Release Day for IMPERVIOUS: Confessions of a Semi-retired Deviant!

Happy book birthday, Janet W. Hardy!

Today is the official release day for IMPERVIOUS: Confessions of a Semi-retired Deviant! Available in print and ebook!

HardyCover2 Praise for IMPERVIOUS –

Our life is story. We learn through story. We explore through story. We achieve our goals and fantasies through story. If your objective is to learn about BDSM and kink through the eyes of one of the world’s great practitioners and intellectual minds, then this book is a perfect choice for your reading pleasure. Insightful. Smart. Transparent. Informative. Ms. Hardy is a legend and she exposes her kink life bare so that your kink life may be better, and the entire kinky world is better off for it. Enjoy.    – Race Bannon, Author, Activist and Organizer

Before you start reading this book, put away your pearls and white gloves and make sure the children are out of the room. You are about to submerge yourself in the hottest, most educational journey about kink [or BDSM or sadomasochism – your choice – JH]. Janet beautifully and intelligently shares how she came to spend her life immersed in sexual play that will make even the most experienced reader blush.      – Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity and Lush: A Memoir porn

Impervious is a clean, transparent reflection of a life of deviant sexuality that will inspire anyone to grasp their fantasies and give them respect– and maybe act them out.  – Susie Bright

Impervious is one of the finest erotic memoirs ever written. Janet Hardy not only takes off her clothes, but also her skin in this exquisitely written, searingly honest book. Observing her life as one long, extended BDSM scene, she takes us on both a personal and social evolution of kink. For Janet, kink is not only a sexual passion but also an odyssey beyond sex into the realms of the ecstatic where sex, enlightenment and death dance frighteningly close. Impervious is a must read.     – Barbara Carrellas, author of Urban Tantra and Ecstasy is Necessary

Move over Shades of Grey! This is the best sex memoir ever! Soon to be an erotic art classic, and hopefully a major motion picture! With wisdom, truth telling, and sexual skill, Janet Hardy deftly whips words into ecstatic, divine submission.     – Annie Sprinkle, PhD., author of The Explorer’s Guide to Planet Orgasm

IMPERVIOUS: Confessions of a Semi-retired Deviant Cover Reveal!

HardyCover2

Others have turned to Janet W. Hardy’s The Ethical Slut, The New Topping Book and The New Bottoming Book – for advice on the most challenging questions of sex, polyamory, kink, and self-identity.

But Janet had to make it up as she went. How did she do it? Well, as you might expect from the co-author of Sex Disasters… and How to Survive Them, it hasn’t all been roses (or thorns for that matter).

Here, in IMPERVIOUS: Confessions of a Semi-Retired Deviant, Janet takes you through the five twisty stages of her own kinky life – mirroring those of any good scene – negotiation, warmup, engagement, climax, and aftercare.

Delicious (and surprising) details await you inside. Bon Appétit!

Some presale links are already live! Check out the Books to Read link for presale locations! Release day is April 20, 2019!

Open call for Book It! – A Literary-Lover’s Anthology
Edited by Harley Easton and CM Peters

Take a peek between the pages with SinCyr Publishing. Editors Harley Easton and CM Peters want lovers of a bookish nature. Give us your best librarian, book dealer, first-edition collector, or bookstore owner. We don’t mind the stereotypical Marion the Librarian, but we’re excited to see other inspired options. Is your bibliophile actually an illiterate adult yearning to understand the written word? Could your ‘meet cute’ happen at the Little Free Library on the neighbor’s lawn? Whether they are snuggled in the cozy home book nook or trying to ignore the sexual tension during book club, give us characters we’d love to see jump off the pages and into our sheets.

These editors prefer storytelling with sensuality and depth. Characters should be relatable people facing real problems. If you choose to have sex scenes, focus on sex-positive characters and storylines that showcase healthy sex practices – consent is super sexy. Character diversity is encouraged. Write people of all different shapes, sizes, races, genders, and orientations. Be creative. Give your characters backgrounds and dialogue that move the story forward.

KintsugiEcover

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of using gold (and other precious metals) to repair broken pottery. The ritual is complex, intentional, and contemplative. Upon completion, the once-broken vessels are made whole. They are stronger and possess a different type of beauty than before.

Kintsugi is the perfect metaphor for healing trauma.

Healing is multifarious. Not only does it require effort on the part of the survivor, but also those around them. The most effective healing takes place when there is a network of support. One where others can listen, witness pain, and hold space for the survivor.

This collection is designed to highlight the varying approaches to healing and to honor our individual needs along the way. Some authors are taking their first steps in these pages, while others share their successes in reclaiming their bodies, confidence, sexuality, and joy. Each story is unique – sometimes straightforward, but often counterintuitive (because if healing were simple or straightforward it would surely be easier).

Kintsugi is not for the faint of heart.
