Fiction vs. Reality – An Author’s Life

Crash Landing available HERE
By Jessica E. Subject
It comes as a shock to most people—meaning those outside of the publishing industry—when I tell them that I write erotic science fiction romance. I’m not sure if it’s the erotic romance combined with science fiction that they’re surprised about, or the fact that I am an author. Maybe both. I don’t know. But after they go home and check out my books in the privacy of their own home, they come back with questions. And most of the time they ask me things like how did I get started, and why did I choose to write about aliens.

Yet, there are those who ask questions about the sex in the stories, and my sex life. They ask my husband, too. Let me start by saying that I am VERY satisfied, but remember, I write fiction. Take Crash Landing for example. I have never crash landed on Earth (though Liza O’Connor will tell you differently). I have never been involved in a ménage, and I have never had sex with a blue alien with webbed hands and feet. Fiction, people!

Though, when I’m writing these stories and scenes, I can picture them perfectly in my mind. And I try to portray what I see and feel to my reader, with the same intensity.

Here’s an excerpt from Crash Landing:
Cael rushed to the right, his rod too hard to wait. The slurping, sucking, and cries of pleasure continued as he reached the entrance behind which the action took place. The door ajar, he dared a quick glimpse into the room. With a gasp, he stepped back into the hall, but could not take his eyes off the sight in front of him.
With her rounded pink ass and swollen sex folds in full view, a woman went to work sucking off a man. The musky scent of her desire wound through his nasal passages and drew him closer. She rested on her hands and knees on a platform, while the guy kneeled in front of her. But unlike any beings he had ever seen on the vids of Earth, the guy had blue skin. Not his deep, almost indigo shade, but lighter, closer to the color of the water he’d landed in. Long blond hair flowed over his shoulders, onto his muscular chest.

The man held the woman’s shoulders with his webbed hands—yes, webbed hands—drawing her on and off his dick. “You have the mouth of an angel.” He threw his head back and thrust faster and faster between her lips.
The sight stimulated Cael. They weren’t trying to make babies; it seemed they were having sexual relations for pleasure. He yearned not only to bury his face in the wet pussy in front of him, but to taste the man’s blue dick, feel it inside of him. Back on Narien, he’d crafted his own devices made from the soft, flimsy bark of the totmos plant, to experience the pleasure both men and women felt in the stadium, why they cried out during mating, but never seemed injured. And learn he had, anxious to be ready when he reached his thirtieth year and was allowed to mate. He’d turned that age a half year ago, with no one on his ship to be his partner. Would he finally have an opportunity?

When the man lowered his head again, his brilliant blue eyes flashed open, fixing on Cael.

Oh shit. But he couldn’t move. He couldn’t stop watching.
The man slowed his movements to long drawn out strokes, but didn’t stop. “It seems our guest has finally woken up.”

  1. lol The only alien I think I'd have sex with is the Doctor. No blue webbed hands. I love your stuff, Jess! Happy Sales :)

    1. Thank you so much, Olivia! Blue IS my favorite color. ;)

  2. I don't really know what you're talking about, Jess. My life is EXACTLY like the lives of my characters! LOL!

    Crash Landing was totally sexy! It was The Edge story I read when I thought about writing my own!

    1. Wow! Thanks, Taryn! :)

      Must be nice. LOL Though some of my characters share some of my experiences. See Jared with his niece and nephew in Sudden Breakaway. LOL

  3. I hear you, Jessica. I don't think I'll ever get over relatives asking me if I write from experience. Lol.

    1. LOL My relatives don't want to know. It's friends of my hubby and I that are brave enough to ask.

  4. Hi Jessica...I'm stalking today;) I've had similar questions, only about paranormal...the same questions and raised eye brows at my husband and me...and even things like, WOW, I can't look at you two and not think of you doing the dirty that's in your book. Honestly...it is fiction and one wild imagination (LOL). That's part of the reason I really don't want my family reading my books *grins*

    Congrats on your book releases, Jessica...I have a couple of your books on my kindle and if I ever get a chance to read for enjoyment, they will be top on the list:)

  5. Hi Kay Dee! Thanks for visiting me! :) I know. I bet they don't ask horror authors if they go around killing people. But when it comes to sex, there's always people who ask.

    I don't care if my family reads them. That's their decision. But my daughter is not allowed to read my stuff until she's 18. That's my only rule.

    And I totally get trying to find the time to read for enjoyment. I try to find time every day, but sometimes it's only 10 minutes. I'm way behind this year. But the writing is going well. :) All the best!
