‘What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.’
– J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
This is a very quick self-promotional post to announce something that I am SO excited about! The outstanding sex blogging conference, Eroticon, has published an anthology with Resonance Press containing stories and essays by the extraordinary sex and erotic fiction writers that will be attending the conference…including me!! And it’s really good!
The official blurb…
Identity showcases a diverse collection of personal essays and stories by over twenty sex toy reviewers, non-fiction sex writers and erotic fiction authors. It boasts a breadth of talent from a range of new and established writers alike, all of whom are attendees of the 2017 Eroticon conference in London. It’s a sex-positive anthology, moving from the heteronormative to show a truly representative cross-section of erotic identity.
In this unique compilation, the central theme of identity is explored from many different angles. Some authors describe their personal identity as a writer, others how their fictional characters explore who they are through sex. Yet other writers examine the impact of erotic identity, sexuality or personality and how this is celebrated or for some, must remain hidden.
Identity tackles intimate topics such as BDSM, bisexuality and gender dysphoria with an honesty and clarity borne of experience, as well as stories of desire, erotic awakening and more.
Edited by Anna Sky and with cover art by Tabitha Rayne, Identity contains work by Velvl Ryder, Malin James, Eve Ray, Marie Rebelle, Meg-John Barker, Teresa Caves, sub-Bee, Emily Jacob, Jenny Guérin, Ella Scandal, Alun Norley, Ina Morata, Jerusalem “Jaime” Mortimer, Miss Ruby Rousson, cleareyedgirl, Heather Day, The Other Livvy, Zak Jane Keir, F.F. Sexton, Zoë King, Charlie Powell, BibulousOne, Emmeline Peaches and Girl on the Net.
So BUY IT!
The anthology is available here. It will be published on 4th March to coincide with the start of the conference and will be available in paperback and e-copy.
If you pre-order an e-copy now, it’s just 99p! Honestly, it’s a bargain!!
This is such a wonderful project that is showcasing so many fabulous authors, some of whom have not been published before, and I am so so proud to be included. Anna Sky, Molly and Girl on the Net have created something truly wonderful for the sex blogging community and it would be amazing if you could support us all. And if you like it, please review it (or if you don’t, but I’m less encouraging of those…!) Thanks!!
OK, sales pitch done! Normal service will resume… (Have you pre-ordered it yet??)
