Hi Meghan and welcome to Under the Covers! We are very excited about the recent release of THE VIRGIN ROMANCE NOVELIST and can’t wait for everyone to read it!
Tell us a bit more about the story and what was your inspiration for it?
The Virgin Romance Novelist is about a 23 year old virgin who hates her current job and wants to finally write that romance novel she’s been thinking about for a while, the only problem is, when she gets to the sex scenes, she completely chokes because you guessed it….she’s a virgin. The story plays out her trials and tribulations of the dating world and everything that could possibly go wrong while she tries to lose her virginity. Oh poor, poor Rosie.
The inspiration for the book came about two two and a half years ago when I started writing myself. I was so excited to write and finally play out the thoughts and conversations I was having in my head but when it came to the sex scenes, I clammed up and started to sweat. I didn’t know much about writing sex and making my words actually sound sexy, so I thought, if I was uncomfortable writing a sex scene, how would a virgin feel? The story kind of developed after that.
This book is hysterical! But I have to ask. Are any of the events in the book based on real life experience (yours or someone you know)?
Yes, haha. There are so many things that are real life. One alpha scene in particular…yeah, I was that girl. When you read the book, you will know what I’m talking about. The baby powder, that was my mom. Not the swing dancing, but the wake of baby powder puffs, she is notorious for putting too much baby powder in her underpants. She actually read the book and was like, “MEGHAN!!!!” I laughed too hard.
Do you have a favorite quote or moment in the book you’d like to share with our readers?
One of my favorites…
“I’m a virgin,” I blurted out, knowing that was a giant red flag when it came to guys. “I’m a stage five clinger. If you poke me with that penis, I will want to marry you tomorrow. I actually already love you. I didn’t have to go to the bathroom, I was preparing my engagement speech to you, because I want to propose, and if we have sex, I guarantee you I will get pregnant, condom or not. My vagina eats condoms actually and my eggs are more than willing to pull your sperm into their sacs as hostages. We can make a baby today, just say the word. Marriage, babies, and I love you. I love you. I love you.”
The perfect way to get out of a date without making the guy feel bad 🙂
How would you describe Rosie in 3 words?
Romantic, Naive, Hot-Mess
How do you normally celebrate release day? A picture would be great!
I usually rock back and forth while shoving a burger down my gullet, hoping and praying people like me, haha. This go around, I watched Bridget Jones and ate french toast. I don’t have a picture but I do have this pre-celebration I did in my Lady’s Depends and Nick Bateman shirt. Can we all agree that Nick looks great plastered against my body?
In case the title doesn’t say it all, can you tell readers what they can expect in THE VIRGIN ROMANCE NOVELIST in 140 characters or less?
Hee-Haw donkey laughing, pants wetting, pig snorting, convulsing until it hurts kind of humor. #TVRN #SorryImNotSorry
What’s next for Meghan Quinn?
THE BOURBON SERIES!!!! Forever a Jett Girl is up next, the final installment in the series and then, KACE gets his story. I am currently writing it right now and God, I am so in love with the man. Is that weird? I literally hump my computer screen when I’m writing a sex scene. I also have the fourth book of my Hot-Lanta series coming out at the end of the year and I have a new book coming out I think in August that has been waiting patiently for it’s turn. It’s about MALE MODELS!!! It’s a sweet and funny story but sexy too, it’s called Newly Exposed, get ready to fall in love with Adam and Solo. Yes, I said Solo…there is some damn fine reasoing behind the name. You will just have to read to find out.
Thanks so much for sharing with us today and we can’t wait for all your upcoming books!!
Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch…
Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave?
God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch.
I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience.
My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups.
But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…
