BDSM & Burnout

Would you believe I sometimes get burned out writing BDSM? It’s true. The psychology behind the lifestyle is very intense and I’ve found I can only stay in a character’s headspace for a certain amount of time—regardless of the genre I’m writing. Don’t get me wrong, I love that aspect about translating BDSM scenes onto paper for the characters, but it can be very powerful. So much so that I can’t write it all the time because it’s sometimes emotionally exhausting.

Since I’ve spent the better part of this year working on various projects dealing with BDSM, I’ve actually had to step away from writing them for the moment. Everything I have working now is still erotic romance, just without BDSM. No worries though, I have two projects I’m slated to start work on at the beginning of the year that both deal with BDSM. So it’s back into the thick of things I go!

If you are interested in mixing a little sci-fi/futuristic with your BDSM, check out my newest release—No Restraint. It’s the 3rd short in the Sypricon Masters series and all three books are completely standalone. The 4th book, Slow Break, will release on December 16th.

For years, Kegan Riley has been under the intense scrutiny of the public eye. The demand of competing on the Aeronautical Racing Circuit has forced her to tuck away her lifestyle choices and put her racing first. But when the opportunity for a quick break from the chaos presents itself, she detours to Tawse, a BDSM club on the frontier planet, Sypricon.

Walker knew something was special about the gorgeous hot-shot racer the moment she stepped through the club’s doors. He doesn’t care about her fame and fortune; he just wants her underneath his control. Before long, Kegan confesses the dark secrets of her soul and Walker is certain it won’t be long until he shows her how unrestrained submission can heal her damaged heart.

See this is why you write good BDSM - you get the emotions involved. All relationships are about trust, but playing a scene takes it to another level and it is exhausting.

That's why I love the details you add about after-care. It's so important to both parties. Not just for building trust, but on a physical level.

Breaks (slow or not :P) are necessary. So sit back and relax, because you're doing it right.

You gotta do what's best for you. And you *do* write the best!

Stay well!

You write BDSM very well. The first book I read with BDSM was Hardware. I agree with Misa - the emotions you portray in the stories make them more appealing.

Your other books rock too, though. Always anxious to read your stories. :)
