Again, not "that" Written Expressions...

I got an interesting email today:
"Hey Amie,
How's it going? Good I hope. I wanted to send over an email to you because I'm interested in sending over a few shots from a recent shoot I did for a romance & fiction book cover.

I have about 15-20 photos from the shoot that have never been published and are very high quality. These photos are good for any book cover (except gay publications.)

I am not looking to make any money off these, all I ask is that I get credit as the model in the book and that I get notified of a publication.

I have photos ready to go, just send me an email and I'll forward them to you.

Hope this email finds everything well with you."
I contemplated two responses (you'll be happy--or maybe disappointed--to know I went with the former):
  1. Telling him the truth, which is that I am not the Written Expressions that publishes erotic novels
  2. Telling him I only write gay literature and suggesting he send some "less vanilla" photos for my use
This is the second time I've been confused with the other Written Expressions...I don't think I can legally send a "cease and desist" to the other, but I don't like the thought that a person looking for me could accidentally end up on their site instead of mine, and not realize they're in the wrong place. So what's a poor writer/editor (of something other than erotic fiction) to do?

You... you told him you only write gay literature? Or have I confused what you meant by "latter"? Because if you told him option 2, you should have some very interesting photos soon.
