Promo Redundancy Redundacy

In case you missed it, yesterday Will & I announced our contest while co-hosting the Phaze blog. We're accepting entries through next week ... so it's not too late to play along:

Announcing a great reason to buy Switch, the new Phaze HeatSheet from the twisted minds of Alessia Brio and Will Belegon! A reason in addition to the fact that if you don't buy it, you'll probably waste the time randomly clicking through MySpace pages about people you never wanted to get to know anyway. A reason in addition to the fact that it only costs $2. Face it; there are so many less interesting ways to spend two bucks!

What can you get for $2 anyway? Okay, you could get a box of Pop Tarts if you catch them on sale, and Pop Tarts can be pretty good, especially the brown sugar ones on a morning after... *ahem* But after you eat them, they're gone forever. Then all you have left for your money is the FDA nutritional information on the box. That's a pretty boring read. Even the tabloid drama of Britney and Kevin is more interesting than... Okay. Maybe not. But Switch is WAY sexier then Britney-Kevin or even Pop Tarts.

Switch continues the erotic adventures of Bruce & Mandy from Alessia Brio's Erotique. If you've read Erotique, you know that these two should be ready for almost anything, but in Switch even they are caught by surprise. It's not necessary to have read Erotique to understand and enjoy Switch. This story stands on it's own. But if you have already read it, you'll get a couple of extra laughs--and if you haven't, you'll certainly want to after reading Switch. (Erotique is yet another $2 bargain!)

So, what's this great reason to plunk down $2 and read our new HeatSheet? A contest! Yes, a contest blatantly copied from fellow Phaze author Jessie Verino. (We mention that because our lawyer said she probably wouldn't sue us if we gave her a free plug. Our lawyer said he was going to make sure of it, but we haven't heard from him in weeks. His machine said something about a chance to go hunting with the Vice President and that was the last contact.)

Anyway, here's what you gotta do... First, read the story. You can buy it by clicking on the banner above, and... Oh, wait. Okay, starting over. First, click on the banner above and use your credit card to buy Switch. (If you don't have a credit card, we'd be happy to accept payment via PayPal & handle the transaction for you, attaching your purchase to a return e-mail. Just drop Alessia an e-mail and we'll go from there!) Second, read the story. Third, answer the questions below. Fourth, e-mail your answers to Alessia or Will. Last, check out Will's Yahoo!Group on Saturday, May 6th (when we'll announce the winner).

Prize: The winner will have the choice of ONE of the following:

  1. A Phaze mug or mouse pad
    Shipped directly to the winner from Phaze's CafePress shop

  2. A pair of vibrating nipple clamps
    Shipped directly (and discreetly) to the winner from the vendor.

  3. A Coming Together multi-volume CD
    Contains 38 erotic short stories and 34 poems, many accompanied by original illustrations. This autographed CD features volumes 1-2 plus the special hurricane relief edition in PDF format. (Adobe Reader also included.)


  • What will Bruce accept in lieu of his attorney fee?

  • What does Bruce use to keep the grapes from rolling off Mandy's body?

  • What does Mandy tell Bruce to stop playing with?

  • What did Bruce & Mandy find "better post-coitus"?

  • What do "so many cultures" associate with storms?

Tie Breakers:

  • To what was Bruce referring in his last line of dialog in Switch?

  • From what type of stone was Erotique's Italian Renaissance diletto (dildo) carved?

Responses should be e-mailed to either Will or Alessia no later than Friday May 5, 2006 @ midnight Eastern (9pm Pacific). The winner will be announced on Saturday May 6, 2006 on Will's Yahoo!Group. Subscribe by visiting

Early Reviews

Author Lisa Bradley gives Switch 5 of 5 Stars:
It’s getting *hot* in here…A sequel to Alessia Brio’s 2005 Erotique, Bruce and Mandy are back with a bang-literally! There’s no way to say exactly what I mean without giving away the rather delicious secret twist that drives this story. Let’s just say that writing partner Will Belegon’s input is crucial. A must-read for a fascinating and sexy surprise!

Author Leigh Ellwood gives Switch 5 of 5 Stars:
What a wild ride for Mandy and Bruce! Switch is a truly hot story about passion that transcends reality and gender. You will definitely want to read more about this couple. Alessia and Will write so well together. Their mingled styles are seamless.

Author Jessie Verino gives Switch 4 of 5 Stars:
Mandy & Bruce are continuing their sexual exploration in this wildly electric story. The predicament these two find themselves in will make you laugh, then make you squirm.

Always a Bridesmaid *sigh*

Well, I didn't win a BWAHA ... or a 2006 Fruity Award from ERWI ... or either year-end nomination on Literotica this year (or last). It really is an honor to be nominated, though. Cliché, but true.

Here's another cliché: There's no such thing as bad publicity. (And such nominations are indeed "publicity." Free publicity, at that! *grin*)
