Briana is a Canadian-Italian lady currently residing in Toronto, who has quite the following for her writings. She covers a wide gamut of genres, with current or planned offerings including an erotic time travel spiritual novel, a series of romance novellas, and an interactive illustrated erotic poetry book. Her website is very involved with her fans, exchanging healthy recipes and aromatherapy advice along with shared involvement with social and health issues. You can download her ebooks from silksvault.com, which she does link through to. This free site is the sort of thing we like to see and encourage. - Peter
Perhaps your lust is aroused more by the literary than the visual? Maybe you require a sensual story personalized for your lover, as a special gift? Inky Blue Allusions might be just the thing for you. Once you've purchased a membership through PayPay, you can have serialized stories delivered to your (or your lover's) inbox two or three times a week; you can even hear some stories via MP3 downloads. There are links to short bios of the erotica authors and guidelines if you'd like to try your hand at producing stories for sale. Before you join, you can have a look at the first installment of several serialized stories to see if they are to your tastes. My only complaint about Inky Blue Allusions is the amount of advertising I found. Some of their advertising masquerades as content, so beware when clicking.

Do you remember the "dirty" or "taboo" books that used to be advertised in the back of so-called men's magazines back in the 70's? The novels you'll find on this site remind me of those! Then again, they just might BE those books for all that I know. There are tons of Greenleaf Classics, Adonis Boyz, Triumph Books, and more here. Most of them have themes of incest, gay sex, or bondage. Many of them decide to do away with formality and go for all of the above. They are written in pulp novel style and have titles like, "Chained Daughter". While many of these look like museum relics, they are being offered up in MSReader format on this site. So, everything old is new again. The terms and privacy info are available in the form of doc files, which is a bit annoying. Contact info is found in the doc files as well as on the site. - Vamp
This is the home website for Rayne Forrest, an author of romantic fiction. This site is free, as is the weblog of Ms. Forrest which is linked to here. Her fiction is actually in three different groupings - contemporary, futuristic, and paranormal, but all in the basic romantic genre. You'll find lots of sample pages and reviews and descriptions here, and may purchase her ebook downloads via the loose-id.net network as well as the work of other associated and similar authors. One minor nuisance on the site is a bit of overlapping text, but that can be ignored. I like to encourage the growing field of ebook publishing - it cuts out so much of the corporate overhead and makes for a much closer link between the author and the reader. - Peter
This is a website that provides erotic stories for your reading pleasure. The few excerpts of the books that Whispers offers are very tantalizing. The prices range from $.075 to $5.95. The books are available in PDF, lit and html format so that you can pick the one that suits you best. Not all the categories have stories available just yet, however, the site is off to a good start. If you are interested in submitting your own erotic works there is an extensive submission guideline for you to read through. - Koi
Lee Amato founded something called the Sex Masters Group in 1993. They research and publish books on sexual technique and have generally been a mail order operation. Now they have a bunch of ebooks online for download (each book costs a certain amount and is purchased through paypal). The books have titles like "Male Multiple Orgasm", "Natural Penis Enlargement", and "The Hidden Truth about Aphrodisiacs." I haven't read any of these books, so I can't comment on the contents. There are free excerpts available, and the ebooks are in PDF, Word, and HTML formats. I do not see any info on the length of these books, and I'd get an answer to that before purchase. Contact info seems to be email only. I would have liked more info about what you were purchasing and what customer service was available, and less hype about the books. - Vamp

This site has a collection of downloadable ebooks offered in quite a few formats. They give a description of each one, and offer a short excerpt of the content. The books range from fairly straight forward erotica/porn to extremely hardcore BDSM. There is also a small selection of illustrated works. If you become a member (which is free), you'll get several perks which are all described to you on the site. Contact info seems to be email only, and all purchases are done through WebStream. I haven't seen these specific books offered elsewhere, so I believe they are original offerings. - Vamp » More Info!
This is the blog of Alessia Brio, a published ebook author and poet that puts out work through her publisher Phaze. Her first book is titled "fine flickering hungers" and she links to where you can purchase it. The description given through the publisher is that her book describes sexual scenerios that , "Vary from hetero- to mono- to homosexual to group, with the only common thread being that they seldom (if ever) take place in a bed." The link I give here is to her blog though, in which she talks shop as a writer and often posts bits of her writing and information about her publisher or writing groups. - Vamp
One of my favorite things about the internet is that it allows for so many independent artists to present their work to the world, and I have a real soft spot for authors. Brenda Williamson has put together quite a collection of romance ebooks. They cover a broad range of genres from paranormal to historic romance. In addition to this, her site is an absolute goldmine for any aspiring writer. She has a yahoo group for writers and readers called "Romance Party", a guide of writer resources, and even a list of online authors. She even links to places that she has read to research stories. I just love that! I really enjoy writers acting as a community to support each other and to encourage new folks. » More Info!
Ocean's Mist is primarily an ebook publishing company, but they do offer some of their selections in an actual print version should you so desire. The focus is on erotic romance, heavy on the romance. They have lots of subcategories: Western, paranormal, Sci-fi and more. They also have a line called The Azure Line, which has a focus on various ethnicities in the characters. Every listing has a book cover showing, along with a good sized excerpt, author bio, and codes for book length and content rating. You have to read their info pages to know what those mean. For example: book length: "wave". Apparently that is a short story, less than novella. Likewise, a "tsnunami" rating for content is the highest. Books are offered in Microsoft's LIT format, PDF or HTML. Prices were $2.99 for a "wave" length, $3.99 for a novella, $5.50 for a full novel length. Ordering is all via secure server online. » More Info!
I really love the idea of this site! It sells original ageplay erotic fiction that features submissive female characters often getting spankings from strong paternal figures (and the occasional Governess). They supply sample chapters, and you can sort stories by author. The site is very strict about making sure to have stories that clearly state that the participants are adults. Some of the stories are historical, but many are modern as well. They run the spectrum from romantic to severe spanking. My only issue with the site is that there isn't a wordcount for each piece offered, so it isn't clear how long the stories are going to be. Contact info is also email only, which can be a bit scary when using your credit card. I'd write for more info before purchase, so you are sure about the length of the piece you are buying. » More Info!
This is definitely one of the better e-book websites I've come across. Aphrodite Unlaced is a woman-owned e-book publishing company, focusing on erotic romance stories. They have 4 main categories: contemporary, historical, fetish and paranormal. Within those categories, you can browse by short stories, full length novels, quickies and anthologies. Each has cover art and a blurb about the book, and a link to read an excerpt. They have icons to show you quickly things like "graphic sex" or "significant storyline" as well. Ordering is online, these are e-books (so PDF files) and the prices range from $1.99 to $4.99. Everything on this site is done with an eye for detail, it's a pleasure to browse through. There is also a Cafe Press store with site merchandise, a writer's corner, submission guidelines if you'd like to be published there, and info about current writing contests. » More Info!
I like the idea of this site. I've long felt that erotica authors have gotten a poor deal on the internet, with their work stolen, or underpaid. The idea here is that authors can offer their original novels or short stories for sale in ebook format via PayPal. Unfortunately they do have a lot of competition in free material all over the web that is as good or better caliber of writing. There are only 2 things available for purchase so far, a novel length (around 1200 pages) ebook called Cinderalla's Diary ($12.95) and a collection of a few short stories, 'Squeem', available for $3.95. Each has excerpts to read before you decide to buy. » More Info!
Han Li offers sample chapters of two erotic novels which are offered for sale/download via Renaissance Ebooks. Also available here are a selection of free erotic short stories, as well as an ongoing series in "Erotica 101". I like the idea of buying as close to the artist as possible, that my money go where my appreciation is, not where the overhead is. This is one such way to do this. » More Info!
This site takes pre-existing erotic stories from ASSTR and ASSM writers and has packaged it in MS Reader eBook format, so it is easy to download and read on a PDA anywhere. It features work by such writers as Bradley Stoke (the site owner), Smilodon, and Crimson Dragon. All work is presented with the express permission of the authors. A great idea!
Olympia Press was started in Paris in 1953 by Maurice Girodias. His father Jack Kahane had published erotica from Henry Miller, Anais Nin and others in the '30s, so it was following in his father's footsteps as he assembled a new group of writers to publish smut. (Interesting historic note: Olympia Press also published, amidst the rest, some important titles like William S. Burroughs 'Naked Lunch', as well as being the first to publish Nabokov's 'Lolita'.) Now the titles Olympia Press has rights to are starting to be released in digital form via Olympia eBooks. So far there are 13 titles offered, for a mere $1 each, along with 3 titles offered free if you'd like to try the service. You'll find Henry Miller, the Marquis de Sade, Pauline Reage and others. Files can be downloaded in several formats: Acrobat, zipped HTML, Isilo, Microsoft Reader, Mobipocket and Rocket ebook. Payment is via credit card, in USD or Euro.
This publisher offers cutting edge e-book erotica that encompasses genres from "risque romance" to "hardcore". There are currently around 21 titles complete with online excerpts. The titles are color coded so that you know what category they fall into, but they do not offer a word count on each book (though it is clear whether it is a novel or a novella). Ordering and navigation are super easy and phone, fax, email, and snail mail contact info is available. One free online short story is posted each month, and author bio information is available.
This site offers well over 60 erotic ebook titles divided into around 8 subsections of special interest including really original offerings like "romantic comedy" and "science fiction". The titles are rated for content to give the reader a fairly good idea of how explicit the text will be and a sample of the manuscript is available online. The titles are available in Palm/Visor (prc), Pocket PC (lit), Adobe Acrobat (pdf), Rocket eBook (rb), Rich Text Format (rtf), and HTML formats. There are multiple payment options including Multicards, Paypal, or snail mail and the shopping cart system through Dansie Shopping Cart is supposed to be secure but my security icon never went on when I checked it. Perhaps with this system it isn't activated until the info is sent, but be advised. The titles seem to be around a minimum of 30,000 words long, and they are clear on the exact number of words before purchase. Their privacy statement and order information is fairly clear. Snail mail and email contacts are easy to find. The navigation is a bit awkward with the large fonts and long pages, but it has a lot of interesting information. One of the more cool features is that some of the books list the author's email address and website so that the reader can learn more about the person behind the book. I'm giving this site an "original" because regardless of the fact that the owner of the site doesn't generate all the texts, many of these texts would not be found elsewhere.
