Call for Stories for SuperBowl smut!


When I was the Editorial Director at Ravenous Romance, we did an annual Superbowl anthology filled with delightfully smutty stories that could be read during the actual event or during half time (or that was my fantasy).  It always sold well, and I liked to think of it as my own personal contribution to the erotica world.

So I want to renew that tradition, and am calling for a whole new batch of football erotica stories for this year’s SUPERBOWL SMUT.  Reprints are most welcome.  This is a pansexual anthology, so Het, M/M, F/F, ménage and all combinations and variations. Hey, we’ll even take football-playing vampires, (if you’ve got some).

Our readers like multiple partners, so the more the merrier. Brings a new meaning to huddle! So think of high school football hunks (everyone has to be over 18), college trading, coaches, pro football, love amongst teammates and love between teammates and fans. And I want to see a really hot story about half time!!! We could even do one about people who write those great Superbowl commercials! Be creative, please!

As in all in-house RAB anthologies, there is no advance but we pay a pro rata share of all royalties which are 33% for ebook and 8% for print, and every contributor gets a print copy. We're looking for stories of 2500-5000 words. Pass the call around! Send stories attached as a word doc, with an up-to-date bio (even if you think I have it) to: lori@riverdaleavebooks.com Deadline is Jan. 15, 2016.

Magic University Box Set on Sale with a New Xmas Story




Riverdale Avenue Books just published Cecilia Tan’s Magic University: The Compete Series as a six-title box set with a brand new story for the holidays, Christmas Magic.



Magic University is award-winning author Cecilia Tan's new adult erotic romance series. Follow Kyle's adventures as he arrives at Harvard, discovers he's magical, and learns he's destined to study at the magical college hidden in plain sight. Kyle's story ultimately is a quest to find true love, and many lessons must be learned and many risks taken on that journey. While studying sexual magic, Kyle comes to grips with bisexuality (a necessary trait for a sex magician), partakes in erotic rituals, finds strength in a circle of friends and lovers, and risks his heart for those he loves, but always yearns to find that one true love who will make him complete.

It’s Christmas at Gladius House but Frost isn’t feeling very festive. Kyle will do anything he can, though, to set Frost’s world alight. Set a few months after the final events in the Magic University series, the novella runs 15,000 words and contains erotic scenes

Tan explained what inspired her to write the new story. "So many significant scenes take place around the winter holidays in the Magic University books--Kyle's first time kissing another man, his confrontation with his best friend, and so many others--it just made sense to me to set a new story at Christmas. I wanted to explore a bit more about Kyle and Frost's relationship in the aftermath of the series, which ends at Halloween. So Christmas had perfect timing."

The six-book Box set goes on sale for $9.99 on December 16th. Available only for a limited time! For one low price get all four full-length Magic U. novels, the complete collection of 17 short stories, and one brand new novella, Christmas Magic! Who better to tell a Christmas tale than Frost?

An Interview with the Daring Author of A Scarlet Christmas, the Femdomme Retelling of A Christmas Carol

How did the idea come to you?

I started writing this story years ago but only got a few paragraphs in. I never throw anything away and sometimes, when I look at the bits and pieces I wrote in the past, I get ideas for new stories. I ran across my Christmas Carol a few months ago and started having dreams about all the fun things that could happen. That's not a figure of speech; I actually started dreaming about scenes I could add to the story and, yes, I tended to wake up pretty turned on. And then I got turned on to the business of writing it.

Tell us about the writing process?

In fact, I got so turned on to writing the story, I couldn't stop until it was finished. I went to Mexico over Thanksgiving week and took my laptop with me. Yep, I wrote the last 5 or 6 thousand words in my hotel room in Mexico--that's how invested I became in this story!

Anybody in particular inspire your Ebenezer?

The original Scrooge inspired my Ebenezer, initially, but then the City of New York completed the inspiration. I often say that New York is usually a central character in most of my stories, as important as any character who walks on two legs, and Ebenezer came out of the entire Holiday experience in the city. When Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol, he put the whole of his world into the tale. He wrote about people he knew, people he saw and events that unfolded around him. None of the characters in A Scarlet Christmas is based on any actual person, instead, each character is made up of pieces of everyone around me, including myself.

Anything else like this you’re working on?  What’s next?

Now, I'm taking a break. But I'm thinking of the next piece I want to write. I'm not sure what it is yet, but I want to do something with the same feel. I'll know it when I see it.
