On bondage books and depressing but cool videos
So...I've been a terrible blogger as you can tell from the date of my last post. I've been trying to finish writing THE BEAUTY OF SURRENDER, my erotic Shibari rope bondage book, due out from Bantam/Delta in the fall, but I'm having a terrible time. I'm not sure what it is, but if this book ever gets finished, it'll be a miracle. Hopefully, I'm in line for a miracle, since the book is due February 1st. Wish me luck!
Researching Shibari has been interesting; I found some really great books. I read SHIBARI YOU CAN USE: JAPANESE ROPE BONDAGE AND EROTIC MACRAME. I thought the title was amusing, but this is a really hands-on demonstration of basic Shibari technique. I also loved Midori's THE SEDUCTIVE ART OF JAPANESE ROPE BONDAGE. Gorgeous photography!
I've been doing some research on trance states and meditation, too, which I'm using in the book; something I've read about before-I find it all fascinating! To see how bondage and trance states are connected, you'll just have to read my book when it comes out. I'll keep you posted!
On a totally different topic...check out this awesome video from comic artist Sam Saturday! Kinda sad but cool! And if you like funny more than sad, you can see his comics on his MySpace page.

    I love Japanese rope bondage. I’d started a fantasy story with Shibari as part of the cultural background but had to stop it for the time being. I have some beautiful photography books on it. I can’t wait to read yours when you’re done.

    Cool Marguerite! Let me know if you need some research resources.
    Shibari really is beautiful to look at.

    Love that video, Lisa. Hang in there with the book. YOu've struggled and then you produce fantastic, beautiful stuff.
    I have no doubt you will this time too.
