did you need an invitation?” Crixus’s propensity to pop into my life at his leisure had been a contention of mine since we first met. My office, my car, even my bedroom, he invaded with the carefree indifference of a child hopping rides at the amusement park. And still, he managed to be frequently unavailable when I needed him.

“If I could be there, I would.” His voice lacked its usual cocktail of arrogance and caprice. He almost sounded earnest.

Unbearable Teaser final

Interview

 It is my pleasure to welcome Cynthia St. Aubin, author of Unbearable – Book 4, The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist, to Room With Books.

What do you do when you are not writing?

Usually one of three things:

1. Standing in front of my fridge eating cheese;

2. Watching Golden Girls or Cupcake Wars; or

3. Procrastinating by making bookmarks.

Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?

I love making people laugh. Janet Evanovich has been one of my absolute favorites since I was old enough to sneak the books into my mom’s pile at the library.

Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?

I spent about two years querying every single agent in the entire universe with a three-book series I had already written. After amassing enough very polite rejection letters to wallpaper the Taj Mahal, I decided to give Indie publishing a try. Not only was that a great avenue for discovering that there seemed to be plenty of readers interested in the kind of sexy, snarky, wacky sort of paranormal stories that I write, it also won me the attention of a lovely agent, who I’m now working with on traditionally publishing my full-length series.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

The ability to eat whatever I want while miraculously fitting into my skinny jeans.

What was your first job?

My official title was Seasonal Drink Girl at Chic Fil-a. I basically filled all the drink orders for the holiday crowds at the mall. But get this…on my lunch breaks, they handed me a pie plate and told me I could fill it with all the nuggets and waffle fries I could eat! I’m pretty sure my blood type was Polynesian sauce for about a year.

What types of books do you write?

I write sexy paranormal romance and mystery with an extra helping of funny.

Who’s your main audience?

Anyone who likes to laugh!

Out of all of your characters, which is your favorite?

Ooooh. Now that’s a toughie. My heroines tend to be funny, snarky, and quirky as hell, so they’re incredibly fun for me to write. But I do have a weakness for my men. I’ve had entirely too much fun writing the two men vying for my current heroine’s attention. Crixus—a former Roman gladiator and demigod who just can’t stay away from the ladies, and Liam—a Las Vegas mob hit man who’s very talented with his…er, weapon. 😉

What does your writing schedule look like?

I’m a night owl, for sure. During the day, I take care of all the things required of most adults (cleaning, bills, errands, cartwheels…just kidding. I can’t do a cartwheel to save my life), and at night, I spend several hours chained to my laptop playing with my imaginary friends.

Do you use your OWN experiences?

Absolutely! I’ve often been known to say “I could absolutely make this stuff up, but luckily, I don’t have to.” Being the socially awkward, perpetually trouble-attracting nerd I am, I manage to get myself into all kinds of scrapes that make good book fodder. Example: I am what I like to call “spa-wkward.” I once managed to pull a muscle while on the massage table because the therapist told me to turn, and I hadn’t planned which way I was going to go, so I panicked and got my own arm caught under me. Yep. I’m that cool.

Was it easy to pick the title for your book?

Picking the titles is one of my favorite parts about writing. It’s writing the actual books that can be a little challenging. 🙂

If you could pick one profession other than author, what would you choose?

So, I have a totally useless master’s degree in Art History. I had visions of teaching college courses and taking students on study abroad trips to see all the art I loved. Art will always be one of my first passions, and I’d still love to get my PhD someday.

What are you currently working on?

Right now, I am working on book six in the Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist series—Undeadly. This one will be a fun, Halloween-themed romp that, among other things, features a hematophobic (afraid of blood) vampire, a werewolf with ED, and costume party where someone spikes the punch with ambrosia.

Fun Facts

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? ALL OF THEM.

Night owl, or early bird? Night owl!

Red, or white wine? Chocolate milk. Preferably with a swirly straw.

Roller Coasters or Water Rides? Water rides, all the way. Roller coasters become accidental water rides for me on account of I am TERRIFIED of heights.

Swimming in the ocean or a pool? Ocean. Pools just remind me too much of a people soup.

Walking or fitness club? Doughnuts. 😀

Any last words?

Chupacabra. That’s always a fun word to say. Also, I love stalkers! Please feel free to track me down at any of the places below. Or you could follow the trail of doughnut crumbs. Probably that would lead you to the right place. J

Unlovable (#1)

cynthiastaubin_unlovableIt isn’t every day a sexy demigod throws a pissed-off Cupid onto psychologist Matilda Schmidt’s couch and informs her the fate of the world depends on her ability to get him off his diapered ass and back to helping people fall in love.

Just when Matilda convinces herself she’s not hallucinating, in walks a Vegas hit man with a big gun and a bigger threat: pay back the million dollars she owes a notorious casino mogul, or wind up as fish food in Lake Mead.

Rocketing across country with a gun to her head, Matilda has a dysfunctional love-god in her laptop bag, a million dollar debt she has no knowledge of, and must convince the seductive hit man he’s snatched the wrong woman before he convinces her he might be the right man—for a night.

Can Matilda stay alive long enough to keep love from becoming history?

 

Unlucky (#2)

cynthiastaubin_unluckyAccused of stealing gold from an infamous Irish street gang, Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt will die in exactly five days if she doesn’t cough it up—guilty or not. With minutes ticking away and her office overrun by a leprechaun who’s loopier than he is lucky, Matilda makes a deal with a demigod—give him one night in her bed and he’ll help her locate the missing gold.

But when Matilda’s recent one-night stand shows up with inside information about the heist she’s being framed for, she finds herself caught between a hit man and a demigod both offering to protect her—if they don’t kill each other first.

If Matilda’s luck doesn’t change soon, death might be the only thing waiting for her at the end of the rainbow

 

 

Unhoppy (#3)

cynthiastaubin_unhoppyWhen there’s not a hop in hell…

The day is going to hell in a hurry for Paranormal Psychologist Matilda Schmidt, and that’s *before* a suicidal Easter bunny shows up for treatment.

When pictures surface of Matilda caught in the middle of a hit man-Cupid sandwich, she lands in the oily grip of a ruthless blackmailer, whose motives are as ugly as his mustache. Now Matilda must betray the trust of someone who cares for her to meet the blackmailer’s demands, or she can kiss her reputation, her practice, and even her freedom goodbye. But blackmail is only the beginning when the immortal mystery-client brought to her couch by a seductive demigod causes Matilda to fling caution—along with her panties—to the wind.

Hunted by two jealous goddesses who would gladly use her intestines to lace up their strappy sandals—and with her full-time hit man sometimes lover nowhere to be found—Matilda will have to save herself, or the world will be up River Styx without a paddle

EXCERPT FROM UNLOVABLE (#1)

Liam’s hands clenched into fists at his sides. “And I would like to take this opportunity to tell Cupid to put down the cigar before I shove my foot so far up his ass he’ll be coughing up diaper fluff.”

Ice crystalized in Cupid’s blue eyes. “It’s a loincloth.”

“Now, Cupid,” I interrupted, “what Liam means is he would appreciate it if—”

“Last time I checked,” Liam said, casting a meaningful glance down at his towel, and affording me the opportunity to do the same, “loin cloths were for covering dicks. Not wee-wees.”
