June is #Pride Month!

It’s June, and that means Pride Month!

By now you know most of our books feature GLBT characters, so it’s no surprise that we’re all excited about Pride Month! We’ve been friends with author Beth Wylde for years and always look forward to the June events on her Yahoo Reader Group. She’ll be running special events almost every day for the entire month. Each Monday in June features one of the four GLBT  letters, and you can catch the whole schedule HERE. We’ll be participating with giveaways on the following dates – and here’s an extra contest, just for Newsletter subscribers: Catch me at one of Beth’s events and comment on something I’ve said, and you’re entered for your choice of a download from my backlist!

June 11 – L day. We have erotic stories in several lesbian anthologies  as well as one stand alone novella, so I’ll be at Beth’s to pimp those.

June 16 – Torquere Press, home to two of our lesbian pieces.

June 18 – B day. I can hardly wait – this is my personal fave, and with a new release coming out July 1st, I’m way pumped. Some special authors have already committed to join the party: Elizabeth Black, Louisa Bacio, Delilah Devlin and Giselle Renarde!

June 24 – Midnight Seductions. I’ve been part of this author group with Beth since a few of us founded it in 2007, and as always I’m excited about the range and quality of LGBT stories from members of our group.

Here are some of our GLBT books we’re especially proud of:

Sex Positivity

Consent, Pleasure, Well Being. The term Sex Positivity has been around for a while and can mean many different things to different people.

Lately I’ve been following blogger and Sex Educator Charlie Glickman, and I like his definition best of all. The only criteria for evaluating any sex act, he says, are consent, pleasure, and well being.

Being sex positive doesn’t mean that we love sex, or have lots of it, or think everyone should practice free love. In fact, it means we don’t judge what anyone else wants to practice – gay, straight, kinky, vanilla, monogamous, polyamorous or celibate – beyond those three cardinal parameters:

Is it consensual? Are all the parties adult, are they aware and informed about what they’re doing, and have they agreed? Is it pleasurable for the parties involved? Does it contribute to the well being of all who are involved? I am reminded of the Wiccan rede, An it harm none.

What does this have to do with the erotic romance my husband and I write? Right now, we’re polishing off another entry in our Swinging Games series at Extasy Books. In that series a married baby boomer couple have expanded their sexual practice to become part of the swing lifestyle. Being sex positive means we don’t judge them or their practice, so long as they agree it’s consensual, pleasurable and contributes to their well being. And, of course, we hope that reading about what they’re up to is consensual, pleasurable, and contributes to readers’ well being!

Swinging Games: Too Close for Comfort is due out from Extasy Books early this summer. Books One through Eight are available now at Extasy Books.
