It’s June. Summer is here and the heat is making clothing more optional by the day. It’s a wonderful time for erotica romance stories. For an aspiring writer, like myself, the presence of heat and bikinis is always an inspiration. For those still looking to heat things up, “Passion Relapse” is still on sale. Whether you’re on the beach or lying naked in bed, as I often do, it’s a great way to heat up your summer.
While I’m still going to push “Passion Relapse” at every turn, rest assured I’m still hard at work on my next novel. A couple months ago, I talked about my plans for future novels. In those plans, I left this teaser.
Have you ever been trapped? Has your life ever been stuck on a dark path from which you cannot escape? Well, a beautiful young woman from a dying town was on such a path. Her life seemed set. She’d long since stopped trying to avoid it. Then, one fateful night, someone came to her in her time of greatest need. That someone became her angel, saving her from a cruel fate. Now determined to escape the path that had trapped her, she seeks to forge a new life, one that she hopes will lead her back into the arms of her angel.
At the time, that idea was still in development. I had the idea for a story. I had the overall structure and theme of it. I just needed to polish it off with a little sexy frosting to ensure it fits the same sexy themes as “Passion Relapse.”
Well, I’ve since finished polishing and sent the first draft to Totally Entwined Group. A couple days ago, I got a response and I think it was a positive response. They didn’t automatically tag it as a best seller from the beginning, which would’ve been pushing it. However, they didn’t hate it either and that counts as a victory in my book.
They did ask me to make a few edits, though, which is promising. I was asked to do the same thing when they first responded on “Passion Relapse.” These edits were minor, though. Compared to the ones I had to make for “Passion Relapse,” they weren’t too big a deal and didn’t change the overall substance of the story.
Now, that’s still not a guarantee that Totally Entwined Group accept it. After another read-through, they may decide that this novel just isn’t what they’re looking for. I’m fully prepared for that possibility. I hope it doesn’t come to that, but I’m bracing myself in case it does.
For now, I’m hoping that this novel will offer a similar appeal to those who enjoyed “Passion Relapse.” There’s plenty of heart, drama, and sexy moments to go around in this story. I hope to work with Totally Entwined Group to get it out there by the end of the year. Until then, I’ll just keep drawing inspiration from summer heat and sexy bikinis.
