Happy holidays!

Here’s the blurb
’Tis the season to be… frisky. The Ladylit Fab Five have come together once more for a sizzling seasonal mini-anthology. Decorating the tree or working the holiday shift, at a family party or avoiding the shopping crowds, the ladies in these stories find reason to get merry in any circumstance.

NEW RELEASE: First: Sensual Lesbian Stories of New Beginnings

FirstIf it seems like a long time since we published anything new at Ladylit, it’s because it has been almost three months! But we’re back in the swing of things and kicking off a very busy autumn/winter season with a spectacular new anthology. First: Sensual Lesbian Stories of New Beginnings was edited by the fabulous Cheyenne Blue, who previously edited Lammy and Goldie finalist Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire. The stories in First are all related to first times, be it a first sexual experience or a sexual experience in the context of another first in the protagonist’s life. There is a first boxing match, a first look at a lover after years of blindness, a first around-the-world flight and a first glimpse of the sea. And of course there are a few first lesbian experiences in there as well. The variety of themes makes for a very compelling and hot read that will surely encourage you to try out something new.

Here’s the blurb
Dive into these fifteen sizzling tales of lesbian love and romance and experience the wonder, the joy, and the magic of new beginnings.

A woman sees her lover for the first time after years of blindness. For the first time in her life, a top trusts her girlfriend enough to let her take control. A connection forged in a bar in New Mexico encourages a breast cancer survivor to take a lover. Stories of new love and first lesbian encounters intermingle with other emotional and physical firsts, and the excitement of new experiences: an around the world flight, the thrill of a carnival, and even the first time to see the sea.

With fantastic stories by favorite writers such as Sacchi Green, Harper Bliss, Annabeth Leong, Allison Wonderland, and Jeremy Edwards, the variety in this anthology means there is something for everyone.

NEW RELEASE: Opposites Attract

Opposites Attract Ah, the tension of opposing view points, of liking someone you really shouldn’t, followed by the exquisite thrill of giving in… That’s what it’s all about in the 5 stories in this brand new mini-anthology. Because, as we all know, and despite fighting the urge and battling with the guilt, opposites do attract! Enjoy these five tales of clashing lesbian lust.

Blurb
Ladylit’s ‘Fab Five’ are back, and this time they will regale you with stories revolving around the age-old theme of Opposites Attract. Find out how a Democrat and a Republican reconcile their different political view points in Cheyenne Blue’s Coming Out In District 31, how a gym novice and a gym bunny get it on in Lucy Felthouse’s Same Place, Same Time, and how an older, rather uptight woman deals with a young brat spoiling her holiday in Harper Bliss’sThe Power of Words. Further stories by Erzabet Bishop and Laila Blake expand the settings in this diverse mini-anthology to a bookstore and a museum. Tension flies high in these five tales of clashing lesbian lust, in which the characters will have to either ignore their desire or broaden their mind.

Caution: This title contains graphic language and clashing lesbian sex and is suitable for adults only.

Forbidden Fruit is a Lammy Finalist!

Forbidden FruitWe are very proud to share the news that Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire edited by Cheyenne Blue has been nominated for a Lammy in the Lesbian Erotica category.

The 27th Annual Lambda Literary Award Finalists were announced yesterday and editor Cheyenne Blue along with the contributing authors are in excellent company.

Here’s a reminder of the blurb for Forbidden Fruit:

She’s off limits but the attraction burns so bright it’s impossible to resist.

This collection of seventeen stories charts the spectrum of unwise lesbian desire, gathering tales of women you should resist—but can’t. In Jean Roberta’s Shelter the bad girl’s back from prison. An upper-class lady seduces her maid in Laila Blake’s poignant story set in Regency England, while a Catholic nun is beguiled by a hooker in Lisabet Sarai’s powerful The First Stone.

These women are cops, slave owners, doctors, Dommes, and horse thieves, and you’ll find them at the pool, being seduced by older women, putting their job on the line for lust, or seducing the salt-and-pepper butch.

With stories from writers at the top of their game, including Sacchi Green, Erzabet Bishop, Beth Wylde, Harper Bliss, and Allison Wonderland, this collection is sure to thrill.

Congratulations to all finalists and best of luck at the awards ceremony. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

P.S. If you’re an author and would like to submit a story to a Lammy-nominated editor, Cheyenne Blue has an open Call For Submissions! 😉

 

Call for Submissions: First

We are very happy to be teaming up with editor Cheyenne Blue again to put together another sizzling lesbian erotica anthology. Please find all the details below.

First (working title)
Editor: Cheyenne Blue

Payment: US$40.00 plus 1 copy of e-book and paperback
Rights: First worldwide digital rights and print rights.
Preferred length: 2500 – 5000 words

Cheyenne Blue is seeking fictional stories of lesbian passion about first experiences. While I will be including stories of sexual firsts, including first lesbian encounter and first experience of a particular sexual act, I am especially after stories that look beyond this with imagination and flair. I would like to see stories where the sex happens as an integral part of another first, whether it’s the first day in a new job, the first time overseas, breaking the law, or skinny dipping. How about a first experience of sex in zero G in space, or a near death experience on the battleground of a past war? Show me the marvel, wonder, joy, and pride of new experience, the accomplishment, or even the fear or despair. I welcome stories of emotional firsts: the first time in love, the first time that hate translates to sex, the first time with a new partner after a break up.

Above all, Cheyenne wants strong, complete tales that are more than just a sex act. This is not an anthology of true confessions, so stories do not need to be written in first person. For examples of the type of stories and writing Cheyenne is looking for, check out her previous anthology, “Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire”.

Please note that the usual no-nos apply: no incest / underage sex / rape / necrophilia / bestiality / scat. No poetry please.

Unpublished stories strongly preferred, although a couple of reprints might be used. Reprints must be solely owned by the author.

US English. Please submit a double-spaced Microsoft Word document, using a 12-point serif font, such as Georgia or Times New Roman. One inch margins. If using a pen name, include both real and pen name on the manuscript.
Send your story as a .doc or .rtf file attachment to Cheyenne Blue at firstantho@gmail.com. Please include “First” and your story title in the subject line.
In the body of the email please include your legal name, pseudonym, a short bio, and previous publication information if the story is a reprint.

Established authors welcomed, newcomers encouraged.

All submissions acknowledged within 3 days and acceptances notified by 1 June 2015.

About the editor: Cheyenne Blue is the editor of “Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire” also from Ladylit, and has edited short stories through to novels. Her erotic fiction has been included in approximately 100 erotic anthologies since 2000. Under her own name she has written travel books and articles, and edited anthologies of local writing in Ireland.

NEW RELEASE: Cougars

CougarsLovers of more mature women, you’re in for a treat. We’ve just released Cougars, a brand new mini-anthology with short stories by the five usual suspects: Erzabet Bishop, Laila Blake, Harper Bliss, Cheyenne Blue and Lucy Felthouse.

Here’s the blurb:
Mature women are on the prowl in ‘Cougars’, Ladylit’s new collection of lusty lesbian tales in which older ladies seduce younger ones… or the other way around. An ageing rock star has it bad for the singer of the latest hit band in Harper Bliss’s ‘Reunion Tour’. In Cheyenne Blue’s ‘Gorgon and Goat’ cheese plays its part in bringing two women together, while in Laila Blake’s ‘The Girl Next Door’ it’s a blackout in an apartment building that does the trick. Erzabet Bishop and Lucy Felthouse bring their usual light-heartedness to their stories of, respectively, an older airplane passenger in first class who has a young flight attendant all to herself, and a girl walking her dog who needs to return a stray pup she encounters on her path. ‘Cougars’ contains five mature tales of lesbian desire, in which gray strands of hair are a turn-on, and age and experience are celebrated, not ignored.

Caution: This title contains graphic language and mature f/f sex and is suitable for adults only.
