Since it was my first time out, what I tried to do was create a glamorous Harlequin Presents type story, (innocent heroine, exotic location, dominant hero from another culture) and then add the naughtiest spanking scenes I could think of. Reviews were very good though some very nice readers hinted that my spankings could have been a lot naughtier!
Now the next time out, I decided to simply make up a story, totally out the air, without any background from my own past. From carefully studying the sensational authors at Blushing Books, I decided that I wanted a.) a wholesome all-American heroine b.) a tough lawman hero c.) a steaming hot series of spankings that were not just "thrown in" but vital to the story line and the hero and heroine's relationship. The result was a sweet, funny, one of a kind story I call CRYSTAL AND GOLD!
But what I wanted to do next was explore my roots in fantasy and science fiction, and create a lighter story with less spanking and more humor. The result was a bouncy little space opera called LOVE BEYOND TIME!
All things considered, I'd say 2014 was a pretty good year for Carol Storm. Can't wait for what the next year brings!
