Golden Apples by Rachel Randall

What do you tell your family and friends? Or do you?


I tell them I write erotic romance and then we leave it at that. Though many of my friends do want to read my stories. My day-job colleagues know I write, though I keep it fairly mysterious; a shame, as I think many of them would be really quite interested! I've had disasters in my past when I was sneaking the work photocopier for a manuscript and accidentally copied a sex scene onto the back of an official government document that I nearly gave to my boss. OOPS. Although, really, in an ideal world that sounds like a recipe for an office-kink story, doesn't it? ;)


Do you read erotic fiction on a regular basis and what do you like/love about it?


I don't actually read very much erotic fiction, but when I do, I love anthologies like Seducing the Myth, because they give me a chance to sample all these different writers and writing styles. When I find one I like, I'll definitely checkout the backlist. What I love about reading romance is the intensity of emotions -- and there's nothing better than really great erotic romance for a concentrated hit!

In a Dry and Dusty Land by Lydia Nyx
 

How did you get started writing erotic romance?

I think I was always predisposed to writing about sex, though in my teens I mostly wrote horror. My friends might tease me I'm a smut peddler, but the world sure does love smut! I've always enjoyed writing about sex and I think I'm pretty good at it.

What are you working on now?

 I'm writing the sequel to my urban fantasy debut, Black Shore of the White City. It's supposed to be a trilogy, but we'll see if I can stop at three! I'm also going to answer some more of Storm Moon Press' anthology calls, because they're always so interesting!

Lydia Nyx, erotica and romance differently twisted, for your pleasure: http://www.lydianyx.com


In The Springtime by Elizabeth Thorne

I've been writing erotic romance since graduate school. I'd be cooped up in the lab in the middle of the night, killing time between experiments, and since I loved reading erotica, I thought I'd try writing it. It's such a wonderful method of escape for me, both as a writer and a reader. Right now, I'm working on several short stories for anthology submissions, but I'm also working on a historical novel that, while technically an erotic romance, is really about trying to upset traditional notions of gender and what women can and cannot do.




 


Blooming April's Flower by Jillian Murphy
I started erotica because a writing friend encouraged me. I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave it a shot. I'm so glad I did.

My husband and a couple of close friends know I write erotica. All the others think I work strictly on children's books.
 

 
 

God of Pleasure by J. C. Martin

God of Pleasure is my first ever erotica piece! :) Although I have read erotic romance, I've never attempted writing it, but since I enjoy mythology, Lucy's anthology prompt (mythology-themed erotica) really inspired me to give it a go! Sex, gods and magical beings...erotica can't get any more exotic than that!

I'm just completing edits of a crime novel, Oracle, which has already entered the querying stage (fingers crossed!). The next novel I'm working on (previously titled Sound of the Underground, but now tentatively renamed Labyrinth) will feature the same detective. I'm also working on a collection of short stories/novelettes themed around the horror of seemingly everyday objects.








Down by the Pool by Lucy Felthouse

Where do you get your ideas? Can you give us an example?

I get my ideas from all kinds of places. It can be a book, a TV show, a person, an event, a name... anything. Literally anything is ripe for my imagination to twist into a story.

A good (and very relevant) example is how I came up with my story for Seducing the Myth. I love spending time outdoors, and particularly enjoy the Peak District, it's my local stomping ground. I'm also passionate about local history and folklore and when I picked up a book on myths and legends in the Peak District, one in particular jumped out at me - about a mermaid inhabiting a pond high on the moors in the Peak District. I simply had to visit the place, and it really sparked my imagination. It's so lonely and eerie, yet beautiful. I didn't do anything about it, however, until I started putting together my call for submissions for Seducing the Myth. It was then that I decided what my story was going to be about - that lonely pool and the mermaid that's reputed to live within its depths. If you want to find out more... well, you'll just have to read the anthology, won't you? ;)

What are you working on now?

I'm working on a novella for one of the publishers I write for. It's going to be the longest piece I've ever written (that currently stands at just 12k! I started as a short story writer and am working hard to branch out into longer works) and I'm both excited and nervous. It's an erotic romance tentatively titled Off the Shelf. Fingers crossed it'll be accepted - if so, expect to see it appearing in spring next year!

Lilith: In Her Garden by Louisa Bacio

Where do you get your ideas? Can you give us an example?

My story ideas come from real life, dreams, fantasies … It all depends upon what I’m doing. I love watching people, and as a writer – and reporter – I’m pretty observant. Sometimes I’ll overhear a bit of conversation that’s out of context and it’ll trigger a story idea.

When it comes to mythology, as in the Seducing the Myth anthology, I have a master’s degree in English. The world of the gods, and the various stories on how things work within our universe, fascinate me.

What are you working on now?

The paranormal world within New Orleans once again captured my muse. I’m in the midst of the sequel to The Vampire, the Witch & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Threesome. Titled Chains of Silver, the book focuses on the werewolf’s sister Silver, who was adopted at birth, and we also continue with the storyline of our original threesome. 




  

Maiden's Grail by Bronwyn Green

I got started writing erotic romance after attempting to break into the
traditional romance market. I kept getting lovely rejection letters that
asked me to tone down the heat level and resubmit. I didn't have a lot of
luck toning it down and a friend dared me to turn up the heat and write
erotic romance. I did that and I haven't looked back.

Right now, I'm working on several shifter stories, a holiday story and in
a total departure for me, a YA novel.

Mushroom Hunting with Eros by Kay Dee Royal

How did you get started writing erotic romance?

It started writing as a career move, away from the corporate world. I signed up for a two-year course writing children’s literature – and have written three books under a different name. None published at this time.

I was familiar with romance, because I wrote it for fun since high school. But, I never pursued it as a career. Then I saw this add for a ghost writer – a fledgling erotica author needed some help. I did the job, which was writing the love/sex scenes…and man, I loved it. The words flowed from my fingertips and I fell in love with the genre.

It took me a bit to pack up my children’s writing and begin over again in a new niche, but I’ve not regretted doing it. I hooked up with an awesome e-publishing house, Muse It Hot Publishing, and have a number of books in different phases of getting published.

It’s such a kick to love what you do, and do what you love.





A Temple for Hera by Maxine Marsh

Where do you get your ideas? Can you give us an example?

My ideas can come from anywhere, really. I've come up with concepts seemingly out of thin air, or I've read titillating myths that get my gears grinding. I have a love for old horror and tend to dip into those waters when I want to write something on the darker side. For me "A Temple for Hera" story in Seducing The Myth, I found an old tale about a queen who became ill after ignoring Hera's request. It has an interesting twist toward the end.

Do you read erotic fiction on a regular basis and what do you like/love about it?

I do, and I truly believe every writer MUST read within their genre (and outside of it) to maintain the inspiration and to be able to connect with what readers want to read! If I have any trouble at all getting writing done, I sit down with a hot story or novel and it never fails to get the juices flowing, so to speak. I love erotica for the same reasons everyone else does: it's stimulating and inspiring. Sex is just as much a part of life as any other activity, and can be such a great way to define characters.

What are you working on now?

Well, I've just finished edits for a dark, erotic short that is being release by Noble Publishing in November, and I'm very proud of it. I also have a longish story in an anthology from Freaky Fountain Press coming out at the end of the month. I'm always working on unique ideas for calls, and I've got a few novellas in the works, my favorite of which is an erotic horror story that is shaping up beautifully. Hopefully I'll be able to announce where it will be published soon, so check out www.maxinemarsh.net for updates!



Beltane Fire by Hawthorn

How did you get started writing erotic romance?


Totally by accident and out of the blue. I wrote and posted a short story at Literotica.com about four years ago, but then I completely forgot about erotica and concentrated on other things (fantasy novels, other short stories, my freelance editing business). Then last year I happened to find Lucy Felthouse's call for submissions for her Uniform Behaviour anthology, and I thought - hell, why not? Long story short, I wrote a story called Venus and it was accepted for publication, and then I followed up with Beltane Fire in Lucy's new Seducing the Myth antho. In between I've written other things, both erotica and more family-friendly fantasy fiction, and had one short story accepted elsewhere (others in the pipeline).

What do you tell your family and friends? Or do you?
My partner knows about the erotica I've written, as do a couple of close friends, but no one else - I write under a pseudonym, partly because I work in education and also because I run a freelance editing business under my given name. Also, I have young children, and I think I'd rather not run the risk of them (or their friends) stumbling across any of my steamier stories on the internet!

Do you like shorts or full length books and why?

In general, I prefer to write novels or novellas - I think any good story must be character-driven, and I like having the freedom to stretch my narrative wings and explore different aspects of characters' emotions and motivations. That said, to date I've written four erotic short stories, and I quite like the emotional charge and intensity of creating those flashbulb scenarios. (I do always want to find out what happens to the characters next, though - maybe I should try an erotic novel.)

Apsara by Burton Lawrence

How did you get started writing erotic romance?

 I got this idea about a couple going to a Hedonism-type resort and decided to write it. From there, that got me interested in erotic fiction. I googled erotic fiction and found Literotica, from there, I was hooked.


Where do you get your ideas? Can you give us an example?

I love nothing more than solving a problem. For example, I've taken 1st and 2nd in Literotica's "Nude Day" contest in different years. For me, the challenge of that contest is not to build nudity into the story without sexualizing nudity because the point of National Nude Day is to celebrate the human body...but not necessarily objectify it. That's one example. Interestingly, by trying to fit the theme but also not be predictable, my tales ended up being that much more creative. By the way, my Literotica handle is ShyChiWriter.


What do you tell your family and friends? Or do you?


Ha! I've won three online contests and had my work included in several collections now. The only person who knows is my wife. My free copies of the collections I've been included in sit hidden high on a shelf in our bedroom - broken out only for special occasions ; ) I also write professionally in the worlds of theatre and 'straight' fiction, so I can at least brag in those arenas. I think that's actually one reason I don't crow too much about my erotic endeavors, because a lot of my other writing is in the family arena.


Do you read erotic fiction on a regular basis and what do you like/love about it?


I'd say my erotic reading, like my other reading, waxes and wanes with the cycles of the moon - or something. In truth, though, it all comes down to story for me - whether I'm writing or reading. So, like any fiction, I like good erotic fiction with strong characters and good story elements. I certainly enjoy the added rush one can get from reading erotic fiction, but I like the eroticism to be woven into the fabric of a good story.

What are you working on now?

I am actually currently polishing up a YA Novel (obviously non-erotic) that's been sitting in my electronic drawer waiting for revisions. I'm also in the process of cleaning up several of my erotic science fiction stories and I'm going to Kindle them up into a collection.

Do you like shorts or full length books and why?

In a perfect world, I love full-length books. However, between a full-time job, kids, and my own writing - I rarely have the time to curl up and read a full book any more. So, for the past few years I've really been drawn to short-story collections because I know I can sit down and finish at least one story (like, for example, in Seducing the Myth).


Djinn and Tonic by Lexie Bay

Where do you get your ideas? Can you give us an example?

I get my ideas from the people I meet every day.  I love to imagine what might happen between people given the opportunity and then I translate that onto the page.  I do spend a huge amount of time daydreaming and fantasising every day but that’s most of the fun of being a writer!  I also use gorgeous celebrities as inspiration for the guys in my stories.  For instance, in Djinn and Tonic I was thinking about Jake Gyllenhaal when I pictured my genie in the flesh.  I have to admit that there are a couple of guys I work with who would blush if they knew they were in a couple of my stories too!

What are you working on now?

At the moment I’m working on a short for Rachel Kramer Bussell’s new call for submission, about female submission.  It’s an area I’m fascinated by, but not something I’ve written about before so I’m learning a lot.  I’m thinking that maybe I need to do some hands on research for this one!  I’m also working on a Shifter story which is turning out to be longer than I thought it would be.  I was originally thinking novella but I think maybe now I could go all the way!  I’m excited about getting back into the swing of things – the summer holidays have cramped my style a little, so I’m looking forward to some long, dark winter nights to fill with smut J

meandi09@yahoo.com

Kay Dee Royal said...

Hello Jennifer - thanks for stopping! I'm up late tonight, so popped in to check the place out and saw you here. We actually came together (all of the authors) after the book was written. We have our own little Yahoo Group and it's still under development (smile) - we haven't discovered all the ways we could use it yet.

Good luck in the drawing!

J.C. Martin said...

Hello everyone! Big thank you to the lovely ladies of Ravencraft for having us over! Like Kay Dee, I'm intrigued by how (and where) everyone got the inspirations for the myth behind the story, particularly the less well-known legends! Which is why I'm also doing a weekly promo post on my blog about it! It's up every Thursday if you're interested! :)

Lucy Felthouse said...

Hey everyone - thanks for stopping by!

@Jennifer, I think Kay Dee already answered your question. Basically I put a call out for submissions and authors sent stories to me, and I chose the ones I wanted in the anthology. I hope you'll agree that they're all awesome!

J. D. Brown said...

It's 3:54 AM here where I'm from and we already have 5 comments. Holy cow!

Okay, I'll come back when I'm more awake.

Welcome STM authors to RRR and Kay Dee and Sharon, you ladies are excellent hosts, as always. :)

- Danielle Ravencraft

Kay Dee Royal said...

Good morning everyone - rainy here, but an awesome day just the same.

Lucy Felthouse also has STM authors at her place on Mondays talking about the story they wrote for the anthology.

AND, J.C. told you about her place - fun to read how and why the authors came up with their Myth or Legend thread for an erotica story.

Hey everyone - I told you this place rocks!!

Maxine Marsh said...

Good morning everyone (I guess it's never too early to talk about sexy myths)! I'm excited to see you ladies here, thanks to the Realm for having us. I can't get enough of reading about the other authors' inspirations. Hope the readers enjoy!

Elizabeth N. Spire said...

Hi Lucy, just popped by to say 'Hi', while on a coffee break from writing!

Justine Elyot said...

Hi everyone - sorry I didn't get my act together in time to send something in for this, but great to see all the contributions and comments.

Seducing the Myth has such a great variety of stories - something for all tastes.

shadow_kohler said...

Great post! I love Myths and your stories sound so good! Your stories have been added to my wishlist! Cant wait to read it! When you found out your book was going to be published, how did you all celebrate? Do you do anything special? Thanks for sharing and for the giveaways!

Louisa Bacio said...

What a great mix-up! Thanks to Lucy to bringing all these wonderful authors together! And, Lydia, I also focused on horror as a teen. Maybe as a way to work through all those emotions?

J. D. Brown said...

Howdy guys - Danielle checking in again. Anyone need anything? A drink? Coffee? :-)

This is an exciting weekend. The biggest author interview and gathering we've had so far. Thanks for coming everyone.

~ Danielle Ravencraft

J. D. Brown said...

@Louisa - Hey! You probably don't remember me but I took one of your workshops on SavvyAuthors.com How's it going? :-)

Charlene A. Wilson said...

What a great gathering!

Rachel - You copied an erotic scene to the back of a document that was going to your boss???? Oh my word! LOL. *thinks what would happen if I'd done that to any of mine* hmmm knowing some of them, yeah, the kinks might have happened. :D

Welcome to the realm, everyone, and Great job ladies!

Sharon Hamilton said...

I just felt like I hit the jackpot. So many great new authors to read. I don't know where to start, except with this excellent book!

Sharon Hamilton said...

Lucy, and other talented ladies, let's do an anthology:

Seducing a SEAL. Great collection and I can't wait to read these stories.

I wrote an erotic story for my husband's birthday. Of course, he emailed all his friends, and I had to nicely tell him that was a no-no. But I like that he loved it enough to send it on, even if I had a hard time looking at any of them in the face.

Louisa Bacio said...

@ J.D. Thanks for the shout-out! Definitely remember your name. So nice of you to host all of us crazies myth-mysters!

Rachel Randall said...

@Charlene -- LOL I know right! OOPS :)

ChiSciFiWriter said...

Hiya Shadow,

It is always a nice email to get when you find your work included in a a collection. We're a fairly global group, so I suppose you could say we raised a virtual glass to each other as we said 'hey' 'congrats', 'excited' etc.

Kay Dee Royal said...

@ J.D. & Louisa - Yea - I took Louisa's classes at Savvy Authors also, only another name (LOL) -We probably took the same one - Was it about sex scenes??

This is like a party goin' on here - I could hear ya all from way down the street!! (LOL)

Bri Clark said...

OK I'm sufficiently enticed. I want the books. I want it Now. I want to win it!!!!

Kay Dee Royal said...

Sorry Bri...house rules and all (LOL).

@ Lexi - so...you're thinking about hands-on submission...you know I've heard a number of authors open to experiences to give more realistic spice to their work. Hmmm

Hawthorn said...

Hi all - great post, and fab to see so much interest being generated here and elsewhere on the internet as well.
Looking forward to following the discussion here and hanging out with y'all!
Hawthorn X

J.C. Martin said...

The party's getting on! :)

Shadow - I don't know how the rest of the authors celebrated, but when I found out my story was accepted and will be published, I was all "Really?" Hadn't expected my first ever attempt at erotica to get accepted! But I'm so glad it's here, and I'm in such fantastic writerly company!

Kay Dee Royal said...

@ J.C. The party is getting on. Isn't it awesome! I didn't realize God of Pleasure was your first written erotica story - way to go! Congratulations...like a pro. Smile.

S.Durham said...

Better late than never as they say, and hey I'm out on the west coast afterall:) How fun to hear a little about how each of you started writing erotica, and what a cool idea for an anthology! I haven't read alot of erotica, but I think this would be a good way to start:) Especially sampling all these styles of authors... Congratulations to all the authors and Lucy for putting it together.

Cheers, Sara

Lydia Nyx said...

A little bit late getting in here (the day job kept me away!) but I just wanted to say I'm really pleased to be in the company of so many awesome authors! Thanks for having us here today!

Kay Dee Royal said...

Hi Sara! Thanks for stopping in...and you're right about getting an array of samplings. I actually read a lot of anthologies for that reason - I find some good authors that way.
Congratulations to you for Powers. Exciting! It's on my TBR list (ever growing list). LOL
So glad you made to our party.

Lucy Felthouse said...

Wow, we've had a fab response so far, that's awesome! I, for one had an excellent time putting the anthology together and the response has been amazing, I'm so pleased!

*raises glass* happy weekend, everyone!

Kay Dee Royal said...

Good Morning everyone - got a good night's sleep and am ready and rarin' to go.

@So, Lucy...have you given any thought to a Seducing the Myth II? (tee-hee)

Lucy Felthouse said...

@Kay Dee Royal - behave yourself, you! ;)

Kay Dee Royal said...

@Lucy - Okay...but it's tough...I think because I'm enjoying this experience so much with the STM author group. Thanks for having a vision and bringing it to fruition. You ROCK, Lucy!

Caroline said...

Hi everyone, sorry I'm late!

Shadow - I celebrated with a big whoop and a one-woman conga around the living room while the dogs looked at me as if I'd gone crazy (nothing new there...!)

PattiP9001 said...

Hello everyone. This is a great post so far and I am bummed that I won't be able to check in as regularly as I would on a normal day. My hubby decided to have a bbq today so I will have to make excuses to go to the bathroom and log on every so often..lol

musicalfrog at comcast.net

Kay Dee Royal said...

@Caroline - me too!! I danced around like a one-woman show and my dog ran around with me barking at my heels...maybe it's because I sounded a bit off-key with my added singing. LOL

I also treated myself to a giant-sized iced Mocha (dang, I love those things).

Naomi Bellina said...

Hello! I like the comment by Lydia Nyx...she's a smut peddler but the world does love smut! Romance is the top selling genre, last I heard, and it's very nice to know that women are enjoying the erotic side of love.

naomibellina@live.com

J. D. Brown said...

Wow, nice party we have going on here!

@Kay Dee and Luisa - Yes! It was her writing a sex scene workshop! Wow, small world. ;-) And Luisa, we're crazy too. HAHA.

@J.C. - My first published piece was also my first attempt at erotica and a short story (A Trace of Love). Good way to get a foot into the industry, huh? :) Wishing you many more successes.

Kay Dee & J.D. -- Thanks. :) I'm not sure how much erotica I'll be writing in the future, but I sure enjoyed writing this one!

Caroline said...

Not sure what time it is EST now (I'm in the UK, battening down the hatches as we wait for the tail end of Katia to hit my part of Scotland), but good luck to everyone in the draw!
