The other day I received an a-mail from a woman in the UK who’d written just to tell me how much she’d enjoyed Men of Tokyo: Sudden Bliss.
She wrote: “Hi Sedonia Guillone,
I just finished reading Men of Tokyo: Sudden Bliss and I love it! It’s really a wonderful story and I can’t wait for the next two Men of Tokyo stories from TEB!”
I have to admit, it’s really nice to get great reviews from reviewers, after all, they’re readers too, but it’s especially gratifying when people out there who’ve bought one of my books was moved so much that she wrote to me to tell me she loved the book. Of course, I don’t write simply to get praise. I write because I LOVE writing, especially erotic romance, and extra especially, my White Tigers books. However, I know how much of my heart and soul I pour into each book and I’m always happy to know that my passion comes through.
AND finally, this book is available at Amazon US! Yay!!!!
I’m still waiting for Men of Phuket: Tongue-Thai’d to become available also. Of course, you will be informed when that happens. Hugs, Sedonia
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy writing M/F erotic romances, as you can see by the selection of I’ve done. However, for some reason, I’m in a phase where I just so much love writing M/M, the stories bubble up from inside me like Niagra Falls and I can’t rest until I’ve written them down.
Believe it or not, there was a time not long ago when I used to think, ‘Why would a woman want to write about two guys together? My dad is gay and I grew up in a gay male household. For me, it was an emotional button. But then, when I got into watching Six Feet Under on HBO, I started to change. I began to like the relationship between David and Keith. At first I was neutral during the scenes when the two guys were in bed together, kissing. And then, one day, it was like someone turned a switch. I was watching and I went, wow! that’s EROTIC! Shortly after that, I penned Danny’s Dragon, my first M/M, loved writing it and was like a racehorse let out of the gate. There was no stopping me! lol
Now I love writing in this genre and have found an audience who love these stories. I just began panning Barely Covered, a hot pre-quel to my Ellora’s Cave release, Barely Undercover. Of course, I will post a sneak peek VERY soon. I also have a new cover for the Fabulous Brits anthology coming out in late August from Total-E-Bound. That book contains Yin Yang, the next story in my White Tigers series. This is all so exciting for me. I’m so happy to share it all with you. Hugs, Sedonia
No, the picture of Jet Li is not the cover. I just love Jet Li and wanted to post a picture of him, lol. The career of an erotic romance writer requires much waiting at times. We can never have things happen just when we want them to. You have to wait for editors to get back to you, cover artists, etc. And then, once a book is edited and is put on the queue for release, you have to wait for release day. And then you have to wait for the reviews to trickle in. Patience is an important quality! lol So when one of these things happen, you get a feeling for a little while that this is actually happening. Such as the cover below for Secrets vol. 25, the Red Sage anthology my novella, “Enter the Hero” is in. Yay! I’m so excited and I think it’s really hot!
And then yesterday, I also got another awesome review for Men of Tokyo: Sudden Bliss from Novel Talk. I’ll just share with you the juicy bit:
Sedonia Guillone has written a beautiful love story. She does a wonderful job of bringing her characters to life and endearing them to the reader. Koji’s life is built upon his work, and he thinks that he is nothing without it. He never thinks of his own needs. Naoto has a troubled past where he blames himself for the death of his partner. The White Tiger offers Naoto a sanctuary where he can help others who are in need. Koji and Naoto’s relationship blossoms slowly, but there are many obstacles to overcome before they can think of happy ever after. SUDDEN BLISS is an excellent example of true romance. Now that I have had my first taste of Ms. Guillone’s writing, I am ready for my second and third helpings.
Listening to: Gackt
Recently watched: Pole to Pole with Michael Palin (incredible travel show from the BBC by one of the original Monty Python guys.)
Also recently watched: Foyle’s War on Masterpiece Mystery. My favorite detective series!
Thank you!! Hugs, Sedonia
Reviews trickle in more slowly these days because there are so many books to be reviewed! But they seem to come in bunches. Nothing for a long time and then several at once. lol. I received this one today for Gentle Warrior (Ellora’s Cave). I posted only the review part because the rest of the review is a summary of the story, complete with spoilers!
Here is the essence of the review:
Sexy, sweet, and a great read. Gentle Warrior is different from any book I’ve read, and that’s saying a lot. It’s a fast paced book with lots of danger, betrayal, love and very sexy nights. It’s gone with my keepers.
I was really happy to get Four Blue Ribbons for Heart of a Sorceress from Romance Junkies. I’m always appreciative when someone enjoys one of my books.
Here’s the basic essence of the review:
Sedonia Guillone can sure write some hot and tender love scenes, especially the very first one between Sha’ul and Lara where she becomes a woman in the elemental sense. Their passion for each other burns bright and I enjoyed how their love for each other was shown by their intimacy. HEART OF THE SORCERESS is one magical romance that should not be missed.
