A month! That’s quite a lot of me.
If you’re not already, I hope you’ll become a regular at Alison’s super-smoochy salon.
Discover what my best time is for writing and what happens for me when I write. Stay tuned for the low-down on my ideal man, the colour of my bedsheets and my inner voices. There’ll be sexy excerpts from my smut and Alison will be giving away goodies, including a signed copy of my latest novel, Split.
So take a stroll over there. The lights are low, we’re drinking pastis and it feels like we have all the time in the world. Cheers everybody! Here’s to sex and decadence.

I think that’s all my news. Weird.
No, I tell a lie. I do have news: Asking for Trouble received a great ‘five flame’ review on Bluegrass Romance Reviews. They say: ‘ASKING FOR TROUBLE is a flaming hot erotica novel that will leave you speechless. Ms. Lloyd gives a candid view of her lead character’s life … Nothing is off limits and the boundaries between reality and fantasy soon become a blur. I must say the writing is captivating and the storytelling superb.’
‘Jealousy is all the fun you think they had.’
- Erica Jong
The next four letters – I, J, K, L – in Alison Tyler‘s adorable alphasmut series are now available. I’m in J is for Jealousy (US here) with ‘Such a Special Couple’, a story about a woman who finds pictures of her boyfriend’s ex in his forbidden ‘Bluebeard room’. She’s not happy.
My contributor’s copies arrived today and I’m thrilled to see I’m there with fellow filthsters Nikki Magennis, Shanna Germain, Sommer Marsden and Jeremy Edwards. Today, Alison’s featuring J is for Jealousy on her blog so head that way for more.
Billy, the main vampire in my novella, The Vampire’s Heart, is quite literally a green-eyed monster: ‘His eyes were as hauntingly green as the aurora borealis that sometimes lit the northern skies.’ Check out this fabulous review from Tumperkin who writes about my ‘startling and lovely prose. [Lloyd] is such a visual writer. You see and feel every detail.’ Ah, that makes me happy.
And if you’re in the UK and want to spend money on some smut, now’s your chance. There are bargains galore on Amazon. Get the chart-topping Asking for Trouble for only £3.59! Darker Than Love and Lust Bites for just £3.99! And since you’ve saved yourself so much money, why not treat yourself to Split which is a snip at £5.99! And hell, while you’re there you may as well add Jealousy for £6.39. Hurry while stocks last!
I think I’ll stop there before I start sounding cheap.
The image is a bit ropey but who gives a damn? Yesterday, Asking for Trouble made it to number one on Amazon UK’s bestselling erotica chart! It’s been at number two plenty in its life but I’ve never seen it at these dizzy heights before. Hurrah! I have peaked!
Split, my dark, haunting tale of submission, bondage and puppetry got its official US release yesterday, January 1st. Also hitting the shelves was Lust Bites, three hot and sexy vampire novellas, one of which is mine. Actually my story, The Vampire’s Heart, is set in the Arctic so it’s pretty damn chilly.
Personally, I can’t think of a better way to welcome in the new year than with a simultaneous release and some strange, wondrous smut, so I’m giving away some goodies. Add a comment before 10th January and you could win one of two copies of my ‘Gothic tour-de-force’, Split. I’m afraid I don’t have many spare copies of Lust Bites so if you wanted a vampire, you’d have to beg especially hard. But it might be worth begging because look, we got a great review from Ashley Lister!
Check out Lust Bites (the blog!) this Saturday, 5th Jan, where I’ll be offering some sexiness from Split and having a little farewell tea party. It’ll be my last post over there for some time because, alas, I’m hanging up my LB hat for 2008. I’ll miss being part of the gang but my decision, though it hasn’t been easy to make, is a positive one for me. I’ll still be dropping in to make lewd jokes etc, but I will be erratic.
Eyes right for the new cover of the German translation of my deeply dirty Victorian romance, Darker Than Love. It’s heaps nicer than the UK cover but, as ever, why oh why must they insist on sexualising women on books supposedly aimed at women? I am a woman. I like looking at men’s bodies. They’re very beautiful indeed. I would have been so happy with, say, a nicely-muscled, sepia-toned back but what do I get instead? Tits! I wake up with tits every day. Why would I want them on my bookshelf?
Sorry. Is that giving you weird mental images? Me too.
Please comment to win some smut!
