Since I mostly write erotic romance it comes as a surprise to people when I say that's not what I read. Not to say I don't ever read it, I do but I'm very picky about what I like. I feel it's a little like eating chocolate. I like it but I don't like all types and I don't want to eat it every day. My main problem with many erotic romances is that I like to be drawn deeper into the characters than the author allows. So much time is taken putting people in bed together, without letting me understand why they're right for each other - apart from in the sack. I like plot. I like villains. I like more than sex scene after sex scene when I read.
My other problem is that because I have to write lots of sex, it all becomes a blur when I read those scenes in other books. Same old, same old. It's a rare erotic romance writer who manages to get me to read every page. Emma Holly's books - the early ones rather than the fantasy ones - which I haven't read - yes, I'd read every page of those. DL Jackson has an amazing imagination and creates fantastic worlds for her characters. There's far more than sex in those! My crit partner Arlene Webb writes in a multitude of genres - but her erotic stories are always ones with a difference and always memorable.
So that's what I strive for in my writing. To be different and memorable. Only time will tell.
