Dreaming Up a Fantasy

Buy Maggie's Secret Wish HERE

By Starla Kaye
The first thing I come up with when I start a new story is the title. Every writer is different about that, many working with just a temporary title or simply calling it “Work In Process.” Not me. My title defines the story. My characters come from it.

When I came up with the title Maggie’s SecretWish, I knew two things immediately (as did the reader). First, there would be a heroine in the story named Maggie. Second, she had a secret wish. It needed to be special, something she wouldn’t flat out admit to almost anyone else.

Most of us are like Maggie, in that we lead lives where we present a certain image to those we work with, have acquaintances with, or share our basic lives with. A lot of us have another side that we show to very few people, if anybody else. That protected image of ourselves knows our innermost fears, longings, dreams…secret wishes. Maybe that “secret” person inside you wanted to be a grand adventurer, to travel to other worlds, or to be a super spy. Or maybe you have a bit more wild “secret wish,” something you wouldn’t want everyone to know about.

This is my Maggie. She leads a somewhat dull life as a website designer who spends a great deal of time alone. The men she typically dates are nice, but oh-so-boring. Deep inside her she wants more. With a basically lackluster love life, she reads erotica, dreams of doing much more than just slam-bam-thank-you-ma’am sex.  Beyond that she discovers an interest in light BDSM, mainly about spanking. She’s not particularly interested in anything harsh or super painful. She just wonders what it would be like to experience a bit of sting from a man’s hand connecting with her bare bottom. This isn’t something she would share with her family or friends. Yet she fantasizes about having at least one encounter with a man who is not vanilla, a man who is willing to show his dominate side.

Fortunately for Maggie, Madame Eve somehow knows her secret wish…and she knows the right man to fulfill it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Leave a comment admitting whether or not you have a slightly spicy secret wish of your own. You don’t have to do more than say “yes” or “no.” I’m the first to admit that YES I have one. One lucky person who leaves a comment will win an ebook copy of Maggie’s Secret Wish AND a small container of Rose Petal Soap Flakes. You can take a nice bath; maybe read of a hot romance while you soak, 
or just do some dreaming about your “secret wish.”

  4. Yes, and my DH already knows. ;) As for titles, I think of some at the beginning, and others, not until the end. I've had to change some as well.

    No need to enter me in the giveaway as I already have Maggie's Secret Wish. :)

    All the best!

  11. Yes. Surely there isn,t anyone out there that would say no. Even if one secret wish is full filled, I imagine that you could think of another one.annpa@gmail.com
