How did you get started?
I've been a technical writer for about 20 years -- it only feels like more -- and like most tech writers, there resided within me a fiction writer wanting to come out. One day, I was doing laps in the local pool and my mind started to drift as it often does when you're doing laps. By the time I'd finished my workout, I'd plotted my first story, which became the opening chapter of Incubus. I posted the chapter on Literotica, not knowing what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised at the reception. After about 40 submissions to Literotica -- some roundly panned but most well-rated -- I decided to take the plunge and get into e-books.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is always a challenge, but there are days that it just flows and you re-read what you've written and have one of those "wow" moments. And of course, there are the readers who take the time to let you know that you've done a good job. That's really what gives me the greatest pleasure.
A well-written and compelling novella. I wish I'd paid more attention to the page count so that the ending wouldn't have come as such a surprise. That said, I do look forward to the next installment. Thanks for sharing it.
This short story came as a pleasant surprise. What seemed at the outset to be a straight-forward erotic episode was given satisfying context through frequent flashbacks. I particularly liked the fact that the characters express their reservations about the situation, all of which gives the narrative a maturity and honesty that is often missing in this type of story.
There have been a few books on my e-reader that contained a warning of explicit material. That said, I had to laugh when I read: "This is smut".
The ABC Room is smut, but of the best kind. The ABC Room tells the story of a college student who answers an advert for sperm donors. What he doesn't know, but quickly learns, are the various ways in which he's expected to deliver the product. Even as he performs his duties with verve and aplomb, the narrator, Liam, exhibits an endearing level of vulnerability and self-awareness.
The writing itself is crisp and engaging and the characters have a depth that one doesn't often find in stories of this length. And the smut is creative, descriptive, and hot.
I look forward to reading more from A.V Roe.
There's a lot to recognize in this story of Eva and Peter -- a couple who, overworked and perhaps over-familiar, need to jazz things up a little. While the choices they make may not be for everyone, they certainly do make for a great read. Highly recommended.
I've read just about everything A.V. Roe has written and would have to say that Last River to Cross is his best effort to date. The novel tells the story of an author in the twilight of his life who is visited by a succubus. Rather than being tormented by her, she shifts into the characters he has written about and enables him to live the erotic adventures that he has fictionalized in his novels.
It's an unusual device (insinuating the author in his own novel) and I had my doubts at the beginning, but as the novel progressed, I was completely sucked in.
While readers of Mr. Roe's other novels will have the benefit of being acquainted with certain characters, this novel doesn't require this knowledge. Last River to cross stands alone and is a thoroughly enjoyable, creative, and highly erotic tale.
