Eden Connor Interview

March 5, 2012

This weekend, I did an interview with Eden Connor about Paypal, Erotica, and Female Desires. Go check it out and say hello! She’s also doing other interviews with readers and writers recently affected by the erotica ban like Sessha Batto and Remittance [...]

Paypal’s Corporate Power

February 29, 2012

Last week soured me. Some of you have probably already heard about Paypal and their issues with Bookstrand and Smashwords, but for those of you that don’t follow those circles, Paypal has forced them (and paypal says they were forced by one of the credit card companies) to no longer allow websites to be served by them if they have certain content. That content, right now, is pseudo-incest, [...]

Taboo Erotica

Drow Society

I have spent a lot of time reflecting on sexism in the Drow society, how it reflects on our own prejudices, and specifically, how certain authors ignore the set world in order to better be able to relate with the society. For those of you unfamiliar with drow society in Forgotten Realms, a quick overview. The Drow have a matriarchal society that is principally Chaotic Evil, but often tends [...]

January 20, 2012

Ocera launched on December 4, 2011, and we have an exclusive interview with the author, Joelle D. Haskell, about the process, the characters in Ocera and more! So firstly, how about a little about yourself. How long have you been writing? I started writing as soon as I could write — little comics with just the words “yes” “no” and “hello” when I was 4, [...]
