Horny Hump Day—Fedya and Novomira

My What’s Up Wednesday post is here.

Warning:  Not safe for work or appropriate for those under 18!

Welcome back to Horny Hump Day, a weekly hop where writers share three erotic sentences of a book or WIP. This week’s scene picks up where last week’s left off. Nineteen-year-old Fyodor (Fedya) Konev, the child of Lyuba and Ivan, has just married his 20-year-old sweetheart Novomira. They married a bit before they expected, so Fedya can enlist in the Army as soon as possible and make sure Novomira is taken care of in case the worst happens.

Their old family friend Katrin surprised them with a honeymoon at her five-story summer house in Long Island, where they’ll have lots of privacy. Though they’ve had makeout sessions many times, they didn’t have the luxury of going too far or even having guaranteed alone time. Now, the morning after their wedding, they finally have all the time and privacy in the world.

She rewards him by slipping one hand under his shirt and the other down his pants.  Her lack of experience is less important than the fact that she’s fondling the most sensitive parts of his body.  She doesn’t protest when he pulls off her top, and responds by pulling off his own top.

Courtesy heads-up to my regular readers:  Since I’m going to start publishing soon, I’m seriously thinking of changing my longtime pen name, and my url would thus change too. I’d probably go with my middle name, Ursula, plus one of my old family names. Hartlein is my top choice, though some of my Sunday readers liked Wellek more. I’m just worried that Carrie-Anne doesn’t seem enough like a historical writer’s name.

  3. The problem with creating a new pen name is that it can’t sound too “invented” or it becomes precious and less attractive. I think you’ve got the right of it where it comes to picking one. I like Hartlein better, because even though it’s a “hart” (deer) rather than a “heart”, it has the romance connotation you are probably looking for. Ursula, however, might be a little too old-fashioned. Just my opinion. Good luck with it!

  4. I agree with what Trish says. I would choose Hartlein, for the reason she chose and also because it’s earlier in the alphabet, and if books are stored alphabetically your name will come up earlier with Hartlein than it would with Wellek, which is important when readers are browsing for new material.

    As a first name, Carrie-Anne is fine, and you have readers familiar with it already. Ursula sounds foreign, and unless you are in love with the name, it will feel foreign to you as well. The name you choose is going to follow you for the rest of your life, so make sure you’re happy with it.

    Also, you might want to consider a tagline for your brand. You want something that will grow with you as your writing changes. Then consider how your pseudonym fits it. As for your snippet, I love scenes that show young, innocent love and you do it very well. Doesn’t matter if the character has had years of experience, all of your characters have the innocent outlook of a new discovery. First love, etc. Good luck with your new life. We’ll be watching.

    There’s nothing wrong with ‘Carrie-Anne’; it sounds perfect for the genre you write in and the only issue writers have with names seems to be about hiding their gender (J K Rowling, for instance). But Hartlein is unusual and memorable. If you’re comfortable using it, I would consider changing. Wellek? Not so sure.

  6. I like Hartlein. I also like your middle name, but Carrie-Anne is wonderful too.
