New interview with a booklovinjunkie
Today’s tour has two stops. The first is with the blog Confessions of a Booklovinjunkie for an interview, in which I get to do horrible things like try and describe my writing in ten words or less.
The whole interview is here.
New review from Rolopolobookblog
There is also a new review up of Sapphire Blue:
The myth/legend of the Pazuzu gemstones: This part is just flat-out cool and I found myself wanting to know more about this myth/legend.

Two reviews show the contrast
Here are two reviews that offer an excellent contrast in reactions I’ve seen so far to Sapphire Blue.
The first is a scheduled stop for today’s tour, from Sarah Aisling, who knows me from my other work:
This is where things become difficult for me as a reviewer. I can’t fault Mr. Doucette’s writing; it’s flawless, intriguing, and descriptive. The direction this story took became unsettling, and I found myself peeking through my fingers—something I’d rather not do when reading erotica. Honestly, I’m not really sure what genre Sapphire Blue truly fits into.
You can read the whole review here. Sarah is complimentary about my writing while not all that happy with what I decided to write about this time around. (She was much happier with Fixer) I get that. It’s an extreme kind of story.
Compare that to this reaction from GoodReads reviewer MissyDevoursDelishReads:
What a mindf*ck, my jaw is still dropped! Sapphire Blue by author G. Doucette will either make you run away screaming in terror, or have you spellbound, it all depends upon your erotica intensity level. While I’m still half running/ craving more, this archeological erotica will have your mind and body buzzing with wth moments.
Her entire review is here.
Missy had much the same reaction as Sarah, but rather enjoyed the experience. Will you? I hope so.

Review from Nom de Plume Press
On top of the fantastic news that Sapphire Blue debuts today there is the happy matter of the ongoing blog tour, and today’s stop on that tour is a review from Nom de Plume Press:
Taken for what it is — which is paranormal erotica and horror and suspense – Sapphire Blue is compelling and well-written and not a little disturbing.
The whole review is here.

The day has arrived
Yes, you can now own a copy of Sapphire Blue!
So go get it!
Amazon Barnes & Noble Kobo Direct from Publisher
I wasn’t even up yet this morning and there were already three reviews on Amazon. (Two on the print edition, one on the Kindle. Amazon hasn’t matched up the two listings yet, because they are Amazon.) I was impressed by the speed and efficiency of all concerned, and happy to see two reviews I’d never read before, with lines like:
Its a strange book in a way, very different from what I expected and I still have mixed feelings about it. Its very well written, with characters that felt real – and when I began it Mara and Argent seemed headed for the typical billionaire playboy/naive young lady scenario. Then it gets deeper – they have sex on their first meeting, its not lovemaking, just a quick, hot, heavy burst of sex. Their relationship seems to consist of purely that and Mara is unsure of why. When she tries to ask Argent he’s enigmatic ,and very clever at changing the subject til she’s forgotten what she was asking…
The writer does a great job in giving you the creeps.
A few weeks ago I was thinking about what I wanted to write next and I had the idea that maybe I wanted to write a horror story, since I hadn’t done one of those yet. But the more reviews I read for Sapphire Blue the more I wonder if I already have.
