Welcome to another edition of Sexy Saturday! Today’s sexy guest is fellow Carnal Passions author Jophrael L Avario!
Let’s jump right in with the author bio:
Born in Sydney in 1990, Jophrael Avario discovered a love of reading at a tender age, teethed on the like of Steven King, Victoria Cromwell and Patricia Cornwell. Jophrael started writing erotica at 17, and has 3 books published by Carnal Passions (Blood Lovers, Dust to Dust and Cleaning Up).
And now for the five sexy quickie questions!
1) What was your first experience with erotica / erotic romance?
Lots and lots of Harry Potter fanfic from the time I was 13. Didn’t take me long to find the saucier stories.
2) Describe your journey from reading to writing to publication.
Long, hard, and filled with a lot of drafts for my librarian and deputy principal to read. I was first published at 19, so almost all of my books passes through my school teachers’ hands at one time or another.
3) What scene or book was the biggest challenge to write?
Every book is a struggle, more so as I get older and real life begins to interfere. But the hardest scenes are definitely the end ones – I never know when to end the story and when to keep going.
4) Do you have any tips or advice for aspiring writers of erotica / erotic romance?
Make sure you get lots of practice so you can make what you’re writing seem real (take that whatever way you want).
5) Tell us a bit about your latest release.
It’s not my latest release (that’s a M/F time-travel romance), but Blood Lovers is my best-selling book.
A boy is lost in the world, ostracised for his sexuality. He’s saved from a suicide attempt but a suave, sexy man who whisks him away to his mansion. But the outside world tries to tear them apart, and they fight back – with sexy results.
Ooo! In my opinion, “sexy results” are always the best results!
