Handwritten

I wrote you a letter because it seemed the more elegant way to beg via the old fashioned, classic expression of heartbreak.  There were never any character limits on love letters.

As I wrote of hopes and fears the salt water lubricated the out spill of words, the slippery sliding of pain out of me.  An envelope addressed and stamp bought, a bundle of nerves, doubt and loss dropped into the post box.  Weightless to the postman but  heavy to my heart.  Yet the pain hasn’t gone, not exorcised for being bled out but like blood remaking itself, flowing again and cluttering up my heart with what ifs and if onlys.

My lips are dry and cracked, the tears don’t water them and you tongue doesn’t penetrate them, nor fingers nor cock.  Nothing enters me, it only leaves.  The shopping list of heatbreak; salt, water, pain, words.

Thanks for reading,

The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

What is a blog hop? Basically, it’s a way for readers to discover authors new to them. I hope you’ll find new-to-you authors whose works you enjoy. On this stop on the blog hop, you’ll find a bit of information on me and one of my books and links to four other authors you can explore!

Thanks to fellow author Aisling Weaver for inviting me to participate in this event. You can click the following link to learn more about Aisling and her work. http://www.aislingweaver.com

In this blog hop, I and my fellow authors, in their respective blogs, have answered ten questions about our book or work-in–progress (giving you a sneak peek). We’ve also included some behind-the-scenes information about how and why we write what we write–the characters, inspirations, plotting and other choices we make. I hope you enjoy it!

Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and questions. Here is my Next Big Thing!

1: What is the working title of your book?

Pressed Flesh

2: Where did the idea come from for the book?

It is a book about journalism and sex, inspired by conversations with a journalist friend and the ongoing Leveson Enquirey.

3. What genre does your book come under?

If there was a genre for Erotic Satire, it would be that, but as there isn’t it will  be erotica.

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Robbie Coltrane as the moral-less tabloid editor, Mark Williams or Timothy Spall for the reporter and Rebecca Hall as the dominatrix.

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Corrupt tabloid editor outwitted by professional dominatrix and lowly reporter.

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?

I’m going to submit it to an independent publisher.

7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I’m still writing, actually I’m not writing at all at the moment, I’m in the last month of planning Eroticon, the UK’s conference for sex bloggers and erotica writers.

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I don’t think you get much satire in erotica, though there is certainly an echo of Tom Sharpe in my head when I write.

9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?

The inspiration came from a journalist friend and their tales of the newsrooms of Fleet Street and Wapping, as ever the truth that never gets published is much darker than the fiction that does.

10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

I had the opening scene and the closing scene in my head before I had anything else, the latter involves a curly pig tail butt-plug.

Below you will find authors who will be joining me by blogging, next Wednesday. Do be sure to bookmark and add them to your calendars for updates on WIPs and New Releases! Happy Writing and Reading!

Eroticon 2013 meet and greet

Is it only 12 months since I was last posting a meet and greet for Eroticon?

This year the conference is  bigger and, I hope, better.  Two days of workshops and discussions dedicated to encouraging attendees to write sex right.  After all if we as bloggers and writers don’t lead by example what hope do we have of influencing the discourse of sex in the media and our communities.  But that’s another rant for another day.

Today’s post is a little introduction to me to encourage a little introduction from you.

To join in – cut and paste the questions into your blog and replace my answers with yours, then head back here and drop your blog post URL into the linky widget.  Don’t forget to link back to this blogpost so we can all find each other:

See who else is coming to Eroticon 2013 in the Meet & Greet link up

Name: Ruby Kiddell

Twitter id: @eroticnotebook @writesexright

Must attend Eroticon 2013 session: Opening plenary by Brook – our conference charity.

Bloggers you’d like to be trapped in the lift with: I’m going to cheat and choose four – Remittance Girl, Harper Eliot, Zoe Margolis and Lori Smith

Erotic writer you’d like to write dramatize your life story: I’d like Guy New York, as long as he transposed the action to New York.

Expected biggest fangirl / fanboy moment: Cindy Gallop’s closing plenary on Sunday.

What keeps you awake at nights? A child that doesn’t sleep, a cat that bites my nose and worries that I’ve forgotten an unspecified but VERY IMPORTANT piece of admin.
