Special Author Spotlight ~ Lynn Myshe' Joseph



Please help me welcome Lynn Myshe' Joseph to the blog today!

Without further ado........

Tell us a little about yourself.
Married, mom to 3 beautiful children-I have a handful at home!
Began writing at the age of 15 and 15 years later, I still love it- I work in corporate America by day, so at night, I release by writing when I can

Did you always want to be an author?
Yes! I knew from the 13 I wanted to writer and be an author- My parents always told me I had a penchant for getting my way across with words so have teachers, friends, etc. so I knew I was destined to be an author.

What is your favorite part of being a writer/author?
Being able to create characters and build worlds that aren’t limited- I love the fact that one day, people will see my works, and whether good or bad, I’ll appreciate it.

Tell us a little about your book.
Well, it’s an anthology of fantasies that we ALL have had at one point in our life; from being “shared”, having an intimate encounter with a sexy co-worker or being able to bed your favorite celebrity- the stories provide a little of background and plot, but it kicks it all into gear once the intimacy begins.

When did you start writing and when did you finish your first book?
I start writing this book last December and I finished in March, published April- it went pretty fast!

Where do you get your inspiration?
I have a VERY vivid imagination; I can overhear a conversation at work and plot an entire scene or story-- Hubby is also an inspiration, but not in the way you think! (wink)

Do you plot and outline or do you just write?  Plotter or Pantser?
I just write; I sit down and pound out 4000 words and then go back to see where I need to add or take away-for my next book, I have begun to plot and I am loving the way it’s turning out, but I just get to it and write.

Can you tell us a little about the process of getting your first book published?
It kinda smacked me in the face- I was on Google looking for publishing companies, sending emails, etc. within 2 hours, I got a reply from a publisher, saying she wanted to feature me on her site- once I mentioned I wanted to get published, she sent me the contract! I edited, re-read, edited more and sent her the final draft..I am lucky to have such a great editor to work with and I know many do not get that lucky the first time out.

What book have you most recently released?
Submit to your Fantasies

What was your favorite part of the book?
The Domme I asked For- I really got into that one and I feel it’s the best in the book.

Rate your story in terms steaminess?
The entire book I would rate as VERY steamy- some BDSM and explicit sex scenes.

Do you have another book in the works?
I have 2 actually in the works- they will be novellas and then I’ll go for the gusto and complete a full novel.

What advice would you give new authors?  What have you learned about the business?
DON’T GIVE UP! It took me 15 years to get to this point and if you keep going, you will be there as well and you have to want it- be passionate!
So far, I have learned it’s a competitive market, but that won’t deter me- Im not looking to be on the NY times bestseller- I’m happy just knowing a few people out there have like the works of Lynn Myshe’ Joseph!

Boxers or Briefs?
Briefs- Love to see the clinging like a second skin- that’s sexy.

Pizza or hamburger?
Pizza- deep dish- Chicago style!

Beer, Wine, or mixed drink?
Mixed drinks- all the time!

If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?  Would you write or read there, or do something else?
Greece- I want to lie on the white sand beaches and blue, blue ocean and just take it all in- I’d write, write and write more- places like that inspire creativity.

Character Questions: 
From the story, The Domme I asked For- Benjamin and Sophia:
What were your first impressions of each other?
Benjamin- Sophia was just this……exotic creature that I couldn’t take my eyes away from- and I still can’t
Sophia ( Giggles)- Benjamin’s eyes held me- blue, with a touch of gray and so penetrating- it’s like they looked right through me(Giggles again)
Benjamin- See that giggle she does? Its my undoing

What’s your favorite characteristic of each other?
Sophia- Other than his eyes, I’d have to say his hands- they are big, warm and when he touches me, I hate to sound cliché’ but I melt all over him
Benjamin-Her lips-full, moist- so damn kissable…can we end this interview now?

What are your plans for the near future?
Benjamin- well, I plan to take her to bed- No! I’m kidding- am I? But really, this gal has me hooked and I’d hope that the woman I saw I’ll see more of (Sophia giggles)
Sophia is a classic beauty with a hell of a brain and so far, its been amazing-
Sophia- We have awesome chemistry, which makes it easy for us to be with each other- our friends and family all gag when we come around, so that’s a good sign. Right?
Benjamin- You know it is, Mistre-, I mean, Sophia (smile wickedly)
Sophia- (Giggles)

Here is a short treat from Benjamin and Sophia's story!


**Contains explicit language**

“Welcome.”
A throaty, raspy woman’s voice rang in his ear, making his cock go from half-staff to full-on salute and when he began to turn so he could face her, she abruptly jerked him back into position. The sudden movement stunned him.
“No turning around, Benjamin.”
She patted his ass and worked her moist tongue on his ears, nipping the lobes with her teeth. So, Sophia was hiding a naughty side to her?
A snicker escaped his lips. “Damn, the shy ones are always the sex kittens, aren’t they?”  She laughed and continued to wind her tongue, now to his neck, offering another pinch of teeth. He hissed and shuddered from the sensation of her tongue there, pondering what her tongue was going to feel like on the shaft of his dick as he looked into her eyes , on her knees, beneath him, taking him deep. He reached behind to touch her and she whacked his ass, hard. A groan escaped his lips.
“No touching, Benjamin. Now, be a good little boy, and you will get so much from me. Understand? Nod your answer.” Her voice went from throaty and soft, to now husky and challenging, enticing.
Hmm….seemed as if he was in for a treat this evening.
