Author Jill Sorenson on Getting Dirty in the Great Outdoors

Freefall by Jill SorensonToday we're pleased to welcome author Jill Sorenson here to talk about the Great Outdoors, especially great when you're out there getting dirty. Jill's upcoming release, Freefall, has a park ranger heroine who goes on a search and rescue mission with a man she's got a past with—so you know there's some outdoors action going on. Thanks for being here, Jill!

Get out!

Outdoors, that is! Summer is almost here. That means fresh air and sunshine, earthy gardening and sweaty exercise. Warm weather is a perfect excuse to take off some clothes. It’s time to swim in a lake and hike up a mountain. I’m ready for campfires, cookouts and hot men running shirtless! God bless America.

The only thing better than the great outdoors is sex in the great outdoors. Am I right or am I right? Throw me a romance novel to read while I lounge in the backyard, topless. I’m a sucker for skinny-dipping, swashbuckling and extreme sports. I’ll read any story about being stranded on an island or lost in the wilderness. Caves, waterfalls, remote getaways. Rock climbers, surfers, intrepid explorers. Forget the billionaires—give me a rugged outdoorsman.

[Outdoorsmen ftw!...]

Author Jill Sorenson on Vagina Envy

Aftershock by Jill SorensonToday we're happy to welcome author Jill Sorenson to Heroes and Heartbreakers. She's been a frequent visitor here, and she has a new release—Aftershock—out now. Aftershock is about the events following a real earthquake (not the earth-shattering quakes heroines often have!) and how two people can find each other in a crisis. Jill is here to talk about a much more serious topic than natural disasters: The vagina. Thanks, Jill!

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen my vagina tweets. I’ve been known to drop the v-bomb. I can’t remember why I started doing this, but it probably stemmed from my frustration over anti-vagina sentiments.

While the magic penis is loved by men and women alike, vaginas aren’t as celebrated. There are products designed to transform our lady parts into something smoother, prettier and more palatable. Most romance readers aren’t interested in f/f (two vaginas, eek!) and some are so turned off by descriptions of female genitalia that they prefer to read m/m.

Here are a couple of things readers seem to find distasteful:

1. Female body fluids, especially in generous amounts and when described as milky or creamy (two normal qualities). Male body fluids tend to be much more copious and acidic but are rarely grimaced at in romance.
