Of course, some of my favorite UF series do include these scenes and they do not detract from the story. In fact, in many cases I feel that these intimate moments enhance my connection with the characters and their relationship. It's not required, but none of us would be here without sex. It's been going on for millions of years and I'm not sure why books that include it get stereotyped.
I hope that my readers, regardless, are captivated enough by the story itself that it doesn't matter either way. Keep in mind it's an Urban Fantasy series and I'm not writing it in a way where it becomes a distraction, nor it being the sole reason someone picks up the series to read. If it happens, then it's a pivotal scene for my characters.
The reason I brought this up is I have been going through the editing process of my books and I have been reviewing a scene. Stay, or go? Need it, or don't need it? Perhaps moments like these are what beta readers are for. In the meantime, I'll be mulling it over, but as it stands, it's staying.
SOMETHING NEW!I included on my blog a Pictures page. Some of you know (and most of you don't) that I love creating digital art. I haven't put everything up there yet but I've already been working on a few things for Book 2 but I can't release them because they are spoilers. So, keep an eye out and I'll be posting a new one every so often with a little caption. It may be a quote, my thoughts or just a description.
I absolutely LOVE fanart. I create it myself and I suppose that I will have to be put to charge of creating my own, so I will be sharing those with you.
