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...



The Prison of the Angels

Romance Novel: third in the Book of the Watchers trilogy

The third in my fallen angel trilogy, The Prison of the Angels, has been released by Sinful Press!
Named and Shamed
Fierce Enchantments
Rights to Named and Shamed and Fierce Enchantments have reverted with the closing of Sweetmeats Press - both have now been re-published with lovely new covers by Sinful Press.

The King's Viper
I have begun self-publishing reverted works with my Ashbless "brand" covers. Erotica is released with red covers, Erotic Romance with blue, as above.


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!

Recent Publications:

Heart of Flame
In Appreciation of their Cox
The King's Viper

Off to Fan

Not only am I writing a horror story this week (which is why I've neglected my blog slightly) but I'm packing for a weekend of  Spec-fic-themed sitting in the bar panelshows and talks and filmshows and stuff at FantasyCon  2018 - in the lovely city of Chester.

I haven't made any attempt at getting on a panel this time, but I do have a personal interest in two books being launched this weekend: The Scent of Tears 

which contains my story "The Scent of Tears"

and The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors:

which contains my story "Remember"

so I should be found signing books and drinking the free wine :-)

But mostly I will be chatting to people much more clued-in than I am, and TRYING IN VAIN not to bring home lots more lovely books, LOL
