I remember when my first book, Traditional Love, was published (2010). I wasn’t sure how to answer people when they asked what genre my book was. Was it romance? Was it erotica? What was it? Yes, it was both…I guess. But how was I to explain that it had spankings, and focused on a lifestyle known as Domestic Discipline? Did that mean I wrote in the BDSM genre? Obviously, I was confused and in an identity crisis.
Well, a couple of years, and books, later…I have found my genre. There is a spanking genre! There is also a DD romance genre! I have found my home.
Which is why I’m so nervous, now. I decided to go back to a story I had written several years ago but never finished. It’s a story of two women who fall in love. No spankings, and no DD. A completely new genre. Lesbian Romance. I decided to step out of my naughty spanking home, and try something new. Fun, but scary.
So, I created Mila Kerr. I wanted to make sure that it was clear that the two genres were very different. I didn’t want Alta fans to pick up a Mila book and expect some over the knee delights. And I most definitely didn’t want a Mila fan to pick up an Alta book and find a surprising scene with figging! I guess you can see why I decided on the different name. Confusing the two genres, for me, could be dangerous.
BUT, I also don’t want to start over as a first time author. I really, really, really hope that my spanking/DD community supports and embraces my little gal lovin’ adventure. Hint hint. 😉
I love my spanking/DD genre. I plan to continue to rock the genre for many years to come. But I DO love the ladies! And maybe…just maybe…I may combine the two genres like little Miss Anastasia.
Please check out Holding Back by Mila Kerr aka Alta Hensley.
If you had the chance to step back in time, would you?
What if you could live in a community built around the morals of yesterday?
Rylie James isn’t happy in today’s world. She longs for a time when life was simpler. When people could work off their land and be part of a true, small town community. Trying to bring back history, Rylie has spent years building a new society that is a replica of an old 1800’s town.
Before making the big move to the historical utopia of Aspen Meadows, Rylie’s world is turned upside down by the free spirited Luna Forester. Now she questions if she is trying to build happiness, when she may be staring directly into it.
Luna Forester’s entire life is about to change with one single proposition: move to Aspen Meadows and create a new future. Moving to Aspen Meadows is her chance to start over. Start a new life, find happiness…and possibly find love. But can she deal with the stubborn, overbearing, yet completely seductive, Rylie James?
