Silk Threads

If you’ve heard any of the three of us [Midori, Laura Antoniou, Cecilia Tan] talk about collaborating on a “secret project”… this is it!

SILK THREADS is a book we wrote together we self-published via Kickstarter. Although the campaign is over, you can still pre-order the book (ebook or physical book) until December:


What Is Silk Threads?

Silk Threads is a book of erotica and erotic romance which contains three interrelated novellas of fantastical Japan–historical past, magical present, cyberpunk future–by three master creators. It’s also our labor of love. Laura Antoniou writes in the feudal warrior past, Midori in the fabulist magical present, and Cecilia Tan in the cyberpunk future. All three of us, of course, are known for our writing on BDSM and sexuality, so a common thread of bondage as well as magic weaves through all three stories.

Focusing on women’s erotic power and desires, each story features individual quests for love, intimacy and the discovery of far-reaching potential within the central protagonists. From the legendary creatures of traditional Japanese fables to an atomic age embodiment of existential anxiety and into a cultural paradigm shift, magical silk weaves each generational story into an exploration of romantic cravings.

You’re self-publishing it?

We danced the dance with some of the biggest romance and erotica publishers in existence, but in the end we decided we’d do a better job of staying true to the book and to our readers if we did it ourselves. So we chose to launch the book through Kickstarter. 576 backers pledged over $30,000 to the project!

How can I help?

The best thing you can do, now that the Kickstarter is over, is spread the word about this fabulous book! We have no publicist, no media help, and most Internet advertisers will not even allow an erotic book to be advertised. So literally the only way to get the word out is through word of mouth. This book is for anyone who likes the following:

  • fantasy
  • science fiction
  • erotica
  • romance
  • Japan
  • samurai
  • cyberpunk
  • rope bondage
  • good fiction
