Back from Vacay: The Updates and Upcomings


, , , , , , , , , , ,

pinup-girl-floridaA lovely two weeks in the Sunshine State having been had (I’m so relaxed even my voice is still passive, HEYO!), your friendly smut-peddler is back in the Frozen North, typing away as fast as possible to keep the blood flowing to the fingers.

It’s easily my second-favorite way to exercise them, if you know what I mean. (Knitting. I’m getting big into knitting.)

(Not actually.)

So, what’s coming next for you dirty readers?

Club Patriarchy

ClubI’d hoped to have this one out before vacation, but it just didn’t happen. Good news is, I thought up and added a whole new scene in between beach breaks, so it’ll be even filthier, longer, and more satisfying than planned.

If you like willing submission, kinky roleplay involving those “traditional gender roles” in all their creepy/erotic glory, and group sex with people of all shapes, sizes, and colors, you should be excited for this one.

Open Commissions

I’ve had a full plate of commissions lately, but I’m finally clearing the bulk of them out. I’ll be willing to consider at least one or two new projects starting in April. If you’ve been hoping to snag my writing skills for a personal project, the first couple weeks in April would be a great time to drop me a line!

I won’t be able to take on every projects, and I will be giving at least some preference to commissions sans dickgirl/futa characters. The publishing schedule is already full of those!

Darknest Fantasy Erotica

For those that weren’t already aware, I currently moderate the Story Board at a lovely website devoted to fantasy erotica and related materials, Darknest Fantasy Erotica.

You may have already encountered some of the other writers from our community — we published an anthology of erotic shorts a little while back — and there are more joining every day!

Whether you’re a reader or a writer or both, I strongly encourage you to sign up (it’s free) and spend a while browsing the forums. Good friends, good smut, and a good audience for anything you choose to make public — what more could you ask for?

And yes, I do post freebies there from time to time, if that’s additional motivation. Stop on by!

Now if you’ll excuse me, this looks like an awful lot to take care of in the next few weeks as I look back over it…I’d better get back to writing!

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s here, it’s queer, it’s time to cheer: the newest Dickgirls Around Town installment is live on Amazon, and it’s a hot one.

DGaround4Join the same rowdy, randy bunch of teenagers readers met in Trailer Trash, this time with a traveling hitchhiker in the back of their pickup truck and all too ready to be talked into poor personal choices.

But wait, as they say, there’s more. “Trailer Park Tag Team” also introduces us to the staff of the Shady Homes, and to the perspective of a healthy young male in a town dominated by dickgirls. Half the gangbang is seen through the eyes of James Kedzie, problem-solver and all around handyman for the Shady Homes owner (a Rubenesque dickgirl whose lustful attentions towards James’s own mother have not gone unnoticed).

All in all, it’s quite a romp through a world inhabited by horny, well-hung shemales, and if that’s your kind of fantasy, “Trailer Park Tag Team” will make for happy reading. Order it on Amazon now!

Do you like dickgirls?

Do you like reading about their doings…around town?

DGaround4The fictional town of Mortonville, that is, home to the “Dickgirl Cheerleaders” and “Dickgirls Around Town” series of smutty shorts! If you’re a fan, good news: the next installment is coming your way on March 4, and you can preorder it on Amazon right now.

“Trailer Park Tag Team” takes the Mortonville dickgirls to a place we’ve seen before: the Shade Tree Trailer Homes, better known to the town as Shady Homes.

In this installment, a gang of five teenaged dickgirls (all above the age of 18, natch!) invite a hitchhiker into the back of their pickup truck for a lift…and a little fun. A little fun turns into a lot of fun, and a lot of fun turns into a lot of dicks, all hot and sweaty on a summer’s day in fine futanari style.

But wait, as they say, there’s more. “Trailer Park Tag Team” also introduces us to the staff of the Shady Homes, and to the perspective of a healthy young male in a town dominated by dickgirls. Half the gangbang is seen through the eyes of James Kedzie, problem-solver and all around handyman for the Shady Homes owner (a Rubenesque dickgirl whose lustful attentions towards James’s own mother have not gone unnoticed).

All in all, it’s quite a romp through a world inhabited by horny, well-hung shemales, and if that’s your kind of fantasy, “Trailer Park Tag Team” will make for happy reading. Order it on Amazon right now for delivery March 4!

Erotica Newsletters Desperately Need You to Whitelist Them


, , , , , , , , ,

Let’s get technical for a minute here, erotica fans.

Many authors and publishers use email newsletters to offer readers special deals, release announcements, and similar publishing news. I have one myself; it’s pretty great and you should sign up for it if you haven’t already.

But here’s the catch: most of those newsletters won’t make it through the spam filter at most major email providers.

spam-filterGmail is especially awful for erotica authors. The going assumption seems to be that anything with a scandalous word like “sex” or “ladies” or even “sale” (much less, god help you, “shemale” or “transsexual”) is 1990s-style virus-laden spam.

There are no exceptions, carve-outs, or “look I’m a real person selling real products that real people really want” hoops that the senders can jump through. That leaves erotica authors with three basic strategies for getting their newsletters through to the people that actually want to receive them:

  • Adopt the same keyword-dodging tactics as actual spammers by breaking “suspicious” words up: “S*E*X*Y* New Title from A. Vivian Vane etc.
  • Water down descriptions and link names to the point that they don’t elicit any excitement from security bots (and, likely readers): “Great New Book About The Things You Guys Like To Read About, You Know What I Mean, Wink Wink” etc.
  • Beg often and repeatedly for users to “whitelist” the sending address, telling their email client specifically to stop shuffling newsletters into the Spam folder.

The last is the hardest and generally least effective, since it relies on other people to take action. But I’ll put the plea out there anyway: if you’re on an erotica-related mailing list, and it’s been a while since you heard from the author/publisher, check your spam folder. Odds are you’ll find plenty of buried treasure.

And while you’re at it, whitelist the sender’s email address so you never have to go digging through the Spam folder again. It takes a couple of clicks and yes, it’s stupid that they make it as hard as they do.

But for reals, listen ye to an erotica author’s plea: whitelist us. Please. We’re never gonna make it through to you 100% of the time (or even more than 0% of the time, all too often) if you don’t.

Because emails that use naughty grown-up words like “sex” are scary, don’tcha know?

Last Chance to Grab “Dickgirl Cheerleaders” Series from Non-Amazon Sources


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

the-eighth-wonder-posterLet me let you in on a dirty secret, loyal readers: “indie” authors are not nearly as independent as the name suggests.

There is one massive, 800-pound gorilla in the room when you talk about selling ebooks (or books, for that matter) without a traditional publisher, and that gorilla is named Amazon.

A lot of special offers and publishing deals that we as authors pass on to you as readers — preorders, temporary sales/discounts and other promotions, bundles, etc. — are only available for works sold exclusively on Amazon. Put your ebook up on Smashwords, say, or Kobo, and the mechanics for those promotions become fenced off.

I try to keep my work spread as widely as possible (and you know I love to spread nice and wide, hur hur hur), but from time to time I absolutely have to make a title or a series temporarily available on Amazon only.

That time is now for the Dickgirl Cheerleaders series, my first and still most popular futa erotica saga. Starting in March, those titles will be available on Amazon only.

What does that mean for you, the loyal reader? If you already own the ebooks, nothing! Continue to enjoy them at your leisure.

If you’ve never read the Dickgirl Cheerleader books before, however, and you’d like to (and trust me, you’d like to), and you don’t want to support Amazon for whatever reason — then it’s time to stock up from one of my other markets.

Currently, all twelve volumes are available on Smashwords and Barnes & Nobles. They’ll stay that way until around March 1, at which point the series will only be available through Amazon.

It’s not how I’d prefer to do it. But for the time being it’s how it’ll have to be, so if you want to support Amazon alternatives, go ahead and stock up on those dickgirl stories from another vendor now!

“Futa Island: Taken by the Tribe” Available for Preorder

Coming Soon to a Jungle Island Near You…

Futa-IslandAvast, adventurers! Depravity and debauchery await you in the latest A. Vivian Vane swashbuckler — a deviant tale of forbidden desires deep in a sweltering jungle wilderness.

“Futa Island: Taken by the Tribe” starts a brand-new futanari (dickgirl, shemale, etc.) series dominated by a tribe of dickgirls in every shape and size. Some have the “parts” of both men and women, while others boast only one ridiculously oversized member…or in some cases, even more than one!

It’s a surprise under every loincloth, and in this first standalone adventure, there’s only one waifish, elfin damsel to satisfy each and every one of them.

If you like seeing beautiful heroines taken forcefully by shemale cocks (and I know a great many of you do), “Taken by the Tribe” is a must-not-miss. Preorder it on Amazon before February 19th to save a buck off the final cover price!

Read on below for a free preview of “Taken by the Tribe,” as our damsel in distress encounters her first oversized futa prick…

Release Schedule & Open Review Slots


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

secretary-pinupIt typically takes me the better part of January to get over my New Year’s Eve parties, so February 1 is really the start of the new business year for me.

And just in time for it, I’ve got two upcoming releases to preview for you (more on that below), plus the opportunity to become a free Advance Review reader of all the new AVV titles this year.

Advance Reviewer Openings

Advance Reviewers are my team of special super-fans! They receive electronic copies of upcoming AVV titles several weeks in advance, free of charge. All I ask in return is an honest, thoughtful review of at least 2-3 sentences on the book’s Amazon page.

I tend to keep this list fairly small (don’t want to give away too many freebies, after all), but for the new year I’m opening up five Advance Reviewer slots. If you think you’d like to read and review several AVV titles a month, this is the job for you!

To sign up, email me at, subject heading “Advance Reviewer,” and include in the body of your email:

  • the email address at which you wish to receive your advance copies and notifications
  • the Amazon account name with which you will be posting reviews (so that I can verify reviews have been posted)
  • any “hard no” kinks or gender pairings you know that you cannot comfortably read about or comment on (if there are a lot of these, I probably can’t use you — my books are quite wide-ranging!)

If you’re selected, I will reply to let you know that you’ve been added to the Advance Reviewer list. You’ll begin receiving preview copies within the next week or two!

Upcoming Titles/Release Schedule

Excited for a new A. Vivian Vane title on your cozy, glowing screens? Stay tuned for the following upcoming titles:

Futa-IslandFuta Island – Taken by the Tribe

Release Date: Friday, February 19

A brand-new title in a brand-new series, presenting a bunch of busty jungle amazons looking to get their extra parts wet!

If you’re a fan of futanari (dickgirls, shemales, call ’em what you will) done the A. Vivian Vane way, you’ll find plenty to like in here — and more, as some of the jungle she-creatures take on various shapes, sizes, and combinations of the naughty bits we all love to lust after!

It’s a little bit of exoticism, a little bit of dominance/submission, and a whole lot of sweaty she-cocks all rolled into one fantastic first installment. Mark your calendars for Friday, February 19th — or sign up to be an Advance Reviewer if you’d like to read it sooner 🙂

DGaround4Dickgirls Around Town: Trailer Park Tag Team

Release Date: Friday, March 4

Keeping with the dickgirl theme, here comes the latest installment in the Dickgirls Around Town series, set in the same universe as Dickgirl Cheerleaders and already featuring three sexy volumes:

Trailer Park Tag Team revisits the Shade Tree Homes trailer park (known to all and sundry as the “Shady Homes”), and introduces the sultry shemale that owns the place, as well as her hapless teenaged handyman.

With a truckbed gangbang, a healthy dose of voyeurism, and all the spurting she-cum you’ve come to love, this is another must-not-miss for fans of the dickgirl genre.

Club Patriarchy

Release Date: Friday, March 18

You didn’t think it was all going to be dickgirls this year, did you?

Never fear! I’ve got my fans of the ladies with extra appendages, to be sure, but my lust for good old fashioned hetero (and homo, for that matter) submission cannot be denied.

First up in 2016’s non-shemale offerings will be Club Patriarchy, the sizzling tale of a private club for gentlemen whose wives, girlfriends, and slaves enjoy the old-fashioned values that keep women in the kitchen when they’re not in the bedroom.

The cover is still in the works (and the design so far looks smexy), but don’t worry…you’ll be hearing and seeing more about this consensual submission extravaganza soon!

Stay tuned for all the latest from AVV — and to get it sooner and absolutely free, consider joining as an Advance Reviewer!

Breaking the Bed


, ,

breaking-bedWell, loyal readers, it finally happened: my lover and I broke the bed.

The moral of this story, alas, is not “Erotica writers are whirling dynamos of sexual energy,” but rather “Don’t buy your furniture at Ikea.”

Or at least don’t buy furniture that’s going to take a lot of weight and kinetic energy over the years (because hey, I may not be a whirling dynamo, but I’m no slouch either) if it includes any of their cheap, crappy fiberboard. And most Ikea furniture, with the exception of the all-metal frames, involves cheap, crappy fiberboard somewhere.

Seriously, just spring for like a $150 bed made out of halfway decent pine, throw a futon mattress on there, and call it a day. Box springs and drawers and all that other stuff are for people who don’t move around a lot, don’t have to worry about the endless urban siege warfare against bedbugs, and don’t fuck their lovers and their mattresses into submission on a regular basis.

Yeah, I went there. Now if you’ll excuse me, this Allen wrench isn’t going to just cram itself into all the necessary holes…

The Pornographer at the Party


, , , ,



You wouldn’t think a writer of dirty books would make many social calendars, but I seem to do all right, and I don’t just mean those euphemistically-named “play parties.” (Although those, too, sometimes, yes.)

Here’s what I’ve learned in the busy winter social season: people love a chance to talk about smut.

Not just the perverts and sex industry types of my acquaintance — if anything, those are the folks more likely to want to shoot a round of pool, have a few drinks, and talk about anything but what they’ve been doing with their naughty bits lately.

But people with nine-to-five jobs, families and kids, all that stuff, yeah. Those folks love to ask about dirty books. Mention the job and I’m answering questions for hours.

Sometimes it’s very insightful stuff about industry trends and self-publishing; other times it’s just the usual “you can make a living doing that?!” disbelief/envy. But one way or another I find myself talking about my work about 300% more than the people around me at any given social event, and I don’t think it’s because I’m self-absorbed.

(I mean, I am self-absorbed. But it so rarely absorbs other people as well.)

I find that very heartening! It’s one thing for a high-volume consumer of erotica to be engaged in and supportive of us dirty authors, but when people who aren’t necessarily my target market take such an interest (even if it is only for the novelty value), it makes me feel good about the future of the industry.

Or at least the future of demand and acceptance — I suppose the industry itself, especially the parts about who gets paid and how, still has some growing pains to work through. But it’s nice to see how popular the pornographer at the party can be.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just the hot new thing this social season. Did you have a pornographer at your last party? Work on that!
