Erotica by the Fire

Rita Goldring, a well-known erotic fiction writer, has been struck down with writer’s block right as the deadline for the final novel of her sexy trilogy approaches.

Her first two books in the series, Erotica by the Washing Machine and Erotica in the Air, were published to critical acclaim and sold millions of copies worldwide.

However, the pressure to write a novel of equal commendation is proving too much, and Rita hasn’t written a word in two months. 

In an effort to get the creative juices flowing, her publisher, Chuck Manning, has sent Rita away to a country manor that is definitely not haunted for the weekend.

That night, Rita lights the fire and settles down with her pen with the feathers on the end and her notebook, ready to be inspired. 

But the ghosts of Deflower Manor have other plans for Rita.

Created by Emmy winner Shoshana McCallum (INSiDE, West Side, Head High) with Donna Brookbanks (Snort, 7 Days, The Project) and Andrew Munro (Hillary, Bollocks, Bluebird), and featuring a rotating cast of celebrity ghouls, Erotica by the Fire is one part Drunk History, one part My Dad Wrote A Porno.

Get ready to feel sexy and haunted.
