So a friend on an erotica-writing community that I’ve been part of for a while is giving a talk to a local romance writing group about writing smut. And surveyed us about our thoughts on how to right good sex scenes. I thought it might be interesting for me to share my thoughts — and get some of yours! (I’ll also link to the survey at the bottom, if you’d like to participate yourself. OH! And I link to not one but THREE new titles at the end!)
Hey, guess what! I’ve just published a steamy, brand new holiday story called Making Movies. I know, I know — no one is more surprised than me. I was watching a, um, very popular holiday movie (points for guessing which!) and this story popped into my head, fully formed.
Stillpoint/Eros has posted a fun, hot sneak preview called….
Lust, Actually — A Making Movies Preview
And the previous two years, once everyone had gotten thoroughly plowed, she’d dragged Ray off, and they’d indulged in a particularly sweaty, particularly spectacular fuck.
The first time, two years before, they’d started making out in the hallway outside the bathrooms, when Glynna, the firm’s controller, had stepped out, rolled her eyes at them and snarked, as always, “Get a fucking room.”
And so, giggling, they had done just that:
Guess what! Let It Go, my newest friendly MMF menage tale, comes out on Friday, August 2!
Let It Go follows Helen, Tommy, and Al (from Let It Snow), as they reach their gold at the end of the rainbow. Their ride off into the sunset. Their polyamorous honeymoon on an idyllic tropical beach.
Unfortunately, a cloud from Helen’s past threatens to darken their paradise. Will her wonderful new relationship with her best friend Tommy and his husband Al survive the arrival of her former fiancé… and his new wife?
Morning Yoga from Let It Go
Thanks, everyone, for your incredibly helpful responses to my question about polyamory. Your thoughts changed the scene, which I’d thought of as awkward but comic, into one that raises much more serious questions, ones the protagonist then wrestles with through the rest of the story.
Here’s the scene — if you have any feedback (either about the scene, about the woman’s questions, or about Gina’s answers), I’d love to hear them! (For reference: Gina, a black pre-law student, has been in a quad with three guys — Jim, Matt, and Sam — for the previous month. If you’d like a peek at their story, you can get a very NSFW preview here.)
The Visitor Rises (Preview #1) — Streetcar
- Friends who’ve been involved in poly relationships: What questions do people always ask you when they find out (reasonable or not)?
- Friends who HAVEN’T: What questions would you want to ask someone who told you they were in a multi-partner relationship?
So I’m working on The Visitor Rises, the next story in Gina’s continuing polyamorous apprenticeship. It’s looking as if it’s going to be a bit shorter than the first two titles in the series, and it’s going to feature a birthday celebration.
Now, obviously, it’s going to include fun times with her dancer boys, Sam, Jim, and Matt. But what I need help deciding is whether to include Marie the Porn Star, turning it from a woman-and-her-three-men reverse harem to a two-women-three-men orgy. And if Marie gets to play along, should I allow her and Gina to have fun together, or should the only bisexuality be between the boys? (Say that three times fast!)
Hey! Stillpoint/Eros just posted a sneak peak of my new interracial reverse harem tale, The Visitor Falls! Check out what new polyamorous exploits Gina gets up to in this steamy sequel to The Visitor Celebrates.
Psst! You can pre-order The Visitor Falls for just $0.99 on Stillpoint/Eros or at your favorite ebook retailer… But only through September 1!
Preview: The Visitor Falls
Sometimes your dream falls at your feet
And sometimes you’re the one who tumbles
During the holidays, Gina got everything she could have dreamed of and more: a night of off-the-hook passion with two gorgeous firemen and their equally hunky best friend. It opened her eyes in more ways than one.
Since then, however, everything in the college student’s life has paled in comparison, and she’s begun to despair of ever feeling quite so alive — of ever finding the kind of polyamorous happily-ever-after enjoyed by her in-laws (the menage-happy crowd from The Visitor Comes for Good and The Visitor’s Wedding). When she takes a tumble down a mountain-side and twists her ankle, it seems like a perfect metaphor for her unsatisfying life.
But then she discovers that she’s fallen at the feet of three gorgeous ballet dancers who carry her down the mountain like a queen, and she thinks perhaps things are looking up!
A girl can’t help but hope
This novella is the second installment in The Visitor’s Apprentice, a wild, reverse-harem follow-up to The Visitor Saga and The Visitor’s Wedding:
(20,0000 words; Interracial reverse harem, MMMF, BWWM, BWAM; scenes of group, bisexual and bi-curious sexuality. Adult readers only.)
RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 1, 2018
So here’s a sneak preview from my next new story, Wolf & Wand!
It’s a real departure for me — on a number of levels. First of all, it’s a no-kidding BDSM story, which I hope some of you will enjoy! Second of all, it’s a paranormal shifter story, featuring a werewolf and a witch. And third, it’s a period piece set in pre-Revolution France, back in the 18th century.
I’d love to know what you think!
Moonset — Wolf & Wand Preview
Happy day-before-Valentine’s Day!
Thanks so much for your help in choosing to write the full scene of Lea getting Gina nice and clean for her night with Sean, Andy, and Prior! I had a blast writing the scene, so I thought I’d share it with you here in its totality — I’d love to know what you think!
Close Shave: The Visitor Comes for the Holidays Preview
Thanks to all of you who helped me figure out whether to have young Gina shave or not!
Stillpoint/Eros has now released my latest tale of polyamorous exploration, The Visitor Comes for the Holidays, so you can see how the scene came out for yourself:
Be careful what you wish for
And ready when it comes!
Gina’s happy to be joining her brother’s new extended family for the holidays. There’s snow, and laughter, and even a bunch of sweet kids that the older folks pay Gina to mind a couple of hours a day. A college girl can use every dime she can get her hands on!
The problem is what the others are doing while she’s babysitting.
Because the family Gina’s brother Mario married into — it’s the wildly polyamorous clan from The Visitor Saga! It’s no fun being the only person in a huge vacation house spending her nights not just alone, but with fewer than three people in her bed.
Of course, Lea, Sean, Andy and the rest don’t want to leave poor Gina out. They decide to give her a holiday present she’ll never forget.
This is the first story in The Visitor Revisited, a series of stories about a young woman reimagining love — and discovering all of the unexpected places that it can lead.
(21,000 words. Interracial polyamorous erotic romance — BWWMWMBM reverse harem. Implied MFF and FFF. Adult readers only.)
