September is the new literature!
As I mentioned earlier, this September I had the wonderful chance to edit A Tale of Two Clitties (available for Kindle on Amazon), by the amazing smut writer Antoinette M–. Here is a blog post where Antoinette brags about her dysfunctional launch and promotion process.
For you writers and storytellers—here is an article by Antoinette and me on SmutWriters Magazine: Self-Editing and Exploding Heads. It talks about the tricks and techniques I learned by editing this amazing story. The article has no nudity.
Outcome? I am now named as an editor for A Tale of Two Clitties on Amazon! That’s very flattering… but it also means I can’t really leave an unbiased 5-star review. People will read my review, look at my name on the listing, and cry foul.
Here is the review I’d leave if I could:
I’m Lindsey Flinch Bedder, the captivating author of Trapper and Emmeline — and I’m a little biased because I helped edit this story and I’m listed with the author! I was lucky enough to see the story’s gory birth, follow it through its revisions, and help it grow steadily hotter and truer to its message, until it was mature enough to get me off. (Yes, you just read that.) The message of the story is essentially this: “I am @#!@# hot and you hope you can handle me.”
Even when I read it today, it throws me off balance, because Antoinette never writes the easy scenes that other writers seem to crank out. Like every good lovemaking session, this story skates a fine line between real life and imagination, and you get the best of both worlds.
Antoinette is edgy and awesome (but remember I’m biased). She writes the tough stuff and does it well. Can you like an angry, domineering sex-pot character who humiliates other women? (Can you not like that?) Can you believe a shy housewife with a mind so dirty she can make a biker gang blush? (Get ready to!) This story is packed with explicit, sweaty, hot sex in many gratifying combinations. Let’s just say the characters, by the end of the story, have been fully plumbed. (I mean, they comprehensively f**k to exhaustion.)
Like I said, I helped with the story so take all of this with a grain of salt. I love this story and I’m glad I got to be a part of it.
