My agent helps me, these days, but when I first started out, I sent a 4th or 5th draft to beta readers and critique partners to see if I was hitting the right note. Aside from those major signposts, I mostly write by the seat of my pants, a scene at a time. Every writer has a different process, and sometimes, every book has a different process. A: This book is wonderfully sexy, and I adore they way the sex scenes are erotic, passionate, fully realized, and yet more evocative than explicit.
I keep thinking about ripe plums. Is that something you think about? Do you find you have a lot of male fans relative to other romance writers? D: Oh, yes. I was quite surprised, the first time I saw the cover of Wicked as They Come, because I never imagined it would be a book with a half-naked dude on it. A: One of the things that I really enjoyed is the ick-factor as sexy—for example when Criminy touches Letitia without gloves.
There are a few other places you play with sexy ick in the book, and I love it. Does it come naturally? Do you have to rein yourself in? D: Thank you!
I toned it down in the sequels. But I will say that balancing out that ick factor is my need for consent in writing sex. As a rape victim, that gives me much more freedom to enjoy sex scenes. A: Thanks for sharing how an awful personal experience shapes your writing. I appreciate you being open about that—to me real, honest conversations about sexuality and even sexual violence are one of most amazing things about what comes of the romance genre. D: Aw, thanks! Would you believe Tish originally had a husband and small child?
A: Yay! Thanks again for joining us! Delilah S. Bring cupcakes. An excellent survey of various styles. Publisher: A. Bell: This group of prints illustrates well the use of star shaped fortifications, which became the standard in response to the extensive use of artillery beginning in the 15th century. Also pictured are diagrams of a catapult and a rather crude ballista, an example of a keep with several curtain walls, and a diagram of the foundation of a typical wall.click
