While speaking of my writing, I'd like to share this post that I recently put on my FB page about my recently published erotica novel, The Wikomsette:
Perhaps I'm blind that I didn't see how controversial my first novel would be to some readers. Certainly there is conflict in the story that was meant to be just that, conflict. But at the most basic premise, a woman is thrown into a situation where she is expected to have quite a few husbands. The general outcry from readers who were put off, is "What if she'd said, 'no'? Then she's forced into this situation, and that's just wrong!" Well, here's what I'd like to say about that: If she'd said 'no', there would have been no story. But, because she ends up embracing this position (and several others, ha ha), this is a sexual fantasy novel. A woman gets to be with many attractive men, without being negatively labeled. At it's heart, this is a story of a woman who loves men, emotionally and physically, and (with one exception, see 'conflict' reference) it's all good for her. So a reader can "what if" all they like, but that is not the 'reality' so to speak, of this story. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. ~Em
With holidays and other special events around the corner, I may not be blogging quite as often in the next few weeks, but I can still be found regularly on FB and Twitter! Feel free to pop in, say hi, and share a little something about yourself. Perhaps what some of your favorite reads are? Blessings to all!
