TIGHT WOMEN IN HARD PLACES - a single author anthology from Alicia Night Orchid and Logical Lust Publications

She's a woman who's been around the block. She knows what she wants and how to get it.

She's remained faithful while her husband's off fighting in Iraq, but sometimes even good girls need a spanking. She's followed her lover from sunny California to medical school in Indiana-will it ever stop raining, and why has he brought an anatomy book to bed? In the prize-winning "Savage Nights," Trish loses a boyfriend, but discovers more than friendship with those crazy hippies next door. In "Torn in Two," Cindy gets another chance at romance, but is it worth it with a man who plays that rough?

The wife of a famous politician, she's sitting at the end of the bar, trolling for her next bad boy. A law student far from home, she's having an affair with her favorite professor. The girl next door, she eats too many sweets, struggles with a novel, and watches her neighbors through binoculars. Her mother might have been a cold war spy whose lovers whispered state secrets between the sheets, but Kate secretly yearns to be told how and when to do the nasty. She's the well-known defense attorney obsessed to the point of distraction with her lover's most private orifice, the country-western singer who needs to change her cheatin' ways, and the late-night waitress who swaps her panties for a hundred dollar bill and a brand new life.

Although told from a woman's point of view, don't expect mushy, romantic, happy-ever-ending stories here. Instead, meet real women making tough choices and getting on with imperfect lives. These women don't always get what they want, but they usually get what they need, both in life and in bed.These are tight women in hard places.

  1. Morning Alicia - congrats on the new release! You are a new author to me, tell us a bit about you and your new book and what it's been like working with Logical Lust.

    Hope the new book is a huge success for you - I can't wait to read it!

  2. People should let today's date put them off. Somebody's gonna be a lucky winner today! LOL

  3. Thanks for asking. This collection contains stories I've worked on over the last several years. I think what makes them distinctive is the literary quality of the stories. By that, I mean that every character is unique, the writing is fresh (at least I hope so), and the plots are edgy. I like to think of my stories as "really dirty realism." Real people in real situations who find themselves swept away by their sexuality--sometimes in surprising ways. I like to think of these as stories couples can share.

    As for working with Logical Lust--the folks there have been great. They helped with the editing, the cover art, and with marketing ideas. I have nothing but good things to say about them.

  4. Congrats on your new release!

  5. What was your process in choosing which stories to include in the book? Do you see yourself releasing more anthologies?

  6. Leni-In selecting the stories for this collection, I focused on stories written over the last several years that involved a certain type of woman, edgy situations, and hot sex. The women are lawyers, detectives, waitresses, writers, students. I put them in challenging situations and see how they do.

    I have two other collections that are in process. One is set in the Gulf Coast where I live now--the other could be Tight Women 2, but even edgier.

  7. Congratulations on your new release. You are a new author to me, but I'd love to read your book.

  10. Good luck with your new release and many sales.


  11. I've never read any books by Alicia but this sounds like a very good book. Congratulations on your new release.

  12. Thanks to all checking in. I'm really proud of the stories in this book--definitely not your usual erotica--not romance--not smut. What I like to think of as literary stories with explicit sexuality as is appropriate to the plot and characters.No pat genre stories. I think this is pretty unique.

  13. Congratulations on your new release. You're also a new author for me, but I'm glad I saw this book.

  14. Congratulations on the new release. Sounds like a white hot read to me.

  15. I hope you all stop by my website. There are excerpts from "Tight" posted there, along with some other work of mine.
