More Smut for Chocoholics!

Hi all!
After a long, dry month (I’ve been doing Dryathlon – eek!) I’m back on my game and starting a new month with a submissions call for the More Smut for Chocoholics anthology.
Do you love Chocolate?
Do you write Erotica?
Did you know you could combine the two into a decadent delight?
Last year lots of wonderful Erotic Writers did just that to bring you “Smut for Chocoholics” (http://
smutters.co.uk/smut-for-chocoholics)
This year we want lots more of the same with “More Smut for Chocoholics” (you know one chunk is
just never enough!) so we want your chocolate themed erotica, it can be from any genre even fantasy,
sci-fi, historical or futuristic as long as it has an erotic twist and features chocolate somehow. We are
looking for stories between 3,000 – 6,000 words. So have a few sticks of your choccy of choice and get
inspired!
The rest of the information about the call for subs can be found at http://smutters.co.uk/calls-for-subs/more-smut-for-chocoholics

Merry Blissemas! - Why have I never written a holiday story?


Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year. The best way I can describe my feelings about it is to mention the German Christmas market that comes to my town every year – dark nights lit with fairy lights, cold air and hot mulled wine and music and presents. As my day job has mandatory leave over the Christmas period, it also means I can wake up, see snow outside and know I don’t have to go out. It’s perfect.

So why, I wonder, have I never written a holiday story?

It’s not that there aren’t opportunities. Every year there are Christmas anthologies with varying slants. And it’s not as though there isn’t fodder for my imagination. I can think of dozens of Christmas-related sex scenes involving candy canes, tinsel or gifts under the tree. Heck, even Santa might like a quick one in between dropping off presents. It must be a long night for him.

I think it’s just that my brain is weird. All my ideas seem to come out of left field. My husband is used to bizarre queries about plot points, or being urgently told while I’m driving “I’ve had an idea! Text me the word ‘bullet’ so I don’t forget!” The shiny happy Christmas vision I hold somehow doesn’t translate into stories, which generally require conflict to have human interest.

So I’m not doing a Christmas story this year. But I’m working on three different projects right now, so the New Year should be a good one in literary terms.


Merry Christmas, and may you get all you want under the tree!

To join in simply leave a comment on this post and the others at http://blissemas.co.uk and you could be in to win your choice of eReader or $100 gift voucher to spend on eBooks! The prize will be drawn on the 21st December. Merry Blissemas!

I'm Back...

Well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted here, and I’ve no excuse other than I’ve been ridiculously busy. However, I’m determined to make more of an effort to start posting properly for the benefit of anyone who cares enough to read them.

What have I been doing? Well, as you already know, earlier this year my short story “Ready for Him” was published as part of the “Tied to the Billionaire” anthology. A few months later my addition to the Clandestine Classics line, “The Tenant of Wildfell Hall”, was released, much to my delight as the original was always a favourite of mine. And two weeks ago saw the release of my short story “Sleepwalker”, which so far is doing nicely in the reviews. So the last few months have been a whirlwind of promotion, which I’ve been enjoying immensely.

And what am I doing now?

As it’s November, I’m currently doing NaNoWriMo, primarily in aid of the confidential project I’m working on for Totally Bound (formerly Total-e-Bound). I’m about four chapters away from the end, after which I will be editing and hopefully be finished before Christmas.


So here’s to hopefully a more prolific time for me as a writer and blogger – I’ll be back on here shortly!

Meet the Billionaires Blog Hop - Interview with the Billionaire



Today, as part of the Billionaire babes' promotion for Tied to the Billionaire, I'm interviewing my hot dominant Will Vandenmeer - if he'll let me, of course...

So, Will Vandenmeer - we've been hearing a lot lately about young, wealthy dominants. What makes you stand out?
I have no interest in “standing out” in a crowd – I’m me, and I don’t give a fuck about any other dominant. But if you want to know what draws people to me, and why the paparazzi love my face – it’s because they’ve never seen a hot young guy fronting a casino business while also running a BDSM club in New York City, and they can’t resist trying to find out more.

I'm sure you have experience in many BDSM-related activities - which would you say is your favourite?
You’re right, I do (grin). But my favourite would have to be good old-fashioned spanking. It reinforces the relationship between dominant and submissive while also being highly erotic for both. I’ve never had a sub who didn’t enjoy being disciplined by me.

What could a submissive expect from you as a dominant?
Strength, imagination and absolute control, both of our games and of myself. Any sub who plays with me can be sure that I’ll never let her fall, but she has to be ready for anything. Anything.

So far you haven't taken any submissives on long-term. What would make you take a permanent submissive?

To take on a permanent sub, I would have to feel a real connection – someone I could have a relationship with outside of the scenes. Someone who could submit to me in bed but be my equal in life… She’d have to be pretty damn special. 

Tied to the Billionaire is now available from Total-e-Bound: http://www.total-e-bound.com/product.asp?strParents=&CAT_ID=&P_ID=2243














And as a special offer for release day, all other BDSM books are 25% offhttp://www.total-e-bound.com/tttb.asp?utm_source=tttbpromo&utm_medium=author&utm_campaign=tiedtothebillionaire

Over the next week, you'll have the opportunity to get to know our heroes through exclusive interviews at each of our blogs. We invite you to read, comment (and drool...!) One lucky person who comments will win a $50 bookstore gift certificate. Another will get a six-pack of ebooks by the anthology authors. We'll draw the winners on the 24th of August, so you can take your time getting to know our dreamy Doms.

Cover reveal!

At long last I'm able to reveal the cover for my Clandestine Classic "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall".

thetenantofwildfellhall_ebook_800

Into the quiet village of Lindenhope comes Helen Graham, an attractive young widow and mother. Living alone with her son at Wildfell Hall, her seclusion attracts curiosity from the local people, in particular Gilbert Markham, whose interest in her is soon edged with desire—and Helen, despite herself, begins to reciprocate his love for her.

But when scandalous rumours begin to circulate about Helen’s behaviour, Gilbert is filled with anger and jealousy. Helen attempts to clear her name by offering Gilbert her diary, which reveals the dark, passionate story of her former marriage to debauched rake Arthur Huntingdon, whose sexual and sensual desires fill her with excitement and pleasure but precipitate a gradual descent into hell.

Gilbert believes he could forgive her anything, but the lies continue to spread, threatening Helen’s peace of mind and, above all, her physical safety. Will the secrets of Helen’s past get in the way of their future?

"Wildfell Hall" will be released on 6 September from this link: http://www.total-e-bound.com/product.asp?strParents=&CAT_ID=306&P_ID=2297 and I can't wait!

Smut By The Sea!

Last Saturday I made a trip over to Scarborough to attend Smut By The Sea, an event organised by the wonderful Victoria Blisse to promote the SBTS anthologies. 

Most of the writers present had agreed to do readings, something I decided not to do on this occasion due to a combination of stage fright and a highly unsexy accent.

Aside from Victoria Blisse, Lucy Felthouse and Jennifer Denys, all of whom I had met before and was very happy to see again, I met Janine Ashbless, Rachel Kincaid, K.D. Grace, Lexie Bay, Tilly Hunter, Tabitha Rayne and Gemma Parkes, as well as Kevin Mitnik Blisse who does a great job of running my website. For anyone I didn’t shake hands with, sorry I missed you, I was the one with the green hair.

First task of the day was checking out the Erotic Tombola and the stalls set up by sponsors, selling erotic novels and bespoke toys. Crowned Jewels (they of the toys, which were so remarkably stunning that some had been mounted in frames) handed out goody bags and discounts, along with a gold-dusted chocolate cake which was my own guilty pleasure. I came away from the tombola with an erotic anthology and a pack of Ellora’s Cave cover cards – always welcome.

Unfortunately an emergency called me away halfway through the day, so I didn’t see the Slave Nano event or the erotica writers’ panel. However, I was treated to several readings by some very accomplished writers, all of whom managed to hold the attention of the audience regardless of any nerves they may have felt. Particular kudos has to go to Ashley Lister, who read three comic poems; Jennifer Denys, who had everyone in hysterics with some comedy-romance dialogue; and Rachel Kincaid, who managed to make a piece about premature ejaculation so intense that I heard someone behind me whisper “Wow!”

So maybe next time I will have the nerve to read something of my own – who knows?


Major thanks to Victoria Blisse and all concerned for a fantastic event – I hope the second SBTS anthology does as well as the first.
