Haylie Harbour, Victoria Andrews and Marley Roberts' Biographies

Haylie Harbour

Haylie contributes the person she is today to the tragic circumstances she faced as a child. She learned at a very young age that life can throw you a curve ball at any moment.

Her motto’s are; “No matter how bad your life may be, someone else has it worse,” and  “Strength,” it’s what gets us through the day.

When she needed an escape she found it through books. She began reading very young and as she got older her taste in books change from sweet and innocent to a little more risqué.

If you saw her today you would probably see her with a book in hand (the dirtier the better). She is an avid reader of anything smut. You name it she’s probably read it.  In more recent years she has acquired a taste for the darker side. She most enjoys it when an author pushes her limits.

She loves the friends she has bonded with through reading and loves lending a helping hand to those in need.

Victoria Andrews

Victoria is a happily married mother of two.  Nothing brings her greater joy than spending time with her family.  Hearing her children laugh is music to her ears. She love's to put on country music and dance around the house with the girls while cleaning, cooking and doing everyday tasks that may seem boring, and mundane to others.

She is often found outside by the pool reading while her girls swim.   Talking to Haylie and Marley on the phone and online or attending their bi- monthly "book club"meeting is her adult time. She say's "I don't know what I'd do without them."  Grinding In Greenville is the first book these three woman have written together, giving y'all a look into what goes on in Tori's seemingly boring life when she winds up with these two crazy women she lovingly call my best friends.

Marley Roberts

Marley Roberts is a free spirited, book junky who loves the male form. The harder the better.

Born and raised on a farm in Woodstock, N.Y. with her father(s), mother, sister, extended family of vagabond, pot smoking, hippy, peace lovers, Marley ran as fast as she could seeking normal at-- COLLEGE??????

What she found was a respite from being judged by small minded asshats, hot ass boys who knew nothing of her past, and two of the best friends a girl could ask for.

Today she spends her day in her penthouse apartment she shares with Haylie. That also serves as Boyfriend Bookstand HEADquarters * wink * reading, hanging out online, and finding new toys (plastic and those of attached to hot, delicious males) to play with and share with her present and future author friends.

Confused? You wont be.

Read my friends and stay beautiful.

An Interview with Haylie Harbour, Victoria Andrews, and Marley Roberts

Thank you for taking the time for the interview. My first question is probably a common one but how is the writing dynamic having three authors for one book?

With the three of us is pretty damn smooth. We know each other in ways best friends do. We know each other secrets, our fears, our pleasures, and hearts. All three of us are aware of our own shortcomings and strengths. We banter back and fourth and yes sometimes argue like family because essentially we are even closer than some families. But we love each other and support each other and get past any squabbles because that’s what best friends do.

As far as the book goes we all have the same vision and the way we have written it, we all have our own voice. None of use are the same and we have embraced that from the day we met and will not stop now. We love that people who have thought it may be confusing with three people having their own part to the story but its not and our reviews have mentions how well it flows. It’s a conversation, a day in the life, a true-ish story about us, how could it not flow. (lol)
You released your first book, Grinding in Greenville this past august what can you tell us about it?

This book isn’t like any others out there. Its three authors, three lead character, three real life best friends journey. Some truth and some fiction. It’s about how our hobby, our guilty pleasure (reading hot books) brings us closer together and gets us through our harsh realities.

The prequel novella to Grinding in Greenville, Kink vs. Class came out shortly after Grinding in Greenville, what inspired you to do a prequel?

We did a prequel so people knew how we came to be. The struggles we over came and to give people who may not want to spend 2.99 on a trio of newbies the opportunity to grab it for .99. Lots of authors have done it so we said hell let’s try it.

Do you have an outline of how many books you want to Boyfriend Book Stand Series? Or are you letting it happen organically as you write them?

We definitely know what is happening in the next two. An outline that will take an organic flow (which is necessary with three authors-personalities) From the beginning it was three. We want to keep it at that but who knows.

Can you tell us anything about your current works in progress?

Hearing it here for the first time *EXCLUSIVE* Book 2 will be released by November . It’s continues right where we leave off in Grinding in Greenville and centers 18th around what becomes of the Morning Grind.

Where did the name Boyfriend Book Stand come?

It came about before we even decided to write. Look at all the social media attention that the hot models, actors, fitness guys get in the book world. We all picture the characters we read about in our heads and they just give more options to (hmm how do we say this appropriately) consider when fantasizing about the hot men in books.  (Fantasy’s may or may not include battery operated paraphernalia).  BFBS also is going to become a business of sorts. I can't tell you anymore about it right now but its pretty hot.

I like looking at a playlist for a book. I saw yours and I liked how the first song on the list is R. Kelly’s Bump n’ Grind. Who’s idea was it to add it to the playlist?

Hailey Harbour did. It’s her inspiration for the scene where she met the very alpha, dominant, (asshole) who banged her stupid in the alley. (Our girls first real orgasm and taste at the darker side of sex. * Fist Bump * get it girl!! )

What has been your favorite part of writing and publishing your books?

Our favorite part of writing has been the ability to see deeper into how each of us felt during certain point in our lives and then giving it a few embellishments to make it hotter. Publishing ? That the fear that readers wouldn’t like it was abolished. Now we need to get the word out that we have arrived (Thanks you Ivy Love)

Who are some of your favorite authors?

Marley- Silvia Day, EL James, CD Reiss, and so many more.
Tori- Stephanie Myers, Jamie McGuire, Marie Forrest
Haylie Harbour- Pepper Winters, Lili St.Germain, Callie Hart and more.

Can you tell readers in 10 words or less why they should read your books?

It’s unique yet brings in what you expect from erotic romance. (Sorry it’s eleven words, but we are kind of rule breakers)

Is there anything you would like to say to your fans and/or readers new to you?

We love to hear what you think. We read every review. Thank you for reading and telling your friends about us.
