Hello, Decadent World!

Hi, I'm a.c. Mason. But everyone calls me Mason so you can too.

By day I have a super hero job, but by night I am an evil mastermind that delves into dark places to form intricate stories of passion and adventure. Being a complex character myself with a heritage of Scottish, Belgian, African American, and Cherokee and having traveled widely and studied theology, politics, history, horror, and erotica, I cannot help but create worlds and characters that entice with their passion for life and each other while the world and circumstances twist around them. It’s all true, cross my heart and hope to get a lot of sexy men sent my way. Wink!

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s uncover more about me and my stories.

Boxers or Briefs?

I ask you, ‘why pick one?’ when you can have a man wearing neither. Lol. Take them off.

When do you write? How long per day?

I prefer to write in a bed at night with hot naked men next to me. Okay, fine I admit it. I don’t get much writing done that way. But I still prefer it. As for how long I write usually about five to seven hours week days and often over ten on the weekends.

Tell us about your favorite character from your books.

The heroine of Surrendering To The Right Man, Indy Kent is one of my favorite characters. Indy is the first new characters I wrote when I decided to get published. Her journey is one that we all go through at some point or another in our life. When we are holding on so hard to what we think we should want, who we think we are, what we think we should do and even the man we should be with and yet a little part of us nags us because we know we’ve changed. We have to find the courage to leap. She isn’t perfect and makes mistakes along the way for that I adore her. And she’d got two hot suitors Liam and Tim. What is there not to like about that?

Plotter or Pantser? Why?

I prefer to be a pantser, but I accept that at times I must do a mix of both. The reason for this is simply time. I can write a novella or novel from a 200 to 300 word blurb or from a 2 to 5 page synopsis. I don’t write a novel to write a book. It also means I don’t have to write a blurb and synopsis at the end.

Has someone helped or mentored you in your writing career?

My writing path has been guided by many hands. I don’t know how others are out there writing alone. I’ve dedicated nearly every book I’ve written to those who have helped me along the way. Surrendering To The Right Man is no different. Because I’ve had other help me, I’ve given of myself to aspiring authors in the same way.

Ah, I am so like you with the pantser/plotter stuff. I call myself an undercover outline, but I do know the story. If I try to plot, it stops me dead!

I’m the same way. I like getting to the destination but have way more fun on the journey.

Indy Kent is a cool name. It sounds like Indy has some decisions to make. I hope she takes the leap. It's good to get to know you better.


Susan Hanniford Crowley said...

I think your preferred way of writing is excellent. Do you bring a laptop or a journal and pen into bed?

a.c. MASON said...

Thank you Kathleen.
