Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — Cleis Press announces two of the leading lights in erotica and sexuality on the E-Treats debut list for January 2013, Rachel Kramer Bussel and Tristan Taormino. Associate Publisher Knight says, "If we published every great idea our authors brought to us we would publish 1000 books a year. Since we're not quite there yet, we created E-Treats. It is a way to expand our offering and take even more risks than we already do."

These stories can serve as their own kind of adult toy to inspire readers to break out their favorite toys, or perhaps discover a new one. No one can ever have too many toys, or have too much fun with them!
