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.

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.

He began to hum to himself, surprised when the trees echoed back to him, “Who goes there?” Laughter! He was sure he heard it! Reining the horse to move faster, the trees began to blur. The laughter grew louder until suddenly, before him on the path, there was a woman dressed in a translucent, shimmering gown. He pulled his horse to a halt, nearly missing her and tumbling head first over the horse’s head into the underbrush. The horse shied away from the woman, but she reached out and stroked its nose, whispering softly into its ear. The horse turned and ran back down the path.

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.

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.
