Lookout Books’ Guide to Valentines Day, Part 1

We at Lookout Books get it. We’re writers, readers, students, and teachers in addition to being boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses, lovers, ‘just friends.’ Finding time for finding Valentine’s Day gifts is hard. So we’re here to help with a multi-part guide to literary gifts of love.

First up, introducing ‘Writs of Passion,’ a collection of stories by Lookout author Steve Almond. The stories unabashedly feature sex (Why I Write Smut: A Manifesto) and, for a limited time, are available in a six-book series. The covers line up to form a larger risque image, below.

In their recommendation of the series, About.com says, “I can’t think of anyone who writes about mostly heterosexual people having sex better than he does. It’s funny, weird, unexpected, with just enough four letter words ending in hard consonants to create tingly feelings from the inside out.”

To order Writs of Passion, follow instructions here.
