Today I'd like to welcome author Lucy Felthouse
to Fallen Angel Reviews. Thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions for us today Lucy
To start, please tell us a little bit about yourself.
My erotic writing has been published by Cleis Press, Noble Romance, Ravenous Romance and Xcite Books, with more coming this year. You can find out more at my site. I also run my own business, Writer Marketing, where I create websites and do PR & Marketing, amongst other things. Find out more here.
Tell us about your latest book. What's the title and when will it be released?
My F/F erotic romance tale, Bite with Height, was released by Noble Romance on 6th June. It's set in Paris, where vampire Meg has set up residence in one of the city's most famous buildings. One evening, she spots Grace sitting alone and befriends her. The pair hit it off, and before long their friendship is developing into something more.
What is the most challenging part of writing for you?
Staying focused. I have a horrible habit of checking emails, Facebook and Twitter when I come to a pause in my writing, and then I get distracted. What should be a few seconds interlude can become much longer. I'm getting more disciplined as time goes on, though.
How long have you been writing?
I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I always had a pen and paper in my hand as a child. But it wasn't until I studied creative writing at university that I wrote something to submit for publication. My first publication was in 2006 and it spurred me on to keep writing - and here I am!
What is your favorite type of genre to read? To write?
I love to read erotica, erotic romance, chick lit and paranormal stuff. Plus any combination of those genres! I write erotica and erotic romance at the moment, with subgenres including contemporary, f/f and paranormal.
How important is research in your writing?
Not very. Although I'd like to branch out in the future, at the moment I tend to write contemporary and paranormal stuff featuring places I'm familiar with, so no research is necessary.
Where would you say that you get your most creative ideas?
They usually creep up on me when I least expect it. More often than not, though, I get ideas either in the shower or while I'm driving. Both of these are, of course, terribly inconvenient because I can't write them down. So I just have to hope I can keep the ideas in my head long enough to get to a pen and paper!
If you could ask readers any one question, what would it be?
What am I doing right (so I can do more of it!) and what am I doing wrong (so I can stop/improve)!
Could you tell us what you're currently working on?
I'm currently working on several calls for submissions, putting together an erotic mythology anthology and doing websites and PR & Marketing for several clients. There's never a dull moment!
If you could go back in time, where would you go and when? What is one thing you would want to take with you?
Ooh, fab question! I think I'd like to go back to the 70s. The music was awesome and just seems like a cool, laid back time. And as for what I'd take with me - a pen and paper, of course. I know that's two items, but I can't really use one without the other!
What is the wackiest job you can think of that you would like to do?
I'd quite like to work in a zoo. I adore most animals and would love to be able to give them cuddles and feed them!
Is there anything else you would like to add today or any links where readers can find you?
Thanks for having me guys, it's been a real pleasure!
You can find out more about my writing on my website. For information on my business, check out Writer Marketing. I'm also on Facebook and Twitter.
Thank you so much for spending time with us today Lucy
