Welcome Breathless Press Author DD Symms
Traveling and Erotic Surprises
Amber, it’s great being a guest blogger. I’m writing this while on the road—a theme of my erotic stories. Traveling fills us with heightened expectations of fun when we set out and if disappointments strike—like a missed flight or a car gone bust—the “bummer” factor increases dramatically, much more than if the problem at happened at home.
Road Trips and Love
Dealing with disappointment on the road and discovering help, hope, and erotic romance is the theme of my first two stories published this year: Layover and Riding Shotgun.
My third story, coming out September 30, is Getaway. The heroine, Marcie, heads to the mountains above Los Angeles for a mid-week getaway and to get over the breakup with her fiancée who cheated on her with a law partner.
She discovers conflict with another camper, Cole, who is rehearsing for a critical audition in what he thought was an empty campground. In the end, they discover what they have in common and develop a genuine affection.
What I enjoyed in writing Getaway was to weave the inner conflict of the heroine with her sexual desires and her awakening with Cole.
Each story has either an overt kinky-theme or underlying tone, even though the stories are not necessarily about BDSM. What I like about it is the characters make a discovery about themselves through role playing or pushing sexual boundaries.
In Riding Shotgun, the hero, Andrew has created a special playroom in his house and Brianna, the woman he rescues off the highway, seduces him to uncover his secret. He’s a dom with a sensitive side.
My new projects include Getaway being released September 30 from Breathless Press. I just finished a novel and that’s sent off to a publisher. A short story has been accepted for an anthology with Cleis Press and I’m going to pen a sequel to Layover.
2011 has been a strong year for my fiction and I’m finding new ways to develop my characters so the readers identify with them and connect with them at a deep level.
