Making notes: From Bondi to the Blue Mosque

They say criminals often  return to the scene of the crime. Well, maybe authors do too. Why else am I standing in 27-degree  sunshine  on the promenade at Bondi  – Sydney’s iconic beach – watching the surf pound in along a kilometre of golden sand. Oh, I remember now. It’s mid-winter in Vancouver, where the […]

Early Valentine’s Treat

I’m currently down-under, but I’m hearing it’s pretty darn cold back home in Canada. In an effort to send you a little bit of warmth, I’m offering Spank free through this Sunday, February 3rd. And don’t worry if you don’t have a kindle, you can still download the kindle app and read it on your computer. […]

Romance readers will feel the love

Before the holidays,  I left you with a reporter’s questions about Spank: The Improbable Adventures of George Aloysius Brown. She wanted to know what sort of reader I think it will attract and why anyone who isn’t familiar with the erotica genre would want to read it . I’ll be honest, if people are turned […]

A Visit from St. Nicholas

(With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore) ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a keyboard was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hope that e-readers soon would be there; And the writers were nestled all snug in their beds Dreaming of royalties […]

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

I’m sure every new author dreams of scoring a book review in a big city daily newspaper. But for erotica writers that dream often seems less achievable. Right now, I have three prospects for just that and I’m very excited to see whether they come to fruition. But generally speaking, erotica, no matter how good […]

Confession of a grateful writer

Writers are often asked who inspires them, what writers have most influenced them on their literary journey. The number of authors I admire and enjoy are  too numerous to list here, but I thought I might tell you about one writer who influenced the creation of Spank. That would be author and journalist Daphne Merkin, […]

Musings of a soccer Mom on erotica

I now have ten reviews for my book on Amazon. I consider it a milestone of sorts; it really excites me to read what other people think about my creation. There’s nothing like the judgment of strangers to get the heart racing! Anyone who puts their work in the public eye would probably say the […]

New Praise for Spank!

“When I expressed my surprise about Spank to my wife, my surprise that spanking could be such an erotic turn on, her surprise was that I was surprised. Of course being spanked is a turn on she informed me. Perhaps reading this witty salacious book will change your life as it did mine. Even if it doesn’t […]

Why erotica should be written on papyrus

So what exactly is erotica? According to Wikipedia, “Erotic literature comprises fictional and factual stories and accounts of human sexual relationships which have the power to or are intended to arouse the reader sexually.” That definition works for me, but what the official definition doesn’t capture is the lengthy history of erotica as an honourable […]
