I don’t mean literally. I mean, what is it about a book, particularly an erotic book, that sucks you in, makes you need to read the next page?
For me, it is often a relationship at risk. You can populate your story with an endless array of hard-bodied, sexually adventurous characters, but that’s just a story about dicks, tits, and ass. Ultimately, that is a yawn.
What gets me is always when there is something emotional at stake. Unrequited love. Risky sex. Relationships tested. That is where eroticism comes from, no?
Let me know what you think.
I started this blog to, ideally, get some discussion going. Help me out. What makes a story hot for you?
Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been working hard on a couple of new books. One of them is now basically done and is in editing, so it should be out reasonably soon… definitely by the end of the month, maybe sooner.
My new book is something of a departure for me. There are many of the same themes I’ve written about before: A sexy wife, other men. But the story is richer, deeper, than anything I’ve written.
At its core it is a crime thriller. Think a pornified version of Carl Hiassen. There are strippers, drug dealers, and in the middle of it all, a white bread couple desperately trying to keep their heads above water. It has been fun to write. I hope people like it.
More updates coming soon!
