Annals of Fetishism: Another Entry in the Diary of a Shy P0rn0gr@ph#r

The cage at Wicked Grounds Kink Cafe and Boutique turned out to be not much. More like one of those pieces of garage-sale furniture you kind of negotiate around in a coffee house than fetish object. At least to me; I wouldn’t have noticed it if I weren’t looking for it. But the group joining … Continue reading Annals of Fetishism: Another Entry in the Diary of a Shy P0rn0gr@ph#r

How I Came to write Carrie’s Story: the condensed version

What do you do if you’re a little confused by the turns your erotic fantasy life is taking? This is what I told Wallace Baine, art editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel yesterday. I decided to write it all down and see if it came out as evil. It didn’t. It came out as funny. … Continue reading How I Came to write Carrie’s Story: the condensed version

See Ya, Hon, at the Baltimore Book Festival

Hon being Baltimorese for honey, sweetie, sweetheart, whatever… said by a really sweet waitress with big hair. Think John Waters. And then think a panel discussion called Fifty Shades of Hot! Erotic Taboos in Fiction, to be held at the Baltimore Book Festival on Saturday, September 29. Where I’ll be speaking (both as Pam Rosenthal … Continue reading See Ya, Hon, at the Baltimore Book Festival

A Confession. A Resolution. And a Rant.

First the confession. That I’ve gone a little gaga over a recent modest spike in Carrie’s Story‘s Kindle sales. Have I been getting a little 50 Shades of Grey action for my own smart-girl-meets-moody-older-guy BDSM, w/a Molly Weatherfield, and going amazingly strong for a small-press book first published in 1995? Maybe. But since checking out … Continue reading A Confession. A Resolution. And a Rant.

To Share…

Rereading one of my alltime favorite novels, Richard Powers’ Galatea 2.2. When this excerpt, one of the most romantically wonky I can imagine, stopped me dead in my tracks. We caught eyes. We looked for longer than either thought we should. For moment, looking felt like something that happened to you rather than something you … Continue reading To Share…

Molly and Me… a new contest soon

I was thrilled and flattered last April when an online discussion of my erotic novel Carrie’s Story (w/a Molly Weatherfield) attracted 345 posts. Not bad, I’d have to say, for a book that was first published in 1995 (and which I would never have dreamed would still be in its 16th printing as I write … Continue reading Molly and Me… a new contest soon

More on Other People’s Books

Adding a link to a book review I published last summer in the online Journal of Popular Romance Studies. The book’s called A Vindication of Love: Reclaiming Romance for the Twenty-First Century. The author’s Cristina Nehring. Needless to say, Nehring never once mentions the popular romance genre or its not-too-shabbily sized readership. But there are … Continue reading More on Other People’s Books
