A little something to heat up your summer…

Sure, elements of Romance can add warmth to Erotic adventures, but the Kept series is hot enough on it’s own… Nothing deep, nothing poignant, not a lot of emotion… Just a collection of sexy stories written from the perspective of Casey, a nineteen year old college studied discovering her desire for rough sex…

Book 1 – Kept: I’ve become his dirty little secret

Holy hotness batman!

Casey has been lusting after her next door neighbor since she hit puberty… Sitting under his (conspicuously open) window as he has his way with whatever woman he’s brought home for the night.

Now she’s a nineteen year old college student, and though she still steals away under Mr. Davis’s window, she’s also being dragged to bars by her best friend Sarah.

One such adventure with Sarah leads to a wild night of group sex which Casey will never forget.
We’re talking:
Double Penetration,
Foursome (mffm)…

After all that, Casey is no longer content to stay on the sidelines listening to Mr. Davis. She’s determined to find out what happens on the other side of the window…

Everything moved quickly in this story. It was fast and hot, and I’m surprised so much sex was packed into a mere 18 pages!

Additional Details:
Light BDSM,
Orgasm Denial,
& Voyeurism…

Book 2 – Taken: I Am His Dirty Little Secret

There’s no going back now…

I still occasionally sat below his window wondering if he knew I was there or not, pleasing myself as he used each of them to satisfy his own desires. I craved to be back in that chair again, trembling by his hand.

Casey was left reeling after her night with Mr. Davis – her demanding neighbor used and debased her to satisfy his own lust. She tried staying away, tried ignoring him, tried turning a blind eye to the parade of women Mr. Davis is still bringing home…

But it wasn’t long before she started sitting under that window again…
Craving to be used once more…

This installment of the Kept series includes the following elements:
Orgasm denial,
Light BDSM,
Sex in public,
Light bondage,
& consensual rape fantasy

Book 3 – Controlled: And Used To Please

With friends like these…

The part of me that enjoyed being used also wanted to be desired, and clearly, I wasn’t.

Casey is far from done reaping all the benefits of Mr. Davis – her sexually aggressive neighbor has awakened a flood of desire within her and she’s done trying to fight the pull.

She decides to take the bull by the horns – or her neighbor by the cock – and become the aggressor. It becomes clear that Mr. Davis has enjoyed his interludes with Casey but he has no desire to pursue her in any way.

She makes a plan:
– be irresistible
– knock on his door
– walk right into his clutches
– have wild kinky sex
– repeat as necessary

I would go over to his place and initiate what I had dubbed Mission: Get fucked.

Mr. Davis shuts the door in her face.

Over the next few weeks Casey pretends she isn’t mourning the loss of his touch while watching him bring home new women each night…
She’s not sitting under his window anymore…
She doesn’t care anymore…

Until one night Mr. Davis brings home Sarah, Casey’s best friend…

This installment includes:
Fantasy Masturbation,
Light Domination,
FFM Threesome,
& Orgasm Denial

Book 4 – Released: To Make My Own Dirty Little Secrets…

A naughty finale befitting this sexy little series

This time there would be no rejection.

Well… I say finale… but who knows? This could be the beginning of a brand-new journey for little Casey…

In one of the first moments of actual plot in this series (grasp!) We discover that Casey does not have the grades necessary to make it into Med School. She’s decided to embark on a new adventure – one which promises to take her to Europe…

She says goodbye to her family, friends, various sexual conquests, and gives an epic ‘farewell’ to Mr. Davis…

She hops on a plane for France to start her new life abroad.

…the French accent made things far too easy for the guys here. That is, if they wanted to make a move on me.

Unfortunately (Well, fortunately for us) old habits die hard, and it’s not long before Casey finds some kinky Frenchmen to indulge in…

The real question: Can Casey find love in the midst of all this hot sex?

In this installment of the Kept Series:
Light BDSM,
MMFM Foursome,
Orgasm Denial,
& Double Penetration…

Interview with Jamie Fuchs

If you were to describe your book in only one word, what would it be?

What would you say inspired you to write it?
I was driving home after a long day at work and I wasn’t in the best mood. The book was supposed to be a lot darker than what it turned out to be (hence the title of “kept”), however I didn’t have it in me to finish it like that the next day. 😛

What was your source of inspiration for Casey?
I’m not really sure actually, she just kind of created herself!

Have you ever lusted after a neighbor like Casey does with Mr. Davis?
I grew up on a farm, I didn’t really have neighbours like this 😛

What was your first Erotica reading experience?
50 Shades, of course!

Have you ever been hit by the infamous “writer’s block”? What did you do to escape it?
Yeah, I’m sure we all get hit with that! I usually just call it a day and go do something else. I’m the type who only writes when the inspiration is strong, I don’t want to end up hating writing!

What is your all time favorite book?
I loved the Harry Potter series growing up! But I might be disillusioned by the awesomeness of a childhood memory.

What made you pick that one above all others?
The late nights constantly flipping pages wondering what was going to happen next.

What’s the longest time you’ve spent working on a project?
On a writing project, two weeks of constant all day writing.

Would you say becoming an author has changed you? In what way?
My writing skills are improving slowly again! Years of the internet and no more schooling slowly chips away at you 😛

Was there ever a time, during your work for the book, when you felt like giving up? What made you change your mind?
Nope! I enjoyed writing this one all the way though 🙂

What does your day-to-day life consist of? What else do you do, aside from writing?
Lately I’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into my website. That’s been my main focus for the last few months. I’m the type who has to finish one project at a time (which sucks too because I have random days where I really want to write!)

How do you deal with bad reviews or acid criticism? What would you advise other authors to that effect?
It doesn’t really bother me. Most negative reviews don’t seem to offer anything constructive, they just wanted to tell me how bad my book was! It’s all opinion, you’ll never find thousands of people with the same opinion.

Do you have any intention of continuing Casey’s adventures?
I do! Eventually. 😛 There are definitely a few other projects I’ll have to write first though.

What do you have stored for us in the future? What are you working on/planning on next, aside this title/series?
I still have a lot of work left on my website that I’d like to complete, however I’m probably going to try getting some more short stories out randomly. “Rebel” was pretty successful as a standalone book, I’ll probably try and serialize that.

What made you decide to become an Author?
Two long distance relationships makes a person pretty good at word sex!

What would you say was the toughest part?
Figuring out the steps required to publishing. You should see my first cover attempt, they’ve come a long way 🙂

Did you hire professionals for editing, cover design, formatting?
Editing for sure, that’s something you can’t teach yourself. No matter how many times you read your own words there’s always something to miss. The other two things I slowly taught myself through trial and error.

How did you decide who to hire, if you worked with pros?
I’m part of a little author group and one of the women there offered to edit a book of mine. I took her up on it and she kicked ass so I stuck with her.

How long did the production part take, from the moment you began working on the manuscript to self-pub to when you hit ‘Publish’?
For short stories it’s usually about four days, for an entire series it can take months (depending on life/work/etc).

Where is your work being distributed, Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, AllRomanceEbooks/Omnilit, some other distributor? How did you decide which one(s) to go with?
Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, iTunes, ARe, Kobo, Google Play, and a few libraries that Smashwords distributes to. I decided on these purely on the recommendations of others.

If you could turn back in time and do things differently, would you? What would you change?
Oh yes, definitely! I spent a lot of time re-working things like formatting, covers, etc. I’d simply go back and do everything right the first time.


If you could wish for any one thing, and it would immediately come true, what would you wish for?
Teleportation would be a pretty cool superpower 😛

If you were stranded on an isolated island, what’s the one thing you’d absolutely wish to have with you?
A Hammock 🙂

Name your favorite fruit.

Coffee or tea?

Favorite season?
Summer of course 🙂

How about favorite time of the day?
Evenings just before dark

Were you a boyscout/girlscout?

Favorite food for breakfast?
Eggs, ham, and cheese on toast.

Latest book you’ve bought and read?
Draw by Cora Brent.

Do you collect things, like stamps, or key chains, or shoes?

Favorite color, you know you want to tell us!

Drama or comedy?
Comedy for sure.

Have a fav quote or personal motto?
My dad got me on this one at a young age:
If you’re going to do something, do it right.

Cats or dogs?
That’s an impossible question!

Dinner by candlelight or a night out clubbing?
Night out 🙂

Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Chips. I’ve been recently informed that you guys in the USA don’t have all dressed ruffles chips, but those are my favourite! I’m sad for you 😦

Favorite Swear Word?
