Taboo!


No, it’s not a book, it’s a trade show. What trade, you might ask? Well, you can bet I was wondering when I agreed, along with fellow authors Sasha White and Vivi Anna, to participate in “Taboo, the naughty but nice sex show.” And in November I found out! Imagine a convention centre with maybe 100 booths - more than half of them selling sex toys and/or sexy corsets and lingerie. Imagine three hunky firefighters selling firefighter calendars. Pole dancer exhibitions, burlesque and -- oh yes, male exotic dancers! Yup, this show was hot. Right, Sasha and Vivi?

Chapters, the big Canadian chain store, sponsored booths in both Calgary and Edmonton, and we got to be the featured fiction writers. Yeah, okay, the Kama Sutra, tantric sex and “365 Positions” sold better than we did, but all the same, it was a blast. So were the seminars we did on “Writing Hot for Fun or Profit.”

Guess what was the most-asked question? “Can you really buy these books in the store?” Yup, you sure can! And we authors would really like it if you did. So, I think we did some good promo not only for our own books but for erotic romance and erotica in general. And you know what, it really was fun!
