WATCH OUT: D X Luc
SC: I want to welcome you all to another edition of Watch Out. This week I’m pleased to bring you author D X Luc. Welcome to Watch Out, it is so great to have you here. You know I’m already a huge fan of your sexy work. I’m thrilled to have D X as a guest. Get ready for one smoking read. You don’t want to miss this latest release.
SC: For the readers out there who might not know about you or your work, can you please tell them a little about yourself.
D.X.: An avid reader since I was a child, I never found a book I disliked. Mostly, you could find me lost in Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, or Ernest Hemingway, and my most favorite, Ancient Greek literature. Taking my love of books, I started writing poetry, short stories, and even helped with screen writes for my drama club.
By the time I was in my teens, my older sister introduced me to my first romance novel, The Hawk and the Dove by Virginia Henley. The moment I fell into the world of love, I was hooked, and my addiction for more grew until I found myself delving deeper into the erotic.
After being convinced that I had the skills to try my hand at writing, I went to work on my first story Down the Yellow Brick Road: Finding Home. And since being published, I’ve not looked back.
Now, as a busy mom of three, that homeschools, drives to activities, and manages to find time to just cuddle with my husband of ten years, I have to say, I love being naughty when I get the chance. It’s freeing and I wouldn’t want it any other way!
SC: Can you tell us a little about your current release?
D. X. : My most current is Touch of the Gods: The Wager. I brought the agelessness of Greek mythology and made it modern.
When love and war make a little wager, what could possibly go wrong?
I am Hephaestus. God of inventions, blacksmiths, and volcanoes. Sounds like I’m awesome right? Well, I’m not. In fact, I’m the loser of Olympus and a new bachelor to boot. Living the single life is great until a decade passed. Honestly if my divorce from the Goddess of Love wasn’t bad enough, I am still being rejected by the other women of my home.
Because of an incessant need to make me a pawn in his game, my brother, Ares convinces Eros to make a little bet. A wager that puts my lack of love life to the test. Sent to Earth, I’m skeptical, when suddenly I lose myself in the sensual scent and beauty of the full bodied Vanessa. She is my everything, my perfection.
Sadly, from a single caress upon her silky flesh, I sent our lives into a downward spiral of hell. To save her, I must get beyond my demons of the past. And to save me, she will have to decide if I’m worth giving up everything for.
SC: What influences the topics, and genre’s that you pick to write a story in?
D. X. : Usually my topics just hit me like a fat smack in the face. But for Touch of the Gods, that came from my wonderful daughter of only eight years of age. We had a lesson of the Greek gods and goddesses and after that, she asked why Hephaestus couldn’t have a happily ever after. I thought about it and recalled asking my mother the very same thing. Suddenly, the story came to life and had to be written .
SC: One thing readers might be surprised to know about you?
D. X.: I’m deathly scared of horses and rabbits. I’m really an animal lover, truly I am, but those things freak me out! I prefer the scaly and creepy crawly type of creature in my life.
SC: What is the biggest misconception you think people have about authors, and or the genre that you write?
D. X.: That I write “mommy-porn”. That’s pretty much telling me that my work has no merit, not meat and potatoes. Porn rarely, if at all, has a storyline, my work does. And to even separate that “moms” need different porn than men is beyond ridiculous.
Women watch porn, they read it too. Just as men do. I don’t write mommy-porn, I write books. Get it right!
SC: Currently listening to?
D. X.: I just found a song I love called “Holy Touch” by Foxy Shazam. I wanted it so badly that I downloaded it through iTunes (even though I don’t have an iPod) and Googled how to convert the mp4 to mp3 format. The lead singer hits a note so high, it’s unbelievable.
SC: Describe your books in 3 words.
D. X.: Addictive, funny, sexy
SC: What does a typical day look like for you?
D. X.: Oh boy, where to start. I wake up with my older two children around 9am and get their breakfast ready. After that, we start homeschool. The baby is usually asleep still until 12pm. We have lunch and then one more lesson before we’re done. They either play in their room or on the computer while I keep the baby occupied and work on promotions and writing/editing. Sometime during that I clean up a bit and start dinner which is ready by 6pm. Clean up time again and by 7:30pm they’re having dessert. 8Pm rolls around and I read them to sleep then it’s back to playing with the baby and catching up on the computer. I usually try to get a lot of work done at night so I don’t go to bed until 2:30am-3am. Then it starts all over again!
SC: Is there anything you’re currently working on that you can give us a taste of?
D. X.: I have a little seasonal anthology I’m working on. Here’s a bit from the first story, Spring Cleaning.
Excerpt from Spring Cleaning:
Refreshed, Leanore was glad to have showered and shaved. Her eyes fastened on what waited in the center of her bed and she enjoyed the friction of her thighs rubbing together. The sensation from her fresh hairless pussy heaven to her rising hormones. Her eyes shined with wanton glee as she sauntered back to where her trove of goodies waited for her expert organizational eye. She had them already set by size, now she had to go from oldest to new.
As her piles grew, Leanore’s excitement escalated until she was sure she’d burst and once she had finished her body tingled with anticipation. Licking her bottom lip she let the fluffy white towel drop to the floor and crawled up onto her massive bed. The sun was high and its heat made her room stifling. Then again, it could have been her own temperature that was on the rise. Perhaps re-opening the window would help.
Nude and without a care in the world, she lifted the window and breathed in the clean scent of cut grass and freshly planted flowers. This wouldn’t be a bad day after all, Leanore thought with relish and right before she pulled her head back inside, she saw him. Sam McFlandry. The sexiest man on the block.
He was bent over his lawn mower, checking its tank for gas and his ass was cupped sinfully in the worn jeans. Mmmm, yes he was the extra ingredient to jump start her “cleaning” spree. At that moment he turned and saw her, a smile playing on his lips. Leanore’s breath froze in her lungs and it took her a minute to grin back, waving her hand shyly. Could he tell she was naked and if so, did it excite him? Mind filled with sexy scenarios of what she’d do with Sam, she practically dived into the center of her bed.
“Oh Mr. McFlandry what you don’t know. The things I’d like to do with you.” Her voice was husky with her increasing need.
She picked up the first item, studying it in her hand. She had this particular device for over four years and it was one of her favorites. Came in handy often but maybe it was time to put it out to pasture. With a smile and a sigh, Leanore reclined on her pillows. Time to begin.
SC: Where can readers find out more about you and your work?
