Interview with Kaye Skellington

Published 2013-09-11.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are everything to me! I LOVE love love how they respond to certain phrases or words I use. And I really enjoy their inspiring suggestions, how they encourage me to keep going, and give me purpose!
Do you ever get attached to your characters?
Oh completely! I 'feel' what they feel, I know what they're thinking, how they'll react to a specific setting. And when something bad happens to them that feels unjust, I feel it deeply. If something good happens, I feel that too. I love when some innocent finds themselves in an intoxicating and irresistible situation. I love experiencing first times with my characters!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Mmm, sort of. The first erotic story I wrote and published was actually a poem about a rose used in nefarious and titillating ways...
How do you approach cover design?
I try to make my own covers. I don't want to purchase photos of other people I don't 'know' the way I know my characters. I don't always make the best covers but it's a learning process I'm totally enjoying.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Creating a series seems to really get people going. I like doing that, getting people invested in characters and having the feeling that someone out there is waiting for the next installment!
What are you working on next?
Right now I'm working on an awesome sexy series called "Her Dirty Panties". It's about a decadent young girl coming to maturity in a foster home, who realizes the power of a woman's wiles. And of course, it's about her panties ;) Nova Digital Art already made me THREE covers for it. So I HAVE to write three stories!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My computer is right next to my bed. It calls to me. And I can't wait every morning to rise before the sun and start typing away!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am also a prolific creator of adult erotic artwork. I love the female body, love sexuality and sensuality, and love artwork. Some would say my work is a bit too artsy, but that just means they aren't looking beyond the breasts! It's the expression on the face, the way the hair flows, the way a hand sits on a hip or on sternum. I love bodies!
Do you ever feel your writing is overboard or too risque?
No, I really don't. There are a lot of topics out there that nobody touches on, and that's perfectly fine by me. But there are things I like to touch on, to write about, that I find very sexy and interesting, that maybe my readers haven't seen in stories before. I like the taboo, I like the forbidden, I like the things we're not supposed to like, the things we're told not to want. And I like sharing them with my readers!
What has it meant to you, being able to publish via Smashwords?
Smashwords has made the publishing process easy for me, across the board. Not only did they help me publish here; they also helped me publish elsewhere! By following their comprehensive guide, I was able to prepare my books for other stores too. That really meant a lot to me, that they weren't restricting their process to apply only to themselves. I love their style guide!
What are you wearing, right now?
I'm wearing black yoga pants, a blank tanktop with spaghetti straps, and pink panties with a cupcake on them!
