Club Lighthouse Publishing offers iPhone format

Club Lighthouse Publishing is offering some of its books in iPhone friendly PDF format. These are formatted for the iPhone screen size to limit the need for zooming and scrolling side to side.

So far all the the "Eden" series has been iPhone formatted, and also Eyes of the Cross.

As I suspected, soft porn in the guise of science fiction.

Nothing wrong at all. Just that they don't sound very interesting. Most soft porn is dull as all can be.

Depends on what piques your interest, I think.

Personally, I find most hard core porn boring beyond measure. The imagination is the best erotic stimulus. Leave nothing to the imagination, and you often subtract a great deal from the story.

One of my cases in point is Anais Nin's _Delta of Venus_. It's a collection stories written for a patron, who demanded action and only action. They read like outlines for the stories Nin wanted to write, but wasn't allowed to. What was stripped out in the pursuit of action was depth and character.

Most of the interesting erotica these days isn't marketed as porn -- it's sold as romance.

OK, any details on the size of the PDF and of the font that they're using ? I could have such settings on Feedbooks too, at least as a template in the custom PDF settings.

Well, obviously there is such a variety of tastes that you aren't going to please everyone. But here
is a little sample -- is it "too hard" or "too soft" or "just right" for you?

The latest novel in the Eden series, A Goddess in Eden is now out. You can find it at Club Lighthouse Publishing
or on Mobipocket.

This one is perhaps a bit more "erotic" than the others in the series. Here is a little sample of what we could put out in the open.
