Tory Richards and His Possession

We have the lovely Tory Richards visiting the blog today to share a little more about herself and her upcoming novella His Possession, due to be released tomorrow. 

Tory Richards is a fun-loving grandma who writes smut. Born in 1955 in the small town of Milo, Maine, she’s lived most of her life in Florida. Today she lives with her daughter and her family. She has her own woman-cave which she shares with four felines whose main goal in life is getting as much cat hair on everything that they can.

Penning stories by hand and then on manual typewriter at the age of thirteen, Tory was a closet writer until the encouragement of her family prompted her into submitting to a publisher. She’s been published since 2005, and has since retired from Disney to focus on family and writing.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

I loved fairytales when I was a young child, especially when there was a princess, prince and happily ever after ending. Cinderella was and is my absolute favorite. Anyway, I was about ten years old when I got the writing bug and I would often jot my stories down on notebook paper in school or at home in my room where my parents thought I was doing homework.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

His Possession is an erotic novella about a biker who’s sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit, by his best friend’s little sister. When proof surfaces showing his innocence and he’s released, he only has one thing on his mind. Find her and make her pay. Their history complicates matters.

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since the age of ten. I’m sixty now. You do the math.

What genre are you most comfortable writing?

Any kind of romance and I mainly focus on erotic romance. However, my stories have humor and suspense in them and I’ve written contemporaries in paranormal, interracial, and biker romance.

Raze is a member of the Wreckers MC, sentenced to life for a crime he didn’t commit, all because of the damning words of his best friend’s little sister. New evidence surfaces, proving him innocent, and once he’s released he’s determined to find the woman responsible. It doesn’t matter that they had history, doesn’t matter that he’s wanted her for the better part of a decade. Rosa’s betrayal has cost him three years of freedom, and he wants retribution.

Once inside the small kitchen I went to the cupboard, where I knew the fucking booze was kept. I grabbed the first bottle of unopened whisky and started to reach for a glass before deciding that I didn’t need it. I needed more than a fucking shot to fuel me for what I wanted to do to Rosa. I couldn’t let her get to me. I wouldn’t. We may never have acted on our feelings for each other, but we both had known they were there.

Well, the time for acknowledgement had fucking lapsed. Her betrayal had sealed her fate, and I was ready to make her pay. I downed about three shots worth, letting the raw burn settle in my gut and fuel my hate. Running the back of my hand across my mouth, I headed for the bedroom where Rosa was locked up, thinking about her pretty face as she’d sat on the stand condemning me, hearing again her tearful words as she’d sworn that I had done the killing, and recalling the silent plea in her eyes as she’d stared at me. I’d understood then that she didn’t believe what she was saying, yet it hadn’t stopped her from lying.

I came to her door, turned the lock, and opened it. Rosa turned from the window she’d been staring out of, tear tracks lining her smooth, olive-toned cheeks. Even in her disheveled state she was fucking beautiful. Her midnight hair was shiny and half tumbling down to her shoulders. I let my gaze wander lazily down her full curves, taking in the slight changes that had occurred since I’d seen her last. She was soft and ripe, and I was going to devour her.

She took a hesitant step toward me. “How many men have you fucked, Rosa?” I asked from the doorway. My question startled her, and she halted abruptly. I could see the confusion shimmering in her eyes. Her brows furrowed. Those sweet, full lips parted as she opened her mouth to answer, but nothing came out.

Sunday 7 with Carole Archer

Does-He-Care-About-You

Hi all! We thought we’d kick off the week with an interview with the lovely Carole Archer. We have 7 questions this Sunday that will hopefully give us a peak into what makes Carole tick and introduce us to her latest book, The Charles Smith Scholarship. Thanks for joining us and sharing Carole!

1) Tell us a little about yourself and your background? 

I am forty-four years old and I live in the North-east of England with my husband, Louis, and our gorgeous Bearded Collie-cross dog, Boo. I work full-time as a typist for the local police force, but my dream is to be a full-time author. It’s an impossibility at the moment, I just never find enough time to write, but hopefully in the future I might make it a reality.

Louis and I have been married for over sixteen years. He discovered my spanking fetish early in our relationship, but although he had a go he really wasn’t into it. As a compromise, he arranged access to the internet for me and helped me to find spanking websites and chat rooms. He took me to spanking parties and gatherings, and allowed me to fulfil my fantasies by playing at such events. He also gave me his blessing to meet spankers on a one-to-one basis. I realize our marriage is slightly unconventional, but it works for us and we’re both truly happy.

For a while I met various spankers, not always with great success! I got myself into a few sticky situations and was ready to give up when, almost ten years ago, I met my current ‘Sir’, after chatting to him for a while online. He is now my spanker, my mentor, but most importantly my friend. In fact, The Charles Smith trilogy is dedicated to him. HIs initials, M.A.S., are highlighted through the titles of the three books – Method, Academy and Scholarship. We only meet approximately once a month, but talk online regularly. He’s a true friend and has helped me in so many areas of my life. The spanking’s great, but I know that one day he’ll be unable to travel to visit me anymore. He’s quite a bit older than me (hopefully saying that will earn me a trip across his lap!) and I know that eventually the spanking will end, but I truly believe I have a friend for life in him. He proof reads everything I write, and he gives my characters many great quotes. I wonder if he realizes that often, when I’m across his knee, I’m constantly taking mental notes of things that my characters can say and do!

2) How long have you been writing? What draws you to this genre?

Let me answer the second part of the question first, then I can lead into how long I have been writing.

I am drawn to this genre by childhood memories of spanking. I went to a mainstream, mixed primary school between 1975 and 1982, when spanking was legal and a fairly common practice in the UK. Spankings with hand, slipper and ruler were regular occurrences, and I remember a feeling of excitement and anticipation when one of my classmates was going to ‘get it’. I always watched when someone was chastised, unable to tear my eyes away, and my heart would race, though at that age there were no sexual feelings. When I was in the final year of primary school, aged 10/11, our teacher was the one feared by all in the school (even some of the teachers). He was a strict disciplinarian and ruled his classroom with an iron hand and a cane. Only the boys were caned, bending over his desk, but girls were spanked on the seat of their clothing, either bending over his desk, bending over in front of the class, or he would keep them back during break time for a private spanking.

I once received a break-time spanking, when I had played up for a supply teacher. I was stood in front of the blackboard when our regular teacher returned, the class were dismissed and I was told to stay where I was. Although I’m certain the spanking comprised of no more than a few painful and embarrassing swats to the seat of my skirt as I struggled across his lap, made more humiliating because the supply teacher was still present, in my mind I have exaggerated this greatly. I have vivid memories of him punishing students, and can picture his cane striking the squirming seat of an unfortunate male, or his hand slap down on a girl’s bottom. I recall oddly feeling ‘cheated’ when I stood beside his desk one day, in front of the class, and he swatted my backside twice. Though I would have been mortified if he had bent me across his desk, I was disappointed for some reason I could not understand.

I used to replay spankings in my head away from school – and sometimes I would daydream during classes. These were nothing sexual, though it was definitely a thrill for me. I also started to write them down in a diary, who had been spanked and how, and I would smile as I re-read them and recalled the incident.

I then moved on to comprehensive school, and in English Language classes I would sometimes base my characters in essays on my primary school teacher. My earliest recollection of writing something ‘kinky’ was at age 14/15 when we were told to write about absolutely anything, so I wrote about that teacher. I don’t recall the actual essay now, and I really wish I still had it, but I believe it was based around my OTK spanking from him. I don’t think I gave any lead-up as to why I was being spanked, just that this male took me across his lap, pulled my skirt up (which he did not do in reality) and spanked me soundly over my panties as the other male watched. He then caned me while I was still held across his lap (which again did not really happen). Needless to say my teacher did not ask me to read that essay out for the rest of the class; instead she kept me back after the lesson to ask if I was being abused at home. Of course I wasn’t, but she seemed unconvinced it was simply a recollection of a spanking at my previous school.

I was sent to the headmistress, a bad-tempered, evil, cane-wielding nun, to explain myself. Her way of dealing with this – and most other things, it seemed – was to slap me around the head and scream at me. I was told that I would burn in hell if I continued to write such vulgar filth, and then she sent me outside with an empty box – the standard punishment for a misbehaving student. You were not allowed to return until it was filled with rubbish, though most of us simply walked around the grassed areas, put a few pieces of rubbish in while she watched, then went to the waste bin and filled it up, hung around out of sight for a while, then returned to her. I recall I had my hands caned on that occasion, which was not a pleasant experience. Apparently that was supposed to deter me from writing such things. I have news for you, Sister – it didn’t work!!!

Needless to say, after this experience, I kept my writing hidden away. I recall at this time my bedroom carpet was purple tiled squares, perfect for secreting my short stories under. I would take them out and read them from time to time, but through fear of discovery I would tear them into tiny pieces and throw them away.

When I was a bit older, late teens, I would still write, but then I kept my snippets of stories in a folder. They were always based around that spanking from my teacher, though the setting changed. It now was sexual and I found this very difficult to understand. There was no internet then, and I couldn’t talk to family or friends about it, so I hid my dirty little secret away, while continuing to fantasise and write about it. I did have boyfriends who would spank me, but just to heighten lovemaking, certainly not to the extent I wanted. Although I shared a bit of my writing with one of them, I was generally too embarrassed about it.

When my husband introduced me to the internet, just before we were married, I found to my great relief I wasn’t abnormal, nor was my writing. I would post short stories on websites, and I received great feedback. It took many years before I was brave enough to get myself published, and for a couple of years I was content with writing a few short stories to go in spanking anthologies for a British publisher. I was thrilled when my stories were accepted, and I started to look at other ideas I’d had.

I then decided to write The Charles Smith Method properly. I had several scenes written, but it wasn’t a story at this point. I sent it to my British publisher in late 2011 and they started to work on it with me, editing the first two chapters and changing the title. They then told me it would be a couple of years before they could publish as they had a backlog of books, and maybe I might like to try somewhere else. I did a search for spanking publishers and the top of the list was Blushing Books. I told myself I would try them, if they refused that was it, I would give up. I sent my story and two days later I got an acceptance. Eventually I had The Charles Smith Method published in June 2012.

I can’t believe that in April 2015 my writing’s still going well and I’ve just had my thirteenth book published. I already had The Charles Smith Scholarship part written when I was asked if I would like to complete the trilogy. I always wanted to do this so I could dedicate it to my ‘Sir’, but I felt too much time had lapsed since those two books. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to do this by Blushing Books.

3) Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your works?

A lot of my inspiration these days comes from TV, or people I see. I might see characteristics in someone that I think I could use, or I see a place or setting on the TV and think I’d like to base something around that, so I research the topic to see if it’s do-able.

I’ve always had a real fascination with the Titanic, and after watching one of the numerous films about it, and seeing all the ladies and gentlemen in the fine clothes, I came up with the idea for The Delinquent Bride. Shelley came from a privileged home, and I could picture her boarding the Titanic after fleeing her pre-arranged marriage, later starting a new life in America.

4) Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

My favourite character from The Charles Smith Scholarship is Hazel, and she has been throughout the three books. She has been Charles’ housekeeper for many years, but she did not have a good life prior to meeting him. He was a father figure to her, and she absolutely adored him, though I think he might have secretly hoped a romance would develop between them. She is openly bisexual, and likes to indulge in sex with more than one person at a time. She has so much love to give (both sexually and emotionally), and I find her such a warm and likeable character. She seems so confident, but there’s occasional flashes of neediness and vulnerability that, for me, add to her charm. I have sketched out plans for a stand-alone book for Hazel – Hazel’s Honeymoon – which would include hints of medical play (quickly becoming one of my favourite genres since I wrote Melissa’s Medical Examination), and age play (another thing I briefly dabbled with, and enjoyed, in Naughty Immy’s Punishment). I really hope I get the opportunity to write this as I would love to devote a whole book to Hazel, with not quite so many supporting characters, and without the main schooling background of ‘The Charles Smith Academy’.

I also loved the little girl in The Delinquent Bride, Jessica. She was so adorable and I felt she added the ‘cute factor’ to scenes where she was involved. She also added a touch of fun to a not so nice topic (the sinking of the Titanic). After they had been rescued, she quickly bounced back and the others around her found it impossible to sit around feeling sorry for themselves when she wanted to play.

5) How about your least favorite character That you’ve written ?  What makes them less appealing to you?

Some of my female characters now seem a bit whiny and bratty, but definitely my least favourite has to be the vile Percy in The Lady and the Sheriff. I tried to make him – and his mother – as obnoxious as I possibly could, and I took great delight in meting out justice to him later on. Although he was my least favourite character, the parts of that book I most liked writing were when he was involved, as I enjoyed writing something not quite so nice. He was a truly nasty person, only out for himself and what he could get. He didn’t care about anyone or anything, and his mother was equally as bad – showing where he got the bad traits from.

6) Can you share a favorite quote or picture that inspired you for your latest book and why it inspired you?

Not so much a quote, but I’ve read many things about the ‘short sharp shock’ relating to borstals at that time, and also ‘learning the hard way’. The Charles Smith Academy isn’t a borstal, it is nowhere near as harsh as those institutions, but it did give students one final chance before finding them in such places – or possibly even prison. Stories come out regularly these days about how students were mistreated in borstals, being beaten and abused by those who were supposed to be reforming them. The Charles Smith Academy is a kinder alternative, though I don’t imagine the spanked students would share that view. However, given an insight into borstal, I’m sure they would opt for the Academy’s firm but fair discipline regime.

7) Tell us about your latest release. What can we expect from you in the future?

The Charles Smith Scholarship picks up five years after The Charles Smith Academy. Whereas The Charles Smith Academy concludes The Charles Smith Method, tying up some loose ends in the first novel, The Charles Smith Scholarship can be read as a stand-alone book. The characters do follow on from the previous books, but there is enough background given to simply read this book only. However, if readers enjoy my writing and can afford all three, I would be tremendously grateful if they purchased them all!

The Academy has built up over the years, taking in eighteen to nineteen year olds who have committed crimes and been given one final chance – the alternative is a custodial sentence. The youngsters are schooled at the Academy, with the aim of getting them into gainful employment/accommodation/further education at the end of it.

The Charles Smith Scholarship is based in the late 1970s, when corporal punishment was still legal in the UK, and Judge Walker delivers the new batch of students to the Academy. Jamie, Belinda, Aaron, Roberta, Abigail and Eve are partnered up with Jenny, Hazel, Mrs Hutchinson, Harry, Mr Hutchinson and Mr Bainbridge. The six students are competing with each other for a chance to win a scholarship to Florida the following year. It is the first time the Academy has taken in male pupils, and Mr Bainbridge has his doubts. Jenny and Hazel, although part of the teaching staff, still act like students themselves at times and also find themselves receiving discipline from gardener Harry and headmaster Mr Hutchinson (the headmaster is based entirely on my primary school teacher). There are problems along the way, dealt with effectively by the committed teaching staff, and highly sexed Hazel adds a bit of spice to the book.

This book does conclude The Charles Smith trilogy, but as I’ve already mentioned, I believe there’s scope for a book about Hazel and I hope to write it some time in the future. At present I’m working on a sequel to Melissa’s Punishment Education. I have tentatively titled this Melissa and the Medic, but this is a temporary title until I can come up with something more suitable. I introduced a character, Jason, to help Dr Williams and his wife, Barbara, punish Melissa. I left it open for him to become a part of Melissa’s life, and I decided it was time to write that sequel, especially as I enjoyed my first go at a medical play story. I haven’t quite written four chapters yet, but I hope to get going with it again soon.

This is a small snippet from early in the book, when the students are individually introduced to their mentors. Eve meets Mr Bainbridge and finds things are not going to be as easy as she imagined:-

Meanwhile, down in the basement, Mr. Bainbridge perched on the edge of his desk. He waited patiently as Eve walked around the six small desks, toyed with the ink well on one, flipped up the lid and looked inside. Picking out a fountain pen, she held it up. “These are a bit old-fashioned,” she stated, screwing up her nose.

“Mr. Hutchinson prefers that students don’t use disposable biros,” Mr. Bainbridge explained. “I must admit I have a preference for a fountain pen too. Writing looks so much neater.”

Eve then moved to a large bookcase and leafed through several textbooks, before returning to sit down in front of her tutor.

“I teach English and maths,” Mr. Bainbridge said, by way of introduction. “Tell me a little bit about yourself.”

Eve crossed her arms over her chest and fixed her gaze on him. “My parents expect me to get a job,” she said, frowning. “Daddy’s loaded, but he was very mean and stopped my allowance. He refused to buy me any make-up, which I desperately needed,” she added, pouting and tipping her head back, removing her glasses and fluttering her thick black lashes. “So I had to go to the shops and get some.”

“You stole it?” Mr. Bainbridge asked, crossing his legs at the ankles and gazing at her. Eve nodded, showing no shame. “He gave me no choice, did he?” she reasoned.

Sighing, Mr. Bainbridge shook his head. “Stealing is wrong. Surely you know that.”

Rolling her eyes, Eve shrugged her shoulders. “I can’t believe they’ve sent me here. It won’t be long before Daddy comes to take me home. He’s just trying to frighten me.”

“I’m afraid you’re wrong,” Mr. Bainbridge replied. “If you don’t remain here, you’ll go to court to face shoplifting charges, and may well go to jail. This is your only other option. Your father will not be taking you home.”

“No,” Eve whined, shaking her head. Her eyes wide and cheeks pale, she raised her hands and covered her face, her confident attitude quashed with only a few words.

“Eve,” Mr. Bainbridge said, getting down from his desk and touching a hand to her arm. “I understand you like English literature. I’m a huge fan, too.”

Eve lowered her hands and nodded. “I love poetry,” she admitted.

“That’s great, I believe strongly in the carrot and stick approach,” he said with a smile, walking around his desk and taking his paddle from the drawer. Eve frowned in confusion.

“This is the stick,” he said, holding the paddle in front of her. “The carrot can be any reward you wish, perhaps tickets to a poetry recital?”

Eve nodded with enthusiasm, her smile reappearing. “Okay, this is how it’ll work,” he told her. “You do well in your studies between now and Christmas, I’ll take you to a poetry recital. If you don’t knuckle down, I’ll bend you across my desk and smack your bottom,” he warned, holding the paddle out.

“Daddy spanked me once,” she said with a sigh. “It didn’t hurt. He tried to blackmail me too, but I always get what I want, one way or another.”

Mr. Bainbridge shook his head and gripped Eve’s wrist. Pulling her to her feet, he turned her to face his desk. “Let me tell you, young lady, I am not blackmailing you. I am offering you an incentive to do well. If you don’t behave, all you will get is a sore bottom,” he said, pushing her over the table.

“Your father didn’t spank you properly if it didn’t hurt,” he added, cracking his paddle against her behind. Eve screeched and tried to get up, as the paddle landed once more. Mr. Bainbridge pressed firmly against her back, flipped up her skirt and landed another two firm smacks over her panties. Eve howled in pain.

“I won’t take your panties down today,” he said, resting the paddle against her squirming backside, “but any future spankings will be on your bare bottom,” he warned, smacking the paddle twice against her unprotected thighs.

Mr. Bainbridge stepped back and watched Eve jump to her feet, her hands rubbing her stinging flesh, tears rolling down her cheeks as she whimpered.

“So, young lady, I guess that did hurt?”

Eve nodded miserably, stamping her feet as she tried to rub the burn away.

“Come on, let’s go to your room,” he said, taking the distressed young woman’s elbow, guiding her from the classroom and up the stairs. She lowered her gaze when Judge Walker wandered into the hallway, and was relieved when he said nothing, stepping aside to allow Mr. Bainbridge to lead her up the main staircase.

“Sir, I would really love to go to a poetry recital with you,” Eve said with a sniffle, stopping as they reached the top of the stairs. She gazed into his eyes and was pleased to see a smile form on his lips.

“Well, as long as you behave yourself,” he promised.

The door was open when they reached her room and he ushered her inside. Belinda lay on the top bunk, facing them.

“You might like to think about the behaviour that led to your spanking,” he suggested. Eve’s cheeks reddened and she turned away from Belinda. “Yes, sir,” she whispered, crawling onto the lower bunk and cupping her tender buttocks. “I’m sorry,” she added, blinking back tears.

Mr. Bainbridge patted her shoulder and smiled. “Be a good girl and it won’t be necessary again,” he said, closing the door on his way out.

“Oh, my God,” Belinda shrieked, clambering down from her bunk. “Did Mr. Bainbridge really spank you?”

Eve nodded, pouting. “Yes, and if you’ve got any sense, you won’t make him angry.”

Mojo Mondays with Loki Renard!

This week for Mojo Monday I am excited to introduce Loki Renard. Now I know many of you have read her books. Her Military Discipline series is hot! I believe  it was the first book I ever read of Loki’s and once I finished that one, I was all over Blushing Books and Amazon downloading like a crack addict. I was hooked!

detail_2206_Savages_Recruit_Detail

 

Her writing is so diverse. She writes about soldiers and brats, and cowboys and spies. Even vampires and elves! One of my favorite books is Obeying Rigel. Now I stumbled upon this book because I did not realize at the time that it is lesbian DD. But don’t let that deter you if you don’t usually buy lesbian DD, you will love it. The characters are interesting and bratty and tough and fun. The writing is very well done with nicely developed plots and full wonderful characters you just want to get to know better.  And lucky for us, her final book in the Rigel series was just released. Leaving Rigel.

 

rigel3

 

Hearts and bottoms are on the line!

In the aftermath of the charismatic albeit unabashedly promiscuous Rigel’s disastrous attempt at a proposal, both Rigel and her ex-girlfriend Sadie are left emotionally devastated and acting out in their own ways.

Meanwhile, gentle dyke Tank seems to be getting called off the romance bench by Sadie’s best friend, Kate, who is far too young for her – and far too straight, for that matter.

Is Kate really interested in Tank romantically? And what about Rigel, who wastes no time declaring her own undying attraction for Tank too?

Whilst Tank tries to navigate her way through that romantic minefield, she has Sadie to worry about. Bright, witty, no-limits Sadie, who seems to have slammed the lever down on her own self destruct mechanism, and who is going to need correcting in no uncertain terms.

           ******************************************************************************************

Now a little chat with Loki! Thank you Loki for joining us today.

 

Bree: What inspired you to write your first book?

 

Loki: It just sort of happened. Turns out if you just keep writing long enough, books tend to emerge. 

 

Bree: Thats very true. I keep encouraging Nikki to try her hand at writing. How long have you been writing?

 

Loki: Since they gave me a crayon and started blathering on about the importance of being able to form letters correctly. Turns out all you need to do is mash a keyboard. Ha! 

 

Bree: LOL! How do you come up with your titles? I sometimes find this challenging. You want them to be catchy but have meaning that is obvious to the reader.

 

Loki: Titles are hard. In fact, my next book might just be called that: “Titles Are Hard.”

 

Bree: Is there a particular author you really love or that have influenced your writing style?

 

Loki: There are lots of authors that I love. Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, and Joseph Heller are three that come immediately to mind. I don’t think I really have a writing ‘style’ at the moment. I tend to write a lot of very different sorts of books in a lot of different ways, using very different ‘voices’ at times. I am easily bored. 

 

Bree: Is writing your primary career or do you have a “day job?”

 

Loki: Writing is my primary career. I’ve been a full time self employed writer for years now. However, I don’t only write fiction. It’s important to have a varied repertoire, both to avoid boredom and to hedge against the impact of the bottom falling out of a particular market. Unless you’re an A-List author, having all your eggs in one basket isn’t a good idea. 

Bree:  I am jealous! I am still working part time at my “day job” and look forward to the day when I can write full time.

 

Bree: What are you working on right now?

 

Loki: Well I am about to start the third Military Discipline book for Blushing Books, I’m finishing a series about a pop star and her stern bodyguard for Bethany’s Woodshed. I also have my ongoing free fantasy series, Lesbia. (More on that later 😉

 

Bree: What is the most difficult or challenging thing in your writing?

 

Loki: This question took me the longest to answer. I think for me the most challenging thing in my personal writing life is coming to terms with genre. I like romance as much as anything, but it’s occasionally more stifling than that scene in Kill Bill where Uma Thurman is buried alive in that wooden coffin and then she has to one inch punch her way out of it. The solution to that issue was simple: write other things too. 

 

 

Bree: Do you have any advice for new writers?

 

Loki: Well, like every other writer, I’d say the best thing to do is to write. If you keep doing it long enough, you’ll find that you grow in sophistication. A lot of people worry about not being good at writing – and a lot of people worry about what other people might say about their writing. And whilst it’s true that there’s no shortage of people who will say whatever silly critical thing comes into their heads, the worst thing you can do is write for critics. 

 

Write for the people who love your work. Write for whatever burns inside you. And remember, if people don’t like what you write, it’s usually because it wasn’t for them in the first place. Or because you called all your characters ‘Bob’ – that’s such a common newbie mistake.

 

Oh, and you will suck. Everybody sucks at first. That’s the idea. Don’t let it get in the way of your aspirations. If you get rejected, keep going. Like most authors, I was rejected a whole lot before anyone agreed to publish me. What kept me going was the love of the stories I had in my head. I also fell in love with the process of writing. Nowadays I don’t feel ‘right’ if I haven’t written. 

 

If you experience writer’s block, you’re doing it wrong. (In my opinion.) I’ve never felt I suffered from writer’s block because to me that feeling of having nothing to write or not knowing how to get it down just means that the story isn’t ready yet. It will come in time. Stories have their own momentum, their own desire to be born, if you will. You’ve got to give your book its due gestational period. If it turns out that you lose interest in a story, allow yourself to lose interest in it. Being a writer doesn’t mean chaining yourself to a computer and flagellating yourself for a lack of creativity – although who knows, that might be a good way to get the juices flowing. 

 

Bree: Well said Loki, and I completely agree. Criticism is difficult even I imagine for the most seasoned writers, but especially so for the new author. But don’t give up.

Bree: When you are writing a book, do you start with an outline first or do you just start writing and see where it leads you?

 

Loki: Well, when you write romance, the end is sort of a foregone conclusion. People get twitchy if the hero and heroine don’t end up together, so I tend to just start somewhere interesting and have intriguing things happen along the way. If I’m writing some of my books that aren’t strictly romantic (like the Rigel series, where I toss all the romance rules out the window, where relationships can and do fail,) well, I don’t plan those either. In my experience, once a story gets going it tends to wrench itself out of your hands if you hold on too tightly anyway, so I prefer a freer flowing form of creation.

 

Bree: Some of your stories are lesbian themed. Are these written from personal experience? I ask this because I have never had a f/f experience but really loved your f/f stories.

 

(Prepare yourself for a really long answer to a question you didn’t really ask 😉

 

Loki: There are several reasons I like to write F/F stories:

 

I like to write F/F stories because I am a woman, and I feel as if I understand a feminine perspective better than a male one. Though I am fond of many of my male leads, I feel as if I write better female characters. 

 

Frankly I think a lot of male characters end up being fairly one dimensional cyphers for protective masculinity instead of actual, you know, characters with hopes and fears and flaws. Sometimes it seems as if the only flaws allowed for male romance characters are being too rich, too charming and perhaps too arrogant. Or too tall. Or too really, really incredibly good looking. 


I enjoy writing about dominant / submissive interactions between women, because it is fun to put women in the driver’s seat, to explore different types of feminine strength and occasionally dominance. There’s also a very different dynamic between two women and a woman and a man. 

 

I feel as if I can be more ‘myself’ as it were with F/F stories, because I’m not tied to the restrictions of genre (or other heteronormative conventions.) I don’t write F/F fiction as a commercial concern, so if what I write makes people hate my face, or is completely ignored, that’s okay. 

 

And lastly, but certainly not least – the F/F audience is a small, but very passionate one. I get a great deal of feedback from them, which I love. Writing is, at its core, communication. In traditional writing models you get a sort of one way stream, in which the author puts the book out into the world and that’s sort of it. With newer ways of writing, like web series, you have much more interaction. 

 

With my Lesbia series, I get the pleasure of seeing people reacting to the series as it unfolds. I’ve been writing it since September 2011, so almost two years soon-ish. And in that time I’ve had the scope and support to see the story really transcend almost anything else I’ve written in terms of character depth and development. It’s an epic, in the old sense of the word, and I love it.

 

Nikki: Wow, it seems all of your reasons for writing f/f, are the very reasons I enjoy reading them. Awesome!

Bree and I want to thank Loki for spending time with us and answering all of our pressing questions. Here are a few more links to Lokis blogs. If you haven’t tried any of her books, give her a try. You will thank me later!

Mojo Monday with Sierra Cartwright and her thoughts on Nipple Play…

I am over the top excited to welcome Sierra Cartwright to the  blog today. If you are not familiar with her books, you are in for a real treat. She has written over 20 books and is still going strong. Currently, she is working on the  Mastered series and just released the third book in the series titled Over The Line. I read the first book in the series With This Collar and was completely hooked.

Each book in the ‘Mastered’ series has a new male and female couple, but there are mentions of prior main characters from the other books. So you never know when you may get a glimpse into what your old favorite characters are doing. Yes, I admit, every book I fall in love all over again with her super hot Doms and wish I was his smart, adorable, funny, sassy, sub. lol

This week the third in her Mastered series was released. It is called Over The Line. In this installment, we meet Master Michael & Sydney.

But more about that later. First, I am sure you are all dying to read what Sierra has to say about nipple play. So Welcome Sierra!

Hi! Sierra here. If I’m being honest here, my favorite kink is nipple play. I have an amazing amount of clamps, bras, corsets….you name it! I love writing about them too, as a way to introduce others to the joys (and pains) of nipple play.

I think one of my absolute favorite scenes to write was this one:

 

She looked up at him through her eyelashes, one of the most seductive things he’d ever seen. She cradled his balls and ran her thumb over the slit in his cock to transfer the first drop of pre-ejaculate onto her skin then into her mouth. She made a show of sucking her thumb.

He captured the chain that ran between her nipples. “Lets make this more interesting,” he said. He pulled her up onto her knees and looped the metal over his hard cock. It would prevent her from pulling too far away.

“Ah…Diabolical, Sir,” she said.

“Don’t touch yourself,” he warned.

Which was in book two of the Mastered Series On His Terms. Just fantasizing about that whole thing? Please a Dom in two ways, but while also getting stimulation from it? *Swoon*
Of course I do go over the small details, like when Master Marcus teaches Julia a thing or two about them, in book one, With This Collar: “We’ll start with a tweezer style. They’re not my favourite because they come off too easily. But they’ll be a good introduction for you.” He opened a drawer then took out a pair. He draped the chain over his index finger. She stared at them.
“I thought you said this was meant to turn me on.”
“Go with it.” He cupped her left breast then sucked her nipple into his mouth, laving the bud, making it hard.”

 

Now if you are a nipple play virgin-like Nikki (her words not mine), here is some info on different types of nipple clamps.

 

  In order for experience level… 1 to start out 4 for more experienced.
1. They can slip off with a lot of pulling and if they get wet, but if put on while the nipple is hard, which is a key for properly putting any of them on, it shouldn’t be too big of an issue, although, yanking at them isn’t recommended until you’re comfortable with them. In order to feel comfortable with them, try using them alone for the first time. Pinch your nipples and play with them until they’re hard, then at the base of your nipple between it and the areola, place the rubber tip. Slide the circle up toward your nipple until you feel uncomfortable. Try wearing that around the house for awhile (please, don’t hurt yourself, don’t try to use more pain just to become used to it, take it slow!) say 5 minutes. Gently take them off and rub circulation back into them, massaging up from the areola to your nipples.clamp1
I recommend arnica for helping with any residual pain, it’s all natural and will help increase blood flow back to the area and help prevent bruising/pain afterward. Repeat the process until you’re comfortable with them, knowing that YOU know your body better than anyone else.
***Nikki here-I *hear* arnica is also good for sore bottoms. Just sayin…***
arnica
2. These are essentially the same but screw down, choose whichever you feel most comfortable with, I find #1 to be less intimidating.
clamp2
3. After you’ve adjusted to the first set, go ahead and try adding some weight to them, by way of attaching weight or buying weighted ones. You might want to try gently pulling on the chain of the others before jumping to these, then applying more pressure as you can handle. STOP WHENEVER YOU FEEL THE NEED. If the pain is too much, back it off a little bit, don’t tighten them so much, or wear them so long. They can be a GREAT asset to stimulation, where even the sheets brushing against your bare nipples sends you over the edge, or they can become a painful distraction, be aware of where you feel your line between pleasure and pain is.
clamp3
***Nikki again, holy crap batman! These babies vibrate! Holy hell!***
4. These, are clover clamps. If you haven’t used clamps before, you probably don’t want to jump into these, if if you’re totally into nipple play. Clover clamps are designed to clamp down on the nipple harder when the chain is being pulled on (think, tug of war… with your nipple). The pain can be incredible – that’s almost the point of these. They can also be a ton of fun, in the right setting (slight punishment, anyone?). Work your way up to using these, please!
clamp4
Nikki again. I am curious, how many of you are into nipple play? Or are you all a bunch of nipple virgins like me? lol Come on, I wanna hear what you think about it because honestly, when i read these book and they talk about how much it hurts. Going on and worse, coming off. It scares the crap out of me. lol
Now that we have all been skool’d in nipple play and the various types of clamps out there….(If you google nipple clamps images don’t be shocked by what you see. lol) Lets go back to Sierra latest book. You can read the first chapter for free if you go to her blog. If you click on the post card below you can go to Total E Bounds site where you can purchase the book. Or, you can go to Amazon, B&N, and All Romance

Mojo Mondays With James Johnson of Stormy Night Publishing

 woman-typing

 

After what seems to be a very, very, long break…Mojo Mondays are back! We had a fabulous family vacation. Bree and SJ spoiled me like crazy. I am so lucky to have them in my life. Anyway, more about all that to come. For now, I would like to welcome Brees publisher James Johnson-husband to the famous Korey Mae Johnson, and publishing guru with Stormy Night Publications. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy. He has some great advice/insight to offer if you have an interest in writing. So everyone, please welcome James.

 

When I was offered the opportunity to write an article for Breanna’s blog, I spent some time thinking about what I could write which would incorporate my knowledge of the spanking romance and erotica market today, while at the same time possibly be of interest to readers.  Rather than turn this post into a press release for Stormy Night Publications, I decided instead to look to the future and lay out my thoughts on some potential new areas for spanking fiction writers to explore.

 

As of today, Stormy Night Publications is not involved in any of the three areas I mention below, but I’m very curious whether any of them would be of interest to authors (and even more importantly, to consumers) of spanking erotica.

 

 

 

Photo-Stories

 

Photo-stories are by no means new, and in fact they predate spanking movies, spanking eBooks, and the internet itself.  The old (primarily British) spanking magazines, such as Janus (and its sister publication Februs), Scorpion, Roue, Blushes, etc. were based almost entirely around photo-stories.

 

Before I go further, though, let me clarify what I mean by a “photo-story”.  I define a photo-story as a series of photographs which are specifically taken so that they illustrate the progression of a spanking scene (or series of spanking scenes), along with an accompanying text based story.  Either the photoset or the text of the story could in theory stand alone, but together they form a work of art which, if done properly, is often far better than either component on its own.

 

Unfortunately, today the photo-story has all but disappeared.  There are stories, and there are photosets, but to see a true photo-story these days is all too rare.  I can imagine three primary reasons for this change, although there may be others.  First, the advent of digital cameras has made it trivially easy to take essentially unlimited numbers of photos during a shoot.  This is in principle good, but as a side effect it has led to less effort being placed on obtaining just the right poses for a truly exquisite spanking photo.  Second, the availability of inexpensive video equipment means that almost every spanking related shoot is a video shoot.  The thought process is essentially, “Why shoot photos, when we could shoot videos?”  As a result, photos are often either taken from video grabs or taken as an afterthought once the video has been shot, usually leading to lower quality photos.  Third, and perhaps most importantly, the companies that produce spanking photos and movies are, with a few exceptions, separate from the companies which publish spanking stories and books, and therefore it is much more difficult to arrange the production of a really good spanking photo-story.

 

In spite of all of the above, I do think that excellent spanking photo-stories could emerge again as a viable source of revenue (for publishers, authors, models, photographers, and everyone else in the business) and of entertainment for customers, if the right people worked together.

 

 

 

Illustrated Stories

 

Illustrated stories were another feature of the spanking magazines of old, and like photo-stories they have all but disappeared.  As with photo-stories, I believe the most important reason for this near disappearance is that without the magazine companies to corral the necessary people, there is no driving force to bring skilled authors together with skilled artists in order to create illustrated stories.  With the phenomenal growth of eBooks, however, and the ability of most modern eBook readers to handle color images, I believe there could be a bright future ahead for a return to illustrated stories at some point.

 

 

 

Scripts/Screenplays

If you are a lover of spanking videos now is a good time to be alive and on the internet.  For what it once cost to buy a single VHS movie, it is now possible to buy memberships to sites with literally hundreds of hours of spanking content.  Some of this content, in my opinion, is quite good.  The video and sound qualities are excellent, the models are attractive, and the spankings are hard enough to be believable.

 

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find longer movies with even moderately developed plots, and as a result I believe that in some ways the entire video market is at risk of stagnating.  At some point, I’ve seen a naughty college girl get spanked on her bare bottom for getting bad grades enough times that I get bored by it…  That is actually a lie, I still enjoy watching a naughty college girl get spanked on her bare bottom for bad grades, especially if it is good and hard and she has a cute bottom.  Others, though, might get bored of it, or might never be interested at all without more story than that.

 

There is a reason that Hollywood pays good money to screenwriters, and I think the time has come for video producers to get together with publishers in an effort to start creating videos whose stories match the rest of their production values.

Mojo Mondays with Kenny Walters

bendovergirl_detail

 

We are very pleased to bring to you today, an interview with Kenny Walters. He is a published author-his most recent work- Bed Over, Girl.

This book contains six short stories from a writer who many will know from magazines and spanking websites. Typically realistic and often based on real-life events, they depict punishments in British girls’ schools with one having a modern Australian setting.

Fair’s Fair
Two girls are punished by the headmaster for bringing alcohol into the school, but that’s just the start of it.

The Twist
Two girls feel hard done by when a particular prefect reports them to their headmaster. When the same prefect is responsible for their second visit to the headmaster’s study, it sets them thinking.

What I Really Want
Misbehavior in class leads to an unexpected request, although the teacher isn’t sure whether he really wants to go along with the idea.

Sixth Form Smoking
Two girls are caught smoking, but their punishment is not entirely conventional.

The New School Secretary
Stella is very pleased to have secured a new job working as an assistant school secretary in a girls’ boarding school. The girls like her too, but then one takes advantage of Stella’s friendliness.

The Escort
Persistent failings result in Karen Donaldson having to attend a disciplinary meeting with her teacher, who decides she has insufficient powers to deal adequately with the girl. Thus Karen finds herself being escorted to an even less pleasant meeting with the Sixth Form Principal.

****************************************************************************************************

So lots of hot stories about school discipline to satisfy just about anyone! Enjoy this fascinating interview from an insider, and please check out his book on Amazon. You wont be disappointed! He has personal experience so he knows what he is writing about. 🙂 You can also check out his website, Over The Desk.

Bre: How long have you been writing? 

Kenny: I started writing spanking literature in the form of short stories about twenty years ago, firstly for fun and to share amongst a few friends with a similar interest. I had previously written articles on craftwork and woodworking for several magazines. With the coming of the internet, a couple of friends and I set up our own website and I contributed with short stories and photographs.

 

Bree:How did you get into writing this genre?

Kenny: I’ve always had an interest in spanking and corporal punishment, and can even remember playing spanking games with friends before any of us were even old enough to start school. My first job after leaving school was situated near the Soho area of London, which in those days was the porn capital of the UK. Looking around the shops in Soho, there was literally thousands and thousands of magazines, books and movies for sale, although it was some years later that I actually started writing.

While the ban on school CP in the UK some years ago doesn’t seem to have affected the demand for CP fiction, some have turned their interest to US and Australian school scenarios because these are still current.

 

Bree: Is Bend Over, girls your first book published?

Kenny: Yes, although Carla and I have also published another book (called ‘Over the Desk’) via Blushing Books Publishing. We both have second books with our publishers.

 

Bree: Did you grow up in British schools? Any first hand experiences?

Kenny: Yes, I did. In my mixed primary school (ages 5 to 11) corporal punishment was rarely used with spankings over the teachers knee being the most common form. The headmaster occasionally used the cane, but that was very rare.

I then went to an all boys Grammar School (ages 11 to 18) where corporal punishment was an everyday thing. Most teachers punished by whacking boys’ bottoms with a plimsoll, a type of rubber soled gym shoe that was always referred to as a slipper when used for punishment. I doubt a day went by when at least one boy in each class of 40 to 45 didn’t get the slipper and this was always done in front of the whole class.

The headmaster and two deputy heads used the cane, but always in private so I only got to witness one boy, a friend of mine, being caned. Canings were reckoned to be fairly rare, and I got to see this one caning because of the headmaster’s peculiar idea that when a group of boys had all misbehaved seriously, he would take everyone involved into his study but select just one boy to actually receive the cane. The others then had to witness it. From general opinion in the school, my friend got a fairly typical six strokes administered across his bottom with trousers and underpants pulled down.

The all girls Grammar school nearby used corporal punishment much less but seemed to follow similar lines as did most other schools in the area.

Later, I taught in a number of private schools and corporal punishment was generally used quite liberally so I got to hear about, witness and administer a good number of punishments and many of my short stories are based on these experiences.

 

Bree: If you wrote more than one book, which is your favorite?

Kenny: I don’t really have a favourite short story.

 

Bree: What are you working on right now?

Kenny: I’m working on a collection of brand new short stories and also a humorous book on life in a UK Grammar school in the 1960s and 1970s.

 

Bree:When did caning start in english schools?

Kenny: Corporal punishment had always been used in English schools, although for many centuries the favoured implement was the birch (a small bunch of twigs, not always from birch trees, up to three feet long bound together with cord). The cane began to be used as Britain became a coloniser of places where it was grown, and was certainly the more popular implement by the mid to late 1800s.

 

Bree: Why was the cane decided to be the most efficient implement?

Kenny: I don’t really know, but if the bark was left on twigs such as from the birch tree there would be a number of sharp projections along the length of the twigs that could cause nasty little cuts. The cane (rattan) doesn’t have these and would therefore avoid any risk of these cuts on tender schoolboys’ or girls’ bottoms.

 

Bree: When was the introduction to the tawse?

Kenny: The tawse (a length of leather strap with the end split into two or three tails) was much more popular inScotland and the very north of England rather than the whole UK, although leather belts (known as the strap) were much more widespread throughout the UK. As far as I know, it came into being around the same time as the cane took over from the birch in schools.

 

 Bree: Is slippering ever a part of english scholl discipline?

 Kenny: Before the ban on all corporal punishment, the slipper (plimsoll or gym shoe) was the most popular implement used by teachers on a daily basis. In almost all areas, all corporal punishment was supposed to be recorded in the school punishment book. However, while nearly all canings were recorded, slipperings almost never were.

 

 Bree: Is school discipline ever done on bb?

 Kenny: When corporal punishment was allowed, most punishments were administered across the hand or across the bottom covered by normal indoor clothing. Some head teachers, like ours, always caned on the bare bottom, while others made boys strip to their underwear and others allowed boys to keep their trousers on. Most girls were caned on their hands, but those who were caned on their bottoms could well have their skirts lifted. Bare bottom canings (and slipperings) for girls did happen but they’re much rarer.

 Gym teachers (male and female) seemed often to have a reputation for using CP anyway, and certainly gym teachers finding some boys or girls mucking around in the shower probably didn’t see the point of waiting while these errant youngsters dried themselves off and got dressed before slippering them, thus they could expect to get it not only on the bare but actually stark naked.

 

Bree: Where did the term 12 of the best come?

Kenny: Mainly from CP fiction, I think! The traditional punishment was ‘six of the best’. There were a few schools which allowed up to twelve strokes but they were pretty rare. Eight strokes would be a more usual maximum.

 

 Bree: What is the origin of the school master robes?

 Kenny: They’re the robes university students have to purchase and wear at their graduation ceremony. They would also have to buy and wear ‘mortar board’ hats for the ceremony but if they followed a teaching career they would have worn the robes during lessons but never the hat, nor indeed the attached hood which denotes the university colours.

 

 Bree: Are male school masters allowed to cane female students?

 Kenny: Some Local Education Authorities did have guidelines that said male teachers shouldn’t punish female students and when these guidelines weren’t followed ‘words of advice’ were sometimes offered. There was no legal ban though. In my experience, female students often preferred to be punished by male teachers, because they thought we would be kinder to their bottoms. I suspect they were quite correct.

 

 Bree: How old can a student be before caning or punishment is no longer permitted?

 Kenny: No corporal punishment is allowed in UK schools now. Curiously, though, some sixth form colleges have started to introduce statements on their websites stating specifically that corporal punishment is not used in that college. Since these have come long after the ban was imposed, speculation as to the reasoning is rife.

 

 Bree: Why do the english favor the cane over say a paddle as used in american schools?

Kenny: I think it’s purely historical. Some teachers did use a paddle type implement. One teacher I had used what he called a ‘key board’ which was a flat piece of wood very similar in shape to a US paddle but had (allegedly) been used to hang up keys in his house. Another headmaster of a girls school used a US shaped paddle made of Perspex (Lucite in US?).

 

 Bree: has caning ever been banned in english schools?

 Kenny: All corporal punishment is now banned in UK schools.

 

Bree: what is your interest in this subject..where does it come from?

 Kenny: As I said earlier, my interest stems from a very young age and it’s almost as though it’s a natural instinct.

 

 Bree: Were you ever disciplined in an english school?

 Kenny: I was spanked a couple of times and slippered three times, all in my secondary (Grammar) school.

 

 Bree: Is english school discipline always done in private?

 Kenny: Most slipperings and spankings were carried out in front of the class. Canings by the headmaster or headmistress were usually in private.

 

 Bree: Is there any form of testing for a headmaster or headmistress in the use of discipline before hiring?

 Kenny: I never heard of that, although interviewing panels would once have been keen to reassure themselves the candidate was able to maintain discipline.

 

 Bree: Has banning the use of corporal punishment in UK schools turned out to be a good or a bad thing?

 Kenny: No-one has so far found an effective alternative. The near silence in which most lessons were conducted has long gone and schools are now very noisy environments. Students get up and wander around the class, or even outside the room, at will. Bullying is rife. Assaults on teachers are at a record high. I’m sure there are other factors involved, but the loss of being able to use CP as one option is, I’m sure, one of the major factors.

 

 Bree: When you were teaching did you often use CP?

 Kenny: No, I never found it hard to keep order and maintain students’ interest in lessons and so rarely had the need to use punishment of any kind. Most of the times I did use it was at the request of students (in place of another sanction) or their parents, usually mothers.

Mojo Monday with Constance Masters

myhousemyrules_detail

 

This week for Mojo Monday, I would like to offer a huge hello to Constance Masters. Constance is the author of the incredible DD book called My House, My Rules. I loved this story and I know you will to. I am so glad to have you here today. Welcome!

 

Bree: How long have you been writing?

Constance: I’ve been writing for a while but my first novella was published last May. I started writing fanfiction. I still do but not as often, time is not always my friend.

 

Bree:How did you get into writing this genre?

Constance: I LOVE this genre. I’ve always loved reading romance novels. All kinds but I always felt like something was missing. When I realised that I could read the stories that I love with the spankings I’d always imagined slotted into all the right places I was in heaven. I felt like I’d found my place.

 

Bree: Who or what inspires you to write?

Constance: Everyone and everything inspires me to write. I love to add a little humour into my writing and that’s how I see the world. Of course I have my down and sad times like everyone else. You have to see the funny side though or you’d go crazy right?

 

Bree: What is your biggest fantasy”

Constance: Gee I think that might be to wake up young again where I could really put my fantasies into practice back when my house wasn’t full of people big and small who don’t have a healthy respect for privacy.

 

Bree: Have you or would you write about it?

Constance: Now there’s a thought…maybe I could hit my head and wake up young again…

 

Bree: Tell me about your favorite book (that you wrote).

Constance: So far I think that would be My House, My Rules. It’s the story of a widow who has a spanking romance writer move in next door. She’s a hot mess and has never really recovered from her husband’s death or settled in to her new found responsibilities as a single parent.

 

Bree:What are you working on right now?

Constance: A couple of new books. One is about a couple of friends who separate after an argument. The guy goes off to school and the girl stays in the home town and dates one loser after another. They inadvertently meet up in Vegas which is where the story begins.

The other is a story about two women that swap lives and families for two weeks. Each of them learn a few things about the way the other woman lives.

 

Bree: Do you write under a pen name?

Constance: Yes.

 

Bree: What advice would you give to anyone that wants to write in the genre?

Constance: Write what you like to read because when you force something it never feels right. If you always wanted to try and write a book give it a go. Don’t go through life with wondering. It’s a lot of fun and you’ll make many great friends that will always be willing to help you.

 

Bree: Do you live the lifestyle? (DD or D/s)

Constance: I guess we do but I’m not really keen on labels for us. I think my husband has always been the head of the household long before we were into spanking. Maybe if there were computers when we first got married (Geez that makes me sound so old) we may have introduced that into our marriage then but we’ve been married a long time and we’re happy so why fix what isn’t broken?

 

Bree: when you are not writing, what are you doing? Hobbies? Etc.

Constance: I like reading, playing guitar and piano. I don’t have a lot of time though these days so I usually do something with my youngest son. The three of us go to the movies,watch television, play cards…simple things. Then of course there’s the grandchildren…

If you would like to purchase Constance Masters book My House, My Rules, or any of her other books, you can follow these links. Give it a try, its a great read. And please go say hello to Constance on her blog, just click here.

Mojo Monday-Age Play with Uncle K.

This week we I am so pleased to introduce my Uncle K. He is warm and fuzzy and the best uncle around. And he is gonna talk a little bit about Age Play and what it means to him. Please feel free to comment and ask any questions you may have. If you do not want to comment publicly though, just email me and I am happy to forward his email address to you. biglittlegirl

 

 

My good friend and favorite niece BreeBree, asked me if I would do a post about age play for her blog. When someone as cute as her asks, it is hard to say no. Well, not that hard, and I like this topic and her so here we go.

To her I am Uncle K. I have been into age play for the past ten years of my life. Five of those years have been spent with my wife and little girl, Lily. Over the past five years we have had our ups and downs, but I have never been closer to anyone in my whole life, and age play has played a big role in that.

I got my start a long time ago, with a girlfriend who was into age play. While the relationship with this girl was short lived, it changed something inside me. Every relationship I have had since has been a Daddy/little girl one.

Age play can cover pretty much any age. A majority of littles are younger but can range from infants, toddlers, or even up to teens. Yes… some not only act the part but dress it as well. Including wearing adult diapers and adult size baby clothes. And yes, some do use their diapers for their intended purpose. The little’s partner is normally a parental figure to them, but can also be an uncle, brother, cousin or any variation. In my case I have always been a Daddy to Lily or an Uncle to a few others.

One of the main questions I am asked about this lifestyle is “do you ever get tired of being a Daddy or an Uncle all the time?” My answer is simply, no. I do not mind taking care of others, I enjoy it. Like I tell my girl all the time, my number one job is to take care of her, and to love her. This means helping her with homework, keeping her on task, rubbing her back so she can sleep at night, packing her lunch, picking out her clothes, and well, you get the point. While some people think this is totally unfair for one person to do all that and more all the time, I would remind them that I enjoy this and gladly signed up for it. There are also people that think that being cared for this way sounds like an easy life and would love to jump right in. This is also not the case.

This is a unique type of relationship, one that involves a great deal of trust. For someone to open up like this to another person is a gift. They are exposing themselves to their very core. This is why when people ask me questions about getting into this, I always tell them to think about what they are willing to put out there. Whether being a Big or a little, there is a lot to think about. As a Big you have to want to be responsible for another person, much like you would a child. You also have to be ready to earn and maintain their trust in you. As a little, you have to make sure you are ready to depend on another person, and are willing to place them in control of even little things like feeding, or playing with you.

This isn’t to say that bumps don’t come along. Come on, everyone makes mistakes, things can be fixed but sometimes it takes longer to fix then others, especially when trust or communication breaks down. The most important thing to remember is to be open and honest with yourself and your partner. Regardless of your roles in the relationship, communication is the key. I would definitely recommend talking about the good and the bad that happened during your age play time, particularly if this is a new area for you. Sometimes little people forget that us Bigs can’t read minds, and we need a hand in figuring out where to go and what to do next.

I encourage anyone who thinks that this type of relationship is something you want, to go for it. The worse thing that happens is that you find out it is something that you really don’t want after all. If anyone has questions or comments, I am happy to answer them, and give any help or advice I can to help you find your way, or just help get things back on track.

Embracing your Kink

 

Thank you to Bree for inviting me to Mojo Monday!  It’s an honor to hang out with the Grand Dame of spanking. For those of you who don’t know me, I came out of the closet as a spanko less than a year ago, after I published my first spanking romance.

 

Remember the Langston Hughes poem about a dream deferred?  I have a theory about a kink deferred.  I think a kink turned inward on itself–an unexpressed kink, or unaccepted kink—festers just like that dream. I let mine fester for far too long before I asked for what I wanted (a spanking. Or two.  Or 500!) Only then did I finally start to understand that I wasn’t “weird,” that submission could be empowering, and that expressing myself sexually was something I should not have neglected.

 

I think that the occasional “creepy” blog comment that comes in in spankoville is from someone who is living in shame of their kink.  It causes a strange vibe.  Who knows, maybe sex crimes wouldn’t exist if people would just ASK for what they wanted and feel okay about asking. Rape fantasies can be acted out with willing partners, spankings can be had with safe words.  Age play can heal childhood traumas for both participants.

 

But I’m not saying that fetish/kink comes from a place of loss or trauma.  I’m not a spanko because I got spanked too much as a kid or not enough, or because my daddy didn’t love me as much as I wanted him to.  I just came into this world with a lust for the spank.  I love the thrill of the power exchange, the vulnerability of trusting my man to be in charge and take me to a place of pain.  It’s not something that requires curing though unconditional love.  It’s something that requires spanking for orgasmic fantasy fulfillment!

 

I blur the lines between discipline and sex a lot in my books.  By the end, one or both of the characters will admit to liking spanking– and the intimacy forged between the characters through spanking will ultimately be what brings them together as a couple.  In my latest western spanking romance, The Devil of Whiskey Row, the prostitutes at Daddy Diggs’ brothel joke that spanking is Daddy Diggs’ substitute for sex.  He’s not in denial about the satisfaction he gets from disciplining his “girls”.

Here’s a very short excerpt:

 

He could hear her ragged breathing, but she hadn’t uttered any cries or whimpers, nor had she pleaded for him to stop. He rubbed her bottom lightly. It was perfectly shaped, like two round orbs—the firm muscle offering a satisfying, springy target. He didn’t know how Smoochy had disciplined Cora, but he imagined it was far more brutal than spanking.

Jake loved to spank. He loved the act of spanking and he loved that his girls submitted willingly to his discipline—even seemed to crave it as attention from him. Spanking was not overly painful, but it was humbling for the recipient. For the disciplinarian, it was an act of dominance, a declaration of power.

Since he hadn’t achieved her submission, he worked the dominance angle with Cora, spreading her cheeks and pressing his middle finger to the entrance of her anus. She stiffened like a board, squeezing her cheeks together tightly and lifting her torso horizontal to the floor. He applied several hard slaps to the back of her thighs, this time eliciting a tiny squeak.

“Cora,” he said gently, “you agreed to my rules, you agreed to my discipline.”

She shook her head rapidly. “No!” she gasped.

 

 

The Devil of Whiskey Row

 

Forced by miserable circumstance to work in a gold rush brothel, Cora Underhill hates what her life has become. When a fire sweeps through her workplace, she welcomes death as an end to it all. But then Jake Diggory crashes through her window for an unwelcome rescue, offering her shelter and a paid position at his establishment. She accepts, in spite of Jake’s fearsome reputation as ‘The Devil Diggory’, and soon sees another side to Jake–the firm but caring side of him which led his girls to name him ‘Daddy Diggs’.

Life at Daddy Diggs’ is an entirely new experience for Cora. Jake has strict rules which he backs up with over the knee discipline, but he will not tolerate any mistreatment of his girls and he can go from playing beautiful music on a piano to defending them with his bare fists. The strangest thing of all, however, is the fact that every girl at Daddy Diggs’ swears that Jake has never slept with her, or with any other woman for that matter, since his fiancée’s death back in Ireland fifteen years ago.

Cora attempts to emulate the other prostitutes at Daddy Diggs’, who enjoy making money, holding power over men and even the act of sex, but she still finds no pleasure in the company of men–until the day she inadvertently arouses the passion of The Devil Diggory.  His fierce lovemaking thaws some frozen part of her, but it seems Jake is only attracted to her because she resembles his dead fiancée. Confused by his new feelings for Cora and guilt over his broken vow of celibacy, Jake pushes Cora away. Can he come to terms with his past and claim Cora for his own, or will his grief keep them apart forever?
