Hi folks! Well I know it's been a while since I've posted, but I'm glad to be back with an author interview with N J Cole!
I've known N J Cole for a few years now, and after writing fan fiction she's now making her foray into the world of publishing. Her first offering, Midnight Caller, is a BDSM and supernatural themed story about a woman who finds herself being watched through her window at night by a mysterious midnight caller.
Here's the blurb to whet your appetite:
Rebecca Summers enjoys pleasing herself with the curtains open. When a mysterious stranger calls to tell her that he is watching, fantasy becomes reality as she begins to perform for him. Following his instructions over the phone while he watches from afar, she finds herself craving more.
Oliver Durant has always been drawn to humans to exert the dominance and control his kind needs to feel alive. While secretly observing her and calling nightly, he can’t seem to get enough of Rebecca, whom he refers to as butterfly. His urges with her are stronger than the need to dominate, as he is driven to possess her in every way.
Both of their worlds are turned upside down when they finally meet and she agrees to enter into a Dominant/submissive relationship with her Midnight Caller.
I'm very excited about this story being released and decided to ask N J a few questions so we could get to know her a little more.
Were you an avid reader as a child?
I spent more time with books when I was in middle school than with kids. I read every night from when I got home from school until I fell asleep. It was all I wanted to do. Once high school hit the teachers began assigning books and they were books I really didn’t want to read. I don’t remember the last book I read, but sometime during my junior year I stopped reading for pleasure. I didn’t read another book of my choosing for over ten years. I’d graduated from college and had been teaching for about 5 years when I started reading Harry Potter to my class. I got sucked in that I had to buy the next book, and the next. And I’ve been reading ever since.
What was your favorite book growing up?
Well, I just told you about how Harry Potter got me back into reading when I was older. When I was a teen I read the Sweet Valley High books and I loved them.
Do you have a favorite genre, and if so, what is it?
I love romance and mysteries. If you can wrap a romance with a mystery I’m hooked! I’ve recently discovered erotica, and of course that has me hooked as well. I love it when characters are in love and are able to express it with each other.
When was it that you were first inspired to write, and do you remember what was it you wrote about?
The first thing I wrote was Involuntary Rapture. I wrote it because I’d read so many great fan fictions, but I wanted a deeper darker story to be out there. I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could write the story that was growing in my head.
What inspired you to write Midnight Caller?
My husband inspired me in the way that he is my Sir. I wrote Midnight Caller as a one shot for a contest. I was surprised when it won public vote. I had so many requests to continue the story that I decided to write it as a drabble. It was a huge success with over 2 million reads on The Writers Coffee Shop, so I thought that I’d have enough support to make it into a full length novel.
Can you tell me a bit about what you have planned next?
I’m considering writing a sequel to Midnight Caller. I also have a project in the works with Bec Rose, Sally Goodwin and Jordan Silver. I’m very excited about both things. If I’m super ambitious, I might even write a novella this summer.
It all sounds very exciting! Thank you N J Cole for stopping by. I highly recommend you pick yourself up a copy of Midnight Caller. Here are the links:
