Legacy by Shakir Rashaan

Shakir Rashaan currently lives in suburban Atlanta with his wife and two children. Rashaan's catalog includes the series Chronicles of the Nubian Underworld and the upcoming Kink, P.I., and current projects being developed under the pen name Curtis Alexander Hamilton.

A tale unlike anything else, this second episode in the Chronicles of the Nubian Underworld series continues the erotically charged journey inside Atlanta's African-American Fetish/BDSM community.

"In order to be great, you have to leave your mark. Are you ready to leave your mark?"

After returning from Dubai, a power shift occurs within the Atlanta Fetish community as the "torch" is passed on from Amenhotep to Ramesses and Neferterri. The Palace is being transformed in Ramesses' image, and the new "power couple" is adjusting to life in the spotlight and the benefits -- and headaches -- that come with it.

But as Ramesses puts the finishing touches on establishing the balance of power, Amenhotep has tasked him with a daunting undertaking -- one that will test his will and re-forge a bond that was once broken, cementing his legacy within the sacred "society."

Exotic, decadent, and written by a true insider, Legacy takes you deeper into the Atlanta Fetish/BDSM community, twisting more surprises and revelations that are sure to take your breath away.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
A) This particular series was inspired by my lack of seeing black characters who are like me, into BDSM practices and kinky encounters. I wanted to show that “we do this kinky stuff, too,” and I enjoyed bringing my characters to life and to the market. It has helped a lot of black people search out the real-time BDSM community, and they’ve empowered themselves to enjoy their kinks and fetishes, and explore the world of BDSM.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
A) The Awakening took me about six months to write, while Legacy probably took around six weeks…I got better at writing every day by the time I started writing Legacy :D.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
A) I enjoy the creative process: creating the characters, world-building, figuring out what drama I want to create and how to get my characters out of it.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
A) My least favorite thing? Well, I’m not fond of the editing part of the writing process LOL! It’s a necessary evil, but to kill babies and scenes is a heart-wrenching process that I don’t enjoy.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
A) That’s easy: Michael Jordan. To be the best player on the planet and transcend so many different areas and industries, yeah, I would love to know what that feels like, being a former basketball player myself.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
A) A week-old bottle of wine. Everything else gets demolished…I have teenagers LOL!

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
A) Ummm… how much room do I have? LOL! In the immediate future, LEGACY has already rolled out this month (June 10th) and TEMPEST will be out in December (December 9th). After that, we get ready for my erotic mystery series, Kink, P.I., with OBSESSION, DECEPTION, and RECKONING, coming in 2015 & 2016. The rest of my to-do list is liable to make a normal reader salivate, but make an author scratch their head and say, “He doing too much!” LOL! But, sufficed to say, I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 projects that are being conceived and ready to write and pitch to my current publisher and new publishers, with plenty of more material to spare.
