Today at All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP), we end September with one final juicy taste of our SEX & WRITING discussion as best-selling author Kayla Perrin offers us a glimpse into her latest novel, OBSESSION!

When Sophie Gibson’s husband confesses to an affair, she is enraged and devastated. And when her husband suggests that she settle the score by having an affair of her own, Sophie isn’t interested.  But soon the idea of sex as payback intrigues her, and out on the town she meets Peter. She soon begins an affair with him, but Peter’s love turns obsessive. And when Sophie ends their affair, Peter won’t take no for an answer. Because if he can’t have her, no one can.

So, what does Kayla think about sex and writing?  Head over to ALL THE BLOG’S A PAGE today to read her take, and check out the OBSESSION excerpt!

Also, make sure to check out authors Will Belegon, Rachelle Chase, Lauren Dane, and Zetta Brown on AtBaP, too, as they both offer their thoughts on sex & writing!

Author Will Belegon Talks SEX & WRITING Today! September 29, 2008

Today at All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP), we finally bring you a MAN’S perspective on SEX & WRITING as erotic author Will Belegon holds court.

For the month of September, AtBaP authors are talking about SEX; here’s the question that was posed:  Is sex an important component to develop in your writing? How are you able to weave it into a work AND also have a strong plot development?


Sex is a primary force,
Will states. It always will be. So it can be used as motivation and therefore be intricately tied to plot. And of course, in erotica, sex may actually be the plot.

Sex is also a very good way to reveal character. A Romeo Void song from the eighties says “I might like you better if we slept together” but in writing I use a variant. I might know you better if we slept together. A person or character who is literally naked is often metaphorically so as well. Small actions can be magnified to reveal larger truths. For example, think of the differences that can be revealed by a light switch. In many situations, the most you might be able to reveal about a character through the use of a light switch is whether or not they feel it is important to conserve energy. (Of course, having said this I can now think of many other ways to use it… but we’ll address that another time.)

Author Rachelle Chase holds CLASS on how to make your writing sexy! September 19, 2008

Today at All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP), Rachelle Chase, author of SIN CLUB, holds class as she talks about sex and writing…and offers a little contest to those who can pen some sexy stuff, too!

For the month of September, AtBaP authors are talking about SEX; here’s the question that was posed:  Is sex an important component to develop in your writing? How are you able to weave it into a work AND also have a strong plot development?

Rachelle begins her discussion by stating, “I write erotic romance, so sex is VERY important. The way I weave it into the story and have strong plot development is by making sex a part of the story.

When my characters are doing nonsexual things or are talking about nonsexual things, there are sexual undertones. When my characters are having sex, the sex is moving the story forward – meaning, the hero and heroine are bringing their baggage, fears, dreams, etc. into the bedroom – and after sex, both are changed in some way. This change sends them down a new path, until their new beliefs about themselves are challenged up to and during the next sex scene, which then starts another change-and-down-a-new page chain of events, and so on. Until all the necessary change has occurred and my characters have become “new” people at the end.”

What ELSE does Rachelle have to say about sex, writing, and her novel?  Head over to ALL THE BLOG’S A PAGE today to read the rest of her response…and see how YOU can win a copy of SIN CLUB…and another gift, 🙂

Today at All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP), Lauren Dane, author of FATED, talks about sex and writing!

For the month of September, AtBaP authors are talking about SEX; here’s the question that was posed:  Is sex an important component to develop in your writing? How are you able to weave it into a work AND also have a strong plot development?

Among other things – all of them juicy and frank, Lauren replied: “In truth, sex is wonderful material for a story. It’s rife with possibilities. Not just love and joy but anger, loss, connection, guilt, grief – it’s not only a great vehicle for emotion but physical action as well. An author can really show you things about her characters through a really well done, well placed sex scene.”

What ELSE does Lauren have to say about sex, writing, and her novel?  Head over to ALL THE BLOG’S A PAGE today to read the rest of her response…and also be sure to see what author Zetta Brown (Messalina – Devourer of Men) has to say about sex & writing, too!

Today at All the Blog’s a Page (AtBaP), Zetta Brown, author of Messalina – Devourer of Men, talks about sex and writing!

Messalina – Devourer of Men received a GREAT Book Bytes review from ChickLitGurrl: I absolutely loved this book! Didn’t want to put it down. It’s unique, it has hot sex (with a purpose), and the characters are like some I’ve never seen in books before. The first chapter alone will get you in the mood…in more ways than one.
Messalina: Devourer of Men has much HEAT and much HEART. It’s worth the buy! I’m looking forward to seeing what Zetta Brown puts out next.
