2015 GFA Nominee DEADLINE: Best BDSM Book of the Year – Erotic Romantic Suspense

2015 GFA Nominee
It is my honour to announce that Deadline has been nominated for the “Golden Flogger Award” for Best BDSM Book of 2015. (DISCLAIMER: There is NO FLOGGING in this novel!)

As a nominee, I was recently interviewed for the BDSM Writers’ Con, where the winners will be announced in August.  Here is a portion of that interview…

 

What does being nominated for the Golden Flogger Award mean to you?

I am thrilled for DEADLINE to be included with these other novels because the list of nominees demonstrates the broad range of BDSM in the community. DEADLINE is an erotic romantic suspense, but the romance focuses on the hero and heroine discovering who they truly are through their sexuality. Comparatively speaking, it is rather light for BDSM, but it provides a realistic portrayal of the dynamic of a developing Dom/sub relationship.

Tell us a little about yourself and your writing works.

I typically write in deep, deep point of view, where we know all the thoughts and feelings of a character or characters. In DEADLINE, I wanted to stretch myself as an author and attempt a panoramic point of view, which is more like watching a film. It was quite an exercise, but I do not include any inner monologue for the main characters – neither the hero nor the heroine – which is quite unique for any kind of romance novel, BDSM or otherwise. Primarily, the only thoughts we read are the delusions of the killer.

What are you working on now?

I am finishing up a contemporary male/male romance novel entitled BETWEEN THE NOTES, another story of someone discovering his authentic self through his sexuality. After that, I will continue working on RETROGRADE, another erotic romantic suspense. An excerpt from that work in progress was included in the BDSM WRITERS CON ANTHOLOGY. It has been a fun novel to write!

What’s your latest book about?

DEADLINE is about author Gillian Tate who, after years struggling with sweet romance novels, finds overnight success with ménage erotic romance. When the second novel in the trilogy focuses on the gay romance, Gillian receives harassing anti-homosexual messages with Biblical passages from a hate group called the Sword of Michael the Archangel.
DEADLINE

Meanwhile, her husband has demanded a divorce because could no longer tolerate the notoriety of his wife’s novels and the innuendoes from his colleagues, and he also accuses her of wanting the ménage scenarios she describes in her novels.

Under a deadline to complete the third novel in the trilogy and distraught over her personal life, Gillian decides to get away from the city to clear her head. As Gillian settles into her remote cabin retreat in the Adirondacks with no phone or cell reception, her agent returns home to find her home office ransacked and her laptop missing. After hearing about the threats to her client, the police suspect the hate group may be involved.

After being notified of the threats by the authorities, the local police chief Sam Taylor checks on Gillian at her cabin. Taylor has heard of the notorious author, and he is surprised but pleased to find the voluptuous woman he meets is nothing like he would have imagined from her novels but everything he has dreamed of in his fantasies. He reads one of her books, and it unleashes his own Dominant desires. They begin a sizzling love affair, fulfilling each other’s fantasies, but the increasing violence of the Sword of Michael the Archangel casts a shadow on their nascent relationship.
