“A Day with Yvette Hines” promised not only intimate author reader discussions, but meals, giveaways, games and prizes. And as I read over the description, I think what caught me most was the personal connection she could make to and with her readers. Now I have been to massive conventions and I have stood in line, sat in the front row, got a book signed, and maybe even hung out for a few minutes with an author…but sitting around with the author, dissecting a book and reviewing one author’s catalog, were nothing I had ever done. I fell in love with the idea and was so thrilled by the event that I wanted to attend myself! While I was not able to, Yvette was as gracious as she was innovative, having extended an invitation for authors to submit swag for her guest bags!
A few months later, I was on Facebook and Yvette had put up pictures from the event. Still fascinated with the possibilities for such a venue, I decided to interview Ms. Yvette Hines after the competition of her event, not solely because it is something that I would love to do in the future but because it might be something other authors are interested in as well: _____________________________________________

Bio: Amazon Best Selling Author. I'm simply Yvette Hines, some people call me SASSE or SASSE Yvette. I'm an erotica author that loves pleasurable hours between the sheets; whether it is a blended tale of interracial lovers, the clandestine bite and wicked passion of paranormal mates, out of this world soul-mates or the sting of a commanding whip against tender flesh. Even better, make my day and toss in two gorgeously, decadent men who only want to pleasure their woman. I write Short and Sexy, Sensual Erotica (SASSE) for ALL women.
