Ms. Lister can write some kinky sex like nobody’s business-and the fetish party sequence still makes my pupils dilate just thinking about it, but there is also depth and emotionality that moved me.

Sweet mercy! One of the hottest books I’ve read in awhile.

As for the BDSM scenes, I find them very well written and believable and just a pleasure to read.

Polyamory done right.

Pup Scout’s Email to the NLA-International nominating Beyond the Edge for the 2012 Pauline Réage Novel Award for which it received an Honorable Mention:

Hello NLA International,

 My name is …, but I am better known within my local community as Scout, Ottawa Pup 2013.

 In the past year, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a local author who, at the time, was in the process of writing a male on male erotic novel. She showed a distinct interest in the local community, seeking the help of various members of the Ottawa leather family as well as the local pup group to help her understand the mindsets, the interests and the enjoyment we get from what we do as a family. I’ve seen this magnificent (and in all honestly spectacularly pretty) woman pet leather pups and attend fisting seminars with a notepad in hand, truly eager to learn and understand what it means to be kinky so she could translate those ideas into her latest work. 

To cut to the chase, it would be an immense pleasure to nominate Elizabeth Lister’s book; Beyond the Edge, an amazing erotic novel with our very own Mr. Michael Tattersall, Mr Leather Ottawa 2010, adorning the cover: 

I’ve asked her permission to include in this e-mail a PDF copy of her book. To read more about Liz’s experience within our community, feel free to visit her Blog:

 Thank you for taking the time to read this,
