Take Another Step Back

I really shouldn't have been surprised. I mean, honestly, like we'd gain respect with just one interview? Instead of what could have been an incredible way to show off what we do, we were told over and over again we write "Mommy Porn."

Really?

Sorry, I'm not a "mommy" in their terms. Meaning I don't think my place is in the kitchen or by my husband's side, only doing what he says and being happy that he lets me have a voice every once in a while. I don't think that because I'm a woman I should surprise people that I have a brain. Sorry, people, I'm smarter than that. I have degrees, years in colleges, papers in my name in the scientific and mathematics communities. I've earned awards and grants for my research and my teaching. I've been voted favorite teacher and loved teaching chemistry.

That's right, boys, I taught SCIENCE.

I'm not your "mommy." Stop putting me in a corner. Stop trying to shove women in a box because *gasp* they do things on their own and have their own ideas.

I for sure don't write porn.

Porn is for the use of titillation as author Lauren Dane said HERE. I work hours a day coming up with plot, character development, and romance. I don't spend my day worrying only about sex scenes.
But guess what, just because I'm a woman doesn't mean I can't write about sex.

Sex.

Yes. I said the word. Get over it. Stop putting me in your little box where the "little woman" doesn't know best.

Erotic Romance isn't "Mommy Porn". It's a story that hinges on something far greater than just what positions the characters are in when they're in the bedroom.

Honestly, CBS, you ruined a great opportunity and used a wonderful author to get there. After saying the word PORN over and over again, even blurring out images, and showing that her children don't really respect it, you let that author say one sentence about what romance authors really do.

One sentence that while it was true, did nothing to stop you from calling it "Mommy Porn" for headlines.

The community the media is ignoring is a vast one that is filled with brilliant women--and men--who are being belittled because they don't conform to your attitudes.

This is nothing new but stop patronizing us that you "finally see" us. You're saying we have no value other than doing something on the side of being a "mommy". Sorry, we're better than that.

Question Sunday: You Ask Me

Howdy! This is the first Sunday I'm doing this and I hope to do it more in the future! Ask my anything you'd like in the comments and I'll come and update the post throughout the day with the answers! So ask away!

Q from Hannah: Are you doing more books past Jackson's in Holiday, Montana?

A: While I'd love to, I'm not sure I will. I'm pretty settled after Dreams of Ivory in July. The Coopers will have their happy endings and I have many other series for you! I will say NEVER SAY NEVER though because I could totally write novellas that visit those sexy Coopers and maybe even find a new holiday. For now, though, I'm moving on to more Dante's Circle and more Redwood Pack. 

Q: from Dee Little: Which authors of the erotic genre do you like to read?

A: I read many, many authors in most genres. In the erotic one, the ones that come to mind are Lorelei James, Maya Banks, Lauren Dane, and a few others.

Q: from Alex: What about the novella length do you enjoy most?

A: I read and write in novella and full length categories  but I like writing and reading some novellas when I just want to show of a short glimpse into my character's lives.

Q: Do you think you might write an after story about the Redwood Packs children when they are in their 20's? I'd like to see how they fair, especially Finn.

A: That sounds like it would be interesting.

“What’s going on, Abigail?”“Why do you call me that? Everyone else calls me, Abby.” She bit her lip, and his eyes focused on them for a second.They looked sexy…He blinked, a gray haze coming over his mind.Wait. What had he been thinking about?“Ty? Why do you call be Abigail?”“It’s your name, isn’t it?” And he liked the sound of it on his tongue. That gray haze came back, and he rubbed his temples. What the hell?She shook her head. “Whatever. I’m here to say goodbye actually.”“Goodbye?”“I’m moving, and I thought I’d say goodbye to all the Coopers.” She blinked and looked around as though trying to come up with what to say.“Moving? Why would you do that?”“There’s nothing for me here.”But, what about…He closed his eyes as a headache slammed into him. “What’s wrong, Ty?” Abigail walked toward him, and he took a step back. Hurt crossed her face for a moment, her eyes widening as she bit her lip, but then she managed to mask it.“I’m fine. Just a headache. Uh, I’m sorry to see you go.”Hurt flashed again, and this time, it looked even more painful. Her eyes took on a glassy glaze, almost as if she was about to cry, but she held it back.“I see.” She looked away from his face, and he frowned.

As the Alpha’s only daughter Shayna Andrews has always been treated like a rare gem, protected like royalty, and she’s suffocating.  Her longing to be independent has driven her to sneak out one evening after dinner. After relishing in being able to run free without an escort, she finds herself face-to-face with the enemy, miles from home, and nearly loses her life until a lone wolf comes to her aid.
Travis Hunter’s main objective is to destroy the Onyx Pack—a group of drug using, murdering rogue shifters. His seek-and-destroy plans are put on hold when he rescues a female from a brutal attack. The beautifully exotic tiger shifter, Shayna, stirs a passion he thought died with his long-lost mate.
When Shay’s first heat cycle slams into her, Travis has no choice but to submit to her needs—and his own. But there is always a price to sleeping with the Pack princess. Not only will they have to face her Pack, Shay and Travis will have to deal with a mating that is beyond a single night and could have consequences more than either of them had thought. And when Travis finds out Shay wears the enemy’s brand, things will go from bad to worse.

Warning: One alpha female who doesn’t take no for an answer, a wolf with more on the line than just his heart, and a combustible attraction that’s sure to cause more than one sweaty night.

Blurb:
There comes a time when setting your differences aside isn’t just necessary, it’s a means of survival. After losing over half of their dens to a group rogue shifters, the wolves and leopards merged as one Pack, but living together is much more of a challenge then they expected.

Danica Welsh was born to be the leopard pack healer. An accident involving a drug induced youth left her badly burned and scared—emotionally and physically. Without the ability to heal by touch, she secludes herself to the edge of town, away from Ashwood Falls’ overly concerned citizens. All hope of mating and family become a distance dream. When she finally starts to accepts the long, lonely existence ahead of her, a stranger crashes into her life, and her heart.

After Nevan Mathews’ fiancĂ© died three ago, he submerged himself into his work, cutting off all reminders of a life he dreamed of with the woman he loved. He lets his step-mother talk him into taking the first vacation in five years to visit for the holidays. But an accident delays his travel plans, sending him to Danica’s doorstep and raises a need he thought he would never feel again.
Can they tear down the walls around their hearts and submit to the passion before another claims Dani for his own?

Warning: Contains a shifter who’s scars run deeper than skin, a human who has the heart of a shifter, and a snow storm that’s sure to have them both reaching for warmth.
