Book Review – The Book Club by J Manx


The Book Club

This the story of Helen and Joe’s meeting with Mike and Sarah and their introduction to The Book Club, a private swingers club exclusively for the rich and gorgeous.

As fantasies go it’s a popular one. Unlimited and uninhibited sex with people who are good looking, sophisticated and cultured; and of course in fantasy we can all imagine that we are the beautiful people too. For me though it’s just a bit too far fetched and cliched. It’s hardly a surprise that those plastic fantasy people who already have everything get to have great sex too. They don’t even need to worry about safe sex or jealousy because those don’t have a place in their perfect world.

Putting those objections aside, it’s not badly done. The prose flows nicely making it very readable. The sex scenes are suitably hot and it gets the pulse racing nicely. I particularly liked the scene where Helen reminisces about their first try at partner swapping with a Norwegian couple, although the dialogue was cringe worthy there was a real sense of the sexual tension building and Helen and Joe getting caught up in the moment, I have to admit the chances are that in the same situation I’d be making bad jokes too.

If you don’t mind the total escapism and like the idea of swapping partners or group sex it’s definitely worth a read.

Author Interview with Stone Franks


Interview with Stone Franks

1. How did you end up being an erotic writer?
I was sent an e-mail with lots of different calls for submissions and one of them was for lesbian erotica and I just thought “I could do that”. The deadline was only a week away and I managed it, so I realised that it was quite easy to bang them out quickly pulp style, which appeals to me. I once read about a guy writing bondage pulps who would make all the titles up and advertise them, then only write the actual story if he made a sale. That’s what I’m into, writing as a craft.

Book Review: Blank by Sommer Marsden


Reviewed by Lucy Felthouse. Find her on Twitter and Facebook.

Kyle is a gay man who’s had his heart broken. His way of coping is to blank everything out. And his way of doing that is plenty of sex and alcohol, and sometimes both at the same time. He’s determined to screw around to fill the void in his life without getting attached to anyone.

Author Interview with DL King


Interview with D. L. King

Q: What was your first job?

My first paying job, at the age of 16, was selling concessions in a movie theatre.  This was back when popcorn didn’t break you…  The best thing about the job was that I got to see all the movies and eat all the popcorn I wanted, for free.  My boss liked his hot dog with that advertising picture swish of mustard—he was bizarre.  Probably the most interesting (and formative) aspect was the location of the theatre.  It was downtown, close to the bus station and all that entails.  The hookers used to come in for hot dogs on their dinner breaks.  Their clothes sense left a lot to be desired, but they were sweet.

Q: How did you end up being an erotic writer?

I’ve no idea.  Really.  It just sort of happened.  I sat down at the computer to write the next great thing—and fem dom came out.  Go figure! Continue reading

Author interview with Kat Black


Interview with Kat Black
Q. What was your childhood ambition?
I have a vague memory that my very first ambition was to be a princess – what can I say, I was born a delusional romantic. I’ll let you guess how well I did with achieving that aim but let’s just say that luckily I always had a back-up plan. To be a writer.

Q. How did you end up being an erotic writer?
From years of being an avid erotic reader. I don’t believe that in any genre you can be successful at the latter without having been dedicated to the former. Continue reading

Interview with Shermaine Williams

Q. What was your childhood ambition?

As cheesy as it sounds, I did always want to be a writer. There was a few occasions when I strayed from the path or imagined that I would have multiple careers: teacher, lawyer, lion tamer.

Q. What ambitions do you still have?

As well as writing erotic fiction, I also want to publish some ‘mainstream’ fiction. I also like the idea of journalism. Continue reading
