Welcome! We're glad you stopped in to meet this week's BDSM/erotica author, Patricia Logan. We're thrilled she's here but we do have to warn you that the virtual location isn't for the faint of heart! She's invited all of us to meet her here in an alley behind a row of jewelry stores in the diamond district of downtown Los Angeles.
A grizzly headless corpse has just been discovered, posed with a giant black rubber dildo jammed into his anus. His genitals have also been removed from the scene. This is the opening scene from "Silver Ties" my latest BDSM story. Detective Cassidy Ryan has just lost his breakfast against a graffiti covered old brick wall.
Naughty Reader’s: Wow! What a gruesome scene, Patricia! Now that's an attention grabber! Umm..while we wait around to see what happens, tell us a bit about yourself.
Patricia will giveaway an eBook copy of Silver Ties to one lucky commenter! Let Patricia know you've stopped by today and Friday, and a winner will be drawn from the comments.
Please include your email address so we can easily contact the winner.
Patricia: Well, I’m a busy mom to four and grandmother to one and I have to squeeze out time for my passion, writing. Being an author is my fourth career, behind mortgage broker, AIDS hospice nurse and Jeweler and I’m happier than ever, doing what I love.
Naughty Reader’s: What made you want to become a writer?
Patricia: It was a bit of an accident really. When my mortgage career tanked in 2007, I had nothing to do but read so after about 75 books, I said “I can write one of these!” So I did.
Naughty Reader’s: Well congratulations on that decision because your fans love you! Please share a bit about your new release 'Silver Ties' without giving away any spoilers.
Patricia: The latest is book three in my “Silvers” series… sexy books where I pair 40+ aged guys with sexy younger men. It’s called “Silver Ties” and is a BDSM about a former navy SEAL and the website owner of DOMZ.com, a famous BDSM website.
Naughty Reader’s: (readers shuffle closer to hear more from Patricia) I think they're curious to hear about this series! Do you write under a pen name?
Patricia: Yes I do. When I started writing, most books were still found in book stores, so I went to the romance shelf and saw that the books were arranged alphabetically from top left to bottom right. L was at eye level so I became Patricia Logan.
Naughty Reader’s: Now that's a clever way to consider a pen name! Can't say we've heard that one before! What types of hero or heroine do you like best?
Patricia: Strong yet vulnerable men. Most of my guys are former military in one form or another. I also do a lot of cowboys. Who doesn’t love gay cowboys? (swoon)
Naughty Reader’s: Tell us about a typical day in your life as a writer.
Patricia: I have my unproductive days like anyone else but the great days let me put 7K down on the page. I get up, get my kiddle off to school and drink my coffee as I peruse social media to see what’s up. Then, do a bunch of promo and by nine or ten, I start writing. I generally write all day and if the muse is really on fire, I can go longer.
Naughty Reader’s: That does help our production! (all eyes watch now as the coroner covers the body before it's carried away) Mmm....that's just sad! Patricia, do your books have a common theme or are they all different?
Patricia: The common theme would be that they are all love stories. I believe in true love and have the dream that one day, marriage between gay men will be legal everywhere. I’ve created a small town named Westburg, outside of Austin, Texas and a lot of my stories start or end there. I live in Los Angeles, so that’s another easy setting for me. Like I say, I love men in uniform, so a cop here or there, or a soldier with PTSD appears a lot. My characters also walk through each other’s books.
Naughty Reader’s: We think that's another trait that readers enjoy with some authors because it allows them a small glimpse of what the other characters are up to that they've already read about. How long does it take you to write and then edit a story?
Patricia: A 50K+ novel can take me 3-6 weeks. It depends on how productive I’m being. That said, I’ve written 144K one that took me three months and a 90K one that took me 26 days. The anthology shorts that I write for IRM (It’s Raining Men FB group) take me a few days but they’re only 10-15K words.
Naughty Reader’s: Do you have to be alone to write?
Patricia: Not as long as those in the room are silent. I can’t write with noise.
Naughty Reader’s: How do you go about naming characters?
Patricia: I picture them in my mind and they tell me their names. I know, that sounds stupid, but it’s true. I’ve also used last names of friends and family in every book.
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?
Patricia: Either or both. Sometimes I find a picture and say, “Wow! This is my drag queen, Ricky!” Sometimes I write the story and then hunt for my model.
Naughty Reader’s: How do you pick locations for your stories?
Patricia: I pick locations well known to me or as in the case of Westburg, my fictional Texas town, I know Austin very well, so it was easy.
Naughty Reader’s: What are you working on now and what should readers be looking forward to from you in the future?
Patricia: Two things. I am writing the biography of my good friend Chris Montez. Chris was a rocker in the 60’s and very famous. It will be my first and last non-fic. That’s not my thing at all but he is a close friend. I’m also starting a new series of three about young gay prostitutes, called the “Rent Boys” series.
Naughty Reader’s: (Brenda scribbles notes on her pad) Patricia, thank you so much for being with us this week. Where can readers find out more about you and your books?
Patricia: Thank you for having me. Readers can leave a comment or question so we can chat. Here they are but definitely not safe for work. 18+ only please:

Blurb for 'Silver Ties'....
A serial killer is preying upon gay men in Los Angeles. Detective Cassidy Ryan of the LAPD is out to stop the monster before more mutilated corpses turn up. The victims have one thing in common and it leads back to an infamous online club called DOMZ.com. The website owner, Zachary Teak, is stunningly gorgeous and infuriatingly uncooperative. Having spent years in vice, investigating crimes fueled by pornography, Cassidy hates the Dom on sight.
Zack Teak is a wealthy man and a popular Dom with a long waiting list of subs who beg to lick his boots. The moment he meets the detective, a former Navy SEAL, he is determined to help the handsome, blond hunk explore his own submissive nature but Cassidy is having none of it.
As Cassidy closes in on the killer, he succumbs to Teak’s charms, finding that it’s okay to give up control and let Zack take charge. Join the men as they flush out a killer while trying not to become victims themselves.
At the top of the screen, there was the wording “live feed” and what Cassidy saw, made him stop and stare. On the screen was a room with a naked man, tied to a large cross. He was cuffed at the wrists and at the ankles and stood straight, leaning back against the cross. His neck was circled with a thick bicycle type chain which had a large padlock on it, hanging between his pecs. The man was not particularly old or good looking but judging by his erection, he was extremely turned on by being bound to the large leather contraption.
A tall man dressed in assless leather chaps and a leather thong, covering an impressive bulge, circled him. The man was masked and wore thigh high black boots. He repeatedly slapped a cat-o-nine-tails against the right boot, as he circled. From his build and the impressive body, Cass was certain that he had to be Zack Teak. He’d watched his lips enough to be able to identify them by now. Fascinated, he watched as Zack leaned in close and spoke into the sub’s ear. The sub nodded and the Dom stepped back, raising his arm and letting the cat fall on the man’s stomach. The sub immediately began to whimper and beg but the Dom was relentless, lifting the cat and hitting him over and over, all over the front of his thighs and his stomach and chest. Soon the man’s skin began to turn pink and Cassidy could see that he had tears running down his face, though he never lost his erection.
Cassidy was shocked when the Dom stopped what he was doing and leaned close to the man, touching the side of his cheek with his palm and caressing the sub, seeming to sooth him. To Cassidy, it looked almost gentle, so different than the way the Dom had treated him only moments before. The sub seemed to calm at the Dom’s touch, and he offered the larger man a smile as he canted his head and closed his eyes, leaning into the caress. Zack didn’t let the touch go on for very long though. He dropped his hand and stepped back, but not before leaning in and speaking again into the man’s ear. The man smiled and nodded eagerly. Cassidy was stunned when Zack raised the cat-o-nine-tails and let the first blow fall over the man’s cock. The man cried out in obvious pain and Cassidy winced, for the first time, feeling his own hard cock, bob within the tight confines of his suit pants. It was the most frightening and exciting thing that Cassidy had ever seen. Cassidy reached down and fingered his large erection, repositioning it so that he was more comfortable. The urge to stroke himself off, was strong.
Zack raised the cat and dropped it again and again, landing each blow on the man’s front, sometimes on his stomach and chest, sometimes on his thighs and often on his cock, until the sub’s skin blushed red from his neck to his shins. Cassidy stared with rapt attention, watching the way Zack moved from one side to the other, never letting the blows fall too hard or too fast, seeming to gauge just what the sub needed from him, as he had told Cassidy. The whole time, his body was naked except for the few clothes he wore, his high tight ass, a beautiful sight to see as he paraded in front of the camera. Cassidy watched as he stopped landing the blows and leaned forward, pinching first one and then the other nipple as the sub cried out. The sub finally began begging for something, but Cassidy couldn’t tell what it was that he needed because Zack had the sound lowered on the computer.
Zack stood in front of the sub and reached out, taking the man’s cock in hand. After only a few pumps of his hand, the man came, shooting long streamers onto the floor as he cried out. Zack worked his cock until the man was drained and oddly, Cassidy realized that Zack did nothing to bring himself off, not even touch the bulging pouch of his thong. Zack offered the man his come covered hand and the sub happily licked his own spunk from it until it was clean. Zack leaned in and caressed the man’s cheek again, leaning forward to kiss him softly and the look of satisfaction and happiness on the sub’s face was stunning. As the screen faded to black, Cassidy realized that he was as hard as a rock, standing in front of Zack’s monitor and holding a cold latte that he hadn’t even touched during the scene he’d just watched.
