Just a quick reminder that Saying it, the first in the Paley Office Park Romance Novellas, a steamy erotic series, will be $0.99 only for a few more days, and then will be back to its regular price of $3.99. Sizzling sexiness awaits…
I jokingly refer to working on erotica as “writing my smut.” I think the word “smut,” itself, is a funny word, evoking an image of a granny in an afghan and glasses on a chain waggling her finger with disapproval.
We’ve been conditioned to think of sex as a taboo subject, and it often makes us uncomfortable. When something is given that kind of label, it seems to slide into the realm of “good” and “bad,” of “virtuous” and not so.
Like “smut” and “romance.” Is it the arousing nature of erotica that divides it from straight romance? Is it the language? When you think about it, romance takes you to the same place, it just doesn’t give you all the steamy details.
Like any romance, or most fiction, really, erotica is about connection. It reveals a facet of a character’s life, one that is usually hidden, while taking the reader on a vicarious, sensual adventure. It’s not only sex for sex’s sake – though there’s not a thing wrong with that – but sex as it’s experienced by the characters, through the characters.
We are all curious about what happens behind closed doors, and erotica opens them, offering the opportunity to see that human desire takes many forms and is expressed many ways. Despite my amusement with the word “smut,” it implies a kind of dirtiness in simply thinking about sex, and sex does not have to be dirty.
Unless you want it to be.
For a limited time, Saying it, the first Paley Office Park Romance Novella, will be just $0.99. Peek inside Mackenzie & Colton’s steamy erotic romp, and maybe inspire some sexy times of your own.
The price change is live today, September 9, 2013, but it won’t be $0.99 for long. Enjoy.
