Kris Pearsonabout this book: This one had a really strange birth. My author friend Bronwen Evans encouraged some of us to enter a Kensington Brava writing contest several years ago. "Come on girls – only twenty pages," or whatever it was. I'd had a rather sweet story in mind about a woman who wanted children and lost her husband at the crucial time, so I wrote twenty pages of that and sent it off. I found out far too late they'd be looking for something much more erotic, but… well… woman wanting children obviously needed someone to make love with. Hmmm… maybe the initial judges might see it had potential. Fired up by this idea I ripped into the rest of it.
Right at that moment, my lovely mother died. She was quite elderly, but losing your mum alters you. Apart from anything else, the gracious lady who'd famously said 'people don't want to read about sex, dear,' was gone. In a weird way, that set me free to write this book and make it plenty sexy.
Just in case the contest judges wanted more, I gave them more. By the time they'd decided on the finalists, I had the whole novella finished. Of course from my first sweet twenty pages I didn't final!
However, a book is a flexible thing. I re-wrote the start to tie it much better to the rest, and then had no idea what to do with it. Send it to an erotic publisher? No – not really my thing, so it sat in the computer for a while until I decided I'd put it up on Amazon and see what happened. As it was so different to anything I'd written before, I put it up under a different author name.
It's a bind being two people. It's hard enough to promote as one. I let the book languish, although a few people found it by accident and it got some enthusiastic reviews.
In the end I unpublished it, rewrote it much more in line with my other books, and republished it as 'Hot for You'. Hotter than my other books for sure, but really just a super-passionate romance. I hope you enjoy it.
