During 2018 my characters were as varied as the situations in which they found themselves. My aim throughout this new year will be to produce another selection of colourful characters—male, female, and those who haven’t quite decided.
Lined up and all at different stages of completion I have a novel, a novella, and a book of verse showing in my Work in Progress section. Yes, you read it correctly, I’m also compiling a collection of erotic poetry.
Tongue in Cheek will be at least thirty poems of an erotic nature—I’m aiming for more, but it will be yet another literary experiment. How far I can take poetry in this genre remains to be seen, but I want to include as much diversity and range as possible, and there is a lot going on, or in, out there.
The cover has already changed twice.
A Class Act revolves around a writing group and those who attend. The tale started life as a short story, but as these things do, just like the relationship between the characters, it got totally out of hand. From tight short story, the idea blossomed into a novella, but no, the people involved wanted more from me. It will make its public appearance as a novel.
Woman to Woman is the working title of a novella which supplements my first erotic novel.
How has that happened?
When I published Give & Take it was a big step for me, because although I’d had good feedback and reviews on my first anthology of the erotica genre, I’d never attempted a novel. The result I’m delighted to say was that Give & Take continues to sell, and it has a few reviews, which is unusual for the genre. I had several private messages via my website asking for more information about the history of Heather (the sexual therapist), and Leanne (the sexy sidekick).
The result—Woman to Woman. The story takes us back a few years to when the two women met and I intend it is ‘fleshed-out’ with enough information to keep everybody content.
And there you have it my friends, a brief look ahead to what is coming in 2019 from my erotica stable. As opposed to being a dedicated writer of erotica, the genre supplements my mainstream projects. I’m confident that my new titles will be published this year, but there will be no rush. I hope you find something in my E-catalogue to satisfy you.
