This month I celebrate my three year anniversary. Not my wedding (although that was this month too – 19 years), but of the start of an erotic romance writing career. On July 23, 2009, I signed a contract with Black Velvet Seductions for Intimate Submission, my very first erotic romance. I’ve now published six erotic romances with three difference publishers.
I’ve been a writer all my life (I’m a former newspaper reporter), and I was working toward putting together a collection of mainstream short stories at the time that I began writing Intimate Submission. I’ve always found the dynamic of boss/employee romances hot, so I was playing with a story about a woman who goes to a job interview and is so bowled over by the man who would be her boss, she would do anything to please him – including have sex with him during the interview.
Because I was playing, I tossed in quite a bit of kink, including spanking.
But when I got done, I thought, “This isn’t bad. Maybe I can sell this!”
I did some research and discovered that BVS had put out a call for submission to a “spanked wives anthology.” The description of what Laurie was looking for and the length seemed to match what I had written, so I emailed it off.
I’d like to share my anniversary with you. Tell me about a special anniversary of yours and you’ll be entered to win a copy of Intimate Submission. (You’ll actually receive a code that will enable you to download a copy from Smashwords). Be sure to leave your email address.
