Blog Bites with Victoria Black

VictoriaI’d like to introduce today’s bite, Victoria Black.

I write: 
erotic romances. Any genre that takes my fancy. So far I’ve written and had e-published a World War Two Historical, and a Fantasy. I have two Contemporaries on the go.
I’m from: just outside Brisbane
Three words to describe me: Social, Often Lazy
At home I cook:  anything low in carbs. Yet another diet. Sigh.
My worst habit is: I start projects full of enthusiasm but often run out of steam. It’s that afore-mentioned lazy streak, I’m afraid.
It’s a bit daggy but I love: reading the Fifty Shades trilogy. LiesAndSeduction_125x190
My first job was: working Saturday mornings at Woolworths at Coorparoo, back when it was set up a little like in “Are You Being Served? 
My day job is: (big smug smile, as I write this) NO JOB. I AM RETIRED. 
Three things people might not know about me are: I used to work as an extra on various TV ads, movies, and TV shows; I worked briefly as a deck hand on a prawn trawler; I caught buses around Mexico when I knew about ten words of Spanish.  
Plotter or panster: My style seems to be I’m a panster, then wish I’d been a plotter, as I have to go back to the start and re-write the whole book. 
I would most like to meet: my old classmates, after I’ve lost another five kilos and maybe had a touch of botox.
 
HeavenlyRevenge_SM  Why I write: I get to write the books I’d love to read. It’s a bit laborious, really, and it would be a lot easier if     someone else would do it. You know – I tell my pet author the gist of the story I want, and she writes it. But I jest. I went into writing romance for all the wrong reasons, mainly the idea that I’d make a ton of money. I doubt that will happen, with all the wonderful authors out there, but I’ve surprised myself by finding I actually love writing.
  Latest project: I’m half  way through an erotic contemporary, currently and boringly entitled “Blue Sea” (It’ll change), which is written entirely from a man’s point of view. My husband will come in handy as an editor.

    Hi Victoria, I think Lies and Seduction was my first e-book experience. I love it. Nice to learn more about you.

  2. Thank you Jenn! Lies and Seduction was only a couple of years ago, but I think the epub industry has grown thousands of times bigger since then.

  3. Hi Victoria,
    love your honest answer to ‘why write’! Truly, that myth about romance writers or writers in general making buckets of money is SO pervasive. How do people react when you tell them you write erotic romance? I’m curious, coz I may be stepping out of that particular closet soon.

    • It’s fun telling them. I belong to a bridge club, which you’d think would be incredibly conservative. You’d be surprised! Mostly people smile and giggle. I’ve found Fifty Shades of Grey to be a good comparison, as so many people have read it.

  4. Victoria, your book covers are wonderful. Will look out for your new book, Blue Sea as I’m interested in reading from a bloke’s POV. Lovely to learn more about you.
