As in oh my god this book is so horrible. The dirty talk was so ridiculous, so purple prosey I almost gagged.
So as old Inigo said, "I don't think that word means what you think it means." Or that phrase.
So what exactly is purple prose?
Well, a great many people seem to think it's more towards the pornographic way of describing sex. That's uh, porn.
Purple prose is the overly flowery over the top way of describing sex without actually describing sex.
His raging rod of steel was eagerly absorbed by her maiden pearl dripping with eager dew. You know 80's romance novel talk is pretty much the great and terrible owner of purple prose. Where it started. And I uh, shamefully have some of those books and love the hell out of them.
When a person says he or she wants to suck someone's dick and maybe it get's a little overly beggy, that's not purple prose. That's just plain old all-American dirty talk. That's seduction.
To the haters who don't like it when I write like that I have one question. Hasn't anyone ever talked to you like that? No? Well, that's a shame. Because, damn you gotta love those guys who can charm your socks off. And secondly, what do you want me to say? Grunt. Fuck me. Grunt. shit fuck damn oh shit oh shit suck my dick. grunt grunt.....oh yeah sexy.
I write dirty talk. This is romance not porn. This is written word not film. So the next time I write a book I'm going to write: He shoved it in and pulled it out and in and out again and again until he came spewing like Mount Vesuvius all over the unsuspecting villagers below. Hell yeah, I want some of that!!!!!! Come on baby bend me over now.
It's Wednesday, Behind Iron Lace with it's over abundance of Cajun Purple Prose is now available in paperback through Silver and Amazon.
And Need You Now is now three days away. And there isn't anything in this one to keep it from Amazon.
Oh and don't forget Beyond Complicated is still for sale. I think it's my best book. But that's just my opinion.
