Sudden Sex: 69 Sultry Short Stories edited by Alison Tyler
Alison Tyler + Cleis Press + flash erotica = a winning combination! Sudden Sex is one of several excellent short-short erotica collections edited by Alison and published by Cleis. Since short-short fiction is one of my favorite forms to write I'm delighted to be included. My story is a subtly humorous D/s tale called "Cookie." It's got something for everyone! If you like Sudden Sex, you might also want to check out the best-selling Frenzy and its "sequel," Got a Minute? as well. Here's my review of Kiki DeLovely's contribution to this book.
The Big Book of Bondage: Sexy Tales of Erotic Restraint edited by Alison Tyler
I was really excited when The Big Book of Bondage came out. There are some truly exceptional stories in here -- some of the best erotic fiction I've read. Also, I went on my own personal journey in writing my contribution. (Listen to me reading the opening of "River of Beauty.") And this book certainly lives up to its name: It's big! It's filled with great and diverse stories by many of the best erotica writers of today.
Periphery, edited by Lynne Jamneck, re-release in eBook format by Untreed Reads
This is one of the anthologies I'm proudest to be a part of. The stories are diverse and imaginative. This is lesbian science fiction with an erotic component. Some are romance. Some are fetchingly smutty. Some are terrific stories that just happen to have a sex scene or two. A lot of it is dystopic, but excitingly so. Well worth a read. I'm so glad it's out as an ebook now. Buy it and/or read an excerpt from the introduction here. Read my interview about Periphery with the editor, Lynne Jamneck!
Best Lesbian Erotica 2012, edited by Kathleen Warnock and Sinclair Sexsmith
What makes this edition of BLE consistent with others I've contributed to? It's full of hot, well-written, well-edited stories. What's unique about this year's volume? Kathleen Warnock says it best in the foreword: "This year's collection has a chronological arc to it. It starts with the story of two young girls in love: one embraces who she is, the other panics at the unknown. And so it goes through lifetimes: people fall in love some more, break up, have brief encounters, know each other better than anyone else, heal their wounds, have families, take vacations, find comfort, grow older, care for each other, continue their pursuits, and keep on keeping on." Includes a smart and passionate introduction by co-editor, Sinclair Sexsmith, and stories by Lea DeLaria, DL King, Kiki DeLovely, Xan West, Ily Goyanes, Anna Watson, and more. Pick up a copy of Best Lesbian Erotica 2012.
