3 Years, 700+ Recommendations, 1.8 Million Page Views

I got one of those fancy Facebook On This Day notifications last last night (really, early this morning) with the post I published last year on this day:

Facebook On This Day

It’s been exactly 3 years since I became a Professional Smut Peddler. What first started on my now-black-holed personal website, A Whole Lot of Nothing as a column named Kindle of Ill Repute, and then morphed into Smut Book Club, has now become Shameless Book Club.

This little square of the internet has not only provided me with an income (for real, I am a Professional Smut Peddler), but it’s also given me a super-highway of friends and like-minded smut-lovers. I wish I had the time, money, and energy to personally thank every one of you, but since my mama didn’t bore me into being Oprah, I hope you can feel my thanks through the internet’s series of tubes.

More than anything, I am ever-so-grateful for my lovely contributors. Nelle, Adrian, Marissa, Lina, Theresa, Kyleigh Jane, Dear Mistress, and Solange have given me the extra sets of hands and eyes I need to keep this smut-peddling machine turning. From the bottom of my cold, black, palpitating wonky heart… thank you.

And dear sweet sleeping Baby Jesus, I have so much love to all of you Smut Muffins! You make me proud to be your Mama.

In thanks for all these dirty years, I want to give out a $30 Amazon gift card to one of my special Smut Muffins!

SBC is 3!

Hi. My name is Angie, and I’m a social-media-and-smut-book-reading addict. Hi…Angie… I’ve been working hard on the magical internet since 2006 when I retired from teaching elementary school to stay at home with my two baby girls. Now, I am a smut peddler. You can follow my nonsense on Twitter and Facebook. Simply, I’m just a girl, looking at the book world, asking it to love her.

  12. Lara

    Penelope Douglas – Bully, Until You and Aflame. I love Jared Trent with all my heart. My favorite you recommended. I mean I didn’t know Aflame was out until, I saw your post on the perfect book boyfriend and I was like what other book and I was so glad, if not I would have been lost in ignorance and myself best friend won’t have informed me, so thank you.

  13. Tina B

    My favorite book that you’ve recommended? Hmm…Ricochet by Skye Jordan and CJ Roberts Dark Duet series.

  14. Kara Donovan-Guido

    I only read M/M books now. I am always happy when you have those even though they seem few and far between.

  15. Stephanie W.

    My favorite book(s) you’ve recommended is/are the Driven trilogy by K. Bromberg. I’ve now read all her books and she’s an automatic 1-click for me! Thanks! 8-)

  16. Deborah K

    That is a difficult choice…there are so many. But, “Real” by Katy Evans stood out for me. Thank you for all the WONDERFUL recommendations. Keep ’em coming!
    Happy Anniversay!!!

  17. Candy Lyn

    Ha! You’re kidding right? You have recommended so many books just since I started following you around 6+ months ago that there is no way I could give you a top 10 list of authors, never mind their actual books! K. Bromberg! River Savage! Lauren Blakely! Laurelin Paige! Harper Sloan! Mia Sheridan! Tessa Bailey! CD Reiss! Alessandra Torre!….I could break my fingers typing names! The one thing that I want to thank you for is the steam factors! Your heat ratings have never failed me! Thank you for guiding me in the directions I have wanted to go. It is very appreciated. Some days(not many) I’m looking for something a little cooler than my usual but then there are days I want to get burnt by just touching the book! I know that I can look on SBC and figure it out. Thank you so very much for that! You rock Angie!

  18. Deb

    It would have to be close to everything because since I started getting your newsletter my TBR has increased so much I will be 90 before I get to them all! :)

  19. Jenny Dauksa Schaber

    How the hell do you expect me to pick only one? Kylie Scott is pretty damn high on the list, though.

  20. patty

    I have purchased so many books by your recommendation . I bought 3 today . Thank you for helping find so many wonderful authors !

  21. Gillian Sheffler

    The Original Sinners Series by Tiffany Reisz, is one of my favorites and I wouldn’t have known about it if not for SBC!!!
