1. Welcome Emily Cale. Tell us a little about yourself.
First, I want to thank you for having me on your blog today.
It's always hard to figure out what to say about myself. I'm a PhD student by a day and an erotic romance writer by night.
2. What is the genre you have chosen to write and why?
As I said before, I write erotic romance. As for why, that's a far more difficult question. For a number of years, I jumped around writing different genres. None of them really felt right or stuck for me though. I discovered erotica writing while snowed in and thought, "Hey, I could do that." It was (of course) much harder than I thought. It was a good fit for me though and I've been writing it ever since.
3. You have a release tomorrow, November 30th 2011 titled Honeymoon Suite. Please, tell us all about it.
Honeymoon Suite is a short story that follows Laurie and Matt, a couple who have been waiting until their wedding night to have sex for the first time. I like to think that it is both sweet and very hot. The idea for this came to me after talking to a bunch of my friends who are in a similar position to the main characters in the story. I really wanted to capture not all the physical, but the emotional aspects of that night.
4. When writing, what is your favorite snack?
Does coffee count as a snack? Probably not. Okay, then anything salty. I have an unhealthy relationship with things like pretzels, chips, and popcorn.
5. Are you a morning or night writer?
I'm a night writer only because that is what fits with my schedule. If I had my way, I'd write very early in the morning and be done with everything by lunch. I have other things on my plate (like my day job) that keep me from really being able to do this.
6. What is your biggest challenge as an author?
Shutting out the voice in my head. I'm still learning to overcome the little voice in the back of my mind that keeps telling me that my work isn't good enough. It's a hard things, but I've found that often turning off the internet and focusing on my work (instead of what everyone else is doing) is a big help.
7. What is the favorite book of yours that you've written?
Well, normally whatever one I've just finished is my favorite at the moment, but I have to say that TAMED will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first real piece I submitted anywhere, my first contract, and my first release.
8. And finally, anything else you'd like to share?
Thanks so much for having me here today. I really enjoyed answering these questions and hanging out. Honeymoon Suite comes out tomorrow (yay!) from Ellora's Cave.
Blurb for Honeymoon Suite:
Laurie had practically given up on finding someone who was willing to save sex for marriage. Then she found Matt, an amazingly wonderful and sexy man who was willing to wait until after they said “I do.” Now that the ceremony and reception have finally ended, she can’t wait to get him up to their hotel room, hang up the “Do Not Disturb” sign, and spend the night acting out all the dirty fantasies that have filled her head since their engagement.
Matt can’t think of anything he wants more than to please his new wife. She’s always been shy and private, but on their wedding night, she turns into an irresistible vixen. Nothing would make him happier than spending the entire night exploring every curve of her luscious body.
The two newlyweds are finally alone together and the whole evening lies ahead. Laces and buttons will come undone, and Matt and Laurie will find out if their wedding night will be everything that they’ve been waiting for.
Emily Cale spent the majority of her childhood as a visitor to the worlds of her favorite authors. With encouragement from her English teachers, she put pen to paper and began imagining her own stories. Preferring the fascinating lives of her characters, she majored in creative writing. When not lost in a manuscript or a good book, she enjoys crocheting, rock climbing, and playing board games. She currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her husband and a very spoiled cat. You can find her on her blog (http://www.emilycale.blogspot.com) or procrastinating on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/EmilyCale)
