Where to Find Me!

I’m so many places today I can’t tell if I’m coming or going (pun is probably intended :)). Four different places, and I’ve got three different contests going, so you have lots of chances to win books and prizes!

First, I just have to SQUEEEE!!! about The Reunion, which is #FREE today through Thursday at Amazon, and has climbed to #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Erotica!

So: Finding Adriana…

First, the fabulous Tenth Anniversary party is in full swing, over at the TRS Party Room, where I just blogged about the choices Sarah must make over and over as Adam increases his demands. That contest runs through Saturday and I’m giving away one rainbow candle and one free download from my single author titles.

Next, I’m on tour all week for The Reunion, and today I have TWO tour stops!  The tour contest is another set of those same prizes – a rainbow candle and one free download. Come catch me today at Books Books & More Books and Fallen Angel Reviews – comment to enter, plus there are optional entries for tweeting, liking my facebook page and following me on Twitter. I’ve listed all the tour stops at the bottom of this post.

Contest #3 is going on all week at The Romance Reviews Fall Into Romance bloghop. This giveaway is one download of the marvelous lesbian romance Waking Up Gray, by RE Bradshaw, plus one download from my book list, and the LINK is right here on my blog, where you can also link to all the other stops on the hop, with over a hundred authors and prizes.

My Sexy Saturday ~ The Lady Wants More

Our upcoming indie release, The Lady Wants More, is a lesbian short story we’re re-releasing this coming autumn, following the return of our rights.  Here are seven sexy sentences to get things flowing…

EXCERPT

“Maybe we should’ve done this before dessert.” Brenda rested a palm on Janet’s pubic bone and splayed her fingers.

Janet could feel herself opening even more.

“So pink and steamy. This will be the treat of the night.”

Janet leaned back until she felt the coolness of the window, but that did nothing to quell the heat pouring from her body—from her head, from her nipples, and especially, oh so especially, from her core. She curled her fingers around Brenda’s ears, encouraging Brenda to explore, to take her time—no, to hurry.

BLURB

Mix Cancer with Aquarius? Like oil and water – but when levelheaded Janet Baxter re-connects with free spirited Brenda Cassidy, the lady knows she wants more!

The Lady Wants More: Janet Baxter keeps her post-divorce life neatly compartmentalized: Secure job, spacious Westchester County home, successful adult children, dependable community volunteer activities. Why is she drawn – for the first time ever – to attend her twenty-year college reunion in New York City?

Always a free spirit, Brenda Cassidy is comfortably bisexual and has no plans to ever settle down. But a fling? The reappearance of svelte, reserved Janet Baxter in Brenda’s life is nothing less than a gift, worthy of every enticement Brenda can conjure up. Can Brenda seduce Janet into an endless night of the lovemaking they enjoyed too briefly as college roommates? What if the lady wants more?

Writing #GLBTQ Literature

Welcome to the Rainbow Book Reviews Blog Hop! Be sure to click on the graphic to link to the rest of the participants. Lots of fabulous prizes – leave a comment to enter, for ours as well as all the grand prizes. We’re offering one free download, reader’s choice, from our published books.

What does writing GLBTQ literature mean to us? We’re a married couple writing erotic romance together under our pen name, Adriana Kraft. We’re also proud parents of a gay son, members of our local PFLAG chapter, and social activists who’ve supported causes we believe in across more decades than we necessarily want to count.

Nearly three and a half years ago, we stood with other supporters on the steps of our local county Courthouse on an April afternoon awaiting word on the Iowa Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision. We were prepared to stand for our values whichever way the decision went – and we were thrilled with the outcome (and blogged about it, HERE). I don’t think we can say it better than one of us told a reporter that afternoon: “Love is love, and every couple deserves a happy ending.”

So that’s one major reason we write what we write: to celebrate love wherever it can be found, and to share with the world our belief that all persons, whatever their sexual orientation, deserve equality under the law when they form a love relationship.

There’s more of course – we do write erotic romance, after all, and our tag line is Erotic Romance for Two, Three, or More. There are so many varieties and combinations under the rainbow banner. We’re especially partial to scenes and stories that feature two women together, whether lesbian or bisexual. Our short stories and novels explore what’s possible for women (well, and the occasional man) who can’t fit themselves neatly into the box labeled “straight.” Sometimes their foray into same sex relationships turns out to be a small part of coming into their own sexually, as in Mistress of Purgatory Point. More often, same sex erotic encounters become more central for them, and they find a range of solutions for ongoing expression of their entire spectrum of sexuality. We write a world where three- and even four-way committed relationships are not only possible but welcomed.

We hope you’ll leave us a comment on why GLBTQ literature matters to you, and what your favorite pairings are. We’ll pull a winner by random number Monday morning, August 27. Good luck!
