Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Stacia Kane writes novels filled with “...flaming hot sex...” (Romantic Times), “...sizzling romance that heats up every page ...” (Darque Reviews), and “...spicy sex scenes beautiful enough to make you cry and hot enough to steam windows at the same time...” (Michele Lee). She has published more than a dozen romances and urban fantasies, with publishers like Ellora’s Cave, Pocket, Del Rey, and HarperVoyager. Now she opens her bag of tricks to show you how you too can write the scenes that readers crave.
From setting the scene to consummating the union, Stacia takes you all the way. She reveals the tricks of the professional author, step by step (with examples taken from her own and others’ writing), giving practical advice you can use in your own books. Be a Sex-Writing Strumpet is like a master class in erotic fiction. (Jim Macdonald)

2.0 étoiles sur 5 4 on content, but 1 on organization/writing 18 novembre 2012

I should have previewed this book. Had I done that, I would have seen it came from blog posts, and I would have saved five bucks. Don't make my mistake. Preview the book to get the blog address and save your money.

The content is quite good. Kane uses a lot of examples and it's obvious she likes her topic. I learned something from her. If it had been organized more clearly, I would have given the content a five.

But the book seems to have been plucked straight from her blog with no editing at all. For example, there is no table of contents. I understand that fiction books often don't have a table of contents page, but this is supposed to be a reference guide. It seems lazy not to include one, especially because some of us want this in print. (I don't have a Kindle so I can't do electronic bookmarks, and I don't think it should be necessary to flag 25 chapters, squeezing their titles onto sticky notes or whatever.)

There are typos and inconsistencies (btw/BTW, Part One/Part 2, etc). She doesn't know how to close parenthetical material. She refers to "these posts" and "Monday's post" throughout. She admits she is "jumping around a lot." She says we'll get to things "the week after next." (Which chapter the week after next refers to is unclear. Should I put down the book for a week?) It makes for a jarring read and only reminded me that I could have saved my money.

At the end, she writes that she had wanted to write about BDSM, do an interview with a friend, and write about threesomes. But the series was over and she just didn't have time. Why not do that? Why not beef it up?

Her excerpts from her published books are excellent. I've never read Kane before, and I'm not into vampires or magic, but I really enjoyed the excerpts. The high quality of the excerpts made me wonder: does she have an excellent editor or does she just care more about those books than this one?

I read a lot of blogs and understand that blog-speak can be more casual. But this is presented as a book, not a blog. Some editing and polishing would have done this text a world a good. Obviously other readers were not distracted by these issues, but I finished the "book" feeling a bit cheated.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Impressive collection of essays 20 juin 2011

I admit, I picked up this book with a little trepidation. I got my start writing erotica, and I've been crafting sex scenes for over 8 years, with nearly 50 published short stories, novellas, and novels under my belt. I figured I knew just about everything there was to know about writing sex. I was wrong.

Stacia Kane's approach to developing a sex scene blew me away. She takes the time to explain her process in great detail, from the importance of minute details to penning believable dialogue -- just how much chatter is too much in a sex scene, anyway? And if you said it depends on the characters, you're right. Kane does a great job explaining how to make each sex scene unique, so that only this couple, in this moment in time, can be having this encounter.

Following Kane's suggestions will prevent any author from writing sex scenes that read like a formulaic, paint-by-numbers experiment, and will ensure clean, emotional, engaging sex scenes that will speak to readers. This is an impressive collection of essays, which I'd recommend to any author, whether writing in an erotic genre or not.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sex-Writing Strumpet 15 janvier 2011
Par Bernard Lee Deleo - Publié sur
At the time I read 'Be a Sex-Writing Strumpet' I had not been able to sell any of my manuscripts to a publisher. Using 'Strumpet' as a guide, I gave one of my paranormal adventure manuscripts a makeover into an erotic/paranormal and was able to get my first professional writing contract under a penname. It didn't mean much in the way of money but I was able to garner a writing credit I needed. If you've ever considered writing erotica of any genre this is a solid guide for doing it.

Par Allen L. Edwards - Publié sur

I'm trying to write fiction (okay, okay ... no try, only DO) that involves characters having sex, sometimes loudly, certainly often. This book is excellent at pointing out all the things I have been doing wrong (well, writing wrong ... I've been doing sex wrong for a lot longer) and how to get it right.

Stacia Kane writes some really good romantic urban fantasy, with really good sex ... and romance ... and she knows the difference, and why there should BE a difference. Justifying sex in my stories was not a problem for me, but justifying it to the reader, or at least readers not just looking for "stroke stuff" was the trick. It's always about characters. Duh.

Read this book. Become a sex-writing strumpet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 On My Way to Being a Sex-Writing Strumpet! 15 janvier 2011

Several years ago I made the decision to do what I'd wanted to try for years: writing historical fiction. *I* wanted to write `historical fiction.' My characters, however, weren't interested in the stories I wanted to tell; they were far more interested in each other which posed a problem for someone experienced in writing magazine articles and factual historical essays but had never written a sex scene in her life.

Technical resources are, without a doubt, the writer's friend. I have many. But in only two days, my favorite has become BE A SEX-WRITING STRUMPET. And I haven't even completely finished it yet!

There's a reason for that: this book is so valuable to me that I keep going back and re-reading parts of it, then running to my WIP to make sure I'm headed in a satisfying direction with the story and with the tension.

Writing sex scenes was never going to come easy for me. In my own writing, I don't care for "slang" terms or graphic language to describe body parts and functions. I like words (that's why I have worked with them all my life) so I welcome the challenge to build the heat my characters experience, in the language I want to use. Stacia Kane, with her thoughtful understanding of this type of writing, as well as her extraordinary humor, really helps me get there.

This book is actually a compilation of blog posts dedicated to this topic over a period of time. The result is a well-thought-out series of ideas and guidance that are presented in a way that makes you feel as though you are having a conversation with the author. Questions I would ask in such a setting are answered almost before I think of them, which makes it a little unnerving to be reading in public and look up to find everyone staring at you because you were nodding and muttering to yourself. (Color me thankful for my iPod with Kindle app.)

While the book offers great insights into writing good sex scenes, for me its main value lies in guiding the writer to create the actual scene long before the characters get there. The advice on character interaction helped me tighten my story and find weak spots that I could either strengthen or toss, depending on whether I honestly felt they moved the story forward.

I cannot recommend this book enough for beginners needing guidance, or experienced authors who want another perspective. Available in paper and for Kindle.
