The Perfect Blend: Coffee and Kane

EARLY PAPERBACK RELEASE!!!! Another Cup of Coffee Anyone??

YIPPEE!!!!!!  The paperback release of Another Cup of Coffee has been bought forward to 16th Sept in the UK, and 19th Sept in the US!!!

Although I have been writing for some time, and have had 16 solo erotic novels, anthologies and novellas published before, this novel feels like a major first for me!

I love writing as Kay, and the erotica world has been very kind to me- but I must confess to feeling quite different about Another Cup of Coffee– partly because the story is based on a decision I had to make once upon a time (I tell you about that another day if you are very good), and partly because of the marketing issue- it is just so easy to tell people about my new novel!!


When you write erotica, you are preaching to the converted- to a small group of the population who love the genre. With romance, on some level, there is always the chance your work will appeal to everybody.

I love writing erotica- and it is a genre I really believe in- but forget 50 Shades- I’m talking real erotica, which is full of well crafted, well thought out, sexy stories. Some are mysteries, some thrillers, some crime based, others romantic, some emotional journeys- just like in any other branch of fiction.

The thing is though, in erotica you have to second guess people all the time. You can’t just stick up a poster up in a café or library advertising erotica for fear of offending, you can’t drop it in to conversation with people you don’t know well for the same reason- everything you say has to be judged on instinct. And to be honest- I’m okay with that- it is difficult and often frustrating, but I really don’t want to offend people – although to be honest, I don’t think  actually would if people stopped to read some, rather than assume they know what it’s going to be like.

Anyway- that’s an argument for Kay’s site- today I’m simply enjoying how lovely it is to be able to say, ‘I’ve written a novel called Another Cup of Coffee, can I put up a poster, can I read in the library, can I launch it at a National Trust house….” and not have to wonder what response I’ll get! It is a very freeing feeling!!

So I’m raising a coffee to my first novel as Jenny- to all the lovely people who have bought it already, and the lovely reviews it’s already received- who knows, if I sell enough paperback and Kindle copies, I might get it in some bookshops!!


Thanks everyone,

Happy reading,

Jenny xx
