I'm releasing a steamy romance in 2014 about a kink therapist and professional Dom, Brent Ryan, who tries to balance his work with his new-found attraction to his conservative neighbor, Scarlett. So, I came up with the idea to put out some kinky shorts that feature some of his patients/clients. They are stand-alone HFN romance novelettes that touch on a variety of kinks, so they don't have to be read in order.
The first volume, Nothing But Trouble, is told by naughty Molly, who wants a spanking in the worst way after witnessing a DD spanking in church. Her bratty behavior gets her an invite from Brent for some pink and schoolgirl kink. And in the second volume, Miss Little Bitty Attitude, we'll hear from Shanna, who discovers she's not just into ageplay like she thought, but she actually, deep-down, craves a more constant daddy/little girl dynamic in a relationship. She goes to Brent to sort it all out and overcome her fears and disgust.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like being in control.....hahaha.....pretty funny coming from a BDSM-y writer, who loves being the sub in bed. JUST in bed...some of the time.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love seeing my characters come to life through a vivid voice that's already in my head when pen hits paper.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on more novelettes. I also write under the name Daizie Draper, so if you like my Krissy Rose work and want more spanking action, check out my BDSM saga, Sorority Pledge.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
God, my family and my passions and zest for life. Life's too short to waste on non-productivity....Damn you, Candy Crush Saga!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Having sex, running, reading, cooking, watching sports and all kinds of mom stuff.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I use keyword search, (which could be improved on here----eh em, hint, hint. I mean, you've blocked the whole "spanking" category with books published way back in 2010. Make room for newbies or give visitors a selection for Newest to Oldest instead of just 100 pages).
I download a lot of free books and buy thrillers, New Adult and Young Adult books that strike my interest, but I usually don't BUY erotica unless someone is getting whacked or being dominated--M/F preferably. Mmmm. I love me a strong, sexy man, with an iron fist and a heart of gold. That's just how I roll....
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No, but I remember bursting off excitedly to go find my Picture Pages at the instructions of Bill Cosby and being really upset that I could only find a plain, old lined pad.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I read Frog & Toad. It did not have an impact on me, but it may have contributed to my love for frogs.
How do you approach cover design?
I try to find a photo that best represents the story, but it's hard to find fresh stock. Everyone dips into the same pool. Kink shots are even more scarce and overused.
