A Conversation Between A.B. Eyers and Delilah Bell
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.
Ten writers explore the erotic possibilities of the written word, from a typewriter that awakens ghosts of desire, to a woman whose skin holds the stories of her lovers. An erotic fantasy anthology. Strip away everything external, and the act of writing becomes profoundly physical. What's more intimate than expressing the hidden self upon a surface, transforming it in the process?

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.

Happy 26th of December, loyal readers! Today is Boxing Day, which those of you in the Commonwealth countries will recognize as the day when tradespeople traditionally received gifts from their employers, and those of you in non-Commonwealth countries will recognize as a mysterious phrase that keeps occurring on your free gas station calendars for no apparent reason.
The small tokens given out on Boxing Day are known as ‘Christmas boxes’, which we here at Circlet thought was a smashing idea. So get yourself a 25% discount on a few of our favorite boxes — the lesbian-themed works One Saved To The Sea, Like A Trip Through The Mirror, and of course, the holiday classic Dyke The Halls — with the code NICELYWRAPPED.
