First up: Pumping Up The Sexual Volume
Have you ever read your sex scenes and thought, eh? Do you pick up other author’s books and wish you could write those scorching hot love scenes? Maybe you just want to turn up the sexual heat a notch or two in your own writing? Then this is the class for you.
In Pumping Up The Sexual Volume we are going to talk about how to develop a sex scene step by step, give you some tools to accomplish just that, and then give you a chance to try it all out in a safe place where feedback will be provided.
Once this class is done you should be able to write sizzling hot love scenes that include:
• Simmering sexy kisses
• Ovation worthy oral sex
• Mind boggling intercourse
And it will all be done with purpose. This class is intended to be writing intensive, so get your fingers warmed up and your muses ready and raring to go!
CAUTION: This course is about sex. I will use graphic language and we may discuss sexual acts that you personally are uncomfortable with. Everyone has their comfort zone. I will do my best to keep the discussion on topic and pertinent to the class, but if you write inspirational or sweet romances—this is probably not the class for you. Consider yourself warned.
About the Instructor
Sorcha Mowbray is a mild mannered office worker by day…okay, so she is actually a mouthy, opinionated, take charge kind of gal who bosses everyone around; but she definitely works in an office. At night she writes romance so hot she sets the sheets on fire! Just ask her slightly singed husband.
She is a longtime lover of historical romance, having grown up reading Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught. Then she discovered Thea Devine and Susan Johnson. Holy cow! Heroes and heroines could do THAT? From there, things devolved into trying her hand at writing a little smexy. Needless to say, she liked it and she hopes you do too!
