BUCKET LIST FOR 2013 – Just a few desires

1. Make a soufflé. Yep. Haven’t made one since the 90’s and I think it’s about time. This time with free range eggs.

2. Read outside comfort zone. Finding and getting to know interesting authors. This year included the likes such as Gillian Flynn, Rhonda Lauren, Junot Diaz, Julia Kavan, Cat Cavendish, and Phillipa Gregory.

3. Write better not faster. ADHD lends itself to doing it quick and then off to the next project. Bad kitty for improvement.

4. Back to mat. More yoga less email, less tweets, less spin.

5. Support microcosms supporting the universe. Karma Café check-in. It’s not all about what I do, but how I respond to what’s given, available, found. Succinctly put: Sharing is caring.

6.  Remember to breathe, ground, ponder, and act.  In that order.

7. Sensory artistic experiences. See, hear, feel, taste, absorb, smell, digest various forms in varied places.

8. Travel to Eastern Europe.

Shoshanna Evers, Author Interview – December 12, 2012
If you had three wishes they would be….
     Hit the New York Times Bestseller list (fingers crossed!)

Have my soon-to-be-launched business help a *lot* of people achieve their dreams...

Live a long, healthy and happy life with my amazing husband and family.

Absolutely, this is top ten bucket list item.
     I hope to be featured in some big magazine as a woman who was a game-changer. We’ll see what the future holds! :)

What are you working on currently?
Currently I’m working on Enraptured, the final book in the Enslaved Trilogy. The trilogy will be published by Simon & Schuster’s Pocket Star imprint in April 2013.

I also just self-published a BDSM erotic romance novella titled The Man Who Holds the Whip. Here’s the blurb:

The Man Who Holds the Whip
When Grace discovers her gorgeous ex-boyfriend Ian broke her heart three years ago so he could pursue a career as a Dom on a BDSM Internet porn site, she never expected to be intrigued...and aroused. Ian looks damn good holding that whip. But can a girl who’s always considered herself “vanilla” fire up her kinky side for love?

To find out, she’s going to audition for a chance to play Ian’s sexual submissive—and maybe find her way back into his heart.

The Man Who Holds the Whip is a 28,000 word MaleDom BDSM erotic romance novella from bestselling erotica author Shoshanna Evers.

You can download a free sample or buy now at AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Smashwords :)

Share a goal seated in the near future.
I’m contracted with Pocket Star for another series called the Pulse Trilogy. It’s a dystopian post-apocalyptic erotic romance. The first book is written, but I need to write the other two novels in the trilogy by July, I believe, so that’s a goal seated in the near future!

And, of course, I’m hoping readers will connect with my characters and spread the word! :)

Thanks for having me!

December 1, 2012 Author Interview: TIFFANY REISZ

1.       What part of your background has helped your writing career and what part has hindered?
Going to a great liberal arts college definitely helped me read the right books. Going to seminary helped me find a theme for my books. The student loans have made it hard to quit my day job which interferes with the writing.
2.       How has your life changed since the release of The Siren?
Everything has changed and nothing has changed. I’m a real published writer now with books on bookshelves in multiple countries. That’s fabulous. But I still have a day job. I still live in the same condo. I still have to feed my damn cats. Oh no! The cats! ::runs to feed cats::
3.       Do readers’ expectation and assumptions alter you or your writing? Perhaps prompt a direction to take in future projects?
I interact with my fans on a daily basis. It really helps me see my books through a reader’s eyes. They ask me questions that I never thought of so when I go back to writing I think about how I can answer their question or clarify their confusion. My readers inspire lots of great stuff!
4.       What type of research do you do for your characters? Language, culture, background beyond the sexual kink.  
        The world is flat now apparently and luckily that means it’s very easy for me to reach out to someone to help me with my research. I have a character who is half-Danish. Easy! I have a Danish friend on Twitter who answers all my questions for me about Denmark. Most everything is in my imagination, and then I dig until I find the reality to match my fantasy.
5.       How do you approach writing the manuscript from the conception of an idea?
I just start writing. I usually have a beginning, end, and vague idea of a middle before I start writing. Then I just glue my ass to the chair every night and pound out the words.
6.       What avenues need to be opened in writing and publishing erotica? Beyond the hype of Fifty Shades.
I think erotica is doing fine. My books have a lot of controversial content in them and I haven’t gotten any pushback from my agent or editor. Readers have been welcoming as well. If the book is well-written, you can get away with anything. I’d love to see more writers take on the taboo. Only by bringing these things out into to the open do we dispel the unnecessary shame we all feel for our totally healthy sexual fantasies and desires.
7.       You have a tremendous amount of information to share concerning writing in general and a specialty in erotica. You’ve opened doors for other authors to follow.  Are you considering teaching?
       I’d love to teach if I had the time. Writing takes talent, yes, but mostly it’s a craft and you can learn how to be a better writer by studying your craft. I’d teach in a heartbeat if I had the time.
8.       What experiences do you draw upon to access and to write such full-bodied complex characters? Especially someone like Søren.
        Søren’s a combination of one of my former Dominants (a six foot four blond sadist), plus college professors, and God. I gave him my love of theology and my sadistic streak. Creating a character is like solving a mystery for me. I investigate my character. I take what I know about them and then dig into their pasts. I know everything about my characters from birth. It helps me enrich them by giving them religious feelings, philosophies of life, personal preferences, pet peeves, bad habits, sexual fantasies, and childhood memories.

9.       How do you stoke your creative muse? OR What do you do to clear your mind and recharge?
      I don’t bother with muses. They are fickle lovers. I show up to my book at the same time every night. Then the magic happens. I don’t wait for the magic to happen first. The magic never happens until I start writing.
10.    What are your currently reading?

Literati Literature Post Inspired by Tiffany Reisz’s The Siren. Enjoy!

Tiffany Reisz lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

If she couldn’t write, she would die.

Six Sentence Sunday: TRUST FALL

This last week has been more than busy between finishing one manuscript involving a scene I kept putting off, detailing large animal veterinary methods, and instead of giving into brain frizzle, I did what many writers do to keep fresh. I took a writer's break. Between assimilating research and churning out a scene, I went back to my roots of romance. But something changed. Drastically.

This time I didn't stop until I had the makings of a short-piece of a couple thousand words from the idea of what if it were possible to just meet someone and let go. When Jeff Steward asks, "Do you trust me?" Crash landing from a break up, Cerise considers her options.

Six Sentences
“What do I have to go on?” she whispered already knowing he’d bought the farm so what was the point of quibbling, acquiesced by nodding, and bit her lower lip to silence errant second thoughts.
“Get ready,” he whispered before dipping her backwards.
She arched into a variant of a trust fall. His hand traced a smoldering line down her back until he gripped her ass. She moaned. His fingers moved as if in time to the pulsing music, separating her cheeks without stopping, her senses on full alert, unbelieving that he grazed the inside of thighs and caressed her intimately.
Through free form scribbling, I discovered oh this is so much fun and decided, why not. So here's my trust fall into an erotic tale without the romance story set-ups, and a first for me.

My recommendation for the holidays!
