I talked a few weeks back about whether funny could be sexy, even erotic when it comes to writing.
And I discovered it can. Well, the fruits of my labor and experiment has paid off in the form of two anthologies being published by Ellora’s Cave in February.
Nine of us got together (Including new Silken Sheets Member A.M. Griffin) and we wrote funny erotic. We all love the genre so much and we decided to play with some of the well known tropes in the industry.
Mine happens to have a mute werewolf who gets headbutted in the junk, but man can he deliver sexually. 😉
And it’s up for preorder too!
The virgin whose carefully planned hymen removal doesn’t work out the way all the romance novels told her it would. A busty broad doing what she can to get over her penis anxiety—assisted by a cadre of male strippers. A not-so-bright (and not so “big”) alien who comes to claim his life mate, and the Earth girl who wants to be claimed at all costs. A cursed, mute shapeshifter who needs to pop his cherry with his unsuspecting fated mate.
If you’re looking for the perfect romance with the perfect hero and heroine, this isn’t it! This is a series of spoofs, parodies, just-for-fun lighthearted take-offs. It’s for all us longtime, hard-core romance readers who can laugh at the clichés, purple prose and “suspend your disbelief” plot devices that haunt our beloved favorite genre.
So funny can be sexy, because I know for me one of the sexiest things about a man’s personality is his ability to make me laugh.
