It's Raining Rambles


Too much rain in my area the past few days. Not a fan. Gives me a headache and makes it hard for me to write. And maybe snow tomorrow? Although I could do with a day at home. IF the office closes. *sigh* ah winter doldrums...

Despite all that, I am making progress. I'm about 3/4 of the way through Winning Hand, a couple chapters into Venus Transcendent, almost done with Witch Ch. 4 and about a third of the way into a standalone reader requested story. And very much looking forward to starting Marriage Training.

I think I've mentioned that I've got a bit of a Victorian-era obsession going on? It started with my interest in Steam Punk but it's definitely more than that. Which is why I'm really looking forward to Marriage Training. It's not just the Victorian era, it's also the Regency era. In fact, in some ways the Regency era is even more fun because there was so much open debaucherousness going on thanks to the example of the Prince Regent. During the Victorian era the debauchery was still there but hidden. Which makes for all sorts of good fun.

Plus, for someone like me who's into the BDSM and spanking and stuff, there's the domestic discipline that was happening. I actually want to write a whole little series about period domestic discipline. All the good stuff that happens behind closed doors.

Granted, there were plenty of bad things about the time period too. Eventually I'd love to write a steam-punk novel. I'm starting to think that eventually I might need more than one pen name to write under... at least two. One for books that are more romantic and ones that are more focused on all the naughty, dirty stuff. We'll see. So far I'm mostly writing naughty dirty stuff, even though I do have some ideas for some romances =) I enjoy writing the erotica so much that I'm not sure when I'll get around to writing the ah... less graphic stuff. And I've definitely got plenty of ideas for the naughty stuff.

I'm looking forward to having the Poker Loser Trilogy done, because I'm looking forward to working on some new stuff. But I have to say, it has been very nice to work with Todd and Allison again. A completely different experience from writing a new story with completely new characters.  Kind of like hanging out with old friends that I haven't seen in a very long time. Unfortunately it's almost time for us to break it off again =/  But I'm enjoying it while it lasts. And soon I'll be spending more time with Jessica, Justin, Chris, Liam and Hilary which I'm really looking forward to. Although I'm also looking forward to finishing off their stories. Not that I haven't enjoyed them, but I am looking forward to getting to know the rest of the guys at Stronghold a little better =) I hope you are too!


  1. Steampunk BDSM Novel? Oh Hell yeah! Just think of all the neat gadgets to come up with.

    1. Now that could be fun... the steampunk idea I came up with is actually non-erotic, but I might seriously enjoy writing a BDSM one... I'll have to think up another storyline =)

  2. I say don't EVER quit writing the nasty graphic stuff!! Lol! Sticking it in with the romance is great but I gotta have the GOOD stuff!! (I know...I'm twisted) ;) looking forward too the victorian era stuff can't wait! Also, it you decide too have alternate pen names be sure too let your favorite readers know so we can follow you!! I'm a lifer....I'm hooked! Lol

    1. Awww thank you!

      And I def won't quit writing it, I just might also write some other stuff =) I have too much fun writing the nasty graphic stuff to ever give it up completely!
