First Course — The Amuse Bouche

Whispered Pain (by Ashley Fontainne): “Who am I? Where am I? How do I escape this black void? Help. Please, help me.”

The Scarlett Mark (by Shelley Kassian): “A Lord cursed. A Princess cast aside. A Mark that could change everything!”

Second Course — The Appetizer

Changing it up a little this week, I’m sharing one of my favorite novels of all time, The Big Sleep, by Raymond Chandler. You might be familiar with the movie starring Bogie and Bacall, but, take my word for it, the book is even better. I saw the movie first, many years ago, and later found the book and was wowed by it. Since Chandler is long dead, this book is posthumously printed by Black Lizard Publishing, a Penguin Imprint for classic books. They set the price. Here’s the blurb for it.

“When a dying millionaire hires Philip Marlowe to handle the blackmailer of one of his two troublesome daughters, Marlowe finds himself involved with more than extortion. Kidnapping, pornography, seduction, and murder are just a few of the complications he gets caught up in.”

If you love murder mysteries of the noir, hard-boiled detective kind, get this first of the Philip Marlowe, Private Investigator, books and enjoy. It’s set in Los Angeles, my old stompin’ ground, and it’s quite authentic. The language is also perfect. I try to emulate his brilliance with each of my mystery-based books.

Journey Series in Print-smThird Course — The Entrée

Are you familiar with my Journey Family series? There are seven books, all about the five Journey siblings, their father, their trusted and loved housekeeper, and their spouses. Meet Ace, Deuce, Queenie, Trey, and Jackie (their mother was a poker player and named the five), Leo and Consuelo. These books are about Texans, and the main action takes place in that state on the large cattle ranch, Journey’s End. Each sibling has his or her own story, and often other siblings are mentioned in the various books, though it is not strictly necessary to read all the books in order.

The series has been available on Kindle for a while, but now the books are available as a three volume paperback set as well. The first paperback volume (Journey’s Luck) includes, Liv’s Journey and Ace-High Flush; the second volume (Journey’s Turn) includes, Spanking Her Highness and Deuce’s Dancer; and the third paperback (Journey’s Chances) includes, Jackie Draws a Straight, Journey’s End, and a bonus novella, Journey’s Valentine. If you’re into paperbacks, the set is worth having. If you’d like the Kindle books, they’re available as individuals. Following any of the links in this Entrée segment will lead you to the descriptions and excerpts from each book.

Fourth Course — The Dessert

I would like to give a public thank you to Joey Buchan, the terrific person who put me in touch with so many drag queens for the book I’m writing right now. Without him, I couldn’t have begun the work. You can find Joey at Blushing Books and Mystic Books, where he is an awesome publishing professional.

All characters depicted on this blog are adults. You should be an adult, too. If you’re not 18+, please find entertainment somewhere else. Thank you.

Saturday Spankings

Cover: Deuce's DancerWelcome to my little corner of the internet. I hope you enjoy your moment here.

Recently, I was listening to smooth jazz from my own collection, when “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight” by David Sanborn and featuring Lizz Wright (of the golden, sexy voice), started playing. That song was the inspiration for Deuce and Pilar finally making love in Deuce’s Dancer. Neither wanted to spend even one more lonely night. I love how music can inspire us.

In this segment, from Deuce’s Dancer, after they’d established their sexy relationship, Pilar is gives an unconscious signal when Deuce mentions a spanking. She says no, but her gesture says something else entirely.

“A good spanking ought to do it.”

A variety of emotions crossed her face. Surprise. Confusion. Her cheeks got a little pink, and her nipples started to harden under her light, summer dress. And then she did something that made his cock twitch. The tip of her tongue snuck out and tested her lip. It was an unconscious gesture, but the sensuality it projected had him by the balls in a heartbeat.

This lady likes spankings.

If you want more of Deuce’s Dancer, I have several pages and character profiles waiting for you. And, of course, the book is available now at Blushing Books, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and All Romance eBooks.

Hop along for more fun!

woman lollipop 6601868_sIn my writing, good girl spankings are virtually always erotic spankings. That’s what I think is fun, personally, and so that’s what I convey to my readers. After all, if you’re being good, you ought to get the best possible spanking outcome.

Some people might differ with my methods, and look at good girl spankings as spankings that are all about catharsis, something one needs and requests of one’s partner. I think there’s a place for that in spanking novels, too. It does happen in real life, and even though the book is fiction doesn’t mean real life can’t be portrayed in it.

I have many friends who are very happy with their good girl spankings of all sorts. I think that’s one of the marks of a true spanko. (There’s room for everybody under the tent, so don’t run away.)

When I think of good girl spankings, they are almost always with a hand or a belt. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a “good girl caning,” for example, or a “good girl tawsing.” I suppose one could happen, but it seems unlikely. In my book, Deuce’s Dancer, my heroine really loves getting spanked. Good girl spankings are just part of her psyche. So where does the fun stop and the real punishment begin?

What do you think of when I say, “good girl spanking”? How extreme is that to you? How extreme is believable in fiction? I know everyone is different, and all of that, but what do you think?
