About Lindsay Debout

I live in the English countryside with a loving spouse, two equally lovely children and a cat who has his moments – usually when he’s hungry. Writing is an occasional hobby, the genre of choice being adult-themed short stories from the female perspective. The goal is simply to entertain.

Review by: Gars Méchant on Feb. 24, 2016 :
It isn't often that you stumble across a talented and thoughtful author in the Erotic section of any online retailer, especially one who self-publishes. This collection of short stories by Lidsay Debout shows an artist confident in her craft, enough so that she knows how to paint a vivid picture of a place and time, as well as the mindset of the characters, with precision.
These stories are not porn. They definitely deal with adult subject matters, erotically and explicitly, but do not pass the "porn test." They cross over into thoughtful literature, and are the better for that.
If you like thoughtful, well crafted, and adult short stories, something that engages your mind as much or more than your groin, you should definitely read this book. You can't beat the price for this quality!

This is Lindsay (the author), borrowing a friend's account to answer some of the points made by the reviewers..
No, most of my stories aren't that hot and I thought carefully about labelling them as 'erotic'. Problem is, 'adult' on its own these days usually means 'violence, drugs, bad behaviour and people being generally crappy to each other'. That's not what my stories are like. Since my stories do all contain sex scenes, I figured that 'erotic' would take the edge off the 'adult'. Also 'erotic' does make it clear that sex is involved.
Hope that clears things up.
I can't leave a review without it affecting my overall star rating, so to be fair I would have given this 2.5 stars. I can't do that and it's my book, so three it is...

Not that hot, but still mostly good reads. I was going to give it four stars but CoCoClown's review made me change my mind. LD is trying to be different, which is a good thing.

Porn? Not really. Erotic? A little. Adult? Definitely. Intimate? Definitely. I like it like that.

I prefer my erotica to have a backstory, so LD's style is fine for me.

CoCoClown - speak for yourself. Some of us like to use our brains as well as our hands when we read porn.

I liked Artistic Licence, Colorado Dreaming and Leopard Lady best..

I don't see LD as a man. I see her as an older woman working through some personal issues - maybe trying to rewrite some scenes from her own past with a happier ending.

With LD you eavesdrop on what the main character is thinking & feeling. You get more of the 'why' and less of the 'how'.

Artistic Licence - Suspenseful. Hot!

Colorado Dreaming - Wish I'd had holidays like that when I was young!

Hair Day - I'm not into BDSM but it was an interesting story.

Helping Hand - Made me think. I won't look at my grannie the same way again!

Joint Enterprise - Okay, but not of LD's best. Seems like she was trying a different style which didn't work for me.

Leopard Lady - Explores several different themes at once. No bad for one short story.

Plan D - a bit clunky but did make some good points.

You can't tell from the profile but I think Lindsay is a man. If I'm right then I guess he is at least he's trying to see things from my point of view. Sometimes he gets it right, sometimes he doesn't.

Warming Stories Volume 1 is a collection of short stories. All the stories start with the heroine - a different one every time - in a situation and try to imagine how she would react as it develops. Would I behave the same way if the same thing happened to me? Sometimes yes, sometimes no, but the plots are at least plausible. No vampires or aliens here!

All the stores are about the same length so there's a fair amount going on in them. They take me around an hour to read.

Are they steamy? Depends on what you're looking for. If you want kinky sex from beginning to end, there''s nothing to see here. If you like your porn more real-life then this is for you.

Are they entertaining? It's an anthology, so I liked some stories better than others.

Would I pay good money for them? Maybe, but since they're free I wasn't worried about value for money. Free porn? What's not to like?.
