My debut novella, THE MARK, is a gritty erotic tale of what examinations could have been like during the witch trial madness of the 1600’s. Since it’s erotica not horror, it completely turns history upside down. In history, accused witches were not granted pleasures of any kind. In The Mark, it is only through pleasure that they can be freed.
May 27th, the release date for The Mark – which is Book 1 in my Immoral Virtue Trilogy – is not only my birthday, but it is also the 322 anniversary of the creation of the Court of Oyer and Terminer. This was the court formed specifically to oversee the Salem witch trials. It seemed to me like a good day for a release. 🙂
Over the next few weeks, I’ll post teasers about my book as well as some historical references so you can see how dark the times were for those accused of witchcraft and how they just might be willing – as a way to avoid some of the harsher punishments – to submit fully as I have them do in my Immoral Virtue Trilogy.
