Mad Props to Wired.com’s Geek Dad

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!

    SBSarah, one thing I love about your site is when you introduce us to new sites, ideas, acronyms I can’t decipher (although I found an online dictionary that will sometimes help) and columns/writers like Corrina Lawson. 

    Props to both of you.

    But what’s World Con?

    Yeah, my editor was wonderful to let me do the article. I did try to target it to all the geeks girls and women out there, so it had some appeal even if you don’t want to (horrors!) read my book. :)

    Thanks so much, Sarah, for giving Wired a shout-out.

    I actually think there are just a a few singles that study really well from a usability place of view. Virtually of them are difficult to read /find as the conflict with the backdrop.
