Welcome to my The Next Big Thing Blog Hop, the hop where authors interview themselves about a work in progress, or a recently published work. Like most things I do to myself, I’m awesome at it. Here it goes:
1: What is the working title of your book?
Dakota Gets Spanked!
2: Where did the idea come from for the book?
I decided to go high-brow with a spanking story. I kid! I have romances and comedy stories under development, and I needed a quick dip into something lewd and lascivious to get back to my roots. Fans kept writing that they wanted to see my heroines paddled for being so naughty… so in this next ebook the naughty young Dakota is paddled like a river boat.
3: What genre does your book fall under?
Porn. It’s not even erotica! This is a one-act sex-play. The girl walks in, the dude spanks her. By the time he’s done spanking her, he’s no longer an alcoholic. This is raw, down and dirty, bad-girl-gets-whupped stuff, or what my gym coach called “Private Study Hall.”
4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
COLIN FARRELL would need to be miscast as my portly older gentleman. If he was method-acting, he could shave his head and pretend he had male pattern baldness. As long as he doesn’t touch the eyebrows, he’d still be hot.
For the naughty young girl… there are so many hollywood ingeneues who I would like to bend over a desk and punish.
FREIDA PINTO has nice teeth but I don’t know if she’d look sexy crying.
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY would probably have a good, confused, lip-biting look when the spanking started.
MEGAN FOX—Confession time… I’d probably let her get to the casting couch. Then I’d personally give her an audition. And that audition would involve some slapping and maybe some crying. We would both be exhausted, and emotionally cleansed afterward. Neither of us would ever speak of that audition again. But I couldn’t use Megan for my story… the plot would lose all subtlety!
Final choice? Who am I kidding! CHRISTINA RICCI… sexy, teasy, a little torn up, and never anything less than fascinating to watch. She is just brave and strange enough to do a one-act spanking story. Remember her as a neurotic nymphomanic in Black Snake Moan?
5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Billingham Academy has a big book of rules, and Dakota St. Millay is about to discover the one for sexy, naughty eighteen-year-old delinquents.
6: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Lindsey’s latest hit will be published by the Lindsey, Bedder publishing firm. Which is like saying “self-published” because it’s still Lindsey… except she gets to talk about herself in the third person. The release is slated for this month of this year.
7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
As with most of my fetish efforts, I spent an inordinate amount of time doing research. Once, on vacation, I was so very naughty I needed multiple spankings, but I knew I was doing it all for my readers. And my husband. Everybody else at the Bed and Breakfast was traumatized.
8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
My story Dakota Gets Spanked! shares a common theme with other Amazon erotic ebooks like Jill Gets Spanked and The Naughty Babysitter gets Spanked, but it is quite different from Hannah Gets Spanked (Again).
9: Who or What inspired you to write this book?
This is for all the guys who wanted to spank me over the years. It took a while, but I finally get it! I’d thank them by name if I could, but we didn’t really have that kind of interaction, and besides, names were not allowed at The Mansion.
10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The sub-plot is about alcoholism and redemption, but that’s only one or two sentences. The story is mostly about the spanking, and if you want the story to really work, you have to imagine CHRISTINA RICCI wearing boy’s cut panties. Got her locked in? Good. Now add COLIN FARRELL with an itchy hand.
Who is next?
This blog hop might be winding down. I am supposed to designate who will carry on The Next Big Thing Blog Hop next week… but I think the erotica world is running out of authors! I have a few friends I can tap and if they agree, I will list them below.
