One of the most elusive smut authors, Sylvain Reynard, has agreed to answer my 5 Awkward Questions.

Why is this even something to get excited about?

Because until very recently, no one even knew he was a “he” and not a “she.” Or maybe that’s just me. But that just goes to show that even though the author of the Gabriel’s Inferno, Gabriel’s Rapture, and the upcoming Gabriel’s Redemption (*sexy teaser here*) is popular on Twitter, penned bestselling books, signed a multi-million dollar book deal, and has a very…uhm…enthusiastic following, no one knows anything about SR. His (I’m assuming) pseudonym is gender neutral, interviews have failed to mention a gender-specific pronoun, and even his publicist, Enn, was vague with me on what was going on in his pants.

Now that I think about it, how awesome would it have been to have had a big-time virtual Gender Reveal Party, complete with blue food-coloring cake and blue balloons popping out of a box?!? It would have been epic.

My point, and I might have one, is that having SR submit to my desires and answer my 5 Awkward Questions is a big deal.

An even bigger deal is that SR has agreed to answer 5+BONUS of YOUR questions next week. If you don’t like my awkward questions, ask your own. I dare you. There might even (by “might” I mean “will be”) be an actual book giveaway, complete with actual SR-signed actual books.


1: What are your 3 all-time favorite smut books/series?

    There was a particularly erotic Star Wars Fan Fiction featuring Leia in her gold bikini …

2: What is it like to be a dude writer in a land of writers with vaginas?

    Where else can you go to meet thousands of intelligent, charming women?

3: What’s your favorite curse word to say? To write?

    Jackass is a favourite. I like writing “Angelfucker.” It has a certain ring to it.

4: Is there a love scene between Gabriel and Julia in either of the two released Gabriel books that’s based on your real life experience? If so, which one?

    Yes. I think you’ll have to guess. But I can tell you there’s an even better one in “Gabriel’s Redemption,” one that required some research. Research is so important to a good novel.

5: Take a photo of yourself right now that includes at least some of your face, and send it to me to include with this post.

BONUS: What are your chances of getting laid tonight?

    Excellent. But I’ll let you know …


OK, so obviously, SR has decided to puss out and keep himself hidden. FINE. Though it would have been fun to see him in nothing but a gold bikini and argyle socks, we can continue to ogle over David Gandy, his muse for Professor Gabriel O. Emerson.

Because, COME ON…

Now that you know a teensy bit more about Sylvain Reynard, let’s get our quarters out, bounce them on David Gandy’s ass, and submit your own questions to ask SR.
