Readers and authors beware – this could happen to you!

Readers and authors beware – this could happen to you!

Readers – what if you saw a new release from an erotic romance author you like and purchased it, only to discover that author didn’t write it, and that what you bought was, in fact, erotica or even porn? Authors – what if another person suddenly started publishing erotica under the same name as you, and mysteriously, their books kept being attached to your Goodreads author profile? What if a search of your name on book retailer sites started showing…

Ain’t Love Grand #RWAus16 Writers Conference – a newbie’s overview

Ain’t Love Grand #RWAus16 Writers Conference – a newbie’s overview

These past few days I’ve been away attending my first ever writer’s conference, Ain’t Love Grand, the Romance Writers of Australia 2016 conference at Glenelg Beach in Adelaide. I have to say, I’m still on a high from an intense and amazing experience. The trip included lots of eating, drinking, dancing, making merry, learning, creating, writing, networking, meeting wonderful people in person that I’ve only ever known online…more learning, more writing, more networking… in short, it was wonderful! Particular highlights for me…

The roller-coaster of life

The roller-coaster of life

What a roller-coaster couple of weeks. First I was in a minor car accident (the other driver drifted over the median strip onto the wrong side of the road) so I am currently without my trusty car while it is in for repairs. A few hours after that I was on a plane to New Zealand with my youngest daughter, where we spent five days on a whirlwind mini-break. On our return I was devastated to realize that it was…

Taking time out to heal

Taking time out to heal

I’ve been hibernating. Hiding away in my little box, so to speak. The accident last year that seriously damaged my arm & hand, coupled with pending house renovations, two surgeries and recovery for one of my daughters, plus on top of that a skin cancer diagnosis (the same type Hugh Jackman has been treated for – not the most serious kind, thank goodness!), has really knocked me around. Not just physically, but emotionally, too. I kept wanting to write but when…

A brief writing hiatus

A brief writing hiatus

Hi folks, I just wanted to stop by the blog and let you know I’m taking a brief hiatus from writing after an accident last week. I tripped over while doing the weekly grocery shopping and fractured my arm, among some other not-so-awesome injuries. I should be back on board in a few weeks, but for now, the Oct 15th planned “re-release” of Educating Ethan is on hold until later in the year. Typing with one hand is definitely doable,…

The A to Z of #Erotic Author Research #AmWriting

The A to Z of #Erotic Author Research #AmWriting

a.k.a. My really weird internet browser history Ever wondered what sort of things an erotic author might research? My Google browser history is rather eclectic, to say the least. As an author I look up whatever comes into my head during the development and writing of a story, and as a consequence, some of my searches can be rather random! Of course, as an erotic author, much of my research is sex-based – especially for some of the less “vanilla”…

Curious about a romance author’s #cats …um, I mean desk? @JenniLynnAuthor

Hi folks. I haven’t been here at the blog for a bit because that pesky thing called “real life” (a.k.a. doing more hours in the day job) got in the way. But I did manage to show off my writing space recently over at AusRomToday. If you’d like to see where I pen much of my work – including my erotic romance series, Gods of Love – please head on over to have a look at the photos of my…

Want to help spread the word about #Erotic #Romance?

Want to help spread the word about #Erotic #Romance?

If you’re connected with me on Facebook you may have seen that I’m in the process of setting up a Street Team. In the past week I’ve had a number of private queries asking just what it is, and what being part of one involves, before people decide to join. A Street Team is essentially a group of fans who come together (in my case within a Facebook group) to help an author or artist spread the word about his…
