I am so excited! Valentine’s Day will bring so much good reading for me and for all of you! I have purchased all the books in the series and had the pleasure to edit Worth the Risk by Crystal and Iain. I quite enjoyed the book and I’m sure the others are just as much fun.

Don’t forget to pre-order Tied to the Beat! The paperback will be out on the 15th!

Kintober!

I haven’t quite been keeping up but I do have one more to share with you. Maybe two if my brain will spit out today’s prompt. Remember that they’re all first drafts! Raw and unedited.

First up is the prompt from the 4th: Shower/Bath.

Water, hot and pulsating, flows up from the showerhead.

It thump-thump-thumps against a tiny nub of gathered nerves.

A gasp echoes through the marbled chamber. Water is pushed away in protest.

It’s shoved back into place, held there.

The gasp turns into harsh breathing, constant sounds of pleasure.

There’s a growl of frustration as the water is moved and the peak is denied.

When breathing settles, water is moved back into place.

Water creates fire and lightning.

Muscles twitch. 

Gasping, panting, moaning.

A large hand covers the smaller one, holding the water in place.

A scream pierces the air.

Orgasm

It got called an “overly long orgasm haiku” on my writing group. laughs

Today’s writing prompt is Cunnilingus/Clothing (suits/costumes/etc)/Porn Stash. To do this one, I think I’m going to choose Clothing. It’ll be short and sweet.

Sarah stared at the big white box on the bed. It was intriguing. Wide, red satin ribbon held it shut and the store logo was covered by a large, blood red envelope.

Her name was written in calligraphy on the front in large letters. Below them, it said, “Open immediately.” It was a command she could not ignore. Trembling fingers reached for the ribbon and pulled the bow apart before they reached into the envelope and pulled out a note.

It said: Be ready at 8, my girl. Hair down, dark makeup.

Sarah shivered. They were going to the Club. She wondered why; it wasn’t their usual night. And this…this box. It wasn’t a day for gifts. She stared for another moment then grinned. “Oh, whatever,” she says with a dreamy little sigh. “This will be a good night.”

Finally, she opens the box. At first, all she sees is a confusing pile of red leather, the same red as the envelope on the front. Idly, for a brief second, she wondered which came first: the dress or the envelope. Was he inspired by the envelope to get a dress that colour?

“Whatever!” she says again as she gives her head a shake. “What’s with the tangents?” Carefully, oh, so carefully, she lifted the dress from the box.

As soon as she had it all unfolded and hanging from her hands, full length, she gasped in shock. “It’s a Northbound Leather dress! It’s THE Northbound Leather dress!” She let out a loud squee and ran for the full length mirror.

“OH MY GAWD!” She shouted. Immediately, she lowered her voice with reverance. “It’s stunning. I have to put it on. I have to wear it. I have to put it on.”

Sarah whirled around and ran to put it on the bed. “Clean. I need to be clean.”

She ran for the shower and cleaned herself thoroughly, shaving everything below the chin. She scrubbed and primped and washed and dried her hair, leaving it down as ordered.

“Okay, slut,” she said to herself, “now it’s time for the dress.”

It was ridiculous, but she had moisture on her inner thighs because the mere thought of wearing the dress excited her almost to the point of orgasm. She was hot, swollen and wet between her thighs. Her nipples her tight and her breasts heavy. She was panting and quivering as she slowly slid the zipper down on the back of the dress and unsnapping the collar of the halter.

She sat down in her Master’s armchair, the one in the corner of the room, placed where he could best watch her masturbate, so that she could pick up both feet, already clad in black stilettos with ankle straps and closed toes, and slide them into the dress and through the skirt at the same time. The smell and feel of the leather was almost too much to bear already.

Sarah shuddered with pleasure and more moisture pooled in her core.

“Oh shit!” She jumped up, hopping in a circle as she held onto the dress. “Please tell me I didn’t get his chair dirty!” She leaned over and examined it carefully. Finding nothing, she sagged in relief. “Thank God. He’d have locked me in the cage.”

Straightening up, she resumed tugging the dress up over her hips. Little sounds of pleasure were escaping her as the dress slid over the curve of her ass then wrapped around her ribs. She tugged the halter up and tucked her D-cups into place. She was lucky that gravity hadn’t started to get a good grip on them yet so she could stuff the perky-ish, pink tipped, pleasure globes into place.

Then she wrapped the halter collar around her neck with a moan. It was tight enough she could feel herself swallow, with just enough give that she could breathe easily.

Lastly, she pulled up the zipper. It came up to mid-back but once it was done up, the dress was tight. It wrapped around her like a coccoon and the boning hidden in the seams forced her into an upright, proper posture. The skirt stopped at mid-calf and kept her from taking a full and proper step.

“Oh, oh,” she rubbed her hands all over herself as she moaned. “Oh my yes. Yes!” She took a few small steps to the mirror and looked at herself. “Oh god. Look at me. I’m in bondage and I’m going out in public.” She panted more, head thrown back, hands on her breasts as she slid them over the leather, her orgasm about to crash over the peak.

Suddenly a deep voice breaks into her self-admiration. “Don’t you dare cum, slut. Not until I have allowed it.”

Sarah’s moan catches in her throat and she slowly comes back to herself. She turns and looks at him, eyes heavy and dark. “As you wish, Master.”

“Good girl. Let’s go.” He heads out the door and he’s halfway down the stairs before she realizes he’s in a tux.

“Not the club?” she asks herself. “Who cares! Public bondage! Yay!” She runs after him with tiny mincing steps, a grin on her face.

Well, time for me to go! I want to talk briefly about my goals for the next six months. I have a few, some personal, some writing.

  • applying myself to re-learning the flute. I have it. Use it.
  • I have two languages I’m learning on Duolingo: Scots Gaelic and german.
  • I’d like to write HW4. The series deserves to be completed.
  • I need to start Whisky Cats.
  • There’s a writing competition I just got introduced to that I am considering. It’s deadline is …well, shit, it’s the end of the month. Better consider it fast, eh?
  • We are doing the MS Ride again. You can donate to me here http://mssoc.convio.net/goto/LongshotRiderJ
  • I want to lose 30 pounds. Training for the ride will certainly help that.

I think that’s good for six months. We’ll see where I am then.

For now, it’s way past dinner time, I need pain meds, and the dog is getting impatient, too. Don’t forget to pre-order Tied to the Beat!

Muah!

It’s FIVE Days to IYSAE!

And I am petrified, anxious and excited all at the same time!  I’ve been working on books, on swag, and on deciding what to bake for the MS Ride fundraiser.  

I have the books at the printer AND I put HW3 in to the reviewers at Createspace, which means it will be released soon! 

Wanna see it?

HW3 cover final

It’s my favourite!

It’s stunning, isn’t it?  The background photo is of Glen Coe in Scotland. 

All three covers have things in common: the layouts – positioning of my picture, texts, titles and my name – as well as the colours of the title and author name.  The subtitle colour reflects the content of the book. (Anna does a lot with fire in this book.)

I’m so excited about some of the swag we’ve prepared!  We have a magnet and a bookmark I just love. And my banner, to go on the table and let everyone know who I am, is gorgeous and sexy.  Check them out.

Sticker

The magnet.

Bookmark 2

The bookmark.

banner copy

And the banner.

Aren’t they just frakin’ amazing?  

I will be publishing the meanings to all the words the day after IYSAE.  They’re almost all words that have disappeared from use.  For instance, honeyfuggle means to deceive by flattery or sweet talk, to swindle or cheat. 

And that banner. *whistles*  It’s sexy, no?  It’s not going to be missed, is it?  I’m hoping it draws people in like bees to a flower.  

I have to go but I leave you with three more things:

Ghosts Afire will be live by Wednesday and, as usual, as soon as the Kindle version is live, it will be free for three days.  I may make all three books available so you can get the entire series.  Or I’ll make a buck-a-book promo.  

IYSAE is at the Double Tree by Hilton in London from 10 am to 3 pm (… wait, *double checks*).  VIP ticket holders get in at 10, Gen Admin at 11.  Tickets are $20 at the door. Signing ends at 2, not 3.  

I will be taking my Chocolate Heavens cookies and my Orange Creamsicle cupcakes to help with our MS Ride fundraiser.  You can check us out here http://mssoc.convio.net/goto/thelongshotriders  to donate, if you want to donate directly. (Please do!) All proceeds from Saturday’s sale of A Year in the Life of S. Claus, the cupcakes and the cookies will be going into the fundraising pot.  Along with any other donations people choose to make.  

Have a great week!

Muah!

Micky & I just love the UPS Guy

He brings nice things.

Isn’t it gorgeous??

 

It’s a slightly blurry picture, I know, but I was taking the picture to show Mike and I was excited. 

The inside looks great but the cover is slightly off. I’m not sure if it’s them or me since the two books are different in that way.  I think it’s me, personally, but Mike thinks it’s them because it looks perfect in the digital proofer. 

It’s a pretty, pretty book. With an exciting concept.

Blurb:

What if Santa wasn’t a small, fat man in a bright red suit?

What if he were really a magic man, a savvy businessman, a car enthusiast and some time vigilante?

Santa’s real name is Ari Lykke and he is a Norwegian given the job of Santa Claus by the Gods many centuries ago. Since then, he’s built the business into a worldwide conglomerate, helped thousands achieve their dreams, and rescued millions from the clutches of Darkness. Now, he has a murder to solve, corporate espionage to prevent and one tiny old woman to save.

And you can get it for free through tomorrow as an ebook at the following sites:

I know that the books seem kind of expensive but the proceeds are going to our MS Ride: http://mssoc.convio.net/goto/thelongshotriders .

We are riding for a couple reasons.  Mike’s aunt died of MS several years ago. MS is, as far as I can tell with the research I’ve done, as close as any other disease gets, to FMS as anything else. That means the research is potentially helpful to finding resolutions to FMS as well. I’ve wanted to do this ride for many years and finally, in Mike, I have the support I need to get it done. 

With your help, we can raise the money we are looking for to contribute.  We will have a bonus for the top three largest contributers. 

Have a good evening!

Muah!

 

Santa is LIVE!

Good morning!

Make it happenIt is a good start to the week:  – Micky is doing well, though she’s sleepy.  That’s a good thing, it means she’s not going to tear stitches (like she did when she was spayed).  We’re going today to get her a Medi-shirt because the cone is making her depressed, which is bad.

Mike and I are feeling pretty good, though neither of  us slept well

The Santa book is LIVE! I’m thrilled with it.  It’s a gorgeous cover; the story is unique; and I think it’s an intriguing blurb (and have had people say so, which is even better).  

Tuesday:  

Choose daysWell, I absolutely meant to post that yesterday. A hundred things came up and I forgot I was writing the blog. ☺  

It’s a good thing, though, because I checked the website this morning and the

PAPERBACK IS LIVE!

I’m waiting on my physical proof but the digital copy showed that it looks gorgeous.  

You can get the ebook for FREE for a very limited time – until Thursday.  After that, as with the paperback, all proceeds will go to our MS fundraiser

The Review Process Stinks

Good morning!

I get it. I really do. I understand that they have to make sure that everything is up to their standards (though, really, how do some of those books make it through?) but it takes so stinkin’ long.

Screenshot 2018-08-18 08.47.53

72 hours! *grumble*

I have found in the past that it can be remarkably shorter, so we’ll see.  I will be doing a freebie promo for a few days to help get the word out.  However, the proceeds from this book will be going to the MS Ride fundraising.  

This one though…

Screenshot 2018-08-18 08.49.58

It does take 24 hours.

If I wasn’t such a lady – hey, you in the corner, stop laughing! – I’d flop back with a hugely dramatic sigh.  

So the book will be available very soon! All the work is done. Now it’s just a matter of waiting. 

Bonus: I believe we get to bring Micky home today. 

Have a superlative Saturday!

Muah!

The Cover Reveal!

 Good morning!

It’s a beautiful day for a cover reveal!

I have finished the blurb and the tagline (which stayed just like it was in the last blog *laughs*) and everything is ready for release on Wednesday!

That’s right! 

A Year in the Life of S. Claus will be out TOMORROW!

Here is the blurb:

What if Santa wasn’t a small, fat man in a bright red suit?  What if he were really a magic man, a savvy businessman, a car enthusiast and some time vigilante?

Santa’s real name is Ari Lykke and he is a Norwegian given the job of Santa Claus by the Gods many centuries ago. Since then, he’s built the business into a worldwide conglomerate, helped thousands achieve their dreams, and rescued millions from the clutches of Darkness. Now, he has a murder to solve, corporate espionage to prevent and one tiny old woman to save.

And the tagline:

Santa: magic man, businessman, car collector, and vigilante. The real story behind the myth.

What do you think?  Catchy, right? 

I like them. I just hope they’re as effective as I’d like them to be. 😀

The other thing about the book is that most of the proceeds will be going to our 2019 MS Ride.  

We have named our team The Longshots. *chuckles* I am kind of a longshot to make this run from Grand Bend, Ontario to London and back again. It’s a two day ride but dang, it’s a 150 km (93 miles, +/- a few yards) ride. That’s a LOT of my ass in the saddle and feet on the pedals. 

Thank the Gods for Mike. *smiles*  He knows how to keep me going. 

Here is where you can keep up with me.  And here is where you can keep up with the team, although I haven’t done anything with it yet; I need Mike to register.  Our team goal is $3,000. I will be donating $300 (a little at a time, I’ve got 50 in so far) and the proceeds of A Year in the Life of S. Claus, for as long as I’m fundraising.

We will be doing other things to fundraise:

  • a bake sale at IYSAE.  Which you can attend, if you live in London, Ontario.  I will have cupcakes and cookies. I haven’t yet decided which will be gluten free.  I will probably do a poll among the attending authors.
  • the standard “pestering” of friends, relatives, work ‘friends’
  • buck-a-kilometer training sessions (which will be tracked/proven via the Cyclometer app I have on my phone)
  • Maybe we’ll find a way to do a silent auction or something. 

We’ll get there with the fundraising and then some, I know it.  AND I WILL RIDE.  I will do every single kilometer by my own power (and then not be able to walk until Wednesday *laughs*).  

But now, it’s time for what you’re all waiting for:

THE COVER!

*drum roll*

Santa cover copy

TA-DA!! Isn’t it gorgeous?

I think it’s beautiful, sleek, and just the right touch. I didn’t want Christmas or overt Santa material. I wanted subtly and class.  And I think I achieved that.   The back is going to be pale gold with black lettering. 

Tell me, what do you think?

I am going to get to work publishing! Have a great day, everyone.

Muah!
