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.

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.
