Good morning, boys n’ girls! I hope you’re all having a most restful weekend. I got to thinking that perhaps I’ve used nearly ALL of “Second Skin” in six sentence increments, so I’ve decided this week to spice things up a bit with my newest WIP. “Bloodflowers” is an erotic horror piece about a very unsparkly vampire and the object of his affection. Enjoy and comment, as I do seek reassurance that I’m not crazy…
“No no…” the vampire chuckled with an overly pleasant tone. “We’ve only just met, friend.” He reached down and grabbed Toboggan Man by the throat, lifting him high off the ground. “It wouldn’t be polite not to have you for dinner.” Before he could scream, the vampire bashed him twice against the bricks behind him, shattering his skull and leaving fragments of gray matter and bone behind. As the man fell limp in his grasp, the vampire stole another look at the girl and saw that she was dazed with the shock.
So I promise there will eventually be some erotic with that horror…
Happy Thursday, boys n’ girls! And welcome to the inaugural post of The Belle’s Spotlight Thursdays! Each week I’ll be spotlighting some naughty writer chick or kinky writer dude and subjecting them to the third degree. This week, the spotlight shines on my best friend in the world, writer Siobhan Kincade. Siobhan has published 2 stories with Sugar and Spice Press, the latest of which, “She-Wolf” should be coming out this fall. She’s also self-published one of the most intense horror stories I’ve ever read, “Haunted” (check it out on Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble) under her other name, S.H. Roddey. Not to mention, she’s my ever-faithful and long-suffering writing partner. Without further ado….
Erotica, Smut Peddling, and Pornography
Lexxx told me I had to be interesting today, so I sat downand made a list of all of the things I could possibly talk about. I’m not interesting, though… I swear I’mnot. A few witty comments and theoccasional cheap shot do not an interesting read make.
So I worried over it. I pondered and I struggled and whined and whimpered. I thought about playing the sexy vixen (I soam not that girl), or maybe the Grammar Nazi that slaps everyone’s wrists forimproper punctuation (yeah, I’ve done that), or even the shameless plugger thatlists strings of things for everyone to OMGGOBUYITRIGHTNOW…
Seeing as how we’re all eroticists here, I decided to pullout the taboo topic of “porn vs. erotica” and run with it. It’s only fitting, because there are many,many, many people out there who don’t understand their sad misconceptions.
Yes, erotica is a form of pornography. Or rather, I choose to think of pornographyas a form of erotica. Pornography is thedepiction of a sex act, be it visual or verbal. It is the foreplay, the penetration, and the climax. It’s what multitudes of people use to getoff.
Erotica is more than that. While erotica does involve the graphic depiction of the sex act, it
is almost always accompanied by an emotional entanglement, a scintillatinglead-up, and a “morning after” scenario.
Raise your hand if you have ever watched a porn video. Don’t worry…nobody can see you but me. And I’ll know if you’re lying.
Okay, put your hand down now. No, not that far. Keep them where I can see them, please.
So, since you’ve watched the porn flick, you know that itstarts with some corny intro, and concludes with a money shot. Since you read erotica (and I know you do,otherwise you wouldn’t be trolling me on Lexxx’s blog), you know that it startslong before said corny intro, and ends well after the girl wipes the jizz offher boobs.
Erotic writing is more about the personal connection thanthe act itself. It touches on the basichuman instinct to fornicate, but takes that instinct a step farther into thesubconscious need for personal connection. In erotic fiction, the sex very, very rarely comes without that spark, or some other catalyst thatpushes those two people toward each other.
Erotic writing doesn’t end when the guy blows his load allover his partner. It follows on into thefallout of the characters’ actions. Itgets into the female need to nest, or the male need to dominate. It focuses on the drive of two people tocling to each other despite adversity. It gives fetishists a way to prove that they have emotions beyond thespankings and toe-sucking. It givessame-sex couples the ability to showcase their love for each other in anon-judgmental environment.
Over all, it gives the people involved in the depicted sexact the ability to actually be people.
Most of us who write erotica have been called somethingnasty in the past. Pornographers…smutpeddlers… Why yes, yes we are. If we’regoing to be given the titles, I say we wear them proudly. Consider them badges of honor. Look the naysayers in the eye, hold our headshigh, and admit:
Yes, we enjoy sex. Yes, we want happy endings. Yes we believe the two can mesh.
What of it?
So there you have it, the ravings of a sex-crazed lunatic. Also known as, my friend Siobhan Kincade. But the fun doesn’t have to end here. Siobhan can be found all over the internet:
Greets y’all! Today I will be guest blogging over at Sinful Writings ( http://www.sinfulwritings.com/authorblog.html )! Come join me and the beautiful ladies over there for some saucy, hot talk about the best way to get all your itches scratched. In addition, over here on The Southern Belle from Hell, I am being joined by the lovely Siobhan Kincade. Don’t miss a peep!
Never one for procrastination *coughbullshitcough*, I’m handing out a post tonight to let you know about TWO… count em, TWO blogging events coming up tomorrow, August 25th. First off, I will be guesting over at Sinful Writings (http://www.sinfulwritings.com/ ) tomorrow. And I have to say… the post is very very naughty. All I’m saying is that vibrators play a major role. I will also have an author interview up that answers all the questions you’ve ever wanted to know about me but were afraid to ask… and then some. Secondly, my good friend Siobhan Kincade will be guest blogging HERE! She’s talking about the difference between porn and erotica and of course has posted a tasty little morsel for your reading pleasure. Be sure to stop by both places tomorrow and leave a comment! See you all soon!!
Hey people! I’m on this crazy unofficial blog tour this week and it continues at my fabulous friend, Blak Rayne’s blog, “Blak Rayne Books.” Today I’ll be talking about the parts of the male anatomy that I find just too yummy for words. I’m also giving out a little tiny taste of Second Skin for your reading pleasure. So bounce on over to http://blakraynebooks.blogspot.com/?zx=362ae9962272350b and check me out!
Yes, my lovelies… its that time of the week. Time for SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY!! Muwahahaha! This week’s spotlight is yes, from my new release, “Second Skin”! Its been out a week and I’ve heard some positive things! I hope they aren’t just blowing sunshine. Anyway, check out the book. And if I’m not convincing enough….
With a firm hand, he grasped his cock, so hard that the skin looked strained to bursting, down at the base. He glanced up at me teasingly as if to ask if this was what I’d been wanting. I giggled at his playful gesture and rubbed my own sex obscenely in response. He slid his body over mine,
still holding himself and absently stroking. Using just the tip, he traced the line of my slit, tormenting me with such a light caress. I groaned and reached down, hoping to guide him inside, but he wasn’t so gullible.
Ah well… you can’t go wrong with steamy sex. Here’s your instructions: 1. Go over to http://www.sugarnspicepress.com and buy a copy of “Second Skin” for your eReader or phone. 2. Run a warm bath. 3. Enjoy. 😛
Hello boys n’ girls! Its Saturday morning and I have officially survived the first week of school! I have the sweetest little class and I’m so happy to be their teacher this year. I know… that sounds weird coming from foul-mouthed little me. But I do love being a teacher, even when its frustrating.
Speaking of frustration… I can’t seem to make it over to see Fright Night this weekend. I must remedy that. I mean, I don’t like Colin Ferrell– despite his Irish accent. I dunno why, but he always looks dirty to me. But what do I know, I prefer Cillian Murphy. Or as my sister Jess refers to him, “that Irish girl.” But what can I say– I have a thing for big blue eyes, sharp cheekbones and accents. But I digress. I really want to see Fright Night this weekend. It just looks so good and gory and fun. PLUS, it has Dr. Who in guyliner. The good news is, my good friend Siobhan Kincade and I are going to get to spend a day writing today. I just love taking off for the coffeeshop with my laptop. Its probably my favorite thing to do. I know– NERD.
In other news, my unofficial blog tour continues today at the awesome Mary Quast’s blog—http://maryquast.blogspot.com/. I’ll be talking about the connection between sex and fear, along with a very hot snippet of an oldie, but goodie by me, Hellsong.
Thiswas my very first novel that I released last October– and still, I feel, the best thing I’ve ever written. It has some definite elements of horror along with some very sexy scenes between an angel and a demon. So be sure to come on over and see me!
Alright, no more blogging for me. Its back to the old writing grindstone. I hope to have two more submissions by the end of the month. Nothing but work, work, work for me. See ya later, kittens!
As I was sitting in my classroom today, waiting for all the new kiddos and their parents to arrive for orientation, I was reading my email on my phone and I noticed that so many people were posting to their blogs this morning. So I figured I’d better not let them make me look bad. So here I am, a busy little bee taking a break to say hello to the masses. So how are ya? Doing well?
Its been several days since “Second Skin” released and I’m really curious to see how well its selling. Of course no one can really know until the royalty statement comes in, but I’m anxious. I really love that story and it really has some of the better sex scenes I’ve ever written. So if you judge a story by how hot the erotica is, I can vouch for it. I mean, Jack, the hero, made me pretty hot while I was writing it. *fans self*
Since I’ve got this new release, I’ve booked several guest blogs for the coming weeks. So I thought I’d give you a little schedule so you can plan your blog crawling accordingly:
I have several more coming up in October and November. I’ll keep you posted on those as they draw closer. Also, starting week after next, I’ll be featuring a hot face in Erotic Romance every Thursday here at the Southern Belle. Coming up on August 25th, my inaugural guest blogger and guinea pig will be none other than my bestie, Siobhan Kincade! Siobhan is the author of “Marked,” available NOW at Sugar and Spice Press as well as upcoming releases in February from Rebel Ink and “She-Wolf,” also from Sugar and Spice. She’s been my long-suffering writing partner for years and I’m really excited to showcase her on my blog. So stay tuned!
Finally, thank you so much to all of your who have been reading and commenting on my blog. I know that at times I get so busy that I forget to comment back to every single post, but I do read them and they do make me smile. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I promise to be better about commenting back. I’ve also been completely blown away by the SSS posts that I’ve seen the last couple of weeks. My Nook is positively bursting with new hot reads!!
Alright, I’m going to stop babbling now. I will leave you with a tiny little excerpt of “Second Skin” since you’ve been so nice to bear with me through this long-assed post. See you soon, kittens—
Suddenly he pulled away and brought his fingertips to his lips. My stomach rolled with contained arousal as I watched him with ravenous eyes. He brushed the fingertips along the inside of his lip and tasted my spicy sweet essence, his eyes closing as if trapped in the ecstasy of some forbidden dream. He offered the digit to me and I stared up at him hesitantly. Not waiting for my answer, he drew his finger over my mouth, wanting me to taste my own sexuality. The flavor was complex and
sensual and I was actually disappointed when the last of it was gone. He laughed quietly to himself and leaned over to kiss me again. I was so thankful for his mouth that I groaned audibly when
his tongue found mine and began to dance. Over and over they stirred until I felt that my mouth was another sex, opening wider to receive his torturous pleasure.
Yes, my lovelies. Yesterday, my new short, “Second Skin”dropped in to Sugar and Spice Press! So I thought that this Sunday,
I’d give you a little more, just to whet your appetite. If you like what you see, don’t forget to stop over at Sugar and Spice: http://www.sugarnspicepress.com/ and download yourself a copy. I can promise its way hotter in its entirety. So without further ado….
I nodded obediently and shivered as he took my hand, leading it to the belt around his waist. I pulled at the leather, blindly groping around in the dark. The beating of the waves against the rocks was getting louder and I could feel that the tide was coming in, counting down the minutes of our time together. Soon the rock on which we lay was going to be devoured by the sea, carrying him back to wherever he came from. As he’d said, time was short and it made me even more urgent to join my body to his. I fumbled with the button on his pants until I was whimpering with frustration and he pushed my hands away.
