Smashwords Interview

How did you get into BDSM art and fiction?
I've always been kinky that way--my earliest fantasies were about bound women, damsels in distress (blame it on "The Perils of Penelope Pitstop", James Bond and assorted old horror films). I stuffed a lot of that for a long time, then started doing erotic art (nudes, pinups) in my thirties to challenge myself. (I had been doing fantasy, scifi, and "nice safe" landscapes.) I had also been studying Japanese martial arts, which led to a collision with Hojojutsu (martial rope restraint techniques) which expressed itself popularly as the modern Shibari (Japanese Rope Bondage), which I thought was just beautiful. The problem was, I was living in a rather conservative state at the time. But when I moved to far Northern California, the community was rich with alternative lifestyles, and lots of folks (male and female) were really liking my art. That gave me the opportunity to go "public" with it, doing shows, putting on seminars, working with other artists and more models (and test readers). I've even given lectures on BDSM at the local State University (and showed off my questionable skills with a bullwhip in the local erotic circus). Now it's just settled into being my semi-secret "alter ego", since I have to be a different person publically and professionally.
When did you first start writing erotica?
Not until the early "aughts", though the ideas for what became "Tales of the Huntsman" had been stewing in my brain for a long time, along with a few other concepts. I'd been writing my "other stuff" since I was a teenager, but had to grow up a lot before I finally got brave enought to start "Tales" as kind of a creative experiment, a dare to myself, as I'd been pretty inhibited about writing any kind of sexual scenes in my mainstream books. (Hey, my mom reads those!) So I kept the whole thing secret, then slowly started showing it to a few "intimate" friends, who helped me a great deal with the fine tuning. But I sat on "Tales" for a decade, with no intention to ever publish it.

Smashwords book reviews by M Palmeri

  • The God Mars Book One: CROATOAN on Dec. 01, 2016

    Very well written. Really grabs you and keeps moving. Feels like classic pulp scifi from the fifties and sixties with a modern edge. A very interesting world.
  • The God Mars Book Two: Lost Worlds on Dec. 01, 2016

    Great follow up to Book One. Keeps you hooked. Reminds me of the classic world-building scifi with more action.
  • The God Mars Book Three: The Devil You Are on Dec. 01, 2016

    Shifts impressively smoothly from the traditional hard scifi of the first two into a novel high-tech take on sword-and-planet and superhero fiction. Great characters. Great action.
  • The God Mars Book Four: Live Blades on Dec. 03, 2016

    The new direction and characters were thoroughly enjoyable. I definitely got the sword-and-planet classic pulp Burroughs/Moorcock vibe, but with a cool hard science take. The series continues to grab you and run.
  • The God Mars Book Five: Onryo on Dec. 03, 2016

    Another great evolution for this series. Powerful and honestly heartbreaking. Great characters, great settings, great action, great villain.
  • Grayman Book One: Acts of War on Dec. 24, 2016

    A tightly written engaging thriller about the making of a "hero" that's definitely timely given current events. Very intense and believable.
  • Grayman Book Two: The Ratings War on Dec. 24, 2016

    Great follow up to Book One. Keeps right on moving. Disturbingly predictive of current events. Love the characters.
  • Grayman Book Three: Vulnerability on Dec. 24, 2016

    Best one yet. Fast-paced and powerful stuff. Stays with you.
  • Grayman Book Four: Scary Monsters on Dec. 24, 2016

    The series keeps right on moving breathlessly. Some big shocks and intriguing new characters. Great action as always.
  • Grayman Book Five: The Ragnarok on Dec. 24, 2016

    BIG finish. Very moving, very exciting. And sets up some interesting possibilities for what happens next.
  • The God Mars Book Six: Valhalla I Am Coming on Dec. 24, 2016

    This one gets pretty brutal. We're back to the core characters from Book 3 with some unexpected twists, new settings and a few interesting new players. Cool fresh take on an old trope. Can't wait to see what happens next.
  • The God Mars Book Seven: Earthside on April 14, 2017

    A great installment in a great series. Hilarious, brutal and wicked-smart. Love these characters. Love this world.
  • The God Mars Book Eight: Better Angels on Sep. 06, 2019

    A fantastic end to a great series! Does a good job of wrapping up the main character arcs and resolving the major plotlines. Well worth the wait. Ending made me cry.
