Welcome to Anastasia’s Parlor
Welcome readers, writers, and lovers of taboo romance and taboo erotica. I’m Anastasia Komarova, taboo author and book reviewer.
When your erotic fiction delves deeper into the realm of taboos, it can be difficult not only to find a place to sell your book, but even just to find someone brave enough to read it!
If you’ve never written or tried publishing a work or taboo fiction, you may not realize how difficult it is to sell taboo romance and erotica. With the exception of a few mainstream sites, most taboo stories are forced underground and as such, rarely see the light of day.
I Know the Struggle
As an author of a taboo romance series, I know the struggle. That’s why I’m so passionate about helping other indie authors get their books into the spotlight. It’s no easy feat, but I’m up for the task!
I created Anastasia’s Parlor just for taboo romance and taboo erotica reviews, with the occasional dark fantasy (preferably taboo fantasy) thrown in. It might take me a few months to get my traffic up, and thus get eyes on these delicious taboo stories, but I’m committed!
If you’d like to help these taboo authors, please share the reviews, and consider buying their books and stories. I’ve done my best to link to their book listings to make it easier to find them
Send Me Your Taboo Stories
If you’ve got a taboo story you’d like me to read and review, I’d be honored. Feel free to send your story to me directly, at [email protected]
If your story is good, I’m happy to post additional reviews for your book on any major sites you’ve managed to keep your book on thus far, like Amazon, Smashwords, and the like. If your book is on Goodreads, I can post a review for your there as well. And of course, I post all of my reviews on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook.
If your story is… less than stellar, I’ll still post the book review on Anastasia’s Parlor and my social media accounts, but I’ll do you the favor of not posting a review on the big sites. I sincerely want to help. I’m not out do damage anyone’s reputation.
I’m an honest book reviewer. I’ve got my own good name on the line, so I’ll be giving you a fair review. If I have any critiques, I’ll try to offer them kindly.
I Don’t Charge for Reviews
If you know anything about sales and marketing, you understand the value of book reviews and getting backlinks to your author and book websites. People pay a lot of money for a good book review. I don’t charge for book reviews. I know I’m a rare find, but I’m a genuinely nice person.
Submit Your Taboo Book or Story

My Reading List is Long – Please Be Patient with Me
Since I started this blog a few months ago, my reading list has become quite extensive. I have no idea when I’ll actually get a chance to read your book, but I will be sure to notify you as soon as your review is published.
Taboo Erotica or Romance Only
Please don’t send me any generic romance or erotica novels. There are plenty of outlets for these traditional works of fiction. In other words, if you’re not secretly worried your book might get banned by Amazon or one of the other major retailers, it’s probably not taboo.
Where to Publish Taboo Erotica and Romance
If you’ve managed to self-publish your taboo erotica or taboo romance on one of the major sites, congratulations!
If your taboo ebook hasn’t been flagged or banned for content that goes against the platform’s guidelines, a very big second congratulations!
If at some point your book gets banned, you can sell your taboo ebooks in Black Lotus Books‘ online bookstore.
Black Lotus Books is a traditional book publisher geared solely toward taboo romance, taboo erotica, and dark fantasy books. Taboo stories of all sizes are welcome.
