I love Christmas – and of course I’m still waiting on it! January 5th is Christmas this year and I’m like a five-year-old peeping up the chimney every few minutes. We have had some Christmas already. We spent Christmas Eve with Nick’s family and it was a good one. I think everyone is doing all right.
My sister and BIL came on Christmas evening and I fixed dinner for them and one of Mollie’s old friends. Mollie will be flying cross country mid-January to be in this girl’s wedding. We had a great time, too much food, but it was fun.
I’m hoping some of you got some Amazon gift cards and I’m taking today to remind you of Cassie’s latest book, Cassie’s Life. Having it come out right at Thanksgiving wasn’t my preferred time. There’s a lot going on then. But if you have a little time now and maybe a gift card to use I hope you’ll give it, or any of my books, a try. If you’re still not convinced check out what Ella had to say about it. If you’ve read the book, or plan to, and if you like it, I hope you’ll consider leaving a review on Amazon. You can do it anonymously if you like.
Meanwhile here is an interview I did for Blushing when it came out.
It was a long fight. I loved making up stories in my head, but them? That sounded like work. You must know grammar, spelling, tense, even how to type! All I wanted to do was make up stories. But my characters wouldn’t leave me alone. They insisted I sit down and write their stories. Nearly a dozen years ago, I finally gave in.
It’s great now that I’m retired. I get up, eat a bite of breakfast while I watch GMA and check my blogs and my emails. Then I make a cup of coffee and head to my sun room/ writing room. I gently shove the cats far enough aside to get to the key board and have at it. Often I’m staring into space or even have my eyes closed as I watch and listen to a scene unfold in front of me. Then I simply write what I’ve seen and heard.
Many of my characters have been with me most of my life. These imaginary friends of mine didn’t go away when I grew up. I know them, I love them, and I still find their stories interesting. As a reader, I love series. I love getting to know a character, their friends, their whole lifestyle and see how they react in different situations that life throws at them.
I want that beautiful mountain cabin. I want a large deck with a view down into the valley. I want to enjoy the cool mountain breeze in the summer and to sit inside by a big fire and watch the snow come down in the winter. I think this would be the perfect spot for my husband and me to live out our days.
To reference Star Trek – it’s the closest we’re going to come to a combination transporter/holodeck. With books, I can go anywhere, be anybody, do anything. I can have a new adventure every day, or I can go back and relive a favorite over and over. Books are magic.
My books should be firmly between ‘How to Improve Your Marriage’ and ‘Fifty Shades of Gray.’ I think a little spanking could improve many humdrum marriages, and that more people should give it a try. I’d want it next to Fifty Shades because that’s the only title many of the readers I’m looking for have ever heard. While Fifty Shades hasn’t been listed under great literature, the stories certainly intrigued many people and got them to consider reading spanking stories. I think they would like my characters and their lifestyle very much.
I enjoy most spanking fiction. I’ll read about spanking in historical stories, cowboy stories, paranormal stories, science fiction and occasionally stories about sex clubs with dark dungeons. But my all-time favorites are the stories that could really happen. These are the stories I enjoy reading and writing. I like exploring how spanking could be incorporated into a real marriage. Could this be your neighbor’s life style, maybe your boss, or maybe even you?
Whether you are reading my books or ones by someone else – please read!
