Sacchi Green: Strong Women, Fairy Tales, and a Short Story Writer’s Lament

I like to write and read about strong women.  Probably all of us do, from time to time, but even if I start out trying to write a more submissive character, by the end she’ll be as strong-willed as any hero. In my very first long ago erotic short story (eventually published in Dream Lover, an anthology edited by Kristina Wright for Cleis Press,) the central character is a prostitute dominated and brutalized by her pimp, a woman who has…

Ever fantasize about a Viking? (Contest)

Conquests has been out for a while. It was the first of my self-edited and self-published anthologies. It was followed by Rogues, which will be followed by Blue Collar in June! I love short stories, and I love it even better when friends join me to complete a theme-based anthology, because it’s fun to see where our minds go! I worried that narrowing the theme of Conquests to only Viking stories would make the adventures very similar, but the authors…

Flora Dain: On “The Masseur”

A couple of years ago, I was looking forward to the most wonderful summer. At the start of it, my first novel was due out; two months later, my second; and two months after that, my third. A whole trilogy in one year! I was over the moon. One small thing—I also faced an operation. Nothing major but still scary, and guess what? My first ever launch date was the very same day as my op. Stuff happens. But the…

Lizzie Ashworth: The Origins of Valentine’s Day

Bet you didn’t know that Valentine’s Day got its start in the Roman Empire with some public BDSM. That’s right. The feast of Lupercalia involved women lining up along the streets so men could run along and whip them with strips of animal hide (preferably goat or dog). The ritual was supposed to increase female fertility and there’s actually no telling how far back in history this tradition might have started. A lottery followed the whipping with women’s names drawn…

Cashmere S. Jackson: Growing is Hard (And Not Necessarily the Fun Way)

First, thank you Delilah and Delilah readers for receiving me on this blog. I am not one to make resolutions.  Like so many, in the past, I firmly declared my goals in the first month of the year and promptly forgot them by the third month.  But this year a Facebook friend posed the question: How will you grow this year?  This question goes beyond resolutions, although I realize that part of the reasons people make resolutions is to inspire…

Lizzie Ashworth: The Dane’s Bride (Free Read)

January 2017! A new year and new adventures, hopefully good ones, await us. Best of all, for the not so good days, we’ve got books! Reading takes us away from the present moment and immerses us in pleasure. My mission today is to provide a time of reading pleasure for you. One of my personal favorites in writing and reading romance is a steamy historical. Men wielding swords, their warrior bodies muscled and scarred—whew, what’s not to like? More than…
