Harper Bliss writes naughty stories. Now we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk business. Harper is the reason why we’re having a summer of erotica at LadyLit*. She keeps churning out the dirty stories and, in fact, her latest e-book Summer Heat was just released on Wednesday. (If you haven’t done so yet, pick up your free copy before Sunday when the free promotion ends.)
Summer Heat tells the story of Cat, who, after being dumped by her girlfriend right before their holiday, decides to join her parents on their annual trip to Tuscany. Prepared for two weeks of sun-drenched melancholy, she finds much more than nostalgia in the house where she used to spend her summers as a child.
Unable to let the characters go, Harper decided to write the story again, only this time, from the point of view of Rose, Cat’s cougar love interest. (Hm, perhaps we should have called the book Cats & Cougars.) This second story doesn’t have a definite release date yet, but it does already have a cover (and a title). Ta-dah!
We’re aiming for publication in the second week of September. We’ll also be putting them together in a special edition e-book, alongside another short story featuring the two characters. (She really can’t get enough of them.)
Harper’s stories all feature lesbian lovers and quite a few explicit sex scenes. There’s an encounter with a high-end escort in Hired Help, a threesome in The Honeymoon, a teacher crush in Learning Curve and all of that bundled together in A Hotter State. You can also read some of her stories for free on her website if you want to know what you’re letting yourself in for. (And there are PDF previews available of all her e-books here.)
Over the weekend Harper is participating in the Follow the Rainbow Book Reviews Blog Hop and you can win a free copy of A Hotter State. She also likes to blog about all the things that inspire her on her website.
So far for our introduction to our resident erotica writer Harper Bliss. She has some hot stuff out there already, and we’ll be seeing regular releases of her new books throughout the year. Enjoy.
* We have other, less saucy projects in the works. By the end of the year we should have a new Lee Harlem Robinson novella out. And in 2013 we’ll publish a brand new LGBT novel set in Hong Kong.
