Savvy Saturday- Interview with Brantwijn Serrah

Savvy Saturday strikes again! This time we managed to rope in an interview from the author of
steamy lesbian romances, Brantwijin Serrah. Her new books Goblin Fires and Lotus Petals will keep you on the edge of your seat with their hot passion. Today Serrah is going to tell us a little bit more about her books and their origin.

CBG: Tell us your latest news?

Serrah: With the sequel to Lotus Petals on its way, I’ve been working on the next book in my Chronicles of the Four Courts series: Elvyn Nights. Additionally, I’m hoping to put out a BDSM Fantasy novel in the next year, and compiling my current short ebook stories into a print books, including an exclusive erotic novella!

CBG: How did you come up with the title?
Serrah: Satin and Steel is the title to the second of the Books of Blood and Fire. The title is a reference to the love pairing: Rhiannon, the vampire warrior, is steel, compared to Vivienne, the sultry shadow-walker, who is satin. The original inspiration came from the tone and significance of the song Leather and Lace.

CBG: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Serrah: Satin and Steel is a book about grief and loss, and how we sometimes seek out toxic ways to end our grieving. There’s a lot in the book about bad relationships and bad choices, and bad love that feels so, so good. This book, being the second in a series of at least five, also continues the larger story-arc of Rhiannon and who she is to the vampire nation; it plants the seeds for future books, as well as revealing some of the fruit from the seeds of the first. Fans of Lotus Petals will be happy to know things in Japan are not over yet.

CBG: Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Serrah: Right now I’m focusing on two novel-length works: Enslaved, a fantasy BDSM novel I think of as Conan the Barbarian meets Lady Heather’s Box. In addition, I’m working on the sequel for Goblin Fires, which will hopefully be ready to submit within a few months.
