L is for Leather
Monday, March 3rd, 2008 Mar 3rd, 2008 leave a response

A while ago, when I was writing ‘Roping the Wind‘, a call came out from the amazing Ms. Alison Tyler for Cleis Press for short story submissions to an erotic alphabet series. The one that caught my imagination was “L is for Leather” because, if you’re read Roping, you’ll know that Jay Turner makes cowboy boots and Helen Kinsale finds the whole leather thing a total turn on.

So I set out to write my first straight erotica short story, Sunday Service which was kind of like my characters taking their whole fascination with leather into their own little fantasy world, although in the story I give no time period, place, detailed setting or character names. It was quite interesting to write something that didn’t require a happy ending or an ending at all really πŸ™‚

It was a real thrill when I heard my story had not only got into the anthology but was first up in the book. I love the cover of this book. It reminds me of the 1950’s poster girls, with a naughty kink!

    Very hot cover! And having read Roping the Wind, I’m extremely interested in this short story. When is it coming out?

    I love Sunday Service! Reviewing L is for Leather for our site right now, but just wanted to let you know what a great piece I think it is.

    Louisa-if you click on the Cleis Press link I think it takes you right to the ‘buy’ page-so I’m assuming it is out-I was told Feb 28th πŸ™‚

    Thank you Porn Librarian-what a great name!

    It’s a divine story, Kate! You should be chuffed. (Did I say that right?)
