After we hooked up on Twitter, Cara Sutra, who runs a multi-award winning sex blog by the same name, offered me the chance to submit SHARING DANIEL and STORMY NIGHT to her Pleasure Panel (an ad-hoc group of independent reviewers) for review. I was both excited and a bit terrified; as I’m just starting out in the wild world of writing erotica, the last thing I wanted was to be told my writing was garbage that wouldn’t excite a sheep. On the other hand, as a writer, if you don’t put your work out into the world for scrutiny, no one will ever really find you.
So, I took the plunge and sent Cara e-copies of both books. I told her that if they got panned, I’d have to toss a load of sex toys and chocolate into a false-bottomed suitcase and flee to a convent. I hoped that the reviewer(s) weren’t totally disappointed, but I couldn’t help but bite my nails.
This morning I read the first review, written by Eliza93Marie on SHARING DANIEL: she loved it!
This short erotica story is truly wonderful! Amazingly written and had my panties soaked. Sharing Daniel by Jade Stratton is a great read by an awesome author! I want all of this! This is my husband’s ultimate fantasy and mine as well! I’m so thankful to Cara for letting me review this awesome short story! I give this story a 10/10, I want more… Give. Me. More!!

I haven’t heard back yet on how STORMY NIGHT fared, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the Pleasure Panel will also enjoy it. In the meantime, I guess I’d better get back to working on the next story! XOXO
