Behind the scenes of Desires by Holly J. Gill & Nikki Blaise


Thank you ladies at Lagniappe for having me.


Desires_Holly J Gill and Nikki Blaise


Desires is an erotica/ romantic book about an exclusive sex club, a place where fantasies are made flesh and dreams become real. From BDSM to being treated like a dog, Desires can provide it whatever your kink.

I came up with the idea about writing about Desires over 7 years ago imagining an establishment where you could visit to have your sexual desires and so therefore, I decided to write about one. Only in the club there would be rules not to be broken. My main concern was not making the book repetitive, and with it being a sex club, guests would visit for only one reason, sex. Whether it’s a couple wanting a romantic weekend away, a break from the family or hectic lifestyles, or with no strings attached fun.

Next stage characters, this one I struggled with, thinking about who and what they would be like. Writing from the worker at Desires, wasn’t working. So then I came up with the idea of someone visiting the club and that was when my imagination sprang into action and I came up with Stacie Clifford, but she had to have different reasons to be visiting and wanting to spend so much cash and time there. After a violent recent marriage and lacking greatly in self-confidence and wishing to go back courting, fed-up with what her life had become, workaholic, neglecting herself and alone. After finding an old porn magazine her not ex-husband, she discovered a sex club called Desires. Indecisive she decides to contact the club and discover whether they can help her or not, she had to try something. The heroine was then gathered. Then I needed to add the romance and her main reason for going back to the club for more.

The hero, he came naturally Dan McVeigh, who works at Desires, but only at weekends due to his job commitments. He would be her tutor, a young, handsome, and a very charming man, would walk into Stacie’s life, on first sighting he was lost for words. Dan starts her lessons at the beginning, allowing her to get to know her own body and gradually building up to full blown sex. Only emotions flying high, needing to be reminded of the club contract!

Of course, writing a book is never that easy and there had to be some form of conflicts, it was here while writing Desires, I arrived to chapter 6 and came up with the idea of writing about the club manager Angel. I then started writing her own individual story, but running the book parallel with Desires. And here was where the conflicts and ideas came that you would not suspect in Desires.

From there Desires and Touching Angels Desires wrote itself and I just followed them, and this was a start of a series.

I enjoyed writing Desires, for many reasons; if you enjoy sex than explore it, enjoy who you are no matter your sexuality. Desires also helped me to get my first published works and helped me learn much throughout the astonishing journey, but gave me the opportunity to meet some wonderful people.

May I also take this opportunity to tell you there are more books of the Desires series to come. Thank you for your time and thank you ladies for having me.

  1. Thanks so much for hanging out with us today!

  2. Holly, that has to be one of the best interviews and explanation I have ever read on how one came about writing and creating their story. I love reading and reviewing books and I will admit these books sound like something I definitely would enjoy reading. I also feel that it will have a realistic feel to them as one is reading them. Congratulations on your books and thank you for sharing with us!

  3. Hi! I really love the idea of exploring sexuality and going on the journey with the characters. Can’t wait to read more. Thank you!

  4. You asked how I get MY creativity flowing? Well, I could be flippant and say that it’s the many cups of coffee I drink a day… but quite honestly? If there is something I need to work out in my head, anything from the logistics of getting 3 kids to 3 different places all at the same time to wanting to create a scrapbook page, there is NOTHING that does it for me more than sitting down with a pad of paper. Hello, my name is Snarky Mom and I am a paper whore. While some women may consider a new hand lotion to be a “comfort purchase”, I’m often found in the stationary row buying note cards or wirebound journals. (I have the prettiest grocery lists EVER!) So for me, creativity starts with the scent of a freshly sharpened wood pencil and the scratching of the lead across a heavy piece of paper…

  5. I love the idea of your storyline. It sounds like a great read. Chocolate and coffee gets my creative juices going.
