Interview with Alexandra Amalova, author of Literal Fantasies

Literal Fantasies – subtitled ‘One lonely man; four unique women; twelve incredible hours’ – is set almost entirely over the course of a single day in a hotel suite somewhere in England.

Harry, heartbroken and newly single, has turned to the Internet for solace. A chat room exchange inspires him to try his hand at erotic writing and he soon has steamy stories posted on several sites.

He receives an email from a woman called Cath saying how much she and her three friends enjoy his work. She explains how the four shop workers also write erotica and have weekly ‘Literal Fantasy’
evenings where they drink wine, exchange and enhance their stories then embellish them with saucy snaps. Harry says he would love to be a fly on the wall at one of their get-togethers and offers to write a story that involves them all, yet the women counter with something more enticing.

We’re intrigued. Go on…
They want Harry to join them, to be that fly on the wall he so craved to be. He apprehensively agrees and a hotel is booked on a not too distant Thursday. Naturally, he fantasises about what the day will bring, but all his fantasies will fall short of the reality that awaits him: indeed, the experience will change the lives of all five forever.

So what genre is this? It sounds very erotic.
The book’s genre is definitely erotic fiction, though with a healthy dose of erotic romance thrown in.

What kind of readers will it appeal to?
The book will appeal to any open-minded and intelligent lover of erotica.

Can you tell us what happens next to Harry and the four women?
The day arrives. Room 351. Harry takes a deep breath and raises his shaking hand to knock…

Sue, a young, flirty and attractive blonde opens the door. Harry next meets Vicky, plain and shy and oddly out of place. He is immediately drawn to Cath – a diminutive, bubbly, Irish redhead – the woman with whom he corresponded.

However, Cath has omitted to tell him that – possibly for fear of him backing out – the parameters have changed. They would now like Harry to be more than a mere observer, would like him to take part in their role plays, to improvise and sometimes lead the way. At first he is reticent, but eventually agrees, though is understandably nervous. Tentatively, the four start with a schoolroom scenario set by Martha. But where is Martha, the elusive and mysterious driving force behind their Literal Fantasy sessions, and will she ever appear?

As the day progresses and boundaries are stretched, Harry has to deal not only with his own insecurities and uncertainties, but with those of the disparate females with whom he must bare all. What are the expectations of these four very different women? And how on Earth will Harry ever be able to live up to them?

Don’t give too much away. We want to find out as we read the book.
Where did the idea come from?
I was publishing on an erotic story site when I received an email from a group of women who said they liked my work and wanted me to help them edit some of their stories. They told me about their ‘Wine and Fantasy’ evenings at which they wrote erotica together and embellished the text with sexy anonymous snaps. Both this story and its title evolved from our many subsequent emails.

Now you’re wondering do other elements of the story relate so directly to real life events, aren’t you? Well, that would be telling…

You’re such a tease! Have you written any other books that we should read next?
I have ten paranormal erotic stories published with the collective title of ‘Sensual Ghosts‘ and a collection of naughty shorties soon to be published with the title of ‘Coffee with Cock‘.

Tell us a bit about yourself.
Though born in the Russia, I came to the UK when I was very small. I am twenty-seven years old and am single, with neither children nor pets, though hope to add at least one of those to my life in the near future.

Do you have a website where we can keep up with your work?

How can we follow you on Twitter and/or Facebook?

What’s next?
Four further collections of short erotica are in the pipeline, and then, when my mind and computer are clear, I will pick up my almost finished sexy sci-fi novel, ‘Inversion 1‘, and crack on to its explosive conclusion!
