We have a brand, new author visiting today! Alyssa Hart! Enjoy the interview.
KATHERINE DEANE: What made you decide to write a book?
ALLYSA HART: I have always dreamt of writing a book. I used to write stories in elementary school and take them to the younger classrooms to read. In Junior High and High School, English was always my favorite subject. I actually got accused of plagiarising a story in High School because it was “too good.” That teacher, to this day, has made one of the biggest impacts on my writing.
KATHERINE DEANE: Why erotic romance?
ALLYSA HART: Hmm, that’s a good one, and honestly I have no clue. I have always loved to read romance and once I discovered the kinkier stuff I actually started to like the erotic parts too. (I skip the sex scenes in mainstream romance, they do nothing for me) Once I discovered spanking books it was all over. I started writing little short stories just for myself because I was too scared to share that side of me with anyone. The first piece I wrote publically was for PK Corey’s Fantasy Friday. She loved it, and so did her followers, and that was super encouraging. After that, I started a story with a friend that never went anywhere. I tried to continue that story on my own, but it didn’t feel like me. Then came Katie. She is my heart and soul. It started as a short story for an anthology, but my publisher sent it back and said she would rather see the story expanded because of the emotional depth.
KATHERINE DEANE: What are your favorite genres to read?
ALLYSA HART: Anything with a spanking, please. Mostly I like contemporary and westerns. Every once and awhile I enjoy a good sci-fi from some of my fave authors.
KATHERINE DEANE: Do you do any of the stuff you write about? 😉
ALLYSA HART: Yes…. That’s all I can give right now. lol
KATHERINE DEANE: How long did this first project take from start to finish? Was it about how long you expected?
ALLYSA HART: The anthology was proposed to me back in April or May. I finished the short story relatively quickly, but the rest took quite a bit longer. I never thought this story would get written, so I didn’t really consider a timeline. I am most surprised with how long editing takes.
KATHERINE DEANE: What was your favorite thing about writing your first book?
ALLYSA HART: My favorite part has been watching the story transform from an idea in my head to words on a page. And I have been mentored by some of my favorite authors. The whole thing is like a dream. Creating my own cover was pretty freakin awesome too.
KATHERINE DEANE: What’s next?
ALLYSA HART: I have a couple of projects going. One is super secret ;-). I am doing a sequel to Katie, and I am writing a DD story that I started on my blog over three years ago.
By Allysa Hart
“If you ever put yourself in danger like that again, I will take you over my knee and spank your little bottom until I am convinced you have learned your lesson… How does that promise make you feel? Because make no mistake about it, Baby, it is definitely a promise.”
A successful CEO by day, Katelyn looks forward to the minute she crosses the threshold to shed all of her adulthood stress and worries and become a carefree, mischievous little mess maker. Her husband and Daddy, Mark, is one of the most beautiful people, inside and out, that she has ever met. His dominance turns all of her switches, but she learns quickly that he means what he says and testing Daddy is not in her backside’s best interest.
Mark is not alone in his endeavor to create a safe and loving environment for Katie. His best friends, Keith and Rose, round out their little family. Being intimately familiar with alternative lifestyles, the couple love and spoil Katie in abundance, but never think twice about turning her bottom red if she steps out of line.
Surrounded by her loving Daddy and adoring Auntie and Uncle, Katie learns that the love, safety, and guidance of this family are what help to make her feel complete. Exploring the little girl who lives inside, the one that she has hidden for far too long, she spends her time building elaborate Lego structures and playing in her special tree house that Mark built by hand.
When tragedy strikes, Katie’s idyllic life is shattered and it takes all of the love, support, and discipline of her family to pick up the pieces and put them back together. However, will love and spankings be enough? Katie is not convinced. She doesn’t believe anything will ever be okay again.
“If I don’t want to be little, are you going to force me to be?”
“No, but we would like for you to allow us to nurture that side of you.” Rose’s tone was hopeful. “I need that side of you as much as you do.”
Katelyn considered her words and then addressed Keith. “Just to clarify—if you’re not going to run my life, does that mean no more spankings?”
He chuckled. “In your dreams, sweetheart. Little or not, if you act up and break my rules, you will definitely get your butt smacked.”
Katie crossed her arms. “That’s not fair. You can’t have it both ways.”
“Rose isn’t a little and still gets her bottom warmed. We both also know that you wouldn’t want it any other way, so knock off the drama,” he said with a laugh, tapping her lovingly on the nose. “I do not hear any protesting. Does that mean you’re in agreement?”
Katie rolled her eyes and then stuck her tongue out at him. “I plead the fifth.”
“What? Why?” Katie’s stunned expression expressed her confusion.
“We’ve already had this conversation. Five minutes in the corner. Now go.”
With a very unladylike noise, Katie stomped to the corner where she crossed her arms and seethed with anger. Engulfed in total immersion of the dynamic allowed her vulnerability to surface, and gave Rose the chance to prove that Mark’s death had not changed who Katie was or the commitment she and Keith offered her.
Approaching the fuming little corner dweller, Rose gently uncrossed Katie’s arms and guided them to their proper place behind her back. “This is how we stand in the corner. Next time I have to remind you, you will also stand with your naughty bare bottom on display.”
Katie wisely stayed silent.
“How does my promise make you feel? Make no mistake about it, baby—it is a promise, and I am a man of my word.”
She shivered and felt her nipples pucker behind her bra as her body flushed with the heat of embarrassment and excitement. Her words were enunciated as she slowly answered him. “I don’t know. I mean, for real? It seems a little crazy, doesn’t it? Are you suggesting that you would spank me the way a Daddy spanks his little girl?”
His face softened at her last question, “Exactly like that. To a Daddy, the most precious thing in his life is his baby girl, and when she is naughty or does something dangerous, he will do what’s needed to teach her how to behave correctly.”
His explanation shocked her, and she fell silent once again.
“Tell me how that makes you feel, Katie.”
“It’s been a long time since this naughty bottom has been over my knee. I think it forgot what happens when it ends up here.”
“No! It’s not a naughty bottom. See how white it is? It’s a good bottom!”
Rose shook her head, “Oh baby, you just issued a challenge that no Dom would ever ignore.”
“No! It’s not a challenge! It’s not. Lemme go!” Her feet scissored helplessly in the air before they were trapped under Keith’s strong leg. There was no pleasure or ‘adult’ stimulation when Keith spanked Katie. Their relationship was purely familial, so when she was sent over her uncle’s knee, she was a little girl to him and nothing more.
“Hmm, I wonder how long it would take to turn your bottom to the same color as these pants. What do you think, Rose?”
“Her pajamas are pink and I thought you hated the color pink. Can’t you do better than that?” She coaxed.
Katie could tell that they were teasing, but she also knew that once in this position, there was no escape without a hot bottom. Keith’s hand had the ability to set a fire hot enough to cause a naughty little girl to fall asleep on her belly.
“Let’s see how many licks it takes to get to the center of a naughty girl’s attitude.” “No! I’m not a tootsie pop!”
“One.” The sound of the smack reverberated through the room.
“Ow! I’ll go to bed!”
About Allysa Hart
I am a full-time mom to a sassy, strong-willed, loveable little girl. Okay, so she is all me. I am on the wrong side of 30, and I have been married to my best friend for over eight years. Like most couples, we have our ups and downs, but I could not imagine doing life with anyone else by my side. We are Southern California transplants, currently residing in a very rural part of the east coast. I have two crazy dogs that I adore, even though they drive me out of my ever-loving mind, most days.
I have recently rediscovered my love of words and decided to become a writer. My first story is my heart and soul, and it reaches into the depths of all that is me. I also create covers, promos, and logos for authors. I have met some amazing friends on this journey that I now happily call family. Without my family members, whether biological or chosen, I would not be half the person I am today. Their constant love and support keep me afloat.
