Seven Things I’ve discovered in writing Erotic Romances

(1) It’s not just about sex—really! It’s actually secondary to the characters and plot. If your story isn’t solid, readers won’t buy it in any genre. And with the influx of new writers in this or any genre the field will soon weed out weak storytelling.

(2) While I’m on the topic of genre: mixed genre is all the rage. Can you tell a great sc... Read more of this blog post »

January Bain My pleasure, Lucinda! Wishing you a great day! Best, January


Lucinda Dear January,

January Bain Hi Sarah Elizabeth, it was lovly to be invited to promote Forever Man on your blog! And thanks for your kind comments about Forever Man. I wrote it quite a bit of time ago and rereading it I feel the hopefulness of that time. I'm a lot more complicated now in my approach to life and it shows in my newer books, like The Time Key, Forever Woman and PLANET. Evolution is a good thing, I hope!

Sarah Hi Januray,

Thanks for the friend-vite and thanks for stopping by my blog ☺ 'Forever Man' looks great!

Blog: considering time travel

Thinking about "causality" today, the relationship between a first event (cause) and a second event (effect) as it relates to my favorite subject this fall, time travel. Looks like to avoid paradoxes into the past, I'll need to have the time machine invented before the time in the past it is needed to "fix" an event, with a character, for example. Definately affects how the story will unfold, but I really want the story to be seen well by hard science people as well as churn up the imagination of all my hoped for readers!


January Bain Hello, it is a pleasure to meet you as well. Have a great day! Best, January
