Best Book Sequels

A lot of authors are daunted by writing a sequel. I was dubious about writing a series to start with, because it takes a lot of stamina to sustain momentum across several installments of a greater plot. I knew going into Alpha, the second book of The Scattered Dark Series, the challenges that would be […]

There’s No Drooling in Shiftersquick

 I’ve blogged about squicks before. There can be a wide margin between infatuation, curiosity, squick. And you can never say what that line is. It changes one reader to the next.  One’s penchant for golden showers may freak out another’s snowballing, noncon fantasy, breath play, or age play. Squicks aren’t all physical acts or manifestations. They […]

Confessions of a Bad Fangirl……..

I have a confession to make: I was a bad fangirl. When I first submitted The Fangirl’s Dream to my publisher, Decadent Publishing, I was still reveling in my TV boyfriend hangover and memories of visiting the Yucatan a while back. It’s not my fault.

I’ve been working really hard on several new contracts (YAY!!) which hasn’t left me much time to play. That said, the aforementioned projects have given me insight into longevity in a publishing career (across several genres) that I’d […]

The Making of Gigolo Seduction

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Literary Lagniappe, a site devoted to the behind-the-scenes exploration of stories. In case you missed it, check out the Making of Gigolo Seduction an interracial erotic novella by Fierce Dolan The Setup Long in passion’s service, confident Asif enjoys his life as a […]

Challenging the Reader

A few months ago I raised some discussion on my Facebook page about Stephen King’s Youtube interview in which he says (48:30) regarding Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey -esque books that ‘readers don’t want to be challenged.’  As well, King goes on to speak of a ‘snob’ contingency in the industry, where if a book shoots to stardom, audiences […]
