KJ: Hi honey, great to be here today.
NG: I'm glad to have you! Let's jump right in! What genre(s) do you write and why?
KJ: I write erotica in pretty much any form; straight, gay, lesbian or bi.
As to why I write it- that really is the million dollar question. It is, without doubt, a compulsion- an addiction if you like. Every time I write something that gets taken up by a publisher, I get a massive high and I want to write more. Every time I get a rejection, I have a desperate need to write better, and am spurred on to write yet again- usually faster.
I guess writing is my drug of choice.
Why it's erotica I choose to write is an even harder question. I started to write it purely by accident, after a random idea scribbled across a serviette in a Scottish cafe one day nearly six years ago. I found I could simply write smut- I haven't dared analyze why- I don't really want to know!
NG: LOL! Well, writing smut is surely the drug of choice...the ultimate natural high! Describe your writing process...careful plotter, laid back pantster or combination of both?
KJ: I'm definitely not a careful plotter, in fact having to plan out my stories in advance so that I can put forward a proposal to a publisher is by and far the most difficult part of the writing process for me.
My smutty tales tend to take me along with them for the ride. I'd like to say I have some sort of control over my characters, but I'm afraid I'm firmly within their power.
For example, I'm currently working on a new novel for Xcite. The proposal states I have 20 chapters to write- I'm already on Chapter 6- and yet I'm only on Chapter 4 according to my chapter plan... whoops
NG: *g* Gotta love those wayward characters! What do you 'see' more clearly the setting or characters in your stories?
KJ: The setting, without question. Location is everything for me. If I can't clearly visualise the setting, then my story simply doesn't work.
I enjoy taking places I know well, such as simple store rooms, café's, hotels or restaurants; removing all the people, and then working out how to get my own characters in situ. Only then will I decide what they are going to get up to once they are there!
NG: What do you enjoy the most about being a writer?
KJ: This is a hard one- it certainly isn't the long hours, the periods of time I spend staring at a blank notebook, trying hard to get the story in my head to come out in a discernible order!
I think that it must be the freedom of it that I love the most. The fact that, in the few short hours I have to write each day, I have the luxury of letting my imagination do just exactly what it likes.
NG: What are you reading right now?
KJ: I read a vast range and styles of books. At the moment I'm reading the new Katie Fforde book, Summer of Love. I hardly ever read romance, but I do love her easy style. Katie Fforde produces books that are the equivalent of hot chocolate. Something about them just makes you feel better.
NG: What are you working on for the 2011?
KJ: 2011 is shaping up to be a fantastic year!
I am currently madly promoting my new e-novel The Perfect Submissive, and my new e-anthology, Yes Ma’am. I will be reading from both of these books at the Sh! Women’s Store in Hoxton, London on 6th May- which I’m very much looking forward to.'
On the writing front, I am deep into my next novel, Fantasy 13, which will be published by Xcite (no release date as yet). This new novel centres around a threesome with a difference- and a list of thirteen erotic tasks which need to be performed…
NG: You're one busy lady! Let's talk about your latest scorching release, The Perfect Submissive. In five sentences or less, share what this erotic story is about?
KJ: Hidden behind the Fables Hotels respectable facade, five specially adapted rooms wait; ready to cater for the kinky requirements of its guests.
When Mrs Peters, the mistress of the hotels exclusive entertainment facility, meets the new booking clerk, Jess Sanders, she instantly recognizes the young woman's potential as a deliciously meek addition to her specialist staff. All it will take is a little education.
Under the tutelage of the dominatrix, Miss Sarah, Jess learns to cope with her unexpected training schedule, the increasingly erotic chill she experiences each time she survives a new level of correction, and a truly sexy exercise routine.
Temporarily distracted from her intimidating rule over Fable’s top floor by an enigmatic artist, Mrs Peters begins to plan how she can secure his obedient assistance, in grooming Jess into the perfect submissive...
NG: Oh, wow...sounds hot! What inspired you to pen this sexy tale?
KJ: The initial premise for The Perfect Submissive came to life when I wrote a short story for Black Lace, called Seducing Laura. Due to Black Lace’s untimely demise the story never made it to publication, and ended up in a pile of tales that ‘might come in useful one day.’ It was only when I rediscovered the piece during a random flick through of old material that I saw it’s potential to be developed into a novel.
The first chapter of The Perfect Submissive is based almost entirely on this original story, and concerns the first kinky encounter between the dominatrix, Laura Peters, and handsome artist Samuel Weaver, on the top floor of the Fables Hotel in which she worked.
By adding in the character of the hotel’s latest recruit, Miss Jess Sanders, I created someone that Mrs Peter’s would enjoy training. A creature destined to become the perfect submissive.
NG: How long did it take you to finish this book?
KJ: I have two part time jobs, so writing has to be squeezed in between the challenges of real life. Therefore it takes me rather longer to write a novel than I’d like. The Perfect Submissive took me approximately 18 months from start to finish- although I guess it would have been a bit quicker if I hadn’t stopped to pen the odd short story along the way!
NG: Were there any creative challenges faced and conquered before you wrote, 'The End'?
KJ: The hardest challenge for me was maintaining the momentum once I’d passed the 4500 word mark. Most of the material I produce is for the short story market, as consequence I am not well practiced at producing anything longer. The push from 5000-8000 words was a hard slog; but once I’d passed that psychological barrier I was fine. (I hope!)
NG: The Perfect Submissive has BDSM elements. What would you say to the curious reader uncertain about exploring this genre?
KJ: BDSM in literature is massive fun. You can experience all the tension, sexual anxiety, and discomfort of the characters without any of the associated pain or angst! It is by far the safest way to experience the naughtiest, kinkiest, and most fascinatingly visual of sexual practices!
If you are new to BDSM, you can use erotica of this ilk to educate you- become the ultimate voyeur! x
NG: Describe the heroine in three words.
KJ: The heroine of The Perfect Submissive is Miss Jess Sanders – in three words I’m sum her up as – Deliciously Quick Learner
NG: Give me three reasons readers will love The Perfect Submissive.
KJ: The action begins on the very first page, and doesn’t stop until the very last paragraph. The journey that Jess Sanders goes on to reach her destiny is complex and, hopefully, fascinating. It is total escapism.
NG: Yowza! I'm hooked! Anything else you'd like to share?
KJ: Thanks ever so much for letting me visit you here today.
NG: It was a pleasure Kay! I wish you the best of luck with this new release and all your future endeavors!
KJ: If you like the sound of The Perfect Submissive, you might also like my latest short story collection, Yes Ma’am- which features six Fem Dom stories. Give it a try- it may well hit the spot…
NG: There you have it ladies and gents! Kay Jaybee, thank you so much for stopping by Simply Sexy Stories!

Caution! Sizzling Excerpt Below:
If he hadn’t had his neck bent, his face to the floor with respect for Miss Sarah, who greeted him with a sharp ‘Good Morning’, Jess judged he would have been quite tall. And he was young; not the sweaty, aged bank manager Jess had conjured up in her head, but a man in his late 20s or early 30s, with a shaven face, short spiked ginger hair, and well built limbs. He was dressed as a servant, perhaps a stable hand. Jess was automatically reminded of Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Gulping against her dehydrated throat, unwilling to see the sex that she was sure was about to follow, the clerk dropped her eyes, only to have her chin roughly jerked upwards by Mrs Peters,
‘No, child. You will observe. You will learn.’
A patina of panic gripped Jess. Every hair on the back of her neck stood to attention. Until that moment it had been unreal. She hadn’t let go of the hope that at any minute someone was going to turn around and say, ‘OK, Jess, it’s just a joke. We play it on all the new girls. Let’s
grab a coffee.’
No one did though. No one was saying anything. The suffocating quiet of the room was broken by the newcomer, who apparently totally oblivious to his audience, was pressed to his knees by Miss Sarah. His head lowered, he was left were he was as the lady sat in the wing-backed chair, her back straight, her chin tilted, her clear eyes filled with disdain as she studied her supplicant.
Jess tried to turn her head away for a second time, but again, had it sharply wrenched back to the scene unfolding before her. She felt incredibly hot despite the general chill of the room, and wished she could take off the thick jumper that was so essential in her cold little bookings office.
Miss Sarah stood again, her abrupt movement making Jess jump and Mrs Peters smile with sardonic approval.
‘You know why I have called you here, Master Paul.’
‘Yes, my lady.’ The words were spoken with humility, but Jess heard every word. It was like being in a theatre watching someone dictating well rehearsed lines.
‘I believe I’ve had to speak to you before about your time keeping. Twice before in fact.’
The man’s eyes remained dipped, ‘Yes, my lady.’
‘I’m afraid that, as this is not the first time there has been cause to reprimand you, the punishment will be more severe this time.’ Miss Sarah didn’t sound afraid at all. Her cut-glass voice sounded triumphant as she towered over the man, who seemed to be getting smaller, as if he was shrinking against her tone.
With a rustle of the petticoats hidden beneath her bust hugging dress, Miss Sarah turned from her client and began to search through the desk drawer. Jess held her breath; positive she knew what Miss Sarah was searching for. It has to be a wooden ruler. Jess had read enough erotica to know how these scenarios went. It was almost text book. She wondered if she should have been disappointed, but the hardening of her nipples told her otherwise, as did the tell-tale twitch beneath her skirt.
Determined to keep her unbidden arousal secret, Jess privately admonished herself for being so susceptible. She averted her eyes from the woman at the desk, but Jess couldn’t bring herself to turn them from the manservant. He captivated her. So strong, so masculine.
What makes him want to come here and be controlled like this? Why does he pay to be humiliated?
‘It’s fascinating, isn’t it?’ Mrs Peters seemed to be reading her mind.
Jess felt goose pimples sprinkle her flesh as her employer continued to speak in whispers, her warm breath tickling Jess’s ear, ‘He’s a strong young man. He is good looking. He could dominate any girl he chose, and yet here he is, getting his rocks off by crouching in obedience before a powerful woman.’
