Fiction Is Not A How-To Manual

In full disclaimer I didn’t make this meme. Most of the things I post on this blog, are obviously things I’ve made or own, but this is just something I found floating around Facebook. I strongly agree with it, so I wanted to discuss it today.

The meme says “If your moral code is strong enough that you are able to consume media with themes of cannibalism critically, but know it is bad to do so in real life, then that same logic can be applied to other themes/nsfw depictions in fiction. Just say it isn’t your thing and go.”

‘Subs Have All the Power’ is Wrong and We Should Stop Using It

It feels like we haven’t had a controversial topic in a while, but this one has been on my list for a couple of years. I’m going to say this will probably only sound controversial until you read what I have to say and think about it for a minute.

I’m going to explain why I absolutely detest the phrase ‘The subs have all the power in a D/s relationship.’ So, sit back and buckle up because this is going to be a ride.

In the days when kink was still a hush-hush ‘don’t let the neighbors know kind of thing’, you know, before it got kicked into mainstream by 50Shades, this phrase was used as the default to explain why BDSM was not abuse. It couldn’t possibly be abuse because subs have alllll the power.

How do you abuse someone who is actually sneakily, despite what it looks like, the real boss? You can’t, of course.

Goose Daddy Is Done!

As some of you may know, I’ve been working on a story for the Dirty Daddies Spring Anthology. I hadn’t expected to be invited to participate again so soon, since they like to bring in new blood with each book, but apparently, they thought this theme was in my wheelhouse.

And I admit I was excited. Since this one is supposed to be filled with humor my first thought was to go with my goose shifter. I absolutely intend to eventually do a full goose shifter book, maybe a series, but so far, I haven’t had the chance.

I did start with a historical anthology last year where I introduced the Brood family back in the 1700’s and then segued to the 1800’s with a trio of Brood brothers and their mail order bride. I had a lot of fun with it, and I’d love to go back and expand on that someday, but historical didn’t feel right for this.

So now we’re meeting the modern descendent of the family: Gavin Brood and I’m excited to see what people think of him and the woman he falls for, Gabrielle Daly.

Now, during the plotting of this it got a little off the rails with some hysterical scenes, which I still want to do! But I was encouraged to hold back somewhat. That’s okay though, because someday when I flesh this story out, I have a lot of wickedly amusing ideas to incorporate.

For now, we have a mostly light-hearted story with a decent amount of humor and the beginnings of a beautiful romance between two kindred souls and I’m happy with that.

Here’s a little teaser….
