Miranda Baker is the author of the Come Again and Double Helix series for Samhain Publishing. A longtime reader of smut, she decided the best way to get her groove back after having three kids would be to write some. Exploring the world of BDSM on the page sparked a craving for real life experience, so she and her husband began switching. In her opinion, fantasy is less complicated than reality, but not nearly as rewarding. *wink*

What was the inspiration for your Come Again series?
I overheard a sexy sales girl in a condom shop waxing eloquent on the marvels of silicone-based lubricant, and Crystal, my bisexual psychic, was born. She works in a sex shop called Come Again, and her friends and co-workers inspired the other books in tMiranda Baker GirlTroublehe series. The Come Again girls run the gamut from straight to bisexual to gay, but all of them are kinky, in one way or another. The upcoming book in the series (March 2014) is called GIRL TROUBLE, and is a lesbian BDSM erotic romance. Writing such a wide variety of sexualities has been challenging in terms of building a niche with readers, but I believe love is love and sexy is sexy, all the way across the rainbow. My characters are who they are—just like the people I meet in real life.

Which is easier: writing kink or doing it?
Oh man, writing it, at least for this woman. I can command the psychology of my characters, and I can do research about BDSM. I can’t predict how I’m going to respond during a scene. I can’t control my husband when I’ve agreed to bottom. After fifteen years of marriage, we can finish each other’s sentences, but we can’t read each other’s minds. Fun kink requires communication, energy, and determination…at least for this couple. That’s why I’m so excited about BDSM Writers Con. My husband and I are attending together, and we plan to have fun while learning about our favorite form of recreation.

Top or botMiranda Baker PowerTriptom?
For me, that depends on the phase of the moon, how many deadlines I have, and whether I’m in the middle of writing a book or editing one. I don’t think it’s like that for everyone. When I get stressed out, I don’t enjoy having more demands placed on me. I want to top. When I’m writing a book, and I’m firmly in the creative zone, I like to brainstorm. I’ll do what I’m told and like it. Luckily, I don’t have to pick one or the other because my husband is an equal opportunity kinkster. He’s up for anything, which is how Chapter Ten of SoloPlay came into being. Yes, sideways/anal/fingers/pretzel position is physically possible. But my husband is still annoyed that I called him up to the bedroom to make sure, then sent him back down to watch the kids while I wrote the rest of the scene.

What are you presenting at the conference?
From the Books to the Bedroom: Bringing Fantasy to Life and Be Careful or You’ll End Up in My Novel:Miranda Baker TopStudent Using D/s experience to write the Next Book. Shocking, right? I’m very much looking forward to over-sharing and picking my co-presenters brains. Cris Anson, Leia Shaw, and Desiree Holt, be warned! I’m looking for inspiration…

What’s next?
A total freebie! When I was writing GIRL TROUBLE, there were a few scenes that didn’t fit into the timeline, but I got excited every time I thought about writing them. Destiny and Johnny from BOTTOMS UP teaching Bonita’s girlfriend how to be a Domme?  I wanted toMiranda Baker Bottoms Up be a fly on the wall for that. I thought readers might want to be there, too. Samhain Publishing has graciously agreed to release TOP STUDENT as a free prequel to GIRL TROUBLE. So…if a forty page BDSM sex scene that segues from m/f to f/f to f/f to m/f/f sounds like fun to you, order it wherever fine kinky e-books are sold!

Marla Monroe

 

Marla is a fabulous author with a gift for writing and making your heart soar with excitement. With over sixty books, there’s one…or more… perfect for everyone.

 

We wanted you to get to know Marla Monroe a little more so we asked her a few questions. Feel free to post your own in our comments section. She’d love to hear from you.

With so many conferences to choose from, what made you choose to attend BDSM Writers Con?
I think it will be fascinating to talk to other writers about the subject and learn more about it from those who
practice/live the lifestyle. There are more flavors of BDSM and Kink than most people are aware of. There is no right or wrong way as long as it’s SS&C. We are all unique and need different things in our lives for pleasure, comfort, safety, and growth. No one is exactly the same, so a lifestyle can’t be exactly the same to work for everyone. Plus, it’s always relaxing to be able to be myself in a group of people who share some of my interests and, well, kinks!

What has been your most interesting and difficult scene to write?
The emotional ones are the most difficult for me. I want them to convey that intense feeling of need and how each of the characters in the scene are feeling and what the interaction means to each of them. Just saying “it felt good” or “she came” doesn’t say anything about their emotional, psychological and intellectual status and growth. When I get one to where I feel it is right, I’m usually worn out and even emotional myself. That’s a good feeling.

Do you only write BDSM or do you have other themes or genres?
I write whatever my characters tell me to write. I’m a writing submissive in that my characters are in charge. I have everything from Cowboys to Bikers to Space Station as well as Contemporary and even a type of post-apocalyptic series. My BDSM series is Knights in Black Leather but many of my other series have BDSM of some type in several of the books. I easily identify with the subject and enjoy writing it.

Marla Monroe has been writing professionally for about eleven years now. Her first book with Siren was published in January of 2011. At this time, she has over 60 books available. She loves to write and spends every spare minute either at the keyboard or reading. She writes everything from sizzling-hot contemporary cowboys, emotionally charged BDSM, and dangerously addictive shifters to science fiction ménages with the occasional badass biker thrown in for good measure.

Marla lives in the southern US and works full-time at a busy hospital. When not writing, she loves to travel, spend time with her cats, and read. She’s always eager to try something new and especially enjoys the research for her books. She loves to hear from readers about what they are looking for next in their reading adventures.

Laci Paige

I met Laci Paige and her husband when she attended my 3-Day BDSM Intensive Workshop last year, what was to become BDSM Writers Con.

She’s a wonderful fun loving person who has a lot to of creativity and playfulness to her personality. I’m sure you’ll love the stories she writers.

Below are a few questions we asked Laci to help you get to know her.

What got you started in writing BDSM ?

A couple of years ago I was looking for something to read, and came across a few free reads on Amazon about the BDSM lifestyle. I was intrigued. So I read them and became even more intrigued. I wanted to know more. I hit the internet – reading blogs, interviewing people, reading books, and attending events and conferences all in the name of research.

Why are you attending BDSM Writers Con ?
I’ve attended events before for romance and/or erotic authors, but never a BDSM specific event until summer of 2013 when I attended Dr. Charley’s BDSM for Writers Workshop. I enjoyed it, and learned a lot. It’s very specific, where everyone has something in common, whether it’s living the lifestyle, reading about it, or writing it, we all have common ground. I look forward to learning more at this year’s BDSM Writers Con 2014, and mingling with like-minded authors & fans.

What did you think of your first experience to Dr. Charley’s BDSM education?
I thought it was an excellent experience. I learned the in’s-and-out’s from experienced people. It helped me with my writing, and believe it or not, my personal life too. From the basics on up, Dr. Charley covered a wide range of the lifestyle dynamics, as well as lining up some pretty awesome guest speakers – who also write and live the lifestyle.

Do you take hints on stories from fans?
I can say that I read all of my reviews, comments on my social media, and messages from my inbox. I don’t get story ideas from my fans, but sometimes if they question things it prompts me to do more research. I did have a few people comment on something specific in one of my books, and after asking around the answer was 50/50 so I actually revised and tweaked my story because of the strong response on both sides of it.

What story have you always wanted to write but haven’t?
There are so many things in my head that I want to write but haven’t, that I don’t know where to start. The past year I’ve enjoyed reading m/m. So that might be my next venture.
Laci Paige is author of the Silken Edge Series. The books are a fictitious series about a group of people who are into the BDSM scene. Each book follows a different couple as they grow and learn to discover more about themselves in the lifestyle, and their relationships.

The Silken Edge won an UP Author Award, and has hit the #1 spot twice on Amazon for Erotica. Laci’s stories always end with HEA or HFN, and her husband is always a willing participant when she needs some hands-on research.
