I’ve done it!
I finally followed a friend’s advice and tried writing something different. I have always written romances, and they will always be my main focus. But my friend suggested I write a short story for a new publisher, and I decided to throw my hat in and add a new branch to my romance tree: erotica. The publisher was looking for ‘on the edge’ sexual stories, as wicked, raunchy, deviant, borderline-legal as you could write, and hot enough to burn up the pages.
Now if that isn’t a challenge, I don’t know what is. I challenged myself a few years ago to write a sweet romance (ie: NO sex) that my then-underage niece could read, as she was always so supportive of my writing. I loved writing September’s Gold (under my sweet pseudonym Ashlyn Barré).
So I let my imagination walk on the wild side, and a naughty little story came out of the trip. I held my breath and pushed the SEND button, then distracted myself as best I could. Much to my surprise, my story was quickly accepted by the new publisher!
So there you have it! Visual Seduction will be coming out soon with Razor’s Edge Press!
Here’s a quick blurb:
Chris has always careful around Danielle, even during sex. She’s afraid he’ll leave if she tells him how much the thought of someone spying on her during sex turns her on. But when Chris catches her masturbating in her bathroom window–in full view of the people on the street below — he loses every bit of his legendary control, introducing Dani to the dark desires he’s been holding back.
Content warning: Rough sexual play, anal sex, exhibitionism
No, I won’t stop writing romances. In fact, I have to admit that I did sneak some romance into Visual Seduction. After all, I’m a romance writer. This story just took all those naughty little things hiding somewhere in the back of my imagination and brought them into the light.
I hope you enjoy it when it comes out, I’ll definitely let you know when the book is released, so you can join me in my walk on the wild side.
