Mark Cisper is primarily a poet. Though he has dabbled in writing novels, he considers himself a poet first and always. As he progresses through the publishing arena you will see more and more books of poetry. However, in 2013, he revisited a novel idea he abandoned in 2011. That novel is his first steps into the publishing world; with a rather dark and erotic adult romance called The Princess Slave: Mei's Song which is published through www.lulu.com.
The Princess Slave: Mei's Song
Mei Song is an Asian Princess though only through the eyes of her lover John Hunter. Mei and John are introduced on her 18th birthday by her owner Howard Stephans; Mei is a sex slave whose sole purpose is to submit to the sexual desires and deviations of those men and women her Master allows to use her.
John came into her life but unlike all the others he saw her as a special princess and made it his mission to make her see that she is more than simply a sex slave. This is a three year journey in which Mei evolves from simply a submissive slave to learning about freedom and independence through her own desires through various mediums of artistic endeavors with the guidance of John.
However, both Mei and John must submit to various sexual perversities at the hands of not only Howard Stephans, but others along the way to get to the absolute freedom in which Mei desires.
Wisdom Still Burns Deep
This volume of poetry is selected poems from the works of Mark Cisper. The selections are of his smaller pieces and those that that are his very best as well as his personal favorites; at least in his very own humble opinion.
Listed below are the titles of his 13 books of poetry which are yet to be published that these 50 individual poems included in this volume were selected from:
When Dreams Are Murdered; From the Ashes of a Murdered Dream; The Journey of the Soul; The Insane Poet; The Procession of Pain, The Sadness of the Perpetual Smile; Angel Song; The Insane Poet Strikes Again; With a Single Cry; Silent Watcher; Been Made to Suffer; Anticipation's Anticlimax; and Like an Ancient Temple.
The time span in which these pieces were written is from 1991 to 2003.
The Naked Pleasures of...
The Naked Pleasures of… is a collection of twelve erotic short stories and one poem. Originally, they were written in the form of poetry when The Insane Poet and The Procession of Pain was being written (these titles will be released in 2015).
The author decided that these stories and poem would be better suited to a book of their own. Thus, The Naked Pleasures of… was created by converting them into a closer resemblance of prose; though, still using some poetic license to give a different appearance then the standard prose writing.
When Dreams Are Murdered
Just like every story there must be a beginning. The same is true with poetry. “When Dreams Are Murdered”, in essence, is the Genesis of the works of poetry by Mark Cisper. This is to say, it is not the true beginning except for the first six poems; salvaged from other sources after the original 91 pieces he wrote in 1991/92 while still in high school were lost.
The time span in which these pieces were written is from 1991 to May 1993. This you will see is true for the author has included a Chronology at the end of the book; something he believes has never been done before in literature. This Chronology will demonstrate to you he exact date in which a piece was written; and at times will show several were written in a day as well as the gaps in time between pieces. One last note on the Chronology: you will see exactly when he began keeping track of dates.
Let’s begin the journey of the life and works of the Word Art of the Poet by the name of Mark Cisper.
From the Ashes of a Murdered Dream
From the Ashes of a Murdered Dream continues the poetry of Mark Cisper where When Dreams Are Murdered left off. As with the previous volume you will find at the end of the book a Chronology which will demonstrate the frequency as well as lulls in the authors writing.
The Journey of the Soul
Tales from Inside The Lair
Tales from Inside The Lair, is composed of 17 short stories of the activities of the slaves owned by Howard Stephens. This group of stories is a counterpart series to the novel, The Princess Slave: Mei’s Song. If you can imagine a novel being a movie; then imagine the short story as a Polaroid, or simply one little moment captured in a much bigger story.
Many of the stories will include characters which were featured prominently within The Princess Slave. Some of these characters are Najeeba, Peyonee, Jaquel, and Tatyana; just to name a few. Other supporting characters, of a lesser degree, from The Princess Slave will be included. Some of those characters are Hitomi, Araceli, and Deshawn. Finally, there are stories with characters which were not included in The Princess Slave but specifically created for inclusion in this book. Some of those characters are Linh, Cala, and Alessia. Two characters which will be in just about every story are Master Howard and Mistress Natalia. Mei Song and John Hunter may make an appearance.
One must keep in mind that the patrons of The Lair as well as Master Howard and Mistress Natalia are people with money and power; those who believe they are above the law and can get away with anything they please. Some of these kind of powerful people include the President of the United States, a Cardinal for the Catholic Church, the son of Japan’s Emperor, and a Police Chief; just to name a few. When all is said and done, the stories in this book explore the darkness, as well as the tenderness, of those who put themselves above the law because of their positions of power and their money at the cost of the lives of sex slaves….

When Marina and Federico got married everything seemed to be perfect. She had found a very loving and compassionate man that she desired to live her life with until she was old and grey. Marina was overjoyed when her husband introduced four wonderful, beautiful women to be house servants to assist her in the house while she could concentrate on her writing and art as well as not being alone while Federico was working.
However, unknown to Marina, these four women had come from the town brothel in which Federico owned. Also, unknown to Marina, these four women which would become her dear and most trusted friends were also charged with providing her husband the services of their bodies whenever he chose to indulge in them; while at the same time having an affair, on a daily basis, with his secretary.
It was not until returning a damaged man after severe amnesia from the First World War that Federico brought his sexual depravities into his bed of matrimony. Though conflicted, Marina confronted him to have him seek help and stop; this only led to Marina’s, the servants, and his pregnant mistress to be brutally put to death at Federico’s hands….
