I have a gift for you. It's a #transgender novel.

Today is International Transgender Day of Visibility, and I'll be quick because the day's almost over and I'm accidentally drunk-ish (it's a long, silly story--and you're right, I don't drink, so...?).  I'd just like to give the world a Coke... no, that's not right... give the world a gift: the gift of transgender lesbian romance.

If you've never read my book The Red Satin Collection, here's your opportunity.  I'm giving you a copy. For free.  Just like that.  Just because the woman I love is trans and so are many of my friends, and this is important in my real life and my writing life (which are getting harder and harder to distinguish, I must say).

Congrats to March's Big Print Sellers: Secret Confessions and Friday Night Lipstick

I'm always delighted to see print sales, because I love the idea of my books sitting on other people's shelves or night tables, or wherever they end up.

But I was especially delighted, this month, to see that Friday Night Lipstick was one of my hot sellers in the print category.  It's a beautiful erotic romance novelette--so HEA, so heart-warming!--but it's definitely not your typical romantic story.  This book stars a pair of trans women in their sixties--not exactly go-to characters for most romance readers or writers, but certainly relevant to (and plucked from) MY real life.
Friday Night Lipstick: Transgender Erotic Romance

List Price: $6.99

When Layla and Bernice first met, they'd never heard the word "transgender."

Twenty years later, Layla is a successful real estate agent living as a woman full-time, while Bernice is still married to a woman who won't let go of the husband she used to be.

On Friday night, when their facades break down, will these long-term friends finally admit they love each other? And, even if they do, how can married Bernice and swinging single Layla build a future together?

The other big seller was Secret Confessions, an oldie-but-goodie, especially if you're a fan of letter-style erotica.  This book contains 36 varied stories of "true" sexual confessions (and some of them actually are true... but I won't tell you which ones, LOL):

No naughty encounter is ever complete until you tell somebody about it. And who doesn’t feel a tingle while reading a naughty story and wondering, “Is this true? Did that really happen?”

In this collection, you’ll find a whopping 36 erotic stories, as explicit as they are wicked! These confessions involve lesbian encounters, exhibitionism, voyeurism, deception, threesomes, group sex, sploshing, ice play, public sex, fetish, female fantasies, anal play, stranger sex, spanking, insertions, bondage, and so much more!

Remember, a dramatic story that inspires and opens the heart of your reader in some way will always work best. Also, we do not like "as told to" stories. Please write in the first person about yourself or someone close to you. If you ghostwrite a story for someone else we will list his or her name as the author. If a story was previously published, we will probably not use it unless it ran in a small circulation venue.

In the middle of the night, Tilly's humping in her sleep...

OR IS SHE?

Well, I guess that's for you to decide.  Is homesick college girl Tilly dreaming, or is did her teddy bear really grow a huge cock in the middle of the night?

(Say whaaaat?)

Lexi Wood's newest erotic short, TEDDY TAKES TILLY, is quirky and nutty and incredibly weird. You'll love it!

(And, at $0.99, you'll love the price too!)


It’s Tilly’s first day at college and she’s more than a little homesick. Bad enough she has to share a dorm room with a total stranger, but being away from her family and her boyfriend is the pits! Good thing she’s got a teddy bear to hug.  He’s a big white ball of fluff and good for a cuddle, but how will Tilly react when Teddy gets fresh between the sheets?
                               
Word Count: 3,000



***

LEXI WOOD is a sock puppet who came to life one night while her keeper was out picking up Chinese food.  When nobody’s around, she bashes her face against a typewriter until stories come out. And those stories are shocking.

Lexi’s exterior is 53% acrylic, 37% nylon, and 10% recycled tinsel.  On the inside, she’s full of bloodlust, wanderlust, lust-lust, bathtub gin, and pills she found on the floor.  She also got into those tranquilizers you give your cat to get it in the travel carrier.  You shouldn’t leave those things lying around.

Handmade in Vulgaria.

When she’s feeling dirty, Lexi likes to be held in soapy water and rubbed vigorously.  In her spare time, she sits on the shelf, waiting for someone to shove a fist in her hole.

Twisted, with a side of "Blogger is the worst!"

Well, Blogger ate the first post I typed up, so let's try something different.  Let's try showing you the book that most recently ka-thumped through my mail slot:

Twisted: Bondage with an Edge

Anything from Alison Tyler is a friend of mine. Or something.
The Customer's Waiting: Lesbian bondage at work

So just a short post to show off my Twisted acquisition (or my acquisition of Twisted?). Edited by Alison Tyler. Published by Cleis Press. How can you go wrong?
"Be as kinky as you want to be," advises Alison Tyler in a commanding new collection that proves that bondage can bring a partner closer to their object of desire, both literally and figuratively. Whether by rope or silk scarf or cuffs, the bonds grow even tighter as readers surrender to the pleasures of BDSM. Twisted is a collection of kink and bondage tales curated by editrix extraordinaire Tyler, who has cornered the market in bondage erotica. She adds "I've been a bondage fanatic since I first understood that the word 'obey' could be used in a bedroom. That on my knees on a hardwood floor could be sexier than sprawled in a bed of silken, leopard-print sheets. That a velvet blindfold over my eyes or cold steel cuffs on my wrists could make my heart pitter-patter faster than a bouquet of scarlet roses or a glittery piece of jewelry." This sentiment is echoed in the author's tales in Twisted as well. These stories delve deep down into what bondage means, and prepare readers to bind down or behave.

Bestseller in Adult Children of Alcoholics: My Diary, LIKE IT'S 1999

Diary of a Teenager in Love with a Teacher

Hard to believe, but as I write this blog post, my diary "LIKE IT'S 1999: Diary of a Teenager in Love with a Teacher" is ranked #2 in Kindle > Recovery > Adult Children of Alcoholics at Amazon.

Never thought I'd see the day one of my books became a self-help bestseller. I kinda feel like Brian in that episode of Family Guy--you know the one--where he writes some bullshit piece of crap and then has to shovel his own hype.

I won't be hype-y about LIKE IT'S 1999. Primarily because it's not a self-help book.

OR IS IT?

It isn't.  It's a diary.  It's my diary from 1999, when I was reading all the other books in the Adult Children of Alcoholics category (well, not those books in particular, but books like them) and struggling, alone, to heal my poor damaged inner child.

If you want a textbook Adult Child of an Alcoholic, you're lookin' at me.  In that sense, my diary can easily be read as a case study. Me at 18, in love with a 50-year old man. Me at 18, in love with a MARRIED 50-year-old man.  Who happens to be my teacher.  Let's ask the professionals to weigh in on my life...

If you're an adult child of an alcoholic and you see my book on that bestsellers list and ask, "Hmm... should I buy that?" my answer is yes.  Yes, you should.  When I was a younger person, particularly when I was a child and teen, I would have given anything to know that there was someone out there who shared similar experiences.  I was a walking, talking ball of shame.  For so much of my childhood, I knew I had a secret, but I had no idea other people had that secret, too.

That's why I think you should buy my diary--to share my experience. Or to analyze and judge me.  The choice is yours.

But if you're buying my book because you're an adult child of an alcoholic and you need help, I would advise you to also select at least one of the other books in that category--like, an ACTUAL self-help book--and buy it as well.  Pick one that appeals to you in tone and in scope. I truly hope you'll find peace with some of the same issues I know all too well.

I've selected a few books from Amazon's Adult Children of Alcoholics category to showcase here. I haven't read any of them, so I can't tell you which are useful for whom (although I hope they're all helpful for everyone!): 

After the Tears: Helping Adult Children of Alcoholics Heal Their Childhood Trauma

Jane Middelton-Moz (Author), Lorie Dwinell (Author)

The trauma and grief of growing up in an alcoholic or addicted family create a lifetime of baggage. If you grew up in an addicted family, the dysfunction that permeated every aspect of your childhood may have seemed 'normal,' and you may not even realize the level of affect alcohol still has on your adult life—whether or not you drink.

 If you are one of the millions of Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOAs), the cost of your childhood pain can be unbearable. You may have learned how to 'survive,' but are you 'living' your life? Do you fear normal conflict? Do you blame yourself when something goes wrong—even when it isn't your fault? Are you a chaos junkie? Or do you just fear relationships because they are too difficult or too painful?

 Having devoted much of their careers to working with ACOAs, therapists Jane Middelton-Moz and Lorie Dwinell now take a deeper look into the origin and cost of childhood pain, as well as the grief resolution process that is integral to recovery. This revised and expanded edition of their groundbreaking 1986 hit After the Tears discusses the latest research and offers insights on living a good life despite a dysfunctional childhood by tackling issues such as intimacy, sibling relationships, codependency, breaking the alcoholic pattern, building a relationship with the inner child, forgiveness, and opening a window to spirituality.

The Complete ACOA Sourcebook: Adult Children of Alcoholics at Home, at Work and in Love
Janet Woititz (Author), Robert Ackerman (Foreword)

When they were first released in the 1980s, Janet Woititz's groundbreaking works, Adult Children of Alcoholics, Struggle for Intimacy and The Self-Sabotage Syndrome, provided a new message of hope to adult children who had grown up in the shadow of alcoholic parents. Their message today is as profound and timeless as it was two decades ago.

Now, in this complete collection, readers will learn again the insight and healing power of Janet Wotitiz's words. The Complete ACoA Sourcebook is a compilation of three of Dr. Woititz's classic books, addressing head-on the symptoms of The Adult Children of Alcoholics syndrome and providing strategies for living a normal life as an adult. Readers will find help for themselves: at home, in intimate relationships and on the job. They will discover the reasons for the way they think, believe and feel about themselves; ACoAs often feel isolated, have difficulty in relationships, in the workplace and in feeling good about themselves.

Readers who are familiar with Woititz's work will find wisdom once again in this classic collection. Those new to ACoA will gain fresh insight into their behavior patterns and find an avenue for self-love and healing. Noted ACoA expert Dr. Robert Ackerman, author of the best-selling Perfect Daughters and Silent Sons, provides a foreword and explains why Janet Woititz's message will continue to help millions of readers for generations to come.

The ACOA Trauma Syndrome
Tian Dayton (author)

Growing up in a home where there is addiction or relationship trauma puts a child at great risk for long-term, post-traumatic stress effects that adversely compromise adult relationships. Bestselling author, psychologist, and psychodramatist Tian Dayton examines this trauma through an exploration of the way the brain and body process frightening or painful emotions and experiences in childhood, and she shows how these traumas can become catalysts for unhealthy, self-medicating behaviors including drug and alcohol abuse, food issues, and sex, gambling, and shopping addictions.

Through Dr. Dayton's insightful analysis and thoughtful examination, Adult Children of Alcoholics will learn how and why the pain they experienced in childhood plays out in their adult partnering and parenting, and they will learn how to restore health and happiness through their resilience.

Lexi Wood is Weird and so is "Daddy Meets the Easter Bunny"

Oh boy.  This one is... I don't even know.  How am I supposed to introduce Lexi's new story?

You know what?  I'm not introducing it.  I refuse.  Here's the blurb:


Daddy Meets the Easter Bunny is NOT a children’s story!

This erotic Easter smutfest should not be read by anyone, ever, but if by chance you decide to peruse its filthy pages, please be absolutely sure that you are not a child!

So you’ve decided that you are, without a doubt, a legal adult? (If you’re still not sure, check your birth certificate.) And you think you might be in the mood for an erotic story? This titillating tale is about a distraught Easter Bunny who can’t lay her eggs (yes, she lays eggs--don’t question the magic) without a little help from the man of the house.

Warning: Don’t try this at home. Any of it. Even if you do, by some miracle of nature, find a cute, horny bunny girl in your backyard, DON’T DO ANY of the nasty things featured in this book! You’ve been warned.


If anyone on the planet is even moderately interested in buying Lexi's latest, here are some links:


Oh, right, I forgot to mention that some retailers don't accept the word "Daddy" in adult books titles, so at those retailers (you know who you are, you bastards!) the book is listed as "The Man of the House Meets the Easter Bunny."

Another Lexi Original: In Bed With Uncle Larry

By day, she takes care of his kids. By night, she takes care of him.

Oh, there are a million reasons Theresa should keep her paws off Larry. For starters, he’s her uncle. In case that’s not enough, she’s been playing nanny to his kids since their mother ran off.

When the boys go to a sleepover, Theresa secretly hopes she’ll get to spend a night in her uncle’s bed. She’s an attractive young woman. How could he possibly resist? But when Auntie Mira returns unannounced, will Uncle Larry want his irresponsible ex back… or show his niece he loves her more?

In Bed With Uncle Larry

Read an excerpt:

By the time Uncle Larry knocked on her door, the sun was setting, making the pool out back glitter like gold.

“Teri?” he asked as he opened the door. “Can I come in?”

She felt like a child. Such a child. “I guess so.”

“Thanks.” He left the door open and sat on the edge of her bed. “You didn’t want to see your aunt, huh?”

“Did you want to see her?”

He chuckled. “Not particularly.”

Theresa folded in on herself, pulling her knees right up to her chest and hugging her legs. “Well, me neither.”

He looked at her in silence, but it wasn’t the way she wanted him to look at her. He seemed to be either analysing her or pitying her. She wanted him to be overtaken by lust, and she wasn’t sure how to get him from point A to point B.

“How about this,” he said. “Let’s go out tonight, have a nice dinner just the two of us? How often do we get a chance to be adults together, no kid stuff, no scuffles to deal with?”

Theresa’s heart hammered. “You really mean it? A fancy meal, just us?”

He shrugged. “Why not?”

She squealed, but then said, “Wait, I didn’t bring any nice clothes—I mean, nothing super-fancy.”

“Look through your aunt’s closet.” He guided her out of her bedroom with his hand at the small of her back. “Mira didn’t take everything with her.”

A hot pulse grew between Theresa’s thighs as she entered Uncle Larry’s bedroom. She almost never went in there, and if she did it was only because the boys dragged her inside. This was the only devotedly adult room in the house. The d├ęcor was sensuous, but modern. Probably the work of her aunt.

But Uncle Larry’s bedroom also oozed a masculine odour she hadn’t noticed in the rest of the house. The air felt thick in her lungs. She could barely breathe, but she didn’t want to leave. Actually, she wanted to curl up under his covers, sniff his musky sheets, and stay there forever.

“See anything you like?” Uncle Larry stood in front of the open closet. “Teri?”

“Huh? Oh. Clothes…”

LIKE IT’S 1999: Diary of a Teenager in Love with a Teacher

If you're an author, you know the anxiety and exhilaration that go along with a release day.  Well, what if your book wasn't fiction?  What if you were exposing yourself in a way you'd never done before... by publishing your teenaged diary?

Well, if you've visited Donuts and Desires much over the past month, you're probably aware that today's new release, LIKE IT’S 1999: Diary of a Teenager in Love with a Teacher is just that: my actual diary from when I was 18 years old and, as the title suggests, in love with a teacher.

Many of you have told me how excited you are to read my journal, because you're all a bunch of emotional voyeurs, but, hey, have at it!  That's what it's there for. Be warned, though, if you're a fan of my erotic fiction: this is NOT that. It's not a sex diary. In fact, there is no explicit content... certainly not in an "erotica" sense.

I've changed the names of every player (my New Year's resolution was to name all my characters after Toronto subway stations, but I used up pretty much every one on this book), so don't go lynch-mobbing some guy named Lawrence West.  That's a subway station, not a person.  In fact, it was Sweet who convinced me to name the teacher "character" Lawrence. The married man in my Audrey and Lawrence series was also based on him. I thought I'd be be original and call him Wilson, but then you'd just be picturing a volleyball the whole time, so I guess it's just as well.

Okay, enough talk, Giselle.  Get to the good stuff.

Here's the book description:
True confessions of a real-life high school student on the cusp of a new millennium.

On the eve of the year 2000, high school student Giselle struggles with spirituality, ambiguous friendships, a family dealing with the aftermath of substance abuse, and deepening feelings of attraction toward her English teacher, a married man more than twice her age. Over the course of one school year, she shifts from seeing Lawrence as a father figure to falling obsessively in love. Is Giselle making a total fool of herself, or will her teacher return her affection? Having an affair with a student would easily cost Lawrence his career, his wife, and his kids, not to mention his sanity. Will a by-the-books teacher sacrifice everything to indulge Giselle’s teenage crush?

LIKE IT’S 1999 is the actual, unabridged, honest-to-god diary of a teenager in love with her teacher.

I may be a little biased, but I really think you should buy a copy. I recommend the paperback, but the e-book is a really reasonable price, so the choice is yours.  Plenty of places to find both:

In the Month of Mainstream

I'm not exactly known for my mainstream fiction, but this March Giselle Renarde Erotica is being taken over by Giselle Renarde Other Kinds of Writing.  Sounds official, eh?

March's big book releases are both suitable for a general audience.  Or maybe they're more PG.  I don't know much about rating systems, but I do know these books don't click the Adult Content box. They are not explicit titles.

And, in fact, the first release isn't even fiction.  You've probably heard me talking about it, because I've been talking about it a lot:

Like It's 1999: Diary of a Teenager in love with a Teacher launches March 14, 2014. If you pre-order now, that's when you'll get it.

The other book that's coming out is called Ugly Naked People and Other Stories.  You may remember Ugly Naked People from such publishers as Untreed Reads.  It's a short story about a lesbian with an eating disorder, to be concise. 

Well, it received a good deal of praise, and now my publisher has decided they'd like to wrap it together with other short stories I've written so you can buy one convenient collection of my diverse short fiction.  And diverse it is--there are gay aging parents, lesbian family drama, a contemporary Inuit horror story, and even a reunion romance about older adults. Something everyone!

Score one for everybody's who's interested in reading non-erotic fiction (and non-fiction!). March is your month!

Cheers,
Giselle

At The Office With Uncle Larry: More Taboo Erotica from Lexi Wood

Oh, this sock!  The smut she writes!

Lexi Wood's latest ebook is a dirty little number called "At The Office With Uncle Larry," available at Amazon as "At The Office With TABOO Larry."  It's exactly what it sounds like: uncle/niece erotica set in an office building. And to make it that much more titillating, she's not just his niece--she's also the nanny!

By day, she takes care of his kids. By night, she takes care of him.

Oh, there are a million reasons Theresa should keep her paws off Larry. For starters, he’s her uncle. In case that’s not enough, she’s been playing nanny to his kids ever since their mother ran off.

When Theresa surprises Uncle Larry at the office, she can’t wait to get his pants down. But wait… his workplace has an open-concept design? Now where are they supposed to get their afternoon delight?

Larry can’t resist his naughty niece in a sexy summer dress. Maybe he’ll just have to take her in his boss’s office, press her up against the plate glass window, and give the whole city a look at her naked, nubile body.

Either way, his co-workers can’t find out what’s going on. It’s too taboo…

It's Read An Ebook Week. Have I Got Sales For You!


March 2-8th is Read an Ebook Week and that means huge savings at Smashwords. They've got this sale going on where you can save 25%, 50%, 75% or even 100% on select titles.

I only realized this sale was happening about 5 seconds before it started, so I set a bunch of stuff on sale like pow-pow pow-pow without keeping track of what I was doing.

All I know is that a lot of my work is on sale--particularly the big ticket items... well, if you call $5.99 a big ticket item.

Have a look. Here's my publisher page, which includes my work and Lexi Wood's:
