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...




To my absolute delight I am immortalised on the "Islands of Erotica" in the Map of Literature by artist Martin Vargic. You should so buy this awesome best-seller of a book!
I will be at Smut Manchester at Bangkok Bar, Manchester, U.K. on the 24th October 2015. There are workshops, stalls, AN ART CLASS, burlesque performances and cups of tea for all smut-lovers (writers and readers) to enjoy. Plus of course the world-famous Erotic Tombola(!) The Smut events just go from strength to strength. There's even a dungeon at this one!
I will be attending Nine Worlds Geekfest, on the 12th-14th August 2016
