It’s been so long since I wrote a blog post, I’m actually embarrassed. The whole of last year passed by without me writing even a couple of lines – in fact, I didn’t even blog about Eroticon 2013, which I’m deeply ashamed about.
My excuses are that last year was mainly taken up by pregnancy and then a small baby called Summer, and needing to focus on my non-erotic work which I write in my married name, Marissa Farrar.
This year, however, I want to refocus on my erotic work, an art I still love, even though it doesn’t sell as well as my urban fantasy and paranormal romance novels. I have a couple of books out this year, a full length erotic romance novel, Survivor, plus the continuation of my serial, Model, Wanted. It’s because of this that I am looking forward to attending Eroticon 2014. I hope to be re-inspired and reinvigorated by my fellow erotic writing colleagues, plus help sharpen up some of my erotic writing skills. As an introduction to everyone, the organiser has arranged for us all to answer a few simple questions so we’ll know eacho ther a little better before we even arrive. So here’s my Q&A!
What’s your name?
M.K. Elliott or Marissa Farrar. I write erotica and contemporary romance as M.K., and urban fantasy as Marissa. Neither are technically pen names, as M.K. Elliott is just my maiden name. Confused yet? You can just call me Marissa.
What are you most looking forward to about Eroticon 2014?
Am I allowed to say a whole day without the kids? No, I’m only kidding … I’m looking forward to meeting up with friends old and new, and leaving with the buzz I always get from attending Eroticon.
What are you most nervous about Eroticon 2014?
Being completely honest, I’m most nervous about leaving my six month old baby for the first time for any length of time! I know that’s probably silly, but I will miss her!
What do you hope to get from Eroticon?
I want to be inspired to refocus on my erotic work and take my writing to a new level in 2014.
What is your bad erotica writing pen name?
Either Amulet De Quenelle or Amulet Debased!
