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!
