Cougar or Not, Here I Come!

Happy New Year's Eve!

Some of you probably have big plans for tonight. I know I do! But I realize you aren't all lucky enough to have brothers willing to share their new jigsaw puzzles with you while staring at the Netflix screen and doing the whole "What do you want to watch?" "I don't know. What do you want to watch?" routine.

For you, there's COUGAR'S EVE.

Cougar's Eve is a book about a robot jungle cat trying to make it in the big city. Just kidding! It's about a resort where older women hook up with younger men (and the pretty receptionist too, if they're lucky) on New Year's Eve.

If you're looking for a book to share New Year's Eve because your brother's hogging all the puzzle pieces, you can buy Cougar's Eve as an ebook or in print from such retailers as:

Twelve Days of Holiday Books: Owned for Christmas

Owned for Christmas
by Willa Edwards

Kate Baker is nervous about meeting her boyfriend Daniel’s family. When she walks into the family home to find Grant, her former Dom, spending the holidays with them too, her world turns upside down. How can she spend Christmas with the man who shattered her heart and broke her trust in the whole BDSM scene?

Although she had no idea that Grant and Daniel were brothers, Grant revives all those needs that Daniel can’t fulfill. But she won’t give up the man who helped mend her broken heart after Grant shattered it—even if she has to bury the submissive part of herself to do it.

A year ago, Grant Farrell left the woman he loved—and the best sub he’s ever controlled—to tend the family ranch after his father’s death. It almost tore his heart out to leave Kate but he had no other choice. But he doesn’t realize how much it hurt them both until she shows up at his family’s home on his brother’s arm.

Twelve Days of Holiday Books: A Satyr for Midwinter

A Satyr for Midwinter
by Teresa Noelle Roberts

Laeca, Lady of Thermanae, missed out on the incredible good looks that bless the rest of her family--not to mention the talent for healing and sex-magic.

What she has is determination, pride, honor, and an unwavering dedication to the land and people of Thermanae. All its people, both human and satyr. She can't remember the last time she let herself have fun. Sex is something that happens on the erotically charged Soranian holy days--if she actually has time to attend the festivals.

When a sick satyr collapses at her feet on Midwinter's Day, Laeca realizes she'll be passing on the yet another festival in order to nurse him, hoping common sense and herb tea will make up for lack of healing magic. But when she realizes Kallios is at death's door because he wants to follow his murdered beloved, she makes a vow on her family honor to save him. By any means necessary. Including by restoring his will to live by reminding him how much fun sex is.

In the Soranian Empire, though, vows made on holy days have unexpected consequences. Or maybe Kallios' dead lover's ghost understands what the living need better than they do. Before the Longest Night is done, Laeca will find her magic and risk her life. Kallios will learn his dead lover isn't necessarily gone. And all of them, including the dead man, will be changed by the powers of love, magic and the Longest Night.

Bad-Bad-Naughty-Bad Santa: A True Lesbian Sex Story

This Christmas, I've written you a story. I almost hesitate to call it a story, because it's really just stuff that happened. Naughty stuff that happened when I visited my girlfriend at work:
Two sexy women in lingerie on white throne — Stock Photo
(c) juice_team

Bad-Bad-Naughty-Bad Santa: A True Lesbian Sex Story
by Giselle Renarde

She was fully dressed in the time it took me to wrestle a red thong up my thighs. My knees weren’t happy—they’d spent too much time being ground into the industrial carpet which, after a while, starts to feel like the scrubby side of a dish sponge. They’re probably made of the same plastic, industrial carpet and dish sponges.

I don’t usually wear thongs, but this one is special because she gave it to me. It’s red. And black. It’s red and black leopard print, to be exact, with red lace at the sides. It’s an odd combination—floral lace and leopard print—but I don’t love it for its looks.

I love it because it’s part of a set, the rest of which doesn’t belong to me. She bought herself the bra and the bikini panties. She’s got more body to keep in place—that’s how she sees it. So this “set,” such as it is, consists of a 38D bra, XL bikini panties, and an extra-small thong. That’s us: Santa and her little elf.

Actually, there’s one more element which, at this time of year, probably explains why I wore the thong to meet her: each piece in the set has at its centre a little red ribbon with a gold-toned ornament. It reminds me of something you’d see on a Christmas tree.

Have I told you how much my girlfriend loves Christmas? I can’t even deal with her house in December. It’s like a jungle of ornaments. It makes me claustrophobic. You’re constantly stepping over trees and figurines and nativities and angels. Lord Almighty, the cherub-cheeked life-sized dolls! Try fucking your girlfriend with a carolers watching. I dare you.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QS5AB7I?tag=dondes-20
It’s too much.

Which is why I keep showing up at her place of employment, pretending I’m only there to help with whichever unpaid project she’s taken on this week. It’s always something. She’s oddly generous with her time, for someone who has so little to give.

And I weasel my way in by lending a hand… lending two hands… and a mouth…

Case in point: yesterday, the day of the leopard print underwear, we’d probably had six orgasms between us by the time I struggled back into my thong. Everyone else had gone home. Still, it’s risky to fuck at work. Anybody could walk in at any moment. I tell myself I’m not excited by such things, but if that were the case I’d probably just beg her to come home with me, or follow her back to the Christmas Village she calls a house.

Risk ups the ante. It’s not that I want to get caught, and I’m pretty sure she doesn’t want to either, but that possibility doesn’t exist in any other space we access… aside from outdoors. She entertains fantasies of sex in the wilderness, but it reminds me too much of fucking my Grade Twelve English teacher in the car. Been there, done that.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QL57VWI?tag=dondes-20
Back to this thong. Back to this red and black leopard print thong with the red lace sides and the red ribbon with the little gold ornament. That’s all I had on when she pulled me into her lap.

“Do you want more?” she asked, which surprised me since we’d had MORE twice already.

As it happens, there’s a huge mirror right beside the chair she was sitting in, so when I fell into her lap I could see our reflection. And because she’s big and I’m small, and because I’d fallen into her lap with one arm around her shoulder, the scene shining back at me was a picture postcard of a bad, bad girl and a naughty, bad Santa.

And, for the first time in my life, I got the kink.

So I asked, “Can you see me when I’m sleeping? Do you know when I’m awake?”

She laughed, but she didn’t answer before walking her fingers under the tight elastic waist of the thong she’d bought me.

I whispered in her ear, “Have I been a good little girl, Santa?”

Her breath hitched when I asked that question. I think she’d been fighting the scene, but that hooked her. She said, “You’ve been a very good girl all year long.”

“Aren’t you gonna ask me what I want for Christmas, Santa?”

“I don’t care what you want for Christmas,” she whispered, with her mouth pressed right up against my ear. “You’ll take what I give you.”

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PGS5U06?tag=dondes-20
Her fingers parted my slick lips. She put them inside me. Why did they feel so huge every time? Why did I never get used to them? You’d think, after more than six years, sex would seem mundane… but it never does. It’s always fresh, even when we’ve done the same thing a million times.

“God, you’re wet,” she said, like my arousal caused her actual physical pain. “I just can’t get enough.”

“Are you sure you should be touching me like this, Santa?” Now that we’d entered the scene, I wouldn’t let up. “I think you’re a bad Santa. I think you’re a bad, bad, naughty, bad Santa.”

“You love it,” she said as she traced my admittedly excessive juices across my clit. “And I love your pussy.”

“Why, Santa?”

She bit my earlobe, tugged on it, before saying, “I love your pussy because it’s such a tight little pussy, such a wet little pussy, such a sweet little pussy. Your pussy always wants more. It’s always ready for more.”

The way she held me in that moment was less like a child on Santa’s knee and more the way a little girl wrangles a writhing kitten. Not that I was trying to escape her clutches. Only, I was so overstimulated my body fought against itself. I wrapped both arms around her shoulders as she madly scoured my clit. I was a pulpy, raw mess down there. Every nerve ending exploded like the fireworks we watched over Niagara Falls two Christmases ago.

“Bad Santa,” I whispered, as we listened to voices in the hall. They couldn’t get in without a key. Still… if they had a key, they could get it.

http://excessica.com/eden/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=30&products_id=236
My nipples hardened as we waited for the people to pass. When we couldn’t hear their voices any longer, Sweet twisted my tits with one hand, rubbing my pussy with the other. She held her kitten tight to her chest. My body was hers to play with. Always.

“You think you’re naughty?” she asked me. “I think you’re nice.”

“No,” I assured her, opening my legs a little wider to prove my point. “No, I’m Naughty, Santa. I’m a naughty bad girl.”

Whose naughty bad girl?”

Your naughty bad girl!”

My fingers dug into her skin while my toes walked the plank. I couldn’t escape the wild overstimulation, not because she’d trapped me in her lap, but because I was clinging to her shoulders all the while. Even when I couldn’t take any more, when my thighs snapped shut around her hand, I hugged her tightly around the neck. I remained in her lap.

“Had enough?” she asked, though she hadn’t stopped tickling my clit.

That’s an impossible question. I can never answer it.

But she pulled her hand from the thong she’d bought me and kissed me while I rested in her lap and her kisses were like candy, so good.

And when we were done, I looked at us in the mirror—this nearly-naked elf in the lap of a fully-clothed full-figured feline—and I couldn’t resist saying, “Thank you, Santa.”

Her work—which has been called “poignantly erotic,” “heartbreaking,” and “exceptional”—has appeared in 20 year’s best volumes as well as about 100 other anthologies from Soul’s Road Press, Harlequin Spice, and Cleis Press. She finds passion in rock music, clever words, piercing blue eyes, the wind in her hair, and the scent of the ocean. Visit AndreaDaleAuthor.com for more information.

TERESA NOELLE ROBERTS writes sexy, magical tales for lusty romantics of all persuasions.

The two halves of Sophie—Dayle A. Dermatis (aka Andrea Dale) and Teresa Noelle Roberts—met more than two decades ago at a writers’ conference. Talking nonstop, they closed down the hotel bar and went somewhere else to keep on talking. Although they've always lived on opposite sides of the country (and for a few years, on opposite sides of the Atlantic), they've remained very close friends, and it was only natural that they should start writing together as well.

Hot shot Boston lawyer Ian Pierce has everything but peace of mind. Christmas Eve finds him alone, wading through the slush to his BMW so he can drive back to his lonely luxury apartment. Then everything goes black. He awakens with an aching skull to find himself in a freezing, boarded-up garage occupied by a street kid. At first he blames the dodgy-looking youth for his troubles, but before long he realizes the raggedy girl who rescued him from the gutter may well be a Christmas angel in disguise.

Every December I feature holiday books here at Donuts and Desires. For the next twelve days (or fourteen, or however long this magical celebration decides to go on) you'll find out about great holiday-themed books from some of your favourite authors. Enjoy!

Then, One Frozen Christmas Eve
by Spencer Dryden

On a snowy, frigid Christmas Eve in Minnesota, a heating technician makes an emergency call to a townhome without heat. Don is unable to repair the unit and tells Becky, the occupant, she must vacate the premises and stay in a hotel for her own safety. Becky breaks down and tells Don she has no money and no place to go. She has no friends or family locally and has maxed out her credit cards relocating from San Diego. Don invites her to stay with him until the furnace can be replaced.

Don is smitten by her good looks and warm, inviting manner. He begins to fantasize about a romantic connection, but is restrained by a crippling fear of his sexual inadequacy. Safe at his apartment, Becky turns up the heat on the shy divorcee. Can she melt his fears of intimacy and give him an unforgettable Christmas?

"Anonymous" sex, anybody? 50% off Dec 17-19th 2014!

Once upon a time, an author called Giselle wrote a novel called Anonymous... and they all lived happily ever after. The End.

That was a pretty crappy story because it didn't include YOU.  The reader comes in somewhere between the beginning and the end, by picking up a copy. Anonymous is kind of a big ticket item (regular price on the ebook is $7), so those of us who like saving money will be happy to hear it's on sale today, tomorrow and Friday at 50% off.

Anonymous was the first book I wrote that I considered a full-length novel. I'd already written Ondine, but Ondine clocked in under 50,000 word, and at the time I felt like 50k was the magic "novel" number. I'm not so picky about word counts anymore. I know a novel when I see one.

Anonymous is about a man joyfully delving into his bisexuality with the eager help of his wife. Together, they hire an anonymous male prostitute so Nathaniel can experience hot man-on-man sex while Hannah watches. Before they meet up with Mr. Anonymous, they go out for a celebratory dinner where Nathaniel lays eyes on the handsomest, coolest waiter in the history of handsome, cool waiters. They go through with the anonymous sex night, but Nathaniel's hooked on the waiter guy and Hannah develops a secret obsession with finding out who Mr. Anonymous really is.

So it's a stalker novel, really. But not in a scary way.

Also, if you know Toronto you're going to recognize a landmark or two.

Anonymous is 50% off until December 19th 2014, so if I were you I would grab the ebook right away from http://www.amberquill.com/store/p/724-Anonymous.aspx

Enjoy!

#MySexySaturday Three Fan Faves and a Newbie for #99cents!

Earlier this week I told you about my new holiday mini-anthology, Have Yourself A Sexy Lesbian Christmas. It contains three spicy stories fans have expressed BIG LOVE for over the years. It also contains a new story I wrote just for this collection.

The new one's called Love It or Love It. I came up with the idea while staring out the window (a HUGE part of being a writer) and noticed two cars had collided on my street. The vehicles weren't too messed up and nobody appeared to be hurt. The drivers were exchanging insurance information or whatever people do in that situation (I don't drive, I don't know) and I couldn't help thinking... wouldn't it be nice if they fell in love?

Aww... a meet-cute is born!

This week, in celebration of My Sexy Saturday, I'd like to share the first 7 paragraphs from my new story, Love It or Love It:

“What do you want for Christmas?”

“Ugh. Nothing. I don’t know.” Lili flopped on the couch, sending clouds of cat hair into the air. Snuggie jumped on top of her and started kneading her belly. Petting his ginger neck, she asked, “Do we really need to celebrate Christmas every year? I’m just about done with holidays. What a waste of time.”

I took two steps away to show her I was literally taken aback. “You’re kidding, right?”

“And money,” she added. “Christmastime is such a drain. I don’t see what you get out of it, Nor.”

“You mean beyond the fact that if it wasn’t for the mad, frantic Christmastime mentality we’d never have met?”

A smile broke slowly across Lili’s lips. “True.”

She didn’t say anything as Snuggie made her belly his own personal cat bed. When she closed her eyes I knew she was remembering the day we met, remembering the way we met. So I turned up the Christmas music on the radio and I lifted her shoes from her feet and sat at the end of the couch to rub her ice-cold toes.

Have Yourself a Sexy Lesbian Christmas is on sale at the low introductory price of $0.99. Under a buck for 4 sexy stories! What a deal!

I hate myself a bit right now...

...and here's why:

I think I've been unconsciously downplaying the queer content in my books recently. That's not cool, and thus the self-hatred. But I know why I've been doing it, even if I've been doing it without meaning to do it. I keep getting subtle whispers in my ear that romance readers don't like bisexual women. Bad, bad, yucky, uncomfortable!

I've let those whispers get to me and it's impacted the way I market my books--but not anymore, baby! I'm here, I'm queer and you're used to it, but from now on I'll make a concerted effort to show the reading public my books are queer too.

If some readers don't like bisexual women, queer women, trans women, lesbian women or genderfucked assholes like me, they'd better steer clear of my writing. The end.

Cougar's Eve ebook cover
After that sickly sweet introduction, let me say, "Hi! It's My Sexy Saturday! And the focus of this post is my wonderful new holiday book, Cougar's Eve!"

Cougar's Eve is a NYE novella about two middle-aged women attending a wild cougar party at a luxury resort (thought one is very reluctant and there is some mild trickery involved in getting her there). Lori's all for this hooking-up-with-younger-men scene. Trish hasn't been with a man since her husband left her, and that was forever ago.

Maybe Trish will meet a special young man who will turn her world upside-down. Or maybe it'll be a special young woman. Or maybe it'll be two guys and Trish will be upside-down. Or maybe she'll have one guy behind her and a gorgeous girl working her front...

I'll leave it to your imagination.

Just kidding! Here are seven paragraphs of Trish being seduced by Raye the receptionist. Avert your eyes if you don't like bisexual women...

Spreading her shirt wide open, Raye traced her fingertips across Trish’s bare skin. Trish hadn’t been touched this way in so many years… so many, many, many years.

“This is a pretty bra,” Raye said, gently touching the borders. “Simple cream-coloured lace. It’s classic.”

“Thank you,” Trish replied.

“Can I take it off?”

What?”

With a sly smile, Raye said, “I want to look at your breasts. I want to see them naked.”

A blast of heat spread across Trish’s skin, but she said nothing.

It's Time for Some Holiday Book Promotions! (This Means YOU)

Hey, fellow authors!

I'm really into Christmas this year. Not sure why. You're talking to the Grinch who hasn't put up a tree in 4 years.

I don't know about you, but at Christmastime I'm happy to consume content I wouldn't normally go for. I'm talking the sappiest, schmaltziest, silliest movies. Have you written a holiday book that falls into this category? Okay, it doesn't have to be bad. I'm willing to promote GOOD books, too, if you're going to twist my arm about it. I want to promote any book you've written with a holiday theme--well, as many as I can manage. I'll do my best, but I'm a team of one over here.

If you want me to feature your holiday book here at Donuts and Desires (or, hell, it could be someone else's book if you just really liked it), fill out the form below. I think it's pretty straightforward, except maybe where it asks for a cover image URL. To get this, right-click on your book cover on a site like All Romance or Smashwords and select "Copy Image Location." Then past that URL into the thingy. Clear? Okay. Good. Go:

Cougar's Eve: it's oh-so-printy!

 
It's December 1st. Feeling stressed yet?  Well, don't. Kick back and prepare yourself for New Year's (it's only a month away!) with my new book, COUGAR'S EVE.

Okay, okay--Cougar's Eve doesn't officially release until Friday, but you can buy the PRINT version and the LARGE PRINT version right now!

Trish has big plans for New Year's Eve: a giant bowl of popcorn, a nice warm blanket on the couch, and binge-watching TV all night long. With any luck, she'll be fast asleep when the clock strikes twelve.

Not if her vivacious friend from the gym gets a say! Lori has salacious plans, and she's persuaded Trish to join the party-even if it takes a touch of trickery to get Trish out of the house.

Trish isn't exactly overjoyed when Lori drags her to the Cougar's Eve New Year's party at a swanky resort hotel. Trish is definitely NOT a cougar. In fact, she hasn't been to bed with anyone since her husband split, and that was years ago.

When the hotel's gorgeous young receptionist teaches Trish a few tricks, she can't help wondering if Lori's had the right idea all along. One night living the cougar life couldn't ruin her forever... could it?

An erotic novella from award-winning author Giselle Renarde.

The ebook will be available later in the week from Excessica Publishing. For now, you can buy the PAPERBACK at https://www.createspace.com/5137601

LARGE PRINT EDITION (18 point, Arial font) is available here: https://www.createspace.com/5139688

And relax--it's only December 1st.

Plenty of shopping days left before... you know... THAT day.

Hey, maybe someone you know would like a copy of Cougar's Eve!

#99cents #MySexySaturday A New TABOO Box Set!

Another weekend, another steal of a deal!

Last weekend I told you about my new novel Seven Kisses.  This weekend it's a box set of taboo erotica from Terry Towers, Candi Cade, Lexi Wood, Saffron Daughter... and ME!

This book has been BANNED by... OMG, like everywhere: iTunes, Google Play, Kobo, etc, etc.

Because, you know, stepdaddies and stepdaughters, stepbrothers and stepsisters, cousins, sleep sex...

My story in Our Taboo Secret is called My American Cousin. Not much to say about it, so let's jump right into an excerpt:

There’s a movie from the 80s called “My American Cousin.” It’s about a young Canadian girl who’s got a crush on her James Dean-ish cousin from the States. All through my teen years, I fantasized that a handsome relative would drive up to the family farm and open up new worlds to me.

I never thought it would really happen.

And it didn’t—not exactly. Not the way I dreamed it would. He didn’t pull up at my family home in a stolen car like the character in the movie, but he was every bit as dreamy as James Dean. Even in a suit, I could tell he was a bad boy. He belonged in a leather jacket. I could smell it on him: black leather and cigarettes.

Robbie was the guy I’d been waiting for since I was twelve years old: my real-life American cousin. I didn’t even know he existed until my mother introduced us at a big family wedding. My heart just about stopped when our eyes met. When he said hello, I felt his voice between my legs, like a hot hand gripping me there. Squeezing. I was wet in an instant.

He said, “Nice to meet you,” but I couldn’t speak. My mother asked him all sorts of questions. He didn’t take his eyes off me as he answered. He didn’t even blink. His stare made me hot, made me sweat inside my satin gown, made my knees go all wobbly like I was going to fall on my face.

When the wedding band struck up an old doo-wop song, Robbie asked me to dance. Well, it isn’t so much that he “asked.” More like he took my hand and pulled me close, swaying with me on the dance floor.

I could feel his heartbeat. I could also feel his erection throbbing against my belly. My pussy was throbbing, too, but I bet he couldn’t feel that. I bet he could only feel my soft breasts melting into his chest. My whole body turned to liquid when he bent to my ear and whispered, “I like the way you move.”

Let's get linking, shall we? Our Taboo Secret is available now for the introductory price of $0.99, so don't think--just click:

#MySexySaturday Seven Kisses is $0.99 This Weekend Only!

Hey, I wrote a book! It's a dark romance called Seven Kisses! And if you buy it this weekend at Amazon, it's only $0.99!

I used to have this view that authors who sold their novels for under a buck were seriously undervaluing themselves and their work. Now I realize you just have to. Unless you're Stephen King, this is what you've got to do to build momentum. If you're lucky. Which I usually am... not.

But enough about my failure to thrive. It's My Sexy Saturday and you know what that means: I get to showcase 7 paragraphs from my new book.

This week's theme is Thanksgiving and family and stuff, so I was super-super tempted to feature Adam and Sheree's Family Christmas (because brother/sister incest!) but I think it's enough that Gabrielle, my protagonist in Seven Kisses, is a total daddy's girl. Not in a sex way, despite what Mme de Villeneuve suggests in one scene later in the book.

But let's keep things light for now. Here are the first 7 paragraphs from Seven Kisses:

“Sounds like a fun vacation, Daddy. I’m getting a little jealous.”

“Gabby, I’ve told you a hundred times: you’re more than welcome to come along.”

“Nah, I don’t want to cramp your style.” Holding her phone to her ear, Gabrielle looked both ways before crossing the street. “Anyway, car shows aren’t exactly my thing.”

“Oh, that’s right,” her father said with a chuckle. “Instead, you’ve opted for… what’s it called, a hermit holiday?”

Gabrielle burst out laughing as she jogged across the road. “It’s called a staycation and you know it. You’re so corny, Daddy.”

“Made you smile, though.”

“True.”

...and then things get DARK. But you have to read the book to find out just how dark.

Here's where you can buy a copy of Seven Kisses (brace yourself--it's quite a list):

Okay, You've Waited Long Enough (Pre-order Seven Kisses for #99cents!)

I teased you earlier in the week with an undercover unreveal, where I only showed you the TEXT layer of the cover for my upcoming novel Seven Kisses. Today I'm showing you the whole shebang:

On my Mac, this cover appeared crisp and gorgeous. On this computer, it seems reaaaally dark... which, considering Seven Kisses is a dark romance, I guess I'll say was entirely deliberate. Can't see it at a glance? You've got to look closer. Take your time. Stare at it. I totally meant for that to happen. It's all part of my masterful marketing technique (HA!).

New news: Seven Kisses is now available for pre-order from Amazon for only $0.99. If you want this novel for $0.99, pre-order it NOW because, trust me, this price won't last:

#MySexySaturday The Book Nobody's Ever Going To Buy

I blogged earlier in the week about how a cheating spouse is the taboo nobody wants to face in erotic fiction... and how my semi-autobiographical release "My First Christmas as a Married Man's Mistress" is the ever-unpopular adultery erotica. I wonder how long it'll be on the market before somebody actually buys a copy. Anybody taking bets?

Anyhoo, here are 7 paragraphs from the book nobody buys:
A mistress never plans for the holidays. There’s no one to kiss at the stroke of midnight, that mystical juncture between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. She’s never treated to dinner on her birthday. Forget Valentine’s, too; utterly out of the question. Her heart is not warmed by fuzzy pyjamas and turkey at Christmas, unless she has friends or family to take her in.

But rarely does a mistress maintain close friendships, and often does she splinter from her family. Families like for their girls to grow into respectable women who marry and spawn. Not vixens. Not thieves. Families have no place of worth allocated to those of us who consort with the husbands of the respectable wives-and-mothers we ought to be. The image held of us as the good little girls, good little women, respectable members of society, is all at once destroyed. Disappointment infuses the gazes cast upon us. We are not what they wished for us to be…

Ah, but this is all becoming a touch too philosophical for my liking. At this rate, I may never begin my tale. And it’s a good one, too. You would be loath to miss it. As you are likely aware, if you are a reader of my work, I am far more interested in sex than philosophy. And that is precisely what this story will contain, as soon as I stop rambling about nonsense.

In fact, this is not just one story, but many stories, many little fictions fastened together by a larger fiction. The key element making this such a fascinating tale is that, while the little fictions are just that—thrilling little stories I wrote one Christmas as a special gift for my lover—the larger fiction is true. It is the tale of my lover’s gift to me, mine to him, and the gift we shared between us.

The aforementioned ‘little stories’ are what we refer to as ‘flash fiction’ in the trade. They are very short, like little flashes. I don’t like to think of them in relation to flashers; that is far too obscene for my taste. Flash fiction is like a splash of sunlight across a grey winter sky. It doesn’t last for long, but it cheers away that sadness we begin to feel as the days become shorter and the dark nights expand, along with our waistlines.

The flash, because of its conservancy of words, leaves a lasting impression on our hearts and minds. On our bodies too, I should hope, since the material flowing from my fountain pen is essentially pornography.

Before I begin my tale—and you see now how I am procrastinating, most likely out of fear that you will judge me harshly for consorting with a married person—I would like to share with you an example of a flash. This was the first in the compilation I mentioned earlier, the gift I gave to my brilliant lover. One always hesitates to give one’s writing to a man one considers brilliant, for fear he will laugh at its innocent stupidity, but it was for this reason my gift had such impact. It was something I created from my body, my heart and my mind, exclusively for him. And now I share it with you.

(...if you buy a copy mwahahahaha...)

Monsters and Shifters and Men IN PRINT!

When you release a new book, it's smart to have the print version available right away. It's stupid to wait a month and then make the paperback available. As you know, I'm fond of doing stupid things, and so Monsters and Shifters and Men, Oh My! is now available in print (fourteen million years after the ebook came out):

Just can’t get enough? Monsters and Shifters and Men, Oh My! is full of spicy paranormal romances!

Inside you’ll find a princess in hiding, a forest full of shapeshifters and a faery with a secret. Curious about that mysterious man at the coffee shop? So are baristas Saada and Toby. Meanwhile, paranormal investigators Geoff and Anna are northward bound to search for the legendary Shadow People. And how will Artemis react when she encounters a cunning incubus who knows what he wants… and takes it?

Monsters and Shifters and Men, Oh My! includes:

Shadow People
The Regular
A Tale of Fur and Flesh
Monstrous Obsession
Secrets of the Solstice Sacrifice

My First Christmas as a Married Man's Mistress

You know what's a great idea? Writing an erotic romance about an adulterous relationship.

Just kidding! It's a stupid idea, unless you like throwing your time down the toilet. Nobody buys adultery erotica. I'm not counting hotwife/wife watching stuff, because yes I know that sells like hotcakes. That's what I SHOULD have written if I wanted to sell copies and make money.

But I didn't know that when I started writing back in 2006. I didn't know what the market wanted. I barely knew what the market WAS. I just wrote about what was going on in my life, and at that time my decade-long affair with a married man was spiraling to a close.

I spent a good portion of my adult existence as a married man's mistress, so why wouldn't I write about it? That's what I figured. I had no idea adultery was the new taboo (and not in a good way). I wrote an entire short story collection (Audrey and Lawrence) about that relationship. What a waste of time. For the record, I still love those stories... but that's just me.

"My First Christmas as a Married Man's Mistress" is another adultery-themed book I stupidly wrote. It was first published in 2010 by lyd Alterotica and, at that time, was titled "A Mistress' Christmas." The publisher folded last year, as I've mentioned here before, but I didn't rush right out to republish this one because... what's the point when nobody's gonna buy it?

How's that for a defeatist attitude? That's me. I love my work but I have zero confidence in my ability to sell it.

So that's my marketing spiel. (HA!)

"My First Christmas as a Married Man's Mistress" is available again as an ebook. It's nothing like most erotic romance out there, but you can say that about most of my work. You can count on me to be different. But this one.... this one is super-different:
Giselle knows how hard it is to find a good Christmas gift for a married man. She wants to give him everything, but where would he put it? Sometimes the best place to hide a secret is in plain sight…

“This is not just one story, but many stories, many little fictions fastened together by a larger tale of forbidden love. While the little fictions are just that—thrilling narratives I wrote one Christmas as a special gift for my lover—the larger fiction is true. It is the tale of my lover’s gift to me, mine to him, and the gift we shared between us.”

Originally published as A Mistress’ Christmas, My First Christmas as a Married Man’s Mistress is a strange and dreamy holiday trip through one young woman’s illicit love affair.

#MySexySaturday Shadow People

Earlier in the week, I posted about a new ebook called Shadow People. This novelette about paranormal investigators searching for legendary Inuit beings appears in Monsters and Shifters and Men, Oh My! so it's possible you've already read it. If not, I've arranged for Shadow People to be FREE at Amazon this weekend! No reason not to grab it!

But in case you're not convinced, here are seven paragraphs from the middle of their investigation, when Anna's boss Geoff is obviously having trust issues where their translator is concerned...

Trailing behind Tukkuttok, Geoff leaned in so close Anna could feel his breath on her ear. “It seems we’re being stonewalled.”

“Right,” Anna chuckled. “It’s a conspiracy of elders across three Arctic territories.”

“Keep your voice down.” Geoff grabbed her forearm as he gazed up ahead at their translator.

“What, you think Tukkuttok is altering the elders’ statements?” she whispered. “That doesn’t make sense. You were there. You saw their reactions.”

“Think about it: who set up all our meetings?”

“Tukkuttok,” Anna said.

At the mention of his name, their translator turned around. “Hey slowpokes, catch up will you?”

Oooh... intrigue! Read the whole story now!
