Why Did You Choose to Selfpublish Instead of Taking The Traditional Route?
I don't solely self-publish. I'm a hybrid author. I like having the variety, security and flexibility of spreading my books around.
Did You Set Out To Become an Author as Your Main Profession?
Being an author isn't my main profession. It's one part of lots of things I do to make a living. Though admittedly, it's the most fun!
Tell Us About Your Book.
Eyes Wide Open is a M/M/F BDSM erotic romance set in London. It was awarded LR Cafe's Best Menage 2015.
Here's the blurb:
An ordinary girl catapulted into an extraordinary world meets two even more extraordinary men—but what will she do when she discovers their sexy secret?
Fiona Gillespie moved to London shortly after graduating to take advantage of the opportunities the capital could offer. However, months later, she’s still living in a horrid flat and working in a grimy East End pub. The problem is, she doesn’t really know what she wants to do, career-wise. So when she happens upon an advertisement for a job at a plush Mayfair hotel, she jumps at the chance. A great deal of determination and a spot of luck land Fiona her dream role.
But working at the Totally Five Star London is just the beginning. She adores the role and flourishes, impressing her bosses and making her increasingly determined to climb the career ladder.
While her career is flying, though, her love life is non-existent. She hasn’t even thought about men, never mind met or dated one for months, so when she bumps into two gorgeous businessmen in the hotel, she’s surprised to find her head has been well and truly turned. Even more surprisingly, they flirt with her—both of them! She’s drawn to James and Logan, despite feeling that they’re way out of her league.
When a misunderstanding leads Fiona to James and Logan’s sumptuous top-floor suite, she has no idea what she’s about to uncover. Scenes of people-trafficking, drug-pushing and wild sex parties all appear in her active imagination. Yet what she actually sees is something she’d never even considered before, something that piques her interest.
After discovering their sexy secret, what will she do with this new-found knowledge?
What Is Your Favorite Part of This Book, and Why Do You Think Readers Will Enjoy It?
I don't want to give too much away, but the part where Fiona discovers James and Logan's secret is my favourite. I think (hope!) readers will enjoy it because it's sexy and surprising.
Where Do You See Self-Publishing Going In The Future?
It's difficult to say. The publishing world changes constantly and it's often all authors can do to keep on top of those changes. I hope readers will begin to understand more the costs incurred with writing and publishing books and realise that $2.99 isn't a rip off!
