|The First One|
Still and all, some people are intrigued and end up purchasing my books. Their dogs’ lives were spared.
Recently, a nice couple expressed interest in my books.
“The first one,” I informed them, “won literary acclaim and awards and established me as a contemporary writer.”
Their eyes glazed over.
“The second one,” I said as Secrets & Seduction magically appeared, “won Best Erotica of 2015.”

“Who is Cheri Blossum?” asked the wife.
“My evil alter ego,” I responded. “It’s the Voltarian response to 50 Shades.” I toss that in for the upscale crowd.
“Cute,” said the husband. “Oh, look, that’s ADORABLE!” He pointed to the cover of eDating the Old School Way.
“It’s a parody of dating advice columnists for today’s internet scene,” I said. Sensing their lack of interest, I added, “The majority of readers are happily married couples.”
I knew without a doubt, well, because they clutched the copy of Secrets & Seduction that that was their book of choice.
The following day, I bumped into this couple with another man.
“I read your book last night,” he said.
The husband interjected, “He’s a fast reader.”
“Did you find it funny?” I asked, addressing the guy.
He responded, “Let’s say this: you wrote more about your broken Apple laptop than the sex scenes.”
That was a first! Most people marvel over the graphic sex scenes. Perhaps Secrets & Seduction is a litmus test of what people really do. Now, I wonder about that guy.
