Jury Member: Michael Knight

Michael Knight

During the five weeks in which you can enter for the Smut Marathon 2018, the jury members introduce themselves.  You have already ‘met’ Tiggs, Marc van Lier and Molly Moore, and this week Michael Knight introduces himself. Just like his wife Molly, Michael is known to many. He is the Technical Director at Eroticon and has been and always will be the rescue to many a self-hosting blogger when they run into trouble. His technical knowledge seems limitless.

Hi Smutmarathoners!

@domsigns here writing my introduction as a jury member for this exciting journey. I am supposed to tell you some things about me and how I will be looking at and considering your work.

I suppose some background for those of you lucky enough to have not stumbled across me before. I am probably best known for the smartest decision I even made, marrying the amazingly talented Mollysdailykiss. She and I met online on a erotic writers forum many years ago while I was living in the US. On this (now dead) site I proofread erotic stories before they were published as well as participating on the forums. After meeting (and falling passionately in love with) Molly I started doing the proofreading for her website too.

Now I live here in the UK with Molly in a 24×7 D/s life. We have explored many things together over the last 7 years and have worked side by side the entire time. In fact, at this very moment as I type this Bio she is typing hers as well.

I suppose you might want to know if I have any other qualifications to be on this jury as I am going to be reading all of your fabulous writing. All I have to offer really is that I have been reading erotica and smut for a very long time now and even have made some feebly attempts to write some of my own on This D/s life. That writing project taught me a lot about what it takes to me a writer and blogger. It is hard. Some of you folks have been doing this for a lot longer than I attempted and are still going strong. For that I salute you, and for those of you that are new I say welcome and stick with it. I really look forward to what will be a really exciting project.

I often read the original smut marathon competitions and have followed many of the writers who took part. Some are still writing and some have moved on to other things but they all left sexy memories for me.

The thing that really makes me excited to read a good story is when it is written in a way that takes me out of my head and immerses me in the world they have created. There is nothing else in the world like it. So lead me down the garden path to a place I have never seen before and show me something I never expected and you will win a place in my heart and mind. I truly envy that skill and it is what draws me in, over and over.
