I want to introduce a new friend to Seven Sexy Scribes Louisa Masters! Louisa writes spicy and hot erotic-romance and I know you all love that, so I’m going to allow Louisa to speak for herself…
My Sex Life—Fabulous or Fantasy?
My first erotic romance was released in December 2011, and numbers two and three are due out this summer. So I haven't been in the market for that long. Yet already, I have been subjected innumerable times to "the question".
"How do you come up with your ideas?" Wink, wink. "Your sex life must be amazing."
Seriously? My favourite answer—preferably right after they've taken a sip from their drink—is "Actually, I'm a virgin."
It seems ridiculous for people to assume I have no imagination simply because I write erotic romance. Do people ask Stephen King if his life is a nightmare of strange and terrifying occurrences?
Consider this: Inter-Office Relations, currently available from The Wild Rose Press, kicks off with Jeannie propositioning her office crush, Tim. They get it on in the conference room, and several other interesting places. Did I ever do that? No. Did I want to? Definitely. Tim is loosely based on a guy I had a crush on when I worked in the corporate world.
One Night in a Bar, due June 25th from Total-E-Bound, is about Karen, who goes to a bar she normally wouldn't frequent after finding her boyfriend in bed with two other men. She dances with a sexy stranger and bangs him in the alley behind the bar. Did I ever do that? No. Did I want to? Only in my dreams. In reality, the idea scares the crap out of me J
Diving In Deep, part of The Wild Rose Press's Boys of Summer series and due out—you guessed it—later this summer, is a m/m/m story about Cameron, who takes time off from his life to reinvent himself and meets Jake and Troy, the sexy duo running a reef diving company. There's no way in hell this one could be based on my sex life—I don't have the requisite body parts.
Writing erotic romance means that I'm open to more than just the missionary position (although, if done right, missionary can be a real good time). It means I'm not afraid to go into adult toy stores, and that I'll admit to owning a vibrator—several, actually. It does not mean that I spend my days in a sex swing experimenting with toys while practicing positions from the Kama Sutra. Although, that does sound fun...
Erotic writers of the world, what other misconceptions have you been subjected to?
