I never thought I’d see the day- but yes, it’s true- Oysters and Chocolate, and its sister publishing house OC Press, are to be no more.
Editors Samantha and Jordan are off on new exciting adventures- and boy, what a legacy they have left the world of erotica!!!
Almost eight years of top notch erotic short stories, poems, and advice; hot photographs, drawings, and paintings in the gallery, not to mention book reviews, have graced their wonderful erotic web site.
Let’s not forget their paperbacks- the two Oysters and Chocolate erotic anthologies- Erotica of Every Flavor, and Nice Sex, Naughty Girls (both of which I was extremely honoured to have work featured), and then their amazing non-fiction publications (which are BRILLIANT), Mastering Your Man from Head to Head, Penis Genius, and Clitology.
As regular readers of my own site will know, it was Oysters that gave me my first break back in September 2005, with the erotic poem, Regrets…
Regrets, I’ve had a few.
Most of them to do with you.
I should have shagged you on the floor.
In the kitchen; against a door.
I could have pressed you to a mirror,
And seen your sweat marks shine and shimmer.
Watched you spill your creamy cum
Across my tits, my face, my bum.
I was too refined to dare to ask
if you would like an anal blast.
And how I wish I hadn’t been
so refined, so frightfully clean.
Although it was smashing, sexy, great,
I so regret that it’s too late.
After that, Oysters took me under their wing- and I haven’t looked back. True, I’ve had a good many publications with other fantastic publishers since (and hopefully will continue to do so), but without that early encouragement, and Jordan and Sam’s continued support, then I have no doubt that life for me would be very different now. I’d probably have left erotica, and gone back to ‘real life’!!!
I could go on and on about how great the site is- but, hey, you already know that it’s wonderful- so I’ll finish now with a personal thank you to Jordan and Sam.
You allowed me to show over 30 of my stories, reviews, and poems on your site. You let me run fast and loose every Christmas with a new seasonal tale, and took my hot courier man novella, Not Her Type, teaching me the art of editing from English to American in the process!!
Through Oysters I have become friends with authors I had previously admired from afar, and could never have imagined being lucky enough to work with, let alone getting to know- Jeremy Edwards, Rose Caraway, Shar Azade, and Dr Richard Wagner, to name but a few!!
I’ll close with a big THANK YOU to Jordan and Sam- for everything. GOOD LUCK will your next projects!!!!!
Love Kay xx
