Loren Had More to Say – Something About Loren Extended Out January 15th

I know you’ve heard me say this before, but some characters are just louder than others. Each one of them is different, but some characters just keep chattering and want to tell me everything from what they had for breakfast to what they want to do next year. Loren was one of the chatty kinds.

For me, one of the hardest things about writing is keeping anything short. The original novella of Something About Loren that went in the Dirty Daddy anthology drove me crazy because I kept having to decide what they needed to do and what Loren couldn’t ramble on about.

He really didn’t appreciate having to be succinct, so he was very excited when I started to write more of their story. One of the things he was most excited to explore outside of more age play with Gordon was his friendship with Cooper from The Accidental Master series.

In the extended version of Something About Loren, you’ll get to see my funny pups playing with Loren, and they even take a trip to the Bound & Controlled club. To say that Cooper was excited would be an incredible understatement.

The extended version of Something About Loren comes out this Friday, and I can’t wait to see what you think about Loren playing with the pups and their trip to the club. If you haven’t read their short, here’s a peek at the first chapter of Something About Loren.

Getting to Know Leon Better – Learning to Love Coming November 13th!

My confused Leon and my sweet Morgan…their story turned out differently than I thought it would when I sat down to originally begin figuring out Leon, but I love the way it turned out.

One of my favorite things to write about is college age characters because they’re still figuring out who they are, and I love that whole process. At the start of Learning to Trust, Leon had shoved his emotions to the back burner and was basically just putting one foot in front of the other. Destin pulled him out of his shell a bit (complaining and grumbling the whole way lol), but Leon still didn’t know who he was.

In Learning to Love, they both grow even more and we get to see more of Leon’s background. Meeting Leon’s parents for the first time is stressful and interesting for Morgan, but it really lets him get to know more about who Leon is inside.

Watching these two come together has been so much fun. Learning to Love is the last book for them, but I know that they’re going to pop up later down the line in interesting places. If you haven’t read Learning to Trust yet, these two have sweet age play, a bit of BDSM, and some fun scenes with Destin from The Only Way to Dream.

Check out the first chapter of Learning to Love which is up on preorder now and will go live on the 13th of November.

A Take Charge Daddy and a Free-Spirited Boy – Dirty Daddies 2020 Anthology

We all want to belong. Sometimes it’s little things that make us feel like we’re part of the club. In writing, one of the things that really made me feel like I belong was getting asked to do the Dirty Daddies anthology for this year. It probably sounds silly, but it’s basically other authors looking at you and saying that they like your work and they trust you to do the best you can when you participate.

But, man, writing shorter stories is soooo hard.

Like insanely frustrating.

Like it takes three times as long as it should to write because everyone in my head is long-winded.

Like they want to tell you what they bought at the grocery store kind of long-winded just because they want to chat.

So wrangling Loren and Gordon into a complete but not two-hundred-page story wasn’t easy, but the three of us managed it. Mostly Gordon, honestly. He’s the take-charge Daddy type who likes watching over Loren.

Loren is the smart, free-spirited type who doesn’t really want to grow up and Gordon loves that about him. Gordon just doesn’t understand what that might mean until a friend at work (someone by the name of Sawyer) starts talking to him about types of submission he’s never thought much about.

Something about Loren has sweet age play, a bit of BDSM, and some fun cameos. The anthology will go live on September 29th and is now on preorder at Amazon, Apple, and Barnes & Noble. The anthology is a mix of MF and MM stories and is available for $0.99, so it’s a fabulous deal.

I’m a Pantser, Or How My Characters Tell Me What To Do (Learning to Trust Out Now!)

No, it’s not a football match with oddly named teams…it’s the battle going on between authors. Some of you have probably seen comments or teasing complaints from authors about what they’ve outlined for their WIP (work in progress) and what the characters actually did in the book. Those confident creatures who think they can command a world are planners. They outline and organize and then sit down to write.

Me…I’m nowhere near that logical or organized. I fall into the wonderful group called pantsers. We fly by the seat of our pants with minimal planning and just see where the story takes us. It’s a different kind of confidence, like when you head out for a vacation but have no idea where you might end up. It’s more about the character and the journey and less about how you get there.

But in the pantsing world, we sometimes run into interesting problems, like when your character decides one book won’t be enough and he forces you to reshuffle an entire series. Leon’s very opinionated, if you hadn’t already guessed from seeing him in Destin’s story.

In writing him and figuring out who he is and how he loves, he decided he needed more than one book. So instead of his being the first in a new series where each book is about a different couple, he’s going to get at least two and will be either a duet or trilogy depending on how the second one goes. I’m not holding my breath on him being happy with two, so we’ll see how things go.

Even though it’s not going how I expected, the book came together quickly and they just feel right together. I can’t wait to show you what’s going to happen with my stubborn Leon (who Morgan calls his ostrich Daddy because while Leon behaves like a Daddy, he doesn’t seem to see himself the same way everyone else does) and Morgan, who is a bit shy at first but quickly warms to Leon as he sees how safe and confident Leon makes him feel.

Learning to Love is the first book for Leon and Morgan and is now live. Check out the first chapter if you’re curious.
