Kink - Margie Church Guest Post



Kinks. We all have them. And not just the ones that cramp up your back after you've shoveled snow, or referencing a certain British band. I'm talking about the ones you don't chat about 'round the water cooler at work.  Well, if you do, then I'm applying for a job at your firm!
These are the secret desires that tickle your sexual fancy. You may voice them to your lover, who may act upon them if you are fortunate. Or they are kept close, stored in the recesses of your mind, hoping one day, you find someone with the key to unlock them.
Such is the case with Amy Gage. In the first book, Razor: Desire's Edge, Amy makes a bold decision ask her best friend Raine, a FemDom, to help her husband, Bryce, become a switch in the bedroom. Perhaps it’s a latent kink for Amy to know her husband is with another woman?  As the story progresses, amid the emotional tumult, Amy finds herself losing more of her sexual inhibitions, and begins to accept she has kinks that will not be ignored or suppressed. That includes an intimate relationship with Raine. In the sequel, Razor: Love's Storm, Amy has the opportunity to experience fetishes far beyond the threshold of her once vanilla experiences. She indulges in decadent Devil's Food that is some of the most sensuously delicious kink put to words.
Having lived the Lifestyle for a decade, Raine has natural hesitations about working with her best friend's husband. Especially since Bryce has a dominant personality. Their mind games in the first book made Bryce supremely uncomfortable. Little by little, he recognized the benefit of being a switch. In Love's Storm, he and Amy make a commitment to really understand Raine, by attending a weekend party. Bryce is pushed to his limit when he watches Lucien, Raine's Master, play with her. Jealousy runs rampant between him and Lucien. One thing is for sure. Lucien gives Raine something only he can. And Raine still needs and wants it. As the triad of lovers moves forward, what other adjustments will Amy, Bryce and Raine have to make?
It's okay to embrace those thoughts that make you quiver. In Razor: Love's Storm, we intend to make you quiver with kinks such as these:
Spanking
Suspension while being flogged
Role play
Foot worship
Latex clothing
Edging
Anal sex
D/s
F/F
F/M/F
Sensory deprivation
Voyeurism

Razor: Love's Storm by Margie Church and K.B. Cutter

Their delicious, naughty secret is out, and it's open season on Amy and Bryce's decision to add a third person to their marriage.

All the talking in the world can't convince critics that Amy and Bryce's marriage is rock-solid, and there are no secrets between them. Business associates, friends, and family condemn their choice to live and love in a polyamorous relationship with Raine, a FemDom. Others meddle to undermine Bryce's business and marriage. Even Raine's Master thinks she's making a huge mistake.

With no allies, and scorn coming from every direction, love and determination must lead Amy, Bryce, and Raine through love's storm.

Their journey began in Razor: Desire's Edge and continues in Razor: Love's Reflection.

12 Months of Sascha - March Madness and a new Print Release!

Dark Sensualities and Primal Instincts is out in PRINT!


“A wonderful, erotic storyteller … turns you on and tugs your heartstrings at the same time!” -Sabrina Smith Moses. Sascha Illyvich, the famed “Bad Boy of Romance” is noted for his dark, paranormal erotica – and the best of it is here in this enthralling collection which includes a complete novel novel of vampires and eros (Dark Traders), a wonderful novelette of lycanthropy and romance (Wolf Magic), plus more unforgettable novelettes and short stories. “His books make me wet.” -Pinky Francisco
There’s a possibility I’ll have copies for sale at Frolicon FYI.

A little background on the book is due.

Wolf Magic for starters, is actually the first book in my Opeth Pack Saga. The series is loosely based on the anime "Wolf's Rain" which spawned the idea for my series of wolves who were created by the Hungarian Fertility Goddess, then kicked out of Heaven because of distrust.  I focused more on the romantic interests between the characters and my damaged heroes in each story written.  There are actually four books in various stages of edits and the rest of the series is currently under control of the Corvisiero Agency.  Since I have both agents working on larger projects for me, I may pull The Opeth Pack Saga and rest it here at Sizzler Editions.  We'll see.

The series will only be six books long and track the rebirth of the Opeth Pack as a uniting force among wolves the world over.

Only the villain in Wolf Magic and hero in Wolf Magic have one partner while the other characters in the series have two mates.

 The heroine in Wolf Magic also is another rarity in romance fiction.  She's a good bit older than our traditional heroines and she's not exactly stick thin either. Yes, she's my standard redhead

NEW DAY AND NEW SITE DAWNS FOR SIZZLER EDITIONS!

It's something we've been keeping under wraps for months. But now it can be told.

Beginning March 16th, our Sizzler Editions store will go dark for two weeks while we migrate it to a brand new location, shopping cart, and design. You'll still see the signature red and black Sizzler colors. But visitors and authors will both find a far more convenient and powerful design. Our new shopping cart will allow us to make more of series, and to group books by different authors on the same theme, like "Pirates" or "Sex in Infamous Cities." The look will be far more compact. At a glance readers will see title, cover, description, and tabs to buy the book, see the author bio, and bring up any book trailer or audio interview.  Scrolling will be minimal or nonexistent on most pages.

We will probably still be adding finishing touches like subsubcategories and the like when the new site goes live on April 1

We're pretty excited.

Mark it on your calendar. April 1. 

The new Sizzler Editions website. It's coming...

April 1 - no fooling!

San Francisco, CA

Why:
Because Bawdy shows you a very real side of San Francisco's Perveratti & that person you sat next to last month at the show. Next month, it's your turn!
When you have to choose between a story of someone sneaking out of a zen monastery to attend sex parties on the sly, or a story about a queer person making a deal with God to send her the right beautiful butch - if she only puts up with all those gay exorcisms. This Wednesday: 'The Razor's Edge'

- Confessions of a Pickup Artist Chaser Author Clarisse Thorn
- Erotica Writer/Publisher/Author M Christian
- TechnoPagan & Seeker of the Divine Darrin Barnett

Are you seeking the path to sexual enlightenment? So enlighten us: with so many options out there, how do you choose the one that’s right for you? No matter how you answer, take out that ball gag and get your yogapants-clad ass over to the Verdi Club this Wednesday night. From Doms to Tantrikas, from those who dabble on the weekends to those who live a 24/7 lifestyle, come enjoy an evening of ‘don’t’ ask DO TELL’ from three dimensional people who won’t be adding this information to their Linked In profile anytime soon.

Join us for this month’s Bawdy Storytelling – America’s original sex + storytelling salon featuring Real People & Rockstars - for an aural exploration into the darker, hotter, and REAL-er side of sex with an edge, and the search to find your true sexual calling. Whatever you’re expecting this evening to look like, forget it...remember, this is San Francisco: the truth is WAY more interesting than anything you could make up!

Her writing has appeared across the Internet in places like The Guardian, AlterNet, Feministe, Jezebel, Ms. Media, The Rumpus, and Time Out. She has delivered lectures across the USA, from museums to universities to SXSW-interactive. In 2010, Clarisse returned to the USA after working on HIV mitigation in southern Africa.

Find Clarisse's blog at clarissethorn.com, or follow her on Twitter @ClarisseThorn.

- M.Christian is a renowned - and delightfully notorious - writer, editor, and publisher of erotica. His work has appeared in literally hundreds of anthologies (including Best American Erotica, Best Gay Erotica, Best Lesbian Erotica, Best Bisexual Erotica, Best Fetish Erotica and ... well, you get the idea), magazines, and sites - and he is the author of ten collections and seven novels. But Shar Rednour, author of The Femme's Guide to the Universe puts it best when she says that "M.Christian is a sick fuck: the reason I still read erotica." His site is www.mchristian.com

- Airial Clark is a San Francisco Bay Area-based parenting expert, sexologist and founder of The Sex-Positive Parent. She completed research for her master’s thesis on race, parenting, and alternative sexuality in 2012, all the while raising her two sons as a single parent, who are now pre-teens. Ms. Clark is a contributing writer for several award-winning online media outlets including the Good Vibrations Magazine, Shades Magazine, Oakland Local and Fearless Press where she writes on the intersections of parenting, identity and sexuality. In collaboration with organizations, including the Center for Sex and Culture and the Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality, Airial has led workshops where she provides parents and caregivers with the tools they need to become the resident sexuality expert for their families.

- Sullivan is an aspiring epidemiologist who likes getting the shit beaten out of her, embroidery and communicable diseases.

- Darrin Barnett is a swordsman, itinerant warrior-priest, Pagan, singer, soldier, actor, tech geek, shrilly liberal political hobbyist, and armchair terrorist. Arrogant and erudite and entirely too gleeful with verbal legerdemain. You'd think he'd settle on one or two of these things and dedicate his life, but so far the closest he's gotten to "what he wants to be when he grows up" is a worshipper of Woman.

- "Mark Growden's music combines elements from classical jazz ensembles, New Orleans-style brass bands, cabaret fanfare, and circus troupes with the stark honesty of Appalachian folk ballads and African-American prison songs." - Taos New
