First a quick mention for my web site: www.dollhouse-books.com. There’s a full catalogue of all my books with regular new released updates and an outline synopsis of each one. You can also sign up for my ‘New Release Newsletter,’ and receive a free short story or just take a good look around.
So, the other day I happened to mention within my group on Goodreads that; ‘My books were my mark I’d leave for posterity.’ A fellow author replied that; ‘Many people enjoy your books, you give them great pleasure.’ That set me to thinking.
As writers of Erotica, I guess we have to go the extra mile, How come? Well like other writers we have to produce a good story. It has to have believable characters that are loved or hated and also be well written, but then we add an extra ingredient to the mix, lust!
Yep, we need to spice up our stories to a high degree because unlike thriller writers or the Dean Koontz’s of this world, or even those who write vanilla romances, our readers expect us to add that extra arousal factor to our work, because if we don’t they feel let down afterward, somehow deflated. That’s not what erotica is all about, it’s the capacity to get our readers in the right mood, to force them to take a break from the read because they are excited, to fan the flames that our work sparks into life that marks the good erotic writer from the rest.
Do my books fit the bill? Well when my readers tell me that they ‘Need to store my books in the fridge,’ or ‘To have their cooling fans on whilst reading them’ I reckon they surely do. And if they then do go on to get extra pleasure from my reads, whether alone or with a partner, then I guess I’ve added that extra spice to my stories and done a good job.
So what of me?
Charlie B. is my pen name. I’m a proud Brit living just to the South East of London. If you’re a member of Goodreads then you can check me out there on my author profile page. I also run a Goodreads group called, ‘Hotel Eroticana,’ which has some of the raciest discussions on Goodreads, and lots of fun contributors as well from right across the globe. I have been writing sexy literature for many years as a private pastime and have now been self-publishing my books since January 2013 on Amazon for your enjoyment. I try to put out a new title each month and I believe in giving my readers value for their money. All my books are around 100 plus pages long, not 20 or 30 pages as are many of the books listed on here. Please think about that when you look to buy your next book.
Thank you, Charlie B.
