BDSMMasters

 

Kally portrait IMG_4937 croppedJen:  It’s the final day of our look into BDSM novels and today’s guest is Kallypso Masters.  Kally, will you share a short bio with us?
Kally: Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees-having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. (After writing as a “hobby” for 30 years, it was the only job she thought she might be good at and needed to be successful at something fast or go in search of another day job.) She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog.

Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group”).  Kally also visits the Fetlife “Rescue Me! discussion group” on occasion, but since she works one-on-one with her BDSM experts now, she doesn’t have to go on FetLife as often as she once did). She hopes to meet you in her future travels whether virtually or in-person! If you meet her face to face, be sure to ask for a Kally’s friend button!

To join the secret Facebook group Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group, please send a friend request to Karla Paxton (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004338888051&fref=ts) and she will open the door for you. Must be 18 to join.

Shoshanna Evers’s Top Five Sexy Doms in Erotic Romance…

5. Gideon Cross

Bared to You by Sylvia Day. That tortured soul, that commanding voice… yes, please!

4. Christian Grey

50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Yes, sometimes he’s stalker-y, but this is fiction, after all. When he struts around the Red Room, I’m all his. For some readers, 50 Shades of Grey was their first time reading BDSM erotica, and it opened up a whole new world of books to so many women! Personally, I’ve been reading BDSM erotica since I picked up The Story of O and the Sleeping Beauty Series (Anne Rice) at age 13, and my first BDSM erotic romance was published in 2010 — so when this trilogy came out, I was super excited to see our genre going mainstream!! I will always be grateful to E.L. James for bringing my favorite subgenre into the light.

BDSMHannahPeach
Final Author PicJen: Today we kick off BDSM week with a visit from Hanna Peach. Hanna, will you share a short bio with us?
Hanna: Hanna began to write at the tender age of seven, starting with a daring and questionable autobiography entitled Go Suck a Lemon. Perhaps it was a little before its time.

After leaving school she agreed with everyone who said she needed to get a degree and a real job to become a proper adult. She kept writing as a hobby. After starting (and never finishing) several degrees and switching from multiple careers, she finally decided that being a real adult was overrated. In 2012, she sold everything, moved to Europe and began to write full-time.

Eternally restless, Hanna has lived in Indonesia, Australia, Germany and Scotland. She is currently residing in England.

She is addicted to coffee and chocolate and would one day like to own a dragon.

Humorous Dating Advice from the TEXAS WILDCAT

(Ghostwritten by Adrienne deWolfe for You-Know-Who)

Editor’s Note:  Still pining for a date this weekend?  No problem.  Sheep rancher Bailey McShane, the (aptly named) TEXAS WILDCAT from Adrienne deWolfe’s award-winning Wild Texas Nights series, is here to share her secrets for catching a mate!

Howdy, gals!  Bailey here.

Now don’t you be moping around the homestead ‘cause some clueless male didn’t ask you to a fandango.  I got plenty of experience roping stud ponies – ‘specially the two-legged kind.  So listen up.

First off, don’t pay any mind to the prissy missies, like that Amaryllis Larabee, who set her cap for my Zack.  The prissies would have you believe that a real lady puts on lacy pink frou-frou, totters around on stilts, and bats her eyelashes hard enough to set a prairie schooner sailing.
