Smut Marathon 2019: Results round 9

Sex and humor… laughter releases good hormones, which leads to good sex, and which is why they say that sex and humor go together so well. That might be the case in real life, but writing about sex and humor is a whole different kind of ball game. And, taking it up a notch to write about a love triangle, and make it humorous… yes, that was a challenge, and to get to the final

Smut Marathon 2019: Voting Round 9 (Semi-finals)

When I decided on the assignment for the semi-final round, I knew it was going to be a difficult one. Being in this stage of the competition, the writers needed to be challenged into making a real effort to reach the final round of the competition. As always, they grace you with their words. It’s up to you, the reader, to decide whether the writers have fulfilled the assignment and get your vote to secure

Smut Marathon 2019: Results round 8

Round 8 was the quarter finals and I can’t believe we are heading for the semi-finals and then the finals of this year’s marathon. Which means, shortly after that, the entries for the Smut Marathon 2020 will open. Twenty-one writers went through to round 8, and sadly four of those writers had to withdraw, all due to circumstances out of their control. Each of them was sad about having to leave the marathon like that.

Smut Marathon 2019: Voting Round 8

Even though I know it can happen, and I have mentioned this in several rounds before, I was surprised at the number of withdrawals in this round. All of them due to personal circumstances, which withheld them from writing a story. This is very much part of the marathon, that people have to stop for various reasons, but in this stage of the marathon it normally doesn’t happen. I guess I have now been proven

Enigma Variations: A 2018 Smut Marathon Guide to Erotic Writing

In the past months Resonance Press and I have worked hard on the Smut Marathon 2018 anthology, and because of personal circumstances it took a bit longer to get the book out than we anticipated before. But, finally the book is here! The book bears the title of the winner of the 2018 Smut Marathon – Exhibit A – and it has selected stories from all the rounds of the Smut Marathon 2018. Those selections

Smut Marathon 2019: Results round 7

Round 7 is the first of the knockout phase of the Smut Marathon, meaning that those who ended with the least points (jury and public combined) at the end of the seventh voting round, will have to leave the competition. This is regardless of the points those writers have accumulated in the first six rounds of the competition. Since we had 26 writers in the seventh round, and only 21 are allowed to advance to

We have come to the end of the rankings phase of the Smut Marathon 2019, and are entering the knockout phase, where writers have to leave the marathon at the end of all of the next rounds. And of course, now, at the end of the sixth round, where the writers had to write a story using the words ‘wedding dress’, fourteen writers will not continue to round 7.

Smut Marathon 2019: Results round 5

For the fifth assignment, the writers were all thrown into the dark. Some of them stayed in the dark, others ventured into the light, but all of them wrote wonderful and sexy stories. When I announced the results for the fourth voting round, I mentioned that I had some news about the anthology of the Smut Marathon 2018. I haven’t revealed anything just yet, but soon, very soon, I will! It’s really going to happen!
