Morning Announcements

Happy Saturday morning! Hope you are not snowed in like we are!

I just sent out 20 gift cards to 20 lucky readers on my mailing list. If that sounds awesome to you, sign up for my mailing list to have a shot at future giveaways.

In other news...

My post on One Handed Writers got some love this week--some other sites linked to it which was a pleasant surprise. If you're a writer whose always chafed (like I did!) at the advice to 'write and then write some more' I have some insight on what that actually means.

The rough draft of my novella, Demon of Her Dreams is done. I finished it before Christmas and will start final edits in early January.

While Demon of Her Dreams marinates, I've been working on another novella, this one with vampires. It has been an unruly beast, refusing to stay short and insisting on being a quite long novella in length. The plan is to release it in two parts, just to make the work load more manageable. (It may actually end up being a short novel at this rate, which...yikes! I started out just wanting to make a personal pan pizza and somehow now I'm cooking for the football team. Or something like that anyway. I  haven't had my caffeine yet!)

Once the rough draft of vampire novella part two is written, I will return to werewolves. I have a short story in mind for Chloe and Jackson who first appeared in Make Her Howl and the germ of a longer project. So for those readers who found me because of my werewolves, there's more to come.

Upcoming Releases: His Royal Cougar

I'm so excited to announce that my next release, His Royal Cougar will be available later this month. Check out the cover and blurb!

Ex-military officer turned security expert, Amelia Booker thrives on action and adventure, even if her aging knees to creak in protest. When she saves a Prince’s life, it takes everything to a whole new level. At first, she believes the young prince demands a private audience to thank her, but what His Royal Hotness really wants is some action of his own.

New Free Read: Tango Undone

I have a free quickie available on Smashwords. It's short and sexy, or sultry as one of the reviews its garnered called it.

Having been a dancer--a long long time ago in a galaxy free of cellulite and aching arthritis--I find that a continual theme in my writing is that of submission and domination in dance. The push-pull of dance is such a great study of the dynamics in a bdsm relationship. I'm actually surprised it doesn't show up more often in erotica fiction.

Tango Undone continues to explore dance through the lens of bdsm and I was excited to see two five star reviews for the story today:

"Sultry would be an apt and yet inadaquate term for this hotter than hot dance scene. Very well done and makes me beg for more of her tales."

"This was a very fun, short, poetic, erotica story. I liked it, even though I don't know all of the tango terms (which is kind of nice, makes it mysterious). Definitely made me interested in checking out some of her other books."

What a pleasant surprise! Go check it out and, if you want more dance erotica, Dance for Me is also free.

Learning Photoshop

I've been taking an online Photoshop class, trying to learn how to make my own book covers. Here's my latest attempt (with still so much to learn!).

First I made this:

And I decided it was pretty good. Or rather, it represents the hard limit of my skills and I literally can't do any better.

So I took it and made this:

What do you think?

Now just to finish the story!

Free Read 3/15/12: Dance for Me

Dance for Me is free tomorrow, 3/15/12 and tomorrow only.

This is a short, sexy excerpt from the Spanked to the Limit novella.

Dance with a man who really knows how to lead...

Lexi can bump and grind with the best of the club bunnies, but Mark has something a little more stimulating in mind. He dresses her in stilettos followed by clothes that leave her more naked than not. Add in a few toys, and when he dips her over his knee? She can't help but moan in pleasure.


He pressed a button on a remote and music from a bygone era filled the room in a sultry blare of saxophone. Holding out a hand to her, he said, "Shall we dance?"

She nodded and took his hand. He pulled her close until her nipples rubbed against the coarse weave of his shirt. His knee separated her legs as he pushed and pulled her in a series of dance steps.

As they moved across the floor, he said, "The best dancing is about control and submission. A man leads, a woman follows. It's not for her to think or question or do, only to simply allow herself to be molded, to be guided, to be dominated."

He draped her over his knee in an elegant dip and nuzzled her neck, lips nipping softly at her pulse. "And when the woman follows, it is a thing of beauty." He moved lower to capture a nipple in his mouth, flicking his tongue over the hard tip.

Coming Soon

Regular blogging will start shortly, just as soon as I have five minutes to spare.

Until then, be advised I've been invited to join the writers at the One Handed Writers blog and my first post will be next week on Wednesday. I think I will be discussing why spanking is a turn-on, but reserve the right to change my mind and do a book giveaway instead.

In the interim, please check out this most excellent critical analysis of the Fifty Shades books.

If you want something better than Fifty Shades, but in a similar vein, I humbly suggest my novella Spanked to the Limit (see side bar for link). I can't say it's entirely accurate in its portrayal of a BDSM lifestyle, but it was researched and relies on some personal experience, while also being a fantastical imagining of a dominant/submissive relationship.
