Kylie Gable Interview

Kylie Gable
On this edition of the Erotica Author’s Corner, I’m very excited to have the prolific and talented Kylie Gable. This erotica author has titillated readers with a mix of clever humiliation scenes, smart witty dialogue, memorable characters and of course of tasty girlish outfits for the boys.   

This author has made a name for himself in the erotica literature genre with co author Claudia Acosta who use their blend of writing talents and experiences to entertain and excite fans in the erotic fetish community. 

Gable draws from his college experiences which were later chronicled in Welcome to College, it has recently spawned a sequel due to the popularity of its predecessor. 

His college days have acted as a source of creative fuel for the 100 books he has authored which star strong smart dominant females using a blend of creativity, force and blackmail to entrap and ultimately feminize deserving males.  

The Forced Feminization Illustration Art Blog is very honored to have Kylie Gable as a guest to the Erotica Author’s Corner.  


Welcome to College Ominibus: Welcome to College Books 1 to 10 by [Gable, Kylie]
Welcome to College retells Gable's 
experiences in college. 
I wanted to start off with what was your earliest exposure to this genre?

I went away to college, a five-foot-seven, and 120 pound arrogant misogynist blowhard. By the second day, a group of girls had managed to get compromising pictures of me and blackmail me into doing what they wanted. That was the beginning of my feminization and I wrote about it in my Welcome to College series. By the end, I really did enjoy being dominated, but then graduation came and that's when I learned crossdressing did nothing for me without a dominant woman directing me. That's when I found Fictionmania and Storysite.

That is how I found many my favorite stories! Where there any stories you found to be memorable on those sites?

I like Girlish by Karen Singer. I didn't quite care for the ending, but the first 12 chapters remind me so much of my own experience. There was an old story called Why Me? By Zoned, but I don't remember from where. I really enjoyed Trapped, which I believe was the only story that Simon Mason ever wrote. These weren't the only ones, just the ones that came to mind.

How would Kylie Gable describe herself? In other words, how are you different than from other authors? 

I feel like I'm writing haikus. There are some great writers like Lyka Bloom who write about all sorts of creative and original changes. Even as I close in on one hundred eBooks, all my stories involve dominant woman, reluctant guys, force is used even though sometimes it's used to get a guy to do what he wanted to do all along and just didn't know it. With that basic concept, I've written a Western, pulp superheroes, and some other really original stories built around those seemingly rigid restrictions.

You, Mindi Harris, Claudia Acosta and Alyssa Paige have started a publishing house, Candy Apple Press. Can you tell us a little about it? What sparked its origin?

It's really been a bit slow, but it's a publishing imprint. The idea is that we all love each other's writing and enjoy talking to each other. Mindi has been my editor before she wrote her own stuff. We even worked together writing a story called 32-Flavors round robin. Our stories have certain similarities. We have plots and our stories tend to be realistic rather than magic or science fiction. There were some terrible books coming out on Amazon including a very prolific author who just copied stories from the internet and claimed they were hers. I would like the Crab Apple Press logo to be a sign of quality and to help us market our books.

Tell me about forced feminization. The forced feminization genre has a complex fan base, It is a genre where readers are taken into a situation where a male is coerced/forced/manipulated into wearing female clothing and being put into a traditional submissive role of female by strong and smart females. What is the appeal of it to readers? Did you struggle at first understanding this for your own life? Do you find contradictions with the genre?

Being small with a baby face, my own forced feminization was something way too close to home for me. I really didn't like it at all. Then it grew on me. I discovered forced feminization fiction when I was no longer being feminized and had grown to miss it after college. I really didn't have any trouble understanding the genre at all because of my own experiences. There are contradictions in forced feminization. Some of the sexiest stuff that ever happened to me were things that I didn't want to do. It was being forced to do them that made them hot for me. In other words, I liked doing them because I didn't like doing them. That's the big contradiction with forced feminization right there.


Mean Girls and Mermaids
Mean Girls demonstrates
Kylie's creativity in outfits for 
her male characters.  
In many of your stories the theme of sisterhood plays a central role in the transformation of the male. Its evident in Welcome to College, Mean Girls and Mermaids, Calendar Girl, and Bridled by the Bridesmaids (just to name a few), they act almost like an assembly line of sort through the make over of the guy. Is this a reflection of the bond you share with your fellow writers from Candy Apple Press?

That was my own experience at college. Those girls always worked together to put me at a disadvantage. Mean Girls and Mermaids was based on the experiences of several women that I talked to. I believe women do work together better than men do. Also, people tend to egg each other on in groups. One person might not have the courage to go ahead and feminize somebody, but four people will encourage each other.

Do you have a favorite time era of fashion? Where did you get your fashion inspiration that you use for your stories?

I think contemporary dresses are some of the sexiest, but I do like hosiery and slightly heavier makeup as in the 80s, but with hair from the 90s or 2000s and 80s or 90s heels. I tend to like different things from a lot of eras. A lot of the inspiration comes from what I had to wear during my forced feminization days, but with some modern updates.

Do you have a favorite outfit from a story you wrote?

I don't have a favorite outfit, but I think my best outfits were definitely in Calendar Girl. Because the story centered on pinup photography, I took special care with the outfits.

When you were writing your stories, what were the parts that you looked forward to writing about?

For me it's actually near the beginning of the story. I love that moment when the guy who has thought he was totally in control begins to realize that he's not in charge anymore. I have a cruise story that I probably won't get to write for a few more months, but I keep thinking about how much fun that scene is going to be in that story.

I always have said that you write the best traps for males to fall into, they are laid out so well that they have no choice, but to comply with the plans of the female captors. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what does Kylie Gable do breakthrough that barrier?

Background music helps, writing as fast as I can in twenty-five minute sprints helps, but when it comes the only thing that really works is to just write through it. If the writing is slow as molasses, I'm fine with it as long as the quality isn't suffering.

Is there a favorite moment in your stories that stand out the most to you? One you found memorable?


Sam's New Life: The Complete Sam's Faminization Series
The Sam series offers one of the 
best endings in Gable's collection of 
books.
I think my favorite moments in my books is the ending of Sam's New Life when everything kind of wraps up with a nice bow. It was the best ending that I've ever written and it took people by surprise, but had actually been set up since the first book in the series. People really liked that one and I did too.

I remember that story, I loved how the end came together. It also ended with the strong suggestion that the story would continue at Dupont College. Several of your stories mention or take place at Dupont College. Tell us a little about the location which has become a corner stone in your stories. Do all characters you create exist in the same universe?

I went to a small college in the Midwest. When I wrote my first story, I didn't want people to know exactly which one, so I created fictional DuPont College. It's a lot like where I went to school, but a little bigger with a bigger Greek life. All my characters are in the same universe. I always liked that concept as a superhero fan. Sometimes, characters in one story may appear in another story without anybody even noticing. One of the girls who feminized me became a college professor. I've used her in stories like Calendar Girl, The Boys of Alpha Theta Nu,, and French Exchange as a professor.

Tell us a little about your own fans, how have they reacted to your books? How have your readers affected you and your craft? Do readers get upset over outcomes of your stories?
The Boys of Alpha Theta Nu Collection by [Gable, Kylie, Acosta, Claudia]
A young college freshman gets 
caught in a sinister plot by a
sorority to feminize the boys at 
Dupont College.

This is actually one thing I'd love more of. I crave the feedback of my readers and want them to post more on my blog. I've had great interactions with some readers, but I want more. The one story I remember a few readers getting mad at was Alpha Theta Nu. It was the first story I wrote where you weren't supposed to root for the women doing the feminizing.They were the villains in the story and it bothered a few readers that they couldn't root for them.

When you were writing your stories, did you already have the title in mind? How important is the title to you?

I usually have a title in mind, but that title can get changed a lot. I think my newest book has the worst title I've come up with yet. Thanksgiving Dinner Guest just sounds clunky to me. A good title has to express the tone of the story and tease the plot while helping to sell it. The marketing aspect of titles is something that never occurred to me at first.

When writing erotic fiction do already have an idea of how the story will end? How do you know when it is done?

I sometimes have an ending in mind, but I tend to write by the seat of my pants. My favorite moments are when the characters won't listen to me and they insist on taking the story in a completely different direction. That happened to me in Feminized by a Girl Gang. Marisol, one of the girls in the story was like a force of nature. Anytime she entered a scene, I never knew how the scene would end up. She never took crap from anybody, least of all the writer.

Your sexual experiences in your stories are restrained compared to other authors in the genre, yet they are very erotic and steamy to read. How does sex serve in your stories? Do they serve as a vehicle to help transform the principle male character into his new submissive role?

The story I just finished has some male on male sex and I decided I wanted to write a story that focuses on strapons a lot. I think the reason that I don't have as much sex as some other authors is that my books tend to be more about the humiliation and transformation. For readers, sex can be a turn off. Some of my books have a lot more than others. Alpha Theta Nu has a lot of it.

Do you have any regrets in your stories you wish you would have taken?

When you're doing creative work, you should never have regrets. When he was making Pretty in Pink, John Hughes changed the ending he liked after focus groups saw the original version of the film. Later, he made the film Some Kind of Wonderful, switched the sexes and told the story he wanted to tell in the first movie, which was a much bigger hit. If I don't get to do something in a book that I later reflect on and regret it, I'll just put it in another story. Actually, I've kind of used my writing to explore some of my real world regrets in my series Welcome to the Real World. I know Mindi Harris did the same thing in one of her series. I'd say the only regret I have about my writing has to do with finding the time to write more.

Do you have a favorite story you wrote? And do you have least than favorable story?

My favorite story is probably one of the two Jaguar stories. I know your work on the second one really was amazing and I loved the source material I was parodying. That said, I knew they'd be weak sellers because of the theme (Pulp style vigilante who feminizes her prey). My least favorite is really tough because they're all my children. Maybe, Reprogrammed would be my least favorite. It was a decent book, but it became a much better seller than others that I thought were better. I kind of resented my own book for its success.

What are a few cliches you are most tired of in the genre?

I wouldn't say I'm really tired of cliches so much as there are certain themes that go through stories and I think if you're going there, you need to find something original to say about it. I keep putting off a cheerleader story for that reason. I look at what Ann Michelle is doing with The Making of Danielle or I tried to do with High Heeled Coup as attempts to find something new from old troupes. 

Near 100 books you have written? Where does Kylie Gable go from here? What are her plans?

My one hundredth book has to be something really special, but I don't know what yet. I do want to try some female domination writing without the feminization and there definitely is a part of me that wants to see if I can take the things I've learned writing erotica and write a detective story or a thriller. I think that's why I keep coming back to The Jaguar.

A Hollywood film studio calls, they want to get in on the underground and kinky genre of feminization. They want to make a film based on one of your books. Which one would you suggest? If it is successful a series of films would eventually follow. Which ones you like to see come to life?

Welcome to College would make a great film and it could have the based on a true story tag. I think French Exchange could certainly make a good book if you want a stand alone title. I also think it has a bit more humor than some of my books. Finally, I'd like to see the Alpha Theta Nu series as a Netflix type show.

Thank you Kylie for being a guest on the Erotica Author's Corner, this has been a true pleasure

  2. Very Interesting Interview, one of the most interesting on your site. He was really a victim of forced feminization as a child, then missed it when he went to college. But he didnt want any of it? Wonder what happened but we will probably never know and he doesnt want us all to know.
    And most of his readers liked to root for the women in his story because they are the ones to get justice against hateful misogynistic men. But in one of his stories where the feminizers are the villan hurting an innocent man, the readers were confused and didnt know who to root for but some still rooted for the women.

    1. Ryan, I somehow avoided forced feminization growing up, though my sister would tease me all the time. During college was where I got my introduction thanks to some girls at my school. I didn't like it at first, but grew to enjoy the experience. My Welcome to College book is as close to the whole story as you'll find, but I did move some events around a little and change a few things for dramatic purposes---sort of like the way they do with movies based on a true story.

  4. Well done interview! Pretty close to the conversation I'd've liked to have with Kylie given the opportunity. Suggestion for a future interview: Sara Desmarais. With Kylie, I think she's one of the best authors in the genre for exploring what goes on in the psyche of a man who craves to be humiliated by feminization.

    1. Thanks Cassandra for reading the interview and taking the time to comment. I have read a few of Sara Demarais stories in fact I even featured her Photo Shoot story as a Pick of The Week. She would be great guest to interview about her craft. Thank you for commenting.
