Call for Beta Readers

I have one more found of edits to make before the next novella is ready. Beta-readers, y’all ready to read? :) :)

Ideally you’ll have read Under His Roof and Taking His Hand, though it’s not completely necessary (in fact, I’d like at least one person who hasn’t read the books, to make sure my introduction is sufficient for this book to stand alone).

Let me know if you’re interested by filling out the form below. Thanks in advance!

I AM SO BAD AT TIMELINES

Seriously, you’d think I’d learn.

I made the first half of edits to Under His Roof part Trois (yet unnamed, because goddamn it, I’m bad at titles, too). About a third of the way through the edits, I started jotting down pretend dates, just to be sure things lined up. This novella covers Christmas, Valentine’s Day, a birth, and a wedding. As I was reading it, I realized that there’s no way it could work the way I’d written it.

Damn it.

Luckily, I’m used to this, because every book I write has this exact same problem. You’d think I’d learn. After getting slightly more frustrated than I should’ve, I closed my laptop, walked around the block, took a few deep breaths, and then returned. Ordered a refill coffee, sat my ass back down, spread out the pages, and fixed the things.

I pushed around an accident, killed a scene, and changed some minor details. I think it’s squared away now.

The next book I write, I’m gonna try to actually outline. Think ahead. If I pretend I’m capable of that, and maybe it’ll work?

Fake it ’til you make it, baby.

(Hey GUESS WHAT?! I worked today! It was glorious. Almost three whole hours. Boom.)

Ding Dong

The bitch is dead.

While death is not normally a cause for celebration, our planet is a smidgen less evil today, and that’s a good thing. And I don’t think any other person has done more for promoting the dangers of fundamentalism than Mr. Phelps, and for that, I’m thankful for his stupid, hate-filled life. Adios, asshole.

Another reason to celebrate is on a completely different topic: My copy of Twisted: Bondage With An Edge arrived in the mail! I love seeing my stories in print, and this is the first time I’ve been published by a major real-deal publishing company. Woot!

Twisted: Bondage Erotica, Anyone?

twisted

A billion months ago, I wrote a little bondage story and sent it over to Ms. Alison Tyler–who is, as it happens, the editor of the very first book of erotic stories I read as I was starting to write smut. I love her stories, and love her compilations. She works a lot with Cleis Press, so if you’re in the mood for some kinky fiction, check out her stuff and Cleis Press in general.

My story was accepted for publication, and I just realized that the book actually got published–woot! Twisted is available for Kindle, and will be released in paperback in February.

The Sadey story is called ‘Justice’, and sets a scenario in which prisoners are sexually tortured by a mechanical robot, at the hands of paying voyeurs.

Because that’s how I roll.

The list of other contributors is here. A nice line-up, I’m happy to be part of it!

:)
