Bianca is a great new friend of mine, we both write for the same house and its been a pleasure getting to know her. I’ve asked her to answer a few questions so that you can get a sneak peak into her mind. After you read them, you can go over to amazon and one-click her book babies for a quick, HOT read!
1.When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I had a teacher in middle school who encouraged me, but that was mainly my passion for poetry, which I write and publish under my “real” name.
I first wanted to write erotic fiction when I was dared to by members of a local writers group. I had been complaining about a book that I borrowed from the library that was labelled as steampunk, but was actually vampire erotica with steam powered technology in the background—very disappointing. I was dared by two ladies in the group to try and do better, so I did.
2.How long does it take you to write a book?
I write short novelletes (for now) so it really only takes me about a week or two to write one, if I stay focused and don’t let myself get distracted by a million other projects.
(J’s Comments– I don’t know about you, but sometimes I find the novella lengths are harder to weave together than the longer works! A few weeks is great timing!)
3.What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
I currently work three part-time jobs, so usually it’s go to work, come home, take care of the kids and family things, then try to crank out a few thousand words in the evening, ignoring all the work I had to take home with me. Sometimes I can get away with writing a page or two at work on break, but that’s difficult.
(J’s Comments– Damn lady you are so busy! Thanks for finding time to bring us such sexy men and beautiful women to share our nights with)
4.Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
I’m very bad at coming up with ideas, so I usually just read calls for submission and try to follow them. That, or I browse my friends’ Facebook pages and see what sort of memes pop up, and try to write to those fetishes.
5.What does your family think of your writing?
I think those that know are politely embarrassed. They don’t mention it to their friends, and consider it at best a side project and at worse a phase that they hope I grow out of. Arguably, I haven’t received my first royalty check yet, so they might believe that this is worth pursuing when they see that it can be lucrative.
(J’s Comments– Those checks are killer to wait on! But it’ll come and they will be screaming your name to all their dirty friends, lets be honest…everyone has dirty friends who wanna read this kinda stuff!)
6.How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I’ve got three that are out right now. I like all of them for different reasons. I think “The Fireman’s Ball” is the most romantic, so I like that aspect of it. I think “A Panther in the Shadows” is the sexiest, and really like the aggressive protagonist in that one. I think “The Naughty List” is the riskiest, so I can’t wait to see how audiences react to it.
(J’s Comments– Ohhh I didn’t know about the Naughty List! Let us know when its out so we can all pick it up! )
11.Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
Most of my readers are fellow authors, and they’re all very positive. I did receive one very loving and generous fan letter, which was so kind and complimentary that I want to feature the woman who wrote it in an upcoming book; I firmly believe kind fans deserve sexy book boyfriends and wild book sex. Most of the reactions I get for my books are through reviews, though. I wish I knew what my readers thought, and what sorts of books they’d like to see from me in the future. It would certainly bolster my confidence.
Be sure to go pick up Binaca’s titles and enjoy them as much as I did! The Fireman’s Ball — http://www.amazon.com/dp/B011VGX2VU/
