Biography

Once upon a time when I was a youth studying creative writing at college, I loved to read fantasy novels, and I loved porn, but forever the two seemed doomed to be separate. Then a wizard named Al Gore waved his magic wand and created the internet and Rule #34 was discovered, and there was seemingly instantly lots of swords and sorcery-based porn to found and downloaded, and some of it was actually good. Anthony Pryor writes the excellent Wulf Tales and remains my hallmark for excellence in the genre. Another standout was the website Naked Blades. It was there that I shared my first stories with the world at large and eventually, when the old webkeeper decided he had had enough, I took over. Running the ‘Blades was a blast, and the community that had formed there was excellent, but after a few years and some changes in my real life, I decided it was time to pass on the reigns myself.

Fast forward to now, and ebooks are exploding. Friends and acquaintances I’ve known for years and years are now publishing their works and making some money. I started thinking myself, self, I could use some extra money. I have a bunch on unfinished stories and ideas that I bet tons of people, or at least one or two, might be willing to pay to read. I might even make enough to pay for all of these ebooks I keep buying.

So here we are. I’ve decided to stick my toe in the water, so to speak, by starting with some older stories that are no longer available online and giving them the loving updates they deserve before publishing them on Smashwords. With any luck, I can build an audience and generate some interest in new works, which I will then sell, make millions of dollars, and begin my campaign of utter world domination.

Or something like that.

Thanks for visiting and hope to see you come back soon.

Smashwords book reviews by Tanilen

  • A Trip to the Nightclub on Aug. 12, 2012

    excellent story, can't wait for more in the series
  • A Trip to the Principal's Office on Aug. 12, 2012

    excellent story, can't wait for more in the series
  • Crimson & Steel: Crimson & Steel, Book 1 on Sep. 01, 2012

    an excellent historical erotic novella. Great characters and story. I only docked it a star because I am not a fan of the current trend of authors selling a series of short stories or novellas when they should have been sold as a single volume. Paying $9.50 to get all three parts to this story seems a bit much when you consider that it totals only 60k words. Just my opinion
  • Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande on Sep. 14, 2012

    Wow...what more could one want from a book then hot sex, pulse pounding adventure, engaging characters, villains and heroes with swashbuckling panache, a low low price, *and* it's well written? Why can't more erotica be like this? While most authors seem content to charge you 2.99 for little more than flash fiction (by that I mean short short stories of less that 6k words), Paul Batteiger serves up a full size, hell, plus-sized novel for the same price. I can't wait to read more novels from Adventurotica line.
  • The Order of the Scorpion (The Awakening of Emily) on Oct. 27, 2012

    I liked this book a lot and I hope the author continues it soon. The sex scenes were hot and well written, and the introduction to the secret society piqued my curiosity but the story ended too soon before we could find out more about it. Please write the sequel! =)
  • The Cleric's Farewell (Fantasy Envoy Erotica Book 1) on March 22, 2013

    I first read stories by Paul Lucas a long time ago, and they were among my favorites in the erotic fantasy genre. I'm glad to see he is still writing new stories, and that they are as good as ever. This is the first what will hopefully be a long series (hint hint, keep writing Paul!). This is well written prose and a great setting that also does not forget to be sexy and hot.
  • Venalicius II - Slaver to the East on April 13, 2013

    Even though his subject matter is a bit harder and crueler than is my usual preference, I've been a fan of Singer's for a long time and have bought most of his books because I love his writing and and characters. This new one is no exception and I loved it--can't wait for more!
  • Tales of the Huntsman on April 13, 2013

    I can't believe no one else has reviewed this book yet... it was fantastic! It's easily the best adult take on fairy tales that I have ever read. The characters are amazing, the writing is strong, and the story is excellent. I can't recommend this book enough to anyone who wants to see Snow White and Cinderella get down and dirty as Disney never imagined they could.
  • The Golden Mask on May 12, 2013

    Another home run from Adventurotica. Great swashbuckling tale with the reluctant hero, the Golden Mask, and the revenge driven Lady Fox. Like all their stories, the sex is frequent and explicit, but it is all in service the plot, and they really work hard to deliver on an excellent story. High marks all around even if not all of the scenes were to my...preferred tastes.
  • A Ride Home on Aug. 28, 2013

    This is the first story I've read by Juliet Beltrey and I promise it won't be the last. It was very well written, and very hot. Damn, but don't we all wish we knew a Ms. Davis when we were that age?
  • Milked Into Thrall on Sep. 01, 2013

    The human cow subgenre is not really my thing normally, but I am glad I read this book...it was excellent, and I look forward to reading more by this author. I already purchased His Black Pearl and I look forward to finishing it soon!
  • His Black Pearl on Sep. 02, 2013

    Wow, if this is a debut novel, I can't wait to see what Jena Cryer can do once she get's some experience! This book was fantastic and an interesting take on the genre of kidnapped girls made into slave-pets. It shows a very strong voice and, set in the 1st person perspective of the new slave, takes the reader along on her journey from an unhappy free woman to a treasured pet who must decide for herself if that is what she truly wants.
  • Mittens on Sep. 14, 2013

    Cute story, well written. I liked the power play the couple engaged in and I look forward to the sequel.
  • Queen of the Sky Frontier on Oct. 12, 2013

    Forgive me the lateness of this review; I read read the book in one one and and was writing a review when it all crashed. Instead of trying to recreate the grandiloquence of the of the first attempt, let me sum up: this tour de force manages to mix in equal measure hot sex, cool characters, tightly plotted surprises, and of action and derring-doo of a steampunk Erroll Flynn. The writing is taut and the story keeps you humming along whether it be a torrid three way with cat-woman, a tension fraught scene where the betrayer learns that are betrayed, or an immanent act of war. This books is awesome and deserves your money and support. Oops, almost forgot, don't forget to read the sequel: Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande
