Spotlight: When In Rome: An Unexpected Vacation by Jessica Nyman

A young college girl wins a trip to Rome and while visiting the ancient ruins, she gets transported two thousand years back by a mysterious magic artifact. She is immediately seized by the city guards and brought before the most notorious emperor Rome had ever known. She's in for a big surprise and some hot, steamy sex beyond her wildest dreams. 

When In Rome Vol 1: An Unexpected Vacation is the first part of an erotic romance serial short stories exploring the kinky sex life of ancient Rome from the eyes of a twenty first century college girl. Approximately 7000 words.

Author Interview:
Can you describe your book in one sentence?
21st century girl ends up in ancient Rome, gets seduced by the emperor and doesn't want to go back!

What makes your book so different from all the books out there?
The story is about a sizzling romance between a 21st century college girl who travels back in time and a mighty Roman emperor, with a lot of kinky action. The reader gets to explore the sex life of ancient Rome from the eyes of a 21st century girl. There are supporting characters not involved in sex/romance, a complex plot and subplots. It's the first of its kind as far as I know.

How did you come up with your title?
It just came to me as inspiration. The saying is 'When in Rome you do as the Romans do', my heroine gets transported to ancient Rome from the 21st century and deals with the culture shock and tries to adjust to their ways. Each story in the series has a different title about the main plot of the story.

Do you write under a pen name?
Indeed I do. I write in another, completely unrelated genre under my real name and need to keep those separate for business reasons.

What was the process with getting the cover for your book? How do you like it?
A friend did the cover design and she did a tremendous job. I ran into her blog totally by chance. She does awesome covers for indie authors. Her name is Lillian Rose Asterios if you want to check out her work.

What is the hardest and easiest part about being an erotica writer?
The easiest part is finding something new and original to write about. The hardest part is making the sex scenes varied and coming up with new stuff to avoid boring the readers.

Goals for future projects? 
I want to do more time travel ancient history series. I am planning to do ancient Egypt erotica featuring sexy pharaohs!

Have you ever written anything else?
I have a novel in progress (which is not erotica) I have written about 230 pages of it so far.

What made you want to write erotica?
I'm a history buff with an emperor fetish and no one writes historical emperor fetish theme. I have written a series of historical essays about a few emperors on a high traffic web site, a lot of female readers wrote to me and said they would love to read historical romance/erotica involving the emperors. The lack of the theme in the market and the demand made me consider writing historical erotica.

What is your favorite part of being an author?
Making dreams come true in pages and bringing the characters to life."
