We haven’t disappeared. There’s a thing called ‘real life’ that sometimes happens, and it means we don’t get a chance to keep up the blog. In our case the last few months have been a combination of work (i.e. writing projects that weren’t very erotic but paid the bills), and visiting ill people in the wider family.
However, last week we had an email asking if we knew Fulani has a bdsm story collection in the finalists’ list for the 2014 eFestival of Words Best of Independent eBook Awards. And no, we didn’t. Just because you’re nominated for an award doesn’t mean you get told about it.
‘Best Erotica’ category includes a nomination for The Museum of Deviant Desires, by Fulani (1001 Nights Press).
The eFestival of Words awards have categories ranging from children’s books to crime and self-help to science fiction/fantasy – and for erotica. See the full nominations list (lots of categories) on the eFestival of Words website.
Voting is now live, with the winner announced on 24 August. In order to vote you have to register with the website, but it’s free.
Meanwhile if you haven’t read The Museum of Deviant Desires it’s available from several places, including Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
We haven’t been very busy on the erotica front recently, but forthcoming attractions will include a steampunk erotic story in a soon-to-be-published Sweetmeats Press collection.
Have fun – and vote!
I was going to write another blog post today but then I had an email:
The following book has been nominated by The Romance Reviews reviewers for Best Book of 2011 in the following categories:
- Title – The Vampire Skye
- Author – Fulani
- Category – GLBT
- Sub Category – Paranormal Romance
Voting takes place here! http://www.theromancereviews.com/bookvote.php (Voters have to be logged in to The Romance Reviews).
Voting is from March 16 to March 31. Results would be announced on April 2.
It’s up against a strong field, so I’ll be grateful for every vote!
Meanwhile, the novella is available in the Amazon.co.uk Kindle shop, the Amazon.com Kindle shop, the Barnes & Noble Nook website and direct from the publishers, Xcite Books.
Velvet Tripp’s reaction? ‘The Romance Reviews? You mean Fulani, vampires and romance? That’s sick!’
Well, there is a bit of romance there in between lesbian BDSM vampire sex scenes, and the somewhat dystopian setting that involves the last throes of the sovereign debt crisis…
The email made my day, anyway. Hope yours is at least as good!
We’ve mentioned the ‘Seducing the Myth’ anthology before since Fulani has a story in it (here’s a list of places you can get hold of a copy).
And we’ve just been told it’s up for ‘Best Anthology Published in 2011’ in the Preditors and Editors poll. P&E is part of the Critters Workshop site, an online literary workshop that specialises in science fiction, horror and fantasy (including erotica).
If you’d like to vote for the collection that would be appreciated, because it’s up against stiff competition, and not just from other erotica because obviously the site includes horror, SF, and other kinds of fantasy (and you might even find some other interesting stuff to read there at the same time!). Voting’s been running since just before Christmas and closes in a couple of days.
