Coliloquy’s Choose Your Own Sexual Adventure in the Great Escape Series

Would you like your romance better if you could choose what the hero looks like? That’s what digital publisher Coliloquy is betting with its launch of the Great Escapes series:

Great Escapes, by authors Linda Wisdom and Lynda K. Scott, is a new personalized erotica series centered on the guests of a quiet B&B in rural Virginia.

The heartbroken and lovelorn come to Great Escapes B&B in search of a relaxing getaway, only to embark on a weekend of sexual self-discovery, courtesy of the inn’s resident ghosts, who bring to life each guest’s deepest desires.

Just as the ghosts transform to meet the needs of each guest, Great Escapes leverages the Kindle platform to deliver what each reader wants. Do you like your erotica steamy or romantic? Your hero to have blue or brown eyes? Anonymously fill out your preferences, and we’ll deliver the best version of hundreds of combinations prepared by the authors.

Each time you read the novella, you can alter your preferences to suit your mood. You want your hero to have black hair and grey eyes? Done. Prefer a hairy chest? Got that. Or maybe you want the book to really amp up the steam level? Got that, too.

The story remains essentially the same with these details changed. But see how just a few changes affect the outcome:

Sexy dark brown hair, strong scuplted features, eyes the color of rich aged whiskey, and shoulders broad enough to hold up the world. Her gaze drifted down, over the sculpted chest with a rich dusting of hair, past the ripped abdominals and the narrow waist where another arrow of dark brown hair led to where he joined with her.

Or maybe this guy?

Sun kissed blond hair, strong scuplted features, eyes the color of indigo blue, and shoulders broad enough to hold up the world. Her gaze drifted down, over the smooth, sculpted chest, past the ripped abdominals and the narrow waist where another arrow of dark blond hair led to where he joined with her.

Would you be interested in tweaking your own content (no, that’s not a euphemism)?

This is like romance Mad Libs. I guess it's good if you really don't say, go for blonds or have a current crush and you want to model every hero after him (stalk much?). Interesting, but I wonder where does ethnicity go?
Could be fun to play with though (insert joke there). Imagine at parties or for book clubs.

I'm not really convinced. I mean that's a very interesting idea, and I like the concept well enough. But, as a reader, though I do have my preferences when it comes to character looks and steam-level of erotism, I also like to be surprised.
Part of the pleasure I take into reading is to be taken to places and with people I don't know beforehand, and to discover them through the pages. To have my imagination shaped by the author's own. I'm not sure I'll derive the same pleasures from reading if I'm to chose how the characters look like and what they do.
