The Pitfalls of Writing Erotic Romance in a Series / P Nelson @pnelsonwrites

The Pitfalls of Writing Erotic Romance in a Series
By P Nelson

One of the most popular genres of today is erotic fiction and books written in a series occupy most of the market share. This is because readers like myself, have invested time, energy and yes very real tears when we read how our heroes and heroines manage to finally achieve their happily ever afters.

The problem for authors is introducing these characters back into the story line of the current hero and heroine without detracting from the new story and without giving the old characters too onerous a problem they cannot solve without a major plotline of their own. After all, the new story is just that. A new love interest and a whole other set of problems for the characters to face.

How do I manage to weave established characters in my Doms of the cage Series? Sometimes with great difficulty. For example I have a running on/off Dom/sub couple who will eventually have their happily ever after, but I have invested so much plot line to them my readers are demanding the book appear sooner than I originally intended. The problem is that if I publish their story early the whole arc of the series will be ruined.

Hopefully, my latest novel The Heart of the Matter will be more of a success as the main characters from Take My Hand once again make a supporting role appearance along with the other quirky members of the Cage. There are some authors who come back to write further novels involving characters who have achieved their happily ever after, but they walk a fine line between ruining the original plot line of the story and enhancing the character development. When done correctly, the addition of previous heroes and heroines in a series can really take a series from good to great!

About the Author

P Nelson has just started her journey in Erotic Romance this year with her debut novel Take My hand. The Rehabilitation of Master Dillon is a prequel novel to Take My Hand focusing on the character of Master Dillon. Nelson calls Vancouver her hometown and is married with one young daughter.

About the Book:

Author: P Nelson
Publisher: Independent
Pages: 205
Genre: Erotic Romance/BDSM

Eric Danvers thought he had found the perfect submissive before she was swept right out of his arms.

Now pining after the one woman he can’t have, Master Eric finds himself stuck in a gruelling cycle of emotional torture that has nothing to do with his BDSM lifestyle. Just as he was about to take a hiatus from The Cage and the lifestyle altogether, Master Eric is asked to take on the role of training Dom for one of the new subs. Rather than agreeing, he’s coerced into the role and finds there’s more to his new training sub than meets the eye.

Elizabeth Williams is a sub on a mission.

Elizabeth Williams has read every single book on BDSM she can get her hands on, and she feels as if this is the lifestyle for her. After saving up for an entire year and working an extra job, she finally had enough money to enter the couples training program at the most exclusive BDSM club in Vancouver. Unfortunately, as soon as Elizabeth and her boyfriend are accepted, he decides that he wants a different sub. Elizabeth decides not to let go of her dream and enters the submissive training program.

Master Eric soon finds that Elizabeth Williams may be more sub than he can handle. He loves her brattiness, but he knows it hides a pool of inner hurt that cried out to his Dom instincts to heal. Elizabeth falls for Mater Eric as soon as she meets him and really believes she cannot help her brattiness. She wants to give him her true submission, but she might not be able to set aside her past hurts to move on. Read the story of Master Eric and Elizabeth in The Heart of the Matter.
