There’s a difference between Romance and Sexcascade.

I have been reading a lot of books lately since I’m not able to do much else. I’ve noticed so many modern authors do not know what romance is. Sexcascade and romance aren’t the same thing. There’s a very big difference between Romance and Sexcascade. Romance is when one character takes the time to actually get to know the other character, woo them, court them and confess their love for them. Yes, sex will be a part of their relationship but not the sum of it.

Well, sexcascade is exactly what it sounds like. Two people meet and within minutes or hours they’re engaged in buck wild sex. It’s a form of porn and rarely, if ever romance grows out of it.

No, I’m not a prune nor Puritanical, but if a book is labeled romantic. I want it to be romantic. I don’t want to find myself engulfed in a book and found out I’m reading Playboy or Playgirl After Dark. If I wanted that I would read the Kama Sutra or other such books if I wanted to read about fifty different sexual positions and all of them look painful as hell.

Sure, I know that sex within minutes of meeting is a fact of modern life that’s why it’s incorporated into modern literature but don’t call it romance because isn’t. It’s simply satisfying a primitive urge like eating and sleeping. It’s an instant gratification. Romance takes time, effort and energy.

Some may argue with many people its all has the same end result. That’s true, but with romance, at least you get the wonderful dates, wining, flowers, gifts, love letters, learning what the person’s name is, where they live, who are their friends and family, their likes and dislikes, and dining before the sexcascade. By the time a partner finish all these things they’re more than ready to marry you and take you home.  ; )

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    That’s true. But I guess people don’t want to read long enough to get to the sex in a novel.
