When is the next Deadly Captive book coming out?
Some may recall that I was hoping to get it out some time this summer, but those plans have changed.
Why, well, because the Deadly Captive books take completely changing my mindset from the way I write my other books. I have to push myself in a whole new direction and basically convince myself that things that are painful and repulsive to some is erotic and fascinating. Why? Because I couldn't write that way convincingly if I didn't believe it. For those that have read Collateral Damage, you know there's a needle play scene. That was particularly difficult to write, and still might not seem pleasurable to some, but to others it has exactly the impact I worked so hard to get across. It is a sensual scene that connects the characters in a way nothing else they'd done together could accomplish.
For the last few books I've written, I've had to pull myself away from that way of thinking to some extent, because while it is okay to spice up sex with a bit of pain, it's generally assumed the the person receiving the pain has given consent. That their limits will be respected.
In the Deadly Captive books, there are no limits. Right and wrong are, for the most part, irrelevant. And this being the last one makes it special. I have a few ideas that makes me cringe even as I consider writing them. One of those ideas is writing part of this book from Cyrus' POV.
