Today, on my blog, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing.

Recently, I was appalled by a privilege-blind piece in a Southwest Portland local monthly newspaper. I wrote to the editor, who published an abbreviated version of my comments. In today's blog post, "Privilege Blind" I share my full "editorial".

Two years ago a Montana District judge's outrageous victim-blaming comments defending his commuting of a pedophile rapist's sentence angered me. I'm still angry. The child killed herself because of what her 54-year-old teacher did to her.

The judge claimed the 14-year-old rape victim looked "older than her chronological age" and was "as much in control of the situation" as the man forty years her senior.

The judge's revolting and all-too-common attitude hit a nerve. When I was a child, I looked and acted older than my chronological age and I almost became a rape victim. I wrote about my ordeal then for Truthout's SpeakOut.

Today that essay -- with an update -- appears on PDXX Collective, literary feminism for the working writer.

Unfortunately, even though the rapist has been resentenced to 10 years in prison and the judge was reprimanded, this essay is still all too relevant.

Spyder's Trouble "is one of those books that seems to launch a reader into space, new worlds and new cultures instantly ... The writing is very good, not clunky or unreadable. The characters were interesting and captured my attention. ... This book packs a punch and delivers one suspenseful moment after another." -- BDSM Book Reviews

In Spyder's Truth, "the author skillfully avoids the common pitfall of going too 'tech heavy' at the expense of a genuinely human story." The Lady Cassandra "is a fascinating character, alluring, persuasive, shrewd, deeply intelligent, but also at times tender, caring, empathetic and wise -- precisely the qualities a great Domme should possess." -- Erotica for the Big Brain

Erica Jong said, "Poetry is what we turn to in the most emotional moments of our lives -- when a beloved friend dies, when a baby is born, when we fall in love." Wallace Stevens said, "A poet looks at the world the way a man looks at a woman." Edgar Allan Poe said, "Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words." Most of us agree, when it comes to expressing passion, there is nothing more effective than poetry.

Coming Together: In Verse, a collection of erotic poetry and risqué verse edited by Ashley R Lister, releases next Friday, November 27. Sales proceeds benefit Hope for Paws, an animal rescue organization.

The collection includes three of my poems, "The Beast Within," "Eruption," and "In Control" as well as work by Ashley R Lister, Alessia Brio, Victoria Blisse, Rachel Woe, Janine Ashbless, Liz Honeywell, AJ Chilson, Roy Clements, Katy J, Ashe Barker, Lisa Bower, PJ Bayliss, Geneva Rose, Jay Willowbay, Slave Nano, Lily Harlem, Kay Jaybee, KD Grace, Norbert Gora, Jade A Waters, Adrea Kore, Bella Settarr, Okami No Koga, Daniel Davis, Joanna Harrington-Cruise, Sophia Sophia, Le Petite Mortimer, Eleanor Meadows, Angell Brooks, L Hollamby, Blacksilk, CA Bell, Ian Jade, Tamsin Flowers, Ruby Red, Colin Davies, Desmond Field, and Rachel McGladdery.

The most important thing to understand if you create an account on any website that is free (and even on some that charge a fee) is that you're not the consumer, you're the product. In today's blog post, "Staying Safe Online," I discuss things to consider if you have, or want to have, a profile on a fetish site.

On conventional social media sites, you're limited in your ability to embarrass yourself by each site's content restrictions. But fetish sites have no such constraints. Instead of monetizing your cute kitten pictures, those sites profit off your sex life.

"Staying Safe Online" is excerpted from Connecting to Kink: Safely exploring your BDSM fantasies online.

A BDSM Space Opera
Centuries ago, theocratic governments subjugated the last resistance on Earth. Those unwilling to tolerate the religious bigotry, fled the planet seeking a new beginning among the stars.

Generations later, their descendants found a new home in a far away system.

But no matter how far humans travel, greed and the desire for control journey with them and now the specter of intolerance rises again.

The Lady Cassandra -- FemDom, slave owner, Dominatrix -- finds her lifestyle and her livelihood threatened by a fast-rising fanatical movement founded by a former client. Her alpha slave, Captain Varyl Malonds aka Spyder -- smuggler and superb pilot with incredible tactical skills -- risks his ship, his income, and even his life for his Lady.



Book #1
Published January, 2015
Spyder, captain of the spaceship Trouble, ignores threats from the owner of his cargo and the anger of his influential and overdue passenger to rescue the Dominatrix Lady Cassandra. The delay forces him to risk Trouble, his life and that of his crew when a notorious criminal chases the ship from one end of the system to another.



Book #2
Releases October 5 in ebook; October 8 in print
Aboard a ship named Truth, Spyder carries the Lady Cassandra on her crusade to stop the Righteous Order of Piety Purists from enslaving the system in a sexless, joyless existence. But the Pietists want her dead and will sacrifice anything and anyone to kill her. Their determination to destroy his Lady, her ship, and its crew puts Spyder's and everyone else's life at risk.

Last week Ed Goldberg of All Classical Portland interviewed me about Spyder's Trouble for his Author Author program.

Ed called Spyder's Trouble "the most unusual novel I've read in quite a while." He had some interesting questions to ask about the world, Spyder, and especially Lady Cassandra.

You can now listen to the show on the All Classical Portland website, my Events page, or on iTunes.

Ever felt out of place at a party someone dragged you to? When you arrived, ever wondered if the person you expected to meet was somewhere else and you showed up at the Wrong Party? That happens to Laura in my latest short story, now available for purchase.

Wrong Party: Brian sent her the incorrect address. But, Jack does his best to convince Laura to forget about her intended date.

You can now pre-order the second novella in my BDSM space opera series, Spyder's Truth, Book Two of The Lady & The Spyder.

One by one the Righteous Order of Piety Purists takes over settled planets and colonies, enthralling governments to imprison their citizens in a sexless, joyless existence. Forced into exile, compelled to form a morally questionable affiliation with a crime lord, the Dominatrix Lady Cassandra struggles to protect her slaves and clients from the encroaching Pietist threat.

But liberating a devoted collaborator spirals into a violent confrontation. To protect her allies, Cassandra and her slave captain Spyder, take the Order's so-called representatives into custody. Although they claim piety and peace, the prisoners' heavily armed presence aboard Cassandra's spaceship Truth, endangers both the crew and the ship.

Pursued by ships equipped with sophisticated tracking equipment and weaponry, Spyder must use his wits, his crew's talents, and everything he can demand of Truth to keep them all alive. Because of the Pietist's disproportionate reaction, Lady Cassandra questions the Order's priorities and goals. She discovers the roots of the movement entangled with her own history and realizes the Pietists will sacrifice anything and anyone to destroy her.

Spyder's Truth, an erotic BDSM space opera by Korin I. Dushayl, Book Two of The Lady & The Spyder, publishes on October 5, 2015, now available for pre-order.

If you haven't read Book One, Spyder's Trouble, click the link to find where it's available in electronic and paper book.

You can pre-order Spyder's Truth today at Smashwords, iTunes, and Barnes & Noble. Other retailers will be posted on the website as it becomes available.

Competing for attention in today's publishing environment is hard enough. But, when retailers prevent you from putting your books on the correct virtual shelf in the store, it becomes impossible.

Erotica ≠ romance and romance ≠ erotica. My BDSM space opera, Spyder's Trouble contains no hint of romance. And yet ...

Read about how yet another retailer works to prevent you from consuming erotica without the trappings of romance on my blog.

What's the one thing always said by neighbors when they arrest a mass murderer or serial killer? "They were so nice and quiet, I can't imagine they would do something like that."

Appearances can be deceiving. You can't tell a person is a rapist by looking at them. A top wearing lots of leather with a fancy flogger hanging from their belt may have never thrown it before. A bottom, begging to be beaten bloody, may have never suffered more than a torn fingernail. Someone who lies about their training and experience can cause the partner they play with permanent harm -- emotionally or physically.

Last fall, the Salem Munch contacted me about giving a presentation on staying safe through negotiations. After I spoke with Chris, aka TheDarkLord, about what he hoped I could cover, I realized I could write an entire book on the subject. So I did and now you can purchase Connecting to Kink: Safely exploring your BDSM fantasies online in print and ebook.

Connecting to Kink: Safely exploring your BDSM fantasies online offers essays, tips, personal experience, and opinion written from more than a dozen years of experience advising online kinksters. Whether you just discovered online kink, tried unsuccessfully to connect with someone, or want to satisfy your curiosity, you will find useful information about safely exploring your BDSM fantasies online in its pages.

Recently, I watched the deaths of two friends play out very differently because one was a cis woman and the other was trans.

I talk about the medical inequality that served one woman and destroyed another on my blog. (BTW, you can help the latter's family out at gofundme.)

I often wonder how many marriages end because spouses are too constrained by society's restrictions to communicate honestly about their sexual needs. When I played the online dating game, I sometimes would see profiles that reminded me of my ex-husband. Fortunately, he had moved to another state, so I didn't have to worry about meeting him by accident. Still, the thought inspired a short story.

After all how do you respond when you find your ex-husband hanging out at the restaurant where you planned to meet your "Blind Date"?

Now, Blind Date is one of seven stories in Explicit Books Publishing's second collection Seduction: Steamy Sexy Short Stories (Seven Erotic Nights - Diary Book 2).

In addition, the collection includes "Back to School" in which an admin error forces Jordan and Dennis to share a dorm room. Older than their classmates, they decide to stick together. But Jordan's past threatens to keep them apart.

Read both "Blind Date" and "Back to School" in Seduction: Steamy Sexy Short Stories (Seven Erotic Nights - Diary Book 2) along with "Foxy Den Motel" by M. Christine, "What You Wear" by Roger Leatherwood, and "Bear With Me," "Hard Times," and "Home Invitation" by Lynn Lake -- all for only $2.99!

Writing erotica allows all kinds of opportunities, including the ability to take revenge on those who've treated us poorly in love. Of course, if a character is sufficiently fictionalized, they'll never know we eviscerated them in story. But, it still can be great fun for the writer.

One of my favorite stories, "Salt for His Wounds," started out as that type of revenge porn. Since then, it surpassed all expectations, winning an award, published in an anthology, spawning an entire series of stories about the main characters.

Now, "Salt for His Wounds" appears in the first collection from Explicit Books Publishing: Breathless: Steamy Sexy Short Stories (Seven Erotic Nights - Diary Book 1).

Explicit Books publishes X-rated erotic fiction from professional writers and storytellers for adult audiences with a taste for sexually explicit prose.

In "Salt for His Wounds," when Eleanor's ex-husband shows up begging for a second chance, she asks her young, gorgeous next door neighbor for a favor. Mick takes full advantage of the opportunity.

Breathless: Steamy Sexy Short Stories (Seven Erotic Nights - Diary Book 1) also includes "Goa" by Dena Hankins, "The Vodka Talking" by Roger Leatherwood, "Thrill Ride" by Lynn Lake, "Cheat On Me Will You" by Lynn Lake, "Tamar" by Daniel Burnell, and "Swinging Soiree" by Lynn Lake -- all for only $2.99!

As the shadow of a repressive piety movement spreads across the system's free worlds, the Lady Cassandra and her slaves must flee home. The Dominatrix persuades her loyal clients to smuggle her out of the city where she lives. Exiled to the desert, she contacts Spyder, captain of the spaceship Trouble, who offers her only hope for salvation.

When he rushes to her aid, Spyder's troubles follow him. The delay caused by Lady Cassandra's rescue angers the influential and overdue government official on board and infuriates Creeper, the notorious criminal who owns the cargo in Trouble's hold. Spyder struggles to make up time and meet his commitments, but Creeper accepts no excuses and suffers no delays. He sets a reward for his illicit shipment's return and bounty hunters chase the ship from one end of the system to another. When rumors of the stolen cargo reach the authorities, they join the hunt for Trouble as well.

Pursued both by the law and the lawless, Spyder and his navigator exploit every evasive maneuver and smuggler's trick they know. But, Spyder's troubles find the ship's location with uncanny precision. A price on his head and his ship, Spyder sets Trouble's course for the only planet in the system out of reach of criminals and cops alike. There one crew member's past catches up to her. When another disappears, Spyder learns the true meaning of trouble.

Spyder's Trouble now available from Circlet Press.

When I originally wrote Searching, a twist on the story of two dominants searching for a slave they can share, I thought it was a one-time visit with the characters.

But, when I started putting together stories for Who Tops Who, Theresa insisted on explaining how she, a FemDom who had never been in a vanilla relationship, ended up married to a dominant male.

Of course, given the nature of their relationship, that required Richard to tell his story. And, since it's only fair, I decided to give Jesse a chance to share his journey as well.

Now you can read all four stories in one collection, Leather Home, available today in print and ebook.

Leather Home includes:

Theresa: Richard admits to boorish behavior, but Theresa has no use for his apology. Then, he persuades her to accept a ride home from him and proves his integrity.

Richard: Theresa fascinated Richard from the first time he saw her. But how does he entice her into considering more than a casual relationship with another dominant?

Searching: Two dominants love each other but need someone who submits to them both. Just how far will young Jesse go to serve the lovely Lady Theresa?

Jesse: Jesse finds the perfect Mistress, the woman he trained all his life to serve. Unfortunately, her husband also finds Jesse attractive.

#BlackLivesMatter, #ICantBreathe, #HandsUpDontShoot ... hashtags and headlines that permeate the Internet.

Coincidentally, I've been reading Barbara Hambly's compelling historical murder mystery series about a free man of color set in 1830s New Orleans.

Today on my blog I look at how the Benjamin January series shows racism in America then and how it doesn't look terribly different now.

When the release date for the 50 Shades of Grey movie was announced, Laura Antoniou conceived of the brilliant idea of bringing authors of BDSM themed literature together to create a place for readers to go for more.

And so Beyond 50! was born to point readers whose curiosity was piqued and who would like to find more BDSM fiction to read -- sensual romances, gritty thrillers, spell-binding fantasy, darkly passionate suspense and horror, dramatic historical adventures, edgy erotica, honest memoirs. From short stories to long novels, from subtle and light to explicit and nasty, from fiction to helpful and sexy nonfiction to help bring your more risqué thoughts to life!

As part of this project, I recorded a short excerpt from Spyder's Trouble for KinkyCast. You can hear me read starting at 28 minutes.

Last November, I started National Novel Writing Month without an outline for the first time in ages. I only had partial backstories for four characters and an inciting incident.

The words flowed and I had a fabulous time getting to know those characters. When I finished the book, it was so different than anything I had written before, I had no clue what to do with it. So I sent a note to Cecilia Tan founder and publisher of Circlet Press.

"Would you believe I wrote a BDSM space opera novella? No idea where this came from. I don't write space opera and my specfic and erotica have never crossed paths before."

Two months later, Circlet Press had acquired the rights to Spyder's Trouble and I began working with Circlet editor Gabrielle Harbowy.

Cecilia even hired my boy, Patrick, to create the fabulous cover art above.

Spyder's Trouble: Ignoring threats from the owner of the cargo in his spaceship's hold and the anger of his influential and overdue passenger, Spyder risks Trouble, his life, and his crew to rescue the Dominatrix Lady Cassandra.

Available in ebook next month and in print in February or March of 2015.

Jesse first appeared in Searching as the young man who would do almost anything to serve the lovely Lady Theresa.

But, when Lady Theresa and Sir Richard go back to Portland from the B&B where they met Jesse, he's forced to confront what he's done and what he's become.

Jesse found the perfect Mistress in the Lady Theresa, the woman he trained all his life to serve. Unfortunately, her husband, Sir Richard, also finds Jesse attractive.

Beginning this year, I made my short story collections available in print. And recently, after much searching, Patrick found a payment processor that won't rip off my readers and that will (without charging outrageous fees) accept payment for erotic fiction.

To celebrate these two milestones and to simplify your holiday gift shopping, for a limited time I'm offering massive markdowns on all the books I have in print, including first editions.

Now through midnight PST Cyber Monday (December 1, 2014), get up to 45 percent off on my short story collections, novels (including those by Korin Dushayl), and poetry book. I'll sign them and ship them to you for Solstice/Yule/Christmas/Kwanza/Festivus/mid-Chanukah giving.

Each short story collection has two editions. The special collector's editions include the color covers for each individual short story. (If you need help figuring out which short story collections might be most appreciated, you can search for stories by category. Just make sure the "Include Collections" box is checked.) You can even get a copy of Leather Home before its release in January.

Richard first showed up in my stories when I wrote Searching, a twist on the story of two dominants searching for a slave they can share.

When I started putting together stories for Who Tops Who, Theresa insisted on explaining how she, a FemDom who had never been in a vanilla relationship, ended up married to a dominant male.

Of course, given the nature of their relationship, that required Richard to tell his story. (And, since it's only fair, I decided to give Jesse a chance to share his journey -- his tale will be available next month.)

In "Richard," available today, Theresa fascinated him from the first time he saw her. But how does he entice her into considering more than a casual relationship with another dominant?

"The race for the United States Senate is going to be close -- in fact it's going to be so close that a handful of voters may decide who controls the Senate in Washington," admits one Republican supporter. "People of like-minds need to stick together so as to avoid the rise of a government that is in complete conflict with their values." He wrote those words to scare GOP voters into forking over money and getting to the polls for the midterm election.

But, unless your values are Tea Party ignorance and obstructionism, you must Vote Blue. If you don't vote, or you vote for Republicans or third party candidates, you are handing the United States government over to right wing nut jobs who can't spell, but are determined to take away your health care, your reproductive rights, your ability to earn more than slave wages, your weekends, your vacations, your home, and your retirement funds.

I discuss what's at stake in detail on my blog. Please read, share, and comment. We need to get the word out to overcome voter apathy, disenfranchisement, and Koch brother lies.

Sometimes sexual attraction ignores D/s orientation. I've known couples who were both submissive, and dominants who wore the collar of the person they fell in love with. My own boy, Patrick, has never identified as a submissive. He was more of a dominant, and a bit of a sadist, when I met him. But he demonstrates his love to me by submitting and serving and he wears my collar.

In four tantalizing tales, Who Tops Who explores how dynamic dominants resolve their conflicting desires when they find each other irresistible.

You can now purchase Who Tops Who in paperback for $10.95. The Special Collector's Edition for $21.95 includes the short story covers with the gorgeous models who helped inspire some of the stories. If you prefer ebooks, you can find the collection at all your favorite retailers.

Who Tops Who includes:

Chocolate Cake: Her submissive toys wait for her at home, but Louise finds an offer by an attractive Dom as tempting as Chocolate Cake. (First published in One Night Only: Explicit Erotica, edited by Violet Blue.)

FemDom Fairy Tale: A FemDom's offhand remark about a photograph at an erotic art show draws a handsome man's attention. But, when two dominants find each other attractive, which one chooses to kneel? (First published in Desire Presents.)

Switch: Liza finds it difficult to maintain control around Emanuel, but can't resist his offer to share his slave with her. Then she learns his secret.

Theresa: Richard admits to boorish behavior, but Theresa has no use for his apology. Then, he persuades her to accept a ride home from him and proves his integrity.

I was thrilled to learn Monday that my nonfiction article "What Some Women Tops and Bottoms Have in Common" was awarded the National Leather Association -- International Cynthia Slater Nonfiction Article Award.

If you'd like to celebrate banned books week by reading some books currently banned by retailers, I can offer a large selection.

I discuss why and where my books have been banned on my blog. I also explain why you should care about retailers' arbitrary and capricious content guidelines, even if you don't enjoy those particular books.

Sometimes characters hide things from their creator, their secrets so deep and dark that I must write about them before I can learn the hidden truth.

"Switch" started out as a simple story about two dominants and how they resolved their attraction to each other, the last story for Who Tops Who? available next month.

I only discovered Emanuel's secret a few seconds before Liza did, and I believe I was more shocked than she.

In "Switch," Liza finds it difficult to maintain control around Emanuel, but can't resist his offer to share his slave with her.
August 20, 2014
Some characters insist on having their entire story told from beginning to end all at once. Others only reveal what happens next after waiting a while. And, still others get an urge to share what came before, months or years after I've told their story.

"Theresa," who first appeared in "Searching," falls into that latter category.

Richard promises to join the conversation next, but for now, you can learn how the two dominants met and got acquainted in "Theresa."

Richard admits to boorish behavior, but Theresa has no use for his apology. Then, he persuades her to accept a ride home from him and proves his integrity.

Are you a man or a woman? Most adults consider that a silly question. But for many, that can be the most difficult question they ever have to answer. On my blog today, I discuss another question, one frequently asked by trans men and women: "Do I pass?" How you answer that question may be more important than you realize.

Last month, I wrote a blog post about why right-wing, evangelical, misogynists should not be allowed to call themselves "pro life" given that they're really just members of the forced-pregnancy movement.

And, as an article I tweeted yesterday demonstrated (again), these prudes are part of the anti-sex movement determined to remove all pleasurable sex from the world, whether person-to-person, in literature, or on film.

Unfortunately, because people who enjoy sex apparently don't vote, the prudes succeeded in getting the United Kingdom to adopt a ridiculous set of "filters" to prevent anyone from accessing "porn" online. Of course, the reality is some porn still gets through, but sites that offer support to teens, abuse victims, breast cancer patients, etc., as well as anything that might be feminist or support rights for sexual minorities, are blocked.

I discovered last week, that my site has been blocked by three major UK ISPs simply because of its URL. So, I've set up a mirror site. Fans who live in countries, such as the UK, that block eroticawriter.net can now visit frederickbooks.com and get the exact same content.

So you if you know someone who lives in a repressive country such as the UK (or, for that matter, the US) who has difficulty accessing my site, please point them to frederickbooks.com.

When I first joined the indie revolution by producing books of my previously published short stories, I never imagined how quickly my body of work would outgrow this website. But I keep writing.

Currently, I offer 48 short stories and 11 themed collections for sale. How does anyone who visits this website determine what they want to read (unless they're a devoted fan, consuming everything I write)?

Since I write a wide variety of stories about every sexual and D/s orientation with a plethora of fetishes -- very few people will enjoy absolutely everything.

Patrick worked for months to create the solution. Now you can search the website for stories including any one (or combination) of 26 categories. You can check off as many (or as few) of the categories as you want, then select for either stories with any of the categories or stories that only have all of them. (And you can choose whether or not to include the collections with short stories in the search.) So if you want lesbian sex with D/s and S&M or if you just want lesbian sex with romance, you can find the stories most likely to match your interests.

For each story, the search results show you the cover, a short blurb, and what fetishes are included. If the story is available in a collection(s) (and most are) you can see which one(s) to help you determine if you just want to purchase that single short story, or a collection including it and others with the same theme. And, of course, each story/collection has links to where it's available for sale and a button if you want to add it to your Goodreads shelf.

You can also search by title or view a list of all collections or all short stories.

Do you see a category we've missed or one you'd like me to write about? Let us know on the new contact page.

I'm not pro-abortion. I believe any decision about whether or not to have a baby should be up to the individuals involved, especially the woman who must carry it in her womb for nine months, risk her life to deliver it, and commit to caring for it for a couple of decades.

But, I get really tired of the hypocrites who fight against sex education and contraception and then call themselves "pro life" because they try to stop women from having abortions.

Today on my blog I redefine the concept of "pro life," and call the hypocrites what they are.

Last year, I wrote several stories with a specific editor and a specific publication in mind. But about halfway through each, I recognized the stories had veered off in a direction that wouldn't fit in her collection. I saw a theme emerging and I combined them with other stories sharing the same concept into the collection Second Chances, six sexy stories about getting a second shot at the gold ring.

Proposal -- Tangled Webs: The evening appears perfectly arranged for him to pop the question. But, Christopher's proposition takes Geraldine on an unanticipated sexual adventure.

Starting Over: When her pet walked out on her, she stayed away from parties because it hurt to watch other women playing with their toys. But, a friend coerces her into attending a unique event. (Condensed version originally published as "FemDom Party.")

My collections develop from patterns. When I notice several short stories that share a theme (or a fetish), I pull them together so folks who enjoy that type of story can get several for a lower price than if they bought all the stories individually.

Ladies in Love evolved when I realized I had four Lesbian love stories available in various collections. So, I wrote two more, only available individually or in this collection, and went looking for cover art.

In Ladies in Love you will find a variety of combinations: butch FemDoms who likes femme bottoms, a femme FemDom who likes butch bottoms, femmes who like femmes, butches who like butches, and some combinations involving more than two.

Now available in ebook at All Romance, Smashwords, Amazon, and other retailers, Ladies in Love includes:

Empty Seat: Laura offers Alex a nightcap as thanks for help with a presentation to a prospective client. But they never order drinks, because the southbound train introduced a masochist to the first sadist willing to test her boundaries.

Every story has twists and turns. Characters make choices that change the outcome, sometimes drastically. At other times the characters just take another path to the same destination.

In Fork in the Road I explore those twists and turns in three stories -- each of which is told two different ways -- showing how that Fork changes people's lives, and relationships.

Now you can purchase Fork in the Road in paperback for $10.95. The Special Collector's Edition for $21.95 includes all the short story covers. And, of course the ebook remains available for only $3.99 at various retailers.

Winners & Losers: When he finally walks away from the blackjack table, Jeffrey finds someone worth gambling on. In two short stories, whether Jeffrey wins or loses determines his approach to Lisa, and her reaction.

I don't drink coffee, but I love tea. My choice of coffee shop is based on its tea selection. Normally, if I'm in a coffee (or tea) shop it's to sit and meet with someone and enjoy the establishment's refreshments. I get frustrated when my ability to do so is hampered (or even prevented) by folks who have parked themselves and their computer for hours at a time. Find my rant on this practice on my blog today.

When I started looking over the dozens of short stories of mine that magazines, anthologies, etc. had published, Cougar Conquests was the first theme that jumped out.

Now you can purchase Cougar Conquests in paperback for $10.95. The Special Collector's Edition for $21.95 includes all of the short story covers with the gorgeous models. And, of course the ebook remains available for only $4.99 at various retailers.

On two different occasions, I have taken someone who was under my protection to a dental school for care. If you have the time, it provides a less expensive dentistry option for someone who doesn't have insurance. Many of the patients are elderly because they are the ones who have the time, do not have the resources to otherwise obtain dental care, and provide good teaching cases -- a factor in being chosen as a patient.

If you worked all day with future dentists and old folks, an attractive woman who was neither student or patient, and therefore not off limits, might look very appealing. Of course if her mother, the patient, tries to fix her up with your student, it might make things a bit awkward.

In " how can Cindy flirt with the beautiful blonde dental instructor while her mother propositions the student examining her teeth on Cindy's behalf?

"Scooting closer, Cindy pressed her thigh tight against the other woman's. Jean turned, lifted Cindy's chin with two fingers, and leaned over. Cindy tilted her head back in invitation and Jean pressed her lips against Cindy's, her hand sliding back behind Cindy's neck."

In 2004, several accomplishments pushed me from wannabe toward professional writer. I sold my first two short stories, I received three honorable mentions in short story contests, and "Salt for His Wounds," the first story in Eleanor & Mick won first place (and $100) in a contest for a now-defunct website.

A year later, Midnight Showcase's Sweet Revenge anthology included the story, but Eleanor stuck around and insisted I reveal more details about her journey of sexual exploration and insight.

Now you can purchase Eleanor & Mick in paperback for $10.95. The Special Collector's Edition for $21.95 includes all of the short story covers, with the gorgeous models who helped inspire some of the stories. And, of course the ebook remains available for only $3.99 at various retailers.

Salt for His Wounds: Salt for His Wounds: When Eleanor's ex-husband shows up begging for a second chance, she asks her young, gorgeous next door neighbor for a favor. Mick takes advantage of the opportunity.

Paid in Full: Mick's army buddy finds Eleanor hot and makes a deal with Mick. But, if Mick really loved Eleanor would he let another man have sex with her?

Parents who refuse to provide accurate sex education for their own children often become caretakers of their teenagers' grandchildren.

Lessons Learned, one of only two of my collections with all original stories never published by any magazine or anthology, includes four sizzling hot FemDom love stories about women who come to terms with their dominant sides and discover that makes them more attractive to the men they love.

The many men I've met who are in love with women they had hoped they could convince to become FemDoms, but who cling to vanilla relationship constructs, inspired the stories. Perhaps those men could learn something from these stories (or share them with those women in hopes of giving them ideas).

Now you can purchase Lessons Learned in paperback for $10.95 or the Special Collector's Edition for $21.95. And, of course the ebook remains available for only $4.99 at various retailers.

The collection includes:

Tea Party: What if the first time your best friend drags you to a FemDom "Tea Party" you see your former boyfriend serving canapes naked?

Blind Date: How do you respond when you find your ex-husband hanging out at the restaurant where you planned to meet your "Blind Date"?

To Serve: If you love a vanilla woman and you only want "To Serve," how do you introduce her to the lifestyle without scaring her away?

Change in View: What if a "Change in View" alters the attitude of the man you mentored so he could find his perfect Mistress?

Now that I've completed the bulk of the work required to publish my collections in paper, I am delighted to be writing new stories. Today, I release the first new short story I've published since December.

I frequently ride the rails between Oregon and Seattle. When I traveled alone, I always tried to get a single seat so I didn't have to worry about someone peeking over my shoulder and then taking offense at what I wrote. Or worse, someone who wanted to talk about the story they wrote in second grade that if I bought I could turn into a bestseller. For me the train ride is prime writing time -- when I arrive and am asked how the trip was, I answer in word count.

The one person I never met on the train, was someone I found sexually attractive. But, what if...

"Empty Seat" starts with a train ride, a deadline, and someone who wants to sit in that empty seat. At the end of the trip, Louise offers Alex a nightcap as thanks for help with a presentation to a prospective client. But they never order drinks.

Now available at Smashwords for only $1.99.

Last month I read an article about the lack of correlation between social media posts and people actually reading what they share. I had already been thinking about the difference between news consumption now and only a decade or two ago.

So, today I have some thoughts to share on my WordPress blog about the Cacophony of Gossip, Fabrications, Deceptions, Recycled Old News, etc. that assaults us daily on the Internet. I hope you'll find time to read them.

Today, I release a second short story collection in print: Leather Family Dynamics, six sultry stories exploring sexuality in D/s liaisons.

This book was published electronically as Family Dynamics in August, 2013. In October because of Amazon's arbitrary and capricious "content guidelines," I was forced to change the name to Leather Family Dynamics to keep it available for sale on Kindle. Because I want to keep the books linked on Amazon and make it possible for readers to buy the e-book at a discount when they purchase a print copy, I chose to keep the "Leather" (albeit in very small type) in the title of the print book.

You can purchase Leather Family Dynamics in paperback for $10.95. The Special Collector's Edition for $26.95 includes all of the short story covers, with the gorgeous models. And, of course the ebook remains available for only $4.99 at various retailers.

No one asks a mystery writer how many people she's murdered. But, readers too often assume a writer of erotica has personally performed every sex act she writes about. Worse, as Beth Wylde discusses on my blog today, they sometimes try to emulate what they read.

For the past several months, I have spent more time on book production than writing, dedicated to a project which family crises forced me to put on hold last summer. Today, I can finally reveal the scope of the project: paper versions of all my short story collections.

Despite the proliferation of ebooks, many people still prefer to read on paper. And, the only way to keep a book you enjoy for more than a year or two is to purchase a paper copy. Otherwise, you have no guarantee the format readable on most of today's equipment will have a device capable of interpreting it in ten or even five years.

When I started the design work for this project, I debated the cost of color printing which more than doubles, in some cases, the retail price. I decided to give you the choice. I will offer each paper book in two versions: a black and white version with just the stories for $10.95. And a color Special Collector's Editions, ranging in price from $17.95 to $26.95 depending on the length. The Special Collector's Editions will include the color covers of each of the short stories included in that book.

I release the first paper book today, Love Hurts, the first collection (five steamy stories which appeared originally in magazines) I released when I started indie publishing back in 2011.

You can purchase the paperback for $10.95. The Special Collector's Edition for $21.95 includes all of the short story covers, with the gorgeous models. And, of course the ebook remains available for only $3.99 at various retailers.

Next week, I hope to reveal the project which has occupied much of my time the last two months. But, today, I have another individual story for you." Lady Bella" first appeared in a steamy anthology of erotic stories and memoir essays written for a mature audience by writers over the age of 50, Ageless Erotica.

Inspired by people I met at such an event, it tells the story of Steve who attended a leather campout just to capture Lady Bella's attention. But, did he have the balls to gain her favor?

     "Not bad." She ran one long finger along the underside of his engorged cock. "You like CBT, boy?"
     "Yes, Ma'am. Thank you, Ma'am." He'd only tried cock and ball torture once. He wasn't sure he liked it at all.
     "You've served well this afternoon. I'll play with you first after dinner."

Find "Lady Bella" at Smashwords for only $1.99.

I have two blogs. My LiveJournal mirrors this page so anyone who wants to subscribe to this information by RSS can do so. I mostly use my WordPress as a soap box.

As it says there, "I reserve this blog for occasional, longer, thoughtful essays (some of which first appeared as guest posts on other blogs) on subjects ranging from politics to BDSM." Today, I welcome the first guest blogger to stand on my soapbox.

I have known Cecilia Tan for almost a decade. We share many passions and admire each other's work. So, I'm delighted to welcome her to step up onto my soapbox long enough to tell you Why Writing About Female Submission is a Feminist Act
