Today is the re-release of my first and favorite novel, Lotus Petals. This vampire romance tells the story of two women--the would-be bride of an undead daimyo, and his favorite human courtesan--discovering a connection with one another over any bond they've felt before.

I adore writing about women who love women. But what do you think when you hear the words lesbian erotica? For too many, it seems the answer is, "Not for me."
There is an unfortunate prevailing idea out there that lesbian erotica is only for lesbians, or for men looking for a literary version of Redtube girl-on-girl videos. I've heard so many opinions in the last few days alone, saying "Lesbian erotica just doesn't do anything for me."
This honestly breaks my heart a bit. Not because I'm an author of lesbian fiction...I write romance, erotica and genre fiction with characters of all sorts of orientation and sexual personality, so if my lesbian stories don't catch the reader's eye, perhaps one of my other romances will. What saddens me about this idea, that lesbian fiction is only for lesbians, is that so many readers miss out on truly gorgeous works.
