The Academy: Tales of the Marketplace continues the brilliant saga of resolute slaves and exacting owners begun in previous volumes (The Marketplace, The Slave, The Trainer). A dynamic culture of honor and duty embracing absolute servitude is the basis for the clandestine society known as The Marketplace. Sensuality, intelligence, and passion meld into exquisite eroticism and scenes of blazing sexuality and sexual diversity. The Marketplace is full of all kinds of slaves and trainers, of all genders and sexual tastes. In "The Academy" we follow Chris Parker and his trainee, Michael LaGuardia, to Japan, where a conclave of trainers is taking place. While the trainers swap cautionary tales and debate protocol, moves are being made that may change the Marketplace, and Chris's place in it, forever. This complete, full-length novel is a rich tapestry of sexuality and emotion, augmented by the inclusion of short stories by guest authors Karen Taylor, Cecilia Tan, Michael Hernandez, david stein, and Christian Muncy. This print-on-demand paperback brings back into print the best-selling book formerly published by Mystic Rose books. Under Circlet Press's "Luster Editions" imprint, all the books in the series are now available to bookstores everywhere, and a brand new sequel, The Inheritor.
Laura Antoniou is the author of the well known Marketplace series of erotic novels. The Marketplace series describes "an elite and secretive world organization,dedicated to the auctioning and overseeing of the world's finest lifestyle slaves... a world so vivid in sequel after sequel, it takes on a reality of its own, one that's visually hard to let go of once the reader has put down the book." (Libido Magazine). Laura is finishing book Six in the series, "The Inheritor," which will be published in 2015. She has also published a series of short stories based in the Marketplace, entitled "Scenes From The Marketplace," and edited a fan fiction collection, entitled "No Safewords."

In addition to the Marketplace series, Laura is the author of "The Killer Wore Leather," a comedy murder mystery that takes place at a BDSM convention. The book is nominated for the 2013 Lambda Literary Award, and won the 2013 Rainbow Book Awards.

Laura also edited the groundbreaking "Leatherwomen" anthologies, and several other collections of fiction and non-fiction. She will be editing the upcoming "Best Lesbian Erotica," to be published in late 2014. Her work has been translated into Spanish, German, Hebrew, Japanese and Korean.
