Interview with Scott Harrison

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first erotic story I ever read was in Penthouse Letters. I remember that it was about a girl at a frat party where she got high and ended up having sex with lots of guys. They also shaved her pussy, which was pretty progressive for a story in the 80s!
How do you approach cover design?
I searched long and hard for a photo that would embody the spirit of my story, I didn't find one, so I Photoshopped one that I found. Covers have to give an idea of the story!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Story of O - the grand daddy of the entire BDSM movement! A classic, and well-written to boot.
Lolita - again, beautifully written, tender but hot.
Ada - another book by Nabokov, but very difficult to read. A real pleasure if you are into erotic literature AND have the patience to tackle something on the range of Moby Dick. You've been warned.
The Ties That Bind - a real life story of BDSM told by a girl who, sadly, died right after writing it. My translation was not used as the English publication.
The Secret History - elusive, possibly sexual, very well written.
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything, as long as it's really well written. And sexy.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I don't read ebooks, I only write them.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing stories since high school, erotic stories since college. So it's been a while. I still have some of my old notebooks.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am writing the wife's version of Black Balled, It's much longer and delves into her feelings as well as details of her experience.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Honestly I didn't think there was a market for this kind of stuff if I went the legitimate author route.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is a great publishing platform -- easy to use, with the best distribution network!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Reading positive reviews. I love that feeling to connect with readers!
