Jason Luke Guest Blog and Giveaway ~ BDSM Week at Sinfully Sexy

bdsm week

It’s our very great pleasure to welcome Jason Luke back to Sinfully Sexy as part of our BDSM week.  Back in February, when Jason release Interview With A Master, he managed to tap into a relatively unexplored niche in the BDSM genre – BDSM erotic romance written by a male author from the male protagonists point of view.  It was refreshingly different and took the indie romance world by storm.

 

As part of our BDSM week, we asked Jason to talk a little about finding himself suddenly very famous for being a man in a largely woman’s world.  You can read our review of Interview With a Master and read our interview with the man himself by clicking here.

A Man in a Woman’s World!

By Jason Luke

 

When I sat down and began writing ‘Interview with a Master’, it never once occurred to me that I was doing anything any different to a million other writers who have self-published books.

I was simply telling a story that I happened to feel was interesting.

I wrote the book, and in my mind – from the first page to the last – it was always a BDSM erotic novel. I never once considered it to be a romance, or even very romantic.

Imagine my surprise when thousands of women around the world became infatuated with the relationship between Jonah and Leticia!

After the book was published a lot of people congratulated me for my shrewd marketing – admiring the fact that I was a male author who had cleverly spotted a niche in the market, and written a book about BDSM from a male author’s perspective.

I wish I had been that smart… but I wasn’t.

I had no idea whether there were any other male authors writing in the genre… and I still don’t. I don’t read BDSM, or erotica… or romance. There could be a million other guys writing the same kind of books as me – I wouldn’t know them if I fell over them in the street.

I just wrote a story I was interested in telling.

Now, suddenly I am a male author writing erotic romance… how the hell did that happen?

And why is it so special?

I can’t answer that – but I can tell you that writing my kind of stories comes with some responsibilities.

I know my readers are largely women, and for that reason, I deliberately try to write evocative scenes that include all the senses. For us guys, the graphic descriptions are more than enough to spark our imaginations… but writing for a female audience means that I write more descriptively, and I see the scene from a ‘wider’ view than just the physical action. Smells, the sounds, the feelings from a touch… I amplify all those things because I want the scene to appeal to my readers – not to other guys.

I still refuse to accept that I am a guy writing romance novels! No way! I write BDSM erotica…

I really do! Please believe me!

Jason Luke.

Synopsis

For several weeks, Jason Luke appeared on Facebook pages from around the globe and wrote live scenes based on the suggestions of readers.
It was a fun, and grueling challenge. Hundreds and hundreds of readers posted brilliant suggestions, asking him to write scenes that used characters from his book, ‘Interview with a Master’.
Most of the scenes involve the main characters, Jonah and Leticia, but the other characters in the book also make an appearance… and in several of the scenes, Jason actually appears- interacting with the fictional characters he created!
At the end of the book are 30 brand new scenes that he wrote after the Tour with suggestions from his readers on his Facebook page. These are scenes that no one has read before now.
These paragraphs were not written as excerpts from the upcoming sequel. They are stand-alone scenes that have a life of their own, and are not part of any future book.
Enjoy!
SPOILER WARNING: There are many spoilers in this book as it was intended to be read after reading Interview with a Master.
