Website & Stuff

I have a website!  It's not complete yet, but it's got some stuff up already -

Hopefully I'll have time to complete it soon =)

Things have been crazy!  Philip's Rules is doing really well, and going by the reviews people are excited by it which is awesome!  It has seven 5-Star reviews on Amazon US already, which I SUPER appreciate.  I am definitely looking forward to the next one, Gabrielle and Felix's story, but before that we're heading back to modern times and Stronghold!  I just got started on Leigh and Jared again and I'm already enjoying myself, which is great =)  It's a little hard to get back into the modern mindset, but it's good for me too.  And meanwhile, Gabrielle and Felix are percolating a little bit.

I think one of my favorite things about writing is that I don't always know where the stories are going to go.  Philip and Cordelia ended up having a kink that I'd never planned on - naughty couple that they are - which was a lot of fun.  Gabrielle acted out in different ways than expected, leading to some of the twists.  My plot outlines are ever changing!

As evidenced by the beginning of Breaking the Chain.  I'm still in the first chapter and Leigh and Jared have already deviated some from the plotline... partly because they're doing their own thing instead of what I had originally based the plot line on, which was the beginning of mine and hubby's relationship.  Making their own decisions and what not, which is certainly not a bad thing!  It's just funny to me how the characters can really end up messing around with my plans =D  I like it that way though, because I figure if I'm surprised by what they're doing, then you guys will be too!

Anyway, I'm going to give it another week and then I'll be posting my first teaser for Breaking the Chain =)  In the meantime, keep enjoying Philip's Rules!  Tell your friends!  Leave reviews! lol.

Happy Birthday / Release Day To Me!

It's my birthday and Philip's Rules is now available!

Married once to a Baron who needed a young bride to bear him an heir, Cordelia Astley found herself in an untenable situation after his death until Philip Stanley, the Marquess of Dunbury, asked her to be his bride. She knows he didn't marry her for love, but he was her white knight and, once they're married, she finds herself falling in love with him. It would be a fairy tale ending if it wasn't for her stepdaughter Gabrielle.

Having observed his cousins Hugh and Eleanor find happiness in their respective marriages, Philip doesn't see why his marriage should be any different. Especially since he managed to find a giving, submissive, delightful woman that drew him like no woman had ever done before. Everything would be perfect, except that she allows her stepdaughter to denigrate her and manipulate her. His method of correction for both Cordelia and Gabrielle isn't what either lady expected, but Cordelia finds confidence in his support and care of her... if only she would put him first instead of Gabrielle, Philip's life would be perfect.

A sexy spanking tale of desire, passion and love, Philip's Rules is the first of a new series spin-off of the Domestic Discipline Quartet (you do not need to read the quartet to enjoy this book).

Philip's Rules is an 80,000 word standalone novel set in Victorian times with a HEA and contains domestic discipline, spanking, birching, paddling, anal play and sex, the exciting danger of illicit situations, and some seriously delicious alpha men.

On Schedule!

YAY!  So far I am on schedule to get Philip's Rules out for my birthday on August 15th =)  WOOT!

I should be finishing the last chapter and writing the epilogue today.  This week has had a LOT of writing time shoved into it, but it's been good... I had the time for it this week, which was nice.  I'm really happy with how the book has gone so far, I'm getting good feedback from the beta readers, and I'm already looking forward to the rest of the series =)

I'm also hoping to have my first newsletter out sometime this month!  I'll have a link up sometime next week for sign-ups.  I'm not as good about updating the blog as I have been in the past anymore, I'm just too busy, and I won't be abandoning the blog, but I feel like the newsletter is a good option for people who aren't as interested in reading the blog posts but DO want to know when the next book is coming out.  Because, let's be honest, sometimes I just ramble on here and not everyone wants to know what's going through my head during the writing process, which I totally get.

In other news, I've (finally) started on reader requests for Lit.  The first thing I'm doing is re-writing Chapter 9 of Contest, which was a request made a LONG time ago and I'm excited to finally get to it.  It's certainly the most lacking chapter of that series and I'm going to enjoy doing it justice.  It's also probably going to be a couple chapters long.  I'm a little disappointed in myself for putting up so much information packed into such a short chapter the first time around.  At the time, I was doing the Survivorphile contest, which involved quantity over quality, but I was really trying not to let the quality of my stories suffer, and on that chapter I definitely fell short of that goal.  Soooo I'm really happy that I got a request to re-write it and I can now fix that!

And, of course, once Philip's Rules is complete and out, book-wise I will be turning my focus back to Stronghold to pick up Leigh and Jared's story where it left off!  I'm looking forward to that although I'm also super into the new Bridal Discipline series.  It's always fun having two series that I'm so inspired by!
