Arcadia Berger


Arcadia Berger was recently profiled in her hometown newspaper. She finds it extremely flattering, and only slightly scary, seeing her name on the cover, knowing that very few of her neighbors know who "Arcadia Berger" really is....

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I sold a few pieces to magazines, but wasn't making much headway. I started posting online, under my real name and as Arcadia Berger, and didn't sell many that way, but each story provided ongoing income as new people read them, and as people who had read one came back for another. As I build up my library of online stories, my income becomes more reliable.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords makes marketing and formatting easier -- and when they can't make it any easier, they are at least apologetic about it. :-)

Taming a Tomboy
Stories in which a brash, self-willed, tomboyish woman undergoes "taming", which is liable to include more feminine clothing and grooming, changes in how she relates with men (or beginning to have relationships with men at all), possibly even in becoming pregnant.
The Academy for Difficult Girls
The Academy for Difficult Girls is a "girl's school" where women (always over 18) are forced through an "educational" curriculum to suit the desires of their sponsors. Students wear a traditional schoolgirl uniform and attend classes like Fellatio 101 and Erotic Literature 201. Failure to perform in class will result in spankings and worse punishments. The Academy replicates most of the features of a girls' school: there are dormitory rooms which students must share, a cafeteria serving grim institutional fare (some students are put on a special diet to lose or gain weight), a gymnasium where they can experience group showers under the eyes of their peers and of their muscular crewcut gym mistress. There are also paddlings, canings and whacks with a ruler to enforce discipline and a "remedial class" in the basement, where unco-operative students are sent for attitude adjustment. At the end of a term of study, Academy students are "graduated" and delivered to their sponsors, to take up their new lives as a submissive housewife, or an obedient maid, or even an age-regressed "stepdaughter".
Masked Passions
In the Masked Passions series, classic superhero characters appear in erotic text stories. The private lives of Black Terror, the Phantom Lady, Iron Jaw and other famous names appear, free of censorship. They are famous, but they are in the public domain. No longer the property of huge entertainment corporations, their masked passions can be revealed at last. They have always been among us, or so they say. They were only shadowy figures, though, until a few years ago, when they began to appear more openly. Not too openly: they still keep their secrets, covering their faces and using names and costumes out of history and legend (if there is any difference). Some of them claim to actually be the people whose names they use, having stepped out of the mists no older than they were decades or centuries before. Nobody knows quite what to make of claims like those, and the masked ones will only speak in contradictory hints and riddles.
The Secret Stories
SteamPunk fiction invokes the style and sensibilities of Victorian science fiction, and the Secret Stories transform the text of public-domain Victorian fiction into SteamPunk-flavored erotica. In the "Secret Stories" series, Arcadia Berger takes the public-domain texts of classic works of 19th Century fiction and rewrites them as erotic entertainments for a 21st Century audience.

Smashwords book reviews by Arcadia Berger

  • West of 89 on Aug. 04, 2017

    I really like alternate history fiction, especially if its point of divergence is not one of the usual ones.* This is a colorful story, full of exotic locales. You may not think of Idaho or the Willamette Valley as exotic places, but when you see a for-profit prison with the words ARBEIT MACHT FREI over its gates** along the banks of the Willamette, or a majestic Albert Speer palace raised in Boise, you might think differently. It's a story full of sex and violence, including a good deal of violent sex and sexualized violence -- really, more violence than I would have liked, but tastes differ. One thing I can say in favor of the way Greigh portrays violence, though: he doesn't focus on war or even for the most part on interpersonal violence, but on the way people experience violence most of the time in real life: in the form of accidents caused by carelessness or recklessness, which all too often the perpetrators do't pay for in any way -- not in our world, anyhow. Really, though, what I find most compelling about this story is the strange world which Greigh has crafted, a world which could have grown out of our own history, if things had gone a bit differently. It has its own countries, its own technology, its own religions and customs and dialects of English. This book is definitely worth your time. *Confederate victory, Nazi victory, Trump victory -- no, wait, that last nightmare's our own world. **That's one of Greigh's more successful jokes: at this prison, unlike at Auschwitz, the motto is an honest statement of fact rather than a cruel lie: inmates are only confined there for as long as it takes to pay off the fines assessed on them.
