#WipItUp – Sampling the Goods – The Cane Shop

For this week’s WipItUp I’ve revisited a work in progress that never made it. I posted it over a year ago on PK Corey’s Fantasy Friday as a short story. It was fun to write – a little spanking parody of a scene from a famous film/book. Once I’d written it, the characters took on their own life. I added others, based around the idea of lessons that explored different … Read more…

Monday Morsel – Polishing

It’s a holiday here, so today’s post is a little later in the day, but it is still Monday here.  Just finished another WIP, a little collection is building and I hope there will be a flurry of publishing this summer. One of these books takes my favourite characters into new territory and the story below is part of that exploration. Gemma’s submission has generally been the bedroom kind – … Read more…

Monday Morsel – His Instructions

Something different for this weeks morsel. Nothing from one of my books, this is a conversation between two people. A slightly one-sided conversation. He has a list of requirements, instructions, expectations… Her job is to listen. ***** “Let us go over the timetable, shall we?” Before him, kneeling on the floor, was a naked young woman. He had allowed her the additional comfort of a cushion beneath her knees. “Yes. … Read more…

Fairy Tales Retold

I’ve had tucked away a couple of spanking stories and I’ve added them to my collection on the sidebar under a new menu – Fairy Tales Retold. I hope you enjoy my new versions of some classic fairy tales. Rapunzel’s Hairbrush – A light-hearted twist on Tangled. The Glass Slipper and the Cane – or maybe it should be called Cinder’s Revenge 🙂 Now if there are any other fairy … Read more…

Making a conversation

When it comes to writing a little fiction, I’m inclined to be spontaneous. A burst of words spews out and takes shape on the page. Later, I massage them into something worthy and usable. Some fit together and merge into longer texts, a short story, a chapter…. some stay little, have a life of their own and linger detached….. here is one. **** “The housekeeper is not happy with the … Read more…

Giveaways and a new story

It is the season for giving. So for a limited period – 25th/26th Dec – I’m giving away the Trust Me trilogy on AllRomance (formats include Kindle, epub and PDF) . For those who enjoyed Jason and Gemma’s personal journey into BDSM in the Trust Me book, here is a bonus story: Jason and Gemma are in a D/s relationship. When he commands, she obeys.  When he desires her, he … Read more…

Introducing the Dom

The third book – Trust Me to Keep You – continues the story of Jason and Gemma. In this volume, I shift the focus from time to time on to Jason.  So many BDSM books are told solely from the perspective of the submissive girlfriend / lover  and the Dominant is left in the dark. In this book I bring Jason out into the limelight a little more. He  still … Read more…

Introducing the characters

Unless you start a book with a birth day, your characters are already fully fledged people with personalities and attributes. Plunging into their lives with little knowledge of their backgrounds, their pasts and influences, means there is a mystery about them. I’m not writing a biography, but somehow there needs to be a background development for each key character.  I need to unpeel the layers of an onion to expose … Read more…
