|Cover of my soon-to-be released book |
in my Hot PurSuits Series
With everything going on something had to give and it's been my novel writing. I can't do it with all this chaos swirling around me. I have edits due for my next erotic novel that have been pushed off to August. I've NEVER delayed a book before. That's how crazy it's been. Now don't get me wrong. This is not a rant. I wouldn't do that to you. But it does explain why I haven't read a single thing since May. So when I started hearing people talking about this new book, I was had no idea what they were talking about.
Since I write erotica, everyone assumes that I keep up with the book market and what's hot and what's not. (Which of course I should be doing, but see above.) And judging by the talk going around in my small mountain community, Fifty Shades of Grey is hot. I was embarrassed to discover I had no clue what they were talking about so I guess I better find out.
So I'm borrowing the book from my sister-in-law and will have time on my next business trip to check out what all the excitement is about. The one thing I do know before even opening the book is that a surge of interest in erotic novels will be good for the industry and hopefully, as the saying goes, a rising tide lifts all boats.
Once I get to my edits, I will have the second book in my Hot PurSuits series launch in the fall. Maybe I, too, can ride the tide of popularity. In the meantime, I'd love to recommend some hot summer reads, but I've had no time to read (see above, again) but I do have some favorites...The Time Travelers Wife and Water for Elephants. If you haven't read either of these, pick them up. They are amazing. (Both were made into movies as well, but of course, the book is always better.)
If on the other hand you've finished all Shades of ...trilogy, you might want to check out other Hot PurSuits!
