The Virgin Romance Novelist

Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch… Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave?

God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch. I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience. My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups. But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…

Link to my 5+ Star review of Cover Him With Darkness


1009455Janine Ashbless

Janine Ashbless is a writer of fantasy erotica and steamy romantic adventure – and that’s “fantasy” in the sense of swords ‘n’ sandals, contemporary paranormal, fairytale, and stories based on mythology and folklore.  She likes to write about magic and mystery, dangerous power dynamics, borderline terror, and the not-quite-human.

Janine has been seeing her books in print ever since 2000, and her novels and single-author collections now run into double figures. She’s also had numerous short stories published by Black Lace, Nexus, Cleis Press, Ravenous Romance, Harlequin Spice, Storm Moon, Xcite, Mischief Books, and Ellora’s Cave among others. She is co-editor of the nerd erotica anthology Geek Love.

Her work has been described as: “hardcore and literate” (Madeline Moore) and “vivid and tempestuous and dangerous, and bursting with sacrifice, death and love.”   (Portia Da Costa)

Author Interview

Wow I feel honored to have the chance to interview Janine Ashbless! She is a very very talented writer of erotica and paranormal romance. You must read her latest Cover Him With Darkness.  I rated it a solid 5 stars!

What inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, since being a kid. I also wanted to be a veterinarian, mind, so that’s not always a good indicator! But in my twenties, when I got my first job, I made friends with a group of people who got together regularly to read out short stories they’d written, so that kick-started my real writing and gave me my first feedback.

What are some of your favorite books?

“The Bloody Chamber” (Angela Carter), “Till We Have Faces” (C S Lewis), “The Tombs of Atuan” (Ursula K LeGuin), “Doomsday Book” (Connie Willis), “Into Thin Air” (John Krakauer). The short horror stories of M R James and HP Lovecraft. I read YA, graphic novels and lots of non-fiction.

Will there be more books following Cover Him with Darkness?

I really hope so! It’s intended to be the first of a trilogy which will end with a full-on confrontation between the Hosts of Heaven and the Fallen Angels. I have huge, terrifying, globe-spanning plot elements planned. It all depends how Cover Him with Darkness is received J

What made you drawn to the Book of Enoch and the story of Azazel?

I’d always been fascinated by the line in Genesis 6:1-2 : “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the Sons of God saw the daughters of man, that they were fair. And they took them wives of all which they chose.” It’s a throwaway line just before the Flood story and it makes you think “What the heck? Who? What is going on there?!”

So I found out.

Do you enjoy writing paranormal romance or erotica more?

I like writing erotica because as a genre it’s more freeform, with fewer rules – but bear in mind that I often write “erotica” which has a romantic emotional driver, or is about love in some way. When I do write genre “romance” (which is also something I enjoy immensely, don’t get me wrong!) I think I push and subvert the rules and expectations somewhat. And I pull in elements from other genres – thriller, horror, epic fantasy etc.

Which book has been your favorite to write?

It’s always whatever’s my latest book that’s my favorite to write, because I’m so caught up in the plot and longing to write – or find out – what happens next. Is that cheating? Honestly, I don’t write books that I don’t love.
