News, Reviews and Interviews by Lucy Felthouse

I recently edited my second anthology, and it is now available in eBook and paperback format. Seducing the Myth has been available since early August, and like most authors/editors, I eagerly awaited feedback and reviews. And over the past few days, I've been inundated! Most excitingly, they're all extremely positive:

“Overall I have to say I was pretty pleased with this anthology. The stories were on the fairly short side, but were by in large really hot. Not all of them ended happily, some of the authors chose to stick closely to the ending of the original myth or tale (The True Folly of Icarus by Saskia Walker for instance) and there were some surprises (The Lady of the Flowers is based on a Welsh legend) amongst the normally re-imagine Greek/Roman mythology. And happiest of most I found a few new authors to pick up and try!” 4 out of 5, Night Owl Reviews

“Seducing the Myth will seduce your mind with the hot tales of love and lust contained within its mesmerizing pages… Overall this is an interesting and varied collection with a variety of tales, a true cornucopia of endings, beginnings and middles with lots of lusty passion, tantalizing intrigue and witty charm to keep you coming back time and time again to dip into this treasure trove and pull out a fresh gem.” 5 out of 5, Erotic Whispers

“A collection of short stories filled with erotic intent with tons of mystical creatures this book is a great read! I found myself reading each story in earnest and wanting more and more. This collection was expertly put together to entice you into a whole new world that was enjoyable to read! If you are looking for a great collection of short stories that leaves you wanting more this book is totally for you.” 4 out of 5, Judging The Book By Its Pages

Naturally, myself and the other authors are delighted! Thanks guys, I couldn't have done it without you!

Now, where are these interviews I spoke of, you may be wondering. Well, they're not here. It was a hint of what's to come. October is a very busy month for me, both in terms of releases (four!) and guest blog posts and interviews (I've lost count!). However, if you keep an eye on the sidebar of my website, the dates and URLs will be there so you can check out my other appearances, and many of them will also have competitions, so don't miss out! Also, as we speak I'm away on holiday with no computer or internet access, but don't let that stop you leaving me comments. I'll check in when I'm back!


Seducing the Myth: Myths and Legends with an Erotic Twist is a collection of 24 tantalising tales that lead you on a decadent journey through mythologies the world over. As well as stories from the popular Greek and Roman periods, this anthology will also delight you with Arabian, Arthurian, Hindu, Jewish, Norse, Slavic, Sumerian and Welsh myths and legends. Add in a delicious sprinkling of fairies, mermaids and ancient fertility rituals and you have a recipe for a wickedly erotic read!
