To entertain you today, I’d like to offer a little perspective on what inspires the erotic parts of erotic romance.

Not long ago, an aspiring writer asked me where my inspiration for erotica comes from—personal experience or imagination? It was kind of a personal question, but I did my best to answer it, and it got me thinking.

Inspiration for writing erotic scenes can come from many directions. There’s not one easy way to get the words to flow or the creativity to spark. You have to write from a combination of experience and imagination. Most erotica writers don’t have all the crazy experiences they write in their stories (and sometimes you can really tell), but many of those same made-up fantasies will speak to readers anyway. To put it in another context, think of an Indiana Jones screenplay. Do you think the screenplay writer(s) had experience running through jungles, dodging giant boulders, and vanquishing evil-doers? Seems unlikely. But they came up with those ideas anyway. The same can be said for erotic writing. You can be inspired by the NOT doing, or the doing, but you nearly always have to use your imagination to get things down in pixels.

You can’t write about sex eloquently unless you’ve had it. But once that’s out of the way, you can do all kinds of crazy things with that experience.

How is 2014 coming along for you so far? I hope it’s got as much promise for you as it has for me. I have 7 books planned for this year so, Fates willing, I’ll be able to share a lot of new and fun stories with you.

Cover by Erin Dameron HillFor this week, I’d like to continue exploring The Girl with the Thistle Tattoo. Several people have asked me if this story is anything along the lines of another book with a similar name. It’s not. This one is an erotic spanking romance, much like most of my others, but it has a twist: the heroine is deeply flawed and is struggling to change herself. If you’ve ever wondered how you were going to get out of the corner you painted yourself into, this will be the story for you.

In this segment, Cal and Astraea are at a crossroads. She’s just been spanked, but they’re both way turned on. Cal doesn’t want to take advantage of her vulnerability, but at the same time… Well, you’ll see.

“You wouldn’t be using me. I want it…oh…” Her moan got to him. It was deeply sexual, striking directly to his hindbrain and making his already hard cock throb with energy.

Now that it’s caught your attention (I hope positively), you can pick up your own copy at these select distributors:

Blushing Books, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Now have a little drink of water, cold water, and hop along to the other Horny Hump Day blogs. Horny Hump Day is hot!

Hi, Everyone! You’ve probably already seen my Spanking Romance Round Table post, giving my opinion on Feminism and Spanking. It might be a little controversial, but I’m opinionated like that. You can find it here.

Also today, my book, The Winner: Romantek is being featured on Celeste Jones’ Spanking Stories Book Club. She always asks insightful questions, and they don’t always pertain only to the book. Whether you’ve read The Winner yet or not, I hope you’ll pop over to Celeste’s place and add your two cents. It’s sure to be an interesting discussion.

Furthermore, The Princess and the Huntsman is firmly on the Amazon Top 100 for Erotica this week. It’s an honor to be among the greats. I feel like a bit of an impostor, but that won’t stop me from being excited by the company I’m keeping. If you haven’t read The Princess and the Huntsman, I hope you’ll take the word of a lot of other erotica readers and pick yourself up a copy. You can find the summary and an excerpt right here.

Lastly, I inked a contract with Blushing Books for the sequel to Kiki’s Millionaire. It’s called The Girl with the Thistle Tattoo. If you’ve been curious to find out what happens to Cal Chesterfield, this will be your chance. You’ll see it on the ebook shelves before the year is over, I expect.

Thanks for joining me on my peregrinations today, and don’t forget to come back for Saturday Spankings tomorrow. There’s always something fun going on around here!
