Today is the release date for the new e-book Dirty Little Numbers: Erotic Flash Fiction of 500 Words or Less edited by Lana Fox and Angela Tavares. I'd been touting the Go Deeper Press call for submissions for this one in my erotic writing workshops because it's a challenge and an art to write a full, sexy story in 500 words or less but it can be done. I'm looking forward to reading all the others and strongly recommend writing short, either like this, or the 1,200 word limit, such as in my books Gotta Have It and The Big Book of Orgasms. It's amazing how much you can cut out when you have such a strict word count; it forces you to boil down the essence of what makes your story.
My Dirty Little Numbers story is called "Teamwork" and was inspired by the news that Rihanna enjoys getting bikini waxes for the pain. There are so often straight from the headlines stories that beg to be turned into erotica. The official blurb for the book is below, and you can buy it directly from publisher Go Deeper Press, or for your Kindle or Nook.
This collection of super-short erotic stories features steamy work by Rachel Kramer Bussel, Kristina Lloyd, Tamsin Flowers, and dozens of talented others. From the romance of sex in taffeta as the sea whispers beside us, to the power of a birthday menage-a-trois and an attraction as compelling as Nabakov’s Lolita, these tales strip off fast and pop like champagne.
The works in this anthology are a mix of LGBT, heterosexual, and kinky erotic pieces by Erzabet Bishop, Benji Bright, Daniel Burnell, T.J. Caliber, Heather Day, Stephen Dorneman, Arianna Douglas, Jeremy Edwards, Tamsin Flowers, Lana Fox, Abyssinia Grey, Nikki Haze, Madeleine Hennefield, Mia Hopkins, Waffle Irongirl, Regina Kammer, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Adrea Kore, Axa Lee, Annabeth Leong, Kristina Lloyd, Jacob Louder, Raziel Moore, Giselle Renarde, Shane St. John, and Angela Tavares.
