Free books to get you through things!

Wow,  we really are on one of the darker timelines, aren’t we? The world is kind of scary right now, and while some of us are used to being inside all the time (*coughAuthorsCough*) it’s a big life change for a lot of people. And the boredom is setting in!

Many companies are adding on to streaming, expanding services, trying to keep morale up and authors are doing the same. Yay! So, I thought I would pass on some of the free stuff I’ve seen from authors.

I should point out that a lot of authors in all genres are doing this  and there are whole groups on Facebook being set up to facilitate these giveaways so you might want to check these out:
Stay home and read: a quarantine party

Quarantine Relief Books From Authors to Readers

Now, for those authors in my own genre–you know what I mean, the kinky, spanky, D/s type books. There’s nothing like some kinky smut to keep you entertained during enforced lock down. So grab a book, curl up somewhere comfy, and prepare to ride it out. (Um… so to speak.)

Here are some free books available right now:

*Golden Angel:
Sassy Submissive
Stronghold – where the friendships are as important as the delightfully filthy sex.

Birching His Bride
Reluctantly wedded, passionately bedded, and spanked till she’s red!

*Clairissa SinClair

Nesting Instinct: Book I-Vivienne’s Vamp

*Elizabeth Safleur

Lucky (Elite Doms of Washington Book Four)

*Simone Leigh
Mastering The Virgin

Renee Rose and Lee Savino
8 Free badboy alpha shifter books

I will update this post if I find more along the way, but some of the other free books I’ve seen are available only for a day or two, so I highly suggest you join the book groups I posted above to avoid missing out.  Most books won’t be free for long so grab them while you can.

And I’d like to remind you to PLEASE leave reviews. I can’t overstress how important reviews are for an author. It doesn’t matter if the book has been out a while either. I find on my books a lot of people leave reviews in the first month and then people figure it no longer matters and stop leaving them.

It’s still important even when a book is no longer a new release and it would be a great way to thank these authors who are giving up months of their work for free. Who knows, you might find a new favorite author!

Stay safe  and keep healthy everyone!

Taken By the Renegade –coming soon!

I’m pleased to announce that after many delays and contract negotiations I have finally signed the contract for Taken By the Renegade; the second book in the Rise of the Sadecs series! This is the series that’s coming out under my alter-ego Sadie Marks and if you haven’t read the first one you really should check it out here: Surrendering to Her General

I don’t yet have even a tentative release date for the sequel, but I’m hoping really hard for late April or early May.  It shouldn’t be long after that anyway.

I hope the readers enjoy it as much as the first one. I really feel bad about the long delay between the books but there were unavoidable complications. I have already started on the third book though so hopefully you won’t have to wait as long next time.

I did want to leave you with this gentle reminder: if you want to support authors whose content you enjoy, the best way to do that is to leave reviews on their books (And buy them too, of course) because reviews help push their books up in Amazon’s algorithms so more people can see them.

I’ve been asked a few times if I have a tipjar/Ko-fi/Patreon set up and no, I don’t.  I’m considering it for the future because I know there are people who would like to support my writing but don’t read e-books, don’t read fiction, or don’t have time to read books in general but I have to look into the mechanics of it.

Have a great week, everyone!

Making Rules With Your Submissive

A Submissive's Rules

I’ve been writing a lot about rules lately, so this article felt like it was long overdue. What I’d like you to do is read the title and put an emphasis on with. Making rules /with/ your submissive. What I see too often, both in fiction and in real life, is that the Dom simply hands down a list of rules that they think are in the best interests of the submissive, without actually discussing it with them.

Dealing With Punishment Issues–Part two of ‘Letting Punishments Go Can Be Unhelpful’

Letting punishments go can be bad for your D/s relationship, but sometimes you might need to work around issues that pop up. You might want to read part one first : Letting Punishments Go Can be Unhelpful 

So what if the Dom is trying to let something slide but the submissive keeps doing it? Or they come right out and say they feel bad about something they’ve done, but the Dom doesn’t want to punish for it? I often hear subs complaining about Doms not being consistent with the punishments. Making threats but not following through.
