WYLABWYW: Author Bio

K.L. SILVER writes romantic erotica novels and XXX novellas. She adds a psychological edge which keeps YOU, the reader, on the edge of your seat. Or, such is the plan.
If that fails, there's a backup plan:  A LOT of hot S-E-X!
Now, where were we? Oh yes...
K.L. grew up, and still lives on the frozen prairies of central Canada. She lives alone, because she can. Her children have grown up to become strong, independent, and most exciting of all—gainfully employed adults.
K.L.'s crazy enough to believe yoga and instant coffee keep her sane. Her primary goal is to write a great story. Her second, of course, is world peace.

WYLABWYW: Tell us a little bit about yourself. Something we won’t find in you author bio on your website (do you work, hobbies, what do you like to do when not writing/working, etc.).

I play with words and numbers in my head.  Constantly.  Often, when I'm sleeping! 
I'm a lightweight when it comes to alcohol.  My kids laugh at me because of it.
I keep trying,

WYLABWYW:  Are you self-published, with an agency, or a combination of the two?

Self-pub'd.  So, hurry up with the questions.  The day pass has expired.  The nice men in the white van will be here soon to pick me up!

WYLABWYW: What inspired you to become a writer?

I think I was born with the desire to write.  Silly things like life and paying the bills got in the way.
Now that I'm an author, it's a LOT harder than it looked from a

WYLABWYW: Do you have a mentor or mentors?

I did have a mentor when I began to write novels.  I learned so much from him, I could never express my gratitude.  It was a long-distance mentor-ship.  He lives (lived) in Chicago, and I in Canada.
I believe he's in prison now.  That doesn't mean he wasn't hugely instrumental.  He was.

WYLABWYW:  What do you do to prepare for a story?

Not sleep?  Stories, um, CUM to me in the night.  For instance, while I was writing Mastered, I was pretty sure the characters would NOT have names.  One night—BOTH names came to me in the black of night.
And, so, James Colton and Missy Weaver were born.

WYLABWYW: What do you find to be your biggest obstacle in the writing process?

Discipline.  I need discipline. (lol)

WYLABWYW:  Where do you write?

In the dungeon in my head.  But, also on a computer. I'm adaptable like that.

WYLABWYW: Do you listen to music when you write? If so, what do you typically listen to?

Silence. Absolute. Even a fan in the next room puts me off.  Hey, I'm easily distracted, what can I tell you!

WYLABWYW: How much of your book(s), if any, is taken from real life events?

Considering the genre I write, I'll take the 5th on that question, thanks. 
Standard answer?  Google is my friend.  Lol

WYLABWYW:   Who is/was your biggest support for your writing career?

Friends.  My kids aren't thrilled about the genre their mama chose.  Imagine that.
I also have an amazing Street Team.

WYLABWYW:  What lead to write your chosen genre?

They say you should write what you know?
Google edicated me good! lol

WYLABWYW:  Tell us about your book(s).

The MASTERED Saga (2 novels) is first and foremost a love story.  It is told from two POV's:  That of the submissive protagonist, Missy Weaver, and the Dominant antagonist, James Colton.
It is real.  Gritty.  True to life.  And, unique in its genre.
It refuses to stop at 50 shades.  Instead, it offers a full spectrum—from the physical and emotional to the psychological motivations behind a Dom/sub relationship.
The reader comes away not only panting for more (hopefully), but with actual insight into a quote, unquote - 'forbidden' lifestyle. (BDSM)
The way I see it, insight is the key to replacing fear with understanding.  As, it is with all things.
Oh, did I mention?  There's also a TON of hot, deviant S-E-X! Lol
To top it off, there's a chilling undercurrent of danger and suspense woven throughout.  The plight that Missy finds herself in will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Literally.
The surprise ending will have you reaching for the tissues.

A TRILOGY OF XXX BED-TIME STORIES GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU 'UP'! They can be purchased as a box set or individually.

WYLABWYW: Time to give your support a shout out! Tell us about your crew (cover designer, photographer, editor, videographer, proofreader, swag designer, etc.)

I am SOOO lucky to have an amazing support crew.
Between my web designer, Ell, and my PA, Nancy – there's not much I need worry about other than writing.
Silver's Ballsy Belles – the most amazing Street Team in town, could teach actual pimps a thing or three.  Every day, I am amazed at their selflessness.
I also have an incredible cover designer that puts up with my OCD and my anal-ity!  SPANK you HARD, Richard.

WYLABWYW: What are you working on now, and when can we expect your next release?

I've just released Trussed.  I'm not one of those prolific authors who can pump out three or four books a year.  I need a recovery period.  A re-juicing period.
I'll release another Angel Knott Trilogy come fall. (The Naughty Adventures of Angel Knott:

WYLABWYW: Can you share an excerpt from a work in progress?

Sure!  Excerpt from TRUSSED (Book 2: The MASTERED Saga):

“He was less than three feet away from Missy’s naked and writhing body.  She couldn’t catch a cold and him not see it coming.  She was most fetching bound to his bed, he noted.  The binds were symbolic, and he intended to make his point crystal clear.  The last time they'd spent the night together, he'd woken to find her AWOL, the collar he'd bestowed upon her unlocked and abandoned.
She had much to atone for and much to learn.  Judging from her swamp of a pussy, she was going to enjoy the arduous process as much as he was. 
Quite frankly, he could sit here and look at her until the end of time.  Missy was to his heart what oxygen was to his lungs.  After losing his wife to a freak asthma attack three years ago, he'd fully expected to spend the rest of his life alone, mired in guilt and remorse. 
To his Dominant way of thinking, he'd failed Angeline when she needed him most.  He'd been more than her husband, he'd been her Master.  She should have been safest in his arms. 
Instead, she'd died in them.
Yet, three years later when he laid eyes on Missy, it was as though life were just beginning.  The level on which they connected was unprecedented for both of them.  Words were unnecessary.  Hearts communed and souls entwined.  He was born to Master her as she was born to submit to him.  Each was born to love and cherish the other.  It was just that simple.
Feeling the luckiest of men, James drank in the delectable sight before him.  Missy was exactly where she belonged:  in his bed, well and properly trussed.
He meant to keep her as such...

Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us all.
