Rose’s Bookhouse: 50 Shades of Naughty

Barbara Vey -- December 3rd, 2012

Saturday night, Rose’s Bookhouse hosted a sold out booksigning that featured erotica authors.  Billed as Naughty & Nice II: 50 Shades of Naughty, it was obvious that this genre is the Twilight for adults.

Since I’m visiting in St. Louis, my daughter-in-law attended with me and it was her first booksigning event.  We came a half an hour early so I could meet with some of the authors before the event started and were amazed by the enormous line formed out the door.  It stretched past the building and into the parking lot.  This group was ready to do some serious book buying and meet their favorite authors.

Beth Kery Signing

Beth Kery Signing

I was thrilled to catch up with two readers who attended my Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon in April.  I asked them how they heard about it since they live in St. Louis and I’m in Milwaukee.  They said an author linked to it on their website and they planned to come again next year because they had an amazing time.  It feels good to know people enjoyed it.



Then I asked readers what it was about the genre that put this event on their “to do” list.

Betty, 63:  “It’s like the taboo subject that’s now in the open and seeing so many others who enjoy the same thing I do.”

Sue, 25:  “I came with my friends for a girl’s night out and waiting in line together is half the fun.”

Mary, 38:  “My mom and I came.  She’s actually the one who gave me the 50 Shades of Grey book and I was shocked to get it from her, but now we laugh about it.”

Renee, 36:  “I like to read all kinds of books and since this is right in my own backyard, I wanted the chance to meet some authors.”

Michelle, 42:  “My girlfriend came last year and so we decided to make a night of it.  She even saw some people from last year.”

Sylvia Day getting to know her readers

While all the authors (Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Shiloh Walker, Beth Kery, Eliza Lloyd and Cassandra Gold) had sizable lines, Sylvia Day’s was by far the longest with the line forming all the way around the room.  This New York Times Bestselling author has her second book out in the Crossfire series, Reflected in You which debuted at #1 on the Times list and has her fans clamoring for the next one.


Bottom Line:  There was food, drink, friendships and great reads.  What more could you ask for in a night out?
