by BWW News Desk - Sep 26, 2016

'Satisfying Babygirl: Her Babygirl Book 1' by Kat Kylie chosen as Medalist Winner in the Erotica category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing. Book Synopsis Kat grew up sheltered in the midwest, opting to bury her face in books while her friends explored other avenues of entertainment. As the desire continued to grow and her body began to change, the pleasures that Kat had been denying herself all those years eventually boiled over. After graduation Kat moved to the west coast in an attempt to find her true self. A small town girl from the midwest, now overwhelmed in the big city, she Soon realized how much she'd missed as a teenager. A broke freshman in college, completely out of her depths, she finds herself scrolling through the darker side of the internet where she happens upon Jazz, a more than willing mentor for Kat's coming of age. Their growing friendship turns romantic, stirring feelings in Kat that had long since been forgotten. It isn't long before Jazz takes Kat under her wing and unlocks the forbidden door to deviance. Where will Jazz lead Kat and how far is she willing to go to find the limits of her desire? Read SATISFYING BABYGIRL to find out! About the Author Kat Kylie is an award winning author of literary erotica, comedic author and human resources director. She's not the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. She's the Kat that lives vicariously through the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. In reality, she's your average, run-of-the-mill, boring, everyday, mostly single, professional woman. In 2012, she began reading erotic women's fiction when the craze hit. She admits it was fun at first, but ultimately unsatisfying. 'I enjoyed the storyline that allowed me to feel as though I wasn't just thumbing through porn, but the sexual aspect was often too mundane to take me to the places I wanted to go. There seemed to be a vast divide between acceptable and taboo. It was either vanilla... or involved lactating step-mothers and/or tentacled creatures from the planet GnipGnop.' That's when Kat decided to develop the 'Her Babygirl' series. About The New Apple Book Awards The Annual New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing was established to honor the creative achievements of the unsung books fighting for their place within the digital publishing world. Any English language book published within the last three years, currently available for sale by an independent author or small press that met the Awards' guidelines was eligible for entry. One book was chosen in each category as the Medalist Winner receiving the highest honors. In addition, the judges were permitted to choose up to three Official Selections for category distinction.
