Passionate Reads is very pleased to welcome today’s guest, author CHERYL DRAGON …
Yes, in one way I’m talking about sex and even lovers! This year I’ve really gotten into writing ménage + and have three difference series going for it! Next year I am planning a little more BDSM with two person couples into my writing but oddly enough, I’m loving the ménage +! I won’t stop writing those.
A reader at the conference that I just attended told me she didn’t like ménage + because that must wear the woman out! I saw her point of view and explained the approach I take in my ménage + stories is that most of the men are bisexual (the odd straight guy might sneak in there at times). So all the men are not only sexually interested in the woman. They share each other too. The heroine can have all of the men’s attention if she wants and then sit back and watch the men screw each other for a while! Really, is four men too many?
The reader seemed to like that approach and hopefully she’ll give ménage another try. Even if she doesn’t, it made me think about more. It can be good or bad. A lot of it has to do with the approach.
We all feel like we should be doing more! For others, for ourselves, for charity etc…but if we’re always giving, we’ll end up like that heroine who does all the work. Exhausted instead of appreciated.
Like my solution for the ménages, more isn’t just about giving. It’s about creating the right group, connections, and circumstances to allow more to work for you. Support when you need it and chances to help when you can. I want to look at the positives of more.
Since I’ve been writing full time, I’ve had the chance to put more into my writing. Write more books. Add another publisher. I expanded to writing for Changeling. I’ve also been able to do more promotion.
Luckily, I was invited to participate in the Love Hangover contest. The best part is I’m not alone! Four Changeling authors who write ménage, m/m and bisexual erotic romances banded together to giveaway goodies and help promote each other’s new summer releases!

I went to RT earlier this year and I just got back from the Reader and Authors Get Together (aka Lori Foster event) in Ohio. Lots of Changeling authors were there and supporting each other. Megan Slayer http://wendizwaduk.com/indexMegan.htm and I pimped the Love Hangover contest and each other’s books at a table that got a lot of traffic! Readers could tell we were having fun!
Too much of a good thing? Sure, we can always go overboard. Food, liquor, men…If I had four hot men like the heroines in my books…I’d never get any writing done! I can’t live without writing so I’d try to juggle all of that. Love to try! In real life it might be overwhelming. In the wonderful world of fiction, the heroine and hero(es) get that fantasy world…especially the happy ending! Exactly what we’re all looking for!
Which is why Love Hangover is such an appropriate name for the contest. Check out the four of us (Cheryl Dragon, Megan Slayer, Renee George, Ayla Ruse) and hopefully win something! http://romance-the-night.com/lovehangover/
See how many men you can handle in your fantasies! For now, I stand by the title of more is better…
