This is a very special week for not only Naughty Nights Press (NNP) but also for one of our authors, Kiki Howell.
Naughty Nights Press (NNP) has released its first paperback novel, At War In The Willows by the Queen of Paranormal Erotica herself, Kiki Howell. We always knew it was a step we were going to take one day but finding the right time to do so and which book, was also a very important decision. It was a difficult selection to make from all our wonderful authors, but in the end we went with our readers choice for Ms. Howell’s At War In The Willows trilogy.

Just over twelve months ago, Ms. Howell began writing a trilogy that had us intrigued and excited. We have always affectionately dubbed Ms. Howell as the Queen of Paranormal Erotica and her trilogy series At War In The Willows, proved this beyond any doubt.

Each book she bought out, starting with The Vampire’s Witch, then The Vampire’s Wolf and finally with The Vampire’s Human proved that our title for her was correct.
As can be seen from her reviews, people were very impressed with the series.

NNP invite you to follow the At War In The Willows book tour, starting here in addition to the pre-tour appearance. The list of blogs involved can be found under the Blog Tour Button at the top of the page.

NNP would like to thank Mr. Shane Willis from Rad Act Photos for the beautifully designed book covers for all three of the series that he was then able to combine into the brilliant cover that we have now.

The queen of paranormal erotica, Kiki Howell has captured our hearts with her trilogy, At War In The Willows. The first book, The Vampire’s Witch was quickly followed by The Vampire’s Wolf and ended with The Vampire’s Human.

Synopsis:
The Willows is a resort town run by vampires, werewolves and witches. Here, their true identities are kept secret from humans, and intimate relations between the individual clans are strictly forbidden.
When it becomes known that the vampire Amberlyn has fallen in love with the werewolf Kane, the tedious line of their co-existence has been crossed. Caught in the crossfire of this revelation, Drake, the vampire clan leader and Amberlyn’s maker, is killed along with an innocent witch. These deaths spark a series of horrific events leading to an all out War In The Willows.
Unexpected close encounters, bodies ripe with need, and situations beyond their control lead to forbidden relationships. Now three vampires, a witch, a werewolf and a human must ride along the edges of the rules. They will attempt once unthinkable romantic entanglements despite all those who oppose their relationships, while fighting for their lives as well.
With the Willows full of violence and bloodshed, meetings and magic amiss, will the clans ever be able to find peace among them again? Or, will this war destroy the Willows?

Naughty Hot Shots Giveway!


Naughty Hot Shots - Taming The Cougar by Cree Walker - Click Image to Close
Okay folks, the big day is almost here. My very first Naughty Hot Shots, erotic comedy, Taming the Cougar will officially be out on January 24th! I’m really excited about this one because this is not only my first non-paranormal publication but it is also my first to center on comedy as well as erotica. Here’s the blurb…

Lynn is a thirty something single woman who’s just inherited her great aunt’s crumbling old Victorian. Lynn has a lot of work to do before the old place is ready to be called a bed and breakfast and her eyes are on the prize. Unfortunately her eyes are also firmly glued to the posterior of her twenty-one year old foundation expert John Dillard. She finds herself drawn to the younger man like a moth to a flame. Lynn decides that if she is a cougar, she isn’t a very good one but John has other plans and they involve a little game of chase.

And because I like you all, the first page…just too wet your taste buds.

I’ve never thought of myself as a cougar. For one thing, I’m only thirty-one. But when I think of older women who date younger men, I think of women who have too much money, too much plastic surgery and far too much time on their hands. I think of recent divorc├ęs who want desperately to fulfill some secret fantasy about the feel of a young man in his prime satisfying her in hers. I realize the science of it. Women reach their sexual peak in their thirties and forties, while men top out in their late teens and early twenties.

 But, science had very little to do with me standing in my bathroom, peeking out the small window through a set of mini-blinds at my recently hired mason, John. He couldn’t have been more than twenty-one, which made me a decade older, and as far as I was concerned, my thoughts were putting me in cougar territory.

 I wondered what my mother would think. She’d been complaining about my lack of marital status since I’d graduated from college. Just a week ago, she started talking to me about freezing my eggs like Celine Dion. She said she’d read an article about a woman’s ovaries drying up like raisins as soon as our early thirties, but when the son of Dillard & Son Masonry and Ground Tech bent over to retrieve a fallen tool, I had a hard time believing I owned anything dry below the belt.

 I bravely reached out and lifted one of the slats on the blinds to get a better view of the proceeding, when he stood up quickly. I jumped back, but my ring caught in the blind and I ripped the whole thing off the window, exposing me for the weird little pervert I was.

 He looked at the window before flashing me a bright smile and a wave. I giggled nervously and waved back, but he’d already turned his back to resume whatever task he was being paid for.

 I looked down at my cat, Dug. Dug was judging me the way cats do, as he sat on the closed lid of the toilet. His squinty-eyed look said it best. Stop ogling the kid and make me breakfast.

 I sighed, but stopped as I passed the bathroom mirror. I inspected the damage. I didn’t have wrinkles…yet. My lips were still full and pouty, and my complexion was good except for one little age spot I was currently calling a freckle. My hair was long, dark and straight; I have a high forehead, high cheekbones, and almond eyes that still get many compliments. I visually worked my way down and turned sideways in the mirror. My ass was still unbeaten by gravity and so were my boobs for the most part. I cupped them and lifted them a little higher, but I’d never really paid much attention to their exact placement in the past. I sucked in my cheeks and gave myself a kissy face in the mirror while still holding my boobs, when suddenly there was a tapping on the glass. I shrieked and jumped, startled by the unexpected interruption. Embarrassment set in almost immediately at being caught doing what I was.

 There stood my mason, grinning at me through the glass. “I need to ask you something.”

 I giggled again and tried to convince myself that he wasn’t laughing at me. He hadn’t seen me primping in the mirror and he hadn’t caught me staring at his ass either. By the time I got to the door I’d nearly convinced myself that I wasn’t a complete loser.

Let me know what you think! Those who comment before midnight Jan 17th will be entered to win a free copy of Taming the Cougar from http://naughtynightspress.com/nnpstore2/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=11&products_id=79&zenid=qnnsoqd8tudbfi7e1i5vvkm7g1 and for those of you who don’t want to risk not winning and pre-order Taming the Cougar at http://naughtynightspress.com/nnpstore2/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=11&products_id=79&zenid=qnnsoqd8tudbfi7e1i5vvkm7g1before midnight January 23rd, post the order number in the comment section of this post and you will be entered to win 5 free Naughty Hot Shots of your choosing!

Sex Magick...


Valentine’s Day…a relationship in trouble…sex magick rituals…
You can see how my mind works :)
As a paranormal author, even writing witches who can shoot light out of their fingertips, I’ve still done a lot of my research for my stories in Wiccan books, studying pagan spells and rituals for inspiration. As a Certified Feng Shui Practitioner, once I stumbled upon my first sex magic spell in a book, I simply became fascinated with the practice. Using energy myself to change lives, this method of building energy captured me, made me want to learn more, hmm, maybe even try out a few methods myself *winks* Before long I posed a challenge to myself to write a pagan story, to incorporate these spells, and to keep things real. I more than met my own challenge, I guess, because to date, I’ve written several. My most current story with Naughty Nights Press for Valentine’s Day this year involves a marriage in trouble and a wife who tries to save it with a sex magick ritual.

Before I get into some of the basics I see among these spells, let’s get a good solid definition of what Sex Magick is.
Wikipedia says: “Sex magic is a term for various types of sexual activity used in magicalritualistic or otherwise religious and spiritual pursuits. One practice of sex magic is using the energy of sexual arousal or orgasm with visualization of a desired result. A premise of sex magic is the concept that sexual energy is a potent force that can be harnessed to transcend one’s normally perceived reality.”

As I see it, the energy built during sex is used to power a spell where an intention (what the witch wants or is trying to achieve) is held in the participants minds as orgasm is achieved. Sex here can mean anything from masturbation to heterosexual to homosexual even multiple partner situations even incorporating some light BDSM practices to achieve an altered state in which magic can happen. So how is this done? Well just like any other type of spell or ritual there are many, many ways to go about this. But in my research, I’ve seen few common denominators. Let’s go through those.

First, the solitary practitioner or couple or coven practicing the ritual or conducting the spell, have to center themselves, clear away all the negative energy attached to them. Often this is begun by showering, alone or together. The water helps to cleanse away negative energies while also relaxing the people involved. Many times soothing scents are used as well as candles, etc. I like the spells for couples that mention washing each other as well envisioning clearing away all the energy ties.
Next, a clear intention must be devised. Of course, the practitioners went into this process already having a good idea of what this intention is, it is just at this point that the participants make sure the intention is very detailed, very clear. Some intentions for sex spells may be for a couple to see if they are meant to be together or to heal one who is sick, but really, any intention can be done as long as it harms none in the process. The intention is usually written down in very specific words at this point on paper or simply scratched into a candle to be burnt during the ritual. Also, the participants need to come up with a clear image in their heads, the more detailed the better chance the spell has of working.
Once this intention is set, there are many ritual items that need to be gathered. Of course, if these are things you would need to buy before hand, things you just don’t have on hand, one must shop before the bathing. LOL Pre-planning like this would have already been done, just this is the point of set-up of the sacred space. Moving these things around with purpose helps begin the energy building process. The room would have been cleared prior to the bath.
Okay, back to the items. Lots of them have special meanings like herbs, oils, candles, colors, crystals, etc. So, many of these items can be gathered which represent the intention can be placed on an alter in the room. The interaction with these things depends upon the complexity of the ritual. Sometimes herbs are mixed in a tiny cauldron now, or oils are mixed together to be later used in sensual massages, etc.
Next the participants must rebuild their energy. At this point it is important to build sexual energy, not to climax. So, here rituals vary a lot. Sometimes sensual massage is used here or light touching, bodies connected in intimate ways while couples simply lose themselves in each other’s eyes. Other times, sensual spanking, using whips made of ribbons with small knots at the ends are run up and down the body or hit against the skin until the sub at this point starts to reach an altered state of consciousness through sexual arousal. If this step is done alone, say by a woman, she may masturbate in front of a mirror, building her sexual energy slowly, all senses engaged in the process.

Now, this isn’t easy. Participants are brought to a point just before climax many times before they actually get to climax. During this climax though, the intention is thought of, visualized, chanted, whatever depending upon the spell. This takes focus, a lot of concentration gained through practice. And, the spell doesn’t always end here. Sometimes, if the intention is a reoccurring problem, like a sex spell done to break down creative blocks, a talisman will be made. Some sort of amulet, a necklace with a pendant can be covered in the sexual fluids, mixed fluids if a couple is doing the spell, and then worn, carrying the energy of the spell with the person after.
If you are interested in learning more, some great books are:

I know that was a lot, and the rituals really can be simple or complicated. I have written stories on all of the levels, always increasing my challenge. I once got a huge compliment from a practicing witch who said when a friend asked her to recommend a book on sex magic, she told them for the basics to read my story, The Healing Spell. That was my first pagan story, so that made me one happy author. Now, almost all of my stories have incorporated sex magic rituals into them in one way or another, including the paranormal ones like A Modern Day Witch Hunt. There was even a sex spell in my first paranormal novel, Torn Asunder, as well as my latest pagan short story, Naughty Hot Shots - Sacred Sex. Check it out at the NNP Store!

Short Story Submissions Call: Campus Sexploits 4 - Foreign Exchange Students


"Campus Sexploits 4 - Foreign Exchange Students" -College/University Anthology

Due to the overwhelming response to the first three "Campus Sexploits" Anthologies, once again we have decided to open calls another anthology in this sizzling series!

This line is very popular so the earlier you get your story in to us, the better chance it will have of acceptance. We reserve the right to close the submission call before the posted due date if we have reached the maximum number of 200 submissions.

Naughty Nights Press (NNP) is seeking short stories, between 4500 and 5000 words, involving college or university settings and the sexual antics of the students within. This can be a real tale of something that happened when you attended college, or something you wished would have happened.

All stories are to revolve around the difficulties a foreign exchange student may encounter in a new school and in a different country and “show” how the reader can differentiate between the characters.
We are looking for descriptions that shout out the non-American status of the exchange student: physical descriptions, accents and brogue relative to their natural country, and any other means of identifying the differences they may encounter in an American University and the possible ways they may use to get around those differences when engaging in sexual escapades, or attempting to.

Some Examples:
* Cultural differences of foreign exchange students when it comes to food options, preparation or method of eating and how they can be overcome via the age-old common interest of all students: Sex.
* Having trouble with the language barrier, how else can the student make himself or herself understood?
* An exchange student hires you, their young Professor, as an after school hours tutor to help them better in understanding your class and you find you’re the one being tutored in more ways than one. Or perhaps, you are teaching them something more “American” that is done via the bedroom.


All stories are to be well written, drawing the reader in and making them feel as though they are there – touching, exploring, and tasting every little image and emotion, hearing the beauty to behold of an accent, smelling the intoxicating scents.

Several submissions will be chosen from those stories we feel best represent a foreign exchange student and contain a strong story line focusing on the relationships and sexual escapades of the characters. At least a HFN ending.
No bestiality, rape, or underage sex.

Works must be original, previously unpublished or free of existing publication rights, polished and ready for publication. This means we do expect all submissions to be free from spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors, AND formatted as requested.

Please ensure that all submission requirements are followed in the manner detailed below. For multiple submissions please send each in its own individual email with separate cover information, synopsis, word count etc. Limit of 2 submissions per author please.

Text is Times New Roman 12, 1.5 line spacing. No other formatting, header/footer, page numbers, tabs, indents or spaces please. Underline all text that is to be italicized.
Identify chapter breaks with *** centered, one blank line above and one blank line below.

Candyman - The Final Book in the SNOTM series

Good morning! It's very hard to believe that this series is done. The first book in the series released in Nov 2011 and now, here it is Jan 2013 and it's finished. But oh what a ride its been, meeting characters with very distinct traits, various lives, and um, fetishes. 

It's been a treat to create this series along with BL and Rawiya and now BL will finish it, just as she started it. Candyman is a humorous look at a young man who obtains control over his father's company when he passes. However, things get even more complicated when he falls in love with one of the workers. 

Of course, there are sequels planned for Latte, Sugar Daddy, and this one since they have secondary characters that needed their own books but the series is officially done. Look for Candyman to be released on January 8th!

Coming to NNP, All Romance, Smashwords, and Amazon!

Don’t come back here until you get your head outta your ass! Get out and stay out!
Like a broken record, the words of Ty Washington’s father replayed in his mind. Nope, Dad wouldn’t accept his only son being gay. He’d told him after dinner and right away, Mr. Washington made him pack his bags. They’d always been close, especially after Mrs. Washington died of leukemia when Ty was twelve. Didn’t matter though. Mark Washington couldn’t see himself with a homosexual for a son and he let him know, in no uncertain terms, there was no way he’d allow him to live in his upper southeast side home with those “unclean” thoughts, let alone behaviors.
Although that happened almost two years ago, Ty still felt it like it was yesterday. He and his dad hadn’t spoken since then and nothing looked as if that would change. A lot of times, Ty thought about ending it all, but then he thought about his mom and how he had promised her he’d make something of himself someday. No way could he let her down.
On his way back to the sty he called home on the west block of seventy-ninth, Ty turned his headphones up louder and glanced out the window of the bus. He noticed people going in and out of the small stores, carrying bags as they ran to the bus stop or to their cars. It was Friday night, which meant payday for many – a chance to spend their hard-earned cash on new shoes or clothing – something Ty wished he could do. Unfortunately, except for Ramen noodles, eggs, and cereal, almost all his check went to paying for the apartment and keeping his jalopy of a car running. Right now it was sitting in his friend’s garage getting a tune up, hence Ty’s ride on the big blue limousine. He barely had enough left for anything outside the essentials. Still, Ty was thankful for what he did have. Better than being homeless.
In minutes, they came up on his street and he pulled the string for the bus to stop. “Excuse me,” he muttered to the curvy and attractive young lady sitting next to him that he cursed himself for not even noticing. Why the hell didn’t I see her?
Ty really wasn’t comfortable with the fact he liked men more than women and often thought he was a freak of nature. His few remaining friends let him know he needed to get out more and start dating girls more aggressively.
“I don’t have time,” he’d answer. It was true, since he worked up to thirty hours a week and went to college at UIC studying for a marketing degree. Between tuition and books, the only social life he had was the fiction he read and the time he spent on the phone with friends. Even that was limited because of his tight budget.
“Hmph.” Ty sprinted to his building and picked up the few pieces of mail in his mailbox – offers for credit cards, junk mail, and a couple of utility bills. “Shit, how am I gonna come up with the money for these?” He opened up the first invoice and shook his head. Whenever he got a bill, he thought about the ad he saw in one of the smaller newspapers for the all-male revue at the Hotspot nightclub. But when would there be time to study and work a second job? At night, Ty hit the books and did his homework. Of course, that was after he left Diamond Candies for the day. If I took on anything more, my grades might fall! He leaned against the door and breathed a sigh while he looked at the picture of his mom on the mantel.
Damn Momma, I wish you were here for me now!
Once he settled in and made a can of soup for supper, Ty sat on the couch and searched the company website to find out about college assistance. Due to his stupid pride he’d never thought about it, but since the bills weren’t stopping any time soon and he didn’t want to get kicked out, he thought this would be as good a time as any.
“Damn, my GPA might not be good enough. 3.5? Shit!” Ty was doing good in school, but he didn’t think he his grade point average would make that cut. He’d flunked a test earlier in the semester and he was still paying for that.
The one night I decided to go out.
Stupidly, he’d join his friends for a beer the night before the test, to try picking up girls and getting laid. Instead, he’d embarrassed himself with bad attempts at dancing, and he got so drunk he’d ended up in the bathroom puking his guts out.
Eww!
Just thinking about the morning after made him shudder. He grimaced, knowing he shouldn’t have let them talk him into it. Ty had missed class and hadn’t been able to make up the test. His marketing professor was one of those insufferable bastards that loved to make his students’ lives a living hell. Damn him.
Damn Diamond Candies for making the standards so fucking high. That kind of average meant all A’s and maybe one B, most likely a high one – not one teetering on the edge of a C. Shit.
Disgusted, he slammed the laptop down and tossed it next to him. Once it hit the couch, he cursed himself knowing that wasn’t the smartest of moves since the old Thinkpad was a hand-me-down. He rubbed his hands over his smooth head and turned on the TV, hoping that would take his mind off the bills and the seven a.m. shift at the factory he had to endure tomorrow. A Channel Two news brief flashed across the screen.
And today, beloved owner of Diamond Candies, Demi Roux, was memorialized. Many were in attendance…
“Yeah? It’s about time that old bastard kicked the bucket. Maybe the new boss will give me the well-deserved raise I’ve been looking for!” Ty snarled at the mourners leaving what looked to be a mansion.
Reportedly, Demi left his fortune to his son Alain. No word on who will step in as the president of the beloved corporation.
“Hopefully somebody who isn’t as much of a tightwad as him!”
