Meet the Author Monday - Becca Simone

Becca Simone is an erotic romance writer. You know what that means, right?  She has lots of hot sex with all sorts of hot men, at all times of the day and night, in all sorts of exotic places, and in all sorts of wild ways. And then she writes about it in her stories.

Did you happen to notice her  initials? B.S.
Yeah. You figured it out.

Becca lives vicariously through the sexual adventures of her characters, because she lives a normal, nonfictional life with her husband of many years and two usually great teenagers.

And the hot sex? Nice girls don't kiss and tell. If you want the naughty stuff, you'll have to read her stories.

Weclome, Becca. Why do you write the stories you write?
The simple answer is because I love reading the type of stories I write. I love reading good erotica—by “good erotica” I mean sexy, super hot stories that actually have a plot. I’ve read many erotic romances where the focus is on the sex, not the romance, and not the plot. My favorite stories have a balance between the three. That’s what I hope to give my readers.

What are your writing goals for this year?
To finish what I start. I tend to flit from project to project, and it takes me forever to get anything done. So, I’m working really hard to finish all the half-written stories on my hard drive. I hope to finish and submit two more stories in my Cursed Love series with Siren-Bookstrand, and to self-publish a couple of short stories.

Do you have any releases scheduled for this year?
DEEP BLUE, a paranormal erotic romance, came out last month with Siren-Bookstrand. It’s the first in my new Cursed Love series. As of today, it’s available at Bookstrand (http://www.bookstrand.com/deep-blue) and Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Cursed-Siren-Publishing-Classic-ebook/dp/B007XJ761M/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1335489901&sr=1-2) and should be available any day at Barnes & Noble. Also any day now, I will be rereleasing my first published work, MIDNIGHT TREAT, with a brand new, amazing cover. You can check my website (http://BeccaSimone.com) for updates.

What do you like to read?
When I’m actively writing a book or story, I can’t read in my genre, so I’ve been reading a lot of romantic suspense and thriller novels lately. Robert Dugoni and Kevin O’Brien are two favorites.

What would you like to know from readers?
When reading erotic romances, what is most important to you? Great sex, great characters or great plot?

Thanks for having me, Emma. I actually left a comment on Monday, or thought I did, LOL. Blogger doesn't like me this week, apparently.
