Ava Cuvay: That’s My Theory

Ava Cuvay: That’s My Theory

Why do we read Romance? I’m currently writing, Tin Toy, the second book in the Silver Cyborg Series, about a cybernetic librarian who looks like a pin-up model, kisses like an angel, and fights like a trained assassin. I thought it would be fun to make her a huge fan of Romance, and associate common Romance tropes with various situations she’s in. Like May-December romances, secret baby, and bad boy billionaire, just to name a few. And, as is common…

Where Magic Begins: Ava Cuvay (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Colleen C! *~*~* Where the (Writing) Magic Happens When this particular theme was bandied about, I knew I had to “go there” with it and take a picture of my bed. As a romance writer, I can admit that a certain brand of magic happens there, among other flat surfaces. While it may look like some particularly energetic magic has recently occurred, well, that’s just how it normally looks. And I get a fun chortle out of…

Ava Cuvay: Old Dogs and New Tricks

Ava Cuvay: Old Dogs and New Tricks

I have a confession to make, one which likely shows what a sheltered life I’ve lived: Last year, I discovered that tentacle sex was… a thing. And as I shared my shocked wonder with my fellow author pals, their response was always a shrugged “Oh, yeah, Hentai. It’s been around for a long time.” *blink*blink*picks jaw off floor* So, it would seem that the Japanese tentacle erotica, which falls under the category of Hentai, essentially anything that isn’t human-heterosexual-twosome-sex in…

Kimberly Lithe: “Burning Stars” from STRANDED (Contest)

Kimberly Lithe: “Burning Stars” from STRANDED (Contest)

I always try to use humor in all my writing, even if comedy is not central to the story as a whole. Witty banter is the best kind of foreplay, so I spent a lot of time on the dialogue, even going so far as to strong-arm my very reluctant brother into critiquing it. I like to think the vibe of my story is a mix between the films True Lies and Lockout if they had aliens, superhumans and steamy…

Kimberly Dean: The Things You Learn (Contest)

UPDATE: And the winner is…Latifa Morisette! *~*~* If you ever start writing romance, there’s one question you’ll inevitably hear. “How did you research that? Heh, heh.” And the person asking the question will think they’re so original and so funny. They’re neither, but what they don’t understand is that there can be a lot of research required when writing romance. For my story, “Out of This World,” in the Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology, I read a lot about…

Kimberly Lithe: Burning Stars (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Keri Richards! *~*~*~* My writing journey… Fantasy, sci-fi and supernatural stories have been my literary escape for as long as I can remember being able to read. When I was in secondary school my friend recommended Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon. This was the first taste of my new addiction. Adult paranormal romance. I then read every paranormal, supernatural, and urban fantasy romance book I could get my parents to buy for me. Then it was historical romance,…
