EBUZZ: Bone Deep by Bonnie Dee



Bone Deep at Liquid Silver Books

I found this book over at Bam's Blog. The hero is the tattooed man in a carnival sideshow. Romance with tattooed carnival freak=Devon drops everything to buy and read.

I really enjoyed this book. It is the sweetest erotic romance I have read so far. It lacked that "bamp-chicka-wow-wow" vibe that others have (even if I considered the book to have a viable love story as well). Tom was a sweet, vulnerable character and I also liked Sarah, the war widow who takes him in. Tom was such a sad character, who lived such a stunted and difficult life, it could've taken on an inappropriate and creepy vibe (a la the vibe I get from Anita Blake and Nathaniel in recent LKH titles). But the author made Tom a strong character in his own right, that it was cool. Here's Bam's review. She wrote a great review, so why do the work again :)? Definitely recommended. I'll be looking into the author's other titles as well.

Next e-book I'll be getting, I also found at It's Not Chick Porn. Bam snarked this cover recently. It wasn't so much the cover as the blurb that had me rolling. Go read it. But the author's responses made me want to read it. She chose to use the word "schtupping" on purpose, I think. Oh, and I like books with demons. And I like the idea of Jewish demons who hopefully speak Yiddish. I won't be getting the one with the clown, though. Reminds me of a disturbing episode of "Little House" I saw when I was young.

I finally ventured forward an bought this one as one of my first evah ebooks 'cause it looks so interesting!!!

Wow! My little e-book is spreading slowly through the blogger community. I'm very happy.

FYI, you really can tattoo a penis! I looked it up online to be sure and saw some real photos of 'em. Yup.

The coolest thing about being published at Liquid Silver is the ability to have input on covers. April Martinez, the artist, showed me her first rendering and asked if I had any changes. I sent her the passage where Tom's tats are described in detail and she sent back the cover you see. Every tattoo as I described! I was thrilled.

Oh, the things that authors have to do for research. Hee! As much as I like tattoos, I will leave that to the imagination!! I really liked your book and will be checking out others. Good cover too, I have to say!!

April just posted at her blog a very interesting explanation of the process by which she created the cover art. See it here:
