My Treasured Tropes, #1: The Dubious Deal

Four reviews and a question.I am starting a new series here that I’m calling My Treasured Tropes. Instead of reviewing one book or film, I’ll be gathering together several works that center around or include one plot device that I find fascinating or arousing. (Mostly arousing). A trope is not necessarily a cliché. It can…

New story out: “Paying Attention”

I am honored and pleased as punch that the new anthology Erotic Teasers from Cleis Press, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, is out today! Along with work from sixteen other excellent authors, my story “Paying Attention,” a tasty little tale of denial and domestic discipline, is included. Featuring stories of denial vs. impatience, Erotic Teasers…

I’m a Slave to The Slave: Laura Antoniou’s Marketplace, Book 2

The Slave. 2010, Circlet Press; 2001, Mystic Rose Books; 1994, Masquerade Books.Mmm…Robin. Until the superlative Inheritor came along, The Slave, the second novel in the series, was my favorite of them all, hands down (when my hands weren’t otherwise occupied). Because The Inheritor has largely replaced it as favorite for reasons other than sheer hotness,…

New Story Out: “Rain Dog”

I am honored and pleased as punch to announce that my story “Rain Dog” is included in the new fanfic anthology No Safewords II, edited by Ms. Antoniou. I…

In that creative gap between cheap and brief “stag films” forced underground by strict obscenity laws and the oncoming aesthetically cheapening effects of videotape, many a beauteous and beatific porn film blossomed.…

New Interview

The lovely and amazingly prolific Fiona McVie has posted a new interview with me on her authorsinterviews site. A few of these questions were more difficult than I’d expected them to be. I am, after all, rather fond of talking about myself and my work. 😀 See the interview here.

Perfect Strangers, by Dorothy Freed

Perfect Strangers: A Memoir of the Swinging 70’s, 2018, self-published.We have here a very sexy but unusual book: an erotic memoir, by an author best known for her heavily BDSM-oriented short stories based on her own experiences, which contains no more “kink proper” than one vague mention of the relative merits of scarfs versus police…

The Marketplace, Book 1, Laura Antoniou.

2010, Circlet Press; 2000, Mystic Rose Books; 1993, Masquerade Books (writing as Sara Adamson). If anyone out there questions my love for The Marketplace—both this first book and the series—they should read the dedication page in my novel (which you should do, anyway). Along with Pauline Réage, A.N. Roquelaure and Molly Weatherfield, Marketplace creator Laura…
