From Thursday Bram comes this absolutely gobsmacking-badass article about how everything you need to know about strong copywriting comes from … wait for it… romance novels. It’s not about the sex; it’s about the pain, and overcoming it.
From SonomaLass comes this tale of stacked love: are you a Welsh single in Swansea? Then head to the library’s single’s evening to meet literary like-minded people, and judge them by what they’re browsing. I have to say, I wouldn’t wear a badge to announce I’m single and browsing for books and booty, but then, I’m squidgy about branding myself like that.
And finally: Erotica authors, take note: Ahoy! Thar be plot inspiration, mateys! Dan Filler from the Faculty Lounge blog emailed me about his review of a new nonfiction book by Charla Muller called 365 Nights of Intimacy, a memoir of her experience giving her husband 365 consecutive nights of sex for his 40th birthday.
