Voyeur Eyes Only

 

I’m a sucker for calls for submissions with themes.  It’s like being in a writing class and getting a fun prompt.  Here’s a theme…on your mark…get set….WRITE!   As a matter of fact, I keep stickies all over my computer for various anthology prompts as a quick entry into writing.  If I am ever stuck on something I am trying to do, I look at a writing call for submission as a way to get me to write about ‘something.’   

Essemoh Teepee  announced an anthology open only to authors attending the first Erotic Association Authors  convention in Las Vegas last September at the closing party.  The idea was really simple and fun:

Imagine you are a guest of the towering Skylane Hotel.  It affords the best views of the Las Vegas Strip, including hotel rooms of all the most famous Las Vegas hotels.  That’s right, you’re a voyeur with a very powerful telescope and can see into the hotel windows of any of the other famous hotels that surround the Skylane.  Take your inspiration from such famous hotels as the ornate Bellagio, Paris, the hotel that started it all, The Flamingo, the new and naughty Cosmopolitan, the Wynn, etc.

The only restriction is that all the sexy action must be able to be seen through the telescope at the Skylane.  Otherwise, the sky’s the limit: straight, gay, menage, who knows, there might even be a vampire or two.
 

I had a couple of ideas pop into my head right away.  I am, by nature, more of a voyeur than an exhibitionist, so it was fun to turn the table and develop a character who gets off on displaying herself to an imagined audience. 

I am still a baby in the erotica market. In fact, this collection contains my first published  short story (I have self-published elsewhere, and have other work ‘accepted’ but not finalized yet.)   I am honored and delighted to be found in such quality company my first shot out the gate.  I’m including the table of contents with a links to most of the other authors in the collection so you can check them out.

    • My understanding it is just the website that is down.  I get the same error each time I chec, but, as far as I know, there are people still out there trying to keep the group together.  I’ll check in with the last person in charge and see what the status of the group is.

  3. So what is the best hotel for voyeurs from afar? I am planning to hit Vegas in October. What hotels will allow my binoculars to get great views of other hotel rooms/windows/balconies? Thanks.

    • I imagine that will depend on the binoculars. You’d probably need some pretty strong lenses to see much of anything for real in Vegas, and hope that someone is leaving their curtains open to give you a show. I’d look at google earth a little bit and see if you can pick a place that faces other hotels. One side of the Cosmo faces a lot of other hotels, and I imagine with enough lens-power you’d be able to see something in other hotels. Good luck!
