Erotic Writing News

Interested in what’s new from the world of erotic authors, erotic fiction and sex writing? Welcome to the Erotic Writing News area of the Cara Sutra sex blog, dedicated to keeping you up to date with everything new from the world of erotic literature.

You’ll discover some erotic writing themed events, such as Eroticon, NaNoWriMo, Smut UK and Erotic World Book Day. Plus, there are tips on how to sell your erotic books at trade fairs and events. There are websites featured where you can enjoy reading through submitted erotic stories and discover new erotic authors. Find out more about the authors you already love, in revealing interviews. And don’t miss the features highlighting erotic books that you seriously should not miss.

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.

50 Shades Better: Real Stories of Submission & Bondage from Alison Tyler

Erotic author Alison Tyler has written and edited some of the hottest BDSM novels and anthologies around. Her sultry short stories appear in more than 100 anthologies, and she is a prolific editor of bestselling erotic anthologies like Twisted, Bound for Trouble, and The Big Book of Bondage. Alison was writing bondage and submission tales long before the words 50 Shades of Grey were even dreamed, before Jamie and Dakota enjoyed Red Room spankings on cinema screens around the world. Alison Tyler’s bondage themed novels, Dark Secret Love, The Delicious Torment and Wrapped Around Your Finger offer the reader an insight into what really happens in a BDSM lifestyle. Our fascinating protagonist, Samantha, is a submissive with intellect and attitude in equal measure. Her quest for the perfect Dom and her kinky, erotic and often romantic adventures along the way keep the reader engrossed right to the very last word on the last page – and desperate for more.

Cara Sutra and Alex Jordaine Talk FemDom

Interview with FemDom Erotica author, Alex Jordaine

The audience for my ‘Mistress’ books are by definition interested in Femdom and BDSM, want characters and a story they can really engage with, and most importantly want to be turned on by what they’re reading.

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.

Erotica News: Free excerpt from Bound for Trouble edited by Alison Tyler

So, hell, now I find myself hog-tied, wrists bound to ankles with silky red rope, in the swanky riverside apartment of some guy that, until just over an hour ago, I’d never laid eyes on. All I’ve got on is a pair of black lace panties and a pair of Rupert Sanderson stilettos, having left my dignity somewhere over by the door. I’ve never been tied up before, I’ve never been spanked before and I’ve certainly no idea what’s going to happen next. And I have to say, I think I’m enjoying myself. But how the fuck did I get myself into this in the first place? I think it was something I said.

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.
