- While attending a summer writing workshop at Humber College, my tutor, D.M.Thomas, said that I write 'great sex without metaphor,which isn't easy to do.' I made my mind up to become an erotica writer. My first erotica novel, 'Wild Card' was published in 2006. A section from the novel was selected by Scarlet Magazine for 'best oral sex scene' and, as a friend pointed out, an award-winning author was born! My second Black Lace novel, 'Amanda's Young Men' was released in the UK in July, 2008 and in North America in March, 2009. My third novel for Black Lace, 'Sarah's Education,' was published July 2, 2009 in the UK and briefly hit the number one spots on Amazon.co.uk's adult fiction and adult romance best seller lists. It became available in North America on September 1, 2009. Jade Magazine bestowed the 'best cover art, 2009' award on 'Sarah's Education'. In 2009 Humber College invited me to speak at the summer writers' workshop on a panel called, 'Success Stories.' And so the circle closes.

My second Black Lace novel, Amanda's Young Men, is available now in the UK.
Since Wild Card, my first, was published, a few of my short stories have appeared in anthologies, so I'm starting to get used to the peculiar feeling of being a published author, but the launch of a novel is still a big deal.
My author copies, alas, are lost in the mail, so I haven't yet been able to crack open the book and inhale the aroma of my new book. I can hardly wait.
When Wild Card arrived, I admit I spent most of the weekend reading my own book. I'll probably do the same again, though it's embarrassing to admit. Though it might be nice to be cool, like my paramour Felix Baron, who barely glances at the cover of his latest novel before piling his author copies into the 'author copy' drawer in our office, and getting back to work on his new stuff, I'm not nor ever will be as cool as he, and make no bones about it.
I don't drink anymore so there'll be no popping of champagne corks, no launch parties, no book signings...but...
my porno pals at Lust Bites will be celebrating the UK release of Amanda's Young Men all day today! Yay for Amanda, Yay for me, and Yay Yay Yay for Lust Bites!
Come join in the fun, post a comment, and you just might win a signed copy (when my author copies arrive.)
kisses from me to you, xoxo Mad.
