THE SEX FILES: We talk with Inca Loreen Minden, author of Caprice: A Glamorous Erotic Series

Inka Loreen MindenYou know for me it’s as much about visual adult matter (good old porn films) as it is the printed word, even if the printed word is in eformat. The brand new erotic ebook series Caprice: A Glamorous Erotic Series is a wild romp authored by six different lady writers and ranging from gentle to sweet-and-rough.

Spontaneous, domineering Caprice LaCroix and naïve, sweet Maren Jansen are best friends and journalists at Germany’s biggest tabloid magazine, FLASH. They jet-set around the world to get the biggest, most sensational scoops on members of international aristocracy, society high rollers, and the hottest celebrities. They go after the headlines with hard-hitting dedication, getting totally stuck in…’sucked’ being the operative word for sure with this adventurous pair.

From a steamy getaway in Cancun, to a delicious rendezvous with Manhattan’s elite, to sweet revenge involving bondage and a little bit of blackmail (the meat of installment “Steamy Days, Sensual Nights” by Inca Loreen Minden who I interview below) at $1.99, each unique Caprice erotic experience certainly fulfills desires at a wonderfully economical price, and makes perfect holiday gifts. They can be bought here.

The author list includes: Angelina Kay, Karyna Leon, Jaden Tanner, Annabella Wolf, Loreen Ravenscroft (Romantasy), Sandra Sardy and Inca Loreen Minden.

How did you get involved with contributing to this series?

Bastei Lübbe approached me and asked if I wanted to contribute an episode to the series, and I liked the idea of it from the very beginning.

Can you tell us a little bit about your professional writing background?

I have been writing books professionally for eight years, but I have always wanted to become a writer. When I was a child, some of my early writing-poems or other pieces-were published in our local newspaper. But after finishing school I started out with quite an ordinary job and became a dental technician. When my little boy went to kindergarten in 2006, I finally had some time for myself, and the passion for writing came back. I started out as a self-publisher, and it took me awhile before I actually handed in a piece of my own to a publishing house. But once I had done that, it only took a week before I got the first offer to publish one of my books. Since then I’m constantly writing and would even call myself a write-a-holic!

Do you have a specialty or specific niche in erotica?

I started out writing gay romance, which I would call one of my specific niches. In 2006 I was one of the first writers in Germany who wrote in that genre, and I basically spread gay romance across the German market. Once my first hetero erotic titles were published, I was able to reach a much bigger audience. One of my titles hit the number one spot on Amazon Germany and stayed there for three years! Since then, I don’t have to pitch to publishers anymore, they approach me.

There’s a good amount of interesting characters in “Steamy Days, Sensual Nights” Was it your idea to bring such a layered plot and well drawn characters into it?

The main characters were already set, but I developed the whole plot and the side characters myself. It was pretty new to me, writing some of that hard core stuff. But I enjoyed getting my hands dirty.

Did you gravitate to Caprice instead of Maren because a dominating character is more interesting to write?

Maren was a shy little mouse, the type of woman I cannot identify with at all. I prefer girls who can hold up with men and can defy themselves and let sparks fly. It was much easier to have fun with Caprice because she is so much wilder. I was able to let her try out all kinds of sexual variations. It was a very fun experiment!

Though eBooks are on the rise and certainly Fifty Shades Of Grey helped to make erotic e-lit more mainstream in the past few years, do you think too much of all this stuff could have a backlash? Are there any negatives to all this mainstreaming social media of erotic fiction?

In my opinion the erotic genre is still on the rise, especially in the digital sector. If you take a look at the top charts on Amazon, most of the time there are at least 60 present erotic titles. There’s new content every day, and things are not slowing down. The good thing is – readers who enjoy this genre tend to read lots and lots of books and need a fresh supply each and every day! In my opinion there’s no drop in sight; sex sells! It has always been like that and I am sure it will stay that way in the future.

Tell us what’s coming from you in the future and where can people find your writings?

I have a lot of new books coming out in Germany in the beginning of next year. In the English speaking market, my two next big projects are a young adult title called: Daniel Taylor and the Dark Legacy and a gargoyle romance called Hearts of Stone.

You can find my writing as e-books on all platforms. Most of the works are under my author name, Inka Loreen Minden, but I also publish under pseudonyms Lucy Palmer, Bailey Minx, and Monica Davis (young adult).
