Sorry, gang -- and a huge apology to my publisher -- but I was not aware that this eBook was out now and available for sale!!
Apparently, it has been out for a while already... Really sorry about this delay in announcing it.
I am talking about the first complete eBook edition of my 1999 "modern erotic classic" Neptune & Surf! It is available through Kindle only. The price is $5.99.
Here's the blurb:
Upon its publication in 1999, Neptune & Surf launched an international career for award-winning erotica writer, Marilyn Jaye Lewis. This trio of explicit novellas captures the unique character of love and sex in America in three different eras of its history: “Neptune & Surf” is a story of forbidden interracial sex in New York’s infamous Coney Island in 1955; “The Mercy Cure” is a modern day look at obsessive sex among de-frocked lesbian nuns; the infamous “Gianni’s Girl” depicts a haunting gangbang among Chicago’s bootleggers in 1927.
Here are some of the reviews of Neptune & Surf that appeared in the press back in 1999:
“...reads like a hardcore version of Scorsese’s Goodfellas...with wit, insight and
imagination, Lewis deftly erases the line between ‘erotica’ and ‘literature.’”—Ian
Grey, author of Sex, Stupidity & Greed: Inside the American Movie Industry
“The striking debut of a new American erotic author in the tradition of Anais Nin.
Three very different novellas explore the complex nature of female sexuality and all
supply very different answers....this is both steamy and disturbing.” —BOL.com
Europe’s Essential Erotic Library
“Three highly explicit novellas about a mixed bag of constantly copulating
characters....Lewis somehow manages to turn these torrid tales into lyrically
romantic stories. Quite a trick.” —Desire Magazine (UK)
“...A well-written, plot-driven compilation of erotica....Loads of hot sex and good
writing—what more could you need? (Rating: 4 Lips)—On Our Backs
“The sexuality in Neptune & Surf is explicit and to-the-point...I can’t help thinking
of Sergio Leone’s Once Upon A Time in America...”—American Book Review
“Neptune & Surf is one of the best new books of erotica I’ve read so far this
year...from one of the best talents in erotica today.”—Venusorvixen.com
“Crisply written, with great attention to detail. Marilyn Jaye Lewis is an author of
great talent.”— Erotica Readers Association
“...the sensational debut of new erotic writer Marilyn Jaye Lewis bring(s) an
unmistakable feminine perspective to matters of the flesh, these pages take literate
erotica well beyond the boundaries once staked by Story of O...”—The Guardian,
London, Essential Summer Books
“Vividly written, these stories rise above the routine of erotica to establish the author
as a stylist worth watching.”—G21: The World’s Magazine
“Marilyn’s characters spring to life in a way that makes the reader care about
them...one of those rare books you don’t want to put down once you start
“Lewis uses eroticism as a provocateur, a catalyst that not only stimulates the reader
erotically, but acts as a wake-up call.”—BNI
“(Neptune & Surf) is well-written and sure to put some fuel in your fantasies...This
book is great before bedtime...men will enjoy the reaction women get from reading
it.” —Fright X Magazine
Here are some reader reviews from back then:
"Marilyn Jaye Lewis is one of my all-time favorite erotica writers. It is obvious she puts careful thought into each word she chooses. Be aware-this book isn't smut-it's definitely erotic literature! Discerning minds will be very pleased with the purchase. I'm so thrilled to see a full book of only her work! In general, her stories are jewels in whatever collection they are found in. "
"Simply put, this is a wonderful, beautiful book. Marilyn Jaye Lewis is a superb writer and a brilliant storyteller. Yes, there's sex, erotica, but more importantly she knows how to use the language to evoke and mesmerize. Buy this book, you won't be disappointed!"
"I adored this book. Marilyn Jaye Lewis is a first rate erotic writer. I read it more than once, bought copies to give to friends. Her characters are so human, their stories so well developed, and the eroticism is...well, truly erotic. Everyone who appreciates erotic literature should read this book and everything else Lewis writes. She's the best of the best."
