I’m always looking for new ways to market and promote my work, and one of the things I hear more often than any other is that sex sells. Erotic fiction, pornography, even, has, according to some, a guaranteed market that, if approached correctly, could prove highly lucrative.
Now, I’m not entirely convinced… but I’m willing to give it a try!
So, without wishing to suggest that my debut novel If I Never is a romp from beginning to end, I feel it my duty to point out that it does include the odd (in whatever sense you prefer) sex scene. It has strong characters, layers of meaning, violence and love — but, yes, it also has what I would term “an appropriate amount of shagging”.
For those who might doubt this, here is a little taster
“Quickly, I took her in my arms — telling her that there was nothing wrong and that I merely felt a little strange, being in her room for the first time. I kissed her and told her that I loved her, laying her on the bed and removing her knickers. Still fully-clothed, myself, I parted her labia, tasting deeply, inhaling with all my might in a desperate attempt to smell her. My nose pressed against her clitoris, I breathed in again… and again… and again, Tara whimpering softly as I worked at her, my cock painfully hard in the confines of my jeans.”
To your liking? Well, why not check out the first chapter and, if it still proves to be your lightly-honeyed cup of tea, buy If I Never here. (Really good value for money, at the moment — so hurry, hurry, hurry!)
So much for the soft sell, eh?
(Afterthought: do you think including the word “pussy” in the body of this post might help increase hits. Let’s see…)
