KMQ Interview: Alice in the Attic (#8Authors)

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 11.17.17 PMI love talking to Rose Caraway. A few months ago, I spoke with her in-studio for the release of the Sexy Librarian’s Dirty 30, vol. 1. It was a great experience – one that I didn’t realize I’d be lucky enough to repeat so soon.

Earlier this week, I went back to Rose’s studio, this time to talk about Libidinous Zombie, the collection of erotic horror that Rose and her brilliant husband / partner in crime, Dayv, have been dreaming of for years.

I was privileged to be one of the #8Authors she asked to contribute to this collection and the story that I ultimately handed over turned out to be quite a labor of love, one that is especially important to me.

Alice Blk Bkgnd FB“Alice in the Attic” isn’t a pretty story. If I did my job right, it’s creepy and unsettling and abjectly filthy. I also hope that, while it makes you vaguely uncomfortable, it also turns you on. That intersection between sex and fear is fascinating to me. In fact, it’s very much at Alice’s heart.

This interview was short and sweet and really fun (at least, that’s how it felt to record!) We talked about short stories that want to be novels, taboo and transgression, and how wonderful it is when an editor asks you take off the reins and GO. You don’t have to have read #LZ to enjoy it. Hell, you don’t even have to like horror. It’s just a good conversation about writing without restraint. That said, if you happened to want to read some pretty righteous, sexy horror, you could do better than #LZ.

So, if you want to check out my conversation with the brilliantly excellent Rose Caraway, click HERE.

KMQ Interview: Inside the Erotica Author’s Studio

Dirty 30_1Hello all! I got to do a very cool thing earlier this week. Rose Caraway, of The Kiss Me Quick’s Erotica Podcast and The Sexy Librarian BlogCast, did a series awhile ago called “Inside the Erotica Author’s Studio” in which she interviewed the authors she featured in The Sexy Librarian’s Big Book of Erotica. It was a great series and I enjoyed it tremendously last Fall, so when she mentioned that she’d be bringing it back for the lease of The Sexy Librarian’s Dirty 30, vol. 1I was really excited, even more so when she asked me up to her place for an in-studio interview to kick the whole thing off.

So, that’s what I did. I spent a couple of really excellent hours talking about everything from erotica and writing to monster porn and Amazon filters with Rose and Big Daddy over at the KMQ headquarters. It was one of the most relaxing interview experiences I’ve ever had. Rose is incredibly generous in her support of authors and the genre, and the conversation flowed everywhere, mostly because Rose is fantastically easy to talk to. In fact, there were points that I forgot we were being recorded.

If you’d like to listen to the interview, just click the real player below and off you go, or if you’d like to read Rose’s show notes before listening, click HERE to be taken to the episode’s page over at the KMQ / Sexy Librarian site. Either way, I hope you check it out and enjoy. It’s a bit long (because damn we were having a good time) but I hope it’s as much fun to listen to as it was to record. Plus, if you hang out for the 10 Pivot Questions at the end, you’ll hear my stump myself on No. 8 – What Would You Do If You Couldn’t Write Erotica? It was a hard one because honestly, there’s nothing I’d rather do than what I’m doing right now.
