Short Hot Nights, my new e-collection of flash fic and short shorts, features nineteen tales of quick and kinky erotica and is available on Kindle now!
This collection includes a handful of new pieces alongside stories previously published in anthologies from Cleis, Mammoth and more; and on the fabulous women and couples porn sites run by Ms Naughty: For the Girls and Bright Desire. Some of the pieces are just 500 words in length while the longest, ‘Last Christmas’, is a dark, ghostly story set, appropriately enough, when the nights are long and dark. (You can read ‘Last Christmas’ for free on Tamsin Flowers’ blog.) The tales in Short Hot Nights centre on submission, bondage, humiliation and obsession, themes that run through most of my work. Titles include ‘Mind Games’, ‘Sugar Upsets my Vagina’, ‘Betsy’s Blushes’, ‘Memo for the Boss’ and ‘Mad Ghosts of Lust’.
Fun Fact: a couple of years ago, I ran a flash fiction workshop at Eroticon and circulated colour charts of nail polish and wallpaper paint to spark story ideas for participants. ‘Betsy’s Blushes’ is a spanking story inspired by the Farrow and Ball paint, Nancy’s Blushes. Wanting to ensure I stayed on the right side of copyright law and not get sued, I changed my main character’s name. (A less fun fact: ‘Betsy’s Blushes’ was slated to appear in a Cleis anthology until the company was bought out and numerous scheduled titles got cancelled. Such is publishing!)
I’m not writing much erotica these days, nor (as you can probably tell!), am I blogging much. However, I’m thrilled that I’ve been able to gather together the bulk of my flash and short shorts into a single volume, and to pair this with last year’s collection of my longer-length short stories, On My Knees. If you do decide to buy, I hope you enjoy the read, and particular thanks to anyone and everyone who leaves reviews. They really do help sales, even if they’re only a sentence or two long.
