The Seductive Succubus Blog Tour

Hello Everyone and welcome to the first day of the Seductive Succubus Blog Tour for my anthology, Seductress: Erotic Tales of Immortal Desire!
I suppose, being the editor, it makes sense that I kick it off.  We’ve got a lot of interesting stops along the way and I’ll tell you about them shortly.  First, though, I’d like to tell you a little about the book.

Seductress is first and foremost a book about succubi.  It makes sense, right?  After all, a succubus is a creature built around carnality.  She’s so sexy and seductive, no one can say no to her.  She’s made that way for a reason; she needs sex to live.  She needs to absorb another’s culmination of sexual ecstasy, (read: orgasm) or she will fade away and cease to exist.  It’s sad, but true.

I’m sure you can imagine how difficult it must be to find willing human males (and females) to have sex with, especially when you’re drop-dead gorgeous. 

Yeah.  Me neither… Hence the reason it makes sense to put an erotica anthology together around the subject.

Second, and here’s why it makes sense for me to put such an anthology together: succubi, by their very nature, are dominant.  Yeah, even I didn’t see that one coming.  Well, ya live and learn.  But it makes sense.  She needs what she needs and so she directs the action to make sure she gets it.  Sure, she can, and sometimes does, let the guy think he’s in charge.  Well, you know, a lot of them like that, so I suppose it makes her life easier, but make no mistake: she’s the boss.

So, what will you find in Seductress: Erotic Tales of Immortal Desire?  Here is a small sampling of some of the hotness between the covers:

Evan Mora’s fiendish “Starcrossed” casts Romeo and Juliet as the undead, forever cruising for what they crave.

Kaysee Renee Robichaud’s “A Surprising Summons” is both extremely erotic and heartbreakingly painful at the same time.

Aurelia T. Evans’s “Harvest” is all a submissive boy’s heart needs.  Well, maybe not his heart, exactly.  Perhaps something a bit lower down.

Trust me, you want this book.  

But don’t take my word for it.  Check out the rest of the blog tour for different takes on the subject.  You’ll visit some of the authors, fans of erotica and people who like their stories a little on the dark side.  There’ll be an interview or two with me, as well.  I, for one, can’t wait to read each post.

The Next Big Thing

Jolynn Raymond (http://jolynnraymond.com/) tagged me on The Next Big Thing!  Thanks Jolynn.  By the way, your book sounds fantastic.

The Next Big Thing is a "freeze tag" style blog hop that's been going around all over the place.  If you get tagged, fill out the questions on your own blog with regard to your upcoming writing project, then tag five additional authors, linking to their blogs or websites, and don't forget to let them know they've been tagged.


1. What is the working title of your book?

The Actual title is Under Her Thumb: Erotic Stories of Female Domination

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?

The vast majority of my work is femdom and I've wanted to do a femdom anthology since I began editing for Cleis Press and the time was finally right!

3. What genre does your book fall under?

BDSM Erotica/Female Domination

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

As an anthology of short stories, I can't really answer this question.  I suppose, thinking about my own story in the book, "Hound and Hare," how about Helena Bonham Carter and Ethan Hawke.  I don't know, that's sort of 'spur of the moment.'

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Twenty stories of female domination, curated by D. L. King, with a foreword by Midori, from the sweetly romantic to the scarily hot. 

6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Under Her Thumb: Erotic Stories of Female Domination is published by Cleis Press.

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I only wrote one of the short stories, but if you're interested in knowing how long it took me to edit the book, from the initial call for submissions to the final corrected galleys -- about six months.

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

You could compare this book to another of my favorite anthologies, Please, Ma'am: Erotic Stories of Male Submission, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and also published by Cleis Press. 

9. Who or What inspired you to write this book?

I'm a dominant woman in real life and I like to read femdom, as well as write it.  As I mentioned earlier, as a writer, it's my predominant theme so I desperately wanted to edit an anthology of nothing but femdom.

10. What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?

Whether you're male or female, if strong women make you weak in the knees or, if you are a dominant woman and love to see a man or woman worshipping at your feet, you're going to want to read this book!
