Welcum to Scandalous Publishing

Unlock the Forbidden, Discover Your Inner Goddess with Feminist Erotica!

Scandalous Publishing was 16 years in the making. Seriously. Back in late ’99 when I was a freshman in college and writing articles about dating and sex for a couple of newspapers, a mousy little friend of mine was plugging away at her first novel. It was a really nasty story about a sorority of whip-wielding mean girls who ruled the school. To this day she swears it’s loosely based on actual events. One-part torrid femdom fantasy and one-part late night cable TV sorority sex romp, Jasmine’s Wicked Whims was quietly tucked away on author Jennifer McNeil‘s old laptop after being passed around to our perverted friends. She always said there was a future in erotic fiction for women but I was intent on starting a magazine modeled after Playgirl. So, together, we founded Scandalouswoman.com. Around the same time, Tina Engler was founding Ellora’s Cave and well on her way to getting rich.

Sigh.

We’ve done ‘ok’ with our scandalouswomen but we won’t be retiring soon. So, over the years, as the two of us have operated Scandalouswomen and watched as women’s digital erotica has grown and prospered, we’ve discussed getting into it ourselves. We officially published Jasmine in late 2011 – well before the 50 Shades of Grey craze – and sold a respectable number of copies (while raising the ire of the sorority the story was modeled after.) NO WAY could Jennifer had known the inner working of their little girl’s club! Seriously, the reviews they left were hysterical. But hey! I just thought they should appreciate the notoriety bestowed upon them by our book and get over it! 🙂

But writing novels is time consuming and as we settled into our grownup lives with husbands and lovers and kids and jobs and scandalouswoman.com, we only talked about digital erotica for the next five years.

Enter Megan Hussey.

In 2013 I ran an ad on the old Odesk site seeking women’s lifestyle writers for Scandalouswoman and she responded. I was impressed by her former affiliation with Playgirl magazine and hired her immediately. She had a passion for male escorts and strippers which, I must admit, I find appealing as well. What I didn’t realize then was she was also the author of several dozen erotic e-books. Once I figured that out, I picked her brain incessantly on the topic and probably made a pest of myself. By mid 2016 she essentially said, “shit or get off the pot” and donated a book to me to start Scandalous Publishing. That book was Of Power and Passion. Not only does it feature two strong female heroines, it also prominently figures a very HOT gigolo and political intrigue. Very timely stuff in an election year.

Jennifer, who wasn’t as involved with Scandalouswomen as much as she once was, happened to bring up the subject of an e-book line based on the ideals and mythology of scandalouswomen around the same time. She was anxious to write in that form again and to prove it, whipped out Moan, Alysia in about 32 hours. It’s a little novella about a reformed hot mess who revisits her wild past to re-ignite the passion her and her husband once had.

Now, occasionally, I have to run ads on various freelance sites for writers for scandalouswoman.com. In the fall of 2016, 20-something Cassidy Pittman applied and, after a brief discussion about the website and our half-baked plans to do e-books, she pounced on the idea. She’d ghostwritten several already for a client and wanted to write bold multi-sexual libertines. I’d been fixated on updating Lady Chatterley’s Lover for some time so she weaved a summary of what became Lady Chatterley: The Next Generation, about the grand niece of Constance Chatterley from the DH Lawrence classic and the niece of Cynthia Chatterley, the character featured in the late 70s soft porn cult movie favorite Young Lady Chatterley.

Cassidy’s heroine, Scarlet Chatterley, is a very well-developed character. I said from the start I want to really know Scarlet – from the foods she likes to the music she listens to, and the author really delivered. Cassidy treats the source material with reverence, too, which should please fans of the original.

Amazing success followed! Just kidding! No, sales were slow. In the late 2010s the bottom had apparently fallen out of the digital erotica market. So, no new books were produced between Chatterley and the start of the pandemic. Then the prolific Amber Monroe walked into the party. She had several first-person vignette-style books based on some really torrid adventures in femdom, cuckolding, and cheating. REALLY HOT! And she continued pounding them out over the next several years. 

So that’s where we are now. 18 books in the can and several others in various stages of production. Sales have been a little slow, but we expected that. We are, after all, late to this game. But we believe bold, open-minded feminist heroines aren’t really being ‘done’ in this genre. We hope to change that. And we hope you take a chance on our books.
