Sinful Pleasures, from Sinful Press

Indulge in some Sinful Pleasures – you deserve them.

It’s not all about where you put your commas, the life of a Jefferson Franklin editor.

We’re an editing house that understands writers, because all our Senior Editors are writers too. But it’s rare that we collaborate on any project.

Sinful Pleasures, a new anthology of erotic short stories from Sinful Press, based in Swansea, bucks that trend, including stories from both Senior Editor Gail B Williams, and Editor-in-Chief Tony Fyler.

Taking It

Gail’s story, Taking It, simmers workplace tension to boiling point and explores BDSM themes of devotion, obedience, power and love. It also takes the reader into the world of hidden sexual dimensions beneath the professional masks of office politics. Gail brings a gift for complex emotional misdirection to a story that pulses with passion and potential.

Lazy Sunday

Tony’s story, Lazy Sunday, centres on a long-married couple, and how life can get better, and hotter, the more you get to know a person. His married couple turn an ordinary Sunday morning into an unforgettable experience.

In The Company Of Genius

Gail and Tony are honoured to be included in this hot new anthology alongside experienced and professional erotica-writers, including Janine Ashbless and Sonni de Soto. So why not grab your copy today? Sinful Pleasures is available now in electronic and paperback formats from Amazon and from Sinful Press itself.

Shades of Aether, starring Amethyst Forester – your new steampunk heroine.

If you’ve been looking for your new steampunk heroine, you can stop looking – Shades of Aether, by Jefferson Franklin Senior Editor Gail B Williams, brings you Amethyst Forester.

Amethyst can tell you the ins and outs of an aetheric power source, but when her friend and mentor Professor Richards is murdered, leaving her set up for life and with half his house, she faces a whole new challenge – how to navigate in nineteenth century Society, with its presumptuous men and its passive aggressive women. In a world of airships, artwork, a fierce battle between the rival energy-lobbies of aetheric and electrical power,  international espionage and domestic murder, Amethyst must try to find a way to be both a woman, an engineer, and increasingly a lady, while trying to make sense of her best friend’s murder.

New Friends

Amethyst’s world is suddenly full of new friends, like queen of Society Lady Garrington-Smythe, and her daughter Bobbie, who scandalises Society by dressing and living like a man. Most of all though it’s Benjamin Maker, Lord Fotheringham, who complicates Amethyst’s new life, not least because the Professor left him the other half of his house, and neither Society, Amethyst’s father, nor Maker’s wife will not approve.

Despite coming from different backgrounds, Amethyst Forester and Benjamin Maker are a great team, unravelling the secrets of Professor Richards’ fantastic inventions, battling burglars on a nightly basis, and uncovering the mystery of the ugliest brooch on earth.

But can Forester and Maker find out who killed their friend and why? Can they discover why Members of Parliament are changing their minds about aetheric power, seemingly overnight? Can they work out the connections in time to save the House of Lords and prevent a major international incident?

And most of all, can they fight Society’s assumptions and the power of their own forbidden attraction?

Shades of Aether is available as an e-book and a paperback now at and Get your copy today, and say hello to your new steampunk heroine. Doff your hat to Amethyst Forester.
