Author Interview with Julie Shelton #newrelease Keeping Sarah @sirenbookstrand #mfm

Please help me give a warm welcome to Julie Shelton, who has kindly agreed to answer my nosy questions, so here goes :-)

Q Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

A. I am a former children’s librarian, professional storyteller, and puppeteer.  I am the author of Kidstuff, an award-winning educational newsletter and Puppets, Poems and Songs, a language arts resource for early childhood educators.  I have been writing all my life, starting with a little play called “Fairies in the Garden”, which featured dialogue, music, and ballet.  I was nine.  I have written four books for Siren Publishers, Dark Warrior, an historical MFM Menage set in 14th-century England, and three contemporary, M/f/M BDSM romances, Loving Sarah, Owning Sarah, and now Keeping Sarah, the third and final book about Sarah Marshall, Jesse Colter, and Adam Sinclair.

Q. What made you write ‘this’ story?

AAfter I wrote Loving Sarah and Owning Sarah, I realized that I still had more of Jesse, Adam and Sarah’s story to tell.  I felt that the deepening love between Jesse and Adam needed to be explored further.  So I planned a short novella as sort of an addendum to Loving and Owning Sarah.  But this is Jesse Colter and Adam Sinclair we’re talking about and nothing comes easy for them.  So, their personal love story became enmeshed with an Albanian blood feud, attempted murder, a sex slave auction, betrayal and intrigue that turned a brief novella into the full-length thrill ride that is Keeping Sarah.

Q. Describe a typical day’s writing for you

A. I write sporadically, but steadily while I’m awake, be that in the daytime or at night.  When I’m inspired, I go at it for hours.  When I’m stuck, I can find plenty of distractions and have to force my butt into the seat.  So, I really don’t have a routine.  Since I’m retired, I don’t keep regular office-type hours and often intersperse my writing with several short naps rather than sleeping for eight hours.

Q. What inspires you?

A.  Everything I’ve seen, everything I’ve done, everything I’ve heard, every place I’ve ever been, everything I’ve ever dreamed.

Q. If you weren’t a writer what would you be?

A. Bored.

Q. Do your characters ever surprise you?

A. Originally, Loving Sarah started out as a straight M/f romance.  But when Jesse introduced his best friend, Adam Sinclair, it became an M/f/M romance with BDSM elements.  Actually, it became TWO M/f/M romances with BDSM elements, and a third, MMF romance with even more BDSM elements.  So, yeah, you could say my characters are full of surprises.

Q. What could you not do without when you’re writing?

A. Pie.

Q. What words of wisdom do you have for the aspiring authors out there?

A. Just put your butt in the chair and write.

Q. Where do you see yourself in ten year’s time?

A. Owning my own tropical island, plus a penthouse apartment in New York and an antebellum southern mansion in Atlanta, GA.  I will have multiple books on the New York Times and USA Today Bestseller lists and I will be on the cover of Forbes magazine as the wealthiest woman in the world, even wealthier than Oprah Winfrey.  I will also be forty years younger and have a bevy of hunky boy toys to keep me satisfied.  [Sigh]  It’s nice to have dreams, isn’t it?

Q. Do you have a favourite quote?

A. You go, girl.

Q. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block?

A. Of course.  There’s not a writer on the planet that doesn’t.

Q. What other books can your readers look forward to?

A. Oh, I am so glad you asked!  I am halfway through Passion’s Dream, the first in the new Passion Lake series about a bunch of former SEALs who buy a bankrupt town and turn it into a tourist destination.  Be on the lookout for the first three books of the series by the beginning of 2015.

Q.And finally can you share the blurb and excerpt with us?

Honeymooning in England, Jesse Colter, Adam Sinclair and their beloved wife, Sarah, are heading for their friend Thorne Cahill’s BDSM club for dinner when another car deliberately tries to run them off the road.  Thanks to their own driver’s skills, the other car is destroyed, the two unknown occupants killed.
Through Thorne, they discover that they’re the targets of a “blood feud”, instigated by Konstandin Sokolov, son of Viktor Sokolov, the Albanian mobster who had unwisely kidnapped Sarah a few months back, and paid for it with his life.  They also discover that Thorne’s guests, ruthless human traffickers, have gathered at the club for a slave auction being held the following night.  Konstandin Sokolov happens to be one of the buyers.
Fraught with treachery, betrayal, and deadly danger, Keeping Sarah keeps the reader on a knife’s edge of tension, while simultaneously exploring the deepening emotional and physical commitment between Jesse and Adam.  They already trust each other with their lives.  Now they must learn how to trust each other with their love.

Then Jesse turned to Sarah.  Bending down, he put his hands beneath her arms and lifted her up off the floor.  Turning her in his arms, he unhooked the garters, then unlaced the corset, letting it fall to the silk carpet.  As soon as the beautiful, but restrictive garment fell away from her, Sarah took the first deep breath she’d had in hours.  “Step out of your shoes, baby,” he crooned, rolling down her stockings and removing them one foot at a time.  “Now bend over and grab your ankles.  I owe you a spanking.”
With a whimper, she assumed the undignified position, her second of the night, wrapping her fingers around her ankles while he got on his knees behind her to remove the vibrators from her pussy and ass.  Dropping the toys on top of the crumpled corset, he palmed her ass cheeks, his flexing fingers making deep indentations in her sweet flesh.  “Spread your legs, baby, or you’re gonna fall over.”  A smile curved his lips upward as she slid her feet outward.  God, I love this ass!  He slapped her sharply, the sound and her subsequent cry loud in the quiet room.  “Count,” was all he said, transfixed by the erotic sight of his handprint blooming on her skin, first white, then red.
“Y-yes, Master.  O-one.”
“How many have you earned tonight, slave?”
“Ten, Master.”  Her voice was barely audible, muffled by her position.
“There will be no warm-up, so I’ll make them quick.  Count them all.”  In rapid succession, he delivered ten blistering swats to her backside and by the time she counted the last one, her ass was fiery red and she was sobbing in pain.
Crap, that hurt!  And yet, it felt so good.  So damn good.  The heat from her ass seemed to be having an effect on her clit, as if the two were connected by wires pulsing and crackling with electricity.  Her sobs turned into moans as he stroked and kneaded the heat more deeply into her flesh, sending it straight to her pussy until her clit felt like it was on fire.
Still gripping her ass cheeks, he lowered his head, slanting it sideways to flick the tip of his tongue across her throbbing little nub.  She jerked and cried out as pleasure consumed her.  Then he straightened, pulling her up after him, and steered her toward the bed.  If Adam was in sub-space, then Sarah was right there with him, lost and drifting and needing Jesse’s loving care.  It was now his duty and responsibility to love them and keep them safe and give them the pleasure they had both earned and richly deserved.
“Climb up, baby,” he said, assisting her up onto the bed.  “On your hands and knees above Adam, pussy over his face, head over his cock.”  As he was talking, he, too, was getting on the bed, crawling across its enormous expanse toward Adam’s feet.  “Legs apart,” he ordered and Adam slid his feet across the silky sheets.  “Prepare Sarah.”
At the quiet command, Sarah’s core convulsed again, sending out another gush of fresh cream.  God, she was so ready to come!  She had been so highly aroused for so long, now that it was finally going to happen, it was all she could focus on.  Without warning, Adam reached up and stroked his fingers through her slit, from front to back before thrusting two fingers deep inside her sheath hovering so tantalizingly above his head.  He pressed his thumb against her puckered anal opening, pushing insistently, until the muscle relaxed and sucked it in.  Sarah stopped breathing.  With wicked skill, he thrust in and out of both her anus and vagina, pinching the membrane between his thumb and fingers as he stroked, quickly re-stoking the fires of need in her sex, burning just beneath the surface.  A thin, high wail escaped her lips as pleasure devoured her.
“Christ, Jess,” Adam muttered over the wet, sucking noises his fingers were making as he pumped them in and out of Sarah’s sheath, “you should see what I’m seeing.  Our little slave has the most succulent pussy in the world.  And it’s dripping all over the place.”
“Sarah,” Jesse ordered, “Take Adam into your mouth.”

Eight years ago Jesse Colter fled his small town, leaving behind eighteen-year-old Sarah Marshall, broken-hearted and devastated.  Now a retired Navy SEAL, he’s back and he wants only one thing—Sarah Marshall—preferably bound, naked, and on her knees before him.
She has never forgotten Jesse.  He’s been the object of all her sexual fantasies since she was fifteen, as well as the star of nightly dreams that have become increasingly erotic over the years.  So when he suddenly reappears in her life, she is torn.  Can she trust him not to hurt her, or will he once again break her heart?  Warily, she agrees to let him introduce her to his world—the world of bondage, Domination, and erotic slavery.  When he also introduces her to his best friend, Adam Sinclair, Sarah faces a daunting future of sexual submission to two powerful alpha males.
But Sarah faces an even bigger challenge.  Someone is stalking her.  Is it the old enemy who’s just been released from prison?  Or is it someone else from her past who is determined to destroy any chance she has at happiness?  Can Adam’s and Jesse’s love protect her?  Or will her world explode in a cataclysm of betrayal and violence that will destroy them all?

Owning Sarah, back cover blurb
It’s been a month since Sarah Marshall was kidnapped and held at knife-point by her ex-fiance.  But Jesse Colter and Adam Sinclair, her two loving Doms, know that there is an even deadlier threat still out there—Ryder Malone.
He blames both Sarah and Jesse for sending him to prison eight years ago for attempted rape, and he’s determined to make them pay.  So, he begins a systematic campaign of terror and intimidation against them.  But the danger he poses doesn’t end there.
Set against the deepening love and commitment between Sarah, Jesse, and Adam, Owning Sarah is more than just a sexy, sensual, BDSM love story.  It is a harrowing race against time for Jesse, Adam, and a team of former SEALs to stop one of the biggest arms-for-drugs deals in U.S. history.  And to rescue Sarah before Malone sells her to a human trafficker and she’s lost to her men forever.
