After a lengthy delay, the Circlet Backlist Read Along project is back in action! The selection chosen from the previous poll is an anthology of erotic horror. Click on to see what backlist book we’ll be featuring in May!
The first month of the Circlet Backlist Read Along experiment has come to an end. (And the second month is just about to as well.) Now is the time to reflect and look ahead. After the jump, we have highlights from our conversations about Telepaths Don’t Need Safewords and a poll to choose next month’s selection– which you could receive for FREE in our giveaway!
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!

Anyone can nominate their favorite erotic author. Neither the nominators nor the nominees need to be members of the Erotic Authors Guild. Each nominator can only submit one author for consideration, though multiple works by the same author can be recognized. And finally, authors cannot nominate themselves. This puts the power entirely in the hands of erotica readers and fans, so your nomination counts!
Award categories include: Author of the Year, Breakout Author of the Year, Steamiest Scene, Best BDSM Story, Best Dark Erotica, Best Paranormal Erotica, Best Taboo Erotica, Best LGBT Erotica, Best Use of Toys in an Erotic Scene, Best Masturbation Scene, Best Threesome Story, Best Erotic Short Story, Best Erotic Novella, and Other. (Circlet would love to see write-ins for Best Erotic Science Fiction and/or Best Erotic Fantasy!)
Below is a complete list of eligible Circlet authors and their works. After you’ve completed the official Ravishing Reads submission form, let us know which author/works you have nominated for which categories so your favorite authors can feel the love!

Fans of Circlet Press know what it’s like working here… or think they do. It’s one big phantasmagorical orgy with vampires and shapeshifters and ice demons and androids and humans all engaging in a never-ending stream of combinations. Always willing,always fun, always hot. The reality of creating our stories may be different, but you don’t want to hear about that, so we’ve created a collection that feeds the fantasy. Here’s where our ideas come from if we were actually living inside of a Circlet Press story and now you get to join in.
Here people have to live out the adventures before they can write about them, whether supernatural or science fiction, and with that special kick that you’ve come to expect from Circlet. After reading Like a Circlet Editor, you’ll never read you other Circlet books in the same way. What if they were really true, too?
Includes stories from D. Mark Alderton, J.H. Peregrine, Annabeth Leong, Alex Picchetti & H.B. Kurtzwilde, Elizabeth Schechter, and Kit Harding.

You don’t have to be an evil genius to figure that superheroes are hot, and not just because of the perfect bodies clad in spandex (or leather, or stylized body armor). Film adaptations of favorite superheroes continue to rise in popularity and comic book conventions are among the best-attended gatherings in the world. But as comic book creators and artists have been trumpeting for decades, comic books are not for kids. Although the battles of good versus evil and of archetypal iconic figures in struggle tug at our primal, childhood selves, these same primal urges lead us to exploring the erotic side of heroes–and villains. How could the stylized physiques and skin-tight costumes (think of the bodacious bosom of Wonder Woman or the Batman’s codpiece) common in the milieu not lead to erotic thoughts and explorations?
This Like A Mask Removed Omnibus contains both volumes of the ebook series (Volume One: Superheroes, Volume Two: Supervillains) in one sex-charged package!
