It’s Karma, Baby!

April 21, 2008 | Karin's Blog | 15 comments

Okay, I know what I’m about to tell you is going to shock you, but here’s a secret very few people know about me: There are people out there who don’t like me. Yep, I know, hard to believe, but it’s true! So, one of these people who really, really doesn’t like me, told another person who has some influence over someone I dearly love that, duh duh duh duuuuuuuuuuuuhhhh, Gasp! I write PORN! Yes, PORN! Short for PORNOGRAPHY! Well, fortunately the person who was told I write porn has more than half of the brain that the person who doesn’t like me owns. She, very smart lady that she is, didn’t take finger pointing PORN caller’s word for it. She, God bless her (oops am I allowed to mention God in the same paragraph as my porn?) had to find out for herself what all of the PORN was about. So she googled me, found my site, was so intrigued she bought and read one of my books. Loved it! Naughty porn reader, you!

It gets better. As the person who I love dearly is hearing this story for the first time (from the naughty first time porn buyer) he laughs aloud. Very loud, because this person who I love dearly knows how much I love to write PORN but even more, how much I love it when perfect strangers get solid PORN tips from people out there who don’t like me then discover they love my PORN!

It gets better. So the person I love dearly gets off the phone and finds his eavesdropping coworkers are amused by this story they overhear and can’t wait, well you guessed it, to go out and buy some of my PORN themselves. When the P word is mentioned people stop and listen. So guess what? More people go buy my books and now, you guessed it again, they are now naughty PORN lovers too! Go figure!

So, y’all know what a karma girl I am, and while the original crazy person tried to do me one bad turn, in order to make herself look better, unfortunately for her it not only backfired, but the person I dearly love is now even more not into her. Moral of the story, karma is only good when used with the best intentions. Hey, I like that. Sometimes, for someone who writes PORN, I amaze myself.

Now, to all you peeps out there who haven’t read my PORN, do yourself a favor and go buy some!

Yours Truly,
K-Tab the Queen of Porn

    Well I guess that makes me a porn reader and writer. Cool. I guess the porn yeller wouldn’t like my current wip. Twin sisters who each have their own “play” room or sex room. They even have their own sex swings. That had the guys paying attention at my writing group.

  2. Karin

    Holly I knew there was another reason I liked you so much! Are you going to National?

  3. Holly D

    No. Unfortunately it isn’t in the budget. I’ll have to live vicariously through all of you. I loved the karma used with best intentions. That should be a bumper sticker.

    I’ve never understood the pleasure these people durive from belittling someone’s work. It doesn’t make their own work any better. It just shows what an unpleasant person they are. She’s probably jealous that she can’t write good porn. Pardon the poor grammar.

    As always, you rock.

    Start saving for next year. I think it’s in Dallas. Is that closer to you?

    As far as the PORN pointer, she isn’t a writer, she’s just another unhappy person lashing out…

    Hey, you know, a few months ago, I found you in the erotica section. My local Borders has two: one at the beginning of the romance section, and then one way in the back where there’s a really-really erotica section. You were in the really-really section.

    I re-shelved you to where the rest of your books are. 🙂

  6. Karin

    Spy, you’re a doll. Mucho thank you!

  7. Edie

    Karin, this is hilarious! Love all the porn mentions. It’s that attitude that’s made you a success. You’re unstoppable.

  8. B.E. Sanderson

    LOL You know with as many time as you use PORN in your post, you’re going to get some interesting new visitors to the blog.

    I think it’s great that all this snert’s intentions actually backfired, and brought you some new fans, too. Love it when stuff like that backfires. Karmic balance. =o)

  9. Michelle

    LOLOL, K. You should get a lot of hits from this blog. And they’ll all go off and buy some of your porn 😈 .

    Karin…next year is DC!

    On top of what you’ve already said I FIRMLY believe that if you own a word (PORN, SMUT, SEX, whatever) it takes away the power to use it against you. So while some writers might find the thought of me saying, “Hell yeah I write smut,” I’m just ownin’ it 😀

  11. LaDonna

    Karin, that karma is strong stuff! I love that intention always boomerangs back to the giver. You either get a hug back from the Universe, or a swift kick in arse! 😎

    Love your attitude, you go!

  12. Karin

    LD karma is strong stuff. My mil always says what goes around comes around. The older I get the more I believe that is true.

    Edie, did I say PORN?!

    Beth, and Michelle, as I posted this blog I thought about that! So far no P word.

    Ames, DC? Gah. Scary place. Hmmm, maybe I’ll bring the hubster.

    KARIN,i just read Good Girls gone Bad & all i can say is WOW!!That was your first novel!!!!My local store doen’t carry Skin so i have to find it online i guess.I’m hooked 🙂

  14. Karin

    Yay! Cher, so glad you enjoyed Good Girl! Let me know how you like SKIN. JADED, Jase’s story comes out in June, and in my most humblest of opinions I think it’s the best.

    *sigh* Karin, some people are just too stupid for words. But damn cool it increased your fan base!
