Sensually Wicked Man Love

The thoughts and challenges I come across in being a heterosexual woman, wife and mother who loves to write m/m erotic romances. I'm not gay or male, but the thoughts of two gorgeous, confident men together is my idea of a hot time! I write for others, both men and women, who feel the same.

I'm a Passionate Plume RWA contest finalist!

I go the news last week and I couldn't be more thrilled! My m/m erotic romance novel is a finalist in a RWA contest! I was very honored and so pleased by it, I could hardly think straight for a moment when I got the notification. The full impact of a m/m romance finalizing didn't actually hit me until the congratulations began pouring in and other, more experienced authors began to tell me of outstanding it was for my novel to be included. I'm even more honored and surprised now than I was before. Just plain thrilling!

A Different Light BookStore

While surfing the internet and googling my name for information about myself(I learn many things about me this way) I found my m/m erotic novel A BIT OF ROUGH listed on the online catalog for the LA based gay book store A DIFFERENT LIGHT! Imagine how thrilled I was to see it. I don't know if that means they are carrying it on the shelves, but I loved seeing on their web page. Can B&N be far behind?

advertising payoffs

I picked up the current copy of RT book club magazine today. I have an ad running it from the TRS and I wanted to see how it looked. Even though it was a black and white ad it was very nice and clear, showcasing the five novels well. I decided it was worth the money spent when I saw it, but I was convinced of its worth even more when I received an email from a friend who does a lot of Live Journal reading.

She stumbled across a LJ entry by someone who enjoys m/m romance and saw the ad. This woman was amazed and EXCITED to see a m/m romance in the RT magazine. She was hoping it would become a trend for RT. Her comments pleased and encouraged me. Even if one person sees the ad, checks out my website or reads my books, the genre is making headway. Maybe acceptance of m/m erotic romance will find a place on bookshelves soon, as well.

sequels and thrillers

That's what I'll be doing the rest of the year. I'm writing a sequel to "A BIT OF ROUGH" titled "ROUGHHOUSING" now. I'm thrilled readers liked the first story enough to want more of the characters of James and Bram! I love those hotties!

Then I'll polish up my thriller m/m romance between Gabriel and Antonio, "MEXICAN HEAT", and get that out there for all the world to read.

Need to dabble in little in the DUG vampire world, too, before the fall!

After that, I'm going to write the next book that follows the adventures of my pirate and bounty hunter, Aidan and Talos, in "DETAILS OF THE HUNT". I know no one has read that one yet, but I adore the characters and the humor in that world. I have enough plotlines to write at least six more adventures for them, so I HAVE to write it! I haven't picked a title yet, but it'll let itself be known to me soon. They always do!

Kinda weird to have the rest of my year planned out for me by fictional characters, but I think I'm going to have some fun!
