The Next Big Thing Blog Hop Continues...





Thanks for joining me on this latest stop on The Next Big Thing Blog Hop, week 28. I’m taking the baton from the groovy Karis Walsh, who was generous enough to tag me at the last minute as I ran around in a tizzy of my own making.

The purpose of this hop is to expose folks to writers and their work that perhaps they haven’t heard of, whether a new release or a Work in Progress (WIP).

According to the rules of the hop, I will be answering some questions (the same ones for every other blog hopper) about my newest release, Broken in Soft Places (May 2013, Bold Strokes Books). At the bottom of the post, I’ve listed authors who will do the same thing in their blogs next Wednesday January 9th.

What is the working title of your book? I just released a long, short story called “Return to Me” (which is only available digitally for now) and will be publishing a collection of erotic lesbian stories this June in both print and ebook formats. But the book I’m focusing on here is called Broken in Soft Places.

Where did the idea come from for the book? The plot for Broken is a combination of dozens of ideas I’ve had over the years, but the seed of the story comes from a conversation I had with some friends while drinking far too much red wine. The question came up: What would you do if you ended up in an unwanted threesome simply for the sake of pleasing your lover?

What genre does your book fall under? The book is classified as “general fiction” although there is an unconventional romance at its core.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? If I could time travel, I’d bring in a fierce and nubile Eartha Kitt to play my seductress, Rille. Gabrielle Union gives good virgin, so she’d so a great job as Sara.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? A young woman falls under the spell of a gorgeous, older co-ed and ends up involved in a long-term threesome.

What is the longer synopsis of your book?
Some mornings, Sara Chambers wakes in bed next to her girlfriend and her girlfriend’s lover wondering how she ended up there. Beautiful, successful, and a force to be reckoned with at her Atlanta law firm, Sara is still powerless in her attraction to the rebellious and reckless, Rille Thompson.
As college girlfriends, Sara and Rille’s relationship had been incendiary, burning away Sara’s innocence and self-respect even as it widened her world beyond her wildest imagination. Now, almost twenty years later, Rille still pushes Sara beyond her limits, bringing a third lover into their bed and domestic lives when their monogamy gets stale. The hold Rille has over Sara—and their new lover—becomes as powerful as it is dangerous. Can Sara pull herself free in time, or will her life turn to cinders in the wake of Rille’s powerful flame?

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? The novel is being published by Bold Strokes Books.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? Years and years. It’s the longest time I’ve ever taken to write a book.

Who or What inspired you to write this book? An ex-girlfriend of mine was always encouraging me to stretch myself with the type of fiction that I write. She supported my lesbian erotica but practically dared me to write something different. I wrote a young adult novel over a year ago and now I’m trying this in hopes that the audience that has supported me since my first book in 2005 will follow me with Broken.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? The book is sexy, atmospheric, and has plenty of food porn. Are you piqued yet?

Next Wednesday check out the blogs of Skyy and Brook Blander to find out about their Next Big Thing.

never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content
I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.
