Selling Sex in a Recession: Erotica - 8/3/2009 - Publishers Weekly

Selling Sex in a Recession: Erotica - 8/3/2009 - Publishers Weekly: "But digital versions of erotica aren't the only new thing between the sheets. Cleis and Viva Editions has just formed a new partnership with ReadHowYouWant to release a number of titles in large print, Braille and DAISY—a digital talking book format targeting people with disabilities—later this year. “We are extremely excited to be able to provide erotica books to the visually impaired for the first time,” says Knight."


PW has done a major article on erotica publishing and includes a mention of ReadHowYouWant's work with Cleis. The large print editions should provide a powerful way for indie stores to add more to their communities.

Charles Benoit

#1 of 150 Poisoned Pen Press Large Print Mysteries coming soon!

“Benoit’s smashingly good, action-packed first novel…contrasts the modern features of North Africa and Asia with the remnants of their ancient pasts. Two murderous chases through urban and rural Egypt build to a resolution that remains well concealed until the final pages…”

Publishers Weekly

“Where has Benoit been hiding? With a debut novel this good, it's hard to believe he hasn't published at least 10 previous books. Every element of this rollicking adventure shines, from its suspenseful, globetrotting plot to its nicely rounded characters...” ­­— Booklist
