Meanwhile back in the real world…

When I first started writing for publication I spent every spare hour tapping away at the keyboard blissfully unaware there would ever be anything else involved. All those boring bits, edits, covers, formatting,and marketing were handled by expert specialists. This was actually fairly true for my early works. Cover art with no relationship to the story, glaring text errors–all mine :blush: and formatting that jarred the reader’s tender eyes left me weeping in frustration, desperate for a chance to improve the publication process.

Now I spend hours designing covers, revising, editing, proofing, formatting, and marketing those same books. To my amazement, none of these tasks are a bit boring. Every pass with a manuscript improves the story and that’s still my driving force–a passion to give readers the best story I possibly can.

Sneak Peek at Joon’s Tempation

July 15, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

Joon 500x750
At the entrance a tall, lean, lock-jawed attendant scowled from his booth. “Identification.” Filthy Earth whore.

Joon controlled an urge to cringe at his crude thoughts. The same man had directed Joon’s guards several times each week the government was in session for more than a year. His thoughts left no doubt he recognized her. She produced her ambassador badge for his scan.

Dirty slut. He pretended to consult a display. “There are no slots available. Try the visitor area.”

Five open slips lay in her line of sight. She considered changing his mind, but rejected the tempting idea. She still had plenty of time to rendezvous with her guards. The heady opportunity for few more minutes alone softened the gatekeeper’s blatant disrespect. She checked behind her and reversed away from the entrance.

A sleek, iridescent purple skimmer swooped in to fill the space she had vacated. She recognized Cornish, a newly appointed representative from the south quadrant. The attendant waved the junior councilman ahead without so much as a glance at his shiny new identification badge.

Temper raced through her veins, heating her cheeks, she popped the canopy, hoping for the relief of cool breeze. Determined not to let these Goddess blighted males provoke her, she breathed through her unseemly anger as she entered the underground public docks.

Distracted by the inner turmoil she missed the group of young men in short pants and loose shirts moving closer until they’d surrounded her tethered skimmer. The dimly lit docking area was deserted. They had taken positions on either side of the slim vessel blocking her exit.

She was exposed and trapped, but hardly helpless.

The tallest snatched her ignition fob then folded his arms emphasizing budding biceps and leered. She’s an earth slut, has to be. What’s she doing here?

A gangly youth across from him with red hair and pale blue eyes squinted at her chest. She’s so scrawny, but I bet her sex is soft.

Another boy, a blond, with a fish tattoo on his forearm and too many square teeth, slammed her side hatch shut when she tried to release it. “Not so fast, bitch.” She’s going to feel way better than my fist. I want to strip her stupid clothes and pound into her until she screams.

The fourth, a stocky child with straight black hair, stared at her, palming his erect shaft. She wants my cock. Don’t worry baby I’m going to fuck every hole you’ve got.

Shock from their graphic thoughts slowed her reaction time. A glance at the bulge tenting the blond’s baggy pants snapped her back to reality. These boys intend to rape and quite possibly kill me.

Joon’s Temptation

July 1, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

coming soon

I’ve been working on Joon’s adventure off and on since last year. It’s the off and on again part that’s the problem. :blush: The upside is there should be a period of fairly close releases down the road.

So far I’ve added fifteen thousand new words to the original text and replaced easily that many. :blink: I’m finally closing in on the last chapters. The new and improved Joon’s Temptation should be released later this month. I’m excited to almost have one of my favorite titles available again. Here’s the short version of the story:

Joon is banished from New Eden for practicing witchcraft. Two fierce warriors are assigned to ensure she returns to Earth. Before they make the first jump to sub-space they’re captured by Baldoreans and taken to enormous space station, where the enemy is gearing up for a devastating surprise attack.

The trio’s first objective is to escape and warn their home planet. The only hope for accomplishing this impossible task is to combine their talents. As they work together the three-way attraction strengthens. Courage, sacrifice, and a new mating bond won’t erase the charges against Joon. Their love is still forbidden.

Writing adventures

I started writing Joon’s Temptation in 2008. The original story published in June 2009. Since then I’ve learned a few things about writing, which benefits the all new version coming soon, but also makes the revision more a total rewrite. The characters and basic plot remain the same, just the prose is being replaced. :lol:

Coming Soon-ish

June 24, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday


For all you paper and ink fans, Warriors’ Woman and Warriors’ Wife are scheduled to release in print January 15, 2015. My guess is they’ll be combined in a single author anthology.

I need to get back to work on the next story in the series. :blush:

Do You Interact With Erotica The Same Way You Do With Porn?

June 20, 2014 | Fan Friday

Playful hand
Today’s editorial is courtesy of and their talented writer: Helen Mauritz. Enjoy!

I’ve been thinking a lot about “idle erotic reading,” which, to me, brings up the question: How is our interaction with romantic and erotic works of literature determined by our activity and what we are or aren’t doing while reading the text? For instance, is it more stimulating to read sexy stories while sitting at the kitchen table or riding a train? Do you get more out of erotica by reading it to yourself, silently; or when you’re dramatizing a scene from the book with your partner(s)? Do you masturbate or have sex while reading erotica? Do any of these activities give you a more spiritual connection with the characters or scenes, or do you just internalize the material and use it later?

Think about some of these questions and then compare your relationship with erotic romance books to your relationship to adult movies. Maybe it’s always been like this, but these days, it’s difficult to imagine someone watching an adult movie for any reason outside of physical stimulation. Porn movies are tools that mostly act as surrogate sex partners. If they aren’t satisfying the user in a sensual (and ultimately orgasmic) way, the films aren’t that useful. Erotica, on the other hand has limitless potential. Erotica author Nola Sarina sums it up perfectly in a recent USA Today column entitled, “It’s all in your head: The beauty of written eroticism.” She writes, “I can fully immerse in the experience of the erotic encounter without having to ignore visual factors (or generic movie sets) that do not add to the experience. There’s no distraction in erotic fiction, no conflict of the senses.”

Now, I’m not saying that erotica will ever be as be as popular or economically viable as the porn industry, but it’s gained popularity in plenty of mainstream locations. 50 Shades of Grey’s success will hit the big screen in 2015 while other writers have taken on that series’ tradition. At least, that’s how Adam & Eve(aptly, might I add) describes the work of author Lisa Renee Jones, including her If I Were You novel, which apparently tackles the “dark side of sex “. As we seen erotica popping up in more places, it will open up the possibilities for how erotica can be used to enliven and enhance our interaction with it. In London, erotica book clubs have existed for a couple of years, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw sex clubs pop up based on erotica novels.

Erotica, itself, is anything but idle. It’s a fast-moving vehicle that will make more and more ground as the porn industry becomes more and more regulated. So, now would be a good time for you to get more familiar with the industry and figure out just how you want to interact with it. Sitting in one place and reading a romance novel is fine if you’re in a library or a public space, but in the privacy of your home or someone else’s, explore your own world of sensuality with each turning page.

This is a guest post by Helen Mauritz. In addition to writing and reading about erotica, Helen is passionate about sci-fi films and how they explore sexuality.
