A Little Something Different by Lucy Felthouse (includes PG-13 Excerpt)

A few months back, I was asked if I would consider writing something for an anthology. Naturally I was delighted to be asked and after finding out some more details, I accepted. What made it all the more exciting was the fact that several of my good buddies would also be contributing to the anthology.

What makes the anthology a little different from a) anything I've done before and b) anything I've seen before, is the fact that it's illustrated and definitely pure erotica, without a whiff of romance (I'm not saying that's a good or bad thing, I'm just pointing it out). The publisher, Sweetmeats Press sent me a copy of their first anthology to see what it was all about and I was blown away.

The Candy Box (the first anthology – so naughty it's been banned by Amazon) is dark, delicious and dirty and the illustrations are just amazing and incredibly detailed. As a result, the whole package is pretty graphic and definitely not for the faint of heart, but I was definitely up for the challenge.

After we were given the theme of the anthology, voyeurism, I began to formulate my idea. When I started writing, I deliberately made it very, very naughty and graphic – and because the tale is written from the male perspective, I used language to reflect this. All in all, I was pleased with the result and so was the anthology's editor. I hope readers are too!

My story, Caught in the Act is about 10,000 words long and will be appearing in the Immoral Views anthology, which is being released on 31st October. It'll be available in paperback and eBook format, and also includes deliciously dirty tales from my buddies Kay Jaybee, Lexie Bay, K D Grace and Rebecca Bond. As I mentioned before, the stories are illustrated so I can't wait to see what the artist makes of our naughty stories, but I can tell you this - you're in for a treat!

If you're looking for something a little different, then you should definitely check out Immoral Views. And remember, you heard it here first ;)


Excerpt from Caught in the Act:

When the door banged open and a group of his colleagues piled into the room, Police Constable David Beckett jumped, almost spilling his coffee onto his computer keyboard. He’d been enjoying a nice, peaceful game of Solitaire before beginning his shift and now they’d screwed his concentration, not to mention his high score. He closed down the game resignedly and wryly observed his workmates as they got whatever was riling them out of their system.

They were jostling and nudging one another, and there was some serious eyebrow wiggling going on. PC Beckett, Dave to his friends, could only guess that one of the guys had a new girlfriend and was being teased about it. Heaven knows, he’d been on the receiving end of such ribbing more than once, which is why he now kept his – currently non-existent – love life as private as he possibly could. Of course, that didn’t put a complete end to the teasing, as he now had to put up with the occasional joke about his sexuality.

Whatever it was they were talking about, it had gotten the guys seriously excited. As they drew closer to his end of the open plan office, Dave began to pick up snippets of the conversation. It didn’t help him to work out what was going on. In fact, it was like they were speaking a different language. He frowned, wondering if there’d been a TV show on last night that he’d missed and they’d all watched. He wasn’t much of a TV buff and was always the last to catch on to shows everyone else was glued to. But of course they’d all been on a night shift last night, so it couldn’t be that. Dave waited. He knew he’d find out soon enough.

As some of the boys began to move towards Dave’s end of the office, it was like they’d only just realised he was there. Instead of shouting the customary greetings across the room and settling down at their own workstations, several of the PCs congregated at Dave’s desk. They were still wearing stupid grins and Dave was, by now, was getting fed up of being the last one in on the joke.

“So,” Dave said, eager now to find out what all the excitement was about, “what’s going on?”

“Mate!” said Tim, “You wouldn’t believe what you missed last night on shift!”

Sharing stories wasn’t uncommon within the office, particularly if they were funny ones. But in their line of work, there wasn’t much that was classed as unbelievable any more, so Dave knew it was going to be something of note. He raised his eyebrows inquiringly.

Tim continued, obviously desperate to impart the news. “We got a call sayin’ that there was some drug dealing goin’ on in a car park. It sounded pretty big, so we did a raid. Only, when we got there, it wasn’t quite what we expected.”

Tim glanced at the other two guys with him, Jamie and Chris, and the three of them burst into hearty guffaws. Dave looked around the room, and a couple of other officers who must have also been there were peering over at them out of the corner of their eyes, with smirks on their faces.

“Well!” he said, getting annoyed now, “What is it? What happened?”

“Fucking hell,” said Jamie, “keep your hair on, mate. You’ll think it’s funny, too, honest. We’re just sorry you missed it. Go on, Tim, get on with it.”

Pulling himself together, Tim looked back at Dave, his eyes still crinkled with mirth. “Sorry, buddy. Anyway, as I was sayin’, we gets to this car park at the back of the country park, you know the one” – Dave nodded his acquiescence – “and drive in. We’re going in pretty stealthy as we don’t want anyone disappearing off into the bushes so when we pull up, they’re still gettin’ on with what they were doin’.”

He paused for breath, and Dave waited, knowing this couldn’t possibly be the end of the story.

“Naturally, we was a bit confused as to why they hadn’t spotted us yet. Normally they’re a bit more alert, aren’t they?” The question rhetorical, Tim continued, “So we got out of the cars and got closer, thinkin’ surely someone has heard or seen us by now. Personally, I wondered if they were all so out of their trees that they had no idea what was goin’ on. By the time we got on top of ‘em, though, we saw what the problem was.”

Dave raised his eyebrows, waiting for the punchline. It didn’t take long.

“They weren’t drug dealers, mate!” he said, clapping Dave heavily on the shoulder, almost making him headbutt his computer screen. “They were doggers!”

I am always surprised when Amazon bans something. Limits it to adults, yes but to ban something? (It just makes me what to read it more, lol)
