Josephine Baker and the saucy postcard story giveaway

As a writer and stationery addict, I’m always looking for new ways to satisfy my lust for snail mail. So, naturally, I joined Postcrossing – a global postcard exchange site – a couple of years ago. It’s a pretty addictive hobby, and a simple one, too: you request an address, and then send that member a postcard. In return, you receive another postcard from a totally different member. You register your cards, based on codes given along with the member’s address, and get to keep track of all the countries you’ve sent cards to and received cards from. You can also upload images of the cards, favorite the ones you like best, and the more postcards you send, the more you get.

Neat, right?

Recently I received a super cool postcard from a fellow erotica author in the Czech Republic:

Josephine Baker postcard from the Czech Republic

Interestingly enough, this is my second Josephine Baker postcard, although it’s the first one I’ve received through Postcrossing. The first was sent by a friend of mine from Facebook, Brian S. Roe. Here’s the card he sent:

These two hot postcards combined have given me an idea: sexy postcard stories written on actual postcards and mailed around the world!

So, here’s the idea:

  1. Anyone who wants a sexy postcard story gets one.
  2. All of the stories will be spicy, but not dirty enough to get you into trouble with your significant other, boss, co-workers or the postal service’s indecency laws. (Think innuendo, not graphic displays.)
  3. All postcards will be handwritten by me and sent to the mailing address of your choice. (Offer valid globally, wherever you can receive a postcard from the US. So, probably not North Korea. Sorry, Kim Jong-un!)
  4. Offer of one free postcard story good until my postcard supplies run out (or December 31, 2014 – whichever comes first)

Want to receive a postcard? Just say so in the comments below. I’ll use the email address you specify in order to get in touch with you privately, so you don’t have to post your home address on the internet for all the world to see. Then, all you’ve got to do is sit back and watch your mailbox.

Sound like fun? Let’s play!

    Fab JB postcards. Were they printed in recent years?

  2. I believe so, Denise. One says it is from “Vintage Postcards International,” and the other is mostly covered up by stickers, so I’m not sure about the printer.

  3. I’d love a “dirty” postcard, and what a great idea. Please zap me an email when you have time. Cheers and happy Sunday.

  4. Will do, Cinthia! Thanks for playing along, and I hope you enjoy the postcard when it arrives.
