A Merciless Cinderella, An Erotic Western & Writing Sci Fi Too! Meet the very talented author Ken Charles Feb 24 - 26

The Winner of a choice of  Sex Tales From West County: Billy's Tale or Slightly Twisted Sisters is Shadow! 

Ken Charles is the darker and naughtier alter ego of Charlie Kenmore, the author of
Earth Angel and other Seven Realms Tales, several screenplays and numerous short stories.
He started writing corporal punishment (CP) erotica after coming home frustrated one night after being stood up on a
first date. Originally intent on writing a “WHACK-OUCH-WHACK-OUCH” tale just to vent some spleen, Ken's plan was foiled when the story actually took on a life of its own and developed a plot line. It became one of Ken's most popular stories. Since then, Ken has taken CP from the bedroom to outer space. Whether set forth in flash fiction or in a novella, rubifaction is guaranteed.
We are very excited to have Ken Charles visit our blog this weekend. Our virtual location is a 1800 western brothel in Missouri. Yes, we are time-traveling to the past. Shhhh....Ken doesn't know exactly where we'll chat. We only sent him an address and a time to show up. So while we wait, let's go on inside, sit at the bar and have a few shots with the lovely ladies (painted ladies as they were referred to back then).

The ladies lounging on the chaise, eagerly look at the door as we make our way in. Their faces quickly showing disappointment, as they can clearly see we aren't clients. Stale cigar smoke and cheap perfume lingers heavy in the air. The bartender greets us with a nod.

Ahhh, here's Ken! *several of the ladies saunter up to Ken* Ummm, girls, he is with us. *takes Ken's arm* Let's find a table. Bartender, another round please.

Brenda & Steve: Hi Ken, hope your trip was too difficult! We’re so excited you could join us for a chat. When did you first decide to submit your work to be published? Tell us what or who encouraged you to take this big step.

Ken: My name is Ken Charles. I’m the darker, naughtier alter ego of fantasy author Charlie Kenmore. I’ve been writing erotica for years, much of it for Alexx Mom Cat, but Charlie’s ego wouldn’t let me get published first. Alexx is the one that suggested that I clean up some of the stories and see what happened.

Brenda & Steve: Please tell us a little about your new release Sex Tales from West County-Billy’s Tale without giving too much of a spoiler away.

Ken: Billy’s Tale is the story of 28 year old Billy (surprise!) who was orphaned as a child, and raised, as a matter of duty, by an extremely rich, but emotionally distant, grandmother. At 18, he turned his back on the money, and moved to LA where he put himself through school. Despite the snub, Grandmother leaves him everything when she dies. Billy returns to St. Louis with more money and leisure time than he ever imagined. He uses some of his new resources to open his dream business, and some of it to explore the kinky side of his sexuality.

Billy’s Tale was an interesting story to write, because I started in the middle. For several years, I had a single scene in mind. I just never had a proper vehicle to put the scene in. I decided to write the scene which is found in Billy and Missy’s first morning after (the excerpt below), and the rest of Billy’s Tale filled in around it.
Brenda & Steve: Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?
Ken: I am a pantser, not a plotter. The Muse provides characters and events as they are needed. In the case of Billy’s Tale, only Billy and Missy were in mind at the outset of the tale.
Brenda & Steve: How much research do you do for your books? Have you found any cool tidbits in your research?
Ken: I drop ship my research as needed. If I need a cool car, a medical device, or anything else, I go to the web and make a quick search. Charlie does that also, but as a fantasist, more often than not he’ll just make up whatever he needs.

Brenda & Steve: What is your writing process? Do you outline, write by the seat of your pants (Pantser) or a combination of both?
Ken: As noted previously, I am an unashamed, unabashed pantser. Sometimes I’ll have an idea for a climax and have to figure out a story to get there. Other times, I’ll have a thought to the effect “What if...” and I’ll start writing and see where it leads.
Brenda & Steve: Do you write full time? What did you do before you became a writer or still do?
Ken:  My day job is still as a licensed professional, but I’m hoping to set that aside when I grow up. I’ve also contacted the state about becoming a lottery annuitant, but so far, the state keeps picking the wrong numbers.

Brenda & Steve: Do you have a ritual when it comes to writing? Example….get coffee, blanket, paper, pen, laptop and a comfy place.

Ken: Writing is dependent upon two factors, iced tea and chocolate (if it’s afternoon). The rest is just details.

Brenda & Steve: Describe a typical writing day for you.

Ken: Top off the iced tea. Yell at my heart of hearts, Alexx Mom Cat, online at her work for not taking our 18 year old cat (who is now perched on my shoulder) to work with her. Make sure the chocolate is in reach. Aaaaaaaaand I’m off!
Brenda & Steve: Please give us a sneak peek at your future books. What’s on the horizon?
Ken: I have two more ebooks ready to release in February. Slightly Twisted Sisters is due out from No Boundaries Press. This is a collection of 14 short stories that are a bit edgier than most of my stories. The heroines are haughty, headstrong, bitchy and even outright sociopathic. There is sex, but sex isn’t the focus.

I have two more works under contract with NBP, Venus & Marks and CP Tales Across Time and Space due out  in a couple of months.
The Mercies of Cinderella is due out on Leap Day from Naughty Nights Press.
Payback is a bitch, and so at times is Cinderella. Cinderella is about to marry Prince Charming. Her evil Step Mother and Stepsisters have been convicted of high treason for their conspiracy to prevent the Prince from finding his true love, and are awaiting sentencing. Before the Prince passes sentence, Cinderella asks to take them into her custody for a year to determine whether she may speak on their behalves. The Prince grants her request, and remands the Step relations to one year under the tender mercies of Cinderella.
During this year, while Cinderella basks in the boundless love of the Prince and the joy of her first pregnancy, she applies the hard lessons she learned growing up to her Stepsisters, expressing her concern for their moral edification and well being with various paddles, straps, and even the scapula of a giant trap-door spider. Step Mother, who taught her that nothing in life is free, has to pay for her keep with sexual favors for all who provide her with any goods or services.
(I don't expect Disney to option this story for Cinderella 2.)
Brenda & Steve: The Mercies of Cinderella and Slightly Twisted Sisters were released early. Congratulations! What is your favorite genre to read and who is your favorite author?

Ken: Tough call. I read in all sorts of genres. I love political intrigue and espionage novels. I read mysteries and science fiction and fantasy.  Each genre has its own standard bearers, but some of my regular “gotta read” authors include James Patterson, Jim Butcher, Harlan Coben, Stewart Woods, and a number of others. With regard to erotica, hands down my favorite is Anonymous, the Shakespeare of the genre. Anonymous’s work spans the entire spectrum, from Victorian assignations to Steam Punk trysts.

Brenda & Steve: Is there anything else you would like to tell the readers we have not touched on?

Ken: I am working on the next volume of Sex Tales from West County with Erin O’Riordan. Billy is back, and is looking for some very specific kinds of hook-ups.

Brenda & Steve: Where can the readers learn more about you and find your books on the web? 

Ken: I am a frequent guest on my alter ego’s blog the Seven Realms Earthside Communications Center.  I can be found on Facebook

Brenda & Steve: Ken, thank you again for visiting with us. Readers below is an excerpt to tickle your fancy.

Sex Tales from West County-Billy’s Tale Excerpt: (Suggested background music -- )

     Missy swept her tongue back the other way and proceeded up the shaft. When she reached the top, she put him back in her mouth and bobbed up and down several times to ensure that he was as hard as he was going to get.

     She lifted her head clear, but continued stroking him with her left hand. She reached over to the side table and the remaining condom. She ripped it open with her teeth, then put the condom in her mouth. She leaned over and slid the condom over his turgid rod, using only her mouth.

     Missy clambered over him, faced and straddled him, and slowly impaled herself, singing softly to herself something like “Dum-de-de-dum-de-de-dum”. When he was fully inside her, she stopped and enjoyed the sensation of being filled. Billy reached up and squeezed her breasts. She closed her eyes, and began posting up and down, slowly and rhythmically to the music in her head. She continued to mouth the words silently, but occasionally gave voice to some of the lyrics, something about going into the city to save a horse.

     She continued to post. Each time she started down, Billy thrust upwards to meet her halfway. He rolled her nipples back and forth, then mashed her full breasts together. He pinched the nipples. Missy gasped and smiled and said something about gigging frogs.

     “I'll gig your frogs, baby.” He pinched her nipples again. “Frogs. That's a new one to me. Jugs, boobs, honkers, tomatoes, melons, tits, knockers, sure. Frogs? Nope. That one is new.”

     She giggled, then went back to mouthing her lyrics. She continued steadily lifting herself up, then slamming back down. Her breathing quickened. Billy squeezed her breasts together, did his first abdominal crunch of the day, and licked both of her nipples. 
     “What? What?”

     He dropped back against the pillow. “What?”

     When she didn't answer, Billy reluctantly released his grip on her right frog and gave her a sharp smack on her bruised bottom. Missy yelped, then threw her head back and screamed. “Yeeeeeeeeeehaw. Way to go, cowboy!” Billy thrust upwards just as Missy threw her weight back, practically doubling the heat and pressure on the top of his driving piston. Billy threw his head back in the pillows and came hard.

    Ken, you do sound like a busy man with so many books in the works AND a day job! Wow, I do hope the books take off for you!

  2. Thanks, Tonya. Not too sure about the bartender. Ordered a glass of a nice German Qualitatswein, either a Kabinett or perhaps a Spatlese (though a little sweet for my tastes), and he looked at me cross-eyed.

  3. Hi Ken, thank you again for chatting with us this weekend. Did you ever get your glass of wine? Sorry about the bartender. I think the fumes in here have made him loopy.
    *sits down at the table, lights a Cappone* Bartender, a shot of tequila, slice of lemon and some salt on the side please!
    *nudges Tonya* Where's Master? LOL
    Ken, I have a few questions. What genres does Charles Kenmore write in? Under which pen name have you written the screenplays?

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. Nope, no wine, just iced tea (winter blend 5 parts black to 2 parts green).

    Charlie writes fantasy and science fiction. He's has been monopolizing the afternoon working on another Power Pack Girls Adventure. If you haven't met the pseudo-triplets yet, then check out
    Saving Kiefer: A Power Pack Girls Adventure at

    The screenplays are undergoing transformation. One of them is now the fourth Seven Realms Tale by Charlie Kenmore, Play For Me.
    A young telepathic succubus comes to the city for a little harmless sex, grand theft, and homicide to take her mind off of the impending death of her mentor.
