  15. Congratulations on the release!! The cover is amazing.

    How do you decide what will be a short & what will be full length?


  16. I'm lovin' the concept of this story. Do you use image boards when you write?

  17. I just saw what Leni said. That is a good question.. but what are image boards? I will have to google that and see.

  18. Hi Everyone!!
    So sorry i'm later than usual.

    my day job is crazy but there was some accident on the expressway and it made the commute hellish.

    thanks for dropping by:)
    now to answer questions...

  19. Demented is a BDSM club that can handle paranormal creatures and humans playing together;)

    I don't know if I'll do more set here. It all depends how popular it is and if the muse strikes with more ideas. I haven't planned this out yet. This idea was out of the blue.

    It was so much fun, though. shifters and hot humans.

    hope you like it!


  20. writing erotic romance, I've been doing that for years!!

    it started when i was trying to write regular romance. I tried a Blaze for Harlequin (waited a year for a thanks but not quite there)....

    people loved my hot hot scenes so I tried my luck with Ellora's Cave and have been very very lucky ever since!


  21. do i put myself in those positions? LOL!!

    no, i don't try out anything personally. barbie dolls are very useful for positioning tests. but shifters etc is all up to the imagination.

    if i had that much fun with my writing, i'd never get anything written!!

  22. I really do enjoy writing these short stories, though. They let you jump into a set of characters for a brief, life changing story and make them very very happy.

    light bdsm is a great way to play with characters who have desires and needs to confess....

  23. do i prefer stand alones or series??

    I do a lot of series, right now i have two going (Lucky Springs and 7th Kind)and I'm planning a third...

    With the short shorts, I'm not sure how a series would feel. Such a brief don't really get to delve into the details as much. but the readers will decide if they like or not.

    a setting like demented could bring in a variety of characters whether they are connected or not...the club is a connection.

  24. no, i don't do image boards. my brain generally knows what it wants and needs to get the story out. if i spent time finding the right images, i wouldn't get as much written.

  25. the covers for these short shorts are made it batches and you get to pick from the available set when the book is accepted. so i get to pick the one that best fits my story.

    but for novellas etc there is a form and i get a lot more input on the content etc:)

  26. I agree that is one hot cover.

    Series are so much fun to read, I'm a serious series junky. Can you tell us anything about the other series you are planning?

  27. Wow Cheryl, Halloween Switch looks fabulous. I love the cover.
    What is your favorite type of hero to write about??

  28. Hey Cheryl,
    Congrats on the new release, the cover looks amazing.
    So what is your favorite paranormal species to include in your stories?
    AM Burns

  29. my favorite paranormal species??

    shifters are a ton of fun because you can make up all sorts of rules. or pack traditions.

    Next week I have a Mustang shifter novella coming out. Wild and fun, they roam...until they find the right woman.

    Shifters have endless possibilities:)

  30. My favorite kind of hero?

    I like the quiet confident ones. On the edge of alpha but more contained than arrogant.

    and when i'm writing menage+, the men need to be able to work together:)


  31. If you're a series junkie, I hope you're enjoying Lucky Springs and 7th Kind!!

    The new series won't be out right away but its female subs who want light bdsm, bedroom play only and are tired of finding Doms that want whips and cages etc. I'm in developing phase but I think it'll be a lot of fun:) strictly m/f light bdsm series. stay tuned!


  32. congrats on your release! i love the cover! its awesome! thanks for sharing! cant wait to read it! sounds very good!
