#Wipitup – Rules are rules

No cover or title for this Sci-Fi (more of an alternative reality) work in progress, but it’s creeping closer to completion.  Ursa, my rebellious heroine, has been given to Xane to work as his servant. By law she must wear a collar. *** Xane rested on the edge of the desk and fished out the collar from his pocket. “Now, Ursa. This is non-negotiable. You will wear your ID collar.” … Read more…

#WipItUp – A beautiful specimen

Revealing some of my current Work in Progress today. A sci-fi story set in the fictional world of Chandros. Xane has been out collecting taxes, except when taxes aren’t paid by a Minorem commune they must forfeit some of their young people instead. He’s just returned with a new shipment, including Ursa, who’s not happy at being selected. *** Logging out of the system, he strode along a featureless corridor … Read more…

#WipitUp – Challenges

The trouble with works in progress is drawing a line underneath the constant editing and deciding enough is a enough, publish it. Putting the breaks on is a challenge, so when I came to merge three books into one for publishing on Kindle Unlimited (one borrow=three books!), I had to hold back my writer’s instinct to edit them again, make those minor adjustments. The three books are still available separately, … Read more…

#WipitUp – a privilege, not a conquest

Another book is with the editor. Always some trepidation about what will come back! For now, I can share a little on WipitUp Wednesday. No title as yet. It’s a Sci-Fi spanking romance, but more of an alternative reality Sci-Fi, so no aliens with green blood or pointy ears. Ursa has been given to Xane. She’s his servant, sent in exchange for unpaid taxes and remains his until the community … Read more…

#WipItUp – Friendly chat

Hello and on this Wednesday WipItUp, I’m sharing my latest release – Indulge Me. Friends are invaluable when needing a sounding board. Saffron has just played an interesting tasting game with Gideon in the wine cellar of a castle. He left her with a proposal and she’s wondering whether to go ahead with it or not. *** She needed a companion, a confidante to bounce off her worries. It came … Read more…

#WIPitUp – It’s all in the preparation

Last week’s WIPitUp ended here, so I’m continuing a little further on with Gideon sharing a very expensive bottle of wine. *** He grasped her shoulders, pressing her to his chest and her tongue darted into his mouth. She tasted a plethora of flavours, traces of all the wines they’d tried and the aroma of his breath exploded her taste buds, sending waves of delicious fruits and nuts up into … Read more…

#WipItUp – it started with a bottle of red

I’ve a new book, Indulge Me, out next week, so this week’s WipItUp is an ideal chance to share a smattering of words from it. It’s the book I’ve been cooking for a while, and one that I’ve enjoyed researching the most. It rather stemmed from an unfortunate incident – my wedding anniversary. The man and I went out for a delicious meal and shared a bottle of ‘expensive’ red. I was … Read more…

#WipitUp – Opening gambit

I’m kicking around ideas for new stories, especially those important opening chapters. What will grab somebody’s attention, how to pitch it, how dark to go, how much story to reveal, and so on. I’m trying the jump right in and run with it approach for this idea and here at the WIP hop is a good place to throw it out there for viewing. No clues to this one, except … Read more…

#WipitUp – Watching him dance

Welcome to Wednesday’s WipItUp – a showcase for works in progress or recently published. I think this counts as recently published after one week out. Sophia and the Duke is knocking about in the top Historical Erotica bestsellers on Amazon, which is a good way to end the summer for me. I’m watching the nights draw in already and thinking about how to spend the evenings…writing of course. Sophia, my … Read more…

#WipitUp – I’ve a good mind to have you soundly thrashed!

This week’s WipItUp picks up from Last week’s Work in Progress, a Regency spanking romance – supposedly bereaving Sophia has been caught attempting to kiss a naive young man by her formidable French grandmother, Maria.   *** Sophia jumped, scrambling away from the young man, creating necessary space. It was too late. Maria, clothed in all her finery, had filled the doorway and behind her moved the swaying, swirling throng of dancers. … Read more…

#WipitUp – How not be behave while in mourning!

Today is WiPitUp and a chance to share from my current work in progress, a Regency spanking romance, which has the working title The Duchess and the Huntsman. Sophia is a widow and has been kept out of sight of high society for nearly twelve months as she mourns her husband – could be worse, Victorian wives were expected to stay in mourning for two and half years!  She’s crept downstairs to … Read more…

Imagining naughtiness – #SpankAtoZ #WipitUp

Today’s letter is I for imagination and it forms part of my WipitUp Wednesday post too. Fiction is all about imagining the make-believe, conjuring up fantasies and putting words to them. These scenes could be my fantasies, although I’m not a bottomless pit of ideas, so I also try to imagine what other people might fantasize about and want to read when they seek out an erotic book. Then, within the story, … Read more…

In the Corner – #SpankAtoZ #WipItUp

Hello and welcome to both SpankAtoZ and WipitUp. For today’s letter – C – I bring you the utter humiliation of corner time!  Those two walls coming together right before the nose and not knowing what is happening behind your back. Viola, the heroine of my WIP Viola’s Heart Strings is the wife who insulted her husband’s ancestry in front of the servants. Not the done thing back in Victorian … Read more…

#Wipitup – The Naughty Receptionist

Sharing from my latest spanking romance, due out soon. Megan works as a dental receptionist and she is very keen to meet the new dentist, Jeremy. … Read more…

#WipItUp – A little foot worshipping

Welcome Wipsters to a little kinky foot play.  From one of my current works in progress, I’m amassing a few at the moment. Gemma has much on her mind and Jason has a cure for her stress – worship him. *** I’d hunkered down on the floor of his study in the White House—not our usual house on a Friday—propped up on a pile of cushions with a fleecy blanket … Read more…

#Wipitup – Tell Me

#WipitUp – Playing the scene

Hello Wipsters to Wednesday’s WIP and I’m sharing an excerpt from Cherished by Him. This is the last part of Gemma and Jason’s interrupted scene. Jason has been making up for lost time and both are keen to see things through to completion, even if Jason requires some humiliation along the way. *** I arched my back, rocking back and forth, then I caught my reflection in the full-length mirror … Read more…
