~~~ The Tombstone Bordello-B&B ~~~

Hello All~~~

I have been a bad, bad, blogger. And, after I promised readers and myself I’d post at least once a month. Sheesh! Well, I’m back on track. YEA!

My writing buddy Tami Sinclair and I took a fact finding trip to Tombstone, Arizona, in late January. It was a blast. While there, we stayed in the Tombstone Bordello (B&B), which was actually a working bordello in the late 1800s. The proprietors were wonderful. The breakfasts were tasty, the conversation great, and the beds totally comfy. I recommend it highly if you ever decide to visit Tombstone.

While there I learned all I need to know for my next erotic novel. It’s set in Tombstone, in a bordello of course. I know bordello life was often harsh and difficult. But the bordello that I’m writing about is one where the Madam is a shrewd business woman, fair minded, and careful with her employees. She also has an empathetic heart.

I’ve got the story in my head from beginning to end. Now I need to hit the keys, and flesh (ha) it out.

Onward, to the computer!!!

Angel Barbin said...

Great concept. Have you written an historical before?

Belle Sloane said...

Yeah, Angel. The first book I wrote (1999 - YIKES) was an historical. Also, the novella I sold to Red Sage, Sweet Charity, is an historical as well. :-)
