Welcome, A to Z bloggers, visitors, and of course all my faithful regular readers! This year's theme for my A to Z:
Short & Sweet Reasons Why You Need an Editor
So without further ado . . .
X-Rated scenes show up in a variety of novels. They can be blatantly descriptive in erotica, or they can start off steamy and finish behind closed doors, so to speak.
Regardless of which way a writer chooses to go, these scenes need to be done well or they shouldn’t be included at all. There’s nothing worse than a love scene that feels awkward to read or sounds cheesy.
I’m not talking about deliberately cheesy, like someone saying, “Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?” Yeah. Definite cheese happening there.
But if the writer’s intent is for some serious love to be going on, or dialogue that makes the reader grab a fan and some ice water, then cheese is off the menu. If you fancy yourself a writer of all that’s steamy, make sure you hire an editor who specializes in it so you’ll get the best . . . uh . . . bang . . . for your buck.
