Desdmona's 2007 Story Contest

Exciting news! Shanna Germain has won Second Prize at Desdmona's Titillating Tattoo Contest for her sharp story 'To the Hilt'!

Here's what the judges said:

“And what do you do with these knives of yours?” he asked… The answer is only a small part of what keeps the reader enthralled in this piercing yarn. Add two unusual characters, each with a secret, drop them into a shiny, disquieting setting, and what you get is one delicious story that scrapes the edge of convention."

...read the whole story here.

(And I got an honourable mention for Salt, a story about Elsie and a sailor. "Most importantly, there is love—rooted, passionate, sacrificial—the best kind.")

All ten winning stories can be read at Desdmona's. The prize is run by Ruthie's Club erotic stories site, and there's some real gems up there if you're looking for a little divertissement. Enjoy!

Thanks ladies. And that pic is rather lovely, isn't it?
I cropped it - the whole thing has a woman on top of the box, looking down at her new toy.
