Okay everyone knows that recently I have completely fallen in love with The DOM Wars Series by Lucian Bane. I am sure a lot of writers, and fans alike have already come across something about Lucian, and this enticing series. He recently released the fourth part, and I was able to get in just a few questions while he is busying crafting away his latest work. Lucian is an amazing writer who openly advocates against violence against women, and teaching people the beauty, and intimacy that is found in BDSM relationships. Next month he is hosting an abuse awareness event, and I felt that because of his passion, convictions, and talent he was a must-have to interview. I would also like to thank Lucian’s lovely personal assistant, Dana Desire, for all her help in making this happen. It is greatly appreciated.

LB: I am Lucian Bane, Ineffable Dom.
SMJ: What are your ambitions for your writing career?
LB: If I said I didn’t want to be a NY times bestselling

to be a Dom.
SMJ: Which writers inspire you?
LB: J.R.R Tolkien.
SMJ: Tell us a little bit about what have you written?

vessel for me to teach people everything I have learned in this lifestyle.

SMJ: You write erotica in the BDSM genre, but will you ever write anything else? Or is erotica your niche?
LB: I am usually writing journalistic pieces, but I have been known to write some poetry when I need to
SMJ: Did it seem awkward to create a BDSM series being male, in a female dominated genre, and market?
LB: No love, I write what I feel and I don’t believe me being male has anything to do with it. Yes it is primarily
a female dominated genre but if my books didn’t have a leg to stand on then my sex couldn’t keep me
SMJ: When did you decide to become a writer?
LB: I’m a writer by trade, but recently decided to add fiction to

SMJ: How do you handle Writer’s Block?

challenge. I haven’t really had it yet, I don’t think. But I’ve heard it’s a harrowing thing to have.
SMJ: Who is your favorite erotica writer/BDSM author?
LB: Lucian Bane.
SMJ: Who does your cover art, and teasers?

team does most of the teasers you see out there.
SMJ: Your newest book has gotten so many five star reviews, but have you ever had any negative ones? If
so how does that affect your writing?

writing style will not be for everyone. If there is a major complaint I may look and make an adjustment
but for the most part my writing will remain the same.

whatever you want in the lifestyle (within the law, lol) and don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.
SMJ: Must-have supplies for the zombie apocalypse?
SMJ: Beauty, or Brains in a woman?
LB: Neither. It’s all about her heart for me.
SMJ: Last, but not least does the enchanting Lucian Bane prefer the sensuous submissive, or the naughty bad
girl? Or both?
LB: Definitely both and especially anything in between. I find a woman’s uniqueness to be the
