I’m pleased to offer up my blog to the charming, very creative Emily Cale (who I get to hang out with next week during the Romantic Times Convention!!) today to tell us about her latest release, which is an interesting concept for a multi-author anthology.
Don’t worry, both my cats are alive and well. They may not be pleased at the lack of kitty treats available, but they live a pretty comfortable existence. No, today I’m talking about the basic idea behind that saying.
For most of the Love Letters stories, I came up with characters and a plot long before I had a title. My co-authors and I would have worked out who was taking which letter, but we didn’t have exact titles until we were closer to turning them in. The exception for me was for this first volume. When I originally pitched my idea we thought we might have more letters per volume and I’d decided to do F Is for Flirtatious. When we went to four stories and I got assigned the letter C, I had a lot of trouble trying to see my original idea working. So I scrapped it.
Then I started thinking about words that started with C. There are a lot of them, but nothing that sounded sexy. When I hit curiosity, I knew I had it. Let’s be honest, we’re all a little curious about things that go on behind other people’s bedroom doors. It’s why people buy the magazines that have stories that are supposed to tell you all the things your kinky neighbors are doing. I always end up disappointed that my neighbors aren’t really that wild.
If you worked at a BDSM dungeon, then some crazy things are going to be going on. I’m not saying Hilary necessarily opens any closed doors on purpose, but after a while of looking at them, she’s got to be wondering exactly what is behind door number 1.
Opening it sends her into a world that she has only read and wondered about. Of course the thing about knowing is that it only makes you more curious.
Love Letters Volume 1: Obeying Desire
Love Letters Volume 1 contains four hot novellas that will tempt you to submit to desire:
A Is for Assignment by Ginny Glass
Lane Heywood is the last person Cameron Isley wanted as his partner in an undercover investigation at a sex club. But with the sexy psychiatrist masquerading as his Domme, he’ll have to submit to her erotic torment–and try to control his all-too-real lust.
B Is for Bondage by Christina Thacher
When Rachel Cooper begins BDSM lessons, she soon starts fantasizing about her instructor, Marc Thibaud. They’re not supposed to have sex–until one lesson crosses the line…
C Is for Curious by Emily Cale
Mistress Rebecca Greer has had her eye on The Black Rose BDSM club’s shy receptionist, so when Hilary “accidentally” interrupts one of her sessions, Rebecca decides to give her a taste to satisfy her curiosity.
D Is for Detained by Maggie Wells
He was the preacher’s son; her parents owned the local sex shop. Sherry Adams and Tyler Prescott’s attraction was forbidden when they were teenagers, but years later Deputy Tyler takes out his trusty handcuffs to show her just how good they could be together.
Emily Cale spent the majority of her childhood as a visitor to the worlds of her favorite authors. With encouragement from her English teachers, she put pen to paper and began imagining her own stories. Preferring the fascinating lives of her characters, she majored in creative writing. When not lost in a manuscript or a good book, she enjoys crocheting, rock climbing, and playing board games. She currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her husband and a very spoiled cat.
