Author Abbie Adams thrilled readers with her book “A Little Training.” But she’s not resting on her laurels. The prolific writer and blogger’s been busy, and her newest book, Vacation from Reality has been released to the delight of her fans. Can anything possibly heat up the Kindle more than her hot Mexican sands and hotter spankings for main character Marissa? We don’t think so, and neither will the readers of Abbie’s latest literary romp.
Recently, Abbie sat down to answer a few questions about her writing, what inspires her stories and what she has planned for the future.
Your new book Vacation from Reality is different from your first book. Tell me about it.
Well, in Vacation from Reality Marissa is supposed to go to Cancun with her best friend, however, she gets stuck going by herself when her friend’s family get sick at the last minute. She has an overactive fantasy life that started when she witnessed the older brother of her friend spanking his girlfriend. She planned to spend the whole vacation laying around daydreaming.
These spanking get really hot and she has a hard time deciphering fantasy from reality in the tropical heat. Well, damn, there are dark sexy men everywhere and you can get away with anything in the Mexican tourist traps.
And for the readers who are waiting impatiently for another age play to follow A Little Training can you tell us where you are on that?
Do you plan to carry on with Alivia and the other girls? Oh yes! Alivia is alive and getting in to mischief as we speak. I had started Vacation a while back and set it aside, one day when I was bored I picked it up again- and let’s just say it wrote itself. I will get right back on track with Livvy, I know she can’t wait to share her story.
Now A Little Training,(Livvy’s story) was at the top of the charts for quite a while. Can you tell us a little about that one, for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to read it?
A Little Training is a different spin on Age Play. It is first person in the form of a journal and is not as harsh in some aspects as some of the other age plays out there. There are also many characters to follow. There are four girls to get to know and love, with Livvy being the point-of-view character.
And, for all us who like the idea of having multiple men in our lives there are more men in there then should be allowed. Each of the girls and guys in the book have very distinctive personalities and if you don’t get to know them well enough in the first book… Well, then you will have to read the next book because we are sure to explore them more later.
What was the hardest part of writing that book?
Letting go, for sure. Not worrying what others would think and just writing for my own enjoyment, because for the first time, that’s what this one is. I can’t say I mastered it. I know I didn’t, I need a lot more practice, but that is really the hardest thing for me to do. I need to relax and not worry that my readers will get disgusted and slam their book (Kindle/Nook) down swearing they’ll never pick up my books again. I need to be comfortable letting my inner weird out.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your last book?
Oh yes, I keep seeing in my comments- the same thing over and over. The worst reviews I get are on the altering of the girl’s vaginas. So, I know I must not have conveyed something right. I know this is very different from anything I have ever heard of before. However, I know it is very popular for women to buy creams and such to try to make themselves smaller.
The desire is there in women to have to stretch and have discomfort to take a man into her. Men have the same desire to know that a woman is tight, and has to stretch to accept him. Women also want at times to be taken against their will, this is a natural desire. These are the things I was reaching for in this area of my fantasy. I hope I will be able to express that better in the next book.
What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
I don’t want to give anything away but I think it has to be when that bratty Sara gets her just desserts.
How did you become a writer?
Well, years ago (like 15) I decided to write a book and got about 11 chapters in and my computer crashed. I gave up after we had the computer fixed because I was just a wreck and didn’t have the heart to start over.
Then 3 years ago I decided again I was going to start again, I had too many stories in my head not to. I was lying in bed with a headache one day and called my husband in to lay with me. I told him I wanted to write again and he was like- “Sure.”
I started jotting down some plot ideas later that day and didn’t end up leaving my computer for 2 days. My sweet husband brought me in a space heater- and some food at certain points I’m sure…
What inspired you to write your first book?
Fantasies- what else? Oh dang was I supposed to answer something deep and profound here?
When did you first consider yourself a writer? Perhaps when I received my first bit of money and my dear hubby ran out and bought me a laptop? I don’t know most of the time I still get confused, it is easy for me to say that I am a writer everyone is a writer… but well not everyone is an author? So maybe it was when I received that first bit of money that I actually felt like an author… but I have always been a writer.
When you write, do you ever model any characters after actual people?
Yes, I put many of my friend’s personalities into my characters. I won’t use their names but I may make them similar to people I have met and that will help me to remember who their personality is.
Why do you like to write? Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I have always loved to read. I loved to take off to other places and lives. But, as you may know things don’t always progress the way you like them too. I am guilty of rewriting everyone else’s books or movies. I always had to add spankings to everything. There were very few spankings in modern day books. I did find a few in the older romance novels and treasured them. But, even if it weren’t for the lack of spankings- I just loved to recreate or explore the shoulda- coulda- what-ifs… in story making. When you are the author- you can do whatever you want.
Are there any authors that have grasped your interest? Wow, there are so many. I just recently found and read a bunch from Maren Smith… She is awesome. And then there is Renee Rose, I got a sneak peek at her WIP and it is hot. It doesn’t matter what she writes- it is awesome. Oh, and Sue Lyndon- EVERYTHING she writes.
If you could be a character in any novel you’ve ever read, who would you be and why?
This is crazy hard I mean, really? Part of the joy of reading is that you can put yourself in the book, but not feel the actual spankings right? Dang but some of those spankings are soooo hot…. How about Kylie in The Locket, by Maren Smith. That was a fun one.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? This one is the easiest by far, Breanna Hayse. Period. Plain and simple.
She is always there, whether I need to be told to straighten up (and she has even emailed my husband a time or two) or if I need a shoulder to cry on. She has given me hard feedback and great encouragement. If that isn’t enough look at her books. If you haven’t read them, wow have you missed out.
She is the only person I know who can give you an education in a fictional book and to top that off- she makes you cry for more. She makes you understand why you crave the things you crave, and why it is normal for you to want it. Well, with her career in nursing- a degree in Biology (pre-med) and a masters in Psychology, specializing in deviant behavior and alternative lifestyles she is a fountain of creative support.
