akaivyleaf, I'm with you on this one...Zane is definitely making waves and others are trying to follow in her footsteps. I personally don't see her work as pornographic...and I don't have a problem with a character able to express themselves sexually (or a person for that matter). I've never been intimidated with my sexuality...perhaps this is why I like her work.
Another thing I like is that she has the ability to write outside of the box (I've seen some of her non-erotic pieces) as well as get across themes that I believe some people miss as they lose themselves in the erotic scenes.
And we won't talk about the business-woman side of Ms. Zane. She's absolutely BUSINESS-SAVVY, yet, she's always willing to help aspiring and newly published authors out.
As far as the title...I did think she was joking when she told our group, she definitely has guts, but what does that say about the industry? ROFL. I read the Sisters of APF back in January and with the exception of a few things that I simply don't condone, I thought the book was wonderful and my 4.5 rating holds still. Feel free to check out my review on Amazon or at:
Bottom line is that ZANE is a hot commodity and if you don't believe me check out the #85 sales rank slot she's holding on Amazon.com. I say, you go gurl, ^5, and hurry up with Nervous (my favorite of the bunch).
No, I don't consider her writing literary, but I'm a fan for life and will read everything she writes. I'll have to find the link to a short story that she wrote a few years back that was very touching and had NO sexual implications...
Oh, one more thing...pick up APF in the stores and check out the covers. I think it's cool how they have another cover underneath the dust jacket as I don't recall seeing this done before.
