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)

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!
This is going to be fairly short. Reviews are very important. Please remember to review, especially if the book you are reviewing has under a hundred reviews on Amazon.

Helllooo, lovely readers! Hope you are all having a great summer so far! Mine is going well, though I haven’t been able to extract myself from my writer’s dungeon to go out and enjoy the sun nearly enough. Surrendering to Her General continues to do fantastic and the Facebook release party was a lot of fun. Continue reading “New WIP with a short spanking snippet!”
Helllooo, lovely readers! The new book: Surrendering to her General is doing amazingly well on Amazon. It is ranking better than any other book I’ve written, even almost a month after release. Honestly, I’m a bit in shock over it, and I haven’t even had my release party yet.
I wanted to remind you that I will be taking part in my Publisher’s monthly release party on Facebook, July 3rd and I would love to have you guys participate.
