“Extremely amazing and talented writer. I am definitely a huge fan, which inspired my instrumental piece called ‘Additions to Anger with Stifff Kitties!’” Dianne Meinke, singer/songwriter

Since the release of her debut book, “Victorian Days and Punk Rock Nights,” Ladyaslan has gained a strong following of kindred spirits or “baby bats” as she fondly calls them. In her latest book, “Lipstick and Absinthe” (published by Xlibris), she once again offers a window into her world, a world suffused in darkness and decadence.

“Lipstick and Absinthe” is a collection of original gothic poetry, short stories and horror erotica. Ladyaslan writes in her signature moody, dark and irresistible flair, pulling readers deep into her realm. Like a moth to a flame, they will be drawn to a world that teeters delicately on the cusp of peril and pleasure, danger and desire.

“My book is not your typical indie read,” the author says. “It was made with blood, sweat and tears. It is the scenic route to what gothic poetry used to be.”

Ladyaslan has received praised from notable personalities. Here are some reviews of her writing style and work:

“Ladyaslan strikes a chord with depth and darkness in this book. I have it on my coffee table, and my guests inevitably pick it up and start reading. The book has initiated some of the most interesting conversations. Also a great bedtime read.” - Jeff Scheel, lead singer of Gravity Kills

“Extremely amazing and talented writer. I am definitely a huge fan, which inspired my instrumental piece called ‘Additions to Anger with Stifff Kitties!’” Dianne Meinke, singer/songwriter
