Countdown to Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 5!

Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year Volume 5 comes out on December 8th!

Here’s what’s out there so far.

Talking to Bex & Kate on the Dildorks!

I’ve been on the Dildorks podcast before, and Bex and Kate are always so fun to talk to. I feel like we could chat much longer than we do — always a good sign. Here’s our chat specifically about Best Lesbian Erotica, but also about a dozen other things.

Teasing the full book …

With some lovely images from Cleis Press! Thanks for making these pull quote samples from each story in the book.

Interview & Review on Between Our Thighs

Check out the podcast interview over on Between Our Thighs, and read their review, too:

While the apparent observation of Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 5 is that it offers an overall feel of sexual exploration, it goes beyond just that. As Sexsmith describes in the collection’s introduction, “The characters in this book explore all kinds of erotic encounters, finding refuge, finding connection, and finding themselves.” Each new story, each new character introduced to, provides you with a new outlook on sexual exploration, personal desires, and the many facets of human sexuality and attraction.

Happy Hour and upcoming Book Club on the Feminist Erotica Podcast

I joined Princess, Karen, and Jera from the Feminist Erotica podcast on one of their happy hour chats, and though I was embarrassingly late, it was a great conversation and I’m grateful for all their questions and thoughtful ideas. Looking forward to digging in to their whole season 1, where they explore what “feminist erotica” even means. Best Lesbian Erotica will be their January book club pick, so get a copy and come join us!

Speaking of getting a copy …

Want your copy signed? Get it in my own store.

I set up a shop here on Sugarbutch which includes my books, the things rife has made, and some other goodies. It doesn’t have everything, it’s still missing the pronoun magnetic pins that we made with leather vests in mind, and it’s missing items from The Kink Store that we set up on Etsy through Printful. I’ll get those imported eventually. Meanwhile, though, if you want a copy of BLE v5 autographed, you can get it in my little store, and if you want to add on BLE v4, it’ll be a discount for both of them.

More to come!

Including some online readings for the book. Stay tuned!
