Review




My Thoughts

This was the first book that I read by this author, and at first I wasn't sure what to expect, but that soon changed my mind. I enjoyed reading this book from start to end and it was certainly an eye opener that's for sure. There was a lot of stuff in this book that we were lead to believe differently in other books, this was written by a real life Dom who has lived and breathed this lifestyle not someone who just researched the BDSM life.

This is a small collection of short mini sexy stories from a Dom's p.o.v and each story is different has themes. My favourite has to be Red, this is one erotic book and will leave you needing a very cold shower. if you want short and sexy then this is the book for you. I recommend you download this one today.

Please welcome new author Kelsey Burns,

Hi Kelsey how are you today?

I'm fine thank you Louise. A little fragile after too many cocktails last night but otherwise very fine indeed. 

Tell us a little about yourself?

I live in the North East of England. I've been married for millions of years and have two grown up kids. By day I work with special needs children on school transport. I have my very own blog with most 9000 amazing followers and I PA to two fab authors. 

What is your favourite movie?

Dirty Dancing, it never grows old. 

What is your favourite colour?

Black

What star sign are you?

Capricorn 

What is your ring tone on your phone?

Silent/vibrate! I get too many notifications to have any noises on my phone. I'd never get anything done. 

What do your family think about you writing and have they read any of your work?

They've been extremely supportive. My daughter and three nieces have read my work and love it. They say it's fresh, modern and relatable. My mother is an avid reader but I'm not so keen on showing her it. It's a little rude! 

Are you any good in the kitchen and what is your specialiality ?

Lasagne. They say I make a mean lasagne. I have to admit it is quite special. And my quiche is pretty good too. 

What is your favourite food?

I'm always on a diet like most women. When I treat myself I love a good curry. When I'm healthy a roast dinner with home made mint sauce is scrummy.

Are the stories old ones you have saved or new?

I'm a newbie. All my work is new. Although I have got a dark novel part written that I'm excited to get back to when the 'Girls Breaking The Rules' stories are all written.








What is your favourite genre to write?

I've found I'm pretty good at sex. I can write a decent sex scene too. Boom boom! Most of the stuff I've been writing seems to have some humour involved. Even sex is funny! Erotic, comedy romance I'd say. 

When and why did you begin writing?

I started writing late last year. Being a blogger has meant I've become friends with a lot of authors. Certain authors kept telling me to give it a go. One day, on holiday in Turkey, I wrote a prologue to my work in progress 'Reflections' and sent it to three of my closest author friends. And so the madness began. 

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

When I typed 'The End' on Tash and James' story, sent it out for feedback and had great reviews come back. 

Do you have a specific writing style?

I'm writing this series in first person, present at the moment. I feel you can portray feelings well this way. I tend to be a bit of a joker and it does tend to shine through into my writing. 

Who was the easiest character to write for and why?

I'm loving Alexa (Lex). She's feisty and very opinionated. She doesn't give a damn who she offends and she's very protective of her friends. 

Which lead character is your personal favourite and why?

James is rather special. He was my first male lead. He's a firefighter, sexy, calm and cool headed. A bit of a Dom, he likes a bit kink. Johnny on the other hand is funny to be around. His Irish accent is enough to make the ladies drop their knickers. James-Johnny? Decisions decisions!

What was your favorite book as a child?

I didn't read a lot as a child. My obsession started a few years ago. Two books do always remain in my head from my childhood. Stig of The Dump and Charlotte's Web. 

How did you come up with the title?

It happened overnight. It was as easy as that. I literally woke up and knew I wanted to write 'Girls Breaking The Rules'. The storyline was there and screaming to be written. I left the dark erotic suspense I was writing and decided to pursue this series. 



How much of the book is realistic?

If I told you I'd have to kill you! The characters aren't based on anyone specific but my friends relate to a lot of the girls' banter. I used to be a bit of a party animal, so I've seen it, been there, worn the T-shirt so to speak. As with most authors there's a lot of life experience goes into their writing. I'm no different. And what girl doesn't see a bunch of guys and give them marks out of ten? 

Have you ever binned a book when half way through thinking it wasn't good enough?

Yes many times. But I hate bullying and author bashing. I won't tolerate it. Anyone who manages to write and publish needs a medal as far as I'm concerned. Good or bad. 



What books have most influenced your life most?

I can't say that a book has influenced my life. I've related to many but never been influenced by them. 

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

I work alongside Charlotte Edwards and Marcus Darkley. Assisting/Proof reading their erotic shorts and basically managing their day to day business. There's not a day goes by without us speaking. They've been there from day one of my writing journey and their support and daily mentoring is invaluable. We make a great team. I'm so proud to be publishing under our logo Erotic Dreams. Donna Alam is a fellow northerner and I'm lucky enough to live five minutes away from her. Donna has taught me so much about writing, we also make a great team. We became besties through wine and words. Our morning coffee sessions are quite fun, discussing serious subjects such as how many slang names are out there for vagina?

What book are you reading now?

I'm beta reading for Donna Alam. A novel called Playing Games. 

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

Nikki Groom, Donna Alam, NJ Frost, Matthew Metzger are all fabulous. 

What are your current projects?

I'll be finishing up on the girls' with Shelby's story then I'll be getting straight back to 'Reflections'. This is quite a complex story about a woman with an alter ego. Katherine/Kate. She gets up to a lot of naughty business when Kate comes out to play. 

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

I certainly can!

GIRLS BREAKING THE RULES (TASH)

Excerpt

Alexa is not as blessed in the boob department as Shelby or me and it’s not really a necessity for her to wear a bra. Today she’s bra-less; the chill in the air has her nipples displayed at their full glory. 

‘Thank God for that,’ she says, rubbing her arms and climbing into the back seat. ‘I thought you were never going to get here. I’ve been standing outside waiting for fifteen minutes, I’m bloody freezing.’ 

‘Yep, I can see how cold you are Lex.’ Smirking, I point at her nipples. 

‘Bugger off, bitch. It’s thirty degrees in Marbella and I refuse to carry a jacket onto the plane,’ she says as she tries to push her erect nipples back into hiding. It doesn’t work and only fuels my laughter. 

‘Lex, have you ever thought about getting them pierced?’ Shelby asks, her voice heavy with curiosity. ‘I’ve been involved in photo shoots with models who have gorgeous tits with nipple piercings, now that I come to think about it, they were all quite small like yours. Nice and perky though.’ She adds with an air of mischief. 

Shelby likes to swing both ways. From an early age she knew she was bi-sexual and has never been afraid to show it. She says that variety is the spice of life, and not to knock it until you've tried it. I agree with her wholeheartedly–when it comes down to trying a balti rather than a korma. I've even pushed the boat out and gone for a rogan josh. But, pussy–versus cock? No thanks. I’ll pass on that one.

Alexa doesn’t reply for a moment, but she’s unable to hide her cheeky grin before she finally replies.
‘To be honest I have thought about it, but I’d like to go one better than nipple piercings. If I decided to pierce an intimate body part for the purpose of stimulation then it would have to be my clit. How about it girls?’ she asks with a gleam. ‘We could all get one, together this weekend in Marbella.’ 

‘Are you shitting me?’ I ask incredulously as I squeeze my thighs together. ‘No-one and I repeat no–fucking–one is sticking a needle through my lady-boner!’ 

Two minutes later we pull into Heathrow and exit our taxi at terminal three in fits of laughter. 
‘Come on girls,’ I say. ‘Let’s go break the rules.’


Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Sticking to a routine. Distractions. Remembering not to take it too seriously and enjoy it. Being a PA. Proof reading, blogging and writing takes a lot of time and effort. Not having enough hours in the day is a challenge in itself. I wouldn't swap it for the world though. 

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

Tiffany Reisz. I would read her shopping lists if I could! She gave me the best characters ever. Soren, Nora and Kingsley from The Original Sinners. 



Who designed the covers?

The fantastic Francessca Webster from Francessca's Romance Reviews. We've worked together for a while now creating covers and graphics for the Erotic Dreams authors. She's got a great talent and she's another huge part of my team. My son also designs some of my teasers and headers. 

Do you have any advice for other writers?

I'm not qualified to give advice, but one thing I'd say is to do it for yourself. I said I'd publish before I hit the big 50 and I've achieved it. It's all about the achievement for me. 

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you! Thank you so much for taking a chance on a newbie like me. Every time one reader says they enjoyed my work I happy dance, jump for joy and pee myself a little! It's an age thing!

Do you have any funny quirks or stories you would like to tell us about yourself?

My friends nick named me 'Flick'. Years ago when under the influence of alcohol and dancing the night away, I often never wanted to go home. In my drunken stupor, I'd go in a mood and flick my hair like a child. 

What do you like to do when your not busy working and writing?

I love to travel. I like to read my kindle in the sun whist being pampered. I also love to attend author book signings. I've been lucky enough to travel Britain meeting authors from all over the world. Recently I visited Chicago and Toronto which was pretty awesome. I'm off to Ireland this week for another event in Dublin. I'm helping assist the authors and cover models *fans face*. Someone has to do it! 
Next year I'm actually a signing author in Leeds. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. 

Where do you see yourself in ten years time?

No idea. Happy and healthy hopefully. That's all I can wish for. 

Thank you for joining me today you have been awesome.

Thank you for having me! I've loved it. It's been a blast.

Author interview
with
Georgina Hannan


Please welcome the brilliant Georgina Hannan

Hi Georgia,tell us a little about yourself?

I am a full time Project Manager for an IT company. I spend as much of my free time as I can with my boyfriend (he's 1 of my best friends too!).

I am shy but very talkative! (weird combination I know).
 I normally talk to people first, just a quick hello - mostly because I don't like being alone knowing someone else
 is too.
I am very loyal but I have my limits so if I burn the bridge you are standing on - chances are you lit the match!

I feel I am a good listener and I love to learn about other people's lives.

Are the stories old ones you have saved 
or new?

Both - I have LOTS of stories in the pipeline! ;-)

When and why did you begin writing?

I started when I was about 14, I'd written a short story for a school English project and it received really good marks. Another idea entered my mind and I began writing it. After that story I focused on my studies again and put it down until a few years later when I started writing again.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

When I began getting lots of ideas and realized I couldn't ignore them, I had to write them down.

What inspired you to write your first book?

The first book when I was 14 was inspired by my school experience and the love triangle I'd childishly longed for.

The first book I published (Cursed) was inspired by a day trip to Dartmoor, Devon, England, where I learnt about the myths of the area and an idea was sparked.





Do you have a specific writing style?

I don't think so, I write the way that suits the story. It's mostly 3rd person but a few 1st person too.

Who was the easiest character to write for and why and hardest and why?

Wow - not sure, Daisy (from my Cursed Trilogy) was both easy and hard because she was based around myself and I had to be really honest with how I'd feel in the situations she was in, especially towards the end of the Trilogy.

Lily (from Another Life) was harder because she was new.

All my characters have easy and hard sections and characteristics. I am sure some of my future characters will prove difficult.

What was your favorite book as a child?

I don't think I can remember a specific book - however the Point Horror books were the ones who actually got me into reading so I'll never forget those types of books.

How did you come up with the title?

Cursed - the book was about a girl who thought, by the end of it, that she was Cursed so the title fit there.

Obsession - Daisy becomes obsessed with her university assignment into her family history.

Absolution - means "formal release from guilt, obligation, or punishment." and this is what Daisy is trying to receive for another character in this book so it was a good name for the book.


How much of the book is realistic?

Cursed - a lot of it is, as its set in real places, with real historical facts and real myths of the area. However the characters and what they experience are fictitious.

Obsession & Absolution & Another Life - All fiction

However, I would say if you believe all four of my books (so far) are realistic.

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

There is always some sort of experience in there even if its just the feelings. This enables the stories to feel more real.

What books have most influenced your life most?

The Point Horror collection of books, without which I don't think I'd be reading or writing.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Gosh - possibly Lauren Kate and/or Karen Mahoney

What book are you reading now?

I have stopped reading for a bit to edit my latest book however I had just started For Always by Janae Mitchell

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

Oh lots! In no particular order; Katie Mayo-Jackson, Lavinia Urban, Danni Williams, Apryl Baker and so many more.

What are your current projects?

Hehe well I can't tell you too much as I've not revealed the title or cover yet but I am working on a Romantic Comedy and another Romance. Also have A LOT more in planning stages - I've set up a little personal release plan so I can keep track of all my ideas.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

As mentioned above, it started at school due to a writing assignment and the rest they say is history.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

Of course here is a snippet from Another Life, my latest release



Out of all your characters who is your favourite?

A favourite? That's like asking a mother to choose her favourite child! I don't think I can as they all have different characteristics.

Although... I know I shouldn't but I have a special place for Tyler from the Cursed Trilogy and Leon from Another Life.

Who was the inspiration behind the characters in your new book ?

Mostly no one, they are just ideals which popped into my head.


Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Anything challenging? No because if I don't know it - I'll learn it as part of the research!

Only thing I'd say that's challenging is finding the time and energy to write! :(

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

As mentioned above, Lauren Kate & Karen Mahoney - they have a real ability to draw you into the story and make you forget about the real world and really become absorbed in their world.
Who designed the covers?

Cursed Trilogy covers were painted exclusively for me by my friend Michael Garvey (some of his work can be seen here http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/michael-garvey.html)

Another Life was designed by Katie Mayo-Jackson for me.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Timings I suppose. Sometimes I just don't have the time to write and sometimes I am just tired and drained.


What star sign are you?

Sagittarius

What is your favourite colour?

Lime Green


What is your favourite movie?

erm... I'm not sure, probably the Harry Potter series, specifically Prisoner of Azkaban

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Just keep writing. Write what you want to write not what someone is telling you to write.
Write for you not others.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you! Also keep reading and looking out for my work... There are some new and different things coming from me as the future moves forward.

What Others Are Saying

It's so full of twists and turns, and OMG moments that you will once again be drawn into stalking, plotting, and the emotional roller coaster we know as Matt.  ~ Goodreads Review

Her stories have so many twists, turns, and bumps they literally leave your head spinning and your heart wondering how or why it could feel anything for these sinister and hateful characters!! Oh did I mention my jaw being open plenty of times too!! If you do not take the time to read Viveca's foreward in her books, go back and do so. Her thoughts are absolutely fascinating. That mind of hers is definitely twisted. ~ Goodreads Review

he action is fast paced and the characters well developed. Once again Ms. Benoir has delved deeply into Matt's twisted mind to share his story and she is not done yet. ~ Goodreads Review

This book is long but again, the writing is fabulous. I must admit the first book was quite shocking with the horrifying acts it held within, but this book was less shocking and I really enjoyed it. ~ Goodreads Review
