Barring something unforeseen (like me having a panic attack) I’m planning to send my book to Blushing today. Finally it will be in their hands and I can, well… not stop worrying about it, but at least stop tweaking it. I could do that for the next year and still find things I might what to change. Assuming I get it sent, I’ll let you know what happens.
As I begin to ponder what I might like to write next, I’d like to know the type of spanking books you enjoy. I know that’s not all you read, but when you do choose a spanking book what are you looking for?
Some books are sexy and fun. Some are more serious and containing elements of discipline. Some are set in dungeons where the woman is tied down and beaten harshly. There are books containing master/slave scenario. And others are all about age play with daddy doms and littles.
Does the setting matter to you? I’ve read many great books with historical accounts of lords and ladies from Olde England. I’ve enjoyed several that take place on other planets with non-human spankers. I read cowboy books whether historical or current and I love them. And I also enjoy a good spanking story that could be happening in the house next door.
Now what about sex? Sex and spanking go hand in hand. But how much do you want to read? I’ve talked to people who want every detail they can get, I’ve talked to others who are fine with you writing, ‘They had sex.’ and then just want you to get on with the story. Where do you fall?
I’m not asking these questions to try to decide what to write next – I let the characters in my head decide that for me. I’m just really curious. My writing is certainly not how I help provide for my family these days – thank goodness for teacher retirement. But I do like it when my books sell. I know I need to write more sex in my books to get more people to read them.
Cassie tells her stories herself and being a lady, she is not going to share too much detail. My other books contain more sex. But I’d rather write about the emotions and the feelings my characters are experiencing rather than an anatomical overview of how sex is preformed – I’m assuming most of my readers pretty much know how it works. And if they don’t I hope they aren’t expecting the real thing to be like some of the books I’ve read!
I’ve asked a lot of questions here and I’d really like you to answer if you're willing. And umm… lurkers, please help me out here. Honest if you go to comment and hit anonymous, it truly is anonymous. And if you leave a comment and change your mind, you can hit delete and it will go away or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll take it off for you. Or you can answer my questions just to me.
And if my regularly readers what to comment anonymously that’s fine too. There are a few books that are very dark that I’ve loved. Books that I could never write and would never want to participate in the scenarios – but I still enjoyed the book even if I don’t tell everyone I loved it. Just saying…
I hope to hear from lots of you.
