Wired.com’s Geek Dad is a pretty spiffy site all about.. well, geek parenting. There’s a lot of dudes, but among the writers is one Corrina Lawson, who wrote about romance writers after the 2009 RWA Convention.
Corrina has a new column up all about writing romance, writing erotica, and what erotic romance is, exactly:
I didn’t set out to write romance novels. I set out to write stories that would relax my mind after a long day of dealing with four kids.
I’m not the sort of mom who treats herself with an afternoon of shopping or a visit to the spa. No, I’m the sort of mom who runs to my computer and makes up stories….
I want to write stories that satisfy both romance readers and SF/F readers. A tall order but it’s what I like to read myself and there’s not enough of it for those like me. I figure the attempt is worth it. I’m thrilled that today marks the public beginning of all this.
Lawson’s story, “Freya’s Gift” is on sale today (happy on sale day, Corrina!) – and mad props to Wired.com for hosting a discussion about romance, erotic romance, and geek women writers – of which we are many!
