So how do you like it? How to write and publish a serial.

Posted 18 April 2014 By Polly J Adams

So how do you like it? Do you like to work slowly, dipping in and then pulling back; taking breaks and then picking up where you left off until you hit the big climax? Or is it more a case of wham bam, thank you ma’am? I’m talking about writing serial fiction, of course, and […]

Pollygraph (interviews with erotica authors): Willsin Rowe

Posted 23 November 2013 By Polly J Adams

Tell us about your writing. What kinds of erotica do you write? On my own, I tend to write stuff that’s romantic without actually being Romance. So there’s often an element of the melancholy or the tragic in amongst it all. A little bit gritty on occasion, too. My collaborative writing with Katie Salidas is […]

If you had to sum up your new novel, Reckless Curves, in a single tweet of 140 characters, what would it be? Strong BBW meets Sexy alpha male. Emotionally injured, she tries to resist him but instead falls in love. I’m hooked already – tell me more. I hate the stereotype that seems to be […]

Pollygraph (interviews with erotica writers): Brad Vance

Posted 4 November 2013 By Polly J Adams

Why erotica? I’m a writer, so I’m a very verbal person when it comes to sex, so…it made sense to start transcribing some of my fantasies 🙂 How did you get into it? Aubrey Watt did an AMA on Reddit about being a smut writer.  I thought, hmm, I bet I can do this.  I […]

Writing one-handed

Posted 31 October 2013 By Polly J Adams

My first post went up today, and from now on I’ll be making fortnightly visits, talking about publishing, books, and – it goes […]

Pollygraph (interviews with erotica authors): IM Telling

Posted 27 October 2013 By Polly J Adams

Why erotica and how did you get into it? I self-describe myself as a rebel because I never felt that I fit in with the mainstream during my childhood and early teen years in Middle America. The house I grew up in was just outside the reach of neighborhoods during the late 50s. Because of […]

Top 40 erotica author – but can I shout about it? #writing

Posted 18 October 2013 By Polly J Adams

And so my crawl up Amazon’s erotic authors’ rankings continues: I’m a top 40 erotic author! But can I shout about it? It’s difficult: you see, like the majority of erotica authors, I use a pen-name. It’s not that I’m ashamed of what I do. I use pen-names for my children’s fiction, too, and for […]

Chasing Trends – guest post by Michelle Cary

Posted 7 September 2013 By Polly J Adams

I’ve been writing for a long time. Ten years to be exact. And in those ten years I’ve seen a lot change within the book industry. The big six publishers shunning e-books and their authors, then eventually, with no other choice, begrudgingly embrace the e-book boom. I’ve seen the RWA snub their noses at e-book […]

Now this was a fun one to write! When the lovely Nitzan at Drugs Called Books asked if I could provide a character interview for my guest Insatiable Reads post, I had two obvious choices. I could do a straight interview with the protagonist of The Object of His Desire, Trudy Parsons – a young […]
