Meet the Author

Hedonist (or simply “H.”) is an author of Erotica / Erotic Romance based in rainy England. Addicted to caffeine, chocolate and impure thoughts, she likes to write short stories and serial novels dealing with those aspects of the human condition that we all think about, yet often dare not discuss openly. No-one is perfect, neither are her characters, which make them all the more relatable and well-liked by her fans.Her ideal man isn’t a model with 6 pack abs and a fake Colgate smile, so you’ll not find a lot of those in her books. She likes real men, strong men with a soft side (soft all over?); a confident front and a hint of self doubt hidden inside that only comes out when you pull the walls down (or literally, the clothes off).

Erzabet Bishop has had a love affair with books since she first started reading. Just recently, she discovered that writing naughty stories was even more fun. She lives with her husband, menagerie of dogs and a mountain of books she is sure will crush her one day in her sleep.You can find Erzabet on Facebook, Pinterest, and Goodreads. Follow her updates on Twitter: @erzabetbishop and her erotica blog: erzabetsenchantments.blogspot.com/

K M Dylan was born in Paris in 1982, spent many formative years in France and lives now in New York in the East Village. She is a former model with a French mother and American father. Her novel is a fictionalized memoir, and is only very loosely based on her actual loves and adventures.She is obsessed with beauty in its myriad manifestations and the erotic. In her spare time, she soaks in the NYC art scene and travels.For more information about the author and her erotic novel, Cult of Beauty: The Secret Life of a Supermodel, visit kmdylan.com and also her tumblr blog kmdylan.tumblr.com where she posts thoughts and pictures that inspire her erotica (WARNING: NSFW Mature content for adults only).

Jason Jaxx is an author of erotica, starting out on the journey of self-publishing. An avid reader and music lover, he is, obviously, a fan of erotica and adult-themed entertainment. He is happily married to a beautiful woman who shares his belief that fantasy is essential to a healthy sex life. Holding a stressful job that offers no creative outlet, he views writing as a welcome release and challenges himself to explore different themes and styles.He does not enjoy writing about himself in the third person.Please follow him on Twitter @JasonJaxx if you like what you read here or want to find out more.....

If you need to find me on any weekday morning, then I’m usually to be found in the far corner of my favourite cafe, with a large black coffee in one hand, and a ballpoint pen in the other. I spend each and every morning immersed in thoughts of all things kinky, thoroughly enjoying the fact that my fellow caffeine sippers have no idea what I’m writing.The locals all assume I’m either studying for another degree, virtuously writing children’s stories, or am deeply engrossed in the world’s longest shopping list.The way I make a living is a constant source of surprise to me, as I should really be stowed away in a dusty university library somewhere, making some use of my collection of degrees, writing learned papers on Medieval England. I swear that at no point on the suggested careers list I was given at university did it say, “This girl should write erotica”…After five years of compiling stories and poems, and reviewing other peoples work, I can say without doubt, that there is NO going back for me. Once writing has you in its power you are at its mercy for life. It doesn’t pay well, it leads to constant disappointment, and it takes over every other thing you do - but when the publisher says “Yes,” and the occasional unexpected royalty cheque arrives in the post, it suddenly all seems worthwhile, and I LOVE IT!!

I don't exist. We'll never meet.

Writing is a sickness, an ailment, an addiction. When I’m not writing, I’m thinking about what I have just written and, when I do go to bed, I lay sleeplessly thinking about what I am going to write when I get up and start again next day.I am a night person, an insomniac, the girl at the bar who looks like she should have gone home and maybe has no home to go to. I compose my work in the dead hours between two and six while the city sleeps and the night planes follow the Thames into London, where I was born.When I do sleep, I sleep badly – in spite of the magnets under my mattress that are supposed to orientate my body north to south so the dragon lines pass through the invisible portal at the top of my skull and down to my feet, my best feature, according to my ex-boyfriend.I have written 5 erotic novels including the best-seller "A Girl's Adventure" and my Mother doesn't speak to me because she believes she was parodied in my autobiographical "The Secret Life of Girls." At least Daddy loves me.

Elizabeth likes to explore age-gap scenarios and features older man, younger woman relationships in a great deal of her work. She adores predatory sex and enjoys all types of literature, especially erotica. Her favourite contemporary authors are featured in Gratis Anthology. She loves being tied to the bedposts and...Woodham's Wicked Ways.elizabethwoodham.comT: twitter.com/SecretNarrativeP: pinterest.com/secretnarrative/E: eliza@secretnarrative.com

    Gratis, New Beginnings This is a great anthology by 10 very tale

    Gratis, New Beginnings
    This is a great anthology by 10 very talented writers. I thoroughly enjoyed every single story in this collection. Oh how I wish theses stories were longer but at least they give us a good look at how each authors writing styles are. Now Kay Jaybee, I love all of her stories so I get a little excited when a new one comes out because I know I will never be disappointed.  She was also in the last Gratis Anthology so I was happy to see her in this one too. Sometimes anthologies are the way to go. You get to learn about authors you have never heard about. I am pretty sure I have a few new authors to add to my TBR file!
    I received this copy as a gift from one of the authors.
