New and Upcoming Releases
Since my last newsletter, less than four weeks ago, I've released two new books in very different genres. And I have a full schedule stacked up for the next six weeks!
Right now, I'm celebrating the publication of my very first single author F/F book, The Witches of Gloucester. This story (about 12,000 words) was originally written for my upcoming F/F collection Her Own Devices. I wanted some variety, since most of the stories in that book are realistic, contemporary pieces about couples. In contrast, Witches is a paranormal fantasy piece with a light-hearted tone, and features a threesome of delicious heroines. The publisher, however, felt that Witches would do better as a stand-alone title. Perhaps she thought it was too different from the rest of the stories. Anyway, it's out now and available at all your favorite bookstores. For a full list of links, go to the LadyLit site. You can read a spicy excerpt here.
The third volume of my D&S Duos series is also available now. This book includes two female-dominant stories, "Be Careful What You Wish For", and "Layover". You won't find stereotyped harsh mistresses in corsets and stilettos in these tales, though. My heroines wield more subtle forms of power—and the heroes love it.
And that's just the beginning. Here's a rough schedule of my releases coming up:
- March 27 - Early download release of The Eyes of Bast from Totally Bound (M/F paranormal erotic romance)
- April 3 - D&S Duos Book 4 (M/F BDSM erotica)
- mid April - Her Own Devices (F/F erotica/romance)
- April 24 - General Release of The Eyes of Bast
- April 24 - Release of The Gonzo Collection by Daddy X, edited by me (over-the-top erotica)
- late May - Coming Together: Outside the Box, including my M/M story "To Boldy Go"
I will be doing a blog tour for The Eyes of Bast the last week in April, with some fantastic prizes. Also, I'm working on a collection of paranormal short stories which should be out by May.
Oh, I have one more publication credit this past month. If you like to hear your erotic romance tales read out loud, check out Nobilis Reed's podcast site. He's featuring my steampunk story Green Cheese. To listen to it, go to the link below. You'll need Flash-enabled web browser.
Free Reading and Other News
This month's free read is one of my oldest BDSM romance stories, and one of my favorites: Wednesday Night at Rocky's Ace Hardware. Dominance and submission well-sweetened with love—check it out.
Speaking of free (and BDSM...), I also have links on the free reading page to a brand new book of kink entitled Beyond 50 Shades. This 200-plus page book, edited by award-winning D.L. King, includes fifty extended excerpts from the best BDSM erotica and erotic romance available in the market. You'll recognize lots of names—including, of course, mine. The book's available in pdf, mobi and epub formats.
While we're on the subject of awards, Cheyenne Blue's wonderful lesbian anthology Forbidden Fruit: Stories of Unwise Lesbian Desire has been nominated for a prestigious Lambda Literary Award. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
The best way to stay informed about all my releases and contests, is to join my VIP email list. Just send an email to lisabet [at] lisabetsarai [dot] com. Every month I run an exclusive contest for my VIP readers. For my March giveaway, the winner will have a choice of any two books from my backlist. I'll be announcing the contest next week, so if you want to sign up, do it now!
Lisabet's Pick of the Month
My March pick of the month is Big Ed's Place. Big Ed Magnusson is one of my colleagues from the Erotica Readers & Writers Association. Ed writes ferociously intelligent, consistently arousing erotica, often touching on difficult subjects like addiction and loneliness. His site is a joy to navigate; the wonderful manga-style art work is a bonus. (He also has an explicit photo gallery with images of his characters.)
