Cover Reveal and Pre-Order for The Next Big Thing #erotica #romance #femdom

The Next Big ThingHi folks,

I’m delighted to show off this luscious new cover and let you know you can pre-order this erotic romance short story, coming on the 18th February. It’s not available for pre-order on Amazon, sadly, but is at all other retailers, and will be on the Zon closer the time. Bear in mind, those of you who read the Brit Babes Sexy Just Got Rich anthology, you’ve read this story already. It’s been tweaked slightly, but nothing major.

Here’s what it’s all about:

Catriona’s life is spiralling out of control. One minute she’s a successful investment banker with a flat by the Thames and a healthy bank balance; the next she’s a famous author. Well, sort of famous. She’s written a femdom novel under a pen name, so nobody actually knows it was her. Her publisher has gone marketing crazy, lauding her book “The Next Big Thing”—much to her bewilderment. Especially since she hasn’t done any of the things she wrote about.

On launch day, curiosity gets the better of her and she goes into a busy London bookstore to queue up for her copy—despite the box of author copies stuffed into the bottom of her wardrobe. There she meets Elijah. When idle chit chat leads to him admitting he’s interested in female domination, everything changes, and their chance meeting leads to a whole lot more, giving Catriona the opportunity to experience the things she’s previously only fantasised about—not to mention the inspiration she needs to write the sequel her publisher is clamouring for.

The Next Big Thing

Okay, the idea of this blog hop/meme thing is that an author answers the questions below in a blog post, then tags some other authors. Those authors do the same thing, and the hop goes on. So basically, we’re dishing the dirt on our WIPs! Love it! 😀

So, here goes…

  • What is the working title of your book?

Ah, yes, titles. Well, no laughing, because I’m no good at titles, but it’s Stately Pleasures. It’s an erotic romance set in a stately home – and it’s the best I’ve come up with so far. Oh dear…

  • Where did the idea come from for the book?
I’m not too sure, to be honest. I absolutely love visiting stately homes and castles and things, so I suspect it came from that side of my brain, which then melded with the naughty side and came up with a ménage tale set in a Manor.
  • What genre does your book fall under?

Oops, think I’ve already answered this one. It’s a ménage erotic romance.

  • What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Two hot men, one Rubenesque woman = a ménage made in heaven. Wow, that’s pretty good considering I just came up with it on the spot!!

  • Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

It won’t be represented by an agency, but I don’t know whether it will be self-published. I’ll be sending it around to various publishers when it’s complete, and hopefully one of them will take it. But if not, I definitely wouldn’t rule out self-publishing.

  • How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I can’t really answer that, as I’m not finished yet! All being well I should be finished my first draft in the next couple of weeks and I think I started in early September. So around three months, I think. That’s not including the planning that went in beforehand.

  • Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Well, that’s easy. Throughout, I’ve had Jeremy Renner and Jared Padalecki as my male muses. Jeremy Renner is Jeremy Davenport, the owner of Davenport Manor. Jared Padalecki plays his best friend and also Head of Security, Ethan Hayes. For the lead female, I haven’t really had anyone in mind, but Melissa McCarthy would be pretty good! 😀

  • Who or What inspired you to write this story?

I’ve wanted to write a novel for a long time, and when this idea popped into my head and I realised there was enough mileage for it to be a novel, I went for it. And once I started, I knew I wouldn’t stop until it was finished.

  • What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

What, if they’re not already hooked by the country house, Jeremy Renner or Jared Padalecki? Perhaps the fact that Alice, the lead female, is put through a series of  kinky tasks in her time at Davenport Manor – and enjoys being submissive.
