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)

Should fictional relationships be required to model healthy behavior for readers?

This topic has been coming for a while and it’s going to be a long, and hopefully interesting post because I have a lot to say about it. I’m going to use the example of Fifty Shades in the beginning, but this post isn’t specifically about that series—so don’t run off because you can’t stand the books, or because you love them and think I’m going to rip it apart.

New book and Anniversaries!

My 6th novel, Surrendering to her General, has been accepted by my usual publisher Blushing Books ! If you’ve never checked them out you should. Most of their books are romantic fiction covering relationships with elements of power-exchange, like mine.

I’m really excited about this book because I feel like I had to stretch in some new directions for it. I’ve always wanted to do a sci-fi novel, and I have another one started, but this one jumped to the head of the list. We’re probably looking at a mid-May release for it and I can’t wait to see what people think of it.

I’m especially pleased because it was two years ago this month that my first book A Haunting Experience was accepted by Blushing (February 17th 2017) so it feels like a great way to celebrate my anniversary as an author. Thank you so much for supporting me by buying my books, reading, and reviewing them. This has been a wonderful journey and more fun than I could have expected!

Thoughts escape a crowded mind

Thoughts escape a crowded mind and words spill onto the page… and that kind of freeform writing is probably what you’ll see a lot of here. This blog is going to have a little bit of everything. I plan to use it as a forum for some short stories, but also news and announcements, and general updates. Today I figured I’d start by just giving you some background and a few warnings.
