Tour: Getting Ahead by Emily Cale (Guest Post)

Please give a warm welcome to erotica and erotic romance author, Emily Cale!

Writing with Wine

Given that my post today is on Reading Between the Wines, I thought I'd talk about wine. If you follow me on Twitter, you've probably heard me mention my love of wine one or two hundred times. I'm a strong believer in having a glass in the evening to help melt away the stress of the day. Nothing else is as helpful in making sure I can forget about the looming to-do list at my day job and focus on my writing instead. So I thought I'd talk about some of my favorite varieties.
Moscato: I discovered this sweet white by accident in the store one day. Now I hear about it from everyone. It's the perfect fun and flirty wine that I buy for girl's night or for writing happy scenes.
Pinot Noir: I have to admit that it took me a long time to start liking red wine. I'll still pick a white over a red most days of the week, but I've found myself more and more drawn toward this specific red. It goes well with the dark chocolate that I usually eat a pound of during revisions. Even though it isn't sweet, it always reminds me of dessert.
Sauvignon Blanc: This is my all time favorite variety of wine. When I first started drinking, this was always my standby at the liquor store. It is a nice not-too-dry white wine that I tend to drink a lot when writing. It pairs well with just about any scene and it works for the parties I throw too. 

Your turn. What's your favorite wine? Anything I should definitely pick up on my next outing?

  1. I have to say that I am not a wine drinker. I don't understand why everyone loves it. To me, it taste like... I can't even think of a word to describe it. I'd rather have a beer or a mixed drink. This book sounds amazing. Can't wait to read it.


  2. If you like the sweetness of Moscato then you should give Riesling a try. Sweet but different!
