If you’ve read even just a few of my books, you know I love keeping characters and letting them pop up later. One of my favorite places to go back and visit is the Bound & Controlled club. The owners are so funny and I love seeing all the familiar faces.
So when I start thinking about writing a novella, I have a tendency to go back to the B&C club and see who’s hanging around. That’s how I met Arthur and Joseph. Ben and Conner have been playing matchmakers, but Joseph has a crazy work schedule. That means Arthur and Joseph have basically been pen pals as they’ve grown closer.
But at the start of the story, they’re finally getting ready to meet.
You get to see some of their emails in their story in the Dirty Daddies 2022 Anthology (my story is titled :Daddy Loves Confidence), but here’s the first one.
RE: This is Conner’s fault.
I’m going to have to admit that I’ve started this email several times with everything from To Whom It May Concern to Dear Joseph, and it’s just gotten more graceless from there. First introductions should always be done in person so chemistry can, hopefully, override awkwardness. But since that isn’t the case here and Conner is insisting that I email you (because he couldn’t find a smoother Daddy at the moment?), I’ve given up figuring out how to start this without it sounding inelegant or overly professional.
My goal from here on out is overly professional in case you’re wondering.
Conner is going to have a heart attack, so let’s not tell him? I think this can be a private matter between the two of us since this is mostly an audition to see if we would work out as Daddy and boy.
You know, I’m really starting to question what you did to Conner to make him think I would be a good fit for you? Did you hide his favorite drink at the club? Convince Ben that Conner didn’t need a spanking?
Yes, clearly this awkwardness is what Conner intended, so I think you need to take a good look at your life and figure out where things went wrong. If you need help with that task, feel free to email me back and we’ll work on it together.
These two are so cute together, but the anthology has a lot of other wonderful stories to check out too. Have fun reading, and I hope you love meeting Arthur and Joseph.
