I'm working on a novel, actually I'm working on two novels, one is for juveniles and the other is erotica. Maybe it's the Gemini in me loving to deal with two extremes. I would like to publish the juvenile book under my name but the erotica under a pseudonym (hopefully to be kept under wraps). I haven't told people about the erotica book because it makes people think about you differently. I definitely have not told my family. I wonder how they would feel or what they would think. Can you imagine how that conversation would play out?? AWKWARD!!!
MOM: When are you going to let me read this book you've been working on
ME: Well I'm not sure if it's your type of book
MOM: Of course I would want read your book. You're a talented writer
ME: Well...uhh....it's sort-of a adult romance type book
MOM: So you wrote a SEX BOOK???
And it will only gets worse from there. I can imagine with E.L. James trying to explain to her teenage sons about her book. Hopefully they are not getting teased at school. However when you write this type of book (or any type of book) you open yourself up to some criticism. I better be up to the challenge. I'll eventually have to tell my mom
