Cheyenne’s Favourite Erotic Stories Read in 2013

My favorite erotic stories are ones with heart. I don’t necessarily mean romantic hearts and flowers, I mean stories which offer something beyond sex, something beyond Tab X into Slot Y. You could say my favorite erotic stories are stories first, and erotic second. Call me old school.

My top ten stories listed here are all short stories published in multi-author anthologies. I’m a lover of the short story, both to read and to write, and while I’ve read some wonderful longer works this year, I’m sticking with shorts for my choices. I’m picking single stories though, as most of the anthologies are ones in which I too have a story.

Again, this list is in no particular order. Links go to the anthology.

Need a last minute holiday gift? All of these are available as ebooks. All

  1. “Canvas” by Renee Roberts from “Down and Dirty: 69 Super Sexy Short-Shorts” edited by Alison Tyler. The narrator yearns for the inked dom behind the bar. And she gets her in a flickering reality of skin and ink and words laid as precisely as tattoos on virgin skin.
  2. “Making Myself at Home” by Jeremy Edwards from The Mammoth Book of Quick & Dirty Erotica edited by Maxim Jakubowski. A layered tale about watching and being watched.
  3. “Midnight Clear” by Laila Blake from “A Christmas to Remember: Five Festive Tales of Lesbian Lust” put out by Ladylit. Naked scampering in the snow, and a poignant tale of warmth and friendship and something more.
  4. “Foxy and the Ridiculous Lesbian Orgy” by Allison Moon from “Wild Girls, Wild Nights: True Lesbian Sex Stories” edited by Sacchi Green. A highly original set up and a fantastic romp of a tale.
  5. “What I Want, What I Need” by Jacqueline Applebee from “Twice the Pleasure: Bisexual Women’s Erotica” edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. A wonderfully fluid tale about a lesbian getting over a breakup.
  6. “Come to the Light” by Maria See from “Sudden Sex: 69 Sultry Short Stories” edited by Alison Tyler. A butch with DDD breasts. I loved this subtle little story, and how it throws aside stereotypes.
  7. “The History of Her Tongue” by Shaun Levin also from The Mammoth Book of Quick & Dirty Erotica edited by Maxim Jakubowski. Literary erotica as it used to be. Truly stunning. If I had to pick one story as my favorite, it would be this one.
  8. “One More Transformation” by Nobilis Reed from “Coming Together: In Vein edited by Lisabet Sarai. Highly original (and hot) vampire story.
  9. “Sgt. Rae” by Sacchi Green from Best Lesbian Romance 2013 edited by Radclyffe. A powerful story of love and memory between military women.
  10. “Tripartite” by Georgia E Jones from “Sudden Sex: 69 Sultry Short Stories” edited by Alison Tyler. This atmospheric story is about that most delicious of scenarios: friends into lovers.

Girl Fever

It’s now official – “Girl Fever – 69 Stories of Sudden Sex for Lesbians” is revving up for take off. It’s always exciting to hear you have a story in an anthology, but personally, I get more excited when I see the table of contents and see the company I’m in.

Crikey, I say (because I’m in Australia), look at those names between the covers. And how happy I am to be cuddled up next to Shanna for both my stories. Maybe some of her glam will rub off on me!

You can read more about “Girl Fever” over at editor Sacchi Green’s blog. Check out her introduction here.

Lesbian Cops: Erotic Investigations

I got mail today. Lovely shiny copies of “Lesbian Cops: Erotic Investigations” edited by Sacchi Green. Days when books arrive in the mail are always good days. So much possibility between those shiny covers. So much good reading, so many favorite authors to read, so many new authors to discover.

I love getting Sacchi’s calls for submissions – she comes up with such wicked themes: lesbian cowboys, lipstick on collars, or just simple lesbian lust. However, I admit that I found coming up with a story for “Lesbian Cops: Erotic Investigations” somewhat harder than usual.

It wasn’t that the theme didn’t appeal. It did. Greatly. 😉 But I found it a difficult story to start. I actually started three stories before I managed to complete one. I’d lie in bed at night and let wanna-be characters roam around my head. Some wandered through and out the other side, some simply never made it past a formless, nebulous woman with “lesbian cop” written on her forehead.

The first one who stuck long enough to make it to the keyboard was Lexie, who walked into the cop station and reported her car stolen — the very car Lexie herself had stolen from the cop’s girlfriend some months before. Lexie ground to a halt after 700 words, stuck in a mish-mash of rego plates with cute acronyms and a lack of motive.

Then there was Clodagh. Clodagh was a garda in Ireland in the 1970s at the height of the Troubles, the time of car bombs and kneecappings and mistrust. She was destined for an encounter with the wife of an IRA hunger striker, but after 900 words their story was becoming dark and sad, not hot and horny.

Next up was Suzanne. I rather liked Suzanne. She was a social worker who often accompanied our cop protagonist on the late night calls where children might need pulling out of domestic violence situations. Despite the rather dark overtones, Suzanne was bright and chirpy, a femme who was having trouble convincing her butch copper that yes, she liked girls, yes, she was tougher than she looked, and yes, how about it, NOW.

Finally, along came Eve and Kaye. Eve is a hippie who lives in a ramshackle shed along a dirt road in the hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast (strangely… the area where I’m living now). Kaye receives a tip that Eve’s growing dope on her block and goes to investigate. Eve and Kaye make it all the way to the sweaty conclusion. There are vegetables in this story, suntanned shoulders, raspberries, a dog called Jaffa, lovemaking on the grass in the sunshine, and a very sated lesbian cop.

I vacillated; torn between the desire to slap her down, find some pretext to wipe that smile from her face, and simply giving in. Simply walking over to her, pulling down that loose singlet top and nuzzling my face into her breasts. Finding out what her hair felt like freed from its thick plait, seeing how it would fall over her shoulders, how long it was when loose. I was a breath away from ignoring duty, the reason I was here, the possibility Eve was a criminal – albeit a very minor one.

Lexie, Clodagh, and Suzanne have gone back to the Unfinished folder (a huge folder, bulging with snippets and possibilities, some good, some terrible). Maybe they’ll come out to play at a later date, maybe not. In the meantime, I’m greatly looking forward to reading the other stories in this anthology.

Lesbian Cops: Erotic Investigations

Books! Books!

I love it when the mailman staggers to my door. If he’s overloaded, red, and sweating it generally means one thing: books!

Either books ordered from my new favorite place to buy – The Book Depository (FREE worldwide delivery and books at UK prices. Did I say FREE worldwide delivery, ladies and gentlemen? That’s one huge saving, especially for me in Australia.) or it means contributor’s copies.

Some of my recent contributor’s copies include “Best Lesbian Romance 2011”* edited by Radclyffe which includes my story set in a Magdalene Laundry in Ireland.

We don’t talk, except in whispers, our heads under the covers. Often, we don’t talk at all, we simply align our bodies together and let our hands do the talking, gestures of reassurance, of caring, of love. I’ll spoon behind Maura, and my palms will smooth over her belly, smoothing away the pain from her womb, and the absence of its produce. I’ll soak in the warmth and comfort of another body, and let my hands convey all the love that I have. Or Maura will cradle my head on her breast and stroke my shoulders, my back, and whisper words of love into my hair.

Then there’s “Lesbian Lust: Erotic Stories”* edited by Sacchi Green. This includes my own “A Story About Sarah”. My tale is set in a mining camp in Western Australia. Told by Melly, a half-Aboriginal woman, it’s a paen to her lover Sarah.

It was a long time before we did anything but kiss. Months. Why seek more when what you have is so perfect? Sarah’s kisses are like the creek that flows down the red bluff after rain: at first it’s barely there, the merest hint of what’s to come, before it swells and falls into something so deep you could drown in it. Then it overflows, and unleashed it swirls into a fierce, raging passion.

*Yeah, I know. The links go to Amazon. But I’m a poor erotic writer struggling to make a crust and those tiny $$s from Amazon from the referral links add up. So shoot me. 🙁

Story acceptances

It seems I am woefully awful at updating. I’d like to say that I spent the time when I should have been updating writing new stories, but that’s not entirely true either. I spent most of it cooking, running, reading some seriously good stories, futzing around on the web. Oh, and moving back to Australia.

I have been writing though (of course), and I have some rather wonderful acceptances to prove it. Continue reading “Story acceptances”

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Before I head out to the parade and a pint of porter in my local pub here in Ireland, I want to tell you some news. Firstly, the aforementioned “The Mile High Club: Plane Sex Stories” edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel is about to hit the stores. Rachel’s running a fantastic promotion:

Order The Mile High Club from anytime on Monday, March 23rd, and Rachel will send you any of her Cleis Press books you want, for free (Do Not Disturb, Tasting Him, Tasting Her, Yes, Sir, Yes, Ma’am, He’s on Top, She’s on Top, Rubber Sex, Crossdessing, Hide and Seek, Caught Looking, Rubber Sex, Best Sex Writing 2008, Best Sex Writing 2009). Continue reading “Happy St Patrick’s Day!”

Happy success stories

It’s always great when a story really comes together and when you lift fingers from the keyboard at the end, you know you’ve got a story to be proud of. “Wing Walker” was one of those, and it will be in Rachel Kramer Bussel’s “The Mile High Club: Plane Sex Stories” coming out from Cleis Press in April. Coming out in January 2009, again from Cleis is “Best Lesbian Romance 2009” edited by Radclyffe. This includes my story “Eyes” (writing as Maggie Kinsella). And finally, also from Cleis, due in June 2009, is “Girl Crazy: Coming Out Erotica” which will include my story “Flannel and Fleece”.

The next best thing to running a marathon, is…

Reading about it.

“Marathon Woman” was up on Clean Sheets, one of my favorite erotica sites. I also have copies of “Lipstick on Her Collar”. edited by Sacchi Green and Rakelle Valencia. I’m the first story in the book, which makes me very happy. Continue reading “The next best thing to running a marathon, is…”
