Rye - an erotic novel (paperback book)

from Black Tape For A Blue Girl

Black Tape For A Blue Girl (and Projekt) founder Sam Rosenthal turns erotic novelist within the pages of Rye.

ON SALE ($13 at Amazon, $6 here!)

A money-shot across the bow of outdated sensibilities, Rye takes a sexual somersault through the complexities of desire in a penetrating portrayal of twenty-first century intimacy.

"I spent some time devouring Rye and really really enjoyed not only the story and the characters and the death snark, but also the way that Sam tackled the new thing about relationships. It's the same as it ever was, and it's not the same as it ever was. And that melds so beautifully in Rye. Thanks for the good read!" — Carol Queen, The Center for Sex and Culture, San Francisco

Matt is dating Rye, a willfully free androgynous school teacher. Attracted to Matt’s kinkiness and groundedness, Rye develops a taste for his masculinity and their top-bottom dynamic. At a weekend SexxCamp retreat, Matt meets Rain, a charming and snarky twenty-something GenderQueer woman. An unconventional three-way relationship develops, expanding their understanding of polyamory, gender identity, love and connection.


An engaging page-turner, Rye is a new look at the masculine/feminine identity and dynamic, with hot sex!

In Rye, Brooklyn-based musician Sam Rosenthal expands his horizons beyond Black Tape For A Blue Girl, with a novel that takes the reader on a steamy, snarky and erotic walk on the wild side.

"Rye is as intellectually stimulating as erotically charged. As for the erotic content, I can’t hope to list of all that is covered, toys, BDSM, roleplay, gender fluidity in sex… the list goes on. A sense of realism triumphs; don’t expect to read erotica with paper-thin characters you are only meant to overlay with your own fantasies (although if some of the book’s scenes push your fantasy buttons in a good way, that’s great too!). With fully developed characters who struggle through relationships, gender, and sexuality in an erotic context, Rye, is a unique work; quite the refreshing read!" — Marilyn Roxie, genderqueerid.com

“Rye is probing — in every sense of the word — in both its critical exploration of gender identity and its display of those personal tensions within real life relationships. It raises plenty of provocative questions about sexuality and polyamory, while telling a pretty good story. Rye is a new insight into queer lifestyles, or at least a more intellectual way to get off.” — Gay City News, NYC

Orders in the USA are shipped via MEDIA MAIL.

“Rye is like Fifty Shades of Grey if it were written for intelligent adults who actually have sex. With authentic top-bottom, it’s pretty damn hot! Come to think of it, I guess it’s nothing like Fifty Shades.” - Rain
