Taken by a Renegade is finished!

I’m so excited to finally have it completed and right on schedule. I still wish I’d started it sooner, but it feels great to be able to type ‘The End.’ on my 8th books. I really think people are going to enjoy it and as far as steam it’s got some scenes that are just smokin’!

Of course now I have to dive back in for edits, tightening, and prepping it to submit but I’m hoping to breeze through that and submit it before the end of the month. Maybe, if we’re lucky, we can look at a February release. Woohoo!

Taken by the Renegade teaser and some updates.

I know updates have been slow lately, sorry about that! I have a number of blog posts I’m working on. The next post will probably be the one on how to make your own silent loop-spanking toy, aka a DIY version of the infamous Loopy Johnny. I’ve already started it and bought supplies so I could take some pictures. I just need to pull it together.

But my focus has primarily been on finishing the sequel to Surrendering to Her General.  After almost 6 months since it’s release it’s still doing well on Amazon, and is my best selling book so far by quite a lot, so that’s put a bit of pressure on me. Since I slipped in another book before starting the sequel I am months past where I wanted to be and when I wanted to release it. Whoops.

In this genre there is a need to get the sequels out promptly or they don’t sell as well, hence my determination to finish this one by the end of the month. And I’m almost there! A few thousand words from the end and I just need to pull it all together and wrap things up!

So I thought I’d offer you a little teaser from the current writing. This book in some ways is going to be darker than the first, but I think people will really like it. Before I show you the teaser though, I do want to say that like all my books this one doesn’t easily fit into a sub-genre. There are elements of reverse harem in it, but it’s not in that genre.

If you only like monogamous relationships than this whole series is probably not your cup of tea. There will be love, there will be romance and happy ever afters with the right alien, but remember, the Sadecs share what they treasure most. It’s part of their culture, and for them that includes their human pets/slaves.

Often it’s a one-on-one situation, outside of public punishment, but in this book Silla ends up with Master(s) plural in a very rare situation for a little while. This is unedited obviously since I just wrote it yesterday–but I think it’s hot. what do you think?

Both of them focused solely on her, working as a team to bring her the most delightful mix of pain and pleasure from the very first night. It had been a night she’d never forget. Blindfolded, tied firmly to the bed with one on each side of her. “Mine,” Era’d whispered, with Nikon echoing the word in her other ear just a second later.

Sadec claws were drawn down the center of her chest all the way to the vee between her legs. While from the other side another set worked their way up from her ankles, the sharp points scratching delightfully along her inner thighs until she was panting, and her hips were rising off the bed in a clear invitation.

They laughed and traded off, now the claws were coming down on the left, and up on the right side of her body. This time they pressed into her harder, and she could feel the red lines trailing the claws across her bare flesh with some slight sting, but nothing unpleasant, nothing that would break the skin.

It did things to her body; wonderful things. Inside there was a delicious fluttery feeling that reminded her of going down a hill at top speed.

The darkness added an exciting element of anxiousness to things, but she just found being tied down frustrating. They seemed to be exploring every inch of her and she wanted to explore them as well. She wanted to touch them back, wanted to drag her tongue over that beautiful skin but all she could do was writhe while they played with their new toy.

It was a subtle kind of pain and never quite enough to quench her thirst or make her climax. It left her breathless and needy instead, but when she demanded more a hand lightly settled over her mouth. “Quiet, slave or we’ll have to punish you.” It was Nikon who said it, she thought, but with the blindfold on she couldn’t be sure.

She didn’t know what the punishment would consist of, but she’d learned that no matter how much of a masochist she was, they would always find ways when they wanted to make a point. Her days of saying, “Go ahead!” with a laugh were in the past now. Or at least it was something she only did on purpose when she really wanted to push, and she wasn’t ready to do that with her new Masters quite yet.

She made an effort to behave, and luckily they didn’t hold the moaning against her because she couldn’t have silenced those if she wanted to. By the time they untied her and rolled her over onto her stomach she was a shaking mess. Every inch of her skin prickled and itched from scratching, biting, and the occasional spank and the demanding pulse in her core had finally sent her over the edge at least twice.

So what do you think? Worth keeping?

Oh! Before I forget! Mark Thursday December 12th on your calendar. I’ll give you more information later, but our Facebook author group will be having a huge event. We’ll be celebrating the December holidays as well as (hopefully!) reaching our 500 member mark. There will be tons of prizes, gift cards, free books, and a whole list of awesome BDSM and spanking authors have signed up to entertain you!

If you haven’t already joined us, you should. We have a lot of fun in there and as you can tell by the name we’re pretty focused on the whole spanking thing.

Happy American Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it, and safe travels on Black Friday. It’s going to be brutal out there!

Love and spanks!

A teaser and a few announcements

To start off, since it’s my birthday today I thought I’d gift you all with a little teaser from the second Sadec book. First of all, we have a name finally! Taken by the Renegade (tentative but I like it!) It’s flowing nicely and we are maybe 3/4ths of the way done at this point. I’m really happy with how it’s coming along. I desperately want to have it finished by the end of the month, and we’re on track so far–despite my post-con sickness.

Some people might find it a little bit darker than the first and it is in some ways, but it fits the character. She’s not a novice at BDSM. She knows exactly what she wants and she’ll push until she gets it–and sometimes she ends up getting more than she expected.

We briefly met this woman in the first book and then later she was referenced towards the end, but we never really got to know her. I found her intriguing as soon as she popped up and I knew I was going to want to write more about her. Her story should do fairly well as a stand-alone but I recommend reading the first book anyway for a fuller picture of this universe: Surrendering to Her General 

Eventually it became clear she needed her own story because she is very different from Kenzi, almost opposites in some ways but somehow they still end up in the same place. Silla, called Samantha on Earth, doesn’t consider herself a submissive. She’s a pain slut and a masochist first and foremost and has always avoided any Dominant trying to give her orders–until she meets the strange new Dom in town and falls hard for him.

There’s no slow build with this book since we start off in a BDSM club. Lots of action, lots of emotion. Sam finds herself leaning towards submission for the first time in her life, but of course a lot of things happen after that to cause her to end up on the General’s ship. That’s all I’m saying for now, but I think people will be happy with it.

In other news!
Our group on facebook is planning a fabulous author party for December. Prizes, giveaways, your favorite kinky authors hanging out to entertain you. It should be a blast. We’re hoping to hit our 500 member goal before then so it can be a double celebration.

You can join here and I look forward to seeing you!

Save the date: December 12th. The event will be going on all day 11am-7pm (EST) but some authors will leave their games and contests open for 24-48 hours so even if you can’t make it during the party there should be lots you can do afterwards.

And the last thing on my agenda is that I received a really amazing email from one of the readers of this blog. I don’t want to out someone who emailed me privately, but I think we’re safe to go with “B from the Netherlands”.  Anyway she had a lot of wonderful things to say about my Dealing with Sub Drop post and how it had really helped her relationship. She went on in detail about how it made her feel and what it helped her to understand.

I was so touched. It really made my day because it’s fantastic to know that my posts are actually helpful to people and not just entertainment.  And I did try to reply to her, but it bounced. I tried a second time and it still bounced. So B from the Netherlands, if you’re out there I did reply, I promise!

I hope you see this, and I’m not sure what was wrong with your email, but I’m so glad my post helped the two of you. Feel free to try again if you can figure out what went wrong.

 

Grand Opening Author Party October 17th

I know I mentioned that I’ve grouped up with four other authors in my genre to create a Facebook group. We’re now at just over two hundred members and have planned a big grand opening party in October. If you’re not a member yet you should come join us: Sexy Spanking Authors and Readers.

I’m really excited about it! Now, if you don’t know how these parties work, basically a bunch of authors show up and take turns showing you links to their work, playing games, doing cover reveals, excerpts, and doing giveaways in their half hour slots. There will be prizes given out probably every 15 minutes or so all day long.

What is given out varies by the author but there are often free copies of books, giftcards, and sometimes author swag so it’s well worth popping in for the event.  We have sixteen authors in the line-up and all of them write in the power-exchange/ BDSM genre. Some of the top names in our genre are participating so this is your chance to find some new reading material.

Now the details, just in case you can’t load the graphic:
Date: October 17th
Time: 11am-7pm EDT (East Coast, USA)

Post Creation Blues and Another Finished Book

On Friday I finished my current WIP, and my seventh novel. The working name I’ve been going with is “Slave to the Bottle” but I’m really not sure I’m going to stick with it since it has a connotation I don’t like. The story however, I really love and I think it came out exactly the way I wanted it.

Can you guess from the name what it’s about? I’ve been super secretive about this one and no one really knows the theme, but this is the biggest clue I’ve given so maybe you can guess.

I’m taking a few days off before starting to work seriously on the Rise of the Sadecs sequel. I am feeling the ‘end of book’ sadness right now that I often deal with when I’ve finally wrapped up a book. It can be fairly intense emotionally and it will take me a few days to move past it.

I think it’s deeper this time because this book is a stand-alone so their story has ended–at least for now. Who knows what the future will bring but their HEA seems fairly complete to me at this point.

I realized that people might not know that it is a normal and common thing to feel empty and down after finishing a creative work that’s taken a long time, so I whipped up one of my Subby Writer Woes memes to cover it and I thought I’d drop a quick post here to share it with you.

Have a great weekend everyone!
