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!

A Butterfly’s Joy on Under Order and Social Service

Joy from A Butterfly’s Joy (a great blog you should follow) recently wrote up some of her thoughts about Under Order and Social Service.

I got all emotional reading them, to be honest. She’s such a passionate writer. It’s an honor that she took time to share her thoughts with the world.

From her review of Under Order:

I find Miss Sadey’s book a little bit closer to the “French school” since she isn’t making kink too smooth and justified for the audience. The scenes are sexy in a brutal way. The tests are hard, and the pains are so raw.

I won’t quote directly from her review of Social Service because it contains some spoilers for those who haven’t read Under Order. But I’ll quote a little aside at the end of her review that I found particularly interesting:

Finally one comment on the Under Order. Today my thought wandered to Fifty Shades of Grey and how different my world is from it–even from the time I read it a year ago. One of the most powerful scenes in the Under Order  is when Mark beats Heather with his belt. I wonder what the Fifty fans would think about this scene–reading it in comparison with E.L. James making Ana to leave when things become real. Maybe that’s why Ana and Christian never grow up. They are Barbie dolls in that billionaire fairy-tale. We readers should know better than that.

Thank you, Joy! I’m happy we became friends on the e-mail/twitter planes of the internet. 🙂 Perhaps one day in real life too!

Under Order: Free August 21-25

I’m doing one last promotion for Under Order before pulling it from the special Amazon program and publishing it with other outlets. If you want a free copy, head on over to the Kindle store and download it. 🙂

Someone asked me, in regards to the promotion for Cream of the Crop: Disciplined Sex, why authors/publishers give their books away for free.

There are a few reasons, but it mainly boils down to the simple fact that I need readers in order to have readership!

Last night a new, kind of hysterical review for Under Order showed up on Amazon. I like it. A lot.

OMG, HOT, HOT, HOT.
Any wannabe `subbie’ should read this first and be sure they check for details! (never sign anything unread, press for answers, etc.)

🙂

Anyway. Free book. Here.

Social Service will be free August 26-30.

Spanktastic will be free August 31-September 4.

If you wanna help an author out, click the “like” button under the title of the book on Amazon. And of course, reviews and feedback are always amazing.

Review: Under Order

A voracious reader, Ciara, kindly wrote a review of Under Order. Check out her review of my novel, along with her thoughts on other novels, over at her blog.

I sent Ciara my novel after reading her review of 50 Shades of Grey. I figured, hey, she’s eloquent! And someone who likes 50 Shades might like my books!

Then I read her reviews of other novels and began to get nervous… The woman is freaking honest. Which is a good thing, by the way. I’ve always told myself a review is less than shit if it isn’t honest.

Needless to say, I’m really happy Ciara enjoyed the book. It’s nerve-wracking to send books out to be reviewed. Most of the time people choose not to read, or don’t read for whatever reason, or maybe they do read it but don’t want to tell me they thought that it sucked.

Which leads me to tell you about my first bad review. If you were just reading this for Ciara’s review, click here. Because I’m about to digress…

The First Bad Review
It was a few months after publishing the book. I woke up one morning and noticed I had a new review on Goodreads! Oh heavens! The excitement!

Then I saw it. One freaking star.

My heart sank. My throat tightened. What, oh what did I do to deserve one horrible star?

I won’t say what book it was for, and I won’t say who the reviewer is, but I will say this: She slept on her review and changed it. To four stars (out of five). She was just so flipping angry with me for part of the book that she couldn’t do anything but hate the story.

This, folks, is a strange power that should be in the hands of no writer. Erm, or at least not me.

The woman who hated the book has become one of my best contacts for feedback and insight. I love it. I flipping love the interaction I have with readers. I love the dialog. I love that I’m starting to see a few of them as ‘friends’.

I love that Under His Roof is going to be a better book because of their help.

It actually makes me choke up and get all soppy.

Is soppy even a word?
