The Future is Black by Chanel Ashby

Despite it's suggestive title and lurid sort of cover, The Future is Black is far more than just another generic tale of interracial cuckolding and forced feminization. It's actually a rather imaginative bit of science fiction erotica that jumps back and forth between the present, the near future, and the more distant future to create some real dramatic tension.

The story opens in the more distant future, a time when all the women have died off from a catastrophic plague. We're introduced to two sissies, cute little breeders who are being trained for the day that they're assigned to a Master. As for how we got to that point, and what a sissy can do to help save humanity . . . well, that's the mystery at the heart of the story.

From there, we jump back to the present, where we meet Dillon, his gorgeous trophy wife, and their newly hired black Bull. All Chelsea wants is to become pregnant, and she doesn't care by whom. Reluctant to be so easily cuckolded, Dillon begins taking his company's experimental male enhancement drug so he can be the one to get her pregnant . . . only to discover (far too late) that he's been actually taking mislabeled doses of another experimental drug, Naturally Femme.

Almost immediately, he feels himself being drawn to Jamal, becoming submissive and docile in his presence. As his body begins transforming, taking on more and more feminine characteristics, the sissy finds himself becoming jealous - not that his wife has taken another lover, but Dillon has to compete with her for Jamal's affections. Despite what you might expect of such a tale, there's actually a sweet sort of romance that develops, especially when it becomes clear that Jamal prefers the company of his sissy.

Chanel Ashby brings many of her most popular themes - cuckolds, first time gay, sissies, and gender benders - together here, telling a story that's as erotic as it is imaginative, and as sensual as it is intelligent. Whether the future she explores counts as a fantasy or a nightmare depends solely on the reader.

Lemon Wedges by Briana Lawrence

"It’s ironic, he thinks, that he’s only allowed to openly have certain fetishes."

Lemon Wedges is one of those stories I knew I would love from the very first line. Briana Lawrence spins a short, sassy, surprisingly sensual story. It's fun and thoughtful at the same time, filled with interesting reflections on the idea of fetish, and laced with gorgeous illustrations of fetish exploration.

What makes a fetish?
Does it matter if anybody else knows?
Why are some fetishes more taboo than others?
Are fetishes better when they're shared? 

I loved the contrast of a tatooed, pierced, dark-clothed bad boy getting so weak in the knees over a pair of bright yellow lemon wedges. His fetish begins and ends with the shoes, but he shares a crossdresser's appreciation for the way they look and feel, and the way they alter his entire body shape. His roommate has never given them much thought, but a moment of curiosity quickly gives way to appreciation, and suddenly the door is open to sharing something even deeper.

It all comes down to excitement - it's what defines both the story and the fetish, and Briana does a lovely job of capturing it.

Release Date: September 23, 2015

Aiden Adams, a transgender teen, begins writing in a journal when he moves to a new town named Ashmore and begins “passing." He is counting on everyone to believe that he is the every bit the male he appears to be. Writing in his journal helps him unclog his brain as he writes about the daily struggles he faces as a transgender teenager, his painful past that he is trying to forget, the new friends he is making, and the beautiful girl named Abby whom he has fallen in love with. Aiden has already come out to his open-minded mother, but will Abby be just as understanding?

When Aiden loses his journal, he worries that the secret he is trying so desperately to keep will come out. And if it does, how will everyone react? Will Abby be able to cope with everyone knowing that he is transgender? Will his new friends accept Aiden for who he really is—a boy—or will everything fall apart?

Excerpt:

The beautiful eyes belong to the beautiful girl from the library. The one I notice every day for one reason or another. The one I sketched on a page in my journal. I’m such a creep.
“Hi,” she says loudly.
I take out my earbuds and turn off my radio that’s still in my pocket. “Hi,” I say back.
She's on one knee to be eye-level with me, but she spins and sits down beside me, really close. Wait a minute…
SHE’S GOT ON THE COOLEST BOOTS!
They’re shiny black leather and they go up to her knees. The bottom of them is a three-inch platform, all clunky and sexy—I mean cool. She has black skinny jeans tucked into them.
“I just wanted to make sure you were alive,” the girl says. “Why are you all the way over here, by yourself?”
“I don’t know anyone,” I admit.
She holds out her right hand. “I’m Abby Abernathy.”
I grasp her hand. Handshakes are always awkward. Her hand is really warm or mine is really cold.
“I’m Aiden Adams.”
“Nice to meet you—now you know someone.” She smiles.

“I guess I do.”

Roommate's Delight by JC Winchester

Some stories take their time teasing the reader, while others just dive right in. Roommate's Delight is one of the latter. JC Winchester opens his tale with Kylie's surprise discovery of her transsexual roommate, a moment of honest shock on her part and even more honest defensive anger from Dakota.

Despite Dakota's fears of being outed and ousted from the college dorms, Kylie is mature enough to let their emotions subside and discuss the matter later. When they do - fueled with more than just a little alcohol - we learn just how tenuous Dakota's position is, and just how little she has indulged her own femininity.

To say that conversation leads to more is hardly a spoiler, or there wouldn't be a story here. What's wonderful about the story is the way that relationship develops, moving from drunken exploration, to curiosity, to drunken reciprocation, and to something approaching romance. It's a realistic story, and one that deals sympathetically with transgender issues, further distinguished by some genuinely touching erotic moments.

Roommate's Delight is just that - a delight.

Between the Covers . . . with J.C. Winchester

Good morning, all!

It's been a while since we last hosted a guest, but now that my own life is getting back to normal I'm hoping to get back to helping you learn more about the faces behind the books.

J.C. Winchester is a life-long reader who is fortunate enough to enjoy a life in the mountains where he balances writing with riding, hiking, and fishing. Although it's his transgender fiction that's likely to be of the most interest to readers here, he is a diverse author of several themes and subjects.


♥ Thanks so much for stopping by, JC! For those who may be new to you and your work, can you tell us a little about yourself?

Thanks for having me! I am an erotica author who writes over most of the span of erotica. I'm most well known for my two series, Shelley and Fraternity Fluffer. I also recently started a new transgender series, Roommates Delight.

When I'm not writing I'm usually working on my house or feeding some of the many animals on my property, including horses, ducks, and chickens. We like to live a slightly simpler lifestyle, preserve foods, cook from scratch, and raise animals. When not on the property we do a lot of hiking and camping, and are slowly getting into kayaking and stand-up paddleboard (SUP).

♥ When did you begin writing and what prompted you to write erotica?

I've been writing on and off for about twenty years now. I was fortunate enough to have a couple of English teachers who were very writing intensive and liked to enter their classes in local contests. Through them I was published in one of the local papers several times and placed in one of the contests, which gave me the confidence to continue.

I had stumbled across a free erotica site when I was a teenager and enjoyed reading the stories there. Over a few years I'd forget about it, then come back to the site, wrote a little for an offshoot of the site that did choose-your-own-adventure stories, then became busy, and for a long time didn't have much of a muse going. About three years ago I remembered the site and wandered back onto the forums where an old friend of mine coerced me into joining their Survivor contest, which was a year long and I placed 4th. Been hooked since.

♥ Your work has been described as literary erotica. What is it, for you, that's most essential to elevate an erotic tale to a level where readers see some sort of traditional literary merit within it?

A good, solid, story line that doesn't necessary focus on sex, but incorporates it. All too often erotica writers have a sex scene in mind and you can tell the entire story is them very focused on getting to that scene without enjoying the ride.

♥ The 'Shelley' series was your first foray into the realm of transgender erotica. What was it that first attracted you to the idea of a transgender character or experience?

I was writing in the Survivor contest and part of the challenge was to put stories in every category on the site. One of the categories is transsexual/crossdressers. I was curious and read through a few of the stories on the site, finding that most of them dealt with futa characters, forced crossdressing, and very dominant male-to-female transgendered people. I was quite curious how they would take a character who was more feminine. The series continues as I learn more about the struggles of living a life as a transgendered person and the joys as we progress as a society.

♥ Your latest tale, 'Roommate's Delight', seems a very different sort of transgender story. What did it allow you to explore that the 'Shelley' saga hasn't?

Different mindsets and stages of life. Dakota, the main character in Roommate's Delight, is younger than Shelley and much less comfortable with who she is. She's also much less experienced at having a love life. While Shelley is exploring herself, she has a more stable base, most notably she has Matt who has a good job and loves her dearly. Dakota doesn't have those things. They also have different goals in life, for Shelley she's a bit more interested in settling down with Matt while Dakota is full bore into college and making a career for herself.

With Dakota I also plan to spend more time exploring the different types of sexuality, something I dabbled a bit with Shelley but haven't focused on. Dakota's in a better setting to really explore individuality and each person's sexual identity. Shelley's storyline is about to take a sharp turn after the events during the Halloween story, sending it off in a very different direction from Dakota's story.

♥ If we can talk about you for a moment, I know you're a "seeker of adventure" and a "long time lover of the outdoors." To what extent have your own life experiences influenced your writing?

You know I think the biggest influence was my time in the Navy. There are a number of people who will imply that having served during Don't Ask Don't Tell that perhaps these things make you uncomfortable. To be blunt, I served with a number of people that we knew were gay, lesbian, and at least two that enjoyed crossdressing in their free time. Know how much we cared? We didn't. It only mattered to us if they qualified their watchstations and were good workers. I had already been fairly open minded towards others but the experience certainly allowed me to become very comfortable with people and their individual sexual identities.

The outdoors features rather prominently in many of my stories, when I can it's a setting that I prefer to work with. It doesn't suit all of the characters or stories well, but it can really make an ideal backdrop. It's also an underused setting but one so rich in experiences and emotions that it begs to be used. I've done quite a bit of hiking, camping, rafting, and love to share those experiences with others so I do that through my stories.

♥ Do you have a muse, someone whose image or memory drives the romance and passion in your work, or do you take inspiration where you can?

I take inspriration where I can. One of my favorite hobbies is just to observe how people interact with each other. We all have our little habits and changes in facial expressions as we interact.

♥ I know you list several authors as friends on your website, but is there an author who influences you the most?

Indirectly I love Jim Butcher's writing style so I try to take lessons from his books as well as his talks and essays on writing.

Directly would be Patient Lee who has taught me a number of lessons on the English language and made a large number of suggestions on how to improve the flow of my stories.

♥ Finally, I know there's a Halloween story coming up for Shelley, but what else can we look forward to in the near future?

I have an erotica horror novelette coming out in the anthology Erotica after Midnight. The novelette features a vampiress who is trying to revive her master by sacrificing those she views as corrupt souls to the gods.

For the rest of the year I'm hoping to finish off a novella with the vampiress above, a stand-alone Christmas novella, and three more novelettes with Shelley, Dakota, and Lisa from the Fraternity Fluffer series.
