I feel this may be a long post but bear with me and I’ve got a little surprise at the end. I hope it is worth your time. I haven’t really spoke much about why I write or anything to do with the themes of which my books fall under. I guess in this post I’m going to rectify that.
So over the last few months I’ve had several releases out with several publishers. The main bulk of my work has been published through Evernight Publishing. I know that the main themes of my stories fall under the Rubenesque and May/December romance categories. My work is always erotic and will always have a romantic element in the story. That is who I am, an erotic romance author. I’m a full-figured woman myself and find writing about the fuller woman comes naturally to me as I am one. I suppose I could write about slimmer women but there are many authors who write about the slimmer type. A full-figured woman is what I know love to create on the page.
May / December themes is simply down to the fact that I like the older man. These stories are for my characters to overcome the hurdle of an age difference. I love reading about this type of boundary within a relationship and exploring it myself has been a dream come true.
I love possessive alpha males who are not afraid to go after what they want. I find reading and writing these types of males fun and exciting.
I know that several of my releases has featured virgin heroines as my main characters but that is how they feel to me. I like to get to know my characters before I begin writing. I understand that not every woman is a virgin when they find their Mr. Right, these are simply how the characters come to me when I write. Not all my work will feature a virgin heroine, only the ones who I feel need to be this way in my story.
To be honest the only reason I write is because I love doing it. This is no great secret to most people. We writers love to create characters and worlds for others to enjoy. For the longest time it has been a dream of mine to have my work published. What writer hasn’t? When I got that first acceptance I was in absolute shock, it didn’t sink in for a good long while. I’m now a published writer and feel I can explore so many different genres with my work. My imagination has never been limited. There will be pieces I intend to write that do not feature virgin heroines but mature women who know what they want.
When I’m writing I don’t like feeling held in place with boundaries. By writing erotic romance I feel I have way more freedom to explore so much more. I can’t wait to become a full-time writer so that I can share more of my work with you guys.
I write because I love exploring characters and giving myself over to the world of fantasy. To me books have always been my escapism. I don’t like to read realistic books where it gets to the nitty gritty of the world we live in. I have the news and the world outside my front door for that. I love reading the type of books where for several hours or minutes I’m transported to an entirely different world where I can read what happens to other people.
When it comes down to it, I write because it is a passion of mine and dream come true to be published. I’m simply a person who is living her dream.
Thank you for listening to me talk. I know it is quite a long post.
Now, for your surprise. I’ve had two releases in the last couple of weeks and I’m going to do a giveaway for both of them.
