Author Cara Bristol - Erotica & Erotic Romance

Erotic Stories to light your fire....

Tonya and Brenda join Cara at the Rod and Cane Society mansion - location for her first book in the Rod and Cane Society series. Spanking erotic stories is Cara's specialty and right up our alley. *wink*

So if you need a little disciplining this week, you're in the right place. And are you on the naughty list? Misbehave just to get spanked? Comment and let us know.
Naughty Reader’s: Tell us a bit about yourself  that our readers might not know.

Cara: I enjoy reality TV shows. I watch TV solely to unwind. I’m a long-time Survivor fan, and I enjoy Amazing Race and the Real Housewives. However, the ones I don’t watch are the Bachelor shows!

Naughty Reader’s: What made you want to become a writer?

Cara: I’ve always been drawn to it and have been good at writing. It came fairly easy to me. So I majored in journalism and worked as a newspaper reporter for several years, then went into public relations. But I didn’t like having to write what other people wanted me to write. I’m a lifelong reader, romance reader. I enjoy sitting at the computer and making stuff up.

Naughty Reader’s: Please share a bit about "Unexpected Consequences" without giving away any spoilers.

Cara: Unexpected Consequences is the first book in the Rod and Cane Society domestic discipline erotic romance series about the men and women who belong to secret spanking organization. Here’s the blurb: Jared belongs to the Rod and Cane Society, a secret organization of men who spank their wives to maintain domestic discipline. When Melania ignores a “request” from her husband and attempts to hide her disobedience, Jared spanks her.

While Jared believes the unpleasantness has been settled, for Melania it only has begun. Although she consented to the spanking, her fairytale notion of marriage has been shattered and she makes plans to leave Jared as soon as her parents return from vacation.

While she waits, Melania begins to see more positive aspects of domestic discipline. But just as she decides her love for Jared is paramount and she might be able to accept a domestic discipline marriage, Jared discovers she’d planned to leave him and once again her marriage is in jeopardy.

Naughty Reader’s: Do you write under a pen name?

Cara: Yes, Cara Bristol is my pen name.
Naughty Reader’s: What types of hero or heroine do you like best?

Cara: I like macho, dominant heroes who have a trace of vulnerability.
Naughty Reader’s: Tell us about a typical day in your life as a writer.

Cara: I love what I do. The worst day writing is better than the best day in my previous corporate jobs, but that said, my writing life would probably seems boring to most people. I get up between 5 and 6 a.m. and work for a few hours. I write 1 – 2 K per day every day. I take a break in the middle of the day, then in the afternoon I’m back at work. About half my time is spent on promo, the other half on writing/editing. I work six hours a day, seven days week.
Naughty Reader’s: Do your books have a common theme or are they all different?

Cara: Spanking is my specialty! Four of my six books include spanking. Unexpected Consequences, False Pretenses and Body Politics are part of the Rod and Cane Society domestic discipline series, about a secret organization of men who spank and the women who love them. Body Politics is my seventh book, and the third in the series.
Naughty Reader’s: How long does it take you to write and then edit a story?

Cara: It varies by length, but in general, about two months. One month for the first draft, then another month to revise, edit and proofread. The revision through proofreading stage takes as long as the first draft stage.
Naughty Reader’s: Do you have to be alone to write?

Cara: Absolutely.
Naughty Reader’s: How do you go about naming characters?

Cara: A variety of ways. Often names just come to me out of the ether. But sometimes I think of names that have special significance. For instance, in Unexpected Consequences, a domestic discipline story, the hero’s surname is Traynor, a version of Trainer, i.e. Train Her. For the heroes, I always pick names that sound masculine to me, and I want them to be short so they’re easier to shout in the throes of passion!
Naughty Reader’s: Is it easier to write about the characters if you find pictures of them before you write or do you write then find character pictures?

Cara: I write, then find characters’ pictures. My characters are figments of my imagination.
Naughty Reader’s: How do you pick locations for your stories?

Cara: I generally use fictitious places that are composites of places I’ve lived. In my mind, the Rod and Cane series is set in California, but the locale is mix of Southern and Northern California.

Naughty Reader’s: What are you working on now and what should readers be looking forward to from you in the future?

Cara: First up, Body Politics the third Rod and Cane Society story will be released by Loose Id on January 8, 2013. It was so much fun to write. I call it my feminist v. dom story. I also have a paranormal erotic spanking novel that is under contract. It’s called Destiny’s Chance. Expect to see that one this year. And I hope/plan to write two more Rod and Cane novels.

Naughty Reader’s: Is there anything else you’d like readers to know?

Cara: Yes! If readers are interested in discussing spanking fiction, they should check out the Spanking Fiction group on Facebook. It’s a group for people to discuss spanking and spanking fiction. You’ll find out about new releases, but you won’t be bombarded by promo. The link is listed below.

EXCERPT: Unexpected Consequences

Melania retrieved her shoes and collapsed onto the vanity bench. Her heart was thumping, and her stomach was upset. She and Jared had just gone head-to-head in the first fight of their new marriage. Unfortunately it wasn’t over. She shouldn’t have sneaked behind his back, but he shouldn’t have refused her. He acted like he had been testing her.
He hadn’t shouted, but he was angry. Perversely, his self-control seemed more ominous than if he had ranted and raved. She felt as if she’d entered the eye of a hurricane. Things appeared calm, but the air crackled with a dangerous energy. She did not want to meet Jared in his office, but she didn’t dare disobey. You could push a man only so far.
Melania wedged her feet into her shoes and gasped when she took a step. The shoes seared her feet like sandpaper rubbing a raw wound. She removed the shoes. Carrying them, she hurried to meet Jared.
His study door was closed. She knocked twice quietly, hoping he wouldn’t hear and she could tiptoe away while still fulfilling the letter of Jared’s law. She’d reported as ordered. It wasn’t her fault if he didn’t hear.
“Come.” His voice, though muffled, was too audible to ignore.
Damn. Melania took a deep breath, turned the handle, and pushed open the heavy paneled door to find her husband bent over his leather-and-wood valet thingy. They had received the unusual stand as a wedding gift from the Rod and Cane Society, but she didn’t know what the piece was. She assumed it was a guy thing. A man toy. The valet’s wide, padded leather seat rested atop four mahogany legs, reminding her of a gymnastics pommel horse. Its height could be adjusted by removing wooden pegs in the legs, as Jared was doing now.
He glanced over his shoulder. “Put your shoes on, please.”
It was on the tip of her tongue to ask why, but she figured her question would annoy him further, so she eased her feet into the shoes.
Jared lowered the leather seat of the valet, then flipped a release, allowing a squared metal ring to pop out of a hidden panel at the base of each leg. She’d never noticed that before.
Melania’s breath caught in her throat as Jared strode from the horse to his large desk, unlocked a drawer, and removed a paddle and four fleece-padded leather bands with buckles. Her heart fluttered as if a hummingbird were caught in her chest cavity. Surely he wasn’t going to—
Her memory flashed to her childhood when she had been particularly naughty and her mother had told her to wait in her room for her father, the one who meted out discipline. She’d hidden under the bed. Her father had found her and administered extra swats to her behind for attempting to avoid punishment. The anxiety that skittered through her now was similar to that time. Jared couldn’t seriously be intending to spank her! Sure, they had discussed his right to correct her behavior through corporal discipline—but only if needed and as a last resort. All she’d done was buy a pair of shoes. Surely that didn’t warrant a spanking!
She swallowed hard and wet her lips. Steeling her courage, she asked, “What are you doing?”
His eyes met her gaze. “I’m preparing to spank you.”
