Tonya Kinzer getting trashy all week!

Erotic romance author Tonya Kinzer is taking over my blog this week. Vacation for Trashy! ;)

Amelia: Tonya, please tell us a little about yourself.

Tonya:  Thank you so much for having me here this week! First, readers – don’t’ forget to get in on the contests at the bottom!

Let’s see…I’m a woman who enjoys writing that opens new doors of reading entertainment to individuals and partners who read together. I’m a wife, mother, sister, friend….the sweetheart next door! *wink* I’ve been writing for years but only recently decided to self publish. I’m pretty techie and find the formatting and uploading easy once you figure out how each site works because all of them are different. It takes patience and the ability to read directions. I’m self taught in most of what I know how to do and do my own covers, book trailers, promo items and websites.

I do two monthly drawings, one each from my blog followers and from those who subscribe to my newsletter. If the readers want to be included, they can follow my blog and subscribe to my newsletter. The links are on both my blog and my website. I announce the winners in the newsletter.

Amelia:  What would your readers be surprised to know about you?

 

 

Tonya:  Maybe that I’m a workaholic, but so is my husband. I don’t have a lot of free time. If I’m not working at the office, I’m home on my laptop writing, blogging, adding to my websites, marketing, Tweeting, on FaceBook, etc.  Hubby and I do make time for each other so that’s scheduled in there too. I’m also a night owl – that being said, I’m not one who gets up at the crack of dawn to write but I’m usually back at my computer by 8 am or so.

Amelia:  Tell us about your most recent releases.

Tonya:  I write erotic romance with soft bondage in the BDSM lifestyle. For those who have never read this genre, my books don’t go deep into the torture aspects. I write more about the sensual feelings of deprivation like blindfolds taking away the ability to ‘see’ what’s being done to you. This in itself brings out the fact that you MUST trust who is in the scene with you. The lifestyle is not to be taken lightly; you must discuss many things with the partner you choose before accepting to ‘play’. Not all lifestylers do this 24/7; some are in the bedroom only for the excitement of the couple. My website has links for those interested in learning more.

 

     Book four in my series, The Boss’s Pet: Their Submissive Switch, goes deeper into the learning process of the BDSM lifestyle for Sondra and she’s learned enough to turn the tables on one of the Masters, surprising him with what she’s learned. Sondra also gets instructed by her first female Domme and that scene is pretty steamy. Read the EXCERPT HERE – Warning, there is strong sexual content. They enjoy playing in Palm Springs and this story takes them back there.

 

Master’s Email released June 17th and will interest those who like to watch others, targeting the voyeur in all of us…not to mention those who love spanking stories. Colt and Alexis seem to have grabbed the attention of many readers so far and I’m loving all their responses! Thank you if you’re out there! My readers ROCK! Muah! Colt has set up cameras in his home and his submissive loves performing for him. If you’re up to a XXX-rated excerpt, check it out HERE.

Amelia:  What element of story creation is your favorite? (Character? Setting? Plot? Etc.) Why?

Tonya:  I can’t say I have a favorite because I love it all. When the characters start talking to me and changing the plots and scenes, they take off on me and sometimes I can’t keep up! LOL There have been several scenes I’ve written out and a character steps up to tell me what I need to add to make it better! That’s when the writing is easiest. If I get stuck on a scene, I move on and come back to that part later because I know when the characters are ready, they’ll tell me how it should read.

Amelia: What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Tonya:  Write every day and make it a habit. I don’t write every day and that would be my down side. Doing newsletters, interviews, website updates and marketing isn’t writing. If you don’t write and get the stories down, you’ll have nothing to market! New authors need to have a website, blog, FB and Twitter accounts – that is how your readers will find you. Chat with other authors; many are willing to help newbies and guide them along.

Amelia: What can we look forward from you in the future?

Tonya:  I do plan to do a few books outside the series but I think there will always be additional books INSIDE The Boss’s Pet series as well. I have too much with those characters to not write about them anymore. Nick and Sondra have a relationship that keeps them together and they work well at the office, too.

My western series will be up next. A few characters for those books are already tapping their toes to get on the page! I’m not sure when the first book will be released…I’m aiming at January 2013 but we’ll see. The Boss keeps me pretty busy at the office these days.

 

 

Amelia:  Where can we find out more about you?

Tonya:  I am on Facebook and Twitter. I do author interviews on my blog, please stop by! My sites are 18 and over, just as fair warning. Here are a few links and there are more on my websites:

Blog Site:  http://tonyakinzer.blogspot.com

Website:  http://tonyakinzer.webs.com/

Each book has a link to Ch 1 and also an excerpt but they do come with a warning – Explicit sexual content so beware to the average readers.

SmashWords:  http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/tonyakinzer

Amelia: Is there a question you’d like to ask our readers?

Tonya:  Thank you so much for having me here this week! Don’t forget to enter the contests at the bottom. I also pick one monthly winner from my newsletter subscribers – the link to sign up is on my websites. I’d love to ask the readers what they find most important in an author’s newsletter – is it contest links, author interviews, upcoming releases by other authors, etc?

My schedule is listed on my blog’s left sidebar. There’s a contest for this blog stop listed below and don’t forget to also click the link for the Grand Prize drawing to be held Oct 2nd!

About Amelia James

Amelia James started reading steamy romance novels in junior high, but her mom took them away from her, so she started daydreaming instead. After she got married, she wrote some of her naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine. Two of them got published. She kept daydreaming and writing stories until her dirty stories turned into trashy books. She lives in Colorado, but she’ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When she’s not lusting after her next bad boy hero, she looks for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, bloodsucking lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks.

    I have to finish getting caught up on your series. I know I have the first couple of stories, I am not sure about the third so I will have to check before reading the new one (The Boss’s Pet: Their Submissive Switch).

    Hi Tonya and Amelia!
    I can attest to Tonya being a workaholic! We both are and we’re always waiting for the merry-go-round to stop! LOL We met Tonya during an online chat with other authors in 2010. Steve and I are very excited to be meeting Tonya and her Boss in person in October! Not only is Tonya a close friend but she mentored us on writing our second book and continues to do so as a critique partner.
    Readers, the Boss’s Pet Series and Master’s Email are must reads; alone or with a partner!
    Hugs to you both! Brenda & Steve
