I have been a fan of Selena Kitt since I came across her “Baumgartners” series. I tend to feel a strong connection to erotic authors who can get me off with their words. It’s an odd feeling getting wrapped up in a good kinky story and realizing there is a person in the world who totally gets you sexually. I am quite sure I have read her entire catalog and have just made a mental note to ensure this is the case.
I read romance novels all through my teens and twenty’s and ventured into what I would call “classic erotica” (e.g.Story of O) every now and then, until I came across Erotic Romance – which was a huge relief. I was so sick of being hung out to dry with the “he entered her…she sighed” – next chapter!
Erotic Romance is still my favorite genre to read, however sometimes a girl just wants a little kink, something spicier, quicker, something you don’t need to invest too much into – something a little less dramatic!
Selena Kitt’s books provide that for me and I have also found this is the type of writing I enjoy creating myself (so far).
Every industry has veterans, pro’s, experienced people who happily share their knowledge – but I have to admit I found it difficult to find some with the type of experience I was looking for, who had achieved the kind of success I can only dream of. So you can imagine my delight when I came across The Self Publishing Revolution. I have read many of the articles since and came across a particularly interesting one written by Selena: Erotica Sustainability.
The article is full of great guidance and advice and makes some very thoughtful points about contributing to the industry overall and having a responsibility in helping all erotic self publishers succeed over the long term. It made me think specifically about how I will approach my upcoming book release and I was truly grateful for the guidance.
Selena seems to be an author that keeps on giving! I will be sure to post a few reviews of my favorite books in the coming weeks.
