Nice cover. I’ve liked all of Beverly’s books so far, here’s hoping she can keep her 100% record intact. You can purchase Irresistible here. The review will be posted as soon as I get round to reading it.

By the way, Stella Cameron’s got some interesting thoughts on erotica/literary pornography. I’m not sure what her point is, but I’m sure somebody will enlighten me at some point.

    Cameron’s post would have been more interesting -in my opinion- had the points not been so murky. I’m not sure what she was trying to say. At first read it sounds like she is bashing erotica/sex in general and perhaps entertains a certain jealousy of Anne Rice. But considering who she is, I can’t honestly think this is the case. I was just left saying “HUH?”

    Okay, so I read. I don’t know if Stella has a point really but the comments are fascinating and now I love Elizabeth Lowell even more.

    Um, to Cameron referring when she jumps from Ann Rice to the unnamed author with the too much makeup. Is the page I loaded missing some text? And then when she says

    “And I’ll stoutly announce that while one story of pornography/erotica (Why don’t we drop “erotica” which is meant to soften the idea of pornography? Be proud of whatever skill you practice.)–anyway, I’ll argue that there will always be different levels of brilliance in any art form, but an ass is an ass . . . isn’t it?”

    Is this another instance in which my page is missing text? Is she annoucing that erotica is an ass. Or that she’s wearing an ass? Or that the ass is choking her? So confused.

    Guys I must admit to being confused about what she was actually saying. I initially thought she was dissing erotica, but she kinda went off on a tangent, and I lost her after that.

    Jane, I did think she was trying to say that erotica sucks ass, but I’m still not sure.

    Beverly, don’t worry about it *g*

    Yeah, but what about that photo of Suzanne Simmons? The pose with the chair makes her look like she’s got the world’s biggest arse.

    Thanks for the link. Not that Stella’s post was great, but some of the comments were brilliant.

    Lol!! Wendy, I always thought her photo was the worst. Not flattering at all. She proabably doesn’t give a rats arse though, or else, she wouldn’t have put it out in the first place!

    So has anybody figured out what she was trying to say yet?

    I think when she said “an ass is an ass” she was trying to say porn is porn no matter which way it comes- literary or photographic. I LOVE Elizabeth Lowell’s response… “To me, pornography is visual, and aimed at a man’s crotch.

    Erotica is verbal, and aimed at a woman’s brain.”

    She rocks!

    I think she was knocking the erotica genre/authors. Kind of round about in her manner. Unfortunately, it is a commonview of some NY mainstream authors.

    On a sidenote, anything with sex to some is porn. Iturned in a few books to the library a few weeks ago (Angela Knight, etc.) They are no where in the computer system. Someone determined them too hot, I guess. I couldn’t be bothered to ask where they were. I can’t even donate to the public library a bit of steam without the disapproving look.

    I wonder how these authors who are so vocal on their blogs against erotic romances (hello, yes, ROMANCES) will act at RWA with many authors writing the genre. There are so many NY authors hiding under another name writing it….
