Nothing gets a reaction quite like comedy or porn. You watch it and you laugh or get turned on (or get turned off, for that matter). The relationship between audience and media is direct and instantaneous.
Erotic comedy is a great vehicle with which to frame a story. Sexy fun keeps the story entertaining so the reader can fall in deep enough to be captured by the world within.
I came across John Collier’s painting of Lilith, Adam’s wife before Eve. It was love at first sight. I had to know more about her. By reading Jewish folk tales, Rabbinical Midrash, and exploring Medieval and Renaissance iconography of Lilith in paintings, wood cuts, jewelry, and cathedral relief sculpture, different parts of her story came together.
Book One is Lilith’s origin story. Lilith was born in Eden on the same day as Adam, but Adam did not believe her to be his equal. She agreed. She knew she was much smarter than him. The first three chapters of Genesis from Lilith’s point of view makes many of the Bible’s mysteries clearer and, well, sexier: forbidden fruit, God gets involved, all hell breaks loose, demon sex, angel sex, Anunnaki lesbian sex… I did mention this is a porno book, right? Lilith is stricken from history for a reason. Her story got way too hot to make it into scripture.
Honestly, if you sexy people keep buying it, I’ll keep writing it! Book Two is coming soon enough and you’ll get more than you bargained for then, I promise.
For now, snuggle up on this winter Solstice night and enjoy Book One, Lilith: Queen of the Demons, available on Kindle.
