#SatSpanks I'd love to [spank myself] for you

8 or so sentences from writers who love to spank or be spanked. Please enjoy my snippet and then move onto the other hoppers- their links are at the bottom of this post.



I'm hoping to get back to a super hot sex scene between Bina and Tabitha that my teen interrupted because someone texted "Happy Thanksgiving" to our phone and he didn't know the number- I'll probably even share some of that scene in a future SatSpanks. For now I want to share a bit of my ladies talking about their spanking interests during their first cyber date. Bina is speaking about a woman she'd formerly had a long distance relationship with.

---

"She wanted to spank me but I wanted to spank her." Bina licked her lips. "She wasn't at all open to switching. She wasn't open to implements or even the idea of spanking herself so I could watch over the webcam."

Tabitha blinked her eyes, sitting in the arousal building from Bina's words. "I'd love to for you."

Bina sat up straight in her chair. "Ah, I wasn't asking you, at least not yet.

#WIPiTuP Tabitha and Bina brainstorm poly

Sharing WIPs (works in progress) can be so very fun! On this lovely blog hop, enjoy a bunch of authors sharing excerpts of what they're working on- get ready to add some great books to your TBR, once the author publishes :) Although occasionally you may find an author sharing a published work. Give 'em a break- these may just be roughly edited- but please do leave a comment! We authors like to know we're going in a good direction.



There has been lots of jokes about story-ception in my household this Nano, with my nano novel about romance writers and containing their WIPs and published stories as well. If you read my blog both on Tuesday and Wednesday, you've gotten a few bits from one of Bina's story as well as Bina & Tabitha's first date. This is an upcoming scene that I've only gotten this far- the afternoon after their date, they agree to meet and brainstorm for a polyamory call. Their names shown in bold are showing their text comments.

---


Okay, we're working now. I can really shift gears. Bina Syntha: "That's good. Any thoughts on how we we want to arrange this? Like who starts?"

Tabitha Loving: "Shona [it might need explained why Tabitha's is using this Hindi endearment meaning gold], why don't you start? Better question: beyond who starts, do we want to approach this round robin style or write whole sections?"

Oh, she called me Shona! She's been reading. I am totally falling in love! Bina Syntha: "Wanna try brainstorming and then we'll round robin in chat? I could collect it into a document as we go."

Tabitha Loving: "I like that idea! So do we want to write a triad? A quad? A quint?"

Bina created another word processor document, saved it as "poly-Bina and Tabitha," and glanced at her nearly empty box of candies. "Time to buy more," she muttered. She placed her fingers on the home row and pondered her answer.

Bina Syntha: "I like the triad idea, especially since you have experience with it with your Ara's."

Tabitha Loving: "A triad works. I'd like to propose two cis women and a trans and/or genderqueer person."

Bina Syntha: "That sounds good. I think we need to consider names and where they live besides."

Tabitha Loving: "How about Tisha and Victory for our girls? Then wait on the non-binary character until they let one of us know? For location, I suggest the Midwest so it's still familiar to us, but placed in a large city, like maybe Ferndale, Michigan? Des Moines? Milwaukee?

Bina Syntha: "Actually I'd suggest Ann Arbor, Michigan because it seems they have a super active polyamory support group there. I like the idea of our triad living somewhere they'd be comfortable."

Tabitha Loving: "Good point and I agree. I think there's going to be a bunch of they live in a totally backward place stories. We will have something different and something that forces creativity as I'm not sure either of us have either lived somewhere we truly felt comfortable."

Bina swallowed hard at the truth of Tabitha's statement.

#Taboo2sday Porn or non-porn?

Take a risk and try something a little taboo with me? D I promise you'll find delights and scares depending on how adventurous you are


I've shared a few things from my Nano-novel this month so far ("Tabitha and Bina in Love": Two erotic romance authors meet online, fall in love, and engage in a long distance relationship.) The layers of possible taboo in this story are quite a few- given not only am I writing Tabitha and Bina's romance (a white woman and an Indian woman), but I'm also writing their WIPs and published books (including a lesbian polytriad, a genderqueer story, and an erotica looking at ableism, just to name a few). But you shouldn't have sex on a first date, even if you're an erotic fiction writer :D And what to Bina and Tabitha get talking about? The snippet starts with Bina speaking- remember that she lives way up north in Wisconsin.

---

I looked up the statistics of this city and I wonder why I stay. I mean, if I could leave, but I'm not even sure it's a could. What's the last movie you enjoyed?"

Tabitha smiled, feeling her eyelids flutter with her emotional disturbance at the quick subject change. "Porn or non-porn?"

"Do you enjoy full porn movies, not just snippets on line?" Bina took a long drink, as if trying to force Tabitha to answer.


"I'm just being silly. So the last movie was Fried Green Tomatoes because it was playing on a cable channel. As for porn, I'm a collector of the different.

Tommy, Simon, & Vala, sex and paddling, and an update

As a treat, I'm going to an impromptu bit of Vala watching Simon and Tommy fuck before she ends up joining in. Afterward you'll see the blurb and buy links for "Out of the Night: Book One" of my Vala's Story serial, where Vala comes home with The Queen and trades her birth name of Mearr for the beautiful Vala and joins his family.

-----

Tommy whimpered at Simon's lips moving over his chest. "Love," he gasped as the kisses moved lower.

"You can't be that desperate yet," Simon taunted.

"I'm always desperate when both you and The Queen deny me," Tommy whined.

"But it's so fun to watch you suffer and wait for permission to come. Did you decide it would be bad to see if Vala would enjoy fucking you... just in case we ended up saying you couldn't come?"

Vala perked up at the mention of her.

"I... um..." Tommy writhed against the bed in response to Simon's caressing his inner thighs. "Please!"

Simon grabbed Tommy's ankles and pulled him up into diaper position. "Vala, I know you're only pretending to read. Please bring me that paddle laying on the coffee table by you."

"Yes, Simon." Vala trembled as she picked up the light plastic paddle, its black surface reflecting the candle light. She chewed on her bottom lip as she crossed the living space to The Queen's bed.

Simon smirked at Vala. "Will it make it easier for you when The Queen decides he's ready to collar you and you're a submissive responding to my order?"

"I don't know." Vala locked her legs when Simon brought the paddle down hard on Tommy's asscheeks, the skin pulled tight in his current position.

"Yes, thanks," Tommy moaned before Simon gifted him with the next smack. "Harder, please."

"Wouldn't you like to tease him while I paddle him? His poor cock not being given any attention?" Simon included his head toward Tommy's rapidly coloring skin.

Vala crawled on the bed on the other side of Tommy from where Simon knelt. She hazarded a glance at his face.

"Please touch me," Tommy begged.

Vala looked to Simon just in time to see him start with rapid blows, the paddle moving up and down Tommy's shaking body from the top of his asscheeks to his thighs. She took a hold of the cock and started stroking.

"Yes!" Tommy cried out.

"No coming yet, boy," Simon warned. "Vala, what would Tommy find if he put his fingers between your legs?"

"That watching you enjoy him has me really turned on."

Simon grinned. "Tommy, see if Vala is right."

And with that, I stop at my most teasing point and invite you to enjoy "Out of the Night: Book One" of my Vala's Story serial where you'll get to enjoy more sex, more BDSM, and more romance. Just not hetero-normative or mono-normative or greeting card- that's not my point of view :D.



"Out of the Night: Book One" of Vala's Story blurb:
Restless and world-weary, Mearr isn't about to admit she needs anyone's help, even this gorgeous man who has taken her into his home. Well one of his homes and part of this huge family she's heard about but not met all of. She's young, looks young, and knows it but at least she's legal now so she can pick a new name to go with her new life...

The Queen knows he wants Mearr bad, ever since the first time he saw her in the window of the coffeehouse. He has his plan, but even a Dominant's plans don't always survive the unpredictability of the future. He struggles to figure out this temperamental woman he's brought home, how best to help her. Then he takes her to his mansion...

They wait patiently for The Queen to bring Mearr home. Well to the home they've been redecorating for Him and for the hopes that she'll become part of their family and be trained to please Him. Simon and Tommy have seen her, of course, being The Queen's right and left hands; they say she'll be a perfect addition...

Please come along with Joelle on this journey, shared with the readers in serial fashion. A multitude of "Happily-ever-afters" are waiting with the completion of book 9.

Author's Note: This novel is meant for open-minded adults. Activities described include a wide range of BDSM and sexual activities, some of which are male/male, male/female, consensual slavery, oral/anal/vaginal intercourse, bondage. The story also covers some sensitive topics in characters' backstories, such as drug abuse.

#SRR Ownership is the key for me, in writing & fiction, not humiliation

I realized this morning,  looking at the title, that I should add "in real life too"- since I do so much writing of what happens in my life, I forgot to put that in my title :D.

I'm glad to Spanking Romance Reviews for sponsoring this discussion; it feels weird to have no one to thank for hosting though as I'm the one hosting this month. Never expected that to happen :D So for this different (for me) SRR, I'm going to share the intro and my questions- I'm silly proud of them, you see.

Ownership versus Humiliation. The focus differs for many people- as shown in the conversations around "Anal Punishment- Hot? or Not?" last month- of whether any given activity is engaged in as an act of ownership or humiliation. While Aubrey Cara, who commented that I'd hit on a possible topic, divided her thoughts into BDSM writers and DD/spanking writers, I think the divisions aren't quite that neat or distinct.

* How do you understand the difference between an ownership- or a humiliation-focus in writing and/or in real life?
* If you live some level of DD, BDSM, include spanking in your relationship- do your practices focus more on ownership or humiliation?
* When you're reading spanking fiction, do you have a preference for either of these focuses? Or does it even matter to you?
* And of course, feel free to add your own comments and questions- after all, I come to this conversation as a reader of DD/spanking fiction, but an author of BDSM fiction.

The first thing I want to say, before getting into the questions, is that I don't think it has to be a "versus" between ownership and humiliation, but I think that happens in spanking fiction (more so than IRL, whether a relationship has a BDSM, a DD, or spanking focus). Sadly I can't think of any specific books where this plays out; I can only think of my own writing, where often it seems my ownership emphasis makes my writing feel differently than many of my friends' books and snippets that I read. Interestingly as I work on my Nanowrimo novel for the year, my one main character who is a "spanking author," I find in her WIP that I'm using a bunch of humiliating language- "naughty girl" and "panties" and "at your ankles." It feels weird, I must say. Somehow I think that if I was actually writing out her novels, I'd find the percentage of "humiliating language" to be quite low. However a good portion of her writing that I'm doing is "for blog hop" type posts.

Now I see that I've started answering my first question. To me, it is a lot about word choice, especially IRL. With my Master and I, we just don't use much humiliation language or activity; heck, I'd beg Him to engage in enema domination if enemas weren't a hard limit for Him. However- and this is part of where Aubrey suggested this is as a topic- in my fantasies, enemas aren't about humiliation, but ownership. Like with the link I shared with Katherine Deane when I was suggesting this topic, I see care and ownership. In the short, The Queen gives Abrecan an enema to show how he cares for Abrecan as his slave. Later in Vala's Story, there's a moment around enemas and golden showers that The Queen says to Vala, there is no part of you that I cannot possess because I own you. Gives me delicious shivers, even though I'm not entirely sure that's his word choice, but I'm not going into Vala's Story during Nanowrimo to look :D.

When it comes to humiliation IRL, I've already explained that my Master and I don't use it. Our focus is "Joelle is my slave so I can fuck her whenever." Although for Shaman, if I'm really not into sex or BDSM, it quickly becomes a "yeah, I can go watch some porn instead." I need to go a step further here though with some thoughts of mine that I haven't bothered Shaman with- the poor Man, I spend way more time pondering things than probably necessary. For me, I see too much humiliation (especially in fiction) as being used as a justification for enjoying sexuality. As a sex-positive person I struggle to accept that logic as being a good thing. One day Shaman was joking about "you want punishment" and I corrected Him, saying, "No, Master, I don't want punishment, I want You to spank me because it feels good to me." No judgment meant for people who enjoy a humiliation or a punishment dynamic, but considering mainstream sexuality in the US, I find accepting that I want sex or BDSM activity is more transgressive, positive. All that said, I don't think erotic humiliation is necessarily bad- just not something I'm into.

In reading, too much use of humiliation will often prevent me from reading a snippet or book. The crazy thing- to me at least- is that corner time in spanking fiction too often comes off (in word choice of the author) as "supposed to be humiliating" and that gets a squick for me. Although I have found Rayanna Jamison's use of corner time in her polygamy spanking series "Love Multiplied" as something I enjoy; I can't really say why her writing of corner time doesn't squick me.

This is a separate topic (and I know SRR has approached it before) but the whole thing of fantasy/reality in erotic fiction. I know for me, I usually prefer more reality especially when the reality MATCHES mine- being a queer, kinky, poly woman, I see all too little of myself in erotic romance and the focus of so many stories on humiliation only seems to make it feel even less representative to me.

So I'm always on the hunt for books that are more about ownership than humiliation, especially in DD stories, where I find the accepted ownership delicious. I also give this challenge to my authors friends- more male/male, female/female, genderqueer characters mixed in couples and trios in spanking/DD fiction. and with that, I bow out to go get a "good girl" spanking from my Master and horrify Him with my asking :D.

#WIPiTuP What does Tabitha's drunken message get her from Bina?

Sharing WIPs (works in progress) can be so very fun! On this lovely blog hop, enjoy a bunch of authors sharing excerpts of what they're working on- get ready to add some great books to your TBR, once the author publishes :) Although occasionally you may find an author sharing a published work. Give 'em a break- these may just be roughly edited- but please do leave a comment! We authors like to know we're going in a good direction.


So before anyone complains (I'm watching you, Melody Parks :D ) that I didn't share any of Yuri and Sum having sex, go read the snippet I shared for Taboo Tuesday. However this week I decided I wanted to share not from one of Tabitha or Bina's WIPs, but from their own romance. Tabitha decides to go to a straight bar and has a bad time. I'm starting from the message (UPDATE, UPDATE, I got it wrong the first time, but now it's correct :D) Tabitha sent Bina on Facebook (at least I'm saying Facebook rather than "social media" for ease as I'm writing, but I'm not sure what a publisher will think of that.) I was so glad to write this scene. I'm getting to the point of "why aren't they together yet?" and I found I was using some timetable of "how fast relationships go" that really have no baring on the story I'm writing :D

-----

Apologizing at the beginning of this for my drunken message, but before I can talk myself out of this, I'm writing. Tonight I chose to go to a straight bar rather than be lonely, rather than spending the time online with a writing friend, maybe you? I find I like you a lot. Look at your profile pic. Wonder if it's really you. Wonder if you might be interested in someone, in me. I was sitting at the bar drinking my appletini- I rarely drink- wondering if you'd consider a LDR and then I was feeling all sappy. But I realized, even if it's a LDR, I'd rather be with you than sleep with some random person from the bar.


Tabitha logged off the site and hurried to her bed before she could write anything worse. Without bothering to undress, she crawled under her cream colored comforter and passed out.

--
Head pounding, Tabitha pushed her face into her pillow and prayed to go back to sleep. After a fruitless moment of such thought, she stumbled out of her bed and to her kitchen. She tossed a pod into her coffeemaker, loaded it with water, and pushed the start button. While the coffee brewed, she grabbed a glass, filled it with cold water, and grabbed an aspirin.

She moved to her table to take the painkiller and drink her water. She glanced at Lisa, who was curled up in her cat bed.

"So I was drunk enough that you avoided me last night?"

Lisa [her cat] continued cleaning her front paws, taking the moment to pull them over her head.
"And we're ignoring me today." Tabitha slapped her hand over her mouth. "Goddess, I sent Bina that crazy message! Why couldn't I have adopted a big dog that would have tripped me on the way to my office?"

Lisa hissed at Tabitha and ran out of the room.

Tabitha started to laugh, although her humor quickly fled when the noise increased the ache inside her head. She stumbled toward her counter. Bread toasting. Butter out. She grabbed a cup for her coffee. Without a sense of time, she fed herself the buttered toast and fixed her coffee. Clutching her mug in both hands, she made her way to her office. She placed the cola on another coaster before easing her coffee onto the closer one.

A swirl of cat fur announced Lisa settling into her bed in Tabitha's office.

Tabitha carefully leaned over to pet Lisa's head.

"At least I didn't send Bina any embarrassing pictures." She loaded her blog and then opened another tab for Facebook. She logged in. She whipped her suddenly sweaty palms across her jeans. "Get it together, this isn't high school," she scolded herself. She dragged her teeth over her bottom lip to see the glowing red number over her messages. With shaking fingers, she clicked as she pondered Bina's response.

-----

Now I admit to being a tease here by not including Bina's response... but I'm writing an erotic romance with an HEA here! :D What do you think Bina's response is?

#Taboo2sday Her cock in their hole #anal #genderqueer

Take a risk and try something a little taboo with me? D I promise you'll find delights and scares depending on how adventurous you are



I shared the first part of Sum and Yuri meeting (this is a short story from one of the erotic romance authors in my Nano-novel) for WIP it up Wednesday last week. For this Taboo Tuesday, I wanted to share a snippet of the sex between Yuri and Sum.

Sum had a bad Thanksgiving, having chosen it as the time to come out about being genderqueer to their parents and finding themselves disowned. Yuri, from an accepting family, is trying to make the overnight delay thanks to airplane issues better for Sum.

-----

"While you were getting the condom, I lubed my ass for you." Sum grinned. "Your lovely cock should slide right into me."

Yuri straddled Sum's thighs. She took her cock in her right hand, the lube from the condom's package making her hand glide up and down. She glanced at their hole and moaned at the glimmering moisture. Before common sense could leave her, she guided the tip into Sum's begging hole.

"Yes," Sum hissed as the penetration slowly continued.

Publisher Spotlight: LSF Publications #spanking #MF #FF #FM #BDSM


I have to say right off that I appreciate LSF's separate "lesbian" and "F/F" book sections; too many (authors, readers, retail sites) act as if the two are synonymous when they aren't always. I appreciate their about page as well: they're able to accept dollars and pounds sterling they say (although I admit this US girl doesn't quite know what pounds sterling are). They focus on spanking ebooks of quite a few flavors. Of course you can buy the books on Amazon, but you can also buy them securely (and in multiple formats directly from LSF). This is yet another place I have in my mind as "I may submit something there some day," but haven't as of yet.

And here are some example books that they've published.

Lucy Appleby's "The Postmistress and the Gardener"- I loved this book! You can read my 5 star review of this book there. If you want a really different femdom book, well then Lucy's book is for you too. I find too many femdoms too formulaic, too much as if they stepped out of a bad porn movie. This does not describe Lucy's book :) .

"Cinderfella" by Rue Chapman. I was intrigued to find this story in the "shorts" section and hope next time my Master's gives me allowance (yes, I am a lifestyle submissive :D ), I hope to pick up this intriguing story for just 99 cents.

"Spanking Romance Box Set of 4" by Leigh Smith. I wanted to share Leigh's set of 4 stories for $8.99. Having read snippets of her work on Saturday Spankings, I can comment on the delicious and emotional romances she writes.

"A Brush of Violet"- hot spanking fiction by Corinne Alexander for the Corbin's Bend series

I decided it was better to host Corinne with her wonderful new book- I was so excited when she started sharing snippets and the cover art on her blog (an African American couple!!!!)- than post what might be a depressing Nano update (if things haven't started going better for me just yet.)
So for your enjoyment- "A Brush of Violet" by Corinne Alexander



He led her over to the clubhouse to the room he had mentioned the day before, the one that needed a special key to enter.

He led her into the dimly lit room. The first thing she noticed was that the soundproof padding she was expecting to see on the walls was completely concealed behind tasteful paneling. The room was warm and inviting, yet there was a distinct air of being strictly serviceable too. Along one side of the room sat several chairs that looked like might be for observers as there were about four in a row. There was also a straight back chair with no arms toward the center of the room and an arm chair toward the wall. A couch sat against a far wall.

However, what caught her attention was an apparatus in the right hand corner of the room. It was a bench of sorts. The end facing toward the room was just slightly lower than waist high. There was a padded bench that laid flat and then angled down toward the floor. There were cuffs around the legs of the front part of the bench and at the end of the bench along a bar.

Charles made his way toward a closet on the end of the room that the bench was on. The sight that beheld her as he opened the closet door made her gasp. There hanging on the wall behind the door was an array of every implement that she could imagine awaiting a naughty bottom to be applied to.

There were floggers, belts, straps, paddles, and canes. They were in every shape, size, and type of spanking implement that there was. Violet shuddered in anticipation as she fingered a long supple strap made of leather. There was something about leather that made her knees go weak, but it was the jingle of the belt as it was unbuckled, the whir of air as it slid through its loops, and the crack of the leather against bare flesh that always got her. There was something deliciously alpha about a man who wielded a belt.

Synopsis

High powered business woman, Violet Walker, has long left her artistic days behind. That is until her best friend, Everleigh Harris, invites her to Corbin's Bend for an art festival. What Everleigh doesn't know is that Violet hasn't been able to paint a single brush stroke since turning her back on her submissive desires and spanking needs in college. When she meets charismatic and drop dead gorgeous Charles her world is turned completely upside down. Will Violet, overworked, burnt out, and in denial of her deepest wants and desires, be able to surrender when love knocks on her door?   

Charles Robinson, President of the discipline Board in Corbin’s Bend and longtime resident, adores the community he lives in and the freedom it provides for all who live there. Raised in a traditional family; love and discipline are a way of life for him. There’s nothing he wants more than a marriage just like his parents where spanking and romance go hand in hand, even if that means holding out for true love. Is Violet just the kind of woman he’s looking for?

Will Violet risk the life she’s built for herself in blood, sweat, and tears for the undeniable connection she has with Charles, the utter bliss and contentment she feels when she’s over his lap? Can Charles convince Violet she really can have it all? Will this trip be just what she needs to rekindle all that she has lost since joining the corporate world?

#SatSpanks The flowers Bina gives Tabitha #FF #romance #cyber



8 or so sentences from writers who love to spank or be spanked. Please enjoy my snippet and then move onto the other hoppers- their links are at the bottom of this post.



So I came across a link on Facebook today and it gave me an idea for Bina and Tabitha- remember, my main characters in my Nano-novel this year? Not either of their characters :D. "11 Things that are supposed to happen on real dates but don't anymore." Well this article is only about male/female pairings that live close enough to date offline. :D I needed to take and twist this into Bina and Tabitha's female/female pairing in a long distance relationship. This week I'm sharing Bina's description of the flowers she's giving Tabitha; next week, I'm hoping to have a snippet of the women talking about spanking- Tabitha writes spanking romance and Bina sometimes writes BDSM, so I think eventually they need to talk about spanking.

I hope you aren't allergic to flowers. When I saw this arrangement with the calico cat vase and two lavender roses, I just had to buy it for you. I wondered how this cat's markings compare to your Lisa's fur. I love the caramel and black on the head and back, then all that white down the chest and the underbelly. I laugh to imagine what this cat's whiskers feel like and that cute little pink nose. I thought two roses was a lovely touch; I hope you do as well. I loved the lavender roses from the first moment I saw them, their delicate silvery purple color so startling. Then to see the lavender flowers in the cat vase? The caramel looked even more like candy then and I thought of how sweet it would be to spend time on a date with you.


"Learning to Be Little Again" Meredith O'Reilly visits with her new ageplay romance release

A little Thanks!
Hi Joelle! I just wanted to say thank you so much for being so kind to host me on your blog. I really appreciate it! This story holds a special place in my heart because it tells people that at the end of the day, they can act however they want and they shouldn’t be ashamed or afraid of it. Anyway, thank you again for having me over!  


Blurb

Twenty four year old, Juliana once loved being a little, until the cruelty of the man she had called daddy broke her heart and she decided to never age play again. But when she fails to take care of herself and becomes ill, a worried friend brings her to Dr. Robert O’Connor, claiming that he will understand what she needs. Juliana is embarrassed and nervous, but to her surprise, Robert gives her a teddy bear and tells her a fairy tale to help her relax. Though the exam is intimate and thorough, Juliana feels safe the whole time and hopes afterwards that she’ll see more of the handsome doctor.

From the moment Robert heard about Juliana’s past, he wanted nothing more than to take away her pain and make sure she never has to worry about anyone hurting her again. He is thrilled when he asks her out and she shyly agrees. Though Juliana claims she doesn’t want to be a little anymore, he longs to prove to her that age play with him is nothing to fear. Robert is a patient man, and before long Juliana is calling him “daddy”, playing with her dolls, and coloring. He delights in taking care of her every need, dressing her in footie pajamas, and brushing her hair. Even when Juliana is disobedient and Robert has to put his baby girl over his knee and spank her bare bottom, it is always followed by plenty of loving hugs and cuddles.

Soon Juliana is eating more and sleeping better, and feels healthier than she has in a long time. But when the man who once abused her skips bail and threatens to hurt her if she continues to see her new daddy, she becomes terrified.

Snippet (This is the first time that Juliana and Robert meet)

I was so nervous as I entered my office. Today was Juliana’s appointment. I really wanted her to like me and feel comfortable with me, and I couldn’t get the last time I saw her out of my head.
It had happened a few weeks ago. Mark had called me to tell me about an age play munch he was going to with the woman who’d been living with him. He asked me to go too, as he thought his roommate and I would hit it off. A munch was just a place for like-minded people to get together and talk about the lifestyle they participated in, in a safe setting, and I’d only been to them a couple of times in the past. Since I hadn’t had a little in a long time, I saw no point in going, but not wanting to be rude, I’d agreed, thinking I’d spend a few hours at the munch mingling.

I had never been so wrong in my entire life. I was talking to Jackson and Meghan, two parents I’d just met, when I saw Mark enter with the most beautiful girl in the world. Her curly black hair that ran down her shoulders and her cute little features had my cock as hard as a rock, and the instinct to wrap her up and protect her was overwhelming. I was about to go over and talk to them when I noticed her face. She looked terrified. Pausing, I sat down again, as Jackson’s little girl, Samantha, went up to greet the woman.

They talked for a couple of minutes and then Samantha got her to come and sit at our table. I watched as Meghan’s little Joey went to get her some food while Samantha tried to keep her calm.
After she settled down a little, I’d tried to talk to her, but for the most part, besides nodding her head a couple of times, she ignored me. At the end of the night, I finally got her to give me her cell phone number. As I was walking out of the restaurant, I just knew she was the one for me.

"The Bishop's First Bride: Love Multiplied Book 3"- yay! I have Rayanna Jamison visiting again

Yes, Rayanna has done it again! Her third book in the Love Multiplied polygamist spanking series. Please enjoy the excerpt that she's sharing with us!


Excerpt:  

Luke stood, and pulled her up with him. He drew her into his arms, and kissed her head. He held her for a while, until she was ready to continue. He was good at gaging her signals.

“Okay, Rosa, over there in the corner, you can leave the robe. You won’t be needing it.” 

She obeyed, but she had never felt so exposed. Standing naked in the corner, as if on display for her husband, was nearly too much for her. She felt ashamed, but she found that she also felt strangely aroused. There was something almost intoxicating in knowing that she was completely exposed only to him, and that he could see her most private of places. Soon, he would call her to him, and she would lay over his lap, in her nakedness while he spanked her for her many indiscretions. She knew from past experience that she would be able to feel his erection grow as he punished her bare bottom. She could feel her mound grow wet with her arousal, and her cheeks grew flushed with embarrassment. She hoped he let her out of the corner soon. If she stood here much longer, she feared she would drip her juices all over the carpet. How could this be happening? What was wrong with her that she was getting so turned on from standing nude in the corner knowing she had a spanking coming? I need to get my head examined, she thought to herself. Even as she thought it, she couldn’t help herself. Her hand reached from behind her back to touch herself. 

“Rosa!” Luke called her name, and she jumped, startled and mortified. Had he seen her? Had he known what she was about to do?

If he had, his face bore no evidence of it, as he motioned her over to him. With knees trembling more from excitement than fear, she made her way over to stand in front of him, more aware of her nakedness than ever before.

Blurb:
Rosa Collins was only sixteen when she received a vision telling her of her future husband. Knowing that her husband would be Lucas, the Bishop's son, and future Bishop of Green Valley, both thrilled and terrified her. They were a match made in heaven, she knew, perfect for each other.

But becoming the Bishop's Wife is harder than Rosa anticipated. She struggles to transform herself into the perfect Bishop's Wife that her husband needs.

Lucas misses the real Rosa. Somewhere between getting married, and becoming the future Bishop's wife, his beloved wife has lost part of herself. Lucas knows that a good, old fashioned spanking is exactly what Rosa needs to help her find balance in her unrealistic expectations of what the perfect wife should be. But, try as he might, that balance doesn't come easily for Rosa, and it certainly didn't help that her high school nemesis kept popping up and making trouble.
Will Lucas help her realize that all he wants is for his wife to be happy? Can Rosa pull herself together enough to become the Bishop's First Wife?

#WIPiTuP Experiencing life and attraction outside the gender binary

Sharing WIPs (works in progress) can be so very fun! On this lovely blog hop, enjoy a bunch of authors sharing excerpts of what they're working on- get ready to add some great books to your TBR, once the author publishes :) Although occasionally you may find an author sharing a published work. Give 'em a break- these may just be roughly edited- but please do leave a comment! We authors like to know we're going in a good direction.





Today I'm sharing the first longer piece from my Nano-novel. I've shared bits in my Nanowrimo Sunday updates, plan to share a bit for next Taboo Tuesday. I may have lost my mind :D It seems when I'm talking about this novel, I outline 3 places I *could* be working: the main story, whatever story Tabitha is working on, whatever story Bina is working on. I'm going to share with you a bit of a short story Bina is working on here. She writes erotic short stories. So you get the project's title, her brainstorming for it, and the beginning of the story.

Bina's characters are named Yuri and Sum.

"Genderqueer around the holidays"

(Bina's brainstorm) Sum- bad Thanksgiving. Yuri- free-thinking family. They meet during a layover that extends to an overnight stay in a hotel. After a passionate night, they exchange emails and promises to be in touch once they get home.
---

The two people stood in front of the arrivals and departures board.

"Delayed," the person with the short black hair grumbled.

"Yeah, time to go wait in line to find out how bad it'll be," Yuri, long green hair still neatly in the braid Mama Rose had fixed that morning, replied.

They walked together to the ticket counter.

"Hello there. Do you have any prediction of how late Flight 501 will be delayed?" Yuri asked the blond ticket agent, who almost looked like a cheerleader, but for a worn expression.

The stress showed in the agent's eyes. "I'm very sorry to say that the flight has had to be rescheduled to tomorrow at noon. If you can show me your ticket, I can set you up in a room in our hotel."

"Oh that is frustrating." Yuri glanced at the agent's name tag. "Well Debbie, I hope for you that not too many people are angry about this. Is it possible to get a double room for my friend and I?" She handed her ticket to ticket agent.

"Can I see... um... his ticket?" Debbie's discomfort became clearer on her face when the spiky haired individual stepped forward.

A smooth tenor voice came out of the ebony face, "Here's my ticket. Thanks."

Debbie typed for a moment. "I have you both in room 108. Please enjoy complementary room service on us." She passed Yuri a plastic room key.

"Thanks again. Will our luggage be moved to this rescheduled plane tomorrow or do we need to collect it from baggage claim ourselves?"

"You're good." Debbie smiled brightly a moment. "Oh and here's a gift certificate to use at the gift shop to make up for any needs like toothbrushes that you need tonight."

"Thanks so much," the ebony smooth-voiced person said and collected the gift certificates.

As they moved away from the ticket counter, Yuri turned to her new friend. "My name is Yuri. I suggest that we go see about what they have in the nearest gift shop. I have most everything I could need for tonight in my bag, except a nightgown."

"I'm Sum." They looked at their bag. "I find myself far less prepared than that. Thanksgiving didn't go so well for me this year."

"I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully room service will make up for it."

Sum threw back their head in laughter. "Maybe. Although I'd prefer a family that wouldn't have issues with a hair style similar to yours."

"May I ask your preferred pronoun before we go much further here? Somehow I'm guessing that the gender binary is part of why your holiday was anything but happy."

"They and them." Sum frowned. "My mother freaked at my chosen first name. My father told me never to come back. Grandma pretended to have a heart attack."

Yuri blinked away the moisture collecting in her eyes. "May I give you a hug?"

Sum finally smiled. "Sure."

Yuri put down her carry-all and turned to Sum. She wrapped her short arms around their big waist and squeezed as she could. She stayed in the moment until Sum relaxed into the hug. She pulled back to whisper, "I think Sum is a very pretty and wonderful unique name."

"Thanks." Sum coughed as if to cover a sob. "Let's go see this store before we make a scene."


Yuri giggled. "Sure."

#Taboo2sday How long should sex last?

Take a risk and try something a little taboo with me? D I promise you'll find delights and scares depending on how adventurous you are



Oh the fun of planning ahead because of Nanowrimo :D I decided this week to share a snippet from my Samhaine/Winternights/Halloween short story that I shared on my blog. In Vala's Story, a handful of people including The Queen religously are pagans of some description. However it's common enough in pagan beliefs that sexuality and the sacred aren't separate as completely in many types of Christianity. So sex as part of the celebrations made sense. However, The Queen's comment is dealing with a different taboo than sex and religion.

---

The Queen pulled some of his comforter over them. "That was over all too quick."

Tommy tilted his head to look at The Queen's face. "But my Queen, articles say that the marathon sex in porns isn't very realistic and most guys come within five or so minutes."

The Queen chuckled. "Trying to make me feel even better? What about you?"

"No fair, two questions, my Queen." Tommy grinned.

Publisher Spotlight- Loose ID

So with my premiere of these posts last week with Blushing Books, I haven't been published by Loose ID either... although I was amused by a few exchanged emails when I contacted them to make sure that rimjobs are okay (they have the usual "no bodily fluids" in their submission rules).


First off, I have to say that I'm impressed by the amount and diversity of the sub-genre choices in their categories; I do so hope that when things change in my finances and I'm able to buy more books that I remember to go to Loose ID's website. I mean :D they have steampunk erotic fiction! They also have this newer category that I don't quite understand what's in it- new adult. But yes, whatever erotic fiction you want, there's a good chance you'll find it there.

They hold daily specials, sell gift certificates, and have a VIP buyer's club.

I have tons of friends who've been published here too... this week (since Nanowrimo hasn't screwed up my brain last much yet :D) I'm going to share the links specifically to a few of their books

"31 Flavors of Kink" by Cari Silverwood and Leia Shaw

"Breeder" by Cara Bristol. I absolutely adored this book and can't wait to read "Terran" and "Warrior" (books 2 and 3 in this sci-fi spanking trilogy of hers).

Not written by a friend- yet, I can always hope- but I was happy to find 2 intersex stories in their LGBTTQ section and here's one of them- "Ill Met in Tanivar: A Sinjin and Asamir Adventure" by Reyna Todd.

I remember signing up for an account on their site- I like buying directly from the publisher's site when possible- I need to spend some time with my wish list, I think :D

#SatSpanks Panties and ankles and heart-shaped buttocks :D

8 or so sentences from writers who love to spank or be spanked. Please enjoy my snippet and then move onto the other hoppers- their links are at the bottom of this post.



So I'm sharing a hot spanking snippet from my nano-novel; this is the first spanking I managed :D. But with the craziness of the premise (Bina and Tabitha- two erotica romance authors- meet online, fall in love, and engage in a long distance relationship), I've been engaged in insane amounts of meta-story telling. In this snippet, Bina is reading Tabitha's novel that's being shown in my nano-novel in italics. Tabitha's story is about Tara, Cara, and Sara, 3 women in meet at a woman-loving women's group, this novel being the first in a planned trilogy.

"Lovely ass." Tara brushed her thumbs over Sara's heart shaped ass. She cupped one asscheek. "I think you need punished for teasing me with this pretty ass." Cupping hand became a slapping one as Tara spanked Sara until the woman whimpered with growing arousal. "How do you like your panties around your ankles, naughty girl?"

Sara turned her head to one side. "I like it as much as you like it."

Vala's lessons, or how The Queen is teaching Vala



In an amusing twist, as I was planning this post in my head, I was looking in "The Beginning of Knowledge: Book Four" for a lesson to snippet from for #WIPitUp blog hop. Then in the snippet from "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" that I shared in the Seductive Studs and Sirens blog hop the day after "Gates"s release was one of The Queen and Iona discussing Vala's training, even as Iona's fist was still nestled within Vala's orgasming body. Further, I searched by mind (and past blog posts) because I was sure that I'd talked about one of the points of my Vala's Story serial is Vala's training to be the slave The Queen wants her to be- it was pure luck that I thought to look through my tags one last time and noticed "BDSM training" where the post was one of four.

From that post, I'm going to share the lesson plan for week 1- began in "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" and completed in the upcoming release "Skipping Down the Primrose Path: Book Three" (currently with my BR).

Week 1:
Collaring ceremony; Etiquette: titles, towards other Doms & subs, proper demeanor; Philosophical discussion of obedience

Of course, if you've read "Out of the Night: Book One," you know that a very serious misbehavior on Abrecan's part caused The Queen to move Vala's collaring ceremony to the Sunday on which he brought her to his mansion; he needed the constancy of her collaring ceremony to drive away some negative emotions he was feeling. So he is left with the rest of his plan for the week and a little more time to enjoy himself with Vala around her training. In a file on my computer, I have all the weeks of Vala's training planned out, all the way until the end of the Vala's Story serial.

One of the many lines of "readers not understanding my plans" that has caused me frustration is the fact of Vala's training. Vala IS in training, as I vented in that other post. While The Queen most definitely structures his world to be a medium protocol BDSM world, it has a structure to it that many BDSM erotic romances are missing. There is no vanilla person who has no clue and slowly needs introduced to BDSM. There is no man/woman couple where he's known he was a dominant for a long time and is working to help her find her submissive nature so she'll fall deeply in love with him and submit to him. Vala has seen BDSM interactions, even before coming to live in The Queen's mansion. What she needs is to learn first hand as he wants her to learn. Importantly to the scope of the serial, he has a lot he wants her to learn.

I considered what scenes from the above lessons to share; true enough, "philosophical discussion of obedience" is in "Skipping Down the Primrose Path: Book Three" so you'll have to wait for that. It was hard- no pun intended lol- but while lessons are often in time set aside for them, it's common for flirting, romantic moments, life moments to happen before during, and after them. So a lesson in the Opium den about proper demeanor gives us this...

From "Gates of the Garden: Book Two" Copyright Joelle Casteel 2014.

"But the lesson." The Queen pulled Adan up to kneeling by her hair; the three girls moaned. He pulled on her nipples through the shirt until she lifted her shoulders. "Now to see if you have any panties on underneath this shirt." He used her hands to lift and then hold the shirt at her hips. "No panties."

"Just a little tease, my Queen," Prisca murmured.

"Just a little." The Queen laughed. He shoved Adan's knees wide apart with his hands. "Fold your hands against your neck."

Shuddering softly, Adan lifted her hands and buried them under her hair, against her neck.

"Normally, I do not put my slaves into position when they should be kneeling up." The Queen pressed his index finger against Vala's lips. "I know you have seen slaves regularly in this position."

Vala nodded against The Queen's finger.

"Before we continue, you should be in your posture collar."

"Yes, my Queen." Best not to ponder when or how he got my collar in his possession, but why is that stupid thing turning me on? She wrapped her hair around her hand and lifted it.

"Good girl." The Queen kissed Vala's neck just before wrapping the thick leather collar around it.

 "Are you starting to love this collar yet?"

"Yes, my Queen." Vala blinked her eyes, the intensity of The Queen's gaze tormenting her. "If it pleases you, my Queen."

"Good girl." The Queen sat beside the bed, his legs crossed in front of him. "So kneel up."
Already part way there, my Queen. Vala lifted her ass off her calves and spread her knees apart until she felt the strain in her hips. She steadily looked into The Queen's eyes as she slipped her hands underneath her hair and folded them against her collar, the warm leather strangely comforting.

The Queen studied Vala in silence, letting the time slip away as he took in her shaking legs. "Good. So this is kneeling up, my lovely baby." He squeezed her breasts in his large hands until she moaned. "Other than submissive pose, this is also a good position to assume when you have not been ordered to anything specific."

"Yes, my Queen," Vala whimpered.

The Queen pulled Vala's g-string to her knees. His fingers explored her, one moving into her cunt as his thumb moved over her clit. "Did the way I put Adan into this position turn you on?"

"Yes, my Queen." Vala's hips made the smallest movements against The Queen's hand.

"What about the position itself?" The Queen slipped a second finger into Vala's cunt. "I do like the look of your legs, the way your thighs shake with tension, in this position."

"Yes, it turns me on, to be kneeling this way in front of you, my Queen."


BLURB:

Vala is very comfortable in her new life, her new name. She's hopelessly in love, with The Queen, with Iona, with life. She's learning about BDSM and knows The Queen has many surprises, lessons planned for her. She's looking forward to ceremony day...

The Queen considers, stresses, ponders. Sometimes he goes to Simon for help, especially since Tommy messed up so bad. He's considering things in the long term as he watches Vala blossom into what he wants her to be...

Things are settling down and they aren't for the rest of the stable. Tommy did so mess things up, but at least there's Vala's training to entertain, to occupy the stable as The Queen uses them in the ways he needs. Abrecan, Orlee, and Gaelan struggle to come to terms with what one decision did to their lives in the stable...

Please come along with Joelle on this journey, shared with the readers in serial fashion. A multitude of "Happily-ever-afters" are waiting with the completion of book 9.

Author's Note: This novel is meant for open-minded adults. Activities described include a wide range of BDSM and sexual activities, some of which are male/male, male/female, group sex, consensual slavery, oral/anal/vaginal intercourse, bondage. The story also covers some sensitive topics in characters' back stories, such as drug abuse, childhood abuse, religious abuse.
