And... *drumroll* "Love Slave for Two: Reckoning (Bk 4)" is coming August 27th. :)
Today, however, is release day for "Good Will Ghost Hunting: Hell's Bells," book 2 in my Good Will Ghost Hunting series. :)
And I'm looking forward to being at The Romance Convention in August in Dallas. It's the first annual one, sponsored by Siren-BookStrand. AND... I'm teaching a BDSM class. :)
It's going to be a party and a half. :)
The dynamic we have wouldn't work if we all didn't have stable, solid marriages in the first place. And everyone gets their needs met without anyone having to feel guilty for not wanting to play or not wanting to participate, or worse, participating only to make the other person happy. It's a win-win for everyone.
No, I haven't read the "50 Shades" trilogy, although I did try. Friends of mine in the lifestyle who have read it tell me they aren't happy with how BDSM is portrayed in the books. I simply tell people to enjoy them as fiction, but in no way to take them as an authoritative look at the BDSM lifestyle. It was written by a vanilla person not involved in the lifestyle. (I've seen tv interviews with her.)
That's why when I write BDSM, I try to stay within the realms of realism (if it's a contemporary story and not sci-fi or paranormal). No, I don't reflect how all people practice BDSM, only how I have experienced it or witnessed it. That's what's so great about BDSM, or WIITWD (What It Is That We Do) is that anyone can define what they want it to be or how they want to live it. There is NO "won twue way." If anyone tells you you're doing it "wrong," they're an asshat. (Unless, of course, they're pointing out a legitimate safety issue, duh.) If you're not causing harm, if everyone's consenting, and you're having fun, then you're doing it right.
If you haven't read any of my BDSM books, I did a blog post about it on my site:
And I wrote a non-fiction BDSM tutorial for writers (and anyone who's curious) that you can find at my website at:
