Trick or treat: Have a ‘cheeky’ Halloween!

Pumpkin Buns

When I was a kid, I loved the spooky part of Halloween and preferred to dress in something scary. I was a witch, a vampire, a devil, a ghost. I loved haunted houses, skeletons, fake blood, mummies, and things that go bump in the night.

I especially loved scary stories–even though afterwards, I crept around jumping at the slightest noise. My author friend, Katherine Deane, is celebrating Halloween with some scary excerpts from various authors’ books. She has a  scene from my sci-fi romance Warrior (Breeder 3), which features, hot sex, and scary, scary villains.

Scary stories here

May all your tricks be fun, and all your treats be sweet. Happy Halloween!

#Spanking: the vanilla man – can he be converted?

His-Forever-Summer-Final-500By Tara Finnegan

When Kieran arrives in Corbin’s Bend, he is a non spanko.  So, this leads to the question is it  realistically possible to convert a vanilla man (or indeed woman)? This is a subject that’s been debated over and over.  Some say, no, never: others say yes, definitely, based on their own personal experiences. I suspect the answer is somewhere in the middle as it so often is.

For some, they will be open to new adventures and experiences and be willing to try it out of curiosity. Or they might just try it to please their partner, somewhat reluctantly. And for some of those the gamble will pay off, and they will take to it like the proverbial duck to water. But even at that, there is bound to be a huge learning curve as both partners learn what works for them and what doesn’t. Others may find the whole experience upsetting or off-putting.  Even then, it may not be a complete write off – if they are willing to try again, the experience can get better with practice and confidence.  It can be really hard for a vanilla to get why anyone might want such a strange thing, but even that can come with time and good communication.

If you’re the spanker, there is a balancing act between desiring to please your partner, and the conviction you are brought up with – never use violence, especially against a woman.  And yet she is begging you to spank her? Of course it’s confusing. No wonder it can take time to get it right. It’s going against all you’ve been taught from a young age. You have to throw out the old rule book and start a new one.

In a romance novel it looks so easy, but in real life there is a multitude of hurdles to cross and can take years and a lot of patience to get it right. Many will get there in the end, seeing the benefits gradually outweighing the cons, and that’s the part the aspiring spankee needs to hold on to, especially through the days where the spanker is willing, but just not quite the spanking romance hero yet.  For some though, the reality is, it will be out of the question, they just can’t or don’t want to go there.  Is it worth the risk of asking for it?

I think you would have to ask yourself whether rejection would be worse than never knowing.   And only you know the answer to that.

His Forever Summer Blurb 

Carla Methon has tread on a lot of toes, men’s and women’s alike. But no one could be more dissatisfied with Carla than the lady herself. With a compunction to throw herself at every man within a three mile radius and a serious case of foot in mouth disease, Carla knows she is in desperate need of being taken in hand before she does any more damage to her reputation.

Kieran O’Brien needs to escape a broken relationship and he invites himself to spend a summer with his brother in Corbin’s Bend. But Kieran is a totally unsuspecting vanilla with no idea of the ethos of the community he is about to enter.

The pair strike up an unlikely friendship of vanilla and spice, with one stipulation – it is only a summer fling. By the time Kieran boards his flight to return to Ireland he wishes his summer could last forever. Can he find the courage, not only to admit the extent of his feelings, but to take on the role Carla so desperately needs him to be?

His Forever Summer Excerpt

In  His Forever Summer, Kieran becomes aware it’s a spanking community and he really can’t get his head around the whole concept. When Carla tells him she has an appointment to see a professional disciplinarian, he is horrified. But he’s also very concerned for her safety. She has an appointment with a man she has never met, and is going to his home, based on references provided by him.

“What the heck? Do you realise it’s six thirty? I only just got to sleep,” Carla snapped at Kieran as he barged through the front door.

“Sorry, this couldn’t wait. I can’t let you go through with it. I won’t let you do it. I’ve been awake all night thinking about it. It’s crazy.”

“You can’t stop me! It’s got nothing to do with you, Kieran. I need to face my demons, and be punished for it, and unless you’re going to man up and do the punishing, then I suggest you get the hell out and let me make my own decisions,” Carla snapped with exasperation. She saw his brain catch up with her words.

“And if I punish you, you’ll cancel?”

“Christ, Kieran, I was joking. It’s called sarcasm. We both know you wouldn’t be able to see it through.”

“But if I could?”

“Fine, if you could, and if you could do it properly, then yes, I’ll cancel.” She didn’t for one minute believe there was any likelihood of her not making her appointment.

“So, what exactly do I need to do?” he asked.

“Fuck, you want the step by step guide?”

“How the hell else am I supposed to do it? Or make it mean anything.”

“Shit, you’re serious. Um, okay. I suppose first you need to talk to me about what it is I’ve done. Get me to confess it. Then spank me for each thing, I guess. Maybe pausing in between. Look I don’t really know. I’ve only ever had this done once, when I was young. Every other time it was erotic. But I think you need to be disapproving, authoritative. I doubt you can do that! It’s a crazy idea.” Kieran flinched and she knew she had stung his manhood, although she didn’t mean to. She was just being straight. Her foot in mouth disease was playing up again.

“Let me worry about how I behave! We’re here to discuss how you have behaved. For now I need the practicalities. Like what I’m supposed to use, how many times I’m supposed to hit you. How I know if I’m going too far, or even if I’m not doing it enough. You know what, you go and wait in your room, and give me a key. I’m going to talk to Jim. I’ll get more sense out of him.” Without waiting for a reply, he was gone, snatching her door-keys from inside the front door.

Tara Finnegan Bio:

The accidental writer, that’s me!

A lot of writers will tell you that they dreamed of being a writer for years and were making up stories from they were knee high to a grasshopper. And a lot of them loved English class.

I dodged all forms of essay (not even bothering to look for an original or plausible excuse) and entertained myself and by poor desk mate during my English classes by very rudely paraphrasing and taking the mickey out of Francis Bacon…yep, looking back, that’s probably when I should have had my first good spanking. If not for wasting my own education, then surely for distracting my misfortunate neighbour.
Then I started an affair with my computer, so much so that I nearly had to be surgically removed from it. And what’s an affair without a good measure of hot sex and erotic spanking?

Character Interview from In the Blind by SJ Maylee

In the Blind 267x400On  the hot seat today is Jane Shavers, the heroine of In the Blind, a BDSM romance, by author SJ Maylee.

Cara: Jane, please tell us a little about yourself:

Jane: I grew up on the west side of Chicago. I’ve worked hard and achieved many of my goals, including running my own business. Helping companies across the Chicago area find the talent they need is something I enjoy. I just wish I could figure out the rest of my life. I have a head for business and a heart set on a fairytale ending. I’m not sure I know how to get both.

Cara: How do you think other people see you?

Jane: Rob once told me he admired me because I go after what I want. I agreed with him when it came to my business, but at the time I wasn’t going after what I wanted personally and the comment stung.

Cara: What is your greatest fear?

Jane: I’m afraid my self-doubt will stop me from getting what I want most.

Cara: What do you want more than anything?

Jane: Some might say it’s for my business to exceed. I dream of having many employees and helping countless companies. Achieving all of that would mean nothing if I’m not with the love of my life.

Cara: What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

Jane: Coffee. It may be the real reason I get out of bed, lol.

Cara: What is your greatest regret?

Jane: I’ve thought about this moment a lot. The first time Rob made his intentions clear, I pushed him away. I thought I didn’t trust him, but it was really me I didn’t trust. I use that moment as a guide now and it’s been quite helpful.

Cara: If you could live life over again, would you do something differently?

Jane: My first answer is yes, but now that I’ve thought about it, I don’t think so. I appreciate what I have now because I know what I don’t want and I had to work for it all.

Cara: What is the quality you most like in a man?

Jane: Great question, it’s when they don’t just look at you, but when they really see you. Since I started running my recruiting business, I’ve learned to bury my worries and present my business face to customers. It’s great for business, but it doesn’t serve me well in my personal life.

Cara: What is the last book you read?

Jane: My author knows we have the same taste in books. S.J. is always recommending books to me. I just read the last book in the Breeder series. It rocked. I just have to say one thing. Spin-off. Please!

Cara: Thank you. You’re very sweet. Which living person do you most admire?

Jane: That’s an easy one, my grandpa. He’s incredibly smart, sweet, and so cute. All my life he’s been there with guidance and encouragement. I don’t even want to think about what a mess my life would be if I hadn’t listened to his advice.

Cara: Do you have a motto?

Jane: Work first and then play. I learned that from my Grandpa.

IN THE BLIND BlurbSJ Maylee avatar

Jane thinks she’s ready to take the risks her business and love life desperately need. Rob’s still punishing himself for a broken relationship that wasn’t meant to last. When the pair let an opportunity pass them by, fate steps in and throws them back together. An evening of pitch black unrestrained passion at Club Blind opens her eyes to life’s possibilities. Now, if they don’t fight past their personal demons, they might never truly discover what they need most. If they can open their hearts, it might lead them directly to each other where they can discover their truth. If not, they may forever stay in the blind.

 IN THE BLIND Excerpt:

 Jane 500x328The door continued to open every few minutes. Finally, the woman in front of Jane was taken away. She could see nothing past the door besides black. Until the door closed, she continued gazing into the darkness. How would the loss of sight change the experience? Would she feel more? What would he feel like? Nerves shook through her limbs, and sweat tickled her palms.

The door opened, and she stood straight as a statue. This was crazy. She searched for pockets in her robe. When she found none, she swallowed back a curse.

The escort stopped in front of her. “Are you having second thoughts?” He shifted the goggles higher on his forehead.

“Maybe.”

“Would you like to step back and wait to go or …” He stepped back and cracked the door open. “Sometimes it helps to hear the sounds of the other participants.”

She closed her eyes and took in the moans and let her mind drift to what her body would feel like to make her make those kinds of sounds.

“I don’t want to pressure you. Tell me what you want.”

“Thank you.” She opened her eyes and took a step towards him. The only way was forward. “I’m ready.”

“Good for you.” He reached out and took hold of her hand. “Come on, I’ll take you to the lucky one, for tonight.” He winked and tugged her forward.

Once the door closed behind them, Jane was surrounded by unending black. She looked around, but there was nothing, no end to the darkness. A nervous shiver danced along her spine, followed by thoughts of haunted houses. What would she find around the next corner? Her escort tugged her forward, bringing her back to the night’s purpose.

She needed to remember why she was here. She needed to live in the moment. There was a good chance she was about to touch the man who would give her release.

They slowed, turned a corner, and after a couple more steps they stopped. She swallowed the lump in her throat when her escort placed her hand into another’s.

“Enjoy.” He squeezed her shoulder, and she sensed his presence leave the space.

A pull on her hand forced her feet forward a couple of steps. She stopped just as abruptly when she bumped into a hard chest—the man of the hour. This man would touch her soon, but he wasn’t yet. He was only holding her hand. Her breasts moved with her uneven breathing, and her nipples scraped against his chest.

Why wasn’t he touching her? Was he nervous, too, or having second thoughts? She reached up in curiosity to make sure he wasn’t wearing a pair of night-vision goggles, but only found soft hair. She followed the section of hair to above his shoulder and continued onto smooth skin and around his shoulder to his bicep thick with muscle. Her heart thumped, and her breath quickened as moisture covered her needy pussy.

She breathed deeply, taking in his delicious musky scent. Her hand wandered to his chest and found more of the same, firm skin rounding over firm muscles. A warm hand landed over hers and held her hand tight to his chest. A nose tickled her ear.

“Do you like?”

“Yes,” she admitted.

“I’d like to explore you now, okay?”

“Yes, please.”

She pushed out the breath she held and worked to breathe normally. His hand landed softly on her cheek, fingertips caressed her chin, and then up to her temple. The gentle touches raised a long sleeping yearning within her, and she leaned into his touch.

His thumb swept across her bottom lip. Curiosity wore away her reserve, and she let her tongue reach out and taste his fingers. One digit pushed into her mouth, and she sucked lightly, enjoying his clean taste.

The finger left her mouth, a second of waiting, and then his mouth crushed down on hers. His lips were firm and demanding, feeding her hunger. He ran his fingers through her hair, and then his warm wet tongue swept through her mouth. Back and forth, deep, then gentle, their tongues dueled. She explored more of him as her need to know him intimately soared.

His touch lingered around her shoulders and down her sides. When he found her ass, he kneaded the globes. The kiss ended as abruptly as it started, leaving her wanting.

She heard nothing but the driving rhythm of the music, each track feeding right into another. The current song enchanted her, and her hips swayed. No one could see her, so there was no reason for self-conscious thoughts. The brilliance of the club hit her with full force. It didn’t matter who she was or who he was. Tonight, they celebrated life and the pleasures they could bring their bodies. Everyone deserved pleasure. Even her.

Searching for the right inspiration…

I’ve been searching for “inspiration photos” to give to the cover artist who is redoing the covers of my Rod and Cane spanking romances False Pretenses, Body Politics, and Disciplinary Measures. I’ve learned that a picture helps to convey what is in my mind. But finding the right picture(s), can be a challenge.

My thoughts on some of the photos I’ve run across in my search:

  1. Is it just me, or does she look a little Photoshopped?
  2. He’s just not that into you, girl.
  3. He’s in for a nasty surprise. I suspect she’s a vampire.
  4. Sexy woman gone feral.
  5. With a dress like this, who needs wings?
  6. Okay, what’s wrong with his other eye? 
  7. This guy is on a lot of book covers.
  8. Wet T-shirt Contest.
  9. Howdy, ma’am.
  10. OMG. I just killed a hooker.
  11. Sexy image concept, but it misses the mark for me, because he is too perfectly posed.
  12. Sexy retro image. Boob grab could be problematic for a book cover.
  13. I see this guy on lot of book covers too.
  14. See what I mean?

That’s all folks! Hope you enjoyed the show.

BTW, I’m planning on a January 2015 release for Reasonable Doubts (Rod and Cane 5). Liz Davenport’s story will finally be told!

#SatSpanks, #8Sunday, from Warrior: how to hide a body…

Warrior is out! It released on Tuesday, and is now available!

AMAZON ♥ Amazon UK ♥ Barnes & Noble ♥ All Romance

Now on with Saturday Spankings and Weekend Writing Warriors, two weekend blog hops in which authors present an eight sentence excerpt. Here’s mine, from Warrior:

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00014]Anika sank to her knees and vomited.

When the retching ceased, she rose and tested her limb. Her injured arm, though sore, had regained function. Her cheekbone, however, throbbed with greater intensity. Anika fingered her face. Nothing broken. But she would have colorful bruises to explain.

But her biggest problem was how to dispose of Icor’s body.

Warrior (Breeder 3), released on Tuesday, already has received a couple of great reviews from book bloggers:

“I only found out at the end that there were others before this one, which speaks clearly of this being a stand alone novel…The story has some very hot scenes that are not meant for younger readers but they are tastefully written. I enjoyed my trip to her world and will be returning soon!! Definitely a five fang book.” – Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock
 
 “I enjoyed this well written and attention grabbing science fiction tale filled with romance, action, adventure and little discipline… This is a wonderful story that had me on the edge of my seat until the end.” – Booklover Sue
 
“Warrior is a well-written story with a great plot and well-developed characters.” – Mixed Book Bag.

“I loved this book! Tara is such a feisty character despite the planet she decided to settle on. With her bright pink hair and attitude a mile wide, she makes you smile right away. This is also the second book in the Breeders series, but I completely enjoyed it and it just made me want to read the first book in the series, because the world is really interesting and I can’t wait to read more.”The Romance Studio

For authors: a new way to do character interviews…

Ideas and creativity in businessIf you’re like me, when you interview a character from a work of fiction, you ask leading questions that will unveil the story, reveal something interesting about the character, show the conflict, etc., etc. etc. You fashion the questions from the story itself.

But here’s another way: forget the story. Interview your character as if he/she were a real person and not in your book at all. Ask him/her some of the questions that you the author have been asked in interviews.

Darkest Cravings, a book blog, sent me questions for a character interview for the release of Warrior, a futuristic sci-fi romance. Anika, the heroine, was asked about her favorite hero in fiction, her fashion sense, her most treasured possession, her motto. Anika lives in the future on another planet. She doesn’t read fiction! You would think those types of questions would have no bearing on a science fiction romance, but the results were amazing.

The story got told in a unique, fresh, and organic way without any leading. You can see the results here (click on the link, then scroll down just a tad):

I would love to know what you thought of it. Check out the interview, and please come back and tell me.

Yes, it has spanking in it!

You can help!

As you may know, the first two books of the Breeder series were published by Loose Id. However, I self-published Warrior, and it is my first BIG indie venture (I re-released Unexpected Consequences last month, but other than the cover, everything was pretty much done.).

Here’s how you can help make Warrior a success:

  1. If you intend to buy Warrior, please buy it on release day or sooner thereafter. Early sales help rankings, which boosts visibility.
  2. Consider writing a review. It doesn’t have to be long.
  3. If you see a post from me on Facebook about Warrior, please share it. Your posts are great too!
  4. Remember, you can also share any blog post by clicking on the share buttons below.

Thank you for all your support!
