The eBook Winner is:
Thank you for visiting today. I’m excited to introduce you to erotic author/editor Lucy Felthouse who has put together sixteen stories from fourteen authors. Grab your favorite beverage and get comfy so you can enjoy the interview direct from the UK!
Tonya: Some of us have things we do to get into the writing frame of mind like music, or drinks. Do you have anything special you do to get into the writing mood?
Lucy: Not really, I just sit down and get going. I actually find music distracting when I'm writing fiction; I have to work in quiet.
Tonya: Do you like pushing the envelope when writing?
Lucy: I guess so. Up until recently, I've stuck mainly with contemporary M/F stories, but increasingly I'm finding myself trying to do something different. So far I've penned a couple of lesbian stories, some paranormal stuff, and a historical idea even popped into my head a few days ago. I want to stretch myself more as a writer so I'll definitely be exploring more of this stuff!
Tonya: Do you have a card file where you keep story ideas? Where do they come from?
Lucy: I have a notebook where I have lots of story ideas, sentences, situations, character names and more. They come from all over the place. Some of them just arrive randomly in my head, others are inspired by people or situations, or even books, films and TV shows. I don't mind where they come from; I just make sure I write them down for future reference!
Tonya: It’s interesting all the ways writes have of archiving their story ideas, character names and beginning titles. Tell us about a day in your life as a writer.
Lucy: I'm not a full-time writer. I recently left a full-time job and went freelance. Part of the time I'm doing PR, Marketing and Web Design, and the rest of the time I'm writing. I don't have a strict schedule though, I just do what I want and when. If I have a writing deadline, that comes first. If I have a client wanting their website completed, I work on that first. It's pretty fluid and so far I'm really enjoying it. I'm getting the freedom to do what I want and I've never been more productive!
Tonya: Are you a daytime writer, night time writer, and do you have to be alone to write?
Lucy: I can write any time, really. If I ever just feel like writing, I tend to run with it as I get lots done. Other times I have to make myself get started. But it doesn't matter when. As long as I'm not exhausted, I can usually get some words down. I don’t force myself if I really don't feel like it, because it ends up coming out as utter rubbish! And yes, I do have to be alone. Not in the house, of course, but certainly the room.
Tonya: Do you intentionally give your characters flaws so the reader might relate to them better?
Lucy: Not really. My characters tend to develop as I'm writing them. I don’t often create a fully formed character in my head then insert them into a story. I find out more about them as I'm writing!
Tonya: That’s what is fun – watching our characters evolve as we write and how they change our stories! Do you write about things that may teach your reader new ‘ideas’ they might use at home?
Lucy: I guess so. It depends how adventurous they are! I'm sure there's stuff readers can teach me, too!
Tonya: Where can our readers find you and your books?
Lucy: My website. Check out http://lucyfelthouse.co.uk, which is also my blog. On there you'll find info about me, and pages for all the books I've had stories in or published. There are also links to purchase the books, too. I also run another website, Erotica For All, which is a place for readers and writers of erotica to connect. Check that out at http://eroticaforall.co.uk.
Tonya: Erotica for All is a fabulous site for readers to see the author’s works. Is there anything else you want to tell our readers?
Lucy: I recently edited my first anthology, Uniform Behaviour. It contains sixteen stories from fourteen authors about men and women in uniform. It was a very exciting project and one that's receiving fab reviews. Another great thing is the fact that a percentage of the proceeds from the book are being donated to UK charity Help for Heroes, which helps injured returning servicemen and women. So if you're after a red hot read which is also doing good – grab a copy today! It's available from all good eBook retailers.
Tonya: What a great idea! Readers, what better way to lend a hand in helping injured servicemen and women and receive several hot reads in the deal! Can we help put Uniform Behaviour in the top 25! Let’s at least give it a try! Hop over and download your copy now! Here’s the website where you also have to watch the book trailer! There’s a contest further down the page – be sure to read the requirements before heading to Lucy’s website:
