A Vampire-Alien Romantic Comedy for #MySexySaturday

The other day I told you about my quirky SciFi RomCom EARTH BLOOD IS EASY. Today I'm going to share a little excerpt with you, because it's on sale for $0.99 until the end of May and I really want you to buy a copy. Or read it FREE if you're a Kindle Unlimited type of person.





Check out 7 paragraphs from EARTH BLOOD IS EASY:

“What is this place?” she asked, feeling stupid, feeling like a tourist. “I mean, what’s it called? Your club… what’s the name of it?”

“My club has no name,” Conrad said as he swept her hair over her shoulder. “Everybody in the group knows that when night falls, you come to Conrad’s.” His dark eyebrows lowered into a dubious expression. “But you’re not part of the group, so I wonder how you knew to come here. It’s a carefully guarded secret.”

What was she supposed to say? I heard about it from an alien squirrel? But as she struggled to formulate a response, the music inside the club went from loud to louder and she jumped right off the ground.

Conrad’s dubious grin swelled into a full-blown smirk. “You’re not from around here, are you?”

“Is it really that obvious?”

His eyes twinkled in a way that made her wonder if he enjoyed her discomfort. “Come on, let me show you my office. It’s considerably quieter in there.”

He took her by the arm with a grasp that told her she was going nowhere but with him...

Must Love Dolls


Once upon a time, I wrote an erotic threesome story about a married couple and a love doll. It appears in a Rachel Kramer Bussel sex toy anthology called Come Again. Rachel springboarded extensively off Must Love Dolls to write this awesome piece called The Human Side of Sex Dolls: http://ladysmut.com/2015/05/15/the-human-side-of-sex-dolls/

It's really superb. You should give it a read.

You can also check out my interview about Must Love Dolls at the bottom left-hand side of this page: http://www.comeagainbook.com/#!comegainqanda/c370

Read interviews from other authors in the book while you're there.

Here's Come Again at Amazon if you just want to buy the book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NP8MLA6/ref=dondes-20
and Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Come-Again-Sex-Toy-Erotica-ebook/dp/B00NP8MLA6

Now back to your regularly-scheduled Friday.

Earth Blood Is Easy: An Out-of-this-World Vampire Romance

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XX5PM4I?tag=dondes-20
Remember a while back when I asked your advice about what to do with my vampire-alien romantic comedy?

Remember how I told you it was a funny little book, previously published in a box set that's now off the market?

And remember how I said that, while I love this adorable novel, it's nothing like the rest of my work? It's a light and breezy romance about an alien who happens to be a vampire. There's no erotic content, so it's cool for young adult readers (and old adult readers, and pretty much anyone, really).

My main concern was that I didn't want younger readers to pick up Earth Blood is Easy and then go looking for similar works by this Giselle Renarde person. I haven't written anything similar. It's truly one-of-a-kind.

That's why you advised me to publish Earth Blood is Easy under a pen name. Remember that? Well, I took your advice. The cutest book I've ever written is now available (at the introductory price of $0.99!) as Earth Blood is Easy by Emily June.

Where did that name come from? Well, I asked my girlfriend, "What would be a good name to use?" and right away she said, "Emily." And I was all OoOoOo because that was exactly the name that popped into my head, too. Spooky, right?  As for June, that's a family name. It's also a pretty great month.

I decided to go all Kindle Unlimited on this book's ass, so for its first 90 days on the market Earth Blood is Easy will be exclusively available from Amazon. If you're a KU subscriber, read it free. I'll let you know when it's up at other retailers. I'll also let you know when the print version comes out. That'll be soon.

The moral of the story is: buy the ebook right now because it's $0.99. The End.

Alexxia’s stranded on Planet Earth without a blood source! When she meets a mysterious club owner, will she become too entranced by Earth’s underground vampire culture to leave?

Nom Nom Nom(inate me)

Hi Everybody!

Remember Runts?
I haven't done this in YEARS, but I'm going to swallow my pride (which shouldn't be too difficult--it's about the size of banana Runts) and ask if you wouldn't mind nominating me for something.

Every year a free Toronto paper called NOW does this best-of-the-city thing, and they actually have a category for Best Author. I'm a Toronto author, but I'm not sure other Torontonians are aware that I'm ONE OF THEM (or maybe they do and they're just not proud of it--who knows?)

Anyway, the main reason I'm asking is that it is SO RIDICULOUSLY EASY to nominate me. You don't have to submit any personal information. Not your name. Not your email address. Nothing.

All you have to do to suggest a nominee is click here:
http://bestof.nowtoronto.com/2015/nominate.cfm?category=154&subcategory=1369
...then type Giselle Renarde where it says NAME

You don't have to fill in the address or phone # sections (that's more for nominating businesses like restaurants or shops) and you don't have to enter ANY person information--not even your email address.

Please nominate me!
Big Hugs,
Giselle

#MySexySaturday Flash in the Pen: 24 Extremely Short Erotic Stories

Got a minute? Read a quickie!

Flash in the Pen features two dozen tantalizing tales—one for every hour of the day, if you can wait that long to read them. Once you start, you might never want to stop! This book is erotic tapas. You get a delicious taste of everything from tantric energy exchanges to sudden stranger sex, from BDSM to butt plugs.
  • Girls acting like kitties and pretending to be puppies.
  • Fisting. First times. Fantasies.
  • Sexy surprises.

There’s a little something for everyone in this collection, so get ready for a frenzy of flashers!

Since it's My Sexy Saturday, here's a 7-paragraph excerpt from Flash in the Pen. This one's from a story called Two Girls Kissing. I wrote it as I watched two girls kissing in the park across the street:

I'm sitting by the window, gazing out at the park across the street, and what priceless display of wanton lust catches my eye?

Two girls kissing.

Two girls kissing... oh my GOD, it's two girls kissing. Am I seeing this right? Is it wishful thinking?

Nope, it's real. They're young and pretty, wearing short shorts and tight tops because even at eight in the evening it's still hot outside. Their long limbs are all tangled together. They're wrapped up in each other's smooth bodies. One is petting the other's bare thighs... and they're kissing.

They're kissing the way I used to kiss when I was young and in lust. They're kissing in a public park, right there for everyone to see. I used to do that, too, when I was young... and in lust... and in love.

There's something in the way they lunge at each other, devouring mouths, tongues, smashing their full lips and their tiny breasts together and running their hands through each other's hair that reminds me of my youth.

There are no subtle pecks, no flighty "because I have to" shows of pseudo-affection. These are unanticipated guerilla kisses. I can tell. It's like neither of these girls expects the kiss to happen until they're neck-deep in it.

Flash in the Pen is a steal at $2.99. Grab your copy from:

Tell me what you're up to, TK Hansen!


TK Hansen
Writing. Always writing . . .
Got the book published on Smashwords. Amazon refused it because of the adult content. Their guidelines appear to have changed considering what they have sold in the past! Can't please everyone I suppose, ho hum.

Giselle
Amazon's picky about stupid stuff--I had a book blocked because the word "virgin" appeared in the blurb. Not that they'll ever tell you exactly what the trigger was. Usually it isn't the content that'll get your book banned, but rather the blurb containing some word they've red-flagged or the cover being too explicit. Tricky stuff.
Anyway, got a new book out?

TK Hansen
Final Night

Giselle
Tell me about it.

TK Hansen
A transgender crime story. Very adult content.
Sandra Kirk is trying to come to terms with a violent sexual assault. She is part way along the difficult road to gender reassignment, still in the merry-go-round of psychological assessment.
Fortunately, she has supportive friends, although they are troubled that she must resort to selling herself for sex in order to raise the necessary capital to complete the gender transformation in Thailand. The end - as Sandra is fond of saying, perhaps to convince herself - justifies the means.
Then her boyfriend takes her on a business trip to the Isle of Wight where, to her horror, she encounters the two people who assaulted and raped her.
From the depths of her anguish she evolves a plan to pay them back for the pain and humiliation they have caused her ...

Giselle
Wow, that sounds kick-ass! Where can readers buy it?

TK Hansen
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/520318

Giselle
Where can readers find you?

TK Hansen
My own website: http://bit.ly/1A8rgze
Free short stories on there too. Generous or what :)

Giselle
Thanks so much for telling us about your book!
