I’m bordering on brain dead right now. I’ve pushed to write around the kids today and I’ve been very happy with the results, but for some reason today it has really tired me out more than usual.
Still, I am so happy with where I am in Trinity. I feel like I’ve hit my stride with it and the writing is easier.
Favorite lines of the day: She looked up, into his face, met his eyes and smiled. “Did you have a request?”
“My cock does and I’m its spokesperson.”
She laughed. “I suppose it wants to go to Target to get some socks.”
I had a lot of reader mail today – here are a few things –
Not all my books are erotic romances. By that I mean, some of them are what I’d term sensual romances while others are erotic romances. I got an angry letter this morning from a reader who felt there was not nearly enough sex in my Chase books and she was upset about that. I see my books all being referred to as “erotica” on the reader sites like goodreads and then people take their frustration out in the reviews if they feel like they didn’t know.
All I can say is this – I certainly hope readers like all my books. I hope readers enjoy the couples and their stories. While everyone has preferences, I’d like to think all my books have a lot of sensuality in them, even if they are not classified as “erotic.”
But – it’s totally okay to only want to read red hots, or to not want to read red hots and only want to read sensual romances. The books ARE labeled – which should be of help.
My Chase Brothers series are NOT labeled as “Red Hot” via Samhain. They are simply classified as “contemporary romance” Always – also a contemporary romance. My Cascadia Wolves, the holiday shorts, etc – those are classified as red hots/erotic romance.
All my EC books are erotic romances because that’s what the publisher puts out. My Berkley Heat books are also erotic romances – again, it’s an erotic line much like Spice and Black Lace is. Those books are erotic romances and are labeled that way.
I try to be sure to give people the tools with which to make their choices – the labels on the books themselves are the first key and I’m fortunate to say so far, the labels have been correct (sometimes I notice things classified as one thing or other and I feel like the terms are not accurate).
Just a little FYI that I hope is helpful!
