It's the "With Love" Valentine's Day Blog Hop

One day I'll get this right.

I try, I really do.

Until I met my Sweet, I was never much of a romantic. I thought Valentine's Day was hyper-commercialist bullpoopy--which, realistically, it is--but now that I have this wonderful girl to spoil, I actually REALLY enjoy it.

I LOVE giving my girlfriend presents, especially jewelry. But at my core, I'm still the same kid who used to make my mom bead necklaces for her birthday. To me, the best gifts are those that represent time and identity. I like stuff that's unique, and the best way to secure a one-of-a-kind gift is to make it yourself.


Maybe I just really suck at making jewelry, but to this day I've never seen my girl wear anything I've crafted for her. I try to make stuff that reflects her taste, but I don't know if I've succeeded. I've bought her three rings in the time we've been together (mainly because I have no idea how to make a ring LOL), and she wears them all the time. There's one she wears every single day. The store-bought jewelry, she wears.

But I'm not giving up, not yet. I went to my local bead store, picked up some awesomeness, and made Sweet a bracelet. It looks SUPER cool. Did I get it right? Will she like it? Will she wear it?

Only time will tell. But seriously--cross your fingers for me, because I don't have a great track record with this stuff. LOL

Thankfully, my track record with writing is a lot better. And, just in time for V-day, I've got a new ebook on the market--a reissue, actually, of a work originally published as All in a Valentine Day's Work. It's back as GOOD BI VALENTINE, available pretty much anywhere you'd want to buy an ebook:

Good Bi Valentine

By: Giselle Renarde
Published By: Excessica Publishing

Spend Valentine's Day with Lexi the Sexi Superintendent and her apartment building full of very naughty tenants.

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 gift to each other: homemade porn!

WARNINGS: This title contains m/f and f/f sex, mild BDSM, and graphic descriptions of cheesy 1980’s porn, including but not limited to fluorescent and animal print bikinis. Originally published as ‘All in a Valentine Day’s Work.’

Now, this is the part where you're asking "What can I win?" This is a blog hop, after all!

Well, since I'm busy promoting Good Bi Valentine, a bisexual title, why don't I give you the gift of some other bi books I've written? I'll be giving away 10 books, 1 to each of 10 winners, and I'll draw those winners after the blog hop is over (Feb 14, 2012 at midnight). You have the opportunity to win:

Wonderful Wing Boys
The Birthday Gift
Friends of Dorothy
Future Histories: Transgender Sci-Fi Erotica
All The Way
Secret Confessions: 36 Erotic Encounters

I don't like forcing readers to post their email addresses online, so instead I use surveymonkey to collect your address and which book you'd like to win. Here's the survey link:

Good luck, everybody! And there are TONS of other prizes you can win from other authors, so check out The Blog Hop Spot!

  1. Hope you have a naughty Valentine's Day.

  2. Hope all your dreams come through this Valentine's Day.

  3. Thanks for playing!

    I just finished sending out prizes (like, what else would I be doing at 4:30 in the morning?) and thought I'd share the statistical breakdown of book requests, for all the other geeks out there who like numbers.

    Of all respondents:

    6.7% requested Ondine
    6.7% requested The Birthday Gift
    13.3 % requested Wonderful Wing Boys
    33.3% requested All The Way
    40% requested Secret Confessions

    The new kid on the block wins out, followed closely by my Christmas 2010 menage release. I guess that's enough geekiness for now.

    Thanks for stopping by!
