Author Interview with Sharazade

Author Interview with Sharazade

Q. What was your childhood ambition?

To be a lawyer. That was my dream from about age 4, until one day, as a junior in college, I suddenly awoke and said, “I must major in French literature.” And did.

Q. What ambitions do you still have?

I think I have desires rather than ambitions. There are still a lot of countries I’d like to visit. I want to take a trapeze class. I’d like to learn another foreign language. But if those things don’t happen, I won’t feel cheated or disappointed. In terms of my career and personal life, I feel satisfied with where I am. That’s not the same as feeling “finished” or complacent, of course. Continue reading

Write and publish a few books of course, then set up a publishing house that

Author Interview with Jenny Swallows

Q. What was your first job?

I was cashier at a little gas station in town…

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

I was the girl who used to spend all day in class composing funny little verses to amuse my friends, and they just started growing more and more sexual – I suppose as I did.  Then I carried on for my own amusement, until one day I sent one to another writer, Chrissie Bentley, after reading something she’d published online.  She e-mailed back to say she loved it, and encouraged me to start posting on the same site (  It was a little difficult at first, because I think I was the only person posting verse on the site and some readers were very hostile towards it, but I slowly found an audience and I’m now #26 on the readers’ Top 100 authors list.

Book & eBook Review – Temptations 1

Review by Jared Dean

Temptations 1 contains 7 short stories with something to appeal to most fans of well written erotica.

Whether your fantasy house-hunt is something like the one described by Elizabeth Cage in Bliss, or the daydream fantasies of Cyanne, there is something to make your blood run warmer.

The stories are all well written, with good characterisation, such as the repulsive teacher described in Kitti Bernetti’s ‘The School Reunion’ where the once ugly duckling has become a Swan and uses her feminine wiles to seduce, and then humiliate her former teacher. There is the taboo busting Confession by Kristina Wright, where a girlfriend services her boyfriend’s own father, or in the Window Cleaner’s boy, where all eyes are on the young man who cleans the office’s windows, but the narrator in Carmel Lockyer’s story only has eyes for his older, but clearly virile colleague.

In Confidante, Beverly Langland’s characters are looking for a new Slave and a Master, and the story tells of their auditioning each other, whilst in the collection’s closing story Two’s Company, Georgia Brown describes how the fantasy may not be everything that the man in the relationship wants or needs.

There is heat of all types in this collection, with none of the stories outstanding their welcome, or boring the audience. Hunt it down, it may make you think, as well as making you feel slightly warm.

Temptations is available as a book and ebook for Xcite Books

Author interview with Dorla Moorehouse

Interview with Dorla Moorehouse

1. What was your childhood ambition?

To be a professional ballerina. I ended up not having the correct body type or the talent.

2. What ambitions do you still have?

To teach ballroom dance and to publish a novel.

3. What was your first job?

I first worked as a counselor at a day camp. I spent four summers supervising, helping with crafts, making sure kids at lunch, and generally trying to keep everyone out of trouble. Clearly there was some aspect I liked, because I kept returning every year, but I never wanted to have kids after that. Continue reading

Author interview with Johnny Miles

Author interview with Johnny Miles
What was your childhood ambition?
I don’t think I ever really had a childhood ambition. I more had dreams and wishes for things I wanted to see happen, like world peace. The end of poverty, disease and famine. Yeah. I was a dreamer. Even now, at the risk of sounding like Miss America, I still want world peace and solutions that will end hunger, homelessness, diseases. Solutions to our dependency on oil would also be very cool!
More than anything, though, I would like to able to continue writing, getting published and make enough money so that I can pretty much do anything I want, whenever I want, and the continued health to enjoy all this wonderful life has to offer.
What ambitions do you still have?
To travel the world and expose myself to different cultures. Few things are as exhilarating as traveling to a place you’ve never been before. I’d love to be able to pick a location and write an erotic romance revolving around that locale, living there until I’m done with the story.
Barring that, I would love to someday be able to work with such brilliant and talented writers as Russell T. Davies and Armistead Maupin. Continue reading

Ebook – Untamed Hearts, Stallions Pride by Jenna Byrnes and Jude Mason

Review by Rachel Sparkes

Stallions Pride immerses you into the world of Brishen, the new King of the Horse Changelings, a nation of people who can transform into horses at will.  From the difficult death of his father at the beginning, to the awakening of his love for his best friend Jal, this book is beautifully written, switching very credibly from human to animal perspective.  From the start it oozes with romance and sex, every page hinting at the desire lurking beneath each character’s outward appearance.

The story focuses on Brishen, leader of the Horse tribe, and the difficulties he is facing in reuniting his people.  At the same time, it also introduces you to the incredible leaders of the Cougar, Bear and Wolf tribes, three men so throbbing with erotic masculinity that they practically jump off the page at you. Continue reading

eBook review – Taught by Stone Franks

Reviewed by The Cara Sutra

Stone Franks is a female author who usually writes horror stories. Reading this short story, it soon becomes apparent that horror is where her writing prowess lies!

The story is fast paced and descriptive. Action packed heavily lesbian sexual scenes and overtones. I would not call this erotica as much as extreme hardcore lesbian written porn.

There are many themes at play here, not merely the explicit butch/boi action but also an element of BDSM, with Dominance & submission, sadism & masochism, as well as humiliation, w/s, bondage and ageplay at work.

Seen vividly through the eyes of the main protagonist, the story seems not only to delve deeper into explicit raunchy filth with every new paragraph but practically leap.

The writing is at times rough and draft-like, with a spelling mistake or two sadly missed during any proof reading stage. After one final polish, I feel that this story would be worthy of a place on anyone’s bookshelf, real or cyber. Continue reading

ebook Review of Gay Love

Review by Carol Tierney

Gay Love is a collection of five short stories, each exploring a different aspect of male on male loving.

“Put a ring on it” is a sweet little story dealing with the transition from mates and football buddies to lovers. “Aduniad” describes a more established couple starting to develop a D/s dynamic. “Automatic Transmission” is an unusual tale of auto-fellatio and the bond it creates between two devotees of the skill. “Fisherman’s Friend” is a romantic tale of new love (and lust) growing out of heart break “One More Ride” quickly takes us from first glance to first fuck with a side order of gleaming chrome motorbike.

There’s something for everyone in this collection, whether you prefer slow paced romance or fast and filthy. My personal favourite was One More Ride, which captured that intoxicating mixture of excitement and fear that you only get at the start of a new relationship, but all the stories were well written and enjoyable to read.

eBook Review for the Adventures of Ambrose Horne by Chrissie Bentley

Review by Korben Rushe

This might be controversial, but for me, the best erotic fiction isn’t all about the sex. With no pun intended, it really should be about the full package. And that’s what Chrissie Bentley delivers in this collection of short stories which sway from the poignant to the ludicrously funny. And that package includes – rest assured – lots of hot Victorian action!

Set in the era already SO dominated by that other fictional detective, Ambrose Horne does a very good job at establishing himself as the sleuth who takes a refreshingly different approach to uncovering the truth – more often than not a horizontal one.

When I started reading this book, I worried that after the first few stories, the plots would grow a bit samey or contrived (as they did in that TV programme Rosemary and Thyme – after all, just how many murders can a couple of landscape gardeners unearth?!) but thankfully this is not the case here. In fact, not only has the author managed to create a charismatic hero (who has a Bond-esque way with the ladies) and some entertaining and testing plotlines, but she’s impressively highlighted a social truth: that almost everything in this life comes down to sex, greed or both.

I can’t wait to read the next two instalments of Ambrose Horne.
