Interview with Natasha Stevens

Published 2014-02-08.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I know it's suppose to be a sin -- but LUST. Lust for sex, lust for writing, and lust for life.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Well, I like dancing and clubs, of course. I like to spend time outside, or exercising, when I'm not working because writing can be rather sedentary and I don't want a big ass. ;-) And of course I do research for my books by getting involved with as many wild and wonderful sexual situations as I can.
What are you working on next?
I definitely have plans for a sequel to JANA'S JOURNEY that should be even more thrilling and kinky. It will have a much more elaborate storyline as Matt and Jana find themselves going undercover in the global trade in sex slaves.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Well, if not from word or mouth, I do tend to just be attracted by covers and titles, and I always read the first few paragraphs using the preview features on the various ebook website. And if it hasn't grabbed me by the first few paragraphs, I usually know it's not going to.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
A variation on a prince rescuing the princess. But they didn't do any wild fucking, you'll be glad to know.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like anything that's got a good storyline and interesting characters. I'm really starting to hate formulaic fiction written at an 8th grade reading level designed to sell to Hollywood for a series of PG-13 movies. (Not that I don't like YA novels, if they're original enough.) I just dislike cliches, like any good writer.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
The internal link and internal advertising seems to work well enough for me, as well as the "If You Liked This You Might Also Like" matrix.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana, and I was a Catholic schoolgirl much like Jana -- a little too beautiful (and breasty) and a little too innocent for my own good. The sinful side of New Orleans was hard to resist.
What do your fans mean to you?
Well what would writing be without some fans? It would just be me masturbating. Although of course that's also a good thing ...
Who are your favorite authors?
Hmm, well, that's a long and varied list. I grew up reading Stephen King and Elmore Leonard, and I hope you can see the influence of those guys in my minimal and to-the-point prose and straight-up dialogue.

As far as erotica, STORY OF O had a big influence on me, of course. One of my favorite authors who writes about sex a lot (although not particularly detailed erotica) is John Irving. WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP and UNTIL I FIND YOU are truly moving (and sexy) experiences.
What is your writing process?
It takes a lot out of me to write erotica, because I ALWAYS masturbate while I write. I mean, if I don't, how is the reader going to? So when you get to the sexy parts, just imagine me squealing as I write them. ;-)

I usually write in the evening, hopefully after a day in which I got some exercise -- biking, running, yoga, whatever -- and thought a lot about what I was going to write. I try to do 2500 words a day minimum, but I don't write every day.
