Isn't that a sexy little question? It's Cassandre Dayne and I've been having some frank conversations with other writers about all the sexy and rather sensuous posts we do on blogs - our own, our fan pages, other guest blogging etc. We try as erotic romance writers to bring attention to ourselves and one way is to be a little sexy, perhaps stretch the boundaries. But how much is too much? I know the term braZen means to some maybe REALLY out there but can we push too hard and turn people off? Hmm... I think we can. How do I know that?
Well, we all know the Facebook police exist but not just with the sometimes worthless ways the "staff" handle complaints who do work for Facebook. Let's face it -- they can't check everything out. They react. So I can only get but so angry with them. However there are groups of people on FB that actually target artists and writers with pictures - even ones they simply have buried in a group of photos. Yes, you've heard me say before how much that pisses me off, but you honestly have to think... Being a published author is indeed about reputation. For those who know me really get that I push hard back against the backlash of what I call STUPID.
But there again - I have to be careful. I call myself the wicked girl and a couple of dear friends of mine finally said - STOP. You play at that but the girl inside is different. True. I post pictures and HOT HOT HOT flashes and continue to have folks as (especially men) do I do all the wild and wooly things I write about? Ummm.... NO. Do I do some? Only people REALLY close to me will ever hear the fine details. LOL But this is about posting pictures and writing. I'm learning that what offends me isn't what offends others - to each their own. Granted - sick to DEATH of the lack of tolerance but we as authors do have to be careful. I'll post a few pics and you tell me if they are too much.
I love writing sexy and I love posting sexy pictures and that's not going to stop. I do think tempering what we post to encourage more readers is the way to go. I'll be the very first person to stand up and say - patience and tolerance or you're out of my life but... To each their own. Tell me your thoughts...
