Feature in Omnia Vanitas Review

One of the short stories from Trees Ex Libris has been featured in the well-respected Omnia Vanitas Review.

The Omnia Vanitas Review originated as a journal of literary erotica and has now blossomed into a press, publisher, and producer of literary erotica.

Commenting on Trees Ex Libris Catherine Borders, Executive Editor of Omnia Vanitas Review, wrote:

I love the concept behind this collection: the originality, the ebullient energy. As you can imagine as a publisher of erotica a great deal of our submissions are derivative, misogynistic (sigh…), and well, boring as a result. I was very happy to come across such an original piece, and think your work would be a nice to fit for our oeuvre. 

The story featured is Cedar: about a cherished cedar swing which brings surprising pleasure to a girl.

Trees: Ex Libris

Thanks to Erotic Fix for featuring Trees Ex Libris on their excellent website.

In the far corner of our backyard was a vast spreading cedar tree. Its branches spanned the full width of our meagre strip of scuffed turf and beyond, reaching across both adjacent yards and into the properties behind.

We had no plastic toys outside our house, just sturdy wooden wonders made from cedar. Their original beautiful orange tone had weathered to gold, evaporating in wafts of earthy vanilla during warm summer evenings. All the lumber had come from a massive branch removed a few years earlier from the tree, and later lovingly crafted by Pa.

He made a heavy swing seat for me, fashioned from the seasoned cedar, my name carved along its front. He attached it high in the tree’s canopy using thick soft rope, giving it a deep and long parabola. I could swing so high that at its apsis I could see into many other backyards, down…

Author interview with Jovis Glans

We caught up with our first author Jovis Glans, whose book Trees Ex Libris is released October 1st.

EEP
Jovis, in your note at the back of the book you describe how you came to write about tree sex. It seems an unlikely coming together (excuse the pun).

Author
Sure, I get that. This is what I wrote:

Ten years ago I stood in front of a group of students in Pennsylvania, following the delivery of a guest lecture, answering polite questions about my work as a tree professional. A slender hand, belonging to a pretty redhead, rose from the back row of the hall. “How can you make a living writing about nature — I heard there’s no money in books?”

“You’re dead right!” I replied, “I’ve always had a full-time job, and I simply treat writing as a hobby.”

Perhaps it was the youthful audience or more likely my attraction to redheads — looking back I can’t be sure — but without really thinking I added, “I suppose the only best seller I could ever hope to write would be one about tree sex!” The audience laughed and my muse blushed, yet I had unwittingly sown a seed in my own mind.

EEP
You also mention that you’ve been frustrated by the range of erotic writing out there. Can you tell us more?

Author
As a relatively intelligent adult with a thirst for good fiction and good erotica, I’ve not found a great deal of writing that caters for my tastes. So much is either on the ‘trash’ side, with little more to it than thrusting and throbbing, or is too much on the romance side. I like hard erotica that turns me on, interwoven with a plot that challenges, excites, amuses and captures my imagination.

EEP
So who are your favorite erotic fiction authors?

Author
Across a wide timeline really, from Anaïs Nin’s Delta of Venus and Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita, to John Cleland’s Fanny Hill, and even as far back as the bawdy The Miller’s Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer.

None of them featured our environment as a central theme.

EEP
Yeah, but is that really so surprising? I mean, what’s the connection between sex and trees?

Author
There’s something elemental about being naked or nude outdoors, and masturbating or having sex in nature. The touch of soil, bark, rock or even sand on parts of your skin where you don’t often feel it. There’s nothing like the warm glow of the sun or a tickle of wind on parts of your body usually hidden away. Think about it – sex in tune with nature is the most natural thing.

EEP
So what’s your hope for this book?

Author
I want to connect with readers who share my passion for the environment and erotica, for trees and sex, and I hope they enjoy reading the book as much as I did writing it.

I’ve got an idea for a follow-up that could feature stories submitted by readers – I’ve long been inspired by Nancy Friday’s My Secret Garden. I imagine a book featuring environmental erotica by contributors of all genders (unlike Nancy’s) and sexual preferences. After all, fact is often more exciting than fiction isn’t it?

EEP
That’s why we’ve have created a submission page at EEP, so maybe you’ll hit gold (or is that green!).

Thanks for talking to us today Jovis. And good luck with the book!

Woodlander

Imagine my surprise — as I hung upside down from my favourite branch, cock in hand, eyes closed tight in pre-cum ecstasy — to hear the fall of nearby footsteps. I froze, realising my exposure was so extreme there was nothing I could do to cover my embarrassing perversion.

I opened my eyes to find them level with an exposed and fully-erect cock. Without a word being said by its owner, the organ approached me and an orphaned hand guided it into my mouth. The shock of my first experience of a cock in my mouth was soon countered by the warmth of the stranger’s mouth around my own penis. Our vertical ’69’ was mind-blowing.

Bodging

Several designs — and orgasms — later Mary had mastered her design: a length of 7 1/2″, narrow at the neck, widening in its middle to a double knot, and with a rounded ball at its tip. Ash was good but the smoothness and weight of walnut more pleasing still.

Mary’s productivity and satisfaction grew in parallel. Each wooden wand was lovingly crafted while she ‘tested’ the previous model as she treddled. When two shelves of the garage were creaking under a quiver of wooden phallic wonders, her next inspiring idea came to her. Worrying about how she could keep so many creations hidden from the eyes of her two ‘children’ — if they ever came to visit — prompted her to locate Basic Website Design under the Information Technology section, and borrow a copy to take home to study.

Olive Grove

We walked through a beautiful landscape of hills and vineyards, climbing by the evening to a scrubby ridge, dotted here and there with ancient olive trees. Far below the lights in an old farmhouse came on one-by-one, and I watched a tiny figure gathering washing from its terrace. It was a picture-postcard landscape of vineyards, olive trees and incense cedars, lit with glorious evening color. I gazed across the fertile valley watching the setting sun while bound and draped across a low branch; my ass exposed to the east and my tits swinging freely to the west.

I’d just emptied my bladder — knowing JB enjoyed how it sprayed backwards while bound in this crouched position — when I heard a footfall behind. Expecting JB, or more precisely the nudge of his cock, I squealed as an eager tongue lapped at my sodden swollen lips. Yet something was wrong.
