Interview with Jenevieve De Beers
1. Tell us about yourself in fifteen words or less.
15? Holy moly! I’m from Texas, and I have a dirty mind.
2. How do you define “erotic”?
Good question. To me, erotic means showing that sexual connection between two (or more) people. They might not consummate (but in my stories they always do), but there’s definitely a powerful connection that translate well to the reader.
3. What makes erotica different than other genres (besides the knockage of boots)?
It’s more of a fun genre, especially if you have a nice pair of Christian Louboutin boots a-knocking. I don’t think most erotica takes itself too seriously. I know I’m incapable of taking myself serious. For me, erotic literature is “we all just wanna have fun” literature.
4. Where do you find inspiration for your work?
Fortunately, or maybe unfortunately, I have an odd outlook on life. Almost everything can easily take on an erotic or sexual slant. I initially see everything as funny, and then my naughty mind goes to work and twists it around to make it sexual. Really, I may need help.
5. What sets you apart from other erotic work out there?
My characters are wet, wild, and wicked, and they see no reason to apologize for it. I kind of like to push the envelope.
6. Pick one of your erotic works–if it were made into a movie, who’d play the various characters and why?
Oh, this is fun. Let’s go with “Hollywood Starlets Compete for a Part” since it’s already about actors. Starlet Megan Scott would be Megan Fox. Starlet Whitney Winns would be Lindsey Lohan. Producer Abner Able would be Kevin Spacey. Action star Jake Jones would be Hugh Jackman. Director Billy Barker would be Jason Alexander. Producer Nathan Morris would be Tony Danza. That was fun, and harder than I thought it would be, since I don’t use actors as templates for my characters.

7. Where can readers connect with you and find your work online?
I have a woefully neglected WordPress site (http://smokinhotpress.wordpress.com/) that that I share with John Waylon (together we are Smokin’ Hot Press). One of us has to start blogging, or at least updating the site with releases or something. Anyone can also e-mail me directly at JenevieveDeBeers at hotmail dot com.
**Wild! Question: What is the most challenging part of being an indie erotica creative?**
The most challenging aspect is being responsible for everything. Writing. Cover. Editing. Formatting. There’s a lot more to his business than I initially understood when I first started.
