Promo Monday with the Greatest Poet Alive!

That's right, we have a poet in our midst today! Greatest Poet Alive, and the scintillating book, Revenge of the Orgasm. Sounds titillating! 

As you are driving, your body involuntarily jumps. Sweat begins on your forehead and appears on your body, even though it is the middle of Winter. Inside of your left thigh, there is a tapping that is not harmful but noticeable. And you begin to wonder if sanity has departed or control of your motor skills is no longer your own. Then, the epiphany becomes clear. This is Revenge of the Orgasm.

Excerpt: Extreme   
Dark, lurid thoughts invade my mind; it is surprising I think of these things. Dreary day outside of this Wisconsin Dells' cabin, your body stretched in four different directions, ass naked you sway to and fro in this erotic swing. Painful ecstasy comes from moans as tighter it closes the nipple rings. Restrained legs perform grasshopper movements from the pleasure the agony brings.  
Hands become a paddle and a whip respectively reddening your backside repetitiously.  Gag in your mouth, blindfolded but still you scream out and stare directly at me. Hot candle wax, melting ice, and sweet honey form outer layers of your skin. Fully drenched and dripping your chasm, so I push swing forward, catch it when it comes backwards, then roughly I enter in.  
Remove gag but breaths still find difficulty escaping. Belt tightens around your neck, as the camera continues taping. Lovemaking of a gentle sort was not your wish; you demanded more of an extreme. The mask lowers over your face; now only you can hear your screams.

And now, let's get to know GPA a little more.

~So tell me, what specifically do you write? 
I write Poetry, Motion Picture Poetry. I tend to lean towards a narrative style as opposed to just abstract.. Sometimes the poems are grimey, while others times the can be either romantic or sensual. ~Being a poet, do you only write poetry?  
Currently, I do write Poetry, but I have delved lately into writing short stories. And I am also working on a novel. ~What would you say are some key differences between writing poetry and writing prose? That is a great question. Poetry, even though there are forms for it, allows for more expression of emotions than writing prose does. In prose, the feelings are told through characters, which is being looked at from a third person perspective, while poetry provides a direct link of emotions from and of the poet. Also, prose takes a lot longer to develop, where a poem can only use and need a few lines to express a point or theme. ~Is writing poetry a challenge, or do you just have to be ‘the right person’? 
I am the “right person” for Poetry. Whether writing or reciting, it is me that was chosen to do this. Poetry isn’t a challenge except to stretch it places it hasn’t gone. ~What type of writer are you; do you plot it out or, like myself, are you a pantser? Is being a pantser even an option for being a poet? 
Only when I am in the midst of writing a book or chapters in a book do I plot out anything; otherwise, I just fly with what pops in my head. ~Why did you first take up the pen, so to speak? 
God spoke to me in my ear and said it was time. Then, He told me I was to be the best ever. ~Did you always know you would write? Or are you a newbie to the craft? 
I always wrote but never knew it would reach these heights. I am new to performing. ~You write specific genres; do you find them enjoyable to read as well? 
I don’t like reading this new form of erotic poetry. I don’t. It isn’t very engaging. I enjoy reading fiction and motivational books. Oh, comic books and graphic novels are my favorites to read as well. ~As a writer, who is an idol of yours?
Ed McBain, Langston Hughes, Carl Weber, and James Patterson are writing idols of mine. They are the combination of brevity and detailed stroytelling. ~Is it the same person for you as a reader? 
They are the same when I read as well. ~Are the any shoutouts you’d like to make? 
Shouts out to all members of #teamGPA, and that includes thanks to God, my family, my supporters, and the other Poet on this team, Kottyn Cambell, Queen of Seduction.

Well thank you, GPA, for being here today. It's always nice to do something a little different!
