Kel isn’t at all the animal locked in a cage that he appears to be. Secrets keep him there, hidden from those who hunt him. But what does a man do when he needs physical contact to survive, but can’t stand the burning pain that comes with another’s touch? He’s found a way to get a small fraction of his needs met at the nightclub, Sleeves. What happens when he lets in an unknown woman with a healing hand? Casey can see past the vulgar mouth to the affection-starved man hiding inside. When she does, all hell breaks loose, and the past finds him. Will he be able to avoid the agency, or will they add Casey to their twisted experiments? She entered the cage with him, and now it seems there’s no way out.

1. Tell us about your book?
Sleeves is a scifi erotica about a man who acts like an animal, caging himself, and baiting women to touch him. Clearly there’s something wrong with him, and Casey wants to know what it is. She takes pity on him, shows him affection, and things change for both of them from her simple acts of tenderness.
2. What makes it hot/ different?
He’s got an extremely dirty mouth, and has a penchant for making women so wet, he barely has to touch them before he penetrates them. But that’s the point. Touch is agonizing to him, so he has to navigate his way around something he craves more than anything, but causes him excruciating amounts of pain. Did I mention this man is about as horny as they get? *winks*
3. What was the hardest part about writing it?The hardest part was knowing I was putting it all out there. I did not hold back at all, and in so doing, I knew it would probably offend a lot of readers, but that’s who Kel is. I couldn’t write him any other way than with the crudest mouth imaginable. His past dictated that, and who was I to tone it down at the expense of the story? There’s a reason he acts like a savage beast and has the tongue of an inmate high on crack.
4. What, in your opinion, was the sexiest part of your book? At first it was the opener, when you first realize this man in this cage is actually jacking himself off, getting women in a club to help him while he flings dirty words at them. It’s shocking, but so crazy hot, it made me wish I could be there. But then the ending topped it for me.
Why? I can’t reveal why or it would give it away. Just trust me—the end with Kel in another cage is really hot.
5. What can we expect from you in the future?
I’ve got one book coming out per month all the way through to January. Then I might take a month off, and get back to it again. My upcoming projects are Slick as Ides. Release date of September 20th. It’s ascifi erotica with a germophobe, computer hacking genius, who’s an inventor, and the dirty talking, crude man that stirs her up as he steals her inventions, breaks into her house, ties her up and has his wicked way with her. He’s got issues, and that’s my favorite part about him, next to his wicked tongue. After that is my story, Knots, release date of October 18th. It’s a contemporary BDSM Dom/sub story. It’s a little more romantic than most BDSM stories I’ve read out in the market, and focuses on the softer side of the relationship in this lifestyle. After that I release Shroag 50, my first series, and this one’s a scifi historical erotica. That’s a mouthful! It’s about a time travel agent who has to go back and impregnate key historical figures, and of course he’s alpha all the way. During the holidays I’ll be releasing 2 more: See Rick Run—a contemporary BDSM cyber domination love story where the man’s much older than the woman, and her previous college professor. He proposes class members try out a social experiment by coming online to a chat group, and exploring how people behave when they’re free to be as naughty as they want. Only, one of his previous female students is determined to figure out which anonymous male in the group is him and how to catch his attention. After that, a historical fiction in New York, not long after the turn of the century, between a feisty, talented maid and a patron, thwarting her budding career, all because he wants her and isn’t good at sharing. That one’s titled, Pearl on Cherry. In January, I’ll be releasing a post-apocalypticscifi story with some religious themes to it. Title’s still in the works on this one.
6. Alpha male or sensitive male?
Alpha male. Love reading about Doms especially. The whole sweet guy next door bores me to tears. They’re too unrealistic to me most of the time. I have an unhealthy obsession where I try to figure out the origins of Doms, and have written about it and continue to. My rudimentary Doms are not quite as in control of themselves—ruled more by passion, but still, they’re kinky as hell, and have that instinct to control and have a woman submit to them fully.
7. Why should readers that haven’t read your work give your book a chance?
So far from each of my pre-readers and ARC reviewers, I’ve been told repeatedly, “I’ve never read anything like this!” So, it’s something new—fresh and different, and very raw in terms of the dialogue and my character Kel. He has no reason to use a filter, act the gentleman or hide what he is from Casey. He has overwhelming needs, and he has to get them met, or he worries he won’t survive, even if that means being unconventional about it like throwing himself in a cage, and getting women to stroke and touch him wherever he needs them to. On the flipside, he’s very accessible, because we get to see his vulnerabilities, and we get to see what turned into the man he is.
8. What annoys you the most about the typical heroine/ female character in a novel and how would you do it differently?
Lately, my problem has been less with the lead female character but more with her dopey, crass bff, acting like a giggly prepubescent school girl, rather than a mature adult. I really don’t get why most of the erotica I’ve read lately have these classless, loudmouth bimbos with no idea how they impact the people around them. How do they land themselves in these stories? I’ve never had a friend that shouts to the world embarrassing things about me without thinking anything about it. So sick of that. And when it’s not a female best friend like this, it’s the gay guy at the office, blurting out all her secrets. Can’t the lead character figure out this person has a big mouth already, shouldn’t be trusted and stop telling them their personal, private affairs? Really drives me crazy!
9. What are you reading right now?
I’ve just started Disciplining the Duchess, and then I plan to either read The Westerfield Affair or two stories by Kitty Thomas, since she’s recently become one of my favorite writers. I’ll probably go in the order I listed since the top 2 have intrigued me for quite some time since they’re historical fiction but with erotic spankings included. C’mon, you know anytime you watch DowntonAbbey, you keep wishing Matthew would spank his wife, Mary…
10. What novel rocked you the hardest during your life?
There have been several over the years, but the last one that did that to me was Tender Mercies by Kitty Thomas. Holy hell was that book amazing. It took me through every emotion so quickly, I could barely breathe. I read it in less 48 hours it was that amazing.
11. What is your favorite movie as of right now?
The Host. I keep watching it over and over. I think Max Irons is beyond hot, and looks like an awesome kisser. I’ve been crushing on him in the White Queen as well (we get to see a lot more skin on him in that one). I also actually thought the movie was better than the book. Imagine my surprise today when a great friend of mine told me my book, Sleeves, is higher on the Amazon scifi romance top 100 list than the book the Host. Sleeves hit #11 today. I about passed out, and I was prepared to blame it on the blazing heat outside if I did faint.
About the Author
Chanse Lowell grew up in the desert southwest and still lives there with her husband, children, and pet cactus. She’s addicted to three things: reading erotica, writing erotica and sandwiches with a side of erotica to aid with digestion. She grew up watching programs with science fiction and historical fiction themes, and is determined she can combine her three favorite genres, creating a new breed of novel with scifi, historical and smut sandwiched in the middle.
The last thing she ever thought she’d do was pursue her dream to be a writer since her family tends to keep her busy. When she was introduced to fan fiction, she realized she wanted to see more science fiction and historical fiction to fill in the gap with lots of naughtiness thrown in, of course. Her true passion is creating her own worlds from scratch, letting her imagination go and take her to another place.
She has two novels coming out soon, Sleeves a science fiction erotica and Knots, a contemporary BDSM that shows the softer, tender side of a Dom/sub relationship. Having recently entered the lifestyle and discovering she’s a submissive herself has opened her eyes to how few stories there are exploring the softer side of the lifestyle. She enjoys chatting online with others with similar kinky interests and has advisers in the lifestyle that help make sure her stories remain true and don’t veer off into outer space. Although aliens probably enjoy kink, too, since they like to dress in rubber fetish-wear while traveling. At least that’s her argument for why her new genre she’s created is valid.
