  • Best Lesbian Erotica Tour

    Welcome to my stop on the Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year blog tour. Hopefully you've been able to follow along with some of the other authors' posts; if not, I've listed them all below.

    A little about my story "Ninjutsu," which opens the collection. I wrote this story a really long time ago (2013?) and sold it right away for an anthology that was never published. It hung out in limbo for 3 years and then we finally got word the book wasn't happening, and all stories were freed. I submitted for the most recent call for BLE and it finally found its forever home.

    What it's about: a woman with a jones for anonymous sex. Anonymous plane sex being her favorite. There's a world of difference between a long daytime flight and an international red-eye night flight, especially when you feel like you're the only one awake on the plane. Our thoughts go to so many interesting places - and this story goes exactly where you think it does.

    Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year comes out today, so don't miss it - it's the perfect reprieve from your hectic holiday schedule. You can get it here. You can also check out a nice review or two.

    And don't miss the rest of the blog tour... if you comment here or on another post, you're eligible to win a copy of the book.

  • It's a Best Lesbian Erotica Extravaganza

    We're just minutes from December, which means that it's the season for snowflakes, Christmas cookies, crowded stores and hot sapphic tales. Yes, Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, vol. 3, is about to come out on December 11 - and there's quite a lot going on.

    Such as we (authors and fearless editor Sacchi Green) will be talking about the book in the Facebook group LesFic on Saturday, December 8 at 9 a.m. PST. / Noon EST. I know that's a bit early for we.West Coast girls but please drop in and say hi. I'm not on Facebook but I will make an appearance through a friend's account.

    Some of us (not me) will be at the annual Drunken Careening Writers reading as well. That's on December 20 at KGB Bar at 85 East 4th Street, New York. I always want to go to this but I never can because I fly into NY a few days later for Christmas every year. At any rate, it'll be a good time.

    Finally, both Publisher's Weekly and Library Journal weighed in with reviews. The verdict: Library Journal loved the collection, Publisher's Weekly was more reserved with their praise. Both had nice things to say about my story "Ninjutsu": PW called it "a strong opener made of pure mile-high anonymous sex fantasy" and LJ said, "Valerie Alexander’s dark, heady “Ninjutsu” serves as a phenomenal introduction, as an unnamed narrator with aerial fantasies searches hungrily for a mile-high club companion on her flight to Hawaii."

    Not until I read those reviews did I realize my inexplicable failure to use the phrase "mile high" even once in a story about airplane sex.

    Oh, and we'll be kicking off a blog tour in December. And if you comment on any of the posts, you'll be entered to win an ebook copy of the anthology! Here are the dates:

  • Dark Rainbow is out

    You can get it on Amazon and the Riverdale Ave Books site.... And you can also read a nice review from Drew Rowsome, who said my story "riffs on Arsenic and Old Lace, Grey Gardens, Tennessee Williams and adds an exceptionally hot lesbian seduction scene. Subverting the southern gothic in a delightful but far from comic way."

    Happy Halloween!

  • Celebrate Halloween with Dark Rainbow - an anthology of queer erotic horror

    The nights are growing chill, pumpkins are crowding front porches and Spirit Halloweens are filling every strip mall. Yes, it's officially the scariest season of the year - and my personal favorite holiday. So I'm especially pleased to announce a terrifying new anthology coming your way that ticks all your favorite boxes: queer erotic horror.

    That would be Dark Rainbow from Riverdale Ave Books, a collection of horror stories that feature a variety of authors across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Just take a look at the table of contents:

    Pip and Estella - Valerie Alexander

    Goldilocks and her Undead Bear - Julianne Snow

    Think of Me - Lindsay King-Miller

    Odd Man Out - Derek Clendening

    Affliction - Spinster Eskie

    His Type - Sèphera Girón

    The Life Model - Jim Towns

    The God Modulation - Kimberly Gondrella

    Monday - Benjamin Johnson

    The Dark Gem - Lisi Damette

    The Christ of St. Jozef Church Angel - Leigh McCoy

    Eye Contact - Jeff C. Stevenson

    Broken Lines of Salt and Flesh - Robert E. Furey

    The Grave of Lilith - Harry F. Rey

    The God of Small Favours - H. P. Medina

    My story "Pip and Estella" is, as you may have guessed, a lesbian and bloody take on your favorite novel from ninth grade English. I have always been somewhat obsessed with both Miss Havisham and Estella from Great Expectations and now I've presented my own Southern Gothic versions of them: Miss Havisham as a murderous retired supermodel and Estella as the femme fatale who discovers she'd rather have Pip the hot butch gardner than the rich men her mother wants her to marry.

    It's out on October 18. More details to come!

  • Colp: The Passage of Time Is Out

    Gypsum Sound Tales is putting out a new "anything goes" anthology called Colp - an anthology where each issue has a theme, but the stories could be from any genre. The first issue is called The Passage of Time and deals (as you might expect) with the transcience of our human experience; how we deal with the passing of time, whether it's longing for the past, anticipating the future or finding ways to manipulate what is ultimately just another dimension.

    My story "Next Door" deals with both the first and the last. After a doctoral student loses her father to a car accident, she's left alone in the world, her sister and mother having died years earlier. But the neighbor who hit him - a practicing witch she's never trusted - offers her a chance to visit her family again in an alterate timeline where they're still alive.

    You can get it here.

  • Candy Lovers is out

    It's here: the sweetest (literally) erotica anthology you will ever read. Rachel Kramer Bussell has published Candy Lovers, a collection of 35 stories that all revolve around something sugary. Just look at the titles in the TOC below; you'll see mention of ice cream, cupcakes, honey, candy apples, chocolate, cinnamon, mulled wine, bananas and well, you get the idea.

    (The title of my story "Heaven on a Saturday Night" doesn't give up its subject, which is red velvet cake as a player in a BDSM double dom/kitchen sub scene. Cake sitting, spankings, 3 ways and spatulas, it's all there.)

    While I'm a terrible cook, I'm a very good baker - enough that people will ask me to bake for their parties and events. In recent years I've tried to master gluten free baking, being a health conscious sort, but that's basically been a failed endeavor. I always come back to the classics and nothing pleases me like making the perfect Star Wars cake or almond cookie. So I was thrilled when Rachel asked me to submit something for this anthology. As she puts it, "If you ask me, sex and candy have a lot in common. Both can make us lose our minds a little, getting into a frenzy where all we care about is tasting it, swallowing it, having it that very moment. Sex and candy make us reckless, wanton, hungry, horny."

    To see what you'll be reading, the Table of Contents is:

  • Big Book of Submission is out

    Happy Winter Solstice. We're not getting the print copy of Cleis's newest anthology, "The Big Book of Submission vol. 2" until January 9 - but you can get a digital copy now to spice up your holiday nights.

    My story "Warning" is told from the dominant's POV but most of the stories here are told from the submissives' perspective - what the blurb calls "arousing tales that delve deep into the thrills of spanking, bondage, power dynamics, service, exhibitionism, erotic adventure, and much more." Here's a nice review. You can also read a sentence or two from each story here - yes, all 69.

    Happy holidays!
