My next release, Cruise into Eden, is coming out in two weeks and it takes place on a nude cruise. Actually, it is referred to as a “clothing optional” cruise and they do exist. What was so interesting about setting this story on a nude cruise was all the interesting “rules” that come with these trips.
For instance, all the passengers must wear clothes when the ship is at port. I’m guessing this is out of respect for the various cultures it comes into contact with at its different ports of call. Another interesting rule is that the passengers must wear clothing if they dine in the main dining room or any of the various restaurants on the ship, but they don’t have to at the bars, nightclubs and casinos. Also, when the nude passengers sit anywhere, they must use a towel, a robe, or their own clothing to sit on. The cruise line will actually put out stacks of towels in many of the public places so the passengers can follow this etiquette.
There were other rules as well, but those are an important part of the story and I don’t want to spoil it :-) I have to say that setting an erotic romance on a nude cruise was incredibly fun! My cover reveal happens tomorrow for all my Update subscribers. If you would like to be the first to see it, sign up here http://eepurl.com/D3MqT I can’t wait for this release!
