Zetta Brown’s red hot L-L Publications has a line of unorthodox commercial books. Based in Scotland, L-L Publications and its sister imprint, Logical-Lust, have made profitable inroads across the European continent, and now it has America in its sights. Several of its books have garnered acclaim and critical praise. The following interview with Robert Fleming and Zetta Brown covered many subjects such as censorship, self-publishing, the profit-loss obsession of mainstream publishing, erotica, sex, the craft of writing, and the difference between European vs. American sensibilities.
