And a bored computer programmer learns what it’s like to feel sexual freedom after being bound by a Master in Safe Word.
AR: Who is your heroine and what are some of the conflicts she faces?
LSJ: This is an interesting twist; the hero is looking for her, so she doesn’t come into play in the series just yet, only alluded to.
AR: Who is the hero and what conflicts does he face?
LSJ: Tristan Blackthorn lost the love of his life. He never knew why she left or where she went, but he’s been looking for her. His story will unfold as the series progresses, but he believes he will find her by using his publishing company and a submission call for true erotic tales.
AR: Where did you get the idea for this story or series? Who or what was your inspiration?
LSJ: The inspiration for this BDSM series sparked from a casual conversation with the love of my life. Two words, “Dark Tales,” poked at me. From there, I sat down and typed non-stop. Dark Tales Diaries: Volume 1 and the life of Tristan Blackthorn spilled out upon the “pages” of my laptop as he uses Blackthorn Publishing to manage his obsession of finding his lost love somewhere within the erotic tales of others.
AR: As a reader, what kind of books do you like to read?
LSJ: Romance! And all of the wonderful subgenre’s of romance. I also like sci-fi, but it’s always better if there’s romance in it. *Smiles*
AR: Thanks, London, for sharing about your new book!
