Four Secrets to my Writing Process (blog hop)

I was tagged in this blog hop by my writing buddy Drew Gerken… Thanks dude!

I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I’ve got to get some fucking writing done tonight!

Q1: What are you working on?

Right now I’m working on Untitled (Fortune For Love #2) and have about 8k words down.  It is a story that is in the same group of friends as my debut novel Sin For Love but instead of Reese & Tessa the main characters are Marcus & Alayna (Tessa’s little sister).  It will be a new spin on Beauty And The Beast but it doesn’t follow the story exactly, just little nods to it here and there.  Definitely not your mother’s fairy tale.  There will be sex, and lots of it.

I never planned it this way but S4L turned into a bit of a Cinderella story so I’ve decided to do that with all 4 in this series, make them roughly based on fairy tales.

Q2: How does your work differ from others in the genre?

wow that is a loaded question.  I wrote Sin For Love for me.  I wanted to write a book that had in it what I wanted to read.  And I wanted something that didn’t follow the formula for a Romance/Erotica book.  I also feel that I have a good mix of hot sex, angst, and laughs.  I write about strong female characters who don’t apologize for who they are and are not broken.  They submit but dominate at the same time.  I guess you could say they top from the bottom.

Q3: Why do you write what you write?

I write what I write because it is what I want to write.  It gets my heart beating fast and makes me feel what my characters are feeling… ahhh the feels!  I write what I write because my characters are real people and their stories need to be told.  I write what I write because it turns me on.

Q4: How does your writing process work?

There are plotters and there are pantsers… I am a Plantser.  I have a basic plot that is outlined to help me get from point A to point B.  However, like I mentioned earlier my characters are REAL and they have stories to tell so they usually run amuck and that is where the best parts come from.  For example I never planned on having Reese practice his baseball swing on some fucking asshole’s kneecaps but it happened and it was amazing.

The Hop

I’m supposed to pass the torch on to keep this fire burning…

Emily R. Pearson

Emily is my twinner in every sense other than when we were born.  We both wrote our debut novels during NaNoWriMo of 2013 and released the same day.  That is not where the similarities end and I feel that I’ve found a sister for life 🙂  Check out her novel Moving Forward.
