Read a sexy excerpt from Pleasure Principles by Lesley E. Hal

BPM: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write Pleasure Principles?
LEH: I was trying my hand at erotica when I submitted my short story, Stormy Weather, to Noire's online magazine. The story received mad feedback in which later I used the same character, Bianca Brooks, to submit to Zane's Chocolate Flava franchise that went on to become a six time New York Times bestseller. My contribution to "Succulent" Chocolate Flava II, was Riding the Friendly Skies that Zane penned as one of the crème de la crème stories from the book. After being selected by Zane, the Queen of Erotica herself, that gave me the validation I needed to write a full length erotica novel featuring Bianca Brooks.
BPM: What did you do to the story and plot Pleasure Principles to enhance it from the short story it derived from in the anthology?
LEH: I gave Bianca a story that delves deeper into her obsession with success, pleasure, her promiscuous behavior, scandal and my favorite factor, DRAMA.
BPM: Everybody knows that sex sales, and this is very true in the book industry. Although the sex reels readers in, what do you provide in Pleasure Principles that gives your readers a complete literary experience?
LEH: Being an avid reader, I love a story with a detailed storyline. A lot of times when you read erotica, we get the steamy, we get the money shots, but what we rarely get is a story outside the sex scenes. With Pleasure Principles, I made sure to prepare a full course of seduction, drama, laughter, tears, shock, suspense, twists, surprises and experiences that weave the story together into one satisfying thrill ride that will deliver everything the reader wanted and more.
BPM: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish Pleasure Principles?
LEH: It took me roughly about eight months to complete Pleasure Principles. My writing process is to just do it! I don't have to be in a special mood or require anything other than a computer since my handwriting is so atrocious. LOL!
BPM: What's next for Lesley E. Hal, author and business woman?
LEH: Cougar Suites with N'Tyse and Blind Temptations II. Check out part one "Blind Temptations" the Seduction of Sex, Lies & Betrayal to see what all the drama is about!
READER 4-STAR BOOK REVIEW
Lesley E. Hal gives us a good little page-turner in Pleasure Principles. Set in Dallas, the opening scene gives us a quick glimpse into the mindset of our protagonist, Bianca Brooks, owner of the up and coming catering/event planning company, Pleasure Principles.
Bianca has a sexual appetite to rival the entire Dallas Cowboys football team and a certain recklessness that puts back roads racers to shame. An already interesting love life turns downright chaotic when Bianca finds herself sexing both her girlfriend and her girlfriend’s high-profile husband. Neither one knows about the other nor how Bianca’s relationships with the two of them are punctuated with sexual adventures with her neighbor, his girlfriend, and more. The sexual high jinks start strong from the first pages of the book with a story that keeps us reading to the very end.
