Meet the always sexy Paige Matthews, Erotic Romance



 Paige Matthews
Erotic Romance

     Welcome to another hot interview and author giveaway. We're glad you could stop by to learn about Paige and what she writes. Please help me welcome her and show her some love by visiting her sites!

Tonya:  Readers love to know more about their authors. Tell us a bit about yourself.

Paige:  Well, I am a wife and mother of two young children that keep me on my toes. I enjoy spending time with them and watching sports when I am not working, writing or at school.

Tonya:  They grow fast so enjoy every minute! Do you have a day job?

Paige:  Yes. I am an office manager for a small local company in my area. Not glamorous but it helps pay the bills.

Tonya:  Some of us have things we do to get into the writing frame of mind like music, or drinks. Do you have anything special you do to get into the writing mood?

Paige:  I love throwing on Pandora to one of my favorite bands and losing myself basically in the music and the writing. I usually write in the early mornings while everyone is still asleep.

Tonya:  Where do you keep story ideas? Where do they come from?

Paige:  I think most of my ideas come from experiences that I’ve had or people that I know have had, and the others are just what-if? I look to novels as a source of escape from our reality even if it’s for a few pages. I base a lot of my ideas on those experiences that I want to enjoy.

Tonya:  If you’re self-published, can you tell us a bit about that and how it’s going for you?
 
Paige:  I am self-published and I believe it is going as well as it can. I am still new to this world and genre and it is taking a while to build a fan base. However, I am happy with what I have accomplished so far.

Tonya:  Our readers do love their smut, right readers? They also love series so you've got a great start. Keep writing and giving them more of what they want! Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write?

Paige:  I tend to write during the morning, but can write at night after the kids go to bed. I don’t necessarily have to be alone to write, it depends on my mood and what is going on in the house. Most of the time I am on the couch while the kids are playing in the living room.

Tonya:  What advice would you give to new authors?

Paige:  Read and write. It sounds simple but it is the advice that I always give. The more you read, the better writer you will be. But then again, you have to write. If you don’t write, no matter what happens, you are not able to put any product out if you don’t start the process.

Tonya:  Do you write better when you first have an idea of what your characters look like or do you write, then add character looks?

Paige:  I have a basic plot line and idea of what the characters look like before doing the character sketches. I do a character sketch on every major character in a book, really get to know them before I sit down and write. I usually troll around Google images to get an idea of the look I have pictured in my head and then I am usually like “AH HA! That’s the guy or girl”

Tonya:  What attracts you most about men?

Paige:  Wow…I like confident men. Although, the bad boy look with tattoos and piercings attract me as well, as you can tell by my characters.

Tonya:  We’re dying to hear about your latest book. What can you tell us without spoiling the storyline?

Paige:  It’s the second in a series, but follows a different set of main characters. They both are afraid of losing control, yet yearn for it. The story explores their relationship and their insecurities and struggles with their emotions as they admit to themselves what they fear and want. It is a BDSM themed erotica.

Tonya:  Where can our readers find you and your books?

Paige:  You can find me at www.paigematthews.com and pretty much on Facebook and Twitter. I've included my links at the end and look forward to readers stopping by. My books are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords.

Tonya:  Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?

Paige:  Thank you for your interest in me and thank you, Tonya, for having me on the blog. I really appreciate it. I hope your readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Tonya:  I love introducing new authors to my readers who love BDSM stories. Let's do a few fun questions. What is your favorite night time snack?

Paige:  ice cream

Tonya:  Do you like toppings on your ice cream?

Paige:  just sprinkles

Tonya:  What’s your favorite meal - Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc?

Paige:  Thai, Basil Chicken! I've also included an excerpt of the story. Please follow the blog tour!



Blurb:
     Emma O'Connor's interest in bondage and submission has led her to the training program at Devoured. With past sexual experiences less than par, Emma wants nothing more than to submit to a Master. With her need for pleasure and her desire to please, Emma finds herself exploring the desires that have remained subdued; although unsure if she could make a good submissive.
     Marcus, the Dom in charge of the training program at Devoured, is more than interested in the feisty submissive. When Emma walks in for her interview, Marcus knows he's met his match. Consumed by nothing but thoughts of her, Marcus begins to doubt his ability to stay in control and his previous stance on collaring a submissive. Marcus finds himself unsure of his feelings for Emma, and his responsibility to the other trainees.
     When a threat surfaces against Emma and her past comes back to haunt her, Marcus must admit his feelings for her in order to protect her, or risk losing her forever.
     Join Marcus, Emma, and the rest of the Devoured Club Doms and Subs in the second installment of the Devoured Club Series. 

Excerpt:

Marcus placed me in the middle of the king sized bed. He moved back and swept his eyes up and down my body. My skin felt like it was on fire, every nerve ending was alert and ready for his touch.  I watched him as he shut his eyes and try to regain control.
     “Sir?” I asked with anticipation. I was hoping that he would continue. I was as wet as a cat in the rain but happier than one. I wanted him bad. Part of me knew that I shouldn’t let myself get too close – that had ended badly once before – but there was something about him that drew me right into the line of fire.
     “Emma, you don’t know what you do to me.” His voice was rough and his body was stiff. He got off the bed and walked over to the armoire on the other side of the room. When he turned around, I saw that he had a blindfold with him.
     My pussy clenched in excitement. I enjoy being blindfolded, and the idea of my other senses being heightened made my orgasms that much stronger, well, at least the couple of times that I had agreed to it. I watched as Marcus walked back over to the side of the bed.
     “I’m going to blindfold you, okay?”
     “Yes, sir.” I nodded and sat up so that he could easily secure it around my eyes.
     His hands brushed my hair out of my face and tied the material tightly so that it would not fall down. His fingers lightly grazed down the sides of my neck and over my shoulders before caressing the base of my neck and the tops of my breasts. A shiver ran through me under his light and seductive touch. It was enough to tease my skin but not hard enough to fully acknowledge the motion.
     “You are so beautiful.”
