From Jessa: Today we have Elizabeth Darvill with us. I met Elizabeth at the Emerald City Writers Conference in Seattle WA before she sold. So I can say “I knew her when”! Even then, she was walking the talk — and dressing the part! Now her first book LOVE IN A TIME OF STEAM comes out July 15 and is available for preorder here. Congratulations, Elizabeth!
Hello! I am so pleased to be here at Silk and Shadows! I was trying to think of something profound today….but alas that is just not my style….so I thought I would tell you a little confession. It is something I like to do…in public….
I ADORE writing my sex scenes in public places! Yes, it is a bit juvenile, but it makes it decadently naughty and never fails to inspire! I highly suggest it if you are dreading a sex scene or are just feeling as if it doesn’t have enough spark. It is very much like any relationship. You have to be a little juvenile and naughty and try new things to keep the energy and passion alive. So doing it at your desk, table, couch wherever you “normally” write those steamy pages, day after day, will get a little monotonous. So, go to a coffee shop, go to the library, sometimes doing it while a nice clean activity(church, chess club, etc) is happening at the table next to you, makes it extra fun! Be creative! Secretly knowing you are writing steamy action while others mill about is a thrill. Do it…I dare you!
Comment with ways you like to write (Editor’s note: Or read!) your sex scenes! One commenter will win a fun promo packet!
Have a lovely, naughty day!
Love in a Time of Steam – Blurb
Ashlyn hasn’t seen Gray her former lover in five long years. Not since the day he
believed her to be a traitor to the military cause they both served.
Now as the volatile nature of their planet is reaching a fevered pitch, and the war
over water to run their steam-powered technology is threatening all beings, she must face him once more.
Despite her intense hatred towards Gray, Ashlyn can’t let the father of her child
be murdered by General Dagnus, the leader of the opposing army. Risking her life, Ashlyn lays everything on the line to save the man that betrayed her once. As they
work together to survive, will they be able to rekindle the passion they once shared?
