Guest Post - Bound & Inked, where Sheri Savill doesn't color between the lines #BDSM

Sheri Savill does not like coloring between the lines.  She prefers to fill the entire page with the colors of her choice without any limits to her imagination.  Her books are like that, too.  No holds barred, no limiting lines, everything and anything goes.  Today she's going to talk about her May release Bound & Inked as well as her own take on BDSM and life.

Janna wants a tattoo, and sexy tattoo artist Mark knows just what she needs. Together they explore the line between pleasure and pain.

Janna Sommers is a brave woman who knows just what she wants: a tattoo -- a full sleeve black and grey tattoo, to be specific. It's an ambitious goal for anyone's first ink, but when she meets handsome and gifted tattoo artist Mark Temple, she finds herself yearning for something more than one of his original designs.

As she willingly places herself in Mark's experienced -- if sometimes cruel -- hands, she finds herself submitting to a strong and uniquely creative dominant, one who arouses intense physical sensations in her -- both pleasure and pain.

Bound to his tattoo table, will she also allow herself to be used as a living canvas for Mark's ... darker desires? Will she allow herself to be marked, indelibly and forever, as his?

NOTE: This is an erotic romance novella depicting consenting adults engaging in tattooing, piercing, extensive BDSM content, bondage, sexual scenes including anal, and more. If any of these things offend you, this is not the book for you. Approximately 24,000 words.

[This novella was previously published as Marked for Submission. Please be aware that this is the same story, but also features a few brand-new chapters and other new material, a new cover, and a new title. The book has also been completely re-edited to provide you with a more satisfying reading experience.]

Okay, Sheri, before we get to your excerpt, bio and links, I'd like to ask a question.

When you write, do you ever model any characters after actual people?
I’ll never tell. Heh. No, seriously, I think all writers infuse their work with at least some “real” don’t they? Even if it’s fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, horror, whatever, your own values, ways of seeing things, it’s all in there. It has to be. It’s your essence in there. Even if you’re putting on a voice, it’s your put-on voice, if that makes sense. So yes, I write about fictional characters that I make up entirely, but my real life experience in BDSM, since the early 90s, is definitely part of my tone and overall style, my “voice,” as they say. And sometimes I use small phrases in writing that I have used, or still use, in real life. I like my characters to speak a little more realistically, I guess. Aiming more at that in newer writing, too. I read over my older stuff and cringe. I can’t make character-Doms say things that make me laugh because they’re so cliché. For example, “submit to me now!” That kind of thing. Jesus. But I did that as a parody (Bound for Disappointment), though.

I'd love to ask you more questions about your "real life" experiences, but I don't want to keep our readers waiting.  Below is a tantalizing excerpt from "Bound & Inked" by Sheri Savill.

“Sorry, but the thong has to go, girl,” he said.
Her breath came in shallow pants as a gloved hand palmed her pussy and squeezed briefly, then released and moved to the sides of her silky thong. He slipped a finger up under the fabric, raising it off her skin, and pushed the scissors under and snipped. He snipped the other side, fully exposing her cunt as the material fell away. He lightly traced her mound with a gloved finger, looking pensive. It occurred to her that she was like a canvas being prepped for paint – the surface had to be clear, set up for the artist before he could begin to create.
“Definitely don’t want this,” he said as he abruptly yanked the thong completely away and tossed it to the floor.
Oh fuck, I’m so wet. I know he can see how wet I am.
“Someone looks like she’s enjoying this already,” he murmured, staring into her face. “I’m going to start tattooing your arm now. Lots of work to do. And yes, I can guarantee… It’s going to hurt.”
It’s going to hurt. His words set off a strobe-like shudder; her entire body shivered briefly. Janna took a deep breath and released it slowly, realizing that she had a long night ahead of her.
Oh. Wait.” He tilted his head slightly, studying her. Then he reached out and yanked her white tank top up and over her breasts so they were fully exposed. The top bunched up in a roll over the tops of her soft mounds, framing them. “That’s better.” He stepped back a little, looking satisfied.
Janna’s mouth opened slightly, her breath coming shallow as the cool air of the room hit her nipples. How they ached, wanting to be touched…
Oh my God. Oh my God.
It was really all she could think.

Though I hate to leave Janna bound and ready to be inked, I want to tell you a little more about Sheri now as well as where you can purchase her books or visit her online.

SHERI SAVILL is the author of dark BDSM erotic romance, and yes, humor both kinky and vanilla. She is a real-life submissive who was into BDSM way before it was cool. A career in media and journalism (reporter, editor, DJ, copywriter) drove her to the brink of insanity, so she became an attorney and web developer. 
Known for her irreverent blog, Savill is heavily tattooed, pierced, super geeky, easily annoyed yet fun-loving, and caffeinated. She speaks often of a treasured "letter from Dave Barry" that no one has actually seen. Award-winning sex author and columnist Violet Blue called Savill's BDSM parody "painfully, hilariously timeless." 
When she's not charging her portable electronic devices, Savill spends her time writing, thinking about writing, or wishing she had written. She scored a 780 out of 800 on a standardized writing test of some sort and, just as she predicted, has never had to use calculus in her entire adult life.
