Are you ready for The UPS guy?

One of the side characters I’ve gotten a ton of questions about is my cute, awkward UPS guy. He’s showed up in several books, most notably when he’s driving Eli crazy. Let’s just say the UPS man was very curious about what was going on at Leashes & Lace.

Well, UPS guy now has a name and even a story. Spencer (my UPS guy) is uncoordinated, confused, and so loveable you just want to wrap him up. His book is the fifth in the Leashes & Lace series and will be out on Friday, November 15.

The only man patient and loving enough for Spencer was Devin, Roman’s cousin from the LGBT youth center, so in this book you not only get Spencer’s story but Devin’s as well. I can’t wait to see what you think about them.

Check out the first chapter here if you’re curious.

Being Accepted For Who You Are -Without Limits Coming Soon

One of the things that was hard for me growing up was knowing I was different but not being able to put a name to it. There were so many stories and ideas running through my head and things I was curious about, but I didn’t have anyone to talk about them with.

When I first started writing (my taboo books in particular), it was amazing to have so many people to share that part of myself with and who were drawn to it as well. The readers who’ve contacted me over the past couple of years to share how my books have touched them or how they’ve related to my characters have meant the world to me. But they also got me thinking.

I couldn’t help but wonder how differently my life would’ve turned out if there had been someone for me to talk to as a kid who’d really understood or who could’ve just accepted me for who I was, not who I’d been told I had to be. So I started thinking about my characters (because really, most of my life involves thinking about how they would react to things lol). That’s where Trent and Hayden came from.

From the first moment they popped up as side characters it was clear they’d been best friends forever, and I wanted to show that relationship. I wanted them to have each other from the very beginning so there was always someone who understood them.

So when I sat down to write their story, I started when they were eight. Kids have such a clear way of seeing things, without all the worries about the whys and fears about what it says about them. They just love and they accept. And when everything is going against you like it is for Hayden and Trent, unconditional acceptance is what keeps you going.

I hope you enjoy their book, and I hope that someday every child can be who they were meant to be without anyone making them feel like it’s wrong.

Hayden Has a Secret – Without Limits Coming Soon!

I think these might be the cutest characters I’ve ever written. Last month I sat down to figure out what to write next and thought Hayden and Trent (side characters from Beautiful Shame, Book 3) would be a fun and easy book to write. I knew how their story ended and assumed it would be really short.

I was wrong.

Unsurprisingly, it turned out longer than I expected. When I sat down to start, I knew that because they’d known each other forever I had to start at the beginning. Well, the beginning for them was when they were kids. I just wasn’t sure how that would turn out.

The first chapter is where Trent discovers that his best friend Hayden has a secret…well, two really…then we jump to when they’re older. There are several time jumps in the book because they just has so much they wanted to share. I’ve done my best to make sure the jumps are clear and make sense in the story line, but there are no flashbacks so that should make it easier.
Here is the start of Without Limits.

Casey… Leashes and Lace Book 4

I can’t believe it’s less than a week until Casey is finally out. Friday can’t come soon enough. As shy as he is, he really works at making sure Preston knows what he wants, even when it’s hard. Of course, his friend Lane and the always helpful Eli are looking to make sure Casey gets his happily ever after.

One of the hard parts about writing this book was the time delay between when Preston and Casey first met and when they actually started dating. To give you an idea about what Casey went through during that time, I’ve included entries from Casey’s personal blog that works almost like a diary for him.

The blog entries give you a peek into how he’s grown since first meeting the guys at Leashes & Lace. The posts let you see how he grew and changed during that missing time. Here’s a look at the first blog post in the book and a link to the first chapter. Have fun meeting Casey.

 

I know I don’t tell you guys a lot about my job; being an accountant is boring most of the time. Some of you will remember that the company I work for makes lingerie. What I might have glossed over was that one of the lines they make is lingerie for men. Well, we went to visit one of the companies this week that sells our brand and it was…I can’t even think of the word.

When I started this blog, it was just to have a place to talk things through and figure out who I was. I thought I’d finally gotten a handle on what I wanted. I’ve admitted to you guys I’m submissive, and I’ve even talked about some of the things I’m curious about, but man…today was…mind-blowing.

The guys were wearing panties.

I mean, I’m not stupid. I realize that’s a thing, but it was the first time I’ve seen men who looked like that…they were beautiful.

Let me go back—because I think I’m jumping around. When we went to the other company, they were nice and gave us a tour. Part of the tour was seeing a photo shoot with the lingerie my company makes. Seeing the men dressed in so little and just wandering around the room was…I probably looked like I was in an old cartoon with my eyes bugging out of my head, but I couldn’t help myself.

They were so confident and incredible. The models seemed to come in all shapes and sizes, from big buff guys in sexy panties to little twink guys like me in see-through nightgowns. I can’t believe I’m going to write this, but I’m curious…you guys didn’t think it was weird when I talked to you about the spanking stuff, but is this…what do you think?

Synopsis:
Casey knows what he wants; he’s just not always sure how to go about getting it. He knows he’ll never get Preston, the sexy man who runs Leashes & Lace, to notice him unless he’s ready to open up and step out of his comfort zone. But can he really tell the confident, sweet man that what he wants most of all is a master?

Preston knows that what he wants might be startling for the shy man he’s starting to fall for, but after a year of dancing around their attraction to one another, he knows it’s time to take things to the next level. But will Preston’s wide-eyed accountant be able to accept that Preston isn’t as vanilla as he might appear?

When shyness and secrets stand between two men who are perfect for one another, it might take friends near and far to give them the push they need.

Story Contains: M/m sexual content, mild BDSM, gender-fluid dressing, and two accidentally inebriated subs who lose their filters

The Puppy Play Photo Shoot

As Tyler smiled over the utter chaos, I knew he’d been the perfect choice to run the shoot. I tried to imagine Roman wading through the pups dashing around on the floor chasing balls, and I had to swallow a laugh. He’d have been miserable, but Tyler looked perfectly at home, despite the fact that he was new to Leashes and Lace as a photographer.

Organizing the shoot hadn’t been as difficult as I’d expected, but I still wasn’t sure how it would all come together. With such a mix of personalities, I knew the pictures would either be perfect or end up looking awkward and pieced together.

Making sure we’d added extra time to the schedule to let them get comfortable together had been a good idea.

“They look so cute,” Eli said with a happy sigh, smiling as he surveyed the pups in the room.

“Yes, but we’ve got a few very nervous models still.” Some of the pups had already met at different functions, and their excitement was almost contagious. However, there were a few who were still close to their handlers’ side, quietly watching as the other pups raced around.

It was designed to be a more candid shoot, so we weren’t looking for stylish perfection. Pups were fun and full of life, and I wanted every picture infused with their excitement and energy. Getting them all into the right frame of mind before we started the more structured portion of the shoot would be key, however.

We watched as Tyler knelt down and rolled a ball to one of the pups still on the sidelines. The handler smiled encouragingly as the pup looked up and gave a low bark. When the handler leaned down and reached for the ball, the pup’s excitement started to build.

Whatever words the handler said were too low for us to hear, but the pup sat up and I could see his tail starting to wag. When the man tossed the ball back over to Tyler, the pup barked again, his head swinging back and forth between the two men.

Tyler’s smile widened as he held it for a long, teasing moment before rolling it back to the handler, clearly trying to tempt the pup. It was too much for the pup to resist. As the ball tumbled past him on the floor, he hopped on it, barking frantically like he’d caught the world’s best toy and it was all his.

The man laughed and leaned closer to run his hand down the pup’s back before bringing it up to caress over the masked muzzle. The pup’s whole body wiggled and squirmed in pleasure as his tail swung back and forth.

Each of the pups were dressed differently, depending on their comfort level, and this one had tiny black shorts under a harness that secured his simple black tail in place. Special gloves gave him the look of paws, and knee pads made it easy to dash around on the floor, but the mask really brought it all together.

The pup’s mask was neoprene, so it was soft and breathable, but the colors and features really brought out the uniqueness of each pup. It was always interesting to see which ones they’d picked to represent that side of themselves.

It’d taken some time to figure out how to handle the puppy gear side of Leashes and Lace. But once we’d realized they needed more autonomy than the more traditional models did when it came to what they wore, it all came together.

Depending on what line we were advertising, the pups got a variety of things to choose from. We’d only had a few times where for some reason one of the masks or tails weren’t chosen, and that usually gave us a good indication it wouldn’t sell in the long run anyway. If the pups who modeled the gear weren’t interested in it, then a curious person who was browsing through the site would probably never be drawn to it.
