So, I’m working on a new book. It’s a departure from the Apocalypto series, a little break. What do they call that refresher course in the middle of a marathon meal?
This story is called Give Me. It’s an erotic fairytale. Not erotic in the smexy sense, but erotic in the classical sense. It’s a tale of possession and reincarnation, of desire and obsession.
The cast of characters includes handsome and honorable Prince Galen, beautiful and kind Princess Diantha, the evil sorceress Lourdes — and her precocious little sister Elyse.
That’s Elyse on the cover.
Robin just sent me the cover. Again, she hits it out of the park. Makes me want to get the book finished pronto …
yep. another great cover!!
I love it!
Love the cover, but you already know I do 😉
My question is; can you explain to me what “erotic in the classical sense” means? I only relate it to the other kind 😉
That sounded a bit hoity-toity! I only mean in addition to being about physical, sexual desire (and satisfaction), Give Me is also about the consequences of desire itself. How does someone lost to the negativity of desire — obsession, compulsion, and loss of self — find the positive side, creation of new life, new ideas, and the awareness of self?
So I guess by “classical sense” I just mean in the sense of the Eros that is longing itself — longing for that man’s body, that woman’s power, that sister’s position.
