This week’s featured erotic historical romance author is KT Grant, who writes lesbian historical romance. Check out her journey here:

This Time Now coverWhen I decided I wanted to be a published author, I wanted to write romance. I wasn’t sure about the sensuality factor or which type of romance sub-genre I would write, but I knew it would have a happily ever after at the end. In 2010, I accomplished my dream of becoming a publishing author.… [Read more...]

Sabrina York: Erotic Historical Romance Feature

Sabrina York is back today, this time talking about how she fell into erotic historical romance. It seems to be a popular problem! Welcome back Sabrina:

First of all, let’s get one thing straight. I never intended to be an erotic romance author. I was minding my own business, writing historical and contemporary romance that didn’t sell, when all of a sudden, right out of the blue, some editor decided she liked my work.

What the hell is up with that?… [Read more...]

S.A. Meade: Erotic Historical Romance Monday

This week’s featured erotic historical author is S.A. Meade who writes M/M erotic romance. I love her question because well, I ask myself the same one all the time. So without further ado, here is S.A. Meade:

Oh lordy, where do I start?

darknessatendersley_800I have never written a mystery. I had never thought about writing a mystery but I needed some kind of conflict for ‘Darkness at Endersley’ so mystery it was. Here is a snippet, a scene where trouble finally arrives at Endersley and poor Joshua is the one who has to deal with the consequences.… [Read more...]

Ava March: Erotic Historical Romance Monday

One of the coolest parts about the current climate in publishing AND in the world in general is that books are being published that authors have always been told would “never work” or “never sell”. Obviously not true. While stories with same-sex couples have always existed, they are becoming increasingly popular and even published by mainstream publishers. I think it’s kind of awesome. Today’s guest author, Ava March, tells us all about this trend and why it works so well with readers. [Read more...]

THE ACCIDENTAL EROTICA WRITER

by Sandrine O’Shea

Courtesan_72_we-330I didn’t intend to become an erotica writer.  The historical romances I wrote under my own name (Leslie O’Grady) and as Lindsay Chase had love scenes that were detailed and explicit, but not steamy.

Then I had this wild idea to write about a courtesan in 1890’s Paris. … [Read more...]
