Plantsing with Anne Kemp
Anne Kemp writes sweet romance but in her next book, her characters will be ripping off their clothes. There’s just one problem. Writing the naughty bits make her laugh. We try to figure out what blocks us when we write our intimate scenes, talk about breaking all the romance rules in her Abby George series, and discuss the merits of writing sex scenes in emoji (eggplants and peaches FTW!). Plus, we talk breaking all the romance rules. Bottom line: sex scenes are (ehem) hard. Hang with Anne online:www.annekemp.comIG, FB, Twitter and Pinterest: @missannekempCheck out her Abby George series on Amazon

Finding hope in flawed protagonists with Patricia D. Eddy
To call Patricia D. Eddy productive is an understatement. With 30 books published, this former computer programmer writes super steamy sci-fi, military stories, paranormal romance with a twist: she writes strong characters with physical and mental scars. We dish on writing sex scenes with purpose; how she prefers the discovery process of the characters on the way to their HEA rather than the HEA itself; and we bond over a love for Erma Bombeck.Connect with Patricia via:Website: https://patriciadeddy.com Facebook: https://facebook.com/patriciadeddyauthor Instagram: https://instagram.com/patriciadeddy Twitter: https://twitter.com/patriciadeddy BookBub: https://www.bookbub.com/profile/patricia-d-eddy Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Patricia-D.-Eddy/e/B00ERC6DRQ Book + Main: https://bookandmainbites.com/patriciadeddy/bites

Seriously funny sex with Nikky Kaye
Nikky Kaye began writing romance in college — she had an agent and several manuscripts out for submission. But her voice was too “quirky” for the market. Grad school, then life, took her focus. But it was working on a niche non-fiction book that inspired her to write romance again. We cover a lot of ground: from parading her Barbie’s around in regency outfits to discovering Harlequin during a high school job at her local library. And we get super personal about our funny first times. Plus we answer the question: is it okay to laugh out loud during the sex scenes? Connect with Nikky on Facebook: facebook.com/officialnikkykayeauthorInstagram: instagram.com/nikkykayebooksWeb: http://www.nikkykaye.com/ Her most recent book, A Lucky Shot, a so-steamy-it melts-ice stand-alone hockey novella, is available on Kindle Unlimited.
