• 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.

  • 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."

  • 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!

  • My story "Small Town Immortals" is in LampLight

    If you grew up in a small town, especially in a rural area, you know the desolation certain nights can bring - streetlights swaying in the wind on empty streets, abandoned storefronts, the absolute silence after midnight. You also might know how such towns can feel like a trap, and it's that feeling that motivated me to write "Small Town Immortals" - now in the latest issue of LampLight.

    It's very much an autumn story, involving a forbidden relationship between two ex-high school classmates who don't talk much about the fact that her father killed his father in a long ago barfight. But when the town legend about a pond that brings back the dead turns out to be true, it becomes an opportunity to settle the family feud - and decide whether to escape the town or succumb to inertia.

    You can get it here.

  • What are you doing for holiday vacation?

    Because I have a suggestion: reading the almost 400 pages of quality smut that is The Big Book of Submission, vol. 2. Yes, it's literally big. With 69 stories of "the thrills of spanking, bondage, power dynamics, service, exhibitionism, erotic adventure, and much more," you will have more than enough dirty reading to distract you from travel snafus and annoying relatives.

    While most of the stories in the book are from the submissives' POV, my story "Warning" is told from the domme's. What is it about? The transformation two people can experience when they begin "experimenting" with female domination and find it takes them somewhere they never expected.

    The print book isn't out until 9 January, 2018, but you can get the ebook on 19 December - the perfect read for snowbound days and airport layovers.

    In addition to Amazon, you can find all your buying options right here.

  • "Haunted" is out

    Mofo Pubs, the newest kid on the literary erotica block, released its latest collection "Haunted" today - and I'm pleased to say I have two stories in the book.

    "Haunted" is described as a "literary erotica anthology exploring the erotic charge of that which is persistently there. Tales of ghosts, memory, obsession." I initially wanted to submit for this anthology because I love reading and writing ghost stories and figured this would be a rare opportunity to combine erotica and ghosts.

    As it turned out, I submitted two stories that have zero supernatural elements. "Pinup Boys" is the story of a woman who haunts online porn sites at night looking for footage of a long-ago fling; "All My Love Stories Are About You" describesthe persistent pain of a failed relationship and the delusions of a second chance. One of these may possibly be a bit autobiographical - but I'm not saying which one.

    I'm just starting to work my way through the book and so far it's great. We're just days from Halloween - if you haven't tried a Mofo collection yet, consider picking this up.
