Stretching the boundaries of what you read (plus a giveaway)

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys storeY’all know I’m a huge fan of romance novels. Well, in the past few years, I’ve branched out and started reading erotica. Well, I love to find out more about the writers whose books I am reading and I recently found out that EdenFantasys has multiple ways to explore erotica and learn about the authors. Of course, there is The Naked Reader Book Club. According to the web page, the Naked Reader Book Club allows you to “join venerated erotica publisher Cleis Press, EdenFantasys and SexIs in an ongoing online book club for inquiring minds who love to read about all things sexual—from the politics of pornography to the erotically evocative boundaries of desire.”

EdenFantasys also does interviews with a wide variety of people and recently, they did an interview that dovetails nicely with my desire to learn more about authors in this genre. They did an interview with author/editor Sacchi Green. This was such a fun and revealing read. Ms. Green answered in depth questions about the writing and editing process and she also entertained questions about her personal life.

To celebrate reading and to hopefully drag someone else into my love of romance and erotica, I want to have a GIVEAWAY. I’m going to pass on to one lucky reader a book from one of my favorite erotica authors, Lisa G. Riley. Now, I want to assure you that this is not porn. This book is a collection of 3 stories – all with strong story lines, well rounded characters, wonderful romance, and hot, steamy sex scenes. Along with the book, the winner will get a crocheted bookmark. The giveaway is limited to people who are 18 and over.

    Well, I do love a good romance every now and then and what is romance without steamy sex scenes??

    My favourite book, though, would have to be The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. It’s not the happiest of books, but I often find the best books aren’t. And it is a great read and wonderfully written.

    I’ve missed visiting you recently! How’ve you been, my dear friend?

    I can only choose 1? Haw about a series? Currently my favorite(s) are the Harry Dresden series though I love romances as well and will ready anything that Johanna Lindsey writes.

    Favorite book is Pride and Prejudice. I am pretty sure Jane Austen would not have read a book with steamy sex scenes. *smirk*

    It’s impossible to pick my favorite book of all time, but right now I’m obsessively loving “The Hunger Games” trilogy. I can’t wait to see the movie – as long as they don’t screw it up!

    Choosing a favourite book is soooo hard. You know I love a good romance, but I would have to say, if I was FORCED to narrow it down to one title, I would have to say “Taliesin” by Stephen Lawhead. It’s the first in his Pendragon Cycle, an intriguing retelling of the King Arthur legends.

    Oh, my, I need this. My mojo is GONE. Favorite BOOK is really tough, but favorite author is Barbara Kingsolver…and it depends on the day which of hers I like the most. Prodigal Summer might be tied with Bean Trees. Or Animal Dreams. Crap, I don’t know, LOL. I love that woman.
