Today we are interviewing Casey Carter about the erotica/adult romance Tie Me Up - A BLACK Series Episode.

Describe the plot of your new book in a few sentences. 
Suffering from a case of writer's block, Beverly needs something to get her creative juices flowing. She tried everything to break the monotony that was dulling her senses. Nothing seems to work until finally, Beverly enlists the help of John. At that point, she wishes she hadn't. What she experiences, while freeing her mind, opens her to a world she can't resist.

Who do you think would most appreciate this book?

Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, readers of Zane.

What drew you to write a book in the adult romance/erotica genre?

In my own relationships, I realized I wasn’t being satisfied and I began writing about what I thought would give me a fuller experience.  Once I started writing, I realized I wasn’t going to get what I wanted if I couldn’t communicate it to my partner.  So the stories began as a way of being able to tell my partner what I wanted and evolved into a way for me to engage others in conversation about what they really want and how to get it.

As a writer, were you able to empathize with Beverly’s struggle for creative ideas? 

Yes, in some ways, I am Beverly.  Being open in my own relationship has unlocked my sexual imagination which has allowed me to write more freely.

Who was your favorite character to write?

Believe it or not, even though the story is about Beverly, John is the character I love working with.  In Murder, the first Episode between Beverly and John, you get a sense that there is more to John than meets the eye and in Tie Me Up, your suspicions are confirmed.  John brings out who Beverly really is and celebrates that woman.

Is there any aspect of writing you don't like?

I love writing.  I love being able to express what I’m feeling, how I’m feeling, good, bad and ugly.  The part of writing I like least is the moment you decide to share yourself with the world and you sit back, waiting to see if they embrace you or reject you.  I find that utterly nerve-racking.

What do you have in mind for your next project?

My next episode centers around a single forty-something living in the heart of New York City.  Tribeca introduces you to Pamela Johnson and her girlfriends as they deal with dating and being single in the Big Apple.  The Encounter is a follow up Episode to Open House, a story about an Orlando real estate broker who is aggressive both in business and in the bed.

Is there anything else you'd like potential readers to know about your book?

Tie Me Up is the second story about Beverly and John.  John has become so popular, I’m in the process of drafting an Episode to dig deeper into who he is and I look forward to that because I suspect I’ll discover things about myself I didn’t know existed.

An excerpt from Tie Me Up 

Slowly he lowers his body onto mine.  The heat of his skin instantly lights me on fire.  I’m breathing heavy as I anxiously anticipate his next move.  Knowing John controls my every reaction is deliriously stimulating.  It feels like my nerve endings are all firing at once and the slightest touch detonates mini charges all over my body.
