Erotic Authors – What Makes them Tick? Revisited #2

Hi, I’m back with a new group of Erotic Authors and fresh new interviews. You may remember a year ago when I interviewed several authors of eXtasy Books. Well this time I’m interviewing the fabulous authors of Midnight Seductions. This will be interview #2. Shall we begin?

Erotic Authors, What makes them tick?

Dear reader,

As a consumer of erotica, have you ever wondered how the writers of those titillating stories, which make us wet or hard, come up with their wild scenarios. Are they writing from experience? Do they have fantasies? Have they indulged themselves or are they all talk and no show? (like me.)

I’m Dee Dawning and I’m going to put these kinds of questions to some of the top Erotic Authors in the business.

I don’t care what they eat. I want to know who they would like to eat or ate! What motivates them? What gets them going?

Shall we find out?

This week’s person of interest is highly acclaimed author Paige Tyler.

Welcome Paige, seeing how we are trying to get a feel for the sensuous writer, my questions may be a little pointed, so if you have a problem with a question, just go to the next one.

First question:

How did you start writing erotica?

I would classify my books more as erotic romance than erotica. While they’re super sexy, they’re definitely all about the romance! As for how I started writing it, I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but just hadn’t found my voice yet. I was actually browsing the Internet for something sexy to read when I came across an eBook romance site and thought to myself, “Hey, I could write that!”

How long have you been writing erotica and would you prefer to write anything else?

I’ve been writing erotic romance for about five years now, and I absolutely love it! So, nope, I wouldn’t want to write anything else!

Do you feel you offer anything special to your readers?

I like to think that I offer fun, sexy stories that let readers explore some naughty fantasies, as well as a very romantic read.

What are your writing goals?

Another author friend actually asked me this, and honestly, I don’t really set any. My goal is to enjoy what I’m doing, and I love writing erotic romance.

Do you have a favorite erotica or erotic romance author or authors?

I like Lacey Alexander and Lora Leigh. I also recently discovered Erin McCarthy, and I absolutely love her books!

Writing erotica and erotic romance, you are assumed to be a sexual person. Do you have any sexual hang-ups?

I’m going to skip this question. Not because I’m saying I have any, but because I’m not really into sharing. LOL!

As an erotic writer and a sexual person, do you have any sexual fantasies?

Sure do! I put ’em in all of my books!

Have you acted out your fantasy? If you haven’t would you consider living out your fantasy?

Have I ever? Yes!

From where do you get your main characters?

My imagination. They kind of just come to me!

What is your preferred style, when writing erotica, ie. m/f, f/f, m/m, mfm, bdsm, etc?

M/F and I always like to put what I call my “signature spanking” in all of my books!

What do you personally look for in a sexual partner?

Gonna skip this question, too! LOL!

Have you ever crossed any sexual taboos, ie. sex in a public place?

Me, I’m very shy! Which is why I do all that stuff through the characters in my books! LOL!

Which celebrities or other well known individuals, if any, do you drool over?

I’ve definitely got a thing for Viggo Mortensen! LOL! I like David Boreanaz, too!

Do you sometimes get turned on by your own erotic writing?

Definitely! That’s one of the reasons I love writing it! LOL!

If so, do you do anything about it?

Gonna skip this question, too! LOL!

Have you ever participated in any of the wild scenarios of which you have written?

My hubby and I actually went to a spanking party for research once, and remember how I said I’m shy? Well, while spanking parties are fun to write about, I quickly discovered that they’re not for me! LOL!

In your estimation, what is the sexiest book/story you have written? Do you have a sexy passage that you would share with us?

I’d say Cindra and the Bounty Hunter. It’s a sexy sci-fi erotic romance that includes lots of hot sex, as well as some very delicious spankings! It was a Blue-Ribbon Favorite over at Romance Junkies and is available in eBook, Print, and Amazon Kindle. Here’s a sexy excerpt!

Cindra didn’t know what to expect, but the Strap and Cuff was nothing like she had pictured it. After Bladen had paid the exorbitant cover charge, they were shown into a room that reminded Cindra of a library. There were shelves full of books and paintings on the walls, even a huge antique desk and chair. Though everything looked innocent enough on the surface, as she and Bladen moved into the room, she saw that the paintings were a bit on the erotic side, as were the titles of the books.

She let her gaze run casually over the small group of men and women in the room. Though some of the women had on leather skirts and bustiers similar to hers, Cindra noted, most of them wore simple cocktail dresses. The men were dressed either in leather breeches or suits. Much to Cindra’s chagrin, not a one of them was doing anything even remotely kinky.

She leaned close to Bladen and whispered in his ear. “Are you sure we’re in the right place?”

He shrugged. “That’s the name that’s on the door. Unless the waiter gave us bad information. Let’s go look around.”

Taking her hand, he led her past a group of men sipping after-dinner drinks and into the next room. This one was a little more like what she had expected. With walls of rough stone, it resembled a dungeon, complete with shackles on the wall and a whipping post in the center of the room. Secured to the post was a naked woman, her arms high above her head, her back to them. Her skin was so pale it looked almost ghostly and Cindra could just make out the faint crisscross of white scars on the woman’s back and derriere. Cindra watched in astonishment as a big man brandishing a whip stepped up behind the woman. Giving Bladen a little push, she hurried him from the room just as the man drew his arm back and as they stepped through the doorway, she could hear the sound of the woman’s scream as the whip lashed against her tender skin. While the thought of spanking might be arousing, what was going on in that room just looked too painful to even consider trying out.

Though there was also another dungeon room like the one they’d just left, the next several rooms they went into after that were much more to her liking. In some, there were plush velvet draperies and plump-cushioned couches where women were being spanked by men, and in some cases, other women. She hadn’t thought about a woman spanking another woman, but as she watched a pretty blonde redden a petite dark-haired girl’s ass, Cindra had to admit that she found the idea sort of intriguing.

Bladen tried to strike up a conversation with several people there, but was coolly rebuffed at every turn. Though he frowned slightly, he said nothing as he led Cindra into the adjoining room. Like the others, this one was decorated with luscious fabrics and plush furniture, but her gaze was immediately drawn to the odd-looking piece of furniture on the other side of the room. It resembled the saw horses she had seen at construction sites, but it was heavily padded on top and had four leather cuffs attached to it, two on the top and one on each leg. It was both the oddest, and most intriguing piece of furniture she had ever seen. Of course, never having seen one before walking into the club, she probably wouldn’t have known exactly what it was for if she hadn’t seen a girl tied down over it and getting spanked in one of the other rooms.

Dragging her gaze away from the padded horse, Cindra turned her attention to the small group of people clustered around a cushioned bench in the center of the room. As Bladen led her over to them, she saw a pretty blond girl being taken over a handsome man’s knee. Even though her bottom was already bright red fro the spanking she’d obviously just gotten, the girl didn’t protest when her partner told their audience that he thought she needed “just a few more.”

Cindra watched in fascination as the man began to spank the woman’s upturned bottom again. He worked in a methodical fashion, smacking first one cheek and then the other, going back and forth, back and forth until her asscheeks positively glowed. Though the girl kicked and squirmed and even squealed in protest for most of it, it was obvious she was enjoying herself. When he was done spanking her, which wasn’t until a good ten minutes later, the man turned his partner over to sit on his lap and pressed his lips to hers.

After the performance, the crowd dispersed and moved to other areas of the room where they sat down to chat and enjoy their drinks. Bladen tried to insert himself and Cindra into the small group of people talking with the couple that had just given the show, but anything he said was again met with cool, but polite replies, and after a minute, the group simply dispersed to join another, leaving her and Bladen standing there.

Cindra could tell from his clenched jaw that Bladen was getting frustrated. “Maybe they’ll talk to us once they get to know us,” she offered quietly.

He snorted. “And how are they going to get to know us when they won’t even talk to us?”

She was trying to come up with an answer to that when a male voice intruded on their conversation.

“They’re waiting to see if you’re really in the scene or whether you’re just here to watch.”

Cindra turned to see a distinguished-looking older gentleman dressed in an impeccably tailored suit standing behind her.

“Pardon me?” Bladen said.

The man smiled. “Members of our club are a rather tight-knit group,” he explained. “Especially around tourists who gawk at us as if we were the paid entertainment. They’ll open up to you once they see you perform.”

Cindra felt her pulse skip a beat at the word, “perform.” Her pussy immediately went wet at the thought!

Bladen glanced at her. “I see,” he said. “Since we’re new here, do you mind if I ask what the protocol is when it comes to that?”

“Not at all.” The man gestured to the room. “The floor is yours. Simply do whatever you feel comfortable with,” he said and then with a nod, moved off to join the rest of the people clustered on the far side of the room.

Bladen looked at her. “Are you sure about this?”

She nodded wordlessly.

He gently ran a finger down her cheek. “I’ll take it easy on you.”

Cindra gave him a sexy little smile. “Not too easy,” she said softly. “We have to make this look good, you know.”

She leaned close to gently kiss him on the mouth and then before he could reply, she sidled past him to walk over to the padded horse. He probably could have simply taken her over his knee, she supposed, but she’d been drawn to the horse ever since they’d seen the girl tied down and getting spanked over one in the other room.

Stepping up behind it, she spread her legs so they were in line with the horse’s wooden ones, and then bent over at the waist so that she was resting on the padded top. Balancing on her forearms, she placed her wrists in the padded leather cuffs, and then looked over her shoulder at Bladen. He was standing where she’d left him, a sexy smile curving the corner of his mouth, and she wondered what he was thinking. After a moment, he walked across the room to where she lay draped over the horse.

The first thing Bladen did was secure the cuffs around each of her wrists, and she felt her stomach do a cartwheel as he tightened first one and then the other. She couldn’t believe she was actually doing this, and in a room full of people, no less!

After her wrists were securely bound, she expected Bladen to do the same to her ankles, but he surprised her by sliding his hand into her long hair and tipping her head back. She blinked up at him, wondering if he was going to ask her again if she was sure about what they were about to do, but instead, he bent his head to cover her mouth with his in a long, intoxicating kiss. Lifting his head, he gazed into her eyes for a long moment before moving around behind her. As he did so, he ran his hand over her hip and down her booted leg, and she let out a delicious little shiver as she felt him fasten the cuffs around her ankles. Now, with wrists and ankles both cuffed to the wooden horse, she could do nothing but wait in breathless anticipation for Bladen to begin.

It’s available at Romantic Spankings, SpankBook, and at Amazon. Readers can find out how to get their copy by visiting my website at

My, that certainly rang my bell!

What is your most current release? Please post a short blurb or tell us about it.

I have a new release coming out in September with Whiskey Creek Press Torrid called Animal Attraction. It’s a hot paranromal erotic romance! Here’s the blurb!

Animal Attraction

Not only are werewolves real, but they’re damn hunky, too!

Frustrated when none of the real newspapers will hire her as a reporter, Eliza Bradley takes the only job she can get – at a paranormal magazine. Her first assignment takes her to Fairbanks , Alaska to investigate the possibility that a werewolf has killed two local hikers.

She forgets about the story, however, when she meets Hunter McCall, a local college professor and an expert on wolves. The man is an absolute hunk, and she finds herself spending more time in his bed than worrying about werewolves. That is, until Eliza finds out that Hunter isn’t just an animal in the sack, he’s an animal out of it, too – of the werewolf variety! Talk about a complicated relationship!

But Eliza can’t dwell on Hunter’s little shapeshifting issues. There’s another werewolf out there with a taste for human blood, and she and Hunter are the only ones who can stop him.

Thank you for being this week’s guinea… ah er, guest and sharing with your fans. I hope you have found our questions… umm, stimulating.

Thank you, Dee!
