Speak Easy vs. Escapades

Since I’m lucky enough to have two books coming out this year, I thought I’d take a minute to compare and contrast the two books. First of all, the titles of the books are Speak Easy and Escapades. Speak Easy will be out in eBook format in April, with a hard cover release later, to be announced and I don’t have a publication date for Escapades yet, so stay tuned. Here are the covers for the books:EscapadesSpeakeasy cover

Aren’t the covers awesome? I love our graphic artist, Sheri!

So, what are these books about? Well, being that I am an erotic author, they both have erotic content but it’s very different in each book.

Escapades is the story of a player, Joey. Joey likes sex in different ways with different women. The book covers her escapades as she lives them, until she falls in love with Samantha. Now, the fact that she falls in love at all scares her, but the fact that the object of her love is pregnant terrifies her.

Samantha returns her love and their passion is documented in the story. Until something happens that makes Samantha pull away.

That’s all I’m going to tell you. You’ll have to read the book to find out the rest. Just know this book is a lot of sex and a lot of fun. It’s a romp, really. Enjoyable, to be sure. And I hope you’ll enjoy it.

The other book is Speak Easy. This is far and away my favorite book that I’ve written to date. Now, it has erotic content as well, but MOST of the sex in this book is between two committed women. Sure, there’s a little random sex, but it’s not like the chronicling of Joey’s life and times.

Speak Easy is about a mob boss, Helen Byrne, in 1920’s Chicago. I spent a lot of time researching the time and place for this book and I hope you’ll see that when you read it. I’ve included actual events and actual people. It’s true to its time period, so there is violence in it. Helen is trying to hold her own in the gang wars of the day, as well as trying to expand her own gang with as little death as possible. Tempers between the gangs always run high, but they escalate when Helen decides she wants the girl of Al Capone’s right hand man. And she’ll stop at nothing to get her.

So, now you know what to expect with each book. I hope you’ll pick them both up and enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for reading!
