The Lusty Month of May
New and Upcoming Releases
It's May, it's May, the lusty month of May...
Okay, no more singing. But I do have a lot of news to share with you.
Last week, Books We Love put out a huge collection of my BDSM work, entitled Admit You Want It. For one low price, you can get eighteen sizzling stories of dominance and submission, plus a 30,000 word novella. Come on, you know you're tempted. Admit it!
Also, in just a few days Cleis will release the long-awaited collection edited by D.L. King, Slave Girls, which includes my short story Muse, the tale of an erotic romance author who meets the master she's never dared write. You can find an excerpt here.
Speaking of editor D.L. King, her anthology Under Her Thumb has won the 2013 Independent Publishers Awards Silver Medal for erotica. The "IPPY" awards recognize excellence in independently published books in a range of categories. Under Her Thumb includes some great stories, including my own contribution, Layover. (Click here for a snippet.)
And speaking of awards, Coming Together: Girl on Girl is a finalist for the 2014 Golden Crown awards. The "Goldies" celebrate the year's best LGBTQ literature. This volume includes my lesbian BDSM tale, Sundae, Bloody Sunday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
Looking ahead, I just signed a contract with Totally Bound for my What's Her Secret novel, retitled as The Ingredients of Bliss (formerly "Her Secret Weapon"). This over-the-top novel brings back the characters from Her Secret Ingredient for a wild romp through France. Stay tuned for more news about this release, which should be available for pre-order in July!
After a lapse of several months, I've put up another dramatic chapter of CatToy. The story is winding to a close - I think there's just one more chapter to go! I'll leave the last chapter up for a month or so, but then I'll be taking it down so that I can send it to a publisher. So if you haven't read the story, better do so soon!
Also on the free reading front, I've put together a stand-alone version of my romantic BDSM short A Case of You, with a dynamite cover. If you want a copy, all you you to do is admit you want it... Go to my blog and leave a comment with your email, admitting that you want it... I'll send you the ebook in return.
On Sunday the 18th, I'm going to send out information on my next VIP reader giveaway, limited to people who are on my private email list. I'm giving away two prizes this month, $10 gift vouchers from Totally Bound.
Want to become one of my VIP readers? Just send me an email, to lisabet [at] lisabetsarai [dot] com and join in the fun.
Ok - just for the fun of it, let's do an impromptu giveaway right now! Leave a comment on this post, with your email, and I'll enter you to win a copy of my hilarious novella What's Her Secret. I'll draw the winner next Sunday!
Lisabet's Pick of the Month
My May pick of the month is erotic author Jeremy Edwards' website. Jeremy is old friend of mine, and I was just thrilled to learn that his fabulously funny novel The Pleasure Dial also won an IPPY this year. I'm so proud of him. Of course, I love the book (read my review here). I highly recommend it if you're seeking non-stop witticisms and happy-go-lucky lust, with a deliciously happy ending.
