Kim's new book Permanent from the Indelibly Marked series released today. She has donated some trading cards and photo books for a giveaway.. Yay.. we all like free stuff right??

and without further ado...Permanent...

What is Permanent?

Always on the outside looking in, accountant, Lindsay Stevens, has calculated her transformation from a small town, nerdy bookkeeper to a sleek, high-powered accountant down to the last penny.  With all her checks finally in balance, she moves to California to start a new life free of her embarrassing past she never wants revealed.

As Hollywood's hottest tattoo artist, Shane Elliott thrives on standing out.  Charismatic and free of commitments, he travels through life with a wink and a smile, hiding the letters he receives from the IRS as if they don't exist.  Now with bills to pay and tax collectors breathing down his back, for the first time in his life Shane can't charm his way out of his situation.  However, when his new neighbor literally falls into his life, he knows he has struck gold once again.

Though Lindsay tries to keep her distance, she suddenly finds herself trying to hide her true self as she thrust into a world she doesn't think she belongs, but can't resist.  In his good-time life, Shane  must discover there is more to life than a party if he wants something more.

With their lives intertwined, the two must learn accept each other, themselves and their love.
Worlds collide as they decide what is truly permanent.
Permanent is the first book in the Indelibly Marked Series that follows the lives and loves of those surrounding Permanent Tattoo. 

An entire entourage, including a few people she didn’t know had joined in her search party, but she could only focus on Shane as he guided her into the driveway and sprinted to her car. 

She barely threw the transmission in park before Shane opened the door and practically got inside with her. Though she wanted to protest, or tell him he was making too big of a thing out of it, her body disobeyed and she wrapped her arms around his neck. This time she denied herself nothing and purposely leaned in and took a big long whiff of his soap. She was done for. “Oh God.” 

“We’re never going to do that to Shane again, are we?” He leaned in and kissed her lightly on the cheek, grazing the corner of her mouth. 

She didn’t realize she’d held her breath until her lungs demanded air and she gasped and grabbed Shane’s leg. When her hand grazed across his jeans, she swore she’d never felt anything quite so supple and pliable, a well-worn fine nap not unlike the most expensive velvet beneath her fingertips. Beneath his jeans she could clearly make out the definition of his toned thigh. The contrast of textures overloaded her senses.  “Did you know the 5 freeway and the Golden State freeway are the same?” 

He chuckled but didn’t move away from her. In fact, his dark blue eyes stared so intently that she studied his arm tattoos. One thing about Shane was that every part of him was interesting to look at. 

“Why were you on the 5?” 

“I was trying to get back from Orange County.” She admitted it like she’d committed a felony, and stared at his forearm. His smooth skin gave him the perfect showcase to display his personal artwork. Without really thinking, she touched his arm and used her nail to trace one of the leafy vines that trailed and curled around his forearm. “I’m sorry, it was for work.” 

“What did you think of it?” 

“I thought it was very repetitive.” She took in a black panther’s paw. The tattoos were all part of him and her mouth dried, causing her voice to sound strained. “Why was Orange County off limits?” Her finger made it around the back of the panther, and then almost as if she awakened from her trance, she stopped. 

Shane put his hand over hers. “Finish.” 

“Why didn’t you want me to go to Orange County?” She looked up at his face, his focus clearly on her hand and she allowed her finger to resume its trek. 

“I didn’t want you to like it there.” 

Her hand made it back to where it started and she shook her head. “Everything there was too much the same.” 

“It’s good to like things that are a little less conventional.” His voice lowered. 

She licked her lips to impart any moisture she could into her arid mouth. With Shane in her car in front of a tattoo shop in downtown Los Angeles, she doubted her problem was being conventional. Her problem was that she didn’t have the data to deal with the unconventional.

Here is an excerpt from, "A Perfect Passion" by Piper Kay

I inhale his cool water cologne, my god he smells fucking good. I lean forward just a bit and brush my lips across his bare back. His skin is warm from him working in the sun all day. I continue sliding my lips across the curves in his back. His skin breaks out in goose bumps, but he still doesn’t pull away from me. With the tip of my tongue, I make little swipes at his skin, and he gasps again. I slide my left hand from his hipbone to the front a tiny bit, and my finger slips inside the top of his waistband of his shorts. He shifts, so I jerk back a bit, but still caress his stomach muscles in my palm. Dax lets out a quiet moan, "Mmm…
How about a taste of "Trifecta" by Kim Carmichael

Her heart hurt from the hurried beats it made trying to recover from her shock, and with no air left in her lungs, she gasped, only to have her mouth covered by Jason’s.

Or was it Russell’s?

No, it was Jason, parting her lips, tangling his tongue with hers, the taste of champagne still lingering, daring her to lap it up—and she tried. No doubt it was Jason, even with four hands caressing her and her eyes closed, it had to be him. Only Jason would taste like sin and decadence, the cheesecake in the middle of the night you couldn’t take one bite of, but you had to sit on the floor of the kitchen and have the whole cake.

Wait! Her mind screamed. Four hands? No one, not even the most spoiled ate cheesecake with two forks, and she forced herself to put her hands on his chest and push him away. She didn’t need the last bite.

It was time for a diet.


Take a peek at "Marcus" by Chelle

The cool night air caresses my skin, raising goose bumps. The moon hangs high in the sky, the singing of the wolves ringing in my ears. The warm breathe of a lover skates across the back of my neck. I turn sliding my arms around the neck of my love, looking into the amber gaze. A whispering of love, of promise, sealed with a passionate kiss. ‘ I shall love you for eternity, following your soul across time and space. For one day, you will be ready to join me again.’ My lover tells me as he pulls me hard against his body. He draws my tongue into his mouth, running hot hands across my back. He pulls away from me, tears glistening in his perfect eyes. Then he is gone. I am alone in the darkness and the wolves sing a sorrowful tune.

He hesitated and it made my heart skip a beat as he stood up and held his hand out to me. I took it and stood up, too close to him and he took a slow breath as he glanced down at my breasts crammed into the top of my corset. I cleared my throat and tried to catch my breath as he touched my face and I turned my eyes to his.

"Say it Vanessa, and I am yours," he whispered into my ear. I closed my eyes as his mouth hovered at my ear and his breath felt warm and inviting. The humming began in my chest and then lowered to my stomach and yet again another quick burst of movement and it settled between my thighs as I felt his mouth at my neck, his lips ever so slightly grazing my skin.


Check out this excerpt of "Nila Believes" by Riley Steel

He guided me up and we kissed. Red and I spent a stupid amount of time in a normal day kissing and I never tired of it. I never wanted to lose the feeling that I had to have him. It was there all the time and when our skin touched, when we made love the feeling was so intense sometimes it was overwhelming. I scooted over and straddled him and then guided his lovely cock inside me. I can’t describe the feeling; it’s like a part of you coming home that’s been missing all your life. We held hands and I began to work on top, finding me a rhythm and feeling my release already so near.


Take a peek at "The Goddess of Blackwater Pond" by Nicolette Grey


"Shhh." He placed her hand on his crotch and unbuttoned her blouse, silencing her protests with his lips.

"What if someone comes?" she whispered, pushing him away. "I could get fired." He shook his head and unclasped her bra. When he took her left nipple into his mouth it hardened against his tongue.

"Relax, Aurora. No one’s coming. The door’s locked and the front light’s off.   You disabled the camera. No one will ever know."


"But what?" He pulled her against him and kissed her again.


Have a little taste of "Taste Eternity" by Candi Delshamagus

Darcy took her time, enjoying the smooth skin beneath her lips and the weight of the other breast in her hand. She undressed Crystal slowly, exploring her body with tongue, lips and teeth. When her teeth grazed a tight, mocha-colored nipple, Crystal hissed with impatience and began pulling at Darcy’s clothes. Soon they were both naked and exploring each other’s bodies, gently at first, and then with more urgency.

Here’s a sneak peek at "Slowburn" by Nikki Prince

"See you want me just as badly as I want you. Admit it baby girl."

She groaned as he pressed his face into her neck and took in a long, deep breath as if taking her scent in.

"What are you doing?"

"God if you don’t know I’m seriously out of practice." He nipped her neck and her legs buckled. She would have fallen if he hadn’t caught her swiftly, pressing his towel-clad body to hers. She could feel every inch of him through the barrier of the terry cloth and her shorts. Damn if he didn’t feel as if he belonged there with her like this.


Take a look at "Safe Word" by Sarah Jane

"God,” he breathed into my hair. His mouth leaned into my ear. “You are so soft.” Our feelings and actions balanced on the point of a needle. We could go one way or another, but right now, nothing seemed more impossible than turning away from him. His eyes were half closed and by the way the heat emanated from his hands, I knew he felt the same.

Revealing Hamilton



Sarah Jayne Carr is a novelist who can be found most evenings with a cup of tea in-hand and her imagination racing from plot to plot. When away from her work, part of her mind is constantly brainstorming her next story and she always has writing paraphernalia within reach.

She wrote stories as a child, but became more serious about her passion during her twenties. In her spare time, she likes to read, splash in mud puddles, smell bookstores and eat Honeycrisp apples. Yearly, she participates in NaNoWriMo and has mentored others through the program. Due to her dedication to National Novel Writing Month, she is part of an amazing writing group.

Born and raised in Washington State, Sarah still resides in the area. Her life is richly filled with her supportive, yet swashbuckling husband and their golden Nugget.

REVEALING HAMILTON is Sarah’s first full-length novel. EMBRACING HAMILTON, book two in the JackRabbit7 series, is due to be released on June 14th, 2013

A conversation with a stranger changes Amelia Hamilton's life forever. When she learns her grandfather faked his own death, normalcy slips from Amelia's grasp. To make matters worse, he is coming for her in less than seven days. What she hasn't determined is why.

Amelia's grandfather, Marius Benedict, once headed The Physician Coalition, an elite group of doctors who threw the Hippocratic Oath out the window. Years ago, they used a low-risk medical research study as a front for their experiments. Without their consent, innocents were injected with JackRabbit7, a hazardous substance used to alter their DNA. The victims were left with less-than-desirable super-human powers or excruciating death. Years after he disbanded the group, Marius has a new plan and is reforming The Coalition.

Max, a mysterious stranger from the Insurance Agency, offers to help keep Amelia safe. He introduces The Agency as an underground government organization that contains and eliminates those who intend to harm the world. To protect The Agency, the truth of their activities are concealed and replaced with sugar-coated stories in the media.

Over the course of the next week, Amelia has to accept the truth and learn who can be trusted. At midnight on her 23rd birthday, a contract between The Coalition and The Insurance Agency will expire, giving Marius full rein to approach his granddaughter and finish the project he started with her so many years ago.


Shadows from snowflakes flitted across the walls, illuminated by a dull light from the window. As I passed through the entryway, something crunched under my boot: a set of keys. The coat rack leaned against the wall, leaving a pile of scarves and hats littering the floor. This was beyond Connor’s expectations of maid Amelia.
Something felt wrong.
In the living room, an ottoman rested on its side and a magazine lay open on the floor. A colorful article advertising Las Vegas blared from the pages. From the corner of my eye, the screen of Connor’s cell phone caught my attention. I watched it blink, communicating new messages awaited.
I went to the kitchen next and found the latest stack of mail on the island. The top envelope made me recoil when I saw the return address. It was another letter from the State of Washington. This one was addressed to Amelia Brooks.
My identity had been an issue for years. Since age 18, I had submitted multiple requests to change my last name from my grandfather’s back to my parents. With each attempt, the paperwork came back denied and stated my name was Amelia Benedict or another obscure surname starting with the letter “B”. Double-checking each field, I filled out the forms to read Amelia Hamilton, but was contradicted every time. I determined it a sick way for my grandfather to haunt me from the grave. The latest correspondence would have to wait.
A broken wine bottle and bandage wrappers were on the counter next to the refrigerator. Droplets of dark fluid created a path from the bottle to the sink, making me shudder. The room began to feel too warm and nausea flooded my stomach. I grabbed a rolling pin from the island, gripping it so tightly my knuckles hurt.
“Calm down, Amelia,” I said. “There’s a logical explanation and no one is going to hurt you.” I forced my mind away from childhood memories of a basement.
Swallowing hard, I tiptoed across the living room to the bedroom. As usual, the door was cracked open. I held the pin over my head, ready to attack in an instant. From where I stood, I couldn’t see more than the corner of the dresser and a beam of soft light. I took a deep breath and nudged the handle. A flashlight rested on the nightstand, pointed toward the ceiling. As I scanned the room, my jaw dropped and my heart paused.
“Connor?” I dropped the makeshift weapon at my feet.

Closure by Kim Carmichael

Today we are going to take at look at the book Closure by Kim Carmichael a release by Hot Ink Press..
My review::
Kim Carmichael's Closure is a well written story of love and closure.

Riley is a confident and success full woman, now. She was a unique and different teenager. Having re-invented herself after being scorned by the man she was in love with in high school. Then called to a meeting for the publisher she works for, in walks in none other than the man who scorned her back then.

Mike Taylor is a successful businessman, in town on business. He finds himself attracted to not only Riley's beauty but her strength. There is something about her that leaves him at a loss of the control he so highly maintains in his life.

There are secrets to be revealed and steamy scenes that are well written. Can Riley finally find closure after all these years or will the secrets she holds so close to her heart be the end of any chance at it?

The plot flows well and the sex scenes are well written with well developed characters you will love.
I highly reccomend this book to anyone looking for a great read. 18+

You can find Kim on amazon to check out all of her books.

Sunday full of Sin

Today I thought maybe I would give you a Sunday of Sin and delight with an excerpt from The Black Lily Club. This is my first published work. It was published in OCT 2012. I am currently rewriting it. To bring you the answers to the questions left untold in the first version. For those of  you wanting more of Jasmine and Marcus.. this is going to be the more..

Stop.” His command freezing me in place. “Strip.”
I shed my clothes, with trembling fingers. I can't see his face, but his voice pours over my heated body.
After I remove the last of my clothes, I drop to my knees in front of him. I assume to position he requests, on my knees, legs spread, hand resting on my thighs palms up. I raise my chin and lower my eyes, racking my brain to make sure this is the correct position.
The flicker in my peripheral vision alerts me to his movements. I strain to stay still and not fidget. I've learned so much from his this last few days. I enjoy the look of approval that flashes in his eyes, when I please him.
The cool leather encases my wrist, then my ankles. My body hums with delight. The thin strap he places around my neck, sends a shiver down my spine. The clicking of a clasp, and I feel a tug. Marcus has just leashed me.
“Stand, pet, we are going to the dungeon.”
I stand on trembling legs. He has never taken me to the dungeon. There are other people down there. He pulls me closer to him, the scent of sandalwood and pine fills me head.
“Are you going to be a good girl?
I nod an affirmative. My voice lodged in my throat. The fire racing through my system, burning a path of fear through me. I'm not ready for this.
“I need a vocal answer pet.” He jerks my head upright, forcing me to meet his gaze.
“Yes.” It's a raspy whisper. Sir, may I ask why we are going to the dungeon?”

You may ask, but that doesn't mean I'll give you an answer. I'm your Master and I choose where we play. Do you understand?”

Yes Sir.” I lower my eyes.

“Good. Let's go.” Marcus heads into the elevator dragging me along behind him leashed like an animal.

Kim McNiel present's Caleb

Kim McNiel is a good ole' country girl at heart. She was born and raised in a small Texas town called Spring. As the mother of three, she spent most of her adult life dedicated to raising her family. With her children almost grown, she decided to fulfill her dream of writing. Her best friend, told her 'pen to paper sweetie, never give up, and never let anyone tell you that you CAN'T--" she heeded his advice and didn't. She writes contemporary and steamy romance and several memoir pieces on the back burner.

Caleb loves the ladies and can’t keep his ego in his pants. With a new set of legs to wrap around him every two nights, he never thinks about what he’d do if Sarah caught him - until she does.

The repercussions are cataclysmic, giving him a second chance at life. Who is Caleb really? The ego or the man he professes to be? This playa plays to win.

For those of you looking for a little teaser for this new release from Hot Ink Press...

Stopping at the florist on the way home, I pull in and pick up a dozen pink roses for Sarah. Yes, sucking ass big time.

Hey, if it works…then I’ll be all good. When I’m good, everyone is good. God forbid I get red roses, she’d want to run off to the fucking chapel. That isn’t going to happen to me, not in this lifetime anyways. I stroll in the house.

"I’m home babe," I yell out, dropping the folder on the table.

"Upstairs," Sarah yells back. I know this tone.

Skipping two steps at a time, I follow the circular staircase. I dodge the hanging chandelier with my head. Something else she had to have, forgetting I am well over six fucking feet tall.

"Hi darling, these are for you," I hand her the flowers.

"Why? Because you slammed the phone down in my ear earlier?"

And…here we go! She’s such a bitchacoholic.

Will he finally allow love to penetrate his broken heart and accept his fate? Join us in the incredible conclusion to the DGD series as we come full circle and have all questions answered, proving that everyone and everything are connected in some way. This series is MALVS 18+
First, thank you for having me. Well now. I have been a published author for over 3 years now and during that time I have learned so much about the literary world it would probably make your head pop off. These are just a few things…
1.Avoid Vanity Presses if you can. They over change on everything and then you get crap for royalties. I went with a HUGE company and yes I did investigate it and there were good and bad things listed…BUT, I was new and so wanted to get my first book out that I set aside fear and just jumped in and I almost drown. For 2 and a half years they sold my book, interfering with the sale of the NEW version that was signed to a publisher and they hid behind shit like "that is another site, we are not making a profit…and let me transfer you to the right department for that." All the while I watched the original linked to me on amazon and people got confused as to which one to buy. In fact a hard copy of it was being sold for $39.99 which is CRAZY! I sell them for $19.99 and ebook is just 99 cents, but anyway, I hired a lawyer, actually two and they did their thing and now the book is gone and I can breathe easy. What a huge pain in my ass! So anyway, stay away from that nonsense. Oh and my "royalties" were literally pennies on the dollar. I think my first royalty check was $10.00 after 6 months of selling my butt off. Boo and hiss…suck it. Moral of the story??? Do it yourself AND shop it to Indie pubs. "Do it yourself" mean buy the programs you need to format, get a website, set up paypal and sell that bad boy yourself. You can have your own account on amazon and sell ebooks, you can have links on your website and sell ebooks too and print and utilize to print if you want to be economical. They have quality products and are user friendly. You can also google "free websites" and get one set up for FREE or just pay small fees per month and enable more space for selling product.
2.Join and start groups on Facebook. Now some people will tell you that Facebook is the devil now with promotion but honestly I am not having the problems some people are. First, look at the groups you promote in. Are they promotion friendly? Do they have people complaining about "spamming"? If so…leave. That is NOT where you should be promoting

yourself. Join groups that say "Post at will", ones that interact with each other in a professional manner and do not bully people. The bully groups are jokes anyway. Sorry you did not get a date to the prom but take that shit to therapy right? Anyway, start a group yourself and make that promotion central and branch out. I encountered serious opposition when I first joined FB from some "authors" who just had no intention of helping anyone or linking a single thing. Sad right? Well those people sell nothing and have no idea how to market or promote so if you have them in your circles cut them loose too. I did, I honestly do my best to just stay in the positive and support those who do it for themselves and for others. Those are the people you should associate yourself with anyway. They are on the rise and you certainly want to be too. So anyway, be picky about your groups. Best thing to do is join a few and then learn about other groups from the people in the ones you like. 9 times out of 10 they will lead you to other awesome spots to share your work. Safe spots to post? Come to some of mine, they are full of fabulous people.

3.Rotate your posts. I say this often to those I help promote and it is true. It is kind of like if you always have pizza, it starts to just taste like cardboard. Well, you have to rotate your posts in groups. Don’t post the same thing in all of them constantly. You should mix it up. I am in 389 groups and I do not post in all of them all of the time. Why would I? I mean after a while no one will read them anyway. I don’t want that. And when you post keep it short and engaging. People want to see your personality, not a salesman. I mean

they already know you want them to go and buy your stuff, they get that but WHY should they buy it is the question? If you cannot entice someone in a post to go check out book then what is your book like? Think about it.
4.Reviews. Goodreads vs amazon. Okay, we all see the posts from time to time after an author has read a crappy review on themselves. Here is the thing…it sucks, we have all had it BUT you have to ignore them. YOU HAVE TOO IGNORE THEM. I said it twice to try to get you to really see it. Why you ask? Well because you only give them all the power and a forum to say more if you do that. You can privately call them a asshat and whatnot but publicly?...let them fade like a nasty fart. Not everyone will like you. Not everyone will think you are amazing. Not everyone will think your book changed their lives forever. Understand and accept this before you release your first book and then put your heavy coat on and weather the storm. There will be some and it is how you move past it that speaks volumes about you and your work. Believe in yourself always. Do not get distracted with that nonsense and OMG…if another AUTHOR does this to you? Holy shit. You tell your lit friends about this. Warn them. Tell them about so and so who took advantage of your kindness as you gave them free stuff for an event to HELP them and then they turned around and did this to you. I would. I mean that is so rude I do not even have to expand on it. That is right. Leave your opinion on other books at the door as you step into the literary world. I don’t think you want to build an army of enemies do you? If you do not like a book, set it down and move on. DO NOT PUBLICLY BASH YOUR LIT BROTHERS AND SISTERS. It is suicide, trust me. I would never ever do that anyway but some are dumb enough to do just that and watch as they sink in oblivion. Goodreads, huh. What a hot mess some days huh? I mean it can be a snake pit of mean ass bitter people. Not everyone on Goodreads is like that but man! Some of the reviews with venom are just scary. So…STOP READING THAT SHIT. I did. In fact I did a year ago. I also make it point to NOT read a single review under a 3. Why? Because I sell a ton of books, I have a fan base and I do not need that type of negativity
messing with my mind and work. I get books done because I do not second guess myself. Some people love me and some don’t and that is fine. I focus on those who buy my books and support me, not the ones who download me for free and then try to bash me. Why should I? I don’t know them, I owe them nothing and that is my last point. Do not feel like you should undercut your worth because you are called Indie. Indie authors are the future of publishing. Understand how very important you are and be proud of your accomplishments and that you are the future of this industry. The big 6(5) fear you, and they should. You control your work, your covers your marketing, your promotion. You represent you without all of the middle men taking a bite. So rock it. Don’t allow them to turn their noses up at you and call you a plight on the industry, we are not at all. If we did not matter then why are they talking about us? Yep….exactly.
5.Covers. Holy shit. Okay. Here is the thing. My opinion is this….LESS IS MORE. Do not place 55 things on your cover representing the whole story. Keep it simple, entice them. This is your dinner party and you can either show up in a great dress and kickass heels or naked. Your choice. I mean this is it, this is your one shot to get a reader to choose your book over millions. Make it count. Use hi def pictures, great resolution, crisp text and look at the popular books and learn what is working. I often reference new books to see what the trends are in book covers. I never copy but I like to stay on top of what is happening as anyone in business would.
6.Last thing this time around is understand it will take time, lots of it. You have to work harder at promotion and marketing then you do at writing the book. Sounds crazy but trust me it is true. You have to make and keep connections, cut ties with those who are negative and doing nothing to help you or themselves, avoid drama, keep pushing and things will happen for you. Take all opportunities to expand on your fanbase with giveaways, blogs, interviews, joining groups, posting, hosting events and so on. You build and create yourself and it is only you that cares the most about your

book. Listen to that and understand it. This is your show, go into it and represent yourself as you should, be giving but over generous, dedicate time each day to it and make this what you want it to be….I did.

It's Friday.. how about a review???

This review is for the third book in the Pravus series by Poppet.. I am so in love with these books.. I purchased this series in paperback even after I read the kindle versions.. just because I can..


Betrayal catapults Zaria back into Zauran's life. Bo┼żena is a poisoned thorn in Zaria's side and her world comes crashing down as violence, betrayal, kidnapping and death threaten to rip her from love.

A king's key is the only bridge between Zaria and happiness, and only Jowendrhan and Sveta know the secrets unraveling Belgrade. An ancient book blocks Zaria from knowing true light when she needs it most.

The neuri world reels as the king returns and complicates all their lives, and the Slakax are revealed, endangered, and hunted.

This is book 3 in the Pravus series of paranormal romance

My Review:

Zaria has been incontent in her relationship with her Redemmed Vampyre for a while. Finding him kissing a woman who looks just like her is the last straw. She flees to the only safe place her heart knows, Zauran.
Zauran has loved Zaria since he first laid eyes on her and promises to always be her safe place no matter what she needs.
But the king of the Neuri's is back in town. Just when Zaria and Zauran have found the love of the heart and souls desire, turmoil and broken rules threaten to tear them apart. The war between Vampyre and Neuri is centuries long. Can their love stand the trials they are about to be put through.
Poppet takes you on an explosive adventure of soul searching emotions. You will meet the king of the Neuri. There will be blood. There will be rules broken which were meant to protect humanity. There will be the discovery of a long thought lost race of pure light.
This is a book you will not put down. On the edge of your seat you will be in for an emotions ride so deep you will feel the tears and fears of these characters. You will be left wanting more.
I loved this book and can't wait for SVETE the first in the Neuri series

Work In Progress Wed..

I haven't been writing.. I really haven't been reading.. I am lacking in inspiration.. How do you find something to inspire your ideas? Well this is a tidbit from a WIP I have.. which may or may not make it to publication..

The deafening music, assaults my ears, someone just entered this room. They makes no sounds. I can’t smell or see them. Straining my senses to their limits, I try to get a read on my buyer. My heart is racing, hammering against my sternum. Trying to focus on scent, see if I can recognize my buyer, I'm overwhelmed by the patchouli oil on my skin My stomach is twisted in knots. Adrenaline floods my system, tensing my muscles, awaiting the need for fight or flight.

I'm unsure of how much time passes. No words are spoke, no touch is made. Sitting here on my knees, in this barely little red outfit, I dare not open up a conversation. Trying not to fidget or let panic settle completely over me, I wait. This can go bad in so many ways. I know Jasmine isn’t human, not only humans play in this bar. How do I let myself get into this shit? I know better, it isn’t safe for me; yet here I am.

The silence is claustrophobic, crushing my being, the terror setting in. The muscles in my legs twitch, my fingers curl into fists, fight or flight, whatever happens I will be ready. The cloying scent of the oil, suffocating my lungs, nostrils flaring I scent the room. Still nothing, but the damn oil smell.

“Allya, my little wolf why do you run from me?” The voice pours over me, warm and rich. Instantly my body heats. Oh, God. It's him.

I freeze like a deer in the headlights, my body refusing to obey my instinct to run. My legs feel like lead, unable to escape, my nightmares come to fruition.“Come now, my little wolf, I asked you a question. It is a terrible state when a man has to purchase his mate, just to be able to talk to her.” Oh God, oh God. What do I do now?

My body floods with adrenaline, readying for the ensuing fight. My legs awaken, the blood rushing through them, fingers twitching. In one swift movement I rip the blindfold off, quickly assessing my options

ThI hope you enjoy this little snippet.. It has been rewritten at least three times.. so with that being said... yes it probably needs another edit.. and yes it will still probably be different by the time it reaches a publisher.. I hope you enjoy a little peak into my current WIP.
Love always

Sunday Sunday Sunday

So it's Sunday, the weekend is coming to a close. The family heads back to work tomorrow and the kids back to school. What do you do with yourself now?

I need to write. I need to finish another story. Why because I am stalled. As a new author I have found I apparently have the dog from the movie UP syndrome.. You know every time a squirrel runs by I get distracted. I write.. then on let's check facebook.. oh I have lives on my game.. oh okay now I am all dead.. I write... oh whats on the news.. checks that... write.. oh is that the mail man... write.. oh wonder what mom's doing.. call mom.. write.. oh no the kids just got off the bus.. no more time to write..

I am pretty sure that equates to about one paragraph of actual writing.. So I am asking you all.. How to you force your self to write.. When self doubt creeps up and keeps your muse in ADD mode..

What are the ways you can make yourself finish something?

I have found that now that I am home all day I tend to overestimate the time I have alone and write less than when I worked 40 hours a week..

So tell me oh wise ones.. what is your schedule and how to you keep it?

Tuesday Teaser..

I know it is late in the day, but I thought I would post a little Tuesday teaser anyways... This is from The Black Lily Club.

She is breathing hard, her breast rising and falling twinkling the bells on the end of the clamps.
Sweat has broken out on her brow. I smell her arousal; its perfume permeating all of my senses.
 Stepping to the end of the bed, I watch as she adjusts to the new sensations.

I run the flogger softly over her legs and belly She trembles at the touch. Not out of fear, I could
 smell that. She is excited. Writhing on the bed searching for the next touch, it is a beautiful sight.
 I bring the flogger down harder onto her thighs. She gasps but doesn’t retract from the touch. Her
 slit is dripping with her juices. I flog her again this time across her breast. A moan breaks from
 her throat as she arches towards me. The twinkling of the bells and her gasping breathe the only
 sounds in the room.
Here is what reviewers are saying.
Poppet Author says, " I dare say, I am sure most girls will now be hoping to receive a black lily as compensation for not getting their invitation to Hogwarts *smiles*. Big girls will all want a Black Lily and a night in that club!"
Julie Newberry says, " I really liked this book, it brought you into the whole BDSM scene slowly, ideal for a new reader, just starting out and wanting to learn more about the scene, with a wonderful love story intertwined in it"
Have a wonderful week.. stayed tuned. I have some hot new swag coming. I will run a contest after it comes in.
Until next time, stay naughty
