Taken by the Wolf Ch. 26

Yay!  Chapter 26 of Taken by the Wolf is now out on Literotica.  Seems like people are enjoying it, although it started a whole new slew of comments about Jordan and Trish lol.

No, I won't be doing a separate story line / series for them.  I enjoy them, but I'm going to be done with this series soon and I don't think I'll be revisiting.  I've had some good times with it, but I'm also ready to be finished.  However, their POVs are not completely done, Trish has one more POV in the last chapter to complete their story.  I'm about 1/3 of the way through the last chapter I think.  Maybe even halfway.  It's hard to tell cuz there's a few things I need to do to wrap up the story.

I'm really looking forward to moving on to finishing From Terra.  I'm really feeling the alien thing right now for some reason.  LOL.  Also, I love Chryssa.  She's a hedonistic, spirited little thing... very different from Alex, Bella or Trish, even though in some ways she's in a similar situation.  It'll also be nice to get back to working on something less plot-heavy for Lit.  I really do try not to get too plot-heavy in Lit, but my past couple series have all ended up being SUPER plot heavy.  My brain needs a break.  Stuff for Lit is supposed to be the nice, easy stuff to write where I don't have to remember too much about what's going on in the story LOL.  At least, that's the way I've always thought of it.  Having to keep track of so many different characters, what they're doing, what they've already done, what their motivations are and how they change is freaking exhausting.  Mentally, that is.  Esp when I'm also already doing that for two other full length books!

So yeah.  That's what's out right now... if I'm lucky I'll finish the last chapter by the end of this week.  If not, then sometime next week.  And then I can move on to From Terra!

In the meantime - thank you to all of you who have picked up On His Knees, and a double thank you to those of you who have taken the time to leave a review!!!  One, it always gives me warm fuzzies to see reviews, and two, it really is super helpful for me, both in terms of knowing what people enjoyed / didn't enjoy about the book and also in attracting new readers!

Not the Last Chapter

So, chapter 26 of Taken by the Wolf has been submitted to Literotica, and it turns out it's not the final one.  I thought it was going to be, I really did, but then Jordan decided to do stuff to Trish in the scene that I was giving them, and then the Wolf decided he wants one last time with Alex and Bella... and things just got out of hand.  But there really will be only one more chapter after this.  No idea when the chapter will be out.  Maybe sometime this weekend or early next week depending on the website =)

Everyone seems to like On His Knees which makes me super happy!  I had a LOT of fun writing it.  Like, so much fun.  It's loosely based on my own experience =D  Hubby did good.  So did Liam, eventually. LOL.  I wasn't sure how it would be received since it's not like there's any real conflict or drama to the story, and Liam and Hilary aren't really hardcore BDSMers, but I really freaking enjoyed doing their role-play scenes.  Liam's so bossy, even as a patient in a naughty nurse scene hahahahaha.  I'm also glad I got to show what happened between Angel and Adam after the glitter incident, a little peek into what's going on with Patrick and Lexie while Rick and Maria were doing their thing, and get to know Andrew a little more.  He and Hilary are particularly close, which is going to make his book interesting.  I haven't decided yet whether he or Jared will follow Lexie and Patrick's book.  It'll probably depend on what happens in their book.

I'm about a fourth of the way through Claiming His Wife, which is not as far along as I would like to be at this point, considering that I'd really like to get the book out sometime next month.  We'll see if I make the deadline or not.  I might have to start spreading my goal dates out a little more.   Especially because I want to start getting more stories done for my Dark Angel name.

Speaking of which. I was in a MAJOR writing mood yesterday... but I just wasn't in the mood to write anything for stuff I'd already started.  I forced myself to, and I managed to finish a chapter of Claiming His Wife - which I was already 2/3 of the way done with.  Then I let myself go ahead and start working on the story that was literally pounding against the inside of my head to be let out.  It's a story that I've been thinking about for a while that I want to do for Dark Angel, and I wrote an entire chapter yesterday.  That's the difference between writing what I think I should be and writing what I'm feeling at the moment.  *sigh*  I get so much more done when I let myself write what I'm in the mood to, but if I did that all the time, I'd probably never actually FINISH any stories.  Well, that's not true, but it would take a freaking long time.

At any rate.  The one for Dark Angel is going to be my first breast milk fetish story.  Woooo!  LOL.  No idea if any of you are even interested in that, but I've had this idea for a while for a four part series, all featuring four different planets, each devoted to a different fetish.  Basically far in the future when mankind has spread out among the stars.  Criminals are sent to these planets to cater to the law-abiding citizens' fetishes.  They don't have to go, of course, they can choose to go to the Colonies instead, but the Colonies on new planets are dangerous, primitive, and most people don't really want to go there.  On the other planets, sure the inmates might end up as a human cow or puppy, but they'll also be fed, sheltered, and cared for.  There's a cow planet, a pony-play planet, a pet-play planet and a littles planet.  Some people emigrate there anyway, because that's their fetish, but the criminals are sent - it's fairly dubious consent, although it is a voluntary thing.  No extreme body mods or anything like that though.  Anyway.  That's something that's been spinning around in my head for a while and I've already got a chapter written.  No idea when it will be out since I'm already pretty full-up for this fall, but if I keep being in the mood to write it, and write as much as I did yesterday when I'm in the mood, who knows, might be out before the end of the year.

I'm trying to figure out what to call the series though.  Prison Planets?  Fetish Planets?  Punishment Planets?  No idea.  If you have a thought, after reading through the basic idea, let me know, cuz I'm struggling a bit with that.

New Release: On His Knees

My first ever Stronghold novella!!!

Liam and Hilary are in love, living in the same apartment, and Liam's ready to take the next step... he just has to get her father's blessing, find the perfect ring and construct the perfect proposal.

On His Knees is a Stronghold novella about what Hilary and Liam were doing while Maria and Rick were figuring out their relationship in Taming the Tease. There's sexy role play, some light punishments, and a lot of romance.

If you've been reading the Stronghold series, then think of this as a behind the scenes look at some of the content from Taming the Tease.  =)  I'm super excited to give a closer look at how Liam and Hilary got engaged, some more tidbits about Patrick and Lexie, as well as a little bit more insight into Andrew (who hasn't really gotten as much attention during the past two books).  Yay! 

Since it's a novella, On His Knees is only 99 cents and is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

Please, if you have a minute when you finish, leave a review!  It's the nicest, most amazing thing you can do for me if you enjoy the story =)

On His Knees in Four Days

Only four days away from Hilary and Liam's novella!!!  So very excited to share it with you all =)  If you didn't check out my interview (see previous post) and don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then here's your first look at the gorgeous cover that RaineyCloud9 (by designer Crystal Raine) did for me! -

I just love her work!  She's also redone the covers for the Domestic Discipline Quartet and the Stronghold cover for me.  My covers are looking so pretty!!!!!!!!!!! Makes me do happy dances.  I feel more like a real author now when I look at my books =)

Soooo what's going on with me?

Well I changed the name of Lexie and Patrick's book to Mastering Lexie.  Most of you probably don't even remember, I had originally titled it Protector, but then I recently decided that it sounded too much like it was going to have lots of action/adventure in it if it was called that.  Because, even though Patrick IS her protector, it's not like she's going to be in danger at any point in the book.  I don't think anyway.  However, she IS going to be hard work for him to take control of =P  I don't have a lot of work done on the book though, because I'm mostly concentrating on Claiming His Wife (Book 4 of DDQ) and finishing Taken by the Wolf.

Taken may end up being another two chapters instead of only one more... we'll see.  Jordan and Trish decided they wanted to take center stage again for a little bit, which worked out because I can show a little bit more of how the Wolf's soldiers can operate on Earth.  There's a lot of story to tell to conclude, but not all of it is sexy, so I've just gotta see how long it ends up being and decide from there!

Interviewed by Wicked With Ink

Over the weekend I did an author interview for Wicked With Ink, a blog by another Literotica author.  Pretty awesome!  She writes about a lot of interesting things in her blog, but I was her first author interview, and I'm very honored that she asked me.  You should check it out!  She came up with some questions that I actually hadn't heard from anyone before and I had a lot of fun answering them =)

She also has a reveal for the cover for On His Knees.  If you don't follow me on Facebook or Twitter, then her blog is the first place you'll see the gorgeous cover that RaineyCloud9 did for me.  I did post it on Facebook and Twitter first, so the followers there will have already seen it =)  It'll be out next Tuesday!  Right now I'm working on the editing and making the changes that have been suggested to me.  Woot!

Things going on in my life are super busy... I'm struggling a bit with Claiming His Wife, the final book of the Domestic Discipline Quartet because there's so much going on and I'm worried that everything I'm writing sucks.  LOL.  I've been recently reassured that it doesn't, so that helps, and I'm getting back into the swing of writing, so hopefully I won't fall too behind and I will be able to have it out next month.  It'll also depend on things going on in my life, but that's what I'm aiming for.  Also, RaineyCloud9 has re-done the covers for the quartet and they are GORGEOUS.

I hope everyone who had a holiday weekend had a wonderful one, I know I did, and that you all enjoy my author interview and the new covers!  I'm looking forward to getting On His Knees out and Taken by the Wolf finished, all of which is happening this month!  YAY!

Taken by the Wolf Ch. 25

Yay!  Taken by the Wolf Ch. 25 is now out on Literotica!

I know, it's been a bit since I've had a chapter come out... I had some trouble deciding what to do with it.  Originally I'd had the idea that Cora and Trace would return for a chapter, then I decided that would be drawing out the story for too long, and then I decided to combine them into this chapter, which is the beginning of the end.  I think there's only going to be one more chapter... it's going to be a looong chapter, but just one more.  And then I'll be focusing on From Terra, which I'm really looking forward to =D  I need something less complicated than the Wolf!

In the meantime, updates on my other projects... On His Knees will be out on July 15 (barring any unforeseen difficulties with Amazon / BN).  I'll have a cover to share with you VERY soon.  The awesome designer who did the cover for Taming the Tease came up with a fantastic cover for me, since I was having such a hard time choosing - and I liked her idea better than any of the pictures I was coming up with. LOL.  She's also redone the covers for the Domestic Discipline series for me, and I'll have those up soon as well!  Pretty excited!

Things are pretty crazy IRL for me right now, just have a lot going on, so I've been a little bit slower on writing.  I'm not as far along with Claiming His Wife, the last Domestic Discipline Quartet book, as I would like to be, but it's starting to come along a little better now.  It's difficult because this is the last book in the series and I have a lot of information to wrap up in it!  Irene and Hugh are the only couple that basically have their shit together.  I still need to wrap up Eleanor & Edwin's story, with a confession on her part and a declaration on his, and then there's Cynthia and Wesley's wedding night to handle (plus, whatever more trouble she gets into on the way) and Grace and Alex's reconciliation.  It's a tall order!

Plus, Lexie and Patrick are churning in the back of my head, as always.  I've started writing a little bit of their book.  It'll be the first book in the Stronghold series to have a prologue!  If you've read Taming the Tease, then you might have been wondering about exactly what happened when Lexie showed Patrick her new jewelry... of course she does give the girls a verbal description, but I would hate for us to actually miss out on seeing that go down.  So that's the prologue and then I'll be jumping right into the story!  There's also going to be some more glimpses of that couple in On His Knees.  Even though OHK takes place at the same time as TtT, Hilary and Liam see more of their friends than Rick and Maria did, so we get some extra information =)

I can't wait to share with you!

An Update, A Giveaway, and a Tease

Okay!  So thanks to Hermoine, I now know how to fix the comments thing... however, I haven't had time yet to respond to all the ones that have now appeared on the blog LOL.  Good thing other people are techno-savvy and willing to tell me what I'm doing!

I've been kind of bad about getting writing done lately, but I'm getting back into it.  I was on a major reading kick for a bit - which is not a bad thing since reading always gives me new ideas for writing, but it does mean I haven't been getting as much of my own writing done.  However, I'm still right on track for releasing On His Knees on July 15 (yay!) and I'm about halfway through the second to last chapter of Taken by the Wolf (also yay!). 

Now, on to the giveaway - YellowSilkDreams who does my paperbacks and also makes a couple of my books available on other sites, is giving away a free book of your choice from their collection in return for the ability to let you know when they have a new book coming out.  It's a pretty good deal =)  so you should check that out here.

And now for the tease... which, of course, is going to be for On His Knees, to get you back in the mood for Hilary and Liam!

Liam propelled Hilary through the door and into the club, away from Lexie.  She knew that the guys were all relieved about not having to watch over Lexie now that she was stuck behind the front desk for a while.  It meant they could relax.  Andrew was behind the bar as usual, wearing matching leather pants and a vest, chatting with Adam and Angel.  Olivia was over in the Lounge area, talking to two different subs, both of whom were vying for her attention.  Most likely Patrick was still back in his office; Hilary knew that Jessica and her guys weren't coming tonight, and Rick hadn't shown up since the debacle following Maria's Introduction scene.  Hilary really hoped the two of them worked that out; she liked Maria a lot.  All the Stronghold girls had. 

"Hey honey-girl, come back to me," Liam said softly, just loud enough to be heard over the music, as his arm wrapped around her hip, pulling her against him.  She looked up at his boyishly handsome face, the barely restrained sexual hunger clear in his silvery eyes.  "You're a million miles away."

"Sorry," she said, feeling rather breathless now that she was focusing on her wonderfully dominant boyfriend again.  Usually just walking into the club had that effect on her, because they usually played while they were here, using the fantasy rooms to help them enact all sorts of role-play scenarios.  They could do some at home too, but she had to admit, the rooms here really helped set the scene.  "Just thinking about Rick and Maria."

"Mmm... I see.  I guess I'll have to work to get you thinking about me," he said teasingly, steering her towards Angel and Adam's seats at the bar.  

Hilary smiled up at him.  "I guess you will."

Laughing, Liam turned away to greet their friends, but his hand remained on Hilary's hip, just above the flare of her skirt.  She saw several other submissives checking out her outfit and knew that Angel would probably have more new customers by the end of tonight.  Ever since joining Stronghold, Angel's Etsy shop had really taken off; she was swamped with orders, although she always took time to do custom designs for her friends.  She called them her guinea pigs.  

Surprisingly, Angel wasn't wearing one of her own outfits.  She was dressed as a school girl, with a very short pleated skirt and a white button down top that had been tied just under her breasts, exposing her midriff, and her hair was done up in a simple pony-tail.  

"You look cute," Hilary said, letting her curiosity fill her voice.  Angel rolled her eyes, giggling a little bit.  


"She does, doesn't she?"  Adam said, his voice filled with smug satisfaction as Angel made a face.  He was wearing his regular clothes, dress pants and a button down shirt, although it was unbuttoned and the sleeves were rolled up as a concession to the summer heat outside.  Even though Angel really did look adorable, Hilary suddenly realized that the outfit was some kind of punishment for something.  "She's a very good little school girl.  We've been having lessons in behavior, ever since she helped Lexie with that glitter prank."

Oh, oh, oh!  Hilary immediately wondered why Angel hadn't mentioned this.  The pretty half-Asian didn't blush easily, not like Hilary, but her cheeks were starting to turn red.  Obviously whatever Adam had been doing to her as punishment for her part in that stunt, she found it embarrassing enough that she hadn't clued in any of her friends about it.  

"Angel's going to be writing lines in the schoolroom today," Adam continued, stroking his girlfriend's back while he looked down at her.  "What are you writing, Angel?"

For a moment, Angel just glared up at him, her jaw tense.  Adam raised his eyebrow at her and then reached to her front and pinched her nipple, hard enough to make her yelp.  Liam's arm around Hilary tightened, his hands splaying across her stomach as if he was thinking about doing something similar and she felt her own body respond; her insides warming as her nipples hardened slightly.  Even though Adam took things farther with Angel than she would ever want to go, she couldn't help but occasionally get aroused watching them.  It had been really weird at first, to see her friends in sexual situations, but somehow over the months she'd gotten used enough to it to be turned on by it.  

Angel muttered something under her breath and then looked up at Hilary, not quite meeting her eyes.  "I am a naughty girl who deserves a spanking.  I will learn not to disrespect the Doms."

"Louder, sweetheart," Adam said, his eyes glinting as he caressed Angel's breast in warning.  Her nipple was already pressing against the fabric of her shirt, as if asking for more.  

"I am a naughty girl who deserves a spanking.  I will learn not to disrespect the Doms," Angel said more loudly, back to glaring at her own Dom as she said it.  Laughter rang out around them at her words, which had been loud enough that everyone within a ten foot radius had been able to hear.  Angel's face heated to an even deeper red.  Hilary was impressed; Angel would hate writing lines and she would hate having to repeat that phrase publicly even more.  But she loved spankings.  So Adam was combining funishment with real punishment, and probably enjoying himself entirely too much along the way.  

"She's such a good little schoolgirl," Adam said, his hand sliding back up so that he could tug on her ponytail, tipping her head back.  Angel's eyes glazed slightly in response as he tugged on her hair, but she still looked kind of pissed.  

"Real school girls don't have to write lines with a plug in their ass while they're being spanked," she snapped back at him.

Adam leaned into her, bringing his mouth near her ear, but Hilary could still hear what he said.  "But sweetheart, that's the part of the punishment that you like."
The low, almost threatening tone of voice he used made both Hilary and Angel shiver.  Beside her, Liam chuckled a little; he was always amused by Hilary's fascination with watching the dynamics between other couples.  Sometimes it turned her on, sometimes it didn't, but it always interested her.  At first she'd been embarrassed by her voyeuristic tendencies.  Now she embraced them.  Liam's hand had started caressing up and down her stomach, tracing a line from just underneath her breast, down to her hips and then back up again.  Heat was gathering in the center of her body, making her skin tingle and feel more sensitive.
