WIWIWYG (What I Write Is What You Get)

AHSM46N

About five times a year, I receive either comments or emails asking me why I don’t write erotic fiction on a slew of topics: “why don’t you write about wife-swapping, cougars, cock and ball torture, shoe fetishism, choking, violet wands, water-sports…?” While I realize that most of the world has come to view erotic fiction…

The Prison of the Photographed Self

However, what is clear is that, beneath the surface, there is a pretty massive schism as to what we are calling ‘erotica’. Historically, erotica,…

Why Publishing Doesn’t Matter To Me Anymore

81482_editorletter_md

If you’ve hit my website before, you might be wondering why I have most of my short stories and even long series online, instead of in published anthologies. If you take a look at my short works in print page, you will probably notice that in the last year, I’ve submitted almost nothing to editors.…
