Young Adult to Erotic? by Laci Paige


By way of a different pen name I’m a young adult author. So what made me veer off in a total different direction from YA? Don’t get me wrong, I love my YA reads and I continue to write them, but a visit to an online book club changed things for me.

Surfing my way around the internet one night I came across a website. There was a book club announcement for my Publisher, Decadent Publishing. I decided to go check it out. The ladies in the chat room were all fired up and ready to give books away! How could I not stay?

I ended up winning a story on bondage. Bondage! Yikes! At least that was my reaction at first. Then I thought, “Why the hell not?” I got it, read it that night, and surprisingly enjoyed it. After reflecting on the story and its sexy content, I had to ask myself, “Is this something I could write?” So for shits and giggles, I gave it a try.

I got what you could call a “good” rejection on my first go at it. They said if I could change X amount of things that they would like me to resubmit it. So I did. I am always up for a challenge. Especially anything that will make me a better writer.

I went through it and had a second set of eyes take a peek, and then resubmitted it. A short time later they offered me a contract for my first erotic novella, Let’s Keep On Truckin’.


So there you have it, you now know how and why I got into writing erotic stories. I have many more in the works. While I continue work on two YA stories, I also have five erotic in the making.

My latest release, The Silken Edge is a story that I’ve had in my head for a long time now. After finally reading Fifty Shades of Grey, I decided it was time to unleash the characters from my brain.

So without further ado, here is the blurb.

The Silken Edge, by Laci Paige
BDSM/May-December/EroticRomance – Heat Level 4

The Silken Edge

After her longtime boyfriend dumps her, Kristy craves a change in her life. Her best friend, Sherry, is into the BDSM scene, and on a whim and a bet, Kristy finds herself in the playroom at an exclusive club. A disguised Dom named Master Jay uses sensation play and a piece of silk to help her discover the world of kink. She finds it enjoyable and addictive, but what she doesn’t know is that Master Jay is really Jake, a much younger man to whom she’s strongly attracted.

For the past couple of years, Jake quietly watched Kristy in his gym. He doesn’t care that she’s older than him; he wants her. When the virgin BDSM sub he’s hired to train ends up being Kristy, Jake almost falls apart. During the scene they play at the club, he fantasizes about getting her into restraints in his own playroom. But Kristy is shocked when she learns that the two men she desires are one and the same. Can Kristy who’s led a vanilla sex life, and Jake, who knows nothing but kink, find a future together?

Author: Lisa Fox

World-renowned neurosurgeon, master chef, secret member of American royalty, seducer of legions of beautiful, outrageously sexy angels and demons and vampires and werewolves and the occasional pirate, Lisa Fox has done it all… in her own mind. In reality, she can generally be found at her desk with a cup of coffee close at hand. Or maybe a martini. It really depends on the day.
