Welcome to the website of Janine Ashbless! I'm a writer of fantasy and paranormal erotica and - more rarely - scorching romantic adventure. I like to write about magic and myth and mystery, dangerous power dynamics, borderline terror, and the not-quite-human. And hot filthy sex, obviously...



Smut by the Sea 2015

I will be at Smut by the Sea at Scarborough Library, U.K. on the 23rd May 2015. I'm doing a quickie reading in the smut-slam, but there are also workshops, stalls, burlesque performances and cups of tea for all smut-lovers (writers and readers) to enjoy. Plus of course the world-famous Erotic Tombola(!) ... This is the third annual Smut by the Sea and it is always a lovely, relaxed social event. And entry is FREE!
Eroticon 2015

I will be attending Eroticon 2015, in Bristol, U.K. on 1st and 2nd August 2015. Eroticon is a cutting-edge conference for sex-writers of all kinds, from bloggers and novelists to journalists and reviewers. It is an intense and incredibly valuable weekend of presentations, workshops, panel discussions and cups of coffee. Take my word for it: if you write about sex this will make your year.

This year I have been asked to do a presentation on writing erotica in the fantasy and fairy-tale genres! I'm honoured and thrilled and nervous. Just pray I don't bring along a dragon for a live demonstration...
