Book Cover Art and Opposite Genders

EThis week we tackle a couple of interesting topics: 1. A reader wrote in asking us to critique his cover of “Janko’s Gym”and discuss whether or not we like drawings or photos for our covers. We decided that he was very talented, but the drawing was probablyinappropriate for an erotica. We liked his book though. 2. Another reader phoned in a question asking how we write from the opposite sex or gender’s point of view. 3. We introduce our plan for an erotica REVIEW podcast. Details will be coming soon, contact us if you’d like your book to be reviewed on the show.
