Release Day & Other News!

There's a lot going on!

First of all, I'm back on Literotica finishing up TbtV!  Chapter 20 was released this past week =)  I'm about to go out of town and won't be back for a week, but after that my main focus is going to be finishing the series before Thanksgiving.  WOOT!

Also coming out before Thanksgiving will be a story that's part of the Literotica Writers Go West event =)  I'm gonna try my hand at a cowboy story!  Mail-order bride to be specific.  If it goes well, I may end up writing a few mail-order books.  I like using Literotica as a testing ground.

I've got quite a few books in to become audiobooks and they're coming along very nicely!!!  Venus Aspiring and Chasing His Bunny should both be out in early November =)

But the really big news - of course - Benedict's Commands is now available on all platforms!

Amazon        Barnes & Noble        Smashwords


Love? Marriage? Lady Christina Rowan, Dowager-Marchesse of Stanhope, doesn't think so. She avoids both heavy emotions and heavy commitments, and has ever since she discovered the truth behind her first husband's death. As a widow she's found freedom in having lovers without love. When she began to have feelings for her current lover, Benedict Windham, brother to the Duke of Manchester, she immediately cuts him loose before she can become too attached.

Or so she thought.

Time away from Christina has made Benedict realize how deep his own feelings for her run; not only is she the most exciting lover he's ever had, he's actually fallen in love with her. So when he returns to London for the Season, he's determined to court his former lover and turn her into his wife. 

This book contains spanking, BDSM, an alpha male, an amorous but emotionally reluctant heroine, and a lot of naughty, scandalous fun.

All The Things

Goodness... so much going on.

Well, first things first - what's NOT going on.  I've been just terrible about finishing Taken by the Viking for Literotica and I feel bad about it but my mental energy is just so low right now it's going to be all I can do to finish up Benedict's Commands on time.  As much as I love my Lit readers and fans, the book deadlines take higher priority for me.  It doesn't help that Jordan and Trish haven't been very talkative in my head.  I do plan to finish them up before Christmas, but it's probably going to have to wait until BC is done. 

Why is my mental energy so low?  Well, I'm pretty much completely stressed out, anxious, and depressed, and while I'm doing my best to distract myself and keep my spirits up (and manage to do a pretty decent job), it's really draining.  I'm also not sure if I'm actually keeping my spirits up, or if I'm just so drained I don't have the energy to really be miserable anymore.  Or if I've just become so used to being in this state that I've stopped really noticing it as much. 

If you've been following my Facebook you know some of what's going on.  My best friend's father, who was basically my second dad (and I literally mean that, half the time I hang out with her parents she's not even there, they're a big part of my life and have been for over a decade) had been dealing with health issues for a while.  In June it got bad, they managed to get him into home hospice care at the very end of June, just in time for his and Momma's 41st wedding anniversary.  I live just down the street and so was going over pretty regularly to help out, taking turns with their kids to keep them company in the evenings and make sure they didn't need anything.  July 12 he passed away.  Bestie was out of town and called me immediately.  I went over to help Momma and her son deal with calling hospice and the funeral home and the family.  It was one of the hardest weeks of my entire life.

After that I was helping out on Momma duty, we were taking turns making sure she had someone with her every evening for the first few weeks.  Obviously something I was happy to do, just as I had been going over before he passed, but both things are still emotionally draining, esp while grieving.

A week after Poppa's funeral my own grandmother went into the hospital for what could have been a life-threatening condition but fortunately wasn't because she was admitted in time. 

A week after that Hubby's stepmother called, she was in an ambulance with his dad and they thought it was his heart.  Obviously not something you want to hear at any time, but two weeks after Poppa's passing it was especially panic-inducing.  We rushed to the hospital.  It turned out it wasn't his heart but he needed gall bladder surgery.  Surgery happened on Monday, things were looking up.

Friday he was rushed back to the hospital.  Something was REALLY wrong neurologically and they couldn't figure out what was going on.  This culminated in a brain bleed Tuesday night which, if it didn't stop on its own and they had to go in to stop it would have put his chances of survival at only 20%.  Fortunately over Tuesday night it did stop on its own and he was doing much better Wednesday morning.

We were in his hospital room getting the good news Wednesday morning (HUGE relief) when my mom texted me.  My grandfather was on  his way to the hospital, they thought he'd had a stroke.

Cue my biggest breakdown.

Since then, everyone has been getting better, I finally started feeling better, until two weeks ago when we found out my Great Aunt has aggressive cancer.  She may or may not make it to the end of the year.  I'm supposed to be going to visit her this weekend but haven't heard back from any of my recent emails (and she's a little deaf so calling isn't the best option) so I've gotta reach out to one of her kids and find out if I'm still going to visit this weekend.  I would really like to, but at the same time it's not exactly a happy visit since it's very possibly the last time I'll see her if she doesn't make it to the holidays.

And last week hubby's aunt on his mom's side tried to kill herself, fortunately her brother found her and got her to the hospital in time.

So that's where I'm at and why I am running low on creative mental energy.

However, where I'm running a little higher is on energy for things that will distract me from what's going on in my life and require no creativity... so cue perfect time to start getting serious about audio books!  People have been asking about audio books for a while and Venus School was the only one I had available.

I am happy to report that Venus Aspiring now has a narrator and is in production.

Chasing His Bunny has a narrator and is in production.

Chasing His Squirrel has an interested narrator and I've made an offer so hopefully it will be in production soon.

I'm uploading other books for narrator auditions and am reaching out to narrators when no one auditions immediately... so far the Big Bad Bunnies series has definitely attracted the most narrators, but I'll keep working until I can find a narrator for every single one of my books!  I'm going to try and get a couple of my Dark Angel titles narrated as well. 

And so far, Benedict's Commands is still on schedule for an October release, after which I will hopefully bang out the last few chapters of Taken by the Viking and then jump right into Tempting the Domme for Stronghold

Woo!

New Dark Angel Release - Forbidden Fantasy House

Who wants to read something dark?!

My latest Dark Angel release is now available on Amazon to buy or borrow using Kindle Unlimited =)

Forbidden Fantasy House is based off of my Literotica story "Fantasy House: Elena's Story" - so many people were interested in Lance as a character that I ended up turning this into a full blown novella =) The original story is still in there as well, but now we see how Elena got to the Fantasy House, and what happens after Lance sees her leaving it =)

Enjoy!

Special Pre-Order Price for Stripping the Sub!

Stripping the Sub is finally up for pre-order!  After it releases on Amazon, the price will go up to $3.99.

As usual, it will be available on Barnes & Noble and Smashwords for the special $2.99 price for the first week after release =)


Ever since Michael Waverly joined Stronghold and recognized Ellie Sanders he's wanted to scene with her, but over time it's turned into something more than that and he knows a scene just won't satisfy him. Unfortunately, she's been avoiding him and she has a reputation for never doing more than just a scene. For the first time, her defenses seem to be down and she's willing to give him a chance. But while she's willing to sign a club contract with him, will she ever be willing to open her heart?

Ellie is so full of secrets sometimes she feels like that's all she's made of - all the things she doesn't want other people to know about her. The person she's most afraid of revealing all of her secrets to are Michael - her one-time protector and crush in high school, now grown into a devastatingly attractive sadist at Stronghold. She wants to play with him. More than that, she wants to know if maybe she has a chance for a normal relationship with him... the first man in a long time that she's both trusted and been attracted to. Unfortunately for Ellie, normal has always been out of her reach. The most important secret of all is the one she's keeping from everyone, especially Michael, because there's no way he'd ever want her if he knew the truth behind her damage. 

But communication is everything in BDSM and Michael's determined to strip back all of Ellie's defenses and claim her as his own... with a determined Dom like that, what chance does a scared subbie have of keeping her secrets?

This book contains BDSM, sadism, masochism, whipping, sensory play, bondage, and all sorts of kinky fun with a guaranteed HEA.
