Hell In A Handbasket...
Jesus. Effing. Christ.
I was at Erecsite earlier today, when I came across the following comment by an author called Cheryl Anne Gardner:
"Good Luck to you in this. We need more publishers open to all kinds of sexuality and romance. My new one coming out in January has consentual rape, BDSM, and cutting and blood play ... and the darn thing is a romance as well."
Cutting and blood play?
Pardon me while I pass out.
