"A is for Anal, short teaser story (1800 words).
Michael suspects Grace's demure reserve hides a carnal nature. Michael introduces Grace to her naughty side and shows her the pleasures of backdoor play.
B is for Beach, short story (3200 words).
Every fantasized about sex on the beach? Erica and Ben have been talking online and now they meet in person for the first time.
C is for Cock Ring, short story (2600 words).
A Mistress Ven story -- On his second visit to his new dominatrix, a new submissive experiences the combination of a cock ring and cat o' nine tails."
The stories in The ABCs so far are all climbs into a beginning or middle of story - there small amount of introduction to the story before the actual love/sex scene, these just pretty much dive in. ;) The stories are short, and very much all about erotica.
A is for Anal is a short novella that introduces Grace one uptight, prim and proper business woman to the pleasures of sex by her new colleague/boyfriend, and not just any sex because Michael wants to show Grace just enjoyable little behind play can be. Short, to the point, sexy and little naughty, but in just the right way. It's a free read so go check it out at Amazon!
B is for Beach is another short story, Erica and Ben have been dating online for a while, when they finally meet after all the nervousness they hit it off and after dinner walk on the beach gets naughty. The story was okay, but I would have liked to have heard more from Ben, who kept pretty quiet.
C is for Cock ring. Now I actually read D is for Domination before this so I knew about Mistress Ven and her brand spanking new submissive ( bun intended ;) ). Though graphic, this one was better than D I think, the submissive questioning if what's going on is too early, but ending up quite pleased. This is for BDSM readers, including spanking, the aforementioned cock ring and more.
Heat Rating :
Niina : Welcome to For The Love of Reading, Ms. Mallory, I’m glad you could stop by! Let’s get started! Can you tell my readers here 4 fun unknown facts about you so we can break the ice?
Malia Mallory : First, I should be giving birth in about a month. That's a pretty big fact. Second, I really hate doing dishes. Third, I always thought I was a cat person but now I have a dog that I'm quite fond of. Fourth, my favorite flower is the calla lily.
Niina : Tell us little what your collection of novellas “The ABCs of Erotica” is about, why did you decide to write it?
Malia : I've had the idea for The ABCs of Erotica kicking around in my brain for quite a long time. I thought it would be interesting to do a themed story for each letter using an erotic word. Little did I know how hard it would be to come up with things for some letters like Q, X or Z.
I've been releasing some of the stories as singles, some as bundles and some are available both ways. If all goes well, I might take another pass through the alphabet.
Niina : How would you define erotica as a genre?
Malia : I think erotica has a pretty wide range actually. You can get romance with heavy erotic elements. I believe what I've written so far (though I plan to branch out a bit) is pretty squarely erotica. The sexual elements are the main plot. There is relationship between the characters but it isn't as prominent as what you would find in erotic romance. To me, it depends on a reader's tastes and mood to determine what they would enjoy.
Niina : How did you find your cover and if you didn't take part in the search, what is your opinion of it?
Malia : I did take part in trying to work out the covers for The ABCs of Erotica series. My husband actually did the work. I provided him with a selection of pictures and some initial thoughts and he ran with it. I'm pretty happy with it. I think it is suggestive but yet playful. We are utilizing the same basic design in different colors for different letters. Probably each color will be for about three or four stories.
Niina : What are you working on right now? Can you give us a sneak peak?
Malia : I have been working on the sequel to Mia's Cop Craving which is entitled Mia's Cop Craving - Double Teamed. For those of you who read the first installment, Mia let it slip to Rogan that she had a fantasy involving two men. In the second story, Rogan has set this up for her. I did post an excerpt from this new story on my blog at http://wp.me/p1OkWU-6s.
Niina : What's the best part about being an author? And what’s the worst?
Malia : Well, there are several things that are positive. One, my schedule can be flexible. I also like being able to entertain my readers. On the negative though, having a flexible schedule means you need to be able to discipline yourself to do the work. That is something I struggle with.
Niina : Now to more personal questions! What’s the biggest turn on in a guy, fictional or real life?
Malia : I've always been a big fan of nice, strong hands and a great smile.
Niina : What’s the sexiest article of clothing on a guy?
Malia : None? In the alternate, it's a nice change of pace to see a guy all dressed up, nice suit etc.
Niina : What does it take to write a really hot love scene?
Malia : I usually listen to some music. Also, I kind of try to put my mind in the scene. Sometimes this takes a little time.
Niina : Naughtiest book you’ve read?
Malia : I'm not sure I can share that :)
Niina : Which is sexier, tattoos or piercings on a guy?
Malia : That is a tough one. I'm not super into either though I will admit I have seen both tattoos and piercings that were well done. I think I would fall into the less is more camp with both of these items. I'd rather see something subtle.
Niina : What is your guilty pleasure?
Malia : I wish I could get more pedicures and massages!
Niina : What is your signature dish?
Malia : At Christmas time, I make fruitcake from a secret family recipe. I know it has a bad reputation, but seriously this is good.
Niina : Before we finish, here are some Quick Fire Questions:
Night or day? I'm more of a night person.
Pick-up or Mini-van? If I have to choose between these two, a mini-van would probably fit my needs better.
Beer or Wine? Wine for sure.
Boots or Heels? Boots
M&Ms: With or Without Peanuts? I like them with almonds.
Pizza or Burger? If it is a good burger, maybe I'd go for that.
Date: Going to Park or Going to Movies? I like to go to the movies. I don't get to go as often as I like.
Friends or Will & Grace? I think Will & Grace had humor that was a bit edgier.
Drama or Comedy? Usually comedy.
Winter or Summer? Summer.
Jewels or Chocolates? Chocolate
Men: Alpha-male or submissive? The alpha.
Men: Clean Shaven or Stubble? Clean shaven absolutely.
Bad boys or good guys? Good guys win in the end.
Brunettes or Blonds? No real preference.
Vampires or werewolves? Are the vampires nice? I'll go that way.
Cops or Cowboys? Oooh a tough one, cowboys?
Time-Travel or Sci-fi? Science fiction
Romance or Erotica/Erotic Romance? I like my romance to have a bit of heat.
Male POV or Female POV (Point Of View)? We usually get female POV as readers but it is nice to understand the male sometimes.
Times New Roman or Courier? Times New Roman
Pens or pencils? Gel pen or mechanical pencil.
