So....erotic fiction huh?
Yeah, that's what I said to. I've been a writer for several years now having found homes for my crime, western and horror fiction in both the US & England.
I've got a 1930's prohibition era crime story coming out in a crime anthology tomorrow and two westerns in another Friday.
But erotic fiction?
Yeah. I always tend to lean toward romance with a lot of my stories getting turned down by the harder hitting crime publications as being too soft, to romantic?
A while back i started into a new story with no outline (as is usual for me) and I had to make a decision...do I let the kid fall for the old gal that lived next door?
I started to wonder what would happen if the kid fell for the old gal and she invited him in. I could have still turned it into a crime story maybe only eluding to the sex that might be going on, but I thought 'Fuck those guys' I wanted to see the story would go.
I was both surprised at how the story turned out and how dirty it got.
The first publisher that I sent it to turned it down, but was supportive at the same time. Right away i sent it to another (Solstice Publishing) and they replied with a contract for the story attached.
I don't really know how you erotic genre folks get when you get a story accepted, but I'm fucking stoked. And happy to be working with the folks at Solstice.
