On Twitter:

Chris Hallquist @UncredeibleHalq: .@GretaChristina Bending is a great novella. I just hope I don’t get *too* distracted while trying to work on other things!

Rachel Kramer Bussel @raquelita: New @GretaChristina #erotica #ebook Bending is out & it’s HOT! I’m a fan. Creative & very kinky.

Adele Haze @AdeleHaze: Check out @GretaChristina’s collection of erotica, everyone. I read it, and it made me wank on the tube. Just sayin.

PZ Myers @PZMyers: Bought it. Read first page. Scared me into closing it. Will have to screw up courage.

Jo Alabaster @joalabaster: I popped my ebook cherry tonight and bought @GretaChristina’s latest. Oh my goodness, can she write.

WilloNyx @WilloNyx: Just read the intro to @GretaChristina ‘s new book “Bending” this is gonna be good. Think @VeronicaDire should check it out.

Matt Bunyan @mtbunyan: Just read the first story in @GretaChristina’s new book. It’s suddenly got rather hot in here…

WilloNyx @WilloNyx: Not saying I needed to stop for a sex break a few chapters into Bending by @GretaChristina but yeah I kinda needed that.

Jessica Lloyd @jlloyd714: Bought @GretaChristina’s new book, and I’m in awe of her imagination.

Sonia Zamborsky @pulpologist: Reading the intro to @GretaChristina’s new book while I file my taxes. #nowthatISkinky Yum (and thanks for the brill gift, @scottgrvs)!

julia @j00licious: Dear @GretaChristina: Curse you for writing something I cannot put down for more than 5 mins at a time when I have shit to get done.

WilloNyx @WilloNyx: that was one incredibly hot story. I am up to the bending section. I really love this book.

Matt Bunyan @mtbunyan: @WilloNyx @GretaChristina I’m halfway through power section, absolutely loving the whole book. Every story has been smoking hot so far!

Jo Alabaster @joalabaster: @j00licious @GretaChristina Sadly, it will be over far too quickly. Thankfully, its reread value is still quite high. :)

WilloNyx @WilloNyx: Finished Bending. Have to say @GretaChristina’s novella at the end is the best part and there were several stories that were hard to top.

Laura @Laura_Rhymes: @GretaChristina Stop, stop! I’m getting all flushed. I’m about a quarter of the way through the book and couldn’t be happier.

Ozy Frantz @ _ozymandias42: omg @GretaChristina’s Bending is SO HOT everyone should go buy it

Ozy Frantz @ _ozymandias42: …okay so that’s a story about a rainbow and a unicorn having sex???? @GretaChristina wtf

Mercutia @LadyMercutia: @_ozymandias42 @GretaChristina Some of her stories inspire major WTF, but they’re impossible to put down. Or forget.

And on blogs:

Rachel Kramer Bussel, guest blogging on Smokin’ Hot Firemen, Sexual Diversity in Erotica:

I was blown away by Greta Christina’s new ebook Bending: Dirty Kinky Stories about Pain, Power, Religion, Unicorns, & More because even though I’ve read a lot of erotica in my lifetime, she still managed to surprise me. Her characters are varied, and approach their sexual desires and fantasies differently. She doesn’t shy away from scenarios that will very likely make many readers uncomfortable—and likely, uncomfortable and turned on all at once.

Avicenna, A Million Gods, Greta’s Book – Bending:

Greta’s book on erotica is out and it’s quite the book. I got a copy for Tigasuku who has been getting some interesting ideas from them…

And PZ Myers, Pharyngula, Greta Christina has a new book:

It’s called Bending: Dirty Kinky Stories About Pain, Power, Religion, Unicorns, & More. I bought it. I read the first page of the introduction, my gnarled and liver-spotted hands trembling, and saw words that were threatening to my comfortable cis male heterosexual conventionality, and then started getting palpitations. I set it aside. Maybe when I’ve recovered and my heart gets a little stronger, I’ll try the second page.

Unless…maybe one of you can read it and tell me if it’s got stuff suitable for a geezer. Or, you know, I’m not really into unicorns, so maybe you can tell me which page has the hot cephalopod action.

Another possibility is that I could give it to my wife to read. I’m just afraid that if she really likes it, I might not survive the experience.

Or maybe I could ask her to read it aloud to me. That ought to be safe. Like a children’s book, right? Bedtime stories?

Thanks, everyone!

And if you’ve said nice things about Bending on Twitter, blogs, or elsewhere in the public eye, and I haven’t cited them, let me know! I’ll put it in next week’s round-up. If you’ve read the book and liked it, an Amazon review would be awesome. And once again, you can buy the book at Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords!

    I’ve read it now. It’s excellently written — and it’s not the usual one-dimensional porn I’ve encountered on the internet (you know what I mean: the “Tab A goes into Slot B” kind of porn that reads like an Ikea manual, with lube). It’s the kind of porn that explores what people are actually thinking and feeling.

    My only reservation, and it’s not a criticism, is that it’s got a focused theme. This is a book of stories about dom/sub relations and spanking, and it doesn’t match up well with my personal kinks (which I will not discuss, except to note that the word “tentacle” only appears ONCE in the entire book, and then as a metaphor). But if it does align with your interests, expect quality arousal.

    I really like them so far (I’m about half way through).
    But the one with the unicorn and the rainbow gets really weird if you have a 5 yo daughter :)
    No worries, I’m pretty able to tell fact from fiction. You sexualized the unicorn, not the kid, so that’s totally OK in my book. Just weird if you live in a unicorn-enriched environment.
