Update 2:38 p.m.: Alice Clayton called us hours after this post was published to share some exciting news: She's signed with Simon & Schuster. The publisher acquired her three previously published books and the fourth one that she is working on now.

Erotic novelist Alice Clayton doesn't write your typical, love-at-first-sight romance novels, with sex on the beach and meaningful eye contact. Her characters worry about their unshaven legs, and one gets pooped on by a seagull before she ever gets the chance to have a roll in the sand.
"For me, real life is the cat throws up on the floor in the middle of it," Clayton tells Daily RFT. "You get shit on by a seagull, you absolutely do. The dog starts howling, the kid's knocking on the door. And if you can keep going, that's a keeper. That's adult romance."
Clayton, who is based in St. Louis, has published three novels in the comedic erotica vein, and is currently writing her fourth. In her spare time, she's also working on a travel show concept called Have Boobs, Will Travel.More »
