It would seem that the UK audience is more appreciative of the latest DEV audio experience, Vampire Sex than the USA. Riding at 174 in the UK charts the audio is outside the top 250 in the US and the appreciation ratings there are on the low side. Perhaps I should have made my vampire ‘sparkle’?
Here is a recent US comment that is possibly more representative of those who are familiar with DEV?
“Vampire Sex, I'm at a loss for words. very nice, supremely satisfying, made a terrible mess, makes my knees weak thinking about it. My favorite of all by far...”
If you have purchased any DEV audios and enjoyed them, please leave a review either stars or a comment on Audible. I will be very appreciative.

Just a swift up date to let you know that Vampire Sex is now available on Audible.com. You can find it HERE
This comment was sent to me just recently about one of my Triple X audio experiences -
“Gave one of your newer audios a try over the weekend (Mine to Use). Don't know how long it's been there...I guess I just hadn't scrolled down far enough to see it. Have to say...not bad at all! No complaints at all about the content (I tend to prefer your "more intense" material, fortunately it was already laundry day...!). This one's another winner from my POV.”
Name provided but withheld for their privacy
The introduction and induction to this experience is shorter than the usual, it is aimed at those listeners who are already familiar with DEV experiences and want the experience of urgent lust...

Just completed the first draft of a full length Erotic Romance Novel - Practical Research
This is a new venture for me as it is my first book co authored with another writer. Genevieve Ash is a multi published Romance and Erotic Romance author. We have edited some anthologies together and it seemed a logical progression to write a book together. I love the characters and the sex is very hot. We have had some fun with some of the cliches that one can trip over in the genre and tried to make the whole book fun as well as sexy.
Here is an extract. Comments via the Feedback page welcome.
Callista Makris is a Berkeley Post Grad looking for a summer internship to take her through to her Masters in Anthropology. Professor Anbarasan (Anbu) Dahl is the academic who has advertised just the thing for her. However, the job involves a whole lot more than she imagined...
“Ooh, are you going to spank me?” Callista put on her best innocent pout and girly voice as she pulled at his striped silk tie. Tugging it from side to side, she loosened it and slipped it over his head. His hands were hot on the bare skin of her shoulders and she thought she felt them tremble.
Anbu had an urge to put his fingers around her throat and squeeze but her next words made his spine tingle.
“You could tie me up with this…if you want?” She pushed her hips against him yet again, letting her pelvis slip from side to side, grinding against him. The gorgeous agony of his cock trapped between her and his body was making him want to thrust against her. It took all his will to control his urge. Callista was no longer a subject of study at that moment, all the time he had held himself back from women since Africa, all the suppressed emotion was bubbling up inside. It was getting to be just too much. The image Callista had conjured was too strong.
She saw he wasn’t moving, wasn’t trying to stop her, he just looked at her—or was it through her.
“You would like that wouldn’t you?” His voice was throaty, full of his desire. “If you don’t stop moving your hips like that, I will do more than tie you up and spank you.”
It was the word ‘more’ that tipped her into direct action, Callista’s vision became blurred and her breathing short as she pulled his shirt from the waistband of his trousers and then reached up for the top button. Anbu grabbed her hand and held it there, pressed against his throat. All Callista could hear was their mingled breathing and the blood roaring in her ears, she could feel the pulse in his throat under her fingers, racing in tandem with hers. She had never wanted anything-or anyone more than she wanted Anbu at this very moment.
“Kiss me, Anbu.” Callista kept her gaze steady and waited. His face moved closer and she began to tremble uncontrollably. His lips brushed over hers gently before moving to her cheek. More! I want more. She turned her head, searching for his mouth; Anbu sucked in a breath and bit at her bottom lip. Callista gasped, his sharp teeth feeding her desire. His mouth covered hers and he kissed her deeply, his tongue plunging into her mouth. Callista wrapped her hands around his head and pulled him closer. His kiss was hungry, his tongue searching, she felt the power of his need reaching into her core and she began to melt inside. Whimpering, Callista pushed all of her body against him looking for intimate contact. Something to stop the ache she felt inside. It was like a cold shower when Anbu broke the kiss and pulled from her grip, with the words,
“Damn it Callista, No!”
The shock was making her whole body shudder, No this can’t happen, not now, I need this too much.
Callista tried to calm her voice and sound reasonable,
“Anbu, take it easy. What’s a kiss among friends?”
Anbu stomach was churning, seeing and feeling things from Africa, it was as though he were in two places and times, then and there as well as here and now. Another beautiful woman in his arms, ready for him, wanting him and he wanting in return. He spoke then about the past and the present,
“It is never just a kiss. We cannot, must not do this.” He pushed Callista away even though he wanted to crush her breasts to his chest and grip her hips, push himself against her, instead saying, “It will skew the study.”
Callista wanted to scream with frustration, and shuddering desire. She nearly shouted at him, “Fuck the study, Anbu. You want to know how freeing from inhibition and social sexual repression affects women - I am showing you first hand.” Anbu hands shook as he brought them to his head and he ran them through his dark hair, his eyes avoiding hers as she went on. “Think of it as practical research.” Her words stung him, his research in Africa had become entirely too practical, with tragic consequences.
Callista could see the something in his glittering eyes, a strong emotion, indecision. She took his hands in hers and placed them on her chest, the soft swell of her upper breasts filling his palms as she pressed them against her.
“Anbu, feel my heart beating. I am alive. Touch me.” For a moment the past became distant, this women in his grasp was very much alive and it had been so long. Anbu bent his head and kissed the soft rise of her breasts.
Callista mumbled into the soft hair on his head as his lips worked against her skin “You can’t hide in the study—or the past.”
Anbu looked up, the sharp new anger in his eyes made Callista shiver. He stepped from her, pushing her away and took a deep breath. Oh shit, me and my big mouth…
“What do you know of my past? You know nothing about me.”
Desperately trying to recover the moment, Callista said, “Then tell me.”
Anbu felt the upwelling of emotion overwhelm his simple desire for intimacy and comfort. He needed to remind Callista, and himself of what was between them.
“I am not your boyfriend, we are not going to hold hands and…share.”
Callista felt like his words were slapping her head from side to side, “Why do you have to be so cruel? I just want to know why you always reject me?”
“I have told you, this is an assignment. You are merely an assistant and a study subject, nothing more.” He had half turned from her as he spoke, trying to dismiss her again she thought.
That made her snarl, “I don’t think the bulge in your pants is work related.”
Anbu, stopped his hand from moving to cover his crotch, that was juvenile he thought. This needs to be a grown up conversation.
“I am human. When a beautiful woman throws herself at me what do you expect?”
Throws herself…Fucking arrogant bastard, who the fuck does he think... Callista stomped toward the door. She tried to fill her lungs but her anger left no room for air. “You know what your problem is, Professor?” She walked back and faced him, her hands on her hips and heels spiked widely into the carpet. His mouth was sneering but his eyes were still glittering, though with what she was no longer sure, but his words were horrid.
“Oh, do tell…”
Callista so wanted to slap the smug smile off his face. She let him have all her bitterness and disappointment.
“You’re so self-absorbed you couldn’t possibly care about anyone else. Maybe that is why your precious little Arab houri, Halgan, is no longer in your bed. News flash, Master Anbu, Sir; the world does not revolve around you!”
Turning on her heel, Callista took a step away towards the door, a sob beginning to force its way up her constricted throat. Anbu felt something snap inside.
When Anbu grabbed her by the wrist and pulled her into his arms, the force and shock made Callista cry out, half whimper, half moan. His embrace was overpowering, all encompassing. She was both frightened - and aroused by his unexpected show of strength. Trying to twist out of his grasp he only held her tighter, his breath hot on her face. His hands were hurting her arms, the pain oddly warming low down, making her want to slump against his chest. His eyes were darker than she had ever seen them, as though his black pupils had expanded to engulf all the grey. She struggled to make sense of his words.
“And your problem, Ms. Makris, is your inability to respect boundaries. I am going to teach you some respect.” His fingers digging into her wrist, Anbu dragged her to the couch.
He sat, still holding her wrists tightly and closed his eyes before taking a deep breath. He opened them and Callista saw only power within them. His voice was deep and calm.
“On your knees, Callista.”
Callista knew her mouth and eyes were equally wide open in surprise. She snorted, closing them both quickly to find some escape, then opened them slowly saying quietly,
Anbu looked at her intently. Callista did not even think he was blinking. He was holding himself so still, it frightened her. He spoke very quietly, but forcefully,
“I said, on your knees.”
Callista stood firm. Her wrist was burning where his encircling fingers dug into her. She shifted the weight on her feet, her calves aching from the unnatural arch enforced by the high heels. Anbu reached out and pulled her by the waist, forcing her face down onto his lap. She was taken off guard and the wind knocked from her lungs as her body hit his knees. She tried to protest but could only gasp.
The sting of his hand as it made contact with the second skin of smooth leather stretched tightly across her bottom made Callista cry out. Again, he spanked her, this time harder than the last and the slow burn spread over the tightly encased muscle of her ass, leaving a delicious tingle in its wake.
“Anbu, stop, you’re hurting…” Her plea turned into a moan as she felt his long hard fingers on the bare skin of her legs, pushing the leather skirt up and over her bottom, exposing the hot skin to the cool air. His fingertips were tracing delicate circles on her tender flesh, the light touch of his hand on the newly depilated skin causing a frisson that had Callista’s nerve endings on fire. She didn’t want to like it, but oh, she did. She liked it very much.
“Anbu, please, I…” Her words trailed off, she didn’t know what to say. Callista did not want to tell him to stop.
“You need to understand how to behave.” Anbu spanked her again three times in rapid succession. Then he stroked her naked bottom again and asked,
“Do you want me to stop?”
Callista could feel the droplets of moisture trickling down the walls of her cunt. She didn’t want him to stop, she wanted so much more. Callista parted her legs slightly, gently shifting her hips form side to side, pressing her mound against the tense muscles of his thigh. She heard him inhale deeply and groan. “I can smell you.” His words made her melt even more, she could feel the lace and satin of her thong soaking wet between her thighs.
Anbu massaged the naked cheeks of her bottom with strong fingers. Callista hoped that he would leave marks that she could see later and make her remember. His deep penetrating caress parted her moist labia; wet swollen flesh opening and coming together against the soaking material of her panties, the erotic sounds like that of a soft kiss.
He spanked her again—hard, three times. She whimpered and moved her hips to grind her clit into Anbu’s knee. Again he spanked her and she screamed her need. Reaching between her legs he cupped her sex, the heel of his hand pushing at the remaining scrap of satin, sliding against her swollen clit. Callista circled her hips pushing back and up into his hand.
“You are so wet for me.” She heard him say, with wonder.
Callista was afraid to speak. She didn’t want to do anything that might stop him. The pressure was building inside her, she felt every inch of the skin covering her body as if it were stretched too tightly on her frame. She knew her juices were soaking Anbu’s pants.
“What do you want from me?” His words were faint, pensive, not so much a question as a plea as he peeled the damp cloth from between her legs and slid it down her thighs. Callista felt the wet trail of her own desire and lifted her bottom to ease his action, opening her legs wider when they were free, inviting him to explore.
She felt the whoosh of air as he raised his hand once more. Tensing the muscles in her cheeks, she waited for the brutal sting of his touch. Nothing! She wanted to cry out, beg for his burning blow, but she held back, surrendered and waited. Crack! His hand made sharp contact with renewed fervor and the rain of stinging blows were intense. Callista felt the first wave of orgasmic release push toward her core. The pressure to come was intense, filling her up to the brim and near overflowing. Her breathing grew short, her pleasure mingled with and amplified by the pain. She was hanging on the edge, needing something more. The cloth of his slacks was rough against her clit and she rubbed faster, looking for relief. So close the words were torn from her,
“Oh God, Anbu, please!”
His dark chuckle was edged with victory. He reached between her legs and slid two long, questing, fingers inside her. The walls of her cunt seized on them, squeezing them, trapping them inside her. The cool air soothed her glowing bottom making Callista more aware of the fire inside her as his fingers began to move there.
“Oh, fuck yes, Anbu, yes!” Callista lost all control. She had to surrender everything to him, needed to surrender herself. Suddenly the awareness that giving up control was not for the weak washed over her. Panicking, she felt the tide rush back, retreating from the brink into the pool of pleasure in her belly. Don’t think; just let it happen…please. Callista squeezed her eyes close and let go of her breath.
Anbu was in a dark place, his focus was on the feel of this woman on his fingers, in his lap, her helplessness, completely at his mercy. He felt the rush of power as he knew he could make her orgasm at his desire. The words came from somewhere other than his consciousness,
Anbu slipped his thumb through the slippery wet folds between her thighs and down, over her clit. He circled slowly over the smooth hard button under his thumb, at first increasing his tempo to match the increasing speed of her gasping sighs, then to his own rhythm and desire.
Callista was beyond caring about Anbu’s past or his distance from her or his fucking Bruna. What she cared about with all her shuddering body and soul was coming and coming very hard. She felt muscles clench in her belly, pushing the desire from within, bearing down hard on the thrusting twin fingers inside her. She exploded with a cry, expelling Anbu’s fingers from within her tightening sex with the sweet wet, rush of her release.
“Oh, fuck!” Callista cried out, in the agony of climax.
‘Practical Research’ by Genevieve Ash and Essemoh Teepee is intended for publication in the summer.
February 27th 2013
This is a short piece I created for one of Lisabet Sarai’s blogs last year, I like it so decided to repost it here. It is about waking up in a hotel room in the middle of the night...
…in the dark
Nature dragged me from the soft warm embrace of my bed into the chill of the hotel bathroom and the shock of cold porcelain against my skin. I must remember not to leave the seat up, but this is a strange place, one I am not used to so I guess I can forgive myself.
My back aches a little from the unaccustomed work out it got earlier. My lover arrived yesterday, or is it still today, perhaps it’s tomorrow, I wonder if jet-lag is contagious?
The warmth and cotton comfort of the bed next door embraces her as she lies asleep, her skin silky smooth, her thighs sticky from me. I will go back to her soon.
To hold her in my arms again after so long apart is difficult to describe, familiar and comfortable, yet fresh, strange and exciting at the same time. Like one of those optical illusions where you can see the profile of one woman and the face of another if you crash mental gears.
The bathroom is dimly lit; a low crimson glow from the smoke alarm barely allows me to see the outline of my own hand. Instead my mind’s eye sees her rounded breasts filling my field of vision, her peaked nipples begging for my tongue, my lips, my teeth… I can feel my cock stirring, filling.
I can still taste her, feel her back arching as I suckle between her thighs and drink her essence that she gives forth so freely at the urging of my mouth. My nose grinding against her clit is not a sense memory that will easily fade, nor will the sound of her orgasm in my ears be a fleeting recollection. She comes so hard for me and I am once more feeling so hard for her.
There is a magnetism that draws me back to the bed, to her. Positive attracts negative, natural polarity destined to merge and cancel out in a flood of orgasmic energy. I pause at the nightstand to search for the tube of lube with night vision fingers. The slippery coolness filling my palm soothes the ache of my cock, momentarily. The firm strokes of my fingers stiffening my purpose. Stealthy hands, knees and elbows move me across the cloud soft bedding, the sooty dimness hiding her hills and valleys from me.
I remember the warm tightness of her earlier, welcoming me, engulfing me, getting wet for me and I want that again, I want that now. She is still and quiet, she does not stir at my touch. Does she sleep still or just pretend to slumber on as I prepare to ravish her?
My hands on her thighs, spreading her wide. My weight upon her, my erection pressing my petition for urgent entry. Slick with lube, hard with lust, I slide easily into her heat, burying my want in her. The sounds she makes as she wakes to my fucking her, spur me to greater efforts; my hands trapping her wrists. The taking, the having, the possession draw me on. My ankles pressing down on hers, binding her to the bed. My lover is wide open and accepting beneath me, arching against me, clutching at me, squeezing me inside.
I am near and so is she; I want to hold back, to ensure she peaks first. I pause and she cries out,
“Just one more, please…”
I thrust hard into her, deeply, fully; once, twice and she screams into my face. I let go and fill her, my needs satisfied…for now.

Something New in DEV - For couples; the Couples in Touch series of specialist Better Sex Audio guided experiences.
Sometimes we all need a little extra sparkle to make our sexual experiences more exciting and fulfilling. The Couples in Touch series of Better Sex audios is written and narrated with just that in mind. Each audio is created for couples who would like to explore each other more completely and to experience new ways to please their partners.
Often couples find that is not easy to talk about what they want to do to and with each other during sex. Partners may want to talk to each other, to tell each other how good it feels or to ask for something they would like but they can be hesitant or even embarrassed. The Couples in Touch series of Better Sex audios can help to relax you and ease your inhibitions. It is as though each of you has a private mentor giving you advice and guidance on what to do to help your lovemaking to be even better.
Each experience in the Couples in Touch series takes you both on a journey together to explore an aspect of sex that can be exciting and sensual. Some of the experiences in the series may be new to you, your partner or to both of you. These audios are a great way to relax into discovering what you want to enjoy together. There can also be a thrill in being told by us what you are to do in such an intimate situation. You can let yourself go and just do what we suggest to each other.
Be a little naughty!
Keep checking back for release dates and links.

It would seem that PayPal have had a change of heart? Smashwords CEO, Mark Coker has announced that he has been informed by the Directors of PayPal that they are now NOT going to seek to censor legal fiction. Here is an extract from his recent e-mail of March 13th.
Yesterday afternoon I met with PayPal at their office in San Jose, where they informed me of their decision to modify their policies to allow legal fiction.
Effective last night, we rolled back the Smashwords Terms of Service to its pre-February 24 state.
It's been a tumultuous, nerve-wracking few weeks as we worked to protect the right of writers to write and publish legal fiction.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to Smashwords authors, publishers and customers. You stood up and made your voice known.
There is a collective sigh of relief in the publishing world but many authors remain concerned that this is something that could happen again at any time.
It is you, the fiction buying public, who also need to make your feelings clear. The recent runaway success of the erotic novel ‘50 Shades of Grey’ and the extensive media coverage of same in the past few days may just have had something to do with the rethink by PayPal. In the end money talks loudest.
(All I need is for PayPal to rethink their freezing of my account last August.... )
29th February - An extra day to comment on PayPal and a NEW anthology call for stories.
The debate rages on, Gillian Colbert wrote most eloquently on the Rights being infringed and Wrongs being done by PayPal and others, read her words HERE.
Today sees a NEW call for quality erotic fiction from writers to contribute to an e-book and Audio anthology to be jointly published by smotp.com via Audible.co.uk and an e-book publisher to be announced (contracts pending) The Honey Trap: Sexy, Seductive Spies will be hot and thrilling. Read the call on the Authors Info pages.

This is a quotation put up on another author’s blog as a reaction to the escalating PayPal Censorship assault on erotica e-book publishers and writers. I have some sympathy with the sentiments!
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

PayPal now decides what you can and can’t read.
PayPal have issued an ultimatum to the internet publishing industry that affects the world wide ebook reading community. PayPal have threatened to withdraw, and in some cases have already suspended their services to publishers who do not toe PayPal’s arbitrary Censorship guidelines. The world’s public no longer have the freedom to choose what they wish to read, PayPal have decided that for you.
1,000’s of titles are being withdrawn from sale by many, many publishers this weekend. Be aware that if you have a PayPal account and purchase ANYTHING that PayPal determine is unacceptable to them, they can, and will suspend your account without warning and confiscate all the funds therein. You have no right of appeal and no legal rights to force them to do otherwise.
This site suffered from their actions last August, now it is the turn of every publisher of erotica on the planet who uses the PayPal service.
Keep no money in your PayPal account if you can’t afford to lose it!

BACK AT LAST! 7th February 2012 (4 years, almost to the day, since this site began)
It has been a difficult two months with a great deal happening since this site was last up and running. Observant regular visitors will note the different appearance and the current lack of content. Over the next few days that will change with most of the content and services becoming re-available.
Merchant services are still proving to be a problem but I hope to remedy that soon (it feels like I have been saying that forever, actually I have, since August last year!) However, all my commercial output is available to acquire from Smashwords, Amazon and Audible.
The latest Good News is the successful conclusion of the Vegas Windows Project. The e-book of great stories by the EAA writers at the EAACON in Las Vegas last September has been released for sale under the title. ‘Voyeur Eyes Only: erotic encounters in Sin City’. (The link is in the NEWS column)
On St. Valentine’s Day (14th Feb) the two Volume Audio Edition of the anthology will become available from Audible, don’t miss out on that!
Keep checking back, more soon...
