A Savannah Mae Exclusive: Paranormal Romance – Rene Folsom, A Special Author Highlight


While working the social scene, I find this doll-a true gem-of a woman, Rene! She writes freaky-tiki paranormal romance novels that will knock your socks off…or your panties. Might I add, she created my blog logo! She is FABULOUS, 3 snaps down! If you have questions for Rene, leave your comments below and she will answer your questions directly. RIGHT HERE ON MY BLOG! We love a down to earth chick.

As an award-winning web and graphic designer, Rene Folsom has always grasped the ability to transform information into art. After many years in the design industry, capturing the attention of the reader with great graphics was no longer her only goal. While her artistic side will always be her source of inspiration, Rene has found that branching out into the literary world with her heartfelt, romantic, and rather steamy Rene-Folsom-Headshotstories by combining her love of art and reading was just the next step in her journey.

Being a mother of three and wife of one, Rene has had to juggle career, kids, family, grocery shopping, and stain removal. Years of experience have provided her plenty of creative material to work with. Using both words and design, taking these very different experiences and bringing them all to paper has proven to be quite enjoyable for both writer and reader alike.

Obtaining her degree from Santa Fe State College in Gainesville, Florida, Rene studied everything from fine arts to sculpture and vocals, but found her true artistic inspiration when she took off to Italy after graduation.

Still residing on the beaches of sunny Central Florida, Rene Folsom now adds the title of “author” to her belt, providing contemporary and paranormal romance stories to her readers. If you like stories that ratchet up your heart rate and make you lose your breath, then bask in the glow of your eReader and let one of Rene’s books take your heart, body, and soul on a journey.

Learning to deal with loss and love, Ella manages to live a seemingly normal life… or so she thought. (Kindle Edition)

Excerpt: Slowly, things started to change. The night sky still shone with brilliance as the stars twinkled overhead like crystalline tears, but the trees and branches no longer obstructed my view. I could feel a chill run through my body, but Jonah’s warmth next to me made it bearable.

The stars began to multiply and were shining so bright, the sky actually looked to be a deep midnight blue. I could even see the misty flow of the Milky Way. Just below the swath….Read More!

Eyes-FB-Cover1JUST RELEASED TODAY!!!! Eyes of the Soul (Soul Seer #2)Synopsis: Jonah has never experienced a woman more stunning than the beauty that haunted his dreams.  Although his dreams had every feeling of reality, he woke up every morning with the stark realization that those Amethyst eyes were only a figment of his imagination.  Yet he still couldn’t seem to get her stare out of his mind.

Making his way through life, Jonah’s love of art became his outlet.  His talents proved to be the only way to recreate his dreams.  Her beauty was his constant.  Even though he didn’t know her name, he was determined that one day he would find her. (Kindle Edition)

Excerpt: She was breathtakingly beautiful, which never surprised me but still had me gasping for air. Golden blond curls sprang around her face as she smiled while riding a sleek, brown horse through a thicket of trees. The muscles of the horse tensed and flexed beneath her as she maneuvered the animal with affluence, causing its brown coat to shimmer in the moonlight. She guided the horse along the path with power and ease. Her splendor knows no bounds. What I wouldn’t give to be the one to put that smile on her face.

As much as I tried not to be the typical hungry male, I couldn’t help but notice her large, perfect breasts beneath the tank top she wore as they lightly sprang….Read More!

Excerpt: I watched her reach for the two Kiss Me candy hearts and clasp them between her dainty fingers. Seductively, she brought one to her mouth and placed it carefully between her teeth so the heart was upright and the words faced out.

My heart thundered in my chest as I watched her turn slightly in my direction and advance closer to me with the candy heart still clasped between her teeth. She placed her hand on my bare thigh and leaned forward, offering her lips and the sweet candy heart to me….Read More!
****Bind Me is an erotic romance short story for ADULTS ONLY!****


Offically Released! Bind Me: A Roommate Romance Novelette
Lily had a suspicion her new roommate was the type to always take control, no matter what the situation. It wasn’t until she accidentally peeked in on Chaz dominating another woman, that her suspicions were realized. Lily watched with amazement as Chaz masterfully played the female like a sensual instrument, bringing her the most intense gratification Lily had ever witnessed.

After witnessing his sexual expertise from a distance and noticing the careful attention he gives to his lovers, Lily wanted nothing more than to have his hands sculpt every inch of her body. Unable to forget the incredibly erotic scene Chaz so skillfully played out, Lily sought to make her desires known by casually submitting to him throughout their daily lives.

To her excitement, Chaz invites Lily to his prestigious art show opening at a local gallery. All it takes is a slinky dress, a pair of kitten heels, and a tiny scrap of lace to drive Chaz wild, causing some very heated moments.

Excerpt: As I knelt there watching his every move with expectation, Chaz began to unbutton the cuffs of his sleeves and roll them up, allowing the defined muscles of his forearms to show. He then began unbuttoning his shirt just enough that the oh-so-sexy tattoo on his left pectoral peeked from beneath the fabric. I was lucky to keep myself from drooling at the sight of the black ink tracing around his toned muscles and perfectly sculpted skin.“I want you to….Read More!

  1. My dear Ms. Folsom, I must say that I was shocked–SHOCKED!–to see how graphic in nature your novellas SOUL SEERS #1 and HEART YOU were. Aren’t you concerned at all about the delicate sensibilities of reader’s like myself?

    • Why exactly would you read anything for adults only if your sensitive? That is sounds really silly. And them to have 2 half nakes photos of girls on your facebook page is surely sensitive. Im shocked too Rene because u should be famous and your not.

    • Hmmm. If they’re supposed to be ADULT books, why would you be shocked? And like Savannah mentioned, you have to semi-naked girls on your profile pic, and you have the gall to complain? Though I have not read either books, I’m pretty sure they have some kind of warning on there stating they’re for adults only. Your comment Mr. Grayson is VERY hypocritical, at the very least.

      • Honestly. Have you not heard of E L James yet? She’s made billions out of her three graphic novels so there must be a whole lot of SENSITIVE readers out there who crave to get down and dirty in private. If you don’t like it, put it down and stop reading!

    • Rene –

      Congrats on the Success of your books. You deserve it!

      Jayce –

      If you have an aversion to adult content, you may want to steer clear of “Adult” type books. Also your avatar is a tad bit contradictory.

      Thanks to all!

    • Jayce –

      I am very flattered my writing “shocks” you. It means I’m doing something right. 😉

      The word shocked is a positive reaction to me. This tells me my words hit you to your core. Some of those feelings may be positive, others may be negative.

      The act of sex is a natural thing. Every person has different sexual activities they enjoy. The same goes for reading… every person has different tastes—different delicate sensibilities. It is impossible for one writer to make every reader happy. I have already had people reject my story “Heart You” because of its length (or lack there of). The reaction didn’t offend me because I know that is their preference

      And to support all my other defenders out there, all of my adult novelettes are marked as such. I make sure to let each reader know the level of hotness before they hit that purchase button. So, if they end up being shocked and offended with me sharing such a natural, primal act as sex, the responsibility is not on my shoulders.

      Thank you again for your comment, Jayce. I thoroughly enjoy a challenge! 😉

    • Jayce, I am appalled at your comment. I mean, naked girls on your profile? And Ms. Rene’s books, while they may be shockingly hot and “panty-melting” at least warn of the graphic nature where Xianne comes out of nowhere with the “panty-drenching”. Delicate sensibilities…hmmm…delicate. Brings to mind naughty parts. 😉

    • Of course, you would ask THAT question! I knew it was bound to come up. Everyone loves to ask the erotica author what inspires her to write. LOL

      In all seriousness though, these books have some great stories behind them that prompted me to write. That being said, I have to initially point out that I never had the desire to write until I fell into my reading addiction. Great authors are almost always the first and foremost inspiration of any new (and sometimes seasoned) authors.

      Voices of the Soul was initially written for the Paranormal Anthology with a Twist. Prompts were given which allowed me just enough inspiration to spark my creativity. Within the story, several real-life experiences inspire my character building. I am a sculptor/potter by heart—I love it. So, readers will often find my characters based around the experiences that have touched me throughout my life—art being a HUGE inspiration.

      Heart You was actually started as a minor Valentine’s Day challenge on a Goodreads group thread. The poster gave these prompts and asked us to write a short story: “I thought this might be fun. I know we all like to show off what we can do. I am going to give you a few prompts and you give me a short story of a few paragraphs! A love triangle, Valentine’s Day, Candy Conversation Hearts, Black Roses, and Water Balloons…” Of course, I can never stick to just a few paragraphs—I am way too wordy for that. But, the prompts immediately brought a story to mind and I was able to expand on it further from there.

      So, to sum up my essay of a reply, life experiences are my main inspirations for my character and scene development. Participating in fun challenges and anthologies also help spark my interest.

      Thank you for asking, Shannon! 🙂
