Facing the consequences

Fear.  Some times it is craved. The excitement and apprehension of facing something scary and unknown. Perhaps an exhilarating ride at the fairground, or watching a horror movie or may be the challenge of doing something for the first time – like abseiling. In BDSM, it is part of the anticipation, when a scene is about to begin.  If bound or gagged, it is the racing heartbeats. To be blindfolded, … Read more…

Maintaining the roles

How to maintain submission when perhaps the kink  is only infrequent or life is too busy to find the time? Many couples who are in a D/s relationship or may be a Domestic Discipline lifestyle, use maintenance to keep their roles in focus. Re-affirming submission through some form of ritual or in many cases – a spanking. Now my characters don’t have the opportunities all the time, but the Dominant … Read more…

Transforming the characters

Does a Dominant have to be rich and successful? Well no. In fact they usually ordinary everyday people, in everyday jobs and blend in without being noticed. Yet my Dominant is a wealthy CEO. As a child I loved to write SciFi stories. The unbelievable could be made believable just because it is fantasy. If the characters need to travel to one end of the galaxy to other, they can; … Read more…

The two lead characters are there and now there are others too. … Read more…

Discussing the limits

The genre of BDSM has become popular for romance readers, especially stories about Domination and submission. Things which were once taboo have become more acceptable to read about. When I developed my storyline for the series, I didn’t want my heroine to be inexperienced.  Many D/s books have the heroine as innocent or naive about their sexual awakening or for those who are sexually active, they are unaware or unsure … Read more…

Building a series, what to say

What to say without spoiling the story lines.  I don’t want to ruin the first book by giving away too much about the next. I can tell you the title: Trust Me to Own You A theme is developing and trust is a big player.  It is not the only … Read more…

Writing the important scenes

Early on in the book is an intense sex scene. Am I comfortable writing about sex? Well, I have to be, it’s rather integral to the story. However, I didn’t put the erotic scene up front to be within the 15-20% of the book that falls within the free sample. It happened to be necessary to the plot to have the sexual encounter early on.  Writing about sex is something … Read more…

Setting the scene

It’s a book about BDSM and kink. So, is there a dungeon?  Well, you could search through my book and not find much mention of the word. Does that mean there isn’t one? I’m not revealing…. The majority of kinksters do not have a dungeon. They have a bedroom or perhaps a basement or an outhouse. There maybe a few pieces of specialist furniture purchased or built. But for most … Read more…
