It was my first ever male point of view book. Then I released the book, and everyone said OMG the way you write male POV is sensational. But I still wasn't convinced I could do an m/m romance. I mean I'm a grandmother and I haven't led that racy of life...OK, it's been wild at times, I WAS young once, but we'll talk about that in another blog post...and then I got invited to do Irrevocably Claimed Anthology and in an anthology you can push your craft and go where you haven't gone before. And I was chatting with the incredible Andrea Smith, USA Today Bestselling author, and I was brainstorming ideas about a lesbian erotica novella. And she loved my bachelorette party story and she said write it. So I committed to doing the anthology but I was working on my gritty and strong new mellinium Kaley in The Girl of Sand & Fog, so I hadn't started writing it. I still hadn't comitted to the other anthologies in January and February 2016 because it would be M/M and I wasn't sure I could do F/F.
When I finished, I sent out my first F/F Romance, The Encounter, to be read by people I respect and I was blown away by their response. They liked it so much, they wanted to included it as a bonus Novella for a January 2016 Anthology. Well, that floored me. And granny thought, well heck, if I can do f/f maybe I can do m/m romance. And writing f/f was amazing fun. A nice break from tortured young girls. So yes, it's true. I'm releasing a lesbian erotic romance on November 6th. I'm extremely proud of it. It is for someone I love, my ex-sister-in-law, who after 25 years of marriage came out of the closet (darlings we're older in my family so don't be judgmental about it taking her a while)decided to live happy and recently found her forever wife.
So, why this long story. I don't remember. Oh yes, I have my first lesbian erotic romance releasing November 6th, then for my dear, darling, new friend Zac, the most talented stage actor in all Northern California, a man of discerning taste because he thinks I'm wonderful, I am releasing not only one M/M romance, but two next year. It seems to me that I couldn't say I believed in love unless I wrote(to the best of my abilities) about all love.
And as ever darlings I wish you peace.
