Classic Giselle: #Queer and Quirky #Erotica

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/786590?ref=GiselleRenardeErotica
For the past year or so, I've had this idea bouncing around my brain: an anthology of "Classic Giselle" erotica--stories I wrote at the very start of my career.

When I first started writing, there was only one person who believed in me: my grandma, of all people.  I love grandmas who are cool with sex stuff. I love that I've got one. I knew that, when I released my Classic Giselle anthology, it should somehow honour my grandma.

If you follow me on twitter, you probably know by now that my grandmother's been in hospital for nearly a month.

When she was admitted, she was delirious. She's got a number of infections and she's not doing great.

I don't know how things'll turn out in the end, but I decided now is the right time to honour my grandma with an anthology of classic erotica. It's actually a lot of fun. My grandma's pretty hilarious. She wouldn't want a book made in her honour to be all depressing.

So I've put together a collection of ten stories I wrote way back when, and that collection is called Classic Giselle: Queer and Quirky Erotica.

Thing is, I've also been reflecting on how much I appreciate my readers.  With Valentine's Day coming up, I figured this book would make a nice thank you gift.  So, from now until February 14 2018, the ebook is absolutely free at stores like Kobo, iTunes, Smashwords, BN and eXcitica.

After Valentine's Day, Classic Giselle will cost money. But, again in honour of my grandmother, I'll be donating all the royalties I earn from Classic Giselle throughout 2018 to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB).

When my grandma's vision began to decrease due to macular degeneration, the CNIB was there for her every step of the way. And when I say they were there, I mean RIGHT THERE. In her house. People came in to teach her how to adapt to her changing vision.

My grandmother is now legally blind. She's always been a gadget geek, and the CNIB introduced her to accessibility technologies that have proven invaluable in navigating the world. And even tricks like how to pour yourself a glass of water when you can't see the water. Or the glass. They've done so much for her, and this is my way of acknowledging their help and care.

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/786590?ref=GiselleRenardeEroticaClassic Giselle is a double-whammy thank you. No, I'm wrong. It's a triple threat thank you. It's a thank you to readers for actually, you know, reading my words. It's a thank you to my grandma for believing in me. And it's a thank you to the CNIB for helping my grandma over the years.

It's been an exhausting couple weeks, but I'm so pleased to be able to give you this book of strange and silly stories.  Free until Valentine's Day from the following ebook stores:

Kobo: https://www.kobo.com/ca/en/ebook/classic-giselle-queer-and-quirky-erotica
iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id1342513914

Being Bad: 3 #Erotic Stories of #Hot #Sex in Public Places

https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=3zhJDwAAQBAJ
This book was not a mistake. It was simply... unexpected.

A lot of my recent ebook releases have been unexpected, lately. I'll tell you how they came about.

See, I've been recording audio versions of lots of my erotica shorts. I started out recording them for my Audio Erotica Patreon, but I thought, hey, I've got all this content. Why not release little audiobooks now that I have access to ACX and other audio distribution sources? Brilliant!

But here's the thing: many of my erotica shorts are... well, just that: short. Recorded, the shorter ones are only ten or twenty minutes long.

No problem, thought I.  I'll package the shorter ones together, in threes. Three is such a great number for erotica, don't you think?

But once I'd created those audiobooks I thought... wait a minute... I can't upload these to ACX.

Why?

Because, in order to upload an audiobook via ACX, that book needs to be for sale at Amazon, either as an ebook or in print. To me, this is irritating. To Amazon, it makes perfect sense. They own everything, including ACX.

So that meant I needed to work backwards and create ebooks of my audiobooks, then upload the ebooks before I could upload the audiobooks!

Sometimes this job is very tiring.

Anyhoozle, I've been uploading these ebooks quietly in the background. I wasn't really thinking of them as books in their own rights, more like a means to an end. But, as it turns out, readers seem to be snapping up my little threesomes of stories. Who knew? Not I.  I can never predict what will sell and what won't.

Today I've been uploading a little jewel called Being Bad: 3 Erotic Stories of Hot Sex in Public Places. The stories in this collection are just little quickies, but they are steamy and sassy and I think you'll love them, if you haven't read them already.

Best part about this fast little read is that it's a cheapie, only $0.99 a most vendors!

The audiobook hasn't been released yet, but you can get the ebook at:

Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/784924?ref=GiselleRenardeErotica
Google: https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=3zhJDwAAQBAJ

Coming soon to more vendors (and as an audiobook)!

Listen to ANGRY, the new album from Too Attached

I'm having the kind of day where I can barely cope with life.

I've told you before that comedy saves me when I'm depressed, but when I'm in this state?  This beyond-depression "can't cope" state?  This is when I turn to music.

If it wasn't for music, I don't know where I'd be right now.

Because I'm having such a shitty day, I was particularly elated when I saw that CBC is streaming Angry, the new album from Too Attached, this week.

This album is queer, concise, and fierce.

And you know what else? CBC lets you embed their streaming thingy right on your own site. Which means you can listen to Angry right here at Donuts and Desires. But it's only available to stream until February 2nd 2018, so listen now!



Andrea Warner's write-up at CBC is insightful and you can read that here: http://www.cbcmusic.ca/first-plays/663/first-play-too-attached-angry

Angry releases February 1st 2018, and you can purchase it here: https://tooattached.bandcamp.com/album/angry

https://www.audible.com/pd/Erotica-Sexuality/Trying-on-My-Roommates-Panties-Audiobook/B0798TRMYY
Just a quick heads-up that my first-time lesbian story TRYING ON MY ROOMMATE'S PANTIES is now available as an audiobook. If you've got 25 minutes, I've got pussy-licking, two vibrators and anal play!

You can buy the audio version of TRYING ON MY ROOMMATE'S PANTIES at https://www.audible.com/pd/Erotica-Sexuality/Trying-on-My-Roommates-Panties-Audiobook/B0798TRMYY

OR

You can support me on Patreon, because TRYING ON MY ROOMMATE'S PANTIES is on the schedule for February 1st!

Ultimately, it is WAY cheaper to listen to my audio erotica through my Patreon than it is to buy expensive audiobooks. I hope you'll join me. If you love audio erotica, it's the place to be!

The Amazing Disappearing-Reappearing #Erotica

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is one of the few movies I still have on VHS. When it came out, it pretty much changed my life. I loved cartoons when I was a kid (I wanted to be an animator) and the idea that humans and cartoon characters could co-exist... well, that just blew my mind.

Why am I telling you this? Not really sure, to be honest. Oh! Right. It was the disappearing-reappearing ink.


See, I used a distributor called Pronoun to distribute a couple books to Amazon. Pronoun closed down recently. That means those books needed to be re-published.


They're disappearing-reappearing books!


Well, now that they've reappeared, I'll let you know where they can be found:


 

Giselle’s Best Adultery Erotica: 10 Tales of Forbidden Love

 

Love is complicated. Sometimes the most passionate love affairs take place with partners who are strictly forbidden. Infidelity can be driven by mutual attraction, money, desire, want of attention or even sheer hatred. In this collection, read Giselle Renarde’s top ten favourite tales of adultery, hand-picked by the author. Whether the sex is angry or loving, spontaneous or carefully planned, the characters all have one thing in common: they’re sleeping with someone they shouldn’t—and it’s hot as hell!
Take a Look at Giselle's Best Adultery Erotica at Amazon
And here are a couple $0.99 disappearing-reappearing new arrivals on Amazon's shelves:
