I am currently doing the final read through of Hyperion’s Folly. My editor has advised that I do this from the point of view of a reader and not as the author. Not sure that I would be able to do this, I decided that I would read the story to my husband.
My husband who is an inspiration for some of the characters traits, keeps looking at me in surprise, as something familiar is shared in the story. Likewise, there have also been quite a few raised eyebrows and blushing moments at the unfamiliar scenes too.
Now on a completely different note, I thought I would share with you what I am currently reading. These days with writing myself, I don’t often get a chance to read much myself but seeing as it’s Christmas, I thought I would indulge myself.
Currently I have three stories I am working my way through. All three of these books are from UK authors, who like myself, write Erotic Romance / Erotica. The first one I have read, is by author Louise Taylor and is called The Incorrigible Anabelle Spencer (Ruttingdon Series Book 1). This book which is set in the Victorian era, surprisingly has a BDSM theme throughout. Once I started reading it, I found it very difficult to put down. The characters are well written and the historical descriptions only add to an already excellent book. I am relieved to see that this is book one in the series. Can’t wait to see what the others will hold.
The next book which I am currently reading, is Lighting Shift (A Shift in Time Book 1) by Vanessa Brooks. This book which is set in the 17th Century just prior to the English Civil War, tells the story of Duncan, who having taken shelter in an old barn in the 21sth Century during a thunder storm, is struck by lightening. When he wakes up, he finds himself in the body of a man, some four centuries in the past. Now I haven’t finished reading this one yet but so far, it is very enjoyable. I am strongly suspecting that Book 2 which is also available, may well be purchased in the not to distant future.
Now finally, the last book that will distract me from my own writing, is Sentenced to the Punishment Clinic by my good friend Carole Archer. A few months back, Carole visited and told us about her book, Melissa and the Medic. This latest book which is set in the future, tells the story of a young woman who having been caught stealing, is sent to a punishment clinic to pay for her misdeed. If this book is anything like her previous medical play stories, I am sure I won’t be disappointed.
Both Carole and Louise’s stories are currently enjoying number one spots with Amazon.com, in the fields of Science Fiction and Regency/Victorian.
