Double Story Friday!

If you haven't had a chance yet, make sure you check out my previous blogpost for a teaser from Taming the Tease.  =)  Rick and Maria meeting and talking for the first time.

Aaaaaaaaaand I've got two new stories out today!

Chapter 12 of Taken by the Wolf


Chapter 4 of Annie Rides the Sybian.

I've actually finished Annie Rides the Sybian, the last chapter was submitted yesterday so that should be out sometime next week =)  Which means that in February I'll start work on finishing From Terra, the first of the stories you all voted on for me to finish this year!  Rather looking forward to that.

And of course, I'll be continuing work on Taken by the Wolf.   Unfortunately I haven't finished a chapter for it this week - that whole being super busy and working overtime for the next couple of months which significantly cuts down on my writing time.  But I should have another chapter submitted next week =)

Happy Friday!

Taming the Tease Teaser!

YAY!  My first teaser for Taming the Tease, book 2 in the Stronghold series.  You might remember Rick Winter from The Venus Quartet as well as from Stronghold.  He's a sexy blonde who's definitely looking for a relationship, he just doesn't know with who.  But he's finally moved up to be closer to his friends and to Stronghold and one of his new neighbors is definitely tempting him even though he knows better than to try to date someone who lives in the same building as him, especially when there's no sign she's at all submissive.

Maria's a curvy, sassy, thirty year old with three younger sisters - two of whom are married and the youngest just got engaged.  But that doesn't bother her, what DOES bother her is the amount of people in her life who seem to think that it should.  She's tired of the worried pity glances and the 'supportive' comments, and she's also tired of her lack of sex life.  So when her incredibly sexy new neighbor seems like he might be interested, even though with his good looks he's probably a player, that doesn't stop her from wanting to get to know him better.  

Taming the Tease

Stroke, stroke, stroke and breathe; stroke, stroke, stroke and breathe... Rick preferred to breathe on every third stroke when he was swimming freestyle.  It was how he'd been taught and he found that twisting his head from side to side rather than always coming up on the same side meant his neck got a more symmetrical workout.  He didn't know why that mattered to him, but it did.  
Sometimes he felt like he was getting old and set in his ways.  
Gliding the last couple of meters into the wall, he came up for air and stretched out his shoulders.  This morning he'd taken a bit of a longer workout than usual.  He'd needed to burn off the energy again. 
Sexually frustrated much? 
He nearly groaned when he saw the lusciously curved brunette that he'd been watching, apparently venturing out in the morning for the second day in a row, this time tucked into a bright red bikini with tiny ruffles edging the top and bottom.  Ruffles were dumb, in his opinion, but on her they didn't detract from her attractiveness.  And the screaming red color suited her dark hair and tanned skin perfectly.
The rest of the pool area was nearly empty.  There was a young mother with her toddler on the opposite side and another older man that Rick recognized as a fellow lap-swimmer, and the tempting brunette.  Who was putting her stuff down on a lounge chair only two away from his.
There were plenty of other lounge chairs further away, but he saw the way she was looking at him out of the corner of her eye.  She'd deliberately chosen a location near his towel.  
Interest stirred, along with his cock.
Stop it.
No getting involved with the neighbors.  Obviously a reminder that bore repeating.  Besides, he might be reading too much into things.  Maybe she hadn't been looking at him at all.  Or maybe she'd only been looking at him and wondering if it was his towel that was sitting so close to her chosen spot.
Ugh.  He was starting to sound like a teenage girl inside his head.  Great.
Ducking back into the pool, he kept swimming.  But the entire time he was also picturing the brunette and that wasn't good either.  He swam faster.  
Ten laps later he glided back into the wall and came up breathing heavily.  One quick look over in the brunette's direction nearly had him groaning again.  She was laid out on her stomach and she'd undone the top of her bikini, leaving the expanse of her back completely bared to the sun.  Why that was so sexy, he wasn't sure, but somehow a woman with her bikini top undone was always an erotic tease.  Maybe it was just the vain hope that she might forget to redo it before sitting up.
Time to go home again.  He was done with his work out and while he'd originally been planning to spend some time drying out in the sun as the day heated up, he knew he wouldn't be able to relax and enjoy it with her only two chairs away.  Pulling himself out of the pool, he did his best not to look at her as he padded over to his chair and picked up his towel.  Rubbing it roughly over his face, he took the moment to regain his balance, unsure of why her mere presence unsettled him so badly.
Slipping on his sandals, he slung his towel around his neck and headed towards the exit.
"Hey, do you have a second?"
The sound of her sultry, sleepy voice, tinged with just the faintest hint of an accent, had Rick doing a quick about turn.  Yep.  Sunbathing beauty was looking up at him with a smile, her head and shoulders raised just enough to make his cock twitch in hopes that he was going to get to see something scandalous.  
"Sure," he said, taking a step towards her.  He knew he was looming over her a bit, but the position helped him regain some of his equilibrium.  Damn she looked good from this angle.  The bikini bottoms were clinging to the well-rounded cheeks of her ass, which was soft and cushy looking - the kind of ass a man wanted to grab onto or spank the hell out of.  Rick wanted to do both.  And the fact that her bikini was red only made visualizing it easier.  "What can I do for you?"
Her eyes brightened and her smile deepened, revealing a dimple on her left cheek.  Rick had never thought he had a weakness for such things, but on her...
Reaching into her bag, she pulled out a white tube.  "Can you get my back?  I can just feel the heat coming down and I don't wantto turn over yet."
"Sure."  The word was out of his mouth for a second time, his body eagerly taking over from his brain.  Not that his brain would have been able to come up with a good excuse to get out of her simple request.  But at least his brain knew it was a bad idea.  He could have hesitated instead of jumping on the excuse to touch her.
That sleepy, sultry smile was doing all sorts of havoc, but he had a lot of practice at keeping his face expressionless.  Still, he didn't want her to think he was unfriendly, so he gave her a small smile back as he squirted the white cream onto his hand.
Yeah, don't think too hard about that.
Her deep brown eyes went down to a half-lidded state as she watched him sit down on the chair next to hers and reach over to her back.  Soft.  Warm.  Pliable.  Rick tried to concentrate on smoothing the sunscreen in evenly rather than on how silky and inviting her skin was.
Giving her a quick glance, he saw that her eyes had closed and she had a little smile on her face, looking very much like the cat that got the cream.  Satisfied.  Sexy.  
"My name's Maria."

Two Stories and a Monday

I had two stories come out over the weekend...

Taken by the Wolf Ch. 11


Annie Rides the Sybian Ch. 3

So far getting good reviews, although Annie seems to have picked up a troll.  That's okay.  I've noticed that it's mostly the best stories that get trolls.  Last week I was feeding them a bit cuz I was feeling snarky.  This week I've decided to let them starve.  Got bored arguing with stupidity.

Feeling tired but good. Got another chapter of Annie finished and submitted today.  YAY!  It's the second to last.  I'm going to try to get the last chapter finished this week because in February I'd like to start (and maybe even complete) the first of the stories that you all voted on me to finish this year... From Terra.  Looking forward to that although I'll be sad to say goodbye to Annie.  I'm having a lot of fun with this story.

I've been reading a lot of alien abduction erotica lately... so that might def feed into From Terra a bit.  I'm really excited to finish some of my previous works, I always feel bad about the fact that I've left some stories hanging, but I've got so many new ideas that it's hard to balance everything.  Actually, it's hard for me to balance everything period, I'm always overloading myself.  *sigh*  Wish I could overload myself with cock. LOL. 

Yeah. I went there.  As I said, I'm a bit tired =P

Soooo this week, main goal is to finish up the Annie series, secondary goal is to finish another chapter of the Wolf (btw, submitted chapter 12 yesterday so that should be out either later this week or early next week).  Third-ary goal is to keep working on Taming the Tease.  I don't think I'll be able to get it out early, like I did Punishing His Ward, but I'd rather not get it out late either.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Stronghold & Some Thoughts

Soooo Stronghold is finally available for the Nook and on Smashwords!  From now on, releases should all come at about the same time.  When I submitted it to Amazon, I wasn't publishing for the Nook yet so I went ahead and did my usual sign-up for promotions, which means that it can't be sold on any other site for 90 days.  La.

Anyway!  Submitted the next chapter of Annie Rides the Sybian... so far it looks like I'm getting out about a chapter a week for both Annie and The Wolf.  I've been enjoying watching the comments about where people think The Wolf is going to go.  Interestingly, so far no one's picked up on the direction.  I'll just say again... I'm feeling rather sadistic and if you're hoping Bella and Alex manage to get away / upset the system before going through some crazy shit, you're probably better off not reading the story LOL.  Just gonna put that out there.  I haven't gone nearly as dark as I want to go yet.

Plus, I'm using this series to start experimenting with some Domme stuff.  I've never written Women dominating Man scenes before and if I'm ever going to write Olivia, then I need to get some practice in and get some feedback on what people think of those scenes =D  Since they're out of my usual comfort zone.

In the meantime... I'll talk a little bit more about the next book in the Stronghold series, Taming the Tease - which I'll have a teaser for before February ;)  Maria is waaaaaaaaay feistier than I'd originally realized and she's turning Rick on his head a little bit.  LOL.  It's a lot of fun to write.  I'm not entirely sure either he or I know quite what to do with her.  Although so far she's not messing up my outline as much as Angel and Adam did, but then again I'm only about 5 chapters into the book.  I keep feeling like that's not a lot, but then I remind myself that I have to start somewhere, and that originally I thought I'd still be working on Punishing His Ward at this point, so the fact that I'm focusing on it at all is a good thing.  Especially since I didn't work on it much at all these past couple of months and then ended up completely re-writing what I HAD written LOL.

Feeling rather snarky lately... if you've read my tweets or my comments back to anonymous commentators you may have noticed that.  I know I should just let people be, and normally I do, but I've been having a bit more trouble with that the past couple of days LOL.  Snark snark snark!  Maybe I just have more energy than usual.

Anyway. I think I've started babbling and hit that point where I'm not being interesting anymore.  So I'm gonna stop now.  Look for more stuff coming next week!

It's That Time Again!

Sooo if you were reading my blog last year, you may remember that at around this point I got super busy at work and didn't have as much time for writing.  Yeah, it's that time of year again.  Everything slows down for me except my day-job workload which picks up like WOAH.  Not necessarily a bad thing, since that's what pays the bills, but it does mean that my fun-time activities suffer a bit while I start the long-haul of overtime for the next few months.

The good news?  The season isn't in full swing yet.  I submitted the next chapter of Taken by the Wolf on the same day that Chapter 10 came out (Monday) and Chapter 2 of Annie Rides the Sybian is also now available.  I'm hoping to submit the next chapter of that later today or tomorrow. =)  Having such a good time writing both right now... they're both so fucked up in completely different ways LOL.  And for some reason that's just so enjoyable to me!

I'm working hard on Taming the Tease; hopefully I'll have a teaser of THAT for you within the next couple of weeks.  I've gotten a fair amount of work done but I don't know if I have any good teaser scenes yet...

And, Dark Angel's next work, Consequences Part II, will definitely be out in February before Valentine's Day =)  If you're familiar with Consequences on Literotica then you already know the basic storyline which was modified for the Amazon version, Consequences Part I, which changed, edited and expanded upon the Lit story.  Mostly in that it's pseudo-incest rather than incest, the erotic scenes were expanded and some of the storyline was revised (I got rid of Uncle Max's daughter as a character and slightly changed some of what was going on with Grandma).  Part II will continue their story, with some new scenes, and a completely new ending that goes more along with what the story became in book form =)  Looking forward to that!

Something else I've done is changed the tabs at the top of this blog.  I'm going to have a tab for each series that's currently being worked on, there's now a Completed Series / Books tabs so that I don't have those all crowding up the tab space, and there's a tab for Dark Angel's works. 

Btw, esp when it comes to Dark Angel's works will which ALWAYS be available for Prime on Kindle because they're Kindle exclusives (this goes for any of my books that are free via Prime), I've gotten some questions about whether or not I get paid if you "borrow" one of my books.  I absolutely do.  And, in the case of the 99cent books, I actually get more than if you paid the 99 cents for it.  Go figure lol.  But yes, please don't worry about whether or not Amazon gives us anything for our borrowed books (although it's incredibly sweet that some of you do), we def make something off of it =)

Hope everyone's having a great week!

The Clitorides Awards

Sooooo a huge thank you to Anomandaris who contacted me to let me know that Marriage Training had been nominated for a Clitorides Award!

I had no idea what that was at first, but it's a pretty cool website -

From what I can tell, their mission is to help spread the word on good stories and authors that are available for free on the internet.  Which I think is pretty awesome, because there are some REALLY fantastic authors out there writing for free and it's really cool that there's something like this for acknowledging them and for also getting the word out about their stories.

And apparently, some people have been nominating Marriage Training for Best BDSM!

The way it seems to work is that anyone can nominate anyone (as long as their story is free), you don't have to sign up for the website, you just have to provide an email address so that they can keep a count on who is nominating who and make sure that nothing's rotten in the state of Denmark.  And the top ten nominated stories become finalists, and then they open up the voting.

I know a lot of you really liked Marriage Training, so I figured I'd ask that if any of you think it deserves an award like this, if you wouldn't mind slipping on over there and nominating it... but seriously, only if you think it deserves it.  And even if you don't, you should check out the sight anyway because they've got links to all the other stories too so it's a great resource for finding new authors that someone else thinks deserves a shout out. 

From the count, I can see that more than one person has already nominated me, and I just want to say thank you guys so much... you have no idea what it means to me that people not only take the time to read my work and send me feedback and their thoughts, but also to nominate one of my stories for this kind of acknowledgment!  It's made me all warm and fuzzy inside =)

And congratulations to Tx Tall Tales who has several nominations!

For those of you who are reading Taken by the Wolf, Chapter 10 is now up!

I Wish...

I type 102 words per minute with minimal mistakes.

And I still wish I could type faster.

I have all these ideas just constantly exploding inside of my head... I wish you could all see the little notebooks that I have just FILLED with story ideas that are yet to be written.  And I have no idea when I'll be able to write them.  And it SUCKS because I want to share them all with you, but then I'm like, that's not really fair to be like, "CHECK OUT THIS AWESOME IDEA I HAVE.... I'm probably not going to be able to write it for a couple of years..." lol

I mean, you know... it just seems mean.

There's a futuristic series that I really want to write and I was like, "Dude, I'll totally get into that after I finish the Stronghold series!"  But of course, I'm only working on the second book of the Stronghold series and there's still what... 5-6 more to go?  If not more?  Plus, I've had some ideas for novellas to insert in between the actual books (things that I want to write but won't need a full book for, like Liam proposing to Hilary; Justin, Chris and Jessica's wedding; a prequel to Jared's book, plus some of the characters leftover from Venus School and maybe some of the other side characters from Stronghold).  ACK.

At least I can look forward to the Society of Sin, which is the Victorian series I'll be working on after I finish the Domestic Discipline Quartet.  That one will start with Marriage Training and then go back in time, starting with Gabriel's stepmother Audrey and the beginning of her employment as governess to his sisters, telling her story with his father.  After that it'll move onto his sisters, and then I've got multiple ideas for stories from that point (one of which will have Vivian's friend Emily, from Mrs. Cunningham's Finishing School, as the heroine).  And I've got a bunch of novella ideas for that one too.  SO yeah.  That I can talk about because I've got only one more book before starting that, and I'm pretty sure that I'll be able to get Marriage Training out in book form this fall!  I'll be aiming for September/November.

Anyway.  Just felt like whining a bit about all the great ideas I have that I don't feel like I can share.  LOL.  And my excitement about what I AM working on.  YAY!  Heh heh heh.

One more thing I'm excited about - came up with some AWESOME outlines to finish the stories that you all voted on that I'm suuuuper excited about.  From Terra is the most episodic, rather than having a real story arch, but the other two have some major stuff going on =) YAY!

Annie Rides the Sybian

Sooooooooooo for those of who you aren't into Taken by the Wolf, I've got a new story out!  This is the first chapter in a 5-part series that I'm working on before I start finishing up From Terra.

Annie Rides the Sybian is a story idea I got from LoAnnie (who has some wonderful works herself on Literotica).  There's not going to be any romance, but it should be a really fun read =D  I'm sure as heck having a lot of fun writing it!  This first chapter is in the Toys/Masturbation category but the next four chapters will be in Non-Con. 

And for those of you who ARE reading Taken by the Wolf, I hope you enjoyed Chapter 9, Chapter 10 was submitted last night so it could possibly be out as soon as this upcoming weekend, or possibly at the beginning of next week.  Always hard to tell with Lit.  I counted out the chapters that I have outlined and Taken by the Wolf has 29 chapters total in the outline.  Crazy!  But awesome.  And they seem to be going much faster than Marriage Training did, probably because they aren't as in depth or as long.  I'm definitely okay with that though.  I'm having fun with the dark and also with how much easier the chapters are to write!

I'm really looking forward to getting started on finishing the series that you all voted for, hoping to do that starting in February =) 

Happy Hump Day!

Burlesque Brunch

So, M asked about the Burlesque Brunch I mentioned in my last blog post.

Burlesque is something that has become BIG in the U.S. again.  It's not exactly stripping... but kind of.  The women usually don't get completely naked and there's more corsets and feathers and stuff like that.  It used to be the big thing to do for an erotic good time and now it's definitely been making a comeback here in the U.S.

For a friends bachlorette party we went to SAX in DC, which is a Burlesque Bar & Lounge with a FANTASTIC stage up behind the bar.  This means that you can't get anywhere near the dancers to tip them, so their wages are covered in the price that you pay for your meal (which is a set menu with a set price, although you do have some options within the set menu).  There's also always at least one girl walking around the floor in an outfit for you to take pictures with.

Burlesque is hot.  If you're trying to conjure up a picture of what it is, think corsets, silk robes, elbow-length gloves, stockings and nipple tassles.  Big feathers, fans, and a lot of pageantry going along with the stripping.  I'm looking into taking some classes in it, because I found out that's possible in my area.

SAX not only does evening stuff, they also have a Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas and bloody mary's.  RIGHT?!  Yeah, of course we went.  LOL.  And it was just as amazing as when we were there for the bachlorette party.  The nice thing is, the Burlesque Dancers have sets that occur every 15 minutes or so and are about 2-4 minutes long.  This means that you have plenty of time to talk to your friends / eat in between watching the dancers - who are fantastic, btw.  They have a girl who does stuff on the pole that is just ridic impressive... she has amazing muscles and I want to be her.  Upper body strength like WOAH.  The food is great, the drinks are delicious, and the entertainment is both sexy and fun.

Next time we go to brunch there, we're bringing our moms.  And we're probably not going to give them a heads up beforehand.

Because what fun would that be?

Taken By the Wolf Ch. 9

As you may have guessed from the title of this blog post... Chapter 9 of Taken by the Wolf is now up on Literotica =)  YAY!  Chapter 9 has girl-on-girl sex and a defiant Alex.  I'm about halfway through Chapter 10 which will have more oral sex and more defiant Alex. LOL.  As well as some mind-fuck stuff, although in a slightly different way than previous chapters. 

A couple of days ago I submitted the first chapter of Annie and the Sybian for those of you who aren't into the Wolf.  Annie starts off in toys/masturbation and ends up in Non-Con.  It's still a darker story and, for once, not a romance, but I think most of you will like it anyway =D  More to the usual style of what I write.  So that should be out later this week.

Consequences Part II (Wrote the first one for my other penname Dark Angel, if you remember) should be out next month just in time for Valentine's Day =D

If you haven't picked up a copy of Punishing His Ward, here's the links to Amazon and B&N.  So far getting pretty good reviews!  And thank you so much to those of you who have taken the time to do that, I really do appreciate it sooooo much =) Especially since so far you've all had very nice things to say!  I'm glad that people are enjoying Cynthia and Wesley, goodness knows I did!

I am currently knee-deep in Rick Winter and Maria... who are turning out to be a tougher write than Adam and Angel were, but I'm enjoying them.  Completely different dynamic.  It's also a lot of fun cuz right now I'm in the middle of a scene where he's at Stronghold so I'm getting to visit with some of the other characters... and about to hit some kind of showdown between Lexie and Patrick. Awesome-sauce!  Love those too and I'm looking forward to them... although I'm also seriously enjoying Rick right now.  He's such a sweetie, but I have a feeling he's completely different in the bedroom!

Anyway... I'm going to a Burlesque Brunch today.  It's not the same as a strip club... but I've been for the evening and it's freaking awesome.  I'm extremely amused by the idea of Burlesque over Brunch so I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy that too =)

Hope everyone has been having a good weekend!

Taken by the Wolf Ch. 8

Talk about being on a roll!

So Taken by the Wolf Ch. 8 came out on Literotica last night =)  So far it seems like it's getting good reviews =)  It's the first time that Bella, Alex and the Wolf are all alone together... and I think it might be as much of a mind-fuck as a physical one.  I certainly felt a bit like it was when I was writing it!  But sometimes I wonder if I'm getting across everything that's going on in my head.

Anyway.  Last night I also submitted Chapter 9... wow, that one took a turn while I was writing it.  The Wolf really likes making his captives earn their meals, and I knew exactly how I wanted them to do so.  Alex did exactly what he was supposed to.  Then I started writing the part where Bella and Trish were supposed to eat each other out to earn their food, and things did NOT go the way I planned!  But I think I liked the way it went even better, in the mind-fuck sense.  It'll be interesting to see how people respond when that comes out, so keep an eye out for it!  Now I've started working on Chapter 10 which won't really have anything new when it comes to the mind-fuck / sex stuff, but it's going to introduce some other stuff that I've been looking forward to dealing with.  Woo!

And, of course, if you didn't read my blog yesterday, Punishing His Ward is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords =)  If you like it please take a minute to let people know and just write a quick review!!!  It's always much appreciated =)

In the meantime, I've been working a bit on the short series that I mentioned before, Annie Rides the Sybian, and I think I'm about halfway through the first chapter of that one (it's going to have longer chapters than The Wolf does).  I'm hoping to get that submitted later this week.  I've also been working on trying to put together outlines for finishing the three Lit series that you all voted for!

It looks like From Terra will be the first one that I finish, mostly because it's going to have the shortest number of chapters to come to its conclusion.  Tomboy Tease will be next, although it's going to take quite a few chapters.  And Homeschooled is going last, because it took on a life of its own while I was writing the outline, and I don't know that I'll be able to even START finishing all three if I don't save that one for last... I'm pretty sure that the outline I came up with is NOTHING like what I originally pictured, but I'm looking forward to it.

Anyway, just wanted to report in on all that... apparently it's a busy week!

Now Available - Punishing His Ward

YAY!  Punishing His Ward is now on sale, the third book in the Domestic Discipline series =) 

You can get it on or for the Nook, or if you don't have either it's also available on Smashwords.

Super excited that it's finally all ready to go!  I managed to finish it earlier than I thought I would; Cynthia and Wesley were extremely easy to write.  Plus Edwin & Eleanor are finally settling down.  Irene's still got a few issues, but they aren't with Hugh...

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy!  Let me know what you think, and if you have a minute than a review on whatever site you purchased from is ALWAYS appreciated!

Friday, January 3, 2014


The whole 2014 thing is weirding me out a little bit.  Not sure why.  Maybe because Hubby and I designated 2015 as year of the house/poss babies and now that it's 2014 it feels SO much closer.  Eep.

Yesterday I finished the next chapter of Taken by the Wolf and submitted it to Lit.  It's the first chapter where Alex and Bella are alone with the Wolf.  Woot!  For those of you who don't like the MM stuff, there's almost none in the chapter, just a short hands-on paragraph.  I enjoyed writing about them being alone with him =)  Slightly different dynamic.  I was a little surprised that the Wolf's personality / demeanor really didn't change much between private/public.  Not sure what I expected, but really that's just who he is apparently.

I'm done with Seduction by Spanking which is now called Taming his Ward although I'm considering changing it to Punishing His Ward.  We'll see.  I have a lot of editing to do and because of the holidays I haven't gotten started on it yet at all.  I should be able to spend some time dealing with it this weekend, which will be good... I'd like to get it submitted to Amazon sometime next week.  Things have been a bit busy at home.  Hubby bought me Arkham Horror for Christmas and I'm more than a little addicted.  I love board games, I love complicated games, and I'm currently reading some H.P. Lovecraft, so really it was the perfect storm.  He's such a good hubby.  But it means that we've been playing board games ALL night instead of doing anything else, because the moment we finish a game I give him the sad eyes and he sighs and helps me reset the board.  =D

In other news, I've started work on Taming the Tease and I finally pushed past the writer's block I was struggling with on the first chapter... because, really, my opening sucked balls and so I re-wrote it completely.  Kinda wish I'd kept a copy of the original opening cuz then I could have shared it here and next time I do something like that I'll try to remember to keep a copy for you guys.  But yeah, once I started a new opening it started flying a bit, so I'm well on my way into the first chapter and getting to know Rick's girl.  I'm a fan.

And next for Lit, I'm going to be writing a short series (about 5 chapters long, compared to the more than 20 of The Wolf).  I've already started it.  This will give me some time while I figure out how the heck I'm going to finish the stories you all voted on (since it's been awhile since I worked on any of them and I'm going to have to figure out where I want them to go... any suggestions / requests, feel free to email me or leave a comment here!).  So the short series came from a suggestion from LoAnnie that intrigued me and I'm having fun writing it so far.  It's going to start off in the Toys category and move over to the Non-Con, probably called Annie Rides the Sybian.  So I'll keep you updated on that as well.

First month of the year and I'm already busy busy busy!  Unfortunately not unusual.  I just have trouble constraining myself when it comes to my projects LOL.

2014 Resolutions!

Ok, so last year I made 4 Life Resolutions and 4 Writing Resolutions... and, as I discussed, I barely did half of them.  But I'm pretty happy about the ones that I did complete, so that's something. 

I think 4 of each is pretty reasonable, so I'm going to do the same this year and hope that I do a better job of living up to them =P

Life Resolutions
1. Either go to dance class or the gym at least twice a week (much more specific than just saying "lose weight")
2. Pay off at least two credit cards fully (yeah, more than last year, but I'm closer to actually doing it this year)
3. Get some culture - see at least 5 live shows, either in person or using the MET / ballet live feeds at the movie theater
4. Go to a strip club (re-hashing this one)

Writing Resolutions
1. Publish at least 2 books in the Stronghold series (That would be Rick's book and Patrick & Lexie's book ;)
2. Complete the Domestic Discipline Quartet
3. Publish the book version of Marriage Training
4. Complete these three series for Literotica: Homeschooled, Tomboy Tease and From Terra

Bonus Resolution
Yeah I'm having a bonus resolution for my penname - I'd like to get at least two more Dark Angel books out this year, if not more =)

So there's a lot that I'm looking forward to this year!  I'll be sad to finish off the Domestic Discipline Quartet, but excited to move onto the series that is going to be set in the Marriage Training world - The Society of Sin series - and I can't wait to get further into the Stronghold characters and their stories =)  I'm also excited about finally getting to write something super dark and trying out new things with Taken by the Wolf.

Happy New Year!  Let's do this!
