Blakely’s Friday Interview with Dakota Dawson

Please give a warm welcome to Dakota Dawson, author of several short stories including Fulfilling Rachel: The Sexcation.

dakotaauthorTell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on or promoting.
I’m an “experimenter” and love sex in almost every form. I have very few hang-ups and don’t judge anyone for their kinks and fetishes. As long as you enjoy what you’re doing and aren’t harming anyone (non-consensually of course), I think it’s awesome! I have a degree in English, but don’t blame me for mistakes, as I believe in descriptive vs prescriptive. Right now I am finishing up a foursome story (which might be based on a true story…), and in the middle of a dystopian erotica story. In the latter, sex has become a form of entertainment similar to television that is solely done through virtual reality. My protagonist breaks free from the mold and looks for physical interaction, no matter what the risk. Continue reading

Why Every Woman Should Masturbate

6212484239_bddc00230a_zI’m a masturbation enthusiast. I believe learning the ins and outs of yourself (so to speak) makes you a better lover and most definitely a better teacher for your partner on what works for you.

My husband recently shared with me an article called 13 Reasons Every Woman Should Masturbate Regularly. Before I delve into Alanna Vagianos’s reasons, I’d like to reiterate a couple of my own. Continue reading

Blakely’s Friday Interview with Scarlett Finn

Please give a warm welcome to Scarlett Finn, author of Explicit Instruction.

What genre is your book? Do you write in other genres as well?
I write romance. All of my novels have romance as their central theme. I’ve published in contemporary romance and romantic suspense, and have dallied in other romance genres in my private collection too.

Who or what inspires you?
Many things inspire me. I find that there are ideas all around us and even the simplest gesture or statement can lead to a spark of inspiration, which can be a springboard into the premise of a novel. Continue reading

Is it really me … or is it you?

8635216355_51c0b326bf_zWhy is it that when someone doesn’t like me or what I create, my response is to like myself less instead of liking them less? Last night, sitting on the couch with my husband watching a movie, my mind wandered and the above is what came to me.

Anthropologically it makes sense to me. We, as a species, needed to care what the tribe thought so we could all survive.

Most of us care about what other people think. I get that. Short of the few narcissists I have met in my life, it seems to plague all of us to some extent. Continue reading

Blakely’s Friday Interview with Dick Midnight

Please give a warm welcome to Dick Midnight, author of Dick Midnight and The Nether Regions series.

sword and pocketwatch logo crisp black and whiteTell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on or promoting.
Dick Midnight is a badass.
He is also the master of pseudo-biographical mythological erotica, or mytherotica, for short. His stories have been must reads among an established cult following that discovered the works in the recesses of the deep internet. Now, for the first time, the extensive Dick Midnight catalog is gradually being made available in more accessible online venues.

For centuries, eons even, artists like Dick Midnight have warned of the dangers of the creatures of our mythology, looming in the shadows, on the fringes of civilization. But as science and academia have taken hold and proclaimed Gods and beasts as little more than figments of our active imaginations, we have let down our guard. When an unexplained abduction occurs, and Dick Midnight’s services are requested, his calling begins. He is at once monster slayer, damsel rescuer, and entertaining, engrossing, erotica wordsmith.

My New Year’s Resolutions for 2015

calvin-hobbes-new-years-resolutionsIt’s that time again to focus on our goals and resolutions for the upcoming year. I reread mine from last year and many will be the same for this year. I almost hit all my writing goals (different stories than I imagined), which is good and bad. I still haven’t found a good balance between writing, social media and relaxing. I definitely worked too much this year as well. So here goes: Continue reading

The Art of Conversation

converseOne of the more important factors for me, in writing a novel, is the dialogue between the characters. It must flow in a natural way and my readers should actually feel the different cadence between different people in the story.

Why is this on my mind? Well I’ll tell you…

My husband and I were out for our walk the other day and we ran into some female friends. When my girlfriends and I get together and are excited about a topic, we tend to share the conversation. Sometimes our comments even overlap. Maybe it’s a girl thing? Continue reading

Blakely’s Friday Interview with George A. Kos

Please give a warm welcome to George A. Kos, author of Wizards’ Secret Service: The Key of Radmarand & The Brotherhood of Darkness.

me (1)Tell us a bit about yourself and what you’re currently working on or promoting.
Since I was a kid I always loved fantasy stories and as some of my classmates always told me, I kind of lived in my own world. After getting older this passion for everything unusual grew stronger and I began to try writing short stories. Now I’m promoting my debut novel Wizards’ Secret Service and The Brotherhood of Darkness.

Do you have an agent and/or publisher or are you self-published? If self-published, do you use a professional editor? If traditionally published, who is your publisher?
I don’t have an agent. Frankly, more than 130 agents rejected me, but I was lucky to receive a contract offer from traditional publisher Silver Knight Publishing and I’m glad I signed it. Continue reading
