Heart of Flame update



Phew ... I've finished all the changes and line-edits to my Arabian Nights novel Heart of Flame and given it its final readthrough, and now it's back in the hands of the CatScratch editor. I hope she likes it!

Personally, I love this book. I loved researching it. I loved writing it. I love it on re-reading. It's not full-on erotica just for once (though there is a fair amount of hot vanilla sex) but an adventure-romance. That means my sort of romance - where people get into fights and meet horrible monsters and explore scary desert ruins where ancient gods lurk in the darkness. And fall crazy-in-love while rescuing each other from horrible dooms.  Yummy yummy yummy. And I adore my heroine and hero.  I want to meet  them. I want to have dinner with them. I want to crawl under a table when they start throwing plates at each other...

So don't hold your breath or anything, but Heart of Flame is on its way.

Congrats!

You sure you don't want to get in the mix when the plates start flying?

Mmmm...
If there is a heaven for erotica authors, it will allow them to get in the mix with their characters.

It sounds fab - I'm all for Arabian Nightsy action adventure/romance! Do you have a release date for it yet?

Please let erotica writers' heaven exist...

Outstanding!

And with uber geekiness, I intend to name my character in the next role playing campaign after whichever of your protagonists I like best.
