Guest Post: Interview with S. Nano for Mistress of the Air

How long have you been writing for?

I started writing in 2006 quite late in life, having not done any creative writing since my school days, which was many years ago! I was inspired to take up writing by a dungeon mistress I served for a number of years who was skilled at creating scenes, assuming different characters and improvising. Initially the stories I wrote would get woven into the sessions this imaginative dominatrix conducted. After a few years, I thought my stories deserved a wider audience so I began contributing them to the Literotica writing site. Then I went a step further and began submitting stories to publishers and had some accepted. My first published work was the story ‘Lord Nano’s Nemesis’, about a ghostly highwaywoman, which appeared in the Xcite anthology Dark Desires in 2011. Since then I’ve had a book and numerous short stories and novellas published, Mistress Of The Air being my second full length novel.

Guest Post: Interview with Janine Ashbless – In Bonds of Earth

I am delighted to have Janine Ashbless back here on my blog. The first time was for Cover Him with Darkness, a dark erotic romance novel about angels (you can read that interview again or indeed for the first time). I enjoyed Cover Him With Darkness so much that when the opportunity to read the next in the series and grill Janine about writing it I leapt at it (though I worry I got too enthusiastic and probing in my questions, but Janine has been a most gracious interviewee – thank you!)

Guest Post: Interview with Giacomo Lee

Funereal coverToday I have a different kind of guest interview. Normally I feature other erotica writers, but for change, I’ve invited my friend Giacomo Lee to talk his new novel Funereal, which is set in present day South Korea (a current interest of mine, sparked by… well, if you were paying attention when I did my Gentlemen of Intriguing Appearance series you might know why.)

Before the interview, first, a blurb about Funereal.

Throw yourself a funeral. But will it make you happy?

Soobin Shin is an aspiring young woman in a near-future version of Seoul. Ever since her college graduation, she has struggled to escape from her dead-end job in a doughnut chain. Her twin sister Hyewon is one of Korea’s most recognizable models, but Soobin just can’t seem to find her lucky break… until one evening, a creepy regular customer offers her a job in a company he has just started. OneLife Korea is going to save South Korea one funeral at a time… by burying the living in order to help them find some peace of mind in the country with the highest suicide rate in the developed world.

Soobin has already lost her mother, and her relationship with her boyfriend is on the rocks. What else does she have to lose? Everything at OneLife Korea seems perfect until high-profile clients actually start dying. Soobin Shin is Korea’s beautiful new angel of death, and Funereal is a snapshot of a city in flux, taking a look at the dark side to surgery, survival, and stardom in the near future of one of Asia’s most dynamic capitals.
