Well, my friends… It is going to be happening! What, you ask? Boy, howdy.. a load of things.
First, plans are moving forward for me transitioning into working part-time in my ‘vanilla’ field! Yep, James has finally convinced me and, this week, we aregetting the office set up so that I can devote a good four days a week to writing! Is that exciting, or what? Maybe not so much for Nikki… because I plan on being home a lot more.. but who knows? Maybe I can press her into exploring her own creativity! Or she will be so sick of me, she will get a job.
Second, and this is the BIG thing… John and I are going to write a book together! It will be non-fiction and direct how we, personally, set up a D&S household. As a professional counselor, I will also discuss different factors that may present themselves, and how to handle them- in both the D&S and vanilla aspects of the journey. We hope to provide a safe, informational guideline that will benefit those of you out there who desire to explore and/or grow in this type of lifestyle. As there are many different types of individuals, there is also many different personalities to the lifestyle, and we will do our best to cover as many of them as we can. We will also cover the pros and cons, ways to weasel (from yours truly), and warning signs to prevent negative repercussions. Your safety and happiness is most important to us, and we have seen too many peeps being led in dangerous directions by incorporating physical, mental and emotional techniques in the ‘name’ of obedience. This will NOT be a book about BDSM, nor are we going to address any religious practices within it. So, for those ofyou who wish to be Tops… we hope this will help guide you. And you Bottoms… The gift of submission is one to be cherished and nurtured, and our hope is to communicate that as well as possible.
A word of warning…. this week has reminded me that being a strong, consistent dominant is exhausting! I mean, it is hard work! It had also reinforced the trust and faith a Dom and his/her submissive must develop in his/her relationship. In a sense, this book will be a guidelines for a happy, healthy and communication based marriage/commitment. So wish us luck! Why? Because Nikki is going to be typing it all out as John dictates his side! She just doesn’t know that yet……

The new site looks great! It’s been… wow- a while since I have visted maybe beging of January and from the looks of it you have been busy. I will have to catch up since I went mia for a bit. How exciting and wonderful you two writing a book together. I look forward to reading it you have a way with calming people of the fears which tend to be biggesr in their heads and explain things so well. This sounds like it will be a very useful guide for those interested in DS.
I can’t wait to read it! My husband and I could use some good insight for our relationship. We are still trying to figure out the mechanics of it all. Good Luck! And congratulations on the new job 🙂
That’s great news! I’m being a little selfish though because I get more books 😉 Can’t wait for the collaboration either. I think it will help a lot of people – especially peoplewho have no clue about d/s relationships and look down on those in the lifestyle. For me, it will give me an insight on whether or not it’s something for me to consider. I don’t know if I would be drawn to these books if I didn’t have a little bit of a personal interest.
