Thank You, Beta Readers!

I want to give a shout-out to the amazing team of beta-readers who helped out with Bad Girl Good.

You’ll all receive (or already have received) an email thanking you in ‘person’. But publicly, I want to say: Y’all Are Awesome!

thumbs up

Beta-readers make my books immeasurably better. They catch my silly mistakes, they tell me the truth about characters they hate or love, and they let me have it when I try to do things I shouldn’t do. They’re the first eyes on my stories, and the feedback helps a ton.

Thank you. 

Bad Girl Good will be hitting the electronic shelves shortly.

Call for Beta Readers

Hey, lovelies!

I’m finishing up final revisions of my latest domestic discipline novella, Bad Girl Good. Early this week, I’ll have the book ready for beta-reading.

If you’re interested in beta-reading, please fill out the form below.

Beta-reading entails reading through the book, taking note of any obvious inconsistencies, and providing general thoughts and feedback. It’s not editing, though I certainly welcome suggestions. Basically, I want to know if you enjoyed the story, if you thought the characters were believable and awesome, and how you felt about the sex and spankings. :)

This story includes: domestic discipline, spankings, M/f romance, a lil’ bit of anal, and a smidgen of humiliation. It’s intense domestic discipline, bordering on BDSM-lite. If anal and humiliation aren’t your thing, you might not like it. If whips and chains are more your style, this might be too tame for you. But if you enjoy a good romance with plenty of dirty sex and punishments, you’ll probably enjoy Bad Girl Good.

It’s around 40,000 words, so it’s a quick read. I’m hoping to have the beta-feedback within ten days of sending the novella out.

Thanks in advance! Here’s the form:

Edit: This call is now closed. Please stay tuned for more calls for help!

Heather, Ingrid, Or Someone New?

Rock Creek is on my mind. I often daydream about my kinky community. What are they up to? How’s Ingrid doing in Section Seven? Is Heather still happy with Mark and Rebecca?

I keep starting new books set in Rock Creek, but always come up short. I’ve realized why. There are a few reasons, actually.

  1. These Domestic Discipline Romances are nice, but totally throwing me off my BDSM-game. :)
  2. I’m writing fluffy happy stories. Rock Creek has happiness, but it’s also dark. It’s seedy. There’s corruption, there’s unfairness, and there’s manipulation. I like that there’s not always a happily-ever-after in Rock Creek.
  3. I keep starting books with new characters. New is fine, but I want to continue with Heather. Or perhaps Ingrid. I love those women, and I want to find out what happens next!

I’m going to write quick synopses of three potential books: Heather, post-Social Service. Ingrid, pre-Under Order. Ingrid, in Section Seven. One of those will be next for Rock Creek.

This lovely reader is the one who reminded me that there’s more to tell regarding Heather. Check out her review of Under Order on ‘Travel Nurse Toybox’. A snippet:

I can easily suggest this one and it’s sequel to all who are interested in or actively practicing BDSM. The sex scenes are definitely hot and the dominate/submissive relationship is an eye opener.

Reviews really help indie-authors! If you have a kink-friendly account on Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes and Noble, please be sure to review your favorite erotica!

Wet and Wild Bloghop: Big Giveaways!

wildhopIt’s time for another bloghop!

Summer is close. So close, I can almost feel it. Here in Austin, the cool nights have given way to warmth, and I’m fearfully anticipating the summer heat. Just how hot will it get?

I’ve been warned. It will get really really hot.

But hot days mean time in air-conditioned cafes, writing spicy fiction, spinning naughty tales. Austin has a humongous natural spring, too–the water kind of spring, not the season–and Austinites flock to the cool water, getting relief from the heat. I’m looking forward to afternoons there, taking quick dips, soaking up the sun. Yum.

This hop is filled with fantastic prizes. One lucky commenter will win a $100 gift certificate to Victoria’s Secret. Second prize is a digital gift basket of five sexy books.

WetAndWildGrandPrizes

On top of the grand prizes, every participating writer is having a giveaway of their own. On my blog, I’ll be choosing three winners! The prize: a digital copy of one of my books, winner’s choice.

Sadey Quinn Books

To enter on my blog, and to be entered to win one of the grand prizes, simply leave a comment below. I’ll grant additional entries into my personal raffle for any readers who follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and/or subscribe to my blog. Be sure to mention in your comment if you’ve followed (or you’re already following) me on a social network.

(For winners who already own my collection–and I mostly know who you are–I’ll send ya a print copy of your choice: Social Service, Under Order, or Spanktastic. Signed and sent by moi)

Be sure to cruise around to the other participating blogs for more prizes and more opportunities to win that Vikki’s card!

New Release: Odyssey for Passion

odyssey for passion

SQUEEEEE!!!

Sometimes when I’m excited, scared, or surprised, I make a super high pitched noise. Examples, eh…let’s see…

When I’m riding in a car and the driver makes a sudden move, or swerves. I squeak.

When the air popper-of-popcorn goes crazy, and shoots out kernels, seemingly aimed directly at me. I squeak. I did this in front of my roommate the other night, who said, “That was weird. And really cute.”

When a package arrives! Oooh that’s the best. Squeak squeak.

And, when I [finally] publish a book I’ve been sitting on for nearly a year: SQUEAK SQUEAK FUCKING SQUEAKERY SQUEAKING!

Odyssey for Passion is available for the Amazon Kindle. I’ll be putting this baby into print soon, too, and of course distributing to other venues (Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and AllRomanceEbooks). For now, it’s exclusively on Amazon. I haven’t decided on the perfect excerpt yet, but when I do, I’ll post it.

For now, just couldn’t wait one more minute to say: IT’S DONE. And it’s fabulous.

*Hair-toss*

Saturday Spankings! Spanktastic

Welcome to Saturday Spankings! To read more spanking excerpts, head over to the #SatSpanks HQ.

Below is a short snippet from Spanktastic: 22 Erotic Spanking Short Stories.

I took the beating well and looked over to Christina often. She was crying, her mouth still open wide in disbelief. Her hands were clutched in front of her now, her arms shaking. The poor thing was miserable and terrified.

Too bad she couldn’t look on the bright side like me.

After fifteen lashes from Jake’s leather belt, he stopped. He rubbed my ass and I pushed back into his hands, begging him with my body to touch me more. His hand slid between my legs and felt my pussy. He squeezed each lip and flicked my clit.

“I’m going to need your help with Christina,” he said.

Spanktastic is available from:
Print Edition
Amazon Kindle
Barnes and Noble Nook
KOBO eBooks
All Romance eBooks
