Sunday Morning Chat: #Interview with @SuzyAyers

John Satisfy:  Today I'd like to welcome Suzy Ayers onto Erotic Satisfaction.  She's a wonderful author, a good friend, and a strong supporter of indie writers.  Can you please tell me a little about yourself and what you write.

Suzy Ayers:  I am currently a stay at home mom, but I am looking fiercely for a job. I cannot believe how tough it is to find something quite honestly. Anyway, I have a BS in Business Management, a minor in Psychology and I love to work. I guess you could say I have a lot of drive in everything I do. I set my goals high, but achievable and writing has always been a dream. I write almost everything free hand and then type it into the computer.

My style has been compared to Stephen King by a few different people (no not what I write). I write, I don't plan it just flows and the characters are there talking within me. I never outline or plan. Which is odd, because I am normally a planner, someone who loves lists, Type-A in a lot of my life. But perhaps that is where my passion comes in. Writing is my sanity and like reading, it brings me into this other world. The other way I have been compared to the great Mr King is how I construct my sentence strings at times. Repeating words on occasion, to draw attention in a certain situation.

Initially, when I started on Twitter my bio said, "I'm all over the place", which I think speaks to who I really am. My blog is a perfect example of this where beyond my genres in Romance: erotica, fantasy and paranormal books, I also blog about food. Cooking is another passion of mine.

JS:  I've noticed on your blog you've had some steaming recipes to share, not just hot stories.  In fact you've even hosted one or two of mine in the past.  What type of cooking are you known for/most proud of?

Sunday Morning Chat: #Interview with @lb_shaw

Today I’d like to welcome LB Shaw to Erotic Satisficition.  This is the official Sunday Morning Chat and I'm pleased that LB was gracious enough to be my first interviewee for this. She’s quite a talented author, but she’s so much more than that.

John Satisfy:  Can you please tell us a little about yourself and what kinds of works you write?

LB Shaw: I am an artist, continually exploring different ways of expressing creativity through writing and sculpting. I grew up in the south in a very religious home and consequently spent a great deal of my childhood wanting to rebel against everything. But that little voice inside my head kept me on the straight and narrow which prevented me from screwing up too much. Unfortunately, that same little voice served as a ruse at times, tricking me into believing I'm not who I think I am, and I'm not capable of succeeding. I think most of us can identify with that voice. I'm learning to embrace and encourage that inner child who has been buried for so long, reprogramming her to believe in herself and no longer deny all that she is and all that she can be.

Though I've been journaling since I was five years old and writing little stories here and there, I began writing fiction with the intention to self-publish about a year ago. My first was a two-part, erotic romantic suspense series called Trust In Me. My third book, Little Sinner, was inspired by a wee little priest fetish of mine and has elements of BDSM. It's certainly not a story that will cater to everyone's tastes, but it was a lot of fun to write and served as somewhat of a mental masturbation for me. I currently have two books I'm working on, though one of them, Becoming Stone, is on a slow simmer. It's a dark romance with elements of domination and submission and has been difficult to write because the characters are so "angsty", but I'll get it finished someday, someway. The other, which is the one I'm actively working on, is a time-travel romance novella scheduled to be published this spring.

Over the past month, I've noticed a shift in what I feel pulled to write. Subsequently, I've discovered a passion for flash fiction. For those who don't know, flash fiction can be thought of as a story of extreme brevity and is typically anywhere from 300-3000 words. I like to use pictures as visual prompts, as I'm a highly visual person. If you visit my blog, you will see some of my current flash fiction pieces with the pictures attached to the posts. I like to incorporate elements of romance or love in these pieces, but some of them are quite painful as well. I'm not sure exactly where my writing will take me from here, but I feel excited about the possibilities. I've always been drawn to the dark and macabre, so it's not surprising that I would ultimately explore this in my writing.

JS: Sounds like you're really busy with quite a few different irons in the fire at once.  Does that make it difficult for you to keep focus?  Is that part of why you are finding flash fiction so rewarding, you finish one piece quickly and can then move on to the next?

Return to #SatSpanks: Part 1 - Anticipation

It's been a while since I've been part of Saturday Spanking Blog Hop, however, that's about to change.  I've got a special treat that's just for this blog hop.  Using the rules of the blog hop, short excerpts, I'll be crafting a hot story of spankings.  Today we're starting with a bit of anticipation...

Scarlett Flame's Bound for Passion #BookTour

As many of you know, my blog is going through a period of change.  Starting on Sunday, February 16th I'll be posting weekly interviews with wonderful authors.  I'm very excited about this addition.  So excited that when Scarlett told me about her first book was going on tour, I knew I needed to start a little bit early and be apart of her blog tour.  Look for LB Shaw on the 16th and be sure to let me know what you think of this new series.

Today I’d like to welcome Scarlett Flame to Erotic Satisficition.  This English author tells erotic tales in many different sub-genres.  Although she can write one hot purely erotic story, she also knows how to add paranormal and steam punk motifs to great effect.  She has a brand new book, Bound for Passion that is currently available on Amazon and is worth your time.

Book Description:
When Vivienne sits inconsolable in the hospital chapel, the last encounter she expects is a fervent entanglement with an otherworldly being, as passions increase she learns for the first time in her life the true meaning of out of this world. In the second, Sarah meets a new lover after telling him all her intimate fantasies in an internet chat room. And, the final story concerns the journey a young woman takes, as a Dominant offers to show her the ropes, in exchange for her submission via BDSM. Individually these stories are hot, but together they are sizzling

John Satisfy:  Can you please tell us a little about yourself and what kinds of works you write?

Scarlett Flame:  Hi there I am a Children's Nurse and have a degree and a PgDip (Masters qualification) so probably not someone you would expect to write erotica. I love to read and write but only started writing seriously just over a year ago. I also love to go to the gym and work out, do Pilates and recently started pole dancing classes. I love to sing and also listen to others singing. I especially like to attend gigs and listen to the Indie bands in Manchester, and at that mostly in the Northern Quarter.

Although my debut novel is mostly short erotic stories ( one does have a fantasy, paranormal, sci fi elements) my work in progress (WIP) is a paranormal erotic romance set on a Steampunk world
