2013 in Review & Ch. 7 of Wolf

Good grief it's been a busy year for me!!!  But before we get started with that, make sure to check out Chapter 7 of Taken by the Wolf on Literotica =)  Ok... now onto the past year!

I started writing Marriage Training in January 2013... so it took almost an entire year for me to finish that one!  Pretty close to anyway =)  It's probably the most involved story I've written for Literotica.  And, as usual, one of my favorites.  I'm looking forward to 2014 and putting out the book version =)

I finished off the Poker Loser Trilogy and finally released Winning Hand, the last book of the trilogy, also in January.  That was a big deal for me because that was my second ever Literotica story and one of the favorites of people throughout the years.  Looking back at it, I always feel like I did a surprisingly good job considering that it was my second story, I didn't have a lot of experience in the stuff that I was writing about, and I didn't have a lot of experience writing period.  It holds up and that makes me happy.  Some of my older stuff I read it and I'm like "I must have written this for the Survivorphile contest when I was trying to churn out large quantities."  I mean, even then, I wrote pretty decent erotica, but the actual storylines weren't real interesting / the characters were kind of shallow.  But Poker Loser is still one of my favorite stories that I've ever written.

This past year I also finished off the Venus Rising Quartet, which was also very exciting for me because fans of the Venus School of Sex on Literotica were the reason I started publishing on Amazon in the first place.  And now it's done!  Which was sad, but exciting because it let me move onto Stronghold!

And speaking of original stories, I also wrote my first book that doesn't have anything to do with anything I've ever written for Literotica - not even tangentially.  Birching His Bride came out in March and the second book in the quartet, Dealing with Discipline quickly became my highest selling book EVER in its release month.  Apparently people like the rough Victorian punishment erotica with some romance!  Which made me happy because I like it too =)  If I could have gotten the third book out this month I would have, but I'm seriously sooooo close, so that'll be my first book of 2014.

I  need to send out MAJOR thank-yous to AquaPrincess, Fifi, Lydia and Amanda, all of whom helped me out during the past year with getting these books out and definitely had a huge impact on the quality of the books that were released.  I can't thank you all enough for your help over the past year.

So yeah.  This was a very busy and exciting year for me.  I had four books come out on Amazon, started making my books available for the Nook, wrote my most intensive series ever for Literotica, and in general just had a smashing good time.  Thank you all for seeing out this year with me... tomorrow I'll be posting my resolutions for the upcoming year and talking about how well (or badly) I did with 2013, despite all the successes I've written about in this post LOL.  There's a LOT to look forward to this year!

Have a wonderful New Years Eve and stay safe!

Last Chance to Vote!

Wow I can't believe it's almost 2014 already... that's just insanity!

If you haven't voted on the poll to the left - which Literotica story I should finish this year - make sure you do so now!  Homeschooled is in the lead by a fair margin, it's followed by From Terra and Tomboy Tease but Fantasy Weekend and Friendly Kidnapping aren't out of the running yet =)  It just depends on your votes!

Another chapter of Taken by the Wolf was submitted on Friday, so that should be out sometime this week... keep an eye out.

I'm 3/4 of the way finished with the last chapter of Seduction by Spanking - and I have a new name for it so that Amazon doesn't reject it out of hand... it's now going to be Taming His Ward.  Woot!  Once I'm done with the last chapter I have to write the epilogue, which is probably going to be about as long as a regular chapter this time and I'm SUPER excited about it because for the first time we're going to get something from Alex and Grace's perspectives!

So I'm hoping to have that book finished by next week and then I can start editing and it should be out sometime in January!  I'm aiming for by the 15th if not before.

Don't forget to vote for Lit and I'll keep you all updated on the book situation!

Poll - What 3 Lit Stories Should I Finish in 2014?

The poll is now available... sorry to any of you who tried to come back yesterday to vote!  Not surprisingly, time got away from me =)  But the poll is up now!  You can vote on multiple answers (although please don't vote on every single one because that's not going to help ;)

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

Merry Christmas, 2 Stories & A Poll!!!

Merry Christmas!!!  And if you don't celebrate Christmas then happy holidays and I still hope you have a wonderful day ;)  I love December.  It's a month of people thinking about others, thinking about family, and celebrating the end of another year.  Unfortunately this year hubby and I each have a family member in the hospital but it looks like they're both going to be okay and we're extremely grateful for that.  Might be in the hospital for Christmas, but all signs point to them being home later this week.

As a wonderful Christmas present, Literotica released two of my stories today!  Chapter 6 of Taken by the Wolf is out!  Alex earns his dinner =)  In chapter 7 it will be Bella's turn to earn hers... unless Alex can save her from it!  Looking forward to that.  The other story that came out is Emmie Does Anal which is a standalone (although I might eventually make it into a novel for Dark Angel, but if I do that's far in the future) and is about a girl getting it in the backdoor!  Shocking, right? hahaha.  Could have never guessed that from the title.  I came up with it when I was getting those odd comments from people who were anti-anal. 

Anyway... last but not least for today.... a poll!

On January 1 I'll announce what 3 stories I'm going to "resolve" to finish this year, based on your responses.  The poll is to the left, you can vote for multiple options.  Links to the stories are in the blogpost below.  You have until December 30 to vote and have a say in what I'll be writing for Lit this year!

Have a wonderful day =)

Taken by the Wolf Ch. 5

Alex's ordeal at the hands of Nurse Roche is now available in Chapter 5 of Taken by the Wolf!  Both Chapter 6 and a standalone story called Emmie Does Anal (gee... now what could that be about?) were submitted on Friday so those should be out sometime this week =)

I am getting VERY close to finishing Seduction by Spanking, if you haven't checked out the teaser from my previous blog post, just scroll on down to see! 

So, the other day I checked out my New Years Resolutions from last year and realized I've been a bit of a slacker on actually fulfilling some of them.  My Life Goals in particular.  I did lose some weight right before the Holiday season, because I was doing this competitive diet thing with some friends, but then... you know... the Holiday season.  LOL.  Gonna try to step up the exercising again starting next week.  I've been meaning to anyway.  But I haven't done any of the others.  Including going to Hooters or a strip club.  And I've only got a week and a half to do it and that week and a half is already filled with other stuff... so we'll see if I can fit them in.

On the upside... I did a little better with my writing goals!!!  I did finish both the Venus Rising Quartet and the Poker Loser Trilogy.  I also published one Stronghold book.  And then I started fail-boxing again.  I only finished two series on Literotica that I had previously started (Witch and After Bedtime) and I'm not sure that After Bedtime really counts because I hadn't initially intended that to be a series.  Also, I only entered one content on Literotica and I did not win it... and then I didn't manage to get anything together for any other contests.  *sigh*

I've heard that making New Years Resolutions more specific can be helpful, so I think that's what I'm going to do this year.  I've just gotta get thinking about it.  Especially when it comes to the 3 stories to finish... I've got a lot of options.  Might do a new poll to find out which ones you guys want me to finish the most, so start thinking about whether you want me to finish this year (in alphabetical order, cuz that's how they're listed on Lit):

- Caught Red-Handed (Gay Male)
- Chastity's Lessons (Interracial)
- Fantasy Weekend (BDSM)
- Friendly Kidnapping (Non-Con)
- From Terra (Sci-Fi & Fantasy)
- Homeschooled (First Time)
- Instruction (Incest / Taboo)
- Sick and Wrong (Multiple categories)
- Tomboy Tease (Non-Con)

So yeah.  Sometime next week there will be a poll about which you'd like to me to finish and I'll make the top 3 part of my New Years resolution.  That's what's going on with me... hope everyone had a good weekend!  And enjoy Chapter 5 of Taken by the Wolf!  I'll be curious of your opinions since I've never written something where a female takes the lead of the man quite like this...

Seduction by Spanking Teaser

So, I've been considering changing the name of this book, mostly because Amazon has been coming down hard on a lot of stories that have something like "spanking" in their title.  At the moment, Birching His Bride hasn't been pulled, thankfully, but if it is then I'll have to change the title of that one too.  I'm considering preemptively changing the title of this one so that it doesn't get rejected when I submit it.  Once I figure it out, I'll let you all know.

I'm only a few chapters away from the finish... there's a very good chance it will be out next month rather than February, which would be fantastic because I have a ridiculous amount of work to do on the next Stronghold book (which I've barely touched, I'll admit it).  Of course, I think part of the reason this one has come along so quickly is because I've been so focused on it rather than dividing my attention... and I'm okay with that.  I'll go with whatever seems to be working for me!  At any rate, I'm really close to finishing it and I'm super excited.

A few final updates before the teaser... Chapter 5 of Taken by the Wolf should be out any day now.  I'm about 2/3 of the way through Chapter 6 which will deal mostly with Bella and Alex, their differences of opinion and a choice that Alex will have to make.  Chapter 7 is going to give Alex a different kind of choice and we'll see what wins out - his pride or his protectiveness of Bella.  Oh I'm so naughty ;) hahahaha.  I'm also going to be working on some standalone stories while I work on Taken by the Wolf, because I know it's not for everyone and I want to make sure that there's more new work to read than just that series.  Working on a story at the moment and, as usual, I'll announce on here and Twitter when it's submitted/out =)  I'm enjoying the dark stuff, but if I don't balance it out with some light then who knows where my head will go! lol.

Also, a major thank you to those of you who have sent me some suggestions for Taken by the Wolf.  So nice to know I'm not the only one with a twisted mind.  And a HUGE thank you to Gemini who sent me a suggestion which has helped me figure out the ending in a way that should make sense to everyone and that I was struggling a bit with... he made my job SO much easier with his suggestion, everything in my head fell into place and I truly appreciate it.  Since I have no way of responding to him other than this blog... just wanted to mention it.

SO.  Onto the promised (unedited) teaser!  No sexy time in this one... and no men in this one!  One of my favorite parts about the current book is that Cynthia is so very different from the other female characters.  Eleanor thought she was rebellious and brazen?  Ha! LOL.  So here's a look at those two and their burgeoning friendship:

The house that Lord and Lady Hyde had rented was in an equally fashionable part of Bath as the Countess' residence, although the decor showed it to obviously be a house to let, unlike the Countess' which was obviously a home.  Still, it was quite beautiful and Cynthia found herself very quickly relaxed as she chatted with Eleanor, who seemed to be just as interested in Cynthia as Cynthia was in her.  Today the blonde was dressed quite fashionably in a blue and cream damask that brought out the bright color of her eyes and enhanced the golden blonde of her hair, the stylish cut making the most of her rather striking figure.

In contrast, Cynthia was wearing a dark pink dress that was fashionably cut, but much less modestly than Lady Hyde's.  She'd managed to get her own way on most of her dresses when she and the Countess had visited the modiste, and it wasn't until she sat next to Eleanor that she felt tawdry in comparison.  ButEleanor didn't seem to think so, she barely paid attention to what Cynthia was wearing, she was much more interested in questioning her about Lord Spencer and the state of the household. 

"He's not generally so stuffy," she assured Cynthia, her blue eyes sparkling with amusement.  "It was quite entertaining seeing him performing as a proper gentleman yesterday.  I've never seen him act quite like that to be honest."

"I think it's me," Cynthia said truthfully.  "He seemed very different from when he was just speaking with you and Lord Hyde... I mean..." Her cheeks flushed darkly to match her dress as she realized what she had just revealed.  Fortunately Lady Hyde wasn't upset, she laughed in genuine amusement. 

"Were you listening at the keyhole?"

"Ah... yes."  Giving the other woman a sheepish look, Cynthia shrugged her shoulders.  Normally she wasn't so loose-tongued, but Eleanor made her feel comfortable in a way that she'd never experienced before; it was just so easy to talk to her.  "I was curious about the Earl, he acts so differently around me that his brothers described."

"The Earl..."  Eleanor repeated, as if tasting the words and debating whether or not she found them to her liking.  "It's so hard to think of him like that... We grew up together.  My brother Hugh, Edwin and Wesley.  Out of all of them, Wesley's changed the least I think.  At least, I thought that until I saw how stuffy he was being yesterday."  She laughed again.  "He was certainly playing the Earl in front of you.  I wonder why."  

The intelligence in those bright, searching blue eyes belied the old adage that beauty came without brains.  Not that Cynthia had ever subscribed to that belief anyway, since she knew very well that she was considered beautiful and she had never thought of herself as anything other than clever. 

"We ah... may have not had the best introduction."  Unable to help it, Cynthia giggled conspiratorially, leaning in to tell Eleanor about running into Wesley in the street.  Under the other woman's excited urgings, she even told her about Mr. Carter, at which point Eleanor's face grew more solemn. 

"I've heard of him..." she murmured, sitting up straight with a rather worried expression.  "He doesn't have a very good reputation."

"The Countess told me," Cynthia said with a shrug.  "But he's never done more than kiss me.  And a bit of touching... above my waist," she added hastily, seeing Eleanor's shocked expression.  "It's just... it's so very exciting."

"I can imagine," Eleanor said, a little smile of fellow feeling crossing her face before she turned serious again.  "But, it's so much better to have that excitement with someone who truly cares about you.  Someone who you can trust."

It was true that it was sometimes tiresome to put off Mr. Carter, and the other gentlemen that Cynthia had kissed, from further importunities.  Of course, that was half the fun, letting them convince or seduce her into going just a bit farther.  But so far she hadn't met any that she could truly lose her head to, not the way she read about in novels or heard whispered about from the maids.  Perhaps trust was the missing ingredient?  After all, if she trusted a man, then she wouldn't feel the need to constantly keep an eye out on where his hands were going.  

"And Lord Hyde?  He cares about you?  You find this... excitement with him?"

Lady Hyde blushed and hesitated. 

"I'm sorry, I know it's personal..." Cynthia put on her wounded bird look.  "It's just that I don't have any one else to ask.  I certainly can't ask the Countess, she'd probably faint."

The look Eleanor gave her said that she didn't buy Cynthia's false despair at all, but there was no denying that her words were true enough.  "He does.  I'm fairly certain he does."  A faint flush grew in her cheeks.  "And I trust him, I always have, since I was a girl.  Before we married, I thought to find a man... I thought my ideal husband would be very different from him.  But now I can't imagine being married to anyone else.  I wouldn't want to be."

"And... and what do you do?"  Cynthia asked, her insides curdling with excitement.  She'd never spoken to anyone with the warm, wistful look that Eleanor had now.  Someone who was willing to explain some of the intricacies between a man and a woman with her.  All the Countess would tell her was what she shouldn't do, and while disobeying that had led to some fascinating discoveries, there was quite a bit that Cynthia was curious about, but which she wanted some more information on before exploring on her own.  "Does he touch you on your quim?  Men are always wanting to touch me there... it feels wonderful when I do it on my own, but I'm worried none of them would know what to do with it.  And what would I do if I got with child?"

"Good God..." Eleanor stared at her and Cynthia shrank into herself, suddenly worried that she'd ruined their friendship by saying too much.  What would Eleanor think of her now?  Would she disapprove and pull away?  Cynthia waited on tenterhooks, horribly afraid now that she'd exposed herself.  She didn't think she could bear it if Eleanor rejected her now.  The other woman's lips closed and then twitched in something like amusement and Cynthia found that she could suddenly breath a little easier.  "This is really... these are things that should be discussed before your wedding night.  And you absolutely should not be letting any gentlemen touch your... your quim.  You've ah... you've touched it yourself?"

"Oh yes," Cynthia said cheerfully, reassured that Eleanor was not going to boot her from the drawing room.  "Mother told me not to, you see.  And it's quite lovely.  I've thought about letting a gentleman touch it, but I don't want to get with child."

"That won't, but you shouldn't let them touch you there anyway.  Once they do they might try to go further, and if they put their... um, their rod into your quim then you will get with child," Eleanor said rather sternly.

"Their rod?"

Eleanor blushed and gestured to her groin area.  "Men have a... a rod where a woman has a quim."

"Oh, you mean a cock."

This time Eleanor burst out laughing, covering her mouth with her hands as Cynthia stared at her, slightly confused.  The amusement was contagious though, and she found herself smiling.  It was a rather absurd conversation, as well as wonderfully revealing.  And she'd learned a new word. 

"You are the most... confusing mix of innocence and too much knowledge," Eleanor said when her giggles finally subsided, although she was still smiling rather widely.  "It's going to get you into trouble.  How do you know what a cock is?"

"Mr. Carter told me when I asked what was pressing against me so hard when we kissed."

"Good grief," Eleanor said, rolling her eyes.  "He sounds like a complete scoundrel.  That word is rather ah... crude.  Rubbing it with your hand will get you ruined, but it won't get you with child.  You really shouldn't allow him to touch you though.  I know the Countess has asked Wesley to find you a husband, and once he has then you can explore to your heart's content."

"What about my mouth?  Will that get me with child?"


"Your mouth?"

Taken by the Wolf Ch. 4

Wow... so apparently Literotica either shortened the wait time or something because Chapter 4 of Taken by the Wolf is already available!  I didn't think it'd be out for another couple of days because there was several days between when the two chapters were submitted.

So... I'm rather enjoying the mixed reactions.  I wanted to go darker and I wanted to do things that I've never done before.

By now there seems to be a few things people are wondering so I'll just address those...

- Not every chapter is going to include MM sex, there will be some that do and some that don't

- The psychological aspect is as important to me as the physical and there are several mind fucks that I'm already planning out along the way

- I'm going to be a heck of a lot meaner to the characters than I have been since I wrote Sick and Wrong.  In some ways, I think that I was trying to do back then what I'm doing now, and write something where I can get all the really dark stuff in my head out.  Only (hopefully) I'm doing it better now =P  And the dark stuff has changed, it's not just about the painful stuff but also about the position that they're in.

- No characters will be irredeemably harmed in the writing of this story =P  I rather like Bella and Alex, although it might not seem like it at times considering what I'm going to do to them lol. 

- Yes Alex is a bit of an alpha male (okay, more than a bit) but to me that just makes the fact that he's going to have to learn to submit to someone kind of even better in the psychological messing kind of way.  What'll be fun is seeing how his desire to protect Bella actually clashes with his alpha-maleness =D

- I'll always give a little bit of a heads up on what the next chapter is about either once it's submitted or once the currently submitted chapter comes out, if I haven't submitted the next one already.  Since that's today... I'm still working on Chapter 5 and it's going to be Alex's experience with Nurse Roche.  Chapter 6 they'll be reunited, but then I'm going to mess with their heads again cuz I'm a bitch like that LOL.

Can I tell you all how much fun it is to be able to write something really dark and still have the potential for romance that I know people are going to be requesting, but not have to temper the bad stuff in order to accommodate the romance?  GAH!  It's awesome.  It's also a bit of a relief to be writing something that I know going into it is going to occasionally garner some reactions from people that aren't necessarily good... because I don't have to worry quite as much that EVERYONE is going to like ever chapter, although I do hope people keep reading because every chapter is going to be different and, while one chapter might not appeal to someone, the next one might.  This is also going to be one of my longer series, mostly because I have a lot of sadistic darkness to get out of me apparently =P

and then I'll move on to the next series which won't be nearly as rough.

Taken by the Wolf Chapter 3

Chapter 3 of Taken by the Wolf is now up on Literotica!  Going by the comments on Chapter 2 I don't think anyone realized where I was going to go with Chapter 3 so this should be interesting =P  Just remember... I warned you all that I'm trying some  completely new things ;)  Right now I'm about a third of the way through Chapter 5 and having quite a bit of fun with it, even though it's harder since I rarely write scenes where a woman is in charge of a man (Although it's probably good practice for Olivia's book).  Poor Alex... he's not at all submissive, but that just makes everything so much more interesting.  Chapter 4 should be coming out later this week =)

If you haven't already, make sure you pick up a copy of Consequences Part I, my newest Dark Angel release.  Right now it's 99 cents but when Part II comes out it's going to go up to $2.99.  And don't forget; reviews only take a minute and are much appreciated by yours truly!!!!

Later this week I'm going to put up a teaser for Seduction by Spanking which is coming right along =)  It makes me sooooooooooooo happy!  Wesley and Cynthia are really just too much fun... although I'm also looking forward to the fourth book and really digging into Alex and Grace's story.  I absolutely love being a writer.

New Release for Dark Angel: Consequences Part I

Okay... so in the middle of working on expanding the centaur story for Dark Angel, I realized that I have a couple of stories which would be much easier to revise / expand on and would be able to get them out faster.  One of them being what is now available on Amazon - Consequences Part I.  You'll recognize a lot of it from the Literotica version of Consequences because I didn't change as much in Part I as I'm going to in Part II (which is also part of the reason I was able to get it out so quickly).  Tomorrow it will be available for free, today and after that it's 99 cents until Part II comes out when the price'll go up to $2.99.  Please don't forget to leave a review!!!! =)

***Edit (12/14/2013) - Sorry, I just checked and saw that Consequences is still running for 99 cents today; when I checked on the promotion apparently I accidently scheduled it for 12/15, not 12/14, so tomorrow it will be free.  Sorry for any confusion!***

After much hemming and hawing I've decided to continue running Demon Duo at 99 cents, despite what I said before, because it's a rather short novella and I think I'm going to leave that one and To Spank a Schoolgirl as cheapos for people to check out Dark Angel's kind of writing while the other books will eventually move up in price whenever a new one comes out.

In other news... chapter 3 of Taken by the Wolf was submitted to Literotica on Tuesday and I'm hoping it comes out soon (possibly over the weekend?).  I'm already about 3/4 of the way through Chapter 4 and I have to admit... I'm having a lot of fun with already doing things very differently with Bella and Alex then I've done with any of my other characters.  Chapter 3 continues what's happening with them with the Wolf, during Chapter 4 they're separated and I'm doing some fun (well, fun for me, def not for Bella) medical play stuff.  Makes Dr. Banks look like a nice guy.  Hoping to finish Chapter 4 today and get it submitted before Chapter 3 even comes out... I'm doing shorter chapters than I did for Marriage Training, but that SHOULD just mean that I'll be getting them out faster.  =)

Seduction by Spanking is coming along faster than I thought it would.  It's just FLYING out of me at this rate, which is fantastic.  I think I've only got about 5-6 chapters left to write!  I'm hoping that maybe I'll be able to get it out a month early (January rather than February).  It'll depend on whether or not my 'writing flow' keeps up, but at the moment it's still going strong!

Let it Snow!

Had half of a snow day today!  Which was nice.  Got some extra writing done =)

I'm about 2/3 of the way through the next chapter of Taken by the Wolf and it's going very quickly!  Which is awesome.  I'm going in a very different direction than I think some people realized, going by the comments on Chapter 2, but that's good... I'd hate to fall into the trap of doing the same thing over and over.  Hopefully people still like it even though it's different.  I'm hoping to finish it either tomorrow or Thursday and get it submitted.

As usual, my book characters have been jerking me around a bit, showing me that they're really the ones in charge.  That's always fun though because it leads to unexpected scenes and fun things that I think make the book more real since it's not exactly what I plotted out from the beginning.  Fortunately, unlike Angel and Adam, my Domestic Discipline characters only seem to be making smaller changes within the scenes that don't actually change the rest of the outline... just the scene.  And I'm having SO much fun with it, which I hope means that it will be particularly fun to read!

I'm still waiting for Amazon to decide whether or not they're going to publish my next Dark Angel book.  They seem really on the fence about it, although I've now changed both the title and the book description.  They've def got more stringent standards about erotica now.  *sigh*  I'm going to get it out eventually, one way or another.  Definitely trying my hardest at any rate.

Good news on the Nook front - Birching His Bride, Dealing With Discipline and Gentleman's Maid are now all available for the Nook!  Along with all the previously mentioned titles =)  I don't know if I'm going to be able to get any Dark Angel titles up there; B&N is even more stringent than Amazon, and both of them are cracking down lately.

Sigh... wearing my fingers to little nubs with all the writing I've been doing lately, but I'm in the mooooood... and when the mood wave comes, I've gotta catch it and ride it out for as long as possible!

Taken by the Wolf Ch. 2

Guess what came out today!!! YaY!  Chapter 2 of Taken by the Wolf is now up on Literotica =) Pretty excited about it.  I'm already working on Chapter 3 of course, which is going to be a continuation of Alex and Bella's first encounter with the Wolf.  =D  It's going to be a loooooong first day for them.  But I'm enjoying it, although I'm not sure they are ;)  Hopefully you all are enjoying it too!

I've got another book for Dark Angel HOPEFULLY set to come out in the next couple of days... it's basically Consequences from Literotica but with some revisions / changes, Part I has less new material, Part II will have a lot more (plus a different ending).  It's going to be called Uncle Max.  Amazon has already rejected it once, I think because of the initial title that I tried to use (had the word 'slut' in it), hopefully it will accept it this time... bah.  The Dark Angel stuff is a little bit harder because Amazon's guidelines are so very vague. *sigh*  Hopefully I'll have good news about that either tomorrow or Monday.

And in the meantime, I'm working hard on Spanking by Seduction and I think I'm almost halfway through it!  Maybe... if the characters don't push me to make it longer than I originally planned.  It is a little bit harder because now I've got all the characters involved in the storyline rather than just focusing on two at a time.  It is fun though and I like seeing how all their stories intertwine and all their actions affect the other couples =) 

Anyway, so that's what's going on... hope you all enjoy Chapter 2 of Taken by the Wolf!  Let me know what you think =)

Little Spurts

I submitted the second chapter of Taken by the Wolf on Tuesday, so it's likely that it'll be out either this weekend or early next week.

Still working hard on Seduction by Spanking and the next work for Dark Angel... if I'm lucky both will be coming out sometime in January / February.

I'm also working on trying to get my stuff out on the Nook - both the Poker Loser Trilogy and the Venus Rising Quartet are now available there!  The two books that are out in the Domestic Discipline Quartet will be coming soon.  Please leave a review if you have a minute!

There's fresh ginger in our fridge.  I'm super tempted to get hubby to try out figging on me but also kind of scared to.  That's half the fun though isn't it?

Considering creating a Facebook page but I don't know if anyone would friend me LOL. 

Going away this weekend for some TLC alone time with hubby for his birthday.  YAY!  So probably won't be updating the blog again till next week unless I see that the next chapter of Wolf has come out, but since I don't think I'll have internet that may or may not be happening.

Ok. Time to get my ass in gear and get to the day job.  I wish I was still a student so that I could spend all summer vacation writing.

Attention All Nook Readers!

Okay everyone...

I know I've been neglecting the Nook readers.  I finally figured out how to self-publish on their site (I don't know if they've just made it easier since the last time I tried to figure it out or what) and I have some books available!!!

The entire Poker Loser Trilogy is now available on Nook.  I'll be working on getting the Venus Rising Quartet uploaded next, probably later this week, and then Gentleman's Maid and the Domestic Discipline books that are out.  Stronghold will be available in January, at the same time it goes live on Smashwords.

Sorry it took me so long to get my butt in gear about this =/  But it's in gear now and it shouldn't be too hard for me to keep the Nook updated with new books as well!

Little Extras Just For You!

So, I like to think that reading my blog is worthwhile for all of you who do, but I also like to think that one of the reasons it IS worthwhile is because you get to find out little things about the characters / books that you wouldn't otherwise get to know.

Just in case you didn't know, I have Pinterest Boards for all of my books and I currently have a complete Marriage Training board (now that the story is complete) if you want to see all the characters who were featured in it =)  After it comes out as a book the board name will change to reflect the series and I'll start adding other pictures as I work on the series, but at the moment, it's a completed board.

If you read Stronghold and were completely sidetracked by the description of the salted caramel butter bars... guess what?!  They're a real thing!  I really did find them on Pinterest.  I really did make them.  And the conversation between Leigh and Angel as they eat them is remarkably similar to that of my best friend and I.  She came over for a girls' day the first time I made them.  Funny enough, like Leigh, if I remember correctly, she was having man troubles that weekend too.  And yes, the butter bars made it all better.  LOL.

As you know, I've started on Taken by the Wolf and the first chapter is up.  I'm about a third of the way through the second chapter.  Comments are already starting to make me think about things that I hadn't really focused on yet (like the Wolf's motivations and why the Moon families let him get away with it) and I've come up with some cool answers (I think) that will be revealed as the story goes along. 

This past weekend I didn't get a ton of writing done, but I did get some done, all on Seduction by Spanking.  I'm really hoping to get that out sometime in February if not before.  And it's going really well.  I'm having fun expounding on the previous characters' relationships, developing Wesley and Cynthia's and forwarding the plot line for the fourth book between Alex and Grace a little bit.  Yay!  And in the meantime, I'm letting Rick and Maria percolate in my head a little bit because she's having a bit of a personality crises, but I think she'll be falling in line soon and then I can get started in earnest... although I have already written the first bit of the book anyway.  And yes, there is a picture of her up on the Stronghold pinterest board if you're interested in taking a peek. I've got all the characters from Stronghold up there as well.

So those are my fun little tidbits for you!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend... hopefully I'll have good news about submitting Chapter 2 of Taken by the Wolf by the end of this week!

Thanksgiving!

I love Thanksgiving.  Not quite as much as I love Christmas, but pretty close.  Mostly because I see a lot of people who take large chunks of their lives for granted and I like to think that today, maybe, they look around and realize all the blessings they have and they are appreciative of them and of the people who bring those blessings to them.

So this year... I want to go over some of the things I'm particularly thankful for.

I'm thankful towards Literotica for being such a wonderful platform for providing stories and entertainment.  The internet is truly an amazing place, and as frustrated as I can get sometimes with the website (and especially how long it takes my chapters to post), there are people behind the scenes who work hard on it and make it a wonderful and open place where all sorts of people who are interested in many different things can gather together.  And it allows us to reach out and find each other and say "Hey... I'm not alone... there's a lot of other people interested in the same kinky shit as me!"  I think that's wonderful.

I'm thankful for my fans... for the people who have left me comments and sent me emails, all of which keep me motivated to keep writing (honestly, I'm a feedback whore... you put in feedback and the writing machine works better!).  I'm incredibly thankful for those of you who started pushing me to make stuff available on Amazon last year.  While I will probably never be able to quit my day job, it's SUCH an incredible boost for me to know that I am a published writer and that people actually WANT to read what I'm putting out there.  I absolutely do not take it for granted and I know that I wouldn't be doing that if it wasn't for all of you.  I'm especially thankful to those of you who read this blog and continue to make me feel like I'm interesting and worthwhile =)

I'm especially thankful towards those of you who leave me reviews on Amazon and Smashwords.  It only takes a minute, but it makes a huge difference to me.  Even the people who leave reviews like "ugh, why would any woman want to be spanked?!" leave me with a good laugh because hey... sometimes stupid people are so dumb it's funny (I mean seriously, how hard it is to read a book description before you buy it?).

I'm thankful for my husband, who is ever supportive of me (and helping me with research ;)  I'm especially thankful of my friends and family, who know what I do and, whether or not they know my penname, think it's awesome.

And I'm thankful for the never ending stories that are running through my head, the people who constantly give me suggestions and ideas for new stories and on how to improve the stories I'm putting out there, and for the many little worlds that I get to inhabit and share with all of you.  I won't lie, I understand that it's a gift and not one that everyone is blessed with.  I just happy to be uncommonly lucky, and even more lucky that I type REALLY freaking fast and enjoy writing.  I'm also thankful that I have a day job that allows me to keep doing what I love on the side.

So yeah.  There's a lot to be thankful for... what about you?

Taken by the Wolf

YAY!  Literotica got the first chapter of my new series, Taken by the Wolf, up and out before Thanksgiving!!!!  I find that very exciting because I wasn't sure whether or not they would =)

Super happy... hopefully people will leave feedback (*hint*hint*)... what's already there is encouraging! 

Anyway, that's all I have to say today ;)  Hope everyone that's celebrating has a good holiday weekend!  And for any of you that are celebrating this year's once-in-a-lifetime event, Happy Hanukka!  (For those of you who don't know, I say once-in-a-lifetime because the next time it coincides with Thanksgiving it will be the year 7-something!)

Moving On

Been a while since I rambled...

Lately there have been some comments left on either Amazon stories or Lit that make me face palm.  With Amazon it's usually because they say something in their comment that they didn't like about the book, that if they'd just read the book description or the Author's note they would have known before even BUYING the book lol.  There was one who didn't like that Dealing With Discipline had so many spankings and punishments and didn't understand why the women would be aroused by it... um... did you even LOOK at the book description?  On Lit... for some reason my Loving Wives stories have been getting a bit more attention again and people have been commenting on those - my favorite was the one who said that the husband should have gone to get professional help to deal with his issues rather than throwing his wife into infidelity.  Um... then it wouldn't have been a Loving Wives story, would it? LOL.  I do love it when people act like the characters might be real, but sometimes it goes a little far.

Still, gives me a pretty good laugh even as I face palm.

I truly do enjoy constructive criticism, but there's a lot of criticism that comes my way that either isn't at all constructive or shows me that the person giving it entirely missed the point of the story.  La.  But that's just part of writing, I suppose.  It was like that in my English classes as well (I was a creative writing focus... shocking right?  I always wonder what my professors would think of what I did with my degree hahahahaha).  The nice thing about having written for a class was that part of it was learning how to deal with criticism, constructive and otherwise, and also how to give it.

Been feeling a bit bad lately because I can't read as many other people's stories as I would like to.  There are a lot of authors out there that I'd like to spend more time checking out, especially on Lit, but I just don't have the time.  And when I do have a bit of free time, my first thought is usually "I should really work on a story."

And then of course I have my social life and the holidays and blah blah blah.  Nerding out tonight and going to see the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special - the Day of the Doctor - in THEATERS!  WOOT! Because sometimes I just need to take a break from the sexy stuff.  And also because I'm a giant nerd.

Speaking of the sexy stuff... I'm waiting on pins and needles for the first chapter of Taken by the Wolf to be released on Lit.  I'm dying to know what people think.  After writing a super popular story like Marriage Training turned out to be, I'm always nervous about starting a new one.  Will people like it as much?  If they don't, will they be mean about it?  lol.  Which I think might be part of why I chose to write Wolf instead of the other series I was considering, which was about a family set in Victorian times.  I wanted to get as far away from Marriage Training as possible and write about something so completely different that it would be impossible to compare them.  So we're set in the future, instead of the past, there's not a school involved (I do like those school storylines, don't I?), and I'm already planning for a bit of a love story but there's also a tried and true villain!

I should warn you all, there's going to be quite a bit of exploration - on my part - in Wolf.  There's going to be MF sex as well as MFM, MM, MMF, FF, etc.  Pretty much every combination I could possible do.  I'm also going to explore a bunch of fetishes / kinks that I haven't really done as much with in the past, and lots that I have - plenty of bondage, anal, whips and chains, but also electricity, fisting, cock & ball torture, age-play, pet-play, medical play, etc.  However, I will be staying away from blood and needle play and I don't think I'll be doing golden showers or anything.  But lots of mindfucks!  Honestly, I think I'm going to enjoy the psychological stuff as much as the physical.

Dammit... now I've got myself all excited about getting feedback again, because I'm talking about the story and I don't know when Lit is actually going to release the first chapter!  Bah.  LOL.  I'm just dying to know what people think.  And in the meantime, I'm also working on the second chapter, as well as Seduction by Spanking (I think I'm about a fourth of the way through), a second book for Dark Angel about centaurs, and I've started the very beginning of Rick Winter's book, Taming the Tease, as well as a couple other small projects that I give my attention to when I can.  Bah.  Sometimes I think it's amazing my head doesn't explode.

Now Available: Final Chapter of Marriage Training!

Both happy and sad!  The final chapter of Marriage Training is now out on Literotica!

I am sad to say goodbye to Gabriel and Vivian... but at the same time I'm also excited to be moving on to my next project.  And I do love seeing how people feel about the ending.  This particular story ended up being quite a bit more romantic than I originally planned... hopefully I ended up marrying the romantic part and the darker parts well.  Cuz I had wanted it to be a lot darker.

I've already submitted the first chapter of my next series, Taken by the Wolf, to Lit... so hopefully that'll be out next week!  Between the holiday contest and Thanksgiving, who knows... but one can hope.  Sooooo looking forward to that one, mostly because I already know I'll be able to include romance for those soft at heart out there, but that it will in no way detract from the darker stuff and the mind fuck that I'm going to have going on.  Very much looking forward to it!

If you haven't checked out my previous two blog posts... def do cuz you're missing out!  I've got a new release under a new penname (and thank you Sir Nick for writing a review!!!!) and yesterday I posted a teaser for Seduction by Spanking, the third book in the Domestic Discipline Quartet, which is coming along wonderfully.

So yeah... lots to enjoy!

Teaser: Seduction by Spanking

Just as promised, it's teaser week!  I couldn't wait until Thanksgiving to share another little peek of Cynthia and Wesley with you!  Next teaser will probably give a glimpse into one of the other couples.  Both of them have bits of their story that aren't finished yet and so are continuing into this book.  Right now I'm working on a particularly intriguing scene between Edwin and Eleanor... he's agreed to give up control in the bedroom for once and she's taking full advantage of it.  I'm not sure how long he'll last though!  Hahahaha.

By the way, if you haven't had a chance yet, check out yesterday's blog... I've got a new penname and a new release under that name.  It's not free anymore, but it's still only 99 cents for now!  I'm sorry to those who don't have Kindles (I've missed you Gem!) =/   Someone did tell me that even without a Kindle, if you buy Kindle items you can read them if you have the google cloud?  Not sure if people feel that's a viable option, but it's supposed to work that way I think.

Anyway. Back to the matters at hand... teaser time!  Enjoy =)

Sighing, Cynthia trotted gamely after Lord Spencer, frowning down at her dress as she did so.  She'd never been so easily dismissed by a man, especially not with her bosom so exposed.  Men did like her bosom, she'd found, and most of them were easily distracted when given a good view of it.  Lord Spencer had looked, but only for a moment and then he'd moved on to other things.
Maybe he was one of those men who preferred other dishes?
He certainly didn't seem the type though.  Of course she was only going by rumors about the men in question, but they did seem to dress a great deal fancier than Lord Spencer.  The Earl looked as if he didn't care a fig for his appearance, at least not when it came to style.  Though she thought he might be the most dashingly attractive man she'd ever seen.
Tall, shoulders as broad as a soldiers, and those pants hugged his legs tightly enough that unless he was wearing some very clever pads, he had most superbly muscled legs she'd ever seen.  Too bad he was apparently a stuffed shirt despite his roguish reputation and dress.
When they reached his study, Lord Spencer didn't turn to look at her until he'd reached his desk.  
"Close the door."  Once she had, he nodded at the chair in front of his desk.  It was a large, cushy armchair with broad arms.  More than once she'd snuck into the study for a quiet place to read, on those rare occasions when she was in the mood.  The chair was incredibly comfortable, not to mention welcoming.  
From his position leaning against the desk it would also give him quite a view down into her cleavage.  Cynthia smiled.  Maybe he wasn't as immune to her as he appeared.  That was a nice thought.  Although he just scowled at her even more when he saw her smiling. 
With another sigh, she moved across the room and settled down into the chair.  Again his eyes flicked down into her bosom and then away before coming back to her face.  It didn't look as though he was having any trouble keeping his gaze away from her exposed skin either.  
Humph.
"Explain yourself."
"Explain myself?" she asked rather wonderingly.  How did one explain oneself?  She was just... herself.
Lord Spencer glared at her.  "Where were you, who were you with and why did you go?"
Oh, explain her actions.  Nearly as difficult as explaining herself when it came right down to it.  "I was out, with no one, because I was bored."
She'd found, over the years, that it was best to keep things simple when she lied.  The more vague she was and the less she had to remember, the easier it was to stick to her story.
Unfortunately Lord Spencer just looked even angrier.  Quicker than a snake he had his hand around her arm and she found herself lifted out of the chair, and just as quickly yanked her back down so that she was over his lap.  Squealing, she threw her hands out in front of her, pressing them against the ground so that she didn't slide right off of his thighs.  An iron bar was placed across her back, holding her securely in place, and her skirts were thrown up, followed by a quick jerk of fabric that pulled down her drawers.
SMACK!

"OUCH! Stop!"  Outraged, Cynthia bucked, but it was completely useless as his hard palm came down on the other side of her buttocks to give her a matching handprint.

New Release: Demon Duo

ANNOUNCEMENT!

I now have an alternate personality.

This is something that I've been wanting to do for a REALLY long time and have been trying to get my crap together for almost half a year now to get it done.  A while ago I noticed that there are a LOT of short stories on Amazon that are selling for the same price as my full length books.  And I was like man... what do I do to get into that market?

Well, a lot of it is the darker side of erotica, or the kinkier side - the breeding fantasies, dubious consent, supernatural creatures, pseudo-incest, etc.  Really it doesn't have anything on Lit, but the quality is supposed to be better.  So I've been working on revamping some of my Literotica works, which is nothing new, but it's aimed at a particular crowd.  Eventually I want to add some fetish works as well - breeding erotica, age-play, pet play, etc.

My new penname is Dark Angel and her first book is out - the Demon Duo.  It's a two in one and for today and today only, it's free.  That's the bonus of reading my blog.  Even after today it's only 99 cents... until I get the next book out.  Then it goes up to $2.99 like the other shorts in this genre.  Personally I'm not a fan of pricing books that high when they're short, but it seems to be working for other people, so I figured why not try it?  But new books by Dark Angel will always be 99 cents until the next book comes out.  I figure that's the best way to do it. 

Anyway, pick up the freebie (and please leave a review!) and I hope you enjoy my new alter-ego!  New books for Dark Angel will be announced here and on twitter, just like Golden Angel's books are.

Check out Jacqueline George!

Jacqueline George, who's a delightful writer, has kindly provided me with a synopsis and some links to her latest! 


 
I like the idea of Europe. Yes, that might sound pretentious, but it’s just so full of beautiful and interesting things. I live on Cape York in Queensland. That’s about the same size as Michigan or the UK, but we only have ~20,000 people. From here to the nearest supermarket is about 150 miles. (We do have a mini-market in the village, an absolute gold mine for the chain that owns it because there is no competition...)

We drive past miles and miles of nothing to get to Cairns, our nearest real town. When we go to Europe on holiday, how many villages, people, cities, international borders would we have passed in the same distance?

Hidden away in the corners of the countryside are places where people have been living for thousands of years. They walk past a thousand year old cathedral every day on the way to work, and they don’t even notice! They have art galleries everywhere. They have lots of caf├ęs that really, really want you to sit down over a coffee and cognac to discuss the world, art, politics...

Ok, so I’m being romantic, but Europe does romance too! Sophisticated food, and romance to go with it? Just hold me back! I swear, if only they had coconut palms like my garden, I would live in a garret and eat dried bread just for the fun of living there.

Europe in Love is just me putting some of my passions down on paper, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the writing. It is a mix of ancient and modern, fact and fantasy, and you can read an excerpt here.

Better still, click this Christmas Present to claim your free gift - a copy of Jacqueline and Another Sexy Year and that will be a lot of fun!
 

 

Jacqueline lives in Far North Queensland, on the shore of the Coral Sea. She keeps herself busy with her cats and garden, and by writing books - some of which are far too naughty for her own good. You can find out more about Jacqueline and her books at www.jacquelinegeorgewriter.com 
 
 
So that's something fun to check out while you're waiting for Marriage Training to finally come out on Literotica =) In the meantime, I'm still working hard on Seduction by Spanking which is coming along nicely!  Cynthia is just devilish and it's so nice to be with the rest of the cast again; I'm looking forward to sharing a teaser!

Finito!

The last chapter of Marriage Training was submitted last night.  So hopefully it'll be out sometime next week, although Lit is running its Holiday Contest right now and sometimes stories take longer to come out when there's a contest going on.

Honestly... I'm not really sure what the response to the last chapter is going to be.  It ended before I thought it was going to.  I really thought there might be more story to tell, but I got to the end and realized that's exactly what it was... the end.  I even tried to write an epilogue and it just didn't work - Gabriel was done.  I think I could have gotten Vivian to cooperate, but Gabriel just wasn't having any of it.  Not sure why.  I decided not to push it though, because I'd rather have it end and have people going "noooo why did it end there, I want more!" than to force something and have people like "wow... that kinda sucked... it felt really off."

But I really did enjoy the last chapter.  Gabriel had me creaming my panties at points, even when I was getting frustrated at how slow he was taking things (man has some serious self-control).

I'm back to concentrating on Seduction by Spanking, YAY!  Cynthia, as ever, is amusing the heck out of me.  I'll probably post a new teaser to get everyone in the mood sometime later next week.  Heh.  Maybe on Thanksgiving, just to amuse myself.  We'll see.  It'll depend somewhat on how much writing I get done between now and then =)

I've also already gotten started on the beginning of my next series, The Wolf, and I'm already enjoying getting to do something that is definitely dark.  Yeah,  I'm going to work some romance in, but this is definitely going to be different from anything I've ever written before and I'm really excited about that.  I want to play around more with mind fucks, as well as exploring some more extreme stuff, and I'm finally going to have the opportunity to do that... *happy dance*  And hopefully people won't judge me too badly for the f.u.s. my my comes up with lol.

Anyway... that's what's going on right now... keep your eyes out for the last chapter of Marriage Training, although of course I'll announce both here and on Twitter when it's out =)

Dammit, Just Bang Already!

I sometimes feel like yelling that at my characters.  Which is silly, because I know the build-up is a big part of the enjoyment of a story, but it can also be frustrating when I want to move on to the next part and I can't because I still have to get past the big sex scene and they're taking their sweet time about it.  Playing games, as it were. 

In case you're wondering, Gabriel has decided to seriously take his time with Vivian and move at a much slower pace than I had originally intended.  The two of them are just playing with each other now and I'm like... okay guys... let's try to pick it up a little... 

*sigh*

Gabriel just REALLY likes foreplay as far as I can tell.  

And it's not that I don't want to give them the time to have a great scene, I do, I'm just feeling impatient and slightly pressured because I know people are waiting on the chapter and I lost some time working on it because I was on vacation and so it's already going to be a longer wait than usual... not to mention the fact that I'm so close to the end that my brain has already started working on the next story a little bit.  And I want to be able to spend more time working on Seduction by Spanking.  

I'm getting back into the groove of writing which is good =)  Thanks to everyone who leaves me comments / feedback in between stories, because that definitely helps to keep me motivated to keep writing!  Doesn't matter whether it's on a story that I am currently working on or that I wrote years ago, it absolutely makes a difference in how much writing I get done during the week.  

Hopefully I'll finish the last chapter of Marriage Training and get it submitted by the end of this week... that's the goal that I'm trying to focus on at the moment =)

Thank You Vets!!!!

Thank you veterans... I can't tell you how much your service is appreciated.

I've got a friend overseas right now that should be home in a little over a week and I am just SO incredibly thankful that every time he's been stationed overseas he's come home safe and unharmed, but I know what he and all the other members of our armed forces risk on a daily basis.

Don't forget to show your love for these incredibly giving and wonderful members of our community, who make the incredible sacrifice of being away from their family and friends on a regular basis, for far less pay than they deserve, less support than they deserve in terms of medical and psychological care, risking the fact that the government might screw them over in the end, and for very little in the way of reward.

Also, and this is just as important, don't forget to show your love for the family members of our armed forces.  The spouses, whose bravery in giving themselves over to such a risky love and such a long distance one, the children who grow up without their mother or father by their side, and the parents who support their children in these risky endeavors.

Thank you, all of you, for your sacrifices, your passion and your service.

Last Chapter of Marriage Training & the Future

So I am now working on what I think is going to be the last chapter of Marriage Training!  At least for Literotica.  Eventually (once I finish it) it will be coming out in book form, completely expanded and with a lot more going on that wasn't part of the Literotica story (such as some of the behind-the-scenes stuff with Dr. Monroe and Mrs. Banks that Vivian was unaware of).  Woo-hoo!!!!  I'm super excited about finishing up the story, although a little sad as well, but as with Venus, I can still be happy since it's not like I'm going to be completely saying goodbye to the characters.

I figured this would be a good time to talk a little bit about what's coming up in the future (although of course I don't have exact dates for everything yet, although I do have some goals).  After I'm done with Marriage Training for Literotica I'm going to be starting a new series that I haven't quite decided on a name for.  Rather than the past it's going to be set in the future, although I wouldn't call it Sci-Fi or Fantasy.

The basic premise is that the richest families have moved to an installation on the moon, while Mafia-like regimes have taken over business on Earth (which is where the poor live).  One of those regimes is led by a man known as The Wolf - occasionally the scions of the Moon Families will visit the Earth (for culture / education / vacations, etc.) and be kidnapped by The Wolf.  No ransom, and everyone is returned eventually, sometimes after a few days, sometimes after a few months.  Those who come home after a few days always talk of wild sexual orgies and deviance (those who are kept for a few months never talk about it), and it's become a popular past-time for the younger generation to risk The Wolf and take their vacation on Earth.  99% of them are never chosen to become one of his toys, but the inherent danger makes it fun.  He only takes individuals and couples, so traveling in a group provides some protection.  Alex is on vacation with his girlfriend, best friend and best friend's girlfriend Bella, when he and Bella discover their significant others cheating on them.  Angry, they leave the hotel and are on their way to the space shuttle port when they're knocked out by gases... they've been taken by The Wolf who is intrigued and delighted to have amusement in the form of a couple who is not a couple.

I'm rather excited about it.  I'm finding that the set-up is making it easier for me to plot out a lot of the darker stuff that I've been wanting to play with and haven't been able to... and also do more with mind-fucking, which I've enjoyed dabbling in during Marriage Training.

For books... next up on the docket is Book 3 of the Domestic Discipline Quartet, Seduction By Spanking, featuring Wes & Cynthia which should be out this winter.  Book 4, featuring Alex and Grace, I'm aiming to release Summer 2014.

Stronghold series!
Taming the Tease - featuring Rick Winter has the goal-release date of Spring 2014.
Protector - featuring Lexie & Patrick in Fall 2014
Bound to the Past - featuring Andrew
Future books will feature Michael, Jared, Leigh and Olivia (order undecided)

Stronghold novellas
Outside Stronghold - featuring non-BDSM romance stories about the siblings of the Stronghold characters including Jake (Lexie's brother), Percy and Captain (Angel's brothers), etc.
The Venus Effect - featuring some of the characters from The Venus School of Sex and what happened to them after they returned home, including Charity & Nick, and Paul returning to Fiona.

The Society of Sin series - although Marriage Training is not the first book chronologically, it will be the first book published in this series.  Chronologically speaking, it will fit in between Rex of the Dark and Dark Decisions (All of these are working titles and subject to change).  Stories will range from BDSM to swinging to Loving Wives themes.  There were some wild house parties and orgies back in the Victorian era and I'm looking forward to putting my own spin on them.

Marriage Training - revised and greatly expanded from its Literotica version
The Dark Marquess - Audrey Prescott is hired by the Marquess of Salisbury as a governess for his two daughters, Daphne and Hazel.  A sensual beauty, Audrey has always had trouble with her baser instincts, especially when it comes to attractive men, but she's always resisted because most of her employers have been married - although that hasn't stopped the ladies of the house from eventually firing her when their husbands won't stay away.  A widower with two daughters seems to be the perfect solution, although once Audrey is installed in the household she soon realizes that the whispers about the Marquess' wild reputation and deviant behaviors barely touch the surface of the truth.  Can she protect her charges from the decadence and dangers of the Marquess' household when she's so attracted to them, and the Dark Marquess, herself?
Sold to Sin - Daphne's story
Choosing Darkness - Hazel's story
Resisting Rex - Evangeline's story (first introduced in The Dark Marquess)
Dark Decisions - Emily's story (first introduced in Marriage Training)

Society of Sin Novellas - a series of novellas featuring some of the side characters and their various relationships, will include swinging, lesbianism, gay male, and BDSM stories.

So yeah.  That's... pretty much enough to cover the next couple of years.  Although, of course, there will be other things that I'm working on for Literotica.  But this is what's going on in my head book-wise.

I'm Back! & MT Ch. 18

So it turns out that Marriage Training Ch. 18 did not come out while I was away (weird that it took so long) but it IS out now, so if you have some time today check it out and leave me a comment =)  Now that we're away from the school entirely I'm curious as to what people think!  It's always a little weird when a story's basic structure changes after so long of being the same. 

Thank you so much to everyone who has been sending me feedback about Stronghold!  I'm soooo glad that people seem to be enjoying it =)

Did notice on Amazon that someone mentioned I didn't really go into more about Michael & Leigh (the reviewer said Leslie but I assume meant Leigh) at the end of the book, but there's a reason for that... they're not going anywhere.  They're part of the Stronghold gang now and they're going to have their own books to finish up their stories!  Woot!

Anyway.  I had an AMAZING time on my vacation.  I did not bring my laptop (which was probably a good decision) and so I got no work done, but I am feeling completely refreshed and hopefully I'll be able to jump right back into writing tomorrow.  Cruising is the way to go!!!!  I also got to swim with Dolphins which has been a lifelong dream of mine (when I was a kid I wanted to be a dolphin trainer) and it was seriously the most amazing experience of my life to date (not that I'm that old, but in the past 30 years I've done some pretty amazing things and this one definitely is now at the top!).  Hubby and I had a wonderful time, we went with friends and it was a ton of fun as well as being able to take time out to be romantic and get some QT and TLC ;)

Don't forget to keep leaving me reviews / comments... they're super helpful for future works!!!! =)

Stronghold Now Available on Amazon.com!

HOORAY!

Amazon fixed the problem (and it turns out there were a LOT of authors having it so it was nice to know that it wasn't just me - although it did seem to be mostly indie authors and small publishers having the issue... but I'm not sure I'd find that suspicious if it hadn't been for that petition going around about stuff... anyway, I digress) and Stronghold is now available on Amazon.com!


Very excited!!!!  Remember it's only 99 cents until I get back from vacation so you've got a little over a week to purchase it at the discounted price =)  After that, the price goes up to $2.99.

Please, as ever, if you have a minute leave me a review!  Good, bad (please include constructive criticism ;), I'm dying to know what people think of my first ever standalone full length novel!  Granted, yes, it does have quite a few references to the Venus Rising Quartet, but you absolutely don't have to read those in order to read and enjoy this one =)  So that makes it different from anything I've ever written before.

Also in good news... I submitted Chapter 18 of Marriage Training to Literotica today, so that should come out sometime next week while I'm on vacation =)  I won't be here to blog about it so keep an eye out!
