JoeyPinkney.com Exclusive Interview
5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…
Desiree Day, author of I’m In Lust With A Stripper
With her wedding day just three weeks away, Bryce Lucas is getting cold feet.
During her bachelorette party, she becomes mesmerized with the stripper Donté, AKA Sugah Cheeks. After he pulls her on stage and they perform an X-rated act in front of a screaming audience, the deal is sealed and Bryce is hooked.
She can’t get him out of her system; she continues seeing him after she gets married. Months deep into the affair, Bryce’s life takes a turn and many things are revealed that blows her away and leaves her questioning her judgment.
Will Bryce leave her husband for her hot-stripper lover or will she stay in a loveless marriage?
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write I’m In Lust With A Stripper?
Desiree Day: I was thinking about all the crazy things that happen at bachelorette parties and I thought it would be fun to write a story about a bride-to-be who falls for a stripper.
JP: What sets I’m In Lust With A Stripper apart from other books in the same genre?
DD: While my novella is erotica, with hot sex scenes, my character, Bryce, really reflects on how she could have done things differently. My character shows some growth.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to I’m In Lust With A Stripper getting out to the public?
DD: The key to my success is to keep writing. I currently have a combination of novellas and novels in digital format; they range from $.99 – $2.99 cents. I don’t advertise, but rely on word-of-mouth.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish I’m In Lust With A Stripper?
DD: Ideas are everywhere for a book, it really is just a matter of keeping your eyes and ears open. Once I decide on a subject matter, I start writing. I am not an outliner, nor do I write in chronological order. I get stuck if I write that way. I write bits and pieces of the story as they come to me, then go back and fill in the blanks, I have found that process to work very well for me.
I’m In Lust With A Stripper is relatively short, so it took me only a couple of weeks to complete. However, if I’m writing something substantively longer, like a full-length novel at 80K words that might take me about four months.
JP: What’s next for Desiree Day?
DD: I am working on a new short story, I’m Bi-Curious…This Weekend Only, which should be out soon. I am contemplating starting a blog.
Thank you all who stopped to read the interview. I know how precious everyone’s time is, especially this time of year. And a special THANK YOU to Joey for giving me this opportunity.
