As regular readers of this blog will be aware, I have been excitedly awaiting the publication of my very first illustrated anthology, Immoral Views. This is an excitement I have shared with my fellow writers, KD Grace, Lexie Bay, and Lucy Felthouse , and the books editor, Kojo Black.
How lucky am I to be occupying pages with some of erotica’s finest!?
The book has been hand illustrated by the artist Florian Meacci; each picture reflecting a scene from the tales within. Working mostly in black ink, his two main inspirations in life are fashion and comic books. You can see a selection of Florian’s work at his blog spot: www.florianmeacci.blogspot.com
Today I am thrilled to be able to treat you to a selection of excerpts, blurbs, and an illustration from Immoral Views!! – Hope this lot whets your appetite!!
If you like your erotica with ropes and whips attached, then my story, The Circus, should set you up nicely for the four fantastic pieces that follow.
The Circus by Kay Jaybee
The line is blurred between spectator and performer in a theatre of pleasure and pain!
Carrie could feel the heat of her skin prickle beneath her chestnut ponytail. She sat wishing that Scott hadn’t been called away on yet another dire work-related emergency, and that he could be there with her. More than a little self-conscious, she fidgeted with her outfit. Playing safe, she’d decided to wear black. Black thigh length boots, black pleated mini skirt, black stockings, and a black chest hugging lace-up basque, with strings that only just managed to conceal the pale freckled chest over which it had been stretched. She knew she looked like a slutty walking cliché. But then again, in this place, at this time, that was entirely the point…
Inside Looking Out by Lexie Bay
A chance encounter at a party…….. The thrill of watching and of being caught…… An adventure spanning two continents……. Izzy’s search for the man who took her voyeuristic virginity takes her from one debauched situation to another as she delves into the kinkier side of life; desperate to find the perfect thrill that will satisfy the lust he awakened in her. Deep down she knows that nothing will ever compare to the gorgeous and filthy Caleb, but that won’t stop her from enjoying the hunt. Will she find her depraved Prince Charming and more importantly can he ever live up to the thrill of her first time?
Allotted Views by K.D. Grace
When the mysterious ‘Woo Woo Man,’ JONATHAN takes on the thin strip of bramble-infested ground in the Blue Bell Street Allotments, veg gardener extraordinaire, ROSE, whose bedroom window overlooks his ‘small holding,’ wonders what idiot would take on such a project. When she ‘accidentally’ sees him chanting a bit of woo-woo and having a midnight wank under a full moon in his newly rotovated plot, she suspects his methods aren’t found in any RHS manual.
As watching his late night garden antics becomes more for voyeuristic pleasure than for sussing out sound horticultural practices, and as Jonathan’s garden grows more exquisite with every wank, Rose begins to wonder if there just might be something to a little sex woo-woo in the garden. But can she learn Jonathan’s secret without him learning hers, or will she be forced to come clean?
I appreciate a good garden way more than most, and I completely understand wanting to get onto the patch as early as possible – especially when it’s that time of year, when there’s so much to do and enthusiasm is running high. But it was midnight, for fuck sake! I had work in the morning. This was not neighbourly behaviour.
I was seriously considering giving him a piece of my mind or throwing something at him. But then he took off his shirt. He just slipped it right off over his head like it was something completely normal to do in the allotments in the middle of the night. The light from the streetlamp that shown across the alley behind my house lent just enough to the ambient moonlight that I could see his nipples bead to hard knots in the slight chill.
I like nipples. I like them a lot. I don’t care which sex they belong to, when they tighten and strain beneath a shirt, I get wet. I can’t help it. I can’t keep myself from imagining what’s causing those lovely, tense mini-erections – even if it’s nothing more than too much air conditioning in the frozen food isle at Sainsbury. Nipples are such a lovely reminder that we’re not nearly as in control of our biological functions as we think we are. And when someone is brazen enough to bare their nipples like roseate pebbles turned over in perfectly smooth tilth, well I’m completely in awe. And this man’s points were pink and stiff and yummy above rippled areole that made me want to touch, made me want to tweak and stroke and tongue, made me wish I had my binoculars handy.
It quickly became evident that it wasn’t the late night chill stiffening the man’s nips, at least not entirely. Before my eyes, he stepped out of a pair of ratty Birkenstocks and slid baggy cargo trousers off over his straight hips and the pillowed swell of his bottom. He kicked them carelessly to one side. Apparently the occasion had called for commando, and I didn’t have to endure more disrobing before I was treated to the full-on…
Caught in the Act by Lucy Felthouse
Police Constable David Beckett is just a normal guy, living a quiet life. His only excitement comes from his job – and even that’s not exactly been a barrel of laughs just lately. That is until his colleagues burst into the office one morning, full of tales from the night shift. Tales that cause Dave’s curiosity to get the better of him. Some idle surfing on the Internet opens up a whole world that Dave never knew existed – and he’s fascinated. After watching an amateur video, things escalate quickly and Dave finds himself drawn into a kinky lifestyle that could cost him his reputation – and his job.
Published by Sweetmeats Press, each of the stories in Immoral Views provides the reader with a different take on kink; stepping more than a toe into the words of S&M and BDSM. With the emphasis very much on the enjoyment of the audience, be it a group of onlookers, or an individual watcher, Immoral Views is an apt title for this feast of voyeurism.
Immoral Views is released today (31st Oct) in e-book format, and in paperback format on 7th November. It is available directly from Sweetmeats Press.
