Smashwords Interview

Why erotica?
I love sex! I've always loved sex! It's a miracle--the intertwining of bodies, the buildup, the excitement, the tension and the incredible release of orgasm (or orgasms, when with a lover). And all the places to have sex--in bed, in the kitchen, on the couch, in the middle of the floor, on the porch, in the garage, anyplace outdoors (but especially in the woods)! It's just so exciting. To be able to write about sex, in nitty gritty, loving detail (and unabashedly), is thrilling and liberating. All that contrasts with the reality that sex is taboo (explicit sex, anyway--as far as the media and advertising, it's shoved down your throat). Sex--and I include masturbating, which I truly love and do every day--is something that virtually everybody does, but no one talks about. So it's a real privilege to use my writing talent to share the joy and mystery of sexual arousal with readers as we explore this incredibly powerful human experience.
Do you remember the first erotica story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Two books, Over the Knee and On the Bare, both by Fiona Locke, got me so hot and bothered that I started thinking about writing erotica. They're both very well written, so it set a high standard. The topics are spanking (and the books are very British, and the British are so into spanking!), which isn't my primary kink. But the heat level is very high.

Smashwords book reviews by K.C. Cave

  • Shattered Crystal on May 24, 2015

    With the recent biker-gang shootout in Waco, what could be a better read than Shattered Crystal? Author Jasen Flint's inside look at Texas biker gangs, the illegal drug trade, stripping, prostitution and white slavery is fascinating (and authoritative). The set-up is clever: Small-town Texas girl Crystal, a stunning beauty stuck in a boring marriage, finds her true vocation--stripping--after a biker dude fresh out of prison moves into her trailer park. Crystal loves sex, drugs and partying, which leads to a downward spiral that's the crux of the novel. While she's a likeable and sympathetic character, it's a cabal of evil (and, in some cases, likeable) characters that move the book along (handsome and cruel patched bikers, black pimps and strip club owners, a sadistic stripper, and more). Flint takes readers into a sordid world of crystal meth addiction (nice play on words in the title and, by the way, a terrific cover) and the inside workings of a biker club. Ever wonder how women get entrapped in white slavery? The author gives us a chilling view of the methodology, cruelty and utter depravity of sex trafficking. It all ends in a gang war with a lethal group of pissed-off Mexicans. What's not to like? Quibbles: It's too long--I would've have preferred a tighter book that doesn't span as many years (and would have spared us the author's tendency to tell instead of show). While there's lots of sex (and not just vanilla--you'll find cuckolding, lesbian and three-way), I would've liked the heat level to be higher (I know, it could be a marketing problem if the book crossed the line into erotica). When the book finally wraps up, Flint gives us (probably inadvertently) a graphic illustration of how much more interesting evil characters are than the good guys. That said--highly recommended. (Full disclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher.)
