I'm embarrassed about how infrequently I've updated my blog of late, but now have been sharing plenty of news over the past two days.
But what have I been up to, writing-wise?
Last summer while I was waiting for Redemption edits, a friend challenged me to write something I'd never written before: erotica.
Sure, I could do this, right?
Wrong. The story grew a plot. And more plot. And yet more plot.
And spawned three more stories.
Now, instead of a short story, I had four novellas, but in marketing discussions, I didn't want to sell them as four novellas, since they shared a story arc and readers would be paying more for the individual stories than for a novel with the same word count.
I couldn't do that to them, so I pieced it together, smoothed the edges, and am now in the final stages of creation with A Bear Walks Into a Bar.
It's got shifters, lots of intimate scenes (many more than I normally write, but it's integral to the story) and, drum roll please....
A non-monogamous couple.
Oh, wait! Where are you going? Come back! I didn't say they were cheaters, but part of their shifter culture involves group sex with others, for comfort, discipline, bonding, etc.
Look for A Bear Walks Into a Bar to release in late December or early January, from Rocky Ridge Books.
Sounds interesting. Look forward to reading it.ReplyDelete
Thank you. It's unlike anything I've written before, but my crit partners assure me it's still very much an Eden Winters book.Delete
