Or… Xany interviews D.F. Krieger!
I know, I know… Some of you must be wondering, “Max! What were you thinking, giving Xany so much control?”
Well… I was thinking that since Xany read D.F.’s new romance, Whispered Desires, she’d be the best interviewer around.
You can be the judge of that…
Xandrea Wade: Married people should have tons of sex. That’s what I think anyways. ::shrug::
One minute passes…
Xandrea Wade: Aren’t’cha gonna answer me already? Caden’s waiting. ::huffs:: NeeNee says I shouldn’t lie about Caden waiting, well fine then. He’s asleep.
D. F. Krieger: ::laughs:: Sorry about that. Had a phone call. Married people should have lots of meaningful intimate moments. Sometimes that equates to sex.
Xandrea Wade: Well, yeah. ::giggles:: Or everything equates to sex, same thing. Why’d you wanna write about married people? What’s so special about it? I think Nessa’s gonna make NeeNee marry her. Those weird devoted cats do that. We don’t though, I mean some wolves do but not a lot.
D. F. Krieger: I write about married people because for a while there, my marriage sucked. Like big time. And I knew it shouldn’t, but people kept telling me that marriages are relationships where the passion dies and you coexist. I don’t accept that. I don’t think anyone should accept that. I could see a three-way marriage just because Mal won’t want to get out done.
Xandrea Wade: Ew, no way. You shouldn’t accept that. Relationships like that belong to bosses or cousins that you don’t like. Oh yeah! Like those Mormons. ::giggles:: Sister wives, baby.
D. F. Krieger: Exactly. But society pressures us into believing that once you are married, it’s okay for the romance to die.
Xandrea Wade: Oh Maxie pad is annoyed that I just started talking and didn’t ask if you were busy.
D. F. Krieger: ::laughs:: I am good. Phone call is done
Xandrea Wade: So what got you to make your own marriage not suck? Did you do journals too?
D. F. Krieger: Yes, we used journals. My husband was in the military, and gone… a lot. We used the journals as a way to give our sexual frustration an outlet that didn’t harm our marriage. Now, in answer to the “what got me to make my own marriage not suck?” The truth is it didn’t happen overnight. It took some pretty serious soul searching on both our parts. It took dedication and time and lots of work. What drove us to that point was printing out divorce papers. We both cried and I asked, “If we still love each other, why isn’t this working?” It posed an interesting question, and we actually sat down and worked on the answer to that, which allowed us to fix things.
Xandrea Wade: That’s good. You should’ve told Caden that ten years ago!
D. F. Krieger: Poor Caden. I think he gets enough advice without having to hear anything from me. ::winks::
Xandrea Wade: Yeah but he don’t listen. He calls NeeNee stubborn when he’s the worst.
D. F. Krieger: Well, that’s a man for you.
Xandrea Wade: I liked Jason in your book. That’s his name, right? I kept getting distracted and wanted to sex him good. Mal says I don’t read but I read all books like yours. With hot guys on the covers. I completely forgot the girl’s name. Go figure.
D. F. Krieger: ::laughs:: Yes, his name is Jason. And her name is Hannah.
Xandrea Wade: Oh, Hannah right… Well, anyway, back to Jason. He seemed to love what’s her name a lot.
D. F. Krieger: Yes, that’s what makes the story unique when it comes to romance eBook trends. The couple is married, in love, and trying to bring their romance back.
Xandrea Wade: Are you gonna write more books about Jason?
D. F. Krieger: He will be mentioned as a passing character in other books in the series, but each book will focus on a new couple. For example, book two is about Hannah’s friend Tabby and her husband Chris.
Xandrea Wade: Oh right I remember them. I think Tabby should be a cat. But that’s just my opinion. Hey! I got an idea for you!
D. F. Krieger: I’m sure deep down in her heart, she is one. ::winks:: Oh? Do tell.
Xandrea Wade: Maybe you can write about a married couple that gets sexy again with BDSM! But the real kind not fifty shades of dumb kind.
D. F. Krieger: That would be book three, called Defiant Desires. It’s BDSM and F/F.
Xandrea Wade: Max wants to know if you regret talking to me yet.
D. F. Krieger: Nope. Not in the slightest.
Xandrea Wade: Put Jason in it! ::giggles::
D. F. Krieger: ::laughs:: I think Hannah would murder him.
Xandrea Wade: Nessa will probably like that one. She likes girly things. Nee just likes Nessa. I don’t think she notices other girls.
D. F. Krieger: Nee doesn’t notice anyone sexual that’s outside her bubble.
Xandrea Wade: Mal likes girly stuff, too. And Caden. But they’re guys. They like lesbians like the ones in porn. Hey, is it weird writing sex scenes? I don’t get any ‘cause Maxie hates me and only let’s everyone see what Nee does.
D. F. Krieger: Yes, it is very weird to write sex scenes. Because I have to be able to make it realistic yet passionate and at the same time emotional.
Xandrea Wade: Sex scenes that is. I get plenty of sex. ::giggles::
D. F. Krieger: You don’t get any because people would die laughing when they read how you like to hang off the ceiling fan.
Xandrea Wade: That’s my favorite thing!! ::cracks up::
D. F. Krieger: ::laughs::
Xandrea Wade: So what other kind of questions should I ask you? Maxie pad says I’m talking too much.
D. F. Krieger: I’m surprised she doesn’t smack you around for that nick name.
Xandrea Wade: Oh she’s threatened to kill me off a few times but NeeNee won’t let her.
D. F. Krieger: I don’t think anyone would be happy if she killed you off.
Xandrea Wade: People say I’m the favorite. ::brushes invisible dirt from her shoulder::
D. F. Krieger: ::laughs:: Hmmm, other questions… I don’t tend to come up with questions for myself. They become rather deep.
Xandrea Wade: I like deep. ::giggles:: Jason’s my favorite. The therapist was annoying but they all are anyway.
D. F. Krieger: You think Callie is annoying? ::grin::
Xandrea Wade: Uh huh. She’s nosy and bossy. Say, do you always write based on your experiences?
D. F. Krieger: I had never thought about it, but yeah. I guess to some extent I do.
Xandrea Wade: What was the hardest thing about this story to write? NeeNee told me too ask that.
D. F. Krieger: The hardest thing was trying to find a realistic resolution that wasn’t just, “Hey, we’re having sex again. Everything is hunky dory and better now!”
Xandrea Wade: Nessa wants to know if you get turned on by writing sex scenes. Actually, I wanna know too. *grin* Hunky dory… hunky sounds good. Don’t know dory. ::shrugs::
D. F. Krieger: Let’s just say I may or may not ask my husband to help me check if certain positions or angles are possible… Even if I know they already are. >.>
Xandrea Wade: That’s a good answer! ::giggles:: How do you come up with all the titles for your stories?
D. F. Krieger: I try to use an element that reflects the feel or plot of the story. Sometimes a title hits me like a semi-truck, other times I have to play with ideas for days until something sticks.
Xandrea Wade: That’s interesting. Sometimes I pick a book based on title. Max says I only get one more question. ::pouts::
D. F. Krieger: I think Max is ready to put you to bed. ::wink::
Xandrea Wade: She says I wear her out. ::nods:: Okay, last question…
D. F. Krieger: Yay last question. Cause….I’ve been asked to go shoot aliens and save the world.
Xandrea Wade: P.S. – Don’t tell Shawnee about the aliens. They’ll probably kidnap us in book six or something.
D. F. Krieger: ROFL! I won’t tell her about the video game called Destiny then. Promise.
Xandrea Wade: If there was one thing you wanted people who read your stuff to take away from it, what would it be?
D. F. Krieger: That married couples can get the romance back and sometimes it takes unexpected methods or outside advice. Don’t ever believe that being married should make you feel ashamed to want sex, love, or attention from your partner more often than the social “norm.” Screw the norm.
Xandrea Wade: Screw the norm!! ::thrusts fist in the air::
D. F. Krieger: YEAH! ::joins in:: Okay thanks for talking with me. Go have lots of married sex!
Xandrea Wade: ::giggles:: Okay I will. Thanks for talking with me.
D. F. Krieger: Thanks for talking to me, too.
Okay people, now you gotta go get D.F. Krieger‘s book on Amazon. It’s really freaking awesome. I wanted to read it forever. I’m glad it’s a series. Jason is hot, the writing is good, and so are the sexy journal entries. You can get it for only a buck. C’mon! And don’t forget to leave a review. Here’s the picture and the burp– Oh, Max says it’s blurb not burp. Whatever. ::huffs:: Go read it!
Keep a journal of your wildest fantasies, but remember the two rules: The fantasies have to involve your spouse, and no reading your spouse’s journal. When the marriage therapist recommends this treatment to Hannah and Jason, they doubt the journal’s ability to fix Hannah’s loneliness or Jason’s stress. But as the pages fill with heated longings, they find themselves wanting each other in ways they’d only ever imagined.
