Folks, our beloved bus broke down on the way to Unbound this morning – we suspect it had something to do with trying to cross the Atlantic. Although it might also have been the incessant singing of ‘Come on, Get Happy!’ At any rate, until we finish pushing it over to Unbound, we will be holding the third stop of our tour back here at Zhadi’s Den. So please spread the word! Oh, and warning… this post holds some explicit sex, so if you see smoke coming off of the screen, keep the kids away! Now take it away, Lisa!!!
What is it about writing you enjoy so much?
EM Lynley: I love creating the characters and getting to know them as I plan and write. It makes writing so much easier. It’s wonderful when I’m writing and suddenly one of them does something I wasn’t planning. Then I know I’ve created a well-rounded character who readers will enjoy and come to care about as much as I do.
Isabel Roman: I love playing in the imagination sandbox.
Inara LaVey: It’s the ultimate power trip. “I created you, I can destroy you! BWAHAHAHAHAH!!!!” J Plus it’s just plain fun.
C. Margery Kempe: I am a god! I make the world, cause people to fall in love (or lust) and create out of nothing. What could be better than that?
Angela Cameron: I love everything about it really. Even the tough things are fun or make me bring more of myself to the job than I’d thought I could. It’s not only an art that I can share with others, but a craft that forces me to grow as an artist. The most fun, however, is talking to readers who know my fantasy worlds and have as much fun there as I do.
Elle Amery: This question makes me laugh! In what other industry can someone earn money by snuggling with a cat on their couch and daydreaming?
Sèphera Girón: I’m not sure. I think it’s the ability to live in other worlds and to meet new characters. I enjoy the process of stringing words together and I like to entertain.
Neve Black: Eroticism especially is a true freedom of expression.
Excerpt from Lust in Space:
Sleep came quickly. Nora dreamt she was back on Earth, moving along a warm
beach. She wore a long, flowing white dress that danced in the light, salty breeze. Nora walked along the shoreline, feeling the sand between her toes and the cool ocean water rushing up over her feet. Seagulls flew overhead, calling to one another and fighting over bits of fish and carrion.
“Hey,” a man’s voice said, startling Nora as he came up from behind.
Nora quickly turned, then smiled at the sight of a young, robust man standing before her. He had shoulder-length, sun-bleached hair, dark tan, and thick arms. His bare chest was firm and muscular, his stomach flat. Swimming trunks hanging loosely around his hips created a terrible tease.
“Hi,” Nora said nervously.
“So, this is Earth?” the man asked, taking in the stunning scenery.
“Yes,” Nora replied.
“It’s lovely,” he said. He gazed into Nora’s eyes. “The people are lovely, too.”
“This is a dream,” Nora said, working to make sense of the lucid scenario..
“In a way,” he corrected. “Your ship has entered Tantra space. I’m Jorre. I thought we might get to know one another.”
“You speak my Earth dialect?” she asked.
“I know everything you know. I’m inside your mind.”
“Oh. I feel at a slight disadvantage. I don’t know anything about you. Will we be able to meet, in person?”
“This is it,” Jorre said. “The Tantra have evolved past the need for physical bodies, but we’re still always eager to meet and learn from new life forms.”
Nora looked at Jorre skeptically.
“I can assure you that I’m very real,” he said. “You have something I need, just like I have something you need.”
“And what is that?”
Jorre took Nora into his arms and kissed her. His tongue was firm and sweet as it
danced through her mouth. The feel of his chest against Nora’s body was calming and arousing, sending her mind reeling as he lifted her dress and caressed her long legs. Nora went wet at his touch.
They lowered their bodies to the damp, compact sand. Cool, shallow water swirled around them as they kissed and held onto each other. Nora pulled off Jorre’s trunks and paused to admire his perfect, hard cock. Her body swelled at the thought of feeling him inside her, hot and thick.
Jorre moved against her, making Nora desperate for more. He put a hand between her legs and tore away her wet panties. The ocean whisked them away.
Nora swelled more as Jorre’s fingers penetrated her, rubbing and contorting within her. She grabbed his cock, marveled at its length and width, and stroked it with uncontrolled desire.
“Please, I need to feel you,” she begged.
Jorre continued to pleasure her with his fingers, seemingly amused. “You want me to fuck you?”
“I want to hear you say it.”
“I need you to fuck me!” she bellowed, writhing desperately, spreading her legs and raking her fingers into the sand.
Nora lay on her discarded dress as Jorre rose between her legs, moving up against her and filling her forcefully. She thrust to meet him. Her breath shook as their bodies met. Nora wrapped her legs around Jorre’s firm body as he pumped into her, enthusiastically and fervently, each move taking her further toward blissful abandon. She rested her head against the sand, the water ebbing and flowing through her hair as it rushed over her. Jorre drilled into her with heavy, violent thrusts. Nora went limp, unable to keep up. She whimpered in blissful agony. He held her down as climax took her, her body going weak and her mind reeling. Nora moaned and wailed as Jorre continued to drive into her, taking her deep and hard.
“No more!” she cried, realizing that he had her by the arms. Her orgasm was
suddenly too much for her to bear.
But Jorre’s grip only grew tighter. He secured Nora tightly against the sand as he
reveled in her exasperation. He breathed heavily and his eyes rolled back as she
