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.

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.

No scrabbling around in the corners of your mind for the right way to say this out loud.

If your cover is writhing with bared sweaty genitalia or is called something like Fuck My Anus Dirty Boy then most niche-but-not-specifically-sex-based gigs will freak out and reject you. And while you might get some major publicity out of showcasing your sexual awakening tale entitled I Love My Pussy at the local cat show, you’d have to have a thicker skin than me and no day job you’d mind losing, to think it worth a go.

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

Breaking the mountain down into manageable daily amounts will ensure that you smash this novel writing goal.

News: Best Bondage Erotica 2015 edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel (& free sexy excerpt)

“Don’t worry about them, Lydia. We have all the time in the world.” He curled his fingers up and now his internal stroking was pressing and caressing my G-spot. As my breathing sped up, he kept pace. He removed his thumb from my clit and I groaned. “Oh, you like that, Lydia? Your clit is so swollen. It’s absolutely huge,” he said. He pressed both fingers against my Gspot and smacked my pussy with his hand, hitting my clit, and I screamed. “Come for me, Lydia. Come for me now,” he said, and smacked me again. “Come for me, pretty girl.” I was right on the edge. The guy was good. He raised his hand again and I knew when he smacked me, this time I’d come.
