Welcome to the 93rd week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week’s theme is My Sexy Love. The first thing we thought of with this theme was Hands of Love by Wall of Voodoo. Or how about Corey Hart and Sunglasses at Night. Maybe a little of Art of Noise and Moments in Love. Then there’s the Fine Young Cannibals and She Drives Me Crazy or Chris Issac with Wicked Game. These are the things that help drive writers to write. Music, songs and the people who sing them. And we aren’t forgetting the now generation with songs like Your Love Is My Drug or Like Yesterday and the hundreds of others that remind us each and every day why we write romance.
There is something special in writing about love and how two people, sometimes more, can find how important it is. It’s special to us as writers if we find a song or a series of songs that epitomize that love story.
We can think of hundreds of love stories that have been inspired by music. The characters they produce are the type that live forever. For example, when doing some minor research for this week’s theme, we were taken back in time when we first heard Wicked Game and the thoughts that they brought to mind for stories and scenes within those stories. It was an inspiring moment that a song from the 1980’s could still inspire a sexy thought years later.
The books produced by these inspirations are exciting books that you as a reader just can’t put down and you as an author love writing. We love how you weave your tales to enchant us, to entice us and to leave us with that ‘ah’ moment through the way characters interact with words, situations and each other. Again, we leave the particulars up to you since you do it so, so well. Remember, our sexiness can happen anywhere, anytime, day or night. People fall in love in many different ways. It could be on a date, at a school dance, on a hike, with the boy or girl next door, just anywhere two or sometimes more people or beings are drawn together because of that feeling called love.
We all know that love happens and we want to know all about those special moments where those entities realize there is an emotional bond between one another through their words and actions. It can happen on an average day, during the night, in the middle of a zombie invasion or maybe a place where it’s hard to tell the day from the night like in a submarine or deep in space. Adventures one and all but the one thing we do know it’s going to be hot…hot…HOT! And all about love!
Give readers more to drool over, sigh and love about our work as we share our special love stories with them. Show readers that happily-ever-afters start with some fantastic moments, be it soft and gentle or rough and fast. We love the good parts of the stories where the characters are making love or about to be loved and even the morning after. Forever. We love all the parts that show us the sexy characters we’ve come to care about. Share each and every moment with us this week! Basically, sexy me once! More if you can…we love it all!
If your story has one or more of these fabulous moments with some very sexy, hot characters in a love that’s destined to last forever, please share them with us…share all those sexy moments that you have between your characters even if your story doesn’t exactly fit the theme this week…remember every relationship is important!
Sexy can be anything, such as romantic moments like walks on the beach, a home cooked meal or even in another galaxy. It could be two lovers here on Earth dreaming about the day where they go on a magical vacation to another planet. Or staying right here at one of those wonderful places we can find in our own world.
Readers want to see those characters, the ones who can’t get enough of each other as well as ones who are fighting their way back to being part of the world once again. These are the types of characters they can’t forget, the one they want to take home and keep forever. Readers love the kisses, the looks or touch of each and every one of our characters.
Sexy has nothing to do with looks or status or even wealth. It doesn’t demand perfection and it isn’t pretentious but it does make us want to read those books.
We know that everyone has their own idea of sexy and we all love sexy!
