My Writing Process

Tina Christopher asked me to be on this blog hop with her. Of course I said yes! Next week look for Serena Shay‘s post on her writing topic

So, my writing process. Here goes.

1) What am I working on?
Right now I’m finishing up edits for my release with HarlequinE coming this Sept or Oct. It’s an erotic romance, menage. Set in a tropical climate. Not only the weather is hot, so are the guys!
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I have no idea. We are all different. But to actually say how is something I couldn’t put my finger on. If anything though, my editor says “your writing is on fire” :)  meaning the sex scenes. *blushes*
3) Why do I write what I do?
It was by fluke really. My first book was No Fantasy Required. I wrote it without the intention of it being so hot. But, when it was accepted and after edits, I started my second story, Being Ariana. It was also a hot story and then it just seemed to flow organically and the rest is history. Although a story I will be working on after the edits on She Wants It won’t be erotic. It will be hot though (can’t seem to get away from that :) )
My January 2014 release Four For the Show. An erotic adventure where our heroine is treated to sexual delights by three men and we have some male/male action going on too.

4) How does your writing process work?
Again, it’s one of those things that never seems to be the same. When I have an idea for a story, and I do have lots, I’ll send myself an email with the title or scene or whatever it was the popped into my brain. Sometimes I can’t let it go and have to write a few thousand words to get it out of me.
I try to write every day. Last year wasn’t that great though after my mom died and my writing just didn’t seem to be there. I’m getting back into the swing of things and hoping to get a lot done this year.
If I focus, I can write 1000 words on my lunch. When I get home, I like to write from 2 – 6 for another 2000 words. Then I’ve accomplished 3000 words a day plus work full time. If I accomplish this then I feel a little better and less guilty for doing other things in the evening.
I am a procrastinator. It’s really hard to shake too. Like I’m doing this blog at 4pm on Sunday when I should have had it wrapped up days ago!
So remember to visit Serena next week when she tells you about her writing process on 17th March.
Serena Shay took to writing out her fantasies in a desperate bid to bring the voices in her head to life and as a way to indulge her paranormal desires.

About Lea Barrymire

Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rugrats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She’s slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life’s adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.

When Lea isn’t reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

Blurb: Willie Krenshaw wanted nothing more than a few minutes watching the waters of Lake Erie after a long workday. What she ended up with was a drugged male vampire and an itch to be a Good Samaritan.

 

When her inner kitty starts sniffing around at the male she’s helping, she knows Fate’s evil sense of humor is in full swing. Being a shifter-vampire hybrid is hard enough, but having a male vampire as her fated mate is just too much.

 

Nickola, the vampire she assists, finds her breathtaking and does all he can to push Fate’s agenda.

 

Stephen is the male vampire Nickola is investigating for the Council. He takes aim at the couple, intent on pulling Nick to his side or killing him. Between Stephen’s scheming and the Council’s interest in Willie, can they survive the chaos long enough to test the depths of their passions?

Excerpt

Willie couldn’t stop her body from responding. Every cell cried out with greed for his touch. His scent enveloped her mind in a hot, sexual stupor. With the slight pain from the nibble on her collarbone, her body took over. She reacted with instinctual need. No more thought. No more worrying about claiming her mate. She needed to feel his body against hers. Needed to feel his shaft sliding through her folds and pumping into her, spilling his seed deep inside her body. A hot rush of want flowed through her body, making her gasp and squirm in his arms. The already soaked panties she wore were drenched with new arousal. She wrapped her legs around his waist, welcoming him further into the cradle of her body. She rocked against him, grinding her pussy against his cock trying to get the sensation she craved. She could feel the tightening of her clit with each pulse of their pelvises. His hands moved over her sides, sliding under her shirt, sending passion threading through her body. She flexed her back, trying to coax his wandering hands to her aching breasts. They wanted his hands on them, plucking and kneading her flesh. With a satisfied sigh, she threw her head back as his fingers finally encircled her engorged nipple, pinching and twisting. The slight pain ramped up her passion. She groaned when his fingers left her breasts, only to be replaced by his mouth. Hot licks of desire flicked across her nipples as he suckled. Each pull of his mouth made her climb closer to a release.

Her hands threaded through his hair pulling his mouth to hers. She licked along his lips until he opened his lips, inviting her inside the warm depths of his mouth. Their tongues twined together and slid along each other. One of his hands caressed her back and pulled her closer. The other traveled over her ass and pushed the seam of her jeans against her slit, adding more pressure and friction to their grinding. She moaned her need into his mouth. Her orgasm was so close, and they hadn’t even gotten skin to skin yet. She ground against him faster, harder, trying to get to the top of the climax climb. She wanted to fall over the edge, feel the release of the tension and lust crawling over her skin.

She pulled her lips from his with a groan and slid her lips down his neck, laving the skin with wet kisses and licks. Instinct had her flexing her jaw muscles, enticing her canines to descend. She nipped the muscle at the base of his neck and reveled in the dark growl that vibrated against her chest in response.

 

 

Blurb: Renae Gioli isn’t looking for adventure but it finds her in the form of an Italian speaking man named Alexandre DiMassone. The moment she hears his voice in a crappy dive bar she’s entranced. His strange behavior on the dance floor leaves her hot, wanting, and scared.

He’s captivated by her eyes and even as he fights it the vampire can’t help himself. Can he push aside his jaded attitude and embrace what Fate has given him before he loses her? His obsession spells trouble and lust for her. Kidnapping her was never in the cards, but he doesn’t have the willpower to let her walk away.

Rogue vampires, cougar shifters, and more intrude on their time. Can she forgive him for forcing his will on her and changing her entire life in a single bite? His arrogance knows no bounds but she catches a glimpse of the confusion beneath.

Excerpt 5:

“If you continue marking me I’ll be forced to get you naked and screaming again.”

She didn’t know if he was trying to joke with her or not, but she was completely on board with getting naked and sweaty with him. Her body craved him already. If she could keep him in bed forever she would. To answer his threat she dug her nails harder into his back and moaned a little while she raked them across his skin.

Alex leaned back, and she tried not to grin at the feral light gleaming in his glowing eyes. She obviously didn’t cover her smile well enough. “You tempt me on purpose? Oh, cara, you could drive angels to throw themselves from the heavens. Get naked before I rip the clothes from you.”

She gasped when he was gone from the bed. One moment he was looking down into her eyes, the next he was standing by the other side of the room. She watched him peel his pants and shirt from his beautiful body. A growl and nod brought her from her staring. Right. Get naked. She scrambled to comply, pulling off her shirt and bra in one movement.

The moment she was completely unclothed Alex was there, wrapping his arms around her. His warmth felt wonderful against her skin. She sighed into the embrace.

“I meant to take you slowly this time, but I need you too much.” His voice was deep and echoing under her cheek.

“I need you too.” Admitting it brought heat to her cheeks, but she wouldn’t hide from the truth.

“Good.”

He had her on the bed under his body within a blink. His hands kept his weight off of her but his pelvis was cradled between her legs. She would have been embarrassed by how wet she was already but the feel of his hard shaft sliding through her slick folds tore all emotions other than lust from her mind. The head of his cock rubbed across her clit, and she bucked against him, trying to get more contact.

She wanted him inside her. Wiggling under him seemed to clue him into her desires because he tilted his hips enough to bring his engorged member to her opening. She was so wet it slid into her channel. She moved her hips trying to get him in farther and whimpered when he countered her action.

Blurb:

The steamy standalone sequel to Dangerously Mine.

Kane Epps divides his life into two distinct parts—before the

alien invasion and after. Before the invasion, he had a pregnant wife and a

high-powered job. After the invasion, he’s left with only himself and his

hatred for all things alien. He channels his bitterness by captaining a vessel

of renegade humans—space pirates who don’t think twice about taking what they

need.

Princess Sa’Mya is on the run. She and a few trusted advisers fled her

home planet, only to be captured by the sexy, dangerous Captain Epps. He claims

to hate aliens but can’t seem to resist touching her or kissing her…everywhere.

As Kane introduces Sa’Mya to ever-increasing, unimaginable realms of pleasure,

the princess becomes determined to earn his trust. She’s used to getting what

she wants. And this time, what she wants is Kane Epps.

Inside Scoop: This space-opera romance contains male/male sex scenes, girl-on-girl

action, group sex and some good old-fashioned voyeurism.

 Sugar Daddy Blurb

She needs a job. He wants a mistress. Hearts and contracts are bound to get broken.

Shay Greer is pure GRITS—a Girl Raised In The South–but nowhere near a demure southern belle. She’s looking for a way out of her broken down marriage when she lands an unexpected job offer she really should refuse. Position? Mistress. Fringe Benefits? Of course. Fraternization with sexy CEO Reardon Boone? Required. Lured by the promise of intimacy missing from her failed marriage, Shay signs on. She’s barely survived a hellish year of heartbreak and needs a fresh start, but she gets more than she bargained for with lowcountry-boy-made-good Reardon Boone.

Bankrolling Shay into his bedroom, Reardon sticks by his tried and true rules: no-strings-attached seduction, no messy emotions, absolutely nothing resembling a relationship. This sassy, sultry woman fits the bill precisely…until she arouses more than his erotic appetite.

So desirable he sets hearts on fire in everyone from downtown debutantes to downhome mommas, Reardon is as irresistible as he is unattainable. Shay falls hard despite their unorthodox arrangement. Determined to discover what’s concealed beneath his Forbes 400 facade, she has no idea how close to home the truth will hit.

CONTENT WARNING: Hotter than a South Carolina summer.

 

Sugar Daddy Excerpt:

At the coffee shop, Momma grabbed a table while I waited in line amidst the business men and college students, the moms with their stampedes of towheaded children gabbing and grabbing any damn thing they could get their hands on.

I was waving at a youngster peeking out behind a display of stupidly expensive tea bags when a recognizable heat radiated against my back.

It was him. On-fire Rat Bastard Reardon. Of all the Starbucks in all of Charleston.

“You slummin’ it, Mr. Boone?”

Tweaking my ponytail the way I wanted him to squeeze my nipples. No, scratch that, I’d rather he fisted all of my hair, pushed me against the counter, using his legs to spread mine and…

“Fancy meeting you here too, Miss Greer.”

He stood close enough that the brush of his trousers against my bare legs made me arch backward into him. Appearing as if we were making nothing more than small talk, he placed a hand over my rear, gave it a rub, and then a sharp swat.

Goodbye cloak and dagger, hellooo Mr. Goodbar.

His cocky grin met my surprised eyes, and his hand stayed on my ass.

Beneath the swanky tails of his tailored suit jacket, I jerked his leather belt before moving onto the half shell sinew of his glutes, giving him a rub of my own.

His eyes slamming shut, he purred, “Shay, if you don’t remove your hand right now, I’ll have no recourse but to fuck you in front of these pleasant baristas.”

I’ll take two of those to go, please.

I turned to him, my hip bumping against his full erection. My face flamed and I mumbled to myself.

His grin brimmed with naughty implications. “What was that?”

“I said, it’s good to see you’re upwardly mobile.”

“You’ve got no idea.” He kept a hand on my hip and pointed to the menu board. “What can I get you?”

Under the guise of inspecting the other offerings, I wiggled until my bottom was seated against him. “You referrin’ to a beverage, or somethin’ better?”

“The former, for now,” he gruffly replied. “We’ll get to the other later.”

Maggie’s Desire

Welcome to Paradise 2

Blurb:

Who would have thought a plan to get the attention of one man, would have Maggie Blake taking two men to her bed?

Maggie Blake has one desire, to experience what the way-too-sexy Brian O’Malley has to offer in bed. Too bad, he thinks of her as an annoyance and not as the hot willing woman she is.

Brian has one rule in life. Never let a woman too close, but club Paradise’s sassy little bartender threatens to change that rule and wiggle her hot little ass into his damaged heart.

Sometimes working in a sex club sucks monkey ass.

Maggie Black leaned on the bar and sighed. “For a tax attorney, the man can move.”

“Hey, can I get a Jack and Coke.”

Maggie pulled her attention from the sight of Brian O’Malley’s magnificent body moving sensually over the woman on her hands and knees center stage. Bitch.

She’d been watching Brian fuck women in Club Paradise for years. Every time his talents got harder to ignore.

A glass rattled by her ear. “Oh, Maggie.”

The man’s annoyed tone ran like razor wire over her nerves.

She swatted at his arm. “Yeah, keep your pants on.”

The man cupped himself and winked. “I’m not wearing pants.”

It was a damn shame he wasn’t wearing at least a G-string. His pinky-sized dick flopped around like a dead fish. She bit her bottom lip to keep from laughing or vomiting, Maggie wasn’t sure which. She poured pinky dick his drink. “Oh, you’re not? I didn’t notice,” she said, handing him his Jack and Coke.

He slapped a ten on the bar and grinned. “Always good talking to you, Maggie.”

Maggie saluted, checked her watch, and yawned. God, she wished she were still in bed. Her plans for Saturday included sleeping in before she had to pick up her friend, Nick, from the airport. They sure as hell didn’t include a seven am call from her morning bartender. The woman quit because she couldn’t find a babysitter.

It was days like this being Club Paradise’s manager stunk big time. She stretched to work out the kinks in her back. Working until the wee hours last night and having to cover the lunch shift didn’t leave time for the hot bath she longed for.

Maggie tugged on her tank top, turned, and looked at the writhing bodies twenty feet in front of her. Brian’s crystal blue eyes latched onto her, holding her in place. Sweat glistened like diamonds on his skin, highlighting every muscular dip and valley. His perfectly cut hair dripped from his efforts. Her figures itched to run through the midnight-colored strands.

For a moment she wondered what it would be like if she was the one he crooked his finger at and led up onto the stage. Maggie groaned and shifted. She wanted Brian’s hard body over hers, inside her. The desire to have his thick, hard cock probing the delicate fold of her pussy while he held her against his solid chest had a shiver running up Maggie’s spine.

Lust flashed white-hot inside her core. She watched Brian ram his hips against the woman’s ass. Maggie could hear the woman’s cries of ecstasy over the cheers of the crowd. Jealousy burned in her gut. She closed her eyes to block out the intoxicating sight.
