Wednesday Writing

Writing tip of the month:

Write the blurb for any work in progress as if you were ready to submit it to the publisher and this will help cement what you want to tell readers about it. And if you want to take it further, try writing the blurb in different lengths, eg, 50 words, 150 words, 300 words.

What's Doing?

I am going to looking at posts on my blog that are the most popular.

Top at the moment is Nude & Erotic photos. This one has attracted something like 60+ pageviews in the past week and over 2,000 since it went up a year ago. I wrote it as part of a series of posts highlighting different things I had featured in my Friends & Acquaintances and Doms & Acquaintances series following on from my own experience when I had some erotic photos taken for my 50th birthday to prove I could still be sexy despite middle aged body issues.

I am not surely sure people coming to my blog looking for nude pics are particularly looking for pics of a 50 year old……

Interestingly this one and Erotic Movie Scenes are the two most popular blog posts of all time on my blog, both attracting way way more page views than any other page, although the movie scenes one hasn’t been popular lately (this one was taken from ‘Friend of Foe’ where the heroine was writing her first erotic romance using erotic scenes from movies like when Richard Gere has sex with Julia Roberts on the piano in ‘Pretty Woman’.

Next time – Fictional BDSM versus Real Life BDSM.

Wednesday Writing

This is the first of the character profiles from the main characters featured in my published books.

Character profile:

Name – Luke/Lucas (the latter is his BDSM name)

Book – Retraining the Sub

Love interest – Ann/Annabel (who originally jilted him at the altar)

Age – 31 (23 in opening scene)

Hair/eyes - dark blond, cut military short (used to curl on neck in opening scene), blue eyes.

Height/weight - About 6ft in. Now muscular torso (used to be thinner).

Looks - Handsome but now has hard arrogant face.

Other – He had been a Dom six years when the story starts in the current day.

Review (from Nocturne Romance Reads Reviews):

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It is set mainly within a BDSM club and presents several activities which are carefully explained both how and why. Someone curious about BDSM would enjoy what this book has to offer.
I absolutely love both main characters. I admire Ann, and can relate with her very well. She is someone who went with the flow of life, but when it came down to a big decision she knew she wasn’t ready and she took off to find herself. She is someone who wants to be dominated/topped, but not hurt. She has limits and she has a backbone to stick-up for herself. Then Luke enters the scene in all his magnificent sexy power. They are both looking for something, and they find it in each other. She can’t trust any master because they are too rough, he is too rough because he doesn’t care about anyone. The chemistry between them is explosive.

What's Doing?

Something you never knew about me….

I have several moles on or near my boobs! Actually they are not moles at all but something called Cherry Angiomas caused by a proliferation of blood vessels close to the skin and are more common as you get older apparently! Mine certainly appeared in my 40s.

Now if I lived in the Middle Ages I might be accused of being a witch, as they may have regarded me as having a third nipple, one of the moles being between the two breasts!

Thankfully I am living now!
