Welcome to my little corner of the gay erotic romance universe . . . well, half of it, anyway. (You can find the other half at RachelHaimowitz.com.) This is the place to come for sneak previews of new projects, release information, and the occasional M/M book review. I'll also share thoughts on the industry on occasion, and I hope you'll come share yours in return.

Strange Days and Sneak Peeks

Sometimes it really strikes me what a wonderfully strange life I have. I think this is part and parcel of being a writer, but some writers are definitely weirder than others.

For instance, I've just spent the last several hours making "supplemental" materials for the Belonging 'verse (the alternate universe in which Anchored: Belonging Book One takes place) for the upcoming Release Party Blog Tour. Weird, weird material. Like ten classified ads for slaves for sale--a feature that will appear on the Coffee Time Romance blog on January 19. And a newspaper ad for a jeweler who sells high-class slave cuffs for expensive slaves (thanks to my GPP editor Tal for doing the dirty work on that one!). Thirty minutes spent sifting through stock photos of women wearing bracelets? Sure, why not; it beats editing ;-) Now I'm debating a night-school course list for owners willing to pay for their slaves to pick up new skills.

EDIT: Speaking of newspaper ads, here's Tal's now.

Because really, you wouldn't dress your half-million-dollar pleasure slave in rags, would you?

I also had the pleasure of slipping on my Daniel hat today--Daniel is the slave star of Anchored--and answering some probing questions about his life for a character interview that will appear on Desert Island Keepers on January 22. Alas, the "Boxers or briefs?" crowd will remain in the dark, but you'll definitely be learning some interesting things about Daniel's past, in his own words.

More blog tour craziness coming soon, folks. Be sure to check back often for the Most Fun You'll Ever Have with Real Slavery. (Wow, too tacky?) And, ooh, speaking of checking back, did you guys notice that pretty new box in the upper right corner? The one that says "Subscribe via email?" Isn't it shiny? :-)


  1. This sounds so friggin' cool! Can't wait to check it out!


  2. LOLOL, I LOVE THAT PIC!!!!! That is awesome! The whole classifieds/ads thing is so cool.

  3. I'm hoping to sucker my graphically-inclined friends into making many, many more. Here's my first attempt at an actual ad campaign IRL: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NobleRomancePublishing/message/6274

  4. That ad is gorgeous! I love that concept Rachel! This sounds very interesting.....

  5. Amara, I need your proper blog link for my blogroll, the other one isn't working anymore. *sigh*

  6. Thanks kindly, Jennifer! I'm having a lot of fun playing with concepts for more ads, and you'll be seeing at least a few more when the blog tour stops at L.C. Chase's blog :D

  7. Also, Amara's blog link is working in my blog roll (I think). Try this: http://amaras-place.blogspot.com/

  8. What a great concept. Really creative. :)
