Husbands say the darndest things (at least mine does)…

Over the many years that I’ve been writing, my husband has had a few things to say about my writing, especially erotic romance. I thought I’d share a few of his special gems:

Before I started writing erotic romance:  “You missed your calling. You should be writing screw books. [Your novel] gave me a raging hard-on.”

After my first erotic romance was accepted for publication: “I told you! You never listen to me.”

Before he read Intimate Submission, my first erotic romance: “I taught her everything she knows.”

After he read Intimate Submission:  “I don’t know where she gets this.”

Other comments:

“You know everybody will think we’re doing this stuff, don’t you?”

“I don’t mind if you write this stuff as long as you’re not out doing field research.”

“I’m proud of you. You don’t have anything to be embarrassed about. I don’t mind if you tell the neighbors as long as you tell them it’s fiction.”

While looking at my first royalty check: “We’re going to have to win the lottery.”

And my favorite gem of all: “Your crap is just as good as their crap.”

    My hubby says the same stuff!!! Wow! One comment he says the most, “I posed for the cover and they just airbrushed it a little bit.” Oh, brother.
