Life After Math

By S.L. Danielson (Guest Blogger)

Hello and thank you for having me on your blog site, Lisabet!

Greetings and salutations! I am author S. L. (a/k/a Stephanie, try to guess what the L stands for) Danielson! I am a multi-published author of m/m (male/male) romantic (and sometimes erotic) fiction.

I'm often asked why am I drawn to this genre and I have one answer; my imagination runs wild. I've been writing this genre since my teens and it just stuck like glue. I love it! I've been writing since I was but seven years of age and in between school, roller-skating, friends, and family there was always my writing.

My days now vary between simplistic and overwhelming. When I'm not working, it's the former, when I am, it's the latter. I'm a wife of 12 years, a "mother" to two adorable cats, a graduate student (MBA), and overall a computer geek. Now, when I'm working...all of the house items are looked after by my husband, and I come home to hopefully do some homework and maybe pound out a chapter or two.

As for works in progress, they number in about the two dozen range at the moment. I'm always working on something; it's finding the inspiration to do it that takes work.

March will be a banner month for me; my new book Life After Math comes out with Silver Publishing! I'm so excited! Not only because this is the first contract I've signed in over two years; but working with them has been wonderful and I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat! I don't have my cover yet, but I cannot wait to see it; I know it'll be terrific!

Now, about the book. Life After Math is a sequel to Love by the Numbers from 2009 (pub. by Publishamerica, paperback only, but looking to change that). It follows the couple in the book, two now 18-yr-olds named Scott and Jared. Scott is the geek, the overweight kid who was a whiz at math and was 'volunteered' to be his tutor. Jared, the blond, hottie, baseball superstar of the school who had no math aptitude, but needed to keep his grades up. The two met and the rest is a sequel!

Life After Math follows this duo into college and covers all four gruesome years. The first year is cake, but it gets very interesting from there. There's two other men involved who both want to see them broken up; the parents have their say, and the ending will keep you guessing until the last page!

Thank you again, Lisabet for a chance to say hello!

Most of my books are available at the following sites: Amazon, Smashwords, All Romance Ebooks, and if you love paperbacks, Lulu.

Greetings, S.L.! Welcome to Beyond Romance and congratulations on your upcoming release.

Two dozen works in progress? Good grief! How can you keep them straight? Still this seems to guarantee that readers have a lot to look forward to.

Life After Math sounds good as does the whole series. Congratulations on your new release! Did you have problems when beginning to write the series with their ages? Did you have to be careful when writing of their sexual explorations? How different is it writing of them in college vs high school?

Thank you for hosting me today, Lisabet!

I keep my works straight by trying to pare it down to only 2-3 at a time. Lately my schoolwork has been pulling me away from it; but I am working my way back since I have a goal of releasing 4 books this year!

As for my YA books, yes, I had to make sure nothing sexual was happening when they were only 17. I kept that in mind the entire time; since I'm familiar with the laws on it.

I wanted their relationship to build and deepen first before anything sexual happened beyond kissing/making out.

In Life After Math, they're both 18 and let's say they both take full advantage. :)
