What does that mean, exactly? Just means that everyday I'm flipping back and forth between my author pages at Fictionwise and All Romance ebooks to see which of my books are selling best. I know how narcissistic this sounds. It is narcissistic. It's authorial masturbation, baby.
Still, I want to share with you which works are in the top spots. I don't know why. I just want you to know.
So, here we have it. This week at Fictionwise, the top selling works of Giselle Renarde Erotica are:
An erotic journey through the worlds of ballet, art, and passionate liaisons, Ondine is a sensual exploration of pansexual free love wrapped in a boy-meets-girl tale of mix-ups and misunderstandings.
Kandinsky's Shirt Button
What sort of work does the stunning Violette perform?
“Paid Companion,” she tells Arthur the quirky accountant, with a clever smirk.
Enraptured by her beauty, Arthur plans to spend his life’s savings on appointments with the dazzling artist. He looks beyond her obsession with the goddess Venus, he ignores the clues in her medicine cabinet, but how will Arthur react when he discovers his beloved Violette is a transwoman? Will his love for the beauty of her soul, a beauty she denies again and again, extend to her male body? Violette is, she claims, “About as beautiful as Kandinsky’s shirt button.”
Audrey & Lawrence
An affair is always easy in the beginning. There's plenty of steamy sex and getting-to-know-you. Everything is for now. Immediate gratification. No thought of the future.
That's how it starts for Audrey and Lawrence. Audrey's only concern is helping an unhappy man trapped in a sexless marriage revive the virility of his youth. That approach doesn't last long. As her affection builds, she wants more than she can have, and more than Lawrence is willing to give.
Over the course of twelve breathless stories, Giselle Renarde's famous femme fatale tips from the lofty realm of youthful adoration into the dark pit of jealous love. Will her behaviour get out of hand when the affair grows beyond her heart's control?
And, at All Romance Ebooks, top sellers are:
Beneath the Ice
The sea monster Kaloopalooit lives in the cracks of the ocean ice, devouring the children of the Arctic.
When Enooya bets her husband she's a better fisher than he, she sets off unperturbed to the fissures in the sea ice. After all, the Kaloopalooit is just an imaginary monster the elders created to scare kids. Soon enough, Enooya discovers just how real the Kaloopalooit is, when it pursues her, dragging her down into the icy waters. The sea monster is beautiful and horrible, shimmering and bizarre. In exchange for breath, it demands that Enooya secure children for its dinner. Enooya has a better idea: Why not sample the delicacy called woman?
Waxing is for Pussies
Claire is a butch dyke who doesn't go in for all the "girly" stuff. Her girlfriend Billie works at a salon, joyfully painting nails all day. When Billie takes up hot waxing, she asks Claire to be her test subject. She also asks her salon buddy Soo Jin to give her hand. How will Claire and Billie react when Soo Jin takes the request for help as an invitation to play?
All in a Valentine Day's Work
Lexi the Sexi building superintendent (okay, assistant super) thinks she's taking Valentine's Day by storm. She doesn't do ‘romance' or ‘relationships.' Casual sex with attractive tenants is more her style. After an exhausting porn-watching session with a cute guy in the building, the beautiful Mrs. Suraj won't release her until those rusty pipes are fixed. The sexy super comes home to a pussycat pair of college friends desperate for someone to help them out with their Valentine's Day gift to each other: homemade porn! For Lexi, gettin' it on is all in a Valentine Day's work!
I think it's neat that there are no repeats between those two lists. I also think it's neat that a V-Day book is selling in June. Check in next week when I give you an updated update.
Canada just got hotter!
