A Day in The Life Of An Erotic Author
My days are spent like any other erotic author...nothing special really. But let me first squelch any myths that may have evolved over the years.
Myth: All erotic romance authors are addicted to having sex all the time.
Fact: We may think about sex, write about sex and talk about sex all the time...but in reality,we're too tired for sex.
Why? We promote, write and have a 24/7 job..simply...we ARE tired.
Myth: Every scene we write in our novels we have performed, witnessed or participated in- that's why the scenes are so descriptive.
Fact: No. We just have a very creative imagination. Maybe some of us have experienced these incidents, but not me.
Why? First off, I'm a female, so anatomically I cannot perform M/M scenes and vice versa for male erotic authors with F/F scenes. *NOTE: Plus we're tired.
Myth: Erotic authors' wardrobes consist of lingerie, sexy short skirts and provocative clothing.
Fact: We sit at our computer desks in our ratty pajamas, usually no make-up, uncombed hair and maybe showered before noon. We have a cup of cold coffee next to us because no one is around to refill it for us.
Why? Because we live double lives. The one you read, and assume we are, and the one actually are.
Myth: We are on the prowl for our next sex scene and novel idea wherever we are...OK, I'll give you that one but don't ask us to name a character after you...
So there it is ladies and gents...what a real erotic author's day is like. But let's not forget the laundry, the dishes, the kids and family and most importantly, a shower before noon.
