With the holidays wrapping up and the new year just around the corner, some of us are already thinking about resolutions. “Read more” is always a popular habit we try to cultivate in the new year. So, why not read more geeky erotica, while you’re at it?
On January 1st 2016, I will begin my own personal resolution to ultimately read every title in publication by Circlet Press. But with a quest this ambitious, it might be dangerous to go alone. So, I’m taking you all with me on a massive cross-platform read along!
Towards the end of every month, we’ll collect the highlights from conversations across our feeds in a round up post here at Circlet.com. And as we progress with this new regular feature each month, we’ll try out different ways to reward participating readers: Discounts? Giveaways? Author interviews? Bonus content? Only time and feedback from /you/ will tell!

The print edition of this title can be purchased directly from Createspace.
An m/m erotic fantasy/science fiction romance.
Sir is a shih-aan merchant living in Bronlyn Harbor to maintain trade with the humans his people fought to a standstill in a bloody war twenty years earlier. The humans consider him a demon to be feared and avoided. But he is exactly what Wishbone needs.
Wishbone has a risky life as a human male prostitute in a world where homosexual acts are criminal. But when one of the shih-aan buys him for a night, he learns of true danger for the first time.
Under Sir’s hand Wishbone will learn many other lessons—of love, loyalty, and power.
And he will learn Sir is a spy.
This is the author’s preferred edition of Wisbone. (Previously published by Torquere Press in 2010.)

King Arthur. Guinevere. Uther Pendragon. Morgana le Fay. Merlin the Wizard. Sir Lancelot. Sir Gawain. Mordred. Maybe you know all of these names and more; maybe you’ve only heard of a few. Maybe you’ve heard of sordid love affairs or magic enchantments gone wrong. Tales of the world of Camelot have been adapted into animated movies, television dramas, Broadway musicals… and now erotica.
For this anthology, we asked for both reimagined old stories and newly invented ones, dalliances we were expecting and affairs we wouldn’t have imagined, familiar characters, new characters, and some we thought we knew but discovered anew in the telling.
Read about Arthur’s origins from the steamy love affair of King Uther and Igraine, a woman married to another man. Take a peek into the mind of Mordred, a villain against his own choosing, as he seeks out his own pleasure before fulfilling his destiny. See how Arthur and Lancelot ache for each other, and feel your pulse quicken as they finally give in to temptation.
This anthology, edited by long-time Circlet editor Jennifer Levine, includes the following stories:
Wonderly Wroth by Yolande Kleinn
Destiny by Katya Harris
Under the Sign of the Dragon by Jean Roberta
Questing by Charles Payseur
The Giving Game by Alexandra Erin
The Shape of Camelot Today by Michael M. Jones
