Cave Author Paisley Smith Interview
Give up a
big welcome to author Paisley Smith! Paisley’s got a very hot free
read available for immediate download, and she’ll also be giving
away a prize in the contest section above. So kick back and get to
know this great lady who happens to own one extremely talented pen.
Paisley, thanks so much for your time! Could you tell us a bit about
yourself before we talk books? Background, career(s), family, where
you hail from, how long you’ve been writing, hobbies, just anything
to lay the groundwork for who Paisley Smith really is?
Thanks for the warm welcome, Titania! I grew up in a small town in
the south and have been writing since before I could read. My first
stories were picture books, usually inspired by a favorite movie or
tv series. I’m still an old school southern girl, the type who shuns
white after Labor Day and always remembers to send thank you notes.
What’s a day in the life of Paisley Smith like? Take us through your
routine, your writing habits, your research, everything you’re
willing to out. :-D
I’m early to bed and early to rise. I usually start my day by
checking emails, facebook, websites, favorite forums, and then I get
to work writing. Since I write F/F and F/F/M contemporaries, I don’t
have to do a lot of research but I’m toying with an F/F historical
idea that will require me to delve into Renaissance Italy. I’m a
total “pantser” when it comes to writing but I’ll plan the next
scene out in my head — usually about two in the morning.
sorts of main genres and sub-genres do you prefer to write? Do you
have plans to branch out into other genres?
I write lesbian and bisexual contemporary romance but am planning to
write a lesbian historical.
publisher(s) do you write for?
I write for Ellora’s Cave.
poking around on your website, I got a giggle out of the “Want a
taste of Paisley?” sidebar note. Very catchy considering it’s a
clever play on the title of your Ellora’s Cave Naughty Nooners free
read, FIRST TASTE. I’ve always loved reunion premises, and this one
didn’t disappoint. Where did you get the idea for this fabulous,
highly evocative short story? Could you please direct my members to
a link where they can download FIRST TASTE for free?
Well…ahem…all writers write from some sort of experience. Don’t
they? (blushing) First Taste was definitely a combination of my own
experiences and fantasies mingled with a story I hope readers will
enjoy. The cover has a man and woman on it but the story is F/F. You
can download it free at
were blessed by the cover gods with your recent release BIRTHDAY
GIRL. Did you have any input into the cover design? How did you come
up with the idea for this hot-hot ménage story?
Thanks! I was tickled pink by the cover. I love the subtlety of the
girl’s hands covering the other woman’s breasts. Very sexy! I sent a
cover request to the talented art department at Ellora’s Cave with
photos of a couple of models who reminded me of my heroines but I
was pleasantly surprised by the finished cover! Once again, I have
to admit, I relied on a combination of experience and pure fantasy
for the story idea. I think I’m going to put the bark and bite
paddle used in Birthday Girl on my Christmas wish list.
can readers go to get a sample of and/or buy BIRTHDAY GIRL?
Ti: As a
new Paisley Smith fan, I went scouring the net and noticed you have
an upcoming Quickie with Ellora’s Cave titled BEYOND CURIOUS. Is it
a regular Quickie or an Exotika? I’m dying to know what it’s about.
Can you give us a little blurb?
Since Beyond Curious has a happily ever after ending, it will be a
regular Ellora’s Cave Quickie. Here’s the blurb:
is only taking piano lessons because it was her grandmother’s dying
wish but when she meets Emily, her sexy piano teacher, both their
lives take an unexpected turn.
Emily knows her
lesbian student should be off limits but she cannot deny her
overwhelming attraction to Annie’s androgynous beauty and soon,
Emily finds herself surrendering to a long suppressed lust that just
might lead her to the love of a lifetime.
you have a release date yet for BEYOND CURIOUS?
I’m not sure. Possibly as soon as December.
else do you have in the works in the way of works in progress?
Anything newly contracted that you can spill about?
Not at this time.
there anything else you’d like to share with us? News, website, blog,
Twitter, Myspace, a newsletter, anything at all?
Since my first book was released in October, I’m fairly new to all
the social networks. Please visit my site at

It’s Gemma’s thirty-second
birthday. She’s not surprised when her gorgeous husband Nate whips
out the blindfold and orders her to bend over for a birthday
spanking. What does surprise her is that Nate has enlisted
the help of a friend. Another woman!
Lindsey is a sexy Bohemian
artist who has starred in Gemma’s fantasies for a long while. She
doesn’t know what will happen beyond this single night of scorching
sex play, but for now, Gemma fully intends to enjoy every new touch,
taste, sight and sound her “birthday gift” has to offer.
“You’re going to get ten
licks at a time, birthday girl,” he said huskily.
Heady intoxication flooded
me. My bottom was hot. Alive. Ready for more. I was thirty‑two today
and wanted every last lick I was due and one to grow on.
“Who—” I began again,
desperate to know who was in the room with us, but Nate silenced me
with a finger to my lips.
“Come to the bed,” he
said, leading me.
My knees trembled so
violently I would have collapsed had Nate not been at my side. He
loosened my bonds as we moved in tandem. I thought for a moment he
might free me so that I could rip off my mask and identify the
phantom paddler but Nate was too fast.
My hands were swept in
front of me, bound again, but this time with a length of fabric Nate
could obviously hold and control. He lifted me and tossed me on the
bed, joining me only to secure my hands to the headboard so they
stretched high above my head.
So much for ripping off
the blindfold. “Remind me not to give you any more neckties,” I said
with a smirk.
The bed sank as the third
person climbed on. My breathing quickened. I could hear my heart
pounding in my ears.
“Now you’re going to get a
lick of a different kind,” Nate said. That Cheshire Cat smugness had
returned to his voice.
My pulse stampeded at the
thought of a stranger eating my pussy. Who was this? Was Nate
actually going to watch another man fuck me?
“Spread your legs,” Nate
When I did not immediately
comply, he lifted them, holding my ankles effortlessly up and open.
A torrid blush infused my cheeks that I was spread wide for a
