Like magazines? I have created a magazine shop website, and I'd love you to take a look after reading this story - please share with your friends on social media too, you would be doing me a great favour, and that's a small cost for all these free stories surely? We post all over the world!

WE ARE BACK After a period of server issues, I have now hopefully fixed the issues, and this site is slowly coming back online. Not everything may work initially, but please be patient and hopeufully it will all get sorted. No stories were lost, as I backed up the database, and no user details were comprimised, it was just a performance issue which was effecting the server and all my websites, so I had to remove this one from use until sorted. Cheers, Krispy.

WRITERS - If you are a budding writer or established author who is looking to reach an appreciative audience, please register (Why register?) and submit your stories (and now poems) for publication. Being a totally 'not for profit' website, we cannot unfortunately, pay you, but rather showcase your stories to a large number of people with little effort on your behalf.

Resource for writers to publish stories

Feel confident when submitting.
All story submissions remain the copyright of the authors - we are not here to make money from your submissions! This site is a resource for you to showcase your writing without having to have the technical know-how yourself. Unfortunately I cannot pay money for your stories, as I receive no funding or payment. Once a story is in our database, you are able to edit it online at any time, just by logging in and using your special members homepage. We will only display your username against stories, no e-mail address will be revealed (to cut down on any chance of spam). There is now a new 'author profile' page you may complete, but what you choose to reveal is completely up to you! We have a published legal Privacy Policy.
How do you receive feedback?
We have put a feedback system into the site, where readers may send you (hopefully) constructive criticism, or (even more hopefully), generous praise. This system hides your e-mail address to keep the feedback 'secure'. It does seem the erotic stories do get more feedback than other genres, but not always!
Submit and read the stories for free.
This site isn't here to make big money (or in fact, ANY money!), it's mostly a labour of love (of fiction itself, and me using my technical skills to help others). So we won't charge you a membership fee, or anything to read as many stories as you wish.

Who runs this story website?

All run by Krispy in his spare time
This site was conceived, designed, coded, and glued together by Kristian 'Krispy' Brown; kristianbrown.co.uk, in my spare time. My normal job is a senior systems developer (Oracle and Java), but I have been creating websites for the last 18 years. The are all on my own hosted webserver. I do this for fun, and sharing a love of books, reading, imagination, and helping people with my technical know how.

Story submission policy

We accept short story submissions in many categories including a huge erotic story section! If you feel your story should be in a fiction category we do not have, please suggest one, and if I agree, I will create that category for you.

We do accept stories of an adult and nature (including erotic stories), but reserve the right to edit or reject submissions that we feel breaks the boundaries of taste we will accept. This is completely my discretion, but note we will refuse stories that are of an illegal or over violent sexual nature (illegal adult themes such as drug taking ARE acceptable though). We do ask that no-one under 16 enter or read stories in the 'adult' or 'erotic stories' categories of the site. Important note: We cannot be held responsible if underage or easily shockable readers read or are upset by any of the stories within this site. By clicking on any of the story links within this website, you agree not to hold the owners responsible for any upset, shock, or negative effects. The erotic story section contains themes such as "hot wife", "BSDM", "Cuckold", "Domination and submission", as well as more "straight" erotica.
