On Writing: My Writing Process Blog Tour

On Writing: My Writing Process Blog Tour

Thanks to Ursula Renee for bringing me into this fun blog tour. Ursula is the author of multicultural and historical romances including Sweet Jazz from Wild Rose Press. She is the president of the Romance Writers of America NYC chapter. http://blog.ursularenee.com

 1) What am I working on?

I’m writing a new erotic novel called Dangerous Play. It’s about a pre-med student who goes into hiding after her parents are murdered, and ends up with a brand-new identity…as a dominatrix. Of course, a handsome, irresistible client turns the tables on her, teaching her how to submit, and making it impossible to hide her past.

 2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?

A lot of books feature women as submissives, but I haven’t read about many women as Dommes. I had a Domme character in my second novel, Fallen Angel, and I wanted to re-visit that and explore it more deeply.

 3) Why do I write what I do?

I believe the way we are in the bedroom tells a lot about who we are outside of it. So I like to explore characters’ sex lives.

 4) How does your writing process work?

I can’t write for long chunks of time. I’m always multi-tasking. So I might write five hundred words, then do a blog post, then write another two hundred. Then Google something for research, like a wardrobe idea or details about setting then write another fifty. I spend nine hours a day in front of the computer, but I write the novels in fits and starts.

Next week (April 7) visit: Mindy Klasky, the author of the Diamond Brides series with PITCH PERFECT on the way March 31.

I’m excited to hear that Joanna Trollope’s re-imagining of Sense and Sensibility is coming to televisionaSpanishLoverolderolderSpanishlover. Her novel A Spanish Lover is one of my favs. In my continued obsession with the evolution of book cover art, check out the original version of the book versus the latest cover I found.
