Hi, there. My name is E. A. Black, and my birthday is in three days. March 14.
It's also Steak and BJ Day. Oh, joy.
I normally assess my life progress around New Year's Day but the panic really sets in on my birthday. Thursday is also Steak and BJ Day. Steak and BJ Day is the dude's answer to Valentine's Day. Guys who put out for chocolates, fancy dinners, and flowers on Valentine's Day demand payback exactly one month later. They want steak. BJs. Toss in some beer. . . They're easy to please
Since I'm fortunate enough to have my birthday fall on Steak and BJ Day, I can't help but think about my sex writing. I have one story with Mocha Memoirs Press called "Alicia". That one is a short romantic horror story. Most of what I've written is erotica, erotic romance, and non-fiction sex articles.
Yes, I make my living writing smut. :)
"Alicia" is sort of related to this writing in that it's a sweet (albeit dark) romance. "Sweet" means "no sex". You won't find my characters doing the backseat Mambo in that particular story. You'll find explicit sex in my other short stories, novels, and novellas. My question for myself on my birthday is this: Do I want to continue writing erotic fiction and non-fiction?
Yes, but I want to expand. My horror has been getting published over the past year. "Alicia" was one of the first stories, published October, 2012. I got the idea from an episode of "Medium". Remember that old TV show, starring Patricia Arquette? Alicia is a young, kind woman whose abusive husband regularly beats her to a bloody pulp. She's trying to get out of the marriage intact. Her good friend Eric - who is in love with her - comes to her rescue when she flees home in the middle of the night. But things are not what they seem, as always is the case in stories like this one. Here's a brief excerpt:
Things only get worse from that point on.
This year, in honor of my birthday, I plan to achieve the following:
1. Finish my erotic novel "Alex Craig Has A Threesome".
2. Finish my horror novel "Hell Time".
3. Walk on the beach more often this spring, summer, and fall.
4. Publish more erotic fairy tales.
5. Do more book readings.
Being born on Steak and BJ Day makes me think about sex and writing. I have my work cut out for me this year.
