Here’s another interview I did about ‘Zora’ on Lit World Interviews. I thank Colleen Chesebro for this wonderful interview. She was a huge supporter of my work then, and continues to be now. At the time she was working on her first book, The Swamp Fairy and now she is a published author too. I am so proud of her. Click here to read our interview.
Welcome to the another edition ofPurple Night Lights, a place to spotlight writers of erotica. We will have intimate conversations about sex, love and writing about it. Today our guest is Velvet Lenae, who used her skills as an author, photographer and poet in the compiling of her erotic books ‘Bare It All’ Volumes 1 and 2. Let’s do this.
LL: How did you come up with the idea to author a book where you are the photographer, writer of short erotic tales and poetry?
VL: Although Photography came first, currently, writing was a first love in the past. I kind of gave up the idea of writing professionally, coming out of high school. In the photography world, I love boudoir and I was looking to expand on it, making it a specialty. In the process of doing that, I…
Guess what? Ok, give up yet? I’ll tell you. Your girl is featured on Eliza David’s blog in her Author Spotlight feature. I talked about my series The WanderLynn Experience and even provided an excerpt so you can check out my writing style. I had a great time answering the questions for this interview. Check it out and let me know what you think.
This week’s Wise Words come from motivational speaker and author, John Maxwell. He usually speaks about leadership and business, however his words can be used in everyday life as well. I was first introduced to his work when I was working as a manager for a Fortune 500 company in Atlanta. He had given a speech to the executives and they purchased books for middle management. I found so much truth in his words and have been a fan ever since. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from him:
If you have the extra time, I would advise you to watch this video of his Top 10 Rules for Success. #www
Many of you who follow the blog know one of my idols is Pat Head Summitt. I could go on and on about how this lady affected my life, but that would only bore you. What I will do is let her words speak for themselves. Pat passed away last year in June, but her dream to find a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease is still alive and well with the opening of the Pat Summitt Clinic. This horrible disease took the two greatest ladies I had in my life last year within 6 months of each other. I want a cure for this so families do not have to watch their loved ones suffer. I urge you to get involved. Volunteer, donate, organize a walk or just spread the word. Click here to see all of the great things the Pat Summitt Foundation is doing.
This week we delve into the challenging world of Menage Romance. However, this book could also double as my choice for Stepbrother. I know this type of story borders on immorality, but think about it… They really aren’t hurting anybody, and they aren’t blood related so there is no incest going on. The book I chose to read for this sub-genre is ‘Two For One” by Amy Brent.
Here’s what I think:
** spoiler alert ** This book was about a girl who I believe was a teenager still in high school. Sorry there were some inconsistencies in the story that were a bit confusing. Anyway her mom married this handsome man and on their honeymoon she died of an allergic reaction. The husband was rich and decided to raise the girl on his own. After the girl was 16 she finds out she has stepbrothers and they…
