Hello, my name is Alice Gaines, and I write smut. Moreover, I’m a white-haired old lady who writes smut. Not what people normally expect. I started writing smut in 1990 and was published In the first volume of Secrets from Red Sage in 1995. That was the first volume of erotic romance ever published.
A pretty far cry from Secrets volume 31.
I’m not only a white-haired old lady, I’m a church-going old lady. Definitely not what people expect. I never tell people what to believe, but I do talk about my church all the time because I love it. Everyone in my church knows what I write. They even know about The Adventures of Wonderslut (more on that later). In fact, here I am with my friend, Amber Belldene, giving a talk at my church called “God and Sex.” It was very well received.
I’ve written just about everything–historical, contemporary, fantasy, paranormal, shapeshifters, humor, short stories, novellas, full-length books. I write whatever strikes my fancy. One day, I decided men who could shift into motorcycles would be neat, so I wrote some of those.
Next year, I plan to move more into self-publishing. I have a series of books set In a lovely Eastern European country I made up. Each hero is a Prince of Danislova, and each becomes Prince Charming for an American woman. They’ll be out in January, February, and March.
I look forward to discussing books and writing with you in the coming months. I have my own blog where I post announcements at http://www.alicegaines.blogspot.com. Every Friday, I post an erotic excerpt at http://www.alicesexcerpts.blogspot.com. On the fourth Friday of the month, I post a new installment of The Adventures of Wonderslut, Avenger of the Non-Orgasmic. I’m on Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter as AliceGaines. Say hi the next time you see me.
