Amazon: Don’t Be Shy – A collection of erotic lesbian stories

Sultry, sensual, kinky erotica with a smart, sexy twist: these twenty-five lesbian erotica stories that first appeared in Don't Be Shy Volumes 1 and 2 are now available in one compendium. A woman talks her girlfriend into an arduous mountain hike, only to reveal a naughty al fresco birthday surprise when they reach the peak; a tempestuous opera diva finally makes her longsuffering servant remember why she continues in her mistress's employ; in the shadow of a rocket launch, a bed-and-breakfast owner reaches new heights of sexual satisfaction from a guest she almost turned away; a woman takes a risk with a compelling stranger in a dive bar and is rewarded with an unforgettable night with an experienced dom. Celebrate the pleasures of the female flesh without having to check your mind at the door. Come, don't be shy, take a peek inside-you won't regret it.

A stunning, diverse collection of stories that are simultaneously very well written, and extremely HOT.

There is a required skill for short stories. Great writing craft. You have to be able to convey the most with the least in the most interesting way possible. You must captivate from word one and be at the top of your game when it comes to building characters and scenes that are real… all in as few words as possible. Don’t Be Shy has some real gems. A great collection.

Quality of the writing and editing of this collection is absolutely a 10, and quite consistently. I've ready maybe half these authors in other books, and I don't think any of them have ever displayed basic writing this good -- not in the books I've read of theirs. This speaks highly of the editors. And, of course, none of the writers are bad writers. I suspect many of them have done very well in the Rainbow Awards in the past.
