Interview, Guest Blog and Giveaway with Leslie Lee Sanders




Welcome Leslie Lee Sanders. Thank you for joining us today.

Thank you for having me, Roxanne. I’m thrilled to be here.

Q; How long have you been a writer? What was your first published work?

A: Well, technically, I’ve been writing most of my life, but first considered myself a writer in 2005 when I published Three’s a Crowd. Three’s a Crowd, or TAC which I like to call it, is MMF erotic fiction or erotic romance as most folks would call it. A description in five words? Three college students in love. Now, image all the possibilities in a story with that tagline.

Q: Out of all the stories/books you’ve written, which is your favorite?

A: I’ve written five books since Three’s a Crowd and that includes one revised and extended edition of the same book. By far, TAC is my favorite. I favorite TAC so much that I continued writing the story as a free series which I update regularly. I know, I know but what can I say? I’m an addict.

Q: Do you have a favorite character that you’ve created? One that is especially close to your heart?

A: Hmm . . . To pick one character is very tough. The three main characters of TAC are like my babies. Each of them has something special about them that make the story what it is. For instance, Marc, who just might be my favorite, is the ying of Brian’s yang. He’s the complete opposite of his lover. He’s a little anxious, totally average and low-key. But despite what one would think are his flaws he’s also funny, outspoken and crazy fun in bed. I think of Janice as a mixture of both Brian and Marc or neutral, the balance of the two personalities. But Marc’s insecurities about how others perceive him mixed with his certainty of who he is, is what makes him my favorite.

Q: Do you have a set schedule for writing or do you just go with the flow?

A: I flow. I’m a flowing writer. I refuse to schedule a specific time to write even if my life depended on it. Otherwise I’d be late, I’ll get fussy, and whine and cry because nothing is going as planned. No, not really. It’s just easier to go with the flow when it comes to writing.

Q: Do you need to be in a specific place or atmosphere before the words flow? Do you have a ritual that you do before sitting down to write?

A: Now that’s a question and the answer is yes. I need a specific atmosphere before I could allow the words to flow. The writer hat is only one of the many hats I wear. Another hat I wear is the mommy hat. You know, the one with finger-paint and smears of chocolate syrup on it? I have trouble getting into a story when an 11 and 8 year old are running around complaining about their doll’s missing limbs. Once they’re at school or asleep, it’s writing time.

Q: If you could offer one tidbit of information for new writers, what would it be?

A: Do not think just because you’ve written a book that it is an automatic bestseller. Newbies are prone to this kind of thinking; even I had to learn the hard way. It takes reading, learning and continued writing to hone your craft. Trust me. It’s may be possible to be that renowned bestseller of your dreams but it requires very, very hard work to just scratch the surface.

Q: Do you have a “day job” or do you write full time?

A: Yay, for caregivers! To help support the household I also work as a caregiver for disabled adults. Before caring for the disabled I was a medical assistant. I think it’s my nature to care for people in need. But referring to your previous question, I think all new writers should know that most writers need a second job to support their families. Unless you are as gifted or as lucky as Stephanie Myers, you’ll need a second source of income especially at the beginning of your writing career.

Q:What are some of your hobbies besides writing?

A: Believe it or not I sing and record my own music and I also oil paint seascapes and landscapes, all for fun. But what I enjoy doing most is making funny movies, music videos and commercials with my two little girls.

Q: In closing, tell us a bit about your latest release. Feel free to share an excerpt.

A: BladePublishing.org has published my novella What a Girl Wants in 2009. What a Girl Wants is also an erotic story that leans toward the threesome category.

Blurb:

Trisha has a lot on her mind and it all relates to her material possessions. Her neighbor Kato tries convincing her that he can make her happy, as her lover, but she’s convinced that he has nothing to offer. Later he shows up with a gift and her desire peaks. She can’t refuse the gift or him.But they both have secrets.Trisha’s been sleeping with Kato’s best friend, Bryson. He’s the rough bad boy that knows what a girl wants. But when the boys put on a late night window show, she’s left aroused and surprised. Is Kato sleeping with Bryson too?Feelings start to emerge which leaves her confused and intrigued. She’s an exhibitionist with an obsession for material things, and two gorgeous men want her. Can she erase her greedy side? Can she make them all one happy trio?


Excerpt:

Kato walked toward the door and Trisha quickly grabbed his hand to prevent him from leaving.

“This is the best gift I’ve ever gotten from anyone.” She held his hand as she spoke. “I do appreciate it.”

She pressed her other hand against the baby soft skin of his cheek. He smiled warmly while looking into her eyes. She took the chance and moved her lips forward, brushing them across his. He let out a moan and she took that as an invitation. She kissed him deeply and seductively.

Slowly, she felt the tip of his tongue with hers and felt heat under his caresses. He gently rubbed up and down her back and let his hand tangle in her hair. Suddenly her head went back as he gently pulled her hair to gain access to her neck.

Trisha wasn’t expecting that but she nearly melted. She was surprised that he was aggressive when he was aroused and she liked it. He nuzzled her neck, gently biting and sucking. Trisha let him taste her heated flesh as long he kept her tingling. For giving her the shoes she could give him that much.

“Put your shoes back on.” His voice was deep and filled with lust. “I want to feel you while you’re wearing them.”

Trisha didn’t object at all. Quickly, she put her shoes back on and threw herself in his arms again. Trisha was so wrong in assuming he was an inexperienced boy. He kissed her more passionately than Bryson ever did and he took charge naturally. His arms were strong, a plus. She knew because he lifted her up and sat her down on the countertop. He stood between her legs and slid her shirt up and off.

Trisha let him fondle her breasts. He gathered them in his hands and gently squeezed. He pressed them together and smothered his face between them, breathing into her cleavage. She loved the feeling of his hot breath between her breasts. He massaged them in his hands and rubbed his thumbs over her erect nipples. Then he clasped his warm, wet lips over the hard nub and sucked it.

“God,” Trisha moaned and let her head fall back. She reached down between their bodies to rub the hardness in the front of his jeans. Doing that made her crave it. “Will you make me feel good, Kato?”

“I’ll do whatever you want me to.” His voice caught for a second. “I’ve been waiting for so long.”

Trisha quickly unbuttoned and unzipped his pants, stuffing her hand inside of his boxers to feel him. She grabbed his erection and gently squeezed, feeling it jerk slightly in her hand.

“You’re so hard.” She loved the feel of a hard man in her hand.
“For you.” He kissed her neck. “Always for you.”

“Did you bring a condom?” She always practiced safe sex no matter how wet and ready she was.

Kato reached into his pocket and pulled one out. Trisha snatched it from his fingers and placed the corner of it in her mouth. With her hands she tugged his jeans down over his hips and watched his hardness spring to life. It smacked against his stomach as she freed it. She didn’t waste any more time. She opened the packet with her teeth and pulled the latex out. She placed it over his gorgeous cock and grabbed him, wrapping her legs around his hips.

“You sure you want it in the kitchen?” Kato asked.

No man had ever made it to her bed. “Yes,” she said. “I want it here.”

“You won’t regret this.” Kato slowly pressed his thick erection into her waiting, hot pussy. They both let out a moan. He slowly thrust his hips gliding himself in and out. She felt every inch of him with her tightness. He groaned. “Trish, you feel so good.”

“Don’t stop,” Trisha panted. God, she was in ecstasy. The shoes on her feet made her legs look perfect. She felt like a celebrity. And Kato felt so good inside of her. She would have never guessed that he could make her feel so great and just like a woman. Trisha didn’t want to admit it but he was right, he knew what a girl wanted and he was proving it in the way he fucked her.

He pressed his face into her neck and licked and tasted her skin. “Oh, I could do this forever,” he moaned.


The Thrill of Threesomes in Erotic Fiction

If you browse the web pages of some of the more popular erotic romance e-publishers, you will find that most of them dedicate a category of their books to threesomes. They may label it threesome, ménage, or group. Despite the name they choose, I think it’s fair to presume “erotic romance with a sexual relationship involving three or more participants” is a very popular genre.
As popular as it may be, not every “group sex” reader enjoys all the different types of group sex or threesomes that are portrayed in fiction. Now, I’m a big fan of threesomes in fiction but only the MMF, MFM or MMM types. I don’t find enjoyment in characters who participate in sex with more than two people at a time. Ialso find it hard to enjoy lesbian sex or FMF fiction because it’s hard to find FMF reads, probably because they’re not so popular with the average female reader, and second I enjoy reading about sexy men way too much.

This, I believe, is the reason erotic fiction which features two men and a woman is so popular. Most erotic romance is aimed at the female reader. We read it, we write it and it satisfies us more than the traditional romance novel ever has. In ménage fiction, we love to read about strong female or male characters who are in love and lust and who has a bit of Superwoman or Superman hiding in them somewhere, yet we can still relate to them emotionally. It’s classic.

The Superwoman in our character is the girl that is so attractive inside and out that two men are willing to risk their reputation, friendships, careers, or what have you, to satisfy this woman and to win her heart. They’re even willing to share her, that’s how amazing she is. Also, a part of the Superwoman experience is that she is able to successfully satisfy two men at the same time. It’s as if she has amazing, sexual super powers. Wow, huh?

I believe that’s the thrill of threesome relationships in fiction. The thought of taking two men on the ride of their lives and having them both do the same for you. Even gay threesomes have that thrill attached to it. Any way you spin it, that Superwoman (or Superman) experience is what keeps me curled up on the sofa late at night with some good threesome fiction. It’s three times more fun to read. Wouldn’t you agree?
