I write erotica for my pleasure and yours. I've been doing it for a long time. It gets my juices going, puts a glow in my cheeks, a smile on my lips and when I am really on, a prance to my step. But I've been reticent until now to share it with the world. For so many reasons, not the least of which is that I have a life, other books as well as entrepreneurial endeavors that don't necessarily jive with writing about bondage and discipline and hot sex.
But then things starting happening. EL James publishes 50 Shades of Grey and makes erotica, specifically that in the BDSM genre, mainstream. Everywhere I turn there is another article about whose reading this stuff and who is writing it. Then one day I download a delightful satire of the fairy tale entitled Fifty Shades of Alice in Wonderland. I read that the author is, like me, an author of other books, but is doing this under a pen name. That's when I decided it was time for my erotica to come out of hiding.
I published The Bondage Virgin on September 23, 2012, the first in a trilogy chronicling the relationship of Rebecca and Will under the pseudonym Veronica J. Dantes. I created a Twitter profile for her, an Amazon author page and a Goodreads account. And then I thought, why stop there? Veronica needs a blog, a place to muse, to lounge, to share erotic tidbits, a place on the Internet she can call home. Which brings me to today and my first post on Erotic Musings.
I have no idea how often I, and by that I mean Veronica, will be posting here or exactly what Erotic Musings will look. But that is the great thing about creating something new. I don't have to. All I have to do is start. Besides, when writing under a pseudonym no one is really watching! Or are they?
