Okay, so here’s my dilemma. I very much loved the graphic sex scenes I added to my first novel, Love Bite. I researched, I studied, I asked for input, I wrote the scene, I studied some more, I asked for opinions from my friends ()thank you guys, I know I drove you insane!), I researched some more, and I did 3 more rewrites!
Then came the day I published Love Bite. Oh I was so proud I like to have lost my mind! This was only 8 days ago and I’m still on cloud 9!!!! I felt fantastic, I felt proud, I felt accomplished, I felt like I had done something meaningful for the first time in forever.
Then came the reviews. Not bad reviews, they were good. But they had issues with the sex scene. Unneccessary! That word resonates in case you’re curious. A lot….
So now I’m on book 2 and I’m dawdling. I’m drawing it out for all its worth because inevitably my characters are going to want to show their love…. Do I censor myself or let myself run wild? That is the question……
