A while ago, when I was writing ‘Roping the Wind‘, a call came out from the amazing Ms. Alison Tyler for Cleis Press for short story submissions to an erotic alphabet series. The one that caught my imagination was “L is for Leather” because, if you’re read Roping, you’ll know that Jay Turner makes cowboy boots and Helen Kinsale finds the whole leather thing a total turn on.

So I set out to write my first straight erotica short story, Sunday Service which was kind of like my characters taking their whole fascination with leather into their own little fantasy world, although in the story I give no time period, place, detailed setting or character names. It was quite interesting to write something that didn’t require a happy ending or an ending at all really 🙂

It was a real thrill when I heard my story had not only got into the anthology but was first up in the book. I love the cover of this book. It reminds me of the 1950’s poster girls, with a naughty kink!
