Every erotica author harbors a fascinating—often completely unexpected—origin story. And mine just happens to start in the pages of a communications theory textbook.
About two years ago, I was finishing up a Master’s in communication in Washington, DC, and weighing final-semester options. Many of my friends had opted to spend a bulk of their time composing a thesis—which would entail grueling research into a subject of questionable importance, all-night writing and editing sessions, buckets of coffee, and mounds of fast food.
In deference to my psyche (and my hips, which are curvy enough, thank you very much), I decided to use my new knowledge and write something fun—my first erotica novella, Hyperpersonal, Hypersexual, a tech-inspired romance about Juliette Bresson, a sex-deprived adjunct professor, who starts receiving racy sexts, then reciprocates. But from whom are the sexts coming? Well, she’s in for a big surprise.
For those of you who are curious, writing an erotic novella is so much more fun than a research paper! I think I made a good decision there.
A point of personal satisfaction: Now any query for “hyperpersonal” on Amazon.com yields a slew of theory books…and one explosive erotic story. (Just as some background, “hyperpersonal” communication theory suggests that people who make friends in signal-poor environments—like a chatroom or message board—tend to dream up the attributes for these individuals if they aren’t apparent. I discuss this more in the book!)
Hyperpersonal, Hypersexual came out last summer, but now I’m back with M/M/M smut: Sorry, Bro, my second novella, which I’m excited to share with you!
Here are just a few reasons why you won’t want to miss Sorry, Bro when it’s released on June 7:
• Multiple hot M/M scenes • A scorching (and multi-climactic) M/M/M scene • Men in uniform (a surgeon and a nurse, oh my!) • A kiss between two bros in baseball uniforms (yes, more uniforms) • And an adorably happy ending (I promise)
Plus, as a gift to Victoria and her lovely readers, I’m offering a free book to one lucky winner (picked at random) who leaves a comment about what THEY love most about M/M romance. I look forward to hearing from you—and happy reading!
Still aching from the mistakes and denials of his past, this ER nurse could heal anyone but himself…until now.
Handsome, athletic and intelligent, twenty-six-year-old Bryce should be living the high life.
But he’s far from it.
After shunning his best baseball buddy in high school, dropping out of medical school and fleeing New York to put down roots—if only shallow ones—in New Orleans, Bryce is uncertain about both his past and his future. Working long hours as a low-level nurse and confined by a sexless relationship with a questionably devoted girlfriend, Bryce can’t shake the feeling that things should be somehow better now he’s escaped the confusion and indecision of his former life.
Yet when the ghost of Bryce’s high school past, the handsome and charismatic Tim, shows up injured in the ER, Bryce’s already turbulent emotions engulf him in a vortex of confusion and regret. Haunted by his own insensitivity towards Tim eight years before, Bryce first finds comfort in the powerful arms of a resident surgeon he barely knows, then gives Tim the explosive, cataclysmic relief he had denied him in high school. As Bryce comes to terms with his sexuality and recognises his undeniable attraction to both men, he must decide, once and for all, where his fidelity—and his desires—lie.
