Here is a question for my fellow writers - have you ever created a character whom you actually didn't wholly like? Obviously, I don't mean an antagonist, you're not supposed to like the bad guy, and not an anti-hero type, either, but someone who's meant to be one of the good guys. My main WIP - the "Beyond the Dragon Sea" Trilogy - focuses on the entwined lives of five central characters, over the course of a decade. Prince Tarak is the first character we meet, and a good deal of the story is told from his perspective (the POV does change but not erratically, there's no head-bopping, and it's essential for the story to make sense).

I must visit Saints and Sinners in Blackpool again soon for another new kinky outfit if I'm going to be visiting any more dungeons and clubs.
So it's been a very interesting year so far. My research, to date, has involved a trip to a gay sauna and a BDSM dungeon, as well as attending a 'Smut' event with a wax play demonstration/workshop. My short story, Ring My Bell, has been accepted for inclusion in the Sexy Little Pages' Anthology Rule #34, being edited by the talented Zak Jane Keir@decadentmadamezand I'll let you know as soon as there's a release date. In the meantime, my five latest short stories are available via my website http://nazmcewan.wixsite.com/erotic-author, directly from the publisher's websites or on Amazon, here's the link to my author's page on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dylan-McEwan/e/B01B5AKMHE/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_3
