Giveaway ends at midnight on Tues, Oct 8. I talked with Cari Silverwood and this is what she had to say:

Where do you get your inspiration for your characters and stories?

I don’t have a thing with using real people for my characters and I certainly don’t use celebrities for the most part. I think Sam Elliot was used for one of my Doms and that’s about it. My people paint themselves in as I journey further into the story. So I imagine they are assembling themselves from all my subconscious memories of people. I see what is happening in the story and I have them react as seems correct for them. In a way, they write themselves.
On rare occasions, such as Klaus in Take Me, Break Me, I have used some part of real people as a basis for their appearance or whatever.
The stories themselves come from everywhere. Suggestions from others. News events. Movies. Authors I admire. Everyday events. A book that’s about to be written is like a cauldron bubbling over with a stew of a thousand, million ingredients. To do the writing all you have to do is knit a story from what’s in boiling that cauldron. Yes, it’s hot, messy, and painful at times, but so worth it.

What’s your favorite genre to read?

Fantasy. Possibly urban fantasy at the moment. And because I write so much erotic BDSM I find young adult novels are easier for me to get into. But Game of Thrones is up there too.

What’s your writing routine? Do you have a certain place/time/ritual when you do your best work?

I write in an isolated room. I’ve tried doing it with a laptop with the TV on so I can join my husband, but the noise scrambles my brain. As for time, I need at least a two hour chunk to do a good job. It takes me a while to settle into the mindset of penning a story.

Do you have a favorite character from your books? One you enjoyed writing the most or felt the most like you?

I often prefer my latest character. Although Malachi was amazing fun, I think Klaus from my Pierced hearts series is definitely my favorite bad boy at the moment.

Have you always felt like you were a writer before you even published your first book?

I’ve always wanted to write but for a long time thought it wasn’t possible. I’ve been a crazy mad reader most of my life though. Even at high school I would pedal to the library and then ride home with about six books most weeks.

What’s your favorite part about being an author?

Making the story come alive and seeing something that I’ve created from scratch become a WHOLE book. It’s freaky amazing. Also reading reviews and getting feedback from fans is something I feel can top most other experiences. It’s the ultimate validation knowing your story has played some sort of symphony in someone else’s mind – even when it seems different to what you intended. The way stories grow into something you never intended them to be is also incredibly fulfilling. People find stuff that I didn’t know was there…

What’s your least favorite part?

Not being able to figure out the perfect easy way to reach my market audience. I know there are many more people who would enjoy my books. If there was just a big hook that I could use to grab readers – ecstasy. Someone out there must have one of those?

Tell us a bit about your plans for future books.

Possibly the sequel to Rough Surrender. Or the first full-novel, Cataclysm Blues book. Or the third book in my Pierced Hearts series, “Make Me Yours, Forevermore”. I know what I’m supposed to do. But I have to choose what seems to work for me, business-wise, and soul-wise. I will write what calls to me.

Reece and Scarlet have everything a loving couple could want, except a hot kinky sex life. Malachi, an experienced Dom, steps in to help them sort that out. But not only is he a terrible memory from Reece’s past, he’s a smartass and damaged goods, too.
As they all learn to trust each other, Malachi becomes more than just their kink coach. It’s a full-on brat smackdown, and no heart gets out unscathed.
Warning: this book contains unrepentant brats, surprise orgasms, a Domme with training wheels, and a Dom whose tongue is registered as a weapon of mass seduction.

Early afternoon on a Sunday, the tattoo shop was closed, as expected, but a figure moved behind the slightly tinted glass. When she went up close and peered inside, she recognized Malachi behind the counter. She knocked on the window.

A moment later, he opened the door and welcomed her inside with a smile. “Can’t say I thought you were the type for a tattoo, princess, but I’d love to give you one.”

She was too in awe with the shop to answer him. Red walls with beautiful framed art hung in a line across one side. Black-and-white tile floors gave it a funky appeal. The large fish tank lining the other wall made it feel a little zen.

Pointing toward it, she asked, “Is this to keep people relaxed during the pain?”

“No. I just like fish.”

She gazed at the colorful tropical fish. “Pretty.”

“Thanks.” He grinned. “You’re not so bad yourself.”

“I was talking about the fish!”

They both chuckled then stood awkwardly for a moment. “So what kind of tattoo are you looking for?” he finally asked.

“What? No.” She took a few steps back. “No tattoos for me.”

“No? You’d look sexy with one.”

“No. I don’t do...pain very well.”

His brows shot up like he didn’t believe her. “Really?”

Gathering her courage, she straightened her shoulders and said, “I’m here to talk about Scarlet.”

Curiosity showed on his face. “Okay. Have a seat.” He walked toward one of the tattoo stations and gestured to a big leather chair – a cross between a dentist seat and a lounge chair.

She stared at it a moment before hopping on. Being this close to needles and tattoo guns and...other stuff was a little unsettling. She shuddered. “If you start polishing your gun or whatever, I’m outta here.”

He laughed then sat down in a rolling seat a few feet away. “It’s not a gun. We don’t shoot people. It’s called a tattoo machine. And I never tattoo on the first date.” He winked.

“This isn’t a date,” she snapped then shifted on the chair and leaned back. Except the back disappeared, the front popped up, and the whole chair tipped backward. She yelped as she tried to fight gravity and stay upright in the middle. With her legs thrown out to the side, straddling the seat, she finally got herself under control. The chair had reclined itself entirely and morphed into a table.

She looked at Malachi, who seemed to be biting back a smile. His gaze dipped down and he smirked. “Nice underwear.”

With a gasp, she stretched her skirt between her legs. Jerk! He probably pressed some remote control and made the whole thing happen. What underwear had she put on that morning? She squeezed her eyes shut and thought back. Purple lace. She sighed a breath of relief. Last thing she needed was Malachi Johansson seeing the granny panties she wore on period days or when she felt fat.
