Out Now: SIN STREET [The Sinners Trilogy] by Harry Barstead (Jack Owen Jardine)

There's special and then there's special: Sizzler Editions is extremely pleased and proud to announce the re-publication of SIN STREET, the The controversial 1960s "sleaze" paperback classic by sexologist and social critic Jack Owen Jardine - writing as Harry Barstead!

The controversial 1960s "sleaze" paperback classic!

“Early Sixties sleaze … well-written, as well as populated by some vividly drawn characters. Jardine could spin a good sleaze yarn in addition to his SF … well worth reading.” —Novelist James Reasoner on the short stories of Harry Barstead

From the text:
“I’M FOR SALE!” She winked slyly, wiggling closer to him until he felt the pulsing warmth of her bare thigh brushing against his. "Like to buy me, honey?" 
These young women lay it on the line with all men. They walk the streets looking for a man, any man with the price to pay for borrowed passion. The trade their bodies for the strange need known only to the women on Sin Street. 
The classic novel of forbidden lust in the murky alleys of thrill-mad cities...
The classic real-life stories of female sex workers in the early 1960s—a forbidden subject in midcentury USA—brought to life by sexologist and social critic Jack Owen Jardine writing as Harry Barstead, the man who could write collar-wilting sex scenes without using a single explicit word.

“Published in 1963, Sin Street is a collection of short stories about those ladies of the evening. We have seasoned pros, college girls just getting into the business, bored housewives, women regretting choices made. And the men: college boys with more money than sense, cab drivers, two soldiers planning a brothel visit in Algiers during WWII and taking ten years for that dream to come to fruition. There are even a few science fiction stories in the mix. Compared to your average story today, they are restrained. I liked them. Whatever they were, Maddock didn’t beat down the ladies here, make them appear as dirty. They made choices to survive and prosper as each of us do today. I’m glad I found this one.” —Randy Johnson


Here's an extra-special treat: a brand-new erotic BDSM treasure by the one and only Jim Lyon.  Check out VIRTUAL REALITY MISTRESS for hotter-than-hot kinky science fiction!

While meandering from website to website during an episode of insomnia, Jody ends up on an esoteric blog describing virtual reality software and accoutrements, where an ad for an intriguing product catches his attention. A stunning femme fatale boldly proclaims that Jody can live out all his sexual fantasies in the privacy and safety of his own home by purchasing the Virtual Reality Mistress. To the sleep deprived Jody that sounds like a pretty good idea, so he places an order and a few days later a Fedex package arrives that changes his life forever.

Using information gathered from a battery of assessments and questionnaires filled out by Jody, this product provides him with customized virtual reality fantasies based on his core sexuality. The only trouble is, he is not aware of how dark some of his true desires are. Jody embarks on an always erotic—but sometimes unsettling—journey, determined to make peace with his demons.


It's no surprise that Powerone is our bestselling author of BDSM erotica: he's that good! Check out
his new book, BLACK KNIGHTS, DARK DUNGEON, and be blown away!

An eye-opening novel of the Dark Ages and the men who dominated them!

The Normans invaded the Irish towns and seized them. Some fought back; Lord Harkin was one. He attacked the English villages, but the Normans under the rule of Lord William retaliated, taking Lord Harkin’s beloved wife Caitlin as prisoner. The Normans weren’t gentlemen—and the men and women they conquered learned that the hard way.

Outnumbered, Lord Harkin was unable to mount a direct attack, but he used his cunning, taking the Lord William’s wife as his prisoner. Could Lord Harkin take his revenge against her for what Lord William had done to his own wife? Would they trade captive wives or would they betray each other? Could Caitlin and her handmaidens survive their conquerors?

Powerone brings to life 13th century knights, castles, dungeons, and sexual practices as only he can, with vivid—and sometimes shocking—detail.

Rating: Intense bondage.

This should be a blast: come hear Sizzler Publisher, Jean Marie Stine, and Associate Publisher, M.Christian, do their celebrated class Using Social Media To Grow Your Adult Business And Build Your Client Base - The Working Smarter And Not Harder Way!

Let's face facts: the adult business world has totally, completely changed marketing and advertising tricks that used to work simply don't anymore ... which is why, more than ever, thinking outside the box is key to raising above the rest and, best of all, bring in exposure and, hopefully, sales.

Twitter? Tumblr? Facebook? While there are a lot of options, many of the techniques that a lot of gurus and experts recommend only work for those same experts and gurus ... and not for anyone else.

But in this fun and provocative lecture you'll learn to learn the differences between what other people say you should do and what actually works including when to play by the rules and when not to, how to rise above the rest, and how to manage your marketing time and dollars.

Among some of the subjects covered will be:
- How to blog, tweet and post effectively and efficiently
- How to handle fast media like Twitter versus slower ones like Facebook
- When national social media is what you want and when it's something you don't need
- The power of FREE
- Knowing your audience ... and developing great techniques to reach them
- Understanding the difference between likes, friends and actual sales
- How to make your social media presence rich and interesting without taking valuable time away from your company
- How to think innovatively about advertising, public relations, and marketing that don't involve social media or even the internet
