in Non-Fiction by

Women’s March is planning a national school walk out on Wednesday, March 14 in solidarity with the students in Parkland, Florida who have organized a National School Walk Out for March 24.  The purpose of both marches is to bring awareness to the gun violence epidemic in the U.S. and to advocate for common sense gun laws that help keep both our children and our schools safe.

It’s safe to say that the women’s march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, January 21, was a huge success. The peaceful rally drew people from all over the world, with satellite marches popping up in cities across the globe (including Antartica!). The numbers are still rolling in, but some sites are reporting that there was an estimated three times the amount of people at the march than there were at Trump’s Inauguration the day before. Many popular authors attended marches around the country, and they took to Twitter to talk about it: Judy Blume tweeted a photo from the Key West march in Florida:   Stephen King joined a rally in Sarasota:   Elizabeth Gilbert shared some of the signs she saw at the…

in Romance by

Warning! The below content is not intended for anyone under 18!

In fact, BookTrib even has its own area dedicated to erotica authors, called After Dark.

3 Erotic novels far hotter (and better written) than 50 Shades of Grey

in Romance by

It was last year when I first tried to read 50 Shades of Grey. I didn’t get very far. And no, it wasn’t the content—I can appreciate good erotica as much as the next girl. But see how I used the word good there? As much as I wanted to like it, 50 Shades just wasn’t doing it for me. Does that mean I won’t be watching the movie when it comes out this weekend? Um, certainly not. While the book feels a bit like published fanfiction (which, incidentally, it is), the movie looks like a crazy hot magical romp with shirtless Jamie Dornan:   I mean, I’m only human. While I may not be drawn to the writing style…
