Q&A Thursday with D.X. Luc

What is the worst thing you’ve written, how did you learn or know it was bad, and what did you learn from it? My first short story I wrote in my college creative writing course. I didn't know about “show don't tell” then.

Why did you start writing and when did you decide to go professional? I always have stories roaming in my mind. Some stronger than others and I just have to get them down on paper. It was a great friend of mine, also an author, who told me that I should try to get one of my works published. I made the leap of faith and well, now I'm a professional author! It's a total dream come true.

Do you write in more than one genre? Which ones and which do you like the best? I try to. My first book is an erotic fantasy, I have a futuristic WIP and my upcoming book is a humor/horror erotic romance. Honestly, I love them all.

Do you read other author’s books when you’re writing? If so, do you read the same genre or something different? I read a lot when I'm writing just to let my brain breathe. I love all types of genres.

What is the most difficult part of the entire writing process for you? Queries, pitches, editing..etc.
The most difficult is coming up with names. I don't want them to be too odd where a reader is having trouble figuring out the pronunciation. And ending a story is hard because I really never want my stories to end!

If you could have the same type of career as any author currently publishing who would it be and why? I do love Sherrilyn Kenyon, but I wish I could be like my favorite classic authors. I feel the beauty of their writing and how even to this day, they have such great value, is something I want for my own writing.

Author Bio: I was introduced into the world of romance at age 14 thanks to my older sister. It was as though a spark was ignited and soon, need for romance became a craving for the erotic. Even in school, the idea of human sexuality was always at the forefront of my mind, to the point I majored in it! 

Sex, love, and face it, more sex is what I know and my husband can attest to it! Unique in every way, I'll tell anyone that asks, if it isn't hot, maybe it needs a touch of vitamin D!

Imagine having someone so devoted to you and you don't even know it. What if that person, that perfect one was right under your nose? What if that person was not only the hero of your heart, but a savior to many?

Dorothy Gale found herself growing older and was stuck in neutral. She wanted adventure and love. Yet her love life was non-existent, with only fantasies of hot sex and being dominated keeping her company. Lacking in human companionship, she felt blessed to have her devoted dog, Toto. He was her solace. Little did she know, her dog had a big secret and an even greater destiny.

I still believe SOME telling is needed and warranted, but I was the same way, I understand it more now!
