The more sins you confess....

"The more sins you confess, the more books you will sell." Ninon de L'Enclos (1620-1705) French Author

Does that mean I need to confess my sins or my characters’?  Hmmm…I’ll start with my characters.
Austin Sinclair – charming star college quarterback who can’t keep it in his pants.  He calls his women baby or sweetheart because he can’t remember names and he doesn’t bother trying.  Even his name is sin.  Blames his father for his wicked ways.  But he’s about to meet the woman who challenges all that.
Jane Elliott – straight-A student, dedicated soccer player, and amazing softball pitcher who has no time for fun. Blames her mother for her repressed and guilt-plagued life.  But when she meets Austin, she makes time for fun. Is he worth the trouble?
Jack Wheeler – solid as a rock running back, dependable as they come best friend who won’t let anyone get close to him. Blames himself for a past tragedy he struggles to keep secret.  He wants to let Sara in, but he doesn’t know how to let the past go.
Sara Jensen – caring, comforting, giving woman who won’t take care of her own needs.  Blames her exes (including Austin) for her inability to trust men.  She knows Jack needs her, but why won’t he trust her?
Amelia James – author of melt-your-face erotic romance who keeps her genre choice secret from the people who know her best.  Blames her repressed upbringing for her current lustful ways.  She wants to tell her family about her books, but will they judge her?
So there you have it—sins galore.  I have lots more to confess, but I can’t do it all at once.  More stories to come—and I mean that in a good way. ;)

  1. My son won't read my book. His wife did. :-) Husband read it. Luckily, his parents don't read. Wait... that's one of the things that bugs me about them. But they don't need to read Make or Break. Nope. Nuh-uh. Basically, I warn people about subject matter, and let them decide if they can deal with it. Some of my straighter-laced friends say they "skim" "those parts." Oh, but those parts want more than skimming! Heh. ;-)

  2. @Lori, I call myself a trashy writer so people can react how they want. My mother would agree (not in a good way), but mother-in-law loves my 'trash'.

    They say they skim those parts, but you know what they say about people who protest too much.... ;)
