Interview and Giveaway with Solace Ames

Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

My name is Solace Ames, and I write avant-garde erotic romance. I also like to step back and look at sex with a sense of humor as well as wonder.

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

The Submission Gift is a ménage erotic romance. The basic set-up might sound sleazy as hell—a husband hires a rent boy for his wife—but something really tender and beautiful comes from the relationship, and the story’s as much about love as it is about sex.

Are you a mom ?

Yes! I’m a mom with two kids.

If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?

Definitely. I’ve always been a writing mom, though, so I’m used to it. It means I have to do a lot of writing at night and during lull times in the day.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I think some readers might be surprised to learn I’m a mom. I’ll come clean here, but I don’t talk about it much online! My husband is the one in charge of the Facebook and family social media stuff, and he does a great job at it.

If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?

The next book is going to be fairly risky and edgy. The tentative title is “The Constant Companion” and it’s about a young porn star who falls in love with an older rock star.

What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?

I’m working on the LA Doms #3 book now. And then when I’m done with that, I have an idea for a science fiction romance series. I’m still in the planning stages on that, but I have a feeling it’s going to be mind-blowing.

What is in your to read pile?

A mixture of erotic romance and SFF, mainly. I’m really looking forward to Chang-Rae Lee’s On Such a Full Sea, which promises to be an amazing and moving book.

Book Description:

Newlyweds Jay and Adriana had a happy marriage and a spectacular sex life—until tragedy struck. Wounded in a car accident, Jay spent a year recuperating while Adriana worked overtime as a chef to pay their bills. Though he’s made nearly a full recovery, some aspects of their intimate play will never be the same. It’s a small price to pay, all things considered.

But when a long struggle with the insurance company results in an overdue payout, Jay has a plan. He’ll take some of it and hire a high-end rent boy who specializes in sexual dominance. Not for him, but as a gift for Adriana, for taking care of him for the past twelve months.

Paul is the handsome stranger they choose…and the one who changes everything. What starts out as a onetime session to fulfill a fantasy turns into something bigger than all of them. But when the money runs out and Paul’s dangerous past resurfaces, the sacrifices required to stay together may end up tearing them apart…

About the Author:

Solace Ames has roots in the Southeast US, although her heart lives somewhere along the Pacific coast of Mexico. She's worked in restaurants, strip clubs, academia and the corporate world and studied everything from the philosophy of science to queer theory to medieval Spanish literature. Rejecting neat categories, her writing sprawls across genres and genders and swings from high art to low art, marching with the erotic avant-garde, tongue sometimes in cheek and at other times... well. Along with writing, education and political activism are her passions. Family takes up most of her time, but she loves to keep learning.
