  • Journey from Erotica to Sweet -- Write Stuff -- 8/25/2015

    in Entertainment

    This show is my opportunity to give someone I care about the chance to let her know how much I appreciate everything she has done for me. We met two years ago now via a Facebook group and my writing career has not been the same since I met her. If you've read the Sins of the Flesh series, you'll see that each book has a dedication to her because she was influential to me in my writing.


    Not only that, she made a change from writing in a very popular genre -- erotica -- to writing sweet and inspirational romances with some hints of spice. It's hard to change. Most of us know and accept that change can be one of the most difficult things to do. For Allyson Carter, changing over from erotica to sweet was one of the toughest decisions she's made in her career. The release of her new book, Hearts Undone, is a book born out of that decision and is available now.
