Sex Stats for A Man of Vision

Just for fun, I worked out some stats for A Man of Vision, the story I just sent to Ellora's Cave.

Number of Sex Scenes: 5
Shortest Sex Scene: 409 words
Longest Sex Scene: 1850 words
Sex percentage: 40%

Forty percent! That's almost half the book! Sheesh.

Here's a blurb, in case you're curious.

For Cristoforo de Medici, sculpting marble is his life, but the price of creation is a libido that rides him like a demon. When he discovers his days as a sculptor are numbered, he seeks out a mistress, available to satisfy him night and day.

As a modern-day courtesan, Delphine Alexander arrives at de Medici’s villa prepared for the rigors of being on call 24/7, especially since she negotiated an exorbitant amount of Euros in exchange for her services. What she isn’t prepared for, however, is the intensity of her body’s response to Cristoforo, and when she learns what it is driving him so ruthlessly, she wonders if she can protect her heart or if it’s already too late.

Sheesh. You not only find time to write books and articles, but also blog about them and statistically analyze them, too. And you're a mom. You put me to shame. What's the secret -- and do they sell it at Starbucks?

Oh, you give me too much credit. I haven't written one word for ten days, and my kids (11 and 12) are older than yours. :) Still I had two coffee drinks today, both with triple shots. LOL

Thanks, Laura. Blurb writing is hard, but synopsis writing is harder!
