Monday Linkage

First: so many people forwarded me the link to today’s XKCD, I can’t possibly thank them all, but they are ALL awesome.

Porn for Women – and make sure you hold your mouse over the comic, too. Extra more win that way.

If you want more laughter, here’s a link courtesy of Gail Dayton, who was pretty sure we’d written about were-duck-erotica before.

Oh, yes, we did. it was a sad chapter in our history, when we were temporarily absorbed into the Dear Author Media Network.

But we had nothing to do with the creation of this book, Duck Fart, by Jade Buchanan.

This review, by Sidney, is rather marvelous:

:bent over laughing till my balls feel like falling off: I get the whole duck fart title now and I’m not telling. Read it for yourself to find out.

Now, I cannot read a book and laugh myself nutless, but if a book makes me laugh so hard my boobs fall off, you’ll be the first to know.

Another five star review states, “Throw together a timid siamese shifter, a twinky duck shifter with attitude, and a big, strong human and you get a fun read.”

Yes. That is exactly what I think when I put those three things together in my mind. Along with the thought that “twinky duck shifter” would make a GREAT name for a blog.

You can buy this book from Aspen Mountain Press and online from AllRomanceeBooks.

Yes, I’m buying a copy. Who knows if my breasts will fall off?


And finally: I’m over at the Harlequin blog this week talking about why romance is awesome in honor of National Women’s Month: Top 5 Ways Romance Novels are Important to Women’s Lives. My favorite part: “Romances celebrate women, and I can’t think of a more important reason to celebrate romances in return.”

    OK, the Porn for Women thing is possibly the funniest thing I have read all year.

    Duck Fart??? I have to check this out. Let me know if your boobs fall off, but no, I don’t want to see that. :)

    If you search “Porn for Women” under books on Amazon you can see a few pages from inside the book.  I have it and think it’s hilarious.  Pictures of hot guys with captions like
    “Oh, look, the NFL playoffs are today.  I bet there will be plenty of parking at the craft fair!”  There’s actually a whole series of Porn for Women books.

    I want to hear the Duck Fart review, too!

    I have a copy of “Porn for New Moms”, and I find it hilarious.  Hot guys are even hotter when they change diapers….

    And while I call the Webs and Knit Picks catalogs “yarn porn”, it’s probably a good thing that there isn’t any actual sex involved in those.  “Well, I was interested in that new alpaca/silk blend, but after seeing how it held up in those acts, I think I’d better use a stronger fiber.”  “Yeah, and the pilling with this merino?  If I wanted that texture against my bits, I’d have used ribbing for my pleasure.”

    That said, yep, the cartoon say

    I forwarded that cartoon everywhere I could think of and blogged it in my LJ account (

    Like I said on LJ, everything I’ve read from Harlequin and Silhouette and my personal acquaintance with female porn writers says the cartoon is not only 100% accurate (and the book is just for fun), but the ladies are a lot kinkier than I’ve ever hoped to be.

    Oh, man, Sarah, you had such a perfect opportunity to link to that duck porn I sent you, and you didn’t take it. ::sad::

    My geeky little heart is aflutter that there is so much overlap between XKCD and SBTB…it is my favorite comic ever, which is saying something since I’m old enough to have read both Calvin & Hobbes and The Far Side in the paper.

    Please review Duck Fart when you get a chance.  I admit I’m a bit dubious about the twinky duck/Siamese/burly human action.  I grew up on a farm and the whole poultry angle is rather offputting.
