I’d like thank the people who let me know (via the poll and through other means) who responded to my question which genre of naturism related books I should focus on. The majority pointed to fantasy, being the Naked Crow books.
It looks like I have the road for Sheila and Jeremy laid out for me. Thank you again!
By the way, work on the third book is progressing nicely. So far I have bad weather, bows and arrows, and a trip in the book. 🙂 Do you want a hint where to?
Hello there. I’m really curious about something so I’m putting the right to express yourself in your hands. It’s okay if you’re not naked when you vote, sometimes the weather or the circumstances just don’t play along.

It’s interesting, even important for me to know this, because then I can decide which style of book I should continue to write.
I’m going to toot my own horn here for a bit, just because I’m so proud. I just found a number of reviews on my first naturist book “Naked Crow”.
On Amazon.com someone called it an “unusual nudist story” and ends the review with the words:
If you do not normally read stories dealing with nudity as a theme, I strongly encourage you to read this one book. I believe you will be surprised what you think about nudity and nudism after you finish reading this book!
You might find that deep inside you are a nudist and don’t realize it until now. Enjoy this fun read anyway. I think you will enjoy the story! Invest three dollars to see if what I have told you in my review is true!!
I also found 2 reviews on Amazon.co.uk, both of them stating nice words about my book. I’m very proud now, and happy that I sat down to write this book. I had never thought that people would take an interest in it, but this encourages me even more to write a second book about Sheila and her friends at the Mighty Oaks resort.
I’m entirely blown away by the amount of people who’ve purchased a copy of Naked Crow. Even more so because of all the positive comments I received about the book, and the very nice review that appeared on the HomeClothesFree Bookclub. It’s obvious that there are by far not enough books that deal with nudism, naturism and (social) nudity in a serious way.That’s why I’ve decided to write a sequel to Naked Crow. I think I have a very nice problem lined up for Sheila and her friends for this book.
I had already started to write a new book that involves nudism/naturism, a science fiction which will probably be called Nude in Space, although that’s the working title for now. When there’s something noteworthy to mention about either of those writing projects, I’ll drop a note here.
Thank you to everyone who talks about Naked Crow and who promotes the clothes-free lifestyle!
In a previous post I mentioned that I had written a book to put naturism in a more positive light for the rest of the world. Too many people still think that it’s wrong if you want to go around in the nude, instead of being ‘decently dressed.
It’s still not completely done. Editing takes a while, as does implementing some feedback from test-readers which requires a number of changes here and there, but all in all I am very pleased with the progress I’m making with the book.
My hope is that I have wrapped everything up around February and that I can publish it as an e-book by then.
I am not certain about making it a paper copy as well, as that involves all kinds of other technical aspects, but we’ll see how things work out. I’m already looking at possibilities.
Yes, I’ve done it. I’ve written a book that features naturism, and I did my best to put it in a positive light. It’s also a fantasy book. The book’s written, but not finished as I still need to spell-check, edit and so forth. I did make a cover for it already, and here’s a preview for you:
The text for the back-matter I’ve come up with so far:
Sheila is a dental assistant with an normal life, until one of her friends goes missing and the police face a mystery. Her friend Josy went missing in a naturist resort and there is no trace of her. Sheila, who discovers a special ability within herself, decides to find Josy herself, but for that she will have to go into the naturist resort – and shed her clothes!
(As this is an entirely different genre than what I usually write, I chose to use a pen name for this one.)
Why this book? There are not enough books that feature naturism and nudism, and certainly not enough of them that put the subject in a positive light. I got the idea after reading a great story that does (Naturist, red in tooth and claw, link goes to my review of it).
I hope to make a bit of a difference with this book. I’ll keep you posted when it’s out there.
