Can you tell us how many books you have written total?

Hooked, due for release on July 20th from Blushing Books will be my 20th.

 

Will you tell us about your latest release?

My Club Decadence series is drawing to an end.  I have received so many messages and emails from fans who have asked for stories of some of the secondary characters that I created Decadence Nights, a spinoff of sorts, so it doesn’t have to, end that is.

 

Are you working on anything right now?

I’m always working on something.  Currently, I have about five works in progress, it might sound chaotic, but I work on which ever one speaks to me.  I have Club Decadence Book 6 nearly finished as well as Decadence Nights 2 well on the way.  Yesterday, an idea for Decadence Nights 3 popped in my head and I wrote a little outline.  So, I guess that’s WIP number six.

 

 

 

How much of your stories come from real experiences?

 

Most is a creation of my wicked mind, but a lot of the sass, humor, locations, etc. are real.  My husband says the darndest things sometimes.  Oddly enough, his words often end up in a book.

 

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

 

Yes, having all of these stories and characters in my head and not being able to get them out faster.  I have notebooks everywhere and if an idea pops into my head, I write it down so it isn’t lost forever.

 

Who designs your covers?

 

The Blushing artists and they do an excellent job.  I am a stickler for hair color, so I will try to find a couple that resembles my couple and send it along as an idea.  Often, they use the one I pick out, but sometimes it’s not possible.  They try to use another pose or background if it’s available in the series, though.  Like with Hooked.  It turned out beautifully, I particularly like the starry night background which I think might be perfect for the rest of the series.

 

What do you like to read?

 

Reading, what is this reading that you speak of?  Sadly, I don’t find the time to read as much as I want to.

 

 

Are there any authors that have caught your eye?

 

Anything by Kristen Ashley, Cherise Sinclair and sci-fi by Laurann Dohner are must buys for me.

 

 

Do you have any advice for new writer’s trying their hand at erotica?

 

Write, write, write and keep writing.  The more you write, the more confident you will become and with each book you grow in your craft.

 

 

 

Hooked (Decadence Nights)

Hooked,DecadenceNights_500X750-72dpiThirty-eight-year-old legal secretary Olivia Wright’s clock is ticking and she’s afraid she’s running out of time to find Master Right. Several times she thought she’d found the Dom of her dreams, but instead of the prince she sought, he’d turned out to be a slimy toad. The last one had dumped her unexpectedly and nearly broken her. Now, after a long dry spell, she’s ready to try again. She’d really like it to be with the man who’d caught her eye three years ago, but that man is her boss and despite her best efforts, and tightest skirts, he hasn’t spared her an extra glance.  Resigning herself to unrequited love, she attempts to move on, procuring an invitation to an exclusive BDSM club, hoping Club Decadence will be the answer.

Joseph Hooks isn’t your typical Dom. He’s NBA tall, with no police or military background to speak of, wears tweed suits, of all things, and on an occasion the dreaded bow tie. But behind his somewhat nerdy appearance is a handsome, green eyed, strict but sensual dominant who’s also hell on wheels in a court of law. He’s wealthy, powerful, successful, and enjoys popularity among the subs at his private club, at least those who don’t flee from the swishing sound of polished rattan, but he’s exhausted his search for his perfect submissive and concerned about coming up short. After a frustrating day of watching his gorgeous secretary’s delectable bottom in an incredibly tight skirt, he heads to San Antonio to blow off steam and maybe make a connection.

He thinks she’s terminally vanilla and straight-laced. She thinks he’s not into her, or with the way he ignores her curves and tight skirts, possibly gay.  Hopelessly oblivious to what has been staring them in the face for three long years, Joseph and Olivia continue their aimless search for love. Then, one night, as a storm brews outside another rages inside as their paths converge.  Will Olivia finally get the Master Prince she deserves, or will her past prevent her from realizing her dream?  Will her presence at the club be the sign that Joseph needs to wake up and at long last claim the woman he’s yearned for all along?

Decadence Nights is a new spin off series of novellas by Maddie Taylor, featuring brand new characters as well as a host of secondary characters that you met and fell in love with in the Club Decadence series. These are their stories and their happily ever afters. We begin with Joseph and Olivia to get you Hooked.

Are you a morning or night person?

 

Um, both.  I sleep very little actually.  Sometimes only 3-4 hours/night.  So, sometimes I’m up until 3 am and my eyes pop open again at 7.  I get tons done that way though I’m not sure that’s the best way of doing it.

 

And for fun, tell us about a unique or quirky habit of yours.

 

Hm…  That’s a toughie.  I suppose it’s when a “writing frenzy” comes over me.  It is truly a wonderful thing.  I can whip out 10-12 thousand words in just a few days during these times.   It’s always interesting going back and seeing if any of it makes sense.  Hooked was written in one of these frenzies.  I wrote 32k in 5 days.  It’s now 40k, so of course, I expanded on it when I went back through, but the core of it was there.  Oh to be able to turn that on and off with a switch.
