Girlfriends with Benefits – 12 Erotic and Romantic Hits

Well, well! I’ve been taking a bit of an extended vacation as Sidonie Spice while writing as Amy Valenti, but recently I did have time to include Sapphic Strokes in a lesbian bundle named Girlfriends with Benefits. If you haven’t read Saphic Strokes, now is the perfect time to pick it up at a discount, and with another eleven amazing stories of lesbian lovin’ by fantastic indie authors!

Girlfriends with Benefits crop

 

Sapphic Strokes Now Available on Amazon!

Yeah, my last post was about my Orgasmagic series, but I got a little sidetracked by way of inspiration. ;) So here’s a little tale to keep you busy while I finish it! It’s called Sapphic Strokes, and like Pussy for Kit, it’s a story of a girl who pops her lesbian cherry at a time she least expects it. I’m going to make this a collection of stand-alone stories named (of course!) Lesbian Cherry.

Anyway, you can grab Sapphic Strokes at Amazon US and Amazon UK for now – it’s in the Kindle Select programme so you can’t get it anywhere else… for now, anyway. ;)

When Toni decides to take her sexual frustration into her own hands in a public restroom, she doesn’t mean for anyone to overhear her. So why, then, is there a girl outside the stall she’s locked herself away in, begging for Toni to let her in so she can give her a helping hand – or tongue? Why is she talking dirty to Toni when neither of them knows who the other is?

And why does Toni get off on it, when she’s never thought she was into women before now, and doesn’t even know what the girl on the other side of the door looks like?

One thing’s for sure – by the end of this smutty short story, Toni will be getting stroked by more than just her own fingers…

This 5,500 word short story features voyeurism, exhibitionism, dirty talk, mutual masturbation with a stranger, cunnilingus and finger-fucking – you know you want it! ;)

Sidonie Comes Out!

I’m a lesbian. Shocking news, I know. ;)

Anyway, that’s not what I’m coming out about. You might not be aware that I’m also the erotic romance writer Amy Valenti, with books published by Total-E-Bound Publishing and Breathless Press.

As Amy, I’ve written paranormal, crime, BDSM and menage erotic romance, and have erotic sci-fi and horror books coming out within the next four weeks. My books range from 6,000 to 75,000 words long, so there’s a size and genre for everyone. ;)

If you like a little romance with your smut, try me out! I promise I’m just as pervy, but the stories have more emphasis on plot and character development (hence the extra word counts).

My Brazen Babysitters Series Has Been Unfairly Censored

*sigh* Until further notice, the Brazen Babysitters series will not be available on All Romance eBooks because they’ve decided that since it has ‘babysitter’ in the title, it must be about sex with children. For those who haven’t read it, let me assure you that it has absolutely no underage sex in it whatsoever. I have appealed this decision, and hopefully will be back on ARe with these titles soon.

On a related note, this is probably what ARe are looking to stock from now on: Let’s Not Do It But Say We Did by Cherry Allen!

Censorship of Erotica is Bad and Wrong

There’s some serious shit going down that people should know about.

Due to pressure from credit card companies based in the States (because, y’know, it’s an election year, and who’s going to weigh in and defend erotica when votes could be at stake?) PayPal – which, by all accounts, is a dubious company anyway – is suspending the accounts of erotica distributors.

Bookstrand has booted indie authors entirely. All Romance eBooks has threatened account deactivation if any of the hot topics are submitted to their catalogue. Now Smashwords has reluctantly joined them, which is a huge blow for indies outside the USA – Smashwords is the only way they can get books distributed by Barnes and Noble, iBookstore and Sony’s Reader Store, amongst others.

On the surface, you might think they have a valid point. Bestiality, rape as titillation, incest and pseudo-incest, necrophilia… they’re all morally wrong, or at the very least, morally questionable. I don’t write any of this since I’m not into it, personally. When I first found out about the huge amounts of cash indie authors were raking in from pseudo-incest titles, I was squicked out – no word of a lie.

But let’s have a think about this. Credit card and money services companies get to dictate the availability of what we read? Didn’t they fuck up the economy already? Why should they go unchallenged?

Yes, erotica depicting sex that is criminal should be stopped. Minors, animals and dead people can’t legally give consent. Sex with blood relatives can result in deformed and disabled children with serious health defects. But if all the parties are over eighteen, and portrayed that way? If they’re not related by blood? If they get off on the fantasy of being raped, and give their consent to their partner to pretend that they actually are in that situation?

These things are all legal. They’re just taboo. And because they’re taboo, people get off on it. Fact.

And this is fiction, people. No one is being exploited. No one is being mentally or physically scarred. It’s all fantasy that comes from the highly sexual imaginations most of us have, deep down.

Maybe you like talking dirty in bed. The word ‘cunt’ gives you a thrill. That’s because it’s considered the most extreme commonly-used curse. Should all books featuring that word be banned? Fuck, no!

You don’t have to want to read the books that are being censored to protest about this. The basic fact is this: book censorship, when no criminal acts are actually being portrayed in a titillating way, is wrong. It’s oppressive. We are being told what to think, made to feel guilty about how we feel. And where does it end, once we start?

What if the heads of the credit card companies decide they don’t like gay or lesbian fiction? What if they start calling for any books with BDSM – clearly or dubiously consensual – to be censored? And what about authors like Virginia Andrews, whose books are hugely popular and also contain incest? Should they be censored as well?

We have to put our collective foot down before the credit card companies, PayPal or any political entities decide to see how far they can extend their reach. Get angry about this. Post on Facebook.Tweet about it. Sign petitions. Write to your government expressing concerns. Call the media. Just raise awareness, so we don’t end up giving more than this tiny inch to people whose control isn’t democratic, but based on money and subjectivity.

Please share this post, and as many others as you can find. And please bear in mind that this censorship isn’t affecting me at the moment. My concern isn’t for myself and my bank balance, but for society in general.

Don’t let corporations get away with this, or it might be your fantasies they try to take away next.

Thank you for reading.

Alice Goes Wild – Out Now!

Finally! Alice is back in a fifth instalment of the Brazen Babysitters series, and she’s finding new ways to get off with every new book! Grab a copy at All Romance eBooks, Bookstrand or Smashwords now – Amazon links still to come.

Alice has never been a fan of the Great Outdoors, but when her brazen ex-babysitters, Beth and Carla, drag her out of the cabin they’re staying in for some forest sex, she reconsiders in a hurry!

When she’s not being finger-fucked against a tree or watching Beth and Carla go at it on a blanket spread out on the forest floor, she’s riding Beth’s strap-on towards her very first female ejaculation – and she loves it! Alice has found her wild side, and she and her lovers still have two more days at the remote cabin to explore their sexuality…

I’m Not Dead, and Neither is Alice!

Hey everyone,

Happy 2012! I’ve had such an insane January that I haven’t published any thing at all yet this year – but all that’s about to change…

Here’s the cover for the fifth instalment of the Brazen Babysitters series – Alice Goes Wild. In this spicy short read, Alice learns the joys of exhibitionism and vibrators, and gets up close and personal with Beth’s strap-on. Or at least, she will when I’ve finished writing it. ;) It’s only about halfway through at the moment.

Nearly Time for Release!

Argh! I have been SO writer’s blocked. Last night I finally sat down and made myself write, so I’m about three-quarters done with my Christmas lesbians, Holly and Ivy. It turned out kinkier than I intended, so I hope that’s not a turn-off for my Brazen Babysitters readers.

Anyway, I’m not dead – I’ve just been busy! Watch this space for buy links to my newest release soon, and yes, there’ll be a new Brazen Babysitters book out before Christmas. ;)
