I know things have been quiet around here for the past month. December is always hectic, but this year I outdid myself. I was determined to get a second Krampus book out. I had the idea all plotted out and started from much earlier this year and it was so fun that I really didn’t want to wait.
But Lord Krampus turned out longer than expected and it cut the turnaround time down between books. I had to put on my running shoes and increase my work hours to catch up– which is always hard at this time of year because I do a lot of holiday prep too.
Whew! So, now that I have a minute to breathe, I have lots of exciting news to share today.
I busted my butt this week to get some goodies ready for you.
First! The Krampus Collective Box set is now live, in KU, AND in paperback. So, for you readers who have been asking for the first three books in paperback… this is for you. Tell me that cover isn’t delicious.
Each story is unique. Every book stands alone.
Includes: Daddy Krampus
She’s a thief in desperate need of a strict hand. He’s the embodiment of punishment looking for a mate. They have a year to find what they need … in each other.
He’s the spirit of punishment personified and he’s looking for his mate. She’s a shallow brat with dreams of influencer fame. Can they learn to love each other in just one year?
They aren’t just a pair of hot, dominant men – They are the immortal embodiment of punishment packed into two sexy bodies. When they claim her as their mate, she’ll learn the price of her mistakes one painful punishment at a time.
Next! Lord Krampus Book Four of the Krampus Collective is now live and in KU!
Lord Krampus has never been anyone’s hero… until now.
The moment he sees her, he knows Beatrice is the one.
Her innocence should repel him. Instead, it draws him in. But just because he rescued her, doesn’t mean he’s allowed to keep her. She’s just not bad enough, not naughty enough to feed his hungers.
After a stolen week of dark pleasures, he’s forced to return her, leaving Tris with a choice: spend the year moving on with her mortal life or becoming the naughty girl her Krampus needs.
I’m planning a sale.
I will probably put the first three books on sale in early December. That way the people who have one or two of them can just pick up the singles they need to complete, instead of doing the box set. (Unless you want the box set anyway because that cover is FIRE.)
The first three books will not be available in paperback separately, so if you want the paperback, you’ll need to get the box set for that.
I think that’s all the exciting news for now. I’ll check back in soon and I hope to get at least one serious article up in December.
As usual when I hit crunch time on a book, I tend to get quieter everywhere else. It’s hard, when you’re pouring all of that time and focus into a project, to pull out long enough to handle other things.
But I ducked out of my cave for long enough to remember that I hadn’t yet shared anything about this book with you! So here I am with a pretty cover to show you, and a teaser.
The Krampus Collective books were meant to be shorter reads. I planned to do two per Christmas season specifically because they were going to be much shorter than my usual books– whoops.
The reality is… that hasn’t happened. While the first one was the length I had planned, since then the books have gotten longer and longer. The current book, Lord Krampus, will be the longest one so far.
I was going through my spanking implement bin this week and I was thinking about how many of those toys I’ve had since way back in the beginning. Many of them were handmade, or normal house items we appropriated, and I kept them because of fond memories.
I still also have the first real implements I bought or were gifted to me. With care, many of these things will last a lifetime—though we’ve broken our share of paddles and had leather fall apart at times.
We have a lot of toys because we like a variety of sensation. Each toy gives you a completely different result, so when picking one you really need to think about what effect you want. If you’re new you might not know what you like yet, and that’s okay. You have plenty of time to explore and learn.
You’re probably getting tired of the aftercare posts. Ironically the more I write about a topic, the more questions I hear about it. Since a lot of my posts are guided by questions I get… sometimes we ended up with multiple posts about a single topic in a short time. Sorry about that!
Because I’ve done several aftercare posts in the past couple of months, I’ve spent a lot of time comparing how fiction presents aftercare and how it tends to happen in real life, which can be quite different.
The specific question this time was, “We never used to see aftercare mentioned in books, but now we see it constantly. Is it a new concept?”
