Today's episode of CBS Sunday Morning is featuring a segment about erotica/erotic romance.  Don't know if it will mention e-books or not, but definitely will discuss the genre as a whole.  (Brace yourself for the inevitable mentions of "you know which" book series.)

Show runs from 9-10:30 EST.

Desiree Holt is inspiring! 76 year old, Texas Hill Country, great grandmother with 140 EC titles (assuming all EC) since 2007. We should all have her work ethic and creative joie de vivre!

Although I wanted to turn that descendant of hers over my knee for a good spanking before sending her off into a room with two dark and brooding firemen for a hot threesome after she said "We support her, but don't read her..." -- uhm...no at 140 EC titles in the last 6+ years, more likely she's supporting them!

Go Desiree! :D

Desiree is on one of my selfpublishing email loops, so I knew this was happening last week. I'm thrilled for her!

She hasn't released any self-pub titles yet (I believe all of her work is currently with EC) so she didn't have any clue how many books she sold yesterday. She sent an email asking if anyone had a rough idea how many books she might have sold to go from a "7-digit-ranking" to under 100.

Yay for her!!!!

Agreed on all counts. :) I thought Desiree was lovely and intelligent and was fantastic on TV!

Thanks for sharing!  So funny.  Love her.  Want to be her when I grow up!
And oh, if only I were younger, thinner, taller, and prettier, how much fun would it be to be a romance cover model!

Desiree Holt was lovely, the interviewer was a condescending grape. Erotic romance, also known as mommy porn. Oh for crying out loud.  :-\

And called her the queen of porn, um erotic romance. Said with such snicker.

Yeah, her daughter is living nicely thanks to her mothers books she wont read. Must be nice.

Awesome! ;D

I feel like we need more interviews with erotic authors like that in mainstream media. And I loved her barbies. Maybe I should invest in a couple of my own. o.o

Congrats to Holt for being as successful as she is.  And by the way I don't blame her kids for not reading their mother's books.  I wouldn't either if it was my mother.  It's a personal choice, nothing wrong with that.

Also, I was vastly amused that she uses Barbie and Ken dolls (and another one) to work out her sex scene.  Too funny... she uses plastic, anatomically incorrect dolls to see what's "humanly" possible.

Also, I didn't notice any "condescension" with the interviewer.  Maybe his unfamiliarity with the subject made it come across that way.
