Interview with Edward Tailor

1. Welcome,
Edward Tailor. For those who might not be familiar with you, would you be a
dear and tell the reader’s a little about yourself? How did you get your start in
the writing business?

ED: First of all, thanks
for the interview.  As for me, I’m a very
new author of BDSM Erotica, having just had my first book, Cameron Part One,
published in October of last year with Horny Devil Publishing.  In December, I published a short story in the
Naughty Not Nice Christmas Anthology and just last week on January 22, Cameron
Part 2 published.  Born and raised in
Essex, United Kingdom, I graduated from school in 1986.  Working as an electrician, I spend a lot of
time on my own, so I listen to tons of books on audio.  I’ve always been an avid reader, or listener,
but just recently moved into writing first with role playing and now short
stories.  On a personal note, I have a wife of almost 20 years and teenage
son and we live in England.
2.  All writers fear
the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.

ED: For the most part I take a break, maybe
go off and do something else for a bit. 
Once I have a chance to clear my head and a bit of distance I find I can
plow on through.
3. Contrary to what some people envision about a romance
writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us.
With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend
your time?

ED: I usually keep pretty
busy.  Actually, it’s somewhat of a
challenge to find time to write.  As I
mentioned, I am an electrician so I work every day, either five or six days
each week.  In the evenings and on
weekends I do try and write when I am not spending time with my family or doing
some work on the house.  Not very
glamorous, is it?
4. I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their
pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are
their thoughts?

ED: Well my wife knows, of
course, and she’s very proud of me and extremely supportive.  Other than that I have a few close friends
who know and they’re quite supportive as well. 
The fans have been outstanding and the feedback I’ve gotten has
definitely kept me motivated to write more.
5. Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If
you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.

ED: It’s a mix for
me.  I like a variety of reads.  I’d say my top ten, not in any particular
order,  are: JR Ward, Stephen King, James
Herbert, Clive Barker, Jeaniene Frost, Christine Feehan, Larissa Ione, Terry
Pratchet, George RR Martine, and JK Rowling.
6. If you could choose one book to go to the big screen,
yours or otherwise, which book would you choose and whom would you love see
casted in the parts?  

ED: For sure I’d choose one of JR Ward’s books,
as I just love her Black Dagger Brotherhood Series. My favorite of the series is
Book 4, Butch and Marissa’s story.  I
think for Butch I’d have David Boreanaz play him and for Marissa I’d select
Reese Witherspoon.
7. Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now?
That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I
swear it’ll go no further.

ED: I’m happy to share.  Nothing top secret here.  In my The Pit series, Cameron Parts One and
Two are out so I am working on Harvey’s story. 
Part One was already submitted and part Two is underway.  I’ve also been working with Kassandra Cox on
co-authoring a few books.  We’ve turned
in one and are anticipating edits any day and our second is in the works.  We have a few ideas for more after that as
well.  With the limited time I have,
that’s about all I can manage right now.
8. Where can we find your stories and is there a particular
reading order?

ED: You can find my
stories on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance Ebooks, Smashwords and
Kobo.  Just search for Edward
Tailor.  For The Pit Series, you should
read Cameron Part One before Part Two. 
Harvey’s Story come after Cameron’s. 
The Christmas Anthology Naughty Not Nice contains my Hansel and Gretel
short which is stand alone and my stories with Kass are all stand alone as
9. Would you please share how your present and future fans
can contact you?

ED: I’d love to and I would love to hear from them! 
I have a Facebook page, a Facebook Author page, a website, and author
pages on Amazon and Goodreads.  

Links for
each are below.
10. Before we wrap up this enlightening interview, do you
have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.

ED: Only a big thank you to you for having me
here, to my family and friends for all of the support and encouragement and of
course, to the wonderful fans that have been reading my stories and encouraging
me to write more.


Thank you, Edward, for stopping by. Through this chat, I learned we have similar favorite authors in common (Christine Feehan and JR Ward). *smiles*

Mark your calendars, folks, because Edward will be back here again very soon. (February 22nd)
