Saturday Sexcerpt – Love in the Boondocks by Adam Mann

love-in-the-boondocksWe said goodnight, but about half an hour later I felt Mary climbing into the other side of the larger bed with me in it!

She had to touch me as the bed was too small not to, and I noticed the soft fabric of her nightgown as she snuggled up to me, and put her arms around me.

I turned to face her, and she kissed my chin.  She smelt very feminine, without using any discernible perfume.

I put my arm on her waist, and then up to her back.

I was a bit startled as the back of her bra felt like canvas webbing through the soft nightie, but she snuggled up to me again without saying a word.

I moved my hand down her back to her bottom and found another canvas garment there, which was like a pair of knickers made from thick denim material.

“That’s my chastity belt,” she whispered, “Go to sleep,” she commanded.

“The trouble is that you’ve woken up Percy,” I complained.

“Percy?” she was startled, and I could sense her looking at me in the darkness.

I laughed.

“The one-eyed monster,” and now she laughed, and reached down between us to feel Percy.

AuThursday – Adam Mann

Adam 200Please welcome Adam Mann back to the Clog Blog. Welcome Adam,  Thank you, I’m delighted to be here. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your background? 

I’ve worked in what is called developing economies most of my working life, and usually in remote areas with limited facilities.  I’ve now retired and find myself working even harder – no days off – as a writer.

What are you working on at the minute? 

I’m just completing my first Box Set – 4 or 5 short stories.  I pitch most of my stories in places where I’ve worked, but that can be a problem for a lot of readers.

What draws you to write in the romance genre?

Quite frankly from my own personal experience.  I have been married four times – widowed, divorced, marriage annulled as she had forgotten to get divorced, and finally happily married to a widow for the last nineteen years

How much research do you do? 

Quite a lot; a recent story took me to an area of Pakistan where the landowners are largely Parsee, and I managed to collect a lot of data about the origin of the Zoroastrians.

Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just to see where an idea takes you? 

I usually start with a specific plot, but often the story ‘wanders’ off-line and I have to review the MS.  Most of the time I get ideas for plots very early in the morning, and if I wait I’ll have forgotten the plot when I get up in the morning!  So I write myself a note, even if it’s midnight.

How long on average does it take you to write a book? 

Usually a week or ten days after I’ve thought about the plot, but then I spend the next three weeks editing and reviewing the MS, and it may be some time before in publish it.

Do you ever get writer’s Block? 

No, not really, I’ve a lot of stories to tell.  I find that I can always write about something.

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Put your head down and write, and worry about grammar, editing, and proofreading later.  Book promotion is a much greater problem!

Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web? 

Mainly through Twitter.  I’ve considered buying in readers, but it’s expensive and I haven’t done that yet.

Saturday Sexcerpt – West African Heat by Adam Mann

West African Heat 500x755


“The day of the party duly arrived.  We planned to get there about ten o’clock when the party was in full swing, and ride straight into the party on our ponies.  We decided to have a light dinner, and then get ready.

Now came a problem.  I had to use a piece of cotton wool and anoint Anna’s skin all over with the dye she had made.  It was alright until I came to her breasts, when Anna told me the cotton wool tickled, and then put her hands round my neck – that type of tickle!  She stood in front of me naked, and I realized I had to ‘paint’ the tops of her legs, right up to the edge of her knickers’ line, and then she in turn had to gently anoint my skin up to scrotum height.  We were both breathing hard by the time we stood and examined one another.  To make matters worse I had added some perfume to Anna’s dye as the oil smelt a bit, and some aftershave to mine.

We very nearly didn’t get to the party!”

AuThursday – Adam Mann

Adam 200Please welcome Romance writer Adam Mann.  Adam, how long have you been writing?

I started writing historical novels in 1996 when I was working in Sri Lanka, but did not get my first one published as work got in the way, and I almost got entangled with a vanity publisher.  Fortunately I got my MS back, and didn’t pay the publisher anything before they went bang.

Q:  What inspired you to write your first romance novel?

I was always sad that history never mentions romance, which must have been there or they wouldn’t have produced heirs, so I started writing romance novellas four years ago, after I retired.   I call them novellas, as I get bored if they’re too long, and I don’t like padding my MS just to reach a word count.

Q:  What do you think is the biggest misconception about a man writing romance?

I don’t really know.  I have read a lot of romance books, and find that many women authors find great delight in things like fabric of a dress, which frankly I would find difficult to do – the softness of a lady’s skin is for me…  But I do like exploring the feelings and emotions of my characters in great depth.

Q:  Do you have a specific writing style?

The first novella I wrote was in the first person, but I’ve given that up unless I’m writing in the first person female.  I usually keep an Excel record of characters, places and chapters, which I find very help full.  In one book I started writing about a Clemence, but by the last chapter I wrote Clarence.  Thank you that editor.

I should also note that sometimes my characters change the plot as I write.

Q: To date which of your books was the hardest to write and why?

One book I had to wrestle with involved a man and his attractive step-daughter after his wife died. It was not so difficult to write but to adapt to the editor’s likes and dislikes, and I had to compromise with my hero seducing a college friend of his step-daughter.

Q:  What books have most influenced your life most?

My first romance novella has a lot of my own life experience written into the plot.  I’ve left it in for that MS, but have avoided getting too close to home ever since.

Q:  What do you feel is the most important aspect for all new authors to remember when writing or creating their own stories?

One of my concerns is authors who write about things they don’t really know about, and make it up as they go, whilst a little web search would have guided them correctly.  So my advice is don’t write about things you don’t know about.

Q:  What is on tap for the rest of 2016?

I’ve just published a new murder and mayhem novel – Chocolates and Cyanide – and I’ve got two romance novels in the draft MS format.  Two because one was delayed by a publisher, and then they turned it down, so I’m revising it.  The other I just completed a few days ago.

Q:  Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web?

I have two websites: for historical novels, and for romance novellas.

And on Twitter @Lordmaity and @adammannauthor and @Butterflybooks9

I think that offer nearly all my books and novellas, but maybe under different publishers, and some of them are more popular with
