The Only Way to Live New Bonus Chapter!

Derek (The Only Way to Live) recently decided he wanted to come back and play. He’s clearly not being kept busy enough at his adult toy store because he was bouncing up and down and saying he wanted to do something fun…and he’s entirely too enthusiastic to tell no.

He has a friend who wants some naughty help rewarding his sweet new sub, but to be a wonderful helper, Derek needs Sean’s help.

This is a bonus chapter that comes after the original story for Derek and Sean, and it sets up a sexy scene that you’ll see in Finley & Derek, Beautiful Shame 5 (releases on 1/27). This is teasing Finley’s story a bit, but you don’t have to wait to read Finley’s book to enjoy this bonus chapter.

And because teasing you guys is fun, I really don’t want you to wait until Finley’s book comes out to read this one…but if you want to torture me, I’ll understand.

If you haven’t read The Only Way to Live, it’s a fun age-gap story where the older character, Sean, never realized he wasn’t as straight as he’d always assumed. He calls Derek “Pest” if you want a clue about Derek’s personality.

It’s always hard to know when a bonus chapter or short can be read as a standalone. In this case, I think you can enjoy this bonus chapter without having read The Only Way to Live. You do not need to have read Finley and Jared’s story to enjoy this bonus chapter.

Have fun with these guys and with Finley and Jared when they show up next week.

For 1 month you can grab this bonus chapter from Bookfunnel – no sign ups required. Current newsletter subscribers can also download it from the Bonus Library.

After 1 month, it will be exclusively available in my Bonus Library to my newsletter subscribers.

Daddy Loves Confidence Now Available!

If you didn’t get a chance to grab Daddy Loves Confidence when it was in the Dirty Daddies 2022 Anniversary Anthology, it’s now live on Amazon. If you already purchased it, nothing has changed. If you read it in KU the first time and want to do a reread because they’re so cute together, feel free to grab the standalone version and read it in KU.

I love the way they start their relationship long distance and how nervous they both are when they finally meet in person. Arthur is a Daddy with a dry sense of humor and Joseph is a cute little with a passion for cereal.

Have fun with these two, and if you loved it the first time, it would be really helpful if you reviewed the standalone book on Amazon. Thank you for all your kind words about these two and to my group for helping me come up with some of Arthur’s background.

Conner is Matchmaking! – Pre-Order Finley & Jared Now!

Some of my favorite things to write are dirty talk and naughty subs who like pretending they aren’t naughty…which is why I looove writing my Beautiful Shame books so much. There’s something wonderfully fun about blushing cuties who love being dirty, and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of writing those types of characters.

Just sitting down and starting the next Beautiful Shame book made me smile because Finley (my newest dirty cutie) was so dramatic and so funny. Even Conner loves hanging out with him but always ends up rolling his eyes or saying something to tease my naughty cutie.

Making Finley blush is one of his favorite new hobbies.

At the start of Finley and Jared’s book, Finley is asking Conner to help find him a Dom. Conner loves playing matchmaker and he loves making Finley blush, so he’s having a delightful time. Finley is more than a little skeptical about the whole thing until Conner introduces him to the sexy, young Master Jared.

The fifth Beautiful Shame book will be out on January 27th and has lots of voyeurism, exhibitionism, and fun humiliation. Jared has a wonderful imagination and a big heart. I can’t wait for you to meet these two.

Check out the first chapter here.

Do You Remember Bishop? He’s Back! – Our Pup Now Available!

The boxed set Our Love was released last September and had the complete series for Bishop, Cohen, and Ian. Our Pup is Bishop’s first book in the boxed set and is now live on its own.

Bishop is the cute pup and best friend of Wesley from the Leashes & Lace series and Archer from the Beautiful Shame series. Bishop is flirty and funny and a delightful pup…and is quickly falling for Cohen and Ian when he meets them at a party for the L&L guys.

This is MMM with a Daddy, a switch, and a little. It takes place over three books: Our Pup, Our Boy, and Our Dom. The full series was already released as a boxed set last September, and now the individual books are coming out for those readers who don’t like boxed sets. Nothing extra has been added to the book for this release.

Whether you’re looking to do a reread or to grab the books for the first time, these guys are sweet and so cute as they figure out how to make their family work. As always, this is low angst and they’re great communicators.

Have fun with my cuties.

A Random Assortment of Publishing Plans for 2023

Every December I sit down to plan out the most logical books I should release for the next year—and every year the plan goes wildly off track. (Insert mental image of author shaking head here.) But, like clockwork, I did it again because I’m a planner by nature and I love lists.

Some of the books I know will get written are from the His To…Series: His to Use and His to Love (early in the year). I also have high on the to-do list to make sure Aubrey and Lincoln’s book gets written this year (Aubrey shows up in Rethinking Fate), as well as another Too Close book.

You’re probably starting to see a theme here…

So did I. (Picture me shaking my head again.)

So I added books to the list that will be able to go on Amazon. I’m less sure of these, but right now, I have that I want to write more about the pups from the Leashes & Lace world. I want to go back to my omegaverse and write more about the littles from the club at the very least. I’ve also been playing around with ideas for a story about Ben and Conner (from the Bound & Controlled club).

There are a lot of fun options from my list of side characters that I’ve been adding to and making notes about this year. My Facebook group has been great about helping me collect all the random characters that have stories, and the list is now on my whiteboard in my office.

The books I know will come out at the beginning of the year because I’ve already gotten a lot written in them (smiling author image here lol) is another Beautiful Shame book. Finley is a sweet, naughty slut, and he’s adorable. You’re going to love him.

I’ve also got a great start on another novella in the alien world. This is going to be in the Dirty Daddies Spring Anthology. Tentacle Daddy is very intent on finding a little to care for. I love writing those guys and my new alien, Wright, is just as earnest as the rest.

There are also a half-dozen first chapters of several other ideas that have popped up over the last few weeks. Like, I know who the guy was downstairs cheering on Brady in Save Me Santa. The number of random book beginnings I’ve done over the past month is truly ridiculous, but I’m very grateful that the people in my head are chatty.

Hopefully, 2023 will continue with that theme and the characters will continue to be excited and helpful.

I would love to be able to write everything that’s bouncing around in my head, but that means they all have to cooperate. So, fingers crossed for a productive year and lots of books.

Comment below: What are you most interested in reading this year from me?

Personal Recap of 2022

This has been such an odd year and it feels almost like a turning point in my life. I will be the first to admit I didn’t get nearly as much written as I wanted to (although I apparently published 22 titles!), but I can’t complain because the tradeoff was that I got to spend a lot of time with my son during his senior year of high school.

Getting my son ready to go off to college with everything that entails practically and emotionally was a huge learning experience—and a lot to do as a single mom—but I’m so proud of him…and not just because of how he’s done in college. He’s figuring out the balance between asking for help and doing things himself and he’s learned so much. But he’s also been a wonderful big brother even though he’s not home all the time now.

When I left for college, I can honestly say my family never missed me. They just weren’t that type of people and we never had a close relationship so leaving just exaggerated that. But my daughter and I can honestly feel the difference when my son is gone and it was a stark reminder for me about how different my relationship is with my kids than my parents had with me.

Now as we approach 2023, I’m getting my daughter ready to start college next fall and learning things all over again. She’s so different than my son, but it’s been wonderful to show her all his successes and let her see it hasn’t been a scary process. I can’t wait to see how things go for her next fall when she starts college, but that’s going to be hard because it will be the first time in a very long time that I’ve been on my own.

It’s going to be so weird, but I’ve got a lot planned to keep me busy, and my daughter has told me not to worry because she’s decided to basically live in my basement forever once she finishes college.

So…yeah, not sure if I should be worried about that or not, but the sentiment is…sweet? It sounds like I need a hermit cave in the next house. What’s a She Shed that’s technically in a basement?

To keep me busy next year, I’ve got a lot of books planned and I’m even going to be at RARE in Florence, Italy next September. That means it will be time for a big vacation while I travel all over. Balancing traveling and work will be an interesting challenge, but it’s going to be so much fun. I plan on staying busy in a lot of ways, and hopefully, that means I can do a lot more book events going forward.

I hope this year was wonderful for you and that you have big plans for next year. I’m doing my best to teach my kids to dream big, so I hope you do the same. Good luck in 2023.
