A new beginning

Well, hello there. Miss me? Hehe probably not. Don’t worry, I’m not offended. The Internet is constant and even if you work hard to stay ahead you can find yourself slipping under. 

I can’t even claim to have been trying hard to stay on top. 

But that’s water under the bridge, sand in the hourglass, leaves in a tree. I’m pretty sure that not all of those metaphors are being correctly used but I will add that to my list of things I need forgiven for 😉

On to more exciting news, I have a cover! A new cover I mean. It is for my newest release where I turn away from Knights (sorry guys) and turn toward secret societies. So let’s all give a collective wave to Chosen One-The Enlightened Hand Book 1!!

That’s all I’m giving you right now. It’s almost October and I’m all about the antici——–

Sat Spanks in Yo Face!

Saturday Spankings

Hey Sat Spankers! I am still sharing from my latest release Pleased by the Knight. It has been out for a while now and I love the cover as much now as I did the first time. I thought I would share out of order. This week’s snippet is from the first chapter when Prince Corbin finds himself in a famous, and private Welcoming party 😀 Everyone wants to be welcomed home, right?

A little behind the scenes tidbit, when I thought about this little scene I quickly titled it my Circus Orgy scene. In my mind there were bright colors and body parts every where. I hope that came across in the final version. To read the rest, you can check out the free first chapter on Blushing Books. Or on Amazon!

Nobody spoke real words unless one counted grunts and moans. This dance was one they all seemed to know the steps to, except for Corbin who watched it all unfold with stupid wonder. Just in front of him an older woman was on her knees sitting on a man’s face, her face fixed in an expression of pure pleasure as she ground against him.

Corbin looked upward to where he thought his gaze would be safe, only to see a woman suspended from the top of the tent, with ropes tied around each of her ankles. She held onto another rope that was intricately wrapped around her middle and she stretched her legs open lowering her pussy to the man who waited below, with his mouth open like a baby bird eager for dinner.

I swear that is less then 8 sentences, it just looks big 🙂

Anyways, I’ve taken up enough spanking time, move on won’t you?

Possessed by the Knight is here!!

Nothing is as nerve wracking or exciting as a new book release. So many emotions, so many worries, but I’m going to swallow those down and just get on with it.

Romance book cover for ebook

Possessed by the Knight is now available on Blushing Books, Amazon and Barnes and Noble! (Click the one you want for the link)

But, what is this blasted book about? Let me tell you:

Summary: Kalista has gone from rags to riches. She preferred rags – at least she understood that world. Fate has turned things upside down and she needs someone to cling to, someone like the powerful Knight Caldwell. But when Caldwell pretends she doesn’t exist and his brother comes calling in times of trouble, whom can she trust? Whose love will prove true in the end?

Sample: Kalista slipped from her room into the quiet corridor. The early morning air, still crisp and sharp forced a shiver from her even as sun flooded through the castle windows. In moments her servant, Francine would be skipping to her room to help her prepare for the day. Kalista still wasn’t used to being waited on rather than being the one doing the waiting. There was definitely something to be said for being pampered, but it still made her uncomfortable.

She tiptoed through Harrington Castle, as different to Covard Castle as was possible, and her new home. Where Covard had been narrow and dingy, every corner of Harrington was open and bright. Even Ceravique, as pristine as it had seemed, surrounded by fields and meadows, had not been as beautiful.

“Miss, my Lady Kalista,” her servant rushed towards her out of breath and bright red.

“Hello, Francine,” Kalista said, somewhat sullenly.

Francine twittered like a bird on a branch. “You were not there, are you… oh but yes, you are dressed. Your hair though, I could….”

Kalista slowed so that Francine could catch her breath. “I think this will do for today.”

“My Lady, you are correct of course, but, the tournament. The opening ceremony is tonight. Wouldn’t you want something fancier to gain more requests for your favor?”

The only favor she gave two shakes about would be from a knight that wasn’t participating. Honestly, Kalista had forgotten about the tournament that King Braden had announced shortly after his wedding to her dearest friend and now Queen of Harrington, Georgianna. Her first request as queen had been to grant Kalista the title of noble. Just like that, Kalista had gone from the rags of a lady’s maid and servant to the luxurious satin dress she wore now.

“There’s plenty of time, Francine. Why don’t you spend the day planning in my room?”

Francine’s tiny, birdlike face lit up. “I will, my Lady. You’ll be the finest one there, except of course, the queen.” Francine blushed and dropped her head. Kalista hated the way the girl almost flinched from her as if afraid of punishment.

She set her hand softly on the girl’s arm. “I have every faith in you.”

Kalista could be wearing the finest dress in the kingdom, weave bright flowers in her hair and she still knew he wouldn’t even look at her. He hadn’t since their arrival to Harrington. As frightening as their escape from Covard had been, Kalista would gladly go back to that time if it meant having her knight look at her again.

She stopped at a door, raised her fist, and was in the act of knocking when the door suddenly opened.

Kalista felt the air rush out of her body as she stood face to face with the cause of her anxiety.

Visit the Blushing Book website for the entire rest of the first chapter.

I’ll take this time to step back slowly and hyperventilate. Thanks for reading!

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!

There’s rum in this, right?

Deck the halls with boughs of holly!

Never mind the fact that I have only one hallway and if it is decked in anything, it’s dog hair, jackets and shoes. Or the fact that I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bough of holly. (I just googled it, I have seen one, but they are mostly fake and wouldn’t last long in my hallway with the demon feline.)

Despite all this, I love this time of year. Almost as much as I love an impromptu quickie against a tree. There is something about Christmas that makes me thankful for what I have and then New Years makes me hopeful for what is to come. With that in mind, I’d like to reflect. So, hop on top of the Ghost of Christmas Past and take a ride with me.

This year I:

1. Discovered the amazing world of writing erotic romance. I have always been a fan of the genre. My favorite Sunday afternoon hobby is enjoying a bottle of wine and an erotic romance. If I’m not disturbed, I can generally finish both at about the same time. But writing one was something I thought braver people did. I am so thankful to my Blushing Mischief crew for holding my hand, tugging on other bits and spanking me until I realized that I may not be brave enough, but I am definitely saucy enough to write erotic romance.

2. Published my first (and second) short story in an erotic anthology. Spank in Time and A Spank in Time 2 The Spanks you Missed, will always hold a special place in my heart. They were my firsts and unlike my real first that was over as quickly as it had started, SIT and SIT2 are both something that I can always go back to and be proud of.

3. Published my first independent erotic romance novella. Riding the tail end of the wave of SIT2 was my first erotica novella, Pursued by the Knight. I’m not sure what I can say about this, since I start giggling like a school girl every time I think of it, but let’s just say I am very excited and appreciative to Blushing Books for giving me a chance.

Looking to the future, I’ve got a lot to learn. How to keep it fresh and market myself (cause doesn’t it just feel pushy?).   But I also have so much I’m looking forward to, making friends in the genre, a second book and discovering places online where people like me can get together. One of those places is Saturday Spankings, where every Saturday readers are given a chance to read sexy spanking excerpts and discover new authors to love. Please do check back, you may just find your next favorite author.

Do me a favor and enjoy your holidays. Merry Christmas, if that is what you celebrate, Merry Everything Else as well.  Whatever you celebrate, I’ll drink an extra glass of eggnog for you all!

Tag! You’re it!

Tag, You’re It!

blank-tag

 So I have been tagged, I’m it. This is a fun game for authors because we rock. Being “IT” means that you share information about your “work in progress” also known as “WIP” The Rules 1.) Give credit (including a link) to the Author who tagged you. 2.)Play by the rules, therefore you most post the rules! 3.)You MUST answer all 10 questions (below) some are quite hard but do your best. 4.)List five other Authors with links at the end that you have “tagged” so that the game can continue (more on this sad point at the end).
The Link Back
I was tagged by  PJ Perryman who is the fantastic author of, Drench the Wench and Kiss of the Marquis. She also has the fortune of being boss and member of Blushing Mischief, the author group responsible for A Spank in Time.
Q1.) What is the title or working title of your WIP?
Subdued by the Knight
Q2.) What genres does your novel fall under?
Historically Inaccurate Erotica
Q3.) What actors (Dream Cast) would you choose to play the characters in a film version?
Emmy Rossum would make a perfect Georgianna. Innocent, but with a sultry side (have you seen that  scene in Phantom?!).
John-Kenney-@-Gregory-Vaughan-2
John Kenney is who I didn’t realize I was thinking of when writing Braden until this moment (Not technically an actor, but who the hell cares? I mean, really, look at that and tell me you mind).
Q4.) What is the main outline for your book?
Subdued by the Knight, is only one of the stories in the erotic anthology,  A Spank in Time II – The Spanks You Missed.  It tells the story of Georgianna, recently engaged to the cruel Prince Lisben and her affair with knight and General of her fiance’s army, Braden. Georgianna realizes the affair cannot continue and plans to break it off. Braden is not the easily broken type.
Q5.) Will your book be Indie published/self published, or represented by an agency and sold to a traditional publisher?
 A Spank in Time II – The Spanks You Missed, which will include my short story, Subdued by the Knight, will be published by Blushing Books, provider of the cheekiest stories known to womankind. Don’t worry, if there is one thing I will tell you (and repeatedly) is when, as soon as I know.
Q6.) How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
At a little over 6k, Subdued by the Knight, didn’t take long time-wise to write. Much of my effort was spent pre-writing, mulling over the tone and emotion I wanted to convey in the story.
Q7.) What other books in this genre would you compare your book to?
Oh, yikes. Humility forbids me from comparing my works to books I love and survival forbids me from comparing with books I didn’t enjoy. I gravitate towards stories with intense people who have no other reason to be with each other other than that they need to. I have my foundations in romance, so none of my stories are loveless.
Q8.) Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I love the idea of quiet strength. The squeakiest wheel gets the grease but I’m more interested in the silent wheel. I tried to play with that idea while writing Subdued by the Knight.
Q9.) What else about the book might pique readers’ attention?
Most noticeably, the other stories in the anthology. While everyone in Blushing Mischief writes some of the sexiest stuff around, we all write about very different people and places.
Q10.) Five other Indie Authors you have tagged
Here is the sad part. I have no friends. There, I said it. Well, I have friends, but they have already been tagged. Next time, I’ll start the game and tag everyone first. I can’t leave you with nothing though, so here, watch this eight minute video of people making out.
