Today I welcome author Red Phoenix to my blog. Her newest release, “Brie Learns the Art of Submission” is available now from Amazon. Her book is broken down into two sections with alluring subtitles. In Tame, we find His Touch (Brie Learns to Obey), Marquis Gray’s Flogger (Brie Learns Her Power as a Submissive), and The Art of Kinbaku (Brie Embraces Bondage).
Notice how that was called Tame? It could refer to taming the submissive, but then again, it might just be a commentary on the type of erotic action you’ll find, especially when compared to Wicked, the next section. This one includes quite the sexual assortment: Warrior Fantasy (Brie Lives Her Fantasy), Chocolate (Brie Surrenders to His Will), and Her First DP (Brie on Display). Yup. I’m guessing the latter.
Red was kind enough to do an interview (above and beyond the call of duty, actually;).
So, without further ado, let’s get sexy with Red Phoenix.
First off, thanks for stopping over, Red! It’s great to have you here.
I’m curious—what got you interested in writing erotic romance?
I wanted to delve into self-publishing and thought short stories would be a great way to start. I had two characters in a romance novel I had written and I wanted to explore their more intimate lives. That was the basis for Loving Amy, my very first work of erotica.
What is your writing process like? Are you a planner? Pantster? What is your favorite writing tool or tip?
I let the muses carry the story. I know where we are headed, but they fill in the details as we go. It is exciting as the story unfolds and all the pieces come together. The more I write the easier it is for me to let go and allow the muses to carry me along.
My advice: Write, write, write! The more you do it the better you become. However, you cannot skip the editing process. No matter the brilliance of your story, you owe your readers a clean copy. (I started out self-editing.) I now have a professional editor and am going back to earlier stories and revising them. My fans deserve only the best.
Who are your favorite erotic romance authors right now and why?
Honestly, I try to stay away from reading other erotic books as much as possible. I do not want to be influenced by another writer’s style or storyline. I believe part of my allure is my unique voice and I don’t want to lose that.
How would you describe your writing style?
Let me have a fan speak for me: “I think I love this book as much as I do because we get to go right along with Brie. We get to sit through the classes with Mr. Gallant. The students ask all the questions that we would ask if we were sitting in the desk next to them. We get to hear his answers that are so detailed that we understand exactly what he is trying to teach us that day. Then they move to Practicum and we feel the trainer’s eyes on us, we feel the embarrassment when we get reprimanded, and the pride when they compliment. Then when they move into the auditorium for the final period of the day, we get the butterflies in our bellies from nervousness, the fear when they make us face something unknown, and the excitement when our fantasies are about to be fulfilled.” – Kayla
When it comes to choosing a fictional hero, what are your three must-haves? How about heroine?
For Him: Committed, real (not perfect), confident in himself. Her: Strong, intelligent, willing to meet life’s challenges and her own weaknesses.
If you could pick one weapon for a zombie fight, what would it be?
A sling shot.
Okay, last question. What is the most compelling reason you can give someone who has yet to read your work to pick up one of your books?
I write erotica to entice the mind and heart, as well as the loins. My intent is to draw you in so that you experience what the character is experiencing, feel their emotional ups and downs, and want to jump someone’s bones afterwards.
A noble goal! 🙂 Well, with that aim in mind, I leave you all with an excerpt from Brie Learns the Art of Submission!
From Warrior Fantasy (Brie Lives Her Fantasy):
His thrusts were strong and demanding. She had to remind herself to relax in order to take his entirety. She groaned as his speed and depth increased. He grabbed handfuls of her hair, grunting in his own pleasure while his tight pelvic muscles delivered repeated thrusts.
She could feel the burn on her back as they slowly inched across the carpet. It added to the brutish feel of their coupling. She wrapped her legs around his waist and cried out so the whole house could hear. “Rytsar, you’re too big!” she screamed loudly, adding, “But I like it, oh, yes…! You make it hurt so good.” Even though she knew he couldn’t understand, she suspected some of his friends spoke English and it pleased her to promote his manliness to the crowd in the other room.
He grasped her face in his hands and kissed her deeply while he consumed her with his body. The ridge of his shaft rubbed that area deep inside that made her legs quiver uncontrollably. She purred into his mouth as he brought her to the edge, but then he stopped. Rytsar pulled out, chuckling wickedly under his breath.
He turned Brie onto her stomach and grunted out a command she assumed meant ‘stay’. She lay on the carpet, breathless and needy. He came back to her less than a minute later and lay on top of her body with his rigid member between her butt cheeks. He lifted her pelvis up with one hand and pressed his lubricated cock against her ass.
