Interview and Giveaway Confessions of a Sex Fiend Series by Rayven Godchild

What inspired you to become an author?

Reading. I fell in love with Judy Blume, Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and others at an early age. When I entered my twenties and discovered Zane’s world of delicious and naughty, I loved knowing that reading could be about more than sword and sorcery fantasy, that it could be about unspeakable dreams close to home, experiences that make a person’s eyes roll to the back of their head and bend their toes in the wrong direction from bodily over-exhilaration. So I decided I wanted to write stories I would also enjoy reading.

Do you write in different genres?

I do. As Rayven Godchild, I write erotica and erotic romance. Under my other name, Angela Brown, I’ve published a YA/NA series titled Shadow Jumpers, thus far consisting of a novel titled Neverlove and They All Fall Down, the follow up novella. The Shadow Jumpers series is a tale of redemption, of the hero and the heroine redeeming themselves from some of the darker places we go in pain and desperation. I’ve also published Frailties of the Bond and Atone, character-revealed novellas that are part of the NEO Chronicles and crosses paths with the Shadow Jumpers series. In the writing wings, I have a middle grade fairy tale smashup, a YA urban fantasy dystopian and my daughter, nicknamed Chipmunk, has inspired a few picture book story ideas.

If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

LOL! I actually can’t say I have a favorite, at least not as a writer. I’ve found that each genre (yes, especially picture books) come with their own set of expectations and challenges for the genre that must be met or addressed. Character voices differ significantly from PB books to, say, my Confessions of a Sex Fiend series.  I’ll admit that there is an allowance of fun that I can have with erotic stories that I really can’t have in other genres. It’s like the sexually imaginative part of me gets to fly freely and that makes for a ton of fun.

Is the book, characters, or any scenes based on a true life experience, someone you know, or events in your own life?

Chancellor Baltimore is a geek who has the rare opportunity to be discovered and pointed in the direction to become the sexual threat he can be, the tempter and satisfier…the fulfillment of women’s sexual dreams and fantasies. Although I have the tiniest awareness of the underbelly of the sex business, I can’t say any of Chancellor’s Confessions are based on any of my personal experiences or the experiences of those I know. Now, I wish my first time was half so wonderful as what was experienced in Tasting Cherry. Good grief! Woo! Oh my, sorry, I just think I would have become a sex fiend after what Chancellor did in that first story of the Confessions of a Sex Fiend boxed set.

What is your current “work in progress” or upcoming projects?

I am currently in the beginning stages for an erotic romance for Chancellor and his favorite temptress. Although his confessions have concluded with this boxed set, his story of love, sex, lies and drama have only moved to the next level.  The working title is LOVE’s NATURAL DISASTER but that could change as I work on this project.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Each story is a unique tale that deserves avoiding a formulary response. That takes time. As a single mother who works full time during the day, self-publishes, self-promotes, networks with other writers and still try to make time for writing…well, striking that perfect balance can be extremely challenging but worth the effort because of my love for my daughter, my passion for my writing, and the encouragement I receive from readers to keep sharing my stories.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

A favorite author? Oh dear, I couldn’t begin to name one author. I’ll reach back to Zane. Her works were that final straw that had an impact on me. After I read her story, Addicted, I couldn’t help a strong desire to write a story of my own. Her writing was always gritty and evocative.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Reading, and reading a lot, is paramount. It’s great to read craft books to help with enhancing one’s writing. But reading various stories in various genres, and taking a bit of time to analyze the things that pull you in or push you out as a reader, can be invaluable in building a writing style, developing character voice and producing wonderful manuscripts. Also, if you’re getting into writing because you want to be an overnight, rich best seller…well…good luck with that lol! I’m not saying that isn’t possible, but I’d advise to get in writing for the LONG haul.

Boxed Set

Book Description:

On the path to earning his degree in mechanical engineering, Chancellor Baltimore, geek-extraordinaire, experiences a detour of a lifetime. He discovers his inner sex fiend and an incurable yearning to be the fantasy, bring the pain, and ensure unbridled pleasure for his clients. But even he experiences a bump in the road. 

In Tasting Cherry, everyone has a first time.

In A View to Ecstasy, it’s so much more fun when there’s more than two in the tango.

In Retreat Bound, there’s pleasure in the pain.

And in Bound to Collide, Chancellor experiences a collision course that is inevitable.

Let’s enjoy these tales of a sex fiend as Chancellor continues to break the rule that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Shhhhh! Don’t tell anyone. They will be our little secrets…

Tasting Cherry ~

I grabbed Cherry by the arms and pulled her close. I hadn’t suspected those details. Honestly.
I thought back again to my first time with Denise. She spent hours gently nudging me from the awkward, nervous nipple sucker to a skilled clit-manipulator, G-spot hunter, and dick-dunker.
Still wrapped in my arms, I led Cherry to the kitchen table. “You probably feel ashamed, right?”
She nodded.
“Embarrassed, too, huh?”
She nodded and sniffled. “My mom didn’t talk to me for days. I wanted her to understand I was just curious, you know. I’ve been this goody-two-shoes girl all my life. I mean, it was just a cucumber. Then I thought, you know, some guys have their first time with professionals. Why can’t I? I just want to know…to feel…be filled…” Her breath hitched and she shook within my hold.
So close in each other’s space, I breathed in her heady scent of fresh berries. Something else teased my nose; a light sweet vanilla that damn near made my mouth water. I wedged my finger under her chin and tilted her face to mine. I looked into those pools of green innocence as they stared back at me, pleading with me to take the ignorance away, to turn the curiosity into fulfillment.
Refusing wasn’t even an option. Every part of me amped up to… Blow. Her. Fucking. Mind.
Leaning forward, I grazed my lips across hers, whispering, “Don’t ever be ashamed or embarrassed by your sexuality.” I cupped a hand to the back her neck, feeling shivers trail through her as I nibbled her ear and whispered again. “Mr. Baltimore’s going to take it all away, Cherry-baby.”
She sucked a breath through her teeth. “Please…take it…please…”

A View to Ecstasy ~

“Do you need to stop?” I asked.
“Hell no, Baltimore,” Marie answered. Sugary-sweet Snickerdoodle breath filled the space between us. “I can still move. I’m not done until you both break me in two.” A lust-filled grin kissed her lips. She flicked her tongue at me.
I flipped her around so she faced her husband. Her nipples jutted firm, dark and delicious like chocolate chunks, body ready for another rough fuck. I tore the condom wrapping with my teeth, pushing the latex free from the bottom of the package. With one-handed-experience, I rolled my helmet on, gripped Marie by the hips, and held her high above my cock. After one good bounce on the bed, I was thrusting upward into her leaking entrance.
She tossed her head back in ecstasy, pleading for me to fuck her harder.

Retreat Bound ~

“You’re late, Mallory.” His voice, so beautiful to my ears in that just-above-a-baritone kind of vibe, signaled disappointment.
I caught his gaze then cast my look downward. His smoky dark eyes were lust-filled and held a glint of mischief. “I’m sorry, Sir. It won’t happen again.”
I watched his shadow wave in dismissal of my words. “It will. You have certain obligations.” He paused, his voice husky as he spoke again. “But you know what this means.”
My nipples hardened and ached in anticipation. The first few times he’d practiced punishing me at my place, it went so well a couple of the neighbors thought something bad was happening. They had no clue my screams of pain were expressions of blissed out pleasure. Unlike my last Dom, Master Baltimore didn’t like the ball gag. He said it took away the music; that hearing me vocalize the joy and pain he brought me was kin to Mozart hearing his masterpieces conducted and played to perfection. So he turned one of the empty retreat rooms into his very own playground. I’ve been coming and cumming ever since.
“To me,” he commanded.
I glanced back at him, stuck in place by the need seething in his eyes. The hunger…

Bound to Collide ~

Warm fingers splayed upon my back, pressed firm, crushing me to his chest with reckless abandon.  His strong arms held me so close I dared not do more than grasp a hold of him and cling for dear life.
We shuffle-kissed to the bottom of the stairs. We’d barely made it up to the single curve in the stairs, before he broke the kiss, huffing out, “I can’t.”
“Can’t what?” My breasts swelled in his presence. My nipples ached for his touch. I needed the full length of him drilling into the depths of my pussy. What was with the ‘can’t’?
A glint shone in his eyes. I should’ve known better than to question him. “I can’t wait,” he growled. He peeled my slacks and panties off in one fell swoop. The clothes pooled in a heap at the foot of the stairs.

About the Author:

Rayven Godchild is an author of erotica/erotic romance short stories, novels and novellas. Her first published work appeared in a fit of obscurity during a tumultuous time in life. That story, Secret Lilies, will see the light of day again with a lot less stress and a lot more joy surrounding its republication in the very near future.

Currently, the Confessions of a Sex Fiend short stories are working their way out into the world, with the first one, Tasting Cherry, as Rayven’s re-debut as an author. A View to Ecstasy and Retreat Bound are available. Bound to Collide is the final confession, but certainly not the last the world will hear from Chancellor Baltimore.
