While I get a bit squeamish about romance (see my Valentine's post), I'm grateful writer Beverly Diehl at Writing in the Flow is not. She writes erotica and romance.
I may be a little "oh my" when thinking about reading erotic romance, but I'm never that way about reading Beverly's blog.
When I read 10 Questions answered by Erotic Author Roni Loren, I was shocked to read No. 5 and the link to what happened to erotic romance author Judy Mays. Here's another post by Beverly on The Outing of Author Judy Mays. Parents were upset an erotic romance author was in their children's classroom. Think about the books you read — do you believe the author "lived" the fiction he or she wrote? If readers don't apply that logic to Stephen King, etc., why would they do this to an erotic romance writer?
Some posts I have enjoyed:
- This week, Beverly wrote: Captain Condom: Cover me, I'm Goin' In!
- In January, I participated in her Got Racism? Discrimination? MLK BlogFest on these Issues
- She shared Why I love My FaceBook Fan Page and a Little #ManCandy at the end of January. She shares the benefits of a personal page vs. a fan page.
- Why I'm Still Pro-Choice, Even After Our Family Lost a Baby or Mike McQueary - Coward, Scapegoat or Imperfect Hero?
She explains her blog's name in Why Writing in the Flow? She shares her writing path and writing credits on her about me page.
I like Beverly's blog, because it makes me think about writing issues and about life as a woman, wife and mother in new ways. Plus, Beverly is super nice. I've emailed her before with Blogger questions and she's helped me. Thanks to her I have those fancy follow buttons and am participating in the Blogging A to Z Challenge in April.
Now, I'm going to write about a talking tumbleweed. Please don't judge me like people do erotic romance writers, just let me talk to the tumbleweed. I promise I'm okay.
I also wanted to thank Susanne Drazic at Putting Words Down on Paper for giving me The Versatile Blogger Award. She's a 2011 NaNoWriMo winner and will participate in the A to Z Challenge in April. Thanks bunches Susanne for the award.
