Happy Release Day Interview with Angelica Dawson

Hello, Angelica, and a very warm welcome to The Naughty Pages. I’m thrilled to have you here today to discuss your writing.
~So Gentleman is your latest book, and is the third book in the Blue Moon House series. How many books do you have planned for the series?
I hope to have one novella for each vampire, which will make eight volumes in total. Each new book is a prequel to the one before, until I get to the oldest.

~Can you tell us a little bit about Gentleman?
Harrold is the vampire that chooses Julia, the main character in the first Blue Moon House. This is his story. He lives and empty life, with a loveless marriage. Unable to find fulfillment in his home, he turns to whores to debase him. As his requirements of them escalate, one whore refers him to Blue Moon House, where he can find what he seeks, and more than he knew he needed.

~How about a brief history of what has happened in the series so far (without giving too much away of course!)?
Writing a series in reverse is an interesting process. The original Blue Moon House has hints about each vampire’s past that I attempt to pay off in that story, but I also know what is to come and can plant pointers to the future, and books already published. Beginning in the present day, Blue Moon House portrays a coven of vampires that are deeply linked, both by their sexual desires for each other as well as their human prey. Julia has to convince each of them that she is someone they want to include in their family. Kitten tells the story of the next youngest vampire, Jocelyn. She has a lesbian bend, but enjoys men very much, thank you. She has a dark past that she must come to terms with if she is to grow beyond her submission to one vampire and become a mate for all of them. Gentleman is Harry’s story. Prior to that (time-wise) and soon to come, I hope, is Slave. Will is a masochist in each of the prequels, a man who relishes in delivering pain, in pushing his partner to his physical breaking point. His past explains how he met the vampires of Blue Moon House, what he learned from them, and how he became the fearsome man we see in the other books. That leaves four more stories to come. Terrance is of Nordic decent and frequents the same whorehouse as his father, Blue Moon House. When a fire robs the vampires of their home, Terrance takes his inheritance and risks it all to move to America and reap the profits of a growing community. He is also able to give the vampires a new house where they can be more than mere whores. Nicholas is the second oldest vampire, but joins the story after Lynn and Sophia. He is desperate to find a way to live with himself after killing almost everything that has ever meant anything to him. He loses it all one more time only to be saved by his new vampire friends and lovers. Lynn is Sophia’s first vampire offspring. Working in the same whorehouse as Sophia, she comes to know the vampire and her loneliness. Although she tries many times to have a child, Lynn decides to give up that chance to live on in the next generation and instead live forever with her best friend. Sophia is the original vampire and director of Blue Moon House. Her story will cover her escape during the murder of her vampire family, her attempts to hide herself and her nature while running across continental Europe, and her success in both hiding and feeing as a whore in London.

~So tell me, what specifically do you write?
Specifically? That’s very difficult. I write a wide range of fiction. I started two fantasies with erotic tones. Blue Moon House delves a bit into historical. I have a military short as well as a New Adult, Campus Sexploits story. I suppose, I write whatever my characters want me to write.

~What type of writer are you; do you plot it out or, like myself, are you a pantser? Is being a pantser even an option for being a poet?
I’ve never considered myself a poet, but I am absolutely a pantser. I am very character driven, and especially in the Blue Moon House books, exterior characters have wormed their way into my stories and become vital to the telling. I do plot, but in a very general and open sense. I have a starting point, and end point, and one or more aims through the middle. How I get from one to the next and who takes me there, is up for grabs.

~Why did you first take up the pen, so to speak?
When I first read Twilight, I had a very clear image for myself of Alice meeting Japser in the diner. It was so vivid that I was compelled to write it. From there I wrote a plethora of fanfiction, mostly for Twilight and honed my skill. My first original novel was written less than a year after that and I gave up fanfiction three years ago when I decided to focus on my own stories and characters. Blue Moon House was another story that compelled me. The vampires and Julia were so intense, so fascinating, that I couldn’t really do anything else until I got them out of my head. I wrote the first draft, approximately 20 000 words, in one weekend. Then I took a deep breath and sat on it for a few months before editing and later submitting it for publication.

~Did you always know you would write?
No, although I have been writing most of my life. I used to write elaborate and fanciful things in grade school that blew the doors off what my classmates were doing in terms of scope and length. In high school, I wrote my first novella and started my first novel which I finished before convocation from University. However, University was a very bad time for me. It was when I really got hit with homesickness and a loneliness I’d never experienced before. I felt isolated for the first time in my life and it was then that depression sunk in and I had my first anxiety attacks. The middle two years taxed me completely and I went into my final year utterly burnt. I stopped writing then. I gave up any thought of doing a Masters’ thesis, which had been appealing when I started my post-secondary education. Approximately a decade later, the muse returned.
So, no, I didn’t always know, but in hindsight, I probably should have expected it. J

~You write specific genres; do you find them enjoyable to read as well?
As Angelica Dawson, I write specifically erotica. I have another penname for young adult fiction, speculative fiction, and fantasy. In terms of erotic subgenres, I am most fond of BDSM and menage. These two let me explore love and sex between several people, through pain and learn what might be going through the heads of some of the people enjoying the lifestyle. Unfortunately, I am very picky about reading erotica. Most of what I’ve found is too blatant, too graphic, too physical. I want to make my head work. I want to see how the sex affects the personality, the relationship, the world around them. I want the sex to drive the story, not simply be added to make it steamy. The type that turns me off the most are those where the lovers are not being respectful of one another. Aggressive male figures that demand of newly met women something only a partner who actually knows her should be. I look at their actions and think, “what a jerk! She should kick him in the nuts and walk out” but of course, she is completely drunk on his power. *eyes roll* It’s not only men over women. I’ve seen m/m stories that aren’t so different, menage where the third party is held in rather than drawn or enticed. I worry about what people are taking away from these stories.

~As a writer, who is an idol of yours?
Robert Jordan, from my fantasy/scifi side. He has such an elaborate story/world/magic system. I have found that, as a pantser, this is the one thing I cannot do. I can explore a world and try to make it broad and deep, but that takes a lot longer than writing a novella or single novel. I’m still working on one.

~Is it the same person for you as a reader? If not, who is your favourite author to read?
Yes, I do love reading the Wheel Of Time books as well as many other fantasy and speculative fiction authors

~Are the any shoutouts you’d like to make?
Yes. I’m part of three weekly blog groups, Tantalizing Tuesday, Thursday Tastes and Flasher Fiction Friday. My blog is http://angelicadawson.blogspot.com/ The ring leaders for these are Naomi Shaw and Muffy Wilson. The pair of them have been a huge buoy for me. Pablo Michaels is also a key supporter of my writing and I am grateful to him for that. I’d also like to mention Gina Kincade, my publisher. I have nearly given up writing and publishing a dozen times since Blue Moon House was accepted for publication. She has had faith in me when I have none in myself. I would not be releasing Gentleman without her.

Excerpt:
“Harrold, this is Percival Jackson and his wife Priscilla.” He clasped Percival's hand and nodded to the elegant woman next to him. Her gown probably cost twice what Veronica's did, something she was sure to complain about later. Veronica introduced him to two more pairs, all emigrated from England with substantial inherited wealth. She might not meet his expectations sexually, but Veronica was exceptional at getting her foot in the most exclusive doors. It had proved financially beneficial in the past.
After standing by her side through several inane conversations, Harrold's attention began to waver. Gazing over the assembly, he paused to admire several bodices and more than one cinched waist. Having a wife gave him respect and position, but Veronica took no offense at his wandering eye. If anything, she encouraged it, eager for him to find another bed.
The woman who drew his attention most wore a fitted dress with short sleeves, her arms bare down to her fingertips. That was probably why she was surrounded by men, each taking his turn holding her hand and kissing those fingers. She looked his way, and he found himself unable to break the gaze. Minutes later, he glanced her way again and admired her throat as she tipped it back, laughing —no necklace. Obviously she wasn't the wife of any of the guests: they wore gloves and necklaces as well as ornaments in their hair. She was still smiling when she met his eyes again, holding his gaze like it belonged to her. She blinked and turned, speaking to the gentlemen surrounding her before leaving them and striding in his direction.
“Follow,” she said when she came near, walking right past him.
He didn't excuse himself to his wife or her friends. None of them seemed to take any notice. Veronica didn't break in conversation, covering his withdrawal. The bewitching woman looked over her shoulder and seemed unsurprised to see him there. Her eyes drew his attention, glittering shards of topaz or amber. They seemed to glow unnaturally in the lamplight. She led him down a corridor and opened a door next to a pair of chatting women. Both watched them, but neither said a thing.
“You are a difficult man to get a hold of, Harrold. I don't think I like that,” she said as she strode to a trimmed lamp and opened it, casting the room in a gentle glow.
“Pardon, madam, but I'm sure I'd remember if I made your acquaintance.”
Full red lips pulled up on one corner in a smirk. “You had better believe you would.” Her lusty tone told him much. “We haven't met,” she said, circling him. “I'd been informed that you were in need of my services.”
Harrold's brow furrowed. What woman provided a service he needed? What service...?
A light shone behind his eyes just as she said, “Delores was quite insistent. More than is proper. I had to set her down for that.” Lynn, for that must be who this woman was, regarded her painted nails. “She enjoyed that, I think. Would you?” She glanced at Harrold from the corner of those oddly sparkling eyes.
“Would I what?” He was completely flustered. How had a whore gotten into this party?
Her palm slapped across his face. It was a sensation he was familiar with. Many ladies had spurned his advances when he was younger. However, this woman had a stronger arm than any of them. This pain rivaled that of the time his cousin had punched him in the jaw for dandling his lady.
“You will pay heed when I speak. Would you enjoy being reprimanded by me?”
The suggestion alone made him burn. She was the ideal woman, strong, in complete command, not only of him, but every man at the party. Her force of presence bested that of most of the men he had met. He would love to obey her commands, especially if, as he suspected, they were anything like Delores'.
Her arm moved fast, spinning around to come up between his legs. He gasped in surprise and then winced as she squeezed him in her hand. The pain made his eyes water.
“You will not hesitate to answer, either.”
“Y-yes, madam,” he said through clenched teeth.
“Better.” She eased her grip, fondling him, massaging one nut and then the other before running a finger up his length.
“Despite putting me at such inconvenience, I believe Delores is right.” She pulled her hand back with a sigh. “Before we go any further, however, I need you to agree to the following terms.” She pulled up the drawstring at her belt to access her small purse. Unfolding a square of paper, she revealed a simple contract.

The below signed agrees to keep the confidentiality of Blue Moon House and share with no one the activities therein.

Friday Flash Fiction

Jake rested his head on David’s shoulder and heaved a deep sigh. “It’s over.”
He felt David’s face move into a smile against the top of his head. “Yes, it is.”
“Tell me again why we agreed to host the New Year’s party this time?”
“Because you were drunk off your ass and didn’t realise how much work went into organizing a party this big.”
Jake lifted his head and glared at his lover. “You could have stopped me.”
David cupped his cheek and a cheeky twinkle gleamed in his eyes. “I wanted you to learn your lesson. No more parties.”

Jake sighed again. “Agreed. We’re getting too old for this crap.” He placed his head back on David’s shoulder and darkness descended as sleep claimed him.

Ok, it was a little longer than 100 words. Oh well. Hope you enjoyed!

Thursday Taster - Welcoming in the New Year


Courtesy of DeviantArt user Shades of Lethe
“Arabella?” Silas’ voice jolted her back to the present. “You faded out on me for a minute.”
“Sorry, Silas. I was just remembering times in this house. I didn’t realise how much I missed it, but now that I’m back, I couldn’t dream of leaving ever again.” She sat at the table and poured a mug of tea for herself and her dearest friend, grateful when he joined her.
“I wonder how long the rest of the coven will keep celebrating,” he grinned over his mug as he took a sip.
Arabella chuckled, almost choking on her tea. “Unless Harland has anything to say about it, which you know he will, and which you know they’ll probably ignore at first, they could go on for days.” Placing the mug down, she sat back with a satisfied but tired sigh. She looked around the room, eyes coming to rest on the pillows and blanket on the floor. A look back at Silas sent a chill down her spine.
“I’m not like him.”
Keeping her breath in check, she merely dipped her head, acknowledging his statement.
“I won’t seduce my way into your heart and on to the throne. I don’t want the throne, I only want you. But I will not force the matter.”
“Sharing my bed for tonight to rest will not be forcing the matter,” she carefully spoke. “It would be more comfort from a friend, rather than the proposal of a lover.” She stared him down, making it clear that she was fully aware he was not like Baylock, nor would she back down. “I refuse to let you sleep on the floor.”

They continued to stare each other down, but Silas finally looked away with a smirk reminiscent of their teen years. “I see you’re going to be just as firm a Queen as your grandmother.” Staring into her eyes again, he continued boldly. “I look forward to pushing the boundaries with you. Not just as subject and Queen, but as a man might, to establish what type of relationship he is in with the woman he loves.”
Arabella’s heart leapt, but she managed to keep a cool head. “Make no mistake, the boundaries you push as subject will be vastly different to those you push as a man in love. And they will be met with vastly different reactions.” 




As this year draws to a close, and the next rushes to greet us, I decided to share this snippet from The Coven, as it is also about saying goodbye to the past and embracing the future. Please enjoy. And check out this link for other participants for this week.

Tantalising Tuesday - Last for 2014!

Courtesy of Flickr User Ben Gun
Ash gasped as pain radiated through his body, originating from the gaping wound in his gut. He’d been in plenty of battles before but had never felt such pain. When the towering woman knocked his head, he just about passed out. It was the beauty in her otherwise ordinary looks that kept him conscious as she snapped the shaft of the arrow protruding from his body. 

As the rightful heir to his country’s throne, he shouldn’t have even been in this fight. He knew Bronsen, his valet, would not approve, but Ash was not his father, King Leonhart. Ash wanted to fight for his people. The comradery of the soldiers, the feeling of being just another man, was worth any chiding he might receive when he got back to the palace. Defending his people, however, was the main reason he fought. It was worth any risk to his life. And now, by fighting in this war, he’d found his queen, this strong woman trying to save his life.


His hair fell across his eyes, matted with blood, dirt and sweat. Ash’s strong muscles burned and his usually keen eyesight dimmed from pain. He was in trouble.

Lots of changes to come!

So I'm going to apologise right now in case my posts become a little sporadic over the coming months. I have some busy times ahead that involve a book launch, preparing another book for editing and then editing two others on top of writing, studying, blogging and promoting. Let me tell you, it's going to be one crazy 2015! But in all the good ways, of course. And that's just all my online work, let alone my personal life! Yes, this will be very interesting indeed. Time to learn how to juggle? Hehehe... It's going to be a hectic schedule for a while, that's for sure. So I thought while I think of it, and have a moment, I will say something now. Please bare with me, it will all be worth it, I promise! I will try to keep up with Tantalising Tuesday, Thursday Tastes and Flash Fiction Fridays, but there will be some weeks where I miss one, two or all three posts. I will try my best, though, since Blogger does allow me to schedule posts so far in advance.
Right now, I have to hop back to organising this launch, since I'm back to studying tomorrow. But I can't wait to share with you all my progress!
