Guest Blogger Kameron Brook answers questions about her newest book Naughty Delights!
Join me in giving Kameron Brook a warm welcome! Today she answers questions about her newest book, Naughty Delights! She also talks about what inspires her to write!
Thank you for joining me, Kam. It's great to have you here. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’ve been married to Dirk for fifteen years and we have two wonderful children. When I’m not reading or writing, I’m usually working on some sort of house project. At the present time, we are remodeling the bathrooms.
What inspires your writing?
Dirk is my inspiration!
When did you start writing erotic romance? And why this genre?
I started writing about three years ago. First it started out as me jotting down my fantasies. After the positive reviews, I decided to submit my first story, “Girls’ Nigh Out”.
Are you a full time author?
My first job is being a mother. When I have free time, I write.
Who is your favorite author?
I don’t have one favorite author. I will share ten authors on my bookcases: Keri Arthur, Cheyenne McCray, Christine Feehan, James Patterson, Maggie Shayne, Kresley Cole, Lora Leigh, Shayla Black, Lara Adrian, and JR Ward.
How many books have you written so far?
Solo – one, same as Dirk. We have written five together though.
Tell us a little about your book, Naughty Delights.
“Naughty Delights” Blurb: It’s grand opening day of Guilty Pleasures, and Donovan is there bright and early with his best friend Jackson. He came to show support to Jackson’s girl, Felicia and maybe grab a sugary treat. Little did he know he’d find something sweeter than anything offered on the menu board – the woman of his dreams.
How long did it take you to complete “Naughty Delights” Did you write it freely or plan everything in advance?
It took a couple months to write it because we had family emergencies and end of the school year activities. Yes, we did plan some of it, such as the bakery board. It’s our favorite feature.
What inspired you to write “Naughty Delights”?
Years ago, a friend of my mom made her a hollow chocolate schlong. I remember her being embarrassed to eat it, store it in the freezer. I thought what a hoot it would be if someone actually had the job of creating naughty treats so voilà, the story was born.
Who is your favorite character in the novel and why?
I like everyone equally. I guess it’s the parent in me that can’t choose one over another.
How much of yourself did you manifest into your favorite character?
All the ladies have a little bit of me in them. I can say the same for the men having some of Dirk’s qualities, too.
When someone reads “Naughty Delights” what do you hope they gain from reading it?
I want people to laugh and squirm in their seats. *smiles*
Can you share what you’ve learned about the business?
There are going to be hard days so it’s best not to let those days get you down. If you do, you’ll never write again. Also, be prepared for writing blocks because eventually it will happen.
What is the most frequently asked question by the fans?
Is there any truth to your stories? My reply, “Yes, every story has some truth to them. Maybe a paragraph. Maybe a chapter. In some cases, the entire story is based on actually events.”
What are you working on now?
Right now we are taking some time off to enjoy the summer with our kids.
How do you keep your creative "spark" alive?
Lots and lots of sex!
Ha, ha, ha! What is your suggestion or piece of advice to new and upcoming writers?
If writing is your passion, don’t be discouraged if you receive a rejection letter or less than spectacular review. Your writing may not be for everyone but focus on the ones who seem to enjoy it. Those are your target audience!

This is it, Elizabeth thought as she pushed through the door to deliver a large batch of chocolate and vanilla sugar cookies to the display case. It was grand opening day for Guilty Pleasures, and she couldn’t be more excited or more nervous. Years of scrimping and saving had accumulated to this day. In a matter of minutes the bakery would be open for business, and their city would officially have their first taboo sweet shop.
Elizabeth took one final look around, making sure everything was perfect, when Felicia, her business partner and friend, appeared next to her, chomping on a fornication cookie.
Out of all the sugary creations crafted for the shop, Elizabeth and Felicia would agree these were the most fun to develop. They spent many wine-filled nights brainstorming and researching ideas for the inserts.
“What’s it say, babe?” Elizabeth asked, nodding toward the paper in Felicia’s hand.
Felicia laughed and read the naughty message, "Two heads are better than one, but three, now that’s what I call a party!" As she tucked the paper into her back pocket, she asked, “I forget. Was this yours or mine?”
“I actually think your man deserves credit for this one.” Grinning, Elizabeth grabbed the sampler plate off the counter and walked toward the front door, turning to take one final look around before the place filled up. She couldn't be any prouder of the decor in her little slice of heaven. She glanced to her left and smiled proudly as she admired the photos on the wall.
The food photographer they had hired did a fantastic job capturing the beauty and sexiness of several corset cakes available for purchase. But the icing on the cake, so to speak, was the mural to the right of the entrance. A local artist painted "What Are Your Guilty Pleasures" but the letters were actually naked people in compromising naughty positions.
Felicia giggled. “Oh yeah, it’s all coming back to me now. We definitely drank way too much that night.”
Nodding in agreement, Elizabeth turned on the neon sign and opened the doors for business.
Already, a few eager customers were waiting by the window. They actually applauded when Elizabeth stepped out of the shop door. She greeted them with a smile and offered them their choice of iced cocks or boobs. She wasn’t surprised the guests blushed when they made their selection and bit into the cookie. She expected to witness many rosy cheeks in the hours ahead of them—giggles too.
As the streets began to fill up with people going to work, Elizabeth tried to coax even more passersby into the shop with her funny shout-outs such as: “I bet our peckers taste as good as your man’s. No wait, even better!” And, “Our breasts are fantastic and all natural.” All the while she held up a naughty treat.
After the bell dinged behind her a couple dozen times, she realized the humorous approach to draw in customers was working like a charm. Now with them inside, she had no doubt every person who’d entered the shop erected from her dreams would be a repeat customer. And with this thought, she knew the many dinners of Ramen noodles were well worth the discomfort it cost her over the years.
