Title: The Luckiest Master
Author: Sean Michael
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: LC Chase
Genre: BDSM, Contemporary, Gay, Gay Romance
Release Date: 08/22/2016
When Master Damien Richardson (Day to his friends) takes over the front desk manager job at the Iron Eagle Gym, he knows he’s going to need an assistant. But finding the right person for the job is harder than he thought it would be. When he meets Saw, he thinks he’s found the solution to all his problems, and maybe something more.
Sawyer Whitehead lost his master to a tragic car accident some years ago, and since then one opportunity after another has gone sour on him. Thoroughly convinced he’s cursed and a jinx to everything and everyone he touches, he refuses to officially become Day’s assistant because he knows that as soon as he does, something terrible will happen. He’s even more determined not to get involved with Day, despite his attraction, because it would kill him to be responsible for tragedy befalling the lovely man.
Day must convince Saw that he’s not cursed and that together, they can face any challenge that comes their way—in both their professional and personal partnerships.
Recent Release Spotlight with Sean Michael
We are here today to talk about The Luckiest Master. What can you tell us about it?
This is the next story in the Iron Eagle Gym series. It features a brand new couple. Some of the characters from the first book make cameo appearances in this one, but it really is the story of Master Day and Saw.
Please tell us more about our main characters.
Master Day is the new front desk manager. He’s a solid Dom, who is currently single.
Saw is a sub who believes that he’s bad luck. Like a business burns down just because he works there kind of bad luck. He’s really into being of service and though he refuses to date Master Day because he doesn’t want anything bad to happen, he still bakes him goodies, brings him coffee and meals, and generally takes care of Master Day as best he can.
What do you want to tell those who may be new to the series?
It’s a BDSM series. Most of the stories are stand-alone with cameos from the characters from other books. And at least one of the main characters from the books either are members of or work at the Iron Eagle Gym.
What about The Luckiest Master makes you the proudest?
Hmmm. I’m not sure how to answer this one. I’m very happy with how the book turned out.
What is next for these characters? Is there more to this series? If so who will we hear from next?
Day and Saw have cameo roles in the next book in the series. The Closet Boy features a member and one of the janitors who works at the gym. Way is newly out and has had to leave his very Christian family because he won’t stop liking men. He has no money and gym member Neal finds out that Way has been living in one of the closets in the gym between his shifts as janitor.
If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring writers, what would it be?
Write every single day – whether you feel like it or not.
What is the nicest thing a reader has said to you in a review, email, in person, or on social media?
I’ve had several readers write to tell me that my stories got them through the hardest times of their lives. I love that my books can do that, that they are people’s comfort reads.
What’s the most difficult thing about writing a good short story?
Fleshing out your characters so that the reader cares about them in the limited time you have to devote to them
Do you take a break from a first draft to get distance from it, or dive right into editing, or edit heavily as you write?
If I have the time I like to get at least a week of distance from it, but often times I need to dive right into editing after writing because of deadlines. I don’t edit as I go – I always write straight through and edit after.
How will the world end?
If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
Teleportation, because then I could go to visit my friends all over the world and see all the places I’d love to visit if time and money were no object.
If you had to be a cat, dog, or a rat, which would you choose and why?
I would be a dog because they have so much love in their hearts.
Do you remember a character talking about a particular food and it made you want to eat it RIGHTNOW? and if yes, what was it?
LOL! This is funny because just today my guys ordered a chocolate mousse cake and I went out and bought a Larocca Truffle Cake – which is a chocolate mousse cake – because I had a sudden deed craving that I just couldn’t shake. It was delicious.
What are you reading right now and what is next on your to-be-read list?
My TBR pile is vast, so I’m spoiled for choice as to what I get to read next. As soon as I’ve finished with this latest round of edits! (which is why I don’t currently have a book on the currently reading list)
