Sat Spanks and a Shameless Plug (not that kind of plug you dirty birdy)

Saturday Spankings

I missed a few weeks, real life putting me in a position where I had zero time to read everyone’s entries. And isn’t that the whole point? But I’m back now and looking to make up for lost time!

A quick recap of what I’m doing: Saturday Spanks is a blog hop with a cheeky twist. Each of us are allowed to post up to 8 sentences from something we’ve written, no more, unless you want literal Saturday spanks. This might be my last snippet from Pursued by the Knight, please enjoy!

Summary: Princess Georgianna has given up on the possibility of love. Her kingdom is starving, her people dying, and the responsibility of saving them falls on the shoulders of the young princess. Georgianna accepts the dismal future that is sure to come with her union to the cruel, yet wealthy, Prince Lisben.

But when she is seduced into an impulsive affair with the demanding Knight General Braden and it becomes more than she believed possible, she suddenly finds herself fleeing under his protection. Georgianna must rely on Braden to protect her body, but who will protect her heart?

Blurb: Georgianna proves that while Braden can keep her inline with a firm hand, she has her own set of tools.

Braden stalked forward and she backed up. She felt a tree behind her and pressed against it. He pressed his palm against the bark just above her head. She felt fully surrounded by him. “That won’t happen,” he said slowly.

Georgianna bit her lip. “If only perfect enunciation made something true.” Her lower lip jutted out in a pout. 

Now onto the shameless plug! Since I’ve got you here I thought it only right to bring your attention to an interview I recently did with the very talented, very sexy, very kind Patty Devlin (whose own latest book, Mail Order Switch, is as I type this, still holding the #1 spot on Blushing Books bestsellers). Check it out!

Interview with a Rabid Mad Woman (me)

Hi all! The lovely Patty Devlin was gracious enough to interview me last week. 

It is odd being interviewed by someone who is so out of your level and on to the next, I mean, not only is she multi-published but her books often hit the bestseller lists, her most recent being, Mail Order Switch

I’m meeting new authors every day! It’s so exciting. Today I have with me Blushing Books author Sadie Dane. Sadie, can you tell us about Pursued by the Knight?

Sadie: Pursued by the Knight is my first independent novella with Blushing Books. I’d classify it as quasi-historical erotic romance. While it is set in medieval times, I definitely pushed the creative envelope. I hope, in a good way.

And what inspired you to write this book?Sadie: This book began as a short story, a moment in time for Braden and Georgianna published through Blushing Books in the anthology, A Spank in Time 2; The Spanks You Missed. When I was finished, I realized I wasn’t done with them. I wanted to explore how they came together and the push and pull for power in their relationship. I also loved the idea of delving into how a woman asserts herself in a time where it was more difficult to show her strength. 

 
 
How long have you been writing?Sadie: I’ve been writing with the intent to publish for about three years. Though, I’ve always been obsessed with books and storytelling. Even when I wasn’t putting pen to paper or finger to key I would act out scenes whenever I was alone. I kind of worry that someone saw me walking down the street, deep in an argument as I played both characters.

 For more interview check out Patty’s blog. In fact, check it out anyway. 

Happy reading!

Ha, ha, huh?

While my brain seems to have no shortage of plot lines, bunnies, sequel ideas or series thoughts, I have the hardest time deciding what to blog about.

I mean, I know what my blog *is* about. The difficulty comes from deciding how to present that. So, this week I was going to do a fun post that featured some giggle inducing jokes of a naughty nature.

I began my journey where every self respecting writer begins anything, on Google. A quick query for “dirty jokes” and I was rapidly sorting through what seemed an endless number of laughs. Or, that’s what I should have been doing. Instead I got jokes like this:

Q. What doesn’t belong in this list : Meat, Eggs, Wife, Blowjob?
A. Blowjob: You can beat your meat, eggs or wife, but you can’t beat a blowjob. (*1)

OR this one:

A man and his wife go to their honeymoon hotel for their 25th anniversary. As the couple reflected on that magical evening 25 years ago, the wife asked the husband, “When you first saw my naked body in front of you, what was going through your mind?”

The husband replied, “All I wanted to do was to fuck your brains out, and suck your tits dry.”

Then, as the wife undressed, she asked, “What are you thinking now?”

He replied, “It looks as if I did a pretty good job.”(*2)

Okay, I think to myself. Not your style, you entered a general query and got a general response. Keep trying, Sadie! So I entered “Women friendly dirty jokes.”

Mistake.

I clicked on the first link offered and got jokes like this one:

Why did God give men penises?
So we’d have at least one way to shut a woman up.(*3)

And this one:

Why do most women pay more attention to their appearance than to improving their minds?
Because most men are stupid, but few are blind.(*3)

Needless to say, instead of
laughgif

 

I was

Instead of turning to the nearest man and kicking him in the balls (hoping he isn’t the sort to like that kind of thing) I got thinking that jokes, like the ones I found, those are part of the reason why I write romance. It’s an escape for me as well as for the reader and I am damned sure that no hero of mine will ever be the sort to laugh at any of those jokes.

Except, maybe the blow job one, that one’s kind of funny.

Now all I have to do is find some naughty jokes that are actually funny.

Do you know any? Tell them in the comments section below!

Saturday Spanks

My favorite time of the week has come again, Saturday Spanks! Before I dive into the juicy snippets from all the other lovely authors I’ll get my own out of the way.

Summary: Princess Georgianna has given up on the possibility of love. Her kingdom is starving, her people dying, and the responsibility of saving them falls on the shoulders of the young princess. Georgianna accepts the dismal future that is sure to come with her union to the cruel, yet wealthy, Prince Lisben.

But when she is seduced into an impulsive affair with the demanding Knight General Braden and it becomes more than she believed possible, she suddenly finds herself fleeing under his protection. Georgianna must rely on Braden to protect her body, but who will protect her heart?

Blurb: Princess Georgianna loves and hates her General Braden this is the beginning of their argument in Chapter 1.

“Pity, you’ve wasted all your time defiling me, when you really had your heart set on the charming Lady Calida.”

He pounced in such a way that she had no time to defend against him. She was pressed down against the mattress, his body urgent against hers. His hands wrapped around her wrists and held them above her head as he balanced on his elbows, his face so close she felt his breath. His dirty blond hair tickled her chin. “Defile? Is that what I’ve been doing?” He rotated his hips and she felt the hard length of him nudge against her stomach.

“Get off me.” Her words were breathless.

Saturday Spanks/Winter Spanks

Hello friends! This is my second week participating in the Saturday Spankings blog hop and after last week I am super excited. From what I understand this week will be different in that some of us are also participating in an event co-sponsored by Winter Spanks. I’m not one of them but be sure to pay extra attention to those that are. That way there be prizes!!

Pursued by the Knight by Sadie Dane

Summary: Princess Georgianna has given up on the possibility of love. Her kingdom is starving, her people dying, and the responsibility of saving them falls on the shoulders of the young princess. Georgianna accepts the dismal future that is sure to come with her union to the cruel, yet wealthy, Prince Lisben. 
            But when she is seduced into an impulsive affair with the demanding Knight General Braden and it becomes more than she believed possible, she suddenly finds herself fleeing under his protection. Georgianna must rely on Braden to protect her body, but who will protect her heart?

About this snippet: Even though I’m not participating in Winter Spanks I’ve still been granted permission to offer a little bit longer of a snippet. This scene is one of my favorites from Pursued by the Knight where Princess Georgianna is still under the delusion that she can end her affair with General Braden and Braden makes it clear that isn’t an option for either of them.

“Braden–” His name was a muffled moan on her lips as his hands returned to her shoulders and pushed her down until she sat on the edge of the bed in front of him.

“No. I’ve had enough of this. We’re done talking about it.”

Her eyes left his face, falling to his body in front of her. His tunic was not tucked and hung just below his waist. She closed her eyes and breathed slowly. This was what she needed to stop. He turned her into a woman possessed, unable to make rational or virtuous decisions. She felt, at times, like a trained animal, that would do anything he asked just as long as she received her reward.

“What do you want?” he murmured, lifting her arm and placing her hand on his waist.

She loved to explore him. Her fingers moved, of their own accord, rasping against the coarse linen of his pants. She glided them up his thigh, towards the bump that was, as she watched, growing. She gently massaged his thigh and looked up at him, glorifying in the look of appreciation in his face. Her fingers found the top of his pants and she pulled down gently. She wanted her mouth around him, needed to suck him until he cried out her name in a way no one else ever had.

“No.” His one word was enough to freeze her, inside and out. “You don’t get off that easily, Georgi. Not tonight.” He stepped away but she kept her fingers linked around the top of his pants until he had to pry them off.  “Get on the bed.” She didn’t immediately comply so found herself being flung back, landing with a short bounce on the mattress. “Don’t be coy. Turn over.”

Now, be very sure to check out all of the other blogs. You could be a winner!

P.S. If anyone can help me figure out how to post the actual blog hop list and not the link to the list I’d love you forever and ever. Or at least till next Tuesday 😀

Distractions and Writing

The irony of this blog post is that even as I type these words, I have one eye on the TV (I found the television show “Sons of Anarchy” later than the rest of the world and Netflix was kind enough to give most of it to me). I love writing, getting lost in a WIP, discovering new lands while meeting new people. But, I am not prejudice towards any entertainment and am sometimes too relaxed with productivity.

 

I could be very productive with this

There is one sure fire way to cease all distractions and that is to turn it all off. Turn off the TV and hide the remote. Lock all your books in a closet and swear you won’t look at them until you’re done. But then there’s still the internet and need I even mention cat videos? Sure there are internet blockers and other programs you can buy so that you aren’t even able to look at online distractions, but it gets to the point where you wonder, is there a limit? Take away my books and I’ll watch a movie. Take away the movie and I’m on Youtube. Take away Youtube and I’ll probably open Solitaire (something I do at most, once a year). My point is, distractions exist and taking them away or blocking them only makes that one disappear.

I say, embrace the distraction. Hug it. Cuddle it. Let it take you over. Then, when you come back up for air, get back to what you were doing. No one thing can last forever and beating yourself up for taking a few hours to yourself can’t help creativity.

So what’s your worst distraction? Are you a show binger as well? Or when you start a book, can you not finish until the final page of the final book in the series? How hot is Hunnam?
