When I published

PORN STARS fall in love too 

with Samhain Publishing (now closed) …

the publisher insisted I rename the story Heart of Change to appeal to a larger demographic. I hated the title then, I hate the title more now! Because it symbolises all that’s wrong with America…

Prettying things up for “conservative America”… as if this story was in any way written toward that market. Fuck that. That America tries to steal the rights from and shame every individual under the LGBTQIAPK label. That America normalizes PREJUDICE, HATE, HOMOPHOBIA, MISOGYNY, CONVERSION THERAPY, RAPE CULTURE…

and to every bit of that America, I say, FUCK YOU.

I wrote the story to equalize Sex Workers as men and women who work hard for a living.

I wrote the story for every over forty woman who has ever questioned her sexual identity and decided to stand up and declare that her needs aren’t being met by being normal…

When I wrote  PORN STARS fall in love too it was never really targeted to the larger audience of erotic romance readers, but it received favorable reviews. Like the one by SALLY from Queer Magazine Online: who wrote,

“Deep and sorrowful, Heart of Change is an empowering read that is more about questions than it is about answers. It’s about questioning every aspect of your identity, and about finding the courage to look deep inside yourself, even when the answers you find aren’t necessarily the ones you were seeking. As the title suggest, it’s also a book about changes, the emotions that drive them, and the emotions they elicit in the reader.”

and…

 “For me, a significant part of the appeal in Heart of Change was the development of Simone’s sexuality. I thought her transition to bisexuality was handled very well, and I had no trouble accepting such a significant change in her lifestyle after 40+ years. I also appreciated the fact that the story ultimately led her to question whether she might really be a lesbian, as opposed to arbitrarily making some bold declaration. We may not be left with the happiest or tidiest of endings, and there are still questions remaining, but it’s a story that comes across as real. When you’re dealing with porn stars, lesbians, and a mid-life crisis, the fact that the characters and choices do come across as ‘real’ is a testament to Roxy’s talents as a storyteller.”

So to summaraize:

PORNSTARS, fall in love too has history… it’s been expanded and updated from it’s original release.

Please let me know if you Love It, or Hate It… I really love to hear from my readers!!!
