So sorry to have missed you yesterday, but New Jersey Transit had other plans for me it seems. In addition to a one hour delay in the morning, my 40 minute train ride home turned into a two and a half hour journey. Luckily I met up with my friend and fellow author Nisha Sharma on the train and we turned that lemon into lemonade.
With today being Wicked Wednesday, why not talk about Obsession?
It’s a word bandied about in television commercials trying to sell you an assortment of items. People admit to being obsessed about everything from foods to movies to books, not really meaning or understanding the true meaning of obsession.
In its most extreme forms obsession becomes the master, overtaking heart, mind and soul with no thought to reason. It can enslave when there is no way to end the compulsion for someone or some thing or it can liberate when the obsession is satisfied and brings enlightenment.
Where is that coming from you may wonder? Well, I am so honored to have been asked to write the foreword for a new book of erotica for women edited by the wonderful Rachel Kramer Bussell.
OBSESSED is a sexy and eclectic collection of erotic romance stories for those who like a sexier read. It was quite interesting to see the diversity of the stories as the writers like Kayla Perrin and others explore an assortment of obsessions from a compelling attraction to a boss to rekindling married love in a story by Rachel.
Having enjoyed the stories so much, I think I’m going to try my hand at a sexy little story with a vampire and his female keeper. What do you think? Do you like sexier stories like this? Inquiring minds want to know.
