"A Succubus for Halloween" is out!

It's publication day! (Or rather, second publication day).

My 3rd erotic horror short story collection, A Succubus for Halloween and other tales of Terrifying Temptresses, is now available as an ebook.

You can pick it up here:

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Succubus-Halloween-other-Terrifying-Temptresses-ebook/dp/B0B8XNZGN9

Kobo: https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/a-succubus-for-halloween-2

Barnes and Noble: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-succubus-for-halloween-m-e-hydra/1104316352

Apple: https://books.apple.com/gb/book/a-succubus-for-halloween/id6443244356

Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/98067



Here's the obligatory blurb:

Tempting, wanton, enticing, gorgeous... lethal.

Halloween is a time for chills and thrills.  A time for femme fatales to sharpen their claws and take to the night in search of fresh prey.  Cuddle up in front of an open fire as M. E. Hydra brings you a delectable dirty dozen tales of ravishing succubi and other sensual predators.

A man uses a succubus as instrument of revenge in “A Succubus for Halloween”.  An unusual treatment for claustrophobia is prescribed in “Naga Special Massage”.  In “The Pearls of the Mediterranean” a group of holidaying lads discover an exotic nudist beach with a secret.  Things get wet and slippery while “Oil Wrestling a Succubus”.  Against a backdrop of demonic invasion, a soldier is subjected to the fleshy pleasures of “Capramendes, the Milkmaid”.  And finally, a doctor finds a sexy supernatural companion for “A Halloween Party with a Succubus”.

Sit back and enjoy these and other tales of weird, wanton and wicked temptresses.  They’ll give you pleasures beyond your wildest dreams, and terrors beyond your darkest nightmares...

This is a republication of the title I had out through Excessica.  Sadly, Excessica is no more, so I'm putting the old books back up under my own author account.  To mark the occasion I've redone the cover and added an afterword with some commentary on the stories.  If you have the original you probably don't need to get this, but I'm not going to turn down the extra royalties if someone wants to pick it up to help me out.

Because I get questions asking if these are just the same stories that are up on Literotica.  Some are originally from there, but the collections also contain stories that are exclusive to them and can't be found anywhere else.  There are 5 exclusives in this one.  "Oil Wrestling a Succubus" features some sexy femdom oil wrestling and links a couple of plotlines to my mobster character, Koontz (You'll also see the succubus from this in HoHH soon, hopefully).  "Serving the Earth Mother" is quite possibly one of the grosser stories I've written (and probably wouldn't be allowed up on Literotica!).  Of most interest will likely be the Nicole story, "A Halloween Party with a Succubus".

Anyway, it's out and I hope you all have fun reading it!

"A Succubus for Halloween" is available for pre-order

I'm still having a few problems at Amazon, but gradually powering through them.  My 3rd short story collection, A Succubus for Halloween and other tales of Terrifying Temptresses is now available for pre-order at various places:

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0B8XNZGN9
Kobo: https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/a-succubus-for-halloween-2
Barnes and Noble: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-succubus-for-halloween-m-e-hydra/1104316352



Here is the obligatory blurb:

Tempting, wanton, enticing, gorgeous... lethal.

Halloween is a time for chills and thrills.  A time for femme fatales to sharpen their claws and take to the night in search of fresh prey.  Cuddle up in front of an open fire as M. E. Hydra brings you a delectable dirty dozen tales of ravishing succubi and other sensual predators.

Sit back and enjoy these and other tales of weird, wanton and wicked temptresses.  They’ll give you pleasures beyond your wildest dreams, and terrors beyond your darkest nightmares...

This is another republication.  With my previous publisher Excessica closing, I'm self-publishing all of my old books through my personal author account.  To mark the republication I've added a new cover and an afterword with some behind-scenes commentary on the stories.

While a lot of the stories originally showed up on Literotica and other places, there are some stories that can only be found in this collection, including the very nice Nicole story, "A Halloween Party with a Succubus".

As before, if you already have the old collection, you probably don't need to pick up the newer version, but I'm certainly not going to say no if you wish to buy it to support my future writing!  I'd appreciate reviews if people can give them, but this is erotica (and fairly weird erotica at that!), so fully understand people wanting to remain anonymous with their purchases.

The official (re)publication date is this Friday (12th Aug).  I hope people have fun reading the collection then!

A Succubus for Valentine's Day is out! (sort of)

 My 2nd collection, "A Succubus for Valentine's Day and other tales of Perilous Pleasures" is now out (sort of).


Here is the obligatory blurb:

Alluring, exotic, delectable, sexy... dangerous.

M. E. Hydra returns with a second collection of thirteen sizzling stories featuring seductive succubi, amorous aliens and other sexy femme fatales.

“A Succubus for Valentine’s Day” shows the perils of letting a succubus play cupid.  Two tourists discover a dark secret lurking in Amsterdam’s red light district in “Venus of the Red Lights”.  In “Knight vs Succubus”, a knight battles for his life and soul against a cunning and seductive demon.  A man finds out his pleasure planet of blue-skinned alien babes is not as it seems in “The Spiders of Thomisoidus”.  And finally, a young man has a very special date in “A Summer Dance with a Succubus”.

You will be enthralled, aroused, and terrified in equal measure by these and other tales of wicked, sensual predators.  They’ll give you pleasures beyond your wildest dreams, and terrors beyond your darkest nightmares...

This is my second collection of short stories, first published in 2011 through Excessica. I've republished it with a new cover and afterword (and a thorough editing pass to fix anything I missed the first time around). 

You can find it at

Kobo: https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/a-succubus-for-valentine-s-day

Barnes and Noble: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-succubus-for-valentines-day-me-hydra/1141813683?ean=2940166601001

Apple Books: https://books.apple.com/gb/book/a-succubus-for-valentines-day/id6443171589

It should also have updated at Smashwords, but check the preview first to make sure you're getting the updated version (the copyright page should mention cover art by Wombo AI and a 2nd edition date of 2022, which should indicate it's the correct version):
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/41826

I also uploaded it to Google Play this morning, so it should go live there in a couple of days.  Check my author page:
https://play.google.com/store/books/author?id=M.E.+Hydra

Where it isn't currently available, sadly, is Amazon.  I'm working on it and hopefully will have it available at some point, but I'm having to deal with staggering levels of incompetency from Amazon KDP's support department.  I'll put up a post describing my 'experiences' in full grisly details in a few days.  Kafka-esque nightmare doesn't even begin to cover it.

UPDATE: The problems at Amazon appear to have been resolved.  You can now find it there as well:

A Succubus for Christmas is out!

It's publication day!  Or rather, second publication day.  My 1st collection, "A Succubus for Christmas and other tales of Devilish Delights" is now live on Amazon (and other ebook stores) and ready to buy.  You can find it here:

https://www.amazon.com/Succubus-Christmas-other-Devilish-Delights-ebook/dp/B0B66LRCT4




And the obligatory back cover blurb:

Beautiful, seductive, enthralling, sensual, irresistible... deadly.

The succubus is an enduring icon of myth – a demon that seduces and sleeps with her prey before taking their life and soul.  In this collection M. E. Hydra brings you thirteen erotically charged tales of sexy succubi and other exotic creatures.

In “A Succubus for Christmas” a man discovers his surprise sexy gift also possesses a dark side.  “The Masterton Covenant” asks how much would you risk for one night of perfect pleasure.  Four men are taken to a very special establishment in “Flesh Pitchers of Prague”.  A tough demon slayer discovers why ‘men can’t fight them’ in “Slayer vs. Succubus”.  A man is drawn into a deadly yet delectable web by a sexy spider woman in “Arachne’s Web”.

You will be enthralled, aroused, and terrified in equal measure by these and other tales of dark, seductive beauties.  They’ll give you pleasures beyond your wildest dreams, and terrors beyond your darkest nightmares...

This is a republication of my 2010 short story collection.  My previous publisher, Excessica, has sadly closed their doors, so I'm republishing my old books under my author account.  To mark the republication I've added a new cover and an afterword detailing where the stories first appeared and the inspiration behind them.

The others will follow over the next few weeks.  I'm also hoping I'll kick my lazy ass in shape and get that brand new 7th collection finished before the end of year as well (or at least early next year).

These are mostly my early stories before I started to tie them together into a shared universe.  One of them, "Arachne's Web", can only be found in this collection and might arguably be the best one in there.

If you already have the old collection, you probably don't need to pick up the newer version, but I'm certainly not going to say no if you wish to buy it to support my future writing!  I'd appreciate reviews if people can give them, but this is erotica (and fairly weird erotica at that!), so fully understand people wanting to remain anonymous with their purchases.

The ebook is scheduled to go live on Friday (15th), but is available for pre-order now.  I'm not normally the best at self-promotion, so I'm trying to give a little more pre-warning than usual.  A spike of sales is usually good for pushing a book up the ranks and helping more readers to discover it.

More importantly, I hope you all have fun reading it!

Story Inspiration - A Succubus for Saint Patrick's Day

And it's onto the last of my collections - the 6th one, "A Succubus for Saint Patrick's Day".  This is another of the irregular Q'n'A posts I've been doing.  If you have any questions about stories in this collection or anywhere else, fire away below.

As a reminder, here are the stories from that collection:

1) A Succubus for Saint Patrick's Day *
2) The High-School Sweetheart Removal Agency
3) A Special Tube of Lube *
4) A Real-Life Goo Girl
5) Busted Bankster
6) Number 66 *
7) Rogue vs Lamia *
8) The First Time
9) Snared, Sucked and Slurped
10) Pussy-Wrapped
11) The Night Doyle Lowry Saw a Terrible Thing and was Sucked into a Quagmire of Sensual Depravity *
12) Crabs **
13) Joe Boyega Picks a Bad Night to Become a Rapist *

* exclusive to this collection
** also appeared in one of eXcessica's anthologies

This was still from that 'hot' period where I was outputting a lot of conventional short stories.  Unfortunately, after this I got a little distracted with my blog and a few failed novel attempts.  I did create a lot of H-space Bestiary short stories, but those need work to make them publishable (which is a plan I have at some point).

I didn't quite get ahead of the monthly HoHH work.  That's probably going to go right to the end of the month.  I still need to take some time off to get the collections back up.  I think I might use June for that and maybe also see if I can finally get that 7th collection together.

Story Inspiration - A Succubus for Remembrance

Continuing my impromptu Q'n'As about stories in my collections.  We're now at the 5th collection: "A Succubus for Remembrance".

Here's the list of stories from that collection:

1) A Succubus for Remembrance *
2) The Skinning Knife **
3) Vernon the Volunteer *
4) Trent the Traitor
5) Hugh the Hero *
6) Slugjob *
7) Iron Girders and Steel Springs
8) Ways to Break a Good Man #1 *
9) Ways to Break a Good Man no.2
10) Ways to Break a Good Man 3 *
11) Vampiric Boobies
12) Street-Walking with a Succubus
13) Nazi vs Succubus ***

* exclusive to this collection
** also appeared in eXcessica's "Colors" anthology
*** I'm pretty sure if I tried uploading this one to Literotica I'd be banned for life :D  

If you have any questions about the inspiration behind or about anything that happened in these stories (or anything else), ask away below.

This was from a relatively 'hot' period of short story writing, so quite a few exclusives in this collection.  I'm still trying to get these collections back up ASAP, so people that haven't read them before can catch up.  I was hoping to tick away with it alongside working on House of Hellish Harlots, but that hasn't worked out so far.  What I'm planning to do is get the regular monthly release for HoHH ready early, then spend a couple of weeks focused purely on all the nitty-gritty of formatting the manuscripts and uploading the collections to the various ebook sites.

ETA: Blogger seems to be eating comments again.  I don't know why.  I'm getting email notifications of comments, which then don't show up here.  If you're having problems posting, if I get the post through email, I'll repost it and answer the questions.  This is the site doing this.  I don't delete comments unless they're abusive or spam.

For a reminder, here is the list of stories from that collection:

* exclusive to this collection

If you have any questions about the inspiration behind or anything that happened in these particular stories, fire away below.

As I mentioned, the last couple of months have been disrupted by Covid and other distractions.  I'm trying to get up to speed again.  I was blocked for a while trying to write the Story Inspiration segment for "A Succubus for Christmas".  I've now got over and completed that.  I need to prep the manuscript and give it a thorough editing pass.  Once that's done, I'll get the collection back up on Amazon and other places ASAP.
