Fresh Linky Goodness--veinglory

Review: of 'The Jewel of Medina': "Is it worth risking your life for the sake of a bodice ripper?" [Time] (Um, yeah. Prejudice is a terrible thang)

Interview: “God wants us to be madly in love with our husbands,” wrote the anonymous women behind the site ["Christian Nymphos"]. “He wants us to keep that fire burning in our marriage beds.” [Telegraph] (Anonymously)

Preview: Trailers for Dark Castle Lord's movie debut. [Youtube] (no comment)

Free-view: free downloads from Midnight Moon Cafe.

...and Mrs Giggles: "if you have a story about a girl spending the weekend in some cottage having sex with five men, that's erotica. Pretending that she has "intense love" for all five men and have them marry her in a ceremony by the last page in order to make all that sex stuff "respectable" won't cut it." [blog] (hear, hear: except I work equally hard to establish that I think erotic romance, and erotica in general, is porn.)

LOLing at Fae

But my question is - well I have a lot of questions regarding that movie trailer - but I guess the big ones are:

Is this a movie based on one of their books? Or is this a separate entity all together? And lastly who pays for all of this? Is it the authors? The owners of the company?

I just don't get it

From what I know the movie doesn't have anything to do with the books. I think they got funding somehow for the movie...

I wanna know why it's all broken up into 10-40 second bits. Srsly. Um...okay there's other things I want to know but that's the one that doesn't include random baffled cussing.

I didn't know any nore about the movie after watching those clips than before. One of the trailers could have been, well, a trailer?

The writer of that so-called trailer won't be able to tell you either. No one knows. Not even the actors. I'd consider it as a mystery science fiction. Bad all around. If you did a reality show of the filming you might even add horror as its other category. I can't imagine anyone willing to produce that...no one in their right mind would. Just adding my 2 pennies.

Which is my major gripe with your position on the m/m genre. Erotic romance != porn. If there's romance, it's not porn.

That's not to say a lot of 'erotica' isn't porn, but a lot doesn't begin to fulfil the primary function of porn, which is to get people off.

But then I don't really write erotic romance. Stories with sex in them aren't automatically erotic, IMO.
