Further Mormon Romance Links

Those of you who haven't seen my last post are probably wondering about that "further."

Eugene Woodbury's Angel Falling Softly is a romantic vampire story written by a vampire, but one which wasn't actually marketed as LDS fiction, which I learned from Moriah Jovan's post.

And this is Moriah Jovan on genre. I seriously want to read her book now, even though it sounds VERY Mormon and I may miss some references because of that: "The story takes place over the course of 5 years and oh, by the way, they’re all in their late 30s and early 40s and wow is that so not part of genre romance." I mean, yes, that's her blog so obviously that's a self-promotional post, since SELLING her book is part of her job and all, but I think it sounds like a potentially interesting read. I want it. (Also found via her blog, though it has nothing to do with anything I'm trying to find right now: there is a Conservative blog called Absinthe and Cookies.)

And a blog post that suggests a purpose for LDS erotica.

I'm still seeking pre-existence/Mormon romance novel links, so if you find any and care to hand them along, I'd be delighted.

What do you mean by "I'm still seeking pre-existence/Mormon romance novel links"?

My novel KINDRED SPIRITS is a Mormon romance that's full of premortal threads (the title "Kindred Spirits" refers to the idea that the characters knew each other in premortality).

The novel is fairly graphic and full of Mormon weirdness. Here are links to descriptions:

Mr. Bigelow,
Thank you! That sounds like exactly the sort of premortal-romance I'm looking for, and like a great read (it being graphic doesn't bother me). Thank you so much for dropping me those links!
