Halloween Blogfest: Anna Bayes

Hello, I’m Anna Bayes, a writer of erotic short stories with heroines who still believe in the power of true love.

I used to love autumns. The crisp air, reddish golden leaves dancing at my feet and the perfect weather to be innocently wearing cardigans to hide those extra 5 pounds I could never seem to eliminate — until my father passed away four years ago.

October. That was when he left.

It had been especially difficult for me losing my Dad. For a short time, I plunged into the mindless stupor of having a succession of quick, casual sex with relative strangers. It was simply physical. I still have a mental picture of the condoms they used, but not the color of their eyes or hair; and I most certainly do not remember their names.

That dulled the pain for a while, but did nothing to help me face the source of my depression.

It took me a year to eventually accept the irrevocable reality of not having my father around anymore. Another six months passed before I finally came to terms with having my Dad only in my memory and heart.

He gave me my fundamental values, and the skeleton of my personality. I have always been different from girls of my age, and I scoffed at the notion of trying to blend in. I refused to be anything else but the freakish and defiant over-achiever that I was.

Writing was part of what made it bearable to journey through days when I missed my father. He used to have an old typewriter that I’d punch out imaginary conversations on. I loved the extra strength you needed to exert to type out each letter: made you really think before you branded those words on paper.

Hurtful and incoherent thoughts dominated my first writing attempts, but they were a release. With time, an intuitive voice found its way out of the gibberish I typed onto my modern laptop screen. Ideas and scenes made their way onto the word document. One word after another, stories came to life.

Sex helped me heal. I have always been in awe of the powers of sex: it became the topic of choice that crept onto my pages. That was how I became Anna Bayes, an erotica writer.

Autumn: I do not fear the season anymore.

Let earth-shattering good sex and fascinating stories dominate the world!

For a teaser, here’s my first self-published ebook, Snug Fit: a sweet, contemporary M/F erotic romance. Hope you enjoy reading the excerpt!

I’m always on the lookout for new female names for the leading lady in my next stories. If you’ll comment below with a name suggestion (perhaps with a description of what she is like in your imagination), I’ll pick a random winner on Saturday (November 2) to receive an ecopy of Snug Fit — I can email either a .pdf or .mobi file to the lucky winner.
