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.


  1. I'm looking forward to it with a bit of nervous excitement. I'm glad you're having fun writing it :)

    1. I really am =P About 1/3 of the way through the first chapter so far!

    2. Well, do keep me appraised :)

      Just naming the character after me, or more?

    3. Just naming her... any other similarities are coincidence. didn't want it to get too weird =P hahaha.

  2. How is the bad weather affecting you? I should imagine you are forced to sit and home - and write, of course.
