Cougar or Not, Here Comes COUGAR'S EVE!

Happy New Year's Eve! 

Some of you probably have big plans for tonight. I know I do! But I realize you aren't all lucky enough to have brothers willing to share their new jigsaw puzzles with you while staring at the Netflix screen and doing the whole "What do you want to watch?" "I don't know. What do you want to watch?" routine.

For you, there's COUGAR'S EVE.

Cougar's Eve is a book about a robot jungle cat trying to make it in the big city. Just kidding! It's about a resort where older women hook up with younger men (and the pretty receptionist too, if they're lucky) on New Year's Eve.

If you're looking for a book to share New Year's Eve because your brother's hogging all the puzzle pieces, you can buy Cougar's Eve as an ebook or in print from such retailers as:

I hate myself a bit right now...

...and here's why:

I think I've been unconsciously downplaying the queer content in my books recently. That's not cool, and thus the self-hatred. But I know why I've been doing it, even if I've been doing it without meaning to do it. I keep getting subtle whispers in my ear that romance readers don't like bisexual women. Bad, bad, yucky, uncomfortable!

I've let those whispers get to me and it's impacted the way I market my books--but not anymore, baby! I'm here, I'm queer and you're used to it, but from now on I'll make a concerted effort to show the reading public my books are queer too.

If some readers don't like bisexual women, queer women, trans women, lesbian women or genderfucked assholes like me, they'd better steer clear of my writing. The end.

Cougar's Eve ebook cover
After that sickly sweet introduction, let me say: Cougar's Eve is a NYE novella about two middle-aged women attending a wild cougar party at a luxury resort (though one is very reluctant and there is some mild trickery involved in getting her there). Lori's all for this hooking-up-with-younger-men scene. Trish hasn't been with a man since her husband left her, and that was forever ago.

Maybe Trish will meet a special young man who will turn her world upside-down. Or maybe it'll be a special young woman. Or maybe it'll be two guys and Trish will be upside-down. Or maybe she'll have one guy behind her and a gorgeous girl working her front...

I'll leave it to your imagination.

Just kidding! Here are seven paragraphs of Trish being seduced by Raye the receptionist. 

Avert your eyes if you don't like bisexual women...

Spreading her shirt wide open, Raye traced her fingertips across Trish’s bare skin. Trish hadn’t been touched this way in so many years… so many, many, many years.

“This is a pretty bra,” Raye said, gently touching the borders. “Simple cream-coloured lace. It’s classic.”

“Thank you,” Trish replied.

“Can I take it off?”


With a sly smile, Raye said, “I want to look at your breasts. I want to see them naked.”

A blast of heat spread across Trish’s skin, but she said nothing.

Have A Poly Jolly Christmas with this #Spicy #Holiday #Romance!

This book not only has a new cover, but a new name. 

It was originally published in 2010 as ALL THE WAY. I really wanted a title that shouted "threesome!" from the rooftops, but nothing came to mind immediately.  Then, last week, my partner and I went to a neighbourhood carol-singing thingy in a nearby park. The first song on the roster was Holly Jolly Christmas. 

As I was falling asleep that night, it came to me: Poly Jolly Christmas! Perfect!

Finding the right cover image was another story. I spent days looking for the right stock photo.  I looked at a ton of Christmas-themed vectors too, because that look is very popular in romance and rom-com covers right now. But nothing.

The characters in this book are a Black woman, white man, and Asian man. I didn't even try looking for an image with that combination of individuals, because I figured I'd never find it. I thought I'd go with something subtly representative of the number three that also had to do with Christmas.

I spent hours looking at stock photos on Sunday. I was about to give up when the word "throuple" popped into my head--like couple, but three. So I searched that on a stock photo site where I have a lot of credits and only ONE image came up in the search results.

It was PERFECT. Kismet. I added some holly to make it Christmassy, and voila!

When Josie invites her high school sweetheart Kaz to stay over for the holidays, there are a few things she doesn't anticipate: Kaz admitting he's never been with a woman after all these years? That's a surprise. Her husband Rob's attempt to give Kaz a little training in the hot tub? A very sexy surprise! But after the married couple treats Kaz to the best nights of his life, who will he end up with when the holidays are through?

Delta's Diary Audio Now Available

DELTA'S DIARY from the Lesbian Diaries series is now available as a digitally-narrated audiobook.

Why did I create an AI-generated audiobook instead of narrating it myself? 

Well, I wanted to get an audio version to market as soon as I could because I know a lot of readers rely on audio. Not only is it way faster to get an audiobook to market this way, but the price-point is lower. 

I also find the AI versions cleaner than the audiobooks I produce myself, since there's no danger of hearing the bus going by my apartment building or my upstairs neighbours dropping things on the floor. (I try to create the cleanest audio possible when I do my own narration, but I know there's stuff I miss.)

Anyway, buy this audio version and enjoy! This book is close to my heart.

Delta's Diary
from the Lesbian Diary series
by Giselle Renarde

Can a big-city butch find community in a small town?

Delta's sunk about as far as she can go when she moves in with her brother. He's in the same boat: his wife just left him and he's down in the dumps. They don't do much to cheer each other up, but at least co-existence is peaceful.

When Delta crashes the town's Friday Night Queer Club, the girl she's got the hots for is not the one who wants her back. How she ends up with a girlfriend she doesn't even like is anyone's guess, but that's not the only thing ruining her chances with the femme of her dreams. Her crush claims to be straight, and she doesn't exactly ingratiate herself by doubting Melanie's word.

Even when you've hit rock bottom, you can always sink lower. If there's one thing Delta knows how to do, it's burn bridges.

How will Delta untangle the mess she's created when she's running on nothing but street-smarts and grit?
