JS: I am actually currently reading, Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward.
NG: Oh, la la! I love the BDB series and that book! Let's talk about your writing, what genre(s) do you write and why?
JS: I write paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, BDSM, and GBLT erotic romance.
NG: What draws you to erotic romantic novels?
JS: When I first started reading it certainly wasn’t erotic romance. It was mainstream romance, and the more I read, the more I thought that the story would be so much better if the author was descriptive when the two main characters are finally intimate. Once I had that thought planted in my mind I started picking up erotic romances. I have been hooked ever since.
NG: Are there any particular authors you enjoy reading or that have influenced your writing?
JS: I know I have said this in other interviews, but I stand by my statement that at first, Christine Feehan drew me into the whole paranormal romance aspect. After that, I delved into Jaid Black, Lora Leigh, and J.R. Ward. Of course I have branched out and found numerous other talented authors that write incredible stories, but those three are the ones that really started me in on reading and writing.
NG: Describe your writing process...are you a careful plotter or laid back pantster?
JS: I don’t plot. I almost wish I did, though. I get an idea in my mind and go from there. As I’m writing, the story unfolds in front of me and I just let it happen. Sometimes it isn’t how I think it should go and so I’ll tweak it a bit, but overall, I just sit in front of my computer and let the story lead the way.
NG: Has your writing process changed since your first book was published?
JS: Oh yes. Well, I didn’t know what I was doing when I wrote my first book. After reading it once it came out in paperback I couldn’t stop thinking how much I have changed in my writing patterns, for the better. I personally think I have been able to look at the whole picture and focus on the details that really connect the whole story. It wasn’t like that at first, but I just kept practicing. Not to say I have mastered writing in the least. I have so much to learn still.
NG: What are you working on for the rest of the year?
JS: Well, I am about ¾ of the way done with the second Blood Breed book. I have wanted to finish that book because I have had emails from readers asking when it will come out. I am kind of stuck on it, though. I don’t know exactly how I want it to end, and so to my disappointment it has just kind of been on the backburner.
I am also working on books 2 and three in my Wickedly Taboo Series which will feature a young woman and her two step-brothers, and a young woman who is determined to seduce her best friend’s father.
I also am working on the fifth book in the Luecross Series, which I m about half way finished. I have a ton of other ideas in the works, but they are all in different stages of completion.
NG: You are a busy lady! Let's talk about your latest BDSM release The Diary of Anna’s Submission. What's this erotic tale all about?
JS: This story is about a young woman who has desired the wicked and taboo. She doesn’t feel like she belongs, but when she takes a trip to a secluded cabin, she realizes she isn’t alone. This is Anna’s story about her submission, and whether or not she will embrace it or run away from the very thing that will change her life.
NG: What inspired you to pen this sexy tale?
JS: I was reading a lot of abduction and BDSM tales and something inside of me just clicked and I told myself I had to write a story like this. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and the next day I started writing it.
Originally this story was going to have the main character, Anna, abducted and forced into doing things she wasn’t comfortable with at first. This changed after I started writing the story because I didn’t know if that would change the whole composition of the story. In the end I was very happy with how the story played out.
NG: Which movie stars would you choose, if you could, to accurately portray your main characters?
JS: I imagine Anna being played by Amanda Syfried
Felix would best be portrayed by Gerard Butler
NG: Ooo, I love it! If you had to add a song/soundtrack to your manuscript what would it be?
JS: I would have to say the song would be from Incubus from the soundtrack Make Yourself. The song would be “The Warmth.”
NG: Were there any creative challenges faced and conquered before you wrote, 'The End'?
JS: Not so much when I wrote the ending, but more so in the beginning. I faced the challenge of whether or not I should add abduction and forced seduction, but in the end the story grew a life of its own and I just typed out what it said.
NG: I love it when that happens! Give me three reasons readers will love Jenika Snow.
1.) They will be sure to need a fan to cool off with.
2.) They can expect something different and tantalizing
3.) They don’t have to look far to get a variety of reading material, because Jenika Snow writes under many genres.
NG: What's the one thing readers can always count on when picking up one of your books?
JS: I hope shock and surprise. I aim to throw in a bit of the unusual to challenge readers. Don’t know if I succeed or not, but that is always my goal.
NG: Thank you so much for stopping by today, Jenika! I wish you much success with this release!
Blurb: Anna has dark and taboo desires that leave her feeling ashamed and unnatural. All she can think about is how it would feel to let a man possess her in the most primal of ways.

When she is propositioned by Felix, a Dominant at the local BDSM club, Anna has to make the choice to either accept what Felix has to offer, or leave behind an experience that will forever change her life.
Deciding to let Master Felix train her in the art of being a true submissive, Anna takes a journey that will bare her soul, and leave her body deliciously sore.
Caution! Super Sexy Excerpt Below:
“Come on, Anna.” He took my hand and we went into the bedroom. The door was open and the light from the candles on the dresser illuminated, and also cast shadows, throughout the room. He was behind me, his chest pressed against my back.
“Close your eyes.” His words were soft against my ear and sent tingles of apprehension and excitement through me.
Although I hesitated, I did as he asked. Anticipation coursed through me with such force my knees felt weak. My skin pebbled when his fingers ran down my arms. When he pulled away, I involuntarily shivered and kept my eyes closed. When I felt the butter soft silk cover my eyes a wave of panic took hold of me.
That was all he said, but it was all I needed to hear. As if his voice was a talisman, my body slowly calmed and I became like Jell-O under his fingers. It was his voice, so soft and soothing, yet deep and commanding. I couldn’t help but listen and obey him.
Once the blindfold was secured across my eyes, I felt him take my hand and lead me a few steps. My heart beat in my throat, my skin felt moist with perspiration, and I knew it had nothing to do with fear and everything to do with my readiness to experience what Felix had in store. I stood absolutely still when I felt him start to remove my clothing, one article at a time until I was nude.
His fingers were nimble across my flesh, heating me slowly with mastery and expertise. He lifted my arms, and I heard a rustling before something tight and unyielding snapped around my wrists. I tugged when I realized he had secured them above me and started to pant. Never had I been or felt so vulnerable.
“I’m going to open your senses up, Anna. For far too long you have stayed hidden within your perfect, comfortable little life, wanting to be woke from the mundane dream you have lived.” His voice became more distant, as if he was moving across the room. I heard the jangle of metal on metal and my throat became dry.
“I am going to give you an experience you have never imagined. Tonight you will learn what it means to truly submit to me, Anna.”
Oh God. His words tantalized me, but I feared what he had in store for me. Would he be gentle? Would he take into consideration that I had never done this, never even had sex before? He had been considerate and gentle with me at every opportunity, but I could hear the shift in his voice, a subtle yet distinctive note that made me realize I was in the presence of a very dominating man, one who didn’t show mercy.
The images of him whipping that woman at the club—her ass red and welted, the sounds of her pleads and moans filled my mind and caused me to shake. I wrapped my hands around my binding, a rough texture that scrapped against my palm.
“I will also teach you the importance of obedience since you have displayed continuously that you are unaware of the concept.”
He was moving closer to me, I could tell by the way his voice came nearer, stroking over me like invisible hands and setting my blood on fire. I knew he was right behind me, yet he didn’t touch me. The feeling of his body heat spearing through me was like walking into a fire, hot and burning me alive.
“Do you understand what I am saying, Anna? Do you understand that tonight will be about experiencing pleasure and pain?” I nodded because I couldn’t find my voice. My throat felt closed and my mouth dry.
The feel of leather cracking across my thighs and ass had me gasping in response. I strained against my binds.
“I asked you a question. You will answer me or I will continue to punish you the entire night.” He ran his palm over the area he had just spanked and I winced in pain. I could feel my blood rush to it and my skin tingled. The longer he rubbed his hand over the spot, the more it started to burn with pleasure.
“Now answer me,” he whispered close to my ear. I cleared my throat to do what he asked.
“I understand, Felix.”
“Good.” He purred behind me and pressed himself closer to my back. I felt the stiff outline of his cock nestle between my ass cheeks. I wanted so desperately to press myself against him, to feel that hard, thick length rub along the most sensitive part of me, but I refrained, not wanting to disobey him further.
Nothing was said for several moments and I didn’t dare speak and ask him what was going on. As if he had been waiting for something, maybe a shift of my body or an increase in my breathing, his open palm landed on my ass cheek with such force I swung forward on my restraints.
Tightening my hold on the rope, I felt the fibers dig into my skin which caused a burn to travel throughout my whole body. His hand landed on the center of my back and applied pressure so that I was forced to lean forward. The strain of holding myself in such an awkward position started to cause an indescribable pain to settle in my arms, but I bit my inner lip and kept quiet.
