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!

A picture is worth a thousand boners

Sadie has gone visual.

“What does that mean?” you ask. I’ll tell ya.

I stole this awesome idea from one of my dearest writing buddies, Jilly Glass. I’ve created a series of Pinterest boards that provide me with inspiration for the various characters and places I write about. Right now, most of the boards are for my latest release. I’m saving most of the information on that, because I get off on being withholding (AD fans?! eh?), but go ahead and take a look!

Admittedly, this might make more sense after you’ve read the story, but…*shrug*

Tacos and Boobs

Hey all, as I said Wednesday was my turn with Humpday Erotica, The Good, the Bad, and the not so sexy. The rules real quickly for anyone who doesn’t know:

1. Me and my three lovely friends take turns writing a truly bad erotic novel

2. We have a strict 69 word limit

3.. No planning, no pre-plotting, ensuring our undies are always in the air and we are constantly caught with our pants down

 

Ok, enough rules here is my latest installment:

His greedy eyes slid to her generous cleavage and his eyes sparkled in a “I want to…”

“-stop-for-tacos sort of way.”

Milly sighed, long and slow. This was not how she wanted their second meeting to happen. Their first meeting had been less than desirable. Milly had stood on that stage like she owned it, Her glorious boobs had shown to the world and she had won that first place prize. But, she hadn’t known then that one of the judges would one day be her…

You can find all of our posts here at TGTBATNSS (not my best acronym). I hope you enjoy it and have a great week!

Last time on The Good the Bad and the Not-so-Sexy

Sunday was the latest post towards our ongoing, collaborative writing efforts to create some truly bad erotica. I’ve spent some time laughing at the words my lovely writing partners have come up with.  Wednesday is my turn again and my wheels are turning. I wonder if it is finally time for someone to get naked…

 

In case you missed P.J’s last post, here it is:

She hailed a taxi and dropped like a brick…

…when who but Slayde Huntington IV himself appeared at her side!
“Hi Milly, what a coincidence.” That smooth tone, those bulging biceps. Her heart raced and she felt wetness in her panties. “Wanna share a taxi?”
“Oh Slayde, would that even be possible?” she asked, thrusting her well-proportioned nipples in his direction.
His greedy eyes slid to her generous cleavage and his eyes sparkled in a “I want to…”

Why was Slade outside her apartment? Will her breasts ever be free of that blouse? Did she really wet herself? Stayed tuned for more Milly antics…

Personally, I don’t think breasts like hers should ever be freed 😀

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.
Blushing Mischief

Blushing Interview

The writing group I am a part of, Blushing Mischief, has had its first author interview. You can see the full thing on the Blushing Books Blog .

A little snippet:

Blushing Books: It can be a challenge for just one writer to work with an editor. I this case it’s a group with one writer, PJ Perryman, essentially acting as a spokesperson and consulting with the group on everything from the synopsis to the cover art to what to call yourselves. How difficult was this?  What snags did you hit along the way?  Did you encounter any creative differences, and if so how did you resolve them?

Blushing Mischief: The biggest issue we had was the time difference. We have writers in the US, the Netherlands and Portugal, so coordinating meetings proved something of a challenge. The social media platforms helped a lot – and early on team roles were established to keep things on track. This could have been difficult but with so much talent on board it became relatively smooth sailing.

As it was her baby, PJ did the rallying and nudging and came up with a lot of promotional ideas. Oh, and she coordinated stuff like this. AC Masterson is a fabulous editor and took on a lot of the review work (Yay, thank you AC!!!) Jilly Glass is a superb networker and provided moral support to anyone who needed it. AT Quinn has been writing erotica for some time and brought her expert advice and knowledge to the table.  Sadie Dane and Sara Peal joined Blushing Mischief a little later on, but they are both amazing writers – and are fervent supporters of the spanking cause.

I can’t say how fun the interview was. I look forward to many more 🙂 If this interview has piqued your interest, don’t forget you can still purchase A Spank in Time.

Links, as far as the eye can see!

It came to my attention that I haven’t announced that the anthology I am a part of A Spank in Time,  is available at Barnes and Noble as well as  Amazon. 

If you are ready, willing and able, please click the link of your choice and give me (us) a try. If you are even more willing, feel free to leave a review. I love reviews. I could eat them for breakfast, brunch, lunch, second lunch, snack, linner, dinner, and fourth meal.

Thanks, babes!
