On Tuesday, my erotic thriller novella, One Night in Boise will be released on the world. And though I have been published many times, I’m uncharacteristically nervous. I mean, it’s not that big of a deal to talk about sex, right?
This has never happened before, I promise. No, not sex. I’ve never written in a genre where sex is, in fact must be, integral to the story. And because of the nature of the series it is a part of (the City Nights series by Tirgearr Publishing), romance must also play a big role. It turns out that as a suspense thriller writer, and a lover and practice of sex, it really wasn’t that hard.*
*If you have not spotted, and snorted laughter at the innuendos in the first two paragraphs, wait a bit longer. I’m not done yet.
I didn’t see this coming. The idea of the City Nights Series (of which I act as managing editor) and me writing a piece for it came as a challenge and an opportunity. I took on both, with no regrets. For me, the suspense thriller world comes naturally, and sex has always been a part of my stories. I just had to lengthen themes already present, and write them with more detail, while remaining respectful. Not only that, but I had to do research (groan and moan, but it was fun) into the genre and what was trending. I had to read what others were writing, and analyze it. Turns out, writing is just writing, and stories are just stories, no matter what the genre.
Location, location, location. True for business. True for sex. True for damn near anything really. The City Nights series gave me, and gives you, the opportunity to travel the world. To visit every city in a sensual way like no other, and see it through new eyes. I dare you. Come along with us. Don’t be nervous. Let’s talk about sex.
Start with One Night in Boise. But you won’t want to stop there. We’ll be traveling the world. Come join us. You may be amazed what you find.
