SmutTalk: Writing Believable (and good) Sex Scenes

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!)

Lust, Actually (Sneak Peek!)

Hey, guess what! I’ve just published a steamy, brand new holiday story called Making MoviesI 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

Making-Movies-coverLauren usually loved the firm’s Christmas bash. The food was good, the drinks were flowing, and her fellow employees cut loose — even the notoriously uptight CEO Jillian.

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:

Sometimes your dream falls at your feet

And sometimes you’re the one who tumbles

The Visitor Falls: A Friendly Reverse Harem TaleDuring 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:

  1. The Visitor Celebrates
  2. The Visitor Falls (order now!)
  3. The Visitor Stands Tall (coming soon!)
(20,0000 words; Interracial reverse harem, MMMF, BWWM, BWAM; scenes of group, bisexual and bi-curious sexuality. Adult readers only.)

New release: The Visitor Comes for the Holidays (interracial reverse harem)

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:

THE VISITOR COMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS (MMMF INTERRACIAL REVERSE HAREM)

$3.99 $2.99

Be careful what you wish for

And ready when it comes!

The Visitor Comes for the HolidaysGina’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.)

Well, actually, whose couch she hopes very much she won’t be sleeping on. But it turns out that Andy, Sean’s roommate, is another, equally hot Southern firefighter, and so when a visitor — or perhaps two — joins Lea on that couch, it sparks a series of events that none of them could possibly have foreseen.

Sneak peek #2 — Handmaiden: The Visitor’s Wedding

Handmaiden coverSo I’m done with Handmaiden: The Visitor’s Weddingthe next Visitor story! I shared the opening bit — a sexy morsel of interracial FFF.

Here’s the next section, which features Kirsten discovering just what it’s like to serve a mistress — and a master. (FFM interracial menage — for adult readers only.)

Sneak peek: Handmaiden (interracial FFF)

Sneak peek: Handmaiden (interracial FFF)

visitor-wedding-kirsten-coverSo earlier this summer, Stillpoint/Eros sent out a poll asking which of several story ideas I should work on. And the results were a tie between two: A M/F/M triangle/ménage among a group of old friends and another Visitor’s Wedding story — the tale of what Kirsten, Cherry, and Prior got up to while Lea, Sean, and Andy consummated their threeway marriage.

I’ve been working away at Open Door, the triangle/ménage piece — it’s looking to be at least novella length, if not a full-length novel. It’s a lot longer on sexual tension than most of my previous stories — I think it’s going to be hot as hell!

In the mean time, I’m almost done with Handmaiden, the next Visitor story, so I thought I’d share the opening bit — some of which will be somewhat familiar from The Visitor Has Company. Though the complete story features an interracial FFM threesome, this bit is mostly focussed on Kirsten and Cherry preparing bride Lea for her husbands. Do let me know what you think!
