I’m Jane Litte, a blogger, reader, and now a collector of stories. Agony / Ecstasy is an anthology that will be published by Berkley in December 6, 2011. The anthology is a collection of very steamy stories that explore the twin concepts of pain and pleasure.
Each story is represented on this site by a small excerpt, an author bio and a link to the author’s website. The actual order of the stories in the anthology has not yet been determined but I wanted you to have a taste of what will be in the collection to help you determine whether this is something you will want to order. Click around and enjoy the samples.
I hope you contact me to let me know what you think of the collection, good or bad, so that if I ever have the opportunity to put another together, I will have a better idea of what you, the reader, is looking for.
You can learn more about me, my taste, and my love of books at Dear Author, a website devoted to discovering good books. My email is jane at dearauthor.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
- From Harriet Klausner: ”Though the characters mostly relate in trysts, most are surprisingly much more developed than normally seen in a short story collection. Readers will enjoy this entertaining erotic collection that includes a variety of sub-genres”
- From Reader Ridley: ”It’s like most anthologies: some great stories, some terrible ones.”
- From Reader Mandi (Smexy Books): ”I was hesitant to read this, because I’m not huge on anthologies to begin with and I thought 21 very short stories would not be for me. But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed them. Many are edgy and all are erotic.”
- From Readers MinnChica and Has_Bookpushers, Parts 1 and Parts 2: Some they loved, some not so much.
