I just found out last week that my publisher and editor are ready to go to work on my third erotica romance novella called MATCHPOINT. Below is a synopsis!

"After the grief and sadness of losing her mother to cancer, Kelly musters up the courage to move from her home state of New Jersey to the warmer climate of Hilton Head, South Carolina. Leaving her lucrative real estate career behind, Kelly embarks upon her lifelong dream of being a full time mystery writer. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would meet, let alone fall in love with Patrick, her gorgeous and sexy tennis instructor. What starts as innocent flirting, quickly becomes the most erotic sexual relationship she has ever had. But just when things really start steaming up, two jealous and dangerous tennis club employees hatch a plot and implement a plan that breaks them apart. Saddened and thinking there’s no hope of getting Kelly back, an unexpected conversation with his neighbor gives Patrick information that will not only get revenge on the two employees, but will hopefully get Kelly back into his life and his bed again"

Before I started writing erotica romance, I spent three years learning the craft of song lyric writing. Although it was an enjoyable experience and I learned a lot from some great Nashville songwriters, I knew I would never become a great lyric writer. But that's OK. Learning the craft and spending many hours in the creative process was very fullfilling.

As I look back on that experience now as a published author, I respect the songwriting process even more  when I listen to the radio. I think that I am a much better erotica romance writer than a lyric writer, but even if my books don't become popular with readers, I will still always enjoy the creativity of the writing.process.

Greetings Chelsea,
Tina Patterson has submitted feedback for ESCAPE.
Rating 5 / 5
Content I entered reading this book with a very open mind. Since normally this is not my type of book to read. But with each word I was captivated. It was exhilarating how the author allowed you to feel the arousal of what was going on in each chapter. I also love the way how the characters were meeting and having their rendezvous and enjoying each other. This is truly a fantasy of which you can see how the author is writing an enjoying what they have put down into words. This is a book I truly would recommend to people who I know would read this and truly enjoy what they are reading. The wording in this book was truly explicit but I believe in order for the author to convey what is going on it did have to be very descriptive. It was very nice how she took you to each story and showed chance meetings between people whether in work or just everyday meetings. How many people have hidden inhibitions to do just what happened in many of the stories and how everythin g panned out in the end. I would have liked to see that perhaps in some of the stories that some of them had another meeting in a future time. But in all I would say that this is very well written and I have enjoyed it. One I had picked it up I really could stop reading this it was too much for me to put down so I just kept reading it cause it truly was a book that I enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this.
Would you buy this ebook? Yes
How much would you pay? 8.99

As a new published author, I sometimes find it overwhelming  how much there is to learn in the publishing industry. This weekend I went to the Heart of Caroline Romance Writers seminar in which Bob Mayer, CEO of Cool Gus Publishing and long time author was the speaker. Although I learned may things from his presentation, there was one thing he said that stood out, as it relates to sometimes being overwhelmed with learning something new. Even as successful as he is as an author and how long he's been in the publishing industry, he said that when he goes to seminars or conventions, sometimes he wants to throw himself off a bridge. I took that to mean that sometimes you get so overwhelmed by the information that you are receiving, that it makes you feel  like what's the point? Of course the opposite is true. Sometimes you can walk away from these things feeling highly motivated and charged, which Bob expressed as well.  It's nice to know that someone who is highly successful in his craft, can sometimes feel like a slug, just like the rest of us do sometimes! Bottom line, keep pressing on!

I was reading the NY Times Sunday book review section yesterday. In the Open Book section, writer John Williams explored the notion of whether sex scenes should be hilarious and not so serious. I like my characters to have hilarious moments in their conversation and their relationship, but when it comes to having sex, I prefer it to be steamy. With that said, I think I would prefer the word FUN vs Hilarious when it comes to having sex. I want my characters to have fun, but steamy sex. For me as an erotica writer, I find that most rewarding to write and to read!
