LANCELOT

Carnal Desires Publishing put LANCELOT up on the website at:

http://www.carnaldesirespublishing.com/single.php?ISBN=1-55404-640-8

You can let me know what you think of the cover and blurb. LANCELOT is an erotic paranormal so if such books offend, best not go there. It is a fun adventure story though too. :)

Congrats Bernard--or should that be Lee? ;) I would've never guessed that story was going in an erotic direction when I read those few scenes.

A guy with his sword at the ready.
Alright then! ;)

I like the cover, Bernard--and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
(I do remember wanting to smack young Arthur around a little, lol).

It is mainly an adventure/paranormal, Jordan. At over 90,000 words, it contains much more than the erotic aspect. The editor was extremely nice to me, and I will be utilizing what I learned from her on everything in the future.

I really enjoyed writing the smartass young Arthur's interactions with the rest of my cast, Raine. The initial meeting I put on the blog makes me laugh every time I read it. If I had considered the YA aspect Jordan thought of when reading the blog entry, LANCELOT could have went in that direction easily. The whole novel was written by that time though. :)

Next time. ;)

Very nice. Congratulations. I like a good sword epic. I hope there are lots of fights.

BernardL said...

It's loaded with action, Charles. :)

Vesper said...

Huge congratulations, Lee! :-)
I'll take a look at it.

Bernard Lee DeLeo said...

Thanks, Vesper. LANCELOT is more paranormal adventure than erotic romance, but there are parts which rate an adults only tag. :)

Bernard, that sounds like a fun book. Looking forward to reading it.

I have two comments about the cover: Lancelot (I assume that's the guy on the front) looks a bit like Jesus, and I didn't really like the sword cutting off part of his head.

In the thumbnail, I couldn't tell what it was. It just looked like a color bar above his head.

Thanks Beth. I wasn't in a position to pick or okay a cover. After seeing what some other writers ended up with for cover art, I'm probably lucky. I appreciate your critique of the cover. I thought much the same thing when I saw it. :)

Well... you want me to be honest don't you?

I liked the blurb and thought the story sounded really interesting apart from the "highly erotic" stuff LOL

Our folklore in Lancashire recalls that Lancashire actually means Lancelots Spear and it is here he came to settle following the downfall of Camelot. While only a few miles away at Alderley Edge in Cheshire Arthur and his knights are sleeping ready to serve us in our greatest hour some time in the future.

I'm prepared to forgive you for taking our hero and giving him American citizenship although don't be surprised if I return the favour some day and write the further adventures of George Washington the Cockney Pimp and his sidekick Marilyn Monroe the transvestite hooker...

All joking aside - sincere congratulations and I wish you great success with this as well as your other ventures!

BernardL said...

I apologize, Miladysa. :) Lancelot was my favorite knight of all time, and I never liked his ending. I decided to write a novel where he didn't end. It is first and foremost an adventure where Lancelot turns the legend on its head in modern times. If you use George Washington as heroically as I used Lancelot, I have no problem with it. :)

Thanks for being a good sport :D

Thanks for all your great comments, Miladysa. :)
