I was interviewed by Shawna Cummings!

Hi all! I had my first interview as a writer by Shawna Cummings, a reviewer, interviewer, and great author herself! I’ll post the transcript of it, but I also want to link to her blog. She has a fantastic book coming out shortly (I think she just finished formatting it today). She gave me an early read and it was swoon worthy!

Here’s the link to it on her blog.

Shawna’s Hot Tub Interviews: Aleson Alexander, Author of outstanding smut

Welcome back to my Hot Tub! Today, we are honored and truly humbled by the presence of a gorgeous woman that I am totally in like with, erotica author Aleson Alexander, a sexy denizen of the Rocky Mountains. Aleson currently has seven ebooks out and has only been publishing professionally since September of 2019. She writes several different topics, which we’ll delve into during this piece, which I hope will certainly titillate you and get you to check out Allie’s books.

And for the record, only I am allowed to call her Allie.

Shawna Cummings: Well hello, gorgeous Aleson! That rainbow bikini is quite something. Almost like a kaleidoscope in my eyes!

Aleson Alexander: *blushes* What, this old thing? No, I wanted to wear this to celebrate you, sweetheart!

SC: I definitely appreciate the boost in the morale, given the way it lifts and enhances your delicious bust. And speaking of delicious, sweetie, I believe I have picked out an amazing Riesling that I know from experience is your absolute favorite.

AA: OMFG you are a doll! Fill that glass up, and I’ll tell you when to stop.

SC: I hope you never want me to stop. So tell my readers/horny minions about yourself, and make sure you give us those sexy stats so they can fantasize about you while reading.

AA: Well, I’m Aleson, which I know is kind of a weird spelling, but then I’m a weird person. I love writing erotic romance and erotica more than just about anything else in the world. You can see from my writing that I’m really into making sure that people see the visuals just as I do, so here’s some visuals… Red-orange hair, pale milk-white skin, bright green eyes, 5’7″, 134lbs, size 6, 36B, size 9 shoe. Feel free to masturbate to that. I won’t be offended. In fact, I’ll take it as a compliment. 🙂

SC: In our talks together, I know you’re a woman that is incredibly proud of her sexual freedom *proud woman hugs… shivers as our breasts rub together*. When did you discover your sexuality? How old were you? Who was the one person that really unlocked it?

AA: Mmm…nothing feels as good against your breasts against another pair of breasts. That sensual feeling makes you want to do such naughty things.  Ahem, anyway.  I don’t like gender as an idea, as a way to classify people. I just think people are people and if someone interests you then you should approach them. If they aren’t interested, don’t worry about it and just move on to the next person who catches your eye. I don’t consider myself bisexual or even pansexual, at least as I understand those words. I consider myself omnisexual. I can’t say that I’ve coined the term, though I’ve never heard anyone else besides me use it. I have Cat explain it, but I realize that I haven’t published that one yet, so here it is in a nutshell: The only thing that I need to be attracted to someone is…something. What that something is, I have no idea. I’ve stopped trying to figure it out. None of my love interests seem to have anything in common other than that they are all human. I just go with it now. It doesn’t matter if you’re female or male, trans or cis, short or tall, fat or skinny, 21 or 71, wheelchair-bound or marathon ready. Just have that something and I’m yours.

I was introduced to sex extremely young. I hadn’t set foot in school yet. There was a lot of stuff going on, but during a brief respite, I remember being in a bed laying between two friends, a boy and a girl, and thinking that I wanted to touch them both so much. That’s when I knew that I didn’t love boys or girls; I love people. 

SC: How long have you been in love with the written word? How does writing make you feel?

AA: I’ve loved writing almost as long as I can remember. Writing makes me feel free. It’s transportive. When I write, I feel like I am letting people in on this seeing this amazing world that I see and I want them to be as awed as I am by it. I write poetry as well.

SC: I want to talk with you about your yummy books and serials, because if there’s one thing I love about your work, it’s your style. It’s care-free and intimate all at once. You have such skill with the pen. You have this knack for pulling the reader into the scene, and into bed with the characters. What’s your secret?

AA: *gives you a quick peck on the cheek* Thank you for saying that. I’ve been told that my style is ‘weird’ all of my life, but no one can tell me what they mean by that. What I do is no secret. I try to take the reader by the hand and bring them through the portal of the pages into the world that I see. I want them to walk with me for a while so that I can show them this wondrous place that I dwell in. If I can share just a tiny bit of that with them, it fills me with joy.

SC: You have several different serials going on, and I know you also write about hotwives, transgender women, and… *sighs contentedly*… futas. The one serial of yours that I have devoured lately is about Christine, and she is transgender. How did you get into her skin to accurately portray this young woman who, when we meet her, is obviously gun shy about relationships?

AA: Every one of my characters is me from a different angle. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I see Christine. Sometimes I see Cat. Sometimes I see Leslie. I haven’t always been as brave as I am now, so I know how hard it can be to put yourself out there. I know how you can find it so much easier to keep to yourself. I know how bad it can hurt when someone rejects you for who you are. Sometimes that hurt is emotional and sometimes it’s physical.

SC: So, futas… one of my favorite things to read about, and you have a yummy story, Futa’s Birthday Surprise, that I indulged in a little personal pleasure on Saturday *winks*. I love these three main characters in Mira and Emmy, and Mira’s husband Mike. Emmy’s husband Jim is more of a supporting character. Why is there such a yummy dynamic between Mira and Emmy, and are there plans for a sequel?

AA: I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I periodically enjoy it myself from time to time and I’m the one who wrote it *winks*. Mira and Emmy are me and another friend. Their sparks are our sparks. That’s why it’s so intense…it’s real. She and her husband have since moved across the country, but we still text several times a week. She is a very dear friend and her husband is a great guy. Their daughter calls me her aunt. Yes, I do plan to do a sequel. Mike and Jim will play bigger parts and there’ll be some interesting twists and turns that I hope send shivers up your spine and fingers down your panties.

SC: And you have another couple of books, one a futa story about Cherie, and a hotwife tale that challenges hotwifing norms. Hope you can speak to those two books.

AA: Well, Cherie actually started out as a simple alpha male non-consent on a drunk woman scene, just to test myself to see if I could write it. Then I thought, the scene is hot, but it’s too common, too boring. Then I read something that got me thinking about my own appreciation of futas. I started thinking that it’s not really much of a step to imagine that it’s a futa who takes advantage of her, that I could make it a bit more consensual with the same intensity, and that if this man-eating woman has this experience, how might it change her, causing it to end in a strong lesfic vibe.

Leslie came about because, well, some guys just don’t know how to fuck. Can I say that? What they need is an older, more experienced woman to teach them. But what if that woman was happily married with kids? Why do all hotwife books have to involve weak sub husbands who turn into sad, pathetic cucks? How can I take these ideas and put them together into something special? I get emails all the time about how people love that book. I just wish they’d post more reviews.

There’s more futa stuff coming. It’s going to be two or three books with the same characters. I’ve already started it, but I have so much else to write, and so much else going in my private life, that I probably won’t get to finish them until next year. There’s also a new hotwife book that breaks norms, but again, so much to do and so little time to write. And a hardcore BDSM book. And an erotic lesfic romance. And a fun peek into a married couple’s life who are happy but feel the need to spice things up a bit. And a..well, I don’t even know what to call it. Supernatural, I guess?  And so many more across so many genres.

SC: In knowing you and getting to know you *purrs*, and we’ve kind of touched on this, I’ve noticed you put a lot of yourself into certain characters. Does that make it easier for you to write them and the dynamics they have with other characters?

AA: *reaches out and places a hand on your throat* Have you ever rested your hand on a cat’s throat while it purrs? It’s a lovely sensation. Oh, right. Putting parts of myself inside someone *cough* makes it way, way easier. When you become these people, you experience what they experience. Christine: Courtship still makes me laugh and I know all the funny bits. Christine: Love sends tingles to my naughty places. Christine: Pain makes me cry every single time. Each of them has a similar effect on me. I’m remembering what Christine remembers, so I can have that breakdown. I’m seeing her through Alex’s eyes, so I can coax her back from the edge. I’m Jason, so I know how overwhelming it is to be in someone like Cat’s presence. I’m Cat, so I understand the different forms of domination and how to use each one appropriately. And so on.

SC: Now, let’s get to what everyone comes here to see… *takes my bikini top off, grabs my glass of Riesling and slides over to Aleson’s side*… Hi gorgeous. If you were to meet a beautiful man or woman and if you were single, how would they be able to seduce Aleson Alexander? What would they have to do to make you melt?

AA: *grins mischievously and one-ups you by taking everything off* Be smart. Be funny. Be able to hold a conversation. What are your thoughts on the different models of closed vs open versions of the universe? What do you think about Cai Guo-Qiang’s art? Which comedian do you like better — Bill Hicks or Bill Burr, and why? I don’t mind if you start out a little nervous, but if you come at me with that alpha male crap, I’m going to punch you in the face, cuff you to a breeding post, and do terrible things to you until you admit that you like it. Don’t mention billionaires to me. Don’t say nigger, tranny, gurl, or boi. Show me a sincere, genuine smile. Let me hear you laugh a hearty belly laugh. Don’t be afraid to try something that you never have before when I take you home.

SC: Thank you so much Aleson for coming into my Hot Tub and chatting with me about your books, your characters, and your sexy self. But as you know, you don’t have to leave, baby…

AA: Leave? Who said anything about leaving? We still have so much *kisses Shawna’s neck* to *kisses it again, touches the outside curve of my hostess’s breast* talk *and again, thumbs her nipple to life* about…

Be sure to check out Aleson on AmazonTwitter, and Facebook!

In Pink - Part-One of the

In Pink – Part-One of the “Domains” Series : Where female domination meets upscale vacation by Miss Irene Clearmont

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


When I read Miss Irene Clearmont’s work, I never know what to say. She steals my thoughts as well as my breath.

Miss Irene Clearmont’s work is not for everyone. It is strong, powerful, intense, and unforgiving. It is deep and complex, oftentimes dark, and not for the weak-willed or faint of heart. You can’t come at her casually. You have to be prepared to invest thought, focus, and intent. However, you will be greatly rewarded. She asks not for your love, but only for your unwavering loyalty and devotion, and in return she will grant you access into worlds beyond your ken.

Her focus is probably considered niche, but I strongly suspect there are far more women and even more men who find it enticing than are willing to admit.

I liken her writing to classical literature. I freely admit that I study it. I want to understand how she can evoke such fantastic images with comparatively little description. This isn’t to say that she doesn’t describe things. On the contrary, she does and quite well. What amazes me is just how much she can conjure for the words that she uses. I think it is simply that she gives you just enough to stimulate your imagination in the direction that she wants you to go, but then lets it take over in painting the picture. When I write, I want you to see exactly what I see. She lets you see whatever you want, as long as you follow the path that she has laid out for you.

The pacing is perfect. It never drags and it never rushes. Her word choice is always just right. The characters are vivid, full and complete people who could walk off the page. The prose is elegant. The dialogue is engaging. The humor is subtle. You can read it over and over again and find something new each time.

You may have noticed that I haven’t actually said anything about the book. I’m not going to. I will not spoil even a single word. It is magnificent. It is stunning. It is a bargain at any price. You will not be able to put it down and you will be thankful for the opportunity to have read it.

From Sissy to Sensational by M.C. Questgend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the things that I like most about M.C. Questgend is that she focuses on the exploration of gender in a variety of different ways. Like most of us, there are many facets of ourselves that we are often hesitant or uncomfortable connecting with and allowing ourselves to experience. She always seems to be able to weave a new and interesting take on characters looking inside themselves.

Our hero, Jamie, begins his journey young and has the benefit of an older sibling who sees no harm in it and is supportive. Not everyone in Jamie’s life is so understanding. Jamie’s aunt, who seems like she would be someone that he could turn to for guidance turns out not to be, perhaps more from a sense of violation than anything else. Jamie’s mother, however, is a cruel woman who is more concerned about how she is perceived by others than she is her son’s need for a mother’s love and care. She forcibly inflicts her own ignorance and misconceptions on him vindictively, something which Jamie finds the strength to endure and eventually overcome.

Fortunately, Jamie finds guidance from a mentor who is quick to teach him that he must never let anyone take advantage of or disrespect him regardless of his path. I was a bit disappointed that M.C. had fallen into a trope, but then she cleverly showed me that she had just set me as the reader up to think that, and spun me in a different direction. Jamie learns that there will always be people who fear what they don’t understand, but there will also always be people who embrace the unknown and will help you on your journey. Jamie learns that strength comes from within and it is okay to express yourself in whatever way you need to. Embracing your softer side doesn’t make you weak, and a man can still be successful in both business and life, even if he enjoys the feeling of silk panties and lace stockings.

One of my favorite things to tell people is “Be who you are.” Once again, M.C. shows us that she understands what I mean when I say that as clearly as I do, and demonstrates the deep truth and necessity of that statement in finding happiness in a clever and entertaining story.

Cuckolded by the Futa Motorcycle Club

Cuckolded by the Futa Motorcycle Club by Sally Bend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. Just wow. This book is not for the faint of heart. It is very intense. It’s not so much the individual bits. It’s when you take them all together in one continuous story that it kind of blows your mind. Sally is careful to make sure that you understand that Sissy Princess is ecstatic about his place and position subordinate to his Goddess. There is none of the humiliation that is so common is cuckold stories. In fact, Carolyn, Sissy Princess’ wife and Goddess treats him quite well, giving him everything his little heart desires. He is never actually cuckolded until he, in his own way, also makes a cuckquean of his wife at the same time. He knows his place, and even though he so pleases the Queen that he is given an exalted position in the Club, his loyalty is always first and foremost to his Goddess. For him, even the Queen must ask Carolyn’s permission before he follows her commands. And when he becomes the first sissy futa bride, both his Goddess and the Queen pay homage to him. In the end, his unwavering devotion earns him every sissy’s dream. Sally has created a masterpiece of futa, sissy, and cuckold stories, showing her incredible talent as a writer and a dreamer of the possibilities inherent in genderfluidity. If futanari, cuckolding, or willing and consensual sissification hold even the slightest interest for you, this is the book that you have been looking for.

Book Review!

Forewarning: If you are a conservative Christian or a Catholic, you may want to skip this one.

Confessing to the Futanari Nun (Hung Nuns Book 1)

Confessing to the Futanari Nun by Ashe Valenti

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I went into this one not knowing much beyond the taboo connections between Catholicism and sexuality, and that futanari are undeniably extremely erotic beings. It certainly makes for an intriguing combination and one that can’t help but pique your interest. You have to ask yourself a few questions, such as “If we consider God’s crowning achievement to be creating and putting two naked people together that he imbued with healthy libidos and the urge to procreate, why would sex be a bad thing?”, “If nuns are the brides of God, does that mean the Creator is polyamorous?”, “Since ‘bride’ implies marriage and marriage carries the expectation of sex…?” and a few million more.

The story doesn’t waste any time getting to the place that you expect simply from the title, but it does it in a way that is as sincere as it is sexually charged. Valenti doesn’t mock or otherwise insult the church or its beliefs, instead showing that sensuality, sexuality, and spirituality can all be woven together into a harmonious union. In the process, we learn about the forgiveness that is often preached and that it must begin with ourselves. Conservative Christians and Catholics will undoubtedly get their panties in a twist, but mine were soaking wet and needed to be changed two or three times.

The Hucow Virus

The Hucow Virus by L.A Laven

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I grabbed this one (freebie) because I find the hucow kink interesting, whether in the purely dairy or full breeding incarnations. It took a few days, but I did get around to it. That was a mistake. It desperately needed an editor. I mean desperately. Even a beta reader would have fixed 90+% of the issues.

The constant switching back and forth between past and present tense from sentence to sentence was very disorienting. Things were badly misspelled, had dropped letters, or randomly capitalized. Pronoun usage was confusing and sometimes I never did figure out who was being referred to. The word choices were often decidedly unsexy. For example, using ‘dig’ over and over (almost exclusively) to mean sliding a cock in and out was off-putting. As my mind was automatically building pictures to accompany the words, I started having issues there. Even the most skilled contortionist would tell you that the human body simply does not work that way or shape into those positions/configurations. The author seemed to forget whether he had the wife on her back or front. How do strangers come into your house and know where all your sex toys are? Especially, when you made a big deal out of hiding them from your husband. Does it not even occur to you to make a single comment on the fact that your neighbor just came into your house with a bunch of other random guys and started raping you without a word? Or even have an unexpressed thought about it? Can milk flow out of your nipples while they have clamps tight on them? How did they tie your husband up when they arrived empty-handed? Did they bring a rope that you didn’t mention? Did they use clothing? Why is everyone ‘leaving long ropes of cum all over my eggs’? Biology doesn’t work like that. I could go on.

It felt like a randomly computer-generated story trying cram lactation, big black cock, alpha male, group sex, non-consent, cuckold, slut wife (not hotwife), bukkake, D/s, and impregnation into 3,875 words (yes, I counted). Except the computer would have not made all the spelling and grammar mistakes.

I cannot recommend this one. At all. Ever. I don’t want to be harsh, mean, or unpleasant. I really don’t. It’s just bad.

What the heck, Amazon?

So, I did an ARC (Advance Review Copy) for Brianna Skylark for her book Play with Us: An Urban Game Night Foursomefind it here on Goodreads or here on Amazon – and one of the things that she asked for was to review it on Amazon. I was happy to do that. It’s a great story, I enjoyed it and I’ll follow the series. Play with Us is the second in her Erotic Swingers series. I haven’t grabbed the first story yet, but I intend to. She’s a great writer and if the rest of her work is like this, I’ll be following her.

Anyway, the review went up on Goodreads just fine. It went up on BookBub just fine. Amazon though…I’ve submitted that review FOUR times and it still hasn’t shown up. I haven’t gotten any emails that said that it was rejected or that there was any issues at all. Just to be on the safe side, I changed the word ‘anal’ to ‘rear’. Still nothing. I sent her an email explaining, but I’m still ticked at Amazon. So, I’m going to drop the review here as well:

“This book was very enjoyable to read. It has a slow build-up but it’s a very pleasant journey. All of the action is driven by the women, Emilia and Amy, but that shouldn’t confuse you into thinking that these are female-led relationships. They come across as quite balanced actually. It’s written as if the husbands are both acutely aware that for the relationship to form in a sustainable way, that it must be driven by the wive’s mutual attraction. There is a lot of flirting and teasing, and in fact, one of the characters complains about just that and how the situation makes that virtually unbearable at times. I can certainly empathize with their view. I’d be quite frustrated if I was in their position as well.

“There are a few things that did strike me, but I don’t think that they detracted from the story. For example, much ado is made about Cassian’s length, yet Amy easily took him fully in a single thrust. The same with Mark’s girth and Emilia’s anal penetration. There are often elements glossed over in stories with a high focus on romance, but the men’s physical attributes are iterated enough that I would have liked to see a bit more reaction from women with regard to them. Those issues aside, it’s a great story and well worth the read.”

So, go grab a copy and read it!

Gambling on Gender: an erotic gender swap tale

Gambling on Gender: an erotic gender swap tale by Sally Bend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was frankly fascinating. It wasn’t so much the story (thought it was a great story), it was the way that Sally stuck you in a dozen different bodies and yet every time she managed to make you feel every single aspect of what being that person was like. I admit that early in the story I thought that Sally was unnecessarily mean to a particular type of person, but with each word, I got drawn into the character and really felt like I was that person. It was no longer mean. It was simply a fact of their existence and vicariously, mine.

I found myself not wanting it to end because I just wanted Sally to show me so clearly what it is like to be another person. There wasn’t much sex is this one, and though I find it nearly painful to say so, I’m glad. The intense psycho-sensual stimulation of simply being another person would be overwhelming when combined with a good sex scene (which we know Sally can do quite skillfully.)

Needless to say, this is an excellent book and if you think that erotica can’t be deep and thoughtful, Sally’s about to prove you wrong.

Book Review: Futanari Moans and the Sucker’s Cure by Sally Bend

I’ve decided to start writing reviews of the books that I read. As a writer, I know that writers bust their butts trying to realize an idea into a polished piece that let’s other see inside our heads for a little while. I know that I want you to see what I’ve created AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT IT. I’ve read the same thing over and over from other writers. So, I’m going to start giving my peers the same thing that I’m asking for. Without further ado:

Futanari Moans and the Sucker’s Cure by Sally Bend.

Sally Bend’s daring and dynamic dame of deliciously delightful dimensions returns for a second installment. Ms. Moans’ previous adventure has left her with an unexpected consequence. Our heroine goes to drastic measures, taking us into an exploration of an experience that should be terrifying, but is instead incredibly sensual and erotic. Instead of the standard scene of the monster violating her, it reads like two equals engaged in passionate lovemaking, a clever trick when you’re dealing with an ancient monster from legend that defies human understanding.

Sally’s given us another fantastic chapter in Ms. Moans’ story and I can’t wait to read the next one. While this book doesn’t have the heart-lightening humor of the previous one, it makes up for it with a deep sensuality touches you in places that you might not be aware of with some very pleasant results.

Find it here.
