Say Please

There have been so many wonderful reviews for this awesome collection of writings. I'm not sure what to add to the praise, to be honest.

I'm still in a bit of shock to be included in and surrounded by so many amazingly talented authors. Every time I've finished reading one of the stories in the book I find myself in awe of not only the writing but of how it effects me.

Each story takes me somewhere new. Places I've only touched the surface of in my mind are brought to life within the words and imagery. Well written stories, to me, add to the eroticism. Words are sexy when woven together in a beautifully written erotic story. These stories are incredibly well written making them amazingly sexy.

There's something for everyone in this book. Listen to Daddy and pick up your copy from Cleis Press. You won't be disappointed. Check out the Say Please blog for up to date tour information, as well.

Say the magic word and fulfill your deepest desires for discipline and surrender, domination and submission, and the heightened sensations of BDSM play. One request opens up a fantasy world of classic dungeon scenes, bondage and restraint, floggers and spankings, sadism and masochism, very hot sex and so much more. True to form, Sexsmith queers classic gender dynamics, with a femme daddy in Alysia Angel's "Feathers Have Weight," and genderqueer bois who earn their right to flag black in Sassafras Lowrey's "Black Hanky." In "The Cruelest Kind," Kiki DeLovely's naughty narrator gets her just desserts from her butch in a back alley. D.L. King's top makes her submissive strip before an unseen audience in "A Public Spectacle." Face slapping can be a hard limit or the most delicious craving, as Rachel Kramer Bussel's protagonist finds out in "A Slap in the Face." Whether you dream of surrendering to a lover or of weilding your power, Say Please to the erotic inspiration within.

  1. I love this book! Just now finished reading all the stories and I look forward to going back and reading several of my favorites out of order - including yours, natch! Then I'll probably go back and read them all in published order. I love the way each story holds its own, while strengthening the overall theme of the entire work. Big fan here!
