Hi Victoria, thanks ever so much for letting me visit today!
First, please tell us about your latest release.
My latest release is called Making Him Wait- and dare I say, it is HOT!
This is my third novel, and was immense fun to write from start to finish. Based in and around the studio and home of erotic artist, Maddie Templeton, Making Him Wait is a tale of lustful romance, incredible self-control, domination, submission, and the colossal task of creating twelve brand new pieces of art work in time to exhibit them in the newly re-furnished gallery, The Stripped Banana.
Here’s the blurb!
Maddie Templeton has always been an unconventional artist. Themes of submission and domination pulse through her erotic artwork, and she’s happily explored these lustful themes both on and off the canvas. But, when Theo Hunter enters her life, she is presented with a new challenge. Maddie sets out to test his resolve as she teases, torments and toys with him. But, as Maddie drives Theo to breaking point, she soon becomes unsure whether her own resolve will hold out!
At the same time, Maddie must put on the exhibition of a lifetime. As the hottest gallery in town clamours for her best work, Maddie pushes her models harder and higher until they are physically, sexually and emotionally exhausted. Will Maddie’s models continue to submit to her, or will she push them too far? And will she be ready for the exhibition in time?
The only way to find out is to wait and see…and the waiting only makes it sweeter!
Where do you get your best ideas?
Ideas come to me all the time, from everywhere and anywhere. They can be triggered by sights, smells, abstract sounds, lyrics from poems, songs, quotes, or just from objects left lying around the house, street, or in shops.
For example, about a year ago I was walking into my local town, when I smelt a freshly painted wall. The moment the full aroma of the emulsion hit me the thought processes began. In minutes I had an idea for a story about a man who got his kicks from having his flesh painted, and the short story Coated was born (Xcite, Power Play). This piece was one of the first triggers for a bubbly novel idea that became Making Him Wait. Once I’d written one story with paintbrushes, I really wanted to write another one!
If I’m really stuck for ideas however, (a rare thing- I frequently suffer from having way too many ideas, and not knowing which to use first), then I take a nice long bath- I’ve always thought best in the bath!
Do you write about what turns you on?
I used to, but to be honest, very little turns me on these days. I have definitely become rather desensitized to erotica. Sad but true!!
Are you a romantic?
I’d love to think I was – but I’m not. I would like to be though!! How do I become a romantic? Advice welcome!!
Do you listen to music when you’re writing?
I do if I’m writing in a location where there is no background noise. I need sounds to be surrounding me to work properly. So when I’m working in the café- I write at the same table, in the same café most days, I let the chatter of my fellow coffee drinkers surround me. When it’s quiet however, I have to pop on some music.
I have different playlists to listen to depending on what I’m writing. For heavy BDSM scenes you’ll find me listening to Depeche Mode, Pulp, Oasis, Within Temptation, Soul Asylum and other similar sounds. When a lighter or more emotional touch is required, then it’ll be Adele, Snow Patrol, or maybe Dido. At all other times I just slam on Robbie Williams- what can I say- I’m weak!
What have you got coming soon for us to look out for?
Life is as full on as ever I’m pleased to say. I am currently re-launching my very first solo work, The Collector, which is very exciting! I have also just become the proud author of The Best of Kay Jaybee Collection. My pen is continuing to move across the page at top speed as I finish off a new erotic romance novella about an archeologist working in Tunisia, for the Xcite Secret Library, and I am also plotting and planning novel number four!
What are your future ambitions?
I would love to get a non- erotic novel out in the world. I am very proud of my erotic work, and I have no plans to leave the genre, but I’d love to finish both the crime novel and the modern romance novel I started years ago, and haven’t had time to go back to. I am also about to start a very exciting new project away from book writing- but I’m sworn to secrecy!!
Thanks ever so much for inviting me along today Victoria- before I go let me treat you to a snippet from the very beginning of Making Him Wait…
Maddie nodded with approval as her newest model – a petite blonde – flexed the muscles she’d been keeping stock still for the previous half hour.
“Control, Freya – at least the appearance of control – is everything.” The artist reached out an affectionate hand to her muse.
Freya rocked a little on her bare feet as Maddie touched her lightly freckled cheek. “No need to look so worried, honey. You are doing brilliantly. It’s a difficult pose to hold for so long.”
“Thank you.” Blushing an endearing shade of pink, Freya lowered the hands she’d nervously clenched before her, giving her employer another chance to see the neat triangle of her semi-shaved pussy.
Maddie, her jeans and t-shirt smeared and spattered with all the mediums of her trade, did not feel the need to mention to Freya that her own knickers were sodden, nor that beneath her holster bra, her nipples were rock hard. A further buzz from her mobile alerted Maddie to the arrival of another text message. In fact a steady string of muffled noises from her mobile, coming from the pit of her handbag, had been announcing the arrival of texts every ten minutes or so throughout the morning.
Smiling to herself, Maddie continued to disregard her phone and considered the exquisite outline of her companion’s porcelain frame. Most people came to Maddie to be drawn or painted, sometimes as a commission for a lover, husband or wife. Some, however, like Freya, came to the studio as a way of improving their self-confidence. Despite her generally shy demeanour, Freya had proved to be very good at posing as Maddie required and the artist had offered her an occasional job as a life model.
Sometimes Maddie felt she was more therapist than artist – specifically a sex therapist – as men and women alike shared their most intimate secrets while standing on the other side of her easel. Maddie’s studio certainly had the air of an erotic fantasy confessional about it. She wasn’t complaining, however. No other life would do for her now. The job satisfaction Maddie achieved from listening to the dreams and fantasies of others while she recreated them onto canvas, went hand in glove with the personal physical gratification it gave her.
Money being either plentiful or non-existent, depending on the current success of her commissions and sales, Maddie had been forced to develop an alternative form of payment for her models – a reward system for good work. Maddie could tell from the rise and fall of Freya’s chest and the glistening damp skin at the top of her thighs, that she was more than ready to be paid for today’s session.
Closing in on her model, Maddie simultaneously cupped Freya’s slick pussy and left breast with her charcoal-blackened hands, causing an involuntary shiver to ripple through the younger woman’s body.
“Your progress really is outstanding, honey. Few of my models can stay as motionless as you can.” Congratulating Freya on her skill, Maddie left two dark palm prints on the girl’s tits and tapped at the inside of her legs. “Open up. I think you have deserved a treat after all your hard work.”
Gliding her palm over Freya’s mound, Maddie slipped a gentle finger into the slippery canal of the model’s frantically clutching sex, enjoying the murmured mew of contentment that escaped from her lipstick-free mouth. Pumping gently, the artist brought Freya close to orgasm with steady increases and decreases of pressure – her own mind straying to her mobile. Maddie wondered where Theo was and what he was doing. She knew what he was thinking about. She always knew that. Theo thought about her.
Pushing her happily sex-drugged model onto an armchair, Maddie’s own arousal kicked up a notch as she bent to lick Freya’s nub, swiftly bringing her to the dawn of a shuddering release.
While continuing to take pleasure in the sweet taste of another woman on her lips, Maddie considered how she’d phrase her responses to all the messages Theo had sent and how she’d tell him precisely what and who had held up her replies. Inhaling Freya’s climactic scent, Maddie’s hands roamed up and over the small, orgasm-jacked body, her thoughts still with Theo. His work-calloused right hand was probably on his dick at that very moment. A heady hit of power consumed Maddie – a power as intense as the climax of the woman panting hard in the chair before her. Maddie loved making him wait.
