Conquered by Clippy: An Erotic Short Story (Digital Desires Book 2)
About this deal
I can safely say that I've never read a romance featuring a giant paperclip before. And after reading this book I don't think I have ever read a romance featuring a giant paperclip, but we'll get to that later. First, the plot rundown. It's called Conquered by Clippy. Rule 34 continues to bestride the Internet like a colossus, apparently. Oh, and there's more …
Good grief, someone has written an erotic book about Clippy
The support showed up in real life, too. At client dinners, on trains. The artist hadn’t quite fathomed the ubiquity of his paperclip until all those memes and encounters. Some even tried to claim credit for the original design. Atteberry would send files to Microsoft’s legal department to prove he was the sole designer. “It’ll probably be mentioned when I die, the creator of Clippy or whatever,” he realized.To me, the cover of the book also doesn't read like something that would line up with the rest of the Romance genre. Love, Laugh Lich by Kate Prior is a book I'd say is Romance proper yet is also funny in nature, and it features a clinch between the MMC and FMC. This book's cover has a woman in her underwear, Clippy, and text/colour choices that don't remind me of Romance. Leonard Delaney’s Digital Desires Inbox contains three stories of close encounters with technology. Interesting fact: if you analyze that cover art, you'll see that Clippy is composed of various hues, all grey. And you know how many? Sure you do: 50.

LD: I don't want to give anything away, but I just released Invaded by the iWatch. The iWatch is a fictional device that I made up, but fans of Siri will certainly find a lot to like about this new story, available now from Forest City Pulp. A community & discussion-based subreddit for romance novels, literature, and movies from an intersectional feminist perspective. Meta-discussion of the genre on traditional and social media.
But Bob bombed. Swiftly. Trade magazines, all-powerful gatekeepers then, lampooned it as too basic. MH: Explain your readers to us. How many people are buying your books because they’re funny and stupid, and how many are buying them as fodder for actual masturbation? The book also features a familiar-sounding CEO called 'Phil Gates', but obviously our hero Christie only has eyes for helpful old Clippy.
