The General's Daughter by Breanna Hayse Book Tour and Giveaway :)
Without warning, the sharks quickly turned and targeted the girl. Ton appeared out of nowhere and intercepted two of the fish as Michael slammed one in the snout with his fist. Ton went after a fourth when Michael grabbed his sister’s shoulder, jarring her out of concentration. He could see her eyes widen as she recognized him. “Michael? What’s going on?” She seemed dazed. “Get your little ass back to that lab now,” Michael hissed, pushing her from the rocks before reattaching the neuroband around his neck. Ton followed and imaged his displeasure with his calf and sent strong thoughts to Michael to ‘bite her tail flukes.’ Michael couldn’t help but grin. The whale was finally getting the idea about how to discipline land walkers! When they entered the tank, Ton shoved Sam into the glass, flicked his flipper against her hip, and left with a resounding spout. Sam stared after him in disbelief. “I believe you just got a cetacean version of a spanking, little sister,” Michael said loudly as he yanked her out of the tank, ignoring the snickers of the tech team and her resultant blush.
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
I actually have two favorite places- the beach and the mountains. Geographically, my favorite warm place was a tiny beach in Okinawa, north island. It was like Hawaii in miniature- a tiny waterfall come down off a small cliff and onto diamond white sand, tiny pineapples and bananas growing wild and as sweet as sugar, and water so clear you’d think you were looking through a window. My favorite cold place is Denali national forest (the birthplace of Billion Dollar Daddies©: Jennie and the age-play town in the Northern Lights© series.) There’s nothing like the scent of snow and spruce, or the sound of the wind whistling through the trees, to bring my muse to life.
My dream, though- is to go to Transylvania (my grandmother was born there!) and travel through the Carpathian Mountains. One of my favorite menage books, Two By Day/Three By Night, is set there- and all the descriptions were from the stories I heard as a child.
Why did you and your husband decide to join forces to work with both submissive and dominants? What did you do to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships?
The primary reason was because we witnessed the damage being done on sites like Fetlife and phony blogs where people were getting hurt because there was no mentoring or accountability. This problem grew with the coming out of ‘shaders’ (people claiming to be BDSM experts after reading 50SOG which is, as we all know, NOT a true depiction of our lifestyle). With education, comes acceptance- and we decided to take the risk of exposure and give back to the community in appreciation for what we had gained. We’re both old school- and that meant showing, not telling, people who we are. We were open, honest, and transparent, and shared that BDSM is not about whips and chains, but about love, trust, integrity and accountability. Surprisingly enough, people who found out about me were excited and curious while John (bless his heart- he’s fairly private) received the response of Ah! That explains everything! LOL! Poor guy.
To start, my beta readers keep me grounded. These ladies are brutal and I love every one of them. They are devoted to the characters and won’t hesitate to tell me if something is off, inconsistent, or unbalanced. I strive to maintain truth and realism in my work as much as possible, particularly in the contemporary pieces. I don’t know if you’re aware, but I’ve taken ALL my contemporary works and placed them under the umbrella of Graye Manor. That means, in a nutshell, that all the characters know someone/are connected with another book/series, and that they all are unified under Dorian in one way or another. It’s actually been a lot of fun because I’m not reinventing the wheel- rather, I’m continuing with sharing the characters lives and how they intertwine with one another. The readers are eating it up, too. They don’t have to lose a beloved character just because the series is done. It’s been a challenge, though! I’ve got (at least) seven series and a few dozen singles to work into the world of Graye Manor- and make the timeline fit all of them!
