Author Leigh Ellwood Writing Different parings and not PNR (MM/FF/MF) Guest Post
Posted by Bookswagger
I am Leigh Ellwood and I write erotica and erotic romance. In the last two months I had new releases from Decadent Publishing (A Different Class) and Ellora’s Cave (Sugar Rush). My Decadent story is M/M and my EC story is F/F. You might ask yourself, “Isn’t it unusual for an author to write different pairings?”
In short: probably. I’ve seen it happen, but I think I’m more diverse than others.
At the beginning of the year, I had resolved to write more. What author doesn’t do that? Yes. I went a bit further in that, though, by pledging to write stories as they came to me, regardless of genre or pairing. Forrest Gump says like is a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. Me, I love chocolate and like to pick from the box at random. I love readers who do the same.
In January I resolved to write the following. It’s July, and here’s how I’ve done:
One F/F romance novella – written and published – get links here
One M/M short – written and published – get links here
One M/F serial with a BBW heroine – still working
One short with a transgender heroine – still working
One could argue I am “hitting for the cycle” here. In baseball, this term defines when a batter is able to hit a single, double, triple, and home run in the same game. It’s a rare accomplishment, but it happens – most recently in the MLB in 2012. As a writer, I strive to offer readers a variety of stories and pairings. I could eventually settle with one style like many authors do, but I suffer from horrible plot bunnies – some ideas require a specific pairing. For me, hitting for the cycle would mean publishing romances with different pairings: a hetero couple, a same-sex couple, a menage.
It looks like I’m off to a good start, though. I just need a good menage idea. Even then, do I go MFM, MMF…?
About Leigh Ellwood
I am Leigh Ellwood. I write smutty stories about people who like getting naked and having sex. Some have more sex than others, some have sex with people of the same gender, some have sex with more than one person, and still others have sex with toys and things that require the use of batteries. My stories range from a few thousand words to well past 70k. My books are available at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, and ARe. Really, just type my name in any bookstore site and something is bound to show up.
