Blog Tour: Capitol Submission by Skylar Cross


Skylar Cross
Capitol Submission







Blurb


Hotshot D.C. Attorney Terissa Ivers has two huge problems. First, her new client has uncovered information that may implicate the hot single 37-year old war hero President Harrison Pierce in the tragic assassination of the previous President and First Lady. Second, Terissa can’t stop herself from giving in to submissive encounters with a mysterious dirty-talking dominant man whose face she has never seen…a man with a dark secret and a very high position in the U.S. Government.

When her client ends up dead, Terissa finds herself embroiled in a conspiracy that stretches to the highest levels of Washington. Trusts are broken, shots are fired, and identities are revealed as her life spirals out of control.


Terissa finds herself in a race against time to figure out the high-ranking official who works for the shadow group Solvane, locate a nuclear weapon stashed in an American city, and free twenty-one captured American soldiers before they are killed...all while convincing the American media that the dominant man who takes her to new heights of passionate rapture is innocent. A 4-book series. Mature content. 18+ only.


Reviews of all 4 books: 5 Stars for all 4!!! 
Book 1:  
This was my first book by Skylar and I was very intrigued from the get go. I read this book in under an hour I just couldn’t put it down. At first I thought it was all told in Terissa’s POV but I loved how it switched over to Harrison as well.

Terissa goes to a club with her co-worker but it’s not a normal club. This is where she first meets her mystery person. Of course we know who it is but Terissa still has no idea. She is an attorney by day but also has a submissive side, which loves to come out.

This is a very fast paced story. I literally have so many questions that need answers. There are things happening that I feel are actually something completely different. When book 1 ended, I was like NOOOO I have to keep going to find out what is going to happen. Don’t miss out on this awesome start to this 4 part series.

Book 2:  
After reading book 1, I went right into book 2 I needed some answers. But this book left me with about 100 more. Things are starting to come together but I think things are definitely not what they appear. I also think others are not who they appear to be either.

Terissa turns to her fellow co-worker for help but he isn’t who she thought either. She is still seeing her mystery man and finally putting the pieces together about who he really is. Terissa knows what she is doing is wrong but she loves it so much and it gives her an amazing thrill.

Harrison is once again stuck between a rock and hard place. Someone is trying to frame him for something he didn’t do. Terissa finally comes face to face with her masked man but it isn’t for reasons she thought. I cannot wait to go into book 3.

Book 3: Just when I thought things couldn’t get any crazier everything is suddenly turned upside down for both Terissa and Harrison. Terissa has chosen to help the president who is now being framed for something he didn’t do. Terissa is trying to help Harrison and while everything is coming together these two still cannot fight their attraction to each other.

People who Terissa thought she could trust are actually the people trying to frame Henry. Secrets are starting to come undone and the game is about to change. Fingers crossed that things go in favor for Henry and Terissa. The end of this book left my mouth hanging open. I cannot wait for the final installment. I am hoping Terissa and Henry make it out on the other side.

Book 4: I highly enjoyed this entire series. I was sucked in from the first book and I had to find out how it all ended. There were times when I had to hold my breathe because I was so nervous about what was going to happen.

I don’t really do spoilers in reviews so this is just one series that you will have to read. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen something completely different does. I really loved Terissa’s character. I loved watching her develop into a strong woman. I also fell in love with the dirty mouth president Harrison. Don’t miss out on this series you will literally read them all at once!

Author Bio




I love dark, mysterious, and deviant. Powerful dominant alpha males with troubled pasts who find strong but unfulfilled submissive women. Both need to escape the "rules" of society (just like me... haha.) Together they make hot steamy delight and fill in each other's damaged parts. This is me. This is what I write. Hope you like it.

Interview


1. When did you first start writing?

As far back as I can remember. In grammar school, I was always writing stories. I analyzed TV shows and wrote sequels to episodes.

2. What inspired you to write?

For years, I stayed away from writing because somehow I ended up believing that nobody could make any money from it unless your name is Stephen King or James Patterson with movie deals.

Two things happened. First, I fell in love with a woman who I couldn’t be with. A friend suggested I write a story about her to get her out of my system. So I did.

At the same time, I found out that authors make money self-publishing on Kindle. So I put the story up, and got three sales of it the very first day. Then I focused on getting better, learned how to market books, and BOOM!...I had a new career.

As for the woman who inspired me, she has shown up as different characters in several of my series...until now. I think I’ve finally written her out of my system...lol. And no, as far as I know, she has no idea she was my inspiration.



3. Who are some of your biggest influences?

I grew up reading Robert B. Parker (the Spenser detective novels) and John D. MacDonald (the Travis McGee detective novels.) Their writing style influenced me heavily. The first chapter of THE STARK AFFAIR is very Parker-esque.

My favorite in recent years is the gone-too-young Vince Flynn, author of the Mitch Rapp CIA series.

But when I came to the erotic romance world, the one book that BLEW ME AWAY was STRINGS by Kendall Grey. The character Letty Dillinger’s potty-mouthed stream-of-consciousness “I-love-sex” style tainted me (in a good way) forever, I think.

4. Is there a special place you go and a certain mind frame you like to be in before you write?

I like to take my laptop outside and write. As for frame of mind, I leave that up to coffee. And then some coffee. And then some more coffee. And then...lol.

5. What's the most exciting thing that happened to you during your writing career?

The day I opened up KDP, looked at the numbers, shouted “Holy shit!” out loud, and realized I could quit my customer service job.

But even better than that, I love the fact that I can move people with nothing but my fingertips on a keyboard. One reviewer wrote that I made her cry. Now, I don’t like going around making people cry, but realizing that what I wrote touched her so deeply was a profound moment.

6. How do you come up with all the characters and different exciting plots?

Beats the hell out of me. Oh, wait, I know...drugs! No, just kidding. What’s funny is that it’s different every time. THE CAGE SESSIONS and FIFTY DAYS were both seat-of-my-pants. I started both off with a situation and then just followed the characters around waiting for stuff to happen...and a lot did.

I'm still not sure how a story about a girl stuck in traffic with a sex toy on her car seat turned into an epic about a tortured rock star, a controlling mother, a take-charge transsexual, and a heroin-addicted porn star. Nor how I finished it. (That was THE CAGE SESSIONS.)

For THE STARK AFFAIR and CAPITOL SUBMISSION, I planned everything out in advance...even though as I wrote a lot changed.

The idea for CAPITOL SUBMISSION came out of my obsession with the TV show SCANDAL. It’s way overdone, but Shonda Rhimes is a master plotter.

As for characters, some come from my warped mind, others inspired by people I know. Who? I’ll never tell wink emoticon




7. What authors have inspired you through your writing and how did they inspire you?

Like I said, Kendall Grey in STRINGS. Also Sky Corgan, who inspired me to learn about the marketing side of things in a very detailed and precise manner. If it wasn’t for Sky’s advice, I would never have had that “Holy shit!” day I described above. Roxy Sloane’s dirty-talking alpha males also inspired me to make my men more over-the-top masculine.

8. Do you have advice for any writer who's struggling right now?

Pay attention to the authors who are making money. Research the market. Be careful that you’re not writing stuff that YOU love but that doesn’t have a large enough following to make you any money.

Learn everyday. Stay on top of what’s happening in the industry. The whole game changes constantly. Like last year when Kindle Unlimited came out...fortunes were made while others quit the business. You have to adapt to the changes, go with the flow.

9. What's the silliest thing that you have ever experienced in your writing career?

Authors who compete. The way I look at life is win-win. I help other authors whenever I can. We’re all in this together. There is no need to one-up each other. There’s enough money to go around for all of us, even more if we work together and help each other out.

10. Could you share something extra that you would like your viewers to know about you are your writing?

I love my characters. Sometimes too much. When I was in the middle of THE CAGE SESSIONS, I got quite emotional because I was living their lives morning, noon, and night. Since then, I’ve learned to detach a bit more to keep my sanity.

Extra things your fans would like to know

Your favorite song?

SON OF A PREACHER MAN by Dusty Springfield
Sexiest song ever, in my opinion.


Your favorite book?

Oh too many to mention. THE GODWULF MANUSCRIPT by Robert B. Parker. THE DEEP BLUE GOOD-BY by John D. MacDonald. EXECUTIVE POWER by Vince Flynn.

Your favorite movie?

CASABLANCA.

“You’re going to get on that plane.” Best movie scene ever.


Your favorite food?

Like Joey on FRIENDS, sandwiches. LOL


Your favorite thing to do?

Oh now, that’s a bit personal, don’t you think? LOL wink emoticon Although I write about it a lot.
