My Writing Process

Hey y'all!

Now it's my turn at this "Writing Process" blog tour. I got involved thanks to phenomenal author Michelle Monkou. Check out her post from last week.

What am I working on?

Check out the blurb.

I just finished edits for an upcoming contemporary interracial BDSM erotic romance re-release called Woman in Chains. The book will be in ebook and print through Phaze Books in March 2014. I'm working on a couple contemporary interracial BDSM erotic romances for a couple of other publishers. Unfortunately, one of my publishers closed, so I have my work through them back. So instead of just re-releasing them, I'm going to tweak them first. By tweaking I mean lengthen and enhance. Now that I don't have to keep the stories as novellas, I want readers to get fully-fleshed out characters.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Check out Corporate Seduction, the first contemporary interracial BDSM erotic romance novel in the Corporate series.

I know that because of the popularity of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy that a lots more authors are writing BDSM. Truth be told, I've been writing BDSM since 2006. What differentiates my work from other BDSM erotic romances is the fact that I write interracial BDSM. That subgenre is very controversial on the outset. However, I write my work where race is not the issue. I write about BDSM to exploit its core. BDSM is about sensations. Some people like a harder sensation than others. Overall, there has to be consent and respect by all parties. That's what I love about writing BDSM. There are so many dynamics to the Lifestyle.

Why do I write what I do?

Love My Way available in ebook and print.

As I mentioned above, I like writing BDSM because of the dynamics in the Lifestyle. I never intended to write BDSM. I thought about the Lifestyle in, probably, the same way people not familiar with the Lifestyle think about it, that it's about violence and hate. People think submissives and slaves are weak-minded. Far from the truth. A submissive or slave has to be very strong and sure of themselves to be involved in the Lifestyle. To write a character like that is a challenge to me. A Dominant hero is the ultimate alpha hero. Alpha males are always fun to write.

How does your writing process work?

Check out my latest release, Licorice Whips, available through Phaze Books in ebook and print.

When I'm writing a novel, I'll start by writing out the hero and heroine's full names (even if I don't use the entire name). I'll describe what each looks like, and will sometimes relate their looks to a particular model or celebrity so that I can have a point of reference. Then I'll write out their internal and external conflicts. Once that's done, I'll write a chapter-by-chapter outline. If I'm going to run into that "muddle in the middle," or what authors commonly call "writer's block," I'd rather experience it in the planning stages than when I'm writing the book. Usually if I get stuck in the middle of the story, it means that my conflict(s) isn't strong enough.

So now that you've learned about me, you definitely will have to check out authors Leigh Ellwood and Di Topaz's blog post on March 17th.

Stay sexy,

Make the Impossible Possible with Deatri King-Bey!

A new I/R book is coming on the scene! Here's author Deatri King-Bey to tell you all about it!

Book Intro: The Impossible Possible by Deatri King-Bey

One of the reasons I love romance so much is taking the common themes and doing something completely different with them. My favorite traditional romance theme has always been the baby daddy theme. In it the heroine hides the fact that she’s had the hero’s child from him. Then years later, they meet again and he discovers the secret! Yeah, I love that one. In my new title, The Impossible Possible, I decided to switch it up a bit. This time the hero hides the fact that he’s the heroine’s son’s father. Hmmm, impossible you think? After you read The Impossible Possible, let me know what you think.

The Impossible Possible

Bryanna Martin has given up on finding her happily ever after. The only way she’ll fall in love and marry is if God sends her Mr. Right to her door. Since she doesn’t believe that will happen, she devotes her life to her adopted son and career. Then the impossible happens, the perfect man literally shows up at her door. Drawn to the handsome stranger, Bryanna wonders if this is one impossible that can become possible.

Alejandro Montenegro, CEO of a Global 500 corporation, dropped everything to catch a flight and claim a son he didn’t know about. When he arrives, he discovers his child is not in foster care being abused, but in the loving care of a golden goddess. To spare his son from losing the only mother he has ever known, Alejandro decides to remain silent about his son’s paternity and pursue Bryanna, but then the impossible happens. He falls in love and knows she will leave him if she discovers his secret.

I love to hear from readers. Let me know what you think.

Much Joy, Peace, and Love

I was mentioned in an article!

A journalist with The Virginian-Pilot did a phone interview with me a couple of weeks ago to get my perspective on the whole 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon. He just gave me 1 quote, but at least he spelled my name correctly! Here's the link to the article.
