Laci Paige shows her dedication to her craft and especially her fans as she returns for the third year in a row to BDSM Writers Con proving there’s always more to learn in the amazing world of Dominance and submission.
Laci is a wonderful fun loving person who has a wealth of creativity and playfulness to her personality. I’m sure you’ll love the stories she writes.
Below are a few questions we asked Laci to help you get to know her better.
What got you started in writing BDSM ?
A couple of years ago I was looking for something to read, and came across a few free reads on Amazon about the BDSM lifestyle. I was intrigued. So I read them and became even more intrigued. I wanted to know more. I hit the internet – reading blogs, interviewing people, reading books, and attending events and conferences all in the name of research.
Why are you attending BDSM Writers Con ?
I’ve attended events before for romance and/or erotic authors, but never a BDSM specific event until summer of 2013 when I attended Dr. Charley’s BDSM for Writers Workshop. I enjoyed it, and learned a lot. It’s very specific, where everyone has something in common, whether it’s living the lifestyle, reading about it, or writing it, we all have common ground. I look forward to learning more at this year’s BDSM Writers Con 2014, and mingling with like-minded authors & fans.
What did you think of your first experience to Dr. Charley’s BDSM education?
I thought it was an excellent experience. I learned the in’s-and-out’s from experienced people. It helped me with my writing, and believe it or not, my personal life too. From the basics on up, Dr. Charley covered a wide range of the lifestyle dynamics, as well as lining up some pretty awesome guest speakers – who also write and live the lifestyle.
Do you take hints on stories from fans?
I can say that I read all of my reviews, comments on my social media, and messages from my inbox. I don’t get story ideas from my fans, but sometimes if they question things it prompts me to do more research. I did have a few people comment on something specific in one of my books, and after asking around the answer was 50/50 so I actually revised and tweaked my story because of the strong response on both sides of it.
What story have you always wanted to write but haven’t?
There are so many things in my head that I want to write but haven’t, that I don’t know where to start. The past year I’ve enjoyed reading m/m. So that might be my next venture.
Laci Paige is author of the Silken Edge Series. The books are a fictitious series about a group of people who are into the BDSM scene. Each book follows a different couple as they grow and learn to discover more about themselves in the lifestyle, and their relationships.
The Silken Edge won an UP Author Award, and has hit the #1 spot twice on Amazon for Erotica. Laci’s stories always end with HEA or HFN, and her husband is always a willing participant when she needs some hands-on research.
