Yes, my guy especially enjoys that part of my writing. : )
For my fellow authors, I would say that they have to do what is right for their careers. If they think they need an agent or if they would like an agent then I think they should look for an agent. I don’t have one, so agents, please do contact me.
5. Do you find people look at you in a different light when they find out what type of books you write?
So far I’ve been very fortunate in that the people I have elected to tell don’t judge me. I’m very proud of my work. I enjoy my stories. I’m inspired to write more. In fact, I’m currently working on two new manuscripts. However, erotica isn’t the only thing I write. It is the only thing I write under my pen name.
6. What inspired you to write?
People, place, news, views, thoughts, songs. My muse dances to many drummers.
7. How many unpublished books do you have lurking under your bed?
None. If a story doesn’t work. I save the best of it and weave it into a story that does.
8. How did you find the publisher?
Fate, I was at the right place at the right time. That said I wasn’t waiting for someone to find me. I was on the road with my thumb out. When that didn’t work I started jumping up and down, waving my arms wildly.
9. How do your juggle a writing schedule?
I’m a fly by the sit of jeans chick. That said there are somethings I must do daily. Writing, reading, are on the top of the list — above eating. Maybe not that wise. See my name next to a sign that says — not a good example.
10. What’s the best/worst part of being a writer?
I’m having a very good day so I can only focus on the plus — having others read my work, having others react to my work. I don’t really mind if they react positively or negatively as long as they react.
11. What is the most productive time of the day for you to write?
Morning. I’ve been known to wake up at 3 am with a story demanding to be written. The rest of the day I walk around like a zombie.
12. Do you start your projects writing with paper and pen or is it all on the computer
Varies, I’ll write in sand if need be.
13. What/who do you draw inspiration from?
I draw inspiration from my need to celebrate that which is feminine — our power, our lives, our passion.
14. Do you set yourself goals when you sit down to write such as word count?
My goal is to write daily. The amount is governed by my muse.
15. How do/did you deal with rejection letters?
I eat lots of chocolate. After I’ve swallowed in my sorrow for a suitable amount of time, I go to my local bookstore. I look at book after book. I pause to consider, many fine authors wrote these books. Many worthy authors wrote these books. All of these books deserve to be read. They all deserve an audience. I need to buy them.
Do I buy them all?
Can I buy them all?
Then, I think, this is what being an book publisher must be like.
16. Do you have a critique partner?
Yes, thank goodness. I also have a beta reader and proofreader. I won’t leave home without them.
