I recent kerfuffle via FB got me to thinking when a few authors who insisted they were not “elitists” because they took offense to some authors referring to some romance books as nothing more than word porn with little to no plot and shirtless abs on their covers. First, I’ve written both romance that had plenty of action (no, not that kind) and a hearty plot line, as well as the aforementioned “word porn”, complete with hot abs on the cover. And I’m here to tell you – I do not take offense to it. What I do take offense to are the authors who want to be offended. Like, who cares? Yeah, I write it, and my readers love it. Win-win as far as I’m concerned.
This is the very reason why I started the #BitchPleaseIWritePorn hashtag. I write it. I call it for what it is. I’m not ashamed. I own it like a boss.
Let’s face it. The simple truth of the matter is, “porn” is not a valid genre on Amazon. Trust me, it should be, but it’s not. For this reason, those of us who write such literary masterpieces as The Taming of Andy Savage have no choice but to improperly label our creations as “romance.” If “porn” was a valid genre option on Amazon as an actual book category, I’d slap up some of my stuff into it faster than you can say “holy abs, Batman!”
As I said, I do write the occasional piece of porn that has zero plot line. They’re fun, they are entertaining, and honestly, when you get down to the nut-cutting, people read “word porn” for the same reason they watch porn, and it’s not for the great acting and riveting plot lines. There’s nothing wrong with it. I write it, I read it, and yes, I watch it (hey, a girl’s gotta do research, right?).
To be honest, if I had to cut out all the action (yes, I do mean that kind) going on in the Sweet Seductions books, I’d have to rewrite so much of them they wouldn’t even remotely resemble the same book. They’re fun. They are written that way on purpose. And no, I don’t think they are some earth-shattering literary masterpiece that will change lives. They may make you laugh, they may get you a little hot under the collar. But earth-shattering they ain’t. As I like to say, you can dress a goat in a tuxedo, but at the end of the day, it’s still just a goat.
Bottom line, if your “romance” book had all the hot scenes removed and you would have to do some major rewrites, overhauls, and serious character development, then #BitchPlease, you write word porn, too. Don’t go getting all offended, girl. Own that shit. You know I do.

THE TAMING OF ANDY SAVAGE is now perafree through Smashwords!
For Nicolette Vampskin, it had always been about the sex. At least it was, until a chance one-night stand with the tall frontman of White Coffin turned her entire world upside-down. Now she’s in love with a vampire half her age, blackmailed by her boss, and her music journalism career was spiraling out of control. What happened to the once proud fang-whore who was content to bang half the vampire bands in the country? Yeah, it’s all pervy fun until someone ends up dead.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of sitting down with writer, co-author, and friend, author Angel H. Scott for our first ever podcast of Full On Insanity with Nicola Matt. We had a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to doing more podcasts and interviews with fellow authors and other artists.

I will be back with you as soon as possible to schedule a date and time.
In the meantime, if you would like to listen to me and Angel shooting the shit for an hour (we did do a lot of giggling), watch the podcast below – and excuse my really bad southern drawl 😀

Alicia’s career was going nowhere. In a world where younger was always better, a woman nearing thirty was practically useless in the entertainment industry. She had long since given up her dreams of becoming a model, having spent the best years of her life as the assistant to The Great Georgio, a magical act which relied more on the comic relief of her ability to always manage to sabotage a show rather than based on Georgio’s actual magical talents. When she accidentally cracks open the skull of Jeremy Fergers, the guitarist for the world-renowned vampire metal band White Coffin, Georgio sees a unique opportunity to resurrect their doomed careers.
Georgio is convinced their only hope of making a name for themselves relies on her becoming a member of the undead. He plans to have Alice seduce Jeremy, hoping he will embrace her, but when Alicia begins to fall in love with their mark, she refuses to go through with their original plan, forcing Georgio to improvise as he continues his quest for ultimate fame as the world’s greatest magician.
Finding himself in a dangerous situation, Jeremy must make a painful decision – can he live with himself if he embraces Alicia, or can he learn to live without the woman whose impossible klutziness has somehow managed to steal his heart?
I am happy to announce that book 3 in the Sweet Seductions Series, Jinx’d!, will be released late next month. Stay tuned for cover reveal party, release party, and release date!

The official release date for Collaring Ash, Book 2 in the Sweet Seductions Series, has been set for 2/14/16. Are you ready to meet White Coffin’s bad-ass bassist Ash Pardue?
Ash Pardue is young, immortal, and the bassist for the hottest vampire metal band on the planet. He has his pick of the ladies, and his tastes run wild and deep. When a chance encounter turns his entire world upside down, he soon finds himself in the midst of the strangest, freakiest love triangle of his undead life. Brandi and Angela are everything he has never been attracted to, yet he can’t seem to stay away from them no matter how hard he tries. How is he supposed to choose between love and lust when they are both so very bad for him? Will his hunger for these two lead to ever-lasting love, or to a freaky obsession too wild to be tamed?
“I don’t care if she can deep throat a cactus, bro. You really need to stay away from that crazy bitch. She’s a freak, Ash, pure and simple,” Andy said as he tossed his cigarette to the ground.
“Hey, we’re all freaks in way or another,” Ash replied.
