Selena Kitt in Salon: A self-published erotic novelist pioneers a new kind of porn

That’s right – I’m in Salon. I know, you’re jellin. :D

Thanks to Noah Berlatsky for writing the article – who knew you could find so many themes in “porn!”

Wait, if you can find themes, is it still porn? Maybe it’s it’s own thing now. Like a cross between women’s erotica and porn. Worn? No that’s not right. We’ll work on it. Because Mommy Porn is just silly. Although it does kind of fall into the themes Mr. Berlatsky talks about. Maybe it’s apropo after all!

Anyway, here’s the link: A Self-Published Erotic Novelist Pioneers a New Kind of Porn. Go read it. Great article! I can only take credit for writing the book, Babysitting the Baumgartners. (Now stupidly titled Sitting for the Baumgartners on Amazon. And without the original cover too. See this blog post for the reasons why Amazon is retarded. And reactionary. And retarded some more. And no, I don’t want to hear why it isn’t PC for me to call Amazon retarded. I can use that word if I want to – I can use ALL the words – I just, apparently, can’t use them all on Amazon. *sigh*)

Do you think they’ll let me back on Wikipedia, after they deleted me because there weren’t enough “relevant sources?”

Am I special enough NOW, Mommy? :D

    Where can we buy all of your books other than Amazon?

    I have all the Baumgartner books (and some of your others) and find them fascinating. It’s extremely interesting to me how well you write what some would call porn. But to me porn is completely plotless, while the books that you write are well written and have a decent plot to keep you interested. I would definitely classify them as erotica. The Salon article says that you estimate 80% of your readers are women. I think that this substantiates the quote (from Woodrow Wyatt) that says “A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears.” I equate the reading with falling in love through her ears. Oh, and I’m in the 20% (male).
    Please keep writing!
