Renowned erotic author Lucy Felthouse shares some of her erotic writing inspiration in this fantastic feature:

“I’ve become a fan of spy thrillers, both on TV and in the written form. And I love me a man in uniform, too. So when I first watched Strikeback: Project Dawn (yes, I watched it before the first series), I was hooked. The storylines are exciting, the two main male characters are seriously damn sexy, and their relationship is prickly, but they respect each other. So when I decided to write my first m/m story, a British military story, I decided that those two particular hotties would be my inspiration.”

In addition, several of my erotic writing news features include erotic book giveaways, and others have free sexy excerpts from published erotic novels.

NaNoWriMo – Everything you need to know about the November Novel Writing Challenge

“Everyone has a book inside them,” the late Christopher Hitchens famously declared. Will your book remain hidden, or are you ready to share it with the world? NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. It takes place every November and it’s your chance to let your writing light shine. With a set time to write your book, you’ll be more likely to knuckle down and get those words out of the deepest, darkest recesses of your mind and on to the page. Your goal is the admittedly ambitious task of writing a 50,000 word novel (well, a rough draft of one) by 11:59 PM, November 30th. Breaking the mountain down into manageable daily amounts will ensure that you smash this novel writing goal.

Erotic Book News: Alex Jordaine’s ‘Bound to the Mistress’ & ‘Mistress Absolute’ Femdom Erotica

As most of you will know, I have a personal interest in all things FemDom. As a Domme and Mistress in the BDSM scene it was genuinely thrilling to find an erotica author who writes erotic fiction based around the thrilling power dynamics of Female Dominance and male submission. I have been a supporter of Alex Jordaine’s work in this area for quite some time. The seventh book in his ‘Mistress’ collection of novels is entitled ‘Bound to the Mistress’ and was released in April this year. Although this is his 7th book in the collection, the novels are all stand-alone and so can be read in any order.

The Act Itself: A brand new print magazine devoted to the world of erotica

I was delighted to receive the debut issue of The Act Itself recently, free of charge in exchange for an honest overview and communication to my erotica loving audience here at Cara Sutra. My first impression upon opening the discreet, well wrapped package was the size of the magazine. Instead of little more than a leaflet which I was expecting (print is very expensive), I held in my hands an A4, glossy leafed book, rather than a magazine. With 150 pages to leaf through (which are admittedly in black and white unlike the outer cover) I knew that this was a magazine which would easily see any avid fan of erotica through four months until the next issue arrived on the mat.

Eroticon 2014: Facing the challenge of public speaking

I’m worried about hearing the right words when people ask questions. That’s quite before the fact that I just don’t like my voice. Writing seems to comfortable, compared; when you’re reading words you can imagine the perfect pitch and tone of voice. Never any hesitation or stuttering, no breaking voice, no awkward pauses. No scrabbling around in the corners of your mind for the right way to say this out loud.

The Infamous Blog Tour: Writers and their Writing Process

As I was schooled in the days where computers were a ‘new’ thing that only the posh kids had, I did all my coursework and exams with pen and paper - actually giving myself a ganglion on my right wrist which I still have to this day. Trust me to study all the heavy writing subjects: English Literature, Philosophy and Theology. I believe this is why I need to form my writing pieces with pen and paper first; writers’ quirk borne of familiarity.
