#BookBreak is the new #CoffeeBreak

I listened to a whole bunch of podcasts this weekend, including a number of episodes of Under the Influence. Not technically a podcast, okay.  Under the Influence is a CBC Radio program that looks inside the world of marketing.

One of the many things I learned from binge-listening is that many of the habits we take for granted actually started life as marketing campaigns. The coffee break, for instance. That was a made-up thing.

So it got me thinking... why can't I make something up? What's a book-related habit? Reading. I do it every day. How about if I piggyback on the already-established coffee break to establish the BOOK BREAK. Oh my gosh, I'm a genius!

Well, turns out so are a bunch of other people. When I searched the hashtag #bookbreak I saw that not only is there a vlog called Book Break, but lots of people tweet about what they're reading, even pairing a pic of their beautiful coffee with their beautiful book.

This is not a new idea, but I'm adopting it for the month of May. And I hope you will too, whether you're a reader or a writer. Tweet what you're reading every afternoon with the hashtag #bookbreak. It'll be fun.

Okay, but this whole line of thought started out in the marketing realm, so my brain is still going, "How can I make this about me?" haha.  I laugh, but I'm serious. How can I encourage people to read my books?

By giving them away. Of course.

So that's what I'll do this May.  I'll give books away every day on Twitter--every workday, that is.  Since most officey people work Monday through Friday, I'll do this Monday through Friday.

Here's what I'm thinking: I'll provide a different free ebook every day, probably from All Romance Ebooks since it's easy to change prices quickly at that site (so get an account if you don't have one).  My initial thought was to provide Smashwords coupons which you could redeem for a free book, but... is that too complicated?

Anyway, the key is that it's a different free book every day. I have a big back list. I can do these things.

Today's inaugural free book will be Giselle's Best Fetish Erotica, which I released last week for free. So far I've given away more than a thousand copies!  THANK YOU for picking one up.  How depressing would it be if I gave away a brand new book for free and nobody downloaded it?

OMG why did I even think that?

Giselle's Best Fetish Erotica will be going up in price to a whopping $0.99 starting today, but you can still get it absolutely FREE at All Romance Ebooks: https://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-giselle039sbestfetisherotica14kinkysexstories-2029278-354.html

And I hope you will!

Remember to tweet your #bookbreak read every afternoon!  I'm looking forward to lots of engagement, and that means from authors too. Don't be afraid to jump in and show us what you've got!

At the end of the day (or mid-afternoon), we're all readers.

P.S. Every time I type #bookbreak I think of Body Break:


Strengthen those wrists!

Get your copy of Giselle's Best Fetish Erotica today (it's FREE!)

It's here, it's new, and it's FREE!


I'm having a great day.

My girlfriend took me to the St. Jacob's farmer's market to celebrate our anniversary (8 years together!) and I've got a new book out, which I'm giving to you for FREE in celebration of ten years as a writer!

Giselle's Best Fetish Erotica is a collection of 14 kinky stories, some of which have appeared in erotic anthologies, some of which have never appeared in print before now. I blogged about it late last night at Oh Get A Grip! (You can catch me there every other Thursday, by the way. I do my best blogging at OGG.)

I wasn't able to make this book free at Amazon or Google Play, so it's currently priced at $0.99 at those two retailers. But there are TONS of places you can get this ebook for free, and I hope you do. This is a limited time offer. Tell your friends!

In the Meantime...

Call me irresponsible.  Call me unreliable.  Throw in undependable too...

I've been incommunicado of late, and I feel terrible about it.  I usually publish often and tell you all about it.  Recently, I've been working on anthology contributions and not telling anyone.  I've also been out of my apartment a lot due to noisy construction. Apart from fraying my nerves, that also means I'm not able to spend much time communicating with readers.

So what have I been up to lately?

This weekend I went to the Green Living Show and saw a pedal-powered washing machine that I very much want to own:


You can pre-order at their website http://yirego.com/ but it won't be available until November. *cries*

I also bought some Green Beaver deodorant and I'm very impressed.


As far as work stuff, I'm putting together a single-author anthology of fetish erotica featuring fun new stories as well as reprints from 2008 to present. If I can get my shit together, it should be available next week. Because I genuinely feel bad about being incommunicado for so long, I've decided to give this book away for free when it first comes out.

That's right. Brand new book of fetish erotica. Totally free.

But not forever free, so please sign up for my newsletter to get a heads-up when it hits the market:

http://eepurl.com/R4b11

In other news, you might have noticed my novel Anonymous is no longer available for sale. The publisher, Amber Quill Press, closed down at the end of March, so rights have reverted to me. I think I wrote that book in 2008 or 2010 (or 2011?), so I want to give it a good once-over before I get it back out there. If you haven't read it, Anonymous is a menage book about a woman who becomes obsessed with discovering the true identity of the man she hired to entertain her bisexual husband. Aside from The Other Side of Ruth, it's my most Toronto-centric book.


I'm also late getting Round 3 of the Lexi vs. Giselle Smut Smackdown out there. I want to thank everyone who followed me into taboo terrain in the first two rounds. Not everybody's cup of tea, but these stories certainly are popular.

Oh, I almost forgot why I came here in the first place!

Remember in December when I put out two erotic colouring books and donated all my royalties to an arts organization called Sketch, which serves street-involved youth?

Well, I'm doing it again in May... but starting now!

So now though the end of May, I'll donate all proceeds from my two colouring books to Sketch. There's a flash fiction one and a poetry one. If you ask me, the flash fiction book is better. ;-)

Remember to sign up for my newsletter to find out when you can get the new fetish erotica anthology for free: http://eepurl.com/R4b11

Love you!

#MySexySaturday In Fertile Ground: #Virgin #Breeding #Erotica

http://www.amazon.com/In-Fertile-Ground-Dark-Erotica-ebook/dp/B01DFGYTUM?tag=dondes-20
This week's My Sexy Saturday topic is "Some Sexy Action" and, let me tell you, that's what you're going to get with my new release from Excessica Publishing.

"In Fertile Ground" is a dark tale I wrote for the anthology Fertile Girls. If you haven't read it yet, prepare yourself! This is seriously erotic stuff:

When did I find out my first time would be given to Our Leader? I’ve always known. It’s the same for every girl here. After we come of age, we submit to the one man who is more than man, more than human. He is our high priest, godly in stature. His seed must be spread among every young woman at the commune. Each of us will bear a babe for him, each wife in turn.

Today my time has come. Our wedding night awaits…


Read 7 paragraphs from In Fertile Ground:

He takes hold of my hand and presses it against the soft, dark fabric. “It’s velvet.”

“I’ve never felt anything so soft, except the mosses in the forest.”

He hasn’t released my wrist when he asks, “Do you like the mosses in the forest?”

“Yes,” I say, though my throat runs dry. “I like them just after the rain, when they remain slightly wet.”

“Much like your skin,” he says as he traces his fingers up my arm. “Your mother did not dry you.”

“I’m sorry.”

He shakes his head and tells me, “Those were my instructions to her: bring your daughter to me wet.”

#MySexySaturday Wedding Heat: Friday #Erotica #BoxSet

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GFSK83U?tag=dondes-20
I think it's hilarious that this week's My Sexy Saturday topic is "My Sexy Carriage."

Why?

Because the first story in my Wedding Heat series takes place in a car. And, yes, the sex takes place in a car.  Or... on a car.

You'll see for yourself when you buy a copy of my Wedding Heat: Friday box set.

And how do I know you'll buy a copy? 

Because it's on sale for only $0.99 right now, and that's an amazing price for 6 erotic novelettes!

Dan undid his seat belt and then his leather belt. He shifted to the middle of the bench, unbuttoning, unzipping. He was crushing her maps, but when he pulled out his cock the maps were the last things on her mind.

“Thought you might want to finish what you started.” Dan stretched his arms across the back of the front seat, first toying with Cora’s hair, then pressing her head down.

“God, yes.”

Warm saliva accumulated under Cora’s tongue as she folded herself toward that straining cock. She almost wanted to cry again, but this time because her heart felt too full.

“I thought you didn’t care,” she told him. “Or… I thought you didn’t want me to, or…”

“I want you to.” Dan curved his big hand around the back of her neck, exerting pressure there. “Do you know how much it turns me on, knowing you think about this too?”

Cora growled a little, smiling. She grabbed his cock, hand over hand, both fists pulsing gently against his shaft. “I think about it all the time.”

To find out more about Dan and Cora (and their gay son and their lesbian daughter and their bisexual niece and the incredible cast of characters too numerous to mention here), you have GOT to get your hands on the Wedding Heat: Friday box set while it's on sale this week.

Adam and Sheree's Stepbrother Series #MySexySaturday

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C8XFNBW?tag=dondes-20

The complete collection has arrived! If you haven't read my Adam and Sheree series, this is your chance to get the entire trilogy for only $2.99--that's a buck a book! This is one seriously salacious series, full of stepbrother/stepsister sex, lesbian licking, porn production, multiple menages, and so much more.  If you've read the original Adam and Sheree series from Excessica, this is the Amazon-friendly version of that.


Adam and Sheree's Stepbrother Series: The Complete Collection is on sale this weekend at Amazon, so don't miss out! I mean it!  This is such a great deal!

“Knock, knock.”

Sheree stepped inside and closed the door. When Adam gazed across the room, all he could see was the tent in his shorts pointing straight at his sister’s tits. His dick knew what he wanted even before he did.

“Somebody’s happy to see me.”

“No.” Adam’s throat clicked as he sat up. “I thought we talked about this in the car.”

She jumped on his bed, pawing at his fly. “You talked, I listened. Well… I half-listened.”

“We can’t do this anymore, Ree.” He batted at her hands, but his wrists went limp. Only one of his muscles seemed to be in service at the moment. “It was different, at Gramma’s cottage. Like you said, we were sexual surrogates for each other, just scratching an itch.”

Without looking away from his erection, Sheree whined, “I’m still itchy.”


Do you have $3? Buy this collection now now NOW!!!
So much sex! So much taboo! So much HOT! Buy it! Buy it!!!
