"With his hands on my hips, he let me set the pace. I hadn’t been aroused until I felt him squeeze me and mutter encouragement, then my body ignited. I needed to come, wanted to share the pleasure with him in this stolen moment."

Is there violence in the book? Yes. Is there sex? Absolutely. Are they sometimes offered together on the same plate? It goes without saying. Dorian dishes it out, but even more so, he eagerly consumes it when applied to himself. He lives for sensation – and after living for more than a century, he requires increasingly extreme ways in which to achieve new sensation. Is this novel suitable for readers of a delicate sensibility? No, it is not.Mitzi Szereto, on The Wilde Passions of Dorian Gray
She is like the personal shopper of erotic writing. Instead of having to spend hours perusing the aisles of your local Barnes and Noble, she picks the best, adds a theme and voila a happy erotic reader she makes of us all.Clitical, on Rachel Kramer Bussel and The Big Book of Orgasms
Hi! Are your internships in-office or are they remote?Anonymous
Hello! They are typically in office, but there is the possibility of a remote one for the right candidate. Please feel free to get in touch with Samantha at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Cleis Press is regularly seeking editorial and marketing interns to help our dynamic publishing team. Candidates with Public Relations, English, Journalism, Editing or a related field are welcome to apply. Interns should be interested in pursuing a career in publishing or a related industry. Must be detail-oriented, able to handle multiple projects at once, and possess good writing skills.
As an editorial intern you would help with incoming manuscript assessments, participate in editorial meetings, and conduct author research. Interns also have the opportunity to help develop book projects from inception to manuscript.
As a marketing intern you would help with promoting books and authors through print, electronic and online media as well as special events. You would help develop media lists, press materials and themed pitches, respond to media inquiries by sending review copies and aid with press mailings.
The internship is unpaid and candidates must commit to 16 hours per week for a term of 14-16 weeks. Please send resumé, cover letter, and a 1-2 page writing sample (on any subject or from class assignments) via email to email@example.com.
