Focus for Fall of 2015 and beginning of 2016 - We are working on getting more work published and offering resources for artists and authors.

Published 2015 Available on Amazon!

Our studio is supporting the adult romance side of our studio and taking a break from other literature.  

       These short stories will leave you craving more after one read.  Each story pulls you into the secret world of four women from different worlds, and ends with a poetic remembrance of passing through the bird market street in Hong Kong.  What would you do if you could fulfill your fantasy? Let the unnamed woman, Lily, Lucy, and Catalina lead you through their encounters filled with music, silk, lace and ties as they unleash their desires.   Explore the lingering thought of someone you met in an elevator, danced with at club or had a crush on but never had the chance.  Warning: you might need to unwind the tension in your body after you finish reading.
