We’re going to be publishing some of the freshest, bravest, and most inventive new names in erotic lit. If you like your reads to be hot, compelling and edgy, stay tuned for our official launch.
When it comes to hot stories, there are no boundaries at Go Deeper. Be it knives or roses, if it’s sexy, we dig it—in fact, we’re blasting a hole in the notion of what “erotica” is. For us, true erotica contains deep characters with deep desires and writing that starts fires with words. We’ll turn on your brain as much as we tickle your brawn, so prepare to be erotically engrossed.
Are we proud of sex? Yes. In fact, if you think sex can be beautiful, terrifying, brutal, liberating, hellish, transformative, or just plain gorgeous, you’re what we’re all about.
Who We Are
Lana Fox became a sex writer when she realized she couldn’t shut up about the subject. Her erotica, which has been described as “so delicious, vivid, debauched and ripe it could easily be adapted to film…” (Violet Blue) and “full of whoa and awesome…” (Dee Carney) appears in over a dozen anthologies by publishers such as Harlequin and Cleis. She has also worked as a literary magazine editor, under a different name. In fact, on finalist panels, she had a habit of announcing, “Yes, but where’s the smooching?” Debauched as she is, Lana believes in the political and emotional importance of sex, and these passions led her to becoming an online sex columnist at both Boston Magazine and the Nervous Breakdown. She is also a contributing blogger, and avid vibrator purchaser, at Good Vibrations. Lana admits that she fainted in a most unattractive manner, drool included, when Susie Bright called her blog “addictive” on air. She has also managed to snag a wonderful agent at the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency, who is currently representing her new self-help book project. Find Lana online at her sex blog Lanafox.com and her spirituality blog, Follow the Signs Like Alice.
Angela Tavares It was a long time ago, indeed, that Angela Tavares wrote smutty short stories on lined paper with pen for friends in high school. Little did she know she’d find Lana Fox, and then Go Deeper, and now look at her. With endless passion for women’s soccer, and with palms made sweaty by nearly every member of a certain Mannschaft that is not Team USA, Tavares has written for goal.com and was quoted in the Atlantic Monthly on this very topic. But, contrary to popular beliefs, “punk” can meet “jock,” and so she founded Agitprop! Records, a Boston-based queer punk and hip hop record label, back in the day. Her short fiction has been published on 30pov.com and in the anthology “Userlands: New Fiction Writers from the Blogging Undergound,” which was edited by Dennis Cooper and published by Akashic. She’s now writing a novel, just like everyone else you know.
