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!
Sexy Spanking Authors and Readers

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)
