So, I was wondering how many erotic romance epublisher have a tarot project because they seem to be everywhere. Lets see:
* eXtasy Books' Tarot Series
* Ellora's Cave Torrid Tarot
* Tease Tarot Series
* Cobblestone Press's Vampire Oracle (a.k.a. Tarot)
* Tarot Card Anthology series (part 1-3) from Whiskey Creek Press
And that's just a quick Google. I am pretty sure there are a few more out there? Please do let me know of any I have missed.
Now what do I have against the tarot? Nothing. I like the tarot. I have several decks, have studied the meaning of the cards under many traditions and for one brief period supplemented my meagre undergraduate income by reading tarot in the back room of a family restaurant. I drew my own tarot, the picture up shown up in the corner of this post is from my hermit card. But a few brief glimpses of excerpts suggest to me that in many cases neither the writer nor editor know the tarot very well at all. I mean beyond just looking at the card and going with whatever they see there.
In either case, there must be some other themes out there? Anyone want to float some ideas for those fresh new e-publishers short on inspiration?
