Hello Jaye! Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! It’s such a pleasure to chat with you. So tell me…
Q) What was the hardest (or easiest) scene to write? The easiest scenes to write are definitely the sex scenes! I love the challenge of making each scene a little bit different every time, finding new ways to offer my characters a lot of fun! I also like writing break up scenes, is that weird? I feel like the pain of experiencing a break up makes my characters feel all the more real.
Q) What type of research did you do for your book? I consulted an individual who taught classes at the Armory, a San Francisco based BDSM castle. The Armory is also home to a kink-themed pornography production company.
Q) What made this story special to you? I didn’t have any Valentine’s Day plans, so this book essentially became my Valentine and boy was it a hot one! I want a Jaxon Archer of my own. I guess that’s the beauty of being a writer.
Q) Do you have a favorite book you’ve written? Confessions of a Sex Demon, published by Beachwalk Press, is still near and dear to my heart because it was the first erotic romance I ever wrote. Confessions of a Sex Demon is about people that need climax to survive…something we can all relate to I think!
Q) Do you write in a linear fashion or do you jump from scene to scene and then go back and “fill in the blanks”? Both. With Confessions of a Sex Demon, I wrote the entire story from beginning to end in about a week. I wrote about ten hours a day. There was lots of coffee and champagne being consumed to get me through. With A Dom for Valentine’s Day, I did hop around. I wrote the first few chapters and then skipped to the end/climax and wrote the break up so I could understand the conflict/betrayal that the reader would need to be worked up to. I think in a very sexually-driven book like A Dom for Valentine’s Day, it’s important to make sure the plot and conflict is still strong.
