AUTHOR INTERVIEW WITH KYLE VACHON:

“I don’t want my books to be remembered as great literature. I want them to be remembered as amazing experiences.”

How did you start writing erotica?

I wouldn’t consider my writing “erotica” per say, but I can say I played with the idea of it in my novel, Avenging Roses. So if that counts, 2013 was the year that novel was officially established.

When you sold your first book, how did you celebrate?

I invited a friend over to have some drinks. This was when I was out in California, when I discovered the lulu website, which I no longer use and we were talking about doing a series and me working on some other genres, and that’s when I made the decision to dwell in other realms.

What’s your favorite published work of yours and why?

Currently? I have one book published and it’s by far the best book I’ve written.  Sid Jones: Dissent Is Not Treason was technically a “sequel” that I had worked on for YEARS and I decided to make it a solid stand alone instead. The original Sid Jones book will be released, probably sometime next year.

How do you handle all the screaming fans?

I don’t have “screaming fans” but I do have fans. I would like to take the time, and thank all seven of them! You guys are the best!

What erotic authors do you enjoy reading?

I’ll be honest, I don’t read “erotic novels” and not because I have anything personal against the genre, it’s just not what I’m looking for in a novel.  My goal was to make an attempt at writing one, because I want to be a “well rounded author” and not specialize in any one genre. I’d rather be a jack of all trades, and leave being a master of a genre to the likes of Stephen King and J.K Roweling. I wanted to go my own way.

Have you had any “crazy fan” experiences? If so, what happened?

It’s not a crazy fan experience, but I have this friend that enjoys reading my work and will call me up to tell me how awesome the books are. The crazy part? It would be midnight or even 2am and I’ll wake up to messages and missed calls from them.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

The short answer is; everywhere and everyone. I actually have a disclaimer that comes with Dissent Is Not Treason. If I know you, or you’ve done something to me, or someone I know, it’s fair game. The people that impact me both in a positive and negative way are free game. No mercy, no quarter hell, I’ll even use real names. There’s a couple of actual moments that happened to me in the depths of the novel. You just have to figure out for yourself, what’s real and what’s fiction.

Do you have any unusual writing rituals?

I like to write in the morning, and at night. I have to have a Vivarin shout out to them for making amazing caffeine pills! I like to have a cigarette after I get a few pages done, and when I write at night, I like to have a little bit of a buzz. That’s when the truth comes out. Everything is scheduled. When I need to do an action packed scene, it has to be in the morning. At night, is when the dialogue comes into play and a lot of things I’ve repressed, or didn’t feel like should be in the novel, truly vanquishes.

Where’s your favorite place to write?

Not around people, or noise is my preference. Unless, I have a co-writer and we’re writing side by side, which never happens.

What advice would you give to future writers in this genre?

Utilize your gift and vent. Don’t hold back. The best thing to do is write when you can, and when you’re not writing, think about what you’re writing. If You have an idea, make sure you WRITE IT DOWN OR YOU WILL FORGET! I promise you will! If you have an idea for a novel, record it on your phone, write it down on a napkin, scribble it somewhere ANYWHERE! People might think you’re crazy, but trust me THOSE IDEAS YOU GET ARE THE BEST! Also, remember the late Wes Craven’s quote: The first monster you must introduce your audience to, is you.

Who is your favorite character from one of your stories and why?

This will probably be the longest part of this interview. Go get some popcorn, have a smoke, mix a drink, cause you’re gonna need it. Sid Jones is my favorite character, period. When I find myself in a situation that I shouldn’t be in, or my back is against the wall, I think to myself, “What would Sid Jones do?” And I immediately act. No second thoughts. I have done things, most people would wish they hadn’t, and I did it because I knew that if I didn’t I’d regret it later. I don’t emulate idols, I emulate this character. He has been there for me, in not just my writing, but every day life.

True story. I use to work at Planet Fitness, in Okemos, Michigan. My sister’s boyfriend, now fiance, got in my face at work. Mind you, I was only a chapter in my Dissent Is Not Treason novel, at that time. My sister’s worst half is probably 6’2 and he was the fitness trainer. That should give you an idea of what me, my whole 150 pound, standing at a 5’5 measured up to. Instead of backing down, or going for a swing, I asked my self the previous question and I smirked. He grabbed me, left marks on my neck from his nails. We both got fired, and my only regret was that I didn’t break his face on my way out.

Sid went from being a character, to a hero of mine. Someone I look up to, and instead of waiting on a new album, a new interview, or a video to show up someplace, I can just sit and write, or have a conversation with him in my head. He’s the perfect blend of Holden Caulfield, Roger Miret of Agnostic Front, and Negan from The Walking Dead. It’s a special gift to have a character like that and think about when you’re in a situation that makes you nervous, or scared, or even excited. You do what you want, deal with the consequences later, and be better for it. That’s what Sid Jones is all about.

Do your friends and family know what you do, and if so, what was their reaction when they found out?

My mother wasn’t surprised. When I was in Kindergarten, my teacher told her that I was going to be the next Stephen King. My dad was excited, but he wasn’t surprised either. My family knows how crazy I am, and they know how determined I am. I’m the guy that went into the Occupy Movement and was there in Oakland, California for the general strike. I took a random trip from New Hampshire to New York City to go see Public Image LTD. I had no idea where the venue was and I just started walking in a direction. It was the best night of my life, and thanks to my first Sid Jones novel, I did it. So after all the crazy things I did outside of my writing, me doing anything at all, came as no surprise.

After you tell your parents you got a job as an exotic dancer, anything after that won’t really shock them. Trust me.

What was your ideal career when you were a child?

Much like today, I always changed my mind. I was going to be a vet, what kid wasn’t going to be, right? Then, of course a paleontologist. After that, I wanted to be a fuck up. That’s what happens when you’re 13 and you’re going through 13 year old things. I had no aspirations, and no real dreams.

What do you enjoy most about writing erotica?

Again, if we’re talking about Avenging Roses and the erotica scenes, I think it was the fact that I never wrote like that before. I mean, every book has sex scenes, but Avenging Roses felt different to me. I can say I dabbled with it, and learned something. I think that’s a huge benefit to challenging yourself in the art that you master.

How do you get yourself in the mood to write?

Music. I HAVE TO HAVE MUSIC! I need to have a cigarette, have a drink, or caffeine and rock out to music. Music is a huge piece in my Sid Jones novels because I use songs for foreshadowing and insinuation. It’s not just the way song sounds to fit the scene and the “mental cinematography” but it’s to give the reader’s a chance to read between the lines.

What’s the best writing tip you’ve ever been given?

Don’t give up. EVERY single teacher I had, from Ms. Simmons, in second grade, to my high school English teachers, Mr. Bentley and Mr. Beck said those words to me. Matter of fact, it was Mr. Bentley and Mr. Beck that paved my way into wanting to be a writer. When I was a kid, I just liked writing, I never thought of it for a career. Those teachers helped me every step of the way. Shout out to them.

If you get writer’s block when you’re writing, how do you get around it?

You know the meme that gets passed around a lot? Writer’s block is when you’re characters stop talking to you? Well, that’s what I prevent from happening. As long as I have Sid, I have a story. As long as I have people I can’t stand, I won’t run out of things to write about. From the White House to obnoxious YouTubers. The hard part, and the challenge I set up for myself, which puts me in a writer’s block is when I lay out a conflict for my character, and I want to take the audience by surprise. In order to do that, I have to surprise myself. So I have to plan and take breaks, concentrate and be strategic, as if it’s happening to me.

If you could bring one of your characters to life, which one would it be and why?

I DID bring Sid Jones to life. He’s become my alter-ego so to speak. You can interview him if you’d like. I’m sure he’d love to speak with you.

Which author, erotic or otherwise would you love to meet and why?

J.D Salinger. Want another fucked up story? Remember that teacher, Mr. Bentley I told you about? Well, he suggested a book to me just before I went off to college. I was accepted and everything. And then I read Catchet in the Rye. My world changed. No joke, I lived by that book. From dropping out of college, to taking a trip to New York City and moving to New Hampshire. The year I started writing my Sid Jones novel, was the year J.D Salinger died. Where was he when he passed? New Hampshire. That’s where he was hiding out. How’s that for a mind fuck?

What’s your favorite genre within erotica and why?

There are different genres under erotica? No kidding! I honestly, had no idea! Learned something new, and here I thought I was the one that was going to drop knowledge….well played!

What are you working on at the moment?

Well, I have decided to stick with this title, and I was going to announce it a little later, but I’ll give you the EXCLUSIVE! It’s titled Sid Jones: Eaten Alive. The cover art is beautiful. Fun fact: The cover and title was established before the third chapter was even completed. I’d like to thank Brianna Blaney for doing the cover for me! She’s going to have a special thanks in the upcoming novel. Cheers Brianna!

Do you do live book signings? Are you willing to?

I haven’t, but I’d never say no. With the condition that the first place I do live autograph signings is Conway, New Hampshire where Sid currently resides, and the town I’ll always call home. That’s my only condition, other than that I’ll fly out to Russia and sign books there, as long as Conway, New Hampshire is my first stop.

What’s the biggest writing challenge you’ve ever taken on? Did you succeed?

There’s a book that I’ve finished, that’s being looked over titled The Crossovers. It’s a supernatural kind of book, and I really don’t care for the metaphysical stuff. I really don’t, it’s a plot hole filler all around. Anything you do in that realm can be fixed with unrealistic solutions, because it is unrealistic. So the Crossovers was the biggest challenge and I’m proud to say that it’s finished, I succeeded. It should be available sometime next year.

What’s your biggest writing achievement? Why?

Sid Jones. I know, people will probably get sick and tired of hearing about him, but if it wasn’t for that character, this interview wouldn’t be happening. I owe everything to that guy.

Do you have an events schedule we can share?

I have an official release date for my next book. It’s called The Reapers and it’ll be out October 1st. I’ve got a cover that I’ve made, it’s in editing right now. Think the Devil’s Rejects meets Reservoir Dogs. It’s a dark comedy horror and it was the only novel I didn’t use an outline for. I just wrote everything off the top of my head. After the Reapers, we’ll see which book comes out next. It’ll either be The Crossovers, or it’ll be Sid Jones: The High School Years. Honestly, that’s up to the readers though. Your dollar IS your vote. If I sell more copies of The Reapers than I do Dissent Is Not Treason, I’ll have to decide which one gets put out next. I need the Reapers to have an opportunity and for the readers to know that I’m not a master of any genre, but that I can write anything. I think every author has that one character, or that one book that is their pride and joy. It can’t just be me.

So the Reapers October 1st! I’m excited! I hope you’re all excited, and I hope you’ll all enjoy a free download of my novel Avenging Roses!

Bossed BY Sloane Howell

My Thoughts:

OMG! Hottest story EVER! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. And, I was (over) eagerly waiting to purchase the actual book on release day! (So, I could re-read OVER AND OVER!) This is the hottest story Sloane has written. It was completely adorable, fun and sexy as hell! I spent as much time panting and sweating, as I did fussing at the characters for their crazy antics. I was putty in his hands through the entire story! Five stars definitely doesn’t do this book justice! I am going to be right here refreshing my screen constantly until Sloane releases ANYTHING else after this one!!

Synopsis:

He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.

“Wonderfully witty and fresh, Bossed is a must-read for anyone who loves a sassy, modern heroine and an in-charge alpha hero.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

Bossed is sexy. And by that, we mean sexy. Like 18+ sexy. This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Synopsis:

I live my life hard, fast and with precise control, exactly the way I like to fuck. I don’t take orders, I give them, that’s just how I am. I had the perfect life, a thriving business and a new piece of ass in my bed whenever I wanted. That was until she told me she was pregnant, then everything changed.
I spent months preparing our dream home and endless nights talking to my unborn child. I thought I had it all in the palm of my hands until one fateful night when everything slipped through my fingers, only to blur the edges of my life. Now, all I was left with was rage living deep within my bones that I felt would never leave.

Until…Madison Tanner came crashing into my world.

Life was going to be different, challenges that’d overwhelmed us from the beginning were going to be solved. Little did I know it would only get worse in other areas of life, which had me wondering if we’d made the right move. Then one tragic night changed the path of my future.
As I began to pick up the pieces of my shattered world and move on, it all started to crumble as bits of his secret life began to surface. But now something is lurking behind the darkness, haunting me at every turn. I fear for my life thinking I’ll never feel safe again.

Until…Lane Collins came storming into my world.

Dark Edges by Kane Caldwell

My thoughts:

Amazing! HOT! I love a story that plays with my emotions, and this one had me EXPERIENCING them! When the characters were hot, so. was. I! I laughed out loud, teared up and my heart thundered several times. Five stars? No…that doesn’t even cover what I would rate this book! I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going on with the husband, only to say…DANG! Now, THAT was a bit unexpected! LOVED this story so much! I can’t wait to read more stories from Mr. Caldwell!!

Synopsis:

I’m not your good ole boy or boy-next-door type of guy.
If that’s what you’re looking for, I suggest you move on. I curse a lot, work too fucking much, and keep to myself. My edges are hard, rough, and even dark at times.
I never thought I would wind up in the business I’m in. I may not always play by the rules, but I go where the money is, keep my nose clean, and my affairs organized.
Who knew one fucking e-mail would change everything in my controlled life. I swore I’d never touch a case like hers again, but there was something intriguing behind every word I read.
She had my attention, she would have my services, but I never thought she’d steal my heart.
My name is Chase Black, owner of Dark Edges PI.

I’m your good girl and I once had everything.
A big beautiful house with a view of gorgeous mountains, an expensive car, stress-free job, a wardrobe any woman would die for, but one thing was missing…the ever-absent husband.
I never expected to be in the position I’m in, but I needed answers.
I sent one e-mail thinking I would figure it all out. It wasn’t the route I intended to take. The life I’d been living was a lie and he gave me the answers I needed. What happened next I wasn’t prepared for.
He had my information, he took the case, but I never thought he’d capture my heart.
My name is Naomi McAllister, owner of a broken heart.

White Knight Dom Academy: The Beginning BY Lucian Bane

Synopsis:

Lucian and Tara have survived the Dom Wars but can they survive reigning as Mr. and Mrs. Dildo USA?

Maybe they could if they weren’t having to do it in Gramma’s stuck up religious home-town. All they have to do is train vanilla couples in the art of Dominance and submission–and sell one of every item in Gladiator’s adult-toy catalog within a certain time frame.

Not to fear, Steve comes to the rescue once again, only this time, he brings his wife who has addictions you would never guess.

And failing is not an option. If they’re to collect all of their winnings, they must comply with these terms. But if they’re going to keep the family name in tact and not get Gramma booted from her own home-town, they need to pull off their kink-heist without getting caught.

Let the games continue.
