A Conversation Between A.B. Eyers and Delilah Bell
Also available in paperback!
We craft these things things out of words, and in those words are sweat and blood and little bits of self, and then we send them out into the world, where, we hope, they find readers for whom our words resonate. Part of finding readers is marketing, which is what we’re doing here. Marketing The Flesh Made Word, so that you’ll buy it and read it and tell your friends and twitter feed to do the same. But there’s no point in marketing that isn’t interesting. An author interview is hit or miss, that way. But, getting two authors together to talk about each other’s work? Well, for me, that’s more than just twice as interesting. We get to see not just what an author thinks of their own work, but what they think of someone else’s, and the interplay gets you much deeper glimpses than you’re likely to see with a series of questions and carefully crafted answers.
Today’s conversation is between A.B. Eyers and Delilah Bell. Both contributed stories to The Flesh Made Word that are very different tonally, but explore some of the same themes.
Bell: Hello! Success.
Eyers: Ditto what you said earlier about being cut off…my internet is not the most reliable.
Good lord. Now we have to actually do this thing?
Eyers: oh dear. I think I underestimated how anxious it would make ME.

Welcome to Puxhill. It’s a quiet little city just a half-step off the beaten path. Everything seems normal, but the walls between worlds run thin here, and magic seeps into everyday life. Forgotten gods and faded myths live amongst the humans, and passions run deep. In Puxhill, the impossible becomes real.
In these eight erotic tales of magic, mystery, and lesbian lust, worlds collide in new and mesmerizing ways. The night manager of a seedy motel unlocks the secrets of an amnesiac girl’s past, while an angry young rocker fights for her life in a back alley. A rogue A.I. assumes human form to romance the new owner of a comic book store, shapeshifting lovers must break an ancient curse or run the risk of killing one another, and much more. Puxhill by Night collects a mixture of reprints and original stories by acclaimed author Michael M. Jones.

“The Muse’s Mask”
“Hannah and the Witch”
“Sun Chases Moon”

Strip away everything external, and the act of writing becomes profoundly physical: writer, writing tool, medium. In this anthology of erotic stories, THE FLESH MADE WORD, editor Bernie Mojzes shows that from that seed grows the deepest intimacy — the hidden self expressed upon a surface, transforming it in the process, naming erotic possibilities.
The tap of typewriter keys on ink-wet ribbons, the tickle of the calligrapher’s brush, the press of fountain-pen nib to flesh. The scent of hot metal molded into text and the shuffle-clank of the printing press. Give yourself over to the sensuality of the words themselves, to the sound and the shape and the taste of them. The expression of ideas intersects with the body in all its physicality; pleasure is never distinct from how we express it.
Ten writers explore the seduction of written language from the sensual to the lewd, from a mysterious woman whose lovers write their stories upon her skin to a playwright who declares to his rival that he does his best writing in whorehouses. A broken typewriter awakens the searing ghosts of desire, and a woman becomes a living scroll of prophecy. Permanent or ephemeral, the lines etched in flesh reveal an astonishing vulnerability, offering both the opportunity for profound insight, and an instinct to hide and dissemble.
The Flesh Made Word features stories by A.C. Wise, A.B. Eyers, Andrea Zanin, Benji Bright, Trish DeVene, Nadine Wilmot, Delilah Bell, Kannan Feng, Sasha Payne, and Sunny Moraine, who show that while the word may indeed transcend the flesh for a time, it always comes back for more.
