Thanks For the Past Year!

Woo! Happy New Years Eve!

First Time at the Gyno is now available to read on Lit!
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful New Years Eve planned =)  Remember - drinking and driving is bad. Have a DD, call a cab, or find out the number of a place that will drive you for free if you're drunk (they exist).
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for making this past year really great for me. I truly appreciate every single comment and feedback email that I receive, it helps keep me motivated to keep up with the writing.  It doesn't matter whether you're anonymous or not, I'm grateful to know that there are people out there who are reading my work and loving it.  Of course, I do notice those who leave their names, and it really does tickle me pink when I start recognizing someone's name over and over again.  AquaPrincess was probably the first one who stood out, but now I get excited over a lot of names - joodle, delisha, fifi, tx, gemini, eliza, etc. etc. (I couldn't possibly name them all, although those are the ones off the top of my head that I immediately recognize). I love hearing from all of you =)
I probably wouldn't have kept writing this year without all of the feedback I got upon my return to Lit, and I definitely wouldn't have started putting out anything on Amazon without the suggestions of readers, so thank you all so much for the support you've given me this past year and pushing me to farther than I would have gone on my own. I can't wait to see what the next year brings!

As a little happy end of year / beginning of new year titillation... here's a picture (of me):

Toy Review: Hitachi

One of my Christmas presents to myself this year was a Hitachi.
 
The first time I ever saw one was on the episode of Sex in the City where Samantha loses her orgasm and her favorite vibrator breaks - it's a Hitachi. I looked at it and thought "really? that's your favorite?"  It's meant to be a personal body massager and you can pick one up at Sharper Image, Brookstone, etc. or online.  I just think it's funny the stores that you can find it at. There is no dildo part unless you buy attachments (which I did, more on that in a moment) and so I was rather skeptical of its use.

Fast foward a little less than ten years and I'm checking out porn that I got for free on Lit (if you buy a certain amount at their toy store they give you free minutes) as well as looking at pics on FetLife and I start noticing that there are a lot of Hitachis being used on bound women. In fact, there seems to be almost a fetish behind it. Then I get onto Twitter and someone I'm following re-tweets a Hitachi post, so I start following Hitachi... which constantly re-tweets posts from men and women about how much they love their toy, etc. 
 
Okay well now I'm curious.
 
So I decide to order one for Christmas.  It comes in the mail - whoo-hoo!  Hubby's not home! Perfect time to experiment. I often prefer to start my experiments when he's not home, especially when it comes to playing with myself because I'm a little shy about doing that in front of another person.  Plug it in... it only has two settings low and high... spread my legs and set it where it will do the most good before flicking the switch to Low.
 
HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
 
First of all... talk about a pussy massage.  Folds vibrating... everywhere. Even where the head wasn't touching. Since the head is made of a kind of soft material it means that it's not too rough to hold it directly against your most intimate bits. In fact it feels pretty fucking fantastic. Then I moved it up towards my clit and just about levitated off the bed.  It took under a minute for the first climax to hit and then I had to move the thing away before I went into oversensitive post-orgasm painful territory.
 
I can't imagine what it's like for the women I saw in the video who are left with the damn thing pressed against them and no way to escape.  There's no way I'd be able to do that for myself, I would have to be tied down and someone would have to be doing it to me. Self preservation demanded that I remove it.
 
Since that first time I've gotten a little bit better at drawing it out, but it still doesn't take me very long. One thing to be careful of, as with any vibrator, is not getting dependent on the toy however. Really strong vibrations can end up numbing your sensitive parts and the effect can take a long time (as in weeks or possible months) to go away if you overuse any toy. And over-using the hitachi is EXTREMLY TEMPTING.
 
When I got the Hitachi I also got an attachment, as I mentioned. I chose one that would use both holes and had a clit attachment.  The best way I found to use this toy was to ride it.  It's also the best way I've found so far of slowing down the road to climax, it took me longer with the attachment than without.  I'm probably going to order some more attachments.  Just to see what they do. I'm a curious kitty.
 
I'm also curious to see what effect it has on hubby, but I haven't done that yet. I'll do a secondary review on it once I've got more attachments and have played with it a bit more.  What I will say for now is that it's quite a bit of fun, but it doesn't last very long for me, the idea of orgasm torture has taken on a whole new terror, and it's the best toy I have for getting off a quick one when I'm feeling the need but don't have more than a minute or two.  That used to mean that I was just going to have to go on being horny and it's quite a relief that that's no longer the case.

End of the Year Thoughts

Wow... I can't believe that 2012 is almost over. It's been a pretty big year for me. Not only did I come back to Literotica and start writing again, but I also managed to make my way to the #1 favoritest author spot on the favorites page (and it looks like I'm going to be holding that position! WOOT!), won my first seasonal writing contest, and have started publishing some of my books on Amazon! All in all... pretty damn exciting for me! Plus, I also went to Harry Potter World, Disney World, celebrated my first wedding anniversary, my first ever Redskins game, and Florida for the first time!  I've had a pretty damn exciting year. Next year is looking pretty good too.
 
I've been on a bit of a writing craze this week... I think I have this idea in my head that as soon as I finish the Poker Loser Trilogy I'll be able to turn all of my concentration to the conclusion of the Venus Rising Quartet and the Stronghold Doms. Granted, I could probably split my time between the two evenly, but right now Winning Hand is definitely taking the majority of my focus. I'm hoping to have it done fairly quickly and then I'll be finished with it. Not that I don't love Allison and Todd, but I can't lie... I find the Venus characters much more intriguing at the moment. Still, I need to finish the trilogy, so that's my immediate goal. And I am having a lot of fun with it, because Todd gets much rougher than Justin or Liam.  Eventually some of the Stronghold Doms will get as rough (or rougher) than Todd with their subs, but that's in the future, so for now I'm enjoying Todd's antics =)  Of course I'm still working on Venus Transcendent as well, just not as much as I am on Winning Hand.
 
I'm glad that everyone enjoyed the conclusion to Being the Maid (at least, from the comments I've gotten so far it certainly seems like everyone enjoyed it)... I had a lot of fun writing it and I enjoyed the way the story ended up.  For those who thought I could have continued... yes I could have but it would be a different story. There was no way to continue it as a non-con story and that's what it started out as.  I probably will not continue Garrett & Bridget's story, however there's been a lot of requests for a story about Samuel's future (which is something I was already considering when the requests started coming in) and it's possible that I will do that.  It won't be immediate though and it won't be another long series if I do it. I don't think anyway. I'm still pondering possible storylines for him if I write a continuation of his story.
 
I've started work on finishing Witch.  Yay! That's another plot-heavy story, which isn't bad, it just takes me long to write those.  In the meantime, I needed to do something less plot heavy to let my brain rest a bit and decided to fulfill a reader request that was made for a story involving a doctor. Kind of surprising that I haven't had much to do with medical stories... there's a lot of elements there that often really appeal to me and yet I've never written one. Strange right? Anyway. I had fun just whipping that one off and it's been submitted, should be out in the next couple of days. It's called First Time at the Gyno and it's in the non-con category. As short non-con stories go I think it's one of my better ones... might be all the practice I've recently gotten in that particular category =D Now I'll be moving my focus back to Witch and doing my best to finish that in a timely manner.
 
So that's what's going on with me. I hope everyone has a great last weekend of the year!

Wanna Bet?

So, I was torn between making a revised Wanna Bet? part of an anthology or setting it out as a standalone... and ended up deciding on standalone. It's pretty different from the Literotica version... it doesn't have as many sex scenes, for one.  I only did about half of the original bets because the storyline/romance ends up taking on more importance than the sexual acts and the story ended up coming to its natural conclusion sooner than it did when I wrote it for Literotica and was concentrating on the sex.

Derrick and Kerry have been best friends for a long time, with a long standing ritual of bets that tend to push them beyond the bounds of friendship, but they never act on - or even acknowledge - any feelings that they have beyond being best friends. Somehow their relationships with other people never work out but that's okay because they always have their friendship to fall back on. In fact, they've gotten further sexually with each other than with anyone they've dated.

Their good friends Janice and Missy take it upon themselves to push Kerry and Derrick to admitting their feelings by beginning their own campaign to set Derrick and Kerry up with other people. Unsure of where they want their relationship to go Derrick and Kerry are still refusing to admit their feelings, but the nature of their bets pushes the boundaries of friendship farther and farther.

Will Janice and Missy's plan work or will small jealousies overcome the friendship? Will Kerry and Derrick ever admit their feelings for each other or will their bets just become a thing of the past?

This is a 14,475 word novella containing graphic and erotic sex.

Being the Maid Conclusion

YAY!

Chapter 10 of Being the Maid is finally available on Lit!

I was starting to get sooooooo frustrated at how long that was taking. Geezie! So, very glad it's finally out. 

I had a wonderful holiday and I hope everyone else did too... now it's back to the daily grind *sigh* At least until next week when the NY celebrations start =) YAY!

Not too much else to report... managed to do a little bit of writing over the weekend but not a lot. Working hard on the books. Starting to work on Witch today. Good stuff!

Still Waiting...

I was really hoping that Chapter 10 of Being the Maid would be up by now, but it looks like the holidays are slowing down the publication rate on Lit or something. *sigh* Certain times of the year it just takes longer than usual I guess since the people who approve the stories probably have a lot going on.  Still... super frustrating when I know that people are waiting and I'm like dude... I SUBMITTED! It's not my fault!

Anyway. Holiday times also mean I'm not getting as much writing done as usual and I haven't had time to re-read Witch yet. So what writing I HAVE been doing is focused on the books, which is definitely not a bad thing since it means that I'm getting work done on them =) Had lots of holiday stuff going on this past weekend... got more going on today and tomorrow and then life is back to normal until busy season at my day job starts in January. But I'll be getting as much writing done as possible between now and then =)

Something's wrong with The Venus School of Sex on Amazon, I'm trying to figure out how to fix it now and it should be available again soon... I hope.

Hope everyone who celebrates it is having a Merry Christmas Eve and I hope everyone else is having a good Monday!

End of the World?

Probably not.  A lot of people who actually study the Mayans believe that this is the end of an 'era' after which we move into a new world consciousness. Which sounds interesting and hopefully good to me =)
 
At any rate, let's hope it's not the end of the world because I just submitted Chapter 10 of Being the Maid last night. Man is it looooong. Ended up being 6 Literotica pages, which is over 30 pages in Word. I knew it was going to be ridiculously long.  But I think I'm pretty happy with it... just nervous that other people won't be happy with it. Considering everything that Bridget went through... well let's just say that putting some romance into that wasn't the easiest thing in the world!!! So that should be out within the next couple of days. I'm going to be super curious as to what everyone thinks.
 
Kind of a relief to be done with it... and at the same time kind of sad. I really enjoyed those characters. And, to be perfectly honest, it's much easier to write something new than it is to return to something old and finish it. Completing Witch is going to be a whole new kind of challenge for me. Which is good =) I'd hate to be resting easy on my laurels or anything lol.
 
I also want to put out a few standalones. It's harder to do those though, because people usually want some kind of continuation. And sometimes I end up wanting the story to continue even though I originally mean it to be a standalone LOL.  It's very complimentary that people want the characters and story to continue, but sometimes I'm only good for the one go.  The series that I write take a lot of motivation and drive behind them, because they take so much more effort. And sometimes I just don't have that kind of motivation and drive to continue the story. I can usually tell from the beginning whether or not it's going to be one I can continue - I didn't use to be able to do that, but after having been doing this for years now I'm usually able to tell right off the bat.
 
Anyway. If you're worried about the world ending and you're hoping to survive, make sure you remember William Shatner's advice - Don't wear a red shirt ;)

Teasers... Multiple!

I've updated the Venus Rising Quartet page and the Poker Loser Trilogy pages with teasers for the next books... both of which are the last book in each set. Yay!!!! As for progress on said books... well they're both in the beginning stages. But I'm feeling pretty confident about where each of them are going and hopefully I'll be able to finish them in a timely manner.

Everyone will be happy (I hope) to know that I think I've finished Being the Maid. I say 'think' because I'm having someone read over the chapter before I submit it... I'm feeling in the need of feedback before I put it out there for everyone to judge =D I'm pretty happy with it, just feeling rather anxious. It's not at all like my usual stories and the pressure for a satisfying end is rather high. At least, I feel like it is.

So that's what's going on... hopefully Chapter 10 will be submitted sometime tomorrow and out by next week. =)  In the meantime, enjoy the teasers! And don't forget... writers love feedback ;) Helps keep us motivated to keep writing!

Where I'm At

I really am like THISCLOSE to finishing Being the Maid.  It's a long, long, last chapter. Which I knew it was going to be. So far over 30 pages in Word. And someone commented on the last one wondering why I didn't just finish it there... cuz it's a LONG last chapter!

Anyway. I was wavering yesterday on whether or not I was happy with it (which is a horrifying prospect when you're as close to finishing a story as I am, when you start doubting the entire last chapter that you've written). I've received some reassurance on the direction that I'm going in and I'm hoping to finish it very soon... within the next couple of days. Which will hopefully mean that it will be available sometime next week on Lit. That's the plan at the moment anyway.

And then I'll start working on completing Witch, although I may also throw out a couple of standalone shorts like Cabin Boy. As much as I do enjoy the long stories, sometimes I need to just get something hot and sexy and short out... relieves the pressure in my brain after writing something more complex ;) Witch is another very detailed story line and the characters are already set up to go through some major changes. Although I do know how I want it to end. Which is good. I just have to write it out =)

I really try not to talk about world events / political events etc. on this blog... I don't want it to become a place where I just vent out my issues with the world. It would be all to easy for my blog to become a bunch of my rants about my strong viewpoints.  I want it to stay focused on my writing, what's going on with my characters, and occasional glimpses into my life. However, I haven't been able to get the events from Newton, CT out of my head since Friday and so I just wanted to give some kind of... I don't know... acknowledgment of the heroes of that day, my grief for those who were lost, and my thoughts and prayers to all of those effected by the tragedy. Take the time to give your children a hug, to give a friend a call, to reach out and let the people that you love know that you love them.

The Hobbit

So I am heap big nerd ;)

Went to see The Hobbit this weekend - SO GOOD. Dressed up to go see it. Did NOT go to the midnight showing... was just there on Friday evening dressed up with a few of my friends. A couple people cheered us. Hahahaha. We're awesome. Really love that they're doing such detailed movies for this one... I'm a big fan of the LOTR movies but they def had to cut some things from those, it's kind of awesome that they're doing The Hobbit in 3 parts!

It's been a busy weekend. Freaking holiday times. I did not get as much writing done this weekend as I would have liked, although I did get a little bit done. I'm soooo close to being done with Being the Maid. Like I said, it's a long chapter... but I've finished out writing the endings for the Princess, Blaine and Samuel. Now I just need to wrap up Bridget and Garrett's story, but of course theirs is the longest ending. They've got a lot of shit to work out.

It would be so easy to do a lazy, fast ending, but I feel like it wouldn't be nearly as satisfying. So yeah. Trying to do one that will satisfy everyone.

In the meantime... thank you so much to everyone who's leaving reviews on Amazon for Venus Desiring, I really appreciate it!

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Oops hahaha

So because I'm human, I made a boo-boo and the cover for Venus Aspiring is incorrect LOL. It says book 4 instead of book 3. But I promise it's only book 3! That's so not the end of the quartet, I promise! =D It got a bunch of downloads yesterday so I hope that everyone enjoyed the free promo! Please, please, please leave a review. It means a lot to me, both personally and for my popularity on amazon. People with more reviews get more face time on the site. That's just how it works.

Meanwhile... I'm a writing fiend. Trying to get as much done before January when my job gets super busy and I'll be working longer hours for the next few months, which means a lot less time for writing.  I make overtime, thankfully, but it does mean my output when it comes to writing is going to be effected.


I will definitely have
Being the Maid done before the end of this month. I think I'm about 2/3 - 3/4 of the way through the final chapter. It is LONG, as I mentioned in my author note on Ch. 9. Someone commented on Chapter 9 that I should have just ended it there... but I didn't cut it off for shits and giggles or because I wanted to draw out the storyline, I cut it off because there's a lot more story to tell and a little bit of a cliffhanger is good for the soul. I'm wrapping a LOT of stuff up, not just Garrett and Bridget's story, but everyone else's stories too. I always hate it when stories end and you only know what happens to the main characters and the others are dismissed as if they weren't important at all. I've completed the Princess' section, I'm about to do Samuel's. I have to figure out where I'm going to work in Blaine's. And then the very end will be what happens with Garrett and Bridget. It's a LOT to write and Chapter 9 would have been way too long if I'd made it the last chapter. This chapter is going to be super long as it is.

I'm a little bit nervous about it being the last chapter, because sooooo many people have told me that this is their favorite story from me so far, and that always adds to the pressure. That seems to be happening a lot lately, and I love that everyone loves each series that I'm putting out and thinks that each one is better than the last, but it does make coming to a satisfying conclusion a little bit more anxiety-inducing for me LOL. I keep thinking "oh no, what if people hate it? what if they don't think it's a good end?" etc. etc. So far I really like what I have though, and usually that's a good sign, if I'm not getting upset with it.


As soon as I'm done with
Maid I'll be working on finishing up Witch before moving on to anything new for Lit - although I might throw another standalone quickie or two in there if the characters start bugging me too much. The gay male piece that I submitted a few days ago was like that; the characters have been in my head literally for MONTHS and then I read a gay male short that I'd gotten for free on my Kindle and the characters just kind of took over and were like no, you're writing us now. That happens sometimes. Rowdy characters in my brain.

I've started on
Venus Transcendent, the beginning of the end... I'm also working on Winning Hand, the last book in the Poker Loser series. I was hoping to have the Poker Loser Trilogy done by now to be honest, but Hilary and Liam kind of took over.  Now Allison and Todd are clamoring for my attention pretty loudly so we'll see how well I manage to split my time. I would like to get Poker Loser out first to be honest, although part of that is I also think it's going to be a shorter book than Venus. Either way there's a lot of writing going on. I'll be posting teasers to both of these on their respective pages very soon, definitely before the end of this month.

Although the very first thing I need to do is fix the
Venus Aspiring cover. *sigh* I hate it when I do stupid things LOL.

Toy Review: Toothpaste & Venus Desiring

Say what?

So, I read a lot. I'm a speed reader. I go through a ridiculous number of books a month, especially since I got my Kindle.  And in several of the BDSMy books that I've read, toothpaste as been used.  The first time I read about it, I laughed. The second time I started to wonder if this was actually a thing. After the third time I read about it in a book by a third different author, I decided it merited a try.  After all, the descriptions were intriguing and toothpaste is definitely easily accessible. Not to mention cheap. 

I started out the way I had read in the books - with my nipples. I pinched them to hardness and put just a small dab on the end of each one.

HOLY CRAP. 

I can't speak for the "scent of mint assaulting my nose" as one author wrote (although, unlike the character I was not blindfolded at the time of this experiment so it's possible that my senses just weren't suitably heightened) but I can definitely verify the rest of the descriptions. Cold. Tingly almost to the point of burning. They hardened even further and it was a rather delicious sensation.  My breasts felt much more sensitive all over.  

Then I moved down to my clit. Everywhere the toothpaste touched was icy and tingly and wonderful yet slightly torturous. I'm not sure how I'm going to bring this up to my husband, but I'm now having fantasies of being bound, blindfolded and tormented with toothpaste. The idea of hot breath across the cool tingly surface sounds wonderful.  Especially since when I cleaned the toothpaste off, everything got all tingly all over again. 

I will say that once I put it on my clit, I didn't feel lit as much on my nipples anymore. And masturbating displaced what was on my clit - although that made lots of other things tingle too. However, once I rinsed off the toothpaste my nipples were even more sensitive and tingly than before. It made me wonder whether or not toothpaste and clamps would work well together... once I get my clamps I will have to find out, but I'm a little worried that the toothpaste would make the surface too slippery for the clamp to get a good grip. I'll have to see. 

But I have been converted. Expect to read about toothpaste in some stories eventually. ;)


As to writing... I've submitted a very short Gay Male piece to Literotica that should be up in a couple of days, just a quickie that I needed to get out of my head before it drove me crazy and I'm about halfway through the last chapter of Being the Maid =)

Venus Desiring will have its free promo day on amazon.com tomorrow!!!!

Venus Desiring - CHECK!

Let the editing begin!

I'm done writing Venus Desiring. HOLY CRAP. And only a little over a week past my goal! That's not too bad =) Especially considering how freaking long this particular book is! Over 80,000 words. Geezus!  That's good though, I'm sure you'll all appreciate it =) There's a lot of story to this book and I'm really looking forward to finishing up the romances.  I would definitely rate this an erotic romance, lots of plot and lots of sex all around. 

So now I've just gotta go through and edit/format everything for Kindle, which hopefully won't take more than a couple of days and then I'll be submitting it to Amazon. And of course I will post here on the blog when it's available. Like the others, I will be doing a one day free promotion when it comes out (Yay!).  And it will be available for other formats on Smashwords in a couple of months and I'll announce when that happens too of course =)

Very happy right now! Finishing a book is always such a good feeling, especially when I'm really happy with the book in question. Which I am. I think there's a pretty good balance of Hilary & Liam vs. Jessica, Chris & Justin.  There's more JJC than I originally planned, which is part of what extended the length of the book, but it really helped to round the story out. And Hilary and Liam ended up doing things differently than I originally thought they would as well. 

Anyway... just excited that I finished and wanted to share! Especially since I'm hoping to announce that it's available by the end of this week =)

Chapter 9 and Randomness

Chapter 9 of Being the Maid is finally out! YAY!

It's amazing that I manage to get any writing done with the amount of things that I have swirling around my head. Not just my own ideas, but other people's.

This week I've been forcing myself to focus entirely on Venus Desiring with only a few sidetracks into Being the Maid Ch. 10, because I want to get it done SO BAD. And I'm halfway through the second to last chapter, so I'm doing pretty good on that count. But it's damn hard to focus. 

Why? Well, partly because as I'm working on Venus Desiring I'm also figuring out the set up for Venus Transcendent and how I'm going to wrap everything up for Hilary and Liam and Jessica, Justin and Chris. At the same time I'm thinking about the other characters at Stronghold and where I want their stories to go, and any time I mention them within the book I start thinking about THEIR books and what's going to happen to them later.  Throughout this, I'm figuring out exactly how the last chapter of Maid is going to go and working on getting that set-up when I take a little diversion into that story.  

Now if only that was all I had going on. But no. I'm also thinking about Winning Hand, the last book of the Poker Loser Trilogy that I haven't been able to focus on nearly as much as I would like to because I've gotten so sidetracked and immersed in Venus. But Allison and Todd and where they're going is still on my mind... I'm looking forward to it because I want to write a whole wedding planning type book, been wanting to do that for ages actually. Ever since planning my own wedding.  I have lots of fun things to put into the story, some from things I've heard from other brides, and some that my head just keeps coming up with.

And on top of that, I'm trying to figure out where Witch is going to go. I've decided to do 2 chapters to finish out that story and I think I know how it ends, as long as the characters don't end up fighting me.  

My head keeps slipping back to Victorian times... partly because I've been reading a lot of Regency / Victorian romance and erotica lately. I actually have started several pieces within that time period. One was over the summer - my own erotic take on Bram Stoker's Dracula.  I also have a birching story and a regular romance/erotica story that are swirling around my head and that I've done some work on. 

Everything I've mentioned... those are just the things I've worked on. But I also have a bunch of other stories in my head that keep getting fleshed out and I don't have time to work on them all at once! Most of which will end up on Literotica, some of which are reader requests. Several Loving Wives stories - a house guest and a young housewife who loves her husband but has needs that he's not meeting, a husband bent on getting revenge on his cheating wife with the help of a friend, a husband who wants to fulfill his wife's fantasy of being with a black man - which will just happen to fulfill a fantasy of his own (and probably not in the way you'd immediately think). An in/taboo Victorian era story where family runs away to avoid debtor's prison to Mother's brother's wilderness retreat and are at his mercy - and he always had a thing for his sister, one where a young woman in her uncle's care is injured and wakes up in an Oz type land where her Uncle has been made King and she's his virgin queen, and one where a daughter sees her father and college age sister getting it on and realizes that she wants to be in her sister's place. 

There's a gay male cabin boy / first mate story that's been in my head for months now. A Daddy Dom story.  A blackmail story where a girl takes out a loan from her father's friend and pays it back with her body - each sex act being worth a certain amount of money.  A woman signs up for a week as a chambermaid in a castle at a resort that specializes in sexual fantasies - hers being forced seduction / non-con / etc. - other guests have signed up for positions as nobles, royalty, footmen, guards, etc. and who you can order around depends on your position.  

I've written down an outline for an entire series of office romances amongst a group of friends (Working Title: Work Benefits hahahaha).

This isn't even all of them. I feel like I could go on forever. They're all just constantly swirling around my brain as I think of more things to add to them, ways to flesh them out, where I want the stories to go... and yet I can only actually focus on writing a few at a time or I'd never finish any of them. It's SO frustrating. Sometimes I wish it was as easy as just typing out an outline and letting people read that, but that's nowhere near as satisfying *sigh* Not emotionally or... well... ah... whatever you do when you're reading stories ;) lol. And of course I'm constantly thinking up new ideas. 

Some days I'm surprised my head doesn't explode.

When Will It End?

Unfortunately I'm not talking about any of my stories, I'm talking about being sick. UGH. 

Hopefully soon because it's turning my brain to mush. Although I've still been churning out lots of good work... I keep checking to see if Being the Maid Ch. 9 is out... should be any day now. I've started work on Chapter 10. I know where things are going and I think the characters are 100% behind me so it's just getting it all typed out. Which, since it's going to be a long chapter, is probably going to take awhile. That and knowing where things are going doesn't cover knowing exactly what everyone will say and what actions will get me to the end. But I think it's going to be really good. I hope. I'm looking forward to the reaction from Ch. 9 because it's soooo far away from where I thought that chapter was going to go originally and it came as a complete surprise to me as I was writing it. 

Sooooo close to being done with Venus Desiring. I know I keep saying that but it's true. It actually gets frustrating when I get this close because I just want it to be done... but like I said, knowing what's going to happen doesn't take care of dialogue / descriptions. I've gotten a LOT of work done on it this past week. It's just that it's a very long book, probably going to be on par with The Venus School of Sex when it comes to length. So far on my Word document it's over 75,000 words. Jeepers! ;) Aaand not finished yet. To give you an idea - Venus School was about 84,000 words and Aspiring was about 59,000 words. So you know... I promise I'm not slacking! 

Now, unfortunately several of my other projects (including finishing Witch and writing the third book of the Poker Loser series) have been pushed to the side until I complete these two. I'm going to be able to give both of those my attention very soon though and hopefully will have the third book of Poker Loser out this winter and finish Witch by the new year. That's the goal anyway =)

Did a little Christmas shopping for myself yesterday... wanted to get me some naughty toys. So there should be more toy reviews coming soon =D Plus I'm hoping some of these things will help me in my writing. I wonder if I could use them as a tax write-off since I'm writing about this stuff. Heh heh... research materials! ;) I'm rather excited. I got my first electricity set. Not a violet wand, although I want one of those, but they're so expensive that I thought I should start off my electricity explorations with something smaller / cheaper and work my way up to that. Hopefully hubby will be interested in helping me with these... he's handy when it comes to electronics and stuff. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends up modifying some of it. Anyway. Also got some nipple clamps, some stuff that's supposed to help me deep throat (I've used gel in the past but they don't seem to sell that anymore so I'm trying out a spray), a Hitachi with a 3-pronged attachment (SUPER excited about this one, I'm hoping that the Hitachi lives up to its hype!), and a few other goodies. 

Looking forward to researching. *Ahem* Totally for educational purposes. I swear. =D

Toy Review: 10" Rubber Whip

I love this whip.

It's not really meant for hard punishment as far as I can tell, it's too small to really do any damage unless you're really hitting hard.  Although if you use it over and over on the same place then it starts to hurt after awhile, but it really does take a fair amount of time. However, it's got a nice little sting to it, a good warm up piece or just good for sensual impact rather than punishing when used on the ass and thighs. 

The other great thing about it is that it's really made to be used one more sensitive areas of the body, where that little sting makes a much bigger difference.  A few impacts across the breasts with this and my nipples are jumping for attention.  Keep it up and the sting becomes both erotic and a little painful, just enough to really sensitive the whole area.  I'm eager to find out what it's like when combined with clamps, I have a feeling it will sting a lot more then and feel really good.  And, obviously, it's a good pussy whip.  The multiple strands mean that it hits over a pretty wide area, and while that makes it hard to aim, it also means that every slap is going to hit a whole bunch of different nerve endings. 

To me, pussy whipping is where it really becomes an erotic impact toy.  The further a woman's legs are spread, the more places those little strands end up hitting.  Even better, because of the short handle and the length of the strands, it's really easy to use on yourself if you want to do a little preliminary work before masturbating. Obviously it's harder to aim when you're hitting yourself, but the many strands means that the lack of aim isn't that big a deal - you can hit a lot without being able to see it, and the randomness of the impacts only adds to the eroticism. Also, because it's rubber it's super easy to clean afterwards, even if it gets wet with juices. 

This is a really great starter whip for someone who wants to try a little impact play but is nervous or worried about the amount of pain. As an introduction piece, it can be used on any part of the body that a real whip would be used for, and the way the little strands curl around your body parts is just great.  For actual punishment it's most effective on the nipples, pussy and asshole; the sensation is mostly stinging with a little bit of a bite to it. 

Fun. =)

Plagiarizing

Hmm... it appears that lately people have been taking some of my stories and posting them on different sites under their own names, changing nothing about the story except the character names.  That's called plagiarizing dammit! *sigh* Fortunately there are lots of nice people on the internet on the look out for things like that, but still... I've had people notify me on 3 instances in the past month. I don't understand it either, because it doesn't look like any of these sites are paying for the stories, so why copy mine? If it's just for the compliments/feedback, then surely that's empty since it's not the person's real work. I just don't get it. Kind of a twisted form of flattery to me I guess, but I'd really rather people didn't try to pass my work off as their own. Do people not realize that something posted on the internet is still copyrighted and the property of the author? 

Anyway. I got a TON of work done over the weekend on Venus Desiring, which is awesome. Managed to finish two whole chapters! Although, of course, I'm still 3-4 chapters away from the end because Hilary and Liam keep extending things. But it's getting good. I'm having a lot of fun with it and I think they are too. I'm really hoping to have the book finished and ready to edit by this upcoming weekend, but we'll see. Cross your fingers that I can get it done!

I've finished the next chapter of Being the Maid and submitted it.  YAY!   I'm particularly excited about this chapter because it's not at ALL what I planned when I first started writing this series.  Part of that is due to reader feedback on which characters they like the best and part of that is due to Bridget coming out and taking the reins from me in a completely unexpected way this chapter! I'm rather excited about it and we'll see what you all think when it's done, but if everyone else is as surprised as I am then hopefully people will like the chapter =) It's not as long as the previous chapter but there's a lot going on it in. The final chapter is going to be VERY long and so is probably going to take awhile. There's a lot to wrap up. WOOT!

Went to my first ever pro-football game tonight! FANTASTIC CHOICE for a first ever game! #HTTR!!!!!!!!!

Progress

I've had people asking about my progress with both Venus Desiring and Being the Maid lately so just wanted to do a quick update =)

I am focusing most of my attention on Venus Desiring, although I am also continuing to work on the Maid.  Since Desiring was supposed to be out in November, I feel like that's the more pressing one.  It's much longer than originally anticipated, which I think will be a good thing =) I'm only a few chapters away from the end (I think about three) and working really hard on completing them as quickly as possible. It's 85 - 90% done and then will just require quick editing and formatting for Kindle and it should be out by mid Dec.

Chapter 9 of The Maid is about 1/3 complete. Things are moving quickly and some interesting and unexpected things are happening. I'm letting the characters take complete control of the story line at this point because they keep coming up with more interesting stuff than I originally thought of.

At any rate, I expect both of these to be finished within the next couple of weeks! And now... back to work! *cracks whip*
