You all know the drill by now. It's the boudoir - low lighting, plush furnishings, sexy sax and a great big bed to share with another author. Hop in and hear some secrets with the very lovely and talented Juanita Kees.

Every now and then something or someone stumbles across our path that changes us. At the time it feels like an accident, a random act of the universe. Looking back on these moments with hindsight, however, they begin to look more like destiny.

Having returned on a high from the annual Australian Romance Writers Conference I wanted to write a post that captured the essence of the event. But how to give it the credit it's due? Most people think romance is all gushy and fluffy hearts and flowers. Yet this conference a huge and professional event. So I thought, go to the source - what better way to tell the story of a conference experience than through Tweets...

Welcome the sixth erotic romance writer to join me in the boudoir for a little pillow talk. Jennifer Lynne talks about emotional connection in erotic writing and a first kiss that would be enough to put anyone off kissing for a very long time!

Stories are powerful. They change people. If told at the right time to the right audience, they can change the course of history. It’s time to for us to stop believing our superstitious fairy tales about who and what women can be. We need books like this to be written by people like Tara Moss. Why? Because her mass market celebrity appeal means her message might reach the very people who need to hear it.

The final hurdle for my babe in arms manuscript (aside from the last round of edits, the acknowledgements, the promo plan and the cover) was the title. I sensed my original title Saint wasn’t quite right for the story but I was at a loss to come up with an alternative.

This month we are in bed with fabulous and fascinating Regency and steampunk erotica author, Suzi Love. And her first kiss story is so sweet it will melt in your mind.

In the fourth of my Journey to Jade series I talk about courage, the power of writers groups and the power of story. Last week I explained how I jumped a big mental hurdle thanks to a bit of art therapy. While this got me writing again, I was still up against a complex plot with some gnarly character problems that needed sorting out. And I was still being dogged by those nasty spooks, Doubt and Fear.

Welcome back to the boudoir which we are sharing today with Aussie erotic writer, Bianca Sarble. I met Bianca in the notorious Facebook group, Erotic Writers of Australia. She is one cheeky lady and lots of fun, so let's get under the sheets and get to know her better...

With 'Saint' contracted and a deadline looming, I now had no choice but to keep writing.
Banjo was dead. Jade was comatose. And I had no idea who Lissy was. Or why I’d chosen to write this particular story. The bar I'd set for myself seemed insurmountable.
I felt like I was on a one way path to literary oblivion. Then art therapy arrived...

Being Jade, for many reasons, is the most difficult piece of work I’ve ever written. It began as a challenge and over three years of writing, never changed.
In the run up to its release, I thought it might be fun to share some of the ups and downs of my journey with this intriguing story, beginning with the character at its heart – Jade. This is what she looked like in her first draft.

It’s come to my attention there is a myth floating around about writers. Actually, it’s not so much floating as super-glued or nail gunned into people’s minds. But with a little honesty and algebra, I think we might have sorted.
So you think I'm rich and famous? Here's the truth...

‘Erotica can change the world, I really believe that.’
This statement was issued with conviction by my fellow panelist, Krissy Kneen, last Wednesday night during The Wheeler’s Centre Sex in Words event. Sounds crazy, right? How can erotica change anything, let alone the world? It’s just writing about sex, isn’t it? Maybe. Then again, maybe not.

I climb between the sheets with author Margareta Osborn to discover first kisses can be a curse and resisting a man for 24 hours can be considered as 'holding out'.
