Yes Virginia, piracy hurts epubs and ebook authors.

Once again, people are yelling that we should give away our ebooks for free and let "piracy" rule, and once again I step in and point out the realities of epublishing.

I think if I had a nickel for every person who didn't understand the ebook industry or how this sort of thing affects us, I could quit my day job and being a full time writer.

Boston is INSANE.

I went to work this morning to see people dressed like it was a combo between Halloween and Mardi Gras--minus the flashing of tits for beads.

One gal was wearing shamrock beads however--along with a green outfit and this huge felt hat that was shaped like a beer mug with fluffy white cotton on top to resemble foam. Written on the front was "Happy St Patrick's Day."


Over here it's apparently a citywide holiday. Some businesses will actually give the employees off--others take the day off. Some people will start going in and celebrating as early as the morning hours in order to get into the pubs and whatnot.

I think they're nuts. O_O I'm horribly Irish (my mom has like four names and her maiden name is an "O'" name), Some people get REALLY into this holiday, like above and beyond the call of duty.

Of course, being vegan I didn't get corned beef and cabbage for lunch. But I had a veggie burger and a side salad with a nice pinot noir--which the waitress managed to knock over and spill all over the counter, my pants, and my scarf. Thankfully both were black. :P

And that was my St Patrick's Day. Right now I am battling massive quantities of indigestion which I can only blame on nerves, lack of sleep, and Monday, so I will be taking something strong to combat it and head to bed early.

I loves you all.

Sexual politics

As a rule, I rarely blog about politics. But when sex enters the picture, it's difficult to leave the subject alone:

Details on the "sex scandal" regarding the governor of NY

News broadcasts are labeling this as a "sex scandal" and are harping on the "governor of NY was involved with a prostitute" issue when in reality there are more important issues here:

1) The governor had made it a policy to crack down on prostitution rings, making this a blatant act of hypocrisy

2) There is a question over his use of funds and how they were used in order to support his liasons with the prostitute

Personally, I don't care what consenting adults do behind closed doors, nor do I comprehend why sex is illegal if an exchange of money occurs in the process. My beef with this guy would be that he acted on this issue in one way in public and quite another in private. It makes me wonder why laws like this exist to begin with--I think that they hurt and benefit the wrong people.

The fact that the media is choosing to focus on the governor's involvement with the prostitute versus the governor was a hypocrite or that he may have misused finances in the process just speaks volumes of our culture.

Feel free to sound off on this one: what is your opinion of the "oldest profession in the world", and how do you like it portrayed, if at all, within erotic romance novels?

The pre-"I just left EPICon and here are my posts about it" post

I'm currently sitting in the airport with the joys of wifi, an outlet for my laptop's electrical cord, a glass of pinot gris, and lots of free time on my hands.

My plane does not start to board until 11:25pm DST. Yes folks, I'm coming back home on a red eye. I had a fabulous time at the con and I can't wait to go on and on about how much I loved it and everything I did love about it, and just...everything.

In the meantime, I've been working on putting a blog directly on my site. This is once again what happens when I have too much free time on my hands:

It's definitely a WIP and heavily under construction. I'm not so certain that I like all of the colors, et cetera, but it's good for now and I'll be crossposting to there and the "usual suspects" (Livejournal, MySpace, Insanejournal, Blogger, etc).

Adrianne is now blogging with the Sisters of the Dark Moon!

Like the other sisters, I write a good deal of dark erotica. The series of books that Blood of the Dark Moon is a part of focuses on vampires and their underworld, and I am working on another which focuses on the sidhe.

You may visit the Sisters of the Dark Moon and me here:

I'm thrilled to be a member of this blog team. They are a wonderful group of authors whose writings I've admired for some time now, and are just awesome people in general.

Love & Magic,

I'm chatting over at FallenAngelReviewChatters today! Get your blood-sugar-vampire-sex-magick there! :D

If you missed me over at Forbidden Fruit yesterday, now's your chance. :)

I'll be posting excerpts both naughty and nice from Blood of the Dark Moon and my WIP f/f vampire erotic romance novella Blood and Mint Chocolates, which takes place in the same universe as Blood of the Dark Moon and features some of its characters.

If you have the chance, stop by and see me there anytime today!
