Today on the Cock & Bull Blog Tour spot I’m featuring Em Woods!
Em’s new release, Only Sam, is out on January 16th in the His Hero anthology from Total-E-Bound Publishing. She’s dropped by with a smexy Q&A and is even giving away TWO free copies of His Hero! Leave a comment below and at the end of the tour she’ll be picking two winners.
And now here’s Em!
Talking Smex with Em Woods…for the Cock & Bull Blog Tour
1. Do you act out your sex scenes (whether with your head or literally with someone else) and how does that help you in writing them? And be honest! lol
I try to see the scene in my head and let it play out. Half the time I’m typing away with my eyes closed just to keep the details lingering. *eyes my lovely readers* But if anyone’s volunteering… *wink*
2. What is the oddest thing you’ve found while researching for a sex scene?
You know, there just isn’t anything that surprises me anymore. But I can remember my naivety fleeing into the night, screaming ‘eewww’ when I came across water play. I know there are people who dig that…but…well, good for them. LOL.
3. What’s the most difficult aspect of crafting a sexy scene?
Variation. Just like a person’s sex life can get stale…so can a writer’s fictional one. I try to keep it different for each couple. It is easy to fall into a routine of mechanics but an author has to remember to keep their lovelies spicy too!
4. What expression do you think has been overused in sex scenes and what are you doing about it?
“Oh God” …. and I try like crazy to not use it!! *ahem* But it doesn’t always work out that way. LOL
5. Do you have any particular rituals in preparation for writing a sex scene? If not, what would you consider a good idea?
Surprisingly, I don’t. But the best advice I could give is to do what works for you. If you need to smooch on your honey or if you need to load smexy music, go for it. I need to just dive on into writing it. The more I think on it, the more I over think it and ruin it.
*grins big* Thanks to Kit for having me over!! I’m so excited about this Cock & Bull Blog Tour…and about Only Sam releasing in the HIS HERO Anthology (along with Kit!!) on Monday, January 16th at Total-E-Bound.
Since you all have been so good…how about we do it up right? Down yonder (after the smexy excerpt you’ll want to read) post a comment and I’ll draw two winners at the close of the tour to receive free copies of the HIS HERO Anthology.
BLURB: ONLY SAM by Em Woods
When a restaurant goes up in flames, will a spark of love rise from the ashes for a chef and his hero?
When chef Dylan Brookes finds his restaurant engulfed in flames, all he can do is watch his dreams turn to ashes. Shock, hurt and disbelief leave Dylan vulnerable to both the man who wants to love him…and the one who wants to kill him.
Firefighter Sam Carter has been frequenting the same small restaurant for a year, trying to work up the nerve to ask the chef out on a date. When Dylan’s Omni burns to the ground from foul play, Sam steps in to help.
Now the question is…will his efforts be too late?
Dylan smiled and winked at Sam before turning his attention back to Jenny. “I need to figure out what it will cost to buy out Mike. Jen, he wants to turn Omni into a fucking Italian restaurant.”
“What? Damn him! He cannot do that.”
What amazed Dylan most was that Sam mirrored almost word for word Jenny’s protest. Sam had jumped off the bed and was now pacing in front of him, running his hands through his hair and mumbling under his breath.
“I know.” Dylan snagged Sam’s hand on one of his trips past. He shot him a questioning look, but continued to focus on Jenny. “That’s why I need to find out what it will take to buy him out.”
“Let me make some calls, and I’ll get back to you.” She sounded winded, but that was Jenny. Always on the go. “Answer your damn phone when I call this time.”
“I’ll try. I might be”—Dylan paused long enough to draw Sam’s attention—“busy.”
“Eeww.” Jenny laughed. “I did not need to know that. TMI, brother.”
“Talk to you later.” Dylan ended the call, her giggles bringing a smile to his face.
Sam walked to stand in front of Dylan—his cock proud, thick and weeping, inches from Dylan’s lips. “Are we going to get ‘busy’, then?”
