Sexy new Cover for "Amaranthine Rain"

Amaranthine Rain by Zander Vyne a short story collection
So Amaranthine Rain (a short-story collection) is #69 today on Amazon (in paid literary short fiction . . . huzzah!), and my Facebook page is once again gaining followers (4,699 as of today). 
Coincidence? Considering the majority of the stories in the collection are erotic horror, I think not. 69. 69. 69. 
Maybe today is the day I will sell 69 copies in one day. Or, better yet, 666 copies ;>)

Amaranthine Rain has Been Released!

In eighteen new and previously published short stories, Zander Vyne twists the formulas—finishing dangerously kinky sex with unexpected happy endings, abandoning distressed damsels in knight-in-shining-armor tales to their own devices, and leading readers down unexpected paths, where chaos hovers just under the surface of normality. 

Featuring characters that traverse the edges of sexuality, seemingly mild plots that sink into deep horror, passions that lead from commuter trains to vampire lairs, dragon caves to hotel bars, book stores to fortuneteller’s tents, each setting is as distinct as the people we meet inside. Whether we are voyeurs with an all access pass, inside the twisted brain of a cold killer, or a broken woman finding new strength, each story extends the limits of erotic fiction. 

Choices are made with irrevocable and surprising consequences. Disaster is courted or barely skirted. Amoral protagonists and antagonists swap roles, then fluidly swap back. The lush layering that gives Zander Vyne's work such a strong sense of life is particularly apparent in the title story, which opens with a man waking in a lush garden, vines gripping him in possessive caresses. Flashing before his eyes is a storm of memories of his wife and his life, intertwined with love, sins, regrets, death and eventually redemption. Or . . . not. 

These stories are freaks, much like the characters who inhabit them are misfits. They purposefully leave us with unanswered questions. Some of these stories are held together with a stone foundation of love. Others have had love—and any notions of happily ever after—surgically excised, leaving the reader raw and excited, if not aroused.

The Hothouse


I was gardening this morning.

I love spending time with my hands in the dirt, watching things grow. It's worth the labor and sweat involved. As I was weeding, I was thinking of the writing project I am working on with Remittance Girl. I don't want to give too much away, but it's botanical in nature (sort of). I'm enjoying the give and take involved in writing with a partner, learning to give up a bit of ego, and appreciate what the process is teaching me. The hardest part so far has been waiting for my "turn". So, today, I decided to work on a little something of my own and dug this out of the soil of imagination. To make it more fun, I set it in a summery greenhouse and gave myself an exact 1,000 word count to work with. It's probably more porno than erotica, but I hope you enjoy it. Leave me a comment to let me know.
