This was a story I've written way over a decade ago, before I stopped writing. I altered it since my writing style has changed.

AfterDark Online is pleased to do an interview with one sensual writer of erotica, who adds anticipation and such feeling to her stories. From the author of Summer’s Journey - Volume One & Two, Summer Daniels joins AfterDark Online for an interview.
2. How long have you been writing and what other genres do you enjoy writing?
I am a fairly new author. I’ve only been writing for a few months now, but it has been something I’ve wanted to do my entire life.
3. How do your friends and family feel about your writing?
My friends and family actually have no idea I am writing or published. I thought it would not be fair to my nieces and nephews in particular to discover some of the naughty things their aunt has been up to!
4. Being a self-publisher has been one challenge, which I can relate to, but what other challenges have you faced in your writing, but were so proud to accomplish?
The biggest challenge I have faced in writing has been finding dedicated time and energy. I work long hours in my day job, so finding motivation to write at the end of a long day has been difficult. I have started getting up early in the morning to write for an hour before the busy day starts.
5. When you read other people’s stories, what are you looking for? (comedy, romance, drama, or etc?)
I typically enjoy a wide variety of genres when I read, but I really enjoy thrillers, action/adventure, courtroom dramas and mysteries.
6. Tell us about your two books Summer’s Journey Volume 1 & 2. Please give us a short synopsis of the two?
The first two volumes of my Summer’s Journey series are the beginning of a larger True Romance / Erotica series. They chronicle the adventures I have been having since my divorce.
Volume One is an introduction with a lot of background information about what happened to my marriage, how I met Mark, and his unusual method of communication. It ends in a cliffhanger of sorts as my little black dress hits the hotel room floor.
Volume Two gets much more explicit as we find out what Mark has in mind for me in terms of expanding my sexual horizons. It picks up where Volume One left off and we get to see what happened after that dress hit the floor.
7. How long did it take for you to complete your work and what inspired you to do both books?
Both volumes took me approximately two months each to write. Given the relative short length of the volumes, I can definitely be categorized as very deliberate when I write.
The inspiration behind writing the series of books was really just a desire to share my story with others and explore my desire to write.
8. Understandably, the use of your main character is yourself. Were any of the events you wrote about were based on fictional or non-fictional characters?
Well you could say that all of the events I write about are based on non-fictional characters as this truly is a true romance / erotica series. I changed just enough details along the way to protect the guilty (Me!).
9. Will there be a Volume 3 in the future? Also, do you have any other projects in the future?
There is a Volume Three currently being written. The number of volumes to come after that actually is relevant to a central plot point of Volume Two, so I won’t disclose it here.
I have a number of other projects rolling around the back of my mind, but I am concentrating my efforts on the Summer’s Journey series at the moment.
10. Are there any other books you have written? If so, where can they be purchased?
No other books or stories to date.
11. To the readers of The AfterDark World, is there something trivial you would like to share about yourself?
I have a sweet tooth of epic proportions. Luckily I have a very high metabolism that counters it.
12. What advice would you give to other writers of erotica, especially for those that are starting out?
I would say the most important advice I can give when writing erotica is to remember that the brain truly is the largest sex organ. Do not underestimate the intelligence of your readers. Stimulate their minds and surely their bodies will follow.
13. Where can your books be purchased? Also, do you have a website, a blog, or social networking sites where they can follow you and your work?
My books can be purchased in the following locations:
Volume One: http://amzn.to/oMmFPb

Or send me an email – I’d love to hear from you:
Ms. Daniels, thank you so much for taking the time for this lovely interview. I am honored to have you on here in The AfterDark World, and I do look forward doing another one in the future. Also, good luck with your latest release. I will vouch that Volume 1 was enticing, and I recommend the readers to read Volume 2. :-)
Here is an excerpt from Volume Two – Alphabetical Assignation
My hesitancy at Mark seeing me naked disappeared completely as I heard him gasp softly when my dress hit the floor. I stood a little straighter and pushed my chest out a little more aggressively as I felt his gaze travel over me.
Pressing his body back up against mine, I could feel his hardness insistent and strong along my mostly naked ass. His hot breath warmed my ear as he spoke softly. “We have talked at length about control and trust, so I thought it was important to let you know what you might be expecting this evening. Our journey to this point has been a literary dance of flirtation and allusion. Now things are about to get very real.” Mark alternated between slowly grinding his hard cock against me as he spoke and pulling away, causing me to unconsciously push my hips back, seeking that physical connection once again.
“Your intelligence and literary verve have lent themselves to an idea for how to expand your sexual horizons while giving us both a great deal of pleasure. In that vein I will say that you have arrived here tonight for what I will call an alphabetical assignation. Over the next year, if you choose to continue on our journey together, you and I will explore the sexual alphabet together. Every two weeks, assuming you do not tire of me, we will meet in this very room for another lesson. Before you laugh or scoff at my idea, I want you to feel something.”
Mark guided my hand to feel his hardness. My pulse, already racing, accelerated even more as I felt his length through his silk boxer shorts. Honestly not having that much experience I could not tell you if he was larger than average, but compared to my ex-husband, he felt enormous.
Hey people, Hiyadoin? While SSS is taking a half-time, I'm going to go unofficial for a day.
This was supposed to be my last SSS for this story "About The Night Ride Home", but I'm going to post a snippet of it anyways, since I haven't come up with anything off the top of my head or from another WIP. However, here is a piece that should get you going this morning.
He has never faced a temptation like this before; a half-naked woman in his bed, begging him to sleep with her. Not to forget, that he too is feeling liquored up and his dick was growing hard just thinking about her. It’s been a while since he slept with someone, especially her; she was the best fuck ever, and a real gentleman would never tell another man about this. But something stopped him from going there with Darla; something that didn’t feel right at this moment.
He returned to his bedroom, with hopes that Darla would be out cold, passed-out, and to his relief she was lying in a fetal position, holding her pillow really tightly. The view of her was admiring; a half-naked beautiful woman sleeping like an angel. For a strange reason, he felt relieved. If she was awake, he would have given in to her desire. He placed a blanket over her out-cold body and walked toward the doorway, staring at her for another minute.
“Sleep well Darla,” as he turned off the lights, getting ready to retire in the living room.

Naughty Nights Press is giving away to one lucky person a copy of either Red Fire - Surrender or Raging Shadows. To win, all you need to do is leave a comment about which book you would prefer to win and why, along with your email address. Good luck to everyone!
Coming back for the second time, she was the first person I’ve ever interviewed and now she is back for the second time. The AfterDark World is pleased to introduce Cassandre Dayne, an extraordinaire author of such naughty, wicked tales. Thanks once again for coming here. What a pleasure!
Thank you so much for having me – I love talking with you.
1. Hi, thank you once again for another interview. I remember being the break-in interviewer with you and I was a bit nervous, LOL. Now that I’ve gotten a hang of it I want to now know more about you. So to begin, over the last three months what have you been doing lately?
In truth I write and market as much as I can in a day. I typically spent about 3 to 4 hours marketing a day and that includes blogging and then I edit and write. I also have been working behind the scenes with Rebel Ink Press as their Director of Communications and Publicity so I handle a lot of marketing etc for all the writers.
2. Now I understand that you do work with two publishers, Naughty Nights Press and Rebel Ink Press. What kind of work do you handle at NNP and RIP? These are one of the most interesting, upcoming e-publishing companies to date.
I do indeed work with the two only. Both are relatively new and what I love about them both is they are cutting edge – in slightly different ways. NNP is very in your face provocative with kink and gore and Rebel brings you a bit of everything – not just locking themselves into romance but moving into Science Fiction, campy and steam punk. I handle marketing and PR for all the writers at Rebel in an official capacity and I handle some of that with NNP in a non official – most like sharing what I’ve learned because we’re all in this together.
3. To my understanding, you are releasing not just one, but two books on at the end of October. What are the names of them and please elaborate more about those releases?
Red Fire – Surrender is the first in a trilogy about a human cop, Jax Steele, and a Russian vampire, Aleksandr Vasiliev, and how their lives interact not only to solve murder but in the fact that Jax is learning he’s much more important to Aleks’ life than he understands and Jax is learning to submit not only his soul but his body.
Raging Shadows is about two male vampire lovers and one is condemned by the only death that occurs with their kind and must find a human female who will give of her own free will her very life to them. They are also owners of a highly kinky BDSM club and the lifestyle is something our heroine craves
5. Do you have any upcoming projects in the future? And also sometime down the line, have you considered doing a collaboration with another author?
I have about 60 coming up and the rest of the year is going to be busy. With NNP Forced Fantasies will come out in December along with now what I think is a stand alone – Mr. Mistletoe and Forced is a very dark BDSM m/m/m book. With Rebel – I have one or two coming out a month for the next four years.
6. Also to my understanding, you written an article piece for Kink E Magazine. Could you please explain to others what the article was about?
I write about the D/s relationship quite a bit and Mirabelle from KinkE knew that – she asked me to go darker into the side of true Sadism as a Master. That was very eye opening.
7. So what was the toughest project have you ever had to face, but was proud with your kind of work?
PINKED – writing as Dakotah Black – it’s the series I love and its campy and funny and has barely any sex and I’m terrified people will hate it but I love it.
8. The Cassandre Dayne of today vs. the Cassandre Dayne in July. Was there anything that you learned in the past three months that you can share?
Heck yes – learn more every single day about being a better writer and learned a heck of a lot more about the D/s lifestyle as I’ve had many more frank and very open talks with a Master Dom.
9. If there was something trivial that you wanted your fans to know more about you and your profession as a writer, what would it be?
Trivial is that I can’t stop thinking about writing. From sun up to sun down I’m planning and thinking and figuring out what to do best and next and how to organize and… whew… oh and I can’t do any of it without music.
Miss Dayne, I really had a ball and a pleasure to interview you the second time. I hope to interview you again the third time and more. Thanks again, for the opportunity.
Thank you very much – I love working with you and sharing stories on After Dark Online as well! Keep them coming!
RED FIRE – SURRENDER
Jax Steele was a haunted man. A Detective by trade, damning visions of a wretched event had taken not only his soul but also the family he loved dearly. Living a shadowed life, he accepted every wretched case given with a vengeance, determined to right the wrongs of his horrible past. When young men began showing up slaughtered like animals, the nightmares began all over again pulling him into his own private hell. All clues led to an elusive erotic artist of Russian decent who enjoyed the dark arts of BDSM and Jax believed he’d found his killer, yet intense hungers buried deep within were awakened and he wanted nothing more than to become Aleks’ student.
Aleksandr Vasiliev carried dark secrets of his own. A monster to some, the vampire had forsaken his past and the family regime in search of a new life away from murdering humans. Unfortunately his previous subjects turned up gutted and he was the only suspect. As Jax and Aleks forged a bond to try and find the murderer, each suspected something that neither could control. As the power of domination and control swirled around their relationship, Jax was forced to face not only his ugly past but also hungers that burned deep in his soul. Betrayed, Aleks was determined to save Jax, his true mate but powerful vampires from his past threatened not only his lover but the entire human race. In a race against time, few would survive.
Savannah Lily was bored with her everyday life and hungered to spice up her life. Her job as a fashion consultant left her little time for a social life so when her three best friends suggested a game using the Ouija Board and a naughty dare, she initially scoffed until she heard about the prize. She’d dabbled with the occult since her childhood, curious about all things that went bump in the night and Halloween was fast approaching. Hungry for one man who filled her every night with sinful visions, winning the prize just might help her achieve her ultimate fantasy, immortality.
Constantine Avion was considered by many to be a warlock specializing in the extreme torture of men and women. Some said he held the key of life and death in his hands and he was rumored to have a male lover. Feared by everyone that knew him, his secret club catered to the darker side of sex infused with magic. Entrance by invitation only, few were selected to go behind the hallowed doors.
For some reason Raging Shadows was having a Halloween party open to the public in groups of four or more. The only catch? One member of each party would be required to perform an act of seduction or kink if requested with no questions asked and Constantine determined how the game was played. As the night fast approached, Savannah was determined to entice the man some called a monster. Unfortunately she didn’t understand his level of power and his desperate needs until one night reminded her she was very much alive. Would Savannah decide to succumb to the man of her dreams and give up her soul or was there a darker power working against the tortured lovers?
What do you get when you have eight wickedly delicious Authors, writing about Halloween?
Why you end up with “A WICKED AND WANTON ALL HALLOWS EVE” of course.
A Halloween party turns into a very unusual night; a ghost whose sexual needs prevent her from passing over to the other side; a chance encounter at a mistaken location leads to many desires being fulfilled; and unusual alien and human sexual experience, in the name of research; and so much more in this kinky themed Halloween Anthology.
Open up your mind, free your inhibitions and get ready for A Wicked & Wanton All Hallows Eve!
Eight naughty Halloween-themed erotic short stories to tantalize and tease the senses while giving readers a little taste of the experimental worlds of sensually exciting tricks or treats.
To celebrate the release of A wicked and wanton All hallows eve on October 30th, Naughty Nights Press will be holding a weeklong celebration, commencing Tuesday 25th October through until Monday 31st October.
Now if that wasn’t a great way to celebrate All Hallows Eve, Naughty Nights Press is also participating in a 100 blog hop. With each blog involved happy to do giveaways. but more information will be relayed about that closer to the time, when we have a list of everyone involved.

Hey what's up people?
It's time for the Six Sentence Sunday.
This Sunday I'm coming up with something random; off the top of my head, because I wanted to test myself and see what more I can do.
This snippet WASN'T based from any story that I've written in the past
So here we go and... enjoy!
-Ray Sostre, AfterDark Online
Contessa's fantasy was overtaking her reality. She couldn't help but rethink her dream about being inside Spencer's apartment. She imagined being in the shower waiting for him to join her. The mixture of steam, warm water, and lust led to something that was meant to be. She fantasized about the way he held her; his wet calloused hands feeling through her soft skin as his arms encircled her, before kneeling down and kissing between her cleavage and tummy.
Then suddenly a female's voice called for her, "Contessa... Contessa?"
She immediately snapped out of her fantasy and opened her eyes, realizing that she was in her office, with one hand holdng on to her rabbit vibrator under the desk and the other barely raising up her skirt. Her body was leaned against her office chair and her glasses were on desk next her laptop. So much for preventing an awkward moment. Her personal assistant walked in on her and now she couldn't decide whether she should keep the vibrator going or turn it off in front of her assistant? Dammit, I should have locked the door and told her to hold my calls for a while. I wondered if she knocked first?

Hey people, Hiaydoin’? I felt this review could not be ignored because this author has really intrigued me with her style of romance and comedy put together. Ms. Kellie Kamryn is a breakthrough author in my book and today she will get a review done by me.
The book had me ever since I read the first dialogue when Missy, the lead character of the story, was having phone sex with a long time person of interest named Sam. The story was very well explained and comical all the way through, while keeping the style of romance between Missy and Sam. I couldn’t stop laughing at the events that unfolded at her birthday party, and I was dying to know on what note will her story end. To put it short, I loved it!
Missy never expected her family to show up on her birthday; she was not in a celebrating mood. If her family wasn’t going to ruin her day, then the little monkey will. How did the little monkey get in the story? Well, the little monkey is a capuchin that belonged to her brother and what good way to help disrupt her birthday, well the little monkey of course.
Her upcoming releases are due out through other publishing companies, like Secret Cravings and Romance Devine, but in the meantime, “Monkeys, Sex, and Other Birthday Surprises” can be purchased through Secret Cravings Publishing, and I recommend you get it. Great job Kellie, I look forward reading more of your works.

Working on an anthology of hotel stories called:
Service With A Smile
Here is my latest Six Sentence Snippet.
SCENE: To put it very plain and simple. Show me any woman that likes a man who wears cheap cologne, and I will show you some ocean-front property in my home state of Nevada. Get what I'm saying?
Shawna, John's supervisor, decided to hang out with him because she has a crush on him but John doesn't know it yet. They shared laughter and jokes together, when the two smelled a ranked fragrance from a well-known guest named Robbie. Robbie is a good guy, but a very naive twenty-one year old. He is celebrating his twenty-first birthday at a nightclub and he anticpated the moment of getting laid because of his fragrance. Instead of investing for a real cologne, he went over to the pharmacy and bought himself a cheap spray bottle of cologne called "Axe"
Read the Six Piece below for the dialogue. (This is a Rough Draft. Be Advised)
"John, you know I enjoy talking to you. Especially on nights when my son's spending time with his father," as she placed her hand on his shoulder, giving him a sensuous smile.
John returned a smile at her, but they were interrupted by Robbie who was leaning over the front desk with a shit-eating grin on his face.
"Hey guys. What are you doing?"
"We were --" she immediately got a whiff of Robbie's cheap cologne and her nose quickly turned away from the over-musky odor. "Oh god! Robbie, what the hell are you wearing?"
"It's the Axe body-spray. You like it?" he smiled with enthusiasm.
"Yuck! I think you emptied the entire bottle on yourself," as she covered her nose with a distatesful expression.
"Damn Rob, why are you putting that on for?" John asked, shooing away the odor. "Do you actually think you'll get laid by wearing that shit?"
Robbie didn't care for the comments being made by them. He grew defensive, replying "Oh you guys don't know a real cologne. I already got a compliment from Khandi earlier, betting that chicks will be all over me tonight."
The two bursted out laughing, this time making Robbie feel very uncomfortatble. The two knew exactly what Khandi meant. Khandi was kind of person who was willing to drop her drawers for anybody; man or woman, but even she wouldn't stoop so low for someone that stunk or wore cheap cologne. It was too bad that Robbie wasn't able to get the picture.
John responded with laughter, "Let me break it to you this way, Khandi was being sarcastic. With that toilet water you're wearing, you'll be lucky if ladies shit on you tonight."
