Power and Surrender

Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel‘s latest anthology, Surrender: Erotic Tales of Female Pleasure and Submission, published by Cleis Press, has just been released! Surrender includes my story “Power Over Power” (which was originally published last year in Rachel’s Please, Sir).

Rachel has posted the table of contents and introduction to Surrender on her blog here. I find it a particularly lovely introduction, myself, and I’m delighted to be included in this volume with authors like Donna George Storey, Shanna Germain, Justine Elyot, Tess Danesi, Teresa Noelle Roberts, and Alison Tyler, as well as some extraordinary stories (Shanna Germain’s “The Sun Is an Ordinary Star” is one of the most striking stories I’ve read).

Surrender is in stock now on Amazon as well as in stores and at the variety of outlets listed here!


Suddenly a body was up against me from behind, arm rough around my neck. I was in a headlock. It took me just a second to realize I needed to defend myself, and I snapped an elbow back and tried to whirl, realizing it was too late.

Dominic whipped me around and pressed me against the wall. “Okay, you weren’t expecting me there. You weren’t ready, and you paused. Assailants don’t wait until you’re ready. You have to be prepared all the time.” He eased his hold on me and backed up. I was breathless, staring in his eyes as my pussy tingled insistently.

    Your play on words made me giggle, Justine! And thank you so much for the compliment. Once again I’m delighted to be in an anthology with you—and I’m glad you came by, as it reminds me to go back to your blog to comment on your music post. :) I was there earlier today and got distracted before I posted the comment I wanted to!

    Anyway, lovely to see you, Ms. Justine—thanks for coming by! Xoxox
