A blog where I write about books, movies, things erotic, and things mundane. There is so much more to writing erotica than the physical interaction. Join me in my exploration of writing erotica and enjoying life.
What's not to love about this gorgeous cover of "If Mom's Happy; Stories of Erotic Mothers?" I'm so excited to be part of this collection. It will be available on May 1st, 2017, just in time for mother's day. If you are interested, and don't want to forget about it,...
Yes. You read that right. We're ready to accept submissions to Blood in the Rain 3, to be released in October 2017. If you've got an erotic vampire tale to share, it's time to get cranking. Or editing if you've already got one written. Check out the official call at...
I'm horrible at blogging. Or updating. I hate this part of the writing business because of the technical stuff involved. I like to write. And I love to read. And I love connecting with people who enjoy the same. If you want to receive updates via email, please...
I know, Blood in the Rain 2 is about to hit the shelves and the audible for BITR 1 is finally available? I've blogged about the audiobook process a few times. The fact that our studio was available one evening a week for a couple of hours, plus our talent work 'real...
I get this question about a lot of different things. "I thought you started that book five years ago." and "Weren't you knitting that last time I saw you?" are variations on a theme. Most recently, I've been pinged a few times by folks who are excited to share the...
The audible version of the Blood in the Rain is ALMOST finished being recorded. Did you know that professional voice talent is only allowed to work for three hours? Did you know that one story takes approximately an hour to record but takes about five hours to edit?...
My first attempt at editing an anthology came out last week. When my co-editor, Mary Trepanier, and I first sent out the call for submissions, I didn't know what to expect. And, I've been asked by friends who know I write erotica, "Why vampire erotica?" My answer is,...
It’s finally here. Yay! That this is the first story I’ve written with homo-erotic elements makes it extra exciting for me. Most of the stories I’ve had published have been pretty much straight hetero and mostly vanilla. Okay, Birthday Boy, (Cheeky Spanking Stories) has a touch of Discipline in it, but is still pretty tame. Being a cis-female, I have focused almost all of my stories on the female characters in my story. They are virtually all female POV, so this was a fun stretch for me. The thing is, this is an AWESOME collection of stories. So, it’s worth getting if you want some quick hot moments over the next few weeks. 69 stories that are likely to get you off in many happy ways. (Disclosure: Click the link below to purchase, and I actually might make a couple of pennies.)
If you live in the Bay area, check this reading out! No, I won’t be there, but ten of the other authors will be–it sure sounds like fun. I love going to author readings because you get to hear their voice and how they punctuate and stress their words. Sometimes it changes how I experience a story completely.
From a review on Amazon:
In the foreword of this hefty anthology, Barbara Carrellas writes:
“Orgasm is an adventure, a surprise. No matter how many orgasms you’ve had–or how few–the potential for new and different orgasms is just one erotic encounter away.”
This collection of short, powerful stories, each under 1,200 words, shows how many different routes there are to the ultimate goal of climax and release. There are stories by relatively well-known erotic writers and by newbies in the field, but each of these stories is a polished gem of condensed excitement. Here are stories about long-married couples reviving the spark of their honeymoon, sex workers and their clients, same-sex couples, gender-bending threesomes, near-strangers getting to know each other in ways that will never be repeated, and solitary masturbators.
In “Hard Knocks” by Malin James, a woman tells her boyfriend: “You absolutely cannot make someone come just by spanking them.” He responds to this challenge by showing her that spanking alone, done with enough skill, can indeed lead to orgasm. In “Book Lover” by Donna George Storey, a woman has a tryst in a bookstore, where she is pushed over the edge by the smell of a well-used book. In “Beer and Orgasms” by Jeremy Edwards, a woman is only able to let herself orgasm when she can no longer resist the urge to pee; her understanding boyfriend arranges for her to do this without ruining the furniture.
Several of these stories involve the orgasmic stimulus of music. In “All You Do Is Play” by Annabeth Leong, a clever woman shows her musician lover how to “play” in more than one sense. In “Piano Man” by A.M. Hartnett, a male musician brings a female fan to ecstasy after his performance before they have even left the club. In the more over-the-top “By the Beat” by T. Fox Dunham, “Mr. Wolf” helps “Ms. Peacock” to reach orgasm with the help of a metronome, a relentless device that can’t lose its rhythm.
I’m looking forward to the release of this anthology. My story, The Big Cat, is my first piece with homoerotic elements to be published. I’ve shied away from writing m/m erotica mostly because I don’t have a penis. I reminded myself that writing is all about fantasy and making things up–so why not let go of my pre-conceived worries about having the appropriate genitalia and have fun with it?
