His Cherished Sub & His Forever Sub

 

Why did you begin writing BDSM novels?
Originally, I began writing erotic contemporary romances under a different pseudonym, which leaned to powerful, commanding Alpha males. I realized early on that the way I wrote did not always appeal to that market and decided to explore the BDSM genre. I have read every book of Cerise Sinclair, Sienna Cartwright, Lexi Blake and many other longtime BDSM authors and realized the subject matter appealed to me greatly. In fact, I wrote the first four books of the Club Alpha Cove series within a period of two months and had so much fun that I knew I found my niche. The exchange of power within a BDSM relationship is enigmatic and compels a person to really open their mind to what it means to truly trust another human being. The depths of emotion that run through these couples are very real and very intense; it makes exploring the world of BDSM incredibly exciting.

Do you participate in D/s activities or merely write about them?LinziBasset2
I participate in D/s activities through my writing, which is an amazing trip and one I enjoy more with every book I write. The power exchange and serenity that come with submission are beautiful. Even just writing about it, it flows through me and yes, with the right partner, there are certain activities I would love to explore. *wink, wink*

Where did you get your information on this lifestyle?
Reading and research have always been a passion of mine. Luckily, there is a plethora of information readily available; the trick is to discern legitimate sources from the pure fantasy. As I have progressed along this journey, readers and participants of the lifestyle have been fantastic resources. Finally, I have the assistance of my wonderful editor, who is in the lifestyle herself.

What does being nominated for the Golden Flogger Award mean to you?
This came out of the blue and I was pleasantly surprised. I have been writing in this genre for less than a year, so for His Cherished Sub to be nominated is an honor. It indicates to me that there are readers who enjoy not only my style of writing, but also the content of my stories. That alone provides all the motivation I need to continue producing stories that titillate everyone’s mind!

Do you conduct any advocacy work in this lifestyle or is it strictly fiction base for you? If so, what?
Currently my work is strictly fiction based, but I find it extremely important to ensure that the correct message about the genre is delivered to the readers. BDSM has historically been a taboo subject and in a way, it still is. People have the tendency to criticize what is foreign to them and I hope to enlighten people about the possibilities of the lifestyle through my stories. The bottom line is, there is a difference between what is consensual and what is abuse. As a writer, I hope to convey that participation in BDSM or kink is consensual, healthy, and in no way constitutes abuse.

LinziBasset1 (2)Will you be attending BDSM Writers Con or other events we can meet you at?
I truly hope that I am able to attend. Also, I am going to do my utmost to attend the
BDSM Writers Con in August 2016. In the meanwhile, I invite you to visit my webpage www.linzibasset.com or follow me on Twitter @LinziBasset.

A little bit about me most people don’t know…
My imagination has always had a tendency to run wild, even at a young age. I used to daydream staring at the clouds, lost in a world of my own, building a story that I became immersed in fully.

In the early nineties, I published two novels, which was when my love for writing romance began. However, the turn of the wheel of life began and prevented me from furthering my writing career at the time. It wasn’t until the beginning of 2014 that I began writing contemporary romance novels, under a different pseudonym. Those novels were hot and steamy, with serious Alpha males.

I realized quickly enough that my imagination leaned toward domination and submission and I started to explore the realm of BDSM. I read every book I could get my hands on and in January 2015, I ventured into the world of BDSM by writing a series that revolved around an elite BDSM club. The Club Alpha Cove series made its debut mid-January 2015 and I have not looked back since.

His Cherished Sub, the tenth and final book in the series, was written with a tinge of Linzi Bassett, BDSM Writers Con, Charley Ferrerbittersweetness in my heart. I have grown to love each and every one of the characters interwoven throughout the series and it was as though I were saying goodbye to them. It was the end of an era that began with His FBI Sub. However, the turning of the final page in the Club Alpha Cove series is only the beginning of the next Linzi Basset BDSM series… Club Wicked Cove

Linzi Basset dabbles in the corporate world by day and writes erotica by night, and never the two shall meet. Her works are sweltering erotic fiction drenched in BDSM elements, spanking, ménage, and love. Not one to skimp on pleasure, there are bits of humor, suspense, and action thrown in for fun. These aren’t your perfect, twenty-something, submissive girls; no, these are real women with real life experience. There is something for everyone

Linzi is an Amazon.com Best Selling Author with twelve titles currently in circulation and a new BDSM series on the way in 2016. With every book breaking into the top 100 on Amazon, titles like His FBI Sub, His Defiant Sub, His Forever Sub, and His Cherished Sub have spent their fair share of time in the top five.
